Mary Tennant - Keller Williams Realty

Mary Tennant

Member, Board of Directors


As a Keller Williams leader, Mary helps define the mission and vision for the company and to continue to raise the bar in terms of profits, productivity, training, tools, and culture.

Tall orders for a girl who grew up riding horses in the small community of Greeley, CO. But there is nothing typical about Mary. When she joined Keller Williams, in 1992, she was Rookie of the Year. Since then, she has continued to redefine what's possible, while opening doors of wealth building and leadership for countless real estate professionals.

Holding tight to her go-getter reins, Mary blew the hats off her colleagues. As Team Leader, she took the Austin Southwest market center from $90 million in closed volume to $1.3 billion in eight years. As Chief Operating Officer and President of Keller Williams, Mary helped lead the company to record productivity, profitability, and profit share gains. She has also been instrumental in the development of KW Cares, a charitable organization that distributes millions of dollars annually to Keller Williams associates and their family members in need.

Under Mary’s leadership, Keller Williams was named by Inc. Magazine as one of the Principal 10 Best Companies for Employee Financial Security and by Training Magazine as the world’s No. 1 training organization across all industries.

Mary joined the Keller Williams Board of Directors in 2015.

Acclaimed for her leadership, energy and passion, Mary has been recognized by her peers throughout the profession and in her local community. She has been celebrated as a Leading Woman in Real Estate by the Women's Council of REALTORS, received the Austin Business Journal's Profiles in Power Award and was named to the Inman 100 list of the industry’s most influential leaders. In 2016, Swanepoel named her one of the 20 most powerful women in residential real estate.

Hoping to be remembered as someone who made things better, Mary strives to keep learning each day. And she prides herself on the care with which Keller Williams associates take care of their family.

Mary and her husband, Jack, live in Austin. They have a stepson, Duane, two children, David and Jessica, and the world’s most phenomenal grandchildren.
