Cheryl Harris-Paredes: "We want to thank you sincerely for all the work and professionalism you have put into helping us find our home here in the Northern Virginia area. We honestly expected no more than a business transaction, someone to sell us a home with their bottom line in mind, but what we got from you was so much more. As an active duty military family, having gone through this process twice already, we were just amazed at the level of professionalism and thoughtfulness you put into this experience. You treated us with true professionalism and respect. You LISTENED to us, rather than trying to sell us, in your efforts to find for us exactly what we were looking for. And, you were always available when it was convenient for us, never pushy, and consistently working with us to ensure a great value for the money we were spending. You also made the home buying experience easy, by providing us with proven references for reputable local lending and title companies, all of whom were also very professional"
Bill and Kendra Calhoun: "Mary was far more than a real estate agent for us. When my wife got a great job offer in South Dakota, our first thought was how would we ever be able to juggle selling our house if we were half-way across the country ? Well, Mary was just wonderful. She made sure our property was made ready to sell and kept up—from hiring contractors to do a few touch-up jobs to keeping our lawn service going. She managed across the distance with skill and professionalism. We were thrilled with her service. She went the extra mile to ensure that our house sold without added stress—and our house sold quickly which was another testament to Mary’s ability to get the job done! We highly recommend Mary without reservation."
Paully Venne: "Mary was very helpful in guiding us though buying our home. She was very experienced, informative and responsive during the whole process. She was a pleasure to work with and I highly recommend Mary Palma for anyone looking for their next home."
The Schreibers: "As first time homebuyers my husband and I knew it was important to have a real estate agent that was knowledgeable of the industry and the local area. We had tested the waters with a few other agents before we came across Mary through a property she had listed. She was extremely professional and responsive which is very important to someone like me who asks a lot of questions. The most impressive part about working with Mary were her continued efforts after our closing date in addition to all of her hard work helping us with work at the house while we were still living 30 miles away. Needless to say, I will recommend Mary to anyone I know looking to enhance their experience buying a home in the Northern Virginia area!"
J. Bobbitt: "You were a very great help to me in finding the "right" home for me. As you know I was not looking for too large of a house since it was just me and the dog. You were very thorough in researching the area where I wished to live and even though we looked at many houses you found what I wanted. I would most certainly recommend anyone to you who wishes to find a good realtor who is willing to go "above and beyond". Thanks for being my Realtor."
Ms. Salinas: "When I first decided to buy a home I thought it was going to be a headache, and just a pain to go through. So I would like to take the time to thanking you for all your hard work in helping me buy my first home. I appreciate you taking your time in showing me homes and having the patience with me in finding the perfect house. You really made things go real smooth and with no difficulties. If I ever had any questions you were real quick in responding and always had an answer. I'm very pleased with your services and have no doubt that I'll refer you to my friends and family. Thank you."
Ms. Jenkins: "I am can attest that Mary Palma is a true professional and dedicated to ensuring her clients are truly happy. Buying a house or even selling can be very stressful but with Mary's help it has been a smooth process. I was given Mary's name back in 2009 by a good friend who had used her as a realtor. My fiend had nothing but good things to say about Mary and highly recommended her. Everything my friend said was true! Not only did Mary help me buy a house but she has also helped me sell it years later and find a rental. I put my trust in Mary and she went above and beyond ensuring that I was taken cared of during both the buying and selling process. I have heard horror stories of realtors not helping their clients out to the best of their ability and I am lucky to say my realtor was the best. Never once have I contacted Mary and she not answer my question right away. I had contacted Mary very hesitant about selling my house and how long the process would take during the Christmas"
Mark and Cynthia Stinson: "The number of tasks required to complete the purchase of an older home is mind-boggling. They usually require more inspections than newer homes, and the results often cause contract renegotiation or termination. It takes a very knowledgeable, organized, determined and professional Realtor to successfully facilitate the sale and/or purchase of an older home. Mary Palma is that Realtor! Mary represented both buyer and seller in our purchase of a 1950’s bungalow. She took ownership of every task required and coordinated every inspection. When results were negative, Mary worked very tactfully with both parties to reach agreement on remedial actions. Her ability to work through potential “deal breakers” and provide an overall positive experience was amazing! She guided us from failed inspections and code violations to hugs and handshakes at closing. Buyer or Seller, old home or new, Mary Palma is the Realtor for you!!"
Jason Moore: "Mary was extremely excellent to work with. I was a first time home buyer who was nervous and inexperienced. She immediately put me at ease and made the process as smooth as possible. She made my first time home buyer experience perfect. We looked at over a dozen houses. She was with me during all the walk-throughs'. She knew the type of house I wanted. She did a wonderful job meeting me for showings on weeknights and weekends away from family time. I am so happy she was my agent."
Ronald Townsen: "I first met Mary when moving out to NOVA from San Diego, CA. She collected the information on what I was looking for; showed me a number of possibilities and helped me through the paperwork and negotiations once I decided. I have been very pleased with her work and we continue to be in contact over the years."
Vanessa Chapman: "I'm a first time homebuyer and Mary provided my husband and I with a wonderful experience. She was very attentive and patient with us as we knew little about the process of buying a home. Mary found us a great place that we're thrilled with and she also helped my friend and his family find a rental home. So she does more than buying and selling. She's a very knowledgeable and caring person and I highly recommend her!"
M. Ramirez: "We can't speak highly enough of our experience with Mary Palma. We were first-time homebuyers with very little knowledge about how to find the right place. She is a very professional real estate agent who listened to our specific wants and needs. She is knowledgeable, experienced, communicative. If you're looking for an agent that will work hard for you and truly do everything possible to make your deal work, then Mary is the person you want to talk to. I highly recommend Mary."
H. Holsomback: "Mary is an outstanding realtor and my experience with her was wonderful! She answered all of my questions and walked me through the process - I didn't have to worry about anything. She is a delightful person to work with!"
