I was a first-time home buyer who couldn’t make up my mind,and Mary showed me a slew of places over the course of about three months until I found one I wanted to buy. She had great local knowledge and helped me avoid one particularly bad decision but was not pushy. She made helpful observations. When we were looking at properties, she worked around my schedule and was willing to meet late on a few occasion to help keep the paperwork moving. She was prompt in returning calls and easy to work with. I am not sure how appealing or unappealing my offer was to the seller given the current real estate climate, but I was happy with the price Mary negotiated for me. I spoke with the lawyer she recommended, and he was very helpful. I used the firm for the closing. Overall the experience was smooth and trouble free which I was pleasantly surprised about, considering I had never been through the process before.
