Marie Tanabe, Realtor, Certified Luxury Home Marketing Specialist, GRI,
Marie has consistently been a multi-million dollar producer since her entry into real estate 10 years ago. Her commitment to detailed professionalism and maintaining client relationships has resulted in the majority of her sales coming from past clients and referrals. Marie's passion for excellence and customer service ensures a successful and profitable transaction.
Having moved with her family and dog through several states and several locations within Jupiter, Juno Beach, and Palm Beach Gardens, Marie understands the needs of both sellers and buyers. She identifies the needs of her clients and is able to walk them through the often arduous process of purchasing and selling a home.
After a circuitous route Marie happily found her way to Florida just over 20 years ago. Originally from eastern Long Island she earned a degree in Music from SUNY Oswego, spent a year studying in Paris, migrated to Ohio to complete a graduate degree in Administration, moved south to Pinehurst, North Carolina to start her family and finally landed in the land of perpetual sunshine.
When not involved with her full time real estate pursuits at Illustrated Properties, Marie can be found spending time with family, visiting her 2 older sons in Manhattan, or attending a great concert or theatre production.
Marie was named the 2015 Top Producer in the Palm Beach Illustrated Properties office.
Theresa Tecson, Buyers Specialist
Theresa found that her strengths with social/behavioral interaction and networking offered an advantage in retail. She applied her field of study towards a career path in retail management under luxury brands such as, Louis Vuitton, Cartier, Omega and Bloomingdale’s. “Engaging in an elevated service level to high end clients, you learn the art of listening, business etiquette, respect and follow up.” “In order to give outstanding service to your clients, you must listen (to the verbal and non verbal cues) to make sure that you are meeting their needs in a timely manner.” Theresa feels her strength in communication and follow up is the key to success in the real estate market. Knowledge of the local market, combined with the determination to assist others is essential to having your clients make confident decisions in selecting their next home. Theresa is always happy when she has an opportunity to meet new people and introduce them to what the Florida lifestyle has to offer.
“Nothing gives me more pleasure than to have someone excited to move into their new home and know that I was an integral part of making their dreams come true!”
