Mary Leigh Felix
Mary Leigh Felix is a Huntsville, Alabama native – born and raised – and is proud to call this growing city home! She graduated from Auburn University with a degree in Supply Chain Management and has always had a passion for process improvement, workflows, customer experience, and all things supply chain. After she graduated, she went on to work in Supply Chain Management for Home Depot corporate in Atlanta, GA where she met her (now) fiancé, Cody. They both spent their free time (when away from the corporate hustle and bustle) obsessing over real estate, following the market, and keeping up with design trends. As they found themselves spending more and more time in the real estate world, they both decided to become part-time agents in Atlanta, Georgia. Fast forward a year later and they landed back in Mary Leigh’s hometown, Huntsville, Alabama! Being in real estate has given Mary Leigh an opportunity to combine her analytical, process-driven approach to consulting and client service with her love for all things home and design. She truly cares about her clients and the organic business that she is building. Whether she is helping a family land their dream home, or an investor find their next deal to grow generational wealth, a home is one of the largest investments a person can make and she is grateful to get to guide her clients through the transaction every step of the way! Mary Leigh began writing for Huntsville Magazine to share her love for Huntsville, real estate and all things home.
