As a Senior Interior Designer, Marybeth designs homes with finishes that entice potential tenants to quickly lease a property in a modern, fast-paced real estate environment. Marybeth works closely with her design team, architects, project managers and contractors to oversee projects from start to finish. During her tenure, Marybeth has restored life to several historically landmarked brownstones in Brooklyn and Hudson County. As a designer with Dixon Projects, she has gained in-depth experience in various facets of design, specifically excelling in kitchen and bathroom design. Marybeth visits renovation sites almost daily to communicate with and advise onsite contractors throughout the entire duration of a project’s life cycle.
“What makes real estate truly special is how each property has its own personality. During the initial walkthrough, you get a sense of the voice the house will have. It’s really cool as a designer to be able to help a house realize its full potential before it becomes someone’s home.”
As Dixon’s first Interior Designer acting under the Creative Director, Marybeth has had the privilege to watch the team and company grow at a rapid pace. One of Marybeth’s more notable projects is Dixon Advisory’s Manhattan office – a space sophisticated enough to attract investors, but playful enough to wake up employees’ minds every day. “Rian Smith and I collaboratively designed this entire office. I think I speak for the both of us when I say it’s the project we’re most proud of.”
Marybeth graduated from New Jersey Institute of Technology as a double major in Architectural Design and Theater Technologies with a specialization in Set Design. Working as a costume and set designer on multiple shows per year all through college, Marybeth was able to showcase her creativity while refining her design skills. Outside of work, Marybeth enjoys spending time with her dog, reading and exploring parks around Jersey City.
