"Thank you to all my clients for your kind words!"
"...would definitely rank Marian at the top of our list of realtors."
"We recently purchased a condominium on the Big Island and used Marian as our Realtor. We were very impressed with her careful attention to detail when writing or reviewing contracts or offers. Over the years we have bought and sold several properties on the mainland and would definitely rank Marian at the top of our list of realtors. Marian is very pleasant to work with, and kept us informed of what was going on throughout the negotiations. We are planning on purchasing additional properties on the Big Island and will use Marian again to represent us. I would highly recommend Marian to anyone looking to buy or sell. Many thanks for taking such good care of us."
"Her recommendations and encouragement ..."
“Marian’s real estate experience and energy were a great asset in helping us bridge the gap between online postings and site conditions on the Big Island. After choosing our property online, Marian made an initial site visit with the listing agent. Her recommendations and encouragement were key in our purchase of the property. We have moved into our new home and are very satisfied with Marian’s tireless work throughout the process.
"I met Marian at an open house and was excited when we had a chance to work together. She is not only knowledgeable, but she has an infectious excitement about the transactions she's working on.
Marian went above and beyond what is needed in order to make a difficult transaction with many moving parts work out almost perfectly."
- Jason Wheeler
"My husband and I cannot say enough great things about Marian. We met her at an open house and instantly felt like we had known her our whole lives. We went to this open house on a whim not even planning to buy at the time. Marian made it her personal goal to help us every step of the way when we realized how much we wanted to buy the house! All of her recommendations were exceptional to work with including a great mortgage lender, title company, and even home inspector. Marian was exceptional when it came to making sure we understood everything that was happening during the buying process. Including asking the difficult questions for us to our mortgage lender and title company. We would recommend Marian to anyone buying or selling their home, she took the time to really help us on every level she possibly could!"

"I first met Marian when my husband and I were going to be renting our home in Lafayette while he started a new business in Chicago. As the business started to succeed and it looked like we were going to stay in Chicago, she advised us on our options. She helped navigate the process for us as we made the decision to relocate permanently to Chicago. By the time we had decided to sell our "dream home" we were already living full time in Chicago and were unable to handle the day-to-day issues that arise with the sale of a home. Marian looked after our house. She coordinated everything with us remotely: showings, inspections, negotiations, etc. All documents were electronic and she facilitated the transaction seamlessly. She even met the consignment store people at our home for over an hour, while we were in Chicago, so that we could get an estimate on our furniture. She sold our house without us even in the State of California."

"My boyfriend and I had gone to an open house where Marian Krochka was the realtor. I knew at the moment I met her that when it came time to sell my house I wanted her in my corner. She is very a professional, conscientious, proactive, "has your back" type realtor. We immediately clicked and instantly I knew she was the one I wanted so when I decided to put my house on the market, she was the first call I made. She listened to everything I had to say/wanted regarding the sale and guided me doen the path with each step of selling my home. I would highly recommend Marian to anyone getting ready to sell or buy a home. She'll be there for you every step of the way."

"We worked with Marian Krochka 17 years ago when we moved our parents to Northern California. After our initial meeting with Marian, we came away feeling she had adapted my parents' needs to the current real estate market, always keeping their thoughts in the forefront. She showed us a number of properties and within a couple of weeks, we placed an offer on a great property. Fast forward to October 2013, as surviving children we made the decision to sell my parents' condo. Without hesitation, we knew that Marian would work hard to navigate all the parameters and personal quirks to help us find the right buyers. Marian was extremely responsive and again, was there from beginning to end to ensure every part of the transition went smoothly. Marian communicated with all parties, in our case my brother & me as the sellers. Marian is very trustworthy, hard-working & caring...she's a true professional."
- Cindy Young
"Your years of experience really showed in your professionalism, patience and understanding, in dealing with somewhat of a picky client, me, (who partly wasn't sure what he wanted). You were a great guide and kept an excellent attitude throughout the process. I appreciate the extra effort you put in to find the perfect house for me! I will absolutely recommend you to friends and family, and call you when I'm ready for my next property. Thanks."
- Rory Armijo
"Working with Marian was an absolute pleasure. She was attentive, warm and friendly but also worked aggressively to find us the perfect home under the perfect conditions to fit our situation and budget. She was always on top of every aspect of the process and we always knew that she had our best interests at the top of her priorities. Marian is genuine and trustworthy and after the entire process she was more than our realtor - she was also our friend."
- Andrea and Ben Bittner
"I first met Marian Krochka in the fall of 2004 when my family was looking for our first home. Since then, Marian has helped us sell that first home, buy a bigger home and also helped our out of town parents find a condo in Walnut Creek. Marian's warm and easy going personality helped us navigate through the daunting process of buying and selling homes. She was always sensitive to our needs and I felt secure in knowing that she had my family's best interests in mind. As many of you know, having small children can be a challenge in the house selling and hunting process and Marian often went above and beyond her regular duties as a Realtor to work with our hectic schedule and make things as easy as possible for us. After all these years, I am proud to have her as a friend."

"I have worked with Marian as both buyer and seller. She is organized, efficient and always one step ahead of the game. It is comforting to know that she will get the job done. She certainly knows her stuff and is not afraid to think outside of the box!"
- Barbara Amacker
"Marian has been an incredible resource as we sold and bought homes through her. She is very attentive to detail and is aggressive in meeting our real estate goals."
