Mary at Home:
Where are you from?
I enjoyed a great childhood in Rocky River, went to Rocky River High School and Miami University. I’ve lived in Westlake for the last 23 years.
What are your hobbies outside of work?
I volunteer at my church, enjoy a great CrossFit community and have a huge family that keeps me busy!
What is your favorite restaurant?
I love Dante in Tremont and AJ’s Urban Grill in Westlake
One place you’d visit over and over again?
If it weren’t so far – Maui, Hawaii
What is your favorite type of architecture/building style or home style?
I love all the unique neighborhoods in our market and the homes are true to the area they are located. I don’t have one favorite!
Mary at Work:
What is your favorite thing about working in Real Estate?
The PEOPLE! I love meeting, helping and working with so many different and incredible people and feel blessed to be a part of a very important family decision.
What are the top pieces of advice you’d give your clients, who are either buying or selling?
Work with a full-service, full-time agent who represents YOU. Pocket listings (not listing your home on the MLS) help the agent, but cost the seller money.
What are a few things people misunderstand about real estate?
Agency relationship and how important it is to hire an agent who represents the client and not another party or their own broker.
What’s the most common issue or problem you face or come across as a real estate agent?
Communication is so important – between me and the client, other agent and all the parties involved. Poor communication is biggest challenge to a smooth deal.
What is the strangest/scariest/funniest thing you’ve ever experienced on a showing?
A seller asleep in his bedroom!
