Talk to Marcia Rowley about your real estate goals.

Selling real estate on the North Shore since 1992.
Five Star Professional Award Winner since 2015!

My main goal is to educate buyers and sellers so they are 100% confident with the decisions they make, whether buying or selling. There is so much information on-line today agents need to bring more to the table than just showing properties or taking a listing. Analyzing data for a purchase or designing a specific website for a listing which will draw a buyer in - even before viewing the property - are all tools I bring to the table. Each contract negotiation brings its own unique challenges - and has to be handled as such.

Owning a home may be the single largest investment an individual makes in their life and I am intensely aware of the importance of this item in their portfolio and in the emotional aspect of their lives. I bring hard work, honesty and a real love of what I do to each and every transaction.
