Knowledge, Patience, Enthusiasm
Mary Ann exceeded all expectations. Her knowledge of the market, patience and enthusiasm are unparalleled, and, when we found the house for us, she kept everyone (selling agent, us, inspectors, attorneys) on point through offer to close, navigated obstacles, ensured we closed, and followed up after closing to see how we were doing. We really wanted to understand the market and looked at a lot of homes. Mary Ann assured us that it was ok since we were learning what we liked and did not like. When we started looking we were generally open to anything, but over time we narrowed our wish list. We did not even realize that she was helping us narrow or focus. The process was painless. All of the effort paid off when the house we ultimately purchased came on the market. Mary Ann saw the house and knew we would like it. We had a viewing before the home had an open house. We made an offer that day.

While we ended up purchasing a home in another town, MayAnn was a pleasure to work with, very knowledgeable, and showed us some unique homes that were on our shortlist. I'd recommend anyone searching in Chappaqua area to reach out to her.

Expertise, Insight and Compassion
Mary Ann guided us through a long, fraught process with expertise, insight and compassion. She often went above and beyond to ensure that the house was well-presented to as many buyers as possible, and assisted in ways we didn't know required assistance. If we had it to do over again, we would call Mary Ann.

Patient, Informative, Trustworthy, Dependable
A home is the most personal purchase most will ever make. When you are searching for a home, you are searching for so much more than a piece of property. It will be where you raise your kids, it will be where you grow older. It will be where you laugh and argue, learn and love, struggle and persevere. It is the stage on which your whole family’s life and memories will be set, and so finding that perfect and personal 'home' is difficult. When you are relocating across the country with no family or friends to rely on, this already difficult task can seem even more daunting.
That is why we feel so fortunate to have had Mary Ann Bayer as our real estate agent. Mary Ann showed us countless properties in all kinds of weather over many months. Through it all, she was patient, informative, trustworthy, dependable, kind, and helpful. She got to know us personally and our needs for our space and could read our reactions and tell us what would be interesting even before we set foot in it. She would do the research and legwork to provide information to help us even if it meant passing on a place and spending even more time looking. We never felt like she was trying to fit us into a property, but would consider our quirky needs and diligently work to find matches.
She has been more than an agent to us, she has been a friend. When our kids had their first week of school in a new district, she stopped by with gifts for them and us to brighten their days. She worked to connect us to the community online and in person. Whenever we have had questions about the area, she’s gone above and beyond to provide answers. She has checked in repeatedly even after the closing to make sure we are happy and comfortable in our neighborhood. When you are relocating to a new place, that connection can be priceless.
We are very thankful to Mary Ann for her enormous help in finding our home. We could not have asked for a better agent with our home search, nor a better person to know when moving into a new community. We have found our home and are busy now making it our own. We have space for music, space for woodworking, places for crafts and cooking and reading and sports and all the needs our family had. We have our ‘stage’ for all the memories to come. We have this in no small part because of her. We recommend Mary Ann Bayer as a real estate agent enthusiastically and without reservation. You would be lucky to have her as your agent!

Patient & Competent
I give Mary Ann 5 stars.
She was great all around. She listened to my concerns over 2 years, modified what she wanted to do to take into account my wishes. She was patient with my hesitations. She was very competent in finally selling the house. She communicated with the buyer, who was extremely difficult by constantly adding more requirements about the house. Mary Ann kept sight of the goal to sell the house for the best price.
I would recommend her to a seller or buyer.

Springs into Action
I would recommend MaryAnn Bayer to anyone looking to sell their home. You’d be lucky to have her as your agent. She is so responsive. She is a great listener. And once she hears your needs and concerns she springs into action. She had my house sold in 6 months. Prior to working with MaryAnn my house had been sitting on the market for several months. After an initial walk through she recommended that we get rid of the tired furnishings and do virtual staging instead. She designed the most beautiful, contemporary virtual staging and when prospective buyers saw the pictures on line the house sold itself - in fact we had a bidding war. That was another area in which MaryAnn was indispensable to me - she is a shrewd negotiator and was very helpful in guiding me to the right buyer. Anyway, I look forward to working with MaryAnn again on future selling and buying prospects!
