Happy Client Testimonials

“Mari is a consummate professional and has represented our needs with the utmost integrity and attention to detail. She has a great sense of style and is able to share her ideas on how best to “stage” and prepare a home for the market. When we listed our family home Mari’s marketing plan was both comprehensive and timely. We have felt that Mari has our best interest at heart and would do everything possible to represent us to her best ability. We will definitely use Mari Connolly as our realtor again, for our future real estate needs.”

“We have now used Mari's services several times in buying and selling houses in the Portland Area. Mari is not only highly professional, but really works for her client, not the sale. She gave us advice like she would give to someone in her own family. We were pretty demanding and she definitely put in the time we needed. An extremely honest and genuinely warm person.”

-Robert & Andrea Winters, Buyers & Sellers


“Mari has been wonderful to work with. I'm in California moving to Portland, and she has helped me take care of each and every aspect of the purchase and the move. She is very responsive to phone calls and emails, has provided useful information on local resources, spent hours showing me the area surrounding the house I am buying, and smoothed the way through inspections and paperwork. She has made this transition stress- free and fun. You couldn't ask for more!!”

-Nancy Herman, Buyer


"Professional, confident, experienced. Warm, supportive, thoughtful. Mari is an incredible person and agent. She guided us with expert knowledge through every step of selling our home. At such a potentially stressful time, her manner and capability put us at ease. Thanks to Mari's negotiating and skill, our home sold far above asking, after receiving multiple offers. Throughout the entire process, from preparing our home to close, Mari was attentive, direct, and kind. She is in a rare class. We recommend her highly. "
