We worked with Mary when we bought our first home in San Francisco in 2013 based on a family referral to Parc Pacific Ventures.  While the buying process is chaotic at best, particularly if moving from another city, we had such a successful experience that we knew we wanted to work with Mary again when we decided to enter the market for a larger home.  Mary clearly listened to all of our needs/wants and found us homes to view, driving us to each opening for several weekends. Mary ultimately found us our 'forever home' after about 5 weeks of house-hunting and, once again, expertly navigated us through the buying process.  This time, we also had a home to sell and Mary simplified the process for us by taking care of everything from getting the house ready for sale to dealing with the buyers.  We felt we were in safe, professional hands the entire time.  Mary genuinely cares about her clients and is stellar at her job.  We can't recommend her enough!

“When we decided to sell our condo we knew that we would not be in the area to involve ourselves with the sale, so we wanted someone who really knew our building. It was also important to us to have someone who was responsive and was diligent about maintaining good communication. At our first meeting, Mary clearly demonstrated that she was very knowledgeable about Parc Telegraph and had a lot of experienced working with everyone in the complex.  We were confident that we could leave everything to Mary. When it came time to talk about pricing, she was willing to listen to our goals and had a sound strategy for maximizing our exposure to the market. As we were preparing our condo to go on the market, she went the extra mile to coordinate and supervise all the contractors that were hired to make our unit look spectacular. With Mary's help and her expertise in market timing we sold our unit at a price that was well over what we expected.

“I first met Mary as a referral from a friend who engaged her services for a rental.  She rented out my condo and advised me on everything I needed to do to make the condo attractive to a potential tenant.  She listed my condo and found me a well qualified tenant who is still renting my condo two years later.  He has been a dream tenant who pays on time and is low maintenance.  When it was time to look for a house, I naturally contacted Mary.  She navigated my husband and I through a very tough market and always remained positive.  She has a tremendous amount of patience and always gave her honest opinion on pros and cons on each house and whether she thought the house was in our budget.  We were able to get our second offer accepted even in a sellers market based on Mary's advice.  I would definitely recommend Mary for both rentals and purchasing real estate.”

“I first met Mary at my gym. As we became friends, I knew that she was a "sweetheart"!!!! When I found out that she was a real estate agent, I realized that she was the one to sell my mom's condo. She was very professional and supplied us with all the support and help we needed. From staging, to painting, to plumbing and all the other various jobs we needed, Mary took care of EVERYTHING. SHE WAS SUPERB!!!!! I highly recommend her to anyone. Thanks again for all your hard work.”

"Mary is a fantastic realtor. We stumbled upon her while looking to buy our first home and could not be happier. She is very patient, understanding and extremely knowledgeable of the buying process and market. She was able to ease all of our concerns, work with our busy schedules and find us the perfect home to meet our needs and budget. We would definitely work with Mary again and recommend her to anyone thinking of buying a new home as she always had our best interest in mind.  Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!”

“Mary came referred to me by a mutual friend and proved to be an awesome agent. She and I spent many months looking at property in the city. Mary worked diligently and eventually we found exactly what I was looking for in a fabulous part of the city. I really appreciated her knowledge, honesty and attention to detail. You can trust Mary to put your needs first and get the job done.”

“Mary was very professional, detail oriented, and efficient. I used her services to rent out my condo and she did a fantastic job. Within a very short time, she found me a wonderful tenant. I am totally happy with the result. Not only because she found me a tenant, I really appreciate her honesty. She will do her utmost to negotiate for the best interests of the landlord and the tenant. I will definitely use Mary as my future agent. I highly recommend her to anyone who needs a professional and honest real estate agent.”
