2021 Real Estate Awards Honoree: Marcie Gregorio

Marcie Gregorio is the owner and founder of Worldwide Title. She is a mom of an amazing 7-year old girl (Charlotte). She is the first generation daughter of parents from Portugal. She was born and raised in New Jersey into the family business of restaurants and real estate. Entrepreneurship flows through my blood. She speaks three languages and worked in the real estate legal industry for 20 years that led her to open Worldwide Title at end of November 2017. Her knowledge, experience and love to serve are unmatched. She is a strong negotiator and verbal communicator with driven results. In four short years, Worldwide Title has become a leading title provider and “go-to” guru for closings and making things happen attitude! Realtors love that! And so do she.

Favorite Quote: “You get what you give.”

What challenges have you faced in your career, and how did you overcome them? The biggest challenge is obscurity. You can be the best at what you do, but if no one knows you, what good are you? I have been in the real estate industry behind the scenes for decades, sharpening my skills, building my talents, closing thousands of real estate transactions. Each moment and every detail led me to open Worldwide Title. One of the steps I took to overcome obscurity, Networking! In my first year, I personally met 1,500 people! Exhausting! I was a one-man show! But this was not enough! I took on webinars, speaking engagements, training classes for real estate agents, not enough! I sought out top real estate agents, delivered exceptional service as promised, and landed huge transactions that led me to media outlets and the rest is history! Entrepreneurship is a daily grind! Never sleep on your clients!

What has been the most monumental moment of your career thus far? To actually have a running business! This is a dream! I am so passionate and committed to everything I do. I pride myself on my nature of a love to serve mentally, one that extends and embodies our office culture. We are in the service industry, and I have a deep understanding that without my real estate agents doing what they do best, there is no me/title!

When in 2020 did you realize that something major was happening in South Florida Real Estate? I never lost hope here; one way or another, the real estate market would boom. I was confident that a lot of people were sitting on cash, waiting for the right opportunity to reap the rewards! If anything, I got more aggressive with my media platforms, went overboard with motivational classes for agents and keep making sure their pipeline was always on track!

BIOGRAPHY

Drew Limsky joined Lifestyle Media Group in August 2020 as Editor-in-Chief of South Florida Business & Wealth. His first issue of SFBW, October 2020, heralded a reimagined structure, with new content categories and a slew of fresh visual themes. “As sort of a cross between Forbes and Robb Report, with a dash of GQ and Vogue,” Limsky says, “SFBW reflects South Florida’s increasingly sophisticated and dynamic business and cultural landscape.”

Limsky, an avid traveler, swimmer and film buff who holds a law degree and Ph.D. from New York University, likes to say, “I’m a doctor, but I can’t operate—except on your brand.” He wrote his dissertation on the nonfiction work of Joan Didion. Prior to that, Limsky received his B.A. in English, summa cum laude, from Emory University and earned his M.A. in literature at American University in connection with a Masters Scholar Award fellowship.

Limsky came to SFBW at the apex of a storied career in journalism and publishing that includes six previous lead editorial roles, including for some of the world’s best-known brands. He served as global editor-in-chief of Lexus magazine, founding editor-in-chief of custom lifestyle magazines for Cadillac and Holland America Line, and was the founding editor-in-chief of Modern Luxury Interiors South Florida. He also was the executive editor for B2B magazines for Acura and Honda Financial Services, and he served as travel editor for Conde Nast. Magazines under Limsky’s editorship have garnered more than 75 industry awards.

He has also written for many of the country’s top newspapers and magazines, including The New York Times, Washington Post, Los Angeles Times, Miami Herald, Boston Globe, USA Today, Worth, Robb Report, Afar, Time Out New York, National Geographic Traveler, Men’s Journal, Ritz-Carlton, Elite Traveler, Florida Design, Metropolis and Architectural Digest Mexico. His other clients have included Four Seasons, Acqualina Resort & Residences, Yahoo!, American Airlines, Wynn, Douglas Elliman and Corcoran. As an adjunct assistant professor, Limsky has taught journalism, film and creative writing at the City University of New York, Pace University, American University and other colleges.
