BACKGROUND

Marguerite Defrance holds dual citizenships in both France and the United States. 

In Paris she founded Studio MDF, a company that designed marketing tools and advertisements for international companies. As president of her own company, she became expert in negotiations with suppliers and clients for the benefit of both her clients and her own company.

She has traveled around the world with her husband for business purposes, meeting international contacts. As licensed private pilots, they would fly across Florida, they made the decision to move there full time. They started the citizenship process in 2008, and happily became American citizens in 2014.

Marguerite left her Parisian company, and inspired by the beautiful Florida landscape and her love of fine art, started painting. Her paintings were exhibited in Beaux-Art Miami Art Show, Boca Raton Museum Art Show, and in Paris.

She also became aware of how Miami was growing. She saw how the people in her own community, who came from many different countries and from all over the United States, loved the lifestyle they were now living.

She started to investigate impressive real estate projects offering luxurious amenities and thought that she could apply her artistic eye and negotiating talents into introducing the lifestyle she loved to future residents. 

Beside the new constructions, the inventory of pre-owned homes also provides the lifestyle that Florida is known for. 

After receiving her Florida real estate license, Marguerite joined EWM Realty International, Christie's exclusive affiliate. Their reach extends beyond our local market to across the globe with our affiliation with Leading Real Estate Companies of the World TM.

Marguerite’s mission is to establish the same strong relationships as she did as president of her own company in Paris. Her professionalism and work ethic make all her transactions seem effortless. Her clients know that everything will be taken care of when working with Marguerite Defrance.

Living in South Florida means living in the middle of palm trees and bougainvilleas, sharing tropical cityscapes with parrots, egrets, turtledoves and pelicans, breathing the fresh ocean air, and being warm and comfortable throughout the year.
