Marney really knew her stuff.

She was knowledgeable and helpful on all aspects of my house buying process. She knew the neighborhood and the market. She was there to do the bidding and helped me know how high to go, increasing the bidding by a set amt to our predetermined limit to win the house. She was there when the engineer walked through with me. Marney went out of her way to make things easy for me. She was so approachable and responsive. Any question I thought of, I texted her and got an answer. She made everything clear to me and pointed out both assets and flaws in my house before the buy. She was cheerful and encouraging. She handled the hand off wonderfully and I always knew she was on my side. Marney covered all the bases, and was always there when I needed her. It was a pleasure to rely on Marney in this stressful house buying market. I recommend her without reservation.

Bobbie Scherer

Marney was absolutely fantastic as a realtor.

Our family had all sorts of complications and delays with moving from the west coast to the east coast and she helped us out through it all, even connecting us with a place to rent while we were searching for the house we would eventually buy. She did not rush us in the process at all; it took us 10 months to find the right place for us. 10/10 cannot recommend her enough. Even the attorney at closing commented on how thorough she was.

Thomas Keeton

I really enjoyed working with Marney to find a house.

She helped me through every step of the process from finding the perfect home to closing. I highly recommend Marney. She is thorough and will provide you with detailed information on each house.

Michael Mattina

Marney has been great to work with.

As a real estate investor you have to get into houses quickly. She is always accommodating and get me in quickly. She has great expertise in the real estate market and market trends. I would recommended her highly to anyone looking to buy or sell their home.

Kevin Briceland (Real estate investor)

Marney Horvath went above and beyond as I purchased my house in Rochester.

Living in New Jersey, I didn’t have the connections for lawyers and contractors- Marney set me up with a lawyer, inspector, plumber, electrician, even carpet cleaners! She worked with my crazy schedule to make sure everything was perfect. I would recommend her as an agent to everyone looking to do any real estate transaction in the Rochester area!!!

Marj Mottola

My husband and I have made multiple house purchases over the years and one of the things we’ve learned is a good real-estate agent is worth their weight in gold.

This real-estate market has been a ridiculous one to put offers in on. We bid on two houses prior to this one and each time Marney patiently walked us through the process and let us know tactfully how confident she was (or wasn’t) in our offer. In the meantime we’re hearing stories from friends of getting offers rejected the 10th, 15th or 20th time. We strategized on the house we bought and managed a winning bid. We overcame issues of being overseas for the closing date, being on an opposite time schedule based on the time zone and managed to close on the house. Normally this would be where your interaction with a real-estate agent might end. But Marney has been helping us out with setting up people to look at the basement so we can finish it, (spending her own time setting people up and walking them through the house). She also came in to the house and found the electric company hadn’t turned on the power like they were supposed to and found 5” of water in the basement (this could’ve been such a nightmare). But she called in all sorts of people to our aid and even spent hours in our basement shop-vacuuming out the water with her husband. She did all this for strangers. You don’t meet people like this often anymore. If there is one real estate agent I can recommend without a second thought it’s Marney. Hire her now or just go with the second best.

Joleen was great in facilitating the sale of my mother's home.

As a first time home seller, Joleen guided me through the process and explained everything thoroughly. She had great suggestions and got us the sale price we were looking for. Although my mother's home is not usual type of properties Joleen lists, she treated is if it was as important to her as any other. She kept in constant contact with us right up until the closing. We would highly recommend Joleen in your sale or purchase.

Pamela Hogenes

Marney did a phenomenal job selling our house.

She guided us through the process and gave us suggestions for putting it on the market. Ultimately we had 5 offers the first weekend! Marney helped us traverse each challenge we faced (and a couple challenges sure came up!) but she was professional and dedicated to selling our house - always staying in communication. We would recommend Marney to our friends and family if they are buying or selling a house. I’d give her more than 5 stars if I could!

Luann Meyer

Marney consistently went above and beyond in my search for a new home.

I moved to the Rochester area from out of state to be closer to my daughter, and really had no idea where to start. It’s been years since I’ve had to go through buying or selling a home. Marney took the time to understand my needs, was incredibly thoughtful in the properties she found and made me feel at ease through the whole process. I really appreciate her local knowledge, and guiding me through purchasing the perfect home for me. I can not recommend her highly enough.

Karen Carnegie Fraser

We bought sight unseen from across the country and Marney did such an amazing job for us.

Against all the odds and hearing nothing but doubt from everyone we had talked to, Marney stepped in and got us everything we wanted. Can’t recommend enough, THANK you Marney!

Victoria Frost

Marney was great and patient.

Was able to get me into showings, even on short notice. She was not pushy and communicating was great and she was quick to respond back. She followed up with lawyers as well to get the closing completed. Would highly recommend Marney for your home buying or selling needs.

Dan Briceland

Joleen was a pleasure to work with.

In this climate of seller’s choice, she worked hard for us - the buyers - to get the home we wanted, and all in a timely manner. It can be cutthroat out there but Joleen’s professionalism and expertise helped us seal the deal! Highly recommended!

Terri Medina (Office professional)

Joleen was great to work with!

She was incredibly responsive and took care of many items on our to do list on our behalf. She was willing to track information down and provided a number of good local recommendations for home-buying-related services.


Marney was incredible through the entire process of buying our new home and selling the previous one.

She was wonderfully patient, and was there for us through the most stressful parts of the process. She was vocal about concerns in prospective properties, but only offered opinions when asked directly. When it came time to sell our house she gave expert advice to get top dollar from the sale. She was highly professional, but incredibly personable. I would 100% recommend Marney to anyone in need of a realtor.

Annemarie Nordquist

From start to finish Marney gave me peace and clarity around the process of buying my first home.

She responded quickly to questions I had, coordinated meetings, always arrived promptly, and offered straightforward options when I was faced difficult decisions. I would recommend Marney to anyone buying a home, and will certainly be reaching out to her again down the road.

David Scherer

As a first time homebuyer I highly recommend working with Marney.

As my realtor, she made me feel informed and comfortable throughout the entire process. I couldn’t be happier with my new home!

Emily Monczynski

Buying a house can be complicated and requires several processes and procedures that need an expert in the business.

Joleen Maltman assisted us in every step of the way! She guided us in negotiating a purchase price to the final bank closing. She is very detailed, adds a lot of value in the process and has great follow up skills. We highly recommend working with Joleen and we are happy homeowners.

Lori Cougle (Director Product Marketing)

Marney was absolutely wonderful to work with!

She was readily available and responsive to all of our questions, was very knowledgable in general about the homes we toured and potential issues that we could encounter with each. She was patient and explained the steps of the home buying process clearly. Would strongly recommend her services!


Marney was a critical player in the success of the purchase of our home.

She has an extensive knowledge of the local market and was able to lean on this experience to help us craft an offer. Our offer was accepted based on how we catered our proposal and not by paying more than the runner up. After our bid was accepted, she referred a lawyer for closing. This made for a smooth and seamless experience from start to finish. Marney was prompt to reply to our list of sporadic questions throughout the process which gave us confidence that we chose the right agent. I can't refer her enough. Thanks for all your help, Marney!

Andrew Yatteau (Founder/COO)

Marney did a fantastic job.

She is very professional and knowledgable. She helped me through the whole home buying process and answered all of my questions in a timely manner. I would recommend her to anyone looking to purchase a home. I don't think I would have been successful in purchasing this home without her.

Eric Willing (Distribution Supervisor)

Marney helped our non-profit navigate a very complicated sale of a residential property that was given to us through a bequest; she was great to work with and can handle anything with calm, timeliness, and precision!

Peter Mottola

This was my first time buying a house.

I was expecting a lot of hassle and pressure and anxiety, but Marney is such a sure hand at this that she made the entire process a joy. She went above and beyond the call of duty on almost every point – if I ever buy another house, she is whom I want to work with.

Theodore Janiszewski

NextHome Resource Realty's Joleen Maltman partnered with me to make my home buying experience excellent!

She took the time to understand my expectations and delivered an enjoyable process that was easy to follow. She is very knowledgeable in the area and a delight to talk with!! She quickly learned what I was looking for and we were able to find my dream home quickly. The whole process was pleasant! I absolutely will recommend Joleen to anyone looking to buy or sell a home! Thank you!

Karen Przepiora

My husband and I have worked with many realtors and I have to say Marney was a fantastic connection!

Our situation is a bit complicated, moving from Tennessee to Rochester for grandkids, yet the timing was up in the air because Jon was not yet retired. She was so patient and flexible with us, even doing a FaceTime showing with us. She answered a lot of questions via email, text, and phone, and was always so kind. We were also very impressed with her knowledge of the area and understanding of our needs. I could not recommend her more—she’s the best!! Thanks so much, Marney!

Claudia Thorndike

Marney is patient and thorough.

She always responds to my questions in very little time. She has connections to loan officers who are also quick to respond so that one can quickly find out if a house is affordable and have a loan in place when it's time to make a bid. Marney showed me many houses before I found the one that suits me perfectly and her manner in working with other realtors or homeowners impressed me each time. I highly recommend her to anyone who is in the market to buy a house in the current housing market.

Bernard J Heveron

We were so lucky to have Joleen by our side in purchasing our first home.

As first time home buyers we didn't know what to expect. Her courtesy, knowledge, professionalism and willingness to provide us with facts, technical details, and answers to our questions and concerns were always present and made the process enjoyable. We went through an unexpected issue with seller and she followed through on every issue, keeping us up to date and moving things along. We couldn't have been more fortunate to have had her as our realtor!

Samantha Lankford

Marney was so responsive, helpful, patient and encouraging.

I was grateful for the expertise she has, she made the process of purchasing our house go smoothly by making sure we understood all the important details.

Beth Powell

Marney Horvath was so helpful to us as we bought our first home!

She scheduled our walkthroughs, guided us through the buying process, kept us updated by text, and made calls to make sure everything was moving along smoothly. We made an offer at asking price, it was accepted, and we closed on the scheduled closing date! Marney was friendly, available, and quick to respond to questions. She made this process less scary and confusing for us. We highly recommend Marney!

Kate Dominguez

Marney was a pleasure to work with.

The housing market has been very competive, especially in the areas I was looking for a home. Marney was patient and encouraging throughout the whole process. Despite the challenging market, she made the process enjoyable and straightfoward, providing her expertise and answering all of the questions I had. I don't know if I would have my home without her help, thank you Marney!

Brian Murphy

Marney was wonderful!

She was responsive, flexible, considerate, and generous with her time. I was able to ask questions and receive a clear response and explanation. I recommend her highly!

Susan Meck

Marney was great!

! She did a lot of the local leg-work as we were buying and relocating from out of state. She helped us navigate a competitive market and was always available to answer questions.

Katherine Fitzsimmons

Marney was a huge help through the process of buying my first home.

She was quick to schedule tours of multiple homes, very responsive to questions by text or phone throughout the buying process, and a fantastic resource for contacts including my mortgage originator and attorney. She was friendly, professional, and very determined to help me find a house - I would highly recommend her services!

Kevin Russell

Marney was fantastic!

She helped us to buy a house in a really challenging market from out of state. She was great to work with, quick and knowledgeable about everything involved. Marney is family-oriented, patient, kind, really smart, and she has great people skills. She even paid for an unexpected garage door repair as we were moving in! You can't find a better real estate pro in Rochester/ Finger Lakes. Highly recommended!

Jonathan Thorndike

Marney was of great help to me buying my first home.

I had no idea of the dynamics required to successfully close a home (given my first time purchase and being out of state!) She helped me secure financing, legal representation, prep negotiation and also helped with all the small things along the way. I’d highly recommend her to anyone!

Steven Michalkow

Joleen was extremely helpful in helping me decide whether to use my townhouse as a rental property or sell it.

Selling was the right choice for me. She did a fabulous job and was able to help me get far more than asking price. I highly recommend her.

Luanne Alcorn

We are so happy that Joleen was our agent in our recent home purchase.

As a first time home buyer, I found the process overwhelming, but she guided us through everything and was a great advocate for us. She was highly responsive and we were able to reach her immediately any time we needed her. Her experience and knowledge was incredibly helpful during the entire process. I highly recommend Joleen!

Alice Costello (Home buyer)

My wife and I used Marney to buy our first home in Rochester.

With how competitive the market is today we were anticipating at least several months of looking prior to finding the right home for us. With Marney’s help we had an offer accepted on the first house we loved in Irondequoit. Marney was extremely thorough and responsive throughout the entire process. I truly believe that Marney’s knowledge of the market and negotiations helped make this possible. My wife and I highly recommend Marney to anybody looking to buy or sell a house.
