Your Real Estate Professional at Every Stage of Life

Mary has been a fulltime Realtor in the Des Moines area since 1993. Her dedication to her clients in helping them meet their real estate needs and goals is evident through the number of referrals she receives from past clients. Mary's ability to listen to what is being said (and not said) by her clients is key to guiding buyers and sellers through the challenges of today's real estate market. She enjoys working with both buyers and sellers. Since 2006, Mary has added an additional focus in her real estate business--that of working with the 55 and older age group. As a Senior Real Estate Specialist (SRES), she has received special training in working with the special needs, concerns and financial inplications of selling and buying real estate. She has provided essential information to this group of home sellers & buyers through classes she's taught through Des Moines Community Education, area churches and retirement communities. Mary is also a member of the Central Iowa Senior Education Network (CISEN), which provides free seminars on topics affecting our 55+ home owners. This 11-member group created the "Senior Life Expo" in 2014 with over 200 attendees. The events in 2015 and 2016 each drew over 300 people. The 2017 Senior LIfe Conference, "Making Every Connection Count," will be held October 23rd at the Prairie Meadows Event Center. "Mature Transitions Des Moines" is the name of Mary's seniors' real estate business. Her goal is to educate and to empower seniors and their adult children to make educated decisions affecting late-in-life moves. Her services include helping you find a 55+ residence, helping coordinate downsizing; providing move management resources and resettling support and of course, professional real estate services before, during and after the sale of your home. In addition to the CISEN group, Mary continues to educate herself on "all things senior" through her participation in the Healthcare Preferred Network (HPN) and the Elderly Consortium education network. Mary is a graduate of the University of Northern Iowa and was a Medical l Technologist before getting into sales. She and her husband owned their own sales franchise for 10 years before Mary entered the real estate profession. She and her husband have 2 daughters. In her spare time Mary stays involved with international adoption, playing piano and sewing. She is also active in the St Mary of Nazareth church choir, served on her parish Board of Education for 3 years. She has been actively involved in the annual parish auction from 2009 -2016 and chaired the auction in 2011 and 2012.
