Mary Kae Higgins


In the hustle and bustle of the real estate industry, my name has become synonymous with excellence, dedication, and exceptional service. With a career spanning over 20 years in real estate, I have proudly held the title of one of the leading agents in the community. My proven record is demonstrated by the many awards I win annually at Coldwell Banker Reliable Real Estate.

Before starting my career in real estate, I worked as a Vice President in the Cash Management Sales Division with the Bank of New York. Little did I know at the time that the skills learned here would serve as a bedrock of my success in the real estate industry. After years in banking, I made a bold leap into the world of real estate. The transition was both exciting and challenging, but I was determined to apply my financial expertise to the real estate market. I embraced a career that would demand a deep understanding of pricing, market trends, and the art of overcoming objections, all while providing impeccable service to my clients. While I work throughout Brooklyn, some affectionately refer to me as the "Queen of Residential" in Bay Ridge.

My career has been marked by a dynamic mix of residential and commercial properties. I earned my Appraiser's License early on, enabling me to develop a unique skill in crafting effective pricing strategies that consistently lead to successful closings. I understand the complexities of different market conditions, whether they are appreciating or adjusting. Listening has become my superpower. I make it my mission to understand my client's needs, whether they're looking to resell, trade up, or downsize.

My goal is simple: to be the guiding hand my clients can rely on when navigating the complex real estate landscape. With my team of experts, we've helped families through challenging real estate transactions and have helped them enhance the property with staging. When I'm not busy helping my clients achieve their real estate dreams, you might find me cruising the streets of Bay Ridge going to my next appointment, riding my bike around Park Slope, or sailing along the waters of Sheepshead Bay. During my downtime, I savor the simple pleasures of life, including watching HGTV and getting lost in the pages of a gripping mystery novel.

Mary Kae did a fantastic job helping us navigate the complex process of buying a home. She went above and beyond her role as our buying agent and took the time to go through helpful tips after we closed. We would recommend Mary Kae to anyone and we already know if the time comes to purchase again, we would go right back to Mary Kae.

Mary Kae is such a pleasure to work with and I completely trust her advice and suggestions. This purchase was in a very challenging market, and I am glad I had her guidance through this. I would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone looking to purchase a condo. She is extremely knowledgeable about the market and will give you good advice.
