"Mary Jo represented our family in two real estate transactions in the Bay Area. She is is exceptionally knowledgeable about the mid peninsula residential real estate market and has a good team of professionals working with her. She is well known among her realtor peers for her high ethical standards, dependable professionalism and communication skills. In addition to our successes in the real estate transactions, we owe Mary Jo a debt of gratitude for protecting us from our own (potentially costly) mistakes. I am glad that I had this opportunity to publicly acknowledge Mary Jo." - Eswar


"Mary Jo has high ethical standards, speaks with great honesty and does what is right for the customer and her company. Business and life is approached with a positive attitude that carries over to others. These same skills that made her a success at Xerox has also made her successful in real estate." - Mary

"We've worked with Mary Jo 3 times! Once to buy a house, a few years later to sell it, and buy a new one. Mary Jo was always professional and on top of everything that needed to be done. In negotiations, she did a good job giving us her point of view but leaving the decision to us. In one case, it resulted us *not* getting the house we were bidding on -- I'm still happy about because we would of have overpaid! I would work with Mary Jo again the next time we're in the market!" - Pat
