About Marilyn (Medy)
Medy Monarch joins the Jenn Smira Team of Compass with 30 years of Fortune 500 business experience, bringing strong managerial and organizational skills along with her. She commenced her career in Silicon Valley as a pioneer of the male-dominated tech and telecom industries, before also gaining experience in both sales and human resources, where she was exposed to marketing and operations. At Citrix, she led a large global team that recruited and onboarded 2,000 employees per year in a fiercely competitive market. As a senior executive, she was responsible for negotiating over 400 vendor agreements.
Four years ago, Medy decided to apply her fast-paced, blue chip business experience to real estate with the vision of leveraging her business acumen - sales, marketing and overall top management skills - to put them to work for her real estate clients.
Over the years, Medy has developed a loyal client base, cultivating a strong following of World Bank employees as well as first-time buyers and growing families. Her transactions average just under $1 million and and her local expertise spans a variety of neighborhoods, from the premium condos of Logan Circle and Adams Morgan, to the high-end residences in Upper Northwest, to the up-and-coming townhomes of Petworth.
Whether you have an easy or challenging property, Medy brings a solutions-driven approach, coupled with diplomacy and marketing skills to guide clients - buyers and sellers alike - through a successful and lucrative transaction.
An active member of the community, Medy provides mentoring services at Generation Hope, a local organization dedicated to helping D.C. area teen parents become college graduates. She also contributes to the Posse Foundation, which identifies high school students with exceptional academic and leadership potential, who may be overlooked by traditional college selection processes, awarding them a four-year, full-tuition leadership scholarship. Through these initiatives, Medy is invested in empowering future generations.
Although she's a global traveler who has set foot in over 60 countries, Medy has called DC her home for more years than anywhere else. She holds an MA in Organizational Management and a PhD in Human Development.
