Marilyn grew up in New Mexico took Business and Finances courses in college and her first Professional Job was in Banking where she received several Customer Service awards. Her last position before becoming a real estate agent was as a Loan Officer. Marilyn worked for 5 years in Las Vegas, helping to manage over 500 residential units. She is a real estate broker in North Carolina where she worked with Weichert Realtors. For Six years she has been licensed in Florida and serves all of Highlands County as an agent for Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Florida Properties Group.

Marilyn likes being a property manager and sales associate because she likes helping people, whether it is an Investor looking to build his portfolio or helping a young couple get their first apartment or house. Since Hurricane Irma she has assembled a group of craftsman to complete minor and major repairs in a cost effective way for her investors. This has been a difficult year to be a property manager, landlord or tenant in one of the hardest hit counties in Florida.

Marilyn loves with her very spoiled dog Smudgy who accompanies her in her work travels. Marilyn enjoys time with her daughter and 3 granddaughters and in her spare time golfs, fishes and reads. Marilyn gives back to her community through her membership in the Lake Placid Women's Junior Club and the Elks.

Lake Placid Area Information

The town has two nicknames: "Town of Murals" and "The Caladium Capital of the World". Lake Placid has more than 40 murals painted on buildings throughout the town and 98 percent of the world's caladium bulbs come from Lake Placid. Lake Placid, which was formerly called "Lake Stearns", was chartered on December 1, 1925. Dr. Melvil Dewey, the inventor of the Dewey Decimal System, and the founder of the Lake Placid Club in Lake Placid, New York, proposed that Lake Stearns change its name to "Lake Placid". On April 29, 1927, the Lake Stearns Commissioners accepted Dr. Dewey's proposal. Subsequently, they submitted a request to the Florida State Legislature. On June 6, 1927, the community was chartered as the town of Lake Placid. See More... http://www.lpfla.com/
