Above and beyond service Allen Tate was. Mary Palmes, Meredith Stoup and all those hidden associates walked with us through every step of this process. Moving out of state is difficult enough we hadn’t moved in 30 years but Mary was available to answer any questions at any hour and usually either early morning or late at night. Personally answering by phone call, text or email. We are happily in our over the moon dream home, loving life hopefully another 30 years. Thank you all.
Very satisfied with the professionalism and market expertise of our agent!
It has a pleasure working with Mary! She was diligently searching for the perfect home for us until we found the one we purchased! Her dedication to our needs and desires in our forever home helped us land the perfect home. Thanks again Mary for your faithfulness and patience with us!!
Moving is scary enough but out of state to all new surroundings even more so. As fate and miracles go we kept liking listings that were being shown by a Mary Palmes. We hit on a video Bio of this sales rep who was home grown here! What better person to help us! On our 1st trip we headed out to scope out the area and the street we turned on, yup a billboard sign with Mary Palmes name, talk about a sign! From the very 1st contact, long distance at that, to the signing of our contract to keys in hand Mary was with us. Every twist, turn and hoop jumping, observing safe covid protocols and all through the holidays mind you, Mary was our calming constant companion. From Email, text, and phone calls Mary was our Christmas miracle ushering us into 2022 with our dream home. We not only found an excellent agent but now a dear friend. Thank you Allen Tate reality and Mary we are so very grateful.
Working with Mary Palmes was a wonderful experience. She was very knowledgeable and worked with me to find the perfect home.
I loved working with Mary Palmes. She knew what I was looking for and my budget, and she found me great properties to look at. She also was great about looking at things that I didn’t even pay attention to while looking. Besides being very professional, Mary is also very fun to work with. I recommend her to everyone who is looking to buy or sell.
Outstanding in every way. Her knowledge and experience really helped us find the house we needed.
Mary is THE consummate professional. No one knows the Iredell county market as well as Mary. She is always available to her clients--on their schedule. Mary invests valuable time staying current on NC real estate laws and will not allow her clients to go "down a rabbit hole." I bought a home 7 years ago and Mary was the sellers' agent. In late September 2021 I sold that home and Mary was my agent. Her advise was "spot on" about the market value. If you believe you want the best agent, call Mary Palmes.
Excellent throughout the sale of home.Totally prompt, courteous, and always professional.
Mary was fantastic to work with! She is knowledgeable about the area, the market and has excellent communication skills! She sold our home quickly and above asking price! I would highly recommend working with her.
We closed on 11-18-21Mary was GREAT to work with. She was my realtor when I bought my house years ago. Very pleased then also. I HIGHLY recommend her. THANKS again Mary.
I really enjoyed working with Mary. She was great at responding quickly to questions and concerns which helped move the process along and made for a smooth transaction. I am grateful to be working along side other agents like Mary in my community.
Was ways offered prompt and professional service!
We had the best experience with Mary. She is has many years of experience, and is very knowledgeable about the market. She was extremely helpful prior to listing our house with her recommendations. We both would definitely use her again with any of our real estate needs.
Mary was very knowledgeable of the market and was very understanding with any need or question I had. She made sure that I was comfortable with any decision and that I understood my options.Verified by RateMyAgent
I have received excellent, proficient, and professional service from Mary. She has been amazing!
Mary has been professional and prompt on everything that we have needed to list our home. I am very pleased with her knowledge and experience of the current selling market. I would highly recommend her to anyone selling their home!
Very professional, informative & friendly. Touched all the bases. Home run hitter. Mary was able to easily guide us through the many nuances of home buying for an out of town purchaser. Her talent and expertise were invaluable.
I have had the pleasure to work with, and have Mary Palmes, represent me as a realestate agent in a vacant land sale in Iredell County in 2020. The 2+ acre land parcel I ownedwith my family was not the greatest piece of property an agent could work with. Mary agreed tohelp us and list it accordingly. Not only was the property difficult in its road access, Mary alsohad to work with the buyers, as well as my family, and the City of Statesville as well as theCounty of Iredell, to have the zoning changed from agricultural to multi-family. This alsoentailed the property to be annexed into the City of Statesville. It was a multi-month process.One in which, as my family resided outside of Statesville, was very difficult for us to be 'hands-onin the process. The closing went smoothly.I consider Mary Palmes a seasoned professional in the real estate field. She is kind,knowledgeable, and communicative. Not only would I work with her again, I would recommendher to anyone for real estate dealings.
Mary was very detailed with every step of our selling process! She is extremely knowledgeable of the "do's" and "don'ts" of real estate! We trust her opinion and know she will not lead us in the wrong direction. Thank you Mary for all you've done for our family!
I have known Mary Palmes for many many years and she always delivers and then exceeds expectations - Thank you Mary.
We have been totally pleased and completely satisfied in Mary Palmes, our Allen Tate agent, in our recent home sale and purchase. Mary has up to date knowledge of the market and the skills we depended on to sell our former home in ONE DAY, as well as help us find our new home. We were extremely “picky” about finding the right home for our retirement years, and Mary was patient with us and diligent in her commitment to us. We consider her a family friend now, and will ALWAYS depend on her for any real estate needs in the future.
Mary Palmes is an excellent realty agent. She went to the extreme to make sure we had a pleasant sale with our house. Very professional! She is a 10 on a scale of 1-5!! God bless you, Mary!!
Mary is a very professional and awesome realtor. We love Mary Palmes, she is a beautiful person. We would highly recommend her to anyone.
Although Mary Palmes was the seller’s agent, she was very instrumental in making sure the connection and communications across state lines were consistent. For us as the buyer, her performance was efficient for both seller and buyer with integrity - straightforward and accurate. She exemplifies professionalism with a clear illustration of business ethics to seal the deal.
Always professional, excellent service with Mary Palmes!
Mary is a true professional. She is extremely knowledgeable and truly cares about her clients and always has their best interest at heart. She works tirelessly to make sure that her clients are happy and well informed throughout the entire homebuying process and even beyond closing day.
Mary Palmes is the best! She has helped us sell and or buy three houses!!!!!
Mary went far above and beyond and earned every bit of her commission. Would recommend her over and over again.
Mary is the epitome of professionalism. Her dedication and service is greatly appreciated.
Mary went above and beyond what I ever expected. She was very helpful throughout the whole process of selling my home. I could count on her to answer any questions no matter what time of day or even early, early morning. Thank you so much.
Mary has been a true Blessing. She put in tons of hours helping us - looking at listings and listing my home. She is knowledgeable and hard working. You can’t go wrong picking her!
We could not have been more satisfied with our experience working with Mary! From the very beginning of our search for a new home, she was attentive and responsive to any and all of our requests. We were searching for a new home remotely, but Mary made it feel like we were right there. She did an excellent job coordinating with us as we traveled back and forth from Nashville to Statesville. She made us feel comfortable the entire time, and it was truly a pleasure to work with her. I would recommend her to anyone who is looking for a true professional with a personal touch. She and her team did an excellent job!
We loved working with Mary! She knows the area and market well and worked tirelessly to sell our property quickly. She was in contact with us often responding to e-mails, texts and phone calls. Mary is kind and professional ; therefore, it is quite easy to recommend her for any of your real estate needs.
Mary is a very hard worker that goes over and beyond to make the sale go as smoothly as possible. Thanks for making it easier on me!
Mary is such a lovely Lady so helpful in all ways I would recommend her . So glad she helped me threw this as my frist time selling .
Mary did an excellent job selling our house. In spite of some problems, “due to Covid19", she was very calm and reassuring. Following up with everything and talking us down off the roof a few times. Mary is very professional and knows her job well. I would have no problem using her again, or recommending her to anyone buying or selling a house.
Mary is brilliant she so helpful what a great realtor very very satisfied with her enjoyed my experience with her this lady knows her stuff Thank you Mary
Mary did a fantastic job in the midst of unprecedented times with the Covid virus. We had buyers walk away at the last minute due to fear over the virus and Mary hung in there and found another buyer quickly. If you’re looking for a professional in the Statesville area who really knows the area we would highly recommend Mary!
I,am very pleased with Mary she very helpful and thoughtful so Happy she my broker .
Mary is brilliant so very helpful thought this so happy to have her as my realtor .
Simply put, without Mary, we wouldn't have a new home. We made an offer on a house before the pandemic and closed right in the middle of it. With one of the sellers halfway across the world and unable to leave her home, we had a very unique situation. Mary expertly guided us through every step of the way and even got the sellers connected to Senator Thom Tillis' office to navigate getting all the necessary paperwork outside of The United States completed. Wow. Mary's assistant, Meredith, was also fantastic and very detail-oriented. We are very grateful for everything Mary and Meredith did to get us across the finish line.
Mary spent a lot of time showing me houses until she found me the perfect one. She never gave up and she listened to what I told her I was exactly looking for. Excellent job.
Mary handled our whole house selling and purchasing experience with total professionalism. She guided us through uncharted waters with confidence. We would highly recommend using her to purchase or sell a home.
Mary has been an excellent agent as well as a good friend to my family. She has served us on many occasions both in buying and selling real estate. She will always be our first go-to for any real estate business.
Mary was great to work with throughout the buying and relocation process. She is very professional and knowledgeable. We really enjoyed working with her and will recommend anyone we know buying or selling to work with her. We felt like she had our best interests in mind and represented us well with the seller.
Mary is responsive, knowledgeable, professional and friendly. She literally saved our deal at the last minute, put us in touch with the right people, and made our dream come true. I would highly recommend Mary for all your real estate needs.
Mary was wonderful to work with through the home-buying and relocation process. She instilled a sense of calm, helped us navigate the hurdles to find our perfect home!
Mary Palmes was great. She is very responsive and knowledgeable. She made our transaction much easier!
Kathy and I appreciated the quick and knowledgeable response to all our questions. Mary had excellent market knowledge.We highly recommend Mary Palmes to everyone needing the services of a realtor in the Statesville region.David and Kathy Mann
Mary Palmes is the consummate professional. We specifically asked for her as our list agent - she is a top producer in her office - and we’re so glad we did. She did an excellent job marketing our home with professional pics, listing in various MLS systems and handling calls from other agents. She was a real trooper through some tough negotiations, not to mention her patience in dealing with our relocation company. Mary knows the area, the people, the market and we don’t think you could find a better agent for the Statesville area.
Mary keeps us informed of activities, and informations which concerns our sale.
.Mary goes the extra mile for her clients. Very pleased with her services
Mary is extremely professional, goes the extra mile to help her client; very knowledgable of her of job. She is a FIVE STAR.
Outstanding, professional services
Mary is a fantastic realtor. She helped my daughter buy her first home and helped us navigate very challenging issues with the builder. She made a difficult process easier because she was regularly in touch with us to keep us updated. And she was willing to go to bat for us when there were issues during the building process. Then Mary helped my mother sell her home of 30 years. Again, there were obstacles and delays from the other side and Mary advocated for my mother all along the way. Mary understands the needs of both buyers and sellers, of the young and the elderly. I highly recommend her!
Loved working with Mary Palmes! She helped make buying a home less stressful and helped get my house at a better price!! My daughter and I will be referring someone else to her very soon!
Mary is very friendly and approachable! Fought for me when appraisal came back much lower than my offer and got sellers to accept appraisal price which was $7,000 lower than my offer!
Out standing service, highly recommend Mary
Outstanding service, highly recommend Mary
It was a pleasure working with Mary to sale my Mama's home. She was always quick to respond with any questions we had along the journey. She was on vacation for a week with her family during the process but continued sending emails so that we knew things were moving forward. If you need a realtor, Mary should be your choice.
We were completely satisfied with the service we received from Mary in the marketing and the selling of our property. She was always professional and able to handle any contingency that arose. We would highly recommend Mary to anyone who needs a first rate realtor.
I have had Mary represent me in three real estate transactions. Mary, I have found to be resourceful, knowledgeable, professional and throughout. If one was to want a fair and honest experience, I can not recommend her highly enough. Whatever my situation or problems, Mary has had advice and solutions. All my real estate transactions have been smooth and painless. Mary once sold one of my properties over a weekend, to my considerable profit. I could not be more pleased. Mary will work for your objectives. Not just to make a commission. She has my full trust as I know Mary is honest and ethical.
Mary was outstanding as our selling and buying agent. We had a very challenging closing and she handled the situation with the upmost professionalism and the situation ended on a positive note. She worked tirelessly for us and we valued her greatly as our realtor. Mary is respectful, kind, courteous, hard working, knowledgeable, and ethical. We highly recommend Mary to anyone looking for an agent and we miss her! :)
When my husband and I set out to look for a new house we had no timeline and a decent idea of our "dream home". Mary was patient and thorough with our search, even introducing us to the place we now call home! She has excellent knowledge of the area and walked us through each step of the buying process. Mary communicated promptly, answered our many questions, and effectively managed our difficult closing. She genuinely cares about her clients and supports their decisions. We could not recommend a more exceptional real estate agent to trust and work with to find your next home!
I am pleased to have had Mary Palmes as my realtor in search of my home. I recommend her. She was great to work with!
We spent the better part of 5 months with Mary searching for homes all throughout Iredell county (to include Statesville, Troutman and Mooresville). Pretty sure we looked at almost every available home on the MLS. Not once did we ever feel that Mary was becoming impatient, irritable or simply tired of being our agent. We were her main focus and she demonstrated endless patience throughout the whole process. She kept the home buying process from becoming overly complicated and frustrating and was never pushy just to get us into "a house". She was genuinely interested in helping us find our home and did everything she could to accommodate our needs and our schedule. Through it all, we found a home and couldn't be happier! Mary helped us to make sure our home met most of the criteria on our list and would work for us. Mission accomplished! We would highly recommend that you use Mary any time you're in the market for a new home. You won't be disappointed!
Working with Mary has always been a pleasure. This is the second home she has helped me purchase. She is very responsive and always gets back to be in a timely manner.
While we waited for our Florida home to sell, Mary led our 10-month search for a new home in North Carolina. She frequently provided customized home searches and patiently walked us through over 70 homes in the Advance, Clemmons, Statesville, Troutman and Mooresville areas. Her knowledgeable of the area helped us in locating our home. This is our sixth home in our 30 years of marriage and we can honestly say that no one matches Mary in her effort for finding the right place for us. Mary is very friendly, a good listener, devoted and very patient. Mary is awesome! We believe Mary to be a top-notch realtor and we highly recommend Mary Palmes!
Mary Palmes makes selling a house so easy. She is always available for questions, she gives great advice, based on years of experience buying and selling in our market and our neighborhood, and she gives everything she has to all her clients. We would list again with Mary, or seek her out if we would like to buy. She's an excellent realtor and a such a nice person!
Loved my experience with Mary. She did what she said she was going to do, made timely suggestions, and was realistic about pricing and what had to be done to sell my home. I would not hesitate to use her again.
Mary worked hard for us throughout the entire process of selling our home. We appreciate her professionalism and willingness to help us in so many ways. We highly recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell a house.
When my sister decided to relocate from Lenoir to the Statesville/Troutman area, we chose Mary Palmes of Allen Tate Realty to help us find a house which suited my sister’s needs. Mary is a true professional who knows the Statesville, Troutman, and Lake Norman areas as well as anyone. She knows about the quality of construction and housing at a very high level. Mary kept us informed at all times and was there for every part of the process. My sister is now happily settled in her new home. I would recommend Mary to anyone needing a realtor in this area.
Mary was great to work with. She is very professional and understands the market and the area. She helped us throughout the entire process. She is a wonderful listener and we truly appreciate all her efforts. I have recommended her to others and will continue to do so because she went above and beyond to help us. Thank you Mary!
We are new to the area and Mary did a good job showing us the market range in terms of home and price. Can't imagine asking anyone else to help.
We are new to the area and Mary did a great job showing us the market's range in a very limited time period. Her understanding of the market and our objectives was key in helping us make a quick decision-and she is a strong and fair negotiator with our best interests at heart. We can't imagine asking anyone else to help us the next time we are in the market.
Mary was wonderful to work with. She went above and beyond to work with our busy schedule and show us houses that were worth our time. She took all of the work out of the home buying process. We love our home and highly recommend Mary.
Mary's knowledge about the market, communication skills, and guidance from listing through closing was excellent. She was available and stayed on top of everything for a smooth process. Thanks Mary!
We are so glad we chose Mary Palmes from Allen Tate as our realtor. She was very knowledgeable, professional, & encouraging about our sale prospects. She came prepared with information to our first meeting & kept us informed during the whole process. Her suggestions & guidance were spot on. She always answered our questions & concerns in a timely manner. Mary served as a dual agent for us as sellers & for our buyer & communication was key. I would highly recommend Mary to anyone going through buying or selling a house.
Mary has been my agent for quite a few years, and has always been attentive and responded well to my needs. Above all, she exemplifies much patience in her professional demeanor. She knows people as well as she knows her business. Will continue to call on her in the future, and will confidently refer her to others requiring real estate needs.
Mary did an outstanding job selling my mother's house in Statesville. Because I live out of town, I really needed an agent who could assist with all of the frustrating details of selling a house. Mary was an incredible resource for lining up local contractors, surveyors, cleaning service, and even helped locate an estate sale service for me. I could NEVER have gotten my mother's home sold without Mary Palmes. Thank you!!
Mary is a SUPERB realtor. Her expertise is apparent from the start and put my husband and I at ease during the home buying process. She had an answer to all our questions, even if that meant doing extra research. She listened to all our concerns without judgement and always with a smile. We trusted her implicitly. Mary’s willingness to go above and beyond made the process smooth and kept us informed every step of the way. I recommend her to everyone!
Mary was wonderful throughout the process of selecting a new home. She was very helpful in answering my many questions. Mary never failed to respond in a timely manner. She always looked out for my best interests and tried to insured that I was not taken advantaged of by the buyer. Mary was always prompt to her appointments, I never had to wait on her. She was well educated as a realtor and knew or could readily get the answer you needed. I felt like I could always count on Mary. I felt truly blessed to have Mary as my realtor.
Mary went way beyond her normal realtor duties to ensure that the sale of our home was successful. Her grace and patience with everyone involved was amazing. Her continued support and follow up was outstanding. She also had plenty of local resource contacts for us to use in preparing our property for sale. Thank you for a job well done! Eddie
Mary kept us informed thru the process. When somthing comes up and it will she handles it quickly. She knows the Statesville / Iredell market. That's why year in year out she is one of the best.
Mary, It was so good to have such a caring person, always so kind and able to answer all questions and helped me in so many ways. if I ever need a home in your area be sure that I will call you. May God bless you! Geraldine You get a 5 star from me
I can't imagine having any other realtor with us through the process. Mary helped us buy and sell a home and always provided us with what we needed. She gives great feedback and walks you through each step, giving you every detail you might need. She has so much experience, knowledge, and great connections, so everything was a breeze!
Mary Palmes was our selling broker for our home last spring, as well as our buying agent last month!! She was patient, encouraging, honest, and professional in every aspect. In selling our house...she helped us set a reasonable price and gave us ideas for staging and improvement. As we looked for our next home, she gave us valuable advice without being pushy or opinionated, always giving us plenty of time to browse in the homes and ask questions. We highly recommend Mary whether you are selling or buying. She is outstanding on both a personal as well as professional level.
Mary Palmes was knowledgeable, accurate, genuine and extremely professional. I would recommend her totally and trust her and her extremely honest approach to clients. Jerry Jones
We are really happy and satisfied with the sale of our previous home and purchase of the new one; all this with the assistance and help from Mary! She made this process go as smoothly as possible for us! Totally will recommend Mary Palmes to our friends and family for their real estate needs.
We had a great experience with Mary!!! We love how she kept us updated with any detail about our listing! We would recommend Mary to our friends and family!
Listing my house with Mary Palmes was the best decision I made. She helped me through the whole process of selling my home and made the task less overwhelming. I highly recommend Mary because she is very knowledgeable about real estate in our area. She delivers!
Mary Palmes was just what we needed in our search for a home in the Statesville area. I was out of town and while my daughter lived in Statesville, neither of us "knew" the market. After discussing our wants/needs with Mary, she went right to work sending us vital info on all homes that fit our criteria in a timely manner. She did an admirable job in communicating with both my daughter and myself what was available and her input was invaluable as Mary was much more aware of the market that either of us. That formula worked successfully for us in a matter of time the perfect fit was realized. We got the home we wanted and the whole closing experience due to Mary's expertise was done with a minimum of time. We were extremely pleased with Mary's able assistance and guidance through all phases of the buying experience. And yes, we would hardily recommend Mary's assistance if you are in the market for a home. S
Working with Mary was really a great experience. As this was our first time selling a house, we were quite intimidated by the whole process. Mary was always very pleasant and patient in helping us through it. The whole thing was quite pleasant. From now on I will consider Mary my "personal" real estate agent.
Mary Palmes, We live out of State and Mary Palmes was a person of perseverance, Patience, energy and in every way Thorough. All obstacles along our path to a new Home were dealt with and overcome. A true Professional in the Real Estate Realm. Five Star rating.
I thoroughly enjoyed working with Mary on a purchase transaction. Her unsurpassed knowledge and experience really helped make the buying process much smoother than most. She has a gentle and kind demeanor and it definitely shows! As a mortgage lender we also desire consistent communication and follow up. No regrets here, I wish I worked with more agents like Mary! Thank you for making our transaction a breeze Jason Wood Mortgage Loan Officer Fifth Third Mortgage 704-696-3423
Mary went out of her way to assure our buying experience was as painless as possible. We felt we had a friend, and not just a realtor. I would definitely use Mary in any future realty needs. She's terrific!
Mary did a marvelous job of guiding us through a very difficult process of selling and buying. We are very grateful for her hard work on our behalf and recommend her to anyone looking for a terrific realtor!
It was an absolute pleasure working with Mary. She was always quick to respond with answers to my questions or concerns. That made the process of buying my 1st home incredibly pleasant and stress free.
"Heather had told us how much she liked you personally and how imressed she was with your style and professionalism as a realtor. She was certainly correct. It was a pleasure working with you and especially getting to know you. Again, thank you for making a sell when it seemed impossible. Be assured, we now refer to you as "our realor."
"We really enjoyed looking for our first home with you, Mary Palmes. You provided us with all the information first time home owners need. Although our list of requirements and living situations were complicated, you managed to find us a home that meets all our needs and we are truly enjoying our new home. Thanks.
It's hard enough managing the sale of the parents' home after their death, harder even when you live thousands of miles away on another continent. Mary Palmes helped us at every step--assessing improvements that would help sell the property, setting up the listing remotely, help making adjustments to remain competitive in the local market. Once the property was listed, she was extremely available during negotiations with prospective buyers. The final sale was smooth sailing as well. Job well done!
