These guys are great. They think of every detail that needs to be covered. We found this house on Memorial Day weekend and Mary Ellen worked on it for us from a remote location. She even helped sell our own house over the 4th of July weekend. They go above and beyond.

The Web page with virtual staging was very impressive. Even more impressive was the number of clients that the Getz team was able to tap into! The house had several offers the first day on the market, and we closed just a few weeks later.

Mary Ellen & Joel were great! From day 1 they walked us through the sales process and what to expect. They were always just a phone call, text or email away. I would highly recommend their services.

I was about to put my house on the market as For Sale By Owner. I talked to Mary Ellen about it and she told me the benefits of using an agent. She had so many affordable resources to update my home the way it needed to be and we still walked away with money to use for the down payment of our new home. Mary Ellen was very organized and ALWAYS available when we needed her. We sold our house for over the amount we were going to list it at going FSBO. All negotiation was done through Mary Ellen and she was able to get us exactly what we wanted. Joel came over to take pictures for the website. He, like his wife, is extremely professional and detailed. He told us what to expect from that point on in the process and didn't leave us guessing. I'm a very satisfied client. Less ... More

Purchased my first home with Denies after she was referred to me by a coworker. The process was smooth and everything I wanted with the home (blinds, garage door opener etc) she was able to work in for me. I would highly recommend her as your agent to anyone.

To whom it may concern: There are lots of realtors out there and it is hard to know what sets them apart. Let me share some of our experience. We were given a list of realtors to choose from and chose two well known companies. One is almost a household name in Southlake and Century 21 Mike Bowman was another well known name with great presence. We had the opportunity to interview agents from each company and this was what we found: ? From start to finish Mary Ellen Getz was prompt, prepared, responsive, attentive to detail, and knowledgeable about the market. The same could not be said of her competitor. We never felt the other realtor would act in our best interests and we were disappointed by their whole approach to earning our business. ? Mary Ellen Getz did her research and suggested a list price well over the other agent?s proposal. We were skeptical because it is easy for a realtor to come up with a number a buyer wants to hear, rather than a realistic market price. She took it on the chin, did more comparatives and successfully demonstrated that the price was achievable. ? Her marketing was professional and she provided staging services to make the home appeal to prospective buyers. ? We received 2 offers within 4 days of listing. 2 others were close to offering but backed off from a bidding war! ? The property appraised at our contract price, some $75,000 higher than the other agent recommended as list price! ? Mary Ellen Getz is hardworking. She set up our house for showings when we were out of town, and she was tenacious in follow through, for example making sure the appraiser understood what set our home apart from others. We are demanding sellers and expect a lot from a real estate professional. We are happy to say that Mary Ellen met all our needs and we wish her success in the future. Less ... More

Mary Ellen helped me start buying a home from the very start. We began with looking at new construction and ended up going with DR Horton. Mary Ellen was great! She was involved in every step of the process from signing the contract to begin building to even going to the design gallery with me. Any questions I had she made sure they were answered in great detail and that I understood everything. Joel even came to the final walk thru on the house and was very helpful. Really enjoyed working with these two excellent realtors and they would definitely be my first choice if I decided to move again or refer to someone. Less ... More

The Getz family team provided a great experience selling our house. Being out of state, I was concerned about how we would be able to get everything done remotely. Mary Ellen helped enormously in getting the house prepared for sale, on the market quickly and then sold. She is very responsive and has a thorough support staff to help make selling your house as easy as possible. Solidly customer focused, I would sell another house with Getz in a heartbeat.

I contacted Mary Ellen not knowing for sure if we would list our house or not. I was just wanting to speak with someone. Mary Ellen told me how motivated her and her husband were which is exactly what we were looking for. We decided to list with her. She came in telling us what she thought we should list at, being very aggressive. We listed our house and had a offer within a couple of days. Her husband is the one who came in to take pictures and build a site for us. They are a great team and I would recommend them anytime! Less ... More

We listed our home with the Getz team in summer of 2013. After a very professional consultation, Mary Ellen was kind enough to give us some pointers that would help us sell our home. She showed us comparable properties, and gave us sound advice about the price we could expect to receive. We completed the requested changes to the home and listed. That same day we had a showing, and almost every day thereafter. The Getz team gathered feedback from potential buyers, and helped us to address any concerns that the buyers had about the property. After only three short weeks, our home was sold. I would advise anybody to seek out the Getz team if they are looking to buy property in the Fort Worth area. Their professionalism, ethics, and punctuality are only surpassed by the outstanding level of understanding and support for both buyer and seller. Less ... More

House was under contract in a week! While other comparable homes in my neighborhood sat unsold, mine was scooped up in a week. In fact, there were at least three offers placed following countless walk-throughs. I give credit to Mary Ellen for knowing exactly how to price my home, Joel for taking flattering photos, and an organized office staff for keeping the traffic coming. Mary Ellen knows her stuff. In fact, I?m convinced had we used a lesser experienced agent ? we would not have fared as well financially. From the beginning our goal was simply to walk away not owing anything. Given our limited time in the home and the market troubles over the last several years, that was ? in our minds ? a best case scenario. Still Mary Ellen strived for better and in the end we got full appraisal value and a little extra money in our pockets. Mary Ellen is easy to work with, she listens, she has incredible patience and I get the sense she really wants what?s in the best interest of her clients. Mary Ellen remained unshakable throughout the process and handled any of the expected snags promptly and flawlessly. I can?t imagine calling upon anyone else should I ever need to sell a home again. Thanks Mary Ellen, Joel and Peggy!!! Less ... More

My husband and I couldn't have asked for a better team in the process of selling our home. Joel took excellent pictures of our home, I was very impress. Mary Ellen was very helpful in providing us all the information we would need, explaining the process for the sell. She advised us on how to get our home ready for the sell and what we should expect during the showing of our home. Mary Ellen and Joel did such a good job of posting our home, that we had people interested in the our home on the first day it was posted. Our home sold within 2 weeks of showing and that was due to the great job Mary Ellen and Joel did. Less ... More

Mary Ellen did a fantastic job. Our situation was unique. Not only did she handle our transaction she also handled the transaction of the home we were moving into and the home that those sellers were moving into. It took some intricate planning to coordinate the sale and purchase of three houses and she was able to pull it off without a hitch. She is knowledgeable of the market and what buyers wanted to see. Mary Ellen told us our home would go quickly and she was 100% correct. The first day our home on the market we had three offers. Even after a horrible appraisal from the buyers appraiser, she was able to negotiate a price that was acceptable by all. The Moseley's We highly recommend The Getz Team for your real estate needs.

Selling or buying a house is a very daunting endeavor. It has been a great pleasure working with Mary Ellen and her husband Joel. Mary Ellen is very responsive- quick to return email and phone calls and super-fast at answering any questions. She really understands the local neighborhoods and knows what is important to each customer. Mary Ellen uses technology to complete the transaction which makes it very easy and convenient to get the paperwork done. I would highly recommend them if you are trying to find a Realtor. Less ...

After finding a home for sale on Zillow and being unable to get in touch w/our previous realtor, I clicked the button to "send more info." Irina Mitchell with the Getz Team was the first to respond & boy were we grateful! Irina was extremely prompt in setting up an appointment for us to see the home, and being a foreclosure she was quick to assure us of her knowledge & expertise in that particular field. Irina submitted our offer the following morning and by the next evening we had accepted their counter-offer. With Irina's tremendous patience & calm, easy-going demeanor she walked us smoothly through the process in working with the VA to close on our new home, which we managed to do in a record 32 days from the first day when we met Irina and saw the home for the first time! Irina was always at our disposal, whether it was answering questions about a VA foreclosure, or getting us access to the house (on multiple occasions) to take various measurements. Irina kept my anxious nerves at bay and was very good at assuring us that this dream home of ours was indeed ours! Irina remained in constant communication often sending me text updates as late as 9 and 10 o'clock at night. Irina Mitchell personally made me grateful that our previous realtor hadn't returned my phone call, and I would recommend Irina and the Getz Team any day of the week! Less ... More

After only two days on the market, thanks to Mary Ellen and Joel, we received an offer on our home. Within one month, the house was sold. Mary Ellen told me the process would go faster than I expected, but I never thought it would sell so quickly. By following their instructions, we were able to close early and received our asking price. The Getz Team is extremely professional, courteous, and competent. If I were to sell in the future, I would seek them out again and I highly reccomend them for anyone planning to list their home. Thanks for making our move a smooth and enjoyable transition!

To say that the Getz team is exceptional is an understatement! They knew exactly what would appeal to buyers of our home and marketed our home beautifully. We had a contract to sell our property in 6 days! Since we had to move quickly Mary Ellen and Joel literally worked day and night to find a property that fit our family and we are those "picky buyers". We would not even consider buying or selling again without the Getz team. They were professional and prepared in every aspect of both our selling and purchasing transactions. Less ... More

They were able to give great direction on pre-listing prep that needed to be done to the house. They were very knowledgeable regarding comps in our area and helped us set an initial asking price that was aggressive, but also left us some negotiating room. Our MLS listing was up the next day and we sold our house to the first family that looked at it for full asking price! Our house was sold within 18 hours of the MLS publishing. Incredible. They also helped us find our new home even though it wasn?t in their immediate area. I would highly recommend the Getz Team. -Bob Stegall Less ... More

Mary Ellen, Joel and their team handled our sale wonderfully. Mary Ellen brought in an expert home stager that made a huge difference for us. We thought we had the house set up nicely but after the stager finished rearranging things there was a dramatic improvement. Without Mary Ellen's knowledge in this aspect of the sale I believe it would have taken considerably longer to sell and possibly at a lower price. To sum our experience with The Getz Team up, I would have to say they provided the best service from a realtor my wife and I have ever had. This is saying a lot since there are three real estate brokers in my immediate family (in different states though). I would not hesitate to call of Mary Ellen's team if we ever decide to sell again.
