Langlois appreciates this special community

When Mary Ellen Langlois moved to Fallbrook in 2000, she never anticipated feeling such a strong bond with her new community. This endearing connection to her town inspired her to become a Realtor.

“It was Fallbrook that got me started in the real estate industry,” said Langlois, who is affiliated with Coldwell Banker Landmark Group.

Although a resident of San Diego North her whole life, when it was time to purchase property with more land, she headed east and found herself in Fallbrook. At first, Langlois admits, there were challenges with the move.

“I really honestly came here kicking and screaming because I did not want to be here,” she said, “but within six months I was so involved with the community you couldn’t pry me out of here.”

Langlois was amazed how kind everyone was in Fallbrook. She received a flurry of welcome baskets filled with baked goods and other treats.

“The more I got to know the community, the more I realized this was the perfect place for me to be.” And more importantly, the perfect place to work.

In real estate, Langlois’ specialty lies in residential, horse property and groves. Knowledgeable of all of North County, she is glad to assist those interested not only in the greater Fallbrook area but the surrounding communities as well.

Having an in-depth background in hotel management and owning her own public speaking bureau, Langlois is notably adept in negotiations. “I consider myself an expert in win/win contract negotiations and I have years of experience in it.”

Likewise, after years in the hotel industry, Langlois was educated in how to always put the client first. “I am cognizant of my client’s needs and I want them to walk away knowing that I did the best for them,” she said.

This winning combination of talent in both negotiating and high-caliber customer service is what has made Langlois a top producer at Coldwell Banker Landmark Group.

Working at Coldwell Banker Landmark Group has been an incredible experience, Langlois said. The character of people she has come into contact with has been “nothing short of extraordinary.”

This became even more apparent when Langlois became ill about a year after joining Coldwell Banker Landmark Group.

“I received a Stage IV ovarian cancer diagnosis for the second time in my life, after 19 years of being free of it,” she said. “What this community did for me, at Coldwell Banker Landmark Group, was an unbelievably humbling experience.”

Langlois could best describe their actions as creating a net of support underneath her to keep her from falling.

“With the help of this organization and the whole community, I was able to do the treatments I needed to do, get myself back on track and get myself back to work,” she said. “I am feeling great.”

Although she didn’t realize it at first, moving to Fallbrook was a blessing, she said. And although the real estate market is at a low right now, she believes it will bounce back once again.

With her talent in public speaking, Langlois volunteers her time at speaking engagements for the American Cancer Society and Fallbrook Hospital’s Healthy Woman program. “I am always honored to be standing before cancer survivors, cancer patients and their loved ones.”

Langlois sits on the advisory board for Healthy Woman and was once the survivorship chair in the Relay for Life in Fallbrook. She is also looking forward to being a guest speaker at a PEO (Philanthropic Educational Organization) event.

Be it while conducting her real estate business or volunteering her time to worthy causes, Langlois has the ability to do things with impeccable professionalism, character and integrity. She has learned to live in the moment, embrace change and never lose her sense of humor.

“I got into real estate because I fell in love with Fallbrook,” she said. “However, I’ve stayed in real estate because I fell in love with helping buyers and sellers realize their dreams!”
