Working with Marlene was an absolute pleasure. She is so realistic and down to earth. My boyfriend and I bought our first home and I'm so thankful we had Marlene to guide us. I work nights and he works days, which made looking for houses extremely difficult.. we were thrilled that Marlene took the time to visit the same house twice in one day so that we each had a chance to see it. She did this numerous times for us. I've never heard of an agent taking the time to do that for their clients! She made the deal a breeze. I would suggest anyone looking to buy/sell to contact Marlene. A class act.
By: Joyce Boyer
Our experience with Marlene and her team was nothing less than phenomenal! Seriously, we were blessed to have Marlene in our lives as we sold our home of 35+ years. She walked us through every step of the process, making our transition much much much easier. Our stress level was greatly reduced because of Marlene. We felt that she truly cared about us. She met our needs and exponentially went above and beyond. We have told all of our friends and family to search no further than Marlene Boyle!
By: S Parmar
Marlene is both a consummate professional and one of the kindest, most thoughtful people I know. She guided us through selling my Mom’s house with a timely, successful sale. Marlene went above and beyond so many times through the process ... she (and her husband Paul) truly acted like my feet on the ground in Bowmanville. I would whole-heartedly recommendation her to anyone buying or selling a home!
By: Bruce Clark
Marlene sold our townhouse in Newcastle. She provides a remarkable combination of professionalism and good old-fashioned caring about her clients. I fully recommend her and her team to anyone looking to buy or sell in Durham Region
By: Gurprakash Bhattal
Marlene is a wonderful and caring person, she is very knowledgeable and helped us at every step of our house selling. She was easily reachable and answered all our questions right away. I would highly recommend her as a realtor.
By: Sarah Doiron
Marlene went above and beyond for us during the sale of our house and our search for our new home. Marlene made selling our house so easy, she handled everything from cleaners to staging to getting it sold within a few days of being listed. Through all the ups and downs and stressful moments she kept me calm and was able to reassure me throughout the entire process. I definitely kept Marlene busy and no matter my sometimes outrageous requests she stuck with me . Marlene kept me on course and always told me the honest truth no matter what. Marlene and her team made the entire process easy and enjoyable and would do it all over again with Marlene!
By: Stephanie B
Marlene sold our acreage in a short amount of time. She also provides extras even though she doesn't have to. Selling a house is a stressful time, so it is nice to have results. Thanks again!
By: M WM
Marlene handled the sale of our condominium recently. We live overseas so hiring a competent real estate agent who could be trusted to be on the ball and to keep us informed in a timely manner was even more important as we could not be there in person for the most part. Marlene was an absolute blessing. She handled everything in a competent and thorough manner making sure that we were kept up to speed throughout the whole process. She took the stress out of what could have been a very stressful time for us. She is professional, personable, competent, reliable, trustworthy, a powerhouse of a person as is her whole staff. We could not have been more pleased to have Marlene as our representative.
By: S Robinson
Marlene was so helpful in our adventure to find a house! As first time home buyers we didnt know what to expect, Marlene made the process so easy and took the stress away from it! We found an amazing home with everything we were looking for! We will recommend Marlene to anyone that is looking to buy or sell!
By: M Hart
Marlene Boyle is an amazing business woman and has a small town mentality on treating people with respect and dignity. I had very tight deadlines in the buying of my house and Marlene was right there beside me the whole time, giving me excellent advice and pointing me in the right directions. Thank you very much for helping me in one of the biggest and best moves in my life.
By: M Penwarden
Marlene is amazing to work with! When my husband and I decided to sell our house she was with us every step of the way with great advice and a positive attitude. She’s very familiar with the area and had great ideas for the best way to list our house. We got way over asking and sold our house within 2 weeks of putting it in the market. I would recommend Marlene Boyle to anyone who’s interested in buying or selling.
By: Fred and Brenda Smith
We found Marlene to be very committed to our needs with both selling our home and finding another for us. She was ALWAYS AVAILABLE at ANYTIME to answer any questions we had. Marlene is very honest and truly does care about us and what we needed. Never did we feel that Marlene was pushy or rushing us into making a decision. We would highly recommend her to anyone wanting a professional, honest and truly caring real estate agent who goes above and beyond for you. A +++++++10 for sure!! Thanks Again Marlene!!
By: Dave Henderson
What can I say? As a third time buyer, this has been the best experience yet! Marlene is an excellent person to work with, and was very patient with my changing ideas of what i wanted/needed to buy. Highly recommended!!! 5 stars all the way!! Thanks again Marlene:)
By: Deane F and Simon W
I can’t say enough kind words about Marlene. I often brag about our amazing real estate agent and my friends who have bought houses always say “oh wow, I wish my real estate agent was that good” or “really?! Your agent did that for you?” My partner and I met Marlene as a seller agent at a condo she was showing. We had started browsing homes a few moths earlier and had met a lot of relators at open houses and property viewings. I knew within 5 minutes of meeting Marlene that we would ask her to be our agent, she really stood out from the rest. In that first meeting we could tell that Marlene loved her job and would put her clients best interest before anything else. Marlene helped us navigate Toronto’s overwhelming real estate world and she did it with kindness, warmth, and lots of patience. Even after we had moved into our new home (which we love!) she continued to connect with us and support us. She went over and beyond anything I had ever expected in an agent. Marlene even thought of us when she came upon items someone was giving away and knew we needed (we were first time home buyers and needed a lot of things!) To top it off she had her husband meet us to drop them off. She is a serious gem. I think back fondly on the search for our first home and the new friend we made in Marlene.
By: Terry R
As my real estate agent recently, ( and I live in British Columbia and the house she sold for me was located in Oshawa Ontario) I would like to thank Marlene Boyle for her committed help, her diligence, promptness, professionalism and friendship in dealing with this sale. I felt like she was ready to act on my behalf at any time, day or night. She made me feel like I was the most important client on her list of many. Her recommendations in the sale of this house were always well accepted and her assistance in staging the house, whether it be to pick up the mail, move things around or dispose of certain items were appreciated. Marlene is a very honest, trustworthy and hard working real estate agent and I would recommend her without hesitation.
By: Wright Family
It is just over a year since we bought and sold our home with Marlene Boyle. We were thoroughly impressed from start to finish. Right from the first few calls to Marlene with questions she was always honest and available. When she would say call me anytime we soon learned she truly meant that. Always quick to return our texts, emails and phone calls even if it was late at night. We also soon learned Marlene truly feels her clients are more than just customers. Marlene truly cared about us as people and wanted to make sure our process was smooth and we were happy with the outcomes. She never wanted us to stress about the process and made us feel assured that everything would work out well. Marlene was always making sure we were confident with how things were progressing and always on top of things if we had any questions or concerns. She always kept us up to date as soon as she knew anything about the sale or the buying. She made us feel valued in the whole process. Our needs were very important to her and she made sure we understood that they came first. We always knew we could trust her and that she wanted us to be happy with whatever the outcomes were. Marlene made sure the home we were buying was right for us and our situation. She never rushed us and always spoke the truth about the situation. Our situation ended up that we sold our home before we had bought another and Marlene went above and beyond trying to find us a home. She worked for us and was out there doing everything she could to find us that home. She always went the extra steps needed and more. Even after the transactions were over Marlene has made sure to check in and make sure all is well. We sincerely thank Marlene for all she did for us and we would highly recommend Marlene to anyone who is thinking of buying or selling. Friendly, passionate about the business, caring, available, eager to help, thoughtful and most importantly honest……….these are just some of the thoughts that come to our head right away when thinking about Marlene.
By: Karin R
I cannot speak highly enough of Marlene and could never run out of good things to say about her. Marlene is dedicated to her profession, she is devoted to her client. Marlene was always punctual, articulate and was able to provide great advice and insight on any questions or concerns I presented to her. Above all, Marlene was professional on every level. I have since referred her to other family members and they have had similar experiences with her and were very impressed as well. If you are looking for a dedicated, professional real estate agent you can’t go wrong with Marlene!
By: B Robb
As a real estate agent Marlene Boyle is one the most efficient,reliable,and pleasant people I have had the pleasure of working with. She took the time to go over everything with me and help me to understand the paperwork I was signing. She made herself available when I needed her. Marlene made me feel that she was acting in my best interest and made me feel that I had just met a new friend. I would recommend her to anyone who is thinking of listing their home to sell or to those who are looking for that ideal home. I know I have said it before but, Thank You for all you did.
By: S Glazier
Marlene is way more than an agent. She is an agent with a heart! Very hard to find. She was there for me during the sale and long after. I trusted her to help me start over again and she was priceless to me all the way! I could talk about how wonderful she is as an agent but what is more important is that she is a wonderfully honest person first! You were an agent I put my trust in and I have never regretted it! Thank you for your invaluable guidance and wonderful sale.
By: G Malley and C Fernandez
We met Marlene at an open house when we were considering selling our home in Toronto and moving to Bowmanville. Marlene worked with us tirelessly for months looking for the perfect home in Bowmanville. We thought we had found it in on a least three occasions, however, since the sale of our property in Toronto kept falling through, so did the purchases. Marlene was with us on numerous occasions until late in the night, waiting for confirmation of the deal. As we were travelling to Bowmanville from Toronto, after work, sometimes two or three times a week, late nights were a common occurrence and it was never any bother for Marlene to be writing up offers late at night. We highly valued Marlene’s opinion and advice as she guided us not only through the purchase but really through the sale as well. We often commented on the late night drive back to Toronto, how patient Marlene was and how much we just appreciated working with her. Without Marlene our dream house and living in our dream town would not of been a reality. She has continued to assist us with references for trades people, community events etc. We would not for one second hesitate to refer her to anyone. We love Marlene!!!
By: Dave and Katey R
Working with Marlene was amazing! She made our first home buying experience so easy and comforting. It was fantastic having her help us every step of the way! Thanks again for everything!
By: John and Valerie Offinga
Extremely pleased with the entire selling process with Marlene. Right off the bat, Marlene was friendly, respectful and understanding of our difficult situation. Marlene was refreshingly honest, confident in her work ethic and quick to respond to any questions or concerns. Please don’t waste your time, and call Marlene for the job to be done properly and efficiently. Thanks so much for your work, Marlene, but also for listening when I needed an ear. Cheers!
By: Lyndsay and Ian W
We interviewed several agents to list our house and help us buy another and we knew right away that Marlene was the one we wanted to work with. She gives off a vibe that make you feel at ease and that she was looking out for our best interests as opposed to an agent looking for a quick sale. She was very familiar with the area and what we can expect with a rural home sale. She explained in detail what she would do to help us sell. We got exactly what we had hoped for in terms of the sale of our house, which was great! Marlene was ALWAYS available to show us new homes as well. She helped us through the hard time of loosing a house we absolutely loved to a holding offer multiple offer situation which was quite devastating to a few weeks later helping us through the same situation in which we had the accepted offer. What a roller coaster. We could not have done that without Marlene! Highly recommend Marlene to anyone selling. Agent of our dreams and possibly yours too! Not very often one can say hey… my agent is now my friend….but I can. Thanks Marlene!
By: Genny L
We met Marlene driving by a home with a for sale sign in a neighborhood we were considering moving to. We wanted to see the house but we didn’t have a real estate agent yet because we were still in the early stages of purchasing. She was with her clients so she wasn’t able to show us the house right away. We exchanged phone numbers and she arranged for us to see the house about 45 mins later. That was impressive!!! We didn’t expect such flexibility in someone whom we only met 45mins ago. This was the start of our partnership and this showed us her commitment to her clients. Marlene completed the walkthrough with us . My husband and I discussed how the house was move in ready but not quite the right fit for us. Before we discussed anything with Marlene she gave us her opinion of the home….it was exactly what we were feeling. The house was a little small for a family of four with 2 kids under the age of 10. Right away she offered to start looking at houses for us. At the time we were living in Toronto so we were limited in the number of visits we could make to Oshawa. She offered to complete the initial walkthrough’s and only show us the houses what she feels would be a good fit. We saw about 10+ houses but when we walked in to our current home, she knew as we knew, that it was the perfect fit. Seeing as many houses as we did, we never felt pressure to settle on a house….we never felt like we were just one of her many clients…she gave us sound advise…and she was always available. Never have I had to wait on a response to a text or email….didn’t matter the time of day. I would highly recommend her services to anyone. Thank you again Marlene!!! We love our home.
By: Justin & Kayla
Marlene was a great real estate agent to have as she helped us with everything we needed to know being new home owners. She made the processes so pleasent and enjoyable. She was very approachable and went above and beyond our expectations in finding our first home. We highly recommend Marlene and won’t hesitate to request her help in the future.
By: Jackie R
Marlene will not sell you a house if she doesn’t feel that it is PERFECT for you!!!! She painstakingly worked with me for months in order to find the perfect home, and guess what? She did it!!! She never tried to talk me into a quick sale and I felt that she had only my best interest at heart. Thanks very much, Marlene.
By: C Hocking
We had told Marlene that we would be taking our time and would only buy if it was exactly what we were looking for. We would not settle as we had last time (we were much younger and different realtor). We looked at every type of home from country to brand new. Marlene who grew to our our taste was the one who suggested we look at the house we ended up buying. We did not have any interest in this area until we saw it. Was perfect for us. It all happened easily and I knew was meant to be for our family. Very happy. Marlene was always accessible missing much family time for us and all her clients. Will recommend her in a heart beat!
By: Toby and Elisabeth L.
While our newborn twins were the reason for our move, they also made the process very challenging! It was important for us to find an agent who could meet our needs, and Marlene fit the bill. She was flexible, friendly, knowledgeable, and made us comfortable as second time buyers. She would respond to late night texts, schedule viewings at a moments notice, and even ended up rocking or feeding the twins so that we could view a property in peace. With her honest feedback (pointing out aspects of a house that wouldn’t work for us) and calm persistence, we found the house that fit each of our family’s requirements and we won the bidding war to get it! As for selling our house, after staging, advertising and hosting an open house, it was sold over asking in just a weekend, perfect for us with three children. We would highly recommend Marlene to any prospective buyers or sellers. She continues to look out for us even after the deals are done. Thank you, Marlene!
By: Becky G
Nothing but top marks for Marlene. This was our 5th sale and we had only ever dealt with a ‘lower commission’ real estate agency before and boy I sure noticed the difference going with Marlene from Remax. She always answered our texts and phone calls promptly and was available to take us to see houses whenever we wanted. She went the extra mile to ensure a quick sale and we ended up selling our home in 4 days over asking with a firm offer. She explained everything clearly and helped us with all our questions as we bought a more rural type property which was all new to us. We couldn’t have had a smoother and better experience and would highly recommend her.
By: Stew and Shirley S

Anyone looking to sell or buy a home I would recommend Marlene Always a friend Stew and Shirley S
By: W Kwong
I couldn’t have found a better sales agent. Marlene Boyle is great sales agent. Marlene works very hard and she delivers. We met on March 04 and the next day we were viewing homes. With Marlene’s advise & help we bought our home on March 08. This is great performance, Marlene truly is a very dear friend other than my sales agent.
By: rene Lilly and Eugene Ross
Thank you Marlene for taking the time with us, it was a long journey and you stuck in there when I was ready to quit. We have moved into the house now and are loving it. I didn’t think the day would ever come that I would ever say that I finally own a house and its all thanks to you ?? Also wanted to thank Nicole for all your help I know you are always behind the scenes but I know you do a lot. Thank you for all the information you sent to us to make everything go easy. You guys are a great team and I would recommend you to anybody looking. Thanks again!!
By: Lori G
Kelly and I cannot thank Marlene enough for helping us find our dream home! Her honesty and love for the job shines through. Thank you.
By: Karin and Brent
Would just like to take a minute to send a big THANK YOU to Marlene Boyle for the wonderful job she did selling my home. Marlene was friendly, helpful, patient, knowledgeable professional and courteous during the entire process! I had to be out of the province for part of the time that my house was on the market. However, Marlene even handled that challenge in a very efficient and organized way! This is not the first time I have worked with Marlene while buying or selling a property…I have been thoroughly impressed every time and continue to go back! Marlene is always a pleasure to work with…if anyone is in need of a FANTASTIC real estate agent, we would highly recommend Marlene Boyle! Many thanks!
By: Joe & Karen Falzon
We have had more than a two year association with Marlene. Most of that time she spent investigating a number of properties for us in the Durham region. Throughout this entire process Marlene was always obliging,cooperative and encouraging. Finally in August we closed a deal in Whitby, a beautiful Condo that we had been admiring for several months. Thanks again Marlene for not only your help but patience and tolerance under such stressful conditions.
By: BILL & GLENDA W.
How fortunate we were to have had Marlene as our real estate agent. She kept us up to date on new listings as soon as they were listed which was extremely important to us in a hot market. She was extremely prompt at arranging viewings. We never felt pressured into making decisions on purchasing a new home. She was very helpful at pointing out good and bad features of each property viewed. She was so patient with us as we tried to come to a purchase decision. She was more of a close friend than a real estate agent. We highly recommend Marlene as an efficient, courteous and professional agent.
By: Joe and Dalia Jesus
We met Marlene in the fall at an open house in Bowmanville and right there she took the time to give us all the listings , even though we told her that we were just starting to look and wanted to downsize , and were not ready to do anything until the spring. We wanted to move from Ajax to Bowmanville and Marlene was great always responded to my texts in minutes. It was never to late for her to be on the phone to answer questions. Moving from a big place and wanting to dowsize Marlene knew what to find for us . Thanks Marlene for finding us our beautiful place it felt like home from the moment we walk in the front door . We would highly recomend Marlene to anyone that needs an agent . Thanks Marlene
By: Kerry & Malcolm
Marlene is a fantastic real estate agent, she was able to help us find a home in the area we were looking and in our price range. She took us to multiple properties and when we were starting to think we may not find what we were looking for Marlene told us to keep our heads up and not to worry and she was right. She answered every call, text and email that we sent and always answered all of our questions. Marlene is great at what she does and we have made sure to tell all of our friends about her in the event they may be looking to buy or sell a home. Thank you Marlene for taking such good care of us! ??
By: Pat Armstrong
Thank you Marlene for all your patience. Leaving my home of 43 years was not an easy decision to make. You are such a positive out going person it was an enjoyable experience. I love my new house, and I hope you will drop in any time you are in the area.
By: Darcy and Lynn
Thank you, thank you, thank you. Marlene was unbelievable for our sale and purchase. She took the time needed to ensure that we had everything we required to ensure a quick sale. She was always available for questions and provided answers quickly. When it came time for our purchase she made the time and had all of the information at her fingertips with regards to the homes we were visiting. All in all great service and experience. Thank you
By: Helen and Greg
Marlene what can we say but Thank you , Thank you. We have known Marlene since she was a little girl and her hard work ethics and commitment have only increased with her age. Her commitment to selling our house was 100% at all times. She does a fabulous job in staging and promoting your house with her dedicated team. Our house sold in 4 days and we are sure it is due to Marlene’s hard work ethics. We would recommend Marlene to sell or find you a place 100%. Thank you again Marlene!
By: Kory K
I am so grateful to Marlene and her wonderful team for their superior representation with the sale of my house. Their professionalism and kindness ensured that everything went smoothly and was as stress free as possible. I highly recommended Marlene to others; she is a fantastic agent and a great person!!!!!
By: Yvonne H
Marlene was very helpful through every stage of the home purchasing process, in a time when the market was unstable. She had a thorough knowledge of the area and value of a home. She was very flexible and made time in her schedule to help or answer any questions I had.
By: Mike & Judy
We had the pleasure of meeting Marlene at an open house she was hosting. The house wasn’t exactly what we were looking for but she took our names, email address and some information about the type of house we were looking for so that she could send us info on new listings as they were posted. Within the day we were receiving the promised emails this was our first indication of the caring and committed person that Marlene is. We had been to numerous open houses and left our info with other agents but Marlene was the only one who actually followed thru, needless to say it was an easy choice for us to have Marlene as our agent. The search for our “forever” home was a long journey but the trip was made easier because of this choice. Marlene and Nicole were always available either by email, text or phone to answer any questions we may have had and trust me we had a few having not bought or sold a home in over twenty years. Trying to find a home in a hot market where you were competing against numerous buyers can be overwhelming but Marlene’s guidance and experience helped us navigate our way seamlessly. She truly will help you to find the house that is perfect for you! Thank you once again Marlene for all that you are and all that you do it is greatly appreciated!!
By: Joey & Nadine W.
Marlene was absolutely phenomenal!! As first time home buyers you don’t know what to expect who to listen too or where to even start. Marlene made the experience pleasant and eased our nerves. She gave sound advice, and was extremely knowledgeable of the area, she was beyond flexible actually one of the most flexible people we’ve ever met. So glad my colleague referred her as we couldn’t have been in better hands. I would definitely rate her and her fantastic team 5 stars! I would recommend her to anyone who wants some One who is attentive, considerate and has a true passion for what she does.!! Thanks again Marlene we truly appreciate everything you’ve done during and after the process.
By: Shannon & Nadia Tkachenko-Power
Marlene & Staff were both wonderful and excellent to deal with. Very helpful in both the purchase and sale of our property. Marlene definitely went out of her way to help in any way she would. Was there more then we ever expected. I would recommend and use both her and Re/Max Jazz again and again…. Thank You so Much !!! A+ service
By: Brenda and Don
We can’t speak highly enough of our experience with Marlene and her team. My husband and I knew that selling our home would be an exciting time for us, yet stressful and emotional. Marlene was with us every step of the way. Communication was always timely and professional. Marlene answered any questions we had during the process. Our home sold quickly. After closing we are still in contact with Marlene as we consider her our friend. Thank you!
By: Jane and Jeff N
We feel Marlene did an amazing job in selling our home. Marlene was very professional, reliable and trustworthy. Marlene spared no expenses in selling our home by utilizing a first class stager, produced an amazing brochure and video of our home, and provided advertising in the paper and magazines, Marlene always returned our calls promptly and was very supportive We were uncertain about selling our home and Marlene made the whole process stress free. We are very glad that we decided to use Marlene as our selling agent and strongly recommend her to anyone thinking of buying or selling.
By: Kedar Nelson
Marlene is the best, simple as that. I found her to be very enthusiastic and hard working for me finding my home. She was very informing and was there anytime I needed her or had any questions. This was my first home and she made it so easy for me. She was so patient and professional. I would recommend her to anybody. Marlene help me to find a home that I love and on top of all that she is just the nicest person. I will never need another realtor she will be my go to everytime.
By: Jenn and Chris
Thank you so much Marlene! I don’t even know where to start. Your an amazing real estate agent. Professional, organized,on top of everything. You surround yourself with the best and it shows in everything you do. Not only did our house look amazing from the staging. But between You and Nicole every little thing is taken care of. Selling and buying can be such a stressful time and you made sure we were informed every step of the way.. even if that meant me needing something late at night. You as a person is overwhelming. The kindness you show in everything you do is touching. We were so happy with you even before we knew you help support local hospitals and children. You are much more then just a real estate agent. You are an inspiring woman and I am beyond grateful for all you have done.
By: Jim and Allana
Marlene is the guardian angel for buyers and sellers. She is with you at every step in the process. She works tirelessly to find you a new home or sell the one you currently have. Every thing from staging, photos,cleaning is looked after. Her knowledge of the market is amazing. She is able to listen and turn the dreams into reality. We have moved many times and have never seen such service , dedication and generosity of spirit that Marlene displays. Truly , she is the best agent ever!!!!
By: Korol S
Marlene is great. She far exceeded our expectations with our house selling. We have had very bad experiences with agents in the past so were a little nervous with Marlene. Rest assured she was the best and we would recommend her in the future.
By: Shirley Van De Ven
I am very happy with Marlene and her team. They were very helpful and had lots of great suggestions about staging my house. They were friendly and easy to talk to and always very professional. I would recommend them highly.
By: A Swift
Marlene is one of a kind. She always makes you feel like you are her top priority. Her services go beyond your expectations. We will highly recommend her to friends and family.
By: Onil and Karen
Marlene isn’t afraid to get her hands dirty. Our house was on the market during a down-turn and she kept reassessing changes that would attract the right buyer. It didn’t matter whether that constituted getting someone in to make a change or taking the lead (re-staging) the home. In the end our house sold for a fair price. Efficient, professional and to the point – you can’t possibly go wrong with Marlene.
