Listed home, but didn't sell
Marilyn was very difficult to reach and would not return phone calls. When asked why, she said she tried to call our cell phone, but could not get through - finding that hard to believe, we texted her from the phone and she didn't even respond to that. At one point she had a supposed offer that we were trying to negotiate via phone as she was travelling to CA which left us feeling slighted as she tried to squeeze our business in with her own personal business. We asked for a copy of the supposed written offer. She never did send it - so we are really not sure there was an actual offer. As far as contact and keeping us informed, we did not hear a peep from her or her office for a 10 week span as the house languished on the market. We ended up with a different agent and sold far below the price Marilyn suggested. Less ... More

Marilyn and her team are 100% the right choice when looking for a real estate agent in the Peoria area. Everyone on her team (including Marilyn) were true professionals throughout the entire selling process. As first time home sellers, Marilyn assured us we would have no problem selling our home. As soon as our house hit the market, her team went to work. Showings began immediately and within 3 days we had an offer. Much to our satisfaction, Marilyn negotiated a selling price above our expectations. Once the contract was signed, Marilyn's team took care of all necessary preparations for closing. We would recommend Marilyn and her team to anyone in the area looking to buy or sell a home! Less ... More

Completely professional. I have dealt with many realtors over the years and have not always been pleased. Marilyn and her team, however, surpassed all of my expectations. She had a clear notion of what we could expect to get for our home and helped us set an asking price I felt good about. (We had an offer on our house in 3 weeks). We sold our house remotely as we had already moved out of town. Several problems arose which Marilyn's team helped us resolve with minimal fallout. (As an example; the outlet pipe from our sump pump had frozen solid and the pump motor was overheating as the basement began to flood. Marilyn's team discovered the problem and referred us to folks who could fix it and clean up the mess at very reasonable rates. They also went out to the home when ADT had to come to change out batteries in the security system. Suffice it to say we were VERY PLEASED that we had selected Marilyn Kohn to be our realtor..

I worked with Holly Lahood who did a fantastic job in finding several locations that were in my price range in the locations I was interested in. She did a great job in negotiating a price with the seller and made sure that I knew what other steps I would be taking to complete the purchase. Holly did such a great job and so personable that my parents are working with her now to find a home for themselves. Thank you Holly for your assistance, it was great to work with you.

Sold my hard to sell house in a bad economy. Very knowledgeable about our area and the market. Considerable of contacts and a network that are invaluable. Best marketing by far and the best website in Central Illinois. Can't go wrong with Marilyn Kohn and her very responsive staff.

Marilyn provided the type of confidence in selling our home that we were looking for in a realtor. She explained the market and definitely knew the market trends. We were confident that if anyone would sell our home quickly it would be Marilyn. And as a result we sold our home!

She was a true professional. She made the selling and buying experience worry free. She helped negotiate a great deal with the sellers of the home we bought and then sold our house within 48 hours of listing it.

Never responded to my inquiry
I contacted Ms. Kohn twice about a property, and never received a response. When I finally tried a different agent a couple of weeks later I was told the property now had an accepted offer. It is very disappointing to be looking for a house and hace someone prominently display that they are willing to participate in the transaction, and not even have the courtesy of a timely response.
Response fromMarilyn Kohn
Melody, I am really sorry that you had this experience. I assure you that we are diligent about returning our inquiries. I have searched all my websites and email inquiries for my entire team and I do not see any inquiries listed for you. If you called in, we generally return all calls within 24 hours. Could you share with me how you tried to contract us so we can remedy the situation for future clients? Our goal is to always provide the best service we can for all inquiries. Thank you and I look forward to finding out how you tried to contract us! Less ... More

My husband & I just bought a home from Marilyn last week in Germantown Hills. We are returning to the area after 3 years in Wisconsin & are very anxious to get back. We wanted the 'perfect' home to return to. She spent SO much time with us weekend after weekend after weekend searching for 'just the right place!' We are extremely excited about our new home & so grateful for the time she spent on us as well as the knowledge she has about the area. This woman knows her business! Bonus?.... She's a lot of fun to be around which made those LONG days of house hunting bearable! I'm just thankful she put up with us & all of our lists of 'must-haves' that were a mile long! We HIGHLY recommend Marilyn Kohn! She won't let you down! Forgot to mention she sold our last home in Dunlap before we moved to Wisconsin. If we ever need to sell/buy again, guess who we'll call?

Marilyn Kohn and team helped my family buy and sell a home. Her team has marketing capabilities and energy is second to none. Throughout both the buying and selling process Marilyn and team provided great professional advice as well as demonstrated phenomenal command of the details. Marilyn's knowledge of the local market is staggering. She knows every detail about Peoria and surrounding areas. Throughout both transactions, I developed a long standing personal and professional relationship with Marilyn Kohn. Marilyn is highly recommended by me and my wife, Dennis Shipman Less ... More

Marilyn and her team are nothing short of fantastic. Our particular home purchase was relatively tricky with a number of difficult situations that came up. Marilyn gave us expert advice, added a home warranty to our offer (which we got) of her own accord, and was just incredibly calm, encouraging and helpful through the whole process. There was never any pressure. We have several properties which we hope to sell in the next 5 years and we wouldn't think of using anyone else for our listing agent. HIGHLY recommended! Less ... More

Here was my process on picking an agent. First I talked to people that were both in and out of the business of Real Estate, well Marilyn was 7 out of 10 recommendations that I should use her. Next I wanted to see what she offered to market my property compared to two other Realtors, (Marilyn won) Next, I wanted to have a one on one with her at the home I was selling, once there I realized I didn't need to interview anyone else. Wow is all I can say. However, let me say that after about 60 days I realized I didn't just get Marilyn, I got an entire team of office people supporting her. I understand from my business the cost of people, so I can't beleive she did all of this for the price I paid. yes I got my moneys worth three times over. Jeff Green Less ... More
