Mary Anne says, "The Luxury Market, the Second Home market, and the International market are all converging and I have my specialists certification in all three of these markets. This lights my fire, and I really enjoy working and speaking on these topics. Since I have personally owned, sold, rehabbed, or currently own 11second homes, and a large multi-familyapartment complex,and with my education that I have received, and that I am a baby-boomer with many boomer friends and my daughter's friends that I have helped to purchase second homes/rental homes/investment homes,I believe that I can walk the talk about marketing, purchasing, selling, and investing in this market. One of her favorite presentations is on 'Investing in Second Homes-Know Your Exit Strategies'.

Known for her sense of humor and her enthusiasm and positive attitude, she encourages and motivates her audiences.
