Ratings & Reviews

I just happened to pick Mary by just looking through all the ReMax realtors in my area. I made a great choice. She took the time to find out about me and what I wanted. She was there when I needed her and she kept informed of both the good and the bad. The advice she gave on selling my house was spot on. I would recommend her in a heartbeat. She is great at what she does and knows what she is doing.

Sold a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $200K in Bartlett, IL.

When we put our house up for sale, Mary went to work right away. In three days, we had people looking at the house daily. I feel sorry for her family because she spends so much time with her clients but it's well worth it. Mary sold my house in Bartlett in 2013. I'll be looking for a house in St. Charles and Mary is the only realtor that I'll be contacting. Mary McFarland is the best. Wes Ciupka

Bought a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $350K in Bartlett, IL.

Mary was indispensible in helping me choose my first home! I looked online for over a year at homes and finally took the plunge of contacting a realtor. I was blessed to have Mary become involved in my search. My wife and I have been absolutely thrilled with our home, and our neighborhood since moving in. She seemed to sense right from the beginning what area and type of home would be perfect for us! Mary was careful to gather information from us to help find the best fit, and even steered us away from homes that wouldn't have suited our needs. I would highly recommend Mary to anyone looking to purchase a home in the Chicago land area! Thomas Safford

Found a tenant for a home in Naperville, IL 60563.

Mary McFarland helped us rent a condo. She was very professional and clearly knowledgeable about the real estate market. She showed us comparisons of similar properties that had already been rented or which were available for rental which helped enormously in setting the rental price. She kept in frequent touch to give us updates, found potential renters and got credit ratings so that we could make an informed decision.

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 for approximately $350K 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.

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.

The problem is I never want you to move unless you promise to stay in Illinois.

Sold a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $100K in Northlake, IL.

Mary was always professional and responded promptly to any problems that arose during the purchase of my new house and the sale of my old one. I could not have asked for more from a real estate agent.

Listed, but didn't sell my Single Family home in 2011 in Bartlett, IL.

When my mother passed away and we had to sell her home, we asked our lawyer who he might recommend as a realtor. Neither I or my brother had lived in Bartlett for years, so Mary was suggested to us. I called Mary and we promptly scheduled a visit with her. To my surprise and joy, she was everything we were told she was. I felt very comfortable and at ease with Mary. It was like talking to member of the family. She was very paitent andknowIedgeable about the town, its history, and what was currently going on around town. I was very happy to have her "on my side" and talking to me as an equal. After having talked to Mary and other realtors, it became an easy decision for me to make. My trust and faith in Mary is well earned by her and her offfice partners. We haven't sold the home yet, but that is difficult for anyone now. our house has only been listed 3 weeks.
