I liked Mary even before I knew her. For years she walked our community distributing her RE newsletter to residents in Waterways. It was full of information regarding the RE market trends, sales and forecasts. If Mary could market herself in such a manner I imagined she could sell my home quickly. After meeting Mary in person and signing the agreement she moved forward and had photos, videos and a plan ready to go to market in just a few days. If selling a home were easy we would do it ourselves, Mary took control and executed every step of the process as if it were her own home. I told her many times how grateful I was to have her to navigate the sale. She communicated often and informed and advised us on how to move forward. She was spot on and we sold our home in a short time at a fair market price. Not only did Mary become a trusted business partner; she became a friend.

Mary was incredibly helpful and supportive throughout the process of selling our home in Golden Gate Estates. We definitely needed some guidance to get this home prepared to sell and listed. Mary provided this for us and was always available for us, which was wonderful as I live in another city and have a hectic schedule (not always easy!). In addition, she was always knowledgeable about what we could expect back for what we put in when we were getting the house ready. With her help we had several offers within the first few days and had our home sold very quickly for a great price! I would definitely recommend Mary to anyone selling their home.

Mary Horesco did a superb job to sell our home as she has done for so many others. In Waterways, we received highest sale price for this model since the peak in the mid-2000’s. We prepared our home for sale per her suggestions with a few simple repairs, staging, and enhancement of features. It was showcased with professional photography and multiple websites. A solid offer was received within 30 days. Mary followed the mortgage process with the buyers’ lender to ensure that all approvals/timelines were met, etc. She then met with the lenders’ appraiser at the house, and provided comps with valuations to support the sales price. This was critically important since a larger home closed the day before at $30,000 less than what we were expecting per our accepted offer. Mary is experienced with appraisals and knew exactly how to support our home value. Our home appraised at the agreed sales price. We were guided through every step in the process: what to expect and the outcome. Anyone seeking a real estate pro should contact Mary Horesco, a real estate professional that works for you!

Mary, was extremely knowledgeable & professional in her dealings with us. She worked with us as the sellers of our home 1408 Birdie Dr, Naples, FL (Valencia Golf & Country Club) to completion. Many of the homes in this community are sitting. She got the job done in under 45 days for a premium price. She was awesome to work with. Highly recommended professional!!

When I contacted Mary, my property had been listed elsewhere for 3 months with very few legitimate offers. I saw that she had sold a property adjacent to mine and I sent her an email late Sunday night expecting her to call me back Monday morning. She called me back within 10 minutes. I knew immediately that she's the type of agent whom I want listing my property.
The next day, she came to visit my property and went inside, took pictures, and recommended for some basic repairs needed to reduce negative perceptions of value. She provided great photos and descriptions on a multitude of websites including setting up a single property websites. I received a good solid offer with her assistance we sold the property in a short time frame.
I had a positive experience working with Mary and I look forward to working with her again.

When we went to sell my late sister-in-laws house, we didn't know anyone in the Naples real estate market. I Googled the community(Valencia) and noticed a YouTube video, by Mary, explaining the property in detail. I decided that anyone that knew the area that well and would go to the trouble of making this home-made video, must be excellent in what she does. I was right. We met and decided on a strategy, including pricing. After that, she took the ball and ran with it. With us being out of state, Mary really helped us with all of the things that we couldn't do for ourselves. Two things that I think really put the property in good stead were her staging and her description of the house and the grounds. The house would show well, but Mary's staging improved it's appeal. Her copy, on Zillow and other publications, invited you to look further at this property. It got a lot of attention and it showed well. She was easy to work with and understood how buyers think. Little issues, like handling a small inspection item, were handled seamlessly.
I have reccommended Mary already on a few occasions and one of the neighbors even said that, if they were going to move, they would call her first. They noticed the extra work and the detail.

My wife and I decided to buy a winter house in Naples. After looking for over 9 months and a experienced a host of different Realtors, I found Mary on the internet. She was the only Realtor to listen to our wish list!! Many of the others we had tried dismissed what we wanted and showed us things that did not meet our expectations. Finally a Realtor that listens!! We finally found the home we loved…. Although there were bumps along the way Mary was extremely helpful and knowledgeable about all aspects of the process. We have bought many homes in Ohio and my wife is a commercial real estate investor…. Mary truly cares about her clients, I can tell you that she is a true PROFESSIONAL!! I have no doubt in my mind that she will meet and exceed all your expectations!!

Mary Horesco helped us both sell a house and buy our new one. She is the consummate professional and it was a pleasure to work with her. She has good knowledge of the area and was always available for consultation. She handled the negotiations for selling and buying in a prompt and efficient manner and we would highly recommend her to anyone for their real estate needs.

It is with great gratitude that my wife and I write this letter of recommendation for real estate agent, Mary Horesco. In more ways than one, Mary made selling our home, and then buying a new home, a wonderful experience. She is very knowledgeable about the local market and was able to get our home under contract in 7 days. We had a 30 day deadline to sell our old home, then buy and move in to a new home, and Mary was able to facilitate that by finding us a lender that could work fast. Not only that but also Mary knew all the right folks in Naples for getting an inspection, elevation certificate, and mold mitigation done fast. All of this was accomplished during Christmas and New Years....this is asking for a miracle in the Naples real estate market. Mary facilitated the acquisition of our own little piece of heaven and on Jan 24th we moved in with 1 day left until our deadline...I would bet Mary works as a real estate agent because she wants to, not because she has to. We highly recommend Mary to not only sell your home but help you buy a new one as well. We could not be happier and are very thankful for all of her help.

We are the proud owners of Mary's most recent sale: 1280 Jardin Drive, Naples, Florida, and we must say Mary is awesome to work with. She stays on track with her working plan and listens to your input. We worked with Mary back in 2010 when she sold our property and now it's been honor working with her again. She is proud of her work and a true delight to work with.

Mary Horesco sold our home before it ever got on the multilist. The price was very fair. Mary helped us prepare our home for sale with excellent recommendations for improvements and staging. She was able to help us and with all of the paperwork and resolved any issues that came up in a timely manner. Excellent Realtor with good local knowledge...

Mary and myself have worked with each other for a little over a year. She is very up to date on the Naples Real Estate. She knows what to ask and when to ask it when negotiating a sale. I would highly recommend her to any one trying to buy or sell in the Naples area.
