Mary Beth Anderson, Realtor (218) 252-1560 marybeth@unitelc.com

Mary Beth grew up on a working farm near Madison, Minnesota. She attended Moorhead State University, majoring in Elementary Education, and went on to obtain a Master’s Degree in Elementary Education from Bemidji State University. Her teaching career began in the South Washington County School District and was primarily in the city of Woodbury.

 Mary Beth and her husband Rob spent many great weekends at their lake cabin on Palmer Lake near Park Rapids. As time went on, the question arose…”What if we actually lived in this beautiful part of Minnesota year ‘round and left the city and the traffic behind?” And so they bought a home on Big Sand Lake and have never looked back. Park Rapids quickly became home (they are both small town folks) and church, golf, fishing, hunting, dog walking, and comparing notes with lots of other “Twin City Transplants” became a way of life.

 Mary Beth thrives on the busy and ever changing world of Real Estate. She enjoys the challenge of finding that "just right" property for her buyers. Sellers can list their property with the confidence that Coldwell Banker and Mary Beth will do their best to market and sell their property quickly and efficiently. Stop in or give Mary Beth a call or an email to discuss your unique real estate needs.
