As your real estate consultant, The Cincinnati Team strives to continuously demonstrate, "Excellence in Action!" Mary Elsener, as Saralou Durham  has recently retired, focuses on your needs and goals, honestly explaining your options and providing the first class service you expect and deserve.

From a centrally located office in Hyde Park I service residential needs, primarily, but not exclusively, on the east side of Cincinnati, from Montgomery to Anderson, downtown to Mason, Mt. Adams to West Chester, Hyde Park to Loveland and everywhere in between.

What does that mean for you? Mary prides herself in being a real estate agent that is dedicated to giving you great service and who continually works hard in order to sell your home or find your dream home. 

My goal is to provide you, "Excellence in Action!"  

Our vision is to build lifelong relationships, one person at a time...beginning with you! 

Listen to what clients have said:

"I was relocating from New York to Cincinnati and needed to find a house quickly- My realtor in New York recommended Mary and the Preferred Group Team and I am so thankful she did! Mary helped me search for houses while still living in NY and even toured a house via Face Time when I wasn't able to travel to Cincinnati (which we ended up putting an offer on that same day!) She was so responsive, organized, and quick to act in my home buying process. I would recommend Mary and her team to anyone in the Cincinnati area and ESPECIALLY to those who are relocating to Cincinnati from other cities. She is very knowledgeable of the urban & historic neighborhoods that attract young professionals and families. She listened to our wants & needs and helped us find a perfect neighborhood and a home that checked all of our boxes."  - Madeline


"I worked for several years as a Realtor on a top-producing team in Lake Forest, Illinois before we had the opportunity to relocate our family to Cincinnati. So, I will be the first to tout the importance of having excellent representation in a Real Estate transaction. With Mary you get just that! Our whole family enjoyed getting to know her when she represented my sister-in-law on the sale & purchase side. I'm sure working with us wasn't a cake walk, but, Mary made it look easy. She is the consummate professional! She listens to her clients, she carries herself with the utmost diplomacy, she asks the tough questions, negotiates impeccably, arms herself & her clients with the best data and factors every angle in seamlessly. Her duty to the public and obligations under license law are honored with integrity, which is something that can not be said about many. She attends to every last detail with smile and always knows what to say & who to call! Take it from me, there are a million hats to wear in one day as a Realtor and Mary wears them all extremely well!" - Jennifer


"Mary helped us sell our home in what can be considered record time for the current market conditions. The marketing pieces that she created for our home were top notch and were one of the main reasons we had as much traffic as we did. She was also very conscientious about following up with each group that went thru our home so that we could collect feedback. When it came to searching for our new home, Mary was always patient and confident that we would find exactly what we were looking for even when we thought the search was hopeless. We of course found the perfect house and we wouldn’t have wanted to go thru this process with anyone other than Mary. She knew exactly when to step in and give us advice and when to step aside and let us make important decisions. She is a realtor that genuinely cares about her clients and their happiness." -  Kristin

"I cannot say enough about what a positive experience my husband and I had working with Mary as our realtor for both the recent sale of our home and the purchase of our new home. Although Mary has many clients, she made us feel like we were her only priority throughout the entire process. She is an organized professional and is highly communicative, guiding her clients through the often-times confusing process of selling/buying a home. We ran into several bumps in the road while finding our new home but Mary's positive outlook, patience and expertise kept us sane and calm." - Jeni
