EPISODE TWENTY-SEVEN : Getting Your Real Estate Life Together with Christy Marshall

Christy Marshall has two loves: people and homes. The matches just keep getting more and more exciting for her. I know Christy well because she's been with my brokerage (that I co-own with Chris Guinn III) Dwell Realty, and I can say that she nails it with collaboration as she works together with clients to provide them with the best options.

She loves to be known as part of the “get-along gang,” as she makes working with her feel more like having fun with a friend. She has mastered being able to be a Realtor® in both Portland AND Colorado. 

Listen to how Christy was able to pivot working from one state to another with the help of a team, a mindset of flexibility and collaboration, and impacting her communities.
