    REALTOR Extraordinaire! Master of all details! Fire Extinguisher! Plate Spinner! Hand Holder! Bottle Washer! Solution Finder! Tear Dryer & Funny Bone Tickler! Ok ok - let's be serious....

    My name is Mary Braaten.  I am a full time REALTOR living in Sumter, South Carolina - home of Shaw Air Force Base.  This is all I do and I love what I do!
     
    I am originally from Tucson, Az and grew up in a tiny little town called Tumacacori, Az - just north of the border of Mexico.  I am a 3rd generation REALTOR, following in the footsteps of my grandfather (JP Vaughan) and my father (Art Vaughan).
     
    I have been happily married to my knight in shining armor, Russ Braaten, for almost 30 years.  We have 2 grown daughters, Courtney and Amy.  We recently entered one of the best stages of our lives to date:  Daughter Amy and her husband, Lamar, blessed us with a grand daughter, Makayla Elizabeth, Sept 2010.  She's the best thing since sliced bread!
     
    Russ and I have been members of Destiny Praise Center, our church, for almost 20 years and serve as deacons - and whatever else they need us to do.
     
    I love my God.  I love my Family.  I love my job.  I love this city we live in!

    My specialties: Residential Sales - New Construction and Resale; First time buyers, Miltiary/Corporate relocations; investment properties

    Listed, but didn't sell my Single Family home in 2010 in Sumter, SC.

    We have been very pleased with the professionalism Mary displays. She has the pulse of the local market and is current w/ military needs & situations. Mary is very attentive and works tirelessly to meet your needs.

    Sold a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $150K in Sumter, SC.

    The Air Force moved our family to Sumter and Mary helped us find the perfect house quickly. We contacted her before we actually moved to the area and she was ready to show us places as soon as we got there. Because she has personal experience with being part of a military family, she knew the pressure we were under to find a new home quickly. She worked hard for us and we bought within the first 10 days we were in town! When we left Sumter, she also worked very hard to get our house sold. She is extremely knowledgeable, and her expertise helped us sell our house! She is very thorough and gives great advice because she knows the market and all the ins and outs of the business. Although rare, it can be hard to get a hold of her. She's a very busy lady, but rest assured that even though she isn't in contact with you 24/7, she is working for you 24/7. Mary is excellent and virtuous at her profession!! Definitely go with Mary!  More Less

    Sold a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $75K in Sumter, SC.

    My husband and I just love love,Mary Braaten! We had our house up for sale through her. She went above and beyond what any realtor in the past has ever done for us. She made everything simple and stress free as possible when we closed on our home. Buy or Sale through Mary, you wont be disappointed! Highly recommend!  More Less
