Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $225K in Munster, IN.
Marilyn is the most patient and understanding agent. She helped us to buy our first home, we were stressed a little bit but she was always ready to help. It took us about 3 month to buy a house but she understood exactly what we want and never wasted our time. I guess we will call Marilyn Tolhuizen when ever we decide to purchase our next house.

Thank you Eric. It was a pleasure to help you find your home. Yours is one of my all time favorite homes. Hope you fill it up.
Bought a Condo home in 2013 for approximately $125K in Munster, IN.
I contact Marilyn simply because i saw a home i was interested in purchasing and her number was listed on the site. Looking back, i feel i really lucked out that i was able to find and work with her. Along with the home i was interested in, she showed a number of other places that fit the description i gave her and had all the features i was looking for in my first home. I ended up purchasing one of the homes she suggested that i may like.
Marilyn worked around my schedule for viewing homes and didnt hesistate to do anything she could to make my decision in choosing a home easier. She was available by phone any time i needed her, and was very helpful with any questions i had. She helped me from begining to end, from the time we walked through the first place to the time i actually closed on my new home. She explained parts of the mortgage process that i didnt understand and helped me to make good decisions throughout the process.
Marilyn is wonderful at what she does. She is a caring person and really tries to help you find what you are looking for. I've dealt with other realitors in the past and always felt they were looking out for their own pocketbooks before the needs of their buyers. This was in no way the vibe I got from her. Her primary concern seemed to be to help me find exactly what i was looking for. I will use Marilyn again for all future purchases, as I am an owner of several rental properties and am always looking for more.
Marilyn was excellent. She was very accessible and extremely responsive for showings. She gave a practical perspective when asked, but never pressured me to buy. I probably wouldn't have gotten the house I did without her.
Bought a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $350K in Munster, IN.
Marilyn was a great agent. She was not too pushy, always made time for our last-minute requests to see a property and gave useful and sound advice when it came to dealing with the REO property we were interested in. Being new to the real estate market, she explained everything in detail and told us what to expect. She also has numerous contacts/connections for lenders, home inspection, appliance retailers, etc. I'd highly recommend Marilyn Tolhuizen.

Irshad and Urjoomund -thank you for the lovely review. I had such a good time meeting your family and helping you find your home. So glad you are settled in and happy.
Marilyn is a true Pro in every sense of the word. She has the know-how, experience (and patience) to deliver on her promises. Marilyn spent as much time/effort as was needed in order to put us into our new home and we couldn't be happier. After all the business was taken care of and we moved in, Marilyn followed up with us as we were acclimating to our new neighborhood and pointed us in the right direction numerous times. Thank you for all your help Marilyn, you made the experience as easy and stress free as possible. You're the best! Chris & Natalie

Chris and Natalie-It was a real pleasure to help you find and buy your home.
Bought a Single Family home in 2010 in Crown Point, IN.
Marilyn was a great agent to work with. I was a first time homebuyer and was actually quite nervous about the purchase. Marilyn was there for me from the start, showing me many great properties while working around my busy work schedule. We looked at dozens of properties until Marilyn had sent me an REO home that I fell in love with right away. We made an appointment that day and put in an offer later that afternoon which was accepted. Marilyn worked with the seller and my lender to make the process very painless. She gave me a list of things to take care of before the closing and was there every step of the way to answer any of my questions.
I would definitely recommend Marilyn to any homebuyer. She is very knowledgeable, professional, friendly, courteous, conscientious of deadlines, and is able to work around your schedule. I've been living in the residence since October of 2010 and couldn't be happier. Thank you once again Marilyn.

Thank you Matt-it was a great pleasure to work with you to find your home. I can't wait until you are ready to find your next one. Thank you for taking the time to write this review. I really appreciate it.
Marilyn was a great Real Estate Agent. We began looking in 2009 and put offers in on 5 different houses of the course of a year. My wife was then laid off so we stopped looking. Once my wife found another position we moved to Illinois and contacted agent their. We use three different agents while in Illinois and didn't like any of them compared to Marilyn. Once we decided to look in Indiana we contacted Marilyn and again she was gret and started showing us houses right away.
We found one, put an offer on it and it was accepted! She was great as we went through the process and all the way through closing. I would highly reccomend Marilyn for anyone looking for a house.
