Mary Anne Kennedy - Biography

I am a full time experienced real estate professional marketing consultant with 30+ years of proven expertise as a MARKET LEADER. I am a graduate of the Realtors Institute of Michigan, a Certified Residential Specialists, an Accredited Buyer’s Representative (ABR), a Broker, as well as an Associate Broker. Both the Graduate Realtor (GRI) and the Certified Residential Specialists (CRS) credentials place me in the TOP TWO PERCENT OF REALTORS nationally. As a Certified Residential Specialist, I am trained to understand the market and negotiate successfully. I have expertise in many areas of real estate including finance, contracts, negotiating, marketing, international relocation, loss mitigation consultant, property management, real estate investments, and am certified as a short sale/foreclosure specialist (SFR).            

            I am committed to professional excellence. During my career, I have served on numerous committees. On a national level, I have represented the Women’s Council of Realtors on International Business Opportunities in Washington D.C., and attended numerous National Conventions for the National Association of Realtors. On a state level, I have continued my commitment to the profession in service to the Michigan Association of Realtor’s by serving on both the Grievance Committee and Professional Standards Committee. On a local level, I have represented the local board of Realtors with service as Chairman of the Professional Standards Committee, the Ethics and Arbitration Committees, the Standard Forms Committee, and the Public Relations Committee. During 2011-2012, I served on the Board of Directors for the State of Michigan, Certified Residential Specialists Council. In 2013, I was named one of Detroit Hour Media’s Real Estate All Stars.

            I have taught Real Estate Basics for pre-licensure classes, and participated in public awareness courses about the real estate market. I have expanded my career into international real estate as a member of ICREA (International Consortium of Real Estate Associations) and have achieved international recognition with my educational credentials TRC (Transnational Relocation Certified). Currently I am achieving the professional designation as CIPS. As a Certified International Property Specialist, my real estate educational credentials will place me in the TOP ½ PERCENT OF ALL REALTORS.  

I am a member of good standing in the National Association of Realtors, Michigan Association of Realtors, Council of Residential Specialists, Women’s Council of Realtors, Real Estate Buyer’s Agency Council, and Metropolitan Consolidated Association of Realtors. I am a member of the Board of Directors for the local chapter of the American Association of University Women (AAUW) and a member of the Greater Rochester Foundation and Women's Fund. I volunteer with the local efforts of Habitat for Humanity. I am an active member of my church where I teach religious education and publicly speak for the Archdiocese of Detroit regarding foreclosures, short sales and mortgage loss mitigation. In my spare time, I enjoy golf, gourmet cooking, international travel, and photography.
