Chief Executive Officer
Margherita Verani is a results-oriented real estate professional with more than 40 years of industry experience. She graduated from the University of New Hampshire with a degree in Social Services and continued her education by earning a Masters Degree in Business. Margherita entered the real estate world at a time when it was a primarily male-dominated industry, but knew she wanted to make it a life-long career. She worked tirelessly at perfecting her craft, making it a priority to continue her education whenever possible, taking courses from management to architecture, and everything in between. During that time she was able to rise through the ranks, growing from an agent to eventually take ownership of the company in 1979, and being named Chief Executive Officer (CEO).
Throughout her real estate career, Margherita has worn many hats, and that type of broad experience has given her an in-depth knowledge of all areas of real estate including residential, REO (bank owned), new construction sales, and marketing development. It has also given her a great understanding of every role within an organization, and how each plays an integral part in the success of the business. Margherita strives for a “we” environment, not a “me” environment, and with that mantra in mind, she has been able to expand from a brokerage of 5 agents to over 650 in more than 20 offices and appointment centers across NH, MA, ME, and VT.
Under her leadership, Verani Realty has consistently ranked in the top 40 offices in the network during Verani’s 17 year affiliation with Prudential. Now, as a franchise of Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices, Verani Realty has ranked for the past several years in the top 25 franchises in the network. In 2019, Margherita achieved the Outstanding Women in Business award by NH Business Review. An award that recognizes the successes and achievements of women who have had a lasting impact on New Hampshire’s business community as leaders and role models. Today, Margherita focuses on continuing to expand Verani’s presence throughout New England as well as guiding some of the industry’s top producers.
