Just days ago, we sold our Alameda townhome, which for us is certainly good news! But our own good news goes far beyond the selling of a home.
Marilyn Schumacher, our Realtor, is the actual “good news behind the news.” We first met Marilyn almost 15 years ago, when we downsized from a large San Leandro family home. Marilyn was highly recommended to us by a network of Alameda friends, all who had purchased their homes through Marilyn. Based on their positive recommendations, Marilyn became our Realtor. Upon first meeting her, we were impressed and pleased with the quality of service Marilyn provided. We were not to be disappointed, as her skill and knowledge became more and more evident as our working relationship continued. So, in late 2018, when we decided to make a next move we immediately contacted Marilyn.
In real estate (as in most businesses), there is a spectrum of qualified people, ranging from poor to mediocre to excellent. In making comparisons and in hearing the stories of others over the years, we’ve concluded that Marilyn is beyond excellent; she is outstanding in the field! Her expertise is evidenced in the sheer number of successful sales transactions she has maintained and exceeded over many years. Marilyn knows real estate…inside and out. She consistently keeps abreast of the market, and all trends related to it. Marilyn’s reputation among her colleagues and peers speaks for itself. The mention of her name is cause for respect and admiration; the obvious outcome is that Marilyn is trusted by all have worked with her, both clients and co-workers. She is thoroughly professional in her work. It is evident to us, that Marilyn’s goal is to do what is best and most beneficial for her clients. And as her clients, we have the utmost trust in Marilyn. Her suggestions and advice have proven to be reliable and based on correct information.
In a nutshell: we are thankful and grateful to Marilyn! In addition to her being our “go to Realtor”, we consider her a treasured friend!
So, that is our good news to share! It’s simply too good to keep to ourselves!
