Clients are saying:
"Marina helped my Fiancé and I purchase our condo in 2016. When it came time to sell our condo and move to a single family home we knew exactly who to contact. Marina showed us multiple homes in the suburbs before we found our dream home. Marina was knowledgeable and informative throughout the entire process; we could not ask for a better agent and will continue to use her services in the future. At the same time we were looking for a home in the suburbs Marina also listed and sold our current condo in 2 weeks after it was listed. This was amazing for the given market in the West Loop. Anyone looking for a knowledgeable, trusting and genuine relator should highly consider using Marina Burman!"
