Marci Browne, President

In 1999 I began my career in Real Estate with American Dream Properties and 3 years later I obtained my Broker License and opened America's Choice Realty. During the time I operated my business in the city of St. Louis, I was an active member of both the Middle of The Mitten Committee, and St. Louis Downtown Development, where I enjoyed working on the many projects and events. Then in 2007, I made the decision to relocate America's Choice Realty to the Village Shoppes Building, located in downtown Ithaca. Currently I've been serving a second term on the Board of Directors for the Central Michigan Board of Realtors, a member of Membership Committee & Equal Opportunity Housing Committee. Additionally, I'm a member of Ithaca Downtown Development, an Ambassador for the Gratiot Area Chamber of Commerce & board member, Co-Chair for the Gratiot County Princess Ball Event, Chairperson for the Ithaca Promotional Committee, CMAR representative on the Greater Gratiot Development board and a member of the Alma Area Business & Professional Women's Association. In 2009 I was presented with the Woman of Achievement Award, in 2011 I was presented with the Ithaca Area Person of the Year , and in 2012 I was presented with the Central Michigan Association Realtor of the Year and was very humbled and honored to receive all three of these awards. Working fairly & honestly and helping to grow my community has always been my number one goal.

Member of RE/MAX Executive Club 2009-2010. I have been a REALTOR for the last 12 years after being in the car business. I love to drive and see all the beauty of the USA. I have two great kids who are now grown and married young adults. I am married to Lori, our AE. Real estate is a great career, but it has gotten to be more of a challenge due to financing/appraisal challenges. I love working with 1st time buyers and helping them achieve the dream of home ownership. Also, I like having other jobs to go along with Real Estate. I don't like to sit in the office and wait for the phone to ring. I just like keeping busy. I am looking forward to being on our Board to help us move forward into, hopefully, a more harmonious Association.
