Why Choose Mary Wallace as Your Realtor?
When the going gets tough, the tough get going and that's just what I did...
The past five years have been difficult for most sellers due to unfavorable market conditions. Despite the uncontrollable changes happening in the real estate market, I decided to dedicate myself to creating a strategic plan to help my clients sell their homes. My program works and in 2012, I sold 213 properties. This happened because as the market changed, so did I. I looked for new ways to market, stage, photograph and negotiate my listings. I utilize the most comprehensive weekly seller update program in our area.
I work incredibly hard for my clients by providing them with an in-depth knowledge of the real estate market, custom staging plan, wide angle high definition photographs, newspaper advertising, virtual tours, full color brochures, a full time office staff to provide clients with the service they deserve, weekly in depth updates and advertising on over 35 popular real estate websites -- all of which most Realtors cannot or are unwilling to offer to their clients.
Each Realtor varies considerably in terms of service and results. Sellers frequently tell me how they interviewed other agents who only sold a few homes in the past year. Realtors vary based on marketing skills, technological expertise, knowledge of areas, quality of service to clients, and willingness to spend time as well as money in order to market your home correctly. Every Realtor is not the same and the difference could mean an extra $10,000 in your pocket. Choose wisely and give me a call at 708-203-1412 to set up a free consultation.
Your home and financial future is important. You would not pick a doctor to do surgery on you just because you know them or they are a friend of the family. When choosing someone to help you with your home choose someone with a proven track record of results even during the difficult times. Let me help you sell your home today.

Oak Lawn Park District Commissioner, 2005-present
I am a lifelong resident of Oak Lawn. I've been a Realtor with Coldwell Banker since June of 2003. By 2004 I was awarded "Rookie of the Year" for the Coldwell Banker South and West Region with over 6.2 Million in closed sales and 32 properties sold. Prior to this I was completing my Bachelor's degree at Southern Illinois University in Carbondale and beginning a Master's Degree in Counseling that I completed in 2006. When I decided to put my talent toward real estate, I chose Coldwell Banker due to their market dominance in the area along with their professional standards and the fact that they are a well known and respected company.
By combining my professional and educational experience with my profound determination to exceed client expectations, I quickly became one of the top agents at Coldwell Banker. From 2009 to present, thanks to my wonderful clients, I was able to keep my rank as a Top Producing agent in my office and at Coldwell Banker south Chicagoland region. In the past 7 years I have been able to sell over 560 properties totaling close to 88 million dollars in closed volume! In 2008-2012 I also earned the title at the #1 Realtor in Oak Lawn, #1 Realtor in Burbank for 2011, and the #1 Realtor in Hometown for 2009 and 2010 with the most closed single family properties according to MLS data.
While I’m certainly proud of my professional performance and association with Coldwell Banker, I’m most proud of -and grateful for - the numerous referrals I’ve received and the many personal relationships I’ve built through my role as a trusted advisor.
