We spent the better part of 5 months with Mary searching for homes all throughout Iredell county (to include Statesville, Troutman and Mooresville). Pretty sure we looked at almost every available home on the MLS. Not once did we ever feel that Mary was becoming impatient, irritable or simply tired of being our agent. We were her main focus and she demonstrated endless patience throughout the whole process. She kept the home buying process from becoming overly complicated and frustrating and was never pushy just to get us into "a house". She was genuinely interested in helping us find our home and did everything she could to accommodate our needs and our schedule. Through it all, we found a home and couldn't be happier! Mary helped us to make sure our home met most of the criteria on our list and would work for us. Mission accomplished! We would highly recommend that you use Mary any time you're in the market for a new home. You won't be disappointed!
Working with Mary has always been a pleasure. This is the second home she has helped me purchase. She is very responsive and always gets back to be in a timely manner.

Mary Palmes makes selling a house so easy. She is always available for questions, she gives great advice, based on years of experience buying and selling in our market and our neighborhood, and she gives everything she has to all her clients. We would list again with Mary, or seek her out if we would like to buy. She's an excellent realtor and a such a nice person!

While we waited for our Florida home to sell, Mary led our 10-month search for a new home in North Carolina. She frequently provided customized home searches and patiently walked us through over 70 homes in the Advance, Clemmons, Statesville, Troutman and Mooresville areas. Her knowledgeable of the area helped us in locating our home. This is our sixth home in our 30 years of marriage and we can honestly say that no one matches Mary in her effort for finding the right place for us. Mary is very friendly, a good listener, devoted and very patient. Mary is awesome! We believe Mary to be a top-notch realtor and we highly recommend Mary Palmes!
Mary worked hard for us throughout the entire process of selling our home. We appreciate her professionalism and willingness to help us in so many ways. We highly recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell a house.
Loved my experience with Mary. She did what she said she was going to do, made timely suggestions, and was realistic about pricing and what had to be done to sell my home. I would not hesitate to use her again.
When my sister decided to relocate from Lenoir to the Statesville/Troutman area, we chose Mary Palmes of Allen Tate Realty to help us find a house which suited my sister’s needs. Mary is a true professional who knows the Statesville, Troutman, and Lake Norman areas as well as anyone. She knows about the quality of construction and housing at a very high level. Mary kept us informed at all times and was there for every part of the process. My sister is now happily settled in her new home. I would recommend Mary to anyone needing a realtor in this area.
Mary was great to work with. She is very professional and understands the market and the area. She helped us throughout the entire process. She is a wonderful listener and we truly appreciate all her efforts. I have recommended her to others and will continue to do so because she went above and beyond to help us. Thank you Mary!

We are new to the area and Mary did a good job showing us the market range in terms of home and price. Can't imagine asking anyone else to help.
Cheryl and Ed Swing
We are new to the area and Mary did a great job showing us the market's range in a very limited time period. Her understanding of the market and our objectives was key in helping us make a quick decision-and she is a strong and fair negotiator with our best interests at heart. We can't imagine asking anyone else to help us the next time we are in the market.

Mary was wonderful to work with. She went above and beyond to work with our busy schedule and show us houses that were worth our time. She took all of the work out of the home buying process. We love our home and highly recommend Mary.
Mary's knowledge about the market, communication skills, and guidance from listing through closing was excellent. She was available and stayed on top of everything for a smooth process. Thanks Mary!
We are so glad we chose Mary Palmes from Allen Tate as our realtor. She was very knowledgeable, professional, & encouraging about our sale prospects. She came prepared with information to our first meeting & kept us informed during the whole process. Her suggestions & guidance were spot on. She always answered our questions & concerns in a timely manner. Mary served as a dual agent for us as sellers & for our buyer & communication was key. I would highly recommend Mary to anyone going through buying or selling a house.
Mary has been my agent for quite a few years, and has always been attentive and responded well to my needs. Above all, she exemplifies much patience in her professional demeanor. She knows people as well as she knows her business.
Will continue to call on her in the future, and will confidently refer her to others requiring real estate needs.

Mary did an outstanding job selling my mother's house in Statesville. Because I live out of town, I really needed an agent who could assist with all of the frustrating details of selling a house. Mary was an incredible resource for lining up local contractors, surveyors, cleaning service, and even helped locate an estate sale service for me. I could NEVER have gotten my mother's home sold without Mary Palmes. Thank you!!
Mary is a SUPERB realtor. Her expertise is apparent from the start and put my husband and I at ease during the home buying process. She had an answer to all our questions, even if that meant doing extra research. She listened to all our concerns without judgement and always with a smile. We trusted her implicitly. Mary’s willingness to go above and beyond made the process smooth and kept us informed every step of the way. I recommend her to everyone!
Mary was wonderful throughout the process of selecting a new home. She was very helpful in answering my many questions. Mary never failed to respond in a timely manner. She always looked out for my best interests and tried to insured that I was not taken advantaged of by the buyer. Mary was always prompt to her appointments, I never had to wait on her. She was well educated as a realtor and knew or could readily get the answer you needed. I felt like I could always count on Mary. I felt truly blessed to have Mary as my realtor.
It's hard enough managing the sale of the parents' home after their death, harder even when you live thousands of miles away on another continent. Mary Palmes helped us at every step--assessing improvements that would help sell the property, setting up the listing remotely, help making adjustments to remain competitive in the local market. Once the property was listed, she was extremely available during negotiations with prospective buyers. The final sale was smooth sailing as well. Job well done!
"We really enjoyed looking for our first home with you, Mary Palmes. You provided us with all the information first time home owners need. Although our list of requirements and living situations were complicated, you managed to find us a home that meets all our needs and we are truly enjoying our new home. Thanks.
"Heather had told us how much she liked you personally and how imressed she was with your style and professionalism as a realtor. She was certainly correct. It was a pleasure working with you and especially getting to know you. Again, thank you for making a sell when it seemed impossible. Be assured, we now refer to you as "our realor."
It was an absolute pleasure working with Mary. She was always quick to respond with answers to my questions or concerns. That made the process of buying my 1st home incredibly pleasant and stress free.
Mary did a marvelous job of guiding us through a very difficult process of selling and buying.
We are very grateful for her hard work on our behalf and recommend her to anyone looking for a terrific realtor!
I thoroughly enjoyed working with Mary on a purchase transaction. Her unsurpassed knowledge and experience really helped make the buying process much smoother than most. She has a gentle and kind demeanor and it definitely shows! As a mortgage lender we also desire consistent communication and follow up. No regrets here, I wish I worked with more agents like Mary! Thank you for making our transaction a breeze Jason Wood Mortgage Loan Officer Fifth Third Mortgage 704-696-3423
Mary went out of her way to assure our buying experience was as painless as possible. We felt we had a friend, and not just a realtor. I would definitely use Mary in any future realty needs. She's terrific!
Mary Palmes, We live out of State and Mary Palmes was a person of perseverance, Patience, energy and in every way Thorough. All obstacles along our path to a new Home were dealt with and overcome. A true Professional in the Real Estate Realm. Five Star rating.
Working with Mary was really a great experience. As this was our first time selling a house, we were quite intimidated by the whole process. Mary was always very pleasant and patient in helping us through it. The whole thing was quite pleasant. From now on I will consider Mary my "personal" real estate agent.
Mary Palmes was just what we needed in our search for a home in the Statesville area. I was out of town and while my daughter lived in Statesville, neither of us "knew" the market. After discussing our wants/needs with Mary, she went right to work sending us vital info on all homes that fit our criteria in a timely manner. She did an admirable job in communicating with both my daughter and myself what was available and her input was invaluable as Mary was much more aware of the market that either of us. That formula worked successfully for us in a matter of time the perfect fit was realized. We got the home we wanted and the whole closing experience due to Mary's expertise was done with a minimum of time. We were extremely pleased with Mary's able assistance and guidance through all phases of the buying experience. And yes, we would hardily recommend Mary's assistance if you are in the market for a home. S
Listing my house with Mary Palmes was the best decision I made. She helped me through the whole process of selling my home and made the task less overwhelming. I highly recommend Mary because she is very knowledgeable about real estate in our area. She delivers!
We had a great experience with Mary!!! We love how she kept us updated with any detail about our listing! We would recommend Mary to our friends and family!
We are really happy and satisfied with the sale of our previous home and purchase of the new one; all this with the assistance and help from Mary! She made this process go as smoothly as possible for us! Totally will recommend Mary Palmes to our friends and family for their real estate needs.
Mary Palmes was knowledgeable, accurate, genuine and extremely professional. I would recommend her totally and trust her and her extremely honest approach to clients. Jerry Jones
I can't imagine having any other realtor with us through the process. Mary helped us buy and sell a home and always provided us with what we needed. She gives great feedback and walks you through each step, giving you every detail you might need. She has so much experience, knowledge, and great connections, so everything was a breeze!
Mary Palmes was our selling broker for our home last spring, as well as our buying agent last month!! She was patient, encouraging, honest, and professional in every aspect. In selling our house...she helped us set a reasonable price and gave us ideas for staging and improvement. As we looked for our next home, she gave us valuable advice without being pushy or opinionated, always giving us plenty of time to browse in the homes and ask questions. We highly recommend Mary whether you are selling or buying. She is outstanding on both a personal as well as professional level.
Mary, It was so good to have such a caring person, always so kind and able to answer all questions and helped me in so many ways. if I ever need a home in your area be sure that I will call you. May God bless you! Geraldine You get a 5 star from me
Mary kept us informed thru the process. When somthing comes up and it will she handles it quickly. She knows the Statesville / Iredell market. That's why year in year out she is one of the best.
Mary went way beyond her normal realtor duties to ensure that the sale of our home was successful. Her grace and patience with everyone involved was amazing. Her continued support and follow up was outstanding. She also had plenty of local resource contacts for us to use in preparing our property for sale. Thank you for a job well done! Eddie
