Working with Marx-Bensdorf REALTORS® is a step toward fulfilling a dream I have had for as long as I can remember. I have had a life-long interest in beautiful homes and a strong desire to help people find the home of their dreams. I believe that our happiness, contentment and productivity hinges around having a comfortable, comforting home environment.
During my 18-year career with International Paper, I had the opportunity to move many times and to adjust to new surroundings, a new home, new friends and new jobs. I know how important it is to get settled and comfortable as quickly as possible whether you are moving across town or around the world. I have been in those shoes.
Serving as Vice President of Communications and Sustainability at International Paper helped to develop my skills in working with people, communicating, marketing, negotiating, and advocating. In addition, I took a four-year hiatus from my work with IP to move to Rome, Italy, where I worked as Chief of Resources (fundraising) for the World Food Programme (WFP). My job was to raise the money necessary to support the organization's mission of providing life-saving food to people in crisis situations (such as those impacted by the recent earthquakes in Haiti). This required resourcefulness, diplomacy, strong negotiation skills and tenacity. I will bring the sum of my experiences to the table as I work with you to ensure that we find and secure the home of your dreams.
