We worked with Mary Licata to purchase our new home and she exceeded our expectations. Mary made the purchase seamless and joyful. We had the best possible experience with her. Mary is well prepared, knowledgeable, hard-working, dedicated to her craft and commitment to excellence.

Once we found the home we ultimately wanted to purchase, Mary held our hand through the entire purchase process and masterfully helped us craft our winning bid. Mary was dedicated to making sure we were safe and comfortable in our new home from start to finish. We are so glad that we were able to partner with Mary and cannot recommend her highly enough! Mary expertly navigated us through every step, enabling us to find exactly what we were looking for, staying within our budget, and helping us to navigate and finalize the closing. She was always available and responsive to our needs whenever we needed to talk and flexible was meeting us, especially since we were relocating from Connecticut to New Jersey. Mary was always several steps ahead of us, anticipating what our next question might be and supplied us with depth of research expeditiously. In short, she was always on our side working to make our house purchase as simple and successful as possible.

If you are looking for a realtor who is endlessly patient, honest, dedicated, detailed, who cares about her relationships with her clients, then choose Mary. She was always up front in disclosing the pros and potential cons of particular properties and explaining it thoroughly and clearly. It’s indicative of her genuine interest in helping guide the client in the right direction and not in just making a quick sale. She has great follow through and is timely and sincere. Mary’s warm personality and thoughtful approach put us at ease, always. She is easy to talk with and was genuinely interested in helping us find the right home for our family. I can truly say that Mary was not just our realtor, but a friend. Others would be very wise to contact Mary. I promise, you won’t be disappointed. Choosing Mary as our realtor was one of the best decisions we ever made.

My experience with Mary was extremely satisfactory. She was very professional, kept me in the loop at all times, and was very receptive to input on all matters. I would recommend her to any buyer or seller whether it was their first buying/listing experience or if they had gone through the process many times. All in all, a top notch professional.

Mary helped us sell our house in a difficult market. Real estate transactions and moving are so stressful and Mary was very patient in answering all our questions and walking us through every step of the process. She provided sound advice based on her extensive experience and knowledge of the market. She always listened to us and was always very professional. I highly recommend working with Mary as your agent.

We were so fortunate to have Mary as our selling Realtor! Mary offers a high degree of industry knowledge, area knowledge, experience, dedication, and compassion. She was our biggest champion throughout and always willingly went beyond to make sure our house was sold on our terms and everything was done right. We were always on the same page and were unified as a team. A legendary experience!

I consider myself so lucky to have been introduced to Mary Licata prior to listing my house for sale. Mary is an extremely knowledgeable realtor. She keeps abreast of the housing industry, is willing to listen to and act upon suggestions, and always offers her opinion gracefully. She responded quickly, and was a tough negotiator. Additionally, her affiliation with Turpin Realtors brought in what seemed to be a never-ending parade of serious, qualified buyers. Mary is so pleasant, with a wonderful sense of humor. In a difficult market, under difficult restrictions, Mary sold my house. List with her, you will not be sorry.
