My Clients Say

  • I’ve worked with Mary DeRose several times, buying and selling my homes. I recently decided to sell my condo in Leisure World (which she helped me buy seven years ago). She knew exactly what needed to be done to show my home to its best advantage. I followed her directions as I trusted her implicitly. My home sold in one day for more than its asking price, and I believe it was solely due to Mary’s expertise. I highly recommend Mary. She’s marvelous! April 2022

  • Mary is a skilled professional and knows her job inside and out. I was selling my family’s childhood home and she brought the perfect mix of compassion, professionalism and excitement to make the sale an easy transaction, no matter how neurotic her seller was! I highly recommend Mary DeRose if you are in the market for an agent who is brilliant at what she does. You won’t be disappointed!! Oct. 12, 2021

  • Mary was outstanding at helping us sort through the many options when establishing sale price and marketing strategy. Her knowledge of the marketplace and climate was very evident. She made a very workable recommendation that yielded top dollar. She is all business with a highly professional approach while also providing a warm and friendly manner. She was very responsive and answered all of our questions in a precise and concise way. Working with Mary was a wonderful experience and we were extremely pleased with the process and outcome.

  • Mary did an amazing job helping me purchase my first home. Going through the home buying process during COVID was quite an experience but Mary helped me remain optimistic every step of the way. She is a pro! She helped me research and really determine what types of factors were important to me, and which things I could live without. Mary always gave me a dose of reality about other comps and why the market is the way it is right now. She has amazing customer service and worked hard on my behalf with third parties involved in the process when they were slow to respond or didn’t provide a sufficient response. Mary will do everything possible to advocate on your behalf, which is such a comforting feeling when parts of the process feel overwhelming or challenging. A great example of this was the pre-loan qualification process and then the final portion to have all my ducks in a row right before my closing date. She helped make sure I knew what documents would be expected and why the underwriters needed specific details. Mary isn’t an underwriter but she has so much experience she “gets it” and can convey the underlying rationale to her customers. I’ll put it this way – if you were a famous movie star, Mary is a top-notch agent representing YOU. She makes her customers feel like priority #1 all the time. She will answer any question or help with a problem day or night, around the clock, and always with a positive attitude. Mary is dedicated to her career and will not let you down. She knows the market and current trends, and networks with her peers and other vendors who work in the business. Her ability to combine all of these elements makes her a force to be reckoned with!! You won’t regret selecting Mary DeRose to help you buy your next home. ??Sept. 27, 2021

  • “Mary has so much knowledge in the home buying/selling experience. She’s patient and understanding, and also knows how to get all the tasks done with the other agents. She was always available for questions and information and she was dedicated to finding the right home for us.” May 2, 2020

    Mike C.

  •  “I loved working with Mary. She was great at communicating throughout the process and very responsive when I had questions or concerns. She is very knowledgeable about the local market and gave me solid advice about staging and pricing up-front, and throughout the various stages of offer negotiation and sale. She was unflappable but thoughtful, which really helped minimize my anxiety through what is just objectively a stressful process. It was a pleasure working with Mary and I highly recommend her.”

  • I highly recommend Mary DeRose. This is the second time I’ve worked with her and I chose her because of my positive first experience. I recently purchased a house in Rockville with Mary as my agent. I started my search in a rather broad area and narrowed it down. Although Mary knew I wouldn’t be happy in some of the areas I initially decided to look in, she was patient with me and showed me what was available. When I began to focus on the area I eventually bought in, she kept daily tabs on the new listings in my area and price range and helped me narrow down my choices based on the features most important to me. Mary also sold my house in Potomac. I prepared it for the market shortly after settling on the house in Rockville and moving in. Not only did Mary work with me to make sure my house would show as well as possible, but she was also practical and flexible about pricing advice. The house sold relatively quickly. Throughout the process, Mary was extremely professional and had good relationships with the other professionals–realtors, brokers, financial personnel, etc. I recommend Mary without hesitation.  Dec. 6, 2018

  • Mary was awesome and did an outstanding job selling our family member’s home long distance. She was instrumental in working through some difficulties with confidence and expertise. Nov. 15, 2018 

    Michelle C.

  • Mary was extremely professional and experienced. . What was particularly impressive was she was so proactive – she alerted us to issues and handled them before they became a problem. I also really liked the photos taken, especially the aerial photos of the house. Even though we were living out of  state she constantly in touch, informing us of the progress of the sale and what was going on. Mary is also a very pleasant person to work with. She more than earned her commission and I highly recommend her. Oct. 31, 2018 

    John Cowan

  • Mary worked with me from the time I had to make the decision to sell and downsize. Very knowledgeable in the real estate business. She made recommendations for things that would help the curb appeal as well as some for the interior appeal. She is personable and did not take offense to my “no”  answers. I have already recommended her to others. She also helped me find my new condo and understood how hard the decision was. Always had my back. Kept me involved in all transactions and went out of her way to make herself available when I just needed someone to talk to or panicked. It was a pleasure working with her. Thanks Mary  April and June 2018
