Mary joined @properties and the LAKE Group in 2013. Before joining the team, Mary owned a home decor & clothing boutique in her hometown Sarasota, FL. She enjoyed a collaborative relationship working with clients to create one-of-a-kind garments and decorative pieces for their homes. Previously, she attended the prestigious American Musical and Dramatic Academy in New York where she performed on stage and in various films.
Upon moving to Chicago, she fell in love with real estate while searching for her own home. Learning the real estate market and exploring the city quickly became her passion. Taking her experience in working with clients to meet their individual needs, she approaches real estate with the same concierge-level service and collaborative spirit. After over four years at @properties and on Lance Kirshner's team, her function has quickly evolved from a supportive role to a seasoned real estate expert, able to jump in wherever help is needed. Specializing in first-time home purchases, Mary truly enjoys the challenge and excitement that comes with helping clients find their starter dream home and navigate the purchase process armed with knowledge.
Currently Mary resides in the Irving Park neighborhood with her husband and dog. In her spare time she enjoys walking to Horner Park, discovering new delicious restaurants, and reading a good book.
