We just want to tell you that we will be forever grateful to our attorney for putting us in touch with you to sell our Latham house. We were very concerned that, since we now live in Florida, we would list the house long distance and never know what -- if anything -- was happening. We thought we'd have a problem trying to keep on top of the real estate agent.
But you kept us thoroughly informed at all times, which we definitely appreciated. And after all the hard work you did marketing the property, it was pretty thrilling to get three simultaneous offers! All we had to do was pick the best one. You made it a fast, smooth sale.
Thank you so much for all the extra, caring things you did for us. We sincerely wish you the best.

Thank you again for the tremendous job you did in selling my house in Colonie this past year. I could not have wished for a better real estate agent. Your knowledge and experience were instrumental in realizing a final sale price that was well beyond anything I could have anticipated.
You have all the attributes that helped to make the sale a very positive experience for me. You were always cheerful and upbeat, with a great sense of humor. At the same time, you were also frank in pointing out pros and cons that you felt I should take into consideration when decisions had to be made. You were tenacious on my behalf whenever some prodding was needed to move the whole process along, always kept me up-to-date on any matters relating to the sale of the property, returned my calls promptly, and followed through on anything you said you were going to do.
One thing that stands out for me is how you handled the sale of the house. You applied your knowledge and experience to help me set the sale price correctly in order to attract maximum attention. Then you capitalized on the strong initial interest by setting up a bidding procedure that was finalized only four days after the property went on the market. When we met to review the ten offers that the bidding procedure had generated, you had everything charted and ready to present to me. You answered my questions and pointed out the pros and cons of the offers that interested me the most. You were so well prepared that the whole process took only about an hour, and when I left I was confident that I had accepted the right offer. I would recommend you without reservation to anyone who is looking for a real estate agent!
Thank you for all your help in selling our house on Rosendale Road in Niskayuna. As you know, the home had NOT sold with another realty company and -- prior to putting the home back on the market -- we interviewed a few agents before deciding to work with you.
From the beginning, you provided us with accurate information about the current real estate market, gave us solid advice on pricing the property, and shared the marketing plan that you would use to sell the home. The result -- just one month after listing with you we had an acceptable offer at terms that met our needs. Throughout the transaction you remained in contact with us, so that we always knew what was going on . . . especially important since we had already moved out of state.
It was a pleasure working with you, and we would be happy to recommend your services to anyone thinking of selling a home in the Capital District. Thank you again.
Mary Beth -- What a joy it was to work with a realtor like you! You were professional, knowledgeable, responsive and human. Most importantly, I believe, you provided an accurate market assessment that priced the house competitively and fairly. My home had previously been on the market with a different agency for a full 6 months without a single offer. You brought me an offer within the first 5 days that the house was on the market, and a solid offer leading to a contract within 17 days of listing.
You delivered the services you said you would and made me a happy seller. I thank you and certainly recommend you as a well qualified, competent and very personable realtor to anyone selling homes in this area.
I am writing this letter to express our sincere appreciation for all of your assistance in the sale of our home and the purchase of our new home which we both just love! As you know, our family has turned to you for assistance with real estate transactions for a number of years and we have always been extremely satisfied.
The experience of buying and selling a house can be very overwhelming. Throughout, your professionalism, expertise and attention to detail were very reassuring. There were many times that I noticed the service you provide far exceeded that of the average real estate agent. You left nothing to chance and were there every step of the way. I also noted that you have a special ability to connect with not only your client, but also with the other clients and professionals -- which certainly helps keep communications open in a transaction!
All the best to you, always!

I owned a double-wide home in Jackson, NY, that I decided to put up for sale. Mary Beth interviewed for the job and, based on our discussion, I decided to hire her. She gave me good advice about what I needed to do to the house to make it more attractive to buyers, and was also very honest about pricing and about what was going on in the local real estate market.
Throughout the time the home was on the market, she kept in touch with me, and followed up on all showings to get feedback from the buyers and their agents. In addition, she showed the home a number of times herself, because she received calls from buyers thanks to her continued marketing.
When we did receive an offer, Mary Beth reviewed the pluses and minuses of the contract with me, and gave me an update on what other homes had sold recently. We negotiated and got to a price and terms that were acceptable. Mary Beth monitored the sale every step of the way.
The sale closed successfully, and – while many of the homes that were already on the market when I put my home up for sale are still up for sale – I’ve been able to move on. I’m very pleased and would recommend her services to anyone.
