Meet Mary-Jo
Broker, Seniors Real Estate Specialist

Providing you with the highest calibre of professional personal service, commitment and complete follow up.

I’ve been a Real Estate Broker since 1986 and a life time resident of Oakville where I reside with my family. Successfully selling Residential Real Estate as a member of the Oakville, Milton and District Real Estate Board, I have also served as a Director of Education and a Committee Member. In 2015, our local Real Estate Board amalgamated with over eight other affiliated real estate boards providing me with the opportunity to serve in a multitude of areas throughout Ontario.

By building relationships over the years with assisting my Sellers and Buyers in their real estate journey, I am a respected and trusted Realtor in the Oakville community who exhibits honesty and integrity combined with exceptional resourcefulness and a solutions oriented business approach.

During my career I spent many years working with my Mother and mentor “Anell Francis” and my sister Ame Francis owning and operating our own independent Real Estate Brokerage known as “Anell Francis Real Estate” as well as operating an award winning franchised Brokerage for over 20 years. I have been a consistent award winning Realtor for over 3 decades in the industry and attributes my success to a professional business built on constant referrals and repeat business from satisfied and loyal customers and clients. 

I can see clearly now...the clutter is gone! What is Staging?

Staging is a proven system of arranging furnishings to create a positive impact on a Buyer the second they walk through the door. It is entirely different from decorating and is an additional and extremely effective tool in a competitive market place. Having a natural flair and interest in interior design and decorating. I completed the Accredited Staging Professional Course with the necessary skills needed to prepare a home for sale. I can help a Seller to understand that the we we live in our home and the way we need to "market" our home for sale are two very different things.
 
I work closely with a vast network of trusted, independant industry professionals including staging companies that specialize in furniture and accessory items, trades for updating and home improvements, content sale and de-cluttering companies and more!
 
 I am able to successfully assist Sellers in preparing their properties for sale which will ultimately attract serious Buyers, secure more equity for the Seller and take the “stress” out of selling!

This is a nationally recognized designation and provides me with the resources and skills necessary to meet the growing demands and unique needs of my Buyers and Sellers age 55 and older.
