  • ColorScapes LLC 2002-2020

  • Licensed Realtor 2012

  • 2020 Full Time Realtor

  • SRES Designation

  • Buyer and Seller Agent

  • MT-Nesting Downsizing

As the owner of ColorScapes since 2002, I have worked with over 1000 clients in the greater Madison area. I have managed many whole house remodels as well as hundreds of color and design consultations.
As of fall 2020, I completed my final remodel, a beautiful kitchen in the Blackhawk neighborhood.

In 2012, I received my real estate sales and broker license. I practiced real estate while continuing my interior design career.

In 2021, I transitioned full time to real estate. I work with clients buying or selling. In the fall of 2021, I received my 50+ Seniors Real Estate Specialist designation from the National Association of Realtors. SRES is a rigorous accreditation to serve 50+ Seniors in their home transitions.
In addition to sales, I consult with homeowners who may not be quite sure how to get started with the task of downsizing, physically and emotionally.

Hence, I founded MT-Nesting to meet the needs of these homeowners downsizing, but not quite ready to set the list date, but who need plenty of support, resources, and assistance to get ready to make a move or to age in place for a time. My background in most things HOME can be helpful in getting the the ball rolling.

Mary worked with me initially on my home in Lodi, Wi in 2004. After I moved into?my condo in Verona, Wisconsin in 2015, I knew who to call to help me add some pzazz to my?new home. Besides putting together a color palette, she made valuable suggestions to update my kitchen counter top and back splash, fireplace surround, and add?art to?my walls. She also helped me find a beautiful?dining room set to fit my large family gatherings. Her?installers were all top notch, reliable, and professional. I am very?happy Mary?is still going strong.
