My husband Charlie and I have four children, and two grandchildren. They are truly my love and my life. Aside from my family, I love creativity and beauty! Working with my team on this property and creating this sanctuary in the city has been one of my most rewarding journeys to date. I am a retired DCFS master trainer. Prior to that, my sculptures were to be found in many of the local stores and businesses including the lobbies of the Old Clock Tower resort. It has been my good fortune to have traveled extensively here and abroad over the years. This Spanish style home is reminiscent of what I have seen with pargeted embellishments and walls that could tell many tales. My vision is to see this, 'The Sedona of Rockford' as a Beacon of Light that inspires us all!
Marlene purchased this Villa in 2019
Why Marlene chose Rockford
This property is a hidden treasure that has remained elusive to everyone I know. Its uniqueness to this part of the country is unparalleled in my view. It has been my honor to be able to bring it as they say, to the rainbow. We are all blessed.
What makes this Villa unique
My team and I have gone to great lengths in creating a seclusive environment. Close the gates behind you upon entering and you feel as though you are no longer in the city, but rather in the heart of another place and another time. Due to my sense of wishing for others the experience of the extraordinary, at every turn a flair of Funk along with tradition will be found.
