Marilyn Goldner


Marilyn’s Real Estate career began in 1979 when she first moved to Austin. She fell in love with the city and decided to make real estate her profession so she could show others all that Austin has to offer. Marilyn has an extensive knowledge of the city’s neighborhoods because she has seen Austin grow from its early stages. She has worked tirelessly with both buyers and sellers offering the most professional service, always putting her clients’ needs and demands first. The most important thing for Marilyn is to have satisfied clients.

With more than twenty years of experience as a Realtor and a background in marketing and advertising, Marilyn is an ideal choice for anyone looking to buy or sell a home. Not only does she have a keen eye for design and a thorough understanding of the Austin market, but Marilyn also listens closely to her clients and focuses her attention on what is important to them. Her strong communication skills, patience and commitment to your personal wishes make her the perfect choice for a smooth real estate transaction.

I had an excellent experience working with Marilyn. She is very knowledgeable, competent, and pleasant to work with. She started communicating with me by phone and email before I moved to Austin so she could understand my needs and desires and help me understand the Austin market.

Once I moved to Austin, Marilyn helped me to target our search so I would find a property that was right for me. We spent many hours looking at houses, and she was always informed about the properties we toured, generous with her time, and patient when I wanted to linger or to see a property more than once. She advised me when her expertise was needed or when I asked for her opinion, but her focus was always primarily on me making decisions based on what I wanted in a home.

We did find a house that I wanted, and Marilyn expertly led me through the processes and paperwork to a successful closing. I am very happy with my entire house-hunting experience. Marilyn is a true asset to Realty Austin!

Marilyn is the best! As I've said before, she's "golden" smart and knowledgeable. She has a great memory and has kept us out of trouble, besides saving us money. We have recommended her to acquaintances looking for real estate.

Marilyn Goldner was my real estate agent, and I'm very fortunate to have found her. She is a consummate professional. She is knowledgeable about the vagaries of Austin real estate. She was very perceptive in narrowing down my preferences and exceptionally patient in understanding my many changes of mind as to needs and wants. I wholeheartedly will recommend her to any friends and acquaintances. She is a superb Realtor.

Marilyn Goldner was a delight to work with. From our very first phone call, she was professional, helpful, and knowledgeable. Once we started looking at homes, her energy and enthusiasm were tireless. She showed us dozens of homes at different price points and allowed the houses to come to us. She was always ready with advice when asked, but never pushed anything. She was always sensitive to our price range and never attempted an up-sell. We would work with her again in a heartbeat and feel lucky to have found her. Realty Austin provided her with the facilities and infrastructure she needed to be the wonderful Realtor she is.

I cannot say enough good things about working with Marilyn. Not only did she find us our dream house but she was extremely diligent, paid attention to every little detail (she even helped us review our closing costs and found a couple of mistakes that saved us money), and was on top of the communication with the seller immediately every step of the way. Her experience shows as she has a great eye for houses (I know I mentioned it above, but it's worth reiterating that she listened to our needs and truly did find our dream house!) and she will give you her honest thoughts, which we greatly appreciated. She truly looks out for the best interests of her client. She made herself available anytime that we needed her and I can say with the utmost confidence that I trust Marilyn and wouldn't use any other Realtor in Austin. She is simply the best!

Marilyn was "Golden" as far we are concerned! She was patient, hard-working, vigilant, has a good sense of humor, (which helps) and very knowledgeable of homes and condos in all of Austin area. We will be using her again, early next year; double Marilyn's commissions immediately!

My experience working with Marilyn was absolutely wonderful! I was searching for houses in Austin from out-of-state, and Marilyn did a diligent job making sure she clearly understood exactly what I was looking for. She represented me very well and made sure I did not miss out on any house that could potentially fit my needs. Marilyn handled a lot of the process for me (driving through neighborhoods, checking out open houses, etc.) while I was miles away. I appreciate Marilyn's candor and fully trusted her expertise. Thanks to Marilyn, I purchased the most perfect home. I would absolutely love to work with her again!

There are really no words to describe how amazing our experience was with Marilyn. She was organized, educational, kind, direct, and truly made the home-buying process a breeze.

Being a first-time homebuyer, it can be scary and we didn't really know exactly what we want. Marilyn was patient and communicative along every step of the way and helped us make sure we were thinking of the right things about properties that I would have overlooked or let my emotions get the best of me. She helped us think outside the box and look at homes we would have never looked at to help us find our dream home.

I have already recommended Marilyn to people and would recommend Marilyn in a heartbeat for anyone looking to buy a home in Austin. She is absolutely fantastic and anyone that works with Marilyn is very lucky. We feel so lucky to have such an ally along this process and cannot thank her enough.

Can you believe Marilyn helped me purchase this home in 1981? We've been friends ever since but I have to say this experience challenged us to the core. Marilyn described it as "walking through mud." It certainly was an up and down experience; for months. Marilyn's patience with everyone involved (especially me) was exemplary. She willingly waded through the contract by answering all of my questions and added anything that could be possibly be misconstrued in the future. Experience matters. She was always there for me and "them" (buyers, Realtors, lenders, title co, etc.), even when they did not return phone calls and, hard to believe, left the country without notifying her! Marilyn made it happen.

I’m convinced Marilyn is one of the best Realtors in the city. Not only does she know the Austin market inside and out, but she also answered every question I had thoroughly and promptly. She took me to every house I wanted to see and truly fought for me throughout the entire process. Marilyn always made me feel like I had her full attention and really listened to what I wanted. In addition to her skills and experience, I honestly believe she has a sixth sense – she knew my house was “the one” immediately, even before I did. It has been a pleasure to work with her, and I couldn’t have been happier with my experience!

It was a pleasure to work with Marilyn. She definitely went above and beyond all my expectations. Marilyn's knowledge and guidance made my experience with selling my home of 27 years easier than expected for me which was truly a blessing. I am grateful that I had Marilyn as my Realtor. I would recommend Marilyn to my family and friends.

Marilyn was amazing to work with. She was extremely quick at responding to any questions and concerns I had about buying my first house and couldn’t have been more professional. She made me feel optimistic and confident in my decision instead of what could have easily been a stressful one.

The main quality I take away from working with Marilyn is her trustworthiness. When making one of the biggest decisions I will ever make, I refuse to work with someone I can’t fully trust and I had NO DOUBT she was being 100% honest with me throughout the entire process. When she didn’t like a house or thought it was overpriced she would tell me even if my first reaction was different from hers. She knew my budget, the kind of house, and the area I was looking for and somehow found the PERFECT house and acted quickly on it. I’m convinced if I didn’t have her as my realtor, I wouldn’t have ended up with the house I was fortunate enough to close on.

I’ll be sure to refer her to all of my friends looking to be first-time homeowners!

Marilyn Goldner recently represented me in buying a condo. She is an outstanding realtor and I highly recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell real estate. My experience in buying the condo lead me to greatly appreciate her knowledge of the real estate market, professionalism, thoroughness, and courtesy.

From the beginning of the process, she helped me analyze the pros and cons of various properties. When I decided upon a condo, she skillfully reviewed the comps and helped me determine a fair price to offer. She was available to accommodate my viewing the property multiple times.

After the inspection, she helped me evaluate repairs that could be done and even helped locate service providers to give bids on potential repairs. She helped me decide on a repair allowance to request from the sellers.

Each time a question or issue arose about the property, Marilyn responded immediately and was able to answer the question or track down the needed information.

When I had doubts about the big changes that come with moving, and whether the condo was going to work for me, she was patient and ready to continue to look at alternate properties.

During the many viewings of the property and the inspection, she was outgoing and graciously introduced me to several neighbors, which was invaluable in making me feel comfortable with my choice.

She was thorough in dealing with the closing and followed up with the title company when they did not respond to a question regarding funding.

In short, Marilyn supported me in each aspect of the purchase and made the buying process pleasant and fun!

We would like to take this opportunity to share our experience with Marilyn Goldner.  Marilyn did more than exceed our expectations! She gave our family personalized service right from the beginning, and treated us as if we were her only clients every step of the process.  Her wealth of knowledge centered in our home buying process helped us make the best decisions every step in the process. She never rushed us to choose a home even though we probably looked at over 30 homes, and she was always ready to answer our questions. Her patience, knowledge,  and professionalism made our first time buying a home an easy process. We have already been recommending her and raving about our great experience! We are truly grateful and blessed to have had Marilyn helping us find our beautiful home!

We are very fortunate to have met Marilyn Goldner in 2010 when we purchased our condo in Austin. She was also very active over the past six years in helping us find tenants for the property. And we recently sold the property with Marilyn's help. She is extremely professional, very thorough in her work and has a deep understanding of what it takes to successfully buy and sell property. Marilyn is pleasant to work with, has a wide network of contacts in the industry and communicates well. We hope we will have a chance to work with her again!

Marilyn Goldner was recommended to us by a friend. She was amazing! She helped us find our first home and we couldn't be happier. She was there for us through all the ups and downs day or night. She was an amazing Realtor and we truly felt like she was our advocate during this incredibly stressful time. And now, thanks to her, we are home owners. Highly recommended!

Marilyn is a savvy real estate professional who can be trusted to do the right thing. She is a wonderful listener who takes the time to understand her clients' needs and she has the maturity, experience and professionalism to work through issues. I bought my first house through Marilyn in the 80's and still rely on her expertise today.

Marilyn was great! She showed me 35+ houses, if not more, within 2-3 months and acted like each one was the first. She didn't get annoyed, bored, frustrated during the process (like I did at times, due to it being my first time). She answered all my questions to the best of her knowledge.

I was happy with the whole process and really happy with my new house!

I cannot say enough good things about Marilyn! My husband and I were given Marilyn's name when we first were relocating to Austin in April 2014. She helped us find a short term rental in the Austin area. We didn't have time to fly out to Austin to look at properties. She did all the leg work for us! She would visit properties, take additional pictures, give her honest opinion about different places. It was great!

We enjoyed working with her so much that when it was time to buy a house we knew she would be our realtor. Marilyn spent numerous hours in the car with Dean and I showing us different neighborhoods. She set up a automatic search that was super helpful and allowed me to quickly understand the Austin market. We found the house and Marilyn helped us quickly close the deal. Her knowledge of the Austin market is great.

When we found out we were moving to Dallas and needed to sell the house, we knew we wanted Marilyn to sell the house she had helped us buy. We were out of town for our wedding and she had been scheduling open houses and on Mothers Day she quickly found a strong buyer for our house. The house was on the market for 20 days. We also were able to sell the house at the highest price in the neighborhood. Marilyn is the realtor i have been recommending to anyone I know that is relocating to the Austin Area!

Marilyn Goldner was absolutely fantastic from the time she helped me price the house to the ultimate closing. She actually sold me this house seven years ago and she had sold that seller the house over 30 years before; she definitely instills loyalty in her clients! She is so professional and knowledgeable about the Austin market plus she is calm and always maintains her wry sense of humor. Our deal had many ups and downs but she persevered to get me the best price from the right buyer. I will continue to refer her to my friends and family because she does an outstanding job.
