Just purchased our fifth home with Mary. We had our offer prepared and submitted by Mary within two hours after the listing went live while we were driving to Tahoe. It was a difficult short sale that requires a lot of careful negotiation and communication with the seller, the seller's agent, the negotiator, the bank and other lien holders. Mary exercised a smart buying strategy that not only allowed us to beat the other 10+ offers while our offer was by no means the highest but also ultimately approved by the bank. At one point the bank declined our offer and we were ready to walk away. Mary never gave up and kept working with various parties involved in the transaction and eventually sealed the deal. It was just another unbelievably pleasant home buying experience with Mary, without whom there's no way we will win this home from the fierce competition and the tedious short sale process with this particular lien holder. I would recommend Mary to any homebuyers or investors who are looking for the perfect real estate agent.
