Mary Allen’s Reviews
Patrick W.This WHOLE team was kind, knowledgeable, fast acting and a very easy to work with when it came to helping my family and I purchase our new home! I (will) definitely recommend this team to anyone I know or meet along the way. Thanks again Columbus Team for making these positives all happen!!
Kathleen & James K.Mary Allen was fantastic! She was able to help us get the beautiful home we wanted, even in this challenging real estate market!
José A.Thanks so much for your help Mary Allen
Marba WojcickiAdvice from Realtor Mary Allen was spot on from pricing to preparation of the house for the marketing video. Her comments assured me the team could get the house on the market quickly. Two days after the video and information posted online, the house was in contract. Closing took place online from my out of state location.
Jennifer T.Mary took care of me like family. As a single mom, the whole team helped me get the best price in the best time and valued my busy schedule. They made an overwhelming task nothing to be worried about. “We’ve got you” is what I felt like from start to finish. Thank you all so much for making this chapter of my life a special one! Here’s to new beginnings.
Betsy S.Mary Allen was the realtor that worked with me and she was great! She made me feel comfortable immediately and very quickly I knew I was in good hands with Mary. She is knowledgeable, professional, attentive to my texts, calls and questions and always made me feel like I was important no matter how busy she probably was. I never felt like I was being pushed. She is very good at explaining things and always felt comfortable asking her questions. The entire Team was great and I expected to be stressed during the house buying process and I never really was stressed because I knew Mary was guiding me through and she knows what she’s doing! Thank you Mary and the Team!
Denise S.I’ve returned to The Columbus Team for the sale of 2 houses and the buying of 3 houses. Every time has been smooth and easier. Each time I’m more surprised at their innovations! The relationships with this group goes back 30 years. Those haven’t changed.
Robin & Ginny H.This is terribly late getting off to you Mary but I can’t thank you (and also Sue), but especially you enough for all your help, guidance, encouragement and just being there for us. You are a treasure! Thank you from the bottom of our hearts. The cats send their thanks too – tee hee!!
Andrew & MollyWe have been working with Mary for many years to find our dream home. She has grown to be a friend. It was a pleasure to work with her and she never gave up on us! Thanks Mary and the Columbus Team, we love our home!
Renee KasunMary was super helpful! Her knowledge and experience were excellent! She made a very tough process easy and manageable.
Mike and NicoleOur experience with The Columbus Team was great! Mary Allen was very knowledgeable of the city and surrounding areas. She was able to share her insights with us, which we found very helpful as first time homebuyers. The team worked very hard to help us close on time and through any issues we experienced Mary worked tirelessly to help us find our home and we couldn’t be happier! She was always positive and encouraging throughout the process. She was very quick to respond to any questions! We really enjoyed working with her!
Katie HolzapfelMary was an amazing agent. So patient and encouraging. I looked at many houses but none were the right fit. I wasn’t sure it would ever happen but Mary had enough hope for both of us and eventually it paid off and I got “the one”! She was always quick to respond and very accommodating to my schedule. I recommend her to everyone!
MeredithMary helped us buy our home, and then helped us sell that same home. She provided great advice and helped us to ensure that both transactions were simple, and beneficial to us. She was flexible and Worked around our schedules. She was very knowledgeable of the value of the home and insured that we were getting the best value for our money. Mary, and the team she works with were a joy to work with.
Stephanie KleinIf you are looking for a honest real estate agent, who has good communication and follow up skills, it’s Mary Allen.
Jonathan and Barb FortkampMary was awesome! Our home buying adventure was a bit untraditional and extended over a year as we delayed in selling our old house as part of a larger commercial transaction. Mary was very responsive and helpful in evaluating home values. In two circumstances MARY and the team recommended lower asking prices, which though rejected by sellers at the trim, ended up being much closer to final sell price. The house we ended up with we originally weren’t able to see at the appt, but Mary encouraged us to go back and see it and we fell in love with it. Once the offer was in the process was smooth and clear and Mary guided us through all the steps. Thanks for everything!
Barb FortkampMary was wonderful to work with and was very patient with our family. She knew exactly what we were looking for and was very knowledgeable about price and locations. She really helped us make wise decisions. We are in love with our new home.
Gina StuderMary was wonderful… A long time friend of the family, I knew it would be a comfortable working relationship. What we appreciated the most was her years of experience and her even keeled temperament which was helpful during a very emotional experience.
Jennifer WileyMary was extremely patient and encouraging through the whole process. She took a lot of time to show me multiple listings and was very responsive to my questions and concerns. The KW Capital team was AWESOME and took the worry out of selling my home. They provided knowledgeable vendors to help with repairs and home inspections. They were very pro-active in marketing my condo and guided me through every aspect of the buying and selling process. The only ‘heavy lifting’ I did was to call a moving company, and they were able to provide a list of moving companies and a nice discount. I would recommend them to anyone!
Richard and Claire DaubneyMary was with us every step of the way and was willing to go above and beyond to help us purchase our dream home! We are so thankful for her and The Columbus Team. Everything was easy and each step of the home buying process was explained to us. Mary gave us good advice and helped us make smart decisions! She is invaluable!
Dustin & Muriel KeithI cannot begin to thank Mary and her team for her (their) knowledge, help and patience during our home sale with a “difficult” buyer. You all made a stressful and challenging experience better than I could have expected. Truly exceptional service and professionalism. Sincerely, thank you!
Cyril Scott PlessingerI recommend all my friends to the Columbus Team in Columbus. When I sell you will be the only company I will call. Thanks for all of your help in the past. Mary Allen could not have been more helpful she dealt with my times of convenience and made a good choice of recommending the carpet cleaning man who did a great job too.
Nathan Irwin & Donna CampanaOur Realtor Mary Allen, was able to show us houses very quickly which met our needs, as we had a limited time to find a house. She explained the paperwork to us step by step so we did not feel overwhelmed. She was knowledgeable and easy to stay in touch with. We were very satisfied with her!
Eric & Jessica RhodesWish that Mary could have come up to NW Ohio to show us homes. She was our realtor when we purchased our first 2 homes. We were very pleased that we received an offer so quickly and were able to move forward to closing. So that we were able to purchase our new home.
Teri MeiderI have recommended Mary to several people. Keep doing what you are doing!
Traci DixonMary Allen is a trooper! We looked at houses in the morning, evening, rain and snow. She quickly picked up on what I wanted in a “home” and helped me find a perfect fit. Her knowledge of the area and home buying in general is invaluable.
Joe BruckmanAs a first time home buyer, Mary and her team listened to what I was looking for, answered all of my questions, and offered advice and guidance whenever I needed it. I would absolutely recommend her to anyone buying a home. Her responsiveness and organization made the process easy. The expertise of the entire team was much appreciated.
Allison & PaulThank you so much for our beautiful house. Mary, we are so fortunate to have you as our realtor, and project boss. You have been so reliable and provide a wealth of information. Ricky, you have been a great contractor and handyman. We are so lucky that our first house is one that really feels like ours, and that’s something we wouldn’t have without you. We can’t wait to have you over for dinner for a proper thank you, and we promise not to sneak any housework in! Thank you again for everything. We’re so glad to have you as friends.
