There are many things I can say about the high quality of service I provide to my home seller and home buyer clients, but probably none would be as credible as testimonials from some of my recent clients themselves.
So please take a moment to read the following testimonials. I hope they indicate my experience and integrity, as well as make it clear how much I enjoy helping people with their real estate needs.
"My fiancé and I just closed on our first home, and we could not have done it without Marianne! She is an absolutely incredible agent. She truly listened to our needs and patiently showed us several sets of homes within our criteria. She really knows the market and has extensive knowledge of Columbia area neighborhoods. When we found “the one,” she guided us knowledgeably through the entire process of making an offer, coming to an agreement, and closing on the house. I can’t recommend her highly enough, and I’m sure she is just as great on the selling side of things as well. Do yourself a favor: if you’re buying or selling a house in Columbia, call Marianne!" Katie Beck, Columbia
"Marianne understood exactly what we were looking for. Without her, we would not have found our dream home!" Scott and Racheal, Columbia
"...Marianne is very professional. She worked for us and represented us well when selling our house. She fought for a fair price on the house and when issue arose, she was on top of them until they were resolved. This was our second time using her and we will use her again if the situation arises." Kevin and Laurie, Irmo
Marianne was recommend to me by a coworker of mine and I must say best decision I made. Through out the entire process she was there the whole entire time even in situations that was not part of what a agent should handle. I was also a first time home buyer so of course, I had no prior knowledge of the home buying process but she set my mind at ease and made sure I was well versed on the process. I can only say my entire process with Marianne was wonderful and if you're looking for some one to either sell your home or assist with the buying process I can assure you your search for the right agent stops here. I can't think her enough for the help with looking, choosing, and closing on my new home as of 5/3/12.....Thanks again Ms. Washington"
"I purchased my first home with Marianne in 2008. She knows the greater Midlands area very well. Through the process I felt Marianne always had my best interest in mind. We have been in the house 4 years and really enjoyed it. Currently we are in the process of looking for a larger home with a little land and Marianne has already began showing us properties and will be listing our current home once we decide to sell. Marianne also knows plenty of contractors for home maintenance and projects."
"This lady has integrity! Marianne always puts the interest of her client first. In my dealings with her, she has always looked out for the best value for my money - as opposed to - selling me the biggest house. I have known her for 10+ years and have bought and sold 4 houses with her and I am sure I am going to continue my business relationship with her, because she is simply the best. Half of town know her and the other half are lining up to meet her! I highly recommend her." Justin Dagit, Columbia
"As first time buyers Marianne made buying a house easier than we thought possible. She found the perfect house for us in just a few weeks and negotiated a fantastic price. Marianne's is a lovely person whose local knowledge and expertise are indispensable! If we ever buy a house again we will definitely use Marianne".
"We had the pleasure of working with Marianne when we relocated to Columbia. She is extremely knowledgeable of the greater Columbia area. She also was extremely organized, and was able to efficiently take us to see a variety of homes that met our criteria during weekends we were able to travel to Columbia. The process was smooth from start to close."
"I have used Marianne for all of my realty needs since 1989 and I have never been disappointed. I have referred her to numerous people who have also been very pleased with her service. Marianne is very knowledgeable about the Columbia area and the realty industry. I won't use anyone else for my real estate needs." Susan Allison, Columbia
