"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!

"We are so grateful that our first experience buying property was with Mary Conway.

Generous with her time and expertise, she guided us through the process of being first time buyers. She has a wealth of knowledge about real estate and connected us to a network of other well trusted people to work with.

Mary is warm, friendly, and easy to talk to. If you are looking for someone whose competence matches their approachability then look no further.

For the very best real estate experience, we highly recommend Mary Conway of Baird & Warner"

"My husband and I worked with Mary to purchase our first home together. I can’t say enough how helpful and easy she was to work with. Every step of the way she was there to answer our endless questions and keep the process on track. Early in our search we met some other agents and let me tell you, I was not impressed. We met with agents who were late, didn’t take us seriously, talked too much, didn’t talk enough, and in some cases didn’t seem to know what they were talking about. Mary is none of those things and I was definitely impressed by her over and over again. She is genuine, knowledgeable, accessible, and was truly most interested in helping us do what is best for us. I absolutely recommend working with her. Thank you Mary for helping us find our new home!"

"Working with Mary Conway was a wonderful experience. She is patient and took the time to guide my wife and I through the home buying process, answering any and all questions we had along the way. She went above and beyond to personally show us all of the listings we asked to tour and not once pressured or rushed us to make a decision before we were ready. When it came to closing, she coordinated all the various parties and kept the entire process on track. It was fantastic to have Mary on our side and I would highly recommend working with her."

"Mary is professional, knowledgeable, has great follow-up and has a get-it-done attitude. She is honest, upfront and has integrity. No fuss. No drama. She did a great job from start to finish. Excellent communication skills. Always kept us in the loop and answered all of our many questions! Knowing she was there and handling all of the details, reduced our stress. I highly recommend her to anyone looking for an amazing realtor! She is truly the BEST!"

"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!"
