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.”

Texas Dynasty Ranch
Annona, Texas

About 2.5 hours Northeast of Dallas and 1 hour from Texarkana, this ranch is currently the most extensive landholding being offered in Northeast Texas. The gorgeous 4,034 acres in a pristine and natural state features two-family homes with lush views of the rolling green countryside, dotted with hardwood outcroppings. Specimen oak and pecan trees—many a century or more old—are scattered throughout the acreage.

The ranch presently functions as a first-class Charlois Breeding cattle operation, with a few racehorses being bred. The grazing, hay, and water are abundant and top quality! The seller has a buyer base established and is willing to share with the new owner if desired. The property will easily lend itself to cattle, horses, crops, hunting (lots of game), fishing, or a resort operation. There are manager/tenant quarters, workshop, grain and molasses silos, and dry storage. The grasslands have various native grasses, which the owner has wisely used with a sound grazing rotation system. Currently, the property supports approximately 1500 animals.

Pastures are fenced and cross fenced, multiple working pens are in use, and there is a system to funnel the cattle through push pens to the 60 x 120 working barn with insulated roof, hydraulic squeeze chute, loading ramp, and holding pens. The land is dotted with many lakes and ponds, a deepwater creek runs through, a 7-mile levee, constructed by the Corp of Engineers, runs down one side of the property, and there is an artesian aquifer. Water is not a problem on this ranch! The game is plentiful with a wide variety, including turkey, many ducks, large whitetail deer, hogs, and bobcat. Fishing is abundant, with several 40-pound catfish and buffalo fish being caught recently. Cattle and farm equipment are negotiable. Owner financing possible.

Offered at: $22,000,000.
