Mary's most recent endorsements

I was originally referred to Mary three years ago with my first purchase at Carolina Beach, NC. The referring friend said, "I have the best real estate agent for you" and he sure was right. We found the property of our dreams that first morning of working with her and she helped put together a successful offer that same day. Since then I have done 2 more transactions with her and find her to be a consumate professional real estate agent, always looking out for the needs of her clients. I have referred several friends to Mary and I am confident that she will not disappoint them either. If you are looking for an agent who will work hard for you and go that extra measure of performance, Mary Kelly is who you want to contact. – Bill Lyons
Coming to the Raleigh area from out of state, the home finding search seemed daunting. With Mary’s knowledge and suggestions of areas to look (and we looked at a lot of houses) she helped us find our wonderful home in Holly Springs, a town of which we knew nothing in the beginning. The process was handled smoothly and efficiently by Mary and her assistant, Amanda, they are professionals in the best sense of the word. To say that Mary went the extra mile for us is an understatement, we say the extra hundred miles! Mary’s warm and fun personality make working with her a joy. – Sandra Joyce
Mary Kelly goes above and beyond! She was more than helpful with the entire process, very patient, effective, polite, kind and whatever i can say about her is simply not enough. I recommend her 150%!! – Maria Dunn
Mary Kelly is always on top of the details in a real estate transaction. I can't imagine any of her clients being subject to surprises. She knows the properties she deals with as if they were her own. But more than that, she treats customers like family. – Thomas Ganski
We start searching our home around late 2012, Mary is one of the real estate agents that replied first. We met with her the first time, she is always very passionate and knowledgeable and that is why we select her to be our agent. You will know the first impression when you want to put your future home to someone really is there to help you to make the right decision along the way. Of course, we all heard of looking for a perfect home is not easy and Mary makes it easier and she always did her research for each property. She did excellent job while showing us around and also she helps not only searching for home but also can reach out her business network for other financial services as well as finding the right lender. Thanks to her we find our perfect home in early 2013. I think we like most of Mary is how she enjoys her job and never tired of it. That is what her business ethic and character that we could trust with. We already recommended Mary to our friends and business associates and we know she did a great job for them too. Certainly we enjoy our time with Mary and she also becomes one of our family friends as well. Give her a try and you will be glad that you did! – Stephanie Wu
What can I say, working with Mary was a blessing for my husband and I. She is so personable, you can't help but to like her. Mary works for you, everything she does is to benefit you, she made sure that we understand everything that was going on. She took the time to care about us. I can't express how grateful we are to be going through our first home buying process, with this company. I will always tell people how great my experience was with Mary Kelly. – Dione Butler
We remain interested in NC as evidenced by our vacation residence in Asheville, but had hoped to land in the Triangle area more permanently. However, with Blake and his wife moving to Houston, we need to put that notion well on the back burner. You have been tremendous to work with and if/when plans change again, you will be the agent we will call. You are very professional and a lot of fun…. A great combination! Dale – Client Review
To Whom this May Concern: Mary Kelly is a hard working, totally involved agent. We only know Mary a short time and already we feel like she is apart of out family. We can rely on her as an agent and a friend. We know that she will do the right thing by us. I would recommend Mary to anyone looking for a real estate agent in North Carolina in the Raleigh and the surrounding areas. She is TOPS is our Mind!!! Does that answer your question! Barbara and Les Kalmus – Client Review
We both wanted to write you and tell you how much we appreciated your help and guidance through our process of buying our first home. We are so thankful that we had you to through this with! You have been so great at explaining everything to us and being patient as we went through the motions of looking at all of the various homes and how we could get caught up in changing the whole floor plan!:) We want to wish you all the best and hope and pray for the greatest outcome in all you do. We Love You! Joe and Rebecca Volpe – Client Review
Thanks Mary Kelly! We were looking for some pretty specific things and we really appreciated your patience. I don't know how many homes we looked at, but it was a lot! The home you found for us was so perfect for our family and we are so thankful. We are so thankful to be in the location we are and so close to the schools that we wanted. We really appreciate your diligence in getting everything we wanted. Thanks so much. – Terrell Dillon
Dear Mary, Larry and I are so thankful for the time and effort you gave us on our search for a new home! It was a pleasure meeting you and we are looking forward to seeing you and NC soon! Warmest Regards, Cindy and Larry – Client Review
Mary knew that timing was everything for us and she was hard at work on our move from AZ to NC before we even got here. The day we arrived, Mary pulled up to start showing us houses before we had even unpacked a bag. She even had local contacts in the mortgage lending industry that were able to get me a better loan than I had already been pre-approved for through a larger lender. Mary coordinated the home, well and septic inspections so that I never had to call anyone other than her. I know this is going to sound crazy, but on move in day she showed up and even started helping us unpack and move couches. Mary = southern hospitality:) – Jeff Simpson
Dear Mary, As we prepare to start a new year and reflect on the past one, we wanted to take a moment to again say thank you for your help in our relocation to Wake Forest, NC in May. From the pre-trip communication through the closing, your expertise and services were exceptional! As a retired Realtor with 36 years of experience, and having worked as a peer with hundreds of Realtors over those years, I can say with no hesitation that you rank in the top percentiles of knowledge and efficiency. Your ability to listen and understand the priorities that Dennis and I sought in a community as well as the type of home we desired helped us to sort through the inventory in the most efficient manner. The extra time and efforts involved in following through with inspections, financing and pre-closing details while we were back in Illinois was another genuine bonus! You and Amanda were always timely and capable in your responses to our many questions. And last, but certainly not least, your sparkling personality made the entire process not only easy....but FUN! The stresses of a move, whether required or voluntary, are many, and you helped to ease those from start to finish! Thank you again...and we wish you a Happy and Prosperous 2016! Sincerely, Dennis and Mary Beemer – Mary Kelly
To be honest, I don't know if this page would allow me enough characters to really say how amazing of a job that Mary has done for us! First and foremost, she is an amazing person, which made it only natural for her to be an amazing realtor. After a long and arduous process of searching for a home , she was HIGHLY recommended to us through a mutual friend. Mary was knowledgeable, prompt, professional, and friendly. She treated us not just like clients, but like family. All of our questions were answered, information, and feedback were returned to us in a prompt manner as well. Any questions we had, they were answered. Given the time frame that we had, she pulled of a miracle that only Mary Kelly and her awesome staff could pull off. Amanda was just as nice and courteous too. Mary did not let us make decisions that we were not necessarily comfortable with. She even referred me to other vendors for many of my home needs. I would recommend her no question and I honestly feel that she was a blessing. My wife and I have tons of faith in her skills. If you have the opportunity to work with her, and you are on the fence about it, then stop, find me on facebook or call me.. and I will personally tell you what a mistake you are making if you pass on this opportunity. :) Thank you for all you have done Mary and for making this an easy process! Love, Dante' & Janeen!! – Dante Morehead
