Ricky Silbersher, Pound Ridge, NY

THAT was one of the most amazing experiences I’ve ever had professionally. Bar none. And I don’t know why, because it was very simple and straightforward. But I suppose the contrast between my sense of overwhelm, and Marlie’s calm determination, made for really powerful results. Coupled with the fact that you’re a very highly tuned organization that knows how to realize their client’s hopes, and I can only say glowing things about you.

I’m a huge team player—a career tennis competitor and university coach—so I know how a well-oiled machine works and what it takes to put one together. Marlie is definitely a high-performance team player who operates in such a similar way, so together I felt like she was able to BE me when I was too exhausted for the job. She listened completely, absorbed my intention, and maneuvered her assistant in order to efficiently support her very correct perception and prediction of what I was picturing and needing. 3 people were on the job rather than just me, but I felt like a month’s worth of work was accomplished. There’s still a lot to go but they freed me of the overwhelm, and now it’s just the design piece…and I like that part.

During our goodbyes I told this to Marlie but I’ll repeat it to you: in the morning I felt like I had gone in to labor and by day’s end I had my baby.
