On Valentine's Day 1979, Marilyn opened the doors to her very own office and she could not have chosen a better day for a career she loves so much. Though the small firm consisted only of Marilyn and a part-time secretary, the size of the operation was never an issue—quality is always preferred to quantity, Marilyn believes. From early education through parochial schools through graduating Lancaster Catholic High School and attending Franklin and Marshall College, she is Lancastrian through and through. She is also a graduate of the Real Estate Institute and has actively sold commercial, residential and investment properties for over 50 years. She continues to enjoy locating the right business or home for a prospect and shows no signs of slowing anytime soon.
Marilyn Rose has been in real estate for 28 years, which has provided her with a wide range of experience including new home construction, relocation, commercial real estate, and investment properties.
To Marilyn Rose, real estate and her initial career in nursing are very much the same… working with people who are going through a major life change who just need someone to listen to them! It entails either steering them in the right direction or simply standing beside them as a support system in one of the biggest decision making processes life has to offer. She enjoys every facet of the business - meeting new people every day in many different stages of life, exploring the various homes of Lancaster County, the day-to-day problem solving involved in real estate transactions, and representing both sides of the business - buyers and sellers. She would be absolutely honored if you chose her to be your Realtor!
I am a big fan of Lancaster! Growing up in the suburbs and now living in the heart of the city for the last 8 years has given me such an appreciation for all that Lancaster has to offer. With my in depth experience selling new construction and living in and renovating a nearly 140 year old home, I have an equal love and appreciation for new and old homes.
I pride myself on my ability to truly listen to my client's needs and connect them with opportunities that best match those needs. I believe communication is key; therefore I am always reachable, no matter what! I operate on 3 major principles:
Listen to understand, not to reply.
"Strive not to be a success, but rather to be of value." -Albert Einstein
Honesty is always the best policy.

My passion for Real Estate spans decades. My background as a Business Owner and CEO, having built and managed each of the 8 locations (Learning Ladder Child Development Centers) in Lancaster County has allowed me to create lifelong relationships that transfer a high level of experienced leadership into a professional real estate career. I'm an active member in the professional networking real estate group and have earned the CCIM and GRI designations in the real estate industry.
Integrity, honesty along with determination and dedication are philosophies that I strive for in every aspect of my life.
I have loved living and working in Lancaster County since moving here as a young married, soon to be mother in 1976. Over the years, I've had a chance to see all the changes and growth the county. Our first house was in a lovely neighborhood in East Petersburg with sidewalks and caring neighbors. As our family's needs grew, we built a larger home on Country Club Drive in Manheim Township, and finally downsized into our retirement home in the Villas at Bent Creek.
Living, working and volunteering in Lancaster, I've personally seen the growing diversity and the caring within our community has only deepened my love for all that Lancaster County has to offer. Part of our caring community in Lancaster are the many volunteer opportunities available. I actively volunteer for Schreiber Pediatric Rehab Center, ushering at the Fulton Theater, delivering Meal on Wheels, and volunteer activities through my synagogue. Giving back and working for the betterment of the community I live in is important to me. I love showing and sharing with my clients the Lancaster that I know and love.
After working as a Clinical Laboratory Scientist in a hospital setting for over 25 years, then transitioning to a career in Real Estate was going from one caring and helping profession to another. I believe Real Estate is all about caring, listening, and putting your client's needs first.
Fullfilling my promise to always work honestly and in your best interest is what I stand for. I would be honored to work with you and bring your housing needs from dreams to reality.
