Marian Millard

Marian Millard

REALTOR®

Marian’s success in real estate is fueled by her love for Austin, her extreme attention to detail, and her desire to exceed her clients’ expectations at every turn. A native Texan, Marian earned a Communications degree from the University of Texas at Austin and spent 11 years working in live network news in the control rooms of CNN Headquarters in Atlanta. When Austin called her back home in 1999, she elected to earn her stripes in the business world by becoming the first employee of a start-up that eventually grew to global status. The experience gained in negotiating and overseeing international projects, assisting clients from all over the world, managing deadlines, and keeping her cool in stressful situations prepared her to finally merge her business skills with her true passion – real estate. She has been on fire ever since.

Marian understands that buying or selling a home is a life-changing event and provides more of a concierge approach to serving her clients, especially those relocating to Austin. There is no task too big or too small - from advice on schools, selecting the perfect neighborhood, helping coordinate a move or staging a home for sale (even packing a box!), overseeing contractors, or monitoring all details of a new home build from start to finish. You name it, she’s on it – even after a sale has closed. It’s important to Marian that each of her clients feels like they are her ONLY client and that as much stress as possible is eliminated from a transaction. Most all of her business comes from referrals, which is a true testament to her market knowledge, negotiation skills, enthusiasm, and the overall quality of service she provides.

But be prepared. Marian loves to laugh so there will always be a little humor involved when you work with her!

Marian is a Central Austin specialist and is well versed on the luxury markets in Westlake, Tarrytown, Cat Mountain, Mt. Bonnell, and Highland Park West. When she’s not previewing a home or writing up a contract, you will find her exploring Austin with her husband, Mike, and daughter, Audrey. You may even catch her at her neighborhood CrossFit gym attempting to perfect her handstand push-up or her deadlift. Marian and her husband are strong advocates of open adoption and have found their calling in assisting those who have adopted or are considering adopting a child.

We absolutely loved working with Marian and were grateful to be linked up with her through my employer. We were demanding, out of state buyers, who were looking for "just the right home" (my wife is an architect, and so this phrase has a whole different meaning) that would be close to two different work sites and offer the perfect environment to raise our two daughters. My wife made multiple trips to Austin to look at homes during which Marian always made herself available, despite being in "high real estate" season. After having found our ideal home, we had to repeatedly bargain with the seller and their less than friendly real estate agent on home price, items to be included in the sale, post-inspection deficiencies and compensation. Marian was EXTREMELY patient and seamlessly guided us throughout the entire process. Outside of her absolute competency as a real estate agent, Marian is a kind and lovely person.

We worked with Marian Millard after she was recommended to us by a friend. She was a blessing in our lives and helped us accomplish our dream of buying our first home. She always went above and beyond, from helping us find the best people to do our inspection to personally calling electricians when we had an issue before closing. If an issue did come up (which were very little), she would always call me with a solution, so I never felt worried or nervous during the process. She also helped me get in touch with the lender we chose, and between the two of them we had the dream team!! We appreciate Marian very much and recommend her 100%.

I had an extremely awesome agent Marian Millard. I was a first-time buyer, and my agent did an outstanding job. She delivered exemplary, personalized service that exceeds my expectations. Marian made my experience so easy and was available whenever I needed her. She listened to my every need and worked so hard to help me find the perfect house. Even after the sale, she has continued to help me and walk me through anything that I need help with. I would highly recommend her to anyone and everyone looking for a home.

Marian Millard did a superb job helping me navigate the Austin home searching process. I was not familiar with the area, and she sat down with me and we identified neighborhoods that met my criteria. She was available on short notice to look at houses if needed. Also very good at following through on all the details once an offer is made. Very happy with working with her!

Marian Millard was my agent. I have never seen any realtor work so hard for a client. And, she made me feel like I was her only client, even though I know she has others. She gave me great insight to the Texas process of selling, made sure I understood what was going to happen. She gave me ideas and helpful hints to get the house physically ready for the market, and even helped me wash windows. But, the bottom line is the actual bottom line, right? In three days we had many, many showings and multiple offers. The final price was well over asking. She generated interest prior to going on the market, and during those three days, the agents and buyers were lined up on the sidewalk waiting to get into the house. So, I cannot recommend her enough. If I could give her 10 stars, I would.

Marian is every seller's ideal agent. She went above and beyond to sell our home at the best price in the shortest amount of time. She kept us informed of progress frequently, and we always felt that she was on top of everything. I would highly recommend her to anyone selling or buying a home and wish she covered the Florida market where we are trying to sell a condo.

We have dealt with numerous realtors over the years, and Marian is the best of the bunch. We thank her very much for representing us.

We have bought and sold many homes over the years and all at much higher price points. She was better in most every way than all of them. She was so professional, but also personable. She is extremely knowledgeable about real estate law and local trends. Marian sold us on Realty Austin, too, and all the company had to offer. She predicted exactly what she thought the house would sell for. She was right on the money. She spent a lot of her own time getting the house ready to show since we had left the house empty and had left town. She arranged for small repairs and cleaning. The list goes on.

She is a great communicator and always on top of everything. She spent her time well and followed up on every potential buyer. She should be selling multi-million dollar homes, and I'm sure she will! She's very dedicated and a hard worker. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend her to anyone buying or selling their home. She is a winner! We are most satisfied.

Well, I might take up all of the real estate on this review board, raving about Marian Millard! After six apartments in five different cities, my husband and I finally decided to settle down in Austin and search for our first house. It sounded so exciting…until we realized the Austin market is crazy, we knew nothing about the neighborhoods and even less about home ownership. Eeeeep! Enter Marian. With endless knowledge, patience and guidance, Marian kicked off our home search with us in October and lead us on our house hunting journey all the way through February. I can’t tell you how many Saturdays she spent driving my husband and I through different areas of Austin, mapping out zillions of houses to walk through and keeping track of our endless (and mostly impossible) “must have” list. She made our happiness her #1 priority, and we always felt totally at ease throughout the chaos, knowing Marian not only had the reigns but also had our backs. She supported all of our big and small decisions (and there were many!) and helped us talk through the ones we couldn’t quite figure out. I can’t imagine what this process would have been like if I didn’t have a Realtor I could call, text or email at any time of the day, knowing she would be there to help me - whether I needed to talk about mortgage rates or kitchen layouts. :) Marian helped make our house search a home search. And as I sit here in our new home, trying to find all of the right words to describe our incredible first-time-home-buyers-journey, I know that the smile on our faces every time we walk in the front door is the greatest reflection of Marian’s work. We could not recommend working with her more, and cannot thank her enough for all that she did for us!

My wife and I would just like to say how pleased we were working with Marian Millard. From the beginning of our home search, Marian was helpful, patient, and exceptionally knowledgeable about both the Austin real estate market and the buying process. In particular, Marian has a good feel not only for the structure of an individual house, but the physical layout of a neighborhood - soil composition, flood plains, proximity to street noise - all things exceptionally important in Austin. We highly recommend Marian to anyone who's interested in buying a home in Austin.

Marian Millard has been our Realtor for years. Her patience and knowledge cannot be beat. Even when we slowed our search, she stood by us waiting until we found the right home without pressure. She puts her client first over getting the sale and, because of this, I would recommend her to anyone needing a Realtor.

It was an absolute delight to work with Marian. Thoroughly professional, friendly (in fact, she has become one of my closest friends in Austin), and on top of the game! Took away my stress in selling a home while relocating. I would recommend her without hesitation to anyone buying or selling a home. She is a star.

Marian was fantastic to work with throughout the entire process and we would not hesitate to work with her again in a second. She came highly recommended to us by a co-worker at Seton and she exceeded all of our high expectations! She was extremely knowledgeable on the market and worked with us to find a home that was the right home in the right neighborhood for our family.

Throughout the entire process she maintained a positive attitude and made the process fun!

I cannot say enough good things about Marian. I keep several of her cards in my office to recommend her as we recruit new executives to the market. She is a real asset to Realty Austin!

My husband and I have been incredibly impressed with Marian, exemplary doesn't begin to describe the service she has given us. I looked at some condos with Marian when I was visiting from New Jersey in January, just to get an idea of what the market was like. Since then, all of our communication has been via texts, phone calls and emails. As my husband and I went through the process of purchasing a condo, she could not have been more helpful and supportive. We totally trust her ability to assess each property and give us accurate appraisals of the property's condition, appeal, rental opportunity etc. She's knowledgeable, competent, supportive, and able to maintain a sense of humor and perspective through even the most trying moments of real estate transactions. On two occasions, she was willing on very short notice to go look at a property, to help us make a decision about placing a bid. Throughout, she has understood the particular issues of purchasing real estate long-distance, and has been our eyes and ears in Austin beyond anything I could have imagined. It is a total pleasure working with her!

I’ve known Marian a long time and so knew that I could trust her good judgement, good taste, and thoroughness to help me in this very difficult buyers’ market. I had looked on and off with other agents for three years after my home burned down in the Bastrop fires until I decided to work with Marian. She really listened to me and found homes that were always 99%-100% of my taste, so it made the process pretty quick once we buckled down and got serious about the home search. Having lots of trees and a very serene setting was extremely important to me and Marian found just exactly what I had envisioned. I honestly believe I may have found the best deal in the area. And on top of that, Marian helped me find the right lender who was just as thorough as she was and it made all the difference in getting the loan in time.

I sincerely appreciate the combination of professionalism and friendliness that made this as fun as it could be while still fulfilling my goals within my set timeframe. Thank you Marian!

Just can't say enough good stuff about our experience with Marian Millard, but I'll give you the highlights.

1.Takes me a while to figure out exactly what I want. Marian eased me through many (many) options. I never felt pushed or rushed or that she was exasperated by my indecisiveness.

2. She did her homework. Marian knew so much info about the houses she showed us - history, comps, HOAs, area rentals, neighborhood dynamics...even open permits. We were very impressed by her level of preparation.

3. She was honest. We were buying for investment purposes. A couple of times were though "maybe" and she felt like we could find something better. We did - thanks to her.

4. She knows how to negotiate. We came to a standstill with the seller. Marian worked it out. Huge kudos for her skills in this area.

5. She pays attention to detail and kept us on track. What/when to sign, what to pay attention to and what is standard, options available, etc. As mentioned, she's very organized.

6. We trusted her. Her judgement, her insight, her knowledge, her integrity. Bottom line, we look forward to working again with Marian and highly recommend her to anyone looking for a great Realtor.

Marian Millard helped me find a property. She was very professional and knowledgeable. I would definitely recommend her to help you with your home purchase or sale.

First of all, Marian has the patience of a saint! We started working with her quite some time ago when we considered selling our own home. Through a series of events, we decided not to move forward with doing so, and changed our focus in working with her to look for a condo that we could purchase as an investment property that would eventually house my mother in law. So Marian has literally been working with us on identifying the right place for us to purchase for probably over a year!

She has been amazing with communication. She always kept us in the loop about properties as they came onto the market to be sure we could quickly consider them. She met my mother in law many, many times to go through different locations and properties as we considered what we wanted to look for in a condo purchase. And when she heard that a unit was coming on the market that would be a good fit for us, she jumped right on it, and got us in, and was able to quickly make an offer on it.

Marian was fantastic to work with through the whole purchasing process. She communicated with us every step of the way, and spent time educating us on what we needed to know about purchasing a condo since we had not done so before. She would email, text, call and do whatever it took to make sure we got pieces of the process done on time, and helped move things along for us. This was a huge help, as both my husband and I have fairly demanding and time consuming full time jobs, and two little kiddos as well. She was a huge help in keeping us on task to make sure we didn’t miss anything critical.

She also has such a calm, but “get things done” attitude - that she assisted us many times through the purchase process when our lender had turnover, when things didn’t go our way, and all the way through to our closing day. Without her help and guidance, things would have surely gone sideways. We owe it to her that we were able to make the purchase, and now happily own a great condo, in a great location, that will be amazing for my mother in law to occupy.

Lastly, she has continued to check in with us to see how things are going and see how she can help us out. She is amazing! I would definitely recommend her to anyone, and look forward to working with her again in the future.

I can't say enough of nice things about Marian. She was simply awesome, very trustworthy, dependable, thoroughly professional, tenacious, and a fantastic and a persuasive negotiator. I have learned a lot from her professionalism. She got me the dream house I'd always wanted-something hanging over a green belt, with lots of light. She recognized what was important for me and didn't waste time with unnecessary showings. She held my hand through this whole new process as though I was learning to skate on shaky legs, quietly reassuring me through my spells of doomsday prediction. Ok now this is starting to sound too corny but what can I say, three cheers for Marian. She rocks!

My experience with Realty Austin was outstanding. Our Realtor, Marian Millard, was incredible. Everything started off smoothly with our transaction in Austin, then 2 weeks before closing, our lender dropped the ball and everything got really dicey. This is where having a great realtor is really important and pays off. Marian went above and beyond. She contacted our lenders daily and pushed, pushed, pushed. If she had not been so on the ball with her communications I sincerely believe we would have lost this house. On another note, the first house she showed us was the house we ended up buying. We had a long conversation on the phone (she never met me in person) and almost immediately found us the perfect house that wasn't even on the market yet. After this transaction finally came to a successful close, I thanked God I had Marian on my team.

Wow is all is can say! Marian is an amazing Realtor that delivers great results. In particular, she has deep knowledge about Austin real estate, and comes up with creative solutions to win properties in this competitive market. Moreover, Marian is responsive, organized, punctual, and really cares about her clients. For anyone looking for a top notch Austin Realtor, I recommend Marian.

Marian Millard was easily one of the best Realtors I have worked with, displaying a high degree of professionalism and with a high service oriented approach. Not only did she help me with finding a rental home, followed by the ideal home to live in, she also hooked me up with the right contractor, painting and electrical services after the sale- way beyond what I would have expected! She has also become a good friend.

Prathibha Varkey

Marian is the definition of Incredible! My husband and I choose her as our real estate agent as we were searching for a home from out of state. She was diligent in getting us all the available homes and when we scheduled time to come and look for a home she had a 3 day plan in place with all neighborhoods she felt would be the best for value, recommended schools and overall fit for our family. We choose to build and during that process she went weekly to check on the status of our home and sent pictures of each step of the process. She went way above the call of duty and we can't thank her enough for finding us the perfect home! I would recommend Marian to friends, family, colleagues and anyone looking to find their perfect home

Shelley Glick

I knew that trying to buy a house remotely from California in a hot Austin housing market was going to be challenging if not impossible. We needed a real estate agent who would be responsive, aggressive, and easy to work with. Marian was everything we could hope for and more. 

She was very easy to work with in person, over email, or via phone calls. Her responsiveness was outstanding - we would ask her to visit a property we were interested in and within 3 hours she went on site, posted her own photo walk through of the house, and gave us her opinion. When the search grew desperate she pulled out all the stops, contacting other listing agents, reviewing old rental listings for owners who might be interested in selling when the rental term expired, and even offered to go knock on the doors of houses we liked but that weren't on the market. 

Marian at times expressed her opinion that a certain house wasn't right for us, even if that meant us passing on a property to continue the search for the right house. She wasn't just trying to get paid, she wanted us to find the right house. 

In my prior engagement with agents I always questioned the value they brought to the table, with Marian her help was priceless.

Ross Sabolcik

Marian did a fantastic job selling my home in Austin. In addition to staging the house and getting professional photos taken, she coordinated painters, gardeners, and handymen. Marian is smart, personable, and professional, and I'd trust her selling my house all over again - she made the process enjoyable rather than stressful.

Jeremy Hochman

Marian is awesome. She was very patient with our, shall we say, very specific home criteria for over a year to help us find our DREAM HOME in a very tough buyer's market. Professional, personable, and passionate about what she does. If you are looking for an agent, hire her now.

Scott Thomas

When began our move to Austin from the SF Bay Area in 2011, we initially sought Marian's help for finding a temporary rental in which to become better acquainted with the area. She was energetic and knowledgeable about Central Austin's neighborhoods, and was able to help us quickly focus on the areas that would be the best match for us. When we switched gears to buying, she was able to understand the features of the home and location that were most important to us and do a lot of the legwork. We consider ourselves to be a picky pair, but Marian was able to help us find a house that quickly felt like home after moving in.

Julie DiCarlo

Marian did a fantastic job selling our house. Her reliability, integrity, and neighborhood expertise made the process simple, and as painless as I think anyone can make it. I'd be happy to use her services again.

Mark Millard

Marian was recommended to me by a mutual friend, and from day one she went out of her way to make my homebuying experience as quick and painless as possible. She worked patiently and tirelessly to get me into my first home, handling the details practically before they even came up. At every step of the way it was clear that Marian was the hardest working person in the room, and I would not hesitate to recommend her services to anyone seeking a real estate agent.

Tony Hubbard

Marian did an outstanding job selling my house. She provided personalized service, managing the whole process from start to finish smoothly and meticulously. I wanted a fast-track schedule, and she jumped right in and got going. She impressed me with the quality and care that she put into her work, whether it was reviewing documents or coming up with creative ways to make my tiny house look fabulous. It was a pleasure working with her.

Teresa Wilson

Marian was a dream to work with. She understood our needs and pointed us to the perfect house. She wasn't pushy with us but was to the other side and that was great. She was also helpful in providing guidance on what strategies might work and might not as part of the negotiation process. We'd certainly use her again.

Angela Pierce

Marian is awesome! She helped us find the perfect home for our family, which was not an easy task. Our journey had may twists and turns, and she was very creative in helping us find solutions for every new challenge we met. She is very knowledgable and has a keen eye for the potential a home may have. Marian is professional, personable, and eager to help. Truly a pleasure to work with!
