I am writing this letter to express my sincere and utmost gratitude for having such a wonderful real estate agent, Marion McKenzie. Marion is not only professional but she expressed such genuine candor and kindness that I would be remiss if I didn't share my experience with you.
I recently relocated from New Jersey to central Florida through Lockheed Martin/Cartus Relocation. When I first received the job offer with Lockheed Martin, I started my Google search for one of the top realtors in the Kissimmee/ Orlando. When I saw Marion's online profile with her credentials, I was impressed, so I called her and sent an email to introduce myself. I was in urgent need of a realtor that could show my family homes within a three day notice. Not only did Marion answer her cell phone when I called to introduce myself, but she re-arranged her busy schedule so that she could assist me.
In the course of three months, Marion was able to show us over twenty homes until we were able to make a decision on the home of our choice. With any relocation, there were some roadblocks, but Marion was able to resolve any issues that arose with efficiency, tact, professionalism as well as high ethical standards and integrity. Her knowledge of the buying process is tremendous and her passion for making difficult clients, like myself, feel comfortable about the process is exceptional. I am so grateful to have had her as my agent and will recommend her to my family and friends who will be relocating to Central Florida. My family and I are now living in our dream home and we are so pleased with Marion's services.
In closing, I hope this letter provides you with the information you need to recognize Marion McKenzie because she truly deserves the highest recognition for her work.

I wanted to write to you both about the exceptional service my wife and I have received from Marion McKenzie a broker associate with your company. After a great start thanks to the help from Elizabeth Landgraf your Relocation Director, we were referred to Marion who over the past year has helped us to find a property here. Her professionalism and efficiency have ensured that we have found the right house at the right price. She has patiently and comprehensively explained all aspects of the buying process and answered all our many questions without delay.
We have now decided to use Ackley Florida to help us rent our property out on a long term basis and are fortunate that Evelyn Pacheco is helping us to do this.
We have nothing but good things to say about the service we have received from Elizabeth, Marion and Evelyn.

My name is Sharon Allwood and until today I was the distressed owner of a house in Kissimmee that has been on the market for almost a year. My ex and I listed the property with Coldwell Banker and the realtor left the company during the listing period.
Marion McKenzie was assigned to us and with her eagerness: flexibility and stoic professionalism our property was sold rather quickly. She was an ally and an asset during this frustrating period.
Please add this to her file.
Sharon Allwood (A very satisfied customer) (Seller)
As overseas owners selling property in the US, Marion provided all the necessary information needed for us to sell our property promptly, efficiently and without any hitches. She negotiated locally and kept us fully informed of all aspects of the house sale, guiding us through an unfamiliar process. With her expertise the whole experience was far less daunting than anticipated.
We would highly recommend Marion to any person wishing to buy or sell their property.
Virginia Farr (Seller)
Needing a real estate agent to handle our home sale while in the process of transitioning our family out of state, we were introduced to Marion as the result of a referral. Marion responded to our call quickly, and we met at our home to discuss our situation, that we had already begun the process of moving, and needed assistance getting our home sold. Our initial impression of Marion was that she had an excellent grasp of the local real estate market. We listed our home with Marion at a price my wife and I were comfortable with. Throughout the listing process, Marion handled several open house showings while we were out of town, working with several potential buyers, and even oversaw repairs to our home as the result of Hurricane Irma tearing through Central Florida. We closed on our home after Marion successfully negotiated with our buyer for a price higher than initially offered! Not having previously listed a home with a real estate agent, I now know that I was dead wrong about the real estate business. DEAD WRONG. We simply could not have sold our home in the short time it took without the thorough, professional help from Marion. The entire process was seamless and extraordinary. Thanks, Marion!
Andrew & Melissa Gammon (Sellers)

Marion was a blessing for us. Her knowledge is extensive and combined with her vast experience in dealing with military families she was fantastic! We were able to shop for and purchase a home from overseas, as Marion was quick to communicate, send info, visit properties and file documents. She knew the area very well and answered our million questions in a timely, professional and satisfying manner. She always had our best interest in mind and it showed in everything she did for us. In a tough sellers market she ensured our success and pleasant buying experience. We highly recommend Marion and would most definitely work with her in the future.
Karen Walters (Buyer)
We had a very good experience with Marion at a very difficult time to sell a house.
Marion was very professional and showed a lot of knowledge of the local market. We had a unique challenge with a road behind our house that took some care and feeding to find the right client that understood the value of the location as we understood it. When that person came she made the transaction go smooth.

Marion McKenzie is a 5 star Agent!
After years of thinking about purchasing a vacation/rental home in Florida we finally were ready to start looking. We live in Vermont and needed an an agent in Florida. We asked our longtime agent here in Vermont if she could recommend an excellent agent in Florida that would understand our needs and help us find the perfect place for us. She recommended Marion McKenzie and she was right. Marion first talked with us about all the things we wanted in a property that would be our vacation home and also a rental property. She made recommendations for specific areas where we could look near Disney and began sending property listings for us to look at and help us refine our search. Once we found any property that we liked Marion did a virtual tour with us (this was the time of COVID) and showed us the property as if we were actually there. She was our eyes and didn't miss a single corner of each property. She gave us honest opinions about the property and the location based on our needs. She gave honest feedback about the positives and negatives. She became a trusted partner in our search.
Once we found a property that we wanted she helped us every step of the way, keeping track of everything and making sure that we didn't miss anything. Most important for us was the fact that once the sale was completed she continued to help us when we needed anything.
She was, and still is, a trusted friend.
Barry & Maureen Genzlinger (Buyers)
Marion is an excellent real estate agent. She is well informed and honest!
My experience with Marion, is that she have kept me updated with details of the sale of my home. I like her honesty, as well as explaining details in the process of the sale. When she did not have answers to my questions or concerns, she would refer me to specific specialists in her office or consult with them on my behalf.
