About Marjie V:
Marjie helps buyers and sellers to get the best deal for them (fortunately not everyone is looking for the same thing!). Who Marjie represents greatly influences how she negotiatates, but either way, her clients either get the right property(ies) evidenced by her experience.
Sellers have received the highest selling price in the subdivision, and buyers have purchased at the lowest price in a subdivision. Marjie helps sellers to get maximum market exposure in the shortest time and price their homes to sell especially in difficult markets.
Before earning her Real Estate License and Realtor designation in 2002, Marjie grew up in a real estate family and was fortunate to learn from those around her about real estate investing, managing properties and finding good deals. As a fourth-generation Realtor, Marjie has met and overcome many challenges through the years. She has completed continuing education courses in 2006 on Home Staging, in 2007 on Effectively Marketing Properties and Investment Properties and in 2008 on Pricing Homes, Virtual Tours, and Buyer Guidance. She is currently studying for her Oregon Broker's License.
Take a look and you will know that Marjie go above and beyond your expectations, do the work that is needed and will be there for you!
Whether working with buyers or sellers, Marjie helps her clients to get the best deal and serves as their advocate throughout the transaction.

Is a view of a golf course or lake important to you?
Do you like to cozy up by the fireplace?
How large of a walk-in closet do you need?
Do you need a spacious garage or shop?
What kind of monthly payment would you be comfortable with?
How much do you have for a down payment? - 3% to 5% is a good start. The more you put down, the lower your APR

"Marjie helped me save an extra $14,000 off a bank owned home and I was able to buy it 20% below tax assessed value!" Mary V.
"Marjie, this process is so much more fun than I anticipated! You found me the perfect house. If I were to draw my dream home, this would be it." Erin K.
"I highly recommend Marjie. I told her what I wanted, and thought it would be impossible to find: a view home, centrally located in Vancouver (Harney Heights neighborhood), around 900 square feet, with a view for $150,000, and on a quiet street. I was partially joking, thinking I couldn't have everything I wanted, but Marjie pulled it together and that is exactly what I got! Marjie is the best Realtor I have ever worked with (and I used to be one!)" - D.R.
"Marjie's alternative negotiating techniques helped me to save 20% off a bank-owned home! I was able to get a partially finished 2,564 square foot home for $155,000, when the asking price was $195,000! I am finishing it up now and hope to put it on the market for $420,000 in a couple of months. Marjie will help you save money." - Mark V.
"Marjie, We'd like to thank you for all your hard work both listing and selling our home, but also showing us the best home available for us. Thanks for the cooler which we have already put to use and the Costco Cards as well. You are very professional and clearly enjoy what you do... We are very grateful for your service." Cindee and Michael
"Marjie, thank you for helping Bill and I find our dream home, we have granite slab countertops! And it's right in the area we needed to be in at the right price! We never would have found it without you!" Paula and Bill
"Thank you for helping us find the perfect home and introducing us to our new neighbors. Our kids are so happy here and you found us the perfect house to support our entertaining lifestyle. Thank you Marjie!" John and Elysia
"Marjie helped us find a home that would be close for us to babysit our granddaughter in Oregon, but also in Washington state, so we could save on taxes in our retirement. The home is perfect! Close-in location, 3 car garage, and we got it for under $340,000! Marjie is highly recommended." Kim and Fred
"Marjie helped me find a home for my daughter close to the Pearl District in Portland, Oregon for under $300,000 that is a waterfront property! My daughter is so happy there: she has made new friends and it is close to go to the university. I just checked recently, and no property like hers is available now under $360,000. Marjie helped me to get the best deal!" Marianne
"Marjie helped me with buying a 3,000 square foot, bank-owned property that was on the market for one year and finally reduced to $97,000. With Marjie's detailed negotiation technique, she helped me get the price down to $76,000. Marjie is truly a talented negotiator." Mark
"Marjie takes excellent photographs. My other Realtor took close up photos of the couches, not the whole room. Marjie came in, staged my ENTIRE house and re-took all the photos except one! After her work, my house is now in escrow! Marjie is the best Realtor!" Derya
"Marjie helped me find a condo close-in, so I could end my 90 minute commute every day to work. She helped me save an extra $15,000 over comparable condos in the building and I have brand new kitchen cabinets!" Jonathan
"Marjie helped me find the perfect place for my little family. She came to every inspection and even for the appraisal. I think if she hadn't been there, it would not have come together. We really benefited from her detail oriented style." Joanna
