★★★★★
"MaryAnn listed and sold our home and also represented us in buying our next home. In both cases, she was incredibly thorough in both her knowledge of the market and the unique aspects of both transactions. Both properties needed a good deal of research as each had unusual aspects (i.e., several lots, a land trust easement). Her patience and negotiating skills were outstanding. Her in-depth knowledge of the local regulations and town hall practices was a huge help in presenting the property that was sold. When rough spots developed she handled them in a balanced way with good common sense. I would highly recommend her services." - Barbara

★★★★★
"MaryAnn is a true professional. She brings the personal attention to her every detail, offering great advice, creative marketing, detailed information, social media and complete loyalty to her clients. Always available to her clients, she helps the process of Real Estate, buying or selling, to be a fun and easy experience. It's a great pleasure to work side by side with her." - Barry

★★★★★
"MaryAnn is amazing to work with - she went above and beyond at every step in the process; taking the time to understand exactly what we were looking for, striking the perfect balance between giving us her advice and letting us make decisions, ushering us through the offer and closing process, and being the first and most welcoming neighbor upon our arrival to town. I highly recommend MaryAnn - simply the best!!" - Jessica

★★★★★
"I've purchased 2 homes in the past, and as soon as I met MaryAnn I could tell that she was in a different league from any of my prior real estate agents. MaryAnn's professionalism, knowledge base, and dedication far exceeded my expectations. She not only helped us find the perfect home, she also helped us settle into our new neighborhood by providing excellent advice, recommendations and referrals. Other agents simply pale in comparison to the MaryAnn. Do NOT buy a home in Chappaqua without her!" - Whitney

★★★★★
"MaryAnn is a dedicated, trustworthy realtor that I had the privilege of working with and sharing ideas. I must say she is a team player at every level, yet very capable of handling any situation on her own. I would highly recommend her to any clients if they are looking for a real estate sales professional with integrity who will get the job done with ease and to your satisfaction!" - Valerie

★★★★★
"MaryAnn was incredible to work with and we are thankful for her guidance through our journey to buy our first home in the suburbs. Like many, we were seeking to leave the city and find a home during the pandemic but had specific criteria for a home in an extremely competitive market. MaryAnn was insightful and immediately helped us narrow our focus. She is a great listener and always took our feedback after each showing. She was patient with us and not overly eager to close a deal that was not the right fit for us as she was determined to find the best home for our family. MaryAnn is experienced, knowledgeable, creative and responsive. We value her honesty and patience and we always knew she had our best interests at heart. Thank you MaryAnn for guiding us to find and close on our dream home! We could not have done it without your patience, hard work and professionalism. " - JChang

★★★★★
"I had the pleasure of working with MaryAnn over the past few months on my home search. It was a wonderful experience as she really listened to what I was looking for, was extremely responsive and worked with me and my schedule to set up showings or make sure I was taken care of if she herself couldn't be there, to ensure I didn't miss out on any opportunities. HIGHLY recommend working MaryAnn! " - S.Adika

★★★★★
"I would recommend MaryAnn Bayer to anyone looking to sell their home. You’d be lucky to have her as your agent. She is so responsive. She is a great listener. And once she hears your needs and concerns she springs into action. She had my house sold in 6 months. Prior to working with MaryAnn my house had been sitting on the market for several months. After an initial walk through she recommended that we get rid of the tired furnishings and do virtual staging instead. She designed the most beautiful, contemporary virtual staging and when prospective buyers saw the pictures on line the house sold itself - in fact we had a bidding war. That was another area in which MaryAnn was indispensable to me - she is a shrewd negotiator and was very helpful in guiding me to the right buyer. Anyway, I look forward to working with MaryAnn again on future selling and buying prospects!" - T.Franks

★★★★★
"From our initial meeting, I sensed Mary Ann’s optimistic attitude and boundless energy. As our journey progressed, I experienced her professionalism. I saw her creativity as she staged my house and business savvy as she set a high sale price. Most importantly, I witnessed her generosity as she devoted time and energy towards contacting contractors and scheduling meetings. She was an important direct liaison to Town Hall. I would not have sold my home without her." - D.Crainer

★★★★★
"Mary Ann was a great help in staging, presenting, listing, and selling our house. Mary Ann proved why you need an experienced local broker. We were surprised at all the issues that had to be addressed during the selling process. Mary Ann knew who to contact in the building department, tax office, county assessor, etc. She took the lead in rectifying multiple issues. Her knowledge and experience were invaluable. At all stages of the process Mary Ann was professional and cheerful. She is a great asset and great to work with." - D.Curran

★★★★★
"I give Mary Ann 5 of 5 stars. She was great all around. She listened to my concerns over 2 years, modified what she wanted to do to take into account my wishes. She was patient with my hesitations. She was very competent in finally selling the house. She communicated with the buyer, who was extremely difficult by constantly adding more requirements about the house. Mary Ann kept sight of the goal to sell the house for the best price. I would recommend her to a seller or buyer." - M.Cayten

★★★★★
" While we ended up purchasing a home in another area, MaryAnn was a pleasure to work with, very knowledgeable, and showed us some unique homes that were on our shortlist. I'd recommend anyone searching in the Chappaqua area to reach out to her." - R.Azad

★★★★★
" Mary Ann exceeded all expectations. Her knowledge of the market, patience and enthusiasm are unparalleled, and, when we found the house for us, she kept everyone (selling agent, us, inspectors, attorneys) on point through offer to close, navigated obstacles, ensured we closed, and followed up after closing to see how we were doing. We really wanted to understand the market and looked at a lot of homes. Mary Ann assured us that it was ok since we were learning what we liked and did not like. When we started looking we were generally open to anything, but over time we narrowed our wish list. We did not even realize that she was helping us narrow or focus. The process was painless. All of the effort paid off when the house we ultimately purchased came on the market. Mary Ann saw the house and knew we would like it. We had a viewing before the home had an open house. We made an offer that day." - M.Boston

★★★★★
" Mary Ann guided us through a long, fraught process with expertise, insight and compassion. She often went above and beyond to ensure that the house was well-presented to as many buyers as possible, and assisted in ways we didn't know required assistance. If we had it to do over again, we would call her!" - A.Spilka

★★★★★
"Working with Mary Ann was a great experience from start to finish. She gave us expert advice on when to put our house on the market and how best to price it. She worked closely with us on staging the house to appeal to prospective buyers, helping us to highlight the house’s strengths and adding some delightful touches to the decor. She helped us to find reliable local contractors to do any necessary work." -L.Baker

★★★★★
"We feel so fortunate to have had Mary Ann Bayer as our real estate agent. Mary Ann showed us countless properties in all kinds of weather over many months. Through it all, she was patient, informative, trustworthy, dependable, kind, and helpful. She got to know us personally and our needs for our space and could read our reactions and tell us what would be interesting even before we set foot in it. She would do the research and legwork to provide information to help us even if it meant passing on a place and spending even more time looking. We never felt like she was trying to fit us into a property, but would consider our quirky needs and diligently work to find matches. We could not have asked for a better agent with our home search, nor a better person to know when moving into a new community. We have found our home and are busy now making it our own. We have space for music, space for woodworking, places for crafts and cooking and reading and sports and all the needs our family had. We have our ‘stage’ for all the memories to come. We have this in no small part because of her. We recommend Mary Ann Bayer as a real estate agent enthusiastically and without reservation. You would be lucky to have her as your agent. " -J.Gunnar

★★★★★
"Mary Ann Bayer worked very hard for us to help sell our home in a tough market!! She was always very ethical with dealing with an extremely difficult buyer and extremely patient as well as very kind! Not a common trait found in real estate dealings . We cannot say enough good things about her! Warrants an absolutely 6+Star rating in our books!" -M.Sett

★★★★★
" The house sold quickly. Mary Ann ran the open houses and guided us in negotiating the offers we received. She was generous with her time and energy throughout the entire process. She really went above and beyond. Mary Ann was extremely responsive throughout our search and buying process. She showed us properties that met our criteria, at times that were convenient to us. During a difficult contract negotiation and closing process (on account of sellers), she listened to our frustrations and helped us remain level headed with our eye on the prize. She went above and beyond on several occasions liaising with the town on our behalf. Mary Ann continues to be a local resource for us as we settle into our new home. She is a great agent to work with." -RS

★★★★★
"Mary Ann was a pleasure to work with. A true professional who knows the market. She was always available to show listings and answer our questions quickly. Her follow up is outstanding. She handled the negotiating/closing process extremely well, keeping us in the loop from start to finish. We could not have asked for a better agent!" -M.Marcon,

★★★★★
"Mary Ann was creative, caring, professional, and SUCCESSFUL. Thanks to her outstanding work, selling our home was easy, efficient, and fast at the price we wanted. A lovely family has moved in, and we have happily moved on. " -J.Romeo,

★★★★★
"An experienced, well-connected, kind, honest agent. Could not have asked for anyone better. We had a difficult time of relocating ourselves from another state and could not have done this successfully with out Mary Ann's assistance. She went above and beyond for us and unlike other agents we have worked with Mary Ann took the time to understand what we were looking for and make our viewings worthwhile. She is very tech savvy so this helped a lot in making the real estate search efficient." -K.Woodward

★★★★★
"Mary Ann is an outstanding Real Estate Professional. It is not easy to change homes and Chappaqua can be a tricky market to navigate. Mary Ann really puts you at ease and never puts any pressure on you and gives all the information and guides you without any pressure. She made the process of buying our home a very pleasant one. I strongly recommend her to anyone looking to buy a home in Chappaqua and its surroundings." -R.Puri

★★★★★
"Mary Ann was perfect for us and as indicated above was honest, responsive to our questions and concerns, had excellent knowledge of local market conditions, and knew all aspects of the process quite well. With regard to negotiation, our initial reaction to the first offer was to reject it out of hand. She suggested an alternative - to lower the asking price just a bit. Little by little the buyers and we came to what we all believed was a fair compromise. We're now set up in our home in the Berkshires, happy to have concluded the deal and happy to have provided another family the opportunity to live in the house which served us so well through the years." -DF
