Anya (Taschereau) Mashaney, born in Southern California, considers herself an Oklahoman after moving to Edmond when her family was relocated from Edwards Air Force Base to Tinker Air Force Base when she was eight years old. Her family settled in Northeast Edmond where Anya was home-schooled throughout her childhood. Home-schooling gave Anya extra time to serve her community. She actively volunteered through both First Christian Church of Guthrie and Edmond First Church of the Nazarene, Lunch on Noble, Coffee Creek Riding Center, Boy's Ranch Town, and many other local charities and events.
A graduate of the University of Central Oklahoma, Anya earned her Bachelor's Degree in Sociology with a focus on Human Services. While in college, Anya began her real estate career as an administrative assistant at a local independent boutique brokerage. She soon learned that while real estate had never been on her radar, it was a perfect fit for her personality and, surprisingly, went hand-in-hand with her education. Anya soon go her real estate license and used her experience from advertising listings, handling contracts, and coordinating closings to bring her knowledge and customer service mentality to her clients. Anya then obtained her broker's license at age 25 - a choice that allowed her to best serve other agents on her team and further demonstrate her willingness to learn, grow, and achieve.
Anya has served on the Oklahoma City Metropolitan Association of Realtors’ Professional Standards committee and is a graduate of OKCMAR’s Leadership Tomorrow (LT7), currently attending Leadership OAR’s academy, and is the Chair of OKCMAR's Young Professionals Network, RISE OKC.
