We just recently purchased a second home in the Lake Almanor Country Club area. As our main residence is in Sacramento we had to rely heavily on our real estate agent (who was actually a referral from my mother who practices real estate in Sacramento). Coming from a family of real estate professionals I KNOW what differentiates a great agent from an average agent—and Mary is a GREAT agent! She was (and still is, for that matter!) incredibly attentive and responsive. We never had to wait for updates; Mary was on top of every detail every step of the way and kept us thoroughly informed. My husband and I now consider her not only our very reliable agent but also our friend. She comes with a five star recommendation from us!
