Currently a senior at Clarke Central High School, Lily Marcus was inspired by her interest in real estate to seek an internship with 3tree Realty for the 20-21 school year. Armed with her goal to gain knowledge about the real estate business, Lily hopes to learn all she can about this interesting and challenging profession in anticipation that she can decide if it’s something she wants to pursue in the future and working at 3tree Realty, a female-owned company, seems like the perfect venue to explore her dreams.

Lily moved to Athens from Tampa, Florida with her family in 2009, where she attended Barrow Elementary School, Clarke Middle School, and Clarke Central High School. While academics are her top priority, she still makes time for other hobbies like playing tennis on the CCHS tennis team (leisurely) or spending time with friends. She has maintained an A-average throughout high school and hopes to continue that in college. Lily is a member of the National Honors Society and Miracle Club (a club that raises money for Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta). After high school, Lily hopes to travel out of the country, hopefully, Italy or Greece (those being at the top of her list!) and attend the University of Georgia (her top pick, of course. Go DAWGS).

Lily also believes that in order to be successful in life, it is especially important to be kind to everyone, whether or not they are kind to you. This has helped her throughout her life as a very important skill regardless of your pursuits. Plus, it’s just the right thing to do.  

Invaluable in the office, Lily dives into everything that is given to her whether it’s running errands, entering data, organizing files, or just hanging with Nip, the office dog. 3tree Realty is thrilled to have such a strong and inspiring young woman on our team. If you see Lily out delivering our fliers, dropping off closing gifts, or picking up mail at the PO Box, please give her the kindness and encouragement she would undoubtedly give you. She’s one of the Leaves of Our Tree.
