Marcela Foshay, REALTOR®
Marcela was introduced to the beauty of Central Virginia during a visit to her in-laws farm in 2004. Over the next 4 years, Marcela and her husband, an Orange County native, escaped from New York City to the area at every opportunity. In 2008 the couple relocated to Charlottesville. They now live just west of town with 2 young children.
Marcela worked at the UN in New York City and internationally for 10 years in program management and administration management, honing her natural mutli-tasking and organizational strengths. She also worked in marketing and public relations, which will no doubt serve her well in residential real estate. No surprise, with her resume from the UN, Marcela is fluent in Slovak, Czech, Russian and of course English. She easily understands several other languages too!
On the non-profit front, Marcela has quickly distinguished herself in the Charlottesville community. She graduated from the Board Development Academy at the Center for Nonprofit Excellence and has devoted many hours to The Women’s Initiative, a local nonprofit providing mental health care to women in need. Additionally, she is one of the founding members of the Charlottesville Area Community Foundation’s Future Fund, where she has served as a Co-chair of the Resource and Development Committee and as a member of the Grants and Steering Committees. She is also helping several local non-profits with their fundraising efforts, namely Charlottesville Business Innovation Council, The Women’s Initiative and St. Anne’s Belfield School.
Marcela is a natural for real estate sales. Her energy and sense of urgency promise that she will work tirelessly for her buyer clients in pursuit of the right home. Her analytical mind and background in advertising will translate into excellent valuation skills and effective marketing for her clients who are selling their properties. Her extensive contacts through her non-profit efforts and her children’s schools will serve Marcela in real estate too.
If there is any time left over after the demands and joys of her family, Marcela can be found on a local golf course or perhaps enjoying a good meal at one of the area’s many excellent restaurants.
