Hi, I'm Mary and I pride myself on being a "one-stop shopping" resource for buyers and sellers.

I've lived in Central Florida for most of my life, aside from a brief stint in Tallahassee to get my Bachelor's Degree at FSU. I've been working behind the scenes as an Administrative Assistant to Great Expectations Realty for a few years and have made some great connections while meeting so many people in this field.
After a lot of studying and training, I am now a fully licensed Real Estate Sales Associate! I have an extensive background in customer service, so give me a call and I will do my best to ensure that everyone goes (to their new) home happy and satisfied.
Raised in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida, I moved to Ocala in 2016 and immediately applied for a part time job as a delivery driver for Papa Johns so that I could learn the area in an efficient manner. In my travels, I’ve come to believe that Ocala is Florida’s “hidden gem.” I am honored to have been welcomed by the local community. I love the outdoors, frequenting local parks from Jervey Gantt to Shalom, and I have visited almost every spring in the county. I am also a part of many groups such as Meeple Movers which calls people of all kinds together weekly to play tabletop games. As a promoter of community awareness, I participate in many networks for professionals, volunteering programs for various types of outreach, and attending as many community events as possible. A member of the Young Professionals Network for the Ocala Marion County Board of Realtors (OMCAR), I have a knack for helping millennials find their dream homes and am fully equipped to walk step by step with first time home buyers through the home-buying process. I have been a full-time realtor for about a year now and have channeled all my 10+ years of professional experience in customer service to make real estate my career. Your needs as a client are my top priority – from navigating the market and narrowing down the options to waiting patiently for your deed to arrive. Trust me, I am very familiar with the hassles of renting and being stuck in bad credit, as a student under Dave Ramsey I can set you up with a roadmap to homeownership even if you won’t be ready for a year or more.

Hello! my name is Joao Cappellano. I grew up in Palm Beach County, FL and have lived in several areas in central and north central FL.

We love to enjoy nature at its fullest here by taking our kayaks out to Rainbow River, Silver Springs State Park, amongst many more. We love to go to the amazing Greenway trail for biking, hiking, running, and even horseback riding. Ocala is the horse capital of the world, we both grew up with experience around horses and now live on a mini farm with our horses!
I joined the fire service because I enjoy helping people and it also taught me to be creative when it comes to solving problems.

I bring a lot of energy and enthusiasm to the real estate industry!
