PRINT

With extensive experience in the industry and a friendly personality, Mary Heck is your advocate for real estate and title services. Mary Heck began her career as a title examiner with the Chicago Title office in Champaign, Illinois, later becoming the office manager of the Chicago Title office in Peoria, Illinois. After that, she entered private practice joining the Peoria law firm Dixon, Laukitis & Downing (Heck) PC, where she formed DLD Title Services. DLD Title would later have a change in ownership and become H&H Title Services. For more than 30 years, Mary has been working in the field of title insurance and closing services in the Peoria area, and in 2022 she joined the real estate and title division of Heyl Royster.

Mary recognizes that she and the staff are customer service providers providing title and closing services to buyers, sellers, realtors, attorneys, and loan officers while at the same time ensuring clear title. Prior to a closing, she and the staff work closely with the parties involved to aid in the clearance of title issues and to provide a timely and smooth closing. Mary is very excited about joining forces with Heyl Royster's Residential Real Estate and Title Services Practice and continuing to provide professional title and closing services in the Peoria area.

Mary received her J.D. from Southern Illinois Law School and a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Classical Studies from Duke University, Durham, NC. She grew up in Decatur, Illinois, where both her grandfather and father practiced law at the law firm of Downing, Smith, Jorgenson and Uhl. After graduating from law school, her father, a title agent of Attorney's Title, encouraged her to join Chicago Title in Champaign, Illinois. She enjoys spending time outdoors and is an avid hiker on the local trails and vacations. She also enjoys biking, swimming, gardening, and birdwatching. Mary is a certified Les Mills RPM instructor and teaches several classes at the Clubs at River City.
