Working with Mary has been a wonderful experience. We worked with Mary to purchase a home in Ridgefield CT. She is knowledge about the local markets and was a wonderful advocate for us when it came time to place an offer for a home. She is not just looking to 'close the deal' but rather make sure you are getting a fair deal, that the home meets your requirement and most importantly that you are happy with your purchase, plus she is a great negotiator. Best of all she is just a really nice person. Without a doubt I would use Mary again for future real estate needs.Miriam

Mary was incredibly helpful getting an urgent transaction together quickly. Super friendly and knowledgeable.Joseph & Frances McCusker
Mary listed and sold my Ridgefield home in 2011. She was a very supportive and capable agent, from the first stage of decluttering, etc., through the months of showings, right to the happy ending! Mary was aggressive in advertising and keeping the house in front of brokers and potential buyers. I felt throughout the process that she was working fully on my behalf. I benefited greatly from her professionalism while enjoying her wonderful kindness and consideration.A.
Mary helped me buy a second home a distance from my primary home. She found me a wonderful local agent, interfaced with that agent and supported me during the entire, quite lengthy process. I found her to be totally responsive and a delight in every way. I would recommend her to anyone. Also, I put her in touch with two different families here in my primary community and I know that they were each VERY happy with her care and service. One bought a home using her and one is still looking at homes with her.B.
Mary was absolutely amazing during the entire process, listening to our home needs and doing everything to help us find the home of our dreams!C.

Mary Phelps, made our home finding process a pleasant experience. She not only showed us the home but the places around and the good things the town had in store for us. Always responsive and extremely professional. Very well informed of the areas she works in.Ram & Kavitha
I highly, highly recommend Mary Phelps. She was our agent who represented us listing and selling our home in Wilton. In all honesty, our experience working with her could not have been more positive and I cannot speak highly enough. Personality: She has a natural enthusiasm and positive demeanor that made her a pleasure to work with throughout entire home selling process. My wife and I truly enjoyed the time spent with her. Expertise: Mary's familiarity with and insight into the local real estate market is outstanding. She worked with us to design an effective sales/marketing strategy that enabled us to sell our home quickly at an attractive price. Organization: She managed the process from pre-listing prep, staging, showing, and negotiations through closing with deft efficiency that kept all parties comfortably on track. She was seemingly always available and responded quickly when we needed to communicate.S.
I was lucky enough to have Mary recommended to me by a friend. I had interviewed 3 other agents and found them lacking in being adjustable to the price I wanted. Mary is patient and understanding and helped me stage my house so that it looked fantastic. It sold in a week! After that, she was involved in negotiations and taking to my attorney. Everything went smoothly. Thank you Mary, you are the ultimate professional!R.
Mary is fun to work with and gets good results. Not only did she find me a place I love but she had great decorating ideas that helped make it the wonderful home I wanted. I am very happy with Mary and my new home.Dr. A.
