In this market, I was not looking forward to the trials of putting my house up for sale, but it was something that I needed to do.
This said, I initially went with my previous broker, and all I experienced was frustration and grief.
It was at this point that I knew I needed to make a change, and fast. I saw your real estate signs on a few of the houses in my neighborhood, and decided to make the call.
My impression of you from that very first phone call was that of a true professional, and it was truly a welcome change. From that point on, every e-mail, phone call and meeting that I've had with you, I felt very confident that I was in good hands. You were always quick to respond to all my inquiries which were all encouraging and extremely helpful. This is clearly derived from your experience in the business, and most of all, your true dedication to your clients.
My house was sold in a short time frame, relative to the market, and I know it had a lot to do with the marketing, the follow up and the strategic suggestions that you provided for me.
I can not thank you enough for making this so smooth and painless for me. You set the standard for all realtors, and I will be proud to recommend you to all my friends and family.
My sincerest thanks, **JT , Manassas, VA**
"Mary has an excellent personality and is an excellent adviser. She was accessible to us and listened to the upmost. There is nothing she needs to do to improve her services and we will use her services again and will gladly recommend her to others. Mary was an angel sent to us. Her concern for my family was total nine yards. Her guidance was to the extreme. There should be more like her in this world. We appreciate everything she did for us."
