“I’m sure no Broker would have accomplished what Mary did. After living in the same apartment for 20+ years, Mary knew she had a tough job ahead. She provided guidance on the look and feel we wanted to achieve and also helped me gauge timing, never trying to push the deal through. She tirelessly followed up on leads and never left me wondering about the status of our sale. Mary has an appreciation for small details and an eye to see possibilities. She’s a pleasure to work with and if I’m ever in the market for another apartment she will be my first call!” - Elizabeth M.
