Marcela was born in Argentina and has lived in the US since 1993 and in Austin since 2004. She is versatile and multifaceted - being fully bilingual (English-Spanish) and possessing extensive experience with national and international clients. Since becoming a Realtor in 2008, Marcela has been successfully representing sellers, buyers, tenants and landlords.
Before becoming a Realtor, Marcela was an Early Childhood Educator and Administrator (M.Ed.) for nine years, followed by her work for over ten years in the non-profit sector as a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW). There, Marcela worked with children, families, and couples. It's this training and experience as an educator and family therapist that are instrumental in making Marcela unique in her role as a real estate consultant.
Marcela believes that most real estate transactions are the result of a life transition, whether it's marriage, divorce, empty nest, a new job, or a new child. Marcela's comprehensive experience and training in the fields of education and mental health allow her to provide a unique holistic approach to her business - to the tremendous benefit of her clients. Marcela is passionate about her role as a real estate agent and consultant, and she is known for having her clients' best interests in mind at all times. It's no mystery why 95% of her business is referral-based.

In Trulia’s recent report, Rent vs. Buy: Roommate Edition, they
"Marcela was awesome! She was extremely patient during our house searching process while we couldn't make up our mind of what we wanted. And then she found us the perfect house that matched what we were looking for. Always responsive and always gave us the real, unbiased information. She is there to be your friend during the house buying process...not someone constantly trying to get you to just buy something. Also, being bilingual was awesome as both my wife and I were confident we always understood every step of the process". We enjoyed working with Marcela so much that we have told several of our friends about her as they start their house buying journey in Austin."
