MEET MARSHALL

LASTING LEADERSHIP DELIVERING RESULTS FOR OUR COMMUNITY

As a lifelong resident of Saco, Marshall has had the privilege of growing up in the quintessential ambiance of Saco living. He has cherished this city so much that, shortly after completing his four years of service in the Marine Corps, he chose to return to Saco to purchase his and his spouse's first home.
