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!
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.
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
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.
She and her team are AAA in my book.
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!
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.
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.
I offered 249,000 and my apprasial came in at 259,000. I was very pleased, great location and it was a smooth transaction.
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.
..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.
She was very prompt and respond quickly whatever the question I had for her. I could highly recommend her to anyone looking for a home to buy. Great experience working with Mary Jo!
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.
I highly recommend her services to anyone interested in rehab or investment properties.
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.
She is energetic and quick it respond to questions and comments.
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!
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.
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.
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.
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.
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 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.
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.
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!
She is very knowledgeable in all aspects of home searching for the right home for you. Kudos to Mary Jo.
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!!
Although we didn't make an offer, seeing the house helped us hone our search and find the property that worked for us.
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.
