"Our St. Paul Realtor found Marie when she was calling to alert other area Realtors about the sale of my mother's home. Our realtor eventually changed brokers and we stayed with Marie as she knew the area and worked hard to bring people through the house--which was a first. We had previously listed the house with a realtor from Elbow Lake and one from Alexandria. We had NO showings at all. Marie made sure area realtors knew of the property, looked at it themselves and remembered it when they had buyers." - Kathryn Watkins, St. Paul
"I will recommend Marie shores to any of my friends or family. She took a very serious interest in what my concerns were in selling my property and what we wanted and needed to get us into another property. She went above and beyond to market our property to different kinds of markets. She did not try to push us into anything we could not afford or where we did not want to be located to. Marie became a friend." - Kelly Smith, Evansville, MN
