"My mission is to guide clients with calming, expert guidance, creating an enjoyable experience and a roadmap to their real estate success."
With a builder for a father and a passion for real estate, it was a natural fit for Mary Kay Brunner-Dasse to earn her real estate license in 1989. Mary Kay possesses a true love for the industry, whether it is negotiating a deal or searching through homes to find the right fit for her clients. She also enjoys the personal connection and longstanding friendships formed with individuals she's worked with over the years.

A resident of Lake Forest for 25 years, Mary Kay is an expert in the area.

She is also well-versed on the North Shore and surrounding areas.
An industry veteran, Mary Kay has won numerous awards during her real estate tenure. Early years in the business quickly earned her "most improved" accolades, and she is now recognized for her sales volume almost every year. She has placed in the top 3% of agents, and has won the Team Spirit Award for her desire to help others. A chosen member of the Grievance Committee of the North Shore Board (reviewing ethics complaints and arbitrations), doing things the right way has always been important to Mary Kay, earning her the respect of her clients as well as other agents.
Hardworking and active in the real estate community, Mary Kay makes it a point to keep her finger on the pulse of what is going on in the market. Professional and personable, she always goes the extra mile to make the process as easy as possible so that her clients find success.
