Marianne Shannon is our new Senior Director of Project Development and leads the design department at DiFabion Remodeling. Born and bred in Buffalo, NY, Marianne grew up in a remodeling family. She describes herself as having “remodeling in her blood” with some of her earliest memories of her dad teaching her the tricks of the trade on the job site. After graduating from design school in 1994, she relocated to NYC where she continued working on high-end residential design projects before moving down to Charlotte, NC in 2003. Since relocating to Charlotte, she’s continued to hone her design and remodeling skills, winning numerous NARI awards within the area. When she’s not helping clients design their dream homes, Marianne enjoys tackling her own projects around the house – her latest consisted of mixing and installing an 800-square-foot decorative concrete patio. Marianne loves spending as much time as she can outdoors hiking and gardening with her son and daughter, practicing Muay Thai with her husband, and cooking up a storm for her family and friends!
