The Greater Erie Board of Realtors (GEBOR) honored Mary Huffman as the 2013 Realtor of the Year on Friday during the Realtor luncheon.
Huffman has been a Realtor for almost 20 years. She started her career with RE/MAX Real Estate Group in 1994 and moved to Marsha Marsh Real Estate in 2010.
A graduate of Gannon University, Huffman is married to Clint and the mother of two sons, Ryan and Connor.
GEBOR president Jim McGoey praised her community involvement with efforts for Habitat for Humanity, Alzheimer’s Association, American Cancer Society, Leukemia and Lymphoma Society, March of Dimes, Children’s Miracle Network and more. Huffman is also a well-known cake decorator, who often baked special cakes and cupcakes for the nonprofits that she works with.
A graduate of McDowell High School, Mary was a star soccer player, leading scorer and MVP during her senior year. A former soccer coach for Erie Youth Soccer, she has served as president of the Erie Admirals Soccer Boosters. Her son, Ryan, a senior at McDowell, made the All-District 10 Team chosen by the Erie Times-News.
Huffman served as president of GEBOR in 2007 and is a consistent multi-million dollar producer. She is also credited with creating a newsletter for local Realtors.
When she was named Realtor of the Year, Huffman expressed surprise and emotionally thanked her husband and family. She joked that her son had recently turned 18 and could become a Realtor. She credited the idea to the Marsh Team — Marsha Marsh and her sons run Marsha Marsh Real Estate.
Congratulations, Mary Huffman.
