Many years ago, I began my adult career in real estate sales. My daughter was a wee little one, and I would occasionally show homes and go on appointments with her on my hip. I loved my job. I loved helping people find their new home, a place to build their lives. I left because of family obligations.
Fast forward almost 30 years later...I am married to a lifelong resident of Aurora and we call Aurora our home. Our daughter is grown with a family of her own, blessing me with 3 wonderful grandchildren. Our son, a West Aurora High School graduate, is commissioned to the United States Navy. I've spent years finding success in a variety of jobs, being the top in my field, and volunteering within the community. I've finished my Bachelors and my MBA at Aurora University, both the top of my class. Yet, I still found myself unsatisfied with my career path. With the love and support of my wonderful family, I returned to the career that I loved most, real estate sales.
I joined Pilmer Real Estate in Aurora, IL as a Realtor Broker because they are a family owned agency that hold the same values and beliefs that I do; doing what is right and what is best for the customer and client, while serving the community. I bring over 30 years of varied experiences, strong negotiation skills, and an exceptional customer focus. I am committed to exceed my customers’ expectations while serving the community in which I live.
My former sales director, Terry Burke, said of me, Maryann “sold with integrity and continued to engage her clients with a teaching approach… I watched and heard her practicing the art of asking good questions, demonstrating active listening and managing to maintain a solid work-life balance in the process. Pretty amazing… You need Maryann Komes to achieve great results… I give her my highest recommendation.”
