Mary Beth was great! I looked at several realtors and companies, but she was the most organized, had the philosophy that matched my expectations and sold me. Mary Beth helped me decorate, find places to buy appliances and furniture as well as held openings for other realtors. Plus, she had constant suggestions in what I could do and constant contact with me through email and text. Mary Beth completely met my expectations and I just referred her to a dear friend.

Mary Beth designed a beautiful flyer that my buyer said she took one look at and knew she would buy that house! She checked in with me frequently to keep me updated. She also dropped off paperwork at my office when I couldn’t get away. Great attitude and organization. She appeared eager to sell my house and knowledgeable about townhome sales in particular. I feel like I “lucked” into working with Mary Beth!
