Helped me buy home
We contacted Mary about a HUD home listed in a local real estate magazine. Mary set up an appointment the next day to show us the house. She was very knowledgeable about the area codes, fees, resale climate, and average sale price of homes in the area. There were only a few questions she didn't know for sure; but quickly obtained the information. Once Mary knew our needs and wishes; she directed us to a quick moving deal on a Freddie Mac house. We took advantage of the opportunity, closed and were in the house within three weeks. Beyond being very professional; Mary and her staff are caring and really go out of their way to make the home buying experience as pleasant as possible.. Less ... More

Mary Derrick helped me and my wife purchase a retirement home. We have our mother living with us, and Mary was able to find a perfect solution for all three of us. We were also very pleased with her office staff and keeping us posted on the steps along the path to closing. Mrs Derrick has been a broker for a long time. She has a lot of experience. She isn't pushy. She is thorough and helpful. Call Mrs Derrick if you need real estate assistance!

Mary sold our historic country home in Johnston, S.C. There were obstacles along the path, but Mary was able to work with the lender to clear the underwriting requirements and with the people making repairs to get everything taken care of. We were kept informed frequently throughout the process, and the closing went smoothly, with no surprises. I would definitely recommend Mary to both buyers and sellers.

Mary sold my mother's home in South Carolina. Since we live out of state, Mary not only handled all of the showings, negotiations, various inspections and coordinating with the attorney and lender, but we also had repairs that needed to be made. Since we were not there, Mary handled all the details of the repairs that needed to happen-from getting bids for the work to making sure the work was done properly. We were very pleased with Mary and her office. We highly recommend Mary-she get's the job done and is always goes out of her way to help. Less ... More

I moved to SC from Iowa. I preferred to live closer to a city so Mrs. Derrick helped me purchase a condo very close to the Savannah River in North Augusta. I was pleased with the constant communication from contract to closing, and the service provided by Mrs. Derrick and her office.

Having owned 5 homes in the past, but renting for the last 17+ years, I decided to look into the possibility of once again becoming a homeowner. I had a number of realtors in the Aiken area show me listings they had. I was rather surprised and disappointed in what appeared to me to be their lack of knowledge of their properties and lack of enthusiasm in showing them. Even more appalling was that they acted as if they were in a hurry to get rid of me ---they displayed no interest in finding out anything about me, what I liked or disliked, what I was interested in, or what my concerns were. I had almost decided to stop looking, but I ran across one of Mary's listings and decided to view it. Mary was eager to help, and seemed interested in showing me the property. She was very knowledgeable about the house, but more importantly, took the time to find out my interests. She truly make an effort to fairly represent both the seller and me, the potential buyer. During the entire home buying process, Mary was very supportive and helpful. she kept me informed of the stratus of the myriad details and hurdles that inevitably come up during this process, and, more importantly, she helped surmount them to ensure a rather smooth and painless journey along the home buying highway. In the end, I did purchase the house and am now a happy homeowner enjoying my new home. A large part of this successful endeavor was Mary Derrick; her professionalism, knowledge of her properties, and her interest in both the seller and the potential buyers are a combination not often found in realtors. I recommend her very highly. Less ... More

Mary and her crew are beyond reproach. I bought a HUD house and was told it would be a long, terrible, drawn out combination of problems. I did it anyway since I've always liked a challenge. I found it to be quite the opposite, mostly because Mary and Allyson (her office manager) insulated me from issues. ANY questions I had were answered IMMEDIATELY. They have so much experience that they would know the questions before I even asked them. The headaches I incurred were from Wells-Fargo, not HUD or Derrick Realty. Mary took care of problems before they became issues! Things I didn't even know about! She is kind, considerate and an all around great person. She didn't show me things out of my price range or below my price range. She knew what I was looking for and found it! She didn't waste any time (mine or hers). I HIGHLY RECOMMEND DERRICK REALTY! I've already recommended her to others and would do so again without ANY hesitation. If you've ever bought a house before you know the problems that will arise. If you haven't, go with Derrick Realty and you'll never have to know the problems that will cause you to tear your hair out and leave you sleepless. I just can't say enough good things about this office. I wish her and her crew all the best and Thank You for getting me in my home at a great price and a pretty quick process. P.S....Aiken needs to be added to your service areas :) Less ... More

Mary Derrick and her team of Real Estate professionals helped us find the right buyers for two properties that we had foreclosed on. Both properties were located out of our normal operating area, and Derrick Realty helped us find contractors to help with the issues of getting them ready to show. It was always a pleasure to work with them. We trust the people at Derrick Realty and we consider them as our friends.

Purchased a home in March 2012 in Aiken,SC Mary was very helpful during our search for a home in South Carolina. She was so patient and professional. She got to know my husband and I so well that she knew just the type of home and lcatiion that we would like and she assisted us in everyway. We appreciated that she was very accessible to us when we had questions or concerns. Mary's staff was equally knowledgeble, helpful and pleasant. We would recommend Mary to anyone buying or selling thier home. Less ... More

Worked with Mrs. Derrick in the purchase of a historical home. I consider myself to be a pretty demanding client and Mrs. Derrick was always available for me and my family to make sure that we were represented honestly and fairly. I would highly recommend Mrs. Derrick in the assistance of either buying or selling a home. I do not think that you will find anyone more capable in listening to someones needs more then her.

Mary was an extremely helpful and professional realtor. We were very comfortable with her level of expertise and her guidance and knowledge of the area, especially since we knew nothing about South Carolina. We were not afraid to ask her the "dumb" questions. She treated us with respect. She is also blessed to have a very competent and professional staff that went over and above for us. Overall, we would highly recommend Mary Derrick to anyone needing the best realtor in the area.
