She is an advocate for her clients unlike any other.

Ms. Marino works with both sellers and buyers and specializes in the downtown Chicago market from the South Loop to Rogers Park, from Logan Square to the Gold Coast to surrounding suburbs and neighborhoods.  She has extensive knowledge of rehabbing and building single family homes and has a personal interest and skill set for interior design, particularly modern, clean-lined space. She works with architects, general contractors and clients to help build the perfect spaces.


In her free time Ms. Marino is the Executive Director and Founder of a growing Chicago-based dog rescue having placed over 700 rescued dogs in homes over the past several years.  She is active in the animal-care community and a proponent for neglected and abused animals.  She has appeared in print and television media as an expert in this area.

"Molly Marino knows Chicago! She was very patient in dealing with our specific needs and remained cheerful and dedicated throughout our search. She knows how to negotiate and was very thorough in her research on the properties. Being from out of state, Molly clearly explained to us the real estate process in Illinois. We recommend Molly Marino!"

"Molly sold our condominium quickly and found us a new home in less than a month. She gave us great advice about decorating and staging and was helpful and patient through the entire process."

"After moving to another city, we found it difficult to sell our empty condo and received no offers. We knew we needed to change realtors and to stage the space. Our new realtor recommended Molly to do the staging. I appreciated the portfolio details and pictures she sent of her other staging projects, especially since we were only able to communicate over email being so far away. Molly worked quickly and communicated frequently about the progress, which was incredibly important after having trying to sell for so long. The first day that our condo showed we received 3 offers. The next day we received 3 new offers. Each of the offers were at or above asking price. I believe that Molly's choice of furniture and decorative pieces enabled potential buyers to see what a lovely space we were trying to sell. She did an amazing job and we would highly recommend her."

"I worked with Molly to sell our family home that we lived in for 18+ years. Molly was wonderful throughout the process, demonstrating support for us in this time of a big transition. She did an amazing job staging the house and playing up the historical charm yet adding little touches to appeal to all decorating tastes. She is very knowledgeable about the neighborhood and the market in the area. She took great care to be present for every showing so she could provide all the details each client needed. "

"I couldn't say more good things about Molly! I've worked with her three times (selling two properties, and purchasing a new home). She's SMART, professional, and politely tenacious - three qualities that make her a very effective and successful realtor.

With our last property sale, we moved out of state and were forced to deal with an average realtor in our new city. Molly received many emails and text during that transaction indicating how much we missed her!

Go with Molly."
