Marilyn Hoffman

The one Hundred Million Dollar Realtor

By AP Connolly

Marilyn Hoffman’s expertise in selling extraordinary farms, ranches, and estate properties attracts a clientele that reads like a Who’s Who of business, sports, entertainment, and the social register. Golfer Lee Trevino, a Saudi Prince, sports legend Deion Sanders, transportation secretary Milo Bryant, a billionaire Texas oilman, Horatio Alger member Carl Westcott, cosmetics queen Mary Kay, Merv Griffin, and a major sports team owner have all been her clients.

Marilyn recently made history by listing the most expensive home in Texas, a $100,000,000 property. She also sold one of the largest estates in Texas to the new owners of a major sports team. Her sale of a $9,995,000 penthouse in Dallas was the most expensive penthouse ever sold in Dallas.

Marilyn sold a $13,500,000 estate to the owners of a Scottish castle. Her most recent sale was a $20,000,000 estate that she listed, sold, and closed for full price in 24 days. This 35,000 square foot home was the largest and most expensive sale in the state. This estate was previously listed with another international realtor at a lower price and did not sell.

“Marilyn’s aggressive approach to the international marketing of the property resulted in a completed transaction in five months from start to finish. I’m hasten to add that the prior agencies failed completely to do any effective marketing of Brantley Manor, although I did spend a substantial upfront marketing fee with them.”

Marilyn Hoffman sold this 35,000 sq. ft. $20,000,000 estate for full price in only 24 days. It was previously listed with another international realtor for years unsuccessfully.
