Great real estate agent who helped us deal with a very challenging seller/agent. We had great confidence in her advice which we found to be very honest. She didn't try push us to make a deal and gave us time to consider things carefully. Would definitely recommend her to friends/family.
 
Mary was invaluable in "staying on top" of everything and we had put our home on the market at probably one of the worst times ...coupled with ...the largest single snow storm in Pittsburgh History...which hit the week prior to finding our ultimate buyer. Probably the most valuable advice was her recommending that we NOT ACCEPT the 1st offer which was in line with our target price ( I know...that is NOT what most agents would recommend) ... BUT there was an FHA Mortgage Contingency which could have taken us out of the market at the exact same time our ultimate buyers showed up at one of Mary's many Open Houses. I believe, had we ignored her advice we had a very high risk of being "left" on the market too long & thus missing the opportunity of a conventional mortgage buyer with a large down payment & a very efficient closing process. Expertise & experience is a big key in a tough real estate market & Mary delivers both.... Mary is a true professional & a very nice & trustworthy person who is easy to work with.
 
Mary, Helped me locate and purchase my first home in Pittsburgh, in the Mt. Lebo area. She was very patient and thoughtful as I was a first time home buyer. She provided valueable insight to ensure I would choose the right home to best suite my needs as a single home owner. My closing went perfect! When my company relocated me to Florida, a year and a half later, I called Mary again and she sold my home in less then 3 months in the middle of one of the worst Pittsburgh winters and the bad economy! I sincerely recommend Mary to anyone interested in searching for their dream home. Mary's knowledge of the area and the process is exceptional.
 
 
This was not our first experience with a real estate agent, but it was by far the best! Mary is wonderful. She is knowledgeable, personable, and most importantly, she really listens to people. Mary's response to any questions we had was immediate, and she often anticipated things we had not yet thought of.
 
Mary was very helpful in being patient with us until we found our perfect home. We would highly recommend using her.
 
Mary was recommended to me by a co-worker who also had an excellent experience with her. I was very happy and thankful for her help in purchasing my first home. Mary was very personnable, knowledgable, and went above and beyond what I think most real estate agents would do for a client. I would definitely recommend her to anyone looking for a 5 star agent!
 
I had the pleasure of working with Mary on the both the purcahse and and sale of my home in Mt Lebanon, PA. Mary was always very responsive to my needs and extremely helpful in providing accurate market analysis for both the purchase and sales of my home. Mary will work hard to get the job done for you, whether it's buying or selling of your home.
