Listed, but didn't sell my Single Family home in 2014 in Alki, Seattle, WA.
Working with Mary Hollister to sell our home felt like having an old friend drop by to give some great advice, assist in signing a few forms, and then being handed a big fat check. She answered all questions quickly and thoroughly, and was really good at all the details we never would have thought of. When you combine that level of service with the fact that she didn't charge for staging or taking beautiful photo's of our home (others quoted $800-$2000) the decision to work with her made itself. I can't recommend her highly enough. Truly thank you for everything Mary!

Mary was both knowledgeable and personable. She demonstrated diligence in promoting our home on the market, as well as in assisting with some scheduling challenges related to marketing needs. She could answer our questions, make recommendations, and be responsive to our occasional preferences. She is a great asset to have on your team (selling or buying).
Mary is a great real estate broker, but also a great person. As first time home buyers, Mary was very patient with all of our questions and very knowledgeable about the local market. She is honest and very straight forward. She's not about to let you walk into a good or bad deal without telling you outright. Mary is super speedy when it comes to answering e-mails and getting answers or getting us a showing of a property. Mary asks the questions that we didn't even know to ask. She's charming and such a pleasure to work with We can't say enough positive things about Mary. She stayed true to her word and helped us find and buy our perfect first home! Thank you Mary!!

Mary is a very energetic individual. She is efficient and works hard to cover all of the details, small and large, required to sell a home. Mary responds quickly to calls/emails. She knows all of the little tricks of marketing a home. We found her to be very informative regarding the market and trends for the area - which she was right on in regards to our home. We found Mary to go above and beyond our expectations to sell our home....and she did it!

We couldn't have asked for a better realtor. Mary was helpful and attentive every step of the way. Buying a house can be tough at times but Mary always kept a positive outlook and never gave up! She wasn't pushy, but rather had our best interest at heart. She constantly sent us new listings and made herself readily available to check out these listings. We finally found our home, unfortunately it was priced well above our price range. Mary negotiated with the sellers and got the price down to a number we could afford! We couldn't be happier in our new home! I recommend Mary to all of my friends and family and will most certainly work with her again in the future.
BOTTOM LINE UP FRONT: Mary Hollister is the only name you need to know in Seattle realty if you are in the market for a house AND an agent you can trust IMPLICITLY.
I happened across Mary by chance, based on a random Zillow recommendation for a property I was interested in. It was the best gamble I have ever made! From day one, Mary was on the case: responsive, knowledgeable, and above all - PATIENT (especially with a first-time home-buyer, such as myself). She never let me down once, and her thoroughness is remarkable. Throughout the entire process, from looking for a place to closing on my new home, Mary was right there with me, providing expert advice and a sound understanding of the local market and area. She knows the ins-and-outs of the process, and is on YOUR team, 100% of the time!
To boot, Mary is probably the most friendly and personable stranger I have never met (literally - the entire process was conducted over the phone and via email, since I was deployed the whole time). Again, I must reiterate: MARY NEVER LET ME DOWN ONCE!!!

Mary was an absolute pleasure to work with! As first time home-buyers she was patient in walking us through the process step-by-step. She was also more than accomodating to us and our middle of the night emails and early morning phone calls. When we would drive by a house and just "have to see it right away" she was THE BEST at making it work. Buying your first house is more stressful (and heartbreaking) than we had inticipated in this crazy housing market. Having Mary as our realitor felt like having a knowing and understanding friend riding the roller coster with us and guiding us.

Mary showed great concern for helping us purchase our home. She kept us informed of the steps for purchasing from the agreement to purchase through obtaining financing and closing. She explained the legal details pretty well involving title insurance, home inspection, appraisal and the disclosure statements.
I would recommend Mary for full agency representation
