John A. Ames, President of Ames Construction
"I, John Ames, have very high respect for Marlene VanSickle. I was fortunate enough to have her as my Realtor when I decided to sell my property on Bethany Home Road in Phoenix, Az. Although the market was down at the time I decided to sell, Marlene pulled through and was able to sell it for my asking price. Marlene is a very dedicated person and works hard for her client’s and she also adds a valuable quality to Russ Lyon Realty.”"

"Dear Marlene, I’m writing on behalf of Jim DeCara and myself to tell you how we feel about your professional handling of our real estate affairs. In this time of tight money and obstinate lenders, you managed to “Rescue” a very difficult situation. Thank you! Who would believe when the new property was selected, desperately at the last minute, you would get contract acceptance, move-in clearance in two days, and close escrow within four. Again our heart felt thanks and, you will be hearing from us. Sincerely, Richard Fair"

Thomas Might, President and CEO of Post-Newsweek
"Marlene is the consummate sales professional. When my wife Diane and I bought our home, Marlene was driven to satisfy our every need to the last detail –always one or two steps ahead of us and marching at a staccato pace. On the other hand, her charming and vivacious personality kept us at ease and made buying our home a lot of fun, even though we were 2,000 miles apart through most of the process. When it came to closing the sale. Marlene took charge and got us the home and the deal we really wanted."

Elizabeth A. Stinson
"One year ago, Marlene VanSickle began searching for “my” townhouse. It wasn’t long after our first meeting that we became friends. Marlene demonstrates a sincere personal concern for and an interest in her clients. She made every effort to know my likes and dislikes. She understood my finances and helped me stay within my means. She has been and still is very patient with me and has never made me feel like a bother. I am living in “my” townhouse. It is perfect for me, my lifestyle and my means. I am grateful to Marlene, not only for being a good, honest, dependable Realtor, but a good lasting friend."

Micky Whiting, Pres. Southwest Forest Industries
"Our first contact with Marlene as a real estate agent was several years ago. She sold our large hilltop home in Paradise Valley and handled this so well and so quickly that my wife Lorana and I ended up living in a Scottsdale hotel for several months while she found us a home to totally remodel. This also went even better than planned, and we live in that home today, not far from Marlene. We are proud to call her our neighbor and friend"

Laura Bowden & Terry DeQuina Prtn/Qiara Properties
" We were looking at the competition’s homes as a benchmark, for our upcoming project when we walked into one model home and met Valerie for the first time. We both left with the same thought in mind…..Valerie was just who we needed to represent our project in the marketing and selling of our homes. As our project progressed through the entitlement stage, and we began thinking seriously about a marketing team, out banker offered up a recommendation and coincidentally it turned out to be the mother and daughter team of Valerie and Marlene! As we were getting closer to formalizing our decision to move forward with Russ Lyon Realty, we had a small amount of skepticism at first about utilizing a firm with such a notable reputation for representing the high end market. We laid out our expectations for the entire purchase experience we wanted our buyers to have, knowing the test would come soon enough. As anyone in this business knows, what goes on behind the scenes with the customer requires tremendous amounts of work: especially if it is done thoroughly and professionally. Realtors with a strong work ethic know this – Marlene and Valerie have exactly that. It showed when the market was unsustainably strong when things can get missed in the frenzy. It also showed in the much slower and more competitive market, when it takes will power, creativity and smart strategy to make any sale. Any skepticism we might have had in the beginning was erased nearly immediately. Valerie and Marlene provided us with expertise, experience and most of all, the comfortable feeling that one gets when you know you can simply trust the people you are working with and depend upon. We enjoyed the kind of working relationship where we capitalized on each others strengths and covered each others weaknesses. No idea was ever dismissed without good discussion. It is that kind of team relationship that propels us past the average team to laser in on what needs to be done to succeed. We consider ourselves fortunate. Because of Valerie and Marlene, the critical phase of our project was a pleasant experience for us as well as our buyers. Our experience with Valerie and Marlene continues today. They are out there looking for us. They are out there taking care of issues that others would simply overlook at this point. They simply never stop working for us, thinking about us and caring about us."
