Mary Jo Quay - Testimonials

Tell Us Your Story

As first time rental home buyers, Mary Jo was great - very professional and quick to respond.

We were clueless and asked a lot of questions, to which Mary Jo replied with expertise, patience and understanding. We managed to pull together a purchase in under a month's time from start to finish and are very happy with the result. We highly recommend Mary Jo for your real estate needs!


Mary Jo has now helped us buy and sell a home.

Both experiences were superb. She responds quickly and is willing to help you in any way she can, even finding a plumber for me when I had issued the day of the walkthrough! I always felt taken care of by Mary Jo and would be very confident referring her to others.


During my home shopping moment, I was so lucky to meet Mary Jo Quay, who knows very well what she was doing.

I got answers to all my questions with good satisfaction. I did not know anything about shopping for a house. She has open eyes with all abilities to work with diversities people. Another aspect that I like so much is that he is bilingual, able to speak little French with me. I enjoy being into my house now, and will never forget her. I will recommend her to all people who have plans to have a house


Mary Jo has been with us every step of the way in selling and buying.

I appreciate her responsiveness and her down to earth style. I have heard that she is quite a tiger in times of negotiations which I hope we don't need, but am glad the skill is there if we do! Mary Jo is very knowledgeable about the real estate market and the selling/buying process. Every step has been comfortable with Mary Jo.


Mary Jo was AWESOME to work with, she was very helpful in getting me through the sometimes stressful process and very knowledgeable in things to look for and consider.

She and her team are AAA in my book.


Mary Jo was very friendly!

She answered and explained with detail all my questions. She helped my family and I find the perfect home. She was also great with my jumpy kids!


Mary Jo was a great choice for my fiancé and me in searching for our first home.

She took time with us at our first open house and walked us through a lot of basics. She also introduced us to a lot of great websites for first time home buyers and responded very promptly to all calls and emails. We will recommend Mary Jo to all of our friends who are looking to purchase a home.


Even before we started looking into properties, we did a thorough research of what all area in the twin cities we could potentially target keeping in mind easy accessibility to downtown, vicinity of good schools, history of crime rate in the neighbourhood and most importantly what style of house we look forward with what all amenities.

Because of being a first time home buyer, our analysis was very theoretical and no doubt far away from reality. Someone had to hold our hand and guide us to see the real picture with a lot of patience and inherent empathy. Our real estate agent Mary Jo, who I have no doubt is one of the aces in Minnesota Real Estate Team of RE/MAX, with all her experience did the exact same thing. We were very much reluctant to compromise on the style of property we want, but she showed us the bigger picture in the realm of what our budget can buy us as an effective starter house. I am sure we made her go through a lot of properties that she right away knew is not suitable for us but she showed a great deal of patience to ensure that we be very sure and learn in the process why we are choosing something and why we are rejecting something. The integrity that Mary Jo works with might be her own forte but somewhere I believe is part of the strategy of the whole team which she belongs to. Moreover, still, if we reach her out asking some question, we always get an invaluable two cents in the matter which in turn help us a great deal. If I am asked about a realtor I no doubt would highly recommend getting in touch with Mary Jo or the whoever she recommends from her team sharing the same values in customer delight.


Mary Jo, Has 20 plus years of experience and is great at negotiations.

I offered 249,000 and my apprasial came in at 259,000. I was very pleased, great location and it was a smooth transaction.

It took us 7 months to secure our home due to the crazy market.

Mary Jo was always positive and encouraging. She learned what we wanted and always gave her honest opinion. She was really hands-on and showed us at least 50 homes with no hesitation and was with us every step of the way. Highly recommend.


Mary Jo worked with me despite my time line.

..I'm due the end of March and had school during the fall. She was aware of my low budget and lower quality of houses I wanted to see. She didn't judge, or make comments. She quickly figured out what I wanted and gave me some houses to look at. She is a bulldog and not Minnesota nice which is a breath of fresh air because I relied on her honesty and integrity. I was not happy because I had to pay more money due to multiple bids, but I put my trust in her and overall I purchased a house I will be happy in with my family. I would use her again should I need to buy or sell and I would recommend her to others who are looking for an agent.

Bought a Townhome in Plymouth.

Working with Mary Jo was a very good experience especially when being a first-time homeowner. She responded to all our queries very patiently. She was very accommodating in showing the listings. She is very knowledgeable. Would recommend her to another known person as well.


Mary Jo patiently led us through the process of purchasing an investment property, negotiating on our behalf, making recommendations, and always being available.

I highly recommend her services to anyone interested in rehab or investment properties.


Mary Jo was a pleasure to work with and had more than enough patience to take us through way more homes than necessary.

When we finally did find the right place, she continued working hard and pushing things along to get us an on-time closing. We certainly enjoyed working with her and would again.


I have used Mary Jo for two real estate deals so far and I plan on using her for more.

She is energetic and quick it respond to questions and comments.

Mary Jo helped us in 2015 when we purchased our first home.

We loved her so much that when it came time to sell our home and purchase a new, bigger home in 2019 she was the obvious choice! We couldn't recommend her more. She was knowledgeable, honest, and was great with our kiddos while we were looking at properties. She put effort into pre-marketing our home and hiring a fabulous photographer for the listing. She even negotiated a fabulous deal on our new home. My family couldn't be happier with the end result!

Mary Jo was recommended by another friend.

Once I contacted her she moved quickly. I appreciated her expertise. There was a specific incident where she walked in the house, smelled and turned around, and marched out stating that this was not the place: she was completely correct, as the house was totally unsuitable in many respects. She will help you find your home - she helped me find mine.


Mary Jo was fun and knowledgeable at every point in our home search and purchase.

She put up with our picky and demanding personalities like it was nothing and showered our toddler with attention. She entertained our requests to see houses multiple times before making a decision and drove all over the Twin Cities for our search. She feels like part of our family now, and I would recommend her to anyone I know who is looking for a real estate agent.

Mary Jo has been my realtor since I started my real estate investment company in 2011 and I have never been disappointed in the service she has provided me.

Whenever I have issues, either buying or selling a house, I call Mary Jo and she promptly provides the expertise necessary to resolve the issues. I would highly recommend Mary Jo and the entire Minnesota Real Estate Team to anyone that is looking to either buy or sell a house.


We found a house we wanted to see and put in a request for a realtor to show us the house on trulia.

com. Within minutes, Mary Jo was on the phone with us ready to show the very next day. She has excellent communication. She showed us the house and guided us in a way that we were able to put our feelings aside and see the pros and cons of this particular house. She was extremely knowledgeable about renovations in the home and what we should ask of the seller. We had seen other houses with other realtors but when we met Mary Jo, we knew we were talking to a true professional. She is very easy to talk to and doesn't pressure at all. Not only did she show us the house, but she also guided us to a knowledgable financing team. They all worked diligently to make sure our interests were met in a timely manner. When we had questions at 3 am, they would be answered by morning. We have full confidence in her that things get done quickly. Mary Jo was indeed God-sent. She is the best realtor we know. Not only did we meet our future realtor, but we also met a good friend in Mary Jo. We absolutely love her.


My wife and I had the best experiecnce with Mary Jo.

She is extremely knowledgeable, professional, and reliable. I would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell a house. She knows the "pulse" of the Twin Cities real estate market and would use her again.

We couldn't be happier with our selling experience with Mary Jo Quay and The Minnesota Real Estate Team.

We were faced with the daunting task of selling our father's home of 50 years. We had interviewed several real estate agents and had been left feeling overwhelmed and unsure of what we needed to do. Mary Jo came met us at the house and walked through every room and respected the fact that the house holds many memories. She then took the time to get to know us and what we were really wanting to accomplish with the house. She gave us professional opinions and suggestions that not only improved the cosmetic look of the house but boosted the value of it also. The open house went well and she found the perfect buyer for the home in a short amount of time. The few "bumps" at closing were handled in a professional manner. We could not recommend a better Real Estate Agent or Team.


I've worked with Mary twice now.

Both times I've extremely pleased with her ability to cut out my emotion and make sense of the situation so I'm really getting the best value for what I was looking for. I've worked with other real estate agents and Mary will always be my first choice as she's intuitive to her client’s needs, very straight forward and MAKES things happen. One transaction was a short sale and the other conventional. It doesn't hurt that she is a very personable lady with a sense of humour and oodles of knowledge.


As a first time home buyer, Mary Jo was the picture perfect agent for us.

She has a passion for her career and knows the in's and out's of the industry. She never pushed us one way or another but she led us to make a great decision with our home purchase. Even after seeing what seemed like a million houses, she was still happy to show us the next one. She was great to have battling in our corner when needed. From day one, she was open and honest, very approachable, and always willing to answer any questions at anytime and with fast responses. I confidently recommend Mary Jo to anyone in need of an agent!


I can't say enough about the wonderful experience I had working with Mary Jo.

She is very knowledgeable in all aspects of home searching for the right home for you. Kudos to Mary Jo.


After debating renting versus buying, my coworker finally convinced me to just meet with Mary Jo and see what my options were.

Mary Jo had helped him buy several homes in the twin cities and he was sure we'd get along great. Mary Jo was not only professional, but she was also fun to work with and has a very bubbly personality. When a townhome fitting my criteria came on the market she was able to schedule a showing the same day, which was great because the market was HOT. I was nervous to take the plunge and put in an offer but Mary Jo calmed my nerves and walked me through the process effortlessly. Her professionalism and reputable reputation played a heavy role when the seller received multiple offers. My offer was accepted, she helped me through the remaining steps and closed on the house seamlessly!!


Mary Jo went the extra mile to allow us to view an excellent property before it was listed this spring with our realtor.

Although we didn't make an offer, seeing the house helped us hone our search and find the property that worked for us.


Mary Jo was a wonderful realtor to work with.

I went into the house buying process as a first-time buyer without knowing what I was looking for, and after showing me what felt like a million houses, she had figured out my likes and dislikes and fine-tuned the house search to show me things I would love. She answered all of my questions respectfully, even though I must have asked her each question multiple times. She was incredibly patient with me during the house search, and we were lucky enough to put in an offer for the perfect place for my husband and I.
