"Our first time buying a home was a complete dream. Cory and I moved to Charlotte two and a half years ago so we were not completely familiar with the area and needed someone we could trust to help us through this process. After meeting Mary I felt completely at peace that she was our realtor and she proved us right in so many ways. Her quick thinking and speedy responses helped us land a home that was having multiple offers. We are so happy with our purchase and do not think we could have gotten this house without Mary. We are so grateful that she spent a lot of time looking into different options, sometimes at the last minute and being flexible to our needs. She is a great realtor and we are so glad we used her to help us find our first home.
Cory Dovel & Mary Philipps"
"Mary has an exceptional reputation. I have worked with her for years as she has handled real estate options with our incoming physicians. They have been so complimentary of her and, now, as a client, I understand completely their view. She was professional, calm, and constantly stayed in top of the process. We could not be happier.
Annette & Mike Nash"
"Mary is extremely knowledgeable and very well organized. The process could not have been easier. Listing to closing was 34 days.
Frank & Erin Schotthoefer"
"The process could not have been easier. We had multiple offers after 6 days of showing.

"I BOUGHT MY CONDO 2 YEARS AGO WITH MARY'S ASSISTANCE. WHEN I WANTED TO SELL IT, I THOUGHT OF MARY FIRST TO HELP ME! SHE IS AMAZING!!! THEN, SHE HELPED ME SELL ANOTHER PROPERTY A COUPLE MONTHS LATER. SHE IS SO HELPFUL, INFORMATIVE AND PATIENT. SHE IS FABULOUS. PERIOD.
"Mary was very knowledgable and experienced. We had some bumps in our buying process and Mary was so helpful and helped guide us through the process. She looked out for our best interests and we really felt that we could trust her! I would highly recommend her to others and will also plan to work with her in the future. She was a delight to work with!
Elliot & Amy McKee"
"Through 40+ years, my husband and I have moved 8-9 times, and we have assisted our three daughters with their numerous moves. We have probably dealt with 20 real estate agents, and Mary Schurr is by far the best. She was knowledgeable and competent and helpful in ways far beyond our expectations. She returns phone calls in a timely way. She makes excellent recommendations about products and providers. She is a calming influence in a less than calm experience. We highly recommend Mary Schurr to anyone who is looking for an intelligent and honest real estate agent.
Steve & Joanne Smith"
"Mary is the best realtor ever. She is reliable, prompt and clear with communications, thorough, knowledgeable, and an excellent sounding board. She worked hard in contacting and meeting with contractors to get estimates prior to closing. I could not imagine going through the buying process without her.
Vipul & Kindra"
"An overall very pleasant experience. Mary Schurr was informative, personable, and quick with responses. I have no complaints and would recommend her to others.
"Mary is one of the best realtor out there. I travel a lot for work and was unable to meet with various entities to close on this house. Mary went above and beyond to make sure everything was taken care of. Mary's knowledge and expertise is invaluable when purchasing a home. This is my second purchase with Mary and I would only use her for my future purchases. I have recommended Mary to my friends and Family.
"Mary was an absolute wonder to work with. Mary helped us find our first home and we couldn't be happier. It took us quite some time to find the right home but Mary never let us feel discouraged. She was there every step of the way, going above and beyond. I was so glad a friend of ours recommended Mary. The only part I hated about the home buying process was saying goodbye to Mary!
Matt & Amy"
"We were impressed with how thorough Mary is from the very first day. After measuring and assessing our home (a step that other realtor's skip), she came back with an impressive presentation. We decided to go with her even though her price wasn't the highest because of the impeccable analysis she did on our home and the market. And, true to form, she stayed on top of every detail throughout the entire process. That leads me to how responsive and present Mary was. From late night calls, texts and emails, to showing up for (multiple) inspections, she was always there, and very prepared, which helped expedite things and put us at ease on many occasions. I think the only real negative mark against Mary is that she suggested a pre-inspection, which turned out to do more harm than good, but that may have just been our experience.
When it came to find a new house, Mary gave us access to a portal, which allowed us to do much of the searching for a home ourselves. When we found a few we liked, she'd take us there for a visit. Easy peasy. When we decided on the house we wanted, Mary was very helpful in terms of putting together our offer and negotiating the price. We felt a little pushed around by the sellers during the due diligence period, in which case it might have been helpful for Mary to not be sooo nice. But, we got to close with virtually no real problems, and now we have a beautiful new home, thanks a great deal to Mary!

We only wish she'd been more of a "bulldog" on negotiating the closing date, and some of the specific repairs we requested during the due diligence period. We felt a little pushed around by the sellers during that time. However, we got to close with virtually no real problems, and now we have a beautiful new home, thanks a great deal to Mary.

"She was always ahead of us. Trips to see houses were well planned out, and she always made time to see a house again if we needed to. When we put an offer in, she was on top of everything.
Jeff and Tina"
"Our experience with Mary Schurr was fantastic! We greatly respect and appreciate all of her time and attention. We feel so lucky to have met her and had the opportunity to work with her while we were moving to Charlotte. She helped us in ways that were above and beyond the "call of duty", even after the closing she remained in frequent contact and offered her help in many ways (waiting for carpet installers, inspecting, references...). She made us feel as if she cared just as much as we did throughout the entire process. Being an out of town client, that meant the world to us. Mary made us feel as if we were her only client, even though we knew she had a full schedule. We are grateful to Mary for not only finding our home, but making the process a simple one.
Jennifer and Bart"
"Mary Schurr is at the forefront of dedication to her clients. As a first time home buyer, she walked me through every step of the buying process, which enabled me to make a more informative and confident decision. Each step was handled with the utmost professionalism and integrity. No question was too small, and I always felt that my needs were put first. She is generous with her time, and always accommodating to the client's schedule. I still keep in touch with Mary today because she is resourceful and knowledgeable, and always happy to recommend any type of home service that I may need.
"By working with Mary, I was able to get my house quickly on the market and get a contact offer within 3 weeks and a sale finalized within 2 months. The photography and videography were professionally done and a key to getting interested parties to schedule home walkthroughs. She understood the market specific to my neighborhood and did a tremendous amount of research to ensure we were offering the right price. After the offer was negotiated and signed, Mary was extremely active dealing with appraisals, inspections, repairs, etc. and kept me apprised of all the impacts and provided great advice in order to make the right decisions. I highly recommend Mary for her knowledge, professionalism, and care.
"Mary Schurr was our agent on the sale of our home in Charlotte in the winter of '09. She sold our home in 5 days in a terrible housing climate and down economy selling in the month of January!!!! She had back up offers as well. The marketing materials were incredible and very professional. When she sent us the photographs we were amazed. They were gorgeous! They looked like a designer layout from a magazine. It made all the other listing pictures look amateurish.
We referred to Mary as our "Agent" but through our closing process she became more of a rock and steadying force to deal with a really difficult buyer. If it was not for her skills and knowledge of North Carolina's codes, regulations, lending laws, and extensive contacts in Charlotte we would probably have walked away from the sale. Her steady temper and great deal of research and follow up on a daily and sometimes hourly basis, kept us going. We made it to closing with the original buyers.
Kurt and Jennifer"
"Within moments of meeting Mary Schurr we knew we had picked the best Realtor to sell our home. From start to finish, we had the utmost confidence that she was consistently one step ahead of the game. She always made us feel that there was nothing too big or too small for her to help us with, or handle for us outright...even days after closing! Mary provided us with above par research and expert advice to help us determine a fair yet competitive asking price for our home. Most importantly, stressing that first impressions are "key". Mary ensured that when our home hit the market it showed perfectly both in brochures and online with the most professional photography and videography. Her level of service, professionalism, and attention to detail is in a class by itself. She is dependable, prepared, articulate, and personable. We truly believe that if Mary was not our Realtor, our home would not have sold as quickly (in one week!) and that the entire process would not have been as smooth and stress-free!
Sam and Renee"
"After having our house listed with 2 other agents for over a year, hiring Mary was the best thing we could have done! Her professionalism, knowledge, and marketing expertise got our home under contract in 30 days. We could not have asked for more out of an agent. You can rest easy knowing Mary will get the job done!
Mark and Karen"
"I enjoyed working with Mary during the process of listing and selling my house. Her attention to detail, her organizational skills, and her promptness to respond made for a superior working relationship. It is Mary's creative approach to real estate that allows me the privilege of recommending her.
"I wanted to express a strong endorsement of Mary Schurr as a Realtor for the new hires. We recently purchased a home and have been working with Mary since I first interviewed here in Spring of 2008.
She practices a high level of professionalism and made herself available beyond our expectations. She demonstrated a high knowledge base of the local market and exceeded my expectations with her customer service.
I will use her again for future transactions and highly recommend her to be an initial contact for future hires.
Chris and Kate (part of email written to Human Resources Dept)"
"When I was recruited here you set me up with Mary Schurr. I wanted to let you know that since our recruitment, nearly two years ago until yesterday when we closed on our home, she has been nothing but superb and always flexible with her time given my often bad availability due to the practice needs.
I wanted to tell you that she should absolutely be recommended for future recruits without question. She goes above and beyond any other Realtor I've worked with in the past.
Jason and Rachel (part of email written to Human Resources Dept)"
"Mary was amazing! Highly knowledgeable, always available, and always having my best interest at heart. She is phenomenal!
"5 stars is not nearly enough to express how great we feel about Mary Schurr and the fantastic work she did for us. Mary is very honest, dedicated, incredibly knowledgeable, considerate, and consistently will go the extra mile again and again. She is also very patient and understanding. Buying and selling a home can be very stressful at times, but Mary made the whole experience an absolute joy. We were very happy when she sold our house, but it was also a little bittersweet as we knew that would be the end of our working relationship with her. That is how good Mary Schurr is!!!
Gene and Carol"
"I can't say enough good things about Mary. Mary came highly recommended as the best in the business. There is no question in my mine. We followed her advice and used her recommended contractors to repair, paint, stage, and create a brochure created by a professional photographer. Mary put the brochure online on Tuesday, but said no showings until Saturday. Our neighbors said we were asking way too much for the house. Mary reassured us the house would sell close to the asking price. We had 31 showings on Saturday and Sunday. We got a call Saturday evening while out to dinner saying the first couple to look at the house had presented an offer $7,500.00 over the asking price. We did some "high fives" and ordered a very good bottle of wine. The deal went through without a hitch. Sorry for the length of the recommendation, but as I said, I just can't say enough good things about Mary. I would definitely recommend her for the buy or sell side of any home. Mary is a true professional with great knowledge of all aspects of marketing real estate, but more importantly SHE CARES.
Tom and deAnna"
"Mary Schurr was such a help to us! She researched neighborhoods, schools, and shopping centers. She knew what a family with small children needed, even better than we did. She had such a great eye for all details and helped us in every stage of the process. We especially appreciated her quick email responses, follow up calls, and attention to detail. We can't imagine a better experience and will use Mary for any real estate needs in the future! 5 Stars!! Thank you!
Nick and Kristin"
"Mary was absolutely incredible. From day one I knew I would be happy with my home. Everyone should strive to be like Mary. Difficult to give her justice with this questionnaire. Should be a perfect 10 down the board.
"Incredible experience that was personal, genuine, & authentic. :)
"Mary really is the best, very upfront, always knew what to expect, made the process easy and pretty much stress free. Mary always went way above what is expected. Thank you.
"Mary always helped us see how we could use each house we looked at and always provided all the information we needed to make a good decision. We LOVE our new home!

"Mary is a very professional, friendly, hardworking, and knowledgeable agent. She certainly went beyond the call of duty for us.

"My wife and I moved to Charlotte in the summer of 2013. We were looking to rent for a time period and look for potential homes during that time while we learnt more about the commutes, school districts, neighborhoods, housing market, etc. We had never owned a home before and this was a new process, we thought would be quite stressful!
We learnt about Mary Schurr through my current employer, and several co-workers at my work place have had the opportunity to work closely with her and have been very happy with the homes (and the price) they were able to get. We heard fantastic things about her, and so for us it was an easy decision to work with Mary. We are so happy we did.
Mary is honest, kind, polite, courteous, pleasant, easy going and positive. To complement these attributes, she is extremely diligent, detail oriented and well versed with the real estate market. She has been working with clients for many years and is very experienced with the current and past housing market in Charlotte. Most of all, we felt she was very laid back and was never aggressive when recommending any particular home or neighborhood.
Our home search lasted six months, but Mary gave us access to all homes on the MLS listings many months in advance, so that we could learn the market better. Our initial search was broad and Mary encouraged us to see different homes with different characteristics and we then determined what specifics of the home would be a "must have", and what would be "desirable" and what attributes would be a "deal breaker". For a first-time buyer, this was critical. After being educated and learning more about different home designs, we were then very selective in the home, neighborhood, school district and commutes that we were looking for. That made our search very specific.
Mary then tailored our search to our needs and drove us to all homes herself. She would pick us up from our apartment and drop us back home. Most of our search days were on weekends. She never did push us to see any specific home. She also emailed us about new constructions and introduced us to several builders. After learning about the nuances of building vs buying a home, we felt comfortable with our decision to buy a home rather than build.
Mary worked with us tirelessly. We always felt she was "our" agent, and never did we ever feel that she wanted to push a deal through. Needless to say, Mary worked long hours and evenings communicating with sellers and their agents. She also helped us set up appointments and meetings that would work with our busy schedules. There was a lot of hard work "behind the scenes". Mary was present for every meeting and every inspection.
And boy did we find the house we loved!! And at a great price, in a great location, great school district. Although there is no perfect home, we feel that the home we bought is the perfect home for us.
We recommend Mary highly to anyone looking for a home. Although we initially thought the process would be stressful, it was made as easy and as stress-free as possible. If we would have to go through the process again, we would not change a single thing. Mary- we were extremely lucky to have you on our side. All the positive recommendations we heard about you are absolutely true. THANK YOU!!
Omar and Ashwini"
"Mary was amazing! We moved 3 hrs away and she was so helpful with all the details, repairs, meeting people when we couldn't, etc. She also helped with dealing with my husband's company. She is so organized & knowledgeable, she's the best!! We are forever grateful!!
JD and Jennifer"
"Mary was truly wonderful and helped us every step of the way. She is very knowledgeable and if she was unsure about something we asked, she found out the answer and immediately got back to us. She assisted my husband in looking for existing homes prior to my arrival in the area. Once we decided to build, she still took the time to come to every single appointment we had. It was such as pleasure working with her and we are so grateful for her assistance.
Justin and Amanda"
"Mary was amazing! I am more than pleased and plan to pass her name to everyone. She is an asset to her company.
"Mary Schurr was an outstanding Realtor for my wife and I during the sale of our home. I would use her again, and recommend her, without question, to anyone in need of real estate services. She was a joy to work with and a true professional.
Herman and Teri"
"Mary goes above and beyond for her clients. She is extremely knowledgeable, professional, and cares for her clients. She took the time to get to know us as a family and helped us find out dream home. Eighteen months later due to unforeseen circumstances she helped us sell our home. She retained all the original documents and made listing easy. She thought of everything and followed through. She sets the standard!!
Luis and Dana (Listing)"
"We would never consider recommending or utilizing anyone other than Mary. Her level of attention, professionalism, and follow through exceeded our expectations and prior experiences.

"Mary was an excellent Realtor and resource to us during our home buying process. We would recommend her without reservations to others.
