Marlene is formerly from the Midwest. She earned a degree in Broadcast Journalism from the University of Missouri-Columbia and has a solid background in working with television, radio, newspapers and magazines. After college she worked as a television reporter in Kansas, Missouri and in Wisconsin. She moved back to Wichita, Kansas in 1983 to marry Craig Graham, a local real estate agent.

In succeeding years, Marlene founded and operated a number of area publications, hosted a television show of which she was Executive Producer, and published an annual 300 page book entitled Spotlight on Wichita. She sold her publications prior to “hitting the highways” with her husband and 2 children for a 1-year adventure road-trip across all 50 states of America. In fact, this was the second trip of its kind for Marlene, as 20 years earlier she had traveled America with her parents and her younger brother. Their adventures have been documented on such shows as DONNY & MARIE, TODAY, OPRAH, THE VIEW, and even CNN. She is the author of the book detailing their travel adventures, Headfirst Into America!

When it was time to settle the family into a home, there was no hesitation of their destination; Naples, Florida. Marlene joined the real estate industry with her husband and has enjoyed many years of great success. Sadly, her husband passed away in late 2006. Marlene has been succeeding in continuing what she and her husband had started; assembling a team of professionals working together to help their clients buy and sell Naples area real estate. Marlene was even featured on HGTV’s House Hunters as a Naples’ luxury lifestyle provider..

Marlene’s attention to detail, extensive knowledge of the real estate market, and her friendly, out-going personality keep her buyers and sellers coming back time and time again. Her greatest compliment is your referral of a friend or family. Please call Marlene direct at (239) 821-9046 or email to: MarleneGraham@earthlink.net
