    • Mary helped me buy a home

        We bought our condo just in time before the prices started going up. Our home is a foreclosed property and I can honestly say that we could've not done it without Mary. She was quick and very much on top of things. We were up against a cash buyer but Mary worked her magic and our offer got accepted. Everything went on smoothly from start to finish and our escrow closed within 20 days. I highly recommend her services for anyone that wants an agent that will truly work hard for you and understands your needs. Thanks Mary!

        I loved working with Mary and her team. She was very professional and supportive throughout the whole process of selling my home and got me a great price in super fast time. I recommend her without reservation.

      • This is long overdue, as Mary helped my husband and I, as well as our 2 young sons find a home 5 years ago in the Inner Richmond. It was a seller's market (not a shock) and Mary was bound and determined to find us a place, while giving us sound advice on navigating the market. Her relationship to other realtors and the community is priceless. Five years later and we are so happy in our home and are grateful we took Mary's advice to stretch our price range a tad to get a home that has longevity for us (so we haven't had to move again!) Beyond her results, she truly is passionate about finding homes for people in SF. Her charm of having grown up here and the authentic enthusiasm she brings to the process can make even the most jaded SF home buyer smile. I agree with other reviewers that she can indeed perform miracles. :)

      • Not to be sacrilegious, but Mary can perform miracles! Case in point, she managed to keep a middle class family living not only in San Francisco, but in their beloved North Beach neighborhood. Her tenacity, relentless positive attitude and insider connections managed to secure us a flat in the heart of North Beach where we have resided as renters for over 25 years. Mary (and Kathleen) responded to every question, every email or text almost immediately. She held our neophyte buyers hands throughout the process and never failed to reassure us AND go to bat for us. We can't recommend her more strongly, she really "got" us, our financial situation (not rich!) and all of her advice was invaluable. Just when we thought we'd have to leave our neighborhood (and perhaps city) she swooped in and said "Don't give up yet, let me see what I can do." And do she did! We'll forever be grateful.

      • You cannot get any better than Mary Macpherson! She is the total package -- knowledgeable, thorough and professional. She came highly recommended by a friend/neighbor, whose house she had sold a few years back. We had been renting out our condo for several years and living in another city. When our renters moved out, we gave her the keys and Mary and her team did EVERYTHING. From coordinating repairs, painting, inspections, staging and landscaping. She even worked with our prickly neighbors through some storage disputes that had turned ugly. She was very diplomatic with them, yet uncovered a document previously filed with the city that refuted all their claims. Our condo had multiple offers and sold for way over asking price, a direct result of the relentless care and attention Mary and Kathleen paid to staging, marketing and showing our home.

      • Mary and Kathleen are absolute professionals and experts in their field of real estate. They came highly recommended from friends and after interviewing a handful of other agents (also coming as recommendations), Mary and Kathleen were the most prepared, knowledgeable, and had the most to offer in terms of selling our home. They are absolutely an "A+" team and I can't imagine working with anyone else in the sale of our home. Both of them have a tremendous network-- agents, potential buyers, and trusted contractors who will help get your home ready for the sale. We took their advice seriously and followed their counsel and was able to get our condo market ready in record time-- paint, cleaning, garden, staging, kitchen renovations and inspections-- with amazing photos and comprehensive marketing campaign. Our place had the "wow" factor and sold very quickly with a strong, clean, significantly above asking price offer. Home purchasing and sale are the biggest decisions of one's lifetime (and definitely in SF). I highly-- highly recommend anyone looking to purchase or sell to contact Mary and Kathleen. I cannot sing enough praises for Mary. She was with us until midnight to discuss offer options while we were conferring with our east coast family. We signed nearly at midnight (as the sellers) and escrow was open first thing the next day. She was with us every step of the way to make sure the transaction moved swiftly and smoothly on both sides. The two of them go above and beyond for you and your family.

      • My husband and I have known Mary for the past ten years. We recently used her to buy our dream home and sell our old home. Mary was phenomenal! She really listened to our wants/desires and sent us listings immediately matching them. She is someone you want representing you for sure! She is thoughtful, patient, and kind, but most importantly, knows real estate! She is a wealth of knowledge and experience. She did the all the work, answered all of our endless phone calls, texts, and emails. She always kept us updated along the way which really helped reduce all our anxiety we had. She makes you feel like you are her only client while you know she must have numerous. Our purchase was complicated as our current house is a real gem. In today's market we knew it was a stretch for us. When I told Mary I wanted this house, she calmly replied, "Let's get it for you!" She did just that. We ended up in a bidding war and we both feel we won the house due solely to her. She knew exactly when to press for us and when to back off the selling agent. She also always kept our budget in mind, never pushing us to go beyond what we previously agreed upon. Our old house got an offer within hours of our first open house. This again I attribute to her. She made one of the most beautiful home brochures I've ever seen. Hands down she is the best! Lastly, Mary seemed to really enjoy her job and it showed everyday. Thanks Mary! Cheri and Bill

      • Mary recently sold our Condo in San Francisco...It was difficult for us as I didn't really want to sell it but the economics were just not there and it had to happen.Mary was fantastic, giving us realistic market appraisals, advice and counsel throughout the entire process. She made it ridiculously easy and painless.I'm pretty hands on with major life decisions like this and Mary's biggest task was getting me to back away and let her handle it. Which she did beautifully.She coordinated cleaning, staging, gardening and then babysat the property through multiple open houses and individual showings.We received multiple offers and were very pleased with the whole process.Can't recommend her highly enough.
