Client testimonials & reviews

Mary Kay was the reason our sale went through.
"She negotiated with a first time buyer who had normal apprehensions exacerbated by the 100 year flood on the day of inspection. She is always calm and professional yet has a delightful sense of humor. She is very practical about what needs to be done to improve a listing but gentle in her approach to you. She also uses innovative ways to market the property. Her knowledge of comparable properties is complete and she seems to understand the flow of the market. I have complete confidence in her abilities as a broker and would recommend her with no hesitations."

-- Louisa Stiles Levy

The consummate professional...
"Mary Kay is the consummate professional: thoroughly informed, diligent, exacting and hard-working, as well as positive and engaging."

--Darrel Dvorak

She's a pleasure to work with.
"Mary Kay is the walking definition of why you need a highly skilled real estate broker. She gets into the nitty gritty of a home sale transaction: from networking with local agents and builders to researching a properties history to finding the right comparable homes. She will do the work that needs to be done to get the home you want at the price you want. Mary Kay will negotiate well, listen and learn what's important, and make sure her clients priorities are always driving the transaction. She's a pleasure to work with."
