My husband and I have known Mary for the past ten years. We recently used her to buy our dream home and sell our old home. Mary was phenomenal! She really listened to our wants and desires and sent us listings immediately matching them. She is someone you want representing you for sure! She is thoughtful, patient, and kind, but most importantly, knows real estate! She is a wealth of knowledge and experience. She did the all the work, answered all of our endless phone calls, texts, and emails. She always kept us updated along the way which really helped reduce all our anxiety we had. She makes you feel like you are her only client while you know she ...— CHERI & BILL G.
After renting for over 20 years, my husband and I decided to buy a condo in SF. We went on line to figure out how to approach getting an agent, and a guide said to interview several candidates. We interviewed 3 agents and Mary stood out in numerous ways, including: (1) she lived in SF and really knew the market; (2) she was super friendly; (3) she came prepared; (4) she really listened to our requirements and had several suggestions. We ended up going with Mary and it is one of the best decisions we could have made. It took us a while to find the right condo, and Mary was extremely patient. When we found the condo of our dreams, Mary was indispensab...— MARGIE L.
First-time homebuyer? She's got a packet for that. Looking beyond your means? She keeps you focused. Mary is a superagent! We (unintentionally) might have clocked the fastest closing time ever for a first-time homebuyer without an ounce of buyer's remorse, mostly due to Mary's thoroughness and going the extra-mile-ness of her work ethic. Within the first hour of introduction via email, she had multiple listings tailored to my search and set me up with a CleanOffer.com account. She literally held my hand through the stressful and confusing process, educating me beyond anything I could have researched online. Most notable though is her complete access...— JAIME C.
Not to be sacrilegious, but Mary can perform miracles! Case in point, she managed to keep a middle-class family living not only in San Francisco, but in their beloved North Beach neighborhood. Her tenacity, relentless positive attitude, and insider connections managed to secure us a flat in the heart of North Beach where we have resided as renters for over 25 years. Mary and Kathleen responded to every question, every email or text almost immediately. She held our neophyte buyers hands throughout the process and never failed to reassure us and go to bat for us. We can't recommend her more strongly, she really "got" us, our financial situation (not r...— CECEILA D.
Mary is an amazing agent. She's very knowledgeable of the market with years of experience, she's very established (i.e. strong relationships with other agents), professional, resourceful, diligent, trustworthy and provides a thorough follow-up before, during and after the closing. She helped me with the purchase of my first condo in San Francisco in a very competitive market. I email her about a condo one evening around 8 pm and she was on it by 8:30 pm. By 11:00 pm she had already spoken to the seller's agent and the process started. Mary guided me and advised me through the entire process and made it a breeze; at every stage I felt confident that ...— MARCUS M.
With two young children our family was quickly outgrowing our rental flat. As we started to look at our options, many friends insisted on buying, due to their experiences with the team of Mary Macpherson and Kathleen DiGrande at Paragon. We met with them early in the process and were immediately impressed at their strategy, connections, and network of mortgage and contractors. Our family was working with a modest budget (by SF standards) and Mary and Kathleen stuck with us through many months and offers. To say they went above and beyond is an understatement, even going as far as meeting us at a new listing at 9:45 pm on a friday night, which happen...— CARRIE A.
This is long overdue, as Mary helped my husband and I, as well as our 2 young sons find a home 5 years ago in the Inner Richmond. It was a seller's market (not a shock) and Mary was bound and determined to find us a place, while giving us sound advice on navigating the market. Her relationship to other Realtors® and the community is priceless. Five years later and we are so happy in our home and are grateful we took Mary's advice to stretch our price range a tad to get a home that has longevity for us (so we haven't had to move again!). Beyond her results, she truly is passionate about finding homes for people in SF. Her charm of having grown up her...— SHARI J.
My wife and I have partnered with Mary and her team multiple times over the last few years to buy and sell our homes in San Francisco, and each experience was a 5 star rating. And I was previously a Realtor®, so I know a thing or two about good experiences vs. bad when it comes to buying and selling. Mary and her team were always super responsive and helpful. They have been doing this work for years, and it showed. Each time we needed a mover, painter, lender, insurance agent, contractor, decorator, etc., they always had a great referral. Mary and her team took all of the stress and hassle out of the buying and selling experience; you don't realize ...— WILL H.
Mary recently sold our condo in San Francisco. It was difficult for us as I didn't really want to sell it but the economics were just not there and it had to happen. Mary was fantastic, giving us realistic market appraisals, advice and counsel throughout the entire process. She made it ridiculously easy and painless. I'm pretty hands-on with major life decisions like this and Mary's biggest task was getting me to back away and let her handle it. Which she did beautifully. She coordinated cleaning, staging, gardening and then babysat the property through multiple open houses and individual showings. We received multiple offers and were very pleased w...— ROBERT T.
I am absolutely thrilled I found Mary Macpherson! She is an absolutely amazing agent. I live in New York, and she was able to sell my San Francisco condo in record time at my ideal price point. She had an excellent marketing strategy through her selective top agent network and knows exactly the right stager, handyman, inspection agent, etc to get for your home to ensure a seamless process and secure the highest possible sale price. Throughout the sale, she kept me updated on all necessary aspects of the showings, paperwork, etc. She was patient, very diligent and held my hand every step of the way. I highly recommend Mary for any of your real estate...— CYNTHIA E.
Hands down, you can't find a better Realtor® in San Francisco than Mary. She goes the extra mile and then some! I'm convinced her personality wins the other side over and keeps you in the catbird seat. The most amazing thing about her is that she makes you feel like you are her only client when you know full well she is a busy bee. My husband and I are in the middle of a complicated escrow and I don't think we would have made it this far without her. She is also a great resource for contractors, etc too. You are crazy if you pick anyone else to represent you or your property. She is truly the best!— ARI H.
We are first time home buyers in SF and could not have found a better real estate agent than Mary and team! Mary is not only experienced and extremely knowledgeable about the SF city market, but more importantly truly cares about the home buying experience for her clients. There were many times during our process where unexpected challenges and questions came up and Mary was there at every turn and completely went over and beyond our expectations. We highly recommend Mary and team to all of our friends and family.— REBECCA L.
I've worked with Mary for a long time and can honestly say she is one of the best people to work with in the business! She works hard, listens to her clients and understands how to make a difficult transaction work. She loves people and it really shows in how she approaches her business. And, she is one of the most sincere, honest people I know. I would highly recommend her for your next real estate purchase! She is a pro!— VICTORIA G.
Mary help us to purchase a perfect condo that we have been dreaming in SF. Mary is very knowledgeable in SF market and well connected with other Realtors®. She is responsive to our questions even in the middle of the night. Mary saw what every other Realtors® overlooked rights to the roof for us. We can't wait to build a roof deck overlooking the Golden Gate Bridge. Thank you, Mary.— Y. L.
Mary is awesome, I don't know what more I can say to describe her. Buying a home can be a daunting experience but she makes the whole process worthwhile, particularly when both you and your partner have busy jobs. From start to finish, Mary helped us go through the whole process and we ended up with a home that we love returning to day in day out.— AMY K.
If you want a Realtor® who is the best ever, get Mary! She is going to get you what you want and you will have fun along the way. She makes things happen in a non-pushy and reassuring way. We're ever grateful to her because this perfect home wouldn't have happened without her ballsy can-do spirit! P.S. She's just a great person all in all.— JULIE D.
Mary is the best real estate agent and nicest person you can possibly find. Every one of my clients, business associates and friends I have referred to Mary loves me for it. There's not much else to say, if you want to sell or buy a house work with Mary, and you'll thank me for it!— PATRICK E.
Mary is a pleasure to work with. Not only is she friendly and knowledgeable, she went above and beyond to negotiate a couple properties for us. We ended up with 1 great condo that we love. Whenever someone is in the market, we always recommend her.— JODI S.
Mary has a true passion for real estate, she will find you the best house at the best price. If you are looking to purchase a home in San Francisco, go see Mary, she is a pure joy to be around. I highly recommend her!— SHEREE A.
It's August 2013, and the market in SF is rough, has been rough for over a year and not slowing down. We started looking in summer 2012 for a bigger place. We have been to more open houses than we ever wanted to imagine possible. In fact, our Sundays were usually reserved for open houses so it put a huge damper on our weekend plans for what seemed like forever. This was with a previous broker. Then, after a year, we decided we needed a change. We found Mary through co-workers who raved about her. Our daughters loved her the minute they met her. I think that was a sign. Mary totally got us—she understood what we were trying to do. We are a family wit...— JEY O.
Mary's clients have enjoyed remarkable success when buying and selling San Francisco homes, condos, multi-unit property and investments.
