Mavis and I first met when our children were in the same elementary school. She ran the school fundraiser and did a tremendous job, honoring her commitments, even when she had many other demands on her time, and always staying upbeat. I liked her commitment to seeing a job done well.

Mavis is completely reliable and professional; she works hard for you; she is extremely knowledgeable and efficient; she is direct and honest; she has high integrity. Her positive energy has a calming effect on a potentially-nervous seller or buyer.

I have sold three houses with Mavis—in the Claremont District, Rockridge, and Montclair—and each time, we sold for over the asking price. When selling your home, Mavis prices it competitively and she makes sure the house shows to its best advantage. I also bought two houses with Mavis (before moving into the third with my current husband). She understands what you are looking for as a buyer and doesn’t waste your time showing you homes that won’t work for you.

She has access to excellent support people who are completely trustworthy, whether it’s the home inspector, painter, gardening crew, window washers, hauler, or mortgage broker. Mavis is respected by her colleagues and she negotiates effectively your behalf.

Selling or buying a home can be very stressful, but Mavis makes it a manageable process.
