As a Northeast Columbia native and recent University of South Carolina graduate, I have loved being able to call Columbia my home. It is here where I spent my formative years building on my ability to help other people. I have learned how to be attentive to a customer’s experience from my time waiting tables, and enjoy taking the time to discuss what is important to a client through our initial conversations.
My past experiences have molded the skills that I believe are important not only in everyday life, but helpful towards the service expected from The ART of Real Estate. The Columbia community has exposed me to understanding different types of people with all types of views and interests; which made growing up here even more exciting! Whether it be figuring out where you are in your home search process or wanting to know where I think is the best place to get sushi, my goal is to be there to guide you into the right direction at anytime.
Mimi Was Fabulous!
Mimi was fabulous! She was able to adapt to our unique situation and ran with it. Moving from out of state was very stressful, but Mimi made sure everything in the buying process ran smoothly. She explained every step along the way and always made sure we felt comfortable. Mimi toured a home that just hit the market for us when we were in NY. She took so many photos and videos for us and we were able to get a great sense of the house. It ended up being the house we bought and we were so grateful she made it possible for us to “see” it!
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!
