"Swift Trouble-Free Experience." I will be forever grateful that Ron referred me to you to sell my condo. I truly enjoyed the short period of the listing and selling and your frequent friendly contacts. I was truly impressed with your extensive preparation, presentation and explanation and with you as a person. You have a million dollar personality. My continuing thank you for a swift trouble-free experience. I know where I will refer anyone preparing to buy or sell real estate. Best Wishes,

"Your Kindness and helpfulness" Just a note to say a big “THANK YOU” for your kindness and helpfulness to our family and to our church family. In my experience you are simply the best “customer service professional” I have ever worked with. You make people feel like they matter and I couldn’t be more pleased with the way you have ministered to our church staff. I would vote you the top real estate professional in America. Sr. Pastor, Squaw Creek Baptist Church

"Excellent Work" Dear Marian, I am sending this letter to commend the excellent work on the listing and quick sale of our home in Marion. You worked hard in preparing our listing documents in a short period of time and were very thorough in following up with us and giving us constant updates. You, Roger and your assistant were, as always, very efficient, professional and fun to work with. Thank you all for a job well done! I want to particularly thank you and Roger for your friendship and for inviting us to numerous events which ultimately lead to our quick integration to the Marion/Cedar Rapids Community. We hope to see you in our area sometime in the future!

Important Client" Marian, Just a note to tell you thanks for everything! You always seemed to make us feel like your most important client. It is easy to see why you are a success in your business.

– W. Lynn & Ann M. Green, April 2010

Just A Short Note" Dear Marian, Just a short note to thank you for all your hard work & professionalism you shared with us while selling our home. I especially want to thank you for your communication. I always was kept up to date on what was going on.

– Pat Pick, April 2010

"First Time Home Buyer" Dear Marian, I'm not sure words can express how thankful I was working with you on finding my first home. Your dedicated and open communication during my home searching months were very much appreciated. I also can't thank you enough for working hard to make my first home experience pleasurable. You represent your client very well, and I will definitely recommend all of my friends and family to come and work with you when they are in the house selling/buying stage of their life. Any home buyer is blessed to have you represent them.

– Nicole Moore, April 2010

"Above & beyond our expectations!" Dear Roger & Marian, Thank you so much for all your help in the purchase of our new home and the sale of our old home. You have really done above and beyond our expectations. I am certain the insurance would not have paid what they did for the new furnace if not for your diligence. Thank you so much! We both won’t hesitate at all to highly recommend you to our friends if they need a realtor. It was a pleasure working with you.

– Dan & Marsha O’Connell, February 2010

Selling & Buying" Roger, our experience with you in selling our home and buying a new one was both pleasant and rewarding. Your expertise and wisdom became apparent as issues were resolved before becoming a problem. We appreciated your professionalism, and will recommend you as a realtor at every opportunity.

– Hal & Beverley Klink, February 2010

"True Professional" Marian is a true professional. Our first home buying experience was easy because of the attention to detail that Marian provided. We are real fans of Marian and have recommented her to our friends and business associates often. She does many extra things that separates her from her peers. When we consider our next home, we will be using Marian to assist us. I recommend her highly. President & CEO Cedar Rapids Bank & Trust

Well Organized & Always Prepared" In today’s world of self-service, fast service, and plain old apathetic service, it was refreshing to work with someone who cares as much about their work as you do. It is obvious you are good at what you do. You are very well organized and always prepared. You almost always had an answer for our questions, and when you didn’t, you were right on the phone trying to find out. We really appreciate the effort you gave. Undoubtedly you have many clients, but you always made us feel like we were your top priority. Giving this thank-you and small gift may not be the proper protocol, but we felt we needed to let you know how much we appreciated your guidance. Buying a house can be difficult and complicated, but you make it look easy. If an instruction manual is written on “how to” be a real estate agent, page one should say “See Marian Flink”. We will be sure to tell our friends and neighbors what a sweet, pleasant, and professional person you are, and what outstanding service they can expect from you.

– Lynn & Nancy, November 2009

"We have felt confident and comfortable" Dear Marian, Thanks for all you have done for us. We have felt so confident and comfortable having you as our realtor. Calvin has enjoyed your attention and now alerts us to any “Marian signs” when we are driving and he sees a Flink billboard! We are excited about making our new house a home. Thank you for all you’ve done for us.

– Greg & Keelyn Kanz, May 2009

"TOTAL SATISFACTION" We first met Marian Flink in 1999. As we walked our Marion neighborhood, we always observed the “For Sale” sign and it would seem that every sign with Marian’s name was sold within a short time. Based on this observation, when we decided to sell, we called Marian. We were not disappointed! We listed on Thursday, had an open house the following week and sold our home that day. Since this time, we have had the pleasure of Marian’s services with six properties (one of which was my Mother’s), with total satisfaction. Marian doesn’t simply place a sign in your yard! She offers helpful suggestions on making your home more appealing to prospective buyers, she gives you a complete synopsis of the current market in your area, potential length of time to sell and an approximation of what proceeds you might expect. Marian is very customer oriented and concerned with your total satisfaction. She exhibits high standards in her transactions. Words that best describe Marian to us are, experience, knowledgeable, patient, professional, concerned, a friend, and perhaps most important of all ethical. To sum it all up, she is the epitome of all you would hope for in selling or buying and follow up of your real estate transactions and we would highly recommend her services to anyone to whom these qualities are important.

– Don & Joann Davis, March 2009

"Thank You Once Again" Thank you once again for working with us to get to this point of the sale of our home. What a relief! Mom and dad are usually right and they were quite confident in you when they recommended we work with you to reach this conclusion. We most certainly appreciated your skill, knowledge and complete professionalism very much.

– Bob and Lori Davis, November 2008

"Professional Service" I am very pleased with the professional services offered by Marian Flink regarding the recent sale of my home in Marion, Iowa. Marian did a very thorough sales analysis and priced the home at just the right price for the current market. She also recommended and provided references for another person who actually packed all my things and cleaned the home for me in my absence. The home sparkled and her marketing expertise regarding the price and the advertising campaign generated many, many showings just as Marian had predicted. The home sold in less than two weeks and that brought much comfort to me as I was already out of town working a new job. She came through with all that she promised she would do for me in representing my home. This was extremely important to me given that she represented me in my absence from the community. I recommend her wholeheartedly to anyone in the greater Cedar Rapids area.

– David A. Stanton, September 2008

"Professionalism" We are writing this from our beautiful new home. We are so happy to be here and we have you to thank for all your work in helping make this possible. Your professionalism, your good communication skills and your attention to detail all made such a positive difference in these past months of planning for the transition to our new condo!

– Larry & Ruth Neppl, September 2008

"A True Real Estate Professional" Marian Flink is a true real estate professional. We interviewed several listing agents to sell our home. We selected Marian because she had current active listings, current sales activity, and an exceptional marketing plan. It was not a sellers market and Marian helped us close at what we considered a fair "top dollar" and in a good time frame. Marian's marketing of our home reflected a solid network of seasoned sales agents with her own and other agencies. She was available 24/7, gave us solid advice, calmed nerves, and helped with every facet of the sale all the way through closing. I highly recommend her for your real estate needs --buy or sell.

– Larry Duncan, July 2008

"Excellent Realtor" Roger was an excellent realtor for my husband and me, as we began a search for just the right home in a community that we were unfamiliar with. We described what we thought we might like, and on very short notice, Roger was able to select homes for us to look at that met our criteria. He was very accommodating and available for us, meeting our schedule and time requests. He did not hesitate to have the homes lined up for us to see, and was very organized and knowledgeable abut each home. We looked at most of the homes in one day and made an offer at the end of that day. It was wonderful to be able to have so many choices and to find one so quickly, especially since we lived out of town and time was an issue. Roger made the entire process very pleasant, and accompanied us as we met with the bankers, etc. He made us feel very comfortable and introduced us to all of the very friendly people at Wells Fargo. We feel that Roger has gone above and beyond as a Realtor for our family, taken a personal interest in each of us, and was a very good ambassador to the city of Cedar Rapids. He continues to make us feel welcome in the community, and we consider him one of our first “friends” here. Thank you Roger for all that you have done for us, and for making us feel welcome in our new home!
