Door County Real Estate and MaryKay Shumway
If you follow Door County, Wisconsin real estate-related matters, you've seen my name on signs from Nasawaupee to Northport over the past 15 years. If you don't follow Door County real estate and are looking for someone in the industry, please allow me to introduce myself!
I've been a Wisconsin Licensed real estate Broker since 2004, and during that time, I have built my reputation on honesty, integrity and trust, working with people from around the nation and around the globe. I'm known as a hard worker, as someone that is constantly upping the bar for myself. I work in all price points, and each and every transaction is of equal importance to me. I am an Accredited Buyer Representative (ABR), a credential earned through the National Association of Realtors, as well as a Certified Residential Specialist (CRS) through the Residential Real Estate Council (formally the Council of Residential Specialists), the largest not-for-profit affiliate of the National Association of Realtors.
Welcome to Door County, Wisconsin: A Peninsula surrounded by approximately 300 miles of shore.
What makes me different? Well, first and foremost, I love what I do, and I like to have fun with what I do. If I can make you laugh while we first meet together, then I feel like I'm a success (and this is before I sell your home or help you find the perfect property). This is a serious business, with a lot of I's to dot and T's to cross, but Door County is beautiful, and I love being an ambassador for this incredible peninsula surrounded by water. Let's enjoy ourselves, because selling a property can be stressful and buying a property can be stressful. I'm here to try to make some of the headaches go away.
If you're a Buyer, we'll talk about what you really enjoy about Door County (not just about how many bedrooms and bathrooms you need); what your hobbies and interests are and work from there. If you love the water but can't afford to be on the shore, I'll let you know that you're never five minutes from water in any given location in northern Door County (I can walk to two beaches from my own home). If you love hiking, I'll introduce you to dozens of our State, County, Town and Village parks. Do you love dogs? I'll let you know where pet-friendly businesses, dog parks and other animal-friendly venues exist. I've helped hundreds of homeowners find the perfect locations for themselves and their families.

If you're a Seller, it may be a time of uncertainty. We'll talk about where you're going when you sell (I can even help refer you to other CRS members in this state and throughout the US). We will go through my marketing plan together and plan how best to showcase your own unique property for the quickest sale and the most amount of money possible.
As a Realtor, I am bound by a Code of Ethics and Standards of Practice, which begins by stating the Golden Rule: "Whatsoever ye would that others should do to you, do ye even so to them". Constant education in a constantly changing real estate market is a must. I'll keep on top of technology trends to help market (and use fantastic platforms, like Active Rain) and sell your home, or to find the property that is perfect for you.
Looking for something unusual? This Jacksonport home was one of my most unusual experiences.
I help people purchase and sell Door County homes, condominiums, businesses and vacant land. I've been active in new construction, working with builders and developers, in order to develop the product you want. I can recommend local builders to help you build your Door County dream home. I have a great supporting cast--wonderful colleagues, fantatic lenders, incredible title companies, thorough surveyors and home inspectors, and many more. I work with County, City and Village zoning and, of course, on a peninsula surrounded by water, we also work with the State (via the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources, the Wisconsin Department of Commerce and others).
I've worked with some crazy-unusual homes in my times--some of the largest in this state, some of the most unique people have seen, on both the listing and selling side, and it's always so interesting to find what we call a "hybrid" listing.
One of my favorite unique listings was a Norwegian compound--actually imported from Norway and featured in NatGeo.
