About Marie McCall
“My pledge to you is outstanding service. My reputation equals integrity
at its highest level. My goal is to simplify the real estate process and
educate clients so they can make informed, successful decisions.”
Marie McCall is passionate about real estate! She prides herself on being a supportive, caring advocate with extensive experience in negotiation. A full-time REALTOR® since 1995, Marie’s husband, Dave originally encouraged her to obtain her license because of her natural love of people and strong desire to help others. He had firsthand knowledge of her keen listening skills and ability to creatively problem solve. Marie also utilized her previous ten years of client service experience with a major automotive manufacturer to understand the critical importance of responsiveness and follow-through.
Marie recently discovered firsthand what it means to relocate when her family packed their bags and sold their home of 27 years. Selling is so much more than obtaining a buyer, and relocating adds layers of detail and consideration to a move. She quickly realized the important role she plays in helping her clients manage the often daunting real estate process, explaining every step along the way, as well as keeping expectations and emotions balanced.
