Mary manages RE Assist, Inc and provides training to new Transaction Coordinators as well as teaching her Contract and Forms class to Middle Tennessee real estate Agents.  She has a endless love for contracts, her husband Ben, her children, grandchildren and 2 fur babies.  When she isn't working she can usually be found working on her house (she is  a true DIY extraordinaire), gardening, spoiling her grand-babies and fur babies or relaxing with her husband.

Her goal is to provide outstanding service to all RE Assist clients while helping them to increase their real estate business and learn the contracts.  For more information  about RE Assist, Inc and the services they offer, give Mary a call.
