About me

Marilyn Cantrell is a top-producing real estate veteran of nearly 30 years in the Northern Virginia and Washington, DC markets. Her prestigious awards, industry designations, and proven track record for helping buyers and sellers achieve their goals set her apart; yet her greatest reward and measurement of success is that 95% of her business comes from repeat and referral clients.

Confident, hardworking, knowledgeable, experienced, professional and personable are just a few words used to describe this outstanding service professional...and the list of praise goes on. That’s because when you hire Marilyn as your broker, she acts as both an advisor and a trusted friend who offers honest advice and information during every step of your transaction. “For most of us, real estate is the single largest investment we make. You deserve the guidance and expertise of a seasoned real estate professional!"

Marilyn is diligent and tenacious in achieving results that are in the best interests of her clients. She is expert at customizing a marketing plan for each of her seller’s properties to optimize awareness, attract offers and command the highest price. Buyers rely on Marilyn’s keen ability to determine their needs and think creatively to find the right home in the shortest timeframe. In all cases, her intimate knowledge of the local market and superior negotiating skills lead to seamless, successful deals.

Professionally and personally, she has always been of valuable service to her community. Prior to real estate, Marilyn served as Food Service Manager in Fairfax County Public Schools, and as a Housing Inspector for the Environmental Section of Fairfax County Health Department. A native of the Pittsburgh, PA area, she has lived in Northern Virginia since 1977. Will Cantrell, her husband of 30 years, and Marilyn share a passion for worldwide travel. They also share their home with their Irish Water Spaniel show dogs, Mickey McGuire, Shayla, and Forbes.
