Mary comes to Advon with a military and financial background. Born and raised in Italy, she decided to come to the United States to attend college.
While completing her political science degree she also attended Reserve Training Officer Corps, ROTC, which led her to become an officer in the United States Air Force. After separating from the service she continued as a part of the the Air Force by marrying Rob, a C-17 pilot whom she met while serving in Tacoma, WA at McChord Air Force Base. She then became an investment advisor at Morgan Stanley and then at Charles Schwab. Her strongest asset remains managing clients’ relationships in good times and bad times. Mary builds solid foundations based on trust and honesty.
Mary believes that the same philosophy she utilized as a strong investment advisor absolutely applies to real estate. She will win your trust with her candor and passion! If there were one word defining Mary it would be “ Reliability.” She will be your advocate and reliable leader, helping to navigate you through the process of buying and selling your home.
Her deep experience in real estate comes from moving many times while supporting her husband’s career. Buying and selling, often times while husband was deployed or in training. The Air Force brought Mary and her family to Northern Virginia 5 years ago where she could call Alexandria their final home.
When she is not scoping her Alexandria neighborhood while walking her dog Chubby (an Italian shepherd), she is busy in the kitchen cooking healthy meals for her family.
