Let’s find your perfect home. For first-time homebuyers and those looking to relocate in the Exeter area and beyond, I know a thing or two about Real Success in Real Estate. If you are considering buying or selling a home in the New Hampshire Seacoast, contact me today!

“When we were looking for a realtor we wanted someone that would truly dedicate their time, effort and skills to selling our home. Mary stood out as one of the best in the seacoast with an excellent reputation and marked sales numbers. She spent hours meeting with us, answering questions and helping us to stage our home for the listing. After photos were taken our listing looked amazing. The marketing efforts that she put forward after that were second to none. She made the entire process incredibly easy. She not only helped sell our house but she helped us find a new one as well. She truly went above and beyond in so many ways. Mary is a true professional and a wonderful person. We highly recommend Mary to anyone interested in selling or buying a home. She is innovative, driven, passionate, and will work nonstop with you to sell your home and make the entire process smooth and easy. She is fantastic!”

My wife and I have now worked with Mary on both sides of the real estate transaction (buying and selling). During the sale of our Home of 10 years, Mary demonstrated an exceptional level of professionalism that was consistently customer and process focused from beginning to end. It was evident that her 13 years of experience in this market has prepared her to anticipate potential issues with the transaction that enabled her to keep the transaction moving forward in a positive and amiable direction. We would highly recommend the services of Mary Strathern for your real estate

We got in touch with Mary during the search for our first home. That was the first decision we made towards owning our house and it was by far, the best. Mary is extremely knowledgeable and made our home buying process a breeze. Not only did she help us negotiate the best deal with the seller, she also connected us to the mortgage company, helped us during home inspection and all the steps in between till closing. Even after closing, she helped us get connected with local professionals to take care of our home improvement needs. We never imagined home buying would be so easy and it’s all because of Mary.

Mary is a very good person and has an excellent personality. She has all the information you need to buy or sell a home. We saw several homes in Exeter. We had flown in and she had scheduled viewing of the homes depending on our availability. She also fitted the homes that fit our budget and area requirements. We also had some requirements regarding the amenities of the home and that worked out great too. We were out of state but being in constant communication with us about the real estate in Exeter, we felt we were able to know more about the town and the properties. She also helped us in getting a good home loan processor, closing agent and took care of such formalities for us too.

We were so lost in the process of buying a home before we found Mary!! She helped us every step of the way, with amazing advice, patience, and humor. Not only did she help us find the house we had always wanted, she truly made the process easy to understand and enjoyable. I would definitely recommend Mary to anyone in the Seacoast area and especially for first time buyers!

We worked with Mary both on the buyer and seller side. She was a trusted advisor from pre-listing to close. A large purchase or sale can be a volatile process but Mary kept all sides on task and moving forward (we even closed on both properties 2 weeks earlier than expected). Her experience and local knowledge was evident at all points of the process. There are very few if any scenarios that she hasn’t encountered in this area. I feel like all agents say they have your interests as their focal point, Mary proved it throughout the process to us. We have been happy to recommend her to friends as a result of our experience with her.

Where do I even begin to describe what a wonderful experience that I had working with Mary? When it came time to sell my house, I called Mary based on her reputation as “the” person you needed to call if you were listing property in Exeter. Her reputation is well deserved as I found her to be proactive, highly communicative, transparent, direct and when needed, aggressive. Mary truly partnered with my wife and I, and guided us through the sale of our house while concurrently identifying appropriate houses for us to consider purchasing in the SAU 16 School District. She assessed what our needs were for a new home and had an encyclopedic knowledge of properties on the market and which ones were worth the time to see in person. She dispassionately provided sound feedback on each house and truly became a trusted adviser. I would recommend Mary without any reservations and will use her again in the future when the time comes to buy a ski house.

I can’t say enough good things about Mary and how easy she made the process of selling our house. Mary is very knowledgeable about the Seacoast area – she knows what types of properties are moving, amenities, prices, and timing. Mary provided excellent guidance on prepping our home for listing. She was extremely responsive any time we reached out to her and she handled the sales process with one hand tied behind her back. I recommend Mary Strathern to anyone looking to buy or sell in the NH Seacoast!

Tammy Irish

We were quite pleased with Mary. In looking to relocate from California, Mary was very helpful in navigating a different real estate market and process than the one we were familiar with. She was extremely responsive – so much so that she made us feel like we were her only client. We appreciated how hard and smart Mary worked for us. Her professionalism. Her responsiveness. Her attention to detail and follow-up. Her patience. Her insights and recommendations. We plan to engage her again.

Dustin Garvey

Mary was a true professional. She was able to fine tune our needs and didn’t waste any time showing us homes we wouldn’t like. Mary ended up selling us a house that wasn’t even on the market yet. She is truly the best and would highly recommend her.

Vanessa Henderson

Mary has more experience buying and selling homes in Rockingham County than any other agent I have spoken to. In addition, she is lightning fast with her communication techniques and when it comes to negotiating, her eloquent assertiveness will put you in a position to get the best deal on your new home! Thank you Mary!

Carl Theodore

Our home was on the market for over 6 months with very little activity… We ended our relationship with that broker and had Mary take over our listing. HOUSE WAS SOLD in two weeks! She is professional, courteous, knowledgeable and reasonable in all matters real estate. I highly recommend Mary for any prospective buyer or seller. THANK YOU Mary!
