Mary Tess Bitanga Realtor®

Mary Tess Bitanga has been working in real estate for over 14 years. “Tess,” as her friends call her, covers Southern California in her role as Realtor. Her favorite part of the business is being out in the community she loves, meeting new people each day, and building lasting relationships with her clients.

Tess came into the real estate industry from the finance and insurance world. As a college intern, she worked for New York Life, where she earned her Life/Health license, in addition to the required Series 6 & 63 licenses. She was quickly recruited by a major insurance broker, selling insurance in most of the United States, before finally opening her own successful agency. At one point, a real estate investor approached Tess for help procuring an insurance policy for one of his investment properties. It was then that Tess became intrigued with real estate investing and the potential for profit and growth. She quickly realized that the real estate industry was a path for her to help people build their net worth using real estate. First time buyers, move up buyers and investors are a favorite client for that reason, but Tess is highly skilled and happy to work with both buyers and sellers.

As much as education is important to Tess, physical fitness has always played a pivotal role in helping Tess be able to get so much work done everyday. Before becoming a real estate agent, Tess danced professionally for the San Diego Stingrays and the San Diego Wildfire Basketball team, as well as the San Diego Gulls Hockey team and the San Diego Chargers football team. She is still very active, practicing Jazzercise, Zumba, hot yoga and of course, dance. Family life includes trips to local parks with her husband and children, traveling, and enjoying being home baking, crafting, movie watching and doing puzzles.

Tess has a naturally generous nature, and devotes much of her time to serving on her church hospitality team, volunteering at the senior center, leading Bible studies, and running for sponsorship to help fund the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. In fact, her motto is “Service above self,” and Colossians 3:23.

Tess wants to earn the privilege of being her clients’ “Realtor for life,” and she works hard to attain that. Past clients describe Tess as being knowledgeable, honest and caring, which describes her to a tee. For a high-principled, ethical and trustworthy Realtor, choose Tess.
