It didn't take long for us to realize how dependable, trustworthy, and knowledgeable Mary is. We found that there was no comparison between her and other real estate agents and companies we tried to work with. Mary is truly next-level when it comes to the real estate industry. She is a wealth of knowledge, took time to get to know us and really internalize what our specific needs were in the type of home and property we were looking for. She knew when to hold our hand and walk us through something, and when to give us the space and time to figure things out on our own. We met other agents who felt like they didn't really listen to us or get to know us, who weren't invested in the technical and emotional process of acquiring a new home, and who were afraid to say "I don't know" if they didn't know the answer to something. Instead, they'd just start talking to fill up the space, taking us for fools. It's not often Mary doesn't know something, but if she doesn't, she has the confidence to say "I don't know," and then she'll go do tons of research and call you right back with all the answers you were looking for. Mary is kind, generous with her time, and very easy to talk to, but also quite tough when she needs to be to step in to make things happen. "I can be a bulldog if I need to be" I believe were her exact words. Having Mary Cohen as our real estate agent was a true blessing, and thanks to her, we have found our dream home and dream property.

Mary Cohn is the ultimate professional. She was helpful at every step in the process of selling our home and showing us new potential homes. During the inevitable stressful times, she offered excellent advice and guidance that was always right on target. She was always pleasant and an absolute pleasure to work with. We could not recommend her more highly if a real estate professional is needed to sell your home or business.

Mary has been wonderful. She showed us a wide range of properties to help us narrow down what we were looking for, showed us the town, responded immediately to all our queries, and now is facilitating many details for us with regard to researching the property we've made an offer on, since we are not currently in the area.
We loved working with Mary and I would recommend her to anyone. She knows the area very, very well and was supremely professional and at the same time supportive and generous. She made it clear that as our buyer's agent, she was in it for the long haul and was fully committed to helping us find our perfect house. Mary put us in touch with local contractors who we ended up using extensively on our house, and we were very pleased with them. She was always immediately responsive as the close progressed, and since we didn't live in the area at the time, she made many extra trips to the house on our behalf to check on the status of things on-site, pre-close. She is deeply committed to the community of Greenfield and it was a pleasure to work so closely with someone who loves the town the way she does. She provided us with a great deal of useful advice and guidance.

Mary worked with us for 2 long years to find a perfect home for our family. She took the time to answer our questions, research homes for our family in multiple areas and she previewed and presented great ideas as we searched for a home clear across the US from California. We love Mary and we can say that without her, we would not have found our perfect home. Her knowledge and understanding of the market as well as her humanity and professionalism are, without a doubt, unparalleled in The Valley.

I couldn't have worked with anyone more professional and friendly. Mary was very receptive to my needs and went beyond the expected services. Thank you Mary for making the sale of my house so pain-free and in fact, pleasant!
Mary has excellent local knowledge and her client's interest at heart. She is smart, kind, and well connected. She knows the local market inside and out, and can steer clients towards the right purchase in terms of neighborhood and location. She knows if a home is well priced. She had a great deal of integrity and is honest and forthright in her opinions and recommendations. We highly recommend her!
In 2007, my wife and I found Mary while we were looking at a house. Our realtor couldn't make it the day we could, so I called Mary and asked if she could show us the house. It didn't turn out to be what we were looking for, but Mary showed us two other houses that day. My wife and I decided that Mary was the "one" and we offered that she list our house.
For the next three years, Mary stood by our side throught a new septic system, multiple market crashes, job losses due to economic conditions and the general life rollercoasters. We closed on our new house and sold our old house in June 2010.
We would have never been able to close this deal without Mary Cohn. She has changed our lives forever and we won't forget what she has done for us. In our eyes, there isn't a realtor in the county who cares more or goes farther to help families like ours, than Mary Cohn.
There aren't a lot of people in this world that care as much as Mary does. She's not in it for the money. She's not in it because it's a hobby. She's in it because she genuinely cares about good people and has a vested interest in Franlin County.
We would recommend Mary Cohn to anyone who is real.
