Mary Jane Madden
- (925) 980-1664
Mary Jane (MJ) is a California native, attended private schools in the Oakland hills and finished her schooling at San Jose State.
MJ’s business career began working in the Legal Department of Bank of America, managing a team for HUD in San Francisco and then for a real estate developer who convinced her to get her real estate license.
MJ has been successfully selling for over 37 years and has worked all of Contra Costa County. Nine years ago MJ decided to join the ranks of Rossmoor Realty. Her desire to work in a defined community with a “family feeling” business attracted Mary Jane and prompted her to change direction from the hectic whirlwind of serving the entire county. Working exclusively in Rossmoor and that being her ONLY focus seemed right!
MJ’s business consists of a sound marketing plan and invaluable knowledge of the entire real estate industry. Knowing that one’s home is usually one’s most important asset, MJ treats every transaction with utmost respect. Mary Jane monitors every detail of a given transaction, maintains constant communication and gives honest and forthright answers at all times.
In 1995, MJ received her CRS designation (Certified Residential Specialist) – a distinction that is achieved by few realtors and has received numerous Testimonial Awards. MJ attends many legal seminars and webinars to keep abreast of upcoming law changes and keeps ahead of the curve with her knowledge.
MJ’s life is well balanced with a business that she actually loves being involved in and a family life with an incredible husband of 38 years, 2 grown and wonderful sons with awesome wives and a very special grandson. Balance equals Happiness!

Mary Jane has been selling homes throughout Contra Costa County since 1980 and nine years ago joined Rossmoor Realty. She earned her CRS designation in 1995 and fewer than 5% of REALTORS own this. Here are a few notable remarks from some of her clients:
“I had the pleasure of working with Mary Jane Madden on the purchase of my previous condo and then later the sale of another condo. She is a professional and knowledgeable realtor who cares very much for the people she works with and she delivers on everything she omits to. From the beginning and throughout the closing process Mary Jane was always on top of every little detail. I appreciated her constant calmness and dedication. I would highly recommend Mary Jane Madden to anyone looking to buy or sell in the Walnut Creek area.”
– Erin Michaels

“Mary Jane was amazing!! She worked very hard for us and gave excellent advice. She was knowledgeable about marketing, selling homes in Rossmoor and about all of the laws, rules & ordinances within the community. And, talk about paperwork – whew! She was detail-oriented and always on top of everything that needed to be done. She kept us informed about the status of the sale (even when she was on vacation out of the USA) and quickly responded to our calls and emails. She was flexible, calm and reassuring when some house and sale-related complications arose. She was always helpful and pleasant. Your company is truly blessed to have her working for you!! We certainly felt blessed to have her working for us!”

“Mary Jane – thank you for being the absolute best real estate agent ever! You guided me through the process with warmth & professional assurance. I always felt safe with you. You made buying my Co-Op a super experience and I’m so happy that I got to share it with you. Honestly, I probably wouldn’t have purchased in Rossmoor if anyone else had been my agent. Thank you, thank you!”

“Mary Jane was an exceptional agent from beginning to end; she was an incredible help in all phases of the sale of my condo. MJ took care of everything from setting up painters, flooring professionals, cleaning, staging and answering all of my questions. She soothed all of my fears; she was upbeat, truthful, professional and caring. I had moved to Colorado and MJ did all of this long distance. I would highly recommend Mary Jane Madden to anyone who inquired about her abilities and professionalism!! I consider her a valuable asset and a rare commodity in the real estate world. Rossmoor Realty is lucky to have her as a representative and agent!! Thank you Mary Jane! We couldn’t have done it without you!”

Most of all, her encouragement and friendly, cheerful attitude help make the burden of purchasing a “new” home a very pleasant experience!”
