Spotlight on Business – Meryl Manthey, Independent Realtor

The Levittown Chamber of Commerce would like to introduce one of our newest members, Meryl Manthey, who is an independent Realtor with JoAnn Cilla Real Estate, a boutique/small business headquartered in Lindenhurst. Joann Cilla Real Estate serves Nassau, Suffolk, Queens & Brooklyn. 


Manthey, being active in the business for 24 years with obtaining her license in 1989, was inspired by when she herself was looking for a home. She wasn’t impressed with the service she received and felt she could do much better for clients.


Manthey is a resident of Levittown. She has spent the last 10 years being a caregiver for her now departed two sisters and her mother. Currently single, with her remaining sister living in Oak Beach & a nephew living in Levittown for whom she shares in assuring his well being since his mom has passed.


Although, not having served personally in the military, she is an Army brat. Born on a base in Japan and from there, Manthey lived in Monterey, CA, then off to Fort Bragg, NC and arrived to the area growing up in a Levitt home in Wantagh, within the USFD School District #5.  Yes, she commented, she attended the little schoolhouse on Jerusalem Ave where they used to tap the trees for maple syrup!

Manthey’s corporate background in selling and marketing years ago to hi tech in its heyday in the San Francisco Bay Area, and partnering with major firms to accomplish a common goal has helped lay the groundwork for her career as a realtor.

 Manthey’s  mission statement is as follows… “ Globally connected, locally grown – your  personal trusted Realtor Partner.  My business goals are to serve & support my local community and businesses, with a focus on the military/Veterans, Seniors, first time homebuyers, & those in need of relocation, hoping, that in doing so, they will support me when it comes to their real estate needs. I completely understand the definition of partnering and my duty to the client as the utmost goal & have all the necessary connections to support that effort! ”

Manthey likes to golf, bowl, volunteer, plan events and enjoys decorating and volunteering with AARP to advocate for the needs of the 50+ community. In addition, she loves attending concerts, volunteers as a board member of her co-op and cat – sits for her sis in Oak Beach.
