"We are Canadians who bought a home in Casa Grande. We could not have done this with such ease had it not been for Mary Lou and her team and all the work they did on our behalf. We are very grateful to have had her as our real estate agent and would highly recommend her to anyone interested in purchasing a property in Casa Grande."
Short Sale Experience
I would like to take a minute to thank Mary Lou for the outstanding service she has provided me from day one. I was at a very difficult time in my life, when I was suddenly laid off and had to leave my home behind and start from scratch. I had tried short selling my house with my realtor at the time, but he seemed to have no faith in my home. I trusted him and thought he was doing everything he possibly could, but it seemed like he just wanted me to give him a reason to stop trying. Finally one day, he gave up on me, and wished me luck. I was DEVASTATED. I am not one to give up without a fight, I am also not one to lose faith that easily. I feel that running into Mary Lou was a Godsend, in every sense of the word. Not only did she pick up where my realtor had left off, but she made the transition smooth and easy for me. She took into consideration “me as a person” and not just a dollar sign. She is very ethical and always got back to me within “minutes” of my calls or emails ( which is more than I can say about other realtors I’ve worked with). It has been a long process, considering the economy and the market, but after more than a year of patience and calls and emails, Mary Lou was able to get my house sold on short sale. I could not be more grateful to her for her understanding, compassion and professionalism. She is definitely my number one reference if you are ever in need of a GREAT realtor. I hold her highly in book, as a person and as a professional woman. Thank you Mary Lou, and may God Bless you! Stephanie J.
South Dakota Clients
We are writing this reference for Mary Lou Carbajal who we have worked with as our realtor in the Casa Grande, Arizona area for the past three years. We have purchased fourteen homes in this area in the past three years using Mary Lou as our realtor. She is the most professional and efficient person we know. She has a great sense of humor and always looks out for her client. She’s been a great pleasure to work with and we highly recommend anyone wishing to sell or purchase a home to use her as their realtor. Keith & Linda Kuchenbecker Rapid City, South Dakota
Dear Mary Lou and Ekaterina, We want to express our extreme satisfaction in dealing with both of you in our purchase this year of our new home in Arizona City. Everything you both did for us was just "first rate" and made our buying experience so much easier than expected. We’ve heard so many horror stories of people who get saddled with realtors who can’t be bothered to keep scheduled appointments, don’t complete paperwork in a timely manner, or who lead buyers into looking at properties that they can’t really afford. You had been recommended to us by good friends who purchased a home in Arizona City a few years ago, and we’re so grateful to them also for steering us in your direction because they were also two happy customers. We’re also amazed at the consideration you’ve given us by going "above and beyond" even after the sale. Thank you again so much for checking on our Arizona home in our absence, sending photos, and lately discovering a water leak problem which needed to be addressed. Our gratitude to you both literally knows no bounds. If you wish, feel free to use this letter as a testimonial. You’ve more than earned it! Yours truly, Darlene and Dennis Tervo
East Coast Buyer
I believe Mary Lou to be completely up front and honest. Also, she has the experience to know all of those little important details. Buying a home with her was a very easy and streamlined experience. I highly recommend her services. Robert Kline
2nd Home Buyer
From the moment Tom & I walked into Mary Lou & Ekaterina's office we felt at ease. Their knowledge of the area and helpfulness in finding homes that met our criteria was quick and efficient, as time was a factor for us as well. We were able to view many homes, and we are happy to say we found a couple that we considered making an offer on. We closed on our choice property within 2 months; not only were they helpful during this time but have continued to help us with services/info after we closed on the property. They provided us with "peace of mind" as we currently commute from out of state. We would definitely recommend Mary Lou & Ekaterina to other potential buyers!! Karen and Tom
