Marie Sinclair Bennett’s real estate business is truly driven by her clients. Whether guiding a first-time buyer through their first real estate journey or assisting in a transition to a new abode for the next phase of life, Marie serves as an advocate every step of the way. Her clients are always prepared, well-listened to, and benefit from the expertise of a tenacious negotiator. At this point in her career, Marie is prepared to weather even the most perilous of storms. She expects the unexpected, has a knack for winning in multiple offer situations, and her selling clients appreciate her low average days on market—a testament to her skill in presentation, pricing and feel. With a background in interior design and landscape consultation, Marie offers the imagination one needs to seamlessly prepare a home for the market or envision the possibilities of a future space. She is Feng Shui Certified and has a penchant for utilizing what exists within a home to bring out it’s best features. When the occasion calls, Marie facilitates communications with contractors, inspections and photographers; tailors strategic marketing plans; and leverages robust industry contacts to command results. Over 25 years ago, Marie took a ferry from Seattle to Bainbridge Island in a flurried moment for a first date and just two years later, Bainbridge became her home. Though romance is what brought her here, it’s the Island that stole her heart. Through the changing tides of her personal life, she counts on the salty smooth air, close relationship to nature and strong artistic community to remain the same. Marie is deeply passionate about the arts, from pen on paper to performance—she is involved in The Bainbridge Chorale, Bainbridge Performing Arts and Ovation. When not in the office, Marie can be found walking the beach, taking a surprise dip in the Sound, chasing sunsets, and unwinding at the local wine bars with Bijoux, her adorable King Charles Cavalier Spaniel.
