Sold a Single Family home in 2015 for approximately $225K in Oakbridge Community, Madison, WI.

Mary was always very responsive and willing to assist in any way she could. There was never a time when we weren't able to contact her or get information quickly. She was very knowledgable and went above and beyond to help us through the process of selling our home. I would highly recommend Mary and wouldn't hesitate to use her services again in the future.

Sold a Single Family home in 2015 for approximately $250K in Stone Meadows, Madison, WI.

Mary is fantastic to work with. She possesses great knowledge and insight of the Madison market and the real estate transaction process. The counsel and resources she provided were essential to a quick and easy sale. We also bought our new condo through Mary and couldn't be more pleased.

Mary was extremely knowledgeable, helpful, and responsive to our needs. She spent an incredible amount of time with us and was extremely patient with our idiosyncrasies. I really appreciated her friendliness and positive attitude. She had sound advice for us and did her best to make our house search a lot of fun.

Sold a Single Family home in 2015 for approximately $250K in Glacier Ridge, Madison, WI.

I like to make my reviews simple, and easy for people to understand. Mary Duff was the VERY best. I would like to list her positive attributes: 1. Mary always responded to phone calls and emails within minutes of me sending them. 2. When we discussed pricing, she was realistic. Some real estate professionals would have urged us to ask a lower price, but Mary opted for investigating our neighborhood and the setting the price at a true fair value instead of an unreasonably low price, just to move the house quickly. 3. When we did ask her about lowering the price, she was very careful about not lowering it too fast, or by too much. We did moderate price adjustments, to find the exact sweet spot of the market, enabling us to sell the house within a reasonable period of time, but not have a fire sale. 4. Mary offered so many additional services as part of her work with us. She sent a professional home staging person who did a walkthrough of our house for an hour, telling us how to best present our home, with lots of very valuable advice. The photographer Mary sent was excellent. He knew how to take pictures in such a way as to present the house in the best possible way, without using ridiculous camera lenses that would have given an unrealistic impression. As time passed, the photographer came out again, to take new pictures of the house during winter, so that it was "seasonally appropriate" in the listing and did not look stale. 5. The open houses-----oh the open houses! Mary scheduled open houses for us EVERY two weeks, on average. It was amazing the amount of open house opportunities which were given to us. 6. The showings: Every time we had a showing, Mary would follow up with the potential buying agent and clients within 24 hours, and then would send the feedback to us via email or phone calls, right away. This was enormously helpful to us, knowing what people liked, what people didn't like, etc. 7. The for sale sign: Once it blew over in high winds. I called Mary and someone came out the very next day to fix it! Again, note the high level of responsiveness. 8. Knowledge of the selling process. Mary knows a LOT about the technical portion of the selling process, the closing, etc. She walked us carefully through everything, knew the answers to all of our questions and made us feel that everything would go smoothly because she had covered everything in advance. She truly instills a sense of confidence. 9. Mary has an assistant named Anne Marie who is equally responsive and kind and pretty funny as well On occasions when Mary was with another customer, Anne Marie would be right there, with us, easy to contact and again----highly responsive. 10. The home warranty. Mary offered us the opportunity to purchase a home warranty, through UHP, which covered all the plumbing, electrical and mechanicals in the house, which covered us while the house was for sale and for the new buyers, one year after the sale. Our water heater broke a month after we bought the warranty and the UHP people were fantastic...They replaced it right way with a much better new one! The home warranty matters to potential buyers, let me assure you of that. It was money well spent. If I have to sell another home, I will most certainly retain Mary Duff again. She is the best. She changed my view of the realty profession. she worked so hard to present our house in the best way possible, to provide us with maximum selling opportunities and to get us the best price. I can't say enough good things about our experience with Mary. We have not a single complaint. We were delighted. In summary, Mary is highly competent, very outgoing, full of energy, honest, dedicated, intelligent, pleasant to be around, an expert in her field, professional, and made us feel at ease at every point in the process. Mary is the best of the best. I give her my sincere endorsement.

Sold a home in 2014 in Madison, WI.

Mary was professional, responsive, candid, and forthright in dealing with me. She gave me excellent advice and even when I didn't always take it, treated me like a favorite client. I would happily hire her again and have already referred her to other friends.
