Marilyn Gruis came to the Pacific Northwest from Los Angeles and says she’s been “pretty local” to Portland for 47 years. After 25 years as a business owner she became a broker at Farrell Realty and has been doing a great job ever since! She loves to laugh and have a good time, and her positive attitude keeps clients coming back to do business. When working with a seller, she emphasizes one-on-one connection, and making sure that her clients never get lost in the shuffle. She works to keep things light and stress-free, and never uses pressure to close a deal. “You’ve got to have fun, and keep celebrating,” she says. She stays connected through her faith community and wide network of friends and clients. As a bilingual agent, Marilyn is sought after by sellers and new residents looking to call Portland home.
