Hello, I am Marjie Van Der Laan, happy and thankful to be of one the very few fourth generation real estate brokers in the world. My family's involvement in real estate dates back to 1935, so I guess real estate is in my genes!  After working in real estate for two years in Southern California, I moved to the Pacific Northwest, and I love it here!

You can count on me to anticipate things and be proactive to represent your best interests. I guide you through the process of buying and selling to make it a streamlined process that is low stress, uncomplicated and even fun.


My real estate partner and husband, D. Michael Zaviska, is fluent in English, German and Czech languages. He has a background of working through difficult situations in international business and has an excellent track record in finding win-wins for clients and negotiating positive outcomes. 

SELLERS: We offer top-level full-service listing services with competitive pricing in the Portland Metro Area and Southwest Washington. We use the most cutting-edge virtual tour camera system available on the market which scans the interior of your home and creates a 3D dimensionally-accurate model of your home's interior and floor plan.  This allows interested buyers to "virtually" walk through your home and look around in all directions. 
We also take pictures with our arsenal of DSLR cameras, using various lenses and take 150-200 pictures per home.  In addition to the 3D virtual tour, we also include an HD video slide show to display many pictures for sellers' online presence. 

We have a proven marketing plan to get your home sold for the highest price in the shortest period of time.  We give the best to you with unlimited high-quality full-color flyers until your home is sold.  We syndicate your listing out to over 90 websites, plus the over one thousand others, which receive IDX feeds, ensuring you have the best and most comprehensive online presence.  While marketing that consistently outperforms the competition and offering competitive pricing, we demonstrate that are truly "Committed to Your Success!"

BUYERS:  We truly enjoy helping buyers work toward their goals and are attentive listeners. We use our in-depth experience, negotiating skills and knowledge about current market conditions to benefit our clients.

I wrote, "A Buyer's Guide to Short Sales and Bank Owned Homes," a 17-page report, which I give to all of our clients, to help them navigate through buying these types of distressed property sales.

We have a rating system to make sure you are buying the right home for you, not just a house you will be dissatisfied with in 1 to 5 years.  97% of our clients do not move because we help them find the right home, and accordingly, we gratefully receive referrals from our past clients.  We want you to be pleased with your home.


Let's get together and talk about your home selling and/or buying plans.  Call/text me on my cell phone (503-610-0650) or send me an e-mail (marjie.nwrt@gmail.com) to set-up a time to talk.  I look forward to meeting you!

Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $225K in Linwood, Milwaukie, OR.

Hi, Marjie! Thank you for finding us the perfect home! It's coming up on 2 years and I'm still in love withe the place. It's the biggest lot on the street and I'm enjoying making it my own. Thank you for being the one to bring me here. You are frequently in our thoughts and praises! Also, the knives are still very sharp. Thank you for the housewarming gift.  More Less

Bought a Single Family home in 2015 in Multnomah, Portland, OR.

I met Marjie through a relative who used Marjie's services (and was very happy). I wanted to refinance my house and needed a professional opinion on what repairs to make for the biggest return. Marjie is extremely knowledgeable. We went through the whole house and discussed what needed to be done and strategies on how to do it. She even recommended some businesses she has used to do the work. Then, she summarized it all in a written report. I'm really impressed with the quality of her work. Also, she is just a nice person. I truly enjoyed working with her and will do it again if the opportunity presents itself.  More Less

Hanah, thank you so much! Thank you for inviting me into your home... if you decide to do the kitchen, I know who to call. It was great to see your little one again and your killer backyard.
