A native New Yorker, Margherita was born in Brooklyn and raised in Westchester County. In 2006, she purchased her first of many properties, a teeny studio on Barrow Street in the West Village. From there, she moved to Brooklyn and has since called Fort Greene, Carroll Gardens, Brooklyn Heights, Williamsburg, and now Lefferts Manor home. Passionate about home design and buying and selling real estate, Margherita has been investing in renovating her own homes for more than a decade and selling them for profit. She is always on the hunt for a new property, whether for herself or her clients. Margherita's keen design eye and expertise at identifying a "good buy" are invaluable when helping her clients make a house a home.
Prior to working in real estate, Margherita studied Art History at Hobart and William Smith College. She spent years at top Madison Avenue advertising agencies, where she ran administrative and office service teams, orchestrated elaborate events, and redesigned office spaces. Margherita also co-ran her own floral business, Franki Elizabeth, and her creations were featured in media outlets including Pure Wow and the Today Show.
Her extensive experience in advertising, management, design, and home renovations is an essential part of how she successfully guides her buyers and sellers, whether it's searching for the perfect fixer-upper or staging a home to maximize profits upon sale.
Fluent in Italian and English, Margherita enjoys spending free time with her husband (who she met in middle school!) and running after her young son. She also loves spending time outdoors on the North Fork of Long Island at her home, traveling, cooking, and reading.
