      • Mary O' Malley Joyce was an unbelievably resourceful and meticulous real estate agent. I was not familiar with the Jersey Shore and what I needed to consider when buying a shore home. She partnered with me in the selection of the homes, quickly ruled out " no go's" , understood my requirements both practically and stylistically and stayed within the budget I had set. I am a busy executive with Johnson and Johnson and literally had one day to come down to review the selection. What really impressed me was that Mary had already visited and researched 15 homes before I had arrived so was incredibly knowledgable about all the good , bad and potential risks of each property which made for a very efficient search and day! We found the perfect beach house on Princeton Ave and Mary managed all the process with expert precision and tact. She is an excellent negotiater! I had many questions throughout the process and Mary was extremely responsive and resourceful in answering all my questions. She further provided invaluable information for furniture, shopping, etc. She stated engaged with me well after the close to ensure a smooth transition. She even managed to find me a free pool table through her connections!!!! I would highly highly recommend Mary to anyone interested in finding a perfect home in the jersey shore area.

      • My husband and I found Mary when we began our search for a home in the Red Bank/Shore area of NJ in the Spring of 2017. She is incredibly knowledgeable about all the shore towns and the neighborhoods within each, which we definitely needed and benefited from as we were unfamiliar with the area. She also listened to our need/want list and respected our budget range. As we lived an hour away during the majority of our search, when we asked about new listings she was open and honest about whether or not she felt the neighborhood and house would meet our needs, as she didn't want us to waste time looking at homes that weren't ideal for us or that were not a good style match. She was always very proactive in sharing new listings with us and very responsive in all of our communications with her. And, her positive style, energy and approach is a wonderful compliment to her expertise. She truly was a gem to work with. During our numerous home viewings, her knowledge and expertise on home structure, especially on older homes, was invaluable to us as buyers, as we were not at all versed on the unique characteristics of 100 plus year old homes, from basements up to the attics. Ultimately due to her help and patience with us, we found a great home that ticked all of the boxes on our 'need' list in a wonderful location in Red Bank. I would highly recommend working with Mary for your real estate needs!

      • Mary is beyond helpful, personable, and knowledgeable. She helped us find the right home for our family in the right neighborhood. She took the time to show us around several towns in NJ until we found the perfect home. We love working with Mary and have and will refer her to all of our friends and family. Mary has become a close friend and a great consultant to us as new home owners in NJ. Throughout the process she was able to offer a referral for everything from home inspectors to asbestos removal to home warranty companies.

      • My family recently worked with Mary OMalley-Joyce when buying a house in the Ocean/Monmouth County area. We think she is -- by a very wide margin -- the best realtor we ever worked with. We wouldnt think of working with a different realtor in the future, and we have already recommended her to several friends and relatives. First, Mary is extremely knowledgeable about virtually every aspect of buying a home. She advised us on a very wide range topics including locations/neighborhoods, school systems, commute times, inspections, legal processes, negotiations, pool safety, different types of layouts, current building codes, community activities and organizations, and which repairs are critical vs. which are purely cosmetic. No matter how experienced a home-buyer may be, its virtually impossible for that home-buyer to be an expert on ALL of these topics. Therefore, Marys expertise was invaluable. Next, Mary got to know our family very well and very quickly. This means she only showed us houses that matched what we wanted. (Actually, this isnt completely true; she knew us well enough to think outside the box, and to also show us houses that we didnt even know we would like.) This also means that she carefully considered what each house would mean to each member of our family. In addition, Mary is very patient and persistent. She was available for us 24/7, and she invested a tremendous amount of time with us. We began looking at houses about 6 months before we became serious buyers, and Mary guided us and advised us through the entire process -- which included regularly informing us about issues involved with the house we were trying to sell. In summary, Mary is the best representative of the realtor profession that we have ever met. Our family came to trust her judgment very quickly, and this made the entire process much easier for us. We sincerely believe that anyone considering buying a house is making a mistake if he or she calls a different realtor.

      • Mary was kind and very helpful! She worked hard to show us properties and was very quick and responsive in communicating with the landlord and having us fill out all of the necessary paperwork. We are very happy with our new apartment and all of Mary's help!

      • Mary was very pleasant, knowledgeable, and charming. She was also very down to earth and realistic to our needs, which was very comforting as we immediately felt that she genuinely wanted to help, and accommodate us.

      • We are in the process of searching for a property with Mary. Not only is she knowledgable, but she has been very patient with me as a first time buyer.

        - PatrickMcFadden
      • Above and beyond. Top notch. There for you. Seriously researches all aspects of the transaction in order to maximise your purchasing/selling experience. You won't find any better. Knowing that the modern real estate market may be scary to the novice, Mary has the talent to maintain her cool and to reinforce the positive aspects of the transaction from start to finish. With her smile, charm and a go gettum attitude, it is, as always, a win / win , with Mary.

      • Whether you're selling or buying, Mary O'Malley-Joyce has you as her top priority! She listens intently to your every need and will fight to get top dollar for your property. If buying, Mary will research your requirements and prepare a map of properties that fit your every need. I would use Mary for any and all my real estate needs and without hesitation recommend her to my friends (and I have).

      • We moved to NJ from TX. We have moved around the country quite a bit, but we knew nothing of the area. Having Mary help us was our good fortune. Mary worked very hard to find us the right home. She has an encyclopedic knowledge of the area Monmouth County and its' history. She knew all of the houses available in our criteria. She knows all aspects of an area. i.e., schools, shopping, parks, busy streets. Mary always made us feel like we were her only clients. She kept us updated and informed by email, phone, and text at every turn. Once we found our house, she was able to help us through the bidding process. Once we were under contract, she helped us understand the entire process to close. Mary has many resources and gave good advice any time we asked for it. Mary is patient and thorough. Mary made our home search so much better and we found exactly what we were looking for.

        - jeanieb005
      • Mary has a very strong base of knowledge of the area and works tirelessly to help find exactly what we were looking for. She has a very positive attitude and responded quickly even as our needs and desires changed during the process.

      • We had a very positive experience working with Mary O'Malley - Joyce. She's very professional and gave us honest feedback from the start. My family had worked with other agents before Mary but without results. When we started working with Mary, we were presented with a thorough plan for how our home would be marketed and what to expect during the process. The plan called for lots of promotion activity immediately and we never doubted that she was on track. Since our home was near water, Mary was very proactive with working with the local agencies for all assessment and documentation requirements. This was especially helpful since this was a second home and we live 90 minutes away. When the right offer was received, Mary helped to negotiate our position and was instrumental in responding courteously while standing our ground. It was a pleasure working with Mary and we're grateful for her expertise. We would work with Mary again in the future and recommend her to others.

      • If you are looking for 5 star representation, look no further. Mary's skill and expertise in today's real estate market is impressive. Her attention to detail in marketing our home set her above all others who had tried and failed. Her professional and positive attitude helped us navigate through the negotiation process with ease. Mary quickly responded to all phone calls, emails and texts addressing all questions and concerns. I would highly recommend Mary to family, friends and anyone selling their home.

      • This was my 13th house and I found Mary O'Malley Joyce to be the best. She negotiated a fair purchase for us and held the deal together through an arduous loan process. After closeing, she actually helped clean refuse from the house. She helped to find us workmen in our new area. She is caring and compassionate. She is a wonderful professional who knows her business.I highly recommend her.

        - Joan JosephCarter
      • Mary was able to get us our dream house when we had only a month left on our lease. We were about to sign another lease when Mary called and told us she thinks we should bid full ask on the house because it was priced fairly and many other would likely try to buy it. She convinced the owner to take our offer and not let anyone else bid while we were in attorney review. 10 other people were interested in the house and wanted to bid because of its location and price but because Mary did such a great job the house was ours! I highly recommend Mary for all your realtor needs. She is the best!

      • This past July my family and I lost our home as a result of a devistating house fire. Our insurance company had contracted with an out of state agency to locate a rental property. As you might well imagine, this did not work out well for us. We began looking on our own; however, we soon realized that securing a rental property was much more difficult now than it had been 30 years ago. Finally, frustrated and loosing hope; I called one morning to inquire about a property in Middletown and Mary O'Malley-Joyce answered my call. When she heard about what we were going through, she not only made an appointment to show us that house, but she had a list of several other homes to visit that same day. After only two days of house hunting, we found the perfect home for us. Mary was so helpful, not only with locating a great property, but also with negotiating a great deal for us and acting as a liasion between us and our Insurance agent. It was like a huge weight lifted off our shoulders! Mary made us feel like we were not just clients, but friends. She always got right back to us when we needed her and went above and beyond our expectations. She has truely been a blessing in our time of need. For these reasons and many more, I would recommend her to anyone who is in the market for a new home or rental property.

      • She always returned my calls. She was responsive to all my concerns during the process and was very professional. I would recommend her to anyone entering the realestate market.

      • This past spring Mary help our family sell the home my mother lived in for the last 60 years. Mary provided excellent advice on the local real estate market and trends. Mary enthusiastically marketed the house, holding multiple open houses and showing the property often. When offers came in she provided advice on how to respond and strategies for counter offers. After the contract was signed, Mary did everything she could to facilitate and expedite the inspection and closing process. We were very pleased with the service that Mary provided and will recommend her to anyone needing the services of a real estate professional.

      • Mary worked with us for about a year to find the right home, after having looked on our own and found one that didn't work out. We still loved this house and she helped us get back into the game, negotiating with a most difficult seller. In any case, she was a driver of making things happen, especially at the end when closing was delayed. She personally got involved to make sure that a C/O was obtained asap and prevent further delay. She was more aware and on top of things than the attorneys or realtors. She definitely went above and beyond. Thanks Mary

      • Mary was great. She was very friendly and knowledgeable. She provided us with great advice and resources for first time homebuyers. We highly recommend her!

        - Jon Faronea
      • Mary walked us through everything from thinking about listing through the closing on the house we'd owned for 38 years. She identified what work would be beneficial to showcase the charm of the 150+ year old house, and found us someone to do it that we could afford (and did great work)!
