The HYPE Q&A: Anya Marmuscak
July 9th, 2019
By Sarah Hunter

As the Vice President of Office Tenant Representation at commercial real estate services firm JLL, Anya Marmuscak is responsible for helping advise firms on their real estate portfolios in the Houston area. With over 12 years of experience in the industry, she brings persistence, detail-orientation, and relentless energy to the table to help achieve her client’s objectives. Her best career advice? “Take the time to consider all the options and remain open to new opportunities.”

At any given moment you might find Anya negotiating for a client, working out, attending events around Houston or cheering on the Florida State Seminoles. She holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Multinational Business Operations from Florida State, where she graduated magna cum laude, and a Master of Business Administration with a concentration in Finance from The University of Saint Thomas.

Important Fact: 

Anya’s life motto (which she borrowed from Winston Churchill): We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give. 

If given the chance would you clone yourself? Why?

No! That would go against one of my favorite quotes from Oscar Wilde: “Be yourself, everyone else is already taken “

Think back to…. let’s say age 3 or 4… What did you want to be when you grew up and are you doing it now? 

Lawyer. No, definitely didn’t even know what commercial real estate was! Although many days I feel like I’m a lawyer and always negotiating! I love people and wanted to be in a career where I was out meeting and helping  people and not stuck  behind a desk, computer or in a courtroom

What was your High School Stereotype? 

Social butterfly.

Motto you live by? 

Work hard, play hard!

Pet peeve?

Excuses.
