To say Mary is a force in our industry would be a slight understatement. She’s built a reputation for being hardworking, fair and extremely intelligent. What that means is when people sit down across the table from Mary, they know they are in for a tough negotiation. The analysts around here say she can look at a spreadsheet for 30 seconds and tell you every number that is inaccurate. And even with this precision of mind, Mary has a way with clients that breaks it down effortlessly, explaining the implications of a lease clause to a client. An M&A colleague describes Mary as a “velvet hammer,” who gets the job done and ensures everyone walks away as friends. When she’s not knee deep in negotiations, Mary is spending time at the gym or with her family and friends on and off the golf course.
We couldn’t have broken ground on our Assembly Row project without Mary. Her negotiation skills and attention to detail are unmatched. She is a trusted advisor to our team.”
