Very good at all she did. Job well done.

Chris Midson Claremont Tas.

I wanted to someone who had no judgement about the area i was selling in. I wanted someone who I knew would sell the positives and not turn people off by negative statements about the area,. I needed someone who also believed in the area and it's future. Marilyn sold me 100% on her non judgemental manner and appreciation of people., Nothing else mattered as much as that Marilyn was professional and above all a great non judgemental personality, she was sensitive to my tenants and worked wonderfully with them to get what we needed to get done :)A wonderful service

Friendly and Supportive Even though Marilyn was the vendor's agent, she was really supportive and kept in constant contact with me even after I asked her a million questions. I found her to have integrity and honesty and not pushy. I would not hesitate to recommend her in the future.

Marilyn was pleasant, informative, helpful and understanding at all times. She has been the best agent helping us to sell and buy out of all other previous agents. We highly recommend her for selling houses.

Lynette & Rex, Buyers - Glenorchy

A really wonderful agent Marilyn was really great at understanding what I needed in a property. She knew all the properties that were in the market and was a great sounding board. She recommended I look at the house that I bought and went out of her way to show it to me. She has a great sense of humour and was extremely professional. Would recommend her to anyone.

Pamela, Buyer - Claremont

Exceptional all rounder Right from day one Marilyn's care, attention to detail, communication, advice and guidance has been exceptional and above and beyond expectation. Marilyn had a wealth of local market knowledge and made us feel like we were her only clients. Communication was daily, even when there was no news. We had trust and confidence with Marilyn every step of the way. Marilyn delivered exceptional care and delivered on a fabulous outcome for us. Highly recommended.

Justine & Mark, Vendor - Claremont

My Superstar Agent All in all my experience with Marilyn was fantastic. I have dealt with several agents before going through the purchasing motions and could easily say she has topped the list. She has many qualities but a few that stood out the most to myself that I noticed was she was extremely proactive, easily approachable and most important very responsive. I would definitely recommend for anyone to deal with Marilyn and her team and LJ hooker Glenorchy. Great relationship within the office between the teams and makes purchasing a fun experience for all.

Justin & Chantalle - Buyers, Bridgewater

Marilyn is knowledgeable and professional, she gave us a spot valuation and sold our property within 8 weeks.


Hobart's Best Agent Selling our family home to upsize was the hardest decision we have ever made. We loved our home, and loved it's location and the lifestyle it's location provided being so close to everything, but it simply wasn't big enough. The thought of open homes, awkward inspection times, the maintanance we had to do prior to selling, not to mention the overwhelming stress of moving home with 2 kids and nowhere to go had all delayed our decision for many years. Marilyn Rooney was referred to me by my mum who had recently sold an investment property using her services. After our initial meeting with Marilyn, we felt like a huge weight had been lifted from our shoulders and the whole process of upsizing wasn't going to be as daunting as we thought. Her honest advice, great communication skills and a huge network of contacts enabled her to sell our home in 2 days with an offer we could have only dreamed of. Marilyn made the sale of our family home a smooth, stress free experience and helped us to find our new home by giving us constant updates of suitable properties. We will use Marilyn for any future property we sell and recommend her to anyone looking for an agent who performs well above your expectations.

Patrick & Nicole, Vendor - Glenorchy

Awesome, highly recommended Marilyn was fantastic and made the process easy. As I'm from the mainland I couldn't view the property, Marilyn gave me a detailed description of the property. She made purchasing a breeze. Highly recommend.
