Since becoming a REALTOR® in 1996, Mari Hans has worked with hundreds of buyers and sellers. Mari has all the qualities you’d expect in a great broker. She’s loyal, trustworthy, friendly and honest. She has deep knowledge of the western suburbs she serves. She’s an expert in guiding all parties from listing to closing. But what sets Mari apart is she truly understands the importance of hearth and home.
Mari’s family moved to Oak Park when she was in high school. She has spent much of her adult life here, and she owns a condo in the village.
Mari loves helping buyers find the perfect place to make memories. She also knows how hard it can be for sellers to say goodbye to a beloved home after so many years; she saw her own parents struggle when it was time to sell and downsize. Because Mari is fluent in both the practical and emotional sides to buying and selling, she has a long list of satisfied clients who make frequent referrals.
Mari is passionate about real estate and she makes continuing education a top priority. She earned designations as a Graduate, REALTOR® Institute (GRI) and a Short Sales and Foreclosure Resource (SFR), which trained her to serve clients in a wide range of transactions.
When she’s not working with real estate clients, Mari is very involved in the Oak Park community. She’s been a parishioner at St. Edmund’s Church for 35 years, where she is a Eucharistic Minister, Minister of Care, Parish Life Commission Member, Wedding Coordinator, and book club moderator. She also loves to travel and spend time with her family and friends.
I wanted to thank you on the home buying process. Although my dealings with the bank were not pleasant, my dealings with you were excellent. I appreciate your patience and all of your knowledge and explanation on the process. We love being in our new home and we are happy for the opportunity to have worked with you. -Melissa W.
Mari, this is long overdue, but I wanted to thank you for everything you did to help with the purchase of our home. If I weren’t a Realtor, I would have you as my agent. You were wonderful to work with. All is well with our new home. We are loving it. Thank you, hopefully I can work on another deal with you. -Diane V.
