Marilyn Bush - Watson Real Estate

Gainesville has been my home since moving here in December of 1966. I was born in Memphis, Tennessee and my family relocated to the small North Florida town of Perry, Florida when I was 4 years old. I loved growing up in a small town and cherish those memories and friendships. After graduating high school, I attended Santa Fe College and completed my degree in Elementary Education at the University of Florida. My husband, Tom, and I are big Gator fans and enjoy attending Gator sporting events, especially Gator football! We have three grown children, 2 sons and a daughter, a son-in-law and grandson.  We also have two four-legged children, Yorkies, Tebow. & Cooper. I love spending time with family and friends.

My experience growing up in a small town helped to instill in me important values that I carry today.  I value honesty, loyalty and perseverance and as a REALTOR®, I chose to bring these values to every real estate transaction with every customer.

With over 22 years of sales experience which include almost 15 years of practicing real estate, I feel it is a privilege to help each buyer and seller achieve their real estate goals and work to make every transaction as seamless and stress-free as possible.

I look forward to helping you achieve your real estate goals!

“ Marilyn was our Realtor when we purchased our new home. She ensured everything went smoothly and efficiently. Within a month we received an offer for our former home and we called Marilyn so we could sell it knowing that it would be done right. She did not disappoint. We are not sure when we will purchase another home, but she will be our Realtor when the time comes, and we will recommend her wholeheartedly to anyone needing a Realtor. ”November 25, 2013 - Harold McMullen and Kim McMullen

“ In 2011 and 2012 I was an IT contractor in Afghanistan. While there I spent a great deal of time viewing homes for sale online...primarily on allisonables.com. Marilyn Bush sent me an email politely inquiring about my needs. She stayed in contact with me...checking in every few months...until I'd returned home and was ready to look at houses. I appreciate her courteous professionalism and support throughout the entire process. I closed on my new home in March 2014 and absolutely love it! ”April 4, 2014 - Bobby Davis

“ Marilyn provided us with fantastic service. We cannot think of a single area that would need improvement. She found us the perfect second home and negotiated a great price. We could not be happier with her representation. She is the consummate professional and she has our wholehearted recommendation. ”July 28, 2014 - Michael LaMaire and Kristina LaMaire

11/04/2018 - blsleepMarilyn is a true professional. She is a perfect guide for both the experienced and first-time home buyer. You can depend upon her for timely responses to questions, prompt arrival at meetings and patient replies to the barrage of questions that come with shopping for a new house. I look forward to inviting Marilyn to see how we've improved and decorated our new home.

“ Marilyn Bush helped our family find our first home. Marilyn was very timely in her responses to emails and phone calls and was sure to follow-up with us on any questions we asked.

“ Marilyn Bush is very knowledgable about the real estate market. She is very patient and willing to go the extra mile to help you achieve the American Dream. If you are in the market to buy a home and want to work with someone that has your best interest in mind please consider Marilyn Bush ”November 21, 2014 - Shannon Penny

I had not made a move in over 25 years, plus I was going to be living on my own as a single woman for the first time ever. Marilyn put my mind at ease and assured me that my "forever" home was out there. And then she found it for me. She was tireless in her efforts to help me. ”December 6, 2014 - Lynne Driscoll

“ Marilyn was extremely helpful. During the process of finding our home, I was expecting my third child. Buying a home and expecting a child, with two more little ones in tow can be stressful! As first-time homebuyers, we were clueless and nervous, but Marilyn made the process simple. She accommodated our schedule (and the children who tagged along). She was patient with us in the search for a home as our initial contact was over a year before we actually bought! She was extremely prompt any time we needed something and made us feel comfortable. ”July 23, 2015 - Dana Preble

12/01/2017 - Liang ZhouWe have purchased our house through Marilyn. She is extremely knowledgable and very responsive. She is also very good at negotiation and skillful to be completive when there are multiple offers on the table. I highly recommend her!

08/03/2018 - rod779I cannot say enough positive things about Marilyn. We were selling my mother's house in Gainesville and were not living in the area. She handled everything for us - organizing people to clean, fix sprinklers, even following up with the roofing company after they damaged our garage door. She was prompt, responsive, and just a pleasure to work with. I highly recommend her to anyone looking for a great realtor.

09/05/2018 - wwswwsMarilyn and her team gave us great advice to a couple (us) that had been in the same home for 30 years. She made the experience of buying and selling homes a calming and knowledgeable experience. Both due to her advice and the market at that time, we sold our old house in 2 days! We found a nice home in Meadowbrook after looking. She gave us good advice along the way. I have no hesitation in recommending her to the next buyers or sellers

0/25/2018 - ChelseaWillis8Marilyn was very attentive during our search for the perfect home! She is very professional and also very personable. Enjoyed every minute of our home buying experience with Marilyn as our realtor!

10/30/2018 - franjonesLooking for local Real Estate office that could sell my house. Marilyn and her partner, Jack came out, looked around and gave me suggestions as to how to get it on market and sold. Even before the new roof was put on the home was sold. Marilyn kept a close eye on the property and got the "SALE" sign  "SOLD" Great job Allison Ables Realty and great job Marilyn for helping me with all the details and suggestions. THANKS for keeping the ball going on getting the sale closed and a check in the bank for me...Fran

1/13/2018 - judith ortizMarilyn kept an open communication with me all the time, was very diligent and professional. I live in Puerto Rico and she provided me with a list of lawyers in the Gainesville area. I was able to complete the sale thanks to her assistance.
