My Resume

Mary Jo Williams, Principal Broker

Luxury Collections Specialist

Certified Negotiations Expert 


A significant part of my job is to ensure that your decisions are well-informed and your assets optimized – no matter what’s happening
in the market. You have every right to expect excellence!

Whether you are selling or buying a personal residence, or otherwise adjusting your real estate portfolio, I offer the benefit of more than 37 years of real estate sales, management and training experience in the Portland area.

It would be my pleasure to meet with you to discuss your real estate goals.

Top 5% of Realtors nationwide

My long track record of high sales volume is the direct result of my absolute commitment to respectyou and your objectives, and to work with you to achieve optimal results.


Many types of expertise are required to excel in the current marketplace. My team includes Gayleen Weiler, Clyde Clark, Jazz Heying and Cheryl Winter bringing superior transactional oversight, quality administrative skills, extraordinary marketing expertise and exceptional customer care to each transaction. Our service model provides unparalleled attention to ensuring that clients’ needs are supported with the right information and customer care during and after every sale.

We operate on the principle that the business of real estate is a process of discovery: often not linear, demanding thoughtful teamwork to achieve optimal outcomes. We ask that you team with us to work toward your goal; each of us having work to do in order to ensure a successful conclusion. Undertaking those tasks and knowing the importance of teamwork makes all the difference.

To that end, I have served on numerous committees at the local Portland Metropolitan Association of Realtors and the Oregon Association of Realtors including several years on the Professional Standards Committee (currently serving on this committee). Additionally,  I gladly donate a portion of my personal income to Transitional Youth, a program founded by Bert Waugh, Jr., that is committed to helping homeless youth find a constructive path in life.
