What’s your favorite aspect of living in Marion County?
My favorite aspect of living in Marion County is the slow and easy lifestyle. There is something here for everyone and all of it is affordable. The fact that you can take almost any road and enjoy the beautiful countryside and horse farms doesn’t hurt either.
What keeps you passionate about real estate?
My customers keep me passionate about Real Estate. I love helping people move on with their lives by helping sellers sell an existing home at the best possible price, and finding buyers the best new place to call home at the best price. I even love selling land so my customers can start their dream from the ground up.
What do you do in your spare time?
I am a Full-Time, Professional Realtor, so I don’t have much spare time, but I enjoy doing almost anything with my family, which includes raising 2 grandkids and just being at home on my 20 acre horse farm whenever I am not helping sellers sell and buyers buy.
Cats, dogs, or neither?
Definitely Dogs! There is nothing like the unconditional love they give you, from their wagging tails, wet kisses, or just sitting quietly comforting each other, dogs have always been an important part of my life.
You’re a new addition to the crayon box. What color would you be and why?
I would be Emerald Green. I love the rich jewel tones and green is my favorite color, so I would just kick it up a notch and be dazzling.
“I just wanted to say you have a gem in Mary Durr. My husband, Lenny, and I were looking for a home for several months before we were referred to Mary and Showcase Properties by our lender. Mary made our search so much easier. We have somewhat unusual taste and our “must have” list was not the easiest thing to accommodate. Mary took it all in stride, was very patient and never let us give up or settle. We have been in our new home for 6 weeks now and we still love it and still love Mary. Thank you Showcase for making our home buying process easy. We would have lost our minds without Mary and you.”
