Mary is energetic, thorough and penetrates the details. She was great to work with. She spent months with me as I narrowed down options. Everywhere from far afield to close at hand. She knows the area really well.

Showed home in 2013 in Nyack, NY.

Mary encouraged us to pay asking price the day we saw the house. She just wanted to make the sale happen and did a horrible job pretending to be working for us. BTW, the price of the house has been dropped twice since we backed out of the botched deal so Mary certainly wasn't trying to help us in a sellers market. She NOW says we were right in our original offer, but never said that at the beginning of the process. She also wasn't helpful regarding work the sellers promised to do for us. They were supposed to scrape and prime the entire house and not just the parts that had peeling paint. Well they scraped and primed the parts that had peeling paint. This is clearly visible from the photos, yet Mary said they had done what they were supposed to do.

Kevin, I understand you are disappointed. However, it usually always works out for the best, even in this case. In my experience, buyers find the houses they are meant to buy. Clearly, you were not meant to buy this house. Although you may disagree, I am very much a professional with plenty of other reviews to prove that, both here and off line. On another note, during the time we worked together, I did accomplish something most agents cannot take credit for. I negotiated a lot of money to be awarded to you to take care of issues found during the inspection. I also negotiated with the listing agent to have the peeling paint scraped and primed in the appropriate color PRIOR to contract signing so that you would not have that issue when applying for your loan. These are not such easy negotiations, in any market. Again, I truly hope you and your family find the home of your dreams where you will find happiness and success in years to come.

Bought a home in 2011 in Rockland Lake, Congers, NY 10920.

Came across Mary with a google search and that was my lucky day! Not only is she a real pro in the real estate game, but she really cares about her client and she gives all of herself and is very accessible. She never pushes you in a direction that you don't want to go. Not only did she help us find a rental when we got married, but she helped us with the purchase of our first home. We will never trust anyone else with our business. The best move you can make is hire her as your agent. You won't be sorry!

Showed home in 2012 in Nauraushaun, Pearl River, NY 10965.

Mary is a true professional in her work. She is dependable, responsible and always ready to find the answers to any questions or concerns that arise during a real estate search. Mary is very pleasant and easy to work with and I never hesitate to call her when I see a property of interest. Real estate can be a difficult business but Mary does a wonderful job of making it easier and smoother.

Helped me rent a home in Germonds, Nanuet, NY 10954.

Mary was a great help to me when I was moving to NY from CT. I did not know the area and Mary was very patient with me and my demands. Mary showed me locations that she felt would be a good fit for me & after many showings i found the perfect home. I will highly recommend Mary to anyone needing realtor assistance in the area.

Sincerely, Cheryl Dykstra

Bought a home in 2009 in Piermont, NY 10968.

I met Mary as a first time buyer with a vague notion of what I had wanted. I was a single physician pressed for time and new to the buying process with all the consternation and questions that come along with making a major long term investment. She earned my confidence early in the game. Mary helped me narrow down the many potential home possibilities into one that suited my lifestyle and tastes. She really listened to my concerns and addressed them appropriately. She was timely and available. She even called me from her dentist's office. Mary was able to provide me with key referrals to other realestate and financing professionals . If she didn't know the right answer to a problem she was honest and could find the solution. I remember I was out West on a ski vacation and she was able to negotiate and handle the details of my home purchase. I trusted her and the process went smoothly despite the inevitable unfortold twists and turns along the way. Mary, I am grateful for the dedication and service. I am happy to be in my new home and I was blessed to have had your help.

Listed, but didn't sell my home in 2011 in New Hampstead, Hillcrest, NY 10977.

In this market, you need to have the best relator there is. I found her. Her name is Mary Lovera.

Mary helped me figure out what I needed to do to make my home show beautifully, insightfully discussed the state of the real estate market, and walked me threw a market analysis to arrive at the right asking price. My home sold in 3 weeks. Yes, 3 weeks. To put this in perspective, there are numerous other apartments in my complex that are comparable to mine, have been on the market for 9 months, and still can't sell for a lower price. Over the last three years, the price I received is the highest of any sale in my complex. Not that is results.

On top of all that, Mary is a lovely, warm, easy to talk to person. You can't do better.

Dear Peter, Thanks so much for your great review of my work. I have appreciated working with you. Even though we are good friends, you selected me because you knew you could trust that I would be the best person to sell your home. Your testimonial confirms that. It's been great working with you. Good luck in NYC. With sincere, warm wishes....
