Mary is an architect, designer and, most importantly for Rudy, a workaholic. She brings creative ideas and a fresh perspective to every eye-sore Rudy buys. Rudy's lovely sushi restaurant was an abandon auto body shop until Mary got her hands on it and transformed it into a zen retreat. She brings the same energy and commitment to a small bungalow priced-to-sell as she does to a large home on the trendy side of town. Her impeccable taste and strong opinions sometimes clash with Rudy's singular focus on turning a profit, but today's discerning buyers want more for their money and Mary's designs reel them in. When she's not arguing about paint colors with Rudy, she's sprucing up commercial spaces, designing packages for kids toys and making the world a more beautiful place one project at a time.
