    Sold a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $325K in Bartlett, IL.

    Mary was nothing short of amazing. Many folks negotiate by playing hardball but Mary negotiates by understanding what everyone wants to make them happy. She successfully nativated a very difficult sale and then helped me win a multiple bid situation on my purchase. Both times, a lesser agent could have crumbled. Why would anyone trust the sale or purchase of their home with an unknown?

    On top of all of this, Mary was efficient, available and an absolute pleasure to do business with, As successful as she is, she knows everybody which really made the process go very smoothly. She has a customer for life!

    Sold a Single Family home in 2012 in Bartlett, IL.

    We moved into our home in 1989. We loved our home. I met Mary at a neighborhood party that same year. I liked her and tucked her name away, thinking she would be good if we ever sold our home. Years passed and I would see her name a lot on the ReMax signs thru out the town. We loved our home and had no intention of selling. We also had another home in another town and used another realty to sell it. When it came time to sell our Bartlett home, we took his recommendation with this same realty group. It was on the market for a year and a half and the market continued to decline. We switched to Mary McFarland. We listed it with her in January 1, 2012. We got a lot more interest/traffic/showings. We got a bid by the end of February or beginning of March and we closed the house on April 2, 2012. Mary is a true professional. She knows her market, she knows how to move a house. We did not lower the price, in fact we raised it slightly. She is serious about selling your house, so be ready to move quickly. She will advise you what you need to do so that you will sell it. Mary is knowledgeable and skillled with getting your house visible, getting you traffic, and she is working for you. She wants to sell the house and her soloution is not necessarily to "lower" your pricing as so many realtors advise. I also watched 2 other homes on our same block (that were listed with her) sell within 6 months time. There were several other homes in our same neighborhood listed with her and they have all moved quickly. I sincerely would advise you to seek Mary out if you are selling your home.  More Less

    Bought a Condo home in 1998 for approximately $150K in Schaumburg, IL.

    Mary is perceptive, a good listener and very professional. She understood exactly what I was looking for in a house to call it a home. She didn't waste our time showing us properties we wouldn't be interested in. We bought our first home with her. We've stayed in touch and cultivated a friendship. She's a wonderful person, I cherish our friendship. would recommend her to everyone looking to buy or sell a home. Will definitely buy our next house with her.  More Less
