After 47 years in my Pinecrest residence,
I was ready to sell and downsize, but the prospect seemed daunting. I knew
little about the process of buying and selling real estate. It was my good
fortune to make the acquaintance of Marie Story who greatly facilitated this
potentially trying undertaking. Her knowledge and professionalism, as well
as her contacts in the real estate field (both legal and logistical) paved
the way for a smooth transition. That transition now finds me happily
situated in my new home which so much better fits the contours of my
senior citizen existence.
We are proud owners of our first home as newlyweds solely
because of Marie. When finding our home, Marie, already knowing the
listing agent, was able to schedule us as the first family to look at the
house. We fell in love with the house and Marie had a contract completed
and in the hands of the listing agent within an hour. The sellers
accepted our offer and the closing was completed swiftly and without
interruptions. Her experience and connections as a realtor allowed us to
search, find, and close on a house within 2 months. We love our home and
hope to stay in it for many years… but if a move is necessary, Marie is only
number we will be calling.

Marie is extremely thorough, she explained every single step
involved in selling my house. She was a HUGE help in determining my list
price; she presented me with the selling price of recently sold homes in my area
and the homes I was competing with. Her marketing and the showing of my
house were all top notch, very professional. Marie was very helpful in
negotiating the terms and sale price of my house. In just a few days I
had my house under contract and sold within 60 days! I highly recommend
hiring Marie Story as your real estate agent.
to take this opportunity to thank you for a job well done! Once I made the difficult decision that it
was time to sell my home and move, I knew I needed to find a realtor. I remembered a mailer I got from you that
impressed me – especially that you specialized and restricted your practice to
Pinecrest and as a seller’s agent. So, I
called you and we scheduled an appointment.
arrived promptly for our appointment, it was obvious that you had already done
a lot of research on my property and you were well prepared. You started with a
well- organized, impressive, professional presentation and then went into the
details of how you would market my home.
I remember you told me to “start packing” and I thought you were joking,
but I quickly realized it was no joke and I’m happy I did start the process.
My home was under contract at full asking
price before I knew it – amazing to me!
You were very perceptive and showed great insight into my needs. You also quickly realized I was a “worrier”
so you “held my hand” and reassured me through the entire process. The advice you gave me was right-on and the
service you provided me was outstanding, including some clauses in the sales
contract that I thought were creative and surely in my best interest. You attended to every little detail and went
well beyond your responsibilities as a seller’s agent to ensure the transaction
went efficiently and smoothly from our first meeting right through the flawless
thank you enough for excellent service you provided me and I would not hesitate
a split second to recommend you to any prospective client. Thank you.

We'd like to thank you for your professional manner in handling the sale of our home. You took us from the estimation of the value through the closing with knowledge and much hand-holding. We appreciate your efforts on our behalf.
Jan and Carol Hussey
We want to sincerely thank you for helping us list and sell our home in less than 1 week! Your professionalism, your knowledge of the market and the care you took in giving our home the best exposure exceeded our expectations. It was difficult for us to move on from the home where we raised our children; but you certainly facilitated every step of the way!
We wish you the best.

Four years ago, when we started to formulate our timeline for relocating out of Pinecrest, we interviewed multiple Realtors and narrowed our choice to one, MARIE STORY, as the person to handle our Pinecrest sale. With no pressure involved, we kept in touch over those 4 years, until we gave Marie the call "it is time." Her integrity is impeccable and her talent to cross every "t" and dot every "i" was a perfect fit for our experience in selling our home of 26 years. The crowning touch was when our real estate attorney labeled her work as A+. Thank you, Marie, for our A+ Story in real estate sale.
Dr. Richard and Janet Forster
We are so grateful to you, thanks for all your help in selling our home. We are definitely going to keep you in mind for any future real estate assistance.
God bless you,

Thank you for being the consummate realtor. Not only did you sell my house in Pinecrest the first week and for asking price, but you also found a rental condo for me in Coral Gables. During the process you were available by phone for my many questions and in person for all showings. I consider you a friend and look forward to seeing you soon.

|We went to sell our house after living in it for 28 years. We picked a Realtor who knew her business (not only the area of town, but how to price a house for a fast sale). Marie was always accessible by phone. She always answered each call herself so you didn't have to go through anyone else. She made the sale of our house easy. If we needed something done, since we were out of state part of the time, she did it. We truly valued her knowledge, caring and friendship.|

|I actually had two realtors during the buying process. Of the two, Marie was the more professional and the more effective. The odd thing is that Marie was working outside her normal real estate area for me. When I get ready to sell, Marie's is the first number I'll call.|
| Dear Marie-|
Words really cannot express how lucky we are to have found you. We thought that buying a home long distance was going to be a nightmare.
You made the entire process comfortable, seamless, and worry-free every step of the way. You are the consummate professional and we always could rely on your advice in our decision making. Given our circumstances in which Gretchen could not view the homes prior to the move, we trusted that you had our best interests at heart...and it definitely paid off. We can't thank you enough, and offer the highest recommendation to others looking for homes in our area.
All our best-

Your are amazing! Thank you. May God continue to bless you.

|Marie, I want to thank you for everything you have done for me. Without you I never would have found such a great place. When I have the place finished I will invite you over for a home cooked meal. |
You took us by the hand and educated and guided through the most treacherous months of our lives, and yet the whole time we felt as though you had our back. We felt like such neophytes and you were so so patient. You were gentle and let us explore the possibilities and yet when you saw we might be taking the wrong path you would coax us back to where we should be going.You were absolutely wonderful and tireless in helping us in our quest to find the perfect home, working extra long hours. Not mention that we are all the way from California! You helped us from a distance as well and took care of details that most realtors would never undertake. We could never ever, ever thank you enough for all your kindnesses and attentions.
YOU ARE THE BEST PINECREST HAS TO OFFER.
Professor and Mrs. Manuel Gomez
Thanks so much for all you did to help us both sell and find a new home. We're still living out of boxes, but stop in and say hello.
Bill and Gill Kelley
I want to write to you to say that it was a privilege for Morris and me to have been able to work with a great Broker Associate like you. As soon as I met you I knew you were the person to sell our house. I have never seen anyone take such a personal interest in not only our family but take care of our house while it was on the market. You went over and above board in your attention to details. You always kept us well informed of the market prices and what we should expect. Your untiring efforts, sincerity, great personality and constant commitment were always seen by us.
Morris and I hold you very dear to our hearts. Your company is very fortunate to have you as a member of their team. Again we are very grateful to you for your determination and hard work in this a very difficult housing market.
Dr. and Mrs. Morris Beck
Julia and I cannot begin to tell you how much we have appreciated your help and guidance through the selling-moving process.Notwithstanding the natural stress that such a situation causes, we have both been amazed at how painless you have made it for us--from selling our much loved home so quickly to answering completely and fully our every question. We knew you were the right person to sell our home when we met you, and every encounter has served only to reinforce that impression. Thank you for all your hard work and diligence.
Julia and Danny Webb
Thank you so much for being such a wonderful human being. I met you 2 months ago and you became family. I had my house listed with another Realtor for 6 months and it didn't sell. After listing with you, in 9 days we had a contract and within 45 days we closed. You helped me in so many ways, you became my right hand.
Joe, Olga, Demi, Devin, Joey and Shelby Rodriguez
| Marie, this note is to thank you for the great job you did in helping us sell our house. You were always a pleasure, easy to speak with, and always having time for our questions. Not only are you a hard worker, but you are a credit to your profession. |
Frank and Christina Abrams
I write this from the heart. I don't know what I would have done without you. I needed help and you were there for me every step of the way - everything from the right price for the house, getting the house ready, and all the way through to closing, you even helped me celebrate!
I turned it all over to you and you got the job done. I would highly recommend you.
Mrs. Anne Filer
|We call Marie our "lucky charm"! Within 2 weeks of our listing, our home was sold! We knew from our first meeting that Marie had the perfect combination of professionalism and friendliness that we were looking for in a REALTOR. We immediately felt comfortable with her and knew we could trust her to guide us through this major event in our life. We give her a perfect 10! |
