Marcus Medina grew up on a farm in California and developed a passion to travel the world. Instead of attending college in America, Marcus studied at Hammersmith Polytechnic in London and the Alliance Française in Paris. After leaving Europe, he lived in such disparate places as Alaska, Mexico City and Rio de Janeiro where he picked up Spanish, French and Portuguese.

In addition to his academic pursuits, Marcus attended chef school, which inspired him to come to New York and start his own restaurant. The restaurant became so successful that he actually opened and operated 8 more restaurants in different parts of town. After all his travels, Marcus felt he had found his permanent home here in New York.

But the restaurant industry was not satisfying to Marcus. As he puts it, “I liked the creative part but I didn’t care for the daily routine. I learned something about real estate when I negotiated my own restaurant leases and I loved the fast-paced excitement. I decided to take a chance and trade the restaurant industry for real estate. It was a great move.”

With his sophisticated business skills, Marcus quickly became a real estate team leader at his first brokerage. A friend suggested Marcus move up in the industry by associating with Urban Sanctuary. “At the interview, I hit it off immediately with the people of Urban. Everything felt fresh and brand new with the freedom to implement new approaches.” Marcus gladly accepted the position of the Midtown Manager.

As Manager, Marcus mentors teams of sales and rental agents. He believes Urban Sanctuary’s customers are best served by agents who work together systematically and are the most knowledgeable in the industry.

This approach is working. Marcus has developed trusting personal contacts with property owners and managers, which gives Urban Sanctuary the ability to make deals that satisfy both tenant and landlord.
Marcus shows the agents he supervises how to communicate with clients, avoid surprises and above all, find tenants the home of their dreams. He attributes his agents’ success to market expertise, effective negotiating and a passion for helping people make the best deals.

While other brokerages are complaining about the current real estate market, Marcus says Urban Sanctuary has already exceeded its goals for the year. “Real estate is a dynamic business. Every morning you look at what happened the day before and you revise your strategy. The future looks really bright.”
