Seller in Palmyra, PA

After looking for a house for several months with no success, we met Amalia Marshall.

She did a great job from the beginning to end of our home buying process. Amalia helped us find a great mortgage broker, negotiated with the seller for repairs and credits, coordinated with contractors for estimates and made sure closing came in on time. i highly recommend working with Amalia Marshall and personally would do so again!


Ken was the most professional, and loyal, hard working real estate agent that I could of asked for.

He had all the answers to my questions and found ways to make the impossible possible. He helped me purchase my first home at 20 years old and guided me every step of the way. He was very thoughtful and caring about what i liked in a house and kept me updated on anything that was new on the market and any bumps in the road that we came across, he always figured out a way to tackle them. He does his very best and still keeps in contact with me to make sure I am still happy with my purchase and i definitely will swear by him to be the best and only realtor I will ever want!

D Berkheimer

Amalia is a wonderful and caring person.

Her professionalism is beyond any praise. We were first time buyers and had many concerns, but she was always there to answer any of our questions and was always thoroughly explaining everything. Amalia helped us to get our contract very quick, considering today's hot market. She was also very tough if she needed to protect our interests in conversations with the seller's agent. Thank you very much for all your hard work Amalia!


Amalia must mean Amazing in Romanian, because she is!

We bought our first home with a VA loan after a nine month period of back and forth travel from Vermont to PA looking at homes.Through this time Amalia was right there with us giving great advice. We didn't make it easy for her as we needed to secure jobs and then relocate so we had a pretty wide swath of central PA to cover. Once we finally got that taken care of we found THE house. Amalia went to work making the process as smooth as possible. Any little hiccup that popped up was handled easily by her.We now have our life home and an amazing new friend!

Home Purchaser in New Oxford, PA

Amalia Marshall was so supportive throughout our entire home search process and out-of-state location, keeping our best interests forefront at all times.

She was extremely knowledgeable about PA market conditions and real estate practices, and she willingly served as our representative in several matters where we could not be present while making the 3-day drive to our new home state. Not only was she highly professional, but she was also sensitive to the personal aspects of our making such an important life change. And, she and her staff achieved all of this under less than ideal conditions caused by the Corona Virus pandemic and within a nearly impossibly tight closing period. We HIGHLY recommend Marshall Real Estate Group - on a 5 star rating, we would give them a 10!


Great support throughout the entire process.

Knowledgeable and helpful with all aspects of selling. Amalia is personal and professional.

Audrey & Thomas

Amalia was a wonderful realtor and helped us find a beautiful home!

She was a pleasure to work with, providing great advice every step of the way. The process of buying a home is complex and can be intimidating. Amalia made it easy for us while ensuring we fully understood each step along the way. What impressed me the most about Amalia was her communication skills and professionalism. Whenever there was a question about a property she didn't hesitate to pick up the phone and find the answer. You can tell she is well respected by her peers. I would highly recommend Amalia to anyone looking to find their next home!


We have worked with Amalia Marshall, renting, buying and selling properties.

We could not have wished for a better realtor who goes above and beyond what is expected hence making every realty transaction go very smoothly. If you want a realtor that takes your interest to heart, go with Amalia - you will not be disappointed!!!

Andrzej & Ewa

We worked with Amalia in the past and she was the first person I thought of calling when we needed to sell my husband's childhood home.

I have dealt with Amalia on both the purchase and selling of numerous houses.

Seller & Buyer from central PA

She was professional, helpful and available when needed.

We would work with her again and also recommend her to friends and family. This was not our first time working with a realtor, but by far the best experience we've had so far.


We had previously worked with Amalia to buy our house.

After 3 years we received an amazing opportunity to move to Texas and needed to sell our house quickly. She was fantastic to work with on both fronts (buying and selling). She goes above and beyond what is required of her, and she has honestly changed our expectations of what working with a realtor should be. She is incredibly professional, organized and really listens to her clients. She makes the process easy and was able to sell our house in the blink of an eye with not much effort on our end. She also knows her clients well enough to be able to match them with other experts. For example, we needed an agent in the Austin area. She interviewed other agents in the area and was able to connect us with a great match. We needed an estate sale and she was able to and she was able to refer us to a local estate sale contact. She knows the area, her clients, and real estate. What more could you ask for from an agent? We always recommend her for selling or buying to friends, neighbors, and others interested in the service. A BIG thank you to Amalia for all her hard work, dedication and exceptional service.

The Strayers

We both bought and sold our home (10 years later) with Amalia's assistance.

In both transactions she was terrific. Helpful, positive, professional and reassuring. It is an unusual property and with us living 500 miles away by the time it went on the market to sell, Amalia was instrumental in providing the support, assistance, ad guidance we needed to sell the house. The brochure she put together is a keeper. We highly recommend Amalia. She is a consummate professional!


Amalia was highly recommended to me by a previous customer of hers.

I found her to be everything I was told and more! This was my first experience selling a home. She was very patient with my questions, made excellent suggestions every step of the way, and helped me meet my goal to be relocated while the weather was still good for moving. Even when she traveled out of the country she maintained contact and assured I ha da local support system for back-up. My home sold in less than a week! I definitely recommend her for anyone but particularly for first time sellers.


If you want a realtor that will go above and beyond to get you into your dream home then Ken Is the one for you.

I was in a time crunch to get into my new house and was moving from out of state with several issues trying to purchase my property, Ken was available and worked many late nights to make sure I got exactly what I wanted and got the best deal possible. He always made sure to keep me updated on everything I needed to know and kept in contact to make sure I was doing okay throughout the entire process. Easily the best realtor I have ever had the pleasure of working with. I will always recommend him to everyone I know.

K levy

Amalia was a pleasure to work with.

She was our realtor when purchasing and selling our home. When purchasing a home, she focused on us staying within our budget and made recommendations based on what was in our best interest. She always makes herself available to her clients, provides personalized advice/assistance and her customer service really goes above and beyond. She checked our mail for us when we were out of town and assisted us in ensuring needed repairs were completed when we sold our home. She's truly one of a kind and it would be hard to top the level of service she provides. We highly recommend using Amalia if you're in need of a realtor!

Z. Abdullah

I found Ken through a friend of mine that used his services previously to purchase her first home and recommended him to me.

As soon as I contacted him he was eager to answer any questions I had and helped me tremendously before I even hired him on as my agent. I had no knowledge whatsoever on the process and he helped me from start to finish, making sure to explain every detail without making me feel incompetent or taking advantage. He is very professional while at the same time making it feel like he’s been one of your friends for years. No matter what day or time I contacted him he would reply to me almost immediately, even late at night or on weekends. He has multiple clients he takes care of daily but makes you feel like you’re the only one. I could not recommend him enough whether you’re a first time home buyer, seller, or been through it already, he is the person to go to!

Kristina Slodysko

Amalia was not just a seasoned professional, she became like part of the family.

Every time we had a question, you could always reach her by phone. Anytime you wanted to meet with her she was there. She had great and also professional ideas of how to sell our house, she was very informative and has a lot of knowledge about the real estate business. She sold our home quickly. I have to say it was a wonderful overall experience having her as our realtor and we would definitely recommend her. My husband and I would not hesitate to call her again if we needed to buy or sell a house.


Amalia Marshall was a great agent!

She was very knowledgeable with real estate and everything that was currently going on with the market. But also she was kind, honest, patient, and someone we can now call a friend. I highly recommend her!


First time home buyer.

Amalia was very knowledgeable about the whole experience. Any questions I had were promptly answered and she had very good advice and opinions to give as well. She kept in touch throughout the whole experience and was always available to speak or meet when I needed to.

D. Stover

Ken assisted me with purchasing my first house.

I never imagined it being this easy. Thank you for all of your help!

joey arazi

Amalia is extremely pleasant and hard working.

She sold a lot for us and she took care of all the perc and septic scheduling, which I. never had another realtor offer to do! Amalia actually went out to the lot and made sure they put everything in the best possible spot. I couldn't have hoped to find a better realtor ad look forward to working with her in the future!


As a first-time home buyer, and buying a flipped home, Amalia and her team were there by my side the entire way.

With her and her team's knowledge, negotiating, organizing my inspections, and making sure that I was not inheriting a bad investment, it truly made buying a home an exceptional experience! I'd recommend Amalia and Jeannie for personal, family-oriented treatment. They considered all of the variables and made sure I was aware of the situations that came into play when buying a home.

A. Hill

After several less than satisfactory experiences with realtors in the past I finally found a great one!

I felt very early on and still do, now that the property is sold, that choosing Amalia over the other realtor I was considering was the best decision I made in quite a while. She is one of those rare people who is extremely competent and also just genuinely a nice person to deal with. Amalia could not have been more responsive, helpful or knowledgeable. I would not hesitate to use her again.


Due to some bad experiences in the past, my wife and I were completely against the idea of working exclusively with one realtor.

After speaking with Amalia on several occasions we changed our minds. Amalia has a great personality and unlike most people in the profession, she is very knowledgeable. Amalia paid attention to the details of what we were looking for. There were some unconventional twists to our hunt for a home, as my wife and I inquired about homes that were not on the market. Amalia stuck with us even though we took a more difficult path than most. We enjoyed working with Amalia so mic ad had so much confidence in her abilities that we recommended her to our son, who ended up purchasing a home with Amalia's help, as well.

Purchaser in Fayetteville, PA

Since 2007 Amalia has sold two of my homes and just recently helped me purchase a third.

She is a true professional, honest, knowledgeable and always willing to go above and beyond for her clients. It was her passion for the business that helped her land our first listing but it was her genuine personality and preference to treat folks not just as buyers and sellers but as individuals that made me both a client and a friend. I would definitely recommend Amalia if you are considering buying or selling a home!

L. Dutt

When we first started the home buying process we really underestimated how important it was to have a great agent.

We were working with a very inexperienced agent and ended up not buying a condo we put an offer on because we cancelled our contract. Amalia Marshall really went above and beyond in assisting us with the home buying process. We now own a beautiful single family home and could not be happier!

Stephanie S.

If you need a realtor in the Harrisburg-Hershey area (or beyond), you definitely need to all Amalia!

Simply put, she is awesome! She seemingly is available 24/7. She fights hard for the best deal or her clients, and her knowledge and networking abilities in the industry are unmatched. As if this wasn't enough, she is a kind, caring person with a sense of humor. We highly recommend her!


Amalia was very professional and was very good in keeping us informed on the progress and status of our property on the market.

Damaris R.

Working with Amalia was a great experience!

I was a first-time home buyer and her experience definitely made things a whole lot easier. She was extremely knowledgeable and her ability to convey information and explain things made buying my first home a lot less nerve wracking. She walked me through the process and answered any questions I had along the way perfectly. Her professionalism and overall personality is top notch. I had absolutely no issues when it came to settlement. Anything that needed to be addressed with the house was and her negotiating skills definitely showed. I strongly recommend Amalia to any buyer, first time or not!


Ken was a pleasure to work with.

He has a background in construction which meant he was able to help me find properties that were in great shape for a good price. He is kind and trustworthy and took the time to listen to my needs. I plan to work with Ken again and I highly recommend him to anybody who is looking for an agent in the area!

Amalia has a way of being friendly and business-like at the same time.

She is comfortable offering advice and constructive criticism both of which are helpful. She is knowledgeable and easy to talk to. She is easy to communicate with via phone, text or email. I enjoyed working with Amalia and recommend her as a realtor!

Seller in Elizabethtown, PA

It was absolutely wonderful working with Amalia!

She went above and beyond, showing us over 30 houses in four days and found the perfect home for our family. We highly recommend her and we now have a friend for life.


Amalia was very easy to work with, she provided excellent service as my agent to purchase a house.

It wasn't my first time buying a house and what I really like about her is that she was always 100% available to answer all questions and to show every property very fast, mostly in a few hours after my calls. I found her to be professional, experienced, honest, not pushy (listens to what her client wants), but appropriately aggressive when needed during negotiation time. House I bought, already had 4 offers when I placed mine, and Amalia made it happen. Highly recommend her as a real estate agent.


Amalia is the best!

You won't be sorry if you work with her. She is extremely competent, hard-working and easy to work with.
