Mary and her team were very professional yet personal. THEY WERE ALWAYS AVAILABLE! Which is great when going through buying a home. They did a fantastic job making something very complex and difficult, very easy for me. She was so helpful while we went through the process, even through it was very challenging property to purchase. I would definitely use Mary and her team again for another buy or sell since she was exactly what I needed in my time of need. She supplied me with the expertise needed to get through every bump in the road.

Julie, it was so rewarding helping you make this purchase a reality! I know the process seemed complicated, rough, and maybe even a little bit scary but that is the biggest thrill for me and my team when we CAN make it happen despite the difficulties! It has been wonderful getting updates on all of your renovations. You had the vision and it's exciting to see you making this property everything you dreamed it would be. Thank you for allowing us to be a part of that dream come true.
Mary's team, Lydia in particular, was outstanding. Incredible knowledge of the market. I was so pleased at her approach to the sale of the property. We received more than our asking price and she even helped guide the process for a owner financed situation which yielded us greater returns on this investment. From Lydia's initial evaluation, though her coaching on staging to the conclusion of the transaction, our experience with her was first rate.

My husband and myself we wowed by Lydia and her team!!!!!They are incredibly knowledgeable, professional, and kind! Lydia kept us informed during the entire process, she made the entire transaction go smooth and with ease due to their vast knowledge of the business. They were a joy to work with. We sought out Mary Prieto's team because we had heard she was one of the top agents, and her and her team did not disappoint. In fact they went above and beyond expectations. Thank you!

Mary and her team did a superb job in helping me to sell a property that was unique, and thus took some doing! I especially appreciated their responsiveness to all our questions, and their persistence through a process that wasn't always easy. Their understanding and compassion made a big difference to me personally, and I appreciated their non-judgmental attitudes. I'd highly recommend this team!

Veronica, on behalf of the entire Prieto Team, we'd like to thank you for choosing us to help you sell your unique property. We were up for the challenge and excited to have been able to find the perfect buyer for it too. The buyer is so happy with the property and we know that helping you sell it enabled you to attain your new dream property. At the end of the day, that's what it all about; helping clients reach their real estate goals. We are very grateful to have met you and look forward to keeping in touch.
Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $225K in Modesto, CA.
We started looking for a home about a year ago and just couldn't find the right one, until we walked into the one we purchased. Mary did say that we would know when the right one came along and she wasn't wrong. We love our home and are so grateful to Mary and her Team for being so patient with us and holding our hand through the entire process. Being first time home buyers we had tons of questions and had many concerns but Mary and her Team were always there to reassure us. Mary is a great negotiator and got us a great deal. We were truly blessed to have Mary and her team represent us.

Tony & Ava, we couldn't me more proud to have helped you reach "The All-American Dream" of homeownership. We knew the right home was out there and we are so happy you found it. We are so glad that you found our Team to be helpful and instrumental in your buying process. We enjoyed working and getting to know you and look forward to helping you with all of your real estate needs.
If you’re looking for a top notch real estate team…look no further! Mary Prieto and her team of professionals will take care of all your needs. When we were searching for a home several years ago, Mary listened to our needs and found the perfect home to meet all our desires. When a job change made it necessary to move out of state, we didn't hesitate to call Mary. Mary and her crack team went right to work marketing our home and quickly had it sold for the price we wanted. When the buyers hit a snag, Mary handled the problem quickly and professionally, to the satisfaction of both parties. We highly recommend Mary Prieto and her very capable team. Whether you are buying or selling, you will be well taken care of by a friendly and truly caring real estate group who will treat you like family, not just another sale.

Tony and Minnie, it has been such a pleasure to have known and worked with you both over so many years. Although we were sad to see you leave our area, we are proud to have been a part of helping you transition to this new chapter in your lives. We wish you all the best and look forward to keeping in touch. And if moving back to the Modesto area ever becomes a possibility again, we'll be here for you!

Terrible real estate team...I called to ask for single story homes for sale. The lady said there are none. Ive said I wanted to sell my house and use that money to buy a home. How does a real estate agent not have one single story home available?! She told me to call another agent.
Response from Mary on 10/28/2014
Thank you for taking the time to let me know about our encounter. I apologize for seemingly not understanding your needs and quite frankly and embarrassingly I cannot recall the situation when we met. I do remember one phone call about a rental. Obviously by the other reviews, our team is not normally unhelpful or curt. Our goal is always to be a team of excellence. Unfortunately, we fell short and I apologize. Please let us know if there is any way to regain your acquaintance and perhaps through that process regain your business.
My fiancé and I were looking at houses on Zillow around 9pm on a Sunday night and decided to call the listing agents number on a whim. We left a quick message for them to call us back and to our surprise we got a call back from Lydia (one of Mary's team members) five minutes later. We ended up not purchasing that residence but we now have a wonderful home that they helped us find and could not be happier with the service that we received from their team of real estate professionals.

Maria, we are so happy to have connected with you and Tommy. It was such a delight helping you find the most perfect home to suit your needs. Even more of a thrill is that we were able to close escrow before your wedding date. What a wonderful way to start your lives together! You made our job feel so easy as you both were wonderful to work with. We wish you the very best in this new chapter of your lives together and we look forward to being your real estate team.

Mary and her team took all of our request and work very hard to meet and complete those request. We were always greeted with a smile and welcoming works. Mary or one her team was always available to us when we call or dropped by the office, with or without an appointment. They are a hard working group and would highly recommend them .
Response from Mary on 10/03/2014
Thank you for your kinds words. It is a privilege to have represented your niece first in the sale of a property and then your mother in the sale of her home she had owned for 50+ years. We understood the importance of helping make this transition as easy as possible for her and the entire family. We look forward to keeping in touch with everyone!
