MARY LISTENED TO OUR CRITERIA AND WAS VERY HONEST IN HER FEEDBACK
Rodania & Rob F.
Mary was great to work with. Purchasing our first home in San Francisco was a very daunting task but with her experience, architectural knowledge and contacts in the city we were able to have our answers to all questions resolved quickly! Mary listened to our criteria and was very honest in her feedback and explaining what she thought would work for us or not- she was quick to suggest other properties to push our boundaries which was great as we were able to remain open-minded and consider other listings whilst learning about all our options in this very competitive city. One example that comes to mind is when we were looking at a home without a garage- Mary was very quick to call an engineer immediately so we were able to understand the costs and our budget for the home we were potentially buying. It was particularly useful to have her knowledge of structural work too as we were looking at places with potential for renovations and Mary was always in touch with us when we needed advice.
MARY IS A TRUE PROFESSIONAL!
Mary is a true professional when it comes to buying and selling a home in San Francisco. She is incredibly knowledgeable about neighborhoods and prices. She is a huge resource and has great contacts in areas such as staging, mortgages and inspections. Unlike some of our past agents, she is methodical and truly wants to put you in a home that is right for you. She pre-screens many homes and saves you the time of looking at properties that do not meet your specific criteria. In a word, she listens. When it comes to closing, she is completely on top of it and walks you through the inevitable “bumps” in the road. All in all she is by far the best agent I have ever worked with and highly recommend her.
MARY IS A GREAT REALTOR, ESPECIALLY FOR US AS FIRST TIME BUYERS.
Nick & Tori
Mary is a great realtor, especially for us as first time buyers. She really knows the market and the other realtors. This can come in handy when negotiating. Plus, she is trained as an architect, so she was able to help spot issues in houses that we never would have seen. She was dedicated to us buying a house and took us to see a ton of places on a tight timeline. This was a big purchase for us, and she was able to calm us down and get us the information we needed in order to be confident in our decision. We recommend Mary highly.
