Featured Attendee

Twenty years ago, Maureen Francis left the United States to work as a business advisor in the first group of US Peace Corps volunteers to serve in the former Soviet Union. After nearly a decade in advertising and management consulting in Ukraine, Maureen found a new calling: residential real estate sales in her hometown of Birmingham, Michigan.

Since 2001, Maureen and her husband, Dmitry Koublitsky, have helped home buyers and sellers share their love for all that Metro Detroit offers. Maureen’s interests in technology and early adoption of social media differentiated the husband and wife team as they were breaking into a brand new field, essentially in a new country. Today, Maureen proudly serves as the Treasurer of the Greater Metropolitan Association of REALTORS® and the President-Elect of the Birmingham Bloomfield Chapter of the Women’s Council of REALTORS®. Participation in these groups has strengthened her dedication to our industry.

Maureen’s other passions are growing heirloom tomatoes, raising one precocious nine-year-old, and traveling off the beaten path.
