Hailing from Illinois, Maryalice never expected to become involved with real estate. Since she was in high school, she had always felt at home in an office. After leaving her first full time job (which she held for 12 years), she became a real estate paralegal. Many people in Illinios, at the time, relied on attorneys to aid them with buying and selling their properties; Maryalice was an asset to a solo practitioner, who needed a paralegal to finalize the closing process. Because she needed to be closer to her aging parents, she eventually moved to Wisconsin. There, Maryalice was able to find a job in personal banking and aided clients who needed second mortgages. This past July, she decided to move to Colorado to be closer to her family, where she had the opportunity to become the Office Manager for the Scott Futa Home Team. Maryalice’s job is a necessity for the expanding company; she is in charge of filing documents, answering phone calls, and ensuring each transaction runs smoothly. She has been able to put her organizational skills to use, admitting that she is better at arranging an office than she is at organizing her own house.
When she is not working, Maryalice enjoys spending time with her family. Now that she calls Colorado home, she is happy to be able to see her two grandsons often and support them during sporting events. Aside from being with her loved ones, she has always enjoyed travelling. After being involved in an exchange program in college and then visiting her daughter, Sarah, when she was in England, Maryalice fell in love with Europe. If she were to win the lottery, Maryalice believes she would spend 6 months traveling throughout this continent. Genealogy has also been a great interest of hers, so, while in Scandinavia, she was able to visit family farms and churches, and reconnect with long-lost cousins. As far as entertainment goes, she has always loved classic movies, like Casablanca and An Affair to Remember, and crime novels, like the Girl with the Dragon Tattoo series by Stieg Larsson.
Though she has only been in Colorado for a few months, Maryalice has become essential to the Scott Futa Home Team. This office manager brings her years of experience and her prior knowledge of the real estate field to the company. In her new home, she is able to work with the people she is close to and do what she loves: spend time with her family.
