Of the real estate process, Marie says, “There’s nothing like finding a home that fits you. I take so much pleasure in helping clients find the perfect fit for them.” Before working in real estate, Marie spent 10 years as a pediatric physical therapist. “I understand what it means to hold someone’s most delicate possession in your hands. There is a different level of trust and honesty that I so valued then and have carried forward into my real estate career.” A first generation Polish American, Marie absolutely aligns with her hardworking, courageous and resourceful roots by continually exceeding client expectations and making transactions as smooth and seamless as possible.
