As a resident of the Fredericksburg, VA area for more than 18 years, I bring a wealth of knowledge and expertise about buying and selling real estate in the region. It's not the same everywhere, so you need someone you can trust for up-to-date information. I am eager to serve you. Here are some of the things I can do for you:
Find Your Next Home
You need someone who knows this area inside and out! I will work with you to find the right home at the right price for you, including all the neighborhood amenities that matter - not to mention the essential criteria you have for your ideal home.
Sell a Home
When it's time to move, you need someone who will advertise your home, show to prospective buyers, negotiate the purchase contract, arrange financing, oversee the inspections, handle all necessary paperwork and supervise the closing. I can take care of everything you need, from start to close.
Consult on Home Selling Tactics
Oftentimes buyers don't visualize living in your home the way you do. I can make your home attractive to its ideal audience - which can help you get top dollar. Things like staging the home, making repairs or minor improvements, or even simply painting the walls can be the difference between a home resting on the market and one that's sold fast.

"I am a first time home buyer, which can be very scary. Mary, made sure she had a pre-approval letter on what I could afford before even taking me out to look at properties. I was worried about what I could find. But in 2 short weeks, Mary found my new FIRST home! Mary is always available whenever I call on her. She personable, you are truly getting from her someone that is in your corner. She works hard for her clients. She has consistently gone above and beyond for me. She is honest, if something isn't a right fit, she is going to make sure her clients are aware and informed. She has made this process such an easy experience for me. Anyone looking to purchase a home or sell needs her in their corner!"

"Mary was extremely dedicated and helpful in both buying our new home and selling the old one. She listened to our requirements and did extensive research in MRLS listings to identify the best possible opportunities for homes for us to see. She worked very diligently and and was totally committed to our best interest in selling our home."
-Phil and Annamarie Lapan , Client
"My husband and I pretty much had 1 week to find the perfect home and with Mary we found it on our 2nd day of searching. It was truly a blessing to find the perfect match in such a short time and we certainly couldn't have done it without Mary's knowledge and expertise. She is absolutely great and she will help you find your dream home"
-Makini & Darren Ainsworth , Client
" My wife and I purchased our first home last year and chose Mary as our agent. Without a doubt the best and smartest decision we could have made. Her professionalism, knowledge, work ethic, and attention to detail could not have been any higher. Our purchase was a long and difficult one to say the least, however, Mary kept us informed and up to date on how the process was going. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend her to anyone I know that is planning to buy or sell a home. In closing, I'd like to say that we not only found the best realtor in the Fredericksburg area, but we also found a new friend."
-~ David & Ellen Welborn , Client
"Excellent realtor. Showed us 30 houses before we bought. Always available by phone, ready to show a house on short notice. Gave us very detailed info on comps so we knew how much to offer. Knows the area very well. Would definitely use again if we ever decide to sell."
-Eric and Jennifer Miano , Client
"Mary was completely honest, professional, and available throughout the whole process and beyond. She found us a home and worked every detail of the mortgage and closing and all in under 5 weeks. She knows her business, every aspect of it, but more so is her undeniable reputation in the real estate community that makes her so special. Bottom line - she takes a personal interest in your needs and great pride in what she does and it shows."

"If you are looking for a genuine professional person, with your interest as a priority; Mary is the real estate agent for you! We were buying our home from out of state & on the first day we met Mary she gave us a tour of the entire area. We only had 2 days; so it was a marathon. Mary found us our home, negotiated the price that we were comfortable with and did a lot of the running around that we were not able to do from 7 1/2 hours away. Mary impressed us with her love & knowledge of the area. You will not find a better real estate agent to work with. Even after closing Mary continues to help us with whatever questions we have; we can't wait to relocate. "

"We relocated from California to Fredericksburg due to my job in DC. …After one phone call and never meeting her we knew she was the perfect expert to find our new home….She knew exactly what we were looking for due to numerous email and phone conversations we had with her before we arrived. Mary was great, personable, extremely knowledgeable of the area and a true professional. In 3 1/2 days we looked at 31 houses. Mary was with us from dawn until dusk trying her best to find us the perfect home. …all thanks to Mary.....we found our home! It is everything we were looking for. We have relocated many times over the years and used many different realtors, by far this was our best experience and I would highly recommend if you are looking for a house, to give Mary a call! She will do everything to find you the perfect home. She did for us.......Thanks Mary!!!!"

"Mary is hands down one of the best professionals that I have worked with in real estate or in any other field. I was trying to sell my mother's home in Fredericksburg, VA although I myself live in New York. Mary made the entire process as easy as possible. She made herself available to get all aspects of the sale accomplished... Her knowledge of the market, attention to detail and proactive attitude was a blessing given that I was out-of-town for most of the time. Thanks to her I was not only able to realize a fantastic price on my property in record time, but she was able to provide a certain degree of emotional support for a difficult and personal transaction for my family. She is a great professional, as well as a truly nice person. I enthusiastically endorse her for any real estate transactions in the Fredericksburg/Spotsylvania area."
-Michael Messer , Client
"Her years of experience in different markets really showed in our conversations and when she answered our questions. …she also knows the future plan for the county...I still call her to ask for … and she is always quick to respond, no matter what she is doing. Her integrity is second-to-none. …her promise to her clients is true. ... On a scale of 1-10, I would rank Mary a 12 because she always goes above and beyond what is necessary,...she frequently entertained our four-year-old so we could actually discuss things while looking… My husband and I have each bought houses before this one, and those experiences pale in comparison. The difference is Mary Tibbatts. She puts the "real" in realtor, and I would recommend her to anyone buying a home. We have no intention of moving for a long, long time, but when we do, we will certainly give Mary a call. "
-Brian and Emily Leach, Client
"I began working with Mary approximately a year ago from Okinawa, Japan … it was important for my family to find a trustworthy, knowledgeable, and personable agent that could help alleviate stressors involved with moving and simplify the process of purchasing of a home. Mary portrays all of these qualities and it was a pleasure working with her … Mary is also exceptionally knowledgeable on the area to include local government policies, school systems, local economy, tax rates, and the local lenders in the area... She truly understands the importance of the buyer and stops at nothing to ensure they are protected. Working with Mary was truly a professional experience and I would definitely seek her services again … She is truly a step ahead of here counterparts…"
-~Dale H Webster Maj USMC, Client
"Mary embodies all that is of value in a realtor - enthusiasm, patience and a thoughtful concern for the needs of her home seller. Faced with an uncertain market due to the time constraints associated with our relocation, Mary listened to both our wants and needs ….. Her understanding of both the area and the market allowed us to quickly discern a sales price and marketing strategy … As we prepared to move Mary was generous with both her time and insight, guiding us through inspections and the myriad of documents that were involved. … At a time when so many realtors are concerned with their commission, Mary was concerned with our comfort. Her work ethic is unmatched and her professionalism beyond reproach..... There are hundreds of realtors in the Fredericksburg area - but only one Mary Tibbatts."
