Mary loves working with people and finds the most joy in finding clients their next home.
A lifelong Chicagoan, Mary received her BA in Education from the University of Illinois in 1984 before becoming an elementary school teacher. Despite her love for teaching children, Mary decided that she needed a change and moved on to become an office manager at a CPA firm, where she worked until 2002. However, she always knew that there was something else that would satisfy her love of helping people and in 2002 she decided to pursue a full-time career as a realtor. Mary became a realtor on the Northwest side of Chicago.
The results of her career change have been nothing short of amazing. Mary has received recognition for exceptional service, including awards for exceptionally high client satisfaction and excellent sales performance. For the past two years, Mary has been named as one of Chicago's Top Realtors by Chicago Magazine.

Mary resides in Norwood Park where she loves taking walks throughout the neighborhood on warm evenings admiring the many Victorian style homes on large lots that are a beloved characteristic of the neighborhood. She enjoys taking in the culinary delights that Norwood Park and its next door neighbor, Edison Park, have to offer.
Mary is thrilled to be a part of Dream Town. She loves the philosophy here and looks forward to working with clients to take care of all their real estate needs whether they are in the market to buy or sell.
Thank you for all your help with the house. You’ve been a great comfort to us. God bless you.
Working with Mary Beirne at Dream Town Realty on the sale of our home was a real pleasure. I truly cannot say enough nice things about her as a realtor. As you know, moving can be a very stressful undertaking. Mary, with her expertise and experience, made this process so easy. We had a home to sell that needed a lot of work before it would be ready for sale. Mary was so knowledgeable about exactly what needed to be done in order to prepare the home for sale so we would get the best selling price. Mary also coordinated with our servicemen to get the home ready for sale. She was always available to answer countless questions and take us step by step through the process. When the home was finally ready for sale, it was listed and sold within a few hours. It made us wish we owned more property just so she could sell it for us. I have no doubt that we would never have been able to do as well as we did were it not for Mary’s help and guidance.
Thank you for your services. You were by far one of the most excellent Realtors I have worked with. Thanks for taking the time to explain things and being so patient. I will definitely refer you
Mary, I genuinely appreciate your attention to detail. You considered what my needs were while buying my new home. You’re an excellent salesperson and negotiator. I genuinely appreciate your help with selling my condominium in Arlington Heights and with my newly purchased home. I’ll gladly tell others about you and your services. They’re exemplary. You think of what’s coming up before it even happens. You also try to put needs of the person (your client) first and foremost while making them (me) feel at ease, while they’re going through a lot of stress through the whole buying their (my) new home and selling. I genuinely appreciate your professionalism and your follow through with what’s necessary to expedite the sale and or the purchase of my home. Take care and God bless you! Thank you very, very much!
Mary guided me throughout my first purchase. During the few times that I had concerns or questions during the process, Mary made sure that everything was resolved, sometimes quicker than I anticipated. Most importantly, I think Mary’s honesty and feedback about my choices along the way have led me to the best possible purchase option considering what I was looking for.
If you’re looking for a realtor who’s experienced, patient and very knowledgeable, you will want to work with Mary Beirne! I have used her services twice in 10 years to buy and sell my home and highly recommend her! She will follow through on every detail to make sure things go according to plan.
Mary, we simply can’t thank you enough for all the hours and what seemed like endless searching to help us finally find "our home". We appreciate your patience with us!! Thank you.
We have become very comfortable (in our new home) and are very grateful to have accomplished our task thanks to your great help. I think my job is stressful, but I think yours is very stressful! Day to day changes. We came out ahead and you guided the way. Thank you. See you soon. We will recommend you to our family and friends.
Working with Mary B. at Dream Town Realty was a terrific experience. Mary was recommended to me through a friend, and I could not have been happier. Mary provided me with practical guidance and effective strategies to price and place my property for quick turnaround. Her style is straight-forward, and her results were swift. I was extremely pleased with Mary’s guidance, her plans for placing my home on the market and our shared outcome. I highly recommend Mary and Dream Town Realty.
Just can’t thank you enough for your hard work and patience that helped us find the best house for us.
I have asked for Mary Beirne’s/Dream Town services twice, the first time to sell my home and she explained to me the whole process and the first couple to look at my home ended up purchasing it. The second time I asked for Mary’s assistance is in purchasing a new residence and again she thoroughly described to me the steps and the first place she showed to me is the one I’m currently occupying! Mary is really good at her job and she is a pleasure to work with. I feel so confident with her, that both my daughters have used her services!
It was a pleasure to fill out the survey with relating the experience we shared while buying and selling. I’ve never felt so comfortable with any other RE AGENT or any sales person for that matter... Please know, your greatest gift is your integrity, skill, intelligence and honesty you draw on to get the job done.
When we decided we wanted to buy a house, our good friend referred us to Mary. We are so glad she did! Mary listened to what we wanted and understood our situation. We really wanted to find a waterfront home in Lake County, IL and when we found our dream home she made it happen. She was attentive and always available when we had questions or concerns. After our offer was accepted we had an issue with the first appraisal. She kept us calm, and we trusted her throughout the process. We also really liked the real estate attorney, Bonnie Keating, and inspector, Jack Schubert from Inspection Concepts, that she recommended. In the end, we closed on our dream home, and we are thrilled! We highly recommend Mary!
Mary helped me buy my first house and it was a wonderful experience. Throughout the whole process Mary was both my adviser and advocate. She saved me time, headaches and found the perfect home for me. Perhaps the best example of her role as an advisor and advocate was how she found my home. I found a property in my ideal neighborhood but it was under contract with another buyer shortly after its arrival on the market. Mary was quick to find a similar property that was even better! She searched properties like it that were previously on the market but current not active. She contacted the agent and was able to get me an appointment. Had she not been pro-active and just waited until it came back on I might have gotten into a bidding war and/or lost out on the property. Mary was noted the addition on the back of the house as a major perk. I didn't think much about it because I was more concerned about my commute time. But now that I live in the house I can't imagine purchasing a similar property without the additional space. After Mary found the property, she was great to work with throughout the "under contract" period. She was quick to respond and patient- even when she had to explain the difference between a home inspection and a home appraisal five different times. Mary is committed to helping her clients understand new terminology. Most importantly Mary is honest about the upsides and downsides of each property. I went into home ownership with the knowledge of the costs and benefits of my home. Over all Mary was fantastic to work with and I will continue to strongly recommend her to my friends and family. Rachel B.
Mary was an absolute pleasure to work with! Her advice at every stage was fantastic. She nailed our negotiation, hitting our target purchase price perfectly. Her recommendations for attorney, inspector, and broker were all great and had us closed on time, and with none of the stress we anticipated. For first-time buyers, we couldn't have asked for a smoother transition to home ownership! Thank you! Peter and Victoria
Mary Beirne was extremely helpful in our two real estate transactions - the purchasing of a condo and the sale of our house. She was very professional, accommodating, and provided excellent guidance throughout the way. We highly recommend her to anyone who is looking to purchase or sell real estate, as she is a top notch realtor! Bill and Karen
We feel so fortunate to have met you during our home search. You are truly the best! We greatly appreciate all the efforts and patience during .our search for our dream home. You had greatly exceeded our expectations of an agent, we always felt so comfortable and always put as a first priority. You listened to all of our wants and needs in a home and made sure we were well informed all along the way. Thank you for making our dream family home come true! With sincere thanks, The Whitters Family
Mary really knows the market and takes the time to walk through and explain every step of the selling process. I felt comfortable asking any question. She is honest, realistic, professional and works as a true partner - always calm and focused. You can trust her insights and experience. Tom W.
Mary was great to work with. We found our place in a timely manner and she flawlessly guided us through the process. I will not hesitate to use her again for my next search.
