Ratings & Reviews

I purchased my first home last november from Mara. She was excellent! She made the whole process not so scary to a first-time home buyer. I recommend her to everyone I know. She is friendly, courteous, professional, and will go out of her way to meet your expectations. She previewed several homes for me when I was not able to go take and look, and she really listens to what you want. Mara has also been in this area for quite some time and really knows the surrounding areas.

Bought a home in 2011.

Mara, was great! Professional and helpful!! As first time buyers we were nervous and not very knowledgeable about Real Estate. She was always available to answer questions and listen to concerns. She previewed homes for us and found us the perfect home! Mara has a great personality and lots of experience in Real Estate . She made our home buying experience enjoyable. We are very happy and highly recommend her.

Bought a home in 2007 in Admiral, Seattle, WA 98126.

Mara is amazing! My husband and I bought our first home through her in 2007. She was extremely knowledgable, always accessible, and went above and beyond our expectations. I have since recommended her to all of my friends and they have all loved her and had great experiences.

Sold a Single Family home in 2009 in Junction, Seattle, WA.

Mara is absoutely wonderful. She is the best agent I have ever had the pleasure of working with. I have used many agents over the years and after I worked with Mara the first time I realized that I had found my ideal agent. She went above and beyond the levels of service that I have ever received before. I really appreciated the fact that she always kept her word and also followed through with the small details. I consider Mara to be extremely detailed oriented, motivated and very savy in her profession. It was a low stress process that went smooth and moved along quickly and efficiently. I felt like Mara always knew what was the right move was at the right time. I have a high level of respect for professionals like Mara who seem to excel and exceed my expectations.

Bought a home in 2009 in Gatewood, Seattle, WA 98136.

I have used Mara to purchase my first home. She was very knowledgable about the area that I was looking in and was very responsive to all of my questions. She never made me feel like a request was too big or small for her to look into. Also, I did not feel pressured to buy...she really wanted to make sure that we found a home that we would be happy in for a very long time. I would highly recommend Mara as an agent and will be using her for any future transactions.

Sold a home in 2011.

Even without the fantastic result - an extremely quick sale in a terrible market - Mara would have been a complete pleasure to work with. She was reassuring, friendly, and gave great advice throughout the entire process.

Sold a Single Family home in 2006 in Bothell, WA.

I both sold and purchased a house with Mara in 2006. Mara went out of her way to make sure the process was fast and easy and that was great. She personally did some minor repairs to my condo to help get it sold. She also deducted $500.00 from her cost becuase I was unhappy with a charge that came up in escrow. However, I don't think that she gave me the best advice and that ended up making my very unhappy in the end. Upon her advice, I did not have my own inspection of the property that I bought. It had been inspected by the person that almost bought it before me and we used the info on that. Well, it turned out that was the worst decision that I ever made. The house wasn't even insulated and the furnace was broken. It was terrible. I was 23 when I purchased it so I really did not know what I was doing. I felt kind of like she did not care what I got as long as she got the commision. If it wasn't that, then Mara is just not very experienced. Either way, I would never use her again.

Bought a home in 2011 in Admiral, Seattle, WA 98116.

Mara was extremely helpful during our house hunting experience. She was very helpful and took the time to listen to our requests and top priorities in our future home. She then went out on the search, previewed several homes, and took us to house after house until we found the perfect match. She was great to work with and really made the entire experience painless and fun! I would highly recommend her for your home buying experience, you wont be disappointed. Thanks Mara for all of your help, we are so happy to be moved into our new home.

Sold a Single Family home in 2004 for approximately $400K in Liberty Ridge, Renton, WA.

My experience with Mara goes back to 2001 when I purchased my first home. She made me feel completely comfortable through the entire process. Her communication, professionalism, friendlyness, and no-pressure approach make her easy to get along with. Combined with her experience and knowledge, Mara is a fantastic agent that sets the bar for everyone else. In fact, I now have roughly 6-7 transactions with Mara and I am still impressed with the level of service she provides, and her attention to detail. Simply stated, she's the BEST...!
