Marcia Taranto is a native New Yorker who has been in the real estate industry for more than 25 years. Born and bred in Manhattan, she has lived and worked in this ever-evolving city and has been involved in every aspect of real estate from property management, co-op/condo conversions, development and, of course, sales. She has deservedly earned the reputation as a knowledgeable professional who guides her customers through a continually changing real estate market. Marcia has achieved the distinction of being named as one of NRT’s top 1,000 Sales Associates out of 64,000 sales associates nationwide.
Marcia’s strong familiarity and background in management give her that extra edge in being intimately acquainted with real estate on more than a superficial level. She knows her neighborhoods, her properties, board requirements and, very importantly, what questions should be asked. She is an invaluable asset to someone seeking to sell or buy a property.
Marcia has brokered both residential and commercial properties. Her sale of 521 West 22nd Street, aka 530 West 22nd Street, a 37,000-square foot warehouse building, for use as an art gallery represented a turning point for Chelsea and the start of its transformation into an art gallery mecca. Her residential sales are numerous and her knowledge of the City is unrivaled.
Apart from real estate, Marcia’s passion is dance. Her BA degree is in English and her Master’s degree is in Theater. She has served on the board of directors of the Boca Ballet Theater and is currently on the board of directors of the Peridance Contemporary Dance Company. She is a member of the National Arts Club where she maintains a strong involvement with the arts.
Marcia loves what she does. She enjoys solving problems and bringing joy to people, all of which she does when she finds someone that perfect or almost perfect home or helps someone to sell and move on with life. She offers calm direction, firm guidance and intelligent, informed service.
