at Vance Realty Group
Born in Orange County and raised on Balboa Island, it is only natural that Marlys Vance followed in her Mothers footsteps in the Real Estate business, it is evident that integrity prevails. Who better to share the lifestyle of Newport Beach then someone with firsthand experience. Everything from building sandcastles in her front patio as a child to water-skiing in the back bay at lunchtime in high school, spending weekends sailing to Catalina on a Schock 22 with her father and winters skiing in Big Bear. Marlys started her working career on Balboa Island in retail (including selling donuts at the famous “Dads Donuts”). After helping to operate a restaurant in St. Thomas in the Virgin Islands she returned home to manage the front office of a well known landscape architect firm. In 1982 Marlys decided to join her Mother’s office in sharing the joy of this wonderful location, both selling and leasing property on Balboa Island and in Orange County. Since then, Marlys has achieved her Brokers license and continues to maintain the family business, specializing in sales, leases, vacation rentals and property management.
