Hello, my name is Mary Cardany. I was born in Washington, D.C. and I have lived my entire life in the metropolitan area suburbs of Maryland. I am a graduate of Immaculata Preparatory School in the district and have always worked in either Frederick or Montgomery County. I am passionate about my family life, and hold dear the strong values I learned while growing up. Since then, I have focused on teaching those same values to my three wonderful children, Kristin, Katie and Mike. I have always cherished my ability to build strong relationships and to be an active memeber of my community. Over the years, I feel that I have succeeded in doing that while working in the dental field and now as a partner with my husband, Al, in our real estate business. My mission is to be relentless in helping those who seek my assistance, and to persist in helping them meet their goals. Through experience, integrity, and a strong knowledge of our community, I feel that I am thoroughly prepared to do just that.

Proven Success with Al & Mary Cardany...
"Al and Mary's style is built around a no-pressure, professional approach with an emphasis on diligence, thoroughness and integrity". Dr. and Mrs. Irv Davis, Bethesda, MD
"Both Al and Mary, as a native Washingtonians, truly know the local housing market. They offer their clients up-to-date knowledge on property values, schools, employment and recreational benefits offered in the region". Bill & Suzanne Kern, Olney, MD
"I have known Al and Mary Cardany and their family for 29 plus years, and know them to have exceptionally high standards and diligence in everything they do. I know they will do no less for you!". Cynthia Hines, Rockville, MD
"It was an easy choice to go with Al and Mary when we decided to change homes. Their reputation for professionalism and successful marketing proceeded them. We promptly found a new home that is ideal for us, and even though the market has slowed a bit, we were able to have our prior home under contract within ten days of listing. This is remarkable! And they make the process fun! We strongly recommend that you look to Al and Mary when buying or selling a home. We used them for both." Bill and Dayna Tucker, Highland, MD
"If it were not for Al and Mary's knowledge of the current market, presentation of our home, and continuous attention to details, we feel we would not have sold our home." Terry and Carole Michnya, Mt. Airy, MD
"It was a pleasure working with Mary and Al. They assisted me with all phases of the selling process. The marketing materials that they put together for my home were of the highest quality and brought out the best features in my home. Whenever I had a question, Mary or Al would get back to me right away. All aspects of the sales transaction went smoothly, and I really appreciated the Cardanys' expertise and counsel to guide me through that process. Mary and Al are courteous, personable, conscientious and thorough. I would recommend them to anyone trying to sell a house in a difficult market." Jill Schulman, Arlington, VA
"We switched to Al and Mary from another realtor in the middle of our home buying and selling process and it was the best decision we could have made! As sellers, we were thrilled that they were able to sell our house for a good price in a very difficult market. They worked hard to do it! They did excellent and extensive marketing, followed up with each person who looked at the house, and communicated with us daily about how things were going. As buyers they worked hard to help us find the perfect house for us and then walked us through each step of the buying process. Their advice was always excellent. They were professional, responsive, patient and friendly through the months we worked with them. At the end of the process, not only did we feel we'd found our realtors for life, but good friends as well." Amy Hansen, Gaithersburg, MD
"I am writing this letter to express my sincere appreciation and gratitude for the outstanding job that Al and Mary Cardany did as our real estate agents in the recent sale of our home. I'm not usually one to write this type of letter, but my wife and I were so impressed with not only the amount but also the quality of Al and Mary's work in helping us to sell our house that I knew that I had to do something to acknowledge their extraordinary efforts. Even so, try as I might otherwise, this letter doesn't come close to conveying just how thankful we are for everything that Al and Mary did for us in the process of selling our house.
Before we were fortunate enough to meet Al and Mary, our house had been on the market for more than eight months with a very high profile real estate group. Despite lowering the price on the house five times, resulting in a net drop of over $140,000, we did not receive a single offer on the house. After twice delaying our relocation to another state, we finally had no choice but to buy a second house and move out of the area before our original home sold. We signed on with Al and Mary the day before we moved, which left them with only one day to take any pictures before the house was empty. Even with that disadvantage, both the printed materials and the web presentation were absolutely stunning. Our former house is a contemporary with an open floor plan and some very unique features that would likely appeal to a specific type of buyer. Al's pictures and the Shangri-la theme used to market the house captured perfectly the essence of the house, and after months of the house was not what we expected comments from showings with the previous realtor, we received an offer in less than 30 days from a buyer who saw the house on the internet and specifically asked their realtor to show them the house. With Al's guidance and negotiating acumen, this first offer was turned into a sale, and we closed on the house less than two months after listing it with the Cardanys.
As impressive as the end result was with Al and Mary, the process itself was equally as impressive and probably what we are most grateful for in having them as our real estate agents. Despite being almost 400 miles away, I knew that our house was in excellent hands with the Cardanys. In addition to updates on showings and the status of the listing every couple days, Al also made a point to check in on the then-vacant house at least once a week to make sure that everything was in order. Also, after the house was under contract, Al went to the house on multiple occasions to meet inspectors and/or contractors for us, and even went so far as to fill and drain the hot tub at the house twice so that it could be inspected. Still, despite going way above and beyond the call of duty as our agents, not once did Al or Mary ever make us feel like we were imposing on them or their time. Working with the two of them was truly a pleasure they are not only outstanding real estate agents, they are also quite simply great people. And as happy as my wife and I are that we sold our house, we are just as happy that we sold our house with Al and Mary Cardany as our agents."
Chris Derickson, Dayton, MD
"It was indeed a pleasure to work with you both on the sale of our home. Your marketing skills on the property were superb, especially in this challenging market. Your advice and guidance were critical every step of the way throughout the process from listing to settlement. We could not have had better counsel!" Roger and Diane Cavanaugh, Rockville, MD
"Al and Mary's careful thought and preparation on the sales brochure and website presentation was outstanding. Their attention to detail is excellent!" Tom and Christine Guarino, Germantown, MD
"It was a pleasure to work with Al and Mary as they were both extremely professional from the beginning of the process right through the end. We really appreciated the attention to detail that was given to the printed materials like the sales brochure and mailings. We also thought they did a fantastic job on the virtual tour of our house which was posted on their website as well as an endless number of additional internet sites. We would strongly recommend Al and Mary to anyone planning to buy or sell, especially in this difficult market." Tommy and Paula Wehrung, Highland,MD
"It was a pleasure working with Mary and Al in the process of selling my house. I was impressed with their knowledge, professionalism and their fantastic personal touch when I purchased my home 7 years ago and decided then that they were going to be my realtors when I retire and need to sell my home. I believe that the keen knowledge that they had of the current market, the suggestions they made for staging my home and the the virtual tour they created for my home were key in my home being under contract within a week of the listing being posted online. I would recommend them to anyone interested in buying or selling their home. Larry Hamm, Germantown, MD
