Mary Kay Gallagher: The Gaurd Dog

The real estate agent who is trying to sell a 12-room house on Marlborough Road isn't about to show the house to just anyone as she is very protective of her neighborhood. The 90-year-old real estate agent can tell the difference between those who are serious about buying and those who just like to stop an look.

The agent, who has been so since 1922, has patrolled and been selling homes in Prospect Parks, a 2.5 square mile section in Brooklyn. Many other agents call it a monopoly she has on the area. Because of this, many of her competitors don't get along with Gallagher, but some of her competition respect her and see her as an icon.
