Maren Brisson-Kuester

View My Listings 
I believe you have to have a passion for what you do. Other than my family, real estate is my passion. My clients' wants and needs are my top priority. Whether it is assisting in the search for a new home or selling an existing one, I will work side-by-side with my clients to realize their ultimate goals. I believe in building lifelong relationships and enjoy nothing more than working with my clients for years to come.

Maren was born in Charlotte, NC and was raised in Weddington, NC.  She left to attend college in Columbia, SC at the University of South Carolina.  Upon her return she worked in marketing until receiving her real estate license in 2003 and embarking on her real estate career.   Maren quickly achieved top producer status and has remained one of the top producers at her firm since 2006. Real estate has always been her primary passion as evidenced in her leadership roles within the local, state, and national organizations.  She served as a two term president for the Charlotte Regional Realtor®s Association in 2015and 2016 and she has been elected to serve as the president of the NC Realtor®s in 2020.  She is a passionate public speaker and is always giving back to her industry.  She is deeply involved in Charlotte’s philanthropy community as well. She has served as chair and championed many non-profit organizations in the Queen City. She has also always been extremely involved in the school community at Charlotte Preparatory School where her children attend.  She believes that a great Realtor® doesn’t just provide excellent service to their clients. Rather they continue those efforts by dedicating their talents in other ways to be able to encourage economic, and personal growth in our community by supporting the residents throughout various philanthropic organizations. 


Because of her many contributions to the industry and the Charlotte community, Maren has been the recipient of several awards.  She was named the Charlotte Regional Realtor®s’ Realtor® of the Year in 2016 for outstanding contributions to her industry and the community; which is the organizations highest honor.  She has been recognized by the NC Realtor®s Association with an Outstanding service award and won the Chairman’s Award three years in a row (2015-2017) for outstanding fundraising and advocacy efforts.  She received the Hall Of Fame award in 2018 from the National Association of Realtor®s for her extraordinary commitment to the Realtor®s Political Action Committee.  She has also been recognized by the Charlotte business community as one of the Charlotte Business Journals “40 under 40” in 2016 and one of the “Top 25 Women in Business” in 2017.


In 2018 Maren joined Valerie and HM Properties in a brand new leadership role for the company.  All of her brokerage and leadership experience over the years culminated in this new relationship with one of the area’s most Preeminent broker owners.  Together they look forward to continuing and improving the exemplary service they have provided their clients for over 15 years.  She resides in the Barclay Downs neighborhood with her sons Reid (12) and Dillon (8); their two dogs Callie and Charlie and Cole their cat.

Best in Charlotte! Give her a call.

Adam M

Professional, smart, driven and an absolute expert on the Charlotte market. Maren recently sold our house in just one day for 99 percent of our list price and wiht zero issues along the way. Not only did she handle the sale beautifully, but her advicce to us when we bought the house five years ago was spot on. My husband and I agree completely that hiring Maren was one of the best decisions we ever made. Whether you're buying or selling, maren is the woman for the job. I highly recommend her (and wish we could clone her now that we've moved out of the Charlotte area!)

Stacey A
