“There is a lot to do before a seller puts a home on the market, a long process with many hard decisions to make. This process becomes even more difficult when you live far away from the home that needs to be sold. Mary Pope-Handy spent many months helping me with the sale of a family home over 150 miles from my current residence. Her guidance, her attention to detail and her hands on approach was invaluable to what ended up being a very successful sale. I highly recommend Mary.”

Los Gatos home seller

“We were lucky enough to find Mary’s website years ago when we first moved into our apartment in Los Gatos. We benefitted from the insight she had about the area and when it came time for us to look for our own home we reached out. It was the best move we could have made. Mary and her daughter Clair were incredibly attentive, providing information and assistance before we knew we needed it. Their expertise specific to South Bay real estate (neighborhood details, brokers, processes, trends) can’t be understated.

“The circumspect insights they offered helped us navigate the purchase of our home in a way that my partner and I couldn’t have anticipated. They catered to our work-at-night schedule, never made us feel an ounce of pressure, and felt like both advocates and friends. Throughout the whole process Mary and Clair were considerate of our needs and circumstances. I would recommend their services to anyone with great enthusiasm and zero reservations.”
