"I have known Mary and Husband Tim for 9 years and they have helped me with several real-estate transactions. They have ALWAYS been helpful and I can trust everything they tell me about the market or property I have looked at.
They don't tell you what they want you to hear, they tell you what you need to know. I have always valued their opinion. Buying or selling, you want someone that is honest and gives you information you need to help make the best decision. Not just someone wanting to sell you.
Thus they have become trusted and best friends."
Skip, Oregon coast home buyer and seller
"We relocated to the Oregon coast five years ago. Prior to our relocation we researched properties through various websites to familiarize us with properties, locations, and cost. Mary's website was far and away the easiest to navigate and provided the most current information. Once our previous home sold, we contacted Mary and she worked with our limited time frame. We found our home the first day! The home had been listed the day before we saw it. Mary follows the local market with keen attention to daily, even hourly changes."
This year we contacted Mary again as we decided to purchase a rental property. Once again Mary's help was invaluable. The property is exactly what we wanted! I would strongly recommend Mary to anyone interested in real estate in this area!
Lincoln City home buyer
"Mary handled the transaction for a very stressful time. I moved to Lincoln City from out of state, had furniture in storage 2,300 miles away and Mary went over and above what I have ever seen an agent do. This was my 6th home purchase and she had all the information I needed to make this a great move. She exceeded what any agent has ever done for me. Thank You Mary!!!!"
Lincoln City Buyer
"Mary McDonald was not just our realtor but she also became a great friend over the years in three real estate transactions in Lincoln City over the period 2009-2015. A difficult family situation arose which necessitated the immediate sale of my parents' home in Lincoln City and she went above and beyond the call of duty in accomplishing the sale quickly. She was able to get us a fabulous deal on the home we purchased in LC and ditto when we sold it. In both of these two latter situations, quick action was again necessary and Mary and her husband were there to help us all the way. Mary knows the Oregon north coast like the back of her hand and has all the right contacts needed for any situation, i.e., contractors, appraisers, finances...you name it, Mary knows how to get it done. Mary also put us in contact with an excellent realtor in the Portland area, Lisa Chemarin, when my mother's health required we move there. Mary McDonald is easy going, patient (my mother especially adores her) and will exceed your expectations in everything she handles for you. Pick Mary and you will be ecstatic with the results."
The Chase, Lincoln City (Buyers and Sellers)
"Mary went above and beyond what we expected in assisting us in the sale of our home. She gave us timely and correct advice and the house sold quickly. Mary is a true professional, while also being deeply caring and committed to her clients. She was patient and adjusted to unforeseen circumstances (one of the sellers dying). I highly recommend Mary McDonald!"
Marla Marvin, Lincoln City(Seller)
"Mary McDonald impressed us very much. First of all she's always AVAILABLE! 100% professional, straight forward, frank, but also patient & sensitive to our needs."
Marilyn & Allan J. Pacific City home buyers
"We just wanted to thank you once again for all your assistance and guidance in helping us choose just the right vacation (rental) home in Road's End on the Oregon coast. The house warming gifts are wonderful. We can't wait to put the heron on the front porch and hang the wind chimes."
Annette and Lou Schoof, (Buyer) Roads End, OR
"We were very fortunate to have had the services of Mary McDonald to represent us in the sale of our home in Seagrove.
Mary always kept us informed as to the status of the sale so that we knew exactly what was going on.
She always answered our questions and sometimes even went out of her way to help us make up our minds and was always very pleasant about it.
The sale went very smooth and she even checked up on us after the sale of our home.
We feel that she did a great job and would be very happy to recommend her in the future."
Sincerely, Ernest and Marie Kublick, Lincoln Beach
"Excellent in every category. I was delightfully amazed with Mary's unusual abilities in selling my Lincoln City property."
BM, Lincoln City
"We were most pleased that we chose Mary McDonald to represent us in our house sale. She is very knowledgeable and led us in the right direction. Kind and considerate to our needs. Great Team support. We've already recommended her to a neighbor who has now listed with Mary."
Valerie Edwards, Lincoln City, Or
"Without a doubt Mary has to be the best Realtor we have dealt with (and we have bought and sold many houses). In a very difficult time to sell properties Mary kept us in touch with developments, tried many things to stimulate interest in our second home and eventually came through for us. I would have no hesitation in recommending Mary to others."
Alison and Paul Slowey PhD
"Since we had already moved prior to selling our Lincoln City house, we relied on Mary to keep us informed. Everything was accomplished in a timely manner. Mary was very reassuring and eased our anxiety when there were hiccups in the process. Mary is very professional in a friendly way."
Rosalie Bruington (seller)
"Mary was the best ever! I have never had a Realtor working for me with all the homes I have sold through the years that did and went above her duties to get the job done. Mary was there for me every step of the way!"
Cindy Miller, Lincoln City home seller
"Mary's customer service skills are exceptional. If someone were to ask me to describe her in 5 words or less I would say dependable, honest, trustworthy, loyal, and personable."
"Mary, Thank you for making my beach house purchase in Bella Beach so easy! Thanks for answering all the questions & I love the rug!"
Lori Brotherson, Bella Beach (Buyer)
"My best suggestion for a Realtor on the Oregon coast is Mary McDonald. She is complete, gives the best service, has great paper work and is the best there is. She worked in our office in the Taft area of Lincoln City, Oregon until we moved so we know her very well."
Robyn Roloff, VP Sales, Seabrook Land Company
"Thank you Mary, for everything! You definitely went above and beyond on this one. You are now qualified for the diplomatic corps! Also, thank you for the beautiful flowers. Nice touch!"
"Thanx again", Darcelle & Tamara, Lincoln Beach
"Thank you. Between Mary's professional know-how and her husband, Tim's expertise on the internet - my 2 properties were sold within 90 days even though the real estate economy was down in 2010."
Jean Smith, Indian Shores
"We gave Mary our price range, number of bedrooms and baths and the areas where we were interested."
"On the first day, Mary picked us up and gave each of us a packet for every property we would view that day. She began by showing us a vacant lot near Bella Beach in Lincoln County and then proceeded to view other lots and homes in the Lincoln City area. By this time, of course, Mary was able to sense what our likes and dislikes were and was able to prepare the next days’ packets accordingly. By showing us new, old, charming and not-so-charming, we were able to compare what was available to us in our budget range. We bought the original lot Mary had showed us near Bella Beach that first day and built a beautiful home for our up-coming retirement."
"From the beginning, we were at ease with Mary. She is very professional, tireless, conscientious and committed to her work. During the execution of the paperwork, Mary drove twice from Lincoln City to our Gresham area for our signatures. She kept in contact with us, letting us know what stage the paper trail was in, so there was no guess work. After closing on the property purchased, Mary followed up by calling us regarding our building intentions and schedule."
"We highly recommend Mary. She’s a very positive, energetic, professional woman with wonderful people skills."
Sincerely, Pat and Ann Holbrook (Buyer/Seller)
"Mary's approach is sensible, reasonable, & productive. Because of her networking with buyers we sold our Ocean Terrace unit in 1 week. She's great to work with."
