Testimonials

When our family moved to the New York area, we worked with real estate professionals all over Westchester Co., Fairfield Co., and Manhattan. Maryann Petrescu stood out as being professional, knowledgeable, personable and above all was exceptional at listening to our needs. She was encouraging every step of the way, and we were always comfortable giving her feedback as we went through the home search process. She indeed found the right home for us, and we would highly recommend Maryann to anyone buying or selling a home.

Douglass and Lisa-Marie Hatcher, Scarsdale, NY

What a privilege to write a testimonial on behalf of Maryann Petrescu, who was absolutely fantastic as our licensed agent for both the purchase and the sale of our homes. Maryann, whose "word" is her bond, served as a brilliant "coach" during the entire process. Her attention to detail was second to none. Her knowledge of the local real estate market was superb. Her personal touch was extra-ordinary. Because of Maryann's professionalism, we were able to secure a terrific agreement on the sale of our house and a wonderful deal on the purchase of our new townhouse. I would recommend Maryann to anyone who wants to work with someone who is sincere, honest, knowledgeable and possesses an amazing work ethic. She is elegance and excellence personified. Thank you Maryann for making a the difficult process of selling and home buying, go as smoothly as possible.

Hi Maryann, Just a little note to say that you did a fabulous job marketing our condo and getting it sold! You kept in touch with us to make sure that we were aware of all the steps taken which made things so easy for us. Thank you again for everything you did for us during our condo sale. You go above and beyond for your clients and we are so grateful! Many thanks!

Chrystel Desposati and Edward Hannon

"We would like to specially thank Maryann for her great effort to help us achieving our dream of becoming a homeowner. Not only did she offer us invaluable and professional advice, but she was always the most encouraging person to talk to when things didn't go the way we hoped. She has always been there for us to consult on many aspects of the process. We were confident that we were in good hands. Again, we much appreciate Maryann's effort and commitment. We highly recommend Maryann to help you buy or sell your next home."

We were lucky enough to stumble upon Maryann in our search for a new home about one year ago. She is honest, professional, reliable and always had our best interest in mind. Maryann made us feel like we were her only clients and always seemed to be available to meet or talk with us. Despite her busy schedule, she put in extraordinary efforts to clarify issues which vital to our purchasing our property. Even with her keen sense of the market, extensive knowledge of every listing in the area, and extremely pro-active approach, she maintained an unusual charm and warmth that both my husband and I appreciated every step of the way. Even our children looked forward to seeing her! We couldn't get enough of her, so not only did we purchase our home through Maryann but she is the exclusive listing agent for our home we are currently trying to sell. We decided to list late in the season and she was able to get it photographed listed on MLS and had a brokers opening within 3 days!! She continues to draw multiple showings and follows up with the viewers agents within a few days. I would highly recommend Maryann with absolutely no reservations. Every interaction with her is a pleasure!!

Maryann was patient and professional with our family when I'm sure we would have driven other realtors absolutely nuts. She always made us feel at ease and was willing to go the extra mile to make sure we were comfortable with any decision we had to make and her advice was always on point. Highly recommend!

Darin Karakananda - November 28, 2017

I worked with Mary for a short time but it was a wonderful experience. She is very knowledgeable, honest,patient, flexible and a great communicator. The time period was short because as soon as I met Mary within 2 weeks I found my dream home. So if you're looking for someone who has your best interest at heart she is the realtor to work with! Without hesitation I would highly recommend her!

Julia G - November 24, 2017

I've worked with Maryann many times on both purchases and sales of my residences over the last 25 years. She is knowledgeable and easy to work with. She is also very patient and has expertise of the lower Westchester county area. I would highly recommend her.

Pasqua Lina - November 20, 2017

We had an amazing experience working with Maryann! We were new to Westchester and clueless about home buying. We met Maryann after going to an open house and immediately we got the strong sense that she has to be our agent. She was very patient with us (and I mean it: we were carrying 2 small kids with us all the time and she never complaint about the fussiness; we were available only certain times of the week), she was always available to answer our questions, she changed her schedule so we can see houses late evenings or in week-ends. Maryann took care of everything during the negotiation process, house inspection (she was there when the inspector came and she gave us very useful tips), closing, and even after closing. We absolutely recommend Maryann to anyone looking for some peace of mind when buying a home!

Denisa & Victor - November 20, 2017

MaryAnn is very professional and sold my house in 4 months. She did a good job advertising the premises. She was particularly helpful during the final aspects of the sale which involved inspections and paperwork. I was not in the area to provide access to the premises for multiple agencies and she was always available to step in and helped the closing go smoothly. Thank you again

M Pick - November 10, 2017

Maryann is extremely knowledgeable in the Scarsdale real estate area which was a big benefit in helping us sell our home. We had listed our home initially with a different realtor who was unresponsive and dropped the ball on several occasions. We then worked with Maryann who made the sale smooth  and easy. She was there for us when we called or an issue came up which needed immediate attention. I would highly recommend Maryann in the purchase or sale of your home

teerago - July 21, 2018

I and my husband highly recommend Maryann as the best realtor in this area. We worked with her for few months prior to find our house. She was very passionate about showing us different types of houses, never in a rush although she was very busy, she always pointed to us the pros and cons for each  of the houses that we saw. Her experience and knowledge played a significant role in our final decision. Thank you, Maryann!

Denisa Elena - July 21, 2018

Maryann took the time to get to know my husband and I and what we were looking for. We started with a broad search and was able to narrow it down to a few towns. Given the time we were looking, it was incredibly competitive and she guided us every step of the way. She continued to keep our personal  interests in mind but also helped us realize and guide us on what we needed to do to land our dream home. Maryann went above and beyond to be there for us any time of the day, show us any house we wanted to see, get us in the house the day it hit the market, and walked us through the buying process which was extremely helpful as it was our first home. I never felt any pressure to pursue anything, she checked in regularly and was very prompt with all communication. She is incredibly reliable, trustworthy and professional. She helped us find our dream home and we can't wait to start our family there! I would recommend her for all of your real estate needs!

Ashley & Jay - July 21, 2018

Maryann was always there, always ready to help, lucid in her explanations of marketplace reality and the house-selling process, energetic and good-natured even as we dealt with a difficult potential buyer. She was always supportive and attentive and when outside problems arose, she knew exactly who  to call, providing names and numbers. I'd rate her as topnotch by every measure

Steve Zousmer - July 21, 2018

Maryanne is an excellent realtor who I have relied one since 2014. She has helped me with 3 real-estate transactions in the neighborhoods of Scarsdale and Greenburgh. She is personable, detailed, honest and diligent. There is no-one else in Westchester County that can work harder to sell your  current residence or to buy your future family home. Highly recommended!

Fernando Evelson - July 21, 2018

Maryann was such a pleasure to work with and comes with our highest recommendation. After years of horrible agents in Manhattan, I was skeptical, but Maryann quickly put those concerns to rest with her professionalism, friendliness, responsiveness, and attention to detail. This was our first home buying experience in Westchester so we had a lot of questions and concerns. Maryann made us feel comfortable throughout the entire daunting process and took the time to answer any questions we had honestly and addressed our concerns with kindness and knowledge. She quickly earned our trust through her actions, making it clear she wanted what was best for us instead of being just another sale

Josephine & Miguel - October 3, 2019

It was a pleasure to work with Maryann to sell our home. She kept us well-informed throughout the process, and her calm demeanor kept us from losing faith during the difficult market conditions. Her extensive knowledge of the Scarsdale market was instrumental in staging, pricing, and negotiating. I appreciated her honest and thoughtful feedback. Selling a home is an emotionally fraught experience and Maryann was our guiding light.

Politi - October 3, 2019

Maryann was an absolutely amazing agent for us. She guided us through the entire process with incredible communication, diligence and care. We would highly recommend her!!

It was a pleasure working with Maryann. She is professional, very knowledgeable with regards to the local market, is a great communicator and gets along very well with everyone. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking to sell or buy a house. Maryann made the process of selling our house very easy.

"Maryann was amazing! At the start of COVID she was able to not only secure a deal for our dream house in a competitive market, but expertly navigated the ever changing shutdowns and barriers presented by the pandemic. She connected us with great resources (attorney, contractors, etc.), and ensured we were represented and our needs were met. We cannot recommend her enough!!"

"Maryann is every thing you want from a real estate agent: well connected, has great advice, and moves fast when a market is hot. To top it all off, she is a great person and someone we will always recommend without hesitation. We are very glad we found her for the purchase of our first home. She will walk you through every step, no question is too stupid, and her attention to detail (permits, house history, title) is unsurpassed. Hire her!"

"When we started to looking for a house we were working with different agents and it was not really easy and unsuccessful until we found Maryann. She was professional, responsive and knowledgeable. She has also a nice personality and understand what people need. She always found a time for us even on holidays. We were very pleased to work with her and are happy in our new home! We definitely recommend her to everyone!"

"Maryann Petrescu is an extremely competent and skilled broker who navigated the sale of my house with poise. It was an older home that needed the right kind of advertising and respect to be marketed correctly. Through her close relationship with other brokers, she found the perfect young couple to give the house new life. Throughout the challenging COVID year, Maryann, worked tirelessly, together with me, to get the house sold. I highly recommend Maryann. You won't be disappointed."

"Maryann has our sincere gratitude for helping us both purchase and sell our home. We have worked with Maryann for both transactions over the years. She is our to-go agent in the area. Her professionalism is utmost: seasoned, knowledgeable, attentive and caring. She always listens to our needs and proactively puts herself in our shoes when helping on our search for a property. With her depth of experience and knowledge of the local areas, her guidance always addressed our concerns, and doubts. She is also attentive and caring. She patiently pays attention to details of our specific needs and situations and makes sure the houses to show us are the right ones for our needs. When we sold our home, her ability to gather interests and execute the deal in our interest propelled us to a successful sell in a tough market. In short, Maryann makes hard and involved process of real estate transaction a pleasant and contented experience for her client.

"Maryann has an in-depth knowledge of Scarsdale and what is going on in the real-estate market in Westchester. She was able to guide us through the midst of pandemic and a tough time to find the place we now call home. She was able to weigh in with an honest opinion (whether we would need some renovation or how the area would suit us) about all the places we saw. She would go to key places in the neighborhood like schools, shopping areas, and parks around a particular house since we were not at all from this town. We followed her valuable insight in in putting forth our offer, signing the contract, securing insurance and mortgage and finally closing on the purchase. She was also quite helpful post that purchase for next year or so to get us acquainted with the town's policies and procedures."
