Bought a Single Family home in 2010 for approximately $150K in Clinton, NY.
My wife and I moved to Clinton in 2010 with the help of Mary. My wife grew up in Clinton and it was where we wanted to live and raise a family. We cannot recommend her enough. She was beyond helpful in accommodating our wants and needs in a home. She knew exactly what our budget was and didn’t try to push us into buying a home we couldn’t’ really afford. She was always available when we called to view a home. Once we decided on the home she was really helpful in closing the deal. We always enjoy seeing her around town and consider her a friend not just a real estate agent. If you are looking for a home in the Clinton area please give Mary a call. She will make things easy and fun for you.
Bought a Single Family home in 2004 for approximately $325K in Clinton, NY.
Mary is, hands down, the best realtor in our area. When my husband and I moved to Clinton 10 years ago, colleagues at Hamilton College recommended her office to assist us with our relocation. How right they were! We weren't exactly sure what we wanted in a home and neighborhood, and Mary helped us figure that out...by showing us over 100 homes! Her knowledge of the area, patience with clients, relationships with local businesses and other realtors, and overall cheerfulness and positivism was exactly what we needed during what was, I now realize in hindsight, a very stressful time. I'm not sure how we would have survived without Mary Combs! Now that we have gotten to know her better over the past decade, as a professional colleague and a friend, I can honestly say that I don't think there is another realtor (or professional in general) who works harder for her clients. You can't go wrong with Mary Combs!!!
Bought a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $125K in New Hartford, NY.
Mary helped my husband and I purchase our first home. As newlyweds, who worked in two different counties, we were looking for a home halfway for both of us. Mary helped us from start to finish! She set up appointments for all the houses we wanted to look at, and in addition emailed us with homes that we had not considered. We ended up purchasing a home that she had recommended and was not on our original list! Our first home will always be a special place, and Mary made the process of purchasing it stress-free, fun and easy! We will definitely use Mary again, and highly recommend her to anyone looking to purchase a home!
Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $125K in New Hartford, NY.
We wanted to take a brief moment to express our thanks to Mary Combs for helping us buy our home. We were first time home buyers and Mary was perfect for us. She was very patient with us and took the time to help us through the process. Mary was always there to take a call or answer a question. She seemed to work at all hours for us! She is well connected and very knowledgeable about the area. She worked very hard for us to get what we were looking for and now we are so happy in our home! We had such a good experience with Mary that we still keep in touch. We can't say enough about Mary and when the time comes for us to sell and buy again, she will be our first call.
Although it's been a few years since we've bought and sold homes with Mary, she still finds the time to show us homes when we have thoughts of "downsizing"! She runs an incredible agency with very knowledgeable and friendly agents. She will go the extra mile and we are lucky to have formed a lasting friendship with her!!
Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $425K in Clinton, NY.
We purchased our home in Clinton, NY with the help of Mary Combs, who came highly recommended from co-workers. Mary is very knowledgeable of Clinton, New Hartford and the surrounding towns. We have lived in several states and even aboard, and Mary is one of the best realtors we have worked with. We had a tight timeline and Mary was willing to take time over Memorial Day weekend to meet with us and show us around. We highly recommend Mary Combs.
Sold a Single Family home in 2008 for approximately $700K in New Hartford, NY.
My husband's career has been the reason for many of our moves from city to city and state to state. We have had good realtors but Mary Combs, without a doubt, is the BEST realtor we have ever had work with us. Mary is there for her clients 24/7. If she cannot take your call, she responds in a very timely fashion. She is a native of the Utica, NY area and has an outstanding knowledge of this area. She is the utmost professional and she is honest. Mary worked with us when we were buying our home in 2008. She also listed and sold our home in 2013 when we moved out of the area. Both my husband and I highly recommend using Mary Combs for all of your real estate needs. We are very happy that we did!
Mary came so highly recommended and now we know why. She is able to mix professionalism with an uncanny way of being your friend as soon as she meets you. Mary's advice on what we should do to sell our house was very accurate and she sold it VERY quickly. She is energetic, knowledgeable, extremely reachable, and relentless in bringing the two parties together with an equitable result for everyone. You cannot help but want to work with her. Now we are the ones recommending Mary.

We were delighted with our experience working with Mary! Responsive and informative. Best agent either of us have ever worked with as buyers or sellers. Mary has continued to serve as a resource to us on real estate matters in the 2 years since we first met her. We refer her to friends and our co-workers at SUNY Polytechnic.
Sold a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $75K in Utica, NY.
In the last several years Mary has handled two real estate transactions for me as the seller in both instances. These were involved sales and required much follow up and negotiations. They were all handled professionally and efficiently. Richard a. Grillo
