Mary is a tremendous resource for anyone looking to buy a home in Downers Grove. She has lived in the area for many years and utilized her knowledge of the area to help us identify the ideal location for our family. Mary also has a great understanding of all phases of a transaction. We always felt we were in good hands despite a few obstacles that came up along the way, which Mary helped us to navigate. Thanks Mary!!

Mary was incredible; the best! She helped me sell my home and buy a condominum. Her professionalism and knowledge really made the difference. I needed a one or two referrals for work to be done related to my sell and she knew just the right people to help me. I'd definitely recommend Mary.

I have worked with Mary for both buying and selling my home and she was excellent. She was very knowledgeable about the area, comps, and most importantly she didn't try to push me into anything I wasn't comfortable with. I have a lot of trust for Mary and would have continued to work with her if I hadn't moved out of the area. Highly recommended!

Mary provided solid actionable feedback on what I needed to do to sell my house at the price I wanted to get for it. She went out of her way to help and accommodate my circumstances. Solid reliable professional. If I move back to Chicagoland I'll use her to find a place.

I needed to buy a condo long distance, so Mary needed to be my eyes and ears, as well as work with my son and a good friend who were also my eyes and ears. She was extremely cooperative and patient with the process, always getting back to me promptly and willingly showing properties to my friend and family. I highly recommend her.

This was our first time where we were both buying and selling a property. Mary was there for us all the way! She was always available for questions and was very honest. It is very obvious that Mary is experienced but at the same time she always remembered that we are not and this was a big deal to us. Nothing can be more frustrating than when you are in a stressful time in your life and the professional helping you just acts like it's a day to day occurrence as it is for them. Mary never made is feel like we weren't important. We are so glad we found Mary! Less ... More

Mary was very helpful and personable. She researched the ownership history of the properties I visited, and was very familiar with housing in Downers Grove. I believe that her experience in the area was an amazingly helpful asset. She responded quickly to any and all inquires I had regarding various aspects of the buying process. A pleasure to work with!

Mary was great throughout the process of buying our new home. She was very knowledgeable and responsive. Our closing had to be postponed when damage was found during our pre-closing inspection. Mary helped keep the process on track until all issues were resolved. We really appreciated her help and strongly recommend her.

Mary helped us find a home in the Naperville area. She is personable, easy going and a pleasure to work with. She was accessible and responded quickly to any question that we had. The people that she recommended (lawyer, lender, contractor, home inspector) were all great! I highly recommend her as she helped me find a home that we love and can help you work with the right people for a successful closing.

As novices to the western suburbs, Mary did a tremendous job finding, negotiating, and purchasing our new home. We found our home from the 2nd house she showed us! She did it by truly understanding our needs and the market. We could n't be happier with Mary and our new home.

Mary was excellent! We had 15 showings scheduled for the first three days the property was listed but had to cancel a few as we had a contract by the end of day two. Final sales price was 98.9% of the asking price. We highly recommend her!

Mary was extremely helpful and caring through the entire sale process. We had worked with her in 1999 to find the home in IL and went to her when we were ready to sell and leave the state. During a difficult time in the housing market, Mary worked very hard to find potential customers. She has a strong relationship with many realtors and that helped finding the right buyer. She is one quality person.

Mary was wonderful to work with from our first phone call, which she immediately returned, even while out of town! She has excellent insight to the market and immediately knew what we were looking for. We were so happy when the second home we walked into felt right for us. She guided us through a somewhat difficult negotiation process and shared our excitement on closing day, complete with taking a photo of us in front of our new home during our final walk through. Mary is experienced, knowledgeable, responsive and savvy. We are so happy to have worked with her. Less ... More

We had decided to buy a condo and then list our house for sale. Mary Braatz found the ideal condo for us. She showed us several units in three suburbs. She was always professional and pleasant. She was punctual for the showings, low pressure, but helpful. To sell our house we had wanted to hire a realtor from our neighborhood, but we decided to hire Mary Braatz to list our home even though her office was in another town. She was thorough. She priced our house well. Her internet description of our house was well written. The 25 photos of our home were well done. Our home sold the second weekend in a mini-bidding war in July 2013. Thanks, Mary. We want you to represent us on our next real estate venture. It was a pleasure to work with you. Less ... More

Mary has actually helped me sell two homes. Both times she was patient and informative to help me understand the process. With her help, I achieved the price goal I needed. Her knowledge of this industry shows her years of experience. I would have used her to purchase but I bought out of state. She even answered any questions regarding that. I recommend her to sell, buy or even use for commercial. I am currently using her to sell a commercial property too.

After interviewing 3 realtors, I chose Mary Braatz because of her vast knowledge of the Downers Grove market. She provided me with an informative market analysis for the property, was quick to respond to all of my questions along the way, managed communication between myself and other realtors/potential buyers effortlessly, and presents herself professionally. I would recommend her to anyone I know in the DG and surrounding areas. She would be an excellent choice for your home buying or selling experience. Less ... More

In a long search since my divorce to find a great house in a great school district that I could afford, my luck changed in days of meeting Mary Braatz. She will work day and night for you and on the day a listing reactivated had me in it first thing! Which was the only reason my full price offer got ahead of 6 other offers, one for over 10K more! It pays to work with an agent who knows the area in and out, the school districts, and my needs better than even I did. Buying or selling, go with Mary Braatz Realty if you are in Downers Grove or surrounding areas. Less ... More

Listed home, but didn't sell
We switched our listing to Mary from another agent. We were very impressed with Mary. She knows the local market extremely well and was very responsive, professional and thorough. Unfortunately for her, an offer we received from the previous agent was finally approved and Mary had to change the listing to "under contract" shortly after we gave her the listing, but if we had to do it over again, we would have listed the home with Mary from the start.

Mary went above and beyond our expectations. She handled everything for us, while we were in Alaska, and she was in Illinois. We couldn't be happier with her expertise and professionalism during our home-buying experience.
