Mary Schulze founded MDBW in 1994 to help local businesswomen build business relationships, referral networks, and partners. Mary credits the group with helping businesses grow and succeed through the sharing of knowledge, referrals, and partnerships. Today the organization’s members represent a variety of business sectors. Mary remains active in the group. She served on the board of directors as program chair, and is currently the historian for the organization.
Mary’s vast network of contacts has helped her to be a successful real estate consultant with Intero Real Estate Services, serving Contra Costa and El Dorado counties. She helps clients sell their houses, and buy a dream home in what is now a very competitive market. She enjoys finding the right home for each buyer, whether they are a first-time homebuyer or a senior who is downsizing.
Clients benefit from Mary’s almost 20 years of experience in the San Francisco Bay Area and the Sacramento region, as well as her negotiating experience, which provides clients with the fair price on purchases and closing the deal. As a realtor with Intero Real Estate Services, clients can have worldwide and local exposure and marketing, all of which can result in swift action on multiple offers.
The best referrals for Mary are new business lenders, insurance agents, contractors, handyman services, divorce attorneys and CPAs. She also receives many referrals through word-of-mouth from happy clients, along with the many friends and business contacts she has met through her years as the founder and member of MDBW.
In addition to her work as a realtor, Mary is active in the community. She contributes a portion of her transactions to a nonprofit focused on serving children and the elderly in the community. She is also a member of the Assistance League of the Sierra Foothills, a nonprofit that has helped to support over 1,500 children and adults in the community.
When she’s not working, Mary enjoys cooking, playing the piano, learning to speak Italian, playing with her dog, Maxx, a giant schnoodle, and being with family and friends.
