I was a first time home buyer and I had no idea where to start with buying a new home. Mary Schaner was a fabulous realtor that made home buying seem easy. She worked night and day for me to find my new home. When we finally found my dream house it was a short sale. Mary used every resource available to us to make the process go as smoothly and cheaply as possible. If it wasn’t for her incredible knowledge and knowhow of housing law, I would not be living in my house today. I would greatly recommend Mary Schaner to any one looking to buy a new home.
Mary Schaner was the absolute best!! It was evident that Mary was very knowledgeable about the housing industry. There were many times when I would want to see a house at random/different times of the week and she was always so flexible to work around my schedule to meet with me. She would always notify me about homes that she found and was always so willing to meet with me whenever fit best for my schedule. There were also a few times where I would call Mary about seeing a home and she was so great in meeting with me on a 1 hour notice! She was so efficient with taking us to see homes and answering all my questions. The house that I decided to buy happened to be a short sale and Mary did an outstanding job moving the short sale along. Normally, a short sale would take a long time, but with her persistence and knowledge it made the process move along a lot faster. There is nothing but great things to say about Mary!! I would highly recommend Mary for your real estate agent!
Mary was very helpful and informative throughout the buying process. She was readily available with any questions we had during the entire process. While buying a home is extremely stressful, Mary made sure everything was in place and ready to be executed for the closing date. We would definitely use her again.
I have been thinking about buying a house for quite some time but didn’t really know any agents. I met Mary by chance and felt very comfortable with her style right away. She was not pushy and listened to what I was looking for in a new home. Mary was always responsive and energetic and when she couldn’t take my call she would get back to me right away. I would highly recommend Mary to anyone who is looking for a pleasant buying experience, and someone who listens and has a get it done mentality.
Sincerely, Adam Jones
Mary did an absolutely amazing job representing my fiance and I when we bought our first house this past January. Mary was absolutely incredible and so thorough in her assistance. We looked at a few different properties and ended up submitting an offer on one in Pasadena.
She was so patient and personable. She also was ALWAYS reachable, returning our phone calls, emails, or text messages any time we had a question. Mary also explained everything within the contracts if we had questions. She had no problem adjusting to meet us when it fit our busy schedule!
Mary was very well connected with a variety of companies that could assist us with our home buying process. From lenders, Home inspectors and even pest control companies! Anything we had a question about Mary had the answer and if she didn’t know , she quickly found out and responded to our questions.
Mary definitely made home buying a pleasure and FUN!! She is PERFECT for first time home buyers or if you are looking for your lifelong dream house !
She definitely has two satisfied clients for life!
We thank you Mary -Timothy and Rachel , Maryland
Mary was a complete delight im so very happy she called me and that I had her help im now moving into the home of my dreams in march because of her help! I would recommend Mary to all my friends! Thanks again!
Mary is very knowledgeable and offered great ideas and advice for selling our home and purchasing another. She is a pleasure to work with and always makes herself available to answer questions or handle any concerns or snags we’ve hit along the way. We could always count on her! I will recommend her to all of my friends and family and wouldn’t hesitate to call her in the future for any real estate needs.
Mary was very helpful and professional throughout the entire home sale process. She understood and promoted the unique benefit of the community beach and pavilion with running water and real bathrooms. Mary discovered hardwood flooring under the carpets and suggested removing all the carpet and exposing the wood floors. It made a real difference in piquing buyer interest, resulting in two immediate offers. Mary was very resourceful in getting a shelter to take all the usable furniture making us feel good in the process. She kept me informed of the sale status, at least weekly. When the buyers buyer was unable to secure financing through their chosen lender Mary found them a more cooperative financial institution. Then she shepherded the second tier buyers through the entire process, using her influence to get it done in a timely manner. All this and Mary wasn’t even their agent. She knows now to get things done and keep the process on track.
It was time to relocate my elderly parents who had lived in their house since they purchased it new but the house needed some repairs and upgrades prior to putting the house on the market. I had completed all the repairs and the bulk of the upgrades prior to contacting Mary.
When we contacted Mary she was very quick in getting out to the house reviewing what we had done and consulting us on getting the most return for our dollars on the remaining upgrade items. I have bought and sold 5 other homes that I had renovated so I considered myself pretty knowledgable in “what sells”. Mary’s extensive knowledge and experience definitely saved us time in getting the house on the market quicker and money on upgrades that would have had minimal return. Once we had completed all our work Mary came in and staged the house with the perfect accessories to accentuate the highlights of the home and took a lot of high quality pictures for online listing.
Once the house was on the market Mary was quick in listing the home on multiple sites for maximum exposure. She had a full price contract for us within 5 days of listing.
Through the whole process Mary did a great job representing my parents and protecting their interests. She also did an OUTSTANDING job explaining everything to them though out the process (no matter how many times she had to repeat herself she kept a smile). Our family HIGHLY recommends Mary!!
My wife and I expressed an interest in a particular neighborhood that is often in high demand to Mary Schaner, knowing that it may be quite some time before a house became available. Mary kept us in mind and each time there was a listing, she called us to let us take a look. Her patience was appreciated and finally, after a lot of thought, we decided to purchase a house Mary found for us. She went above and beyond, working with us so that we could get what we felt was a fair purchase price, even convincing the seller to allow our contingency. It was a competitive situation, but Mary worked with us diligently. After a long couple of months waiting for our house to sell, we finally settled on the house and neighborhood we had been dreaming about. I’m convinced that none of this would have happened if Mary hadn’t taken the time to keep in touch with us, staying on top of the market in our neighborhood of choice. I highly recommend Mary Schaner – a more friendly, conscientious and driven agent can’t be found.
My husband and I were first time home buyers. Mary took the time to explain how the whole home buying process worked. She took us out to see many houses whether that was in the snow, week nights or weekends. Once we were in the contract phase, she stayed engaged and made sure that everything ran smoothly. She answered all of our numerous questions and just made the home buying experience a great one. We would highly recommend her to our friends and family.
Mary was amazing. She helped us with everything. We were as important as someone buying a million dollar house. She was quick to get back to us with information and listings. If we ever buy a house again she will be our first call
Me and my fiancé just purchased our first home!! It was made to be a comfortable and easy experience because of Mary Schaner! I recommend her to anyone you will not be disappointed!
My husband and I worked with Mary to purchase an investment property. She was professional, knowledgable about the local market, and responded quickly to any questions or problems we had. We highly recommend Mary and plan to work with her again.
Mary was our realtor when buying a house. She was extremely knowledgeable and helpful throughout the process. We were first time buyers and were unfamiliar with the process, but she made us feel at ease and provided us with the knowledge to make our house buying experience a very pleasant one. She was readily available and was happy to assist us. Through her extensive knowledge and actions, you can tell that Mary is truly dedicated and passionate about her job as a realtor and her service to her clients! I would highly recommend Mary as your realtor!!
I was referred to Mary by a friend who knew I needed expert guidance and assistance finding a new home for my family. We had pinpointed the community we wanted to live in and Mary immediately went to work. Mary had indepth knowledge of the community, the amenities, the inventory and the current market. She found us the perfect home and assisted us in selling ours as well. She is an expert at managing client relationships with a very personable yet professional approach. We couldn’t be happier to sell our home quickly and be in our new home in such a short amount of time. We would definitely recommend her to anyone! Thanks so much Mary!
