Mary presented a variety of options in homes and led us to the one selected. Was very responsive to our requests for information and followed up very carefully the work performed following the inspector's report. After the sale had closed still provided assistance with questions about the new home. I would highly recommend Mary as an agent.
My wife and I could not of asked for a more caring and professional Real Estate agent. We looked at multiple homes and Mary was very informative during the home touring process.

When we decided to list our home, we knew we wanted to list with an agent knowledgeable about our area and specifically Park Crossing. Park Crossing is such a unique neighborhood with so many great features that we wanted someone familiar with it. Mary was definitely that person!After interviewing several other real estate agents, it was clear that Mary had the best marketing plan that not only emphasized our home's features but did so in a way that gave us great exposure with little effort on our part. Mary did so much, so quickly, that the process was simple and effective and resulted in a quick sale.She gave us a quick turn around with the property value, our to do list to get ready and her strategy to sell. Literally we had the offer within one week of our first meeting! And she was able to get us full asking price which told us that her careful market analysis gave us the immediate results we expected.Her market knowledge, positive attitude, prompt attention to detail and responsiveness to our calls, texts and emails made this the smoothest real estate transaction (and we have had seven previously) ever.And Mary is one of the nicest people ever! Very friendly, easy to talk to and down to earth. We became fast friends. (Even our dog fell in love with her as she graciously played with her while the appraisal was being done!) Mary always went above and beyond.Recommending Mary is a pleasure. She will take good care of you and make the buying or selling process easy.
I don't know where to begin! Mary is amazing! From the initial visit I knew she was the person I wanted to work with. She offered her assistance to me to get my place ready to list. It sold the first day. After two weeks it had to be re-listed due to buyer financing and it sold again the first day it was listed again. I was moving out of state and had to get rid of most of my household stuff, including furniture. Mary, her husband and her son came on a Saturday to help me do an estate sale. What didn't sell Mary listed on her Facebook and Next Door site. "Now really when does that happen?" All this happened in four weeks. Mary was by my side all the way! She made me feel like she was my friend not just my Realtor.
Mary was willing to help my husband and I whenever we asked any questions. She’s very responsive and friendly, and definitely has a lot of knowledge about interior/exterior features of different style of homes. Her availability was also extremely flexible. She was willing to show us homes almost any day of the week, so we both really appreciated that with our busy schedules.

Mary Shumate is an incredible professional and a wonderful person. She helped us get comfortable with the area and find the right home for us. Since this was our first home buying experience and we were living in another state, Mary was a godsend as she managed all the inspections and the closing process.Honest, trustworthy, and personable!
Sara & Wes Grigston
Mary was so wonderful! We have worked with other realtors that could never compare to her. She was always available to take us to see homes anytime we wanted or needed. She also didn't waste our time on houses that she didn't think we would like and would go look at homes in her free time and report back if they were something we should see. She was always available and gave great advise. She not only sold our house but also helped us find the perfect house we were looking for. Would highly recommend her to our family and friends!
Mary was very knowledgeable about our market. We took all of her suggestions and our home sold in a day! She was prompt to respond to all our questions and needs. She was fun to work with.
Mary Shumate is an excellent real estate professional, very helpful in all phases of buying a home.

We can't speak highly enough of our experience with Mary Shumate. We were buying a home with very little knowledge about the area since we only recently moved to Charlotte. Early on in the search process, we knew instantly that Mary was the right agent for us. She is honest, funny, and dedicated, and she really helped to take the pressure off of us to make sure we found the right property. Mary walked us through every step of the process, even suggesting that we write a letter to the sellers to explain why we thought they should choose us. It was an unconventional approach but it worked and we thank Mary for that! We now have our first home and our kids have a place to grow. We would recommend Mary to everyone!
Mary was professional from start to finish. I loved the way she thoughtfully anticipated my needs and went above and beyond to meet them each step of the way. I highly recommend her for your home purchase or sale!
The “one stop shopping” model at Allen Tate worked well for me! Very helpful, professional and thorough.
Brooke & Adam Hensley
Mary was a tremendous asset in both selling our home and closing the deal on our new dream home. She understands what it takes to properly prep a home for sale, which was instrumental in delivering multiple offers above our asking price. She knows the Charlotte market well, and she proved more than capable of effectively handling both sides of a real estate transaction.
Emily and Justin Carinci
What a pleasure it was to work with Mary! We are grateful to her for helping us both sell our home and purchase a new one to love. Mary was professional and quick to respond to any questions or concerns we had throughout the process. She is very knowledgeable about the current market in Charlotte, and went above and beyond to help us find the perfect home for our family. She’s not only an experienced agent capable of handling real estate transactions, but also easygoing and fun to work with. We would highly recommend Mary to everyone!
Thanks so much to Mary Shumate! She was such a pleasure to work with and to have as my real estate agent. My Mother had moved into a retirement community so I really wanted to sell the property quickly. Mary did an excellent job of marketing my property, explaining the contract to me and always got back to me immediately when I had questions. She is honest and very hardworking. I would definitely recommend Mary and will use her again in the future.
Mary has been my agent for my last three real estate transactions! Her expertise made my experiences fun, easy, and stress-free. I recommend her very highly!
