Mary Shell




I have been in the world of real estate for over 35 years, growing up in a family firm with a background of working with buyers and sellers, property management and investment properties. I embrace the old-school principles of working diligently to put my clients needs first and treating each transaction as if it is my own. I utilize my additional experience in the technology field and in managing an accounting firm for many years to further benefit my clients. This experience allows me to effectively market properties using all of the latest platforms and to thoughtfully consider all the financial aspects of each transaction on both the buyer and seller side. As a life-long equestrian horse breeder, and one who has personally engaged in farm design and build, I have a unique insight to the needs of those seeking equestrian facilities, farms and land. Real estate is my passion and I enjoy the privilege of helping my clients reach their goals.

Mary’s Reviews

Mary Shell is the most professional real estate person I have ever worked with. She knows the business from every angle and although she was working for me as a buyers agent she kept multiple sellers agents, inspectors, and the mortgage company on the straight and narrow as we worked through several properties and encountered many problems in our search for the right property. Mary always seemed to be at the other end of the phone with the right attitude and if she didn’t know the answer, which was rare, she knew where to get the answer. Mary made our search for a new home a personal goal to find us the right home. If I ever need real estate services again and Mary is still available I will certainly use her again, and I would highly recommend her to anyone else!
