Mary Wenderlich
Keller Williams Realty Greater Rochester
About Mary

I am the Team Leader and Listing Specialist to The Mary Wenderlich Team. I am very passionate about my work and believe that it shows every day. I am a very positive person who likes to have a little fun along the way. Buying or selling real estate does not have to be stressful. With the right people it can actually be a lot of fun. So, what makes me different than other Real Estate agents? The answer to that question is easy. I understand that each person’s needs and goals are different, as individual as they are. What is important to one person may be totally different than what is important to another. For example, one person may want to sell their home for the most money possible and is willing to do work to make that happen. The next person may want to just sell the home as fast as possible without having to do any work or repairs. My job is to listen to YOU, what YOU are trying to accomplish and then take the appropriate action to make sure we accomplish that. I hold a Bachelor of Science Degree in Health Service management. I worked for 11 years as a Human Resource Manager at one of the area’s top Skilled Nursing Facilities. Our senior population will always have a special place in my heart and I have a sincere passion for working with them. When I am not helping people buy or sell real estate I enjoy taking vacations to some of my favorite spots as well as discovering new ones. I enjoy hiking with my two golden retrievers, gardening and exercising. Thank you for spending time on my site. I would welcome the opportunity to assist you with any real estate needs you have now or in the future. We make it all about YOU at The Mary Wenderlich Team and YOU will love our service. I guarantee it!

What should you look for when interviewing a real estate agent in Rochester?
When you sell a house, your real estate agent becomes your business partner, financial advisor, and emotional support system. It’s crucial to partner with someone you trust, so make sure you’re looking for an agent who can answer all of your questions with confidence during the interview. During this process, you want to get to know the agent’s business and find out how well they know the area. You’re listening for things that signal experience, expertise in your community, and workload. Selling a home takes an enormous amount of work, so you need an agent who’s got a plan for prep, pricing, and marketing and who is ready to roll up their sleeves to get the job done.

When is the right time to hire a real estate agent in Rochester?
The best window to contact an agent to sell your home is anywhere from three to six months in advance of your list date. When you start the search for an agent several months before hitting the market, there’s plenty of time to find the best agent, make key renovations, and market your home effectively, all of which are essential steps in selling your home for a great price.

The right time to hire a real estate agent depends on the temperature of the housing market. For example, the best time to sell in Rochester is in May. And since it takes around 3 months to close on a home, you should list in February. We recommend that you hire a real estate agent as soon as you're thinking of selling your home. Generally speaking, that's anywhere from 3 to 6 months prior to your desired move date.
