Ann Marie McManus, Realtor
Born and raised in Augusta, Ann Marie began her career in real estate in 1984. Before following in her father’s footsteps to become a Realtor, Ann Marie pursued her own fearless footwork as a dancer. She traveled to small towns and great cities in the U.S. and Europe and was able to compare the quality of life in these places to Augusta. Between her classical ballet training and the academic accomplishment of graduating with honors from the College of Charleston while dancing with the Charleston Ballet, Ann Marie’s discipline, drive, and quickness on her feet made her the perfect fit to begin representing buyers and sellers in Augusta.
Today, Ann Marie continues to be one of Augusta’s top real estate professionals, with a sales record of over 1500 homes. Ann Marie and her team of carefully chosen professionals strive to make each client feel that he or she is their only client. She is continually training and holds more credentials in real estate than any other high producing Realtor in Augusta including Certified Residential Specialist, Certified Negotiation Expert and Certified Luxury Home Marketing Specialist. When not with a client, you’ll find Ann Marie at home, spending time with her husband of 28 years, Gene and their five young adult children.
Mary Bryans, Buyer Specialist
There’s always something about Mary. Did you know she can identify all abundance of floura and fauna in the Augusta area? As a child Mary’s dad gave her and each of her 4 siblings a little journal and a nickel for every bird or plant species they could identify. To this day, Mary enjoys getting away to Augusta’s natural treasure, Phinizy Swamp, to bird watch. She has also been on many exotic birding trips- the last one in Trinidad.
Just as Mary learned this unique talent – with zealous attention to detail – she identifies and understands the challenges buyers face today with the complexity and constant changes in mortgage banking regulation. Mary grew up in Augusta and spent many years in mortgage origination and banking – she’s even managed a complex medical practice! Mary has worked with Ann Marie’s team for over 10 years. Ann Marie loves Mary because of her integrity and Mary’s thorough knowledge of Augusta and its history. From home inspections to closing attorneys, Mary’s keen hand guides every aspect so you don’t have to!
