Marianne Robinson....Definitely NOT Business-as-usual.
In today's get-em-in.....get-em-out market, there is definitely something to be said for old-fashioned values and service. After all, once you shed away the legal mumbo jumbo and crunching numbers, what is a 'realtor' really for?
With Marianne Robinson you get the technical side, along with a free education as to the how and why...but you also get way more.
You get a person with over 25+ years in the Treasure Valley. She knows the trends, the areas, the traffic, the schools and the forecast. You also get a realtor that goes the extra mile, literally. You want to sell and your property needs some work, she not only 'tells' you, but shows you why and how to 'get her done.' This was enormous in helping us to get the most from the sale of our home.
Have your sights set on the existing property to buy? What does it need before you plunk down what in today's market will be a high value offer. Whoops, overlooked that sprinkler problem, that horrible kitchen flooring, that leaky plumbing. None of that will be a surprise if you have Marianne as your realtor.
Finally, in a world where we are all stretched for time, because if you're her client, she'll make that time for you and you won't even know she juggled ten calendar events to make that happen. That is service.
Do yourself a big favor and retain this outstanding professional as your next real estate broker. You'll walk away feeling that you got everything you paid for and then some! 2018
Marianne, this is our first time purchasing a new home being completed. You exceeded our expectations as our Realtor in seeing things were corrected with the builder prior to our move in. We thank you so much for your professional manner in handling our new home purchase. "Micron Relocation" 2005
Marianne, thanks so much for making our home purchase go so smoothly. We weren't sure how well it would work looking for a home from three states away, but you came through with flying colors. Your expertise was invaluable. From working to understanding our housing needs and wants, to emailing listings and plenty of follow-up photos, helping trim the choices, and making sure we asked the critical questions of the seller, you were on the ball and kept the process on track. We are very pleased with our new home. Thanks again for all your hard work. 2005
Being "first time" home buyers, you addressed some critical issues we were not aware of. We are happy and grateful you were there for us. Thank you Marianne for being our Realtor. 2005
Thank you Marianne, for helping to make our transition to Idaho. We appreciate all your hardwork and attention to detail. 2005
Jason and I would like to thank you again for recommending Randy to build our "Dream Home." I can't tell you again, how pleased we are with our new home. After months of frustration trying to find the right builder, your recommendation was just what we were looking for. From start to finish, you were there for us to handle the paperwork and communication between all of us. Not only was our home completed 3 weeks ahead of schedule, our costs even came in lower than expected. What a joy it was working with you. I want to thank you also for the CD you gave us of our home being built from start to finish. My family really enjoyed watching the process. I will definetly refer you and your builder to all my friends who are looking to build a home. Best regards, 2006
Frank and I would like to thank you for your attention to details when marketing our home. Because the zoning had changed to commercial business, your approach to the value was unexpected. You not only chose to market it as a home but also for a potential business. We are very pleased with the results and the price that was obtained. We'd like to extend our thanks in finding our new home also. It's just what we've dreamed of. Your friends, Frank and Claudette 2005
Marianne, Tammy and I are very please with the value you presented to us when you listed and sold our home. You showed us in black and white what current homes within our area were sold for without inflating the value just to get our business. Being first time sellers, we were nervouse when the offers started coming in. You were so patient with us, explaining the various ways to respond to the multiple offers. We are very pleased with the end results and your negotiations regarding our home sale. 2006
First off, thanks for being so patient with me through my lengthy process in finding my home. Even though it took me almost 3 months to make a decision, you were so understanding. Going that extra mile to meet with me at different locations with paperwork to sign during the contract negotiations really showed me that service is one of your priorities. I won't forget you in the future when it comes time to sell my home. Thank you again for all your hard work, 2005
Marianne did an excellent job selling our house, she explained to us every step of the process that we could understand and it made the whole experience great. Our house sold the 1st day when it went on the market to the 1st person I believe it was due to all the work that Marianne did. If you want your house to sell fast for the best price I would let Marianne do it for you!!! 2016
Dear Prospective Home Buyer. I am so very impressed with Marianne Robinson. When I first met her, l lived half a continent away. The entire home purchase was done remotely, with Marianne doing all of the local work of going to home inspections, septic and water inspections, and so forth. Not only is Marianne the most on the ball real estate broker that I have ever worked with, but she is/was funny and made me laugh all the way through the purchase process. Her amazing humor was so helpful because the process of buying the home (from out of state) was stressful for me.
Guess what? When it came time for me to drive my UHaul across the country, she and her husband let me stay at their home. They made me a lovely dinner, and then drove an hour and a half to my new home and they both helped me unload my UHaul. They did this twice, as I needed two trucks to move across the country.
Marianne was extremely helpful in dealing with the Mortgage Company and ironing out endless details. She was also helpful in the negotiation process with the Bank, as the property that I bought was Bank owned. She is a top notch negotiator!!! She knows her real estate prices too!!!
Marianne even bought me an insurance policy for the house, for a full year. When it came time for closing, she drove me two hours to the closing, and even bought me breakfast before the closing.
Marianne is also keenly knowledgeable about building and construction, and because of this, she has answered many important questions that I had about my new home. She is not only the best real estate broker I have ever dealt with, but has become a trusted friend. Thanks Marianne, 2014
I would recommend Marianne to anyone dealing with any kind of real estate transaction. She is knowledgeable, prompt and thorough. She can lead you through your home purchase or sale with a minimum of stress. She does the hard part. 2016
Marianne is a fantastic real estate agent and we have had a wonderful experience with her. We contacted Marianne as out of town buyers looking to relocate and she made the entire process as smooth and pleasant as possible. She was always courteous, friendly, helpful, and prompt. She always answered my phone calls right away and was happy to preview properties when I couldn’t be there. Moving from several states away was a daunting task and I cannot say enough about Marianne and how smooth she helped things to go. From coordinating paperwork, changing locks, contacting cleaning crews, and getting carpet stretched all before we rolled into town to mowing my lawn after we moved because the mower was left in Washington. After we moved she continued to give me advice on the sale of our home in Washington and helped get me names of contractors to fix things in our new home. I would highly recommend Marianne as your realtor. If you are looking for a realtor who can get things accomplished you have found the right one. 2012
