RealEstateGuru-TanyaMarchiol

Real Estate Guru Tanya Marchiol Draws On Athletic Background

When athletes suffer catastrophic injuries, it’s usually a game changer. Real estate guru Tanya Marchiol — a collegiate volleyball star who played professionally in Italy — was no exception.

“I was working as a golf cart girl, trying to figure out what to do with my life,” Tanya Marchiol recalls. “One day, the cart flipped and crushed my ankle. I ended up in the hospital for six months, and doctors had to completely reconstruct my leg.”

To help her daughter pass the time and give her some direction while she was on bed rest, Marchiol’s mother gave her some real estate books to read, and a passion was born.
“I brought everything I learned playing volleyball — work ethic, teamwork, problem-solving skills — to real estate,” Marchiol says.

It paid off. After an agonizing six months of surgeries, Marchiol took her real estate exam and started buying and selling properties. Her neighbor at the time, Justin Lucas of the Arizona Cardinals, heard about what she was doing and asked for her help. That year, he bought 13 houses and Marchiol’s company — Phoenix-based TEAM Investments — was born. Marchiol developed a system for educating and empowering athletes — including quarterback Donovan McNabb, former ASU and Miami Heat star Eddie House, and baseball star Bengie Molina — to intelligently handle their financial and business matters.

“No one was really teaching athletes how to use real estate in their portfolios to create income,” Marchiol says. “Most athletes — particularly football players who have an average professional career of three years — will have to do something when they are done playing. I can help them invest in a way that they know they’re going to have an extra $10,000 a month coming in if they get hurt or their career comes to an end.”

It’s not just athletes who have benefited from Marchiol’s advice and guidance. Marchiol teaches entrepreneurs, investors and individuals how to not only maintain their current financial status but also create generational wealth. Her expertise has led to appearances on the NFL Network, Fox News, CNN, FOX Business News, and most recently as a recurring personality on HGTV.

“As a woman who grew up in a family of powerful men, I know what it takes to walk into a room, command respect and get the deal done,” Marchiol says. “Women need to understand the power that they have. They need to believe in themselves and create an air of confidence. When they do that, being a woman becomes an asset in any industry you want to tackle.”
