OCEAN CITY, Md. (PRWEB) April 29, 2019
Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices PenFed Realty, one of the country’s fastest-growing real estate brokerages, today welcomes top-producing real estate professionals Marlene Ott and Spike Sands to its Ocean Pines office.
"We’re excited to welcome Marlene and Spike to the company,” said Terri Bracciale, regional president of the company’s Baltimore metro region. “Not only are they amazing agents with proven track records of successfully helping buyers and sellers for many years, but they’re also terrific people and a true pleasure to work with.”
Ott has been a real estate leader in the Maryland coastal area for over 40 years. She consistently ranks in the highest ten percent among the nation’s top producers and has received numerous accolades over the years, including Metropolitan Magazine’s Best Realtor® award, the Women’s Council of Realtors’ Businesswoman of the Year award, and a Lifetime Achievement award and Super Nova award from the Coastal Association of Realtors. She is a certified residential specialist, a graduate of the Realtors’ Institute, and a member of the Women’s Council of Realtors.
“Marlene was the one who actually started me on my own career path in real estate,” said Sharon Curtiss, branch manager of the company’s Ocean Pines office. “She recommended that I get my license back in 2001, which I did, and we then became friends through the Women’s Council of Realtors. I can personally vouch for Marlene’s integrity and professionalism, and we are all so pleased that she and Spike have decided to affiliate with us.”
Sands has been a resident of Ocean City since 1994 and has been delivering superior service to his clients since entering the business in 2010. A top producer with consistent five star ratings on Zillow®, he is currently among the Coastal Association of Realtors’ top 50 in sales volume for Worcester, Wicomico and Somerset counties. With a deep expertise and vast knowledge of Ocean City and its surrounding towns, Sands prides himself on his sharp eye for great value and keen sense of opportunity.
“On behalf of Spike, we’re both so pleased to be joining the company,” Ott said. “Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices PenFed Realty’s brand has always stood for knowledge, expertise and a commitment to superb customer service, which is what we’ve delivered and continue to deliver to the home buyers and sellers in the Eastern Shore year after year.”
