Marilyn Berger

Marilyn Berger is a licensed realtor in Pennsylvania and Maryland. On Valentine's Day 1979, she opened the doors to her own office, and she could not have chosen a better day for a career she loves so much. Though the small firm consisted only of Marilyn and a part-time secretary, the size of the operation was never an issue—quality is always preferred to quantity, Marilyn believes. From early education through parochial schools through graduating Lancaster Catholic High School and attending Franklin and Marshall College, she is Lancastrian through and through. She is also a graduate of the Real Estate Institute and has actively sold commercial, residential and investment properties for 50 years. She continues to enjoy locating the right business or home for a prospect and shows no signs of slowing anytime soon.
