Gracik Makinney Real Estate Group is thrilled to announce the addition of Terence Marable to our Elmhurst-based @Properties group. No newcomer to the real estate business, Terence literally grew up in the industry through his mother, a 30-year agent.

He brings a wealth of experience to his role as a realtor. He has worked extensively in sales and marketing as a pharmaceutical sales and medical device sales representative before transitioning into the financial services industry as a Certified Financial Planner. As a CFP he gained a reputation for his professionalism and diligence, while earning accolades from his clients for his attentiveness and attention to detail.

But it wasn’t until Terence himself became a real estate investor in early 2012 that he discovered not only his affinity but also his passion for the business. He has worked on both the buying and selling side of many residential real estate transactions, exposing him to many of the sides and nuances of the process.

Terence was raised in the south suburbs, and graduated from Marian Catholic High School before attending the University of Illinois at Champaign-Urbana on a football scholarship. As a NCAA Division 1 student athlete, he learned the meaning of hard work, self-discipline and dedication, skills which he continues to bring to every business day.

He prides himself on being a great listener and recognizes that for most people buying a home will be the single largest purchase they will make. As such, he is committed to providing each of his clients with an exceptional experience.

Terence and his wife Julie have been married ten years and have three children, ages 6, 4 and 1. After 15 years of city living, they moved to the suburbs 3 ½ years ago and spend their free time playing with their kids, watching the latest movies, eating out, and enjoying a round of golf.
