" Her professionalism exceeded all of my expectations."

Marilyn is an attentive, assertive and professional agent. Not being an individual to conduct business without a personal meeting and geographic distances prohibiting as such, I was hesitant to proceed. However, she immediately had a buyer and consummated a transaction faster than I would have ever imagined. In fact, to fast, if that is possible. I unreservedly submit my recommendation as her professionalism exceeded all of my expectations.   Alan Easter    Sold Richard St., Bedford, October, 2015

Marilyn is a true professional! She has a wealth of knowledge in real estate and sold our home quickly for above asking price! I'd definitely call her again if I were listing another home for sale in Bedford County!  MARK AND KAREN BECK  Sold 332 E. Bedford St  May, 2015


Working with Marilyn can be summed up in one word - Fantastic. To elaborate: She is a hard worker, dedicated to achieving results. She sold our home quickly and helped us purchased another. Not only did she tastefully help stage our home - when the purchase of our new house became difficult/unpleasant she handled it well and made everything easy for us. My favorite attribute about Marilyn is her direct communication - no B.S.. She does what she says she will do -which from my experience in real estate is rare. She always has her clients best interests in mind. Buying or selling, she will get the job done. Bill and Sarah Pratt - Sold 232 E. Penn St. and Purchased 1602 Sweet Root Rd, Bedford, 5/2015

Marilyn Understood My Needs

Marilyn was very helpful in many ways with my home purchase. She returned phone calls promptly and found answers to my questions when she could not answer them herself. I think she understood my needs and helped me fulfill them. Shirley Stuckey (Bought a house in Everett, PA in 2015)


Marilyn is an excellent agent!

Highly Likey To Recommend!

My husband and I worked with her when making a purchase in Bedford and were pleasantly surprised by her dedication and willingness to help. She was always quick to return calls and help in any way she could.  .We highly recommend Marilyn. Lauren Calhoun (Sold a lot in Bedford, PA in 2015)



I have dealt with other realtors, but Marilyn has been the best. At our first meeting she had an instant connection with my mother and I. She went through our home and showed us what potential buyers would see. She staged several rooms in our home to make them warm and welcoming to others. She was familiar with the area and other homes for sale. She went over all the paperwork needed for processing and answered all our questions. After the contract was signed she went right to work bringing potential buyers through the house. She kept us informed at all times to what was going on after each showing. When an offer was made, she went over the offer step by step with us and was with us through the closing. She is a very interactive realtor. Wanda Gottschling (Sold a house in Schellsburg, PA in 2015)


Marilyn possesses the knowledge needed to sell or purchase your home, including staging a home to sell and a good grasp on market values. She is very helpful in guiding the process from beginning to end making sure no detail is overlooked. She goes above and beyond to get things done and is a joy to work with!  Kyle and Shannon Kane(Sold a home in Bedford, PA 2014)

"We apreciate her honesty and expertise. "

We have worked with Marilyn in both buying and selling a home. She is smart and willing to go the extra mile in making the process of purchasing or selling a home as easy as possible for her clients. We appreciated her honesty and expertise. We were able to sell our home quickly thanks to her.  (Lesley Yarnell...Sold a home in Buffalo Mills, PA)


"She helped us understand....happy to recommend."ill

We asked Marilyn to serve as buyer's agent and were very glad we did. She was able to tell us the pros and cons of different neighborhoods, knew the histories of most properties on the market (regardless of which company they are listed with) and helped us see the hidden potential of homes that could be transformed with a bit of paint. She happily spent a Saturday morning driving us around town with puppy in tow and helped us try to figure out how to fit our dream home into our finances. Though she wanted it to happen as much as we did, she also helped us understand when we were over-reaching, and I think that says a lot. I'm happy to recommend her to anyone considering buying or selling a home in the area.   Heather Natalie (Showed a home in Colerain Township, 2014)


"I guess that is why she is the number one agent in Bedford, PA."

My wife and myself had just retired in Arizona and I found the house we are presently living in on the internet, the listing agent was Marilyn Otis, I contacted her about it and she answered all questions we had over the phone and worked with us and the owners on a final price, my wife flew back to Pennsylvania to check out the house in person and it was every thing that Marilyn had advertised and much more. The virtual listing was very helpful that she had set up on her website. My sister has also used her and she has been helpful in finding plumbers, electricians, and just about any thing we need, she goes above and beyond your normal real estate agent. I guess that is why she is the number one agent in Bedford County Pa. And on a side note she even treated my wife and sister to lunch.  Jeff and Ruth Morgart

Listed and sold in one day!
Marilyn listed and sold my father's house in one day. We needed to sell my dad's house since he and my mother could no longer live there. Marilyn was courteous and very professional. as well as down to earth. She worked to get a fair price for this house, and then she handled all the details so that the sale went smoothly. Since we needed extra time post settlement, she worked with both the buyer and the sellers so that everyone was happy and the process went smoothly. One of the best agents out there for sure.
....Shelly McPherson, Everett, Pa, sold our father's home in Everett!

Marilyn is far above any….
A career in the military had us moving frequently and gave us the opportunity to work with a lot of real estate agents. Marilyn is far above any we have worked with. She not only was able to find us the exact home we were looking for, but she took the lead in processing the difficult paperwork required in a VA loan and made the entire process painless.  Since we are new to the area, she even directed us to great places to buy furniture and furnishings as well as people to make repairs and changes.
…Ray and Carol Day,  bought 1365 Buena Rd, Schellsburg
