I have always had a strong interest in real estate and obtained a Master’s degree in Real Estate and Finance. I was the Director of Community and Business Banking, financing thousands of commercial properties and/ business loans. After moving to Florida, it seemed natural to pursue a career in Real Estate. I obtained my Real Estate License and have been handling real estate sales in the Burnt Store/Punta Gorda area since 2000. During that time, I have been involved with roughly 1000 properties totaling over $240,000,000.

I am on the board of the Michael Saunders Foundation where I make a donation for every real estate transaction I complete. The foundation supports many of the charities that are so important to me including the Charlotte County Homeless Coalition; the Backpack Kids; and AMI Crossroads, a charter school for foster boys. I love sailing in the local waters, yoga, and hiking with my husband.

About Me:
Originally from Lima, Peru, I moved to Florida with my family in 1993. Though I miss family members who still live in Peru, I have grown to love it here, and have have gained strong knowledge of the Punta Gorda-Port Charlotte area. I have held different jobs, each one giving me new skills and areas of expertise. This one is the most fun, and really allows me to make a difference. What I do within our team matters.  I enjoy cooking Peruvian meals and love spending time with my enormous family.  I have a lovely little baby girl, Daniella, and I also have two furry babies, Lola and Tati.

Marianne Goldberg

Web Manager & Marketing Coordinator

Fax: (941) 505-1550
E-mail: pgmarianne@comcast.net

What I Do:
I am the web manager and marketing coordinator. I make sure our listings are getting optimal online exposure, along with effective print and mail advertising.

About Me:
I love living in Punta Gorda Isles. For me, it is first about the people, and second being able to live on the water. This is a small city that truly has a big heart—because the people do. My husband was a former mayor so I bring an in-depth knowledge of how the city operates to our team.  I moved to Punta Gorda Isles in 2001 from New Jersey. I retired from AT&T and consulted with Computer Associates, always in Information Systems. I have degrees from Rutgers and George Washington Universities, and obtained my Realtor License in 2004. I play at playing golf, and enjoy boating. I am involved in several local charities that focus on domestic abuse and children’s needs. I have two sons, a daughter-in-law, and four grandsons—all still in NJ. I live with my husband and two fluffy rescue kitties, Sophie and Max.
