A native of Providence, Rhode Island, Marie received her Bachelor’s Degree from the University of Rhode Island. After moving to Denver, CO, she enlisted in the US Air Force. While enlisted as Medical Laboratory Technician, she completed her Master’s Degree in Management with Troy State University and was ultimately commissioned as a Transportation Officer. Her military career allowed her to live in various parts of the US (Arkansas, California, Florida, Ohio) and Germany, as well as a tour in the Middle East during Operations Desert Shield and Desert Storm. After she and her husband, Terry, retired from the military, they relocated to the Phoenix area in 2001 so that Terry could continue his aviation career.
Marie earned her AZ Real Estate license in early 2002 and her AZ Real Estate Broker’s license in mid-2005.

She is also recognized as a leader in the practice of Online Real Estate and officially certified as an e-PRO, Internet Professional, by the NAR. As a Certified Distressed Property Expert (CDPE), she helps homeowners navigate their choices when they are behind on their mortgage payments and/or they owe more on their mortgage than their home’s present value.
