FOREIGN LANGUAGE: Romanian For over 20 years Mariana, known as "Ina", has built her reputation on her listening ability. "I listen carefully to my clients and patiently work to get what they want, not what I might think they want!" Visiting friends in the city, Ina fell in love with what Manhattan can offer best, its real estate, and that became her passion. She started her dream carrier in 1997, being associated with a boutique firm, working directly with the owners. Throughout her career, Ina represented both local and international sellers, buyers and renters, taking time to show her clients different areas in Manhattan, allowing them to choose their dream home and the right neighborhood that would fit their needs. After finding their home, she assists them in selling or renting their current property. Ina loves the challenge of procuring the right home for her clients, even going further in helping them with designers, contractors, and movers. In 2005, Ina was nominated by REBNY for its "Deal of the Year." Ina was born in Bucharest, Romania where she graduated from Polytechnic Institute of Bucharest, as a Metallurgical Engineer then worked for a research Institute. She likes to walk, explore the city, and spend time with her husband at their cottage in Maine and home in Bucharest, Romania. In 2004 Ina partnered with her husband, George R. Penny , working since then on different aspects of each transaction with care, professionalism, and competence. One or both of them is always available to assist you in the process for a smooth and successful transaction.
