Testimonials for Mary Stewart
Having Mary as my realtor has been a true honor. She has had years of experience, and by working with her I could see that she is extremely knowledgeable. Even under my short budget and difficult taste, Mary was able to find remarkable homes that I have strongly considered. I am not surprised that Mary was selected as one of the best Portland Realtors in Portland Magazine...more

To whom it may concern,
(Expert real estate broker)
I have been a widower for a number of years and lived in an older home in need of multiple repairs. I had been trying to find a smaller place to live for some time but home prices were out of my reach. Prices eventually came down and I began to search again. I was apprehensive in regard to the process of house searching because previous contact with realtors had resulted in disinterest due to the fact that I did not have sufficient assets (because of inflated home prices) to purchase anything but a shabby fixer-upper home.
I reluctantly made contact with Mary when I saw an advertisement in a local newspaper. I was pleasantly surprised when talking with her! She was very upbeat and confident that she could find what I was looking for in my price range. This was so different than my previous correspondence with several realtors. In a very short time, Mary had allayed my fears and we began to work together to find a place which would be comfortable for me. She listened intently to what I wanted in a new home and we began to search. She helped me work through misconceptions in regard to what I thought would be the best place for me. Her focus was clearly to help me find a home in which I would be happy. She tried very hard to accommodate my needs and limitations, and even helped arrange for contractor services when the need arose. I was inexperienced and naïve in regard to the home purchase process and Mary spent time helping and explaining whatever I needed to know. She truly bent over backward to help me be as comfortable with the entire process as possible.
I would confidently recommend Mary Stewart to anyone who needs to buy or sell a home or property. She is wonderful to have working with you - honest, open, fair, and reliable. She will do her very best to accommodate your unique situation. I would work with her again in a heartbeat!
Mary did a great job for us - beginning with a very professional market analysis, and lots of good advice about things we could do to make the house show at its best. She understood our priorities - a quick sale in a falling market - and worked hard to make sure the property received maximum exposure to potential buyers. The house listed on October 1 and we accepted an offer exactly 4 weeks later (one of several, and above asking price). Escrow closed the first week of December 2008, a remarkable timeline in an extremely difficult market.
Ardie and Mary Clark
I worked with Mary in purchasing my first home as a single mother. I really had no idea how to go about buying a home, so was very glad to know that Mary was watching out for me. I've known Mary for several years, and have absolute confidence in her integrity and professionalism, so choosing a realtor was simple. What I didn't understand was the amount of time and effort that went into finding and buying the perfect home. I had quite a long 'wish list', yet was constrained by a modest budget, and Mary offered great insight into other variables that I wouldn't have thought of. In short, she did her best to make sure I ended up with a home that was just right for me, and she succeeded! I love my new home, and with Mary's help the experience was much less intimidating than I expected it to be.
