Marles finished the period as the 3rd Top Producer. “2011 was a very successful year for Nathalie and it looks to be another one this year” remarked Bencosme “I love having someone with Nathalie’s expertise in our office because it allows us to service clients in more ways than just the traditional residential brokerage.” Bencosme was referring to Marles being a Short Sales and Foreclosure Resource Certified Professional, granted to her by the National Association of REALTORS. “One of the greatest aspects of this certification is being able to help homeowners who are in a difficult situation” said Marles.

Due to the current market she began to specialize in “short sales” and selling bank-owned homes for many direct lenders and asset management companies. “This keeps me on my toes with the current market values and has really sharpened my skills in performing market analysis for my clients” remarked Marles.
