Meet Mary Jane

Thinking outside the box is what I do best!

I’ve always had a passion to make a difference in the lives of others, and real estate fuels that fire. With 20+ years of experience in everything from finance to construction to health... I am a strategizer and visualizer.

After years as a financial consultant to first-time homebuyers, many of whom didn’t know that a mortgage was even an option for them, I fell in love with this work and found my calling. Consistently sitting down with the people who never even considered that they could be homeowners, then mapping out their path for them, had a huge impact on me. I began to see how working in real estate could truly help my neighbors realize their dreams.

Then it happened. The closer I got to people during their financial planning, sometimes taking months to create a solid plan and becoming friends in the process, the less they wanted to entrust their newfound future with a real estate agent, someone who didn’t know them the way that I did. After working with a firm for over a year, it became clear to me that the hard-lined sales approach to real estate was not my way. And if I was to go down this path, I was going to do it the only way I knew how, and that is by being myself: by putting the needs of my clients first and trusting my instincts rather than years of real estate traditions. I vowed to simply be myself in everything that I do.

It’s this experience and active listening that steered me towards a specialized, concierge method of real estate. I offer a full-service approach that removes the overwhelming nature of buying or selling a home. Focusing on my clients helps me understand how I can help beyond listing and showing a home. Sometimes you need a masterful photographer and videographer; I can provide that. Other clients need someone to coordinate their staging, whether that means storage, deep cleaning, design, or all of the above; I organize that. Often, house showings are delayed because there’s no one to take care of your pets; that’s why my daughter has a pet sitting service. Whatever you need to make your home process a reality, I can nurture and strategize the best way to make it happen, personalized for you! And because I love my Santa Clarita community, every business I enlist is a local business. Most of them are led by single moms, entrepreneurs in the community who really care about your business. They appreciate and take pride in their work, so every investment we put into your home listing will count. Even the cookies I deliver at holidays are made by a local Mom!

I enjoy helping others create a plan for home ownership and will find a way to make your dream home a reality. It’s a huge perk to my job but not surprising that clients become friends, and our agent-client relationship is for life. Networking with me starts with trust, and that’s why my clients become friends and friends refer new people to me. I know when you need a starter home and how to position your home and finances for an upgrade. I believe in negotiating with kindness, and that brings my clients the best value. I love our neighborhoods and delight in finding the right fit for you as a buyer or a seller.

It all starts with an informal conversation, even long before you’re ready to start the process. Contact me and I’ll help you understand your specific needs and take the pressure off your journey to a new home.
