Marjorie’s impressive career reads like a Who’s Who in the world of architecture and politics. Before joining Turpin, she was an assistant to high-profile professionals including William E. Simon Sr., retired Secretary of the U.S. Treasury under President Nixon; nationally-recognized Morristown architect Peter Dorne; and award-winning golf course architect Rees Jones. She also has experience as a personal lines appraiser in the insurance industry and a real estate property manager for luxury condominium communities in the New Jersey Gold Coast towns of Hoboken and Jersey City.
Marjorie is a strong believer in real estate as an investment. “It's important to feel that ownership and to enjoy something tangible and touchable. Finding the right home for the right person is a challenge I wholeheartedly enjoy. Buying the perfect home IS the American Dream,” she said.
Friends, clients and co-workers describe Marjorie as easily approachable, caring, loyal and easy to talk to. Her ability to make a person feel at ease - especially in an uncomfortable situation – is another outstanding quality. Known for high levels of professionalism and an ability to listen carefully to others has also fostered her success over the years.
A lifelong resident of Morris County, Marjorie currently lives in Harding Township with her husband. She has close ties to the community and has been a member of the Madison Golf Club, Madison High School Girls Tennis and Boys Lacrosse Booster Clubs and has taught CCD at Assumption Church. She served as Board Secretary for Gull’s Cove Condominium Association in Jersey City, for several years. Marjorie is a certified personal trainer who ran in the 2013 New York Marathon and also enjoys weight-training, golf, tennis, dance and exercise challenges of any kind. She has a grown son and daughter, and her blended family includes three more grown daughters and three grandchildren. She has a bachelor’s degree in education from the University of Hawaii.
With her longtime interest in architecture, construction and real estate as well as her aptitude for construction management and client contact service, Marjorie is a welcome addition to the Bernardsville staff. “Turpin is distinctive because of the people who comprise it and the very high standards by which they conduct their business and this profession,” Marjorie noted. “I believe by joining this elite team I will demand the best of myself as well.
