Mary Hoffman was born and raised in Missoula, Montana, and has spent 39 years building business relationships within the community. As a young child, Mary had an experience that was a deciding moment in the path for her future. She knew that she wanted to be someone who would make people feel special. She followed that dream and became a Cosmetologist in 1982, which led to owning several salons; a successful career that lasted 35 years. She enjoyed being a part of her clients' important moments in their life; first haircuts, graduations, weddings, and other special events.
Mary's entrepreneurial spirit continued after retiring from being a salon owner. It's no surprise that she easily fell into the role of being a . She had always loved decorating her home and often went to open houses just to see different floor plans and imagine how she would change them. The gift of being creative and wanting to help people feel good about their experiences along with having a strong work ethic, drives her to be the type of that every home seller and buyer appreciates.
Having been featured in the Entrepreneur's Magazine , Mary is quoted as saying "we have dreams that we don't believe are achievable...anything is possible". She heeded her own words, and in 2010, set out to build her own custom home. Mary was motivated and passionate about being an intricate part of the process and thoroughly enjoyed seeing the home that she envisioned to become a reality. Her home was chosen to be included in Missoula's Parade of Homes and was awarded all five of the awards for that year, including The Peoples' Choice, Overall Design, Notable Kitchen, Site Integration, and Craftsmanship.
Mary has been married to her husband Scott since 1984. Together they enjoy spending time with their five children and their spouses, 12 grandchildren.
In her free time, she enjoys her 2 large gardens of both vegetables and flowers, yard work, repurposing furniture, and rearranging rooms inside and out to keep things feeling fresh and new.
Having a large family and many close friends, Mary hosts numerous parties and social gatherings and enjoys all of the cooking that comes with that. She loves her Black Lab dog, Rudy, and 14 chickens. Mary also, perhaps oddly, enjoys cleaning her house.
Where you live is not just a house, it’s where your family’s memories are made. Mary will help you through the process of living in your dream home! With 35 successful years in an industry where her clients had put their trust in her, she again finds herself in a profession where she pays close attention to the individual needs of her clients and helps them navigate a REALLY important transaction. Communication is so important, and one of Mary's strengths is truly listening.
I can't say enough about our experience with Mary in buying our Missoula property. She answered my call the first time I reached out and spent the quality time to listen to our hopes, dreams, reasons for moving, wishes and concerns. She jumped on our search immediately - we in CA and her in MT. She used her extensive knowledge of being raised in the area to keep us comfortable moving at a fast pace while learning about locations/weather/town feel, etc. She not only found us our home - she helped us fall in love with Missoula and outer areas. Documentation was EASY with Mart - she went above and beyond with obtaining information to answer our many questions and she worked with our broker seamlessly. We will be using Mary again!
