Marina Plute studied Sales and Marketing Management at CSU East Bay and has been a realtor, listing, buyer specialist, and new home consultant for 15 years. Marina’s area covers East Contra Costa County, San Ramon, and the Tri-Valley. Marina begins each transaction by carefully assessing the client’s actual needs and resources. She then provides exceptional service throughout the process, bringing her resources of experience and hard-won wisdom to bear on guaranteeing to the extent possible that each of her clients — whether first time buyers and sellers or experienced investors — reach their goals. Marina enjoys getting involved in community service activities. However, she says that she derives greatest satisfaction from spending quality time with her two young boys. She is very active in their elementary school Pioneer where she volunteers to help in their classrooms and has also developed a Teacher of the Month program.
