Mary
Sales Manager


As the eldest sibling in the Trade Mart Furniture Center family business, I have been involved nearly since Dad purchased the store in 1960. My expertise and commitment has always been sales. I love assisting residential and commercial clients with their furniture needs. As sales manager, I schedule and train others to give our clients the best possible service.

I grew up in Rochester and enjoy being involved in retail business in this progressive community. Our family owned store is truly a "mom-and-pop" business of the 21st century!

As a compliment to selling home furnishings, I also sell houses. Please visit my real estate website: http://www.marykuehn.edinarealty.com. Thank you for visiting our site...
