Testimonials



"When we first met her, Marla impressed us as professional, knowledgeable, responsive, pleasant, dedicated. As we worked with her, we found those initial impressions were totally correct. Our buying experience was excellent because of her."



"Marla is the VERY best! She was professional, knowledgeable, reliable, & kind. Marla made the process of purchasing a new condo & renting out another very smooth - which was a difficult task for her as she worked with us & our infant & toddler. We are so happy to have met & worked with her."



"To prospective buyers and sellers, don't waste your time interviewing other brokers just hire Marla Hori and your life will take a positive turn. She is smart, positive and always a page if not a chapter ahead. She offers great advice - and listen to her. We are going to miss talking to her every day but I am sure we will remain friends because she is the kind of person you want in your life. We've had a wonderful experience."



"Marla was an absolute dream to work with. She was an attentive, detailed and efficient professional and our experience with her was fantastic!"



"Marla was as supportive as any broker I have ever worked with. She was always one step ahead of me to ensure that both my buy and my sell were executed in a timely and efficient manner."



"We were truly grateful to have Marla on our "team". Her energy, dedication and guidance achieved our ambitious goal to both sell our existing condo and find our new home within a short time period. Marla took time to get to know us, develop winning strategies, and always considered our best interests. Marla's resources helped us assemble an excellent team of professionals, and she patiently guided us through every step. Her commitment kept our "sell" listing visible, and we sold while competitive units remained unsold in our building. Because of Marla, we met all our goals -- she IS among THE BEST in the business!"



"Marla was not only charming, kind, concerned and very reliable, but, also, a very hard worker and wonderful real estate agent."



"Marla is terrific. She worked with us on prepping our place for sale. Great advice on how to un-clutter our condo. She advised us on buying sheers for windows to soften the view. She helped us understand the current market and what our sale price needed to be. When we got a buyer, Marla kept on the attorneys during their review period to be sure there were no problems. Then she kept us in the loop on the status of condos we were thinking of buying. Once we had our offer accepted, she helped us gain access to do measurements and to be reminded of the layout beyond what the floor plan showed. Every step of the way, Marla kept us informed, sometimes several times per day when needed! She truly cared about us and our needs and desires, and worked unstoppingly to make sure we got what we needed! We felt as if we had a true ally in Marla. She was fair and honest, and that combination, plus all the above qualities, make her unbeatable in our book! Not only would we recommend Marla to friends, neighbors, casual acquaintances, BUT we have already done so! Without reservation! And we shall continue to do so! We are extremely happy with our broker and with @Properties!"



"Marla was the consummate professional during our condo sales process. We engaged with her several months before we listed the property and she presented us with up-to-date, current and realistic market data to help us decided whether to list and if so, at what price. She was realistic about the market but never negative. She was always sensitive to us and our needs while moving the sale forward. I especially felt she operated with transparency and integrity during the time we worked together. In addition, the @Properties approach is so relevant for today's market. The online and printed materials were top notch. We sold our unit in three days after just one showing at what appears to be the current market value! Amazing to us in this real estate climate. Thanks, Marla, for helping us in a tough real estate market."



"Attention to detail, frequent updates, and consistent professionalism are all qualities I enjoyed while working with Marla."



"Marla was not only charming, kind, concerned and very reliable, but, also, a very hard worker and wonderful real estate agent."



"Marla Hori was my agent and her professionalism and knowledge of the market were evident from my first encounter with her. She provided on target advice throughout my time with her. I feel she went the extra mile with me on numerous occasions. As a first time home buyer I feel blessed to have had Marla on my side in the home buying process. I would highly recommend Marla as a buyers real estate agent."



"I cant thank you enough for all that you did in making this happen. I knew from the beginning it was going to be difficult to sell the condo but you stepped up and did all within your power (and then some) to see it through to the end. I dont think a lot of realtors would have gone the extra mile as you did. You were always encouraging; able to see the light at the end of the tunnel to each challenge that popped up. You have the patience of Job and the determination of a pit bull. Mom was very lucky to have you on her side (me too)."



"Marla was amazing during the entire process. She explained things in detail and she is not that typical pushy sales person that I have encountered so many times in real estate. She was honest, down to earth and just very easy to work with. I would use her again in a heartbeat."



"Marla's exemplary professionalism, courtesy, and personal attention every step of what was a long and arduous journey from listing to sale were deeply appreciated, and @ Properties is fortunate to have her on their team."



"I have to say personally, that you were probably one of the most prepared and professional agents I have come into contact with in a long while you are definitely doing a great job for your clients!"



"Because of Marla Hori's skills and patience, I had a wonderful experience buying my new condo. Marla is knowledgeable about the various real estate markets and is extremely patient and persistent. The search phase lasted a long time because of my circumstances, yet Marla stuck with me and methodically exhausted all my options, especially as my needs and desires changed. Her attention to detail and her organizational skills were extraordinary. She answered all of my questions quickly and completely. My transaction closed because of Marlas unwavering dedication to me, as well as her keen awareness of my requirements and needs.She is an excellent real estate agent because she clearly loves her job and she is devoted to her clients. I, unequivocally and without reservation, recommend Marla Hori to my friends and family. After this wonderful experience, I cannot imagine working with any other real estate agent."



"We really can't thank you enough for the expertise you brought to our search for a home to suit our new life together. Your wise counsel -- about neighborhoods, about buildings, square footage, and floor plans (and OMG where is the piano going to go), about the financial health of the condo associations, and about the "feel" of the places we looked at -- made looking for a home less stressful than it could have been. In fact, with you it was really a joy. With your intelligence, knowledge, and advice we came to the right decision with confidence--no buyer's remorse for us!! It was a privilege to work with you."



"I am an out of town client who originally grew up in Chicago. I was looking for a condo downtown and knew the area well but was not sure of what properties to begin my search. Marla was not only well versed on all the properties and areas but was terrific at locating a designer, attorney and broker. She was always readily available and worked around my schedule since my time in Chicago was so limited. I had several problems with the developer at my condo and Marla fought hard for me not only to correct all the issues but also to make sure I didn't get cheated in the process. She negotiated an out of this world deal for me. She was just fabulous!"



"Marla didn't feel like just my agent, she felt like my advocate. She put more thought and consideration into my individual needs than I have ever had in an agent. She is really a one-of-a-kind and I wouldn't choose anyone else!"



"Let there be singing and dancing in the streets! Thank you, Marla! You give Realtors a good name."



"Marla's outstanding attention to details and implementation of feedback resulted in a painless and smooth transaction process. She offered solid marketing suggestions and was proactive in getting my condo on the market and sold in a timely manner -- consistently time-driven and efficient in her actions. My being out of town required quite the coordination of efforts and she demonstrated proficiency with a positive attitude. This is a REALTOR you can put your trust in!"



"I can see the heart you put into your work and selflessness in the way you treat your clients. It was evident at closing the sort of relationships that you build with your clients as they see you're not just their Realtor, but a trusted ally and friend. I look forward to working with you again in the near future."



"Marla was a truly devoted and energetic agent. She was extremely knowledgeable and helped me understand the process. At the closing she advised the attorney of some issues that were very important. I was so happy and fortunate to have Marla who seemed to do everything possible to help me with the process and ultimately to sell the property. She went out of her way to be helpful in every way. (Cathleen)"



"Marla, you are amazing!!! You've done so much above and beyond what anyone could expect of an agent. Thank you is not enough but I don't know of another word so, thanks."



"As a buyer, I was thrilled by the thoroughness of the service Marla provided to my family. From identifying properties to guiding us through inspections, mortgage applications and closing, every step was explained and supported by her knowledge and experience. The process of buying a condo was smooth and easy thanks to Marla."



"Knowdedgeable and professional with a very human touch!"



"I just can't thank you ENOUGH for ALL you have done to help us find a home -- and one we are very happy with -- the more I think about it, the more I just know it's where we're supposed to be. S0 -- thank you, thank you, thank you -- you're amazing."



"Seriously, you made this painless, and we deeply appreciate your professionalism and caring. Your follow-through is great, and I'm sure this would not have gone as well with other realtors."



"Marla was very informed about the current market and was able to assist us in our search for a condo. her professionalism and experience outshines many in her field. She is very efficient, reliable and trustworthy. i highly recommend her to my friends and family."



"I want to thank you for being so helpful. We have been very lucky, but you have worked hard. You are very good at what you do! Happy New Year and again, thanks! (Property sold in just 35 days)"



"I can't say thank you enough, there is no other way to describe you -- you are the best!"



"I can't thank you enough for the support you have given us. You are a true professional and very good at what you do. We were really lucky when we found you!"



"I want to thank you for helping us find such an amazing condo. Your expertise and resources were invaluable, of course, but your genuine concern for us made the experience truly fabulous. You made the process approachable from start to finish."



"As a first-time home buyer, Marla took the anxiety out of the entire process. In addition to sending listings to me based on my wish list, she provided information on the home-buying process, financing, even decorating tips! Her background in school administration was a definite plus in her role as a Realtor. My education on home-buying from Marla was invaluable."
