Michele Marano - Houston Real Estate Agent for the Energy Professional.About Michele Marano – Founder Real Estate for the Energy Professional

Michele Marano holds a bachelor’s degree from Marymount College in Tarrytown, N.Y., and has more than 15 years of experience brokering energy commodity markets on The New York Mercantile Exchange.  Michele was also the first female broker to start an Electricity OTC broker desk in 1995 after deregulation, offering swaps and derivatives to the industry.

The basis of what we do today is provide an paralleled level of real estate service to the energy industry – the energy professional.  Being able to understand the oil markets and how they affect our real estate is critical to our clientele.  We understand both markets and Michele is able to articulate that information to her clients.  Any questions, call us.

“After many moves from the East Coast to Houston, I wish there had been a specific Realtor to call on, who could actually have an intelligent conversation about the market and who could relate to my business. Now, I am that real estate agent, calling on my experience to give back to the energy industry and energy professionals.”
