Ratings & Reviews

I had a very positive experience buying a home from Mary Rittenhouse. I was a first time buyer and came into the process with no knowledge and education on how the process worked. Mary gave me a very detailed introduction to the process and was along with me every step of the way, including introducing me to a mortgage company (Prospect Mortgage) which was very accomendating and we got the commitment super fast! She was always very responsive and even got involved in my calls with the mortgage company to help me figure out the process I was comfortable with (how much to put down, insurences etc). <br/><br/>Me and my husband were under a very tight budget which Mary was understanding about and was able to find us the best homes in our price range. <br/><br/>We started working with her in September 2013 and we closed by the end of the year.

Bought a Single Family home in 2009 for approximately $275K in Linden, NJ.

My husband and I were trying to buy our first home, and we knew nothing about the process but thanks to Mary we were able to get the house we wanted in a timely manner and much more. She was very patient (I'm picky so we saw many houses), she responded quickly to our emails and phone calls. Mary knew the exact things to look out for through our search and thanks to her three years later, we're still loving our house.

Sold a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $450K in Westfield, NJ.

After having negative experiences with other realtors, we decided to list our house "for sale by owner," but had trouble selling. We listed with Mary and the house was under contract two weeks later. She worked diligently contacting potential buyers and other realtors, and holding opening houses. When we entered somewhat of a "bidding war" between two potential buyers, she actually recommended that we go with the buyer that came in through another realtor, because she felt they were stronger than the buyer that she brought in through her office. I have not met many realtors that would give up half of their commission for the sake of their clients. Mary works under the strictest code of ethics, and always had our best interest at heart. She is patient, knowledgeable, and an overall pleasure to work with. She is also a strong negotiator and was able to get us a great offer on our home. I would highly recommend Mary over many other local realtors I interacted with.

Sold a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $325K in Westfield, NJ.

We highly recommend Mary Rittenhouse. Mary's knowledge of real estate made it a much easier experience for first time home sellers. She made endless phone calls on our behalf, and helped us through all the steps needed, such as fire inspections, oil tank removal, and countless other details. She was always extremely pleasant and easy to deal with. She was always available to take our calls/e-mails, and quickly got back to us with answers to our concerns. Mary is the only real estate agent we would ever use in the future.

Bought a home in 2008.

I highly recommend Mary as a Realtor. She was wonderful to work with. She listened to my entire wish list and really tried to understand exactly what I wanted in a new home. She was patient and didn't rush me to make decisions. I felt that she truly cared about what I wanted. I would absolutely recommend her as your realtor. She was so wonderful to work with and I will work with her again next time!
