I selected Mary Ann to sell my house because she was completely prepared with a marketing plan, a complete analysis of my market and my home's relative value. She also had an excellent track record of sales. She had excellent suggestions for getting the house ready for market (painting cabinets, staging, and a bit of landscaping) and she arranged to get those jobs done very quickly by contractors she knew to be good. I was extremely pleased with her open house plan and it worked out just as she expected it would. We had multiple offers within a week on the market. That's superb marketing and orchestration! I highly recommend Mary Ann Wallace.

Mary Ann is a fabulous agent. My family gives her our highest recommendation for the following reasons --
1. She knows the market inside and out. From our very first conversation through the final negotiation with the buyers of our house, she knew what we needed to do to maximize the value from our home given the area we live in. From suggestions on improvements to the kitchen and the yard, to staging to creating energy around the open house - Mary Ann knew how to make our house stand out in a very competitive market.
2. She is on top of everything and made the process so easy. We have busy lives with work, travel and two small kids, and Mary Ann's organization of everything that goes into the sales process was so super helpful. She kept us on point and on schedule the entire time.
3. Mary Ann is a lovely person and a joy to work with. She brought her positive energy and joy to the job, resulting in a sales process that was not only efficient, easy and rewarding but fun too.

Mary Ann is the best! She knows the market and the industry extremely well and will fight for her clients. We had a mortgage broker that was very difficult to work with and she kept on him to make sure he delivered. She is very high-touch: she presents each offer in person, is very responsive to questions and checks in regularly to make sure everything is on track. She even gave us recommendations for making repairs on the home once we purchased and had a lovely welcome basket waiting for us in our new home when we took possession.

I have had 4 sell/buy transactions with Mary Ann. She came to us via recommendation. I am so happy we were directed to her. Mary Ann helped us find 2 homes of our dreams and sell 2 homes. She is personable, responsive, dedicated, hard working, knowledgeable, and tough (when she needs to be during negotiations). Buying and selling homes can be very stressful. Mary Ann helped make the experiences pleasant. She really understood what we were looking for and helped to screen out looking at houses that were not worth our time. She knew we would love the houses before we did. In addition, she has helped us with referrals for painters, handymen, restaurants...you name it. We consider Mary Ann a life long friend now and would utilize her services again and again.

Thank you Mayita! Words like yours is why I love my career so much! I hope to be seeing you soon...I've got something in the works...
Mary Ann Wallace is a fantastic real estate agent. My partner and I met Mary Ann at one of her open houses and we immediately connected. Due to her connections and knowledge of the Bay area, we found the perfect house. Mary Ann guided us through the house purchasing process with ease, continually advised us of our options, and allowed us to make decisions without any pressure. Thanks to her strategy and approach, we had a signed agreement within two days. Due to an aggressive close schedule, Mary Ann amazed us with her project management and supervised all of our inspections and coordinated with our loan officer and title company to ensure a smooth closing. She took the stress out of the entire process! As we were new to the area, Mary Ann also provided us with a slew of information for the area and service contacts (movers, cleaning services, lawn care, etc.). As a result, we bought, closed, and moved into our new home all within three weeks. We are very grateful that we had Mary Ann as our agent and definitely plan to use her on our next home purchase. Thank you Mary Ann!! If you're looking for an agent, don't look any further - Mary Ann's the one.

Thank you Jason-what a fun, whirl wind time we had together. I loved getting things done like this, it was so productive and satisfying to work for you both and I look forward to a continued friendship!

Working with Mary Ann has been a blessing. She helped my husband find the perfect condo in 2010, then sold it for us (within 4 days) this summer, helped find our dream house not only a few months ago, and to top things off sold my condo (within 4 days) as well.
Not only does she have impeccable knowledge of each neighborhood in the Bay Area but she also understands the uniqueness of each client's must have list. She was able to guide us through the highly stressful process of selling and buying a home with a calm hand. She never pressured us to buy, always reminded us to think of the overall investment and to ensure that we are happy with our choices.
And what can I say - we are THRILLED with our home and all transactions Mary Ann has done for us over the years.
If you are looking to buy or sell, give Mary Ann a call and experience for yourself why she continuously gets awarded Realtor's top 1% in Silicon Valley.

I have had the privilege to work with over 250 realtors in my career as a Home Loan officer. Let me tell you that Realtors are not created equal. You can tell when a professional only shows up for the money and this is not the case when it comes to Mary Ann Wallace. She will guide you from A-Z and has a wealth of knowledge. Do yourself a favor and hire Mary Ann Wallace to represent you as a Real Estate Agent.

Thank you Richard-you are awesome to work with as well and I look forward to working on more smooth transactions with you in the future!

We got to know about Mary Ann from friends and family members who had bought homes in the south bay area with her. We worked with Mary Ann for about a year to find our perfect home in Santa Clara.
During this whole process she was extremely patient with us and gave us complete freedom in making our own decisions while giving all the information needed about any property. She is very intelligent, professional, knows the area very well and always has a smile on her. She makes you feel very comfortable during the whole process. She is extremely accessible for her clients, very responsive and answers all your questions. Once she knows what a buyer is looking for, she will go the extra mile to find suitable properties and present offers.
We were very happy working with her and highly recommend her!

Thank you Jyoti and Amol-it has been a great pleasure working with you-I am so happy we found such an excellent house for you!
Words are not enough to describe the experience that Mary Ann provides to her clients. She was our Buying agent last year when we were looking for a house. We had aggressive targets and tight parameters to work with. Mary Ann was very understanding. She patiently explained the whole process and answered all questions. She is not pushy unlike many other realtors out there. This was the #1 turn-off for us as we shopped for an agent. We had several agents referred by others, but Mary Ann made us feel most comfortable. She is very patient through the whole process. She is very hard working.. and makes herself available almost all times during the day and evenings. During negotiations, we gave her aggressive parameters and she went to bat for us and in the end brought a lot of value to the table from the sellers. She is totally worth her fees and I whole hardheartedly recommend her.
