  • Anna Marie

    ·As I get closer to moving day, I'm especially thankful that God put this lady in my life. Marilyn Blankenship worked with me at Mix929, then went on to become a realtor. MANY years later, she's helped me find and buy my home. She prayed for me, searched with me and talked me through it with patience and a big smile. I would recommend her to anyone! Thank you, Marilyn. ‪#‎BestRealtor‬ ‪#‎ExceptForMySisterTerriInHouston‬ ‪#‎PrayerWorks‬ ‪#‎GodIsGood‬

  • Charles O

    Thanks for your excellent work in helping us sell the house. You are 2 for 2 with me in selling houses at a good price quickly. That batting average will get you in the Hall of Fame. Thanks very much.

  • Lori Singer

    I can’t even begin to thank you enough for all the help guiding us through the overwhelming process. Thank you for all your time and effort, your advice and your excellent referrals. We are so very happy in our home. Brad M

    Thank you so much for helping us with our first home. We are so grateful for your advice and assistance throughout the process. Meghan A

  • Laura Nixon

    “Marilyn has been so patient with us as we asked all kinds of questions about building vs. buying existing homes. Her services include all kinds of extras that other realtors we interviewed didn't. I believe her staging professional, photographer and tips on home repair prep got us a much higher asking price than anticipated. Thank you!”
