Merle O'Connor, RE Salesperson
Real Estate Salesperson
I grew up in Niskayuna. As a child, my mother and I would take day trips to explore the area, so I am very familiar with all areas of the Capital District. I spent my summers in Averill Park on Glass Lake with my family. My Uncle, Mort Shulman, was a prominent figure as a real estate attorney and an all-around good guy in the community. I learned a lot from him.
I graduated from the University of South Florida where I studied Criminal Justice and Social Sciences. Later in my career I began teaching elementary aged children in Teach for America. As rewarding as it was to work with at-risk kids, I found my real passion to be in real estate where I help people from all walks-of-life.
I have spent my life doing a wide range of volunteer activities including working with programs like MLK Saratoga, Backstretch for Saratoga Race Course, and creating a program connecting Greenfield Elementary School students with Wesley Nursing Home Residents. I also spent many hours volunteering in my children’s’ classrooms, sports activities, and theatre productions.
The core of my value system is in helping other people which is why the real estate industry is the perfect fit for me. I really love assisting people with their home buying and selling needs.
