Mary Maloney

Hometown Realty

Mary grew up in the small town of Tuckerman, Arkansas, where everyone looked out for each other and enjoyed a sense of hometown pride. Those small town values show up in every aspect of Mary’s life – including founding Hometown Realty.

Mary is the kind of person that will show up at the door of a sick friend with homemade soup. She’s never too busy for anyone and always finds a way to connect a need with a resource. Mary and her daughter belong to National Charity League – a mother/daughter philanthropic organization where they volunteer for various charities throughout San Diego County. Mary is also instrumental in using Hometown Realty as a catalyst for bringing the community together – organizing Food Drives, hosting National Night Out, First Friday events and other community gatherings.

Beyond community spirit, Mary is passionate about food and home décor. She takes great pride in cooking for friends and family. She also loves collecting home décor ideas and inspiration on virtual pinboards and in real life. Mary opened a small boutique in our offices (Market at Hometown Realty) to bring unique gifts and home décor to the community.

Mary’s eight years in the U.S. Navy working in communications and intelligence definitely show up in her diligence and strong work ethic. After leaving the Navy, she spent time in the corporate world where she developed her keen marketing skills. When the entrepreneurial itch got the best of her, she jumped into real estate where she quickly became one of the most knowledgeable and successful agents in the area.

At various points growing up, Mary wanted to be an attorney, nurse, teacher, and broadcast journalist. Being a realtor really allows her to be all of those things and to put all of her interests to work on behalf of her clients – negotiating, marketing, decorating, and building community.

Mary’s proudest career moment was opening Hometown Realty, where she is 100% committed to her clients and her team. Founded on the values she got growing up in Tuckerman, Arkansas, Hometown Realty is the #1 agency serving San Elijo Hills and expanding into Carlsbad and other areas of North County — proving that doing business the right way means taking care of people, giving back to the community, and understanding what a home means to a family.
