  • Mary was excellent in helping us navigate through the new TRID policies when we bought our home. She is patient, professional and cares about her clients. I would recommend her to any of my friends.  Dec. 4, 2015

  • Mary DeRose is the realtor I used recently for downsizing from a townhouse to a two-bedroom condominium. During the fall of 2014, I had expressed to her an interest in downsizing. Mary took the time to help me decide what I really wanted in a new living arrangement. She found me a condo where both of us felt I would be comfortable. She became my advocate in the purchase process and arranged everything. As to selling my townhouse, Mary made several recommendations as to how best to set up my townhouse to look its best. I followed all of her suggestions. The photographer she used took fabulous pictures (once they saw these photos, a number of my friends asked me why I would want to sell such a beautiful house). The house sold within a day, and at a the price both Mary and I believed was realistic. She took care of all of the arrangements for the sale so that part of the transaction was also very simple for me. Mary knows what she is doing. She has been in this business for a number of years and has the contacts to ease any problems that may pop up. She was always available when I had questions and she kept me in the loop the entire time. I would highly recommend Mary if you are planning to either sell your home or purchase a home. I consider her as a top-notch realtor. Aug. 12, 2015

  • It was a great pleasure to work with Mary. She is very knowledgeable about the local market and knew exactly what was needed to get my Mom’s house on the market and sold quickly for a fair price. Her network of handymen did a wonderful job of preping the house for showings, at very reasonable prices. Mary had potential buyers in quickly and the house sold, for our asking price, within 60 days. She also did a great job of walking us through all the necessary paperwork and quickly communicated any important information. I highly recommend Mary. July 30, 2015

  • Mary was very easy to work with. Her response was immediate and professional. Her demeanor was very comforting and she listens very well to all concerns. She isn’t shy to make suggestions that will increase value and/or speed up a potential sale. She figured out exactly what I was looking for and delivered a buyer quickly. July 6, 2015

  •  I found Mary to be not only pleasant and professional, but also very kind, caring and considerate. We contracted with Mary to sell my mother’s house. Mom had passed away early in December of 2014. My sister and I are both out of towners, so the task of selling Mom’s house turned out to be a bit more complex than either of us anticipated. Mary was simply wonderful – she knew Mom’s neighborhood intamately, had an excellent understanding of the local market, and was able to recommend quality contractors to take care of all the little things that needed to be attended to in order to sell Mom’s house. Mary also went a little beyond what I would normally expect from a realtor, she truly took a personal interest in making sure Mom’s property was presented in a manner that my mother would have approved of. That extra effort to ask about features were important to Mom, and to highlight many of those features made what could have been a very emotional sales transaction a lot less stressful. Our family is deeply indebted to Mary for handling this particular transaction with so much personal attention. I would recommend Mary’s services to anyone who is looking to either buy or sell, and I am happy to say I have gained a new friend as the result of this business relationship. July 1, 2015

  • Mary was a huge help in finding a house that met my needs. She is an expert in the Potomac Rockville area and was attentive to every detail. She was a real asset to me in the process of finding a home. I would highly recommend her. April 30, 2015

  • My fiance Chelsea and I were so fortunate to be referred to Mary by a colleague of ours.

    She went above and beyond anything we could have hoped for in our Realtor. Mary was very attentive, learned what was important to us quickly, and focused her search based on those needs.

    We had a rather lengthy negotiation process, and without Mary advocating, as well as advising against certain suggestions from myself, we would not have the property we do today. Mary was always honest with us, even when delivering news we didn’t want to hear, while having our best interest at heart.

    Mary picked up on things within the property we never would have noticed and made certain those issues were addressed. She knew the area, and was tremendous when it came to diagnosing issues in the property itself. You can tell Mary’s level of expertise is beyond reproach.

    I speak for my fiance as well when I say we can’t thank Mary enough. She helped us realize a goal that we weren’t sure we would ever achieve in this area. It should go without saying that we would recommend Mary to anyone in the market. She is, quite simply, a terrific real-estate agent, and she has helped Chelsea’ s and my dream of owning a home come true. Thank you, Mary. – March 13, 2015

  • Mary priced our house perfectly to sell. She recommended a few tweeks that we did to the home and due to her recommendations the house ended up looking awesome. Her marketing skills are phenomenal – when we viewed the images of our house on her website we almost didn’t want to move (not exaggerating). We had an amazingly high number of viewings and the house went quicker than we ever imagined possible an for more money than we ever imagined getting. I recommend anyone buying or selling a home use Mary DeRose- she is extremely professional, witty, responsive, friendly, and easy to communicate with. I cannot say enough wonderful things about this realtor.  – Jun 11, 2014

  • Mary was wonderful!!!! She was very knowledgeable and helped us a great deal. She was a terrific advocate for us. I will, and have already, recommended her to friends and colleagues.- Sep 7, 2013

  • Mary redefined to me what it meant to be a great real estate agent. She worked tirelessly (and I can’t emphasize that enough) to help my wife and I both sell and buy. She was always available to talk, email or txt about what ever questions we had. Home buying is a complicated and emotional process and Mary was happy to explain and re-explain all parts as well as talk us off the ledge when the stress level got high. I would highly recommend Mary to anyone looking for an agent. We love our new house and have Mary to thank for it. – Aug 5, 2013

  • I am the Executor of an Estate and used Mary to sell a townhouse that was part of the Estate. Based on her experience, she recommended a good selling price and the house was under contract just a few days after it went on the market. She dealt with a lot of issues that came up in the negotiations and the inspection report in a calm and efficient manner. I never felt like I was “out of the loop” or that Mary was not representing my best interests. Not only would I recommend her, I already have made one referral to her. – Feb 10, 2013

  • Mary worked with us to sell my father’s house after he passed. It was a difficult time for us and she guided us through every step of the process. Mary’s expertise shined through in appraising the property and ensuring it was priced appropriately. Her deep understanding of real estate, anticipation of buyer’s demands, and exceptional negotiating skills provided us a result that exceeded our expectation. I would not hesitate to recommend Mary to my family and friends. – Nov 10, 2012

  • Mary is one of the most trustworthy and honest people I have met in the realty industry. Throughout our time working together, she made me feel as though the sale of my house was the priority for her and her business, and acted with integrity every step of the way. She was very detailed with the information she provided about neighborhood comps and the current for sale market, and timely with her follow ups regarding interested buyers and potential contracts. I appreciated and trusted her sound professional advice when it came time to negotiate offers. Mary also helped me to find a great place, which included everything I was looking for, when it came time to move. She was on top of anything new that came on the market that she knew would interest me, and was in constant contact with potential sellers to alert them of my interest, making sure we put our best foot forward when it came time to making an offer. I would definitely recommend Mary for anyone looking to buy or sell a home, and look forward to working with her again in the future.  – Jun 6, 2012

  • Mary DeRose did a fabulous job selling my 97-year old mother’s two-bedroom condo in December 2011. Within three weeks of taking on the assignment, Mary had sold the apartment, getting a much higher than originally anticipated price. She took on the heavy responsibility of getting the apartment in prime selling condition. After just one open house, my mother was provided with a number of offers, and Mary assisted my mother in determining the best offer. Throughout the three weeks, Mary was available at all times for all members of my family. We were all kept “in the loop,” and Mary made the selling process very easy. I highly recommend using Mary to sell your home. She is a natural saleswoman and she will make every effort possible to get you the best price possible for your home.  – Mar 7, 2012
