When asked what influenced her decision to give up a successful 24-year career in the financial services industry for a career as a Realtor®, Mary Lou responded, “It is in my blood. Both my husband and I are second-generation Realtors who have been active in the industry as investors in the past. My mother-in-law sold real estate on Hilton Head Island for 30 years and I am excited to follow in her footsteps. I am passionate about real estate, and having a satisfying career doing what I love is a dream come true. I chose to associate with Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Hilton Head Bluffton Realty (previously Lancaster Real Estate Sales) because of its history in the area and its long standing tradition of excellence in service to its clients.”
