Mary Beth has had an accomplished and diverse professional background in Chicago. Her love of the city and passion for helping people realize their ideal lifestyle prompted Mary Beth to join @properties and focus on residential sales. Her prior role was as a founding principal of Elysian Development Group and Managing Partner/Chief Brand Officer for the Elysian Hotel Company, the management and development companies responsible for the success of the Elysian Hotel & Private Residences (now the Waldorf Astoria Chicago).
