Over the past 10 Years my husband and I have purchased three houses and sold two. I have spent countless hours working with Mary and have been so grateful for her assistance with each of our real estate transactions.
One of the things that stands out about Mary is her effort to get to know her clients so that she can ensure their needs are met. Mary could probably pick out a house that my husband and I would like without us even being there. Mary realized that it was a busy and stressful time for our us and was eager to help us out with any details of our purchase and sale in order to make things easier for us. I found that Mary was always available when I need to speak with her and was very prompt in returning emails or phone messages.
Mary puts a lot of time into each of her files and does her research into the current real estate market so that she has a good sense of what similar homes are selling for.Mary also has a keen eye and knows exactly what buyers are looking for. She helped us to make some simple arrangements to our existing furniture and decorative items that really made our house look appealing. Mary gave us good advice but also allowed us to make our own decisions.
In summary, Mary treats her clients like her own family. She is always available to help and is also extremely knowledgeable and professional. I would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone needing real estate services.
We highly recommend Mary McMurran as a listing agent. Her dedicated and personal approach to real estate reduced our stress and allowed us to make decisions when selling our first home.
She was easy to reach when we had questions and was very patient when explaining our options. Whether by phone, email. or text she was very prompt with her response and always provided a clear answer. She was the only person that handled our sale and not once did we talk to an assistant or fellow agent.
We were very happy with the suggested list price and the amount of time it took for the house to sell. Throughout the negotiations and home inspection part of the sale of our home, Mary was very honest and knowledgeable. She collaborated well with the purchasing agent, but always had our best interest first and foremost.
When it comes time to sell our house again, we will definitely work with Mary. She does an outstanding job of easing a stressful and emotional time in your life.

Selection of a real estate agent proved to be a daunting task. Tackling something like this as a senior is a lot more difficult than when you are younger. With so many different agents and strategies we found ourselves a little overwhelmed at times. We wanted someone who would see us, for us, and not just an other client with a house to sell. In short, we wanted the personal touch as well as the professional.
Mary was the right choice and we were so pleased with our decision. She has the ability to make people feel comfortable and at ease. When she came into our home she carefully explained to us what we should expect in the selling of our home, and took time explaining things to us and dealing with any concerns we had. Mary made us feel like we were her only clients (which we are sure wasn't the case). We also appreciated that she was in contact with us daily keeping us informed about any interest in the property whether on the internet or in the paper. The visual tour that she had produced of our home was nothing less than spectacular.
From the listing, through the open houses, to the sale, Mary was an important part of our lives.

Last year I really struggled with selling my home in Cambridge that sat on the market for six months and then expired. I blamed the lack of offers on the fact that it was a higher priced home with a unique executive design. In January 2005, after following the advice and counsel of Mary Mcmurran, my home sold within 24 hours of the listing date.
I was very impressed with Mary's ability to " see outside the box". She applied her incredible skills of staging and turned my home into a "palace"! Mary Mcmurran is one of the hardest working people I know. She recognized that I have three children and owned a business with over 23 staff. So she shouldered much of the research, shopping and negotiating with venders to find the best carpet and paint prices. After the transformation of my house was complete at the end of February, she proceeded to recommend we list the house for $10,000 higher than I originally had it listed. I trusted her recommendation and was amazed to see my house sell within 24 hours. All the money I had outlaid for the carpet and paint was returned 2 fold.
I highly recommend this talented, professional and classy lady. Not only will she work hard on your behalf, she is fun to be around!
