A licensed Realtor since 1979, Marianne has been among the top
5 Real Estate agents in Squamish since 1990. Marianne is the #1 Realtor in dollar volume and units sold at Royal LePage Black Tusk Realty and top ten in British Columbia for Royal LePage in 2006.
In 1962 her family (Mortensen) moved to Squamish. Marianne grew
up enjoying all the outdoor activities that the Sea to Sky Corridor
had to offer (skiing, swimming, biking and hiking). Upon graduation,
Marianne went on to the University of British Columbia where she
received her B.Sc. in Psychology. In 1979 she continued her education
and received her Real Estate License. Marianne tackled markets
around the Lower Mainland including Vancouver, Mission and Steveston.
Eventually ending up in Whistler, the crash of 1980/81 motivated
Marianne to find an alternate career and ended up working for Emergency
Health Services as an ambulance attendant.
In 1984 Marianne and her husband Van moved from Whistler back
to Squamish. The affordable, safe, healthy community in which Marianne
grew up was where they wanted to raise their 3 children. Their
children have enjoyed excellent schooling and are all avid soccer
players, mountain bikers and snowboarders.
Realizing that Real Estate was what Marianne loved
to do, in 1987 Marianne was back in business and joined Black Tusk
Realty, now Royal LePage BTR.
Marianne knows the Sea to Sky marketplace and is proud to call
it home. As she often says “Squamish
sells itself, I just have to introduce you to it ”.
Marianne believes the health of a community requires input and
involvement from its residents and plays an active role in
