Though trained as a painter and art historian, Marcie has always followed her entrepreneurial bent and found ways to blend art and commerce. After graduating from Hampshire College, she settled in Manhattan where she worked for Christie's Auction House and some private art dealers before she struck out on her own to deal primarily in 19th and 20th century European art.
Marcie subsequently moved to France to study painting. During a period that would eventually expand to eight years, she developed an interest in antique furniture which she parlayed into an export business and which evolved to include dealing in antique jewelry and textiles . She spent several years scouring the French countryside for the best pieces and sold them to stores such as Ralph Lauren and Barneys.
Back in NY, she and her husband were drawn to the beauty and European feel of Brownstone Brooklyn, and it was from their Park Slope abode that they teamed up to launch a successful gift and housewares design business.
Now a multiple property owner herself, the last decade has seen Marcie move from the purchase of her own family home in Ditmas Park to being involved in the purchase, gut renovation and sale of additional buildings in Park Slope and vicinity.
She brings to her customers the same zeal and detail-oriented attention that she has brought to all the ventures of her life. From researching potential properties for a client, to sharing her knowledge and experience of local public schools, to helping to resolve a sticky situation between a buyer and seller, Marcie's broad experience and open and friendly nature makes her a favorite realtor choice for a growing number of satisfied clients.
Currently, she shares her Ditmas Park Victorian with her husband, two teenagers and their beloved Akita, Beckham. When she is not thinking about real estate, Marcie likes to paint, bike around Prospect Park, scour flea markets, visit museums and travel.
