"If it's a Million, it Must be Mary" is more than a slogan to Tampa's top Luxury and Waterfront specialist. Mary Kelly, a former school teacher, is the leader in the sale of single-family million and multi-million dollar homes and has been honored as the Top Agent at Smith & Associates. Mary has been featured on the "Extra" television broadcast of "Mansions and Millionaires", has been a board member of "Leaders in Luxury", and is a highly rated speaker on marketing to the uber wealthy and celebrities for the Institute of Luxury Home Marketing and Luxury Portfolio.

Integrity, Results, Discretion, and Experience have been the cornerstones of Mary Kelly's real estate success in New York and Florida since 1981. Mary was the very first recipient of Smith & Associates' "Mary Smith Conover Award" for her outstanding service, voted on by her peers and office staff. With over 30 years of experience in corporate relocation and luxury sales, Mary offers a wealth of knowledge ranging from waterfront estates to luxury high rise condos. As a result of her Premium Marketing Plans and her ability to achieve the "highest price within the shortest period of time" Mary has understandably set numerous sales records through her impressive network of celebrity and high net worth clients.

In 1987 Mary's husband John started a new marketing company in Tampa, OKRA, and Mary reluctantly made the move from New York. Mary credits the city's small-town Southern charm and big-city lifestyle with helping her make the transition. Still she says the experience gave her a profound appreciation of how emotional relocation can be for all members of the family.

Having been a transplant herself, Mary knows the importance of community involvement and participation in charitable events and activities as a way of getting to know your new "home town." She has had the honor to chair the Patrons Committee of Pavilion (Tampa's premier white tie fundraiser for the Tampa Museum of Art) as cochair for the TMA's premier luxury event; and served as former President of Tampa Newcomers, she is a member of: The Red Cross Angels, Florida Orchestra Guild, University Club, and Palma Ceia Golf and Country Club, the Culbreath Isles Club, and Women in the Know Book Club.

Having lived in London and traveled extensively in Asia and Europe, Mary has developed an understanding and network of international relationships unsurpassed in Tampa Bay. She is known for maintaining discretion and privacy when representing valued clients. Beyond her unparalleled 30 years of experience in all markets, Mary's passion for her profession and her desire to make a positive difference shines through in all she does.
