There is nothing that gives me more enjoyment and satisfaction than seeing the joy and excitement of my client’s reaction after finding their dream home! It gives me a feeling of fulfillment to hear them express how much they love & appreciate their home and how it has enhanced their lives months and years later.
My approach to assisting buyer clients is consultative by nature. I make a significant effort to really listen to what’s important in their lifestyle choices, floor plan layout, architectural styles, neighborhood preferences, choice of schools, budget and everything that they share about their goals, priorities, and dreams. I then make an exhaustive effort staying on top of evolving inventory daily, assessing and vetting properties, communicating with listing agents and encouraging my clients to stay the course until we have secured the home of their dreams.
When selling your home, it matters who you choose for representation. There is a difference between just listing and selling it, as compared with maximizing your home’s equity benefiting from the impact of a comprehensive, successful marketing strategy. I’m often able to increase or leverage my client’s equity using the cost-free benefits of the Compass Concierge program. They also profit from my years of experience in knowing how to increase market appeal, elite caliber staging, world-class photography, local and international marketing platforms, the use of cutting-edge technology and social media.
I’ve been a full-time resident and real estate broker exclusively in the Seattle and Eastside for more than 15 years. As a result, I have an intimate knowledge of our unique niche neighborhoods and can often make recommendations of desirable areas that are great fits for my client’s lifestyle choices and budget.
My extensive real estate experience includes luxury estates, new construction, relocation, condos, multi-family, investment, 1031 exchanges, and commercial properties throughout King, Snohomish, Kitsap, and Island counties. I’ve also worked extensively with builders on condo conversions and new construction projects.
In 2019, I was selected to be a member of the Coast to Coast Network, which is comprised of an elite group of the top realtors and brokers in the nation.
I take pride in conducting all aspects of my business with ethics, transparency, and honesty.
My diverse education and business background have assisted me in being successful in my real estate career. Including a BA degree from the University of Florida and double master’s degrees (MBA & MSHA) from the University of Colorado.
My multi-lingual skills in Mandarin, Cantonese and being fluent in English also enable me to assist international clients interested in either relocating to Seattle or in diversifying their portfolios to include Puget Sound’s real estate investment opportunities. Multi-lingual skills also benefit my Seattle seller clients, as there is a large footprint of Asian buyers in Seattle. It’s a communication and marketing advantage when representing my clients and their properties.
Buyers and sellers deserve the best possible representation and guidance when hiring a broker to assist them in purchasing or selling real estate. Their home or property is often their most valuable asset and they need an advocate who has the experience and honesty to help them be successful.
Seattle is a challenging, intense market, so it’s imperative to be available days, evenings and weekends to fit my client’s schedules and be able to react quickly in this competitive environment.
While I appreciate being acknowledged for my track record of success, exceptional negotiation & communication skills, ethics and unsurpassed client services resulting in many industry awards and earning the respect of my peers. However, I don’t measure my success through achievements, but through the satisfaction of my clients.
You will also benefit from my extensive team of resources offering access to some of the Seattle area’s most experienced escrow, title & mortgage companies, financing options, property management, HD professional photography, impactful elite caliber staging, interior design, home inspection, painters, handyman services and knowledgeable contractors to ensure that your experience is efficient, seamless and successful.
My entire body of experience…extensive real estate knowledge, education, business management, and customer service…helps me to provide you with great ideas and recommendations and then to execute them in a manner that’s as much fun for you as it is for me!
"Mary is the most professional, patient, proactive and knowledgeable real estate agent I have encountered during my over 20 years of global property investing across five countries in two continents. Her knowledge of my unique needs and purchase criteria were directly responsible for identifying a brief window of opportunity to purchase a newly built home which in the six months from purchase to the closing date in late Nov 2017, has already become a significantly profitable investment. Mary's customer service does not end with the signing of a sale contract, but extends to all post-sale matters pertaining to a successful closing including communications with seller, title company, notary, and financing bank, and all matters related to preparing an investment property for market including identifying a reputable property manager and facilitating home inspections and tours, appliance deliveries and other activities necessary to prepare the property for rental. I enthusiastically and unreservedly recommend Mary to anyone seeking to buy or sell a home in the Seattle area."
