I contacted Mary when I first began looking in the Traverse City market.  I was moving from out of state which can be nerve wracking.  Mary was so patient and helpful along the way.  

I had a very specific list of criteria and what I was looking for.  Mary helped sift through the MLS listings to find those housed that met most of my criteria.  In less than 2 months from arriving in Traverse City I had an accepted on the home of my dreams..  I cannot be happier! 
Mary is extremely hard working and willing to go the extra mile for you.  She is knowledgeable in all closing documents and will represent your interests well.  Her attention to detail is appreciated.  
Overall I give Mary a 5 Star rating!!

Mary was very accommodating to our limited availability in our search for our new home.  She is very knowledgeable of the area and offered us very good advice.  Thank you Mary for helping us find our dream property.

We worked with Mary from out-of-state, attracted to her website because in a simple fashion, we could include several counties in our search, while isolating both a price range and type of dwelling. Speaking with her on the phone and sensing her sincerity in understanding our circumstances, helped us ask that she work with us.   She also immediately maintains all listings, and once knowing your desired areas, continues to make postings to your email. 
We initially requested the majority of several of her days, as we would be flying in for a short period of time.  She outlined our viewings by area, making additional suggestions beyond our requests, and would offer  insight to weigh, as well as remaining enthused.  On a return trip several months later, she again 
gave us her support and attention.  She left no question unanswered and demonstrated thorough attention to detail and legal knowledge as we pursued the process of purchasing our condo.  Her comfort with the realty profession was exemplary.

It would be our pleasure to send our recommendations for your help in locating a property up north! We appreciated your hard work and patience with us through this process. As a matter of fact, we have provided your name to friend and co-worker who have indicated an interest in a retirement property in the Leelanau peninsula.

Mary was an outstanding buyer's agent for us. We got involved in a short sale that turned into a foreclosure and it was a big mess. Mary not only helped us to understand the technicalities of the process, as first-time buyers, but she also stayed on top of the progress of the listing as it fell through the rabbit hole of the foreclosure process. We were able to make our offer first when it came back on the market. She is very thorough and works hard for her clients. Karen and John Storms-Rohm
"We are very grateful for your hard work on our behalf.  You certainly found what we were looking for.  I'm sure we'll be happy for many years on the Lake.  It was great working with you and I hope to send you business for all our Ann Arbor friends." The Standifords
"We recently were fortunate to utilize the services of Ms. DeWitt as our buyer's representative. It is a peaceful and enjoyable place to be.  The process of getting here, however, was not so peaceful.  In fact, I might never have taken place without the knowledgeable and forceful interventions of Ms. DeWitt on our behalf.. You see, our home was a bank repossession that had sat vacant for a year.  The bank simply was non-responsive to any communications and the bank's selling representative was almost as bad.  They had a "take it or leave it" attitude.  Despite their negative tone we were able to complete the purchase,  but only because Ms. DeWitt never gave up on us.  She continued to facilitate communications with the selling agent through all roadblocks he established. She was diligent in inspecting both the documents and the property itself to make sure our interests were best served since we were buyers coming from out of state.  We could never have completed our purchase without her help.
We found Mary DeWitt to be the consummate professional.  She is prompt in returning phone calls, knowledgeable concerning legal ramifications of Michigan real estate purchasing, poised and polite  when dealing with recalcitrant seller's representatives, and just a generally intelligent and positive person. 
My partner Barbara and I recommend Mary DeWitt to you without reservation.  Please contact us should you desire further information." Roy Bernier, Jr 
Thank you for the patience with me through our recent transaction.  We enjoyed your upbeat spirit and gusto.  We wish you the very best, Mrs. Broker,  Once again, congratulations. God love you Mary,  John and Lorraine
