When you think about the life you want to live, what does that look like? What do you see in your world? Your neighborhood? Where do you want to go for fun? For peace? For community? If we could find a place where all of those answers came together harmoniously, would it be worth a look? A minute to slow down and absorb?

Mary’s family just answered all the same questions and took the leap by moving from the Hudson Valley in New York to The Villages! Well, the family section that is. Their son, Clayton, and daughter, Maeve, love visiting Grandma and Grandpa in The Village of Largo almost daily. Grandma and Grandpa have the coolest life. (The golf cars definitely play into that equation!). The children are excited to start The Villages Charter School this fall. Clayton will enter the 5th grade this fall playing the cello and wrestling. Maeve will enter the 3rd grade learning the piano and continuing with her Irish Step Dancing.

Mary is a graduate of the Fashion Institute of Technology, and has an Associate’s degree in Clothing Design and a Bachelor’s degree in International Trade & Marketing. She has had the privilege to work for a few American couture houses and some of the largest clothing brands in the country. Living and working in the Big Apple was incredible. She even met her husband of 13 years, Garrett, in a “love at first sight” middle of the chaotic city rush moment. After 20 years of service with the New York City Police Department, Garrett recently retired as a police officer and delegate. They love and will always support their Blue Family.

After marriage and children, she pivoted her career by becoming a realtor in the lower Hudson Valley, NY and Northern New Jersey. Her design skills, ability to “think outside the box” and pivot quickly was critical to her success in real estate for the last 7 years.

“Working with Property of The Villages, I am delighted to serve you in your endeavor to find your most desired lifestyle. With patience, panache and an eye for the delightfully unexpected, please allow me the honor to be the first to welcome you home to The Villages!”
