MaryKay’s Story

I was raised in a tiny Midwestern town, the fourth child born to Bill and Della. One of their greatest legacies was to leave an incredibly strong work ethic to their five children.

My life changed dramatically at age 19 when my mother suddenly passed away. It left me to help raise my 9 year old brother, Jim. I believe this life event helped nurture in me an extreme compassion for others in need. As a mother, I am honored to have raised three daughters with the same strength.

I’ve worked as a paralegal, a seamstress, a retail sales clerk and now in real estate. For the past 25 years, I’ve also been a church youth leader focusing on teens. I’ve also joyfully served in other ministries, like Hospice; compelled to serve people in God’s name. It’s with the same heart I serve our real estate clients.

As a professional stager, I have an eye for style, color and furniture placement which creates an atmosphere to help homes selling faster and for a better price. When preparing to sell your home, my goal is to have it stand out from the competition. As I like to say, “make it the shiniest apple in the bunch.” It can include how to de-clutter and organize your home, as well as ideas for furniture placement and potential renovation projects.

If you are a buyer, our goal is to find a home reflecting your stage in life, for the best price, in a great location and a perfect match for your hearts’ desires.

Dan and I have worked hard to establish a reputation of integrity by serving our clients with honesty, hard work and a keen eye to detail. Our goal is to make the selling or, buying process as smooth and enjoyable as possible. With over 30 years of combined experience, we are gratified by our clients’ satisfaction and blessed by their kind words of testimony.
