Ratings & Reviews

Mary sold our short sale home and provided the best negotiator possible. Our story was a nightmare from the time the bank sold our mortgage four months into the first accepted contract until closing today nearly two years later..no fault of hers ! Mary never gave up and was determined to get this house sold and to closing. I am happy I had Mary, she kept me going and the deal. Selling homes is important to her ..but people are more important. If it was anyone else they would have given up and moved on, not Mary she is a fighter and now a friend. She has outstanding contacts including negotiators and lenders and works hard to do what she can to make the transaction as smooth as possible. She went above and beyond the call of duty ! Thanks Mary , You are one of the good guys !

Bought a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $575K in Bayshore Beautiful, Tampa, FL.

I am very grateful to what Mary had done for us during the whole process of our dream home purchasing. Really want to say something about her, but have to start from the whole story.

I came to Tampa from a very big city in China in February. Our home locates at a very peaceful place. But I still prefer to live in the busy area after we moved there for a while. We decided to buy a new home close to downtown Tampa, and so talked to the realtor whom my husband worked with before. We kept looking for the houses and did not find any we like. Finally a very nice home popped up, and we liked it very much. We gave an offer we thought it was very good offer, but the owner picked up the higher offer. We were so sad and so lost that Friday when the realtor told us we did not have a chance. We did not mind to offer a higher reasonable price, we wanted to buy the house and move in there. But nobody told us what we should do.

I kept searching homes online that evening. There were some homes we were interested and I also sent to our realtors a couple days ago, but we did not hear from her. I saw Mary’s profile and told my husband I wanted to find someone probably who could help us. My husband did not say anything. I knew he felt sorry (guilty) if we walked away from our realtor. But I clicked the name “Mary Diaz”, sent out the request, and told my husband I wanted a try. We got Mary’s reply the next early morning (around 7:30am). I was very excited and told my husband Mary must be a very diligent person from this point. That is true. Mary helped us find our dream home four days later. Mary is such a great professional more than the person the internet reviews say.

(1)Mary is very good professional listener. She tried every way to understand what you want. Our first communications before our meeting in person were just a couple emails. But she already grabbed what we tried to look for. She gave us a very nice list (homes). During the first showing, she did not talk a lot, but she tried to see our reaction to the home (and so that she knows her customers’ expectation).

(2)Mary is very diligent (aggressive). “ The early bird gets worms.” That is Mary. We were the first showing to our dream home. Nice houses on market will be gone very fast. Mary seek the best timing for us.

(3)Mary is very insightful in the local market. Because of her knowledge, she is very confident giving you some advices (almost like strategy) how to gain the house(giving a competitive offer). Mary is an excellent analyst. Some realtors work like data collector. I felt this way with my first realtor.

(4)Mary is very organized. She talked with us on our schedule, and made everything in order for us. My husband said he had to arrange everything, even the home inspection, last year when he bought the house (I had not come yet.)

(5)Mary gave us the latest and comprehensive information about the houses. I sent the request through internet, and Mary replied to us very quickly, for instance, Mary told us the owner already had entertained offer and we could not visit the house. However the same quesiton i sent to our first realtor a couple days before I decided to contact mary,she answered back two days later than Mary that we still had chance to see the house but finally it proved the news she gave us was wrong and outdated. (6)Mary is in an excellent “social network”. The recommendations from her, such as home inspection, bank people, and even repair people, are also very professional and responsible too.

(7)Mary is very good at communication on the repair. The house is more than 80 years old house. A lot of repairs must be done before the closing. Mary helped us in charge of everything. We felt safe with her.

(8)Experienced? 18 years plus experience as banker. More than words can tell . Recently I found an article on how to find your realtor. I told my husband that Mary possess more than those on the newspaper…

Mary was very professional and knowledgeable throughout the buying and selling process. She understood my position and negotiated accordingly. I used her for both transactions and would certainly recommend her to anyone in the market.

Sold a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $125K in Riverbend, Tampa, FL.

Before I used Mary, I have had nothing but bad experiences selling homes. It is hard when you live in another state and need to sell a house. Mary worked hard to change my experience and out performed my expectations. According to neighbors she showed the house all the time and it sold within days. During the nerve-wrenching time between the sale and closing she kept me informed during every step. She answered the phone every time I called or called me back within minutes. Also, she used Barbara Mendoza from Majesty Title Services who went beyond what was required to keep a critical person like me happy. I recommend Mary without reservation and people like her give real estate agent a good name.

Showed home in 2011 in Gandy-Sun Bay South, Tampa, FL 33611.

Mary is an extraordinary realtor. I am very happy and satisfied with her professionalism and expertise in listening to my concerns and desires for what I wanted for a home. She was very patient with me and listened to what I was saying and wanted and kept negotiating with the seller to get the price I waanted in order for me to purchase the home. She is one of only a handful of agents whom I have dealt with that actually listened, was patient and negotiated day after day with the seller for my price. Always willing to work with me and always met me at the appropriate time when I wanted to see a home. I would highly recommend Mary for anyone who is looking to buy a home and I am sure she is just as good at selling a home. She works very hard for her clients. She actually was able to negotiate a price which would have saved me approximately 40k. Unfortunately, due to a change in my life, I was unable to purchase the home, but it was not a problem or fault of Marys. She has a wonderful attitude and is truly an excellent agent. I know that if I ever need an agent again, it will be Mary.

Sold a Single Family home in 2011 for approximately $125K in Old West Tampa, Tampa, FL.

Mary is an amazing agent and I am so fortunate that I found her to handle the sale of our home. Our home was listed with another realtor for 10 months without many showings and not contracts. After we decided that a change in realtor was necessary we found Mary. She came to our home and told us what needed to be done and what clutter needed to be cleared out. We had multiple showings and a contract on our house almost immediately. When our initial buyer backed out at the last minute Mary had another buyer for the house WITHIN ONE WEEK! She worked with us and the banks to get the sale of our home finalized and we are so fortunate for her hard work, dedication and expertise. I cannot say enough good things about Mary. If we are ever buying or selling a home we will use Mary. She is amazing to work with, compassionate and professional. A truly amazing person who will get the job done no matter how difficult, she salvaged the sale of our home, it was amazing what another realtor could not accomplish in 10 months Mary did in weeks!

Bought a Condo home in 2011 for approximately $100K in Brandon, FL.

My name is Marian Savu and I am 48 years old and I am from Toronto, Canada. I?ve decided to buy a property in Tampa Bay, Florida for my ?early retirement? and I start looking for a real estate agent with the focus on the RE/MAX agents based on the good experience I had with RE/MAX in Canada. The only one that was able to address all my questions I had related to this ?new experience? was Mary Diaz so I decided to fly to Tampa to meet her and start searching for a property that would fit my long term needs. I can say that I?ve meet and dealt with several good real estate agents during the last 15 years but Mary is ?special? ? she is the best professional I?ve meet so far ? one of her best qualities is being a good listener ? she does listen to your requests very carefully and finds the best solution for your need ? her response is fast and accurate. She will do above and beyond to coordinate with all the parties involved in, work on your best interest and finalize the transaction.

My first experience buying my first property in Florida with Mary was so pleasant that I?ve decided to buy the second property with her at one month interval - everything went according to the plan ? she is indeed an excellent real estate agent that does the job with high professionalism and integrity. It was a great pleasure working with Mary G Diaz I am recommending her without any reservation to anyone who?s thinking of purchasing a property in Florida.

Thank you, Marian Savu Senior Software Engineer ABAP/MM/FI SAP consultant
