Soon after marrying and settling in Manhattan, Marie-Laure and her family began spending weekends and summers in Millbrook. After becoming a full-time resident in the early 1990s, Marie-Laure worked as a manager at Millbrook Vineyards, putting her love of grapes and marketing talent to work in the scenic setting of Dutchess County.
Since moving north to Stanfordville, Marie-Laure has been involved with staging, redesigning, and decorating houses in Dutchess County, recently melding all of her interests in renovating two houses in the Burgundy region of France. She loves to call Dutchess County her home and welcomes residents and non-residents alike to contact her about selling, purchasing, or renting their next home. Marie Laure supports the Dutchess Land Conservancy and other non-profits. She is fluent in French, Spanish, and English.
