We appointed Marilyn over three other agents after meeting her a year prior. Marilyn was patient providing time to consider. I also appreciated listening to what Marilyn had to say from a woman’s point of view. Marilyn inspired confidence in us that we would not be let down with the services she and RT Edgar could provide. She understood the stress of making a decision to place two properties in an agent’s hands."
Marilyn brings warmth, energy and commitment and continues to achieve great results for her broad range of clients whilst working in real estate since 2006. She is an effective communicator who is dedicated to offering a high level of professional service. “Getting the message across is the key to selling a house. I have the skills and experience to tell the story succinctly and identify a potential sale opportunity for my clients.” Marilyn´s enthusiasm for getting involved in the Boroondara community, where she has lived for over 20 years with her husband and two children, is most evident to the people she knows.
She has a strong sense of community and a passion for the local lifestyle. “That communal spirit is particularly evident through the local schools and children´s activities throughout the area, where I see firsthand the willingness of people to get involved. I also love the diversity and quality of our local shops and restaurants.” Before entering real estate Marilyn spent many years in the health industry, both in the private and public sectors, holding training and management policy roles where delivering key outcomes to individuals and organisations was instrumental to her success.
This has served Marilyn well during her time within the real estate industry. Marilyn´s energy and vibrancy are clearly apparent and her strong customer service approach to negotiate successful outcomes for her clients is paramount. In her spare time, Marilyn enjoys spending time with her family, entertaining friends, keeping fit through taekwondo or relaxing at some of her getaway destinations such as Metung and Port Douglas.

“You were nothing but supportive and highly professional. Your philosophy that we were a team in this experience shone through. You assisted in any way you could, given the short time frame I gave you, even assisting in moving furniture for photographs, keeping me updated every day, offering me all the information you had so that I could achieve the best possible outcome.These things I truly appreciated.”

"Marilyn communicated well and engendered confidence in us as we encountered some hurdles leading up to the sale; nothing was too difficult, it could all be resolved. We particularly liked her resourcefulness and her initiative. Marilyn is clearly an effective and a caring person who supported us all the way through the preparation for sale, marketing and very successful auction of our properties. "
