Mary Lynn Stenzel is a Gem!

Mary Lynn Stenzel is a gem! Mary Lynn was our broker when we purchased our Desert Highlands home in 1997. When we decided to consolidate our real estate to two homes in 2013, we listed our Desert Highlands home with Mary Lynn.

There are several key roles that a seller’s broker can and should play, assisting in:

(1)    Setting a listing price. Mary Lynn is realistic, recognizing that setting an unrealistically high listing price will limit the pool of interested buyers and will encourage unrealistically low initial offers. In our case, we sold our home with a discount of less than 3 percent from the listing price. Most of the Desert Highlands homes listed at the same time closed at prices more than $250,000 below the initial listing prices.

(2)    Developing a marketing strategy to maximize the exposure of a home to other brokers. In our case, Mary Lynn’s marketing served us extremely well. She scheduled special broker viewings, created engaging marketing materials and networked extensively with brokers beyond those associated with her office. We had multiple potential buyers through brokers who typically didn’t focus on the Desert Highlands community.

(3)    Providing guidance in “staging” a home to maximize its visual appeal to potential buyers. In our case, with Mary Lynn’s assistance, we were able to avoid the additional cost of engaging a home staging decorator.
(4)    Engaging a photographer who artfully, but still realistically, captures the features of the home, including the entrance, outdoor space and interior highlights, in order to maximize the on-line “hits.” When the initial photographs of our home were inadequate, Mary Lynn took the initiative to engage another photographer who did an excellent job.  Her carefully composed on-line presentation resulted in nearly 9,000 on-line hits and simultaneous offers.

(5)    Managing the process of showing the home to potential buyers to minimize the inconvenience to the sellers. In our case, Mary Lynn pre-screened potential buyers, engaged the potential buyers during every showing to assess their interest and promptly followed up with their brokers to respond to any questions or concerns. 

(6)    Providing sound strategic advice. In our case, Mary Lynn helped us navigate simultaneous offers and to sell to at a price well in excess of the first offer we received. 

The process of selling a home can be traumatic. In our case, we came away with a very positive outcome and a very good friend, all thanks to working with Mary Lynn.

Your Were A Tremendous Help!

Sale of 24350 N Whispering Ridge Way, # 46

I wanted to take this opportunity to thank you for the outstanding service in selling our parent’s home.
When we lost our second parent and found ourselves faced with selling a home while living out of state, we faced a difficult process.  We needed to remove our parent’s household goods, refresh the house with painting and staging furniture, as well as donate a great number of items. 
You were able to accomplish all of these challenges without any assistance from us, You were a tremendous help.  The refresh and staging were so beautifully done and the video you prepared for the sale of the home so professional, it resulted in the buyers submitting a bid sight unseen.  You managed the negotiation so that the buyer ultimately agreed to pay full asking price as well as a 7% non-refundable deposit. 
Closing was ahead of schedule without the usual drama. Overall, an outstanding process and terrific result.
Thank you for all you did.

Thank You For Your Dedication!

Mary Lynn,

Just a quick note to thank you for your hard work and dedication shown Carol and myself over the past 31 years.
From our initial beginning, you finding us the ideal Holiday vacation property during our Son Erik’s ASU days, in the mid 80’s, to scouring and securing for us the perfect location to build and purchase our first home in AZ in 1998. Your endless pursuit for perfection for each and every client you encounter in the world of real estate is incomparable.
And then the climax in 2013, where you successfully listed and sold our home, in an unstable market, securing for us a positive outcome, and in the end, a favorable outcome for the sometimes over demanding couple who purchased our home.
If we are ever in the need for someone to find a property for us in the future, it’s a comforting thought to know that you are only a phone call away.
Thank you once again for just being you, real estate would not be the same without you as one of it’s major players.
Carol and E Lee Smith

Mary Lynn Is Experienced, Thoughtful and Fun to Work With!

We were represented by Mary Lynn Stenzel when our house was sold in April, 2014. Her professional and effective help and advice resulted in an expeditious and fair sale of the property. As inexperienced as we were in selling real estate, we would have made unwise decisions without her counsel. She was able to identify a prospective buyer early in the process, which resulted in a successful and trouble-free sale. Later when we requested duplicate documents for tax purposes she responded within 24 hours.
We would not hesitate to recommend her services to others seeking a real estate agent. She is not only experienced, but thoughtful and fun with which to work.

Mary Lynn Conducts Her Business With The Highest Level of Integrety

The  purpose of this· letter is to give  recognition to a valued colleague and  friend, Mary Lynn Stenzel, for her professionalism and commitment to excellence in the real estate  community.
I have known Mary Lynn since starting my real estate career 25 years ago, and I can tell you that it is rare to find an agent like her who  truly embraces the code of ethics that we all pledged when we first became a Realtor. Mary Lynn consistently conducts her business with the highest level of integrity, and represents her clients with not only strong work ethics and professionalism, but, more importantly, compassion. She truly cares about her colleagues and her clients.

She also has a generous heart when it comes to assisting other Realtors as I have personally discovered on many occasions.   There are very few Realtors who  I would trust to handle my business and Mary Lynn is one of  them. I believe you will find it a pleasure to  work with  her whether you are a buyer or seller, and you will be glad you did!

Our partnership to assist each other when needed will continue, and I would recommend her to become your partner in real estate, too!
