My wife and I found our-selves in a must move situation and time was of the essence. We both had agents we had previously used, but when we needed them, they were nowhere to be found. My wife just happened to walk into an open house that Mary Ellen was showing. My wife immediately fell in love with the house and was determined to get it. Our initial offer was rejected because of contingencies on a property we needed to sell. Not even being our official agent at that time, Mary Ellen began giving us options and offering to help. Did I mention she was not even our agent at this point? My wife and I quickly fell in love with Mary Ellen because of her honest, upfront, client first approach. We made Mary Ellen our agent and she swiftly not only got us under contract with the house my wife fell in love with but, she also listed our other property and had it sold before a sign could even be placed in the yard. Mary Ellen worked tirelessly to make sure not only that both sales closed but, that they closed on the same day. We cannot say enough about Mary Ellen and her personal approach to her clients. We never felt like a number or a dollar sign to her!

I would like to take this opportunity to say that Mary Ellen is one of the hardest working Realtors I know. When we were searching for a home in Asheville, NC, She went out of her way to help us find a realtor. Although, she could not work with us personally, she took the time to connect us with a great realtor. She has a reliable and knowledge referral network. She can help you with relocation across the United States. You will be pleased with her resourcefulness and representation.
