Meet Marjorie Adam, Board Member
Marjorie Adam has served as a Piedmont Housing Alliance board member since 2015. Marjorie grew up in the Charlottesville area, and within a few years of graduating from college in Pennsylvania, found herself returning to her wonderful home town. Her mother, a realtor, welcomed her as an assistant in her business. That was more than 20 years ago – several years later, Marjorie’s brother joined the team as well.
From her many years working in real estate, Marjorie was familiar with the services that Piedmont Housing provides to the community, particularly down-payment assistance, educational programs, and the Workforce Housing Fund administered by Piedmont Housing for the Charlottesville Area Association of Realtors (CAAR). Marjorie’s real estate office is also located on Garrett Street, right near Friendship Court, and she appreciates Piedmont Housing’s commitment to supporting centrally located affordable housing. Marjorie says “it is a great joy to help find someone their first home or to help a family with life changes,” and this is what she sees Piedmont Housing doing every day through its service to the community.
In addition to her work for Piedmont Housing, Marjorie also serves as a board member for the Charlottesville Scholarship Program, and has served on the board of CAAR, as membership co-chair of Women United, and as president of McIntire Little League. She and her husband, Philippe, have two children – a son, who is an avid baseball player, and a daughter who plans to study art at the Maryland Institute College of Art, following her graduation from high school. Marjorie holds a bachelor’s degree, in journalism, from Susquehanna University.
