Name: Marvin Superville

How long in Charlotte: 11 months
Occupation: Real estate broker
Hobbies: Running, basketball, reading, spending time with my family
What brought you here? We moved to Charlotte because my family loved the city when we visited and there were great job prospects here. I was a former assistant principal and most recently a district technology director for the NYC Office of Adult and Continuing Education and NYC Dept. of Education for the past 19 years. My average commute time was 1 1/2 to 2 hours each way daily.
We wanted to move from NYC and looked at several cities that were on our short list: Charlotte, Atlanta, Boston, Dallas, Nashville and Austin. I have always loved real estate and transitioned to this new career.
What do you like best about Charlotte? The weather, friendly people, short commute times
What do you like least about Charlotte? Falling trees! Tress fall here all the time at the slightest gust of wind.
How do you hope to get involved in the community? I currently volunteer at Second Harvest Food Bank of Metrolina whenever I can. I am also looking to get involved in volunteering at local schools.
What’s been your most memorable moment since moving here? The past winter was warm.
