In an area that attracts so many people from other states, Marjorie Wallace is no transplant — she has lived in Pleasanton, California, for more than 40 years and knows the area’s market well. In fact, her family was deeply involved in real estate. Her father was a building contractor, and both parents were licensed real estate agents.
Her father’s business led to Marjorie’s interest in architecture and construction, and her close-up view of the real estate business led to a fascination with the details that transform a house into a lifestyle. She studied art and business at California State University, East Bay, after which she built her own interior design business. Here, Marjorie cultivated valuable skills and experience working with clients, understanding their needs and desires, and translating that information into the tangible: a home that is perfect for them.
Now, as a real estate professional, Marjorie serves clients who are primarily well-established homeowners with an above-average net worth who may own multiple properties. However, as her client relationships deepen, a new niche of buyers has emerged. Often the children of past and current clients, many of them have become first-time homeowners themselves. Both new and experienced buyers and sellers praise Marjorie’s ability to simplify complex transactions and take the worry out of the process.
In her leisure time, Marjorie enjoys reading, visiting museums, traveling with her husband and friends, indulging her passion for drawing and painting, and hosting cookie-making parties for her grandchildren.
