Marcia Hawken REALTOR® Testimonials

 

It was a pleasure working with you.

From start to finish your professionalism was exemplary. You assured me this transaction could occur, even though I live in NY. You handled all the numerous details involved in getting the property prepared for sale and staged the unit impeccably. Any issue that arose you were able to solve. You arranged for furniture removal, met with inspectors when needed, and ensured the unit was in pristine condition to be shown. You handled all the issues involved from the smallest to the most critical. You consistently kept me apprised of the goings-on. I really appreciated your clear and timely communications throughout this process. You were always available. Most importantly your expertise in the Naples real estate market was invaluable in this successful sale. Setting the price, advising on the offers, and communicating with buyer’s realtors…all done with clarity and in the best interests of myself as a seller.

Thank you.

She knows the Naples market incredibly well (we chose Pelican Bay).
We never felt any pressure at all. Her style is to take all the time we needed to find exactly what we were looking for. She educated us
thoroughly on the market. Naples can be overwhelming with all its options.


Once we defined exactly what we wanted, Marcia kept an eagle in on the market and kept us fully informed on possibilities. Marcia's communication and follow-up are outstanding. After visiting many homes with Marcia it was clear she is well known and highly respected by her peers in the trade. She is a sharp negotiator and we were very satisfied with the price that was accepted. During the closing, Marcia was with us every step of the way. Marcia introduced us to excellent professional services such as attorneys and insurance agents. Finally, Marcia has become a trusted friend. Couldn't recommend her more highly."

"Well, she is clearly the best there is. Made our months of looking very enjoyable. She listens and really understands her client's needs. Her knowledge is incredible. Through our somewhat long process, we all gained a new friend. I cannot imagine going through this with another realtor. She listed our old house and sold it within a few short weeks. Your company is definitely getting a gem."

Shelley and Larry Collins (Baltimore MD)


"Marcia Hawken is a superb real estate professional. She helped us buy our current condo and sell our old one. Contrary to the norm, after sniffing that the market had changed, she suggested a high sales price, urged us not to reduce it and she got it.
She has a terrific way with clients, in understanding them and their needs, and in gently guiding the process. She is a delight to work with. Smart, professional, classy. We have recommended her to friends with great success."

Maureen and Roger Parkinson (Toronto and Naples)


"Marcia, Thank you so much for doing such a fantastic job selling our unit! It's great to work with someone that is dedicated to doing the best job possible. It is my pleasure to provide you with a reference.. can't wait to see Sparky❤️

We chose Marcia Hawken to sell our home in Pelican Bay. We had been with another realtor previously and were not happy, made a change, and it was like night and day. Marcia brought in a fabulous photographer and videographer to showcase our home online, which created much more interest and brought in serious buyers. Her marketing reach is top-notch..especially in light of COVID 19 ...and can't be beaten. We had numerous showings which she handled personally...selling not only our unit but for the community as well. We ended up working with a challenging buyer but were under contract in 4 weeks. Marcia was wonderful in keeping the transaction moving along and getting to closing in a timely manner. She was always available to answer our questions (and the buyers!). She was knowledgeable, professional, responsive and a lovely person. We had a great experience!"

Because I was in Toronto for the entire duration of the sale, YOU WENT ABOVE AND BEYOND THE CALL OF DUTY: You probably would do that if I had been there.

1. Respecting the COVID challenges, you gave each customer a gift bag that included foot covers, a mask, and hand wipes plus pertinent info.?and maintained my subdivision's rules.
2. You followed up with each showing and reported to me in detail about them and all inquiries.
3. Besides efficiently processing and obtaining all the necessary legal and financial details, you ran errands I didn't know were needed? such as TVs to the dump, old computers somewhere to be trashed; filled, and hauled garbage cans on garbage days; watered plants, and pulled weeds! Disconnection of phone/tv accounts; return of PB membership card; keys to various people? and reclaiming same; coordinating appts. for an outside contractor and cleaners and disposition of ALL my worldly goods to various people and agencies; sifting throW my papers and personal effects and dealing with my pettiness and endless particularity; on-site labor emptying/packing/tossing/taking/delivering; loading your own car to overflowing to get stuff to where it needed to be.
4. Endless other details? ALL done with a sunny, positive disposition! It's what I do? comment when I exclaimed, "YOU SURE DO!!'

"We are loving our new home at Tiburon, and are grateful for Marcia Hawken's efforts in making the dream come true. I am especially appreciative of her long-term patience over a three-plus-year period as we worked toward our goal. Few in her profession ? or in many others? would have exhibited such patience and stayed in regular contact with a client who has a long-term plan.

Her professionalism, excellent listening skills, and kindness are other attributes that we have seen again and again over this time period.

It is a pleasure and privilege to have worked with Marcia. I will be happy to provide a reference for any potential clients who may consider using her services. You can be certain it will be flowing with praise."

Gordon Walsh (NAPLES, FL)


"Here is a wide range of skill levels within the real estate community of southwest Florida, from rank novice to part-timer to serious agent. Marcia Hawken is a consummate real estate professional. She listened to our needs and desires and did not waste our time visiting inappropriate properties, she was good at follow-up, she protected our interests, and was always responsive to our needs. She gave us sound advice during the entire process. She was willing to work with us during the 3-year timeline that we discussed before we were able to move to Naples. She also directed us to good providers of a home inspection, title attorney, etc. We both enjoyed working with Marcia and would highly recommend her to either buyers or sellers in the Southwest Florida area."

"I'm so happy things are moving along to closing. You were always very positive that it would sell. It took YOU to get it sold. Thank you so much!"

JoAnn Peterson (Naples FL)


"I am immensely grateful for your efforts in selling my condo so successfully, not to mention dealing with the issues that arose along the way. You smoothed all the wrinkles and made it easy for me to plan my next steps while you were working on the sale at all hours. Your knowledge and negotiating skills made a huge difference to the outcome."
