About Marilyn Hayes: Success Stories

 She is extremely persistent and never leaves a rock unturned 


“Marylyn is top notch, she is versed in every aspect of marketing the crème de la crème. She is extremely persistent and never leaves a rock unturned. We had some major issues come up with our property but yet she conquered, keeping us extremely up to date with every move or plan that she had and in the end sold our property at top dollar. She has amazing marketing talents and we feel very grateful for everything she did for us.”


- Steve Pargman and Ralph Skidmore


 She was brilliant - totally on our team with our best interest foremost 


“Marilyn Hayes is simply the best! First, in her responsiveness to all our questions and thoroughness of her research: When we wanted a rental apartment she could offer an opinion on every building/neighborhood that we looked at to help direct that search. And, of course, her opinions were carefully thought out and reflected a tremendous knowledge of the city. They also reflected a clear understanding of our priorities and needs. When it came to purchase and our search was very specific - Marilyn must have called over 30 brokers or more turning over every possible option to find the undiscovered gem. And she did. Now it was time to negotiate and she was brilliant - totally on our team with our best interest foremost even at her own personal expense. Marilyn is honest in every way and moves through the highly charged environment of San Francisco high end realty maintaining her personal standards of excellence. You could not do better than be lucky enough to have Marilyn work with you.”


- Nancy & Pat Forster

 We absolutely trust her judgment and instinct 


“Marilyn is a true professional. She has an unbelievable grasp of the San Francisco real estate market and we absolutely trust her judgment and instinct. Marilyn is smart, detailed oriented and persistent. She negotiated a great price when we bought our first home and she was patient throughout the entire process. Five years later, she sold our home within 36 hours at 15% above our asking price. We were incredibly pleased with both of our experiences with her. Most importantly, she is a pleasure to work with and we now consider her a good friend.”


- Ryan & Amanda Barnes


 You are the consummate professional  


“Willis and I want you to know how much we have enjoyed working with you as our agent in both buying and selling properties. You are the consummate professional who always puts your client’s interests first and foremost, even if it is not convenient for you personally. As one of the hardest working agents in the city, you are exceedingly knowledgeable about the San Francisco market often hearing about properties before they are listed. Coming from a financial and accounting background, we are extremely impressed with and appreciate your organization, attention to detail and quick follow up handling all aspects of a real estate transaction. You really know your stuff from dealing with people, marketing, making sure a transactions goes as smoothly as possible, and, getting your client the best deal. Your great sense of humor eased us through some of the tenser moments in trying to close a deal. We always felt we were in good hands and would not hesitate to recommend you!”


- Willis & Peggy Newton

 She was great in anticipating issues and formulating solutions 


“Marilyn knows the San Francisco real estate market extremely well and gave us excellent recommendations throughout the process, with the goal of securing us the best price for our home with as few hurdles to closing as possible. She was great in anticipating issues and formulating solutions. Marilyn is very personable and was a pleasure to work with. ”


- Mich & Greg Conklin

 Marilyn found me ... an under-the-radar listing 


“After years of picking Marilyn’s brain on the state of real estate in SF, she was my first choice when I was ready to sell my Pacific Heights Victorian. The transaction closed quickly and I was mildly panicked at the prospect of finding a new home in a very limited time. Marilyn found me the most perfect condo in Presidio Heights, an under-the-radar listing. It’s been almost a year and I am still marveling at my good luck and her uncanny knack for recognizing the ideal fit for me. Well connected, well respected… that’s how I think of Marilyn.”


- Connie Tompkins McCole

 She tirelessly nailed down all of the dozens of small details required 


“Marilyn did an awesome job for us. She priced our property correctly and handled the negotiations with great tact. More importantly, she tirelessly nailed down all of the dozens of small details required to achieve a successful real estate transaction – even after the closing. We would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone in need of a realtor in San Francisco.”


- Vickie & Bill Johnson

 She is fun to work with 


“Marilyn Hayes has been the big advantage in our real estate transactions. She has a great eye for property, is an able negotiator, and is both direct and accurate in the advice she offers to her clients. In the ten years we’ve worked together - on the sell side and the buy side - she has been a reliable expert, helping to find the deal, close the deal, and follow up on the details. And she is fun to work with.”


-Will Hearst


 She was honest and forthright 


“We have a beautiful home in a lovely neighborhood purchased after finally signing on with Marilyn Hayes as our Realtor. We had looked unsuccessfully for five years. Her immense professional and practical insiders knowledge of the city’s Real Estate coupled with a precise technique for handling all the details of a sale sealed the deal for us. She was honest and forthright in her approach with us and we developed an appreciation for her keen knowledge of people and how to be of service to them.”


-Rear Admiral and Mrs. John Bitoff


 I would recommend her without hesitation 


“Marilyn Hayes represented me both in the sale of my old condominium and in the purchase of my new condominium, both in San Francisco’s Pacific Heights. I found Marilyn to be extremely knowledgeable, highly professional and, ultimately, very successful. She sold my first condominium for top dollar, and she got me into my new condominium at a very favorable price. I would recommend her without hesitation.”


-Barry A. Abbott


 No nonsense agent 


“Take it from people who have bought and sold residential property all over the county. Marilyn is the type of no nonsense agent you want representing you! She is our ‘go to’ expert for SF property. She takes care of all the details...”


-Usha and John Burns


 Not having to worry about the details was great 


“Marilyn Hayes was perfect agent to sell our Victorian. We initially hired a discount realtor, and quickly got bogged down in the details of all the little things that are wrong in these old houses. After a month, we switched to Marilyn. She knew the market well, and made the whole process incredibly smooth. The staging was beautiful, and the house sold right away at a great price. We had a brand new baby 6 months earlier, and not having to worry about the details was great.”


-Aleks Totic

 Her insight and professionalism have served us well 


“Marilyn’s knowledge of the San Francisco real estate market has made us feel confident that we were in good hands through multiple, successful transactions. Her insight and professionalism have served us well and we wholeheartedly endorse her ability to represent us either as a buyer or a seller."


-Sue and Ed Ward
