Marissa came to Baird & Warner's Gold Coast office following 14 successful years in couture fashion and luxury retail management.  She joins her mother, Sharon Gillman, who leads The Gillman Group.

Marissa offers a fresh perspective to the real estate arena.  She brings a keen, discerning eye, an innate love of helping people, and the ability to match individuals to their desired surroundings with discretion.  She tailors her service to each client's needs, tirelessly delivering the extra effort that makes every transaction as worry-free as possible.  Whether staging a home or outsourcing painters and plumbers, she truly goes the extra mile.

Sharon brings nearly 30 years of expertise in real estate sales and negotiations, and is consistently a top producer for Baird & Warner's Gold Coast office.  Marissa was selected (her first year in real estate) as Baird & Warner's "Rookie of the Year" for her impressive sales accomplishments and remains a top producer.  Together, Marissa and Sharon form a powerhouse duo.

Marissa's great taste isn't confined to real estate and fashion.  When she isn't selling, you will find her seeking out the city's hidden interior design gems.  She is also passionate about travel, volunteer work, and maintaining a healthy lifestyle.  You will often find her cooking and baking heart-healthy creations in her kitchen with her husband.
