Mary Anthony represented my husband and I in both buying and selling multiple homes in northern Virginia with the first back in 2003 and the last in 2017. She helped us buy homes we loved. She added some of her decor to our homes to help them look better when selling. She was always willing to help us in our needs both buying and selling homes. When problems arose with the house we were selling she helped fix everything and helped us get a good price.
As a buyer’s agent, Mary helped us search for the home that suited our needs. She did a great job answering our questions and showing us the homes we requested. She met with us on our schedule and helped point out things that were important to us (storage, layout of the home, lighting, etc.). We eventually found the perfect house for us. We never felt pressured and felt that Mary was a trusted friend trying to help us find what we wanted.
When selling our home Mary added some of her own things to make them appealing. She provided simple yet effective artwork for decorations and even provided some other decor items to help the home look better. We loved that she took the initiative to make our houses look the best they possibly could.
I never felt obligated to use Mary’s services, and used another realtor (who was a family friend) a couple times. But through those experiences, I came to appreciate her expertise even more and we were very grateful we chose to use Mary to sell our last home. Although we’ve moved out of the area, if I were to buy or sell another property in VA, Mary would be our go-to realtor.
When selling our last home, we lived out of state and Mary went beyond the call of duty to take care of our home and ensure it was well marketed and able to sell. We had a contract on our home but during the home inspection they found some damage from the recent storm and a few other things that needed taken care of. We took the house off the market while we made the repairs. We did what we could to find contractors, but Mary stepped in when there were things we just couldn’t do. She was a life saver. She often met let the contractors into the house and arranged for them to give us the estimate. She also suggested contractors that she had used and trusted. Mary’s knowledge of reasonably priced contractors and her help in getting bids saved us thousands as we repaired our home. After the repairs, the house sold quickly and at a price we were happy with. Despite the inherent stress from trying to sell a home from afar, Mary made the situation bearable and helped us get through it.
I would highly recommend Mary Anthony. I trust her as an advisor and representative. She was an exemplary professional. She went above and beyond. She seems more than our realtor. She feels like a friend
