What did you want to be when you grew up?

I first wanted to be veterinarian. That dream ended in my biology class…not my forte. I considered art but decided that I liked to eat. Writing was a front-runner but again, food and shelter are a necessity. So, when I was in high school, I had a teacher who was teaching a class about real estate. She specifically explained to us how one could purchase a multifamily home and have very low expenses because the tenant’s rent would pay most, if not all of the mortgage payment! I realized that one could literally achieve the American Dream with some careful planning and a little luck. Wow! From that moment on I decided that that was going to be my route to independence.

How did I become involved in real estate?

After finishing that course on real estate, I decided that I wanted to take that route of purchasing a multi-family home and begin a life of my own. Eighteen years old, just out of high school and starting college, I realized I needed a job. So to finance my grand scheme I started as a waitress at night, went to school during the day, saved my money, and by the time I was twenty-three I had my down payment in hand. Here’s where my plan went out the window. I met my husband. Long story short, ended up getting married, bought the multi- family and started a family…a very big family. Six children and twenty-three years later the plan took some turns but the dream never died. We sold the multi, raised a family, put my husband through law school and to this day I still love houses! All houses! The best part of this story is that now I get to sell them. It is a wonderful thing.

What is your favorite motto?

I love mottos! They are so easy to plug into a situation and make some sense out of them. For example, “It wasn’t meant to be” is a great one, although I think it is slightly over used. Other mottos I am fond of are “Fake it till’ you make it”, “You get more with sugar than you do with vinegar”, “God doesn’t make junk” and “Be nice”. (I’m not sure if that last one is a motto, but it should be.)

What is your favorite movie?

Anything that makes me laugh. I refuse to see horror movies and I try to

stay away from sad movies; I could just watch the news.

What are you best qualities or greatest strengths?

Reasonable, honest and a little funny.

What is your favorite pastime?

Campfires. It sounds a little quirky, but I like sitting around a campfire at night with my family and friends… talking, playing games and singing with the kids.



Our mom had passed and we needed to list and sell her property. Our realtor Mary Edeen could not have been more attentive, thoughtful and considerate. Mary kept us informed and handled all the details, she made a difficult emotional situation bearable and everything went smoothly. I would highly recommend Mary and the Calcagni Real Estate Agency!

I just want to say thank you to Mary Edeen for helping me sell my home. It was on the market two days and I received an offer for full price.
Mary truly knows how to price a home to sell and assist you with what need to do to get it ready for a showing. I would recommend her to anyone!! She is the best. Thank you so much Mary Edeen!! She definitely gets a five star ⭐️

It is with pleasure to recommend her services to anyone looking to buy, sell or rent a home.”

She is thoroughly knowledgeable about the community and the market, is professional in her attention to every detail but most importantly she is approach able, honest and treats her clients as she would want to be treated.”

“Mary is among the best in her field. She did an outstanding job working with us on the sale of our property. Since it was occupied at the time she had to often coordinate with the tenant on showing times. From beginning to end Mary was professional, courteous and knowledgeable. We had never sold a home before and she was able to guide us along the way. Mary knows what it takes to get the job done.”

“Mary helped us during a trying time. Because of a death in the family, we needed to sell that home, our condo and buy another property. She was great, always available and supportive. She became part of the family. We recommend her with no reservations!”

“Mary was a great help in my home buying process. She worked around my schedule and showed homes to me at my convenience. I looked at many homes and Mary keep my spirits up that I would find the right one. When we did find the right one Mary negotiated well to get me a good deal.”

“Throughout much of the sales process on our house in CT, we had moved out and were living in FL. Mary, kept us up to date with all the activity going on with our house and when offers started to come gave us very good advice for us to move forward.”

“Mary helped me buy my first home and I could not have had a better experience. She found homes that were in my budget and matched exactly what I was looking for. She is always available through cell phone and is prompt to respond to any calls. I would recommend Mary to anyone looking to either sell or buy a home!”

“Mary was wonderful in helping me buy my first home. Because I was a first-time home buyer, I was totally unfamiliar with the process, but she helped me every step of the way, and made things easy. She was also great in explaining everything so I fully understood the process. When I was looking for a home in particular neighborhood and nothing was for sale at the time, Mary was proactive in sending out mailers encouraging an interested homeowner in the neighborhood to come forward. That was the home I ended up buying, and I absolutely love it! I was so satisfied with Mary as my relator, and I would recommend her to anyone in the market to buy or sell. “
