Michaela Widener - firstname.lastname@example.org Mary was great; I was living in California the whole time my house was on the market; Mary kept me informed at all times and went above and beyond my expectations. She watched out for the house and when it snowed, she drove up and down the driveway to make it easier for people to get in; she even shoveled the sidewalks!! Mary was patient with me as I asked questions; I had never sold a house before and didn't understand alot of the process, she explained things well. She hooked me up with an attorney. I would definitely recommend Mary to anyone; actually, I already have told people how awesome she is. I chose Mary because she has mailed me magnet calendars for years and I knew she was someone who knew my neighborhood. I would tell anyone that she can't be beat.
Maureen Jesuthasan - email@example.com Mary has helped me with two transactions; each experience exceeded my expectations. The first experience was specific to buying my first home; whereas, the second was selling the same home 6-years later.
The first home was the perfect for me so, she did not steer me into the direction of buying too much house that was beyond my budget. When we sold the very same home in 2009, I actually walked away with money in my pocket.
In summary, Mary is a true professional who respects her customers and goes out of her way to delight them.
Regina Vahldick - firstname.lastname@example.org A real go getter She went above and beyond Her personality and willingness to do anything possible to help. What I said above and more. She's the GREATEST!
