    Sold a Single Family home in 2019 in Boyne City, MI.
    Marshall was very good at expediting our process and executing with ease. He is very knowledgeable in his field. He felt like a friend and not a salesman.

    Marshall is a high school friend of mine who just happens to be servicing the area that I'm looking in. He knows the area well and offers many insights on the market as well as the shopping and financial preparation processes. Despite our long and close friendship he always maintains a professional demeanor and keeps on-task when "on the clock." He's always a phone call away. Even when he can't talk, he gets back to you through other means of communication quickly. I've seen him with other clients in the office and he is casual and "low-pressure" with everyone, not just his personal friends like myself.

    I will use Marshall in the future, when I am ready to sell & buy a new home. Every time I have sought his advice, he has listened and given excellent direction. He also is a tough negotiator and will protect his clients.

    I've enjoyed working with Marshall. He has helped me and several family members in our home searches. I've always been impressed with his knowledge of the market and homes themselves. He's good at getting to the root of what your goals are and in helping you reach a decision on a purchase where you feel comfortable going forward while getting a great price. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend him to anyone.

    Showed home in 2018 in Saint Ignace, MI.
    It was a pleasure working with Marshall. He was knowledgeable and was very easy to work with. We were looking for a vacation home and not really sure of a specific city or area and Marshall was very accommodating and flexible. Ultimately we ended up looking ain an area which he didn’t cover but he found us a great realtor to work with.
