Sold a Townhouse home in 2014 for approximately $100K in Woodstock, IL.
Marlene was always available, and was a true advocate for me as a seller. We did a short sale on our townhome, and the process took less than 6 months. I was very pleased with all of the support and advice that Marlene provided me. She is a true professional, and I will recommend her to everyone I know that is in need of her services.
Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $125K in Rockford, IL.
Marlene is an outstanding, knowledgeable, and honest agent. She responded to my every call and email immediately. I was selling my home in Chicago and needed to find a new home in a certain location very quickly. Marlene accomplished this in less than 10 days. I was able to close on both houses on the same day. I now have a beautiful home that I love. Marlene worked very hard to accomplish this, and it would not have been possible without her. Marlene was recommended to me, and with confidence, I highly recommend her to anyone. She is a pleasure to work with in a very stressful situation.

Showed home in 2014 in Riverstream, Pistakee Highlands, IL 60050.
Marlene was supportive and informative throughout the buying process. She was quickly able to identify my needs and adjust her recommendations accordingly. She always seemed to accommodate my scheduling needs despite here own busy schedule. I would recommend her.
Marlene was wonderful to work with! She was on top of everything from our very first house showing through closing. She was always available when we needed her, patient with us every step of the way, and so thoughtful in every aspect of her work. She was a joy to deal with. I wish everyone looking for a home could work with such a professional and caring agent. I highly recommend Marlene for any purchasing, selling, or renting needs
Marlene is gem in a field of stones...Tireless in her efforts to find exactly what we were looking for; her integrity and knowledge far exceeded any other realtor we have ever worked with and made the process a great buying experience.
Sold a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $425K in Cary, IL.
We have contracted with Marlene Castagna twice in order to assist us with selling our homes. She first helped us in 2003 and then again most recently in March 2013. Marlene is very professional and maintains a great attention to detail. In both sales we never needed an Open House since both homes sold within 2 weeks of going on the market. We have had great success using Marlene’s expertise and would highly recommend her services.
Marlene is an amazing person to work with. She is always very honest about her opinions and works for the client. She has a lot of experience and gives the best advice. I would definitely recommend to work with her.
Marlene was a fantastic lady to work with. Prompt, willing and had absolutely wonderful communication in this crazy market. It was a joy to work with such a professional and friendly individual, what a true starring representative of the real estate world. She had gone above and beyond any expectations, with an incredibly smooth transaction in the end leaving all parties satisfied and happy. Cannot thank her enough!
Bought a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $150K in West Dundee, IL.
I cannot say enough good things about Marlene! We were first time home buyers and very naive about the process of purchasing a house. Marlene guided us every step of the way! She was always on our side and fighting for what was best for us. Our buying experience was a long one and after two short sale offers that fell through, we were pretty distraught. Marlene was always there to pick us up and get right back out there looking at houses. She was very patient and helped us find the wonderful home we are in now.
Her response time is always prompt. Whether we sent her an email at midnight or 6 AM her response was always within 5 minutes to a half hour. She has many connections (inspectors, brokers, lawyers, etc.) that helps the process run smoothly, which is especially helpful since we did not know where to start with many of those.
I would recommend Marlene to anyone, and have already given her name to many of our friends. She is very knowledgable about her profession and is always on her client's side. We had a great experience with her!
I have worked extensively with this agent over the past year. She provided services for purchasing properties, rehabbing them and reselling & renting them.As a real estate investor, I have come to realize that your success depends on the professionals that you network with. Marlene is my personal 'measuring stick' for the other realtors I deal with. Pick the adjectives or cliches that you would like the ideal agent to have- Marlene's your girl! She's diligent, hardworking, pays attention to details, goes the extra step, gives excellent perspective on different scenarios and absolutely rock-solid dependable!
