What Clients Say About Mary Sleeter
Mary was very helpful through the entire home buying process and was very knowledgeable with any questions we had. I would highly recommend Mary to anyone actively or casually looking on the market. Whether you are a family with children, looking to invest, or in the second stage of your life looking for a home after retiring- Mary is very flexible to your needs, warm and inviting. I highly recommend her for your next purchase!
Erick & Megan Guerrero
We have availed ourselves of Mary's positively superb service twice already, helping us to sell our homes in 2002 and 2017. Mary is the best!! Her depth of experience in the Loudoun County VA real estate market is unsurpassed, having lived and worked here her entire career and seen it grow and helped it develop from rural, agricultural farm country to be among the fastest growing and wealthiest counties in the country. Mary's experience is a capstone on her professional, responsive, and superior service guiding her clients in real estate assessment, estimating, pricing, financing, negotiating and being there at every step to not just get the deal done, but to ensure her clients get the best deal over-all; analyzing each offer and being able to discern the risks and potentials associated with each aspect of an offer, not just the bottom line, but each offer's subtle nuances that only an experienced agent like Mary would pick up on... Mary is patient, responsive, informative, friendly, considerate - the consummate professional - and a friend we would recommend to anyone looking to buy or sell (or rent) property in Loudoun County
Don Fraser & Bernadette Sullivan
Thank you for the professional way in which you handled the sale of our house & property. Your optimism and assurance during the difficult times kept us going.
This is the third sale you have handled for us and we high recommend you both to anyone who asks.
We also want to thank Joy for being helpful in answering our questions and just being Joy.
Jim & Kathy H.
I just wanted to thank you for showing me my house and to let you know that I absolutely LOVE living in this neighborhood. My one year anniversary will be next month. Hamilton Acres has a country like setting and is a quiet neighborhood. I have met some of the neighbors.
Thanks again for all your assistance and helping me find my dream home. I love it here!
As newcomers to Loudoun County, Mary Sleeter made our move from Arizona pleasant and uncomplicated. We were unable to visit the area twice and had to rely on our initial weekend trip. Mary spent as much time with us as we wanted, and when it came time to purchase a home, we were ready. We purchased our home by fax, with Mary's patience and professionalism, it all went smoothly. It was painless because of Mary. Whether your time is limited or you've got a year to make a decision, Mary makes it easy!!
Diane & Dan P.
Mary's pleasant personality and endless patience made house hunting a very pleasant experience. Being born and bred in this area, her knowledge of the land, owners and real estate is deep and expansive. She was able to advise even on financial matters and can recommend tried and trustworthy mortgage companies, lawyers, builders, accountants, schools, etc, in short, anything you need, including the best places to eat.
We were so impressed that David has made her the company realtor, and she now handles all the homes for new personnel joining the company.
David and Sheila Powell
From the start Mary & John came prepared and were very knowledgeable on the area. How to Market, their plan and their pricing. It was straight and to the point which is what I wanted. Expertise.
Their followup and management was exactly what was promised as was the constant feedback. Joy was a valuable and ever present to between ensuing good communication and unflagging follow up.
Very Nicely Done, I have advised my neighbors how impressed I was with their management and execution and would to others.
I first reached out to Mary almost a year ago as I knew we would be moving within 2 years. Most realtors wouldn't have continued to give me as much attention considering our move so far out but Mary treated as if each question and house I viewed was one that I may be able to use as getting closer to finding out which type of house I would want when we decided to buy. There was one house we discussed as the perfect house that was for sale and at a much higher price than I could afford. After a year on the market the owner decided to drop the price within my budget and Mary was first to get us in the deal, which is the home we just purchased. This house is a historic property with unique features and history and Mary was informed at not only the value but also the issues regarding the oil tank, well, and septic that unique to it. Mary's expertise helped to save us from many issues that would have been very costly. After Closing Mary and John continued to help us in locating contractors, generators and even with the selection of a tractor.
I have purchased and sold many homes and have had a a great experience with my other realtors. Mary and John are by far the best team that I have worked with. I would recommend them to anyone I know that would be interested in finding a realtor that really cares.
You are Always Great!!
Mary Sleeter was always available to show a listing at the drop of a hat. She was patient with our slow decision making. Once decided, Mary was professional and helpful in making a fair offer and making sure all requirements were met for closing. Thank you for everything!!
Beth S. & Bill H.
My experience of working with Mary & John was great, they said they'd "take care of everything" and they did! The closing went very smoothly and was painless thanks to Mary, John & Joy, your office was very efficient, prompt and very helpful. Your gifts of coffee mugs was helpful as the movers packed everything, even my only cup!!
I felt rushed out by the buyers and unable to clean properly but that's over and I' a the Cape to relax before returning to Florida. Thanks for everything ~ it was very good knowing you.
As always the Sleeter team has been wonderful. I have dealt with them buying & selling homes for years & it is their outstanding personal service that keeps me coming back they learn your desires & needs & do their best to find the home that fits you. They are great and do not make you feel pressured. I highly recommend the Sleeter team.
It is my pleasure to recommend Mary and John their team. I have sold a number of parcels from our farm property over the past 8 years. Mary has represented me exclusively in each transaction and I have been very pleased with her attentive, responsive and pleasant approach to me and to prospective purchasers. In each case, she helped to determine a fair price and a marketing strategy, which she executed as agreed. Dealing with your organization has been a pleasure both from a business and personal standpoint and I extend my recommendation of your organization without reservation.
Donna and I have re-located five times over the years... John you are the BEST..Through, knowledgeable, great communicator (when permitted) MARY...Donna loved your insights and advice (not that I didn't) and your daughter was fantastic with all of the follow up details. You made the experience fun... plus you have the patience of a saint! my only advice DON'T CHANGE!
P.S. For future customers: Don't believe John's age and ask him anything about Loudoun County... He IS Loudoun County!
Jon & Donna S.
Mary and John are two of the best people I've met in my life, their knowledge and work ethic is the best I've ever encountered. I was a first time home buyer and Mary and John went out of their way to always inform me about everything during the process prior to the purchase of my place. Krystina and I truly appreciated their services and couldn't have asked for anyone better. You guys are incredible.
Thank you for everything!
Over the years, Jackie and I have owned and sold several properties. When seeking a realtor, we looked for one that moved a lot of properties. Thats what attracted us to Mary and John Sleeter. They didnt disappoint us. They were very professional and went that extra mile for us. We have no reservations in recommending Mary and John to other prospective clients, and have done so.
John & Judy B.
Scot and I would like to thank you for the outstanding service you provided in helping us to sell our home. After having listed our house with another agent for seven months it was quite apparent that we were dealing with true professionals when we signed a listing agreement with you. Immediately it was obvious to us that we should have signed a listing agreement with Mary and John first. Your team knows how to sell a house! We will strongly recommend Mary and John to all who are looking to sell their home. Thank you!
Anne Marie M.
Mary and John helped in my purchase of two homes, and the sale of one. I couldnt use anyone else
they are tops.
Mary and her terrific team helped me through a difficult time in my life. They never lost patience and always kept a steady, calm, positive attitude toward the goal of getting my house sold. Their marketing approach could have sold my house at least six times! Marys good sense and expert knowledge played the key part in my getting the best and most fair deal on my home.
Very Sincerely, Andre OF.
I've known John and Mary since 1978 and consider them not only my realtors, but my friends. They helped me sell my home in 2000, and when Judy and I decided to relocate back to Northern Virginia to be closer to our family John and Mary helped us find exactly what we were looking for in Autumn Glen, at Stephens City, a 55+ community. The settlement transaction was one of the easiest I've ever had, and believe it or not, was enjoyable.Thank you John and Mary for helping us find the house we wanted.
With warm regards and many thanks. Dick & Judy T.
Mary and John sold two homes for us and helped us buy a third. We could not have done this in the course of a year and a half without the wonderful, professional help of Mary and her team. Always there to answer questions, always giving us great advice and guidance to our benefit, this was a smooth and pleasant process. We always recommend Mary and John and their team to anyone we meet who is buying or selling. They make the entire process a pleasure!
Cheryl & Ted V.
Selling my mothers home was not a decision I wanted to make. It was certainly not easy, but the time had come. Mary and John talked with me and worked with me to attain a timetable I could deal with. Always patient at my reluctance, her team of family members and staff has been most supportive and helpful. It will be very easy and come readily to recommend Mary and John Sleeter and their team to any buyer or seller I know is looking for someone to help them with their real estate needs.
Sandra R. D.
Mary and her entire team are great professionals who made selling our home easy and worry-free. Mary and her team were able to answer all our questions and helped us relax. I would without any reservation recommend Mary to any of our friends.
Brenda and I would like to take this opportunity to thank you and your Dynamite Team for your expertise and professionalism while handling the sale of our home in Upperville. We appreciate your hard work and dedication while making this experience a very pleasant time for us.
Mary, your knowledge and love of your job make you one of the best real estate agents available to Loudoun County and the surrounding areas. Your pleasant disposition and positive attitude are one of your greatest attributes. Your willingness to answer even the smallest question for us made working with you a great pleasure.
Not only do we want to thank you, but also the Dynamite Team that you work with so cohesively. John, Joy, Kim and Connie compliment each other extremely well. They are a very pleasant group to interact with. Even though they work behind the scenes on paperwork, phone calls, letters, etc they must be invaluable to you.
Once again, thank you for your hard work, dedication and professional manner in which you handled our sale. We will highly recommend you and your staff to friends moving in or out of Loudoun County.
Sincerely, Mike F.
Mary Sleeter was most courteous and helpful during the sale of my Leesburg townhouse. Although this property technically was a For Sale by Owner, Mary and her team provided the same professional, conscientious service during the sales process and closing as if this were her own listing.
I found that working with Mary made this experience as painless and smooth as a sales/closing could ever expect to be. I would not hesitate to engage Mary and her dynamite team for future real estate transactions.
Julia Ann B.
Wonderful Mary and John are a wealth of information on any topic related to real estate. This past experience we encountered some offers that were less than conventional. I had complete trust in their wisdom and we accepted a traditional proposal and the sale went beautifully. Any time I called their team was right on top of the request and were friendly, courteous and professional, a reflection of the team leader's Mary and John.
Its very difficult to find organizations today that work as true teams. Mary and John have a superb team. They are knowledgeable and most importantly responsive to all the aspects of selling and purchasing a home. They are professional and have relationships with organizations that have a lot of integrity ( in mortgages, lawyers, contractors etc.)
Its been a pleasure working with Mary, John, Kim & Joy. They made a stressful part of my life a lot easier.
This was the first time I worked with Mary and John, and from day one they handled the transaction with the utmost professionalism. I was even able to leave the country and felt confident and comfortable that everything would run smoothly. As it turned out, the property had a buyer and contract within one day and was sold without any difficulties. I would highly recommend Mary and John for any real estate transactions.
We were very impressed with the service Mary and John provided. They were very accessible, thorough, and trustworthy. We would highly recommend Mary and John to anyone looking to buy or sell a home.
Working with Mary & John is like working with family! They bring Real Estate down to a laymans level of understanding. They go out of their way to educate and make sure their customers are taken care of.
When we moved to the DC area in 1993 as a newly married couple, we were somewhat familiar with the area and knew wed like to settle in Loudoun County. AS soon as we met Mary, we knew she was the realtor for us. She was charming, down to earth and really listened to what we were looking for a home.
When it came time for us to sell the home in 2001, we had already moved out of state. The prospect of selling a home long distance would have intimidated us were it not for Mary and her team. Right away she put us at ease, and a short conversation with her reminded us of her knowledge and her honesty. We went through a nerve-wracking time with one buyer, but Mary and John were always on our side, and always on top of deadlines, laws, and paperwork!
Having worked with Mary as both a buyer and a seller, we can wholeheartedly say that she is an excellent advocate. We would recommend Mary and John and their team to anyone looking to buy or sell property in Loudoun County. Call them! You will not be disappointed!
Dave & Michelle O.
We are thrilled! You sold our home so quickly and so professionally. We have lived in Loudoun for almost 35 years and have sold homes four times, but this was more than a home sale. You sold our home place as we were downsizing for retirement. Your understanding that we were selling a home we loved so much showed in how you handled every step in a supportive, friendly, and caring fashion. Because our home sold so fast and at a price that was excellent, we found ourselves having to close quickly. Your calm and supportive handling of every detail made it a very enjoyable process. Now all we need is for you to find us a vacation condo at the beach! Again we thank you so much!
Tom & Carolyn W.
Mary stands out in her profession because of her honest, straightforward, easy-going way of doing business. She is not your typical real-estate agent. She & her team are easily accessible, quick to respond and happy to help. There are no high-pressure sales or questionable tactics used by the Mary John. They do what they say theyll do, when they say theyll do it. It was a pleasure to work with Mary and John and their team and we would gladly recommend them to our friends and/or use them again ourselves!
Heather & Scott W.
Weve found your team to be knowledgeable, professional, and above all else, helpful! When we sold the house in Berryville, Mary and John were the only agents who had a marketing plan, that inspired confidence, when purchasing the property in Leesburg, we were pleased to be represented in a manner that insured our success.
Linda & Mike S.
I want to thank you for the way you handled the sale of my house. You took the worry out by taking care of a lot of things I would have had to take care of if I had listed with another rear estate company. You are a very caring team. Also you saved me money on my mortgage payments because of the quick sale. If I ever need a real estate company again I would use you.
Selling a home is probably the most important thing, financially, that a person can do. It is taxing-both mentally and physically. It is a very frustrating, experience. We researched many realtors in the area, through their advertisements and consulting with our friends. The end result was that Mary and John Sleeter were the only choice.
We first met with them in our home to consult with them on any charges/improvements that needed to be made. They spent several hours going through the house and making suggestions. They were in no hurry and made us feel at ease. They were complimentary of our home and the work that we had put into it. Afterwards, we told them that we would make the improvements and call them back when we were ready.
When they returned, they sat down with us to answer all of our questions. We have a dog and did not want realtors showing the house without an appointment. They said that was not a problem. The appointment worked better for us anyway by allowing us to straighten up before the potential client arrived. In addition, we were not standing by day after day waiting for the intrusion.
In conclusion, Mary and John are the Caring Touch in Loudoun County. They are right there every step of the way. Mary is the consummate professional and she is warm and friendly. Then there is Marys support team.
Kim is a hoot. She answers most follow-up questions and arranges most of the appointments. She has an outstanding sense of humor and never misses a chance to inject it.
John, Marys husband and indentured servant, covers for Mary when she is unavailable and takes the photos for the listing.
Joy comes into play after the contract is signed. She coordinates all aspects of the closing by scheduling appointments for surveyors, termite inspection, etc. She also keeps the client informed as to the progress of the closing activities.
In my opinion, no house sale is pleasant. There are always bumps in the road. Mary and John and their team makes the ride a lot smoother. I would recommend them to anyone interested in buying or selling a home.
Jim & Joanne S.
We chose Mary and John from a group of three different realtors we had chosen to interview. We liked their easy demeanor, professionalism, and wealth of experience in our area.
When offers started to come in on our home. They very skillfully guided us through all of them and helped us to get more than our asking price.
All of their staff are top-notch, very helpful, and made us feel we were always welcome to call with any kind of question. Thank you so much.
Mary and John were outstanding, they were so kind & patient in helping us find a new home and very helpful in selling our old home. Their honesty was so refreshing. Everything went smoothly from start to finish. It was a pleasure working with Mary and John & their team. We highly recommend them & feel privileged to have them share our joy of our new home.
