Born and raised in Westlake, Marielle has called Austin home for over 20 years and has seen the evolution and growth of Austin from a population of 400,000 to the booming city it is today. After graduating from Rice University with a BA in Sociology and as a member of the Varsity Women’s Soccer Team, Marielle moved back to Austin to pursue her passion and began a career in real estate. In 2008 she co-founded the residential leasing division of Gottesman Residential and focused on specializing in high-end home and condo rentals and in 2010 made the shift to Coldwell Banker United to expand into sales. After her first year in sales she had closed over $10 million in inventory, making her a recipient of the International Sterling Society Award, given to the top 11% of Coldwell Banker agents world wide. In addition to her work in residential real estate, Marielle was raised in the business and draws from her family’s long time work in the Austin commercial real estate world.
“The most fulfilling aspect of this industry is the challenge that comes with every deal. Each home is different and everyone’s needs in a home are different. I like to drawn on my experience in Austin to help find the perfect match for my client’s needs and to advertise the strongest qualities of each listing. Whether it’s an one-of-a-kind Lake Austin estate, an investment property, or a starter home, I thoroughly enjoy the experience of working with each and every client.”
Marielle’s passion for selling real estate has made her a highly respected among both her colleagues and clients. While Marielle graduated from Rice University in Houston with a BA in Sociology and spent time living in New York and Los Angeles, Marielle grew up as a native “Austin Girl” and has always kept the city and people of Austin close to her heart. Specializing in West Lake Hills, Tarrytown, Pemberton Heights, Old Enfield, Clarksville, Lake Travis, Hyde Park and Travis Heights, she is someone whom sellers and buyers can trust with her vast knowledge of the Austin area.
Throughout her experience as a Austin area Realtor, Marielle has built her business by serving some of Austin’s most elite business and entertainment figures while also helping many “first time” homebuyers see their dreams through with that extra touch of attentive nurturing. Marielle’s efforts have earned her awards including the prestigious “International Sterling Society Award” as one of the top selling agents in her company. Much of Marielle’s success has come from the referrals and recommendations from her past clients. Her business-savvy mind and engaging personality are the qualities that continue to win over her clients and she always handles each and every one of their needs with the same care and professionalism.
She also keeps a strong involvement in organizations such as The Austin Chamber, The Austin Chapter of Young Rice Alumni, and has been a long time member of St. John Neumann Catholic Church. In her spare time, Marielle can be found supporting the local film and live music scene, enjoying Austin’s numerous parks and spending time enjoying the outdoors with her husband and two border collies.
