Read What Our Clients Say

Upbeat and professional

My husband and I worked with Mary Ellen and her team to buy our Forever Home.  They were always upbeat, professional, and made sure that we were informed of and included in all parts of the buying process.  They made everything easier.  Since our purchase, they have reached out to see if we needed other realtor services, shared real estate updates, and included us in their engagement activities.  We couldn’t be happier with Mary Ellen, her team, and their services.

On the cutting edge of real estate marketing!

Mary and her team are very professional, responsive and on the cutting edge of real estate marketing. Her team has the knowledge and experience to help whether buying or selling. - S. Barocio

The perfect choice for a realtor!

We moved to the Alpharetta area from the West Coast, not knowing much at all about the area. Mary Ellen was the perfect choice for a realtor! She listened to our needs for a new home and community and found the perfect home. She’s energetic, honest and extremely knowledgeable. We highly recommend Mary Ellen and her team! - Gina Storr

Prepare Your Home For Showings

The 3 R's - Remodel, Re-stage, and Reprice!

If you’re going to spend money on costly upgrades, make sure that the changes you make have a high return on investment. Remember, some improvements may not be necessary to sell your home for top dollar, particularly if inventory levels are low in your area.

Here’s where a good real estate agent ( Me 😉) can help guide you.

🔸If local buyers aren’t looking for super skylights or a steam shower, then it doesn’t make sense to add them.

🔸A fresh coat of neutral paint, a new carpet, and a spruced-up landscape are typically low-cost ways to make a great first impression.

🔸In general, updates to the kitchen and bathrooms provide the highest return on investment.

🔸 If you have old cabinetry, you might be able to simply replace the doors and hardware for an updated look.

A good agent often knows what people expect in your area and can help you plan upgrades accordingly.
