From Humble Beginnings to Community Champions:

Real Estate Community and Family

The world of real estate can often be a cold, competitive industry. However, when you come across a family-owned business with a genuine passion for helping people find their perfect homes, it’s a breath of fresh air. This is precisely the story of Marsha Marsh Real Estate, a company built from humble beginnings that has grown to become a champion within its community.

Marsha Marsh’s journey into real estate began when she met her husband, Greg Marsh, at church. Greg was stationed in Germany during his time in the service. Upon his return, the couple got engaged, married, and Greg suggested that Marsha enter the world of real estate. He recognized her natural talent for helping people find their ideal living spaces and believed she could excel in the industry.

Taking her husband’s advice, Marsha took the real estate test and passed it while still working at her regular job. Initially, she juggled both her jobs initially but eventually decided to take the plunge and focus on real estate full-time. In 2000, Marsha became an official realtor in the Erie County Board of Realtors, and around 2005 her son Levi joined her full time leaving his job at UPS helping his mother continue growing her business.

Recognizing the potential for even greater success, Marsha’s sons, Laban and Levi, realized that they were giving away too much money to brokers and decided to start their own business to provide a higher level of service than what was currently available. The family business took off a few short years later when Marsha’s third son, Lucas Marsh, joined the family buisness.

Running a family business is not without its challenges, but the Marsh family has found a way to make it work. They respect each other’s roles and know that everyone has each other’s back. While their personalities differ, they all share the same goal of providing excellent service to their clients. Greg acts as the behind-the-scenes glue that keeps everything running smoothly, while the rest of the family is out in the field, making home buying and selling dreams come true.

Owning a family business comes with its unique set of benefits. The Marsh family enjoys freedom in decision-making, the ability to continue a family legacy, and the power to support local businesses. They have built a successful, financially stable company that continues to thrive, all while keeping their focus on serving their community.

One of the most rewarding aspects of working at Marsha Marsh Real Estate is assisting first-time homebuyers. Guiding clients through one of the most important financial decisions of their lives is a responsibility the Marsh family takes great pride in. Their brokerage’s philosophy centers on serving clients rather than merely generating profits.

The success of Marsha Marsh Real Estate is a testament to the family’s unwavering commitment to their community, clients, and each other. Their story serves as a shining example of what can be achieved when passion, a sense of responsibility to community and hard work come together in pursuit of a common goal.
