Meet the Team
The efforts of a single agent alone are no longer enough to ensure success! Ultimate success in real estate depends on a consistent "Team Approach." The key is Support and Balance.
The knowledge and expertise of each staff member must build upon that of every other member. This is an approach that is practiced daily in Mary's Office. Meetings are held weekly to share information and update staff members on existing transactions. We view real estate decisions in the context of a company's overall strategic objectives, not simply as isolated transactions.
We seek to understand how real estate impacts each of our client's progress in looking to purchase a home or in selling their home. Problems are discussed. Solutions are offered. New solutions are analyzed. I receive whatever support is necessary to achieve my clients' goals. My staff's specialized knowledge is enhanced by the combined expertise of every other associate in our firm. In fact, in our office, talking with our staff is like talking with a single agent.
Mary has been in the real estate business for over 20 years. Every year has been a successful journey in mastering her passion for helping people achieve their dream of owning a home. She has consistently ranked within the top 1% of Realtors in Stanislaus County since 1991 and top 2% of Realtors with Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices nationwide. Part of her success has been the support of her team. Every single member of her staff have dedicated themselves to very specific aspects of the business, thus allowing Mary the time to put transactions (buyers & sellers) together. Mary Prieto's goal is to provide every client with the kind of service that will make them a customer for life. This commitment to excellence is apparent in every aspect of her style.
Marketing Director & Buyers Agent
Lydia is not only Mary's partner but also her sister. Lydia has worked with Mary for over 20 years and enjoys her position in the business. Lydia possesses a BA degree in Organizational Communication and a background in Marketing/Public Relations. Lydia incorporates many diversified marketing and promotional activities throughout the Central Valley. Lydia's skills and compassion have proven to be a cornerstone for Mary's business. Lydia is also an excellent buyers agent. After a lender has prequalified a buyer, Lydia will show them properties based on their wants and needs within their mortgage qualifications. When the "perfect" home is found, Lydia's job is accomplished and Mary's expertise is put into play. Mary's focus at this point is to negotiate the best possible contract for the buyer.
Licensed Transaction Manager
Malisa has worked with Mary and Lydia since 2002. As a Transaction Manager, Malisa is responsible for tracking the sale once it has been made. Consequently, the major portion of her work takes place once the contract is finally signed and an escrow is opened. Malisa works closely with the lender, escrow officer, inspectors and appraisers to ensure a timely and streamline close. Malisa assists Lydia in various marketing mail-outs.
