E-mail: Marlene Castagna
I am a competent, experienced full-time residential real estate sales person in the Fox River Valley community. I pride myself in maintaining close contact with my clients and paying close attention to the details to avoid problems and ensure that their home sale or home buying experience is a very positive one. Thank you for the opportunity to tell you more about myself.
I reside and raise my family in the Cary area for the past 9 years. Previously, I have lived in the communities of Minneapolis, Phoenix and Bidgeport. This is my third time living in the Chicagoland area. I have been trasferred to this area twice with my jobs in the Medical and Computer Service Industries. In the 70's I lived in the Carpentersville area and then in the 80's I lived in the Palatine area. My husband was transferred to this area in June of 1996. We settled in the Cary area and are very comfortable in our community.
My husband, Phil and I have been married for 20 years and have two children. We have a boy and a girl, 17 and 15 years old respectively. We also have two older sons that are on their own, one lives here in Algonquin with his wife, the other lives in France temporarily. We love spending as much time as possible with our children as they are a big part of our lives. We enjoy entertaining with friends and family for any type of get-together.
I am involved with volunteering for school functions for the kids, such as party helper and school improvement and PTO work. I am also involved with the Cary-Grove Newcomer's Club and have held various positions such as Programs Committee, Fundraising the Annual Auction.
