Clients are saying:
"Mae is a very professional yet personal realtor. She is very good at what she does and is very easy to work with. She does make sure she gets everything done correctly and worked closely with us to ensure that we were happy with the progress. She went above and beyond what I have seen in working with another agent previously. I do and will continue to recommend her."
"Mae was extremely kind and concerned for my needs of a home that I was looking to purchase along with answering questions for me that only an experienced realtor could have done, if I had to do it all over again Mae would certainly be my only choice. So when I know of someone that happens to be selling or buying real estate Mae Watts Parrish would come highly recommended by me. THANKS AGAIN MAE"
"I am a home Stager, and have worked with Mae on several occasions to get her listings and her personal home Staged to Sell. We have had great success together, as Mae is very knowledgable and knows what it takes to get a property sold/rented. She has extensive knowledge of the market and thinks outside the box to achieve great success in selling. She is a great person and very easy to work with"
"Mae helped us sell two townhouses after our mother's death. Mae was great, kept us informed, and succeeded in getting our buyers for each place in the same weekend at a good price. I strongly recommend her."
"Our townhouse had to sell using the short sale process which is difficult at best. But our deal had complications which the attorney you recommended, successfully resolved. You took the time to understand our needs, communicate clearly and concisely and showed lots of patience as we progressed through the sale process to the closing table. Thank you very much for helping us to sell the townhouse as quickly as possible. Were grateful and will recommend you to our friends."
