Professional Information:
Being a lifelong Walla Walla Valley resident, I know the area well and I am ready to serve your real estate needs with the professionalism and kindness you expect and deserve.

I previously worked for Reese Baffney Law Office for 3 years and at St Mary Medical Center in Nursing Administration. After staying home with my children for several years, I pursued the profession I always wanted to work in, real estate. To be able to assist people with such an important decision, is something I find very rewarding and take very seriously. I really listen to my clients needs and adapt to their individual situations. I would love to have the opportunity to help you through the home buying/selling process!

Personal Information:
I am a proud mother of 3 children; Brian, Emily & Justin. My husband, Travis is employed at the Washington State Pen. When not working, I enjoy spending time with my family and attending the kids' sporting events. I also enjoy reading, baking and summer BBQ's.

"For anyone, the purchase of a home can be a daunting and confusing experience. Add to that the fact that my husband and I were first time home buyers in pretty unsettling economic times and you begin to see what a challenge Marli Jerald had on her hands dealing with the likes of us. Marli was understanding and patient with our questions and concerns and was happy to work with us even though our price restrictions may have sent other agents running for cover, or at least not answering our calls. We've been in our new house for a month now and can still count on her to check up on us and make sure things are going well."
- Leesa Phaneuf-Reynolds and Matt Reynolds

"Marli Jerald is fantastic! She was very patient as we searched for a suitable property on a strict second home budget. More impressively, she really listened to my very lengthy wants list. We ended up finding the perfect home and appreciated her help so much. She is a true gem! I would enthusiastically recommend her to absolutely anyone looking to buy or sell real estate. Thanks again for everything, Marli!"
- Jessica and Jeffrey Rub

“Marli was extremely easy to work with, very responsive when things needed done. Since we don’t live close, Marli went above and beyond when we weren’t able to be there”
- Marty Robinson

“Marli was fantastic to work with. Her communication was upfront and frequent. My wife and I did not live close to the property we wanted to sell. Marli was accommodating to our distance and proactive with her coordination of repairs and small asks (e.g. moving the garbage can). We recommend her when you need to sell your property, we had a great experience!”
- Zillow Review

“Marli is fantastic! I can’t possibly do her justice with this small amount of space, but will give it my best! 1. She is kind and gracious. I went through Marli to both buy and sell a home and she was always pleasant, accommodating and upbeat. Even when I felt distressed about a process, she was reliably calm and helpful. 2. She is professional and knowledgeable. Whether it is knowing local contractors for carpet, cement and cleaning or managing home viewings and constant questions from first-time home buyer, she has quick and accurate answers, and is honest and straight forward. She also knows how to navigate the home buying process with finesse and expertise. She made signing papers, and doing all the little bits of buying/selling a home seem easy. 3. She knows Walla Walla. I think she might know everyone that lives in Walla Walla. Additionally, any question about the local real estate market, the value of a home, and best neighborhood or the best local quality services… She has answers. I just can’t say enough about how wonderful it was to work with Marli. She is the best!”
- BobbieSue

“Working with Marli was an absolutely fantastic experience. As first time homebuyers, we had a LOT of questions and anxiety about the process, and Marli was incredibly thoughtful and patient every step of the way. She is knowledgeable about the area and different neighborhoods. She also took the time to really understand what we were looking for in a home, which made house-hunting much less overwhelming. We will definitely work with Marli again if we find ourselves looking to buy or sell a home in/around Walla Walla!”
- Zillow Review

”Marli is absolutely fantastic! She is a delight to work with and incredibly responsive. My husband and I just purchased our first home with Marli’s help and she was beyond patient with all of our questions. Marli knows the area extremely well and always kept us updated on houses that matched our interest. She really listened to everything we were looking for and was happy to go view houses for us when we weren’t able to (we were purchasing from another location). Marli is extremely responsive – it was impressive how quickly she would get back to us with answers to questions or updates throughout the process. She managed all of the conversations with the seller/builder of our home and she gave great advice as we walked through the buying process. She even helped us with last minute questions after we closed on the house. She truly goes above and beyond. I would recommend Marli to anyone in the area – you will not be disappointed!”
- Zillow Review

”Marli has helped us sell two houses and buy one house. She is very helpful and knowledgeable. We would not consider anyone else to work with. She sold both houses within 2 months (listing to closing). She goes the extra mile and she knows what it takes and is available to answer questions, whenever.”
- Karan

“Knowledgeable Realtor that sincerely wants to help find the right house for you. It took us a while to find the right one, but Marli stayed positive and was very encouraging. She also helped us determine which houses were not good fits by asking thought provoking questions. Highly recommend!”
- Rebecca Cooley
“Marli was amazing! She dealt with everything like a pro and handled all of our worries as first time home buyers with care, putting us at ease throughout the entire process. She was a stellar communicator, coaching us through the intricate details and negotiations. Even with slight glitches, the process remained smooth. We could not have asked for a better Realtor!”
- The Coolbergs

”Marli is absolutely wonderful! She has been so patient with us in our search for the right home. She is incredibly helpful, but never pushy. When we did find the right home, she was there with us every step of the way and made was could have been an overwhelming process feel like a breeze. I would highly recommend Marli Jerald to anyone looking for a Realtor to help them through their journey of buying or selling a home!”
- Ashley

- Josh and Tera
”We really appreciate Marli and highly recommend her! She was very responsive, friendly and helpful. She guided us through the entire process, which was crucial, since this was our first home sale.”
- Zillow Review
”Marli is very hard working. We had a few issues selling one of our homes. But she was there every step of the way. She was very helpful and patient. I will definitely use her as our Real Estate agent again!”
- Alice

“Marli was great to work with and very friendly. As first time home buyers, we were unfamiliar with the process and she made it very easy. Always quick to respond with helpful information, we were lucky to have an agent as wonderful as Marli.”
- Lara Meyer
”We were totally impressed with Marli and how professional she was while we were selling our house and finding the condominium we purchased. We can’t say enough how happy we were with the job she did! If you are looking for a home in the Walla Walla Valley, Marli would be the best choice!”
- Mark and Lisa Klicker

”I felt I could count on Marli to be honest, fair and competitive in helping me sell and buy a new home in very little time. Shew as always available when I needed to talk to her and was always professional in all her dealings with me. I would highly recommend her!”
- Karie Jacque
”Marli was professional and personable. Every detail was attended to and she was in close contact with me throughout the process, willing to answer questions or to address concerns. She went above and beyond in my situation and I would highly recommend her if you are in the market to buy or sell a house!”
- Jaci Cress

“We have now bought and sold with Marli, and would recommend her for both. During the sale of our property, we received multiple offers which was a bit overwhelming. We feel that Marli did an excellent job of negotiating to get us the best price possible while leaving both parties satisfied with the end result. Thank you Marli!”
- Zillow Review

“Marli worked to make our dreams come true. Being first time homeowners, looking for a home with plenty of acreage (land with or without a home) we wanted a representative who was willing and ready to act on our behalf at a moment’s notice. Marli is uncompromising. She works to make YOUR dreams a reality. Marli is dedicated. We gave her our list of non-negotiables. She didn’t question our goals or try to provide advice as to “what would be best” for first time homeowners like Realtors have done to us in the past. Marli is respectful and driven to reach YOUR outcome. Marli has our highest recommendation and we look forward to working with her in the future as we work to make bigger dreams come true. Thank you, Marli!”
- Zillow Review

“We have never had an experience like buying our home with Marli and we have purchased many homes over the years. She is knowledgeable, very quick to respond, no-sales type pressure and creative in her negotiations. In my opinion, she is the perfect real estate agent.”
- Matt and Julee

“Marli is very helpful with every step of the process. Truly made the home buying experience painless. I would recommend Marli to anyone. She is very knowledgeable of local lenders, handyman, etc.”
- Zillow Review

“Marli was great to work with when I was selling my home. Her suggested listing price was right on target and my home sold very quickly. I am now working with Marli to find the perfect home to purchase.”
- Zillow Review

“Marli was a delight to work with, she did exactly as she said she would do and when she said she would do it. I recommend her to anyone and hope to work with her again.”
- Zillow Review

“Having worked with Marli on the sale of one home and the purchase of another, she has proven herself knowledgeable, friendly and accommodating. She goes above and beyond for her clients and if they aren’t friends of hers beforehand, they are afterwards.”
- Shanna

“Marli was a pleasure to work with. We were first time home buyers and she was knowledgeable and helpful through each step. She was always right there working with us to show us homes. Some homes we had seen more than once or twice and it didn’t bother her a bit. She is a very kind hearted person too, and genuinely loves her job. I never once got the feeling that she was out to make a quick buck. Now, we live in the home that we always wanted and the buying process was so much easier than we ever anticipated because Marli knows what she’s doing. We miss working with her!”
- Zillow Review

“Marli was very helpful while we were buying a house. Buying a HUD house takes a lot of patience and Marli was on top of all the small details. We were buying a ‘fixer upper’ and Marli was always around when we needed another peek at the house to get measurements. We will definitely use her again!”
- Jerad and Heather

“The experience of selling an old house with lots of problems and finding a new place to live wouldn’t have been possible without Marli’s expertise. She gave it her all and was always there when I needed her. Without question, I would recommend Marli.”
- Annie

“Gets back to me in a timely manner with answers to my questions. Willing to help out when I was away from the residence – drive by lookout… A good assist even after the close of escrow.”
- Zillow Review

“I have had the great opportunity to work with Marli two times! She initially helped us find a wonderful home in Walla Walla. Not long after purchasing the home, my husband was transferred for his work. We turned to Marli to list the house. She was so amazing during both processes! We were in a position at the start of the sale process wherein the home was vacant and in desperate need of new flooring to aid in the sale of the home. Being 300 miles away, and needing to completely replace the flooring in the house was incredibly stressful, especially since the carpet company took three weeks to complete a three day job. Marli was a Godsend during that process. She went in and made an in person approval, verifying the quality of the flooring. She then acted as our local liaison with the flooring company, checking their progress frequently and reporting back to us. There were so many ways that Marli went above and beyond to assist us in the sale of our home! I found Marli to be incredibly patient, kind, knowledgeable, friendly and professional. I have the great pleasure, after going through this process two times with Marli, to not only have her as my real estate agent, but to call her my friend. I would not hesitate for a second to refer Marli to anyone who may be looking for a home in the Walla Walla area. You will be thankful you chose her!”
- Krissy

“Marli was consistently helpful to us throughout the entire process of looking for and purchasing a home. In the beginning of our home search process, she asked the right questions to find out what we were looking for until she had a good grasp of our “wish list”. And then, Marli was willing to show us potential properties any day or time that worked for us. We would recommend her services as a Realtor and would definitely use her as a Realtor for any future home buying or selling.”
- Dan

“Upon moving to Walla Walla, my husband and I built our dream log home here. It was on over an acre and custom built for our needs at that time. At just under 3,500sqft, the house was perfect for entertaining and hosting. But after living in the house for 12 years and raising our two sons there, our dream house had served its purpose; we longed to have less land and less house to maintain. My husband and I both had recent changes in career (my husband retired after serving 21 years in the military and we both took positions in local High Schools) and did not want to have the maintenance of such a big home and yard. We wanted to be free to travel during our summers. SO in passing, I mentioned to my new friend, Marli Jerald, that we may be interested in selling. Then, every few months, I would jokingly mention it again. You see, we didn’t want to go through the hassle of listing in a down market. I truly felt that if it was meant to sell, it would happen organically. A few months later, Marli was awoken from sleep with a potential perfect solution. She had sold a house for a family in town a year prior and had been showing them houses for a year until realizing that our house might just be the perfect fit for them. I remember praying that if we were meant to sell, that it would be a seamless event and the answer would be clear. They previewed the house, which was in no way “show ready”. They made an offer and after some negotiations, it was theirs. Someone else’s dream log home. I thanked God for his provision. We then began our brisk search for our next home. We toured about 10 houses and then walked into one with the following verse already painted on the wall leading up the stairs: “All I have needed Thy hand hath provided, Great is Thy faithfulness Lord unto me.” That was our house, it had been made clear. Now let me be clear, this story is significant for the following reason: We sold our home and bought a new house all within a months’ time (both of which were not even on the market). That is a strong testament to an agent whom is attentive, proactive, in-tune and on the ball. I am blessed to call her friend, and Realtor Extraordinaire.”
- Cathy and Mark

“I would absolutely hands down recommend Marli! She was the first Realtor we met with that took the time to really get to know us and take us seriously. Being younger first time homeowners, we were new to the process. Marli walked us through every step of the way and was able to accommodate our difficult schedules. I cannot say enough good things about her and hope to work with her again in our future real estate endeavors.”
- Zillow Review

“She sold our home in less than a month and helped us get into our new home just as quickly! So wonderful! She kept me updated via email, text and phone calls every step of the way. I was sad to be finished so quickly since I wouldn’t have any more reason to talk to her!”
