Bought a Single Family home in 2014 in Borrego Springs, CA.
Our house hunting experience with Mary was excellent from the get go. We arrived at her office out of the blue and after asking a few questions she established what we wanted and in a matter of a few hours showed us a house that exceeded our wildest expectations. We made an offer as soon as we got loan pre-approval. Mary is very good at understanding her clients.

During the escrow process she anticipated snags and was able to advise us in advance on how to avoid problems. For example she told us what we needed to do about flood insurance before the mortgage people even figured out what was needed thus avoiding what could have held up loan approval. She really knows her business.

After we closed she also was exemplary in follow up. She was a great help with any settling in questions we had. She always had plenty of time for us even after the sale. She truly is a professional and we cannot say enough good words about her.

Sold a Single Family home in 2013 in Borrego Springs, CA.
Mary Watkins accepted a very challenging real estate issue when my family approached her. We had been in a dispute regarding our home and the mortgage contract since 2005. At that time, the broker for the lender, Countrywide Home Loans, the seller of the home, King Flippy, LLC., and the realtor, Norma Sladana, colluded. Countrywide never corrected our loan documents or explained them to us. The realtor and the seller went AWOL. In 2007, Bank of America acquired our mortgage when Countrywide was decertified by the Federal Government and brought into court for multiple charges. Bank of America just perpetuated the fraud, and after receiving no assistance in correcting the loan documents or in renegotiating our loan, my family chose to go through the process of a short sale of our home. Mary Watkins agreed to pursue this case, and it was in less than a year she succeeded in finding a buyer and getting Bank of America to accept the short sale. My family and I are available for any references in regards to realtor Mary Watkins.

Mary was very knowledgable about all things real estate and especially the local market. She was very responsive to all my questions. She caught a couple of mistakes that the escrow company had made. All in all she was very easy to work with. I am very happy with the house I bought.

Bought a Condo home in 2005 for approximately $250K in Borrego Springs, CA.
I have to say I have been buying Real Estate for many years and Mary Watkins stands out to be one of the most honest & caring Real Estate Professional's that I have encountered. She will go the extra mile for you and will actually put her clients first before herself! I would recommend Mary to any one of my family or friends in a heart beat. It's so refreshing to know that there are agents out there that are so caring and friendly and after the transaction is completed you have a new friend! Sincerely, Eileen Childress

Mary is excellent!! She is very a savvy negotiator, sharp business owner and highly knowledgeable/reputable. I do not think there is anyone in the Borrego Springs area which has a more comprehensive understanding of real estate and the excellent buying opportunities here. I highly recommend her and can only say that I am extremely happy with the home I purchased in 2010.

Bought a Single Family home in 2011 for approximately $125K in Borrego Springs, CA.
In looking for my retirement home I chose Borrego Springs as my preferred location. After looking around online, I contacted several realtors to decide who to use in this crucial search. After talking with several local relators which included Mary Watkins of Borrego Valley Realty, I decided to work with Mary as my only realtor and placed all my trust in her to help me find the right house for me. I chose Mary for many important reasons. One was her history living in the Borrego Springs area and also having roots nearby as a San Diego native with excellent knowledge about San Diego County. Another was her excellent knowledge of all the extremely important “little” things that only long time locals can know that are so important in getting a “feel” for an area. Time and time again through this whole process, I was so thankful for precious bits of knowledge and pertinent information she shared that helped me make the right decisions at the right times. The most important thing that finally convinced me to fully trust my search for my retirement home to Mary was simply Mary’s complete dedication to her clients that she demonstrated to me in everything she does. Mary was very thorough in every detail along this daunting and confusing process. When problems or unforeseen issues came up Mary kept me calm and guided me through dealing with each item quickly and easily. When I asked any one of the countless questions along the way Mary always took the time to carefully explain the answers in a timely and complete manner. Her knowledge and patience are unmatched. In short, Mary makes you feel like you are her only client, that the home she is helping you find is the most important thing in both of your lives. She worked hard from the beginning to the very end, to the close of escrow and she was THE catalyst that made my search and purchase of my Borrego Springs retirement home a genuinely enjoyable experience from start to finish with a fantastic outcome. I ended up with a fantastic home and I gained a great friend in the process. I feel Mary helped me to discover the best of Borrego along the way and introduced me to many of the local folks, all of who have made me feel right at home in Borrego Springs from the time I met them. Mary Watkins of Borrego Valley Realty – Highly recommended
