It was a pleasure working with Mary Jo during our home hunt experience, we wouldn®t have it any other way! She is everything you look for in a realtor; knowledgeable, resourceful, easy to work with, and most of all patient. We looked at a countless number of homes, she was encouraging the entire time and never once made us feel rushed. If we have to look for another home in our future we will be working with Mary Jo again and will be referring our friends and family to her as well!

We are so glad we had Mary Jo Franzen as our realtor. Because of her patience, knowledge and years of experience selling and buying homes, she was able to sell our larger home and find us a smaller townhome that fit within our budget. It was not only a challenge to find the right place for us in the right price range, but during that time we had a medical emergency that added quite a bit of stress and difficulty. But Mary Jo kept working with us until we found a place that met our criteria. We are now living in it and so grateful to have had Mary Jo with her professionalism, knowledge and patience. If you are wondering about who you should have as a realtor, we would without any hesitation recommend Mary Jo Franzen.

Our experience working with Mary Jo was nothing less than fantastic. We had some medical issues going on during the process of buying our home and Mary Jo stepped up and went over and beyond what could have been expected of a business relationship and turned it into a friend helping a friend. From the first meeting to as we approach our year, she has continually stayed in contact. She took down our needs/wants and emailed us only what was in those guidelines. She prepared with us at our first meeting so we did not have to go out and see a lot of unnecessary houses. She knew what we wanted and kept our focus on that. Because of her knowledge and expertise in the area we were looking at, we looked at 3 homes and made the decision. We were up against a multiple offer situation and Mary Jo helped us put our best foot forward and we purchased our home for a great price and a quick close... Even with some bumps in the road (as most transactions have some) She always handled everything with professionalism and was aware of the process and what needed to be done to get us through. She always had our best interest at heart and because of than we have gained a friend for life. I would highly recommend Mary Jo to anyone looking for a home... She takes the time to listen to your needs and wants and finds you exactly what you are looking for. We love our new home!! Thank you Mary Jo!!

The Best Realtor Around!!!! Mary Jo first sold me a town home in 2012; with a limited budget as a single person I was able to purchase a home on short-sale that fit my needs perfectly. After getting married, my husband and I decided to sell and buy a house on the river. This process was new to both of us and Mary Jo took time to explain every step. Mary Jo wasn't just there to make a sale, she wanted to be sure we found the house that matched our needs and now we are living in the house of our dreams!!! Her patience and dedication is unmatchable and if ever we need a realtor again, I will only use Mary Jo Franzen!!
