"Mary Lou Skowronski – “Agent Mary Lou” as we fondly called her, proved to us that she was more than capable and successfully achieved positive results as she effortlessly dealt with Guardianship and Probate proceedings, multiple Attorneys, Subcontractors, Stagers, and a myriad of Governmental and Regulatory Agencies and overcame all obstacles encountered during the complicated transaction and compliance requirements. Without hesitation, without complaints, and with a very positive attitude.
Agent Mary Lou under promised, and over-delivered. Among her many outstanding character traits that she possesses are her honesty and strict adherence to all professional ethical duties and obligations that should be expected from a realtor. Moreover, she provided personal services that exceeded her legally binding obligations, relating to protection of assets (furniture and personal belongings), the sale of furniture and the reduction of maintenance expenses, through her referral network and resolved collateral conflicts that arose during the process.
We highly recommend Mary Lou Skowronski to any seller of high-end property that seeks to receive the highest value from a professional agent at Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices California Properties."

“Agent Mary Lou was extremely helpful and very knowledgeable about the real estate market. My mother was considering making a purchase in the Newport Beach area as a second home. As a fellow licensed agent in Nevada, I wanted to make sure my mother was going to be working with a real estate agent that could answer all her questions, and devote the time my mother needed to make this decision. Mary Lou was very responsive to all of our needs, providing us not only with properties that were available, but also with suggestions and information regarding her market. It has been a pleasure as both a real estate professional and a client to work with a real estate agent as dedicated as Mary Lou. There is no doubt in my mind that she treats all her clients with the utmost of professionalism and integrity and one would be lucky to work with an agent of such caliber.

"From day one, Mary Lou worked so hard for us and went above and beyond to sell my mom’s house. She was ready to jump in and tackle the NOD mess we were in at the beginning, and her negotiation over the problems discovered in the buyer’s home inspection helped save the deal and made everybody happy. I am so pleased and relieved that the sale went so quickly and is behind us now. Mary Lou attracted a solid buyer, negotiated a good offer from them, and we were able to open escrow in just 21 days...amazing!!!
I truly appreciate Mary Lou's level of professionalism, integrity, and honesty. I am also really impressed by the fact that when she doesn't know something for sure, she says so and then use her resources and does the research to find out. That to me is the sign of a true expert and one I can trust!
Thank you, Mary Lou, for your support and guidance through it all. I knew I was in good hands every step of the way. Agent Mary Lou is the BEST!!!"
