Oconomowoc woman gets real estate lifetime achievement award

After 52 years on the job, Shorewest Realtor Mary Steinke has been honored with the Lifetime Achievement Award from the Greater Milwaukee Association of Realtors.

Steinke, of Oconomowoc, was urged by her husband, Brian, a teacher and coach at the time, to get her real estate license in the late 1960s.

“I was rather content taking care of five small children,” Steinke said. “I was waitressing to supplement his income at Kettle Moraine High School when he just got started.” Brian Steinke taught history and coached cross country and track.

Always wanting to stay active, Steinke joined Shorewest’s Brookfield Square Shopping Center office in March 1968. Early in her career, she often brought her five young children along to showings.
