On a personal note
After a lifetime in St Paul, Mary “crossed the river” and moved to downtown Minneapolis. She loves the urban lifestyle and enjoys walking to Twins games, local theaters and art galleries, bike riding along the river, listening to music in the parks and eating at great restaurants. Her love of architecture, Minnesota history and exploring neighborhoods fits perfectly with her career. Mary also volunteers with neighborhood homeless shelters and tutors under privileged children, which brings her a lot of joy and has taught her to live in gratitude.

Mary Adema is a great realtor! She has sold two homes for us and helped us purchase another. She is highly ethical, understands the market, is hardworking and communicative. She walked us through every part of the process and helped us make key decisions. Knowing we were in the hands of such an exceptionally accomplished Realtor as Mary made all the difference. She has our highest recommendation.Greg and Abigail Mulchahy
You are fabulous Mary! I just want to thank you for everything you did to help us find our home. We love it! I still wake up and can’t believe how lucky I am. This experience couldn’t have happened without you. I don’t know that anyone else would have worked harder for us, and we can’t tell you enough how much we appreciate that.Erin Fiedler Denham
Where do I start with my “thank you” on the purchase of our fabulous home! You had patience and stamina when we ran out of both. You knew how to negotiate the short sale with finesse but be direct when the situation called for it. You gave us encouragement when needed and a listening ear. Mary, we will forever be grateful!Rosie Staltar and Matt Onnen
