Marlena is great. It's really that simple. I met Marlena a year prior but wasn't ready to do business with her yet. When I reached out she jokingly said "I've been waiting for you. Lets do this!" But she was serious. She remembered our conversation about me wanting a multifamily and within a few days we were looking at properties. After that initial outing she learned more about what I was looking for and the listings she sent reflected that. Within a few weeks I found a property and put an offer on it which was accepted. I was super excited, but (there is always a but) the seller started to act in bad faith. I was growing annoyed and frustrated but Marlena kept me up to date, repeatedly explained to me what my options were and assured me that if this didn't go through there were other houses we could go after. I eventually withdrew my offer (probably the best decision I made) and as fate would have it a few weeks later I found the property I just closed on. Honestly from the listing I didn't have a real interest (judging books by the cover) but Marlena implored me to at least check it out, and I am glad that I did! More important than showing me the property Marlena advised me on the most important thing, how to put in the winning bid. There were 12 offers on this house but because of Marlena's knowledge we were successful. And in the end that is what matters the most. Nothing but great things to say about Marlena and her team. I will be working with her again and have already recommended her to several of my friends.

Marlena and her team provided our family with excellent and timely service. She has excellent communication skills and d emonstrates knowledge of the surrounding neighborhoods. She negotiated firmly on our behalf and ensured that all of our needs were met. Purchasing our home during the pandemic was very stressful but Marlena and her team took much of the stress from our shoulders. Marlena McWilliams provided us with a virtual experience that allowed us to confidently find our dream home from across the country. The team is professional and organized with documents and procedures and most of all they are extremely timely (a necessary feature in the home purchasing process). I will recommend Marlena and her team to any individual or family looking to purchase a home.

Marlena McWilliams was amazing. We felt like she always had our best interest in mind. She was attentive to our needs, c ompassionate when we didn't know what was going on and needed a little more attention, and very informative. I never thought twice about her expertise. Her team was amazing as well. We loved her and will absolutely use her again. We see why she has been given so many accolades. Well deserved!

Marleana’s team is aggressive in a good way, they know what they are doing and are there with you every step of the wa y. Relocating from out of state is tough and I’m glad I had Marleana’s team each and every step of the way. They handled everything from offers, inspections, fix list invoices, the whole 9, thanks again! Dan and Sam, we know who to call further down the road in the DMV area, thanks again for all that you do!

Marlena's hustle is unmatched! I loved her enthusiasm and clear vision for presenting our home to buyers. Our home was sold before we were able to wrap our heads around moving. She is definitely the consummate agent and I'm supremely thankful that I had an opportunity to work with her.

Marlena masterfully executed the negotiation of my first home purchase within a week of meeting her. The offer was soon finalized and I was able to get to closing within 30 days. It was a very smooth and seamless process and overall a pleasure to work with her during this momentous chapter of my life.

As I am sitting in the dinning room of my new home, the sun light seeping in and I feel a sense immense content. I was g uided by Marlena's expertise in the market. She knew how to talk to me, how to explain the little things, and most importantly how to live within my means! I am ever so grateful for her and the entire McWilliams staff. I could not have done this without her.
