Mary Bruin



about Me

After buying & selling 9 homes of their own, Tim and his wife Mary joined forces in 2007 to build the Bruin and Bruin Real Estate Team. Mary’s strengths are being able to understand a client’s needs whether that’s selling or buying a home and Tim’s strengths are on the financial & negotiating end. They’ve sold over $100 million in sales, 75% of that being Point homes & homes in surrounding neighborhoods.

Tim grew up in Lima, OH. He has an Economics & Finance degree from Ohio University, where he attended on a tennis scholarship. Tim was a corporate group health rep for Aetna, Cigna & Prudential, before owning his own group health insurance agency.

Mary is from Pekin, IL & has a Marketing degree from Anderson University, Anderson, IN. She was a jewelry rep for ArtCarved & Olinger, before becoming a stay-at-home mom in 1995.

Tim & Mary moved to Mooresville, NC in 2004. Seven of those years they owned in The Point, where they raised their family & enjoyed The Point community.

Tim & Mary have two sons, Caleb, a graduate of UNC Charlotte and Clay, a graduate of UNC Chapel Hill. They have lived on Lake Norman since 2004 & truly embody their tag line….Live the Lake!


“Tim and Mary Bruin are phenomenal agents. They guided us through the sale of our home with responsiveness, live conversations, expertise on the neighborhood, and a thorough understanding of the process. We could not have been more impressed and highly recommend Bruin & Bruin!”

-- Terry & Jackie Pelino

“We saw on the internet that Bruin represented some of the bigger luxury home transactions in The Point. They scheduled showings on many properties. Once we found the home we loved, Tim’s process was so easy, and we felt completely at ease. Because of the Bruin’s expertise, we live in a premier luxury home in The Point.”

-- Kyle & Sara Cerminara

“Wow is the first word that comes to mind to describe the effort and job that Bruin & Bruin were able to accomplish for us. They were able to find our waterfront dream home on Lake Norman, negotiate the price with both owner and bank, help us get financing and close on the home in just two weeks!”

-- Jeff & Dee Arnold

“Bruin & Bruin delivered for us in a big way. Not only was he able to show us as many homes as we needed to see during our weekend visit, we saw a home that we thought was totally out of our price range. This waterfront home was the one we wanted. Tim and Mary new enough about the history of this home to negotiate the price into our range.”

-- Gary & Lynn Finizio

Tim and Mary were wonderful. We fell in love with our house at first sight. They have made moving across the country so easy for us, wonderful caring people. Both Tim and Mary not only made the process seamless but they have become good friends. We feel at home here because of them.
