Hi! I’m Mary Courtney! Yep, two names, no hyphen.


I was born in Wisconsin, raised in North Carolina, and the oldest of my four incredible siblings!

I traveled down to Clemson University for College. I met my (now) best friend Kit in 2009 at Clemson, danced with him for the first time in 2010, started dating him in 2011, and we got married in August 2014. We haven’t left good ‘ole South Carolina since.

We cheer for the Clemson Tigers, Denver Broncos, and Carolina Tar Heels (actually just I cheer for UNC, Kit likes Syracuse). My husband Kit is an incredible skier, talented woodworker, and loves me deeper than anyone else.

Some of my favorite things include (but are not limited to): a good selfie, folded laundry, vinyasa yoga, sturdy bendy straws, my gold hoop earrings, teaching Pure Barre, rearranging furniture in our house, a cold glass of Champagne, dancing in the kitchen with Kit, and trying to make our golden retriever Bella smile for a picture.

I am a Buyers' Agent and REALTOR here in Columbia, SC with The Art of Real Estate as well as a Pure Barre Instructor and my husband is an account manager for SoftDocs. I am honored to share with you bits of Columbia, our home, organization tips, running adventures, and life with my biggest fan.
