Mary Couros

Deputy Lord Mayor / North Ward Councillor

Councillor Mary Couros

I am a successful Real Estate agent with over 25 years of experience in the industry. A daughter of Greek migrants, born and raised in Adelaide, I have hard work and honesty instilled in me from an early age where I worked at the family’s Snack Bar in the city of Adelaide.

I have a vivid recollection of North Adelaide as a child, where my mother worked for many years at Helping Hand and Hotel Australia, the now Brougham Place. As an adult, I frequented the many North Adelaide businesses on O’Connell Street and Melbourne Street to spend time with friends, family and shop. My passion for the precinct grew even more, especially in recent times supporting my life partner’s restaurants in North Adelaide for the past seven years.

A mother of two children and stepmother of three, juggling family and running my own business, I learnt very quickly the importance of work-life balance, without compromising my commitment to both.

Mary Couros was elected as a Councillor for the North Ward of the City of Adelaide in 2018 and will serve as Deputy Lord Mayor from December 2020. This represents the first time women have held both leadership roles for the City of Adelaide since 1999.

A daughter of Greek migrants, born and raised in Adelaide, her first work experience was at her family’s Snack Bar in the city of Adelaide. Couros now owns and operates multiple businesses with her partner, including Ruby Red Flamingo, Tony Tomatoes, and L’italy, located in North Adelaide.

She holds a Diploma in Business and Real Estate and has more than 25 years’ experience in the real estate industry, working across administration, property management and sales.

Couros is the owner and a Director of in 2 Real Estate. She also gained international marketing experience in Singapore where she worked as a Marketing Executive. Couros is a Board member of the Adelaide Convention Bureau.
