From the May 26th, 2010 edition of "The Business News" (Green Bay, WI): Marina Solo is a shining example of the Great American Success Story. Originally from Russia, she moved to the United States in 1995 to pursue her dream of a better life for herself and her son, Alex. Although she had trained professionally as a chef in Russia, she couldn't land a chef's job in the United States because she arrived not knowing English. That didn't stop Solo; she began working as a dishwasher amd then moved up to the role of a cook. Within five years, she taught herself English and decided to relocate to Green Bay. She moved here in June 2000 and reassessed where she wanted to go with her career. She made real estate a passion because she wanted to work in a role where she could help as many peopl as possible realize their dreams. In Russia, owning a home is a dream for most people; she knew that it was a possibility for many more people in the United States. So, Solo began her real estate career with a local company and after nearly six years, launched Marina Solo Real Estate Group.
Since earning her real estate license, Solo has personally sold more than 1,000 homes in the greater Green Bay area. She is driven, determined and lives by a business philosophy based on building relationships one person at a time. Solo is well known in the real estate community as a vibrant, energetic whirlwind of a small business owner - and for her success, brokering more than $140 million in residential real estate. She still finds the greatest satisfaction in guiding individuals and families through one of the largest financial decisions - and emotional undertakings - of their lives: buying a home.
Solo has high hopes for growing her company in the coming years. Her drive and determination are founded on the core belief that anyone can succeed in America. That determination extends to her staff, who she mentors through training opportunities, networking events, technologies, etc.
