We used several agents in the past few years and we only chose the ones that had outstanding records. Mary Beth is the best among them for two reasons. First, she is creative. While many agents are rather passive in buying and selling, Mary Beth always went the extra mile and tried to think about alternatives (e.g., contacting all the agents that sold similar homes; proposing rental with option of purchase, etc.). Second, she set the bar of ethics for the murky profession. While manipulation is not uncommon in real estate industry, Mary Beth's openness and honesty won our full trust. When clients' interests conflict with her own, she can put clients' interest first, which is easier said than done. In our case, we put our house on the market for sale at a bad timing (our neighbor sold a similar home at a very low price as a result of her health problems). We got a low-ball offer but would have to lose money if we took it. Once we decided to rent, Mary Beth worked as hard as before and eventually got us a good tenant, even though the rental commission was only 10% of her sales commission. Overall, Mary Beth is brilliant, hard-working, and responsible. It was a great pleasure working with her.
