“MaryLou was the absolute best to work with in both the sale of our old home
and the purchase of our new home. She sets and communicates clear
expectations, has an incredible team that she works with, was patient and
understanding yet driven and high energy, and made imperative
recommendations of who else to work with in the area. She truly made our
dreams come true on an incredibly tight timeline.
MaryLou was recommended to us from a friend in the area who had previously
worked with her. My husband and I had been working with another realtor in
the New Market area but I did not fully trust him and felt concerned to be
making such a huge life change with him. The first time we met MaryLou,
all of my fears were subsided, I knew MaryLou was the right person to
'captain our ship' to sell our first home and purchase one that would be
perfect for us.
MaryLou is an excellent communicator and set very clear expectations for us
to achieve in order to sell our home. Not only did MaryLou guide us in the
sale of our home, but she truly demonstrated compassion, patience and
flexibility in the process. We had set a date for the goal of listing our
house and were not able to meet it- MaryLou was SO understanding, took the
pressure off of us (that we had placed on ourselves) and told us to
breathe. What a relief to work with someone that truly understands that
family comes first! MaryLou took it from there! She has an INCREDIBLE team
of designers and photographers that staged our home. We sold within the
first 2 weeks of being listed!
Now for the buying process. MaryLou, yet again, hit it out of the park.
She recommended only the best team to work with in the process, including
an outstanding lender and leading builder with a terrific reputation. She
really knows the area and went above and beyond to make recommendations for
us- she even made suggestions for local daycares and dog-walkers! I feel
like MaryLou took care of everything leading up to settlement and allowed
us to focus on packing, moving and our family. Not only did everything go
extremely smoothly in the settlement processes but MaryLou followed up to
see how the moving process went and to assure we were satisfied once we
were in our new home. MaryLou is the most kind, supportive, driven and
high energy realtor I have ever had the pleasure of working with. I would
consider MaryLou a true friend, excellent neighbor and expert realtor- I
would recommend her to everyone!
The Mains Family, New Market, MD (Buyer)
“We had been neighbors for a number of years so we knew MaryLou Fisher. We have watched her raise her two boys, seen her commitment to the community, her insistence on things being done right, and her attention to detail. We had seen her professionalism up close and never considered dealing with any other realtor. We made the right decision!
Ours was a somewhat unique situation - two 70+ year olds living in a community of Generation X and Y'ers. Our tastes, life style, health issues and focus differed considerably from many of the young families in our community. Mary Lou appreciated our situation, worked with us on "updating" our home while searching for properties in the Frederick area that would suit our needs. She found the perfect location, and we could not be happier.
Mary Lou kept us informed every step of the way, She was especially good with explaining details to my husband who was somewhat apprehensive about the major downsizing we were undertaking. She put his mind at ease. She often went above and beyond to help me. I especially appreciated that she was always upfront with us when it came to making difficult decisions. She didn't sugar coat anything; she had us focus on those aspects of the sale that were critical and not to obsess on others. MaryLou Fisher made this potentially traumatic period of our lives manageable. I highly recommend her. You will not be disappointed!
Myrna Whitworth, Frederick (Buyer)
“ MaryLou is a well rounded agent. She listened to the things that were important to us in the buying process, and gave feedback on the current market. She has been super patient and willing to go the long haul with us to find the right house for our family. We never felt it was just about selling us a house. MaryLou genuinley wanted us to find the perfect home. It took some time and it paid off, we found our forever home!!! Cant thank, or recommend, MaryLou enough. Class act. ”
Trish and Michael, Ijamsville (Buyer)
“MaryLou Fisher listened and understood my situation of being on a very limited budget and desperately needing to get top dollar for my house. She worked with me and gave me a list of repairs/remodeling that fit my budget to get the house ready. She gave me the information on the market value and we as a team came to an agreeable sales price that I wanted and needed. She did her staging and advertising magic and we had numerous people make appointments to see the house in the first week. On that second week, we received an offer. She constantly communicated with me throughout the negotiations so I was informed and made my decisions to get the price I wanted. We closed that same month and I couldn’t be happier. I would gladly recommend MaryLou to anyone buying or selling a home.”
Tim Burns, New Market, MD (Seller)
“I was nervous about how long it might take to sell my home because I had taken the risk of purchasing another home before selling my current home. Marylou was patient with me and completely understood my need to be sure we got the home on the market as soon as possible. She gave me advice on what I needed to do and what I didn't need to do (just as important!) to get the house ready. She also had plenty of referrals for me so it wasn't hard to hire fast and competent help to get the house ready. Her expert advice and professional manner resulted in my home selling within just a few days. I could not have asked for a better experience and intend to recommend Marylou to my friends and family!”
Wendy Kerr, New Market (Seller)
“Marylou Fisher is a professional and top notch realtor. She knows properties in the Frederick area very well.
Marylou is sensitive to all needs when selling your home of 26 years.
I have and will continue recommending Marylou to friends as she never meets a stranger and reads clients very well.
Belinda and Mike McKee. Middletown, MD (Seller)
“After years of wanting to move into a particular neighborhood, Marylou helped me make it happen. She listened to me when I explained what kind of home I wanted and what I needed to do to purchase it, and then used her extensive referral base to connect me up with the people who could get all the financing in place. She was incredibly efficient and so helpful throughout the entire homebuying process that it truly was an easy experience. Thank you!”
Wendy Kerr, New Market (Buyer)
“We had a very good experience with Mary Lou. She is professional and very knowlegeable on the local real estate market.
From the very first appointment regarding listing our home, advice and recommendations regarding pricing in the current market, staging for preparation for professional pictures, absolutely remarkable marketing materials - all of this with thorough attention to detail.
Recommending Mary Lou would be a pleasure. We have recommended her to others already who are preparing to sale. She made selling our home a pleasant experience. ”
Belinda and Mike McKee (Seller)
“Marylou Fisher came highly recommended by our lender based on our immediate needs for an efficient and intelligent broker who could work quickly to sell our home. Marylou came to our home prepared and well versed on our neighborhood and surrounding area. She gave us a list of things to work on within 2 days of her initial visit and she also gave us a specific timeframe of deadlines to meet in order to list our house ahead of the Spring rush. Her deadlines worked and we were under contract within 18 hours of listing our home. She also handled a nervous first time buyer and less than efficient buyer’s agent in order for us to close on time and move out of state. MaryLou was a true pro and was the best agent I have ever hired when selling property. She is relentless for her clients and is a straight shooter, two of her best qualities. I would refer her to anyone and truly appreciated her professionalism and worth ethic. ”
Kimberly Swanson, formerly from Elkridge Maryland (now in Nashville Tennessee) (Seller)
“Marylou was great to work with. She was timely with all aspects of the sale and made our house look amazing. We were pleased with how quickly our home sold and how well she negotiated with the buyers agent. ”
Brooke, Frederick (Seller)
“Marylou is a true professional and worked with us from the beginning to the end. She has great knowledge of the local real estate market and esteblished relistic price point for sale. She helped with design and decorations for the home. She personally took care of the property after we had relocated.We feel fortunate to have Marylou as our agent.Would recommend to our friends and family without hesitation!”
Rakesh &Swati Malik, Bethesda ,Maryland (Seller)
“As a single female parent with zero handy women skills, I was extremely reluctant to purchase a home on my own. I had zero knowledge of the process and really was unsure of the massive commitment. I spoke with Marylou several times throughout the past year asking SEVERAL questions, dragging her out to show me properties and picking her brain about my future decisions in real estate. Each and every step of the process Marylou was educated, factual, responsive and most importantly to me PATIENT!
I chose Marylou Fisher because of her knowledge and experience in real estate. She is also a trusted friend and professional who listened to my financial limitations and real estate needs.
I could not and probably would not have bought a home without Marylou.
I would highly recommend Marylou Fisher! She rocks!!
Beth Tran New Market MD (Buyer)
“Marylou is fantastic! I would recommend her to everyone. She was so patient with is as we figured out what we wanted in our first home.”
Erin, Frederick MD (Buyer)
“Marylou has an amazing amount of knowledge and expertise. She knew the right move and the right next steps for every scenario and never once made us feel like we were on our own to make an educated and informed decision. Her professionalism and efficiency were exactly what we were hoping for in a broker.
Even when on vacation, Marylou responded to every request, question, comment in a timely manner and guided us to ensure we were satisfied with every answer. She explained everything quickly and concisely to allow us to make the best decision possible. She has the exact amount of business and personable attitude that made our home buying process perfect. Not to mention, she's so fun to be around!
I am not a first time homebuyer, and the last time I bought a home, it was incredibly stressful, right up until the last moment. I couldn't believe the night/day difference with Marylou and her business partners. This time around was undeniably better.
I couldn't be happier with the entire experience!”
Kati Reimer, Knoxville (Buyer)
“We would hire MaryLou again in a second. Every single part of the home sale process went exactly as planned. MaryLou was on top of everything... staging, advertising, organizing showings, etc. Very very impressed. ”
Angela, Frederick MD (Seller)
“MaryLou exceeded expectations on all factors...during a potential bidding war, her reputation with other realtors and her persistence was a significant factor in the acceptance of our bid by the sellers!”
Daniel Melton, Ijamsville (Buyer)
“MaryLou executed all of our needs from recommendations to our lender, home inspection and title company. She has an amazing circle of influence and we appreciated using all of these resources locally within Frederick County, this was extremely important to us. She had a rapport with each company and is highly regarded.
MaryLou was extremely timely with all communications and concise. She gave honest and trustworthy recommendations, always approachable and available 24/7.
We are grateful to have our realtor MaryLou Fisher from Century 21 Redwood Realty. We appreciated all of the positive local connections that MaryLou made, from our lender MLend to our home inspection with Pro-Spex, to closing at Clear Title. This local Frederick team of businesses was amazing. MaryLou provided nothing short than exceptional service and a stress-free process from presenting an offer mid-October to closing within 45 days! It was truly a seamless execution.
It was extremely important to use a Broker who knew Frederick County and the growing markets/neighborhoods. We wanted an expert on our local community to help us look at our home investment. ”
