About Me

Marie-Theres Franke has found many similarities between her roots in the arts and fashion industry and her career in residential real estate sales. Fundamentally, both are about helping clients clarify their vision of what they are looking for and then putting together and delivering on a plan of action that will help them achieve it.

Born in Germany, Marie-Theres grew up in Charleston, S.C. After studying French and literature at the College of Charleston, she returned to Europe to complete her degree at the Universite Paris-Sorbonne. She is fluent in both French and German, and conversational in Spanish.

After graduation, Marie-Theres moved to New York City and she and her husband settled in Brooklyn's Windsor Terrace. She began her career in music production. And her involvement in the fashion-focused art collective threeASFOUR led her into the fashion industry, where she became an in-demand freelance producer for fashion shows and other events.

Having always been active in her Windsor Terrace neighborhood, Marie-Theres considered the move into real estate a natural extension of her ongoing efforts to serve and improve that community. She met Rebekah Carver, one of the co-founders of Brooklyn Hearth Realty Ltd. and decided to join the firm, attracted by the quality of the people as well as the fact that the company was both women-led and shared her commitment to building better communities.

Fostered from years of producing fashion events, Marie-Theres' exceptional organizational skills and attention-to-detail have proven instrumental in her real estate career. And her sense of staging, drawn from both the fashion and art worlds, has also been useful in helping clients prepare their homes for sale. But it's her approachable, relaxed personality that has really distinguished her from the competition.

She has since branched out beyond Windsor Terrace, helping clients buy and sell homes in Ditmas Park, Kensington, Park Slope, Prospect-Lefferts Garden, and Prospect Park South. Given her background, she frequently works with people in the creative industries - art, fashion, music, etc. - as well as international transplants. She also works with a lot of families and those looking to start a family.

Along with her Brooklyn Hearth colleagues, Marie-Theres joined Douglas Elliman in early 2017, becoming part of the largest brokerage in the New York Metropolitan area and the fourth largest residential real estate company nationwide. She has embraced the firm's vast array of tools and resources to strengthen her skill set. And she remains committed to serving her clients and continuing to grow and nurture her Windsor Terrace community.
