Marshall’s Real Estate Journey

Swoosh

1. What was life like before becoming a Realtor?

I grew up in north-central Oregon, in a small town on the Columbia River with the strange name of The Dalles. I have a bachelor’s degree in political science from the University of Oregon and spent eight winters working in the oil fields in arctic Alaska. Prior to getting into real estate, I worked over 10 years as a carpenter doing residential remodeling. But the most rewarding work of my journey was the six years I spent as a stay-at-home dad. Priceless.

2. What do you love most about residential real estate?

It’s the people. We meet all kinds of folks in this business, and many have become good friends. Helping buyers, especially first-time homebuyers, navigate their way through the process is incredibly rewarding. And they come from all walks of life and from all around the world. That’s the beauty of working in the Washington DC area – each client has a different story, a different background, and that’s what keeps real estate fun and interesting for me.

3. Of all the experiences and sales you’ve had as a Realtor, can you tell me about your most memorable or most favorite?

The first time I had a client in the military, we had two days to find him a home. It had to be in a location that worked for him, starting school at the Uniformed Services University in Bethesda, and for his wife, who was starting at a new position in Baltimore. And to complicate things, his wife was still in Germany, so it’s two guys trying to find a place that we think she will like. We probably looked at 30 homes in those two days and finally found a townhouse that worked. It turned out to be a great place to start a family and they have remained friends of ours ever since.
