What they


Carlton – California

Very friendly agent and long time resident of the area, so she knows the homes and proper values. Very responsive to our needs and helps with handling any problems that may come up with the transaction. We have also used Mary for the purchase of our home.

Nancy & Dean – California

We have a story that really sums up how impressed we were the first time we met Mary. It was approximately 2002, and we were looking at homes in the Desert. Being from Kansas, we definitely had to rely on an agent who would help us find the area to buy in that would suit our individual tastes and needs. Mary took us to see several homes at that time, and we were impressed with her pleasant personality and expertise.

Our lives took a different direction for the past 13 years, but we saved Mary’s real estate card and knew that when it came time to buy a home we would only be interested in buying a home from her if she was available. We called her in March of this year, and after a re-introduction over the phone we met Mary and purchased a home through her. We wouldn’t have used anyone else. She is a kind, honest, and knowledgeable real estate agent who knows the Desert so well. She took the time to listen to what our lifestyle needs were and found us the perfect area.

Mike & Lupita – California

We had a condo to sell in a tough market, at a tough time, and we couldn’t be happier with the results. It started with great staging advice from Mary. Then, fantastic photos followed by excellent advertising and open houses. It resulted in a sale of the property, when we really needed it to happen. Mary is great!

Jim & Wendy – California

Mary Williams is a 5 Star Realtor! She definitely has the local knowledge necessary for finding the right home but it is her ability to get you through the process (ugh) with such ease! What you will consistently hear from Mary is “don’t worry it’s all taken care of” and it is! Whether buying or selling a home you will spend a lot of time with your Realtor and you will be happy to spend time with Mary She will get the job done and it will be right. We just can’t say enough great things about her!

Andrew and Cori – Washington

Mary helped us locate, purchase, and move into our vacation home in PGA West. She is incrediby knowledgeable about La Quinta and the greater Coachella Valley real estate market. But more importantly, she listened to our priorities, helped us identify a property perfectly suited to our needs, and moved quickly to enable us to put in a competitive and successful offer in a multiple offer situation. She is highly efficient, detail oriented, cool under pressure and responsive — a true professional and delight to work with. And post purchase, Mary has continued to assist us with referrals to her personal network of service providers. We cannot recommend her highly enough!

Thom – California

Thank you for all your hard work and diligence in getting this done in a timely and efficient manner.

Tim – Washington

My wife and I engaged Mary Williams to represent us in both the sale of our existing residence and the purchase of our new home. From start to finish, Mary provided a high degree of professional and value added service. We have been involved in numerous real estate transactions throughout the years and believe that Mary greatly exceeded our expectations. Because of her energy and dedication to the projects we closed both transactions well within the time frame we desired.

Of particular note was Mary’s ability to stage and decorate our home for sale. She did a tremendous job and almost convinced us to cancel the sale and stay where we were.

Not only will we be using Mary in the future but would highly recommend her services.

Brian – Washington

Mary, We are interested in exploring the purchase of a home in the Legacy Villas development in La Quinta. We saw your listing, MLS # xxxxxxxxxx, and decided to contact you (over the other agents and real estate firms listed) because, frankly, your marketing materials and website reflect a higher level of experience and sophistication. (I also enjoyed the balance of humor and communication skills in your bio.)

Walt – Virginia

Mary, unbelievable service … you have such an ability to translate desires into reality: style, design and price. The very best real estate experience ever!

Belinda – England

We are delighted that you found such a special home for us. We have rather high personal service standards in England but you surpassed in every respect.

Suzanne & Fred Mazurek – Arizona


Suzanne and I were so happy. We really can’t thank you enough for the work you put into getting the Buyers to complete the deal–It is truly appreciated. Without your efforts in coordinating with the Buyers, I don’t believe we would have gotten to the finish line.

Diane Barrett – California

Mary Williams is a reliable, informed and experienced realtor. Her clients are confident in her abilities and rely on her expertise in understanding the Coachella Valley real estate market! I highly recommend her services.

Donald R. Brown, DDS – Colorado

Mary listened to our concerns and needs and made no comments until she did her market research. She immediately made definitive recommendations which we followed, the result being a cash offer to close in 15 days during a very difficult market. Her handling of the paperwork was exceptionally smooth but MOST IMPORTANTLY, she took the time to properly introduce the prospective buyer to the unique advantages of this property and how it fit into his lifestyle. She made several trips to the property with the buyer at different times of the day to show the sunrise and sunsets, lighting etc.. Mary even served drinks and snacks to his family in the evening to allow his children to enjoy the pool. How many realtors can boast this? Excellent work and integrity is what Mary offers, thanks so much.

Tony & Diana – California

If we were looking for other property Mary would be our first call. From the first time we met Mary for our initial house hunt in early September until escrow closed last week, Mary has exceeded our expectations. She showed us properties that met out needs and was extremely helpful in negotiating the sale. After escrow opened Mary stayed on top of things and was of tremendous assistance. Mary was a real professional and it was a pleasure to deal with her. She was very helpful and supportive but didn’t exert any pressure on us at any point.

Entrepreneur – California

Our experience with Mary was great. Mary was extremely knowledgeable. We appreciated her honesty and forthrightness, and are grateful to her that we ended up purchasing our place in La Quinta. She was a delight to work with and more than met our expectations.

Commercial Brokers / Real Estate Investors – Oregon

She was very professional and friendly. We instantly liked her. The thing we liked most about Mary is that she won’t tell you what you want to hear, but what you need to hear. Mary is very knowledgeable, very friendly and has become a very good friend of ours. She’s enthusiastic and knows the area. She answered all the questions we had for her. We highly recommend her to anyone coming into the area.

Real Estate Investor – Washington

I watched her negotiating style and that really impressed me. I bought and sold properties for 40 years and her style is the best I have ever seen. Mary is devoted to all her clients she represents and she works tirelessly to find just the right property for them. Her thoroughness is very impressive. Mary has a great personality and knows her business.

High Level Professionals – California

Will only work with her in the future for any real estate dealings. Even if we’re working on something out of her geographical area I would endeavor to retain her as a consultant.

Everything went like clockwork thanks to Mary. All expectations exceeded. Mary’s flexibility, personality, helpfulness and especially experience in all areas have made our home buying very enjoyable. Working with Mary was and is a breeze- easy sailing. I am overjoyed at my fortune in having a “chance meeting” at the golf course with Mary. I won’t work with anyone else.
