Real Estate Professional
Since it inevitably happens to everyone who knows Marion, it seems only right to tell you what they already know, namely, that she is a unique individual. To quote a former client, Marion is “truly one of those remarkable people one feels fortunate to have known.”Marion’s commitment to her clients extends well beyond her entertaining, gregarious personality and tireless efforts. Whether it’s matching clients with the right home or helping them through the selling process with ease and comfort, she is repeatedly described as a woman who loves her work and people, and as one who is not afraid to go the extra mile (literally) to make someone happy. No wonder her proud collection of “thank-you’s” is so extensive.
Awards and Recognitions:
Well-trained, experienced, and incredibly knowledgeable, Marion has been successful from the beginning of her career, earning the New Jersey Association of Realtors’ Million Dollar Sales Club Award her very first year, and in l993 and l996 achieving the Silver level. In 1993 she was the top sales producer in her entire company. Having achieved the status of Million Dollar Sales Club for 10 years or more, Marion was given the New Jersey Distinguished Sales Club Award in 2008. She is a licensed broker, as well as a trained Relocation Counselor, and has completed the rigorous Floyd Wickman “Sweathogs” program.
For three years she was vice president and sales manager of a real estate company handling new construction in Hudson, Ocean, Hunterdon, and Warren counties. A member of the North Central Jersey Board of Realtors, Marion is frequently consulted for her expertise by clients, colleagues, and even a few competitors.
Throughout the years Marion has participated in a host of church, school, community organizations, and activities including Sharing (a church/parent sponsored program for high school students) and had chaired the Junior Class Fashion Show at Ridge High School. She has also performed with the St. James Revue and Trilogy Repertory Company. She is a former president of the Junior Women’s Club of Verona and cultural art representative for Our Lady of the Lake school.

Making a Difference:
A resident of Somerset County since l987, Marion and her husband, Mathias, a licensed psychologist, currently live in Bedminster. She enjoys spending time with her four children and seven grandchildren.
To quote Marion, “when I began my real estate career, I wanted to make a difference, to help make people happy in the place where so many memories are made and so much of their lives unfold: their HOME! Now, after 36 years, I feel I have made a contribution to many individuals and families … most certainly they have for me. Thanks to my real estate career, I have made many friends and met a lot of really wonderful, nice, interesting people.”
