Marcella Straub – BRE# 01969711
Marcella Straub is a realtor who grew up in the bay area and has lived in Tracy for many years. Even before she became a realtor, she had often bought, renovated and sold houses of her own. She knows all the challenges that families go through to find and sell a home, and she discovered that she is very good at real estate. So she has made it her primary focus in life to help others get though the entire home-buying/selling process with as little stress as possible.
She moved from the bay area to the Central Valley area 19 years ago to raise her family- so she knows what it’s like to be a transplant to the area. To purchase their first home- and subsequent homes- she worked with broker Eric Boehm, who made it such a positive experience over the years that it helped convince Marcella that doing real estate for people was her calling and passion.
Marcella’s real estate focus is residential, in Tracy and the Central Valley area as well as the Bay Area. Tracy is a suburb that offers a great place to raise a family, as she well knows, with fine schools and a lower cost of living. Central Valley is truly central too, a convenient gateway to all the shops, dining and other treasures of the Bay Area.
Entrepreneurship was instilled in Marcella from a young age. Her family came from many generations of entrepreneurs, raised to build businesses and help people succeed. Always tenacious, congenial, and super-creative, Marcella gained experience in a number of jobs. She worked in administration with various companies. She also did accounting. When she got married, she helped with designs for her husband’s tile company, giving her extensive knowledge of home construction and interior design.
Marcella has raised her two children in Tracy; one is in the local high school, the other is now in college. Being a realtor, Marcella loves to see first-time homebuyers get a house and become involved in the community. She herself volunteers for the homeless and supports causes relating to children. With much encouragement and support from her friends and family, she is thankful for her success.
