 Dear Marilyn,

 I have been living in my new condo for a little over a year now. I am finding it very comfortable, and I want to thank you for the excellent job you did in helping me with its purchase.

 First, I appreciate how gentle and thoughtful you were in learning about all my special wants and needs. I felt you listened to me very well. Also you came up with additional questions for me, of which did not occur to me, but which turned out to be important in deciding what I wanted in a new home.

After understanding my desires and financial abilities, you were quick to search the market. As it turned out this was quite valuable to me because of my new condo being a short sale which might have quickly disappeared. And the bottom line about my successful purchase was that you and your expertise on short sales established the right price and proposal to make the deal complete.

 During the time I was looking to buy a home, I was also very busy with other parts of my life, and so I very much appreciate how you were taking care of every aspect of my purchase, which included filing all sorts of forms, and communicating with other professionals such as the title company and the seller's realtor. All the while, you also kept me abreast of the process. Your service was great!

 Marilyn, your work as a realtor made my home purchase a pleasure and a success. I would highly recommend you to anyone needing a clever, hard working, and knowledgeable real estate agent.

Thank you
