"Why do you want to be a Realtor?"  This is a question that many people asked me when I made the career change after years of being an accounting professional.  The answer is simple - I want to make a difference by helping others with one of the most important events of their lives. Years ago my husband & I decided to move our young family from Chicago to the Barrington area.  Although we weren’t first time home buyers, having purchased our first home in the city, we were nervous about the process of coordinating the sale of our current home with the purchase of a new one.   Adding to our stress was the thought of moving to an area that was somewhat unfamiliar to us.  We were fortunate enough to contact a real estate agent at the Baird & Warner office in Barrington . We walked away from our initial meeting knowing that we were in good hands.  Our agent really took the time to listen, not only to the wish list for our new home but also to our apprehension about making the move.   She shared her knowledge about the various towns and amenities in the area and found us a wonderful home in Kildeer.  She was with us every step of the way, from that first meeting until the day we closed on our house.  Although we have since sold that home in Kildeer and moved to new construction In Long Grove, I often think back to the wonderful experience we had with our Baird & Warner agent.

Now I am proud to be a member of the Baird & Warner family.   I have a strong business background and bring with me 35 years of solid experience in Finance and Treasury  I am professional, caring and hardworking with a strong work ethic which pairs with Baird & Warner’s award-winning marketing tools and top-flight technology for a winning combination!

I would be honored to have the opportunity to assist you in your home buying or selling needs.  Whether buying or selling, I will always put your best interests first and foremost.  I am dedicated to really listening to your needs and providing you with responsive, professional, personal service.  I work with a great team including mortgage professionals, real estate attorneys, home stagers and home repair specialists. My goal is to make the experience of buying or selling your home as enjoyable and stress-free as possible.  Give me a call today & let me be the one to make a difference in your life!

"I recommend Mary to anyone who is looking to buy or sell their property. Mary was very flexible with schedule and easy to work with. Any questions I had, she got back to me quickly. She sold our townhouse in three days! Thank you Mary!"

"Mary Conway helped me find the best home for me. I had very restrictive needs in limited funds and living all on one floor. Mary searched and found 4 possibles in the area I requested. I found 3 of interest but was only able to see one on the day we had scheduled. It was a perfect fit to my needs. Mary helped me every step of the way in bidding, inspecting, and closing on the property. She is very knowledgeable and could answer my questions no matter how off the wall. She had good contacts for the other professionals we needed along the way. I had a pleasant experience working with Mary and highly recommend her as a real estate agent."

"Mary was very correct in what the expectations of the people buying homes today. They want as close to new construction as possible. I needed to do some fix up like refinish a wood floor. She recommended a stager which I really was not all that excited about doing. But in the end both things really paid off. House sold same day on market. She was also spot on as to proper pricing. We all want as much as possible for our homes but there is an amount that is more reality. We did our comparisons and came to what was a good price higher than some others in the area but lower as well than others. The ones with the higher prices have been on the market quite a while. She did a good balance of knowing I wanted to sell in a reasonable amount of time but not at a fire sale price. Acutally it was much sooner than I expected. She is just honest and all about the task at hand."

"We had to relocate for my husbands work to north chicago suburbs ( Lake county). I flew up from Texas for 24 hrs 3 days before our moving truck was loaded. It was a stressful situation to find move in ready rental, having 2 toddlers and not knowing the area at all. Mary Conway was, without a doubt, the best realtor for the job. She took me to 14 houses all over Lake County in about 8 hrs. Nonstop. She was an amazing guide and advisor. She was energetic and positive, respectfull and realistic. She gave me all the information i needed and did not stop until we found the perfect home within our budget in a great neighborhood. She negotiated on my behalf and even pointed out things I might need and was not aware of. I just cannot say enough good things about her. I truly felt taken care of."
