" We wanted to sell our house and move DC.  We chose Marry Farrell because we had heard that she was good, and that she had a lot of experience selling homes in Alexandria.  While we wanted to sell the house soon, we wanted to get a good offer, and there were several very comparable homes in our neighborhood on the market at the same time.  Mary assured us our house would sell, and brought in a designer to help stage the home, and to recommend some minor improvements that would help attract buyers.  Soon after following her recommendations, we got a good offer, and sold our house.  The other comparable homes were still on on the market.  She was always professional, courteous and stayed on top of everything so we had nothing to worry about.  She made the whole process easy. We would highly recommend her to anyone who is looking to sell their home. Ann and John Hulen - Seller 2017"

– John and Ann Hulen


" You more than met my expectations. So professional. Mary made everything run so smoothly. Always in contact, getting things done. Not only will she be my real estate agent forever, but a friend as well. THANK YOU! THANK YOU! Buyers - Robin and Michael Tucker 2017"

– Robin and Michael Tucker


" Selling a home can be a stressful, arduous process, but when you have Mary Farrell as your agent, all your cares can just fade away. Working with Mary is a dream, an absolute pleasure. She guides you so carefully from getting your home completely ready( she knows EXACTLY how to do this-it's her special talent), to setting the price perfectly right, to working with any contractors, to all the paperwork( which can seem mountainous!), Mary will make sure everything is perfect. We sold in our home in 1 day for full price! She is so savvy that we think she could open a school for realtors to sell homes as well as she does! She is the realtor's realtor! If you want to sell your home as quickly and easily as we did in the Greater DC area, but in particular Old Town Village, then Mary is your go to person! A neighbor who also praises Mary very highly actually said it best--"If you want to sell your home, you have to Mary Farrell it!"  "

– Robyn and Allan Webb


" Mary was an excellent choice to help sell our house. She is professional and knowledgeable, thoughtful and attentive to individual concerns. She kept us informed throughout the process and responded quickly to our questions, which was especially important after we'd moved to California. "

– Debra and Matthew Whitcomb


" I purchased four properties from Mary Farrell, and rented them through her as well. She is very efficient and personal service is her hallmark. She is thorough, professional, helpful and has a deep desire to make sure her clients are very happy with their purchases. Mary is very good at her job and I would recommend using her services. "

– Colene Johnson


" We thought it would be easy to sell our home in a hot market like Alexandria. A little paint, some basic touch ups, repairs where needed and, poof, buyers would come. We had our eyes opened when the home across the courtyard sold for far more than we expected. What happened to draw six figures more than we anticipated? Mary Farrell. We bought our home in 2009, at the bottom of the market. The sellers were tired and unwilling to put any money into getting their home ready to sell. So we pushed our offer down, and bought a nice home where the appliances and finishes were 12 years old. When we started thinking about selling, we asked Mary to have a look. We’d made some improvements, but the look was now 18 years old. Mary asked us what we thought we’d get in a sale. I guessed we would get about $65,000 more than we’d paid. You might be able to get that,” Mary said, “but you might do much better if you update the look of your home.” For example, all of the cabinet pulls and door handles had a brass finish. Change them to brushed nickel, Mary suggested, and you’ve already given it a different look. After Mary and her decorator toured our home, they had a long list of suggestions: carpets, paint, appliances, and, oh yes, let’s pack most of your things and store them in the garage so we can show the home like a model. We were a little grumpy about it. But that sale across the courtyard motivated us. We spent more than $15,000 getting the house ready to sell. We went to market with a price that was $126,000 higher than what we’d paid in 2009. Three days later, we had a full-price offer. "

– Jim & Lynn Landers


" You are a consummate professional, so talented in what you do. You will always be our choice for our real estate needs. Congratulations, and a sincere thank you for your wise counsel. If we hadn't listened to you we may still be looking for people. We literally couldn't have gotten a better turn around time and outcome. "

– Kim P


" Mary far exceeded our expectations! She went above and beyond and made a VERY emotional decision a very pleasant one! "

– Steve & Diane Campbell


" Mary was a Godsend! We received two full price offers within 24 hours of listing our home and before the first official open house. This was not by chance – two months in advance of our home going on the market, Mary, along with her home designer expert, did a thorough study of ways to improve the marketability of our house and made valuable recommendations, that we implemented, which paid off big time when the house went up for sale. We were very impressed with all Mary’s services in getting the house on the market – the staging, flyer, brochure, pictures, description of the home, beautifully descriptive webpages with floor layouts accompanying the virtual tour, and, most importantly, her contacts in the area. It didn't stop there – Mary’s advice and guidance was great in vetting the offers, keeping track of the buyer’s financing, generally being on top of things, and being available to get details taken care of while we were out of town. We can’t thank her enough! If you want your home sold fast and at the right price you could not select a better realtor. "

– Bob and Barbara Smith


" Scott & Susan Miller, 2014, BUYER CLIENTS Why We recommend Mary for buying or selling a home! • She was always available to show us homes and knows this market backward and forward. • Mary went top to bottom with suggestions for de-cluttering our home to make it ‘show’ ready. It turns out Mary was absolutely right with her suggestions. • Mary’s vision was amazing and directly contributed to our house selling so quickly and for full asking price. • Mary’s experience and networking enabled her to provide us with contractors, cleaners, and others who helped us get our home ready for sale and our new home ready to move into. She is truly one stop shopping when it comes to home sale or purchase. • Mary worked tirelessly and successfully to minimize the stress and make selling our home and buying our new home a joyful experience. My family and I could not be happier in our new home and would recommend Mary Farrell to anyone willing to listen."

– Scott and Susan Miller


" Recently, Mary Farrell was involved in selling my house in Alexandria, Va. I am writing this note because she did such an outstanding job that I would like to encourage others to use Mary as their real estate agent. Once I decided to sell my house, Mary played a key role in helping me determine the price. this was a difficult process since I had invested a substantial amount of money in buying and remodeling the house and I wanted to recoup every dollar. Mary convinced me that my expectations were unrealistic and guided me to a price appropriate for the market. The buyer actually agreed to pay the asking price but the appraiser for the mortgage company came in substantially less. Mary got the buyer to agree to another appraisal which came in higher and which the buyer agreed to pay despite having to make up the difference out of his own pocket. Without Mary's guidance and persistence, I m not sure the deal would have ever been consummated. Mary also did an amazing job staging my house for sale. While the house looked beautiful to me, Mary was able to convince me that in showing a house "less is more." She got a moving company to remove lots of furniture and "stuff" which I then stored.. She then worked with a decorator to meticulously rearrange the household belongings making the house much more attractive to a prospective buyer. Even I must admit that the house looked better. Mary also made sure that all the little things were done to make the house show better. She had a few repairs done, had a landscaper clean up the yard, hired someone to repaint parts of the house and basically took the responsibility to make sure that house was as presentable as possible. To complicate matters, I was traveling out of the country when much of the staging occurred and also when the house was sold. I was also out of the country on another trip until the day before the closing. Mary took on the responsibility of hiring people to deal with some of the issues the buyer's wanted fixed and amazingly agreed to arrange for the pickup and moving of the household goods. Without her help I w9uld not have been able to complete the close in a timely fashion nor be able to move into my new house on time. Mary is incredibly dedicated to serving her clients. She is willing to spend hours and hours to do the job in a superior manner and make sure her clients are satisfied. Mary is also a very nice person with whom to work. Mary did an amazing job and I highly and unreservedly recommend her. If you'd like to discuss any of this, I'd be glad to talk with you personally about my experience with Mary Farrell. "

– Randall Larrimore


" We are writing this letter to recommend Mary Farrell. Mary has assisted us in the purchase of two homes. The most recent home in a desirable part of Falls Church, Virginia. Mary provided every support at every step of the process which included finding the perfect home, placing an appropriate offer and directing us through a complicated closing process. Mary's skills and experience were especially apparent while constructing the offer for our new home. When multiple offers were presented, Mary advised us on our best options and helped us design a winning bid. We feel certain that Mary's expertise was crucial to our offer being accepted above the others. We believe in Mary Farrell. Her skills, experience and knowledge are what made it possible for us to own our wonderful new home."

" FROM BUYER CLIENT Frank Drendel: "The Best of the Best!""

– Frank Drendel


" FROM SELLER/BUYER CLIENTS Tim and Mary Wolfe 2012/2013: "McEnearney and, more specifically, Mary Farrell far exceeded our expectations. From the beginning, Mary was courteous, professional, competent, patient and responsive, this is truly a testament to Mary's tenacity an dedication, given how demanding and difficult I can be as a client. Mary found our dream home, then gave us a tough but realistic goal to rapidly prep, list, and sell our previous residence. In order to bring our follow-on purchase desire to fruition. We could not have asked for a better partner than Mary! We're customers for life!""

– Tim and Mari


" LANDLORD CLIENTS Kim and Rob P.: “It is our absolute pleasure to write this letter detailing why we thought Mary Farrell’s services were so outstanding and why we thought she was truly a delightful real estate professional. Our family was relocated for a long-term temp work assignment on very short notice. While the opportunity was extremely exciting, the timing produced the predictable anxiety, scrambling, hurry up and wait, last minute insanity that often can make even the more standard projects, truly challenging. When we decided to rent our place out, I got a pit in my stomach expecting it to be a truly arduous task. Instead, it ended up being the easiest, most pleasant, professional, and dare I say enjoyable part of our move! Mary’s experience was so evident from the first moment we met, andcontinued being our saving grace throughout the engagement. She was there every step of the way, from shine spraying our dining room floor for extra shine, to coordinating an inspection and last minute handy man fix ups. She found us renters in a blink of an eye. I think it was for rent for four or five days before she found us tenants! Through it all she was the epitome of well-heeled professionalism, humor, kindness, and reliability. She worked with our management company so effortlessly we started calling ourselves a “team.” Mary, thank you you from the bottom of our hearts.”"

– Kim and Rob. P


" We made the absolute right choice in selecting Mary Farrell to represent us in the sale of our home. From the first meeting to discuss strategy to the last meeting to close the sale everything Mary did was done with the utmost care and consideration. Mary’s advise was always thoughtful and focused on the result. No detail was left to chance. Her professionalism and knowledge of the market resulted in a full price offer after a very short time on the market! We would recommend Mary to anyone without reservation. She a true pleasure to work with. "

– Larry & Marellen


" Before I tell you about the wonderful experience I had having Mary Farrell as my realtor, let me give you some background information on why I chose Mary to sell my house. I lived in a partially gated community in Old Town Alexandria. I met Mary when I bought my house and I knew she was extremely knowledgeable about my particular housing development, Old Town Alexandria in general, and EYA, the developer who built my house. I stayed in my house for 14 years and I watched many neighbors come and go. I noticed that when Mary Farrell sold a house in my community it went for a fair price and it sold quickly. Neighbors who used other realtors had their houses on the market for many months, some for over a year without any success. Three houses extremely close to mine went for prices considerably under market value and they had realtors who were not Mary Farrell. When I asked Mary Farrell to be my realtor I told her "I picked you because I know you are going to do the job right. I don't want my house on the market for over a year and I want a good price for my house." Mary had a big challenge ahead of her. Three houses near mine had just recently sold below market and were dragging down the comps for my unit. It was also a "buyer's market" and many houses were for sale for months without any interest. I was going to wait until Spring to put my house on the market. Mary advised me to put it up for sale earlier, because there are serious buyers looking in the winter and there is less inventory to choose from. I followed her advice and put my house on the market in early December (which was counter intuitive for me.) Mary did an amazing marketing job and over 20 people came to the first open house and almost 30 brokers came to the brokers open. I had three contracts on my house in the month of December and I closed on my house within two months. Not only did I have a quick sale, my house sold for a higher price than any house my size had sold in over two years. A house is a huge investment. It is not something you want a novice or a discount broker to sell. Mary Farrell has the knowledge and the experience other agents do not have. I listened to Mary, even when the advice she gave was counter intuitive to me and was not advice commonly given by other agents. I am so happy I chose Mary to be my realtor and I am also glad that I listened to her advice. May you have the same success selling your home that I did selling mine. Diane MacDonald "

– Diane MacDonald


" Dear Mary, Now that we are finally settled in our new place, we want to thank you again for the absolutely extraordinary job you did in arranging the sale of our Old Town Village condo. Never in our wildest expectations did we anticipate it would be sold only two days after going on the market for our full asking price. Without questions, this happy outcome was the result of your advice about proper "staging", your sophisticated advertising of the property, and your keen sense of comparable property values. Seeing you in action was a tutorial on the best practices in real estate. Just as important to us, however, was getting to know you. You started out as an acquaintance with a fine reputation in your field and ended up as a dear friend to whom we are most grateful and look forward to seeing whenever we get back to Alexandria. "

– Ken & Kay


" FROM SELLER CLIENTS - Tom & Betsy Banner, 2010 Our experience with Mary selling our home was outstanding. She helped us stage our home and priced it right. We got top dollar and the home sold quickly right before thanksgiving. Mary was completely engaged until closing. She answered all our questions and kept us informed throughout the process. We would recommend her to anyone. "

– Tom and Betsy


" FROM SELLER CLIENTS – Rick & Julia Converse 2011 For any of you debating which real estate agent would be best for you, you won't find a better one than Mary. We spent a week interviewing several agents and Mary presented the best proposal by far. She laid out a superb strategy for selling our house including setting a fair market asking price, developing a superb marketing strategy, and building professional advertising campaign. The decision to go with Mary certainly paid off. Despite selling our home in a down economy and a slow time of the season, our house sold in only 3 days and at full asking price! But, that was not the end of Mary's dedication to us. When those issues that always seem to arise prior to closing, Mary went above and beyond to work them out for us. Her professionalism and expertise are second to none. Thank you Mary!"

– Rick and Julia Converse, Sellers


" Mary Farrell has been an outstanding realtor since we first met in 2007, before I bought my first home. Having had two realtors that did not have my best interests at heart, Mary was a breath of fresh air, taking the time to listen to what I was looking for, working within my price range, and providing sound advice. Buying my first home was a huge decision and a huge investment, but Mary helped me to navigate the process effortlessly. Mary does her research and is careful and methodical. She worked with the seller's realtor to negotiate a price within my price range and ensured that everything went smoothly through closing. Without any hesitation, I turned to Mary when I purchased my second home in 2010. I knew that she would work with me to find the perfect place and ensure that the process ran smoothly. Sure enough, we found a home better than I had even imagined. Initially it was just outside of my price range, but Mary worked with the seller's agent to help facilitate a deal that was right for both myself and the sellers. I am so thankful for having found such a great realtor, whom I now also call a great friend. I cannot speak highly enough about her and would recommend her to anyone in the market for a new home, from first-timers to seasoned homebuyers. I continue to recommend Mary to friends and colleagues in the market for a home, and am certain to have her as my realtor whenever I am ready to purchase my next home. "

– Meredith Jones, Buyer


" FROM A SELLER CLIENT Mary Lingo - 2011 I live in Phoenix Arizona and had a condo to sell in Arlington, VA. My dearest friend recommended to me Mary Farrell. She said she is the best and that she would help me through the process with care and understanding. She was right! Mary Farrell not only walked me through the process she assisted me with phone calls, e-mails, inspections and the closing I would say her communication with me was outstanding. She explained the process to me in such a way that I trusted in her ability to handle this long distance transaction. I highly recommend Mary because she not only is the best, but one that you can count on for immediate response to questions and performs in a highly professional way of performance in selling property. She got my condo sold in less that 30 days. Now, that speaks for Mary and her ability to, "Get it done"!"

– Beryl Brodsky & Thomas Fritz


" Our experience using McEnearney Associates, Inc.'s Agent Mary Farrell to buy our first single family home was outstanding and beyond any of our expectations. Mary gave us exceptional service over and above merely spamming us with hits from the MLS database. She was very flexible with her time including allowing us to look at homes in late evenings, or during the weekend. Mary easily understood our requirements and the type of house we wanted and did not try to push us into a home above our price target. When we found the house we wanted, she understood how to write a strong, and respectful bid to take full advantage of market conditions without appearing to “low-ball” the seller. Mary was very responsive while representing us through contract negotiations, working with the other agent and letting us know our options, not pressuring us to “make a deal” and being supportive of our decision to walk away if we had to. She helped us through closing, getting attorneys, inspections, and proposing alternatives for fixing discrepancies. She also gave us a wealth of home repair and improvement contractor referrals which we continue to use. We love our new home and can’t thank Mary enough for all her hard work and expertise. We recommend her to any of our friends that are looking for a home in the Washington Area, and will definitely come back to her when we move again. "

– Gregory & Rebecca Myers


" FROM SELLER CLIENTS Ted and Teresa Hoffman: "Mary Farrell is simply the best agent we have worked with in our experience of selling many homes over the years. She exceeded our expectations!""

– Ted and Teresa Hoffman


" Mary helped us find a wonderful investment property recently. Living overseas and only in town for a short time, it was a very intensive process which demanded from Mary a considerable time commitment and a good amount of flexibility. It also required Mary to listen and fully understand the type of property we were interested in so as to avoid wasting precious time. Not only did Mary deliver in this regard, she did so with an unmatched professionalism and attention to detail, always with a warm and pleasant demeanor. In short, Mary is outstanding and everything you would ever want in a real estate agent. We would recommend her without hesitation."

" FROM SELLER CLIENTS Rose & Bob Jordan - 2010 We want to express our deep thanks for doing such exceptional work in selling our Old Town Village home. We thought that you should know a little about our motivations, expectations, and feelings about the results of the sale. We selected you as our realtor for several reasons. We have known you as a neighbor for the past twelve years, which was important because we had a comfortable rapport with you. During that time, we also observed you as a realtor who knows how to move real estate. You communicate exceptionally well. Your news letter is concise and tells a story of product availability, price, and market duration. You helped us understand that selling was a business transaction even though we had emotional attachment to the home and OTV community. We know you to be a person of integrity through both your reputation and our experience. We expected you to do several things as a professional realtor. We wanted you to: Provide a market analysis with a recommended bottom-line range of sales prices. Sell the house optimally, without having it sit on the market for a lengthy time as we have observed with some other realtors. Develop a sound marketing plan and follow it aggressively. Stage our house appropriately to emphasize its merits. Market the house aggressively. Communicate with us honestly and often. The results were that: You sold our house within three weeks and at ninety-eight percent of our asking price. We went to settlement on time. All parties, including the buyer, were satisfied with the win-win transaction. You exceeded all our expectations. Mary, we are happy to endorse you as a first class realtor who delivers results efficiently, in a friendly manner, and with integrity.

Ruth Arnold – 2010 Sale of 1212 Roundhouse Lane As you know, my (former!) house at the above address recently was listed for sale with your Associate, Mary Farrell, and I am delighted to be reassured that I made an excellent choice by selecting her, and McEnearney Associates to represent me. A contract was signed within five days; of course, I was delighted with the speed in which a buyer was located, and with the ease in which the whole process seems to have moved along. Mary’s skill, support, and professionalism truly were commendable, and I should not hesitate to recommend her, and McEnearney Associates, to anyone I meet who may be considering a real estate experience.

" FROM SELLER CLIENTS Rolf & Ruthie Hille - 2010 Without a doubt, choosing Mary Farrell as our real estate agent was the best decision we could have made regarding the sale of our house. At our initial meeting, Mary was very knowledgeable and extremely well organized as she presented her strategy for selling our house. She provided us with information that helped us, as a team, decide on the right asking price for our house in a very challenging market. She also shared constructive ideas as to how we could best prepare our house prior to listing. Within a week, Mary and her design consultant, Susan Allison, worked quickly to stage our home to achieve the best possible marketing presentation. Our house looked great, and the pictures in our brochure and on the website were absolutely beautiful. During the short weeks that our house was on the market, Mary held several open houses (even with 20 inches of snow on the ground!). At the end of each open house, Mary called us to report on the number of guests who had previewed our home. Then within a couple of days, Mary shared with us feedback she had received. Additionally, after an agent had independently shown our home to a prospective buyer, Mary was very good about contacting that agent for feedback and sharing his/her comments with us. Even though it was a bit of a roller-coaster ride for us at times, Mary always remained constant, calm, and professional. We’re certain that holding open houses was not the only marketing tool in Mary’s “tool box”. Mary also used quite a number of internet sites to advertise. At one point, Mary shared with us a software program which allowed us to watch the internet activity (or hits) on our listing. That was very reassuring particularly on days when we thought no one was interested! In short, we found Mary to be very enthusiastic, honest, kind, and compassionate during the entire process of selling our house. We would definitely recommend Mary Farrell over any other agent!

" FROM A SELLER CLIENT…Fred Schlich - 2008 “Mary Farrell provided me … valuable combination of knowledge of the market and local community along with all the practical aspects of marketing, selling, and closing on the sale of my house. - She guided me in deciding the optimum house preparations for the market. - She was very helpful in coordinating all the details, both physical and administrative to allow a timely entry into the market - Her expertise in smoothly negotiating and finalizing a sales agreement gave me complete confidence in the certainty that the house would close as scheduled – which is exactly what happened “The bottom line was complete success. I sold my house during the most intense week of the worst financial crisis in the United States since the great depression, in only 4 days at full asking price – a price higher than any sale of comparable homes in the neighborhood. No one could ask for more”. "

" Tim & Mari Wolfe, 2014 SELLER CLIENT: McEnearney and, more specifically, Mary Farrell far exceeded our expectations. From the beginning, Mary was courteous, professional, competent, patient and responsive, this is truly a testament to Mary’s tenacity and dedication, given how demanding and difficult I can be as a client. Mary found our dream home, than gave us a tough but realistic goal to rapidly prep, list, and sell our previous residence. In order to bring our follow-on purchase desire to fruition. We could not have asked for a better partner than Mary! We’re customers for life!"

– Tim & Mari Wolfe


" Herve & Betsy Aitken, SELLER CLIENT, 2014: Mary Farrell is a phenomenal real estate agent. Her homes sell quicker and at a higher percentage of list price. Our home sold for 100 percent of list price in one day. We chose Mary to market and sell our home because she works for a full service Broker (McEnearney) that provides professional brochures, exceptional photos and virtual tours and is able to enlist her partner agents at McEnearney to "get the word out" to the world prior to first list day. Mary also is willing to list your property at your top, reasonable price. We strongly recommend you choose Mary!"

" We have been watching Mary successfully sell homes in Old Town Village for several years. Contracts secured within days of listing and at prices above, at, or close to the asking prices characterize her sales. We knew that when it came time for us to sell our Old Town Village home that she was the person we would turn to. Her strategy led to a sale on the first day of the home’s listing. Not only did the home sell quickly, her suggested upgrades to the property achieved a net increase in our proceeds from the sale. I would highly recommend Mary to anyone thinking about selling their home. "

" Mary Farrell is a real estate professional in a class of her own. Her reputation for achieving successful outcomes for her clients is well-deserved. She provided me with a great sales strategy, then implemented it with remarkable energy, enthusiasm, and attention-to-detail. She sold my house on its first day on the market at a price higher than I had envisioned. I could not have asked more from her and could not have gotten a better result. If you are buying or selling a home, you can rely on Mary to get to get the job done professionally. She will exceed your expectations and get you the result you are looking for. "
