Mary Fleming, Broker

As a native of Pearl River County, Mary wanted to continue her husband's legacy in the Real Estate Business here. In December 2017, her husband James Fleming retired from over 40 years in the real estate business in Pearl River County. Mary was licensed as a Misssissippi Real Estate Broker in 2012, and has had her Salesperson license in Mississippi since March 26, 1999. She has served as a member of the Pearl River County Board of Realtors Board of Directors, the Governmental Affairs MARPAC Committee, the Finance Committee, The Grievance Committee and the MLS Committee. She is a life time member of the Multi Million Dollar Club and continues to be a Multi Million Dollar Producer in Sales in Pearl River County. In January 2018, she became the Responsible Broker for Mississippi Land and Home Sales LLC. Not surprising, as she has come from a back ground of loving service to her community, her family, her church and the world.

Mary began her career in the late 1970's in the airline industry. From there she went into the travel industry as a travel agent, soon she became manager of one of the largest agencies in the state of Mississippi at the age of 22. By 1980, however she had to return home to Picayune due to illness of family. Late in 1980 Mary opened the first Travel Agency here in Picayune. It was her love of people, travel, and service that has kept her at the fore front of education, hard work and perseverance.

In 1988, Mary sold her travel agency and took her skills into a new opportunity, handling travel for the Navy with Sato. But in 1995 Mary and James began the adoption process that lead them to China.

They traveled the world, but now Mary stayed at home and cared for the daughter they were to meet in 1996. Always traveling, always studying, learning new things, Mary has always had a heart for people.

So as James began to slow down and their daughter was in college, Mary began to assemble a team of professionals who have integrity, honesty, fairness and are committed with high moral standards.

Mary and her team bring experience in Marketing, Public Relations, Business Planning, Education, Networking, Team Work and most of all Professionalism in general. The "Golden Rule" in the norm, rather than the exception.

When Mary is not busy in real estate, she enjoys MUSIC! Mary has played the piano since the age of 4. She has played the piano for the Spanish Congregation for Roseland Park Baptist Church and fills in as needed when called. She sings in the choir in church and attends concerts, plays, theatre both local and worldwide whenever possible. She and James still love to travel, but these days mostly close to home. Always interested in people, Mary loves teaching Sunday school at Roseland Park Baptist Church and loves attending local events. She loves to give…of her time…cooking and taking food to those in need and using her talents and gifts to help whenever and where ever there's a need!
