Marian began her real estate career in 1989. Marian has listed and sold homes for over 28 years. She is a marketing expert with listings and has an over 95% success rate for selling the listings she takes to market. From her experience and her C.R.S. (Certified Residential Specialist) designation, she also knows how to successfully market a property in today's market to bring potential Buyers to the Sellers front door. She understands that the successful marketing strategies of a year ago are not the ones that work today.
She knows that the internet is the place to market a property to many potential Buyers and has developed a sophisticated system of creating "feeder websites" that bring her listings to many potential Buyers. This system provides her with data driven feedback tools from which her Sellers can make informed strategic decisions. Her attention to detail and execution of successful plans earned Marian an induction into the RE/MAX Hall of Fame in 2010. She is a certified stager holding the A.S.P. (Accredited Staging Specialist) designation.
