- About Marilyn
Marilyn is extremely professional, caring and honest. She not only helped us buy our dream home in Kirkland, but also helped put our old home on rent. Throughout the process, we heavily leaned on her for guidance. She always went out of her way to address our concerns, help us understand the process, and make everything really smooth. She was efficient and reliable - and we had a wonderful experience overall. We'd wholeheartedly recommend her to our friends and family.

Thank you for being simply "the best" professional I could have hoped to work with to sell my home. From start to finish, your constant support, hard work, and good cheer alleviated the stress and strain of selling my home.
I especially appreciated all your knowledge and experience and the fact that you assessed the value of my home accurately. Even when the offers were slow and low, you never suggested that I lower the price. Instead, you continued to hold open houses and to aggressively sell my home for the price that you believed in. Your efforts paid off and the home sold.
Thank you also for going the extra mile to help me with miscellaneous repairs and improvements. You always knew exactly what needed to be done and you never hesitated to roll up your sleeves and get things accomplished.
I have told all my friends how blessed I feel to have you as my realtor.
Wishing you all the best,
Eleanor Orth Kirkland, WA
We have used Marilyn Carroll to both buy and sell our homes. She is extremely knowledgeable, patient and friendly on both sides of the process. She goes the extra mile to make sure that everything goes quickly and smoothly. Marilyn is a must use! Thank you for all you do!

I worked with Marilyn in the spring of 2015. Due to her strategy and pricing, I had multiple competing offers within 24 hours. She also did all sorts of projects to help me with the house while I was moving. Her husband did touch up paint, installed a new mirror and light fixture. I was so impressed. She is smart, ethical and a pleasure to work with. I HIGHLY recommend Marilyn Carroll!
Working with Marilyn Carroll as both our purchase and sale agent was a great experience. She is a Kirkland Real Estate expert and her experience, integrity and enthusiasm are very obvious. Marilyn took the time to really understand what our family was looking for in a new home and together we found the perfect property our first trip out. With her help we were able to move in to our new house 30 days after our offer was accepted. In an extremely competitive market she made our home purchase/sale smooth and stress-free. We found her to be honest and knowledgeable about what we should expect in terms of timelines, pricing, etc. and she is a very skilled negotiator. Marilyn has an extensive network of professionals she recommends for home repairs and inspections. Her expertise in the market conditions, staging, curb appeal and pricing generated large number showings at the house we were selling in early December. We closed that sale within 30 days. My husband and I truly feel Marilyn cares about our family. It is a great feeling to have an agent that not only gives top quality service but is someone you can regard as a friend and who treats your transaction as if she was working with family. We highly recommend Marilyn Carroll for all real estate needs.

Thank you very much for making our experience of selling our townhouse a less stressful, and more pleasant one. Friday's news of all closing proceedings completed and funds wire-transferred was great news! We appreciated your patience, diligence, dedication and understanding though out the process.
You provided a lot of guidance and help as we tried to sell our townhouse after moving to the Bay Area. Being long-distance homeowners was not easy and would have been far more difficult if it weren’t for you keeping an eye on our place, helping us through all the repairs, inspections, logistics of staging and de-staging, and as if all of that wasn't enough, even helping us with renting it the prior year. Your resourcefulness helped us with many decisions that could not have been possible without personally being in Kirkland.
Last but not the least, your professionalism, wonderful disposition, and attention to detail are most appreciated. Rest assured if anyone is looking for a place in Kirkland we know who to send them to.

Marilyn is what I wish all real estate agents could be. Having worked with a number of agents, I recognize her service, professionalism, generosity and spirit to be quite simply -- and by a wide margin -- superior. Her selling style reflects a loyalty to my best interests that one expects, but rarely gets. It is her relaxed, folksy and attentive attitude that made me feel as if I were her only concern. Her desire to go the extra mile is evident, be it searching for obscure information, suggesting best playbook strategy regarding the other agent's client, or assisting with post-closing concerns. She's in it all the way -- and happy to be. In short, it's clearly her calling.
Knowledge and experience combine to be what some people would call "instinct" for Marilyn. She knows the market. Marilyn helped us through all the tough decisions in difficult market to achieve the goal of "sold" I can wholeheartedly recommend her to you!

"As a retired Realtor I know what exceptional service is when I see it! Marilyn's knowledge, experience, follow through and willingness to go the extra mile were unparalleled. We have already referred neighbors and friends to Marilyn and will continue to do so."
John and Sue Dodge
"Thank you for all your assistance and professionalism. We enjoyed working with you and appreciated everything you did. We will continue to recommend you to our friends and family"
Pattie and Allen Auvil
"When working with Marilyn it always felt like we were looking at homes with a friend and not with a salesperson. She was clearly interested in helping us find a house that we really liked, not just a house that we would buy ... I would highly recommend Marilyn as a real estate agent for anyone looking to buy or sell a home."
I want to take a moment and let you know how much I appreciated your partnership through the sale of my home. When I made the decision to sell, you were the 1st realtor that came to my mind. Over the past several years I have noticed that you have a deep level of commitment, whether to your kids, your husband or your job. You seemed to be able to focus clearly on the subject at hand, not getting distracted with all the other things going on. You clearly were active in your job... every time I looked at a for sale sign they seemed to have your name on them. I am very happy I was smart enough to hire you to sell my home. Let me bullet point my experiences with you:
Very professional - always on time - always available - always prepared
Well informed - knew the market at a detail level - always current
Strong Point of View- when faced with multiple options / situations gave clear guidance that allowed me to make informed decisions
Connected - very tuned in - not distracted focused in the moment
Supportive - open and able to make suggestions on sale issues on a separate transaction
Marilyn, when I am in the market again, there is no question you will be the first person I call!
"Marilyn is a high energy professional who stayed on top of our listings and the changes in the real estate market in our area. Her follow up with agents was timely and we were always kept informed through out the listing period. Most importantly, we were extremely satisfied with the way Marilyn represented us through the closing of the property."

"Thanks for all the extras you did to make our move go smoothly."
"I really appreciate how you took us to see two other houses after we found our dream home, just to make sure we really found what we wanted. Your patience and flexibility were boundless. What can I say, you went above and beyond our expectations! We're very thankful for all your hard work!"
