Marlene Eldredge is a true example of integrity, honesty, hard-work and creativity in everything that she does. These characteristics have carried over wonderfully into her real estate business. As a native to Washington State she has a true love for this area! Having grown up on the Eastside, she knew this was where she wanted to raise their 3 children; enjoying all the things this beautiful area has to offer. She loves enjoying the outdoors with activities that include hiking, cycling and running or walking nearly every day. Her and her husband love to travel! They downsized last year to a condo in downtown Kirkland, which they absolutely love! When you work with Marlene to find your dream home you will know you are getting more than just an agent!

Marlene co-founded Real Time Data in 1993 which became the leading provider of data from vending machines in the country, delivering customized sales, inventory and activity reports. Marlene was responsible for the HR Department at RTD, hiring with an emphasis on the quality of character to achieve her goal of delivering “Customer Delight” to the market RTD served.

November ’15 – Seattle
Relocating from another continent to an entirely new city and getting a place to rent within a very limited time could easily turn into an unnerving experience without capable support! Fortunately, when I relocated from Asia to Seattle for the very first time in Nov 2015, I was connected with Marlene Eldredge, through my employer. She turned out to be a God sent early Christmas gift in helping me secure (with lightning speed turn around) an apartment to my taste within an affordable budget!
Marlene has a superior professional approach to work but at the same time is very patient, which gives one a sense of security when dealing with her. She proactively provided me timely information and invaluable insights about real estate in Seattle and was always available for consultation at all times. I will always be internally grateful that she did everything possible not only to help me secure the apartment but followed up to ensure that the lease agreement and the move into the apartment was smooth and seamless. Her kindness and extending a helping hand in sorting out challenges that come with moving into a new apartment turned my relocation to Seattle into a pleasant experience and gained me as a friend, at a time when I needed to land on my feet running to commence on a new job.
Thank you Marlene and all the best as you support other clients!
