Originally from New York, Marci Landis developed a love for Real Estate at a very young age. She graduated from the Fashion Institute of Technology in Manhattan — having studied fine arts – with a major and emphasis in textile and fashion design. Thereafter, Marci attended college, married and became the proud parent of three wonderful children.
A savvy business woman, Marci became Vice President and Company Officer of the National Recovery Bureau Inc. in Monsey, New York. She worked with computer programmers to set up systems and comprehensive business performance reports for hospitals, department stores, banks, and doctors’ offices.
Ready for a change in scenery, Marci and her children relocated to South Florida.
“I remember when we arrived at the Miami Airport. I learned how it was to step into the shoes of a single parent.”
Marci landed a job in the mortgage industry. She became a loan officer, which was unusual at this time because females were traditionally loan processors – not loan officers. She kept telling herself, “I can do this. I can open my own business.” She did.
After working for several different loan companies in both Dade and Broward Counties, Marci founded Landis Mortgage Financing, Inc.
Owning and operating one of the first female-owned mortgage companies in Florida, (and one of the first in the United States) provided Marci with extensive knowledge and contacts in the banking and real estate markets in Dade, Broward, and Palm Beach counties.
Because of her experience at the National Recovery Bureau, Marci tailored and implemented net worked computer systems at Landis Mortgage Financing, Inc. that were unique to the mortgage industry and which enhanced all phases of the business from loan origination, processing and mortgage funding with Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac, FHA and VA.
After success in the mortgage industry, Marci sold her company, Landis Mortgage Financing, Inc. With her children now on their own, she found it necessary to embark on a once-in-a-lifetime journey. “I traveled to many third-world countries as I had a tremendous desire to connect directly with the people of the world. I was genuinely interested in learning about their financial challenges and their methods of coping with third-world economics. It proved to be a life-changing experience, and I returned with a renewed sense of hope and energy. I also returned with many new relationships and wonderful stories.”
Upon returning to South Florida, Marci felt the need to give back to her community. She joined the Broward County Guardian Ad Litem program. As a volunteer for this court-appointed position, she was able to use her skills productively as an advocate for abused children in the court system.
With her formal education in art and design — coupled with her hobby of space planning and interior design, Marci decided to embark on a related career — Real Estate. With her skills in home staging, mortgage financing and credit repair, a career in Real Estate was a natural progression. “Having lived in South Florida and having been an owner of a very successful mortgage lending corporation, I had become familiar with the many facets and challenges of the South Florida Real Estate market.”
“I see a world of opportunity in making my clients financially secure.”
With South Florida’s expanded inventory and her vast knowledge of the business, Marci will assist you to make sound decisions in your Real Estate transactions.
