I have always been passionate and interested in real estate, even since I was a little girl.  I remember the story my Mother told about our Papa and his brothers building their family's home in Italy before World War I.  I was told that when he emigrated to the United States as a stone mason, he purchased his first property in the lower east side of NYC. That's where my Mom grew up. Now there is an elementary school in its place. The second property which is still in our family has helped my Mother survive when our Dad passed at a young age.  "Hold on to the land." I was told.

These experiences are what drove me to become a Realtor.  It is the experiences that I now have and the gratification that I get from working with my clients that keeps me in this field. When hiring me, know that you are going to get my best.

Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $850K in Cedar Grove, NJ.

Met Mary Rose by chance at an open house and she ended up representing us as we searched for our current house. She really, really knows the area. Most impressive was her responsiveness - always easy to get in touch with. I'm convinced that without her guidance we would have ended up paying much more for the property we purchased. She approached the process of negotiating strategically, and we ended up purchasing under my target price. Smooth sailing throughout the process up until the close. It was a pleasure!

In the few months since, she's checked in to see how we're doing, which is much appreciated. Will not hesitate to refer people her way.

Sold a home in 2013.

I worked with Mary Rose Martorell to sell my aunt's house in Montclair. It was a unique property, and she immediately appreciated this and formulated a marketing program to highlight the finest aspects of the house. This strategy proved very successful and we sold the house right away.

She had a keener eye for the value of the property than the other realtors, all of whom estimated that it would sell for far less than it eventually sold for, which was well over even Mary Rose's estimate. If I had gone with one of the other realtors, we probably would have sold it for $30-40,000 less.

The kicker is that I was away for a crucial three weeks during the selling period, and Mary Rose was not only immediately responsive to my requests, but went out of her way to keep me informed, and picked up several details that I had missed.

She has street smarts that get right to the bottom of things, and a sunny personality that is delightful to work with.

Sold a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $325K in Verona, NJ.

Selling your home is not a walk in the park, especially if you are attached to it. In addition, prices are still down and buyers have to meet more and more stringent requirements. Working with Mary Rose was collaborative, intense and successful. I would entrust her with this task again and think that nobody would have been able to do a better job.  More Less
