As the Office Manager for McGuire’s Marin and Sonoma offices, Marcella oversees operations while providing daily support to the agents. Her contributions include listing and transaction management, inter-company communication and project development, recruiting and retention efforts, training agents on McGuire tools, and she facilitates the office sales meetings. Always working with the belief that her agent’s success is a reflection of her own, she offers support to McGuire agent’s that covers a multitude of challenges. Marcella uses different resources to bring new and valuable information to her agents at the sales meetings, making sure that each agent who attends the meeting walks away with information that holds applicable value to their specific business. Tech savvy and personable, Marcella is able to present the latest tools and trends that benefit her team in a comprehensive way. Having been in the business for 20 years and supporting many Marin County agents has enabled Marcella to establish strong relationships and has earned a reputation of providing top of the line support. Marcella began in Real Estate working as an Administrative Assistant when she was still a teenager, and progressively optimized available opportunities. In 2006 she was the Operations Manager for Morgan Lane, where she oversaw the construction of the Kentfield office and created the operations systems in place for all 6 offices. This was a key point in her career where she was able to really challenge herself and grow. In charge of interviewing staff and narrowing down candidates, one of Marcella’s important abilities was to recognize the applicants that would be the best fit for the company both on a capability level and a personality level. She has trained many staff members and agents over the years, and is always patient and tailors the training method to best suit the persons learning style. Marcella received her sales license in 2008, and was an agent for Frank Howard Allen from 2009-2012. During this time Marcella gained total perspective of the complexities of the business, not just from a support level but from being in the field. Marcella is a Marin County native, born at Marin General and raised in Novato. She often says that she has been ‘spoiled since birth’ having been lucky enough to call Marin her home. On her personal time she enjoys outdoor activities such as hiking, camping, and boating.
