We have bought and sold many homes but have never had an agent as helpful and willing as Mary.  She repeated went far above the "Call of Duty" to make sure everything went perfectly. She is very impressive.

 Mary was simply amazing to work with.  She is the ultimate professional, always handling everything that arose with grace and confidence.  She communicated daily with both my husband and I, often on separate texts/emails.  She was very timely in her communication and made both of us feel like we were her top priority.  Mary went above and beyond to make sure we both felt comfortable in our new home and took the time to answer or research all our questions.  I would highly recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell a home.
