"It is with pleasure that I write this letter of reference for Mary. . .Mary's professionalism, calmness and patience were much appreciated. She explained how the real estate process worked, how to value the property, researched comparable properties, was straight forward in her assessment of the house's strengths and weaknesses relative to others which were on the market or had recently sold, and most importantly, explained the strategy required to ensure we received the very best price for my mother's home.
When it came time for myself to purchase a home. . .Mary patiently answered my numerous questions. . .By knowing exactly what I was looking for, by staying up well into the night to do research on the comparables and by employing her excellent negotiation skills, Mary was able to close a deal that came in 4 percent below the asking price. . .
I trust Mary. She is an excellent real estate agent. I recommend her without hesitation to anyone wishing to buy or sell a house."
"It is my pleasure to write a letter of reference for Mary Carrier. . .We had met several other agents all of whom were more interested in how quickly we wanted to buy and how much we were looking to spend than what we were actually looking for in a house. In meeting Mary we knew we had found someone that we wanted to put our trust in for the biggest purchase of our lives.
Mary took the time to educate us on the purchase process and to really understand what it was that we were looking for. At no time did we feel rushed into making an offer on a home. . .When we finally found a house that we felt suited our needs, the true value of Mary's counsel became very clear. Her negotiation skills allowed us to stay within our budget. . .She walked us through what we needed to do next, assisted us in arranging a house inspection, gave us referrals to lawyers, insurance/mortgage brokers and contractors.
We would not hesitate to recommend Mary Carrier to anyone looking to buy or sell a home and we look forward to working with Mary in the future."

"I met Mary Carrier in October 2008 when I was interviewing prospective real estate agents to list my mother's house. . . Mary came to our initial meeting completely prepared and answered any questions I had clearly and honestly. She also gave me suggestions to help make the house more appealing, which were based in common sense and elbow grease and didn't require spending a large amount of money.
I found Mary very easy to talk to and didn't feel pressured by her. The decision to list with Mary was an easy one. . . There was a time that I thought that if you price your property correctly, any real estate agent could put up a sign, run a few ads and sell it. In this difficult market, with less than an ideal house, this just didn't happen. Mary was there with me every step of the way. . . Mary included every member of my family in the process and took the time to explain to them why she felt something needed to be done.
I would highly recommend Mary Carrier to anyone selling their home. She is a great agent with a deep understanding of the real estate business."
"It is with great pleasure that I am able to write this letter in connection with Mary Carrier. We came to rely upon her complete availability, her infinite patience, her devotion to her clients, her integrity, her honesty, her irreproachable tact and grace in negotiating and on her extremely calming nature. Mary's thoroughness is also beyond compare. . .
Though our professional relation has run its course, our friendship with Mary continues. We trust her implicitly and have recommended her, without hesitation, to our friends."
"I am pleased to provide a reference for Mary Carrier who has helped my husband and I with two real estate transactions and provided many hours of advice and perspective to us over our 8 year relationship. . . It wasn't until recently, however, that we came to truly appreciate what sets Mary apart from her peers.
Last year we relocated to Washington State. . .Mary was there every step of the way. She helped rent our house in Toronto. When it was time to sell our home, Mary project managed the prep and staging of the house from start to finish, we were thousands of miles away. She went far above and beyond what a typical real estate agent would do for a client. After 3 months of prep work Mary felt the time was right to list our home and a week later it was sold.
Mary did a fantastic job of everything from the logistics of prepping the house for sale to the strategy around timing and pricing. . . I would highly recommend Mary for anyone who is looking for a real estate agent who will truly be there every step of the way. Thank you, Mary, for all you do!"

IN PRAISE OF MARY CARRIER
"My wife and I spoke to Mary. . .We were in no hurry to move, but wanted to find out what the market would say about our house. In spite of the fact that we were not ready to list, Mary was completely obliging. . .she never exerted any pressure to list. (When) we listed we were immediately rewarded with interest. . .What was most important was not just that the house sold, but that Mary was scrupulously careful about how we listed and what we showed. She was attentive at all times and kept in constant touch.
We know we could not have done better. We have thanked her many times since."
