Mary Ellen is the most professional, knowledgeable and intelligent realtor I have ever had the privilege to work with in the buying and selling of over 50 homes across America, Europe, Australia and the Caribbean. Her knowledge of the Newport area is second to none; she understands real estate better than any other agent I have come across. She works constantly to stay on top of the market and maintains a commanding knowledge of local market values.
Retiring as CEO of a Fortune 500 Corporation several years ago, I decided to move to Southern California. I was unfamiliar with the Newport area. Mary Ellen gave me a tour of the cultural aspects, nature attractions, local points of interest and a wonderful sense of “life in Newport Beach”. No other agent went to so much trouble to give me an overall prospective and to share the joy of living in the community.
Mary Ellen, simply stated, is tops in her field. I cannot recommend her highly enough!

I cannot thank Mary Ellen enough for all her help and her enthusiastic attitude on the acquisition of my Corona del Mar duplex income property. While it took me a considerable amount of time as I was looking for the “right “ investment, I greatly appreciated Mary Ellen’s high level of professionalism, perseverance and patience. Mary Ellen was an absolute delight to work with and you can be assured I will recommend her to all of my friends and colleagues looking for real estate in this area.

Mary Ellen and Bob are real estate specialists in the Newport Beach / Corona del Mar area and are well connected with the market. In dealing with the marketing and sale of our property in Irvine Terrace, Mary Ellen demonstrated great professional integrity and patience while working with us, the existing renters in the property and several prospective buyers. Mary Ellen’s efforts were especially helpful to me as I was out of the country for a good portion of the time the property was being marketed and sold. She always made a point of keeping me aware of all developments and what our response options to those developments might be. She and Bob went above and beyond when they personally cared for physical issues with the property in our absence. Mary Ellen was always available to us and forthright with us throughout the entire marketing and sales process.

Sheila and I wanted to say thank you for being so well prepared and for the time you spent with us during our search for our new home in Newport Coast. We looked forward to working with you again as you and Bob had done such a thorough job on the previous purchase of our Laguna Niguel home. We believe the knowledge that you have of the real estate market is outstanding and you were very direct and upfront in giving us input to the different markets in the Newport Coast area. Your integrity is extremely high and your negotiating skills are very professional. While certain personalities involved in the sales transaction for the purchase of the Newport Coast home became somewhat difficult, you handled yourself in a very professional and friendly manner to make things work. There is no question that your knowledge of the market was very helpful to Sheila and me to help us better understand the values in the area. When it comes time to sell our present home, it goes without saying that we will come to you and Bob.
