Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $125K in Scotia, NY.
Marilyn made the whole stressful process of buying a home very enjoyable. She explained things clearly and precisely (sometimes more than once) to make sure I knew what was going on and what things meant. She gave excellent advice and always acted as a professional. She was very flexible with my crazy schedule and helped me find the home of my dreams. My family and I are so thankful for all of her hard work. I highly recommend her to anyone trying to buy or sell a home.

Marilyn is a fantastic agent and all together unbelievable at what she does. She made every aspect of (what can be) a very stressful experience, a pleasant one.
She walked us through the entire process. Marilyn was always willing to provide support and answers anytime, any questions or concerns that we had, Marilyn was only a phone call or email away. She was wonderful to work with.
Marilyn worked very hard for us, she is very knowledgeable about the market and the entire process and all aspects involved. She knew everything and we didn’t have to worry about a thing. She has and an amazing work ethic.
She was always very upfront with everything. She was very patient with me and my children and she understood our needs. She had my family's best interest in mind through the entire process and that gave us such peace of mind.
Words cannot describe how wonderful she made our home buying experience. I would highly recommend Marilyn without hesitation to anyone looking to buy or sell a home.

I happened upon Marilyn by accident, and I am glad that I did. Marilyn was very helpful throughout my buying experience. She spent time to review what I was looking for in a home, and viewed many properties with me. During our visits, she was very knowledgeable about the structure, property, and neighborhoods that we were in. She was very responsive when I reached out to her, and was always able to answer questions for me. Even after my purchase, she offered her help whenever I needed it.
Very helpful and full insight, took a lot of pressure and stress away from us while waiting for our home to sold. She was very helpful with advice as how to prepare the house for sale, and had numerous contacts concerning contractors that were easy to work with and did great work.

Thank goodness for Marilyn. The initial advice she gave us before we listed our house was so helpful. We were able to take the time to make the modifications to the house that allowed us to move it quickly and get our price. She never pushed us to list the house until we were done with the work and ready. Marilyn took one week off while our house was listed and found a person to cover her work so we were supported. But the very best thing was that Marilyn was with us from start to finish - she gave us advice, held an open house, hosted a brokers open house, went back many times when the people wanted to see it again, and helped us out at the last minute when things looked like they might fall through. Our lawyer was very impressed with Marilyn and the professionalism she showed throughout the final weeks before we closed. I would not hesitate to recommend Marilyn - in fact - I already did. Thanks Marilyn, Wonderful job!

We are so glad we turned to Marilyn to help us sell our house. She is very professional and always acts with the best interest of the client in mind. We moved to another state in a rush. She did a lot of work to help get the house in nice shape after we left. She also did a great job negotiating for us. She is honest and experienced, and knows the the local market well. We would recommend her to anyone.

Marilyn looked over our 50+ year old home and made some very specific recommendations on how to make it more sale-able in this market. We followed each one and used her recommended contractors for paint, electric and masonry, etc.
We de-cluttered to her spec's and "poof" our home was SOLD IN NINE DAYS!
We should add, she had 50+ Real Estate agents in for the Brokers Open House and then 20+ couples the following Sunday for a general Open House.
All thru out the process she was knowledgeable and responsive. She will interact with your choice of media: text, email or phone. He husband, Joe, even helped out from time to time when we needed assistance.
Great agent! Nice neighbor too. We will miss her.
Response from Marilyn on 09/14/2012
Yes, nine days and SOLD. These clients followed every suggestion and it truly helped sell their home. As an Accredited Staging Professional it certainly helps me in my business. In this case the clients were tremendously receptive and I am so happy for them.
I look forward to keeping in touch with them and hearing about their new home down South.
Marilyn is very friendly and easy to talk to. She took the time to find what we wanted in a house and helped us find one that had everything we wanted. Because we relocated to the Albany area, we didn't know where anything as. Marilyn was great at pointing things out and went out of her way to help us find our way around. She could point out stores and other local places in each town we looked in, which impressed me. She really cares about her clients.

"WOW",Is all I can say about this woman! We were ready to give up until we found Marilyn Gibbons.Our previous realtor was clueless as to what we wanted and left us wondering if there were any good realtors in the Albany N.Y area.
After a bad experience with our former realtor we were a tad bit skeptical,"UNTIL" we found Marilyn Gibbons by chance.In a matter of days she found us something that was perfect for us!
Marilyn went ABOVE and BEYOND to help us,And this is why we tell EVERYONE about this great woman and everything she did to help us find the perfect place.

Having gone through a sell and looking for homes in Florida and NY since fall of 2010, I'm far from a novice in the home buying and selling process. Let me say that Marilyn Gibbons has restored my faith in that true Real Estate professionals are not extinct, even in this market.
Knowing my budgetary constraints and neighborhoods which I would consider, I worked with Marilyn to develop a list of between 15-20 homes. She carefully reviewed the list several times (I did redact the list more than once), offered insightful input, and then proceeded to schedule and show me over a dozen homes on my list over a 24 hr period spanning a Saturday and Sunday as I was flying in from out of town.
Not only did she masterfully handle the schedule, her knowledge of the neighborhoods I had been looking in was most impressive. She and my contractor seemed to know something about each home and others in the same neighborhood that were for sale, or had gone off the market recently.
Lastly, she has worked tirelessly in concert with the seller's agent, both sets of attorneys, and even gave me sound advice in getting a competitive rate from a local lender.
I couldn't offer her a stronger endorsement and recommendation and would refer her to any friends and family without reservation.
If you've had the pleasure to work with, or plan on working with Marilyn in the future, you will be able to attest to why I for one, am a raving fan or her professionalism and work.
