It has been such a pleasure to work with Mary Markou. From start to finish, the guidance and service we received have been exceptional. She was highly invested in finding us the perfect home. Mary spent extra time getting to know us, asked great questions and spent countless hours showing us homes (resales and new). Her expertise really came in handy when it came time to write up and negotiate contracts. She helped us get out of a contract and get into a better one. We are super appreciative of all the hard work Mary put in to making our process as seamless as possible. We are still in disbelief that we finally have our dream home! When the time comes to do it all again, we will definitely be calling Mary. Cannot recommend her enough! – Anthony & Linh Tran
Mary helped us sell our luxury acreage home in Gilbert. We were on a time crunch and gave her only 3 months to sell it, which we knew was a challenge for our price range. She exceeded our expectations. Our home sold in less than 4 weeks. Mary was present for all showings and she treated our home as her own, and got us our price! We would recommend Mary to anyone who is selling a luxury home
We live in Canada and were looking for condo in the greater Phoenix area as a vacation property. Friends of ours recommended Mary. We were initially apprehensive about making such a significant investment purchase without actually being there in person, but once we started working with Mary our fears were quickly alleviated. She was always professional and extremely knowledgeable about the market, but what really made us comfortable was how easy she made working with her remotely. We never felt uneasy about not being there in person to see the properties she wanted us to see as she provided us with real-time “virtual tours” as she walked through the properties herself. We also felt very comfortable in her representation of our best interests in negotiations. My husband and I would have no hesitation in recommending Mary to our friends if they decide to buy property in Arizona.
I have known Mary for the past 10 years. She has sold 2 homes for me. One of which was for my elderly mother. She made these sales go smoothly and was prompt to answer questions and deliver paperwork. Mary is very professional, accommodating and knowledgeable. I will continue to use her and refer her to family and friends.
About a year ago, we moved from Texas to Arizona. Before arriving in Mesa, Arizona, per our new home requirements, Mary had e-mailed to us details on several desired homes. After arriving here, due to skillful and professional planning by Mary, we were able to select our dream home in only three days. She is very thorough in working remotely with out-of-state clients, providing services like obtaining a mortgage from local source, new home inspection, etc. Mary is very pleasant and frindly and is an extremely knowledgable professional in all aspects of real estate. We highly recommend her.
I had to move from Rockford, IL due to health issues with arthritis and had to give a 60 day notice to my landlord so I was on a time crunch to drive 1800 miles to Arizona, find a home in 3 days, and return to Rockford. Fortunately, I found Mary Markou on the internet and let her know the pressure I was under and that I only had 3 days to buy a home. I arrived on a Saturday with my 2 small dogs and met with Mary on Sunday, Monday and Tuesday to look at the homes she had lined up to view. Would you believe the last home she showed me was exactly what I was looking for, fully furnished plus all appliances, a solar system on the roof and backing up to a large greenbelt. I am a happy camper and Mary is terrific at follow up on any detail concerning buying a home. I would refer her to anyone who is looking for a home in the Phoenix area.
A friend of ours had used Mary Markou in the purchase of their home and recommended her services. We were lucky to find her. She immediately made herself available to us and guided us through our home purchase from beginning to end. She asked all the right questions, listening to our list of needs and wants to help us find the perfect home for us. We were impressed with her knowledge of the real estate market, past performance and recent trends. She gave us all the information we needed to make an informed decision in our home purchase. We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her services to anyone wishing to sell or buy.
I have been friends with Mary Markou for several years. When it came time to purchase a home, it was a no brainer to acquire Mary as our relator. She was accommodating to our schedules and needs and showed us several houses until we found our perfect fit. She wad always professional and offered sound advice when it was much needed. Thank you, Mary, for helping us find out dream home.
I have always been told not to do business with friends, but Mary Markou has been the exception to every warning I ever received! We’ve known Mary and her husband for many years and she’s always been professional, knowledgeable and concerned with finding a result that pleased her customers. THIS time, it was me who needed all Mary brought to the table! After a pretty extensive home search on our own, we contacted Mary who sent us to a wonderful lender. She spent hours with us discussing what we wanted and what we needed to do to get it and showed us homes not only in our price range but in the exact location we wanted. After one house falling through, we found the PERFECT home for our family and Mary lead the way! We found a new build and had our fair share of obstacles, but Mary stayed positive, found solutions to all the issues we had to hurdle even the builder made us feel were lost cause. In the end, she kept me positive and focused on the end result – owning our first home and boy, did she deliver! I can’t believe it! Not only has Mary crushed all the advice of business and friendship, I think she’s proven her friendship comes as part and parcel WITH her business. We highly recommend Mary to anyone who needs a Realtor! If you want years of experience, knowledge of the Valley and surrounding area markets, combined with someone who actually CARES and has a way of adding a professional-based personal relationship to find your perfect home, contact Mary Markou! You won’t be disappointed and you may just gain a great friend along the way!
We engaged Mary to sell our house at Ironwood Vistas, Chandler, and have been highly satisfied with the first-class service she has provided. She was very well-informed about market conditions in the area, and produced an excellent video/photograph suite to support the Listing. We live in England and British Columbia, but Mary has readily coped with potential problems arising from the time differences & geography: she has expertly coordinated all aspects of the sale (including matters arising from the buyers’ inspection) and has kept us very well-informed throughout. Moreover, she has proved a very successful negotiator, and has quickly secured a buyer for us at a mutually-acceptable price. In addition to being an excellent realtor, she is also a very nice person, & we recommend her very highly.
I work with a lender and had a variety of realtors to choose from when it came to purchasing our first home. I chose Mary and I am so glad I did! I had seen what a professional Mary was from the lending side of the transaction, but had no idea the level of service I would receive from her as my agent. Mary was very patient with us as we navigated through the process narrowing down our likes/dislikes, wants/needs, etc. She didn’t think twice about showing us a home at night in the mud and rain…and we are so glad she did, as that ended up being the home we purchased! I would highly recommend Mary to any of my friends and family in need of purchasing or selling a home. She truly is an advocate for her clients and always has their best interests in mind.
Mary went above and beyond to help me find the house that was right for me. This was not easy and we looked at a lot of houses and in many different areas around Phoenix. She always made time to help me look at houses whenever it was most convenient for me, always got back with me very quickly whenever I contacted her, and was always very courteous and professional. Mary also is very knowledgeable about the whole process. I was extremely grateful for her knowledge and honesty because this was my first time buying on my own.
We’ve worked with several real estate agents thorough the years but found Mary Markou to be most remarkable. She is very professional and has a friendly, engaging personality, attributes that would appeal to both buyer and seller. We raised our family in a house we built 36 years ago, and finally decided to downsize. There were numerous logistical issues to be resolved, not to mention the psychological angst involved in making such a big move. Mary was very perceptive and attentive to our needs. She knew what it would take to sell the house and walked us through it every step of the way. The house sold in about a month, and we couldn’t be more pleased with the entire process
What a pleasure Mary Markou is to work with. Very knowledgeable, always dressed professionally, easy trust established. In addition Mary knows her directions like a GPS. We got a bit turned around in a neighborhood once and it was Mary that found the house we were looking for, and got us back out without a lot of drama. The one item I always kidded Mary about was that she worked too hard. The lady never stops, although this is a positive attribute from a customer perspective. I would highly recommend Mary for any of your real-estate needs. In summary; smart, hard worker, very professional, friendly, knowledgeable, and trustworthy.
I moved to Arizona from Wisconsin a couple of years ago and have finally decided to purchase my own home. With great luck I found Mary!! Being new to the area the process felt very overwhelming until I met Mary. She is such a warm and friendly person and she made this experience easy and fun. With her amazing experience, Mary helped guide me through each step making sure all my documents were complete and on time. I cannot recommend Mary high enough!! She helped me find a nice comfortable place that makes me feel “at home” here in Arizona. Thank you for this opportunity.
I am moving from Chicago to Arizona and Mary has been so helpful and wonderful to work with. She has gone above and beyond the call of duty and has even been on site for me when I could not physically be at the house for walk throughs and I trust her 100% to be my eyes and ears during the process. Mary has outstanding customer service and follow up. I would highly recommend Mary without hesitation to anyone looking for a great agent!
Mary exceeded our expectations in every category. Mary is an amazing realtor and we highly recommend. Most realtors work really hard until you sign the contract, and then the service drops off. Not with Mary! She worked very hard from start to finished and was quick to respond to all our inquiries. We followed Mary’s advice for pricing and staging. She uses a professional photographer and our listing was very impressive. Even though she priced the home $10,000 below what we thought, in two weeks we had a bidding war. We sold for $5,000 above our price. We had a wonderful experience from start to finish. We are truly amazed by Mary’s work ethic, professional expertise, and how she took care of every detail. We are confident to say that you will not do better than Mary as your realtor!
Mary was just great to work with, she really knows the Chandler area and helped us find our dream house! Mary exceeded our expectations and we would highly recommend her!
I really enjoyed working with Mary Markou to find my perfect retirement home this year. She learned and understood my housing and lifestyle preferences then showed me many homes which met my requirements to find the perfect house and area for me. Mary stayed with me throughout the buying process and always maintain a positive attitude and experience for me even when I changed my mind on one house. I would highly recommend Mary for anyone looking for an agent who will understand you and your family’s needs for a home. Mary never pressured me into rushing into a decision and always made sure my best interests was taken care of. Thanks Mary for a wonderful experience.
Mary did a tremendous job in guiding us through all the communities and showing us the options available, focusing on our specific needs and wants. Being new to the area, Mary took the time and had the patience to allow us the opportunity to take in all that the Mesa, Gilbert, Chandler and Queen Creek communities had to offer. Mary’s experience & professionalism made my wife and I feel very comfortable in working with her and she was able to answer all of our questions to our satisfaction. My wife and I highly recommend Mary to anyone interested in finding a home in Arizona, especially to people that are new to the area.
Mary helped me sell my house during the low period of the market crash in 2011. She made great suggestions for improvements that wouldn’t cost a lot but would help the presentation of the property. She thought of things that I would have never come up with myself. We got our asking price, which was a rare thing for sellers that year! Also, her availability was amazing. There was never a time that I couldn’t reach her.
Mary worked with us tirelessly to find us just the right home for our family–and we had quite a list of criteria for her to check off—From previewing endless properties for us and lining up multiple viewings on our short trips out there to make the best use of our time (we were searching in AZ from the Chicago area), to keeping us connected via flexmls weekly so we wouldn’t miss an opportunity when new things came on the market. You won’t find a more dedicated broker who will get to know your family and your desires and make it happen.
Mary helped me to buy 3 homes and sell 2 homes over the past 4 years. She would take me to see homes at my convenience and would answer my calls even though it was late. I found her not only to be a good agent but good friend also. She is the best!
Very well organized,considerate and prompt in response, understand the value of clients and property she found the best deal for us in Gilbert,Az she was always willing to take in area with her own vehicle .was able to negotiate with right attitude and value of property.
Mary was our realtor when we purchased our new home 7 years ago. She is extremely knowledgeable about current market conditions and very professional. I would be happy to have her represent me and my wife on our next purchase or sale.
Mary Markou is an extremely professional and action driven agent. We had a very short time to find our home in AZ. A job was relocating us to the area from NC. She was very accommodating, organized, and knowledgeable about the Phoenix area. In 3 days we found our dream home and were able to close in less than a month. I would highly recommend Mary if you are looking in the Phoenix area.
I highly recommend Mary Markou to anyone looking to buy a home in AZ. She took wonderful care of my family, listening to all of our needs and wants when looking for a new home and found us our dream home! She was very professional and knowledge. She is the BEST!!!
Mary was very helpful with several real estate transactions in the last year. She was very professional and was very knowledgeable, guiding us through each transaction successfully. She took care of the stress for us.
My experience with Mary Markou, was phenomenal. I bought my first home with her last year and when I needed to move to Denver CO last April she listed and sold my house. The pictures, advertising, and communication were absolutely amazing. I was floored by how many showings were scheduled in the first weekend. Whenever I called Mary with a question, she responded immediately. I have recommended her to everyone who will listen. My only regret is that I had to relocate to Denver and won’t be able to use her again in the future!
My husband and I worked with Mary to purchase our first home. She made us feel very comfortable to ask all kinds of questions (which we did). She walked us through all the processes and referred us to a great lender. She was with us every step of the way! If we ever sell, we will work with Mary again.
