Buyers’ Agent, New Home Specialist
I have been lucky enough to call the Columbia area my home for all of my life. From an early age, custom homes and new construction have interested me – I have always loved walking through homes that were under construction and looking at the floor plans, visualizing the final result. When I began my career in real estate, it was only fitting that I would specialize in new construction homes.
After graduating from Lexington High School, I pursued my Bachelor’s degree in Graphic Design and Visual Communications at the University of South Carolina. While attending USC, I worked as the office manager at the Real Estate School of South Carolina. There, I learned everything there was to know about South Carolina real estate laws and practices, and I built relationships with many agents across the state. After nearly seven years at the Real Estate School of South Carolina, I finally decided to become a licensed agent.
Once I obtained my real estate license, I continued working at the Real Estate School of South Carolina, while also working as the marketing director for a senior care agency. Working as the marketing director allowed me to develop strong communication skills and taught me the importance of building and maintaining relationships throughout the community.
My experience working in marketing and customer service gives me a unique perspective on how to help you find or build your perfect home. My personal mission is to lead you through a stress-free buying process from start to finish, ending with you living in the home of your dreams.
She Had Our Bests Interest At Heart
There are not enough words to describe how grateful we are to Mary Courtney for guiding us through our first time house buying process! Although we went into the process feeling nervous and uniformed, those feelings quickly changed as soon as we met with Mary Courtney. She valued us and informed us and advocated for us every step of the way. She was available to show us many homes, and finally we found our perfect first home. She was so knowledgeable and it was evident she had our bests interest at heart. Inspections and the closing process could easily be a stressful process for some, but with Mary Courtney’s guidance and the information from the ART of Real Estate, the process was very smooth. We could not be more grateful!!
Brad was always available for questions and answers and had no issues with looking at all of the properties I wanted to see.
We had a tall order, moving our home and business from NH to SC. Mary Courtney guided us along the way with such great care and the experience of a pro. She always had access to her amazing team for all our unique questions and needs. I wouldn’t have wanted to go through this process with anyone else. Don’t let Mary Courtney’s sweet southern charm fool you, she is an on-the-ball agent who is efficient, responsive, knowledgable, and resourceful.
Followed Up Very Quickly
He followed up very quickly on everything we asked of him. If he did not have an answer to a question, he got us an answer very quickly. He worked beyond normal working hours to get what we needed.
Absolutely Loved Working with Michael
My husband and I recently purchased a home through Michael DeVita. We absolutely loved working with Michael. His calm, patient manner was a great help to us while we were looking for our first home. He walked us through the process step by step. We very much appreciate how easy he made this! It went quickly and seamlessly. We had a wonderful experience.
We are very happy we chose Michael as our realtor and absolutely recommend him to our friends and family.
Josee and Trevor Madison
Mary Lane and her team are phenomenally professional. She was thorough in helping us with our home search and then even as we chose our home – she ensured that we got everything that we wanted. We had not even thought about a number of the details that she helped with. She is extremely punctual, friendly, and absolutely trustworthy. Before we purchased our home, she helped us sell our first home. We now think of her as a family friend.
So Impressed By Her Sincerity
We first met Mary Lane at an open house and were impressed by her sincerity. So we invited her to visit our home and interviewed her (and others) for the job at hand (selling our home). Her team – Brad Allen & Mary Lane conducted an informal and formal inspection, helped stage our home, and created a nicely designed listing. We received our first offer in three days – what we wanted with a clause to leave our home in 30 days. Mary Lane stepped in again to negotiate a bonus for us (since the buyer wanted to move in quickly), arranged for a professional attorney, and all the arduous stuff that goes into selling a home. She then did something we never expected – she helped us move into temporary housing and stayed in touch with us till she helped us purchase our dream home. Her access to the right resources is amazing and Mary Lane is an absolute professional.
Helpful and Informative
Michael was very helpful, and answered our questions. Very informative to new home buyers.
Organized & Accommodating
Everything from start to finish was easy and organized. Sid was very accommodating, answering all of our questions, taking time to understand exactly what we were looking for, and making his schedule fit ours. He was with us every step of the way and made the home search and buying process as stress free as possible. We highly recommend Sid Mithal and The ART of Real Estate Team!
I was so impressed with the ART team from start to finish! Selling our home in 6 weeks seemed inconceivable. The pictures of our home were beautiful! I loved receiving a notice when someone entered our home. Bryan was always there to answer any questions and really worked to get us a contract. I love how everyone at The ART of Real Estate worked together for our benefit. I will recommend this team to everyone I know!
