Marilisa moved to the United States in 2010 where she gave birth to her two littles, James (10) and Siena (8) and she has been a Kirkland resident ever since. She has two very aloof cats, Finlay and Poppy, and a buoyant Golden Retriever pup, called Bailey. Don’t be reeled in by her British accent. She is actually a born and bred Italian, hailing from Lake Como, but she graduated from University in England after which she met her husband, Matt, while they both were working on TV. Marilisa has had a long love affair with homes, so she supposes it was only natural that she would end up forging an entrepreneurial career in real estate eventually. She absolutely loves it!
Here are some facts you may not know about Marilisa: she used to read the sports news on local radio in Oxford, she was an aspiring ballet dancer and amateur actress, she has an elephant’s memory (except when it comes to movies and history dates, which she forgets instantly), and predictably she has a penchant for good pizza and a hearty plate of pasta. Marilisa is also a published writer in the Huffington Post and her previous longtime career was in IT. When she is not selling real estate or busy being a mama, you will find the fashionista in her at Nordstrom, at home renovating her Kirkland farmhouse, or practicing yoga at Bala. The only activity that truly relaxes her, is gardening. That is where she finds her true Zen.
Her ambition in this business is to be of service. Her role as a Realtor® is to educate and help her clients in all the ways available to her in order to see them realize their very unique and personal ambitions. It’s what this job is all about and it is also what drives Marilisa to be the very best in this business.
