Marie Bettini, CBR, CRB, e-Pro, GRI

Licensed Real Estate Broker

In 2016, I will celebrate 25 years of helping people navigate one of the most financially significant and personally meaningful transactions, buying or selling a home. I have built an agency that reflects my core values: service, integrity, knowledge. It has always been very important to me that the Albany Realty Group team is known for doing the best job – no matter what.

I am serving as 2016 President for the Greater Capital Association of REALTORS (GCAR), which represents more than 2,800 brokers, agents and other real estate professionals. In addition to serving in a number of GCAR Board roles, I previously served as president in 2008. I am again stepping into this role to give back to a professional organization that provides guidance, resources and support to its members and information to the public to help people understand the constantly changing real estate market.

Married to the love of my life for 38 years, I have called the Capital Region home for all that time, giving me a strong understanding of and deep affection for our multifaceted market. Since 2003, I have grown Albany Realty Group into a high-performing, service-oriented agency. My team includes my daughter, Jennifer, my son-in-law, Patrick, and a hand-picked group of dedicated agents.

I originally became a licensed realtor, back in 1991, for the opportunities and flexibility that the profession offered a busy mother of three. I continue to enjoy the challenge of putting a deal together, the competition to get business, and the satisfaction of helping people with a huge decision in their lives. Over the course of my career, I have had the additional challenges and satisfaction of building a business that makes a difference for our clients and the community.
