"I moved from San Francisco, to NY in the fall of 2013 with my husband and 2 sons under 3 years old. I had 6 weeks between when we found out we were moving to when I landed in NY. It was not much time to figure out where to live and find a place. After much research I settled on Larchmont and on a cold call got Mary Gail, and that was a gift. I didn't know if we should rent or buy and had no experience in Westchester. After many conversations and tours of rentals and for sale homes in Larchmont, Mary Gail, assessed our situation and suggested we rent in a managed building with more flexibility close by until we got here and got settled. That advice was invaluable as it gave us time to get here and relax and get to know the area before diving in. The market was quite hot so we immediately started looking to buy to understand the local market, it because quite clear that we were not going to get what we wanted for our price. The first house Mary Gail showed us had been on the market for a while, was well in our price range but to the "world" had a few flaws. Mary Gail helped us see the potential and talk us through the potential cons and helped us secure it in a very quick time-frame on the terms we wanted. She was very positive, honest and never got pushy despite how quickly the market was moving. We are first time homeowners and had no knowledge of anything. She helped us with local contacts and answered all of our questions no matter how big or small. We would recommend her to anyone. She really listens to what you need and want and what your range is and gives you all the options. This is very important as buying a home can be stressful. Thank you Mary Gail!"

"Mary Gail Barry is a gem in the truest sense of the word! My wife and I walked into her office unannounced one Sunday afternoon seeking apartment-hunting guidance. Within thirty minutes, she booked two viewings for that very same day. Her professionalism, warmth, dedication, and assistance is unparalleled. The place we were interested in (and ultimately ended up acquiring) necessitated significant, laborious paperwork. She guided us every step of the way and followed up frequently to check on the status once everything had been submitted. Our gratitude to her is immeasurable."

She was delightful to work with at each step of the sales process, understands the Larchmont real estate market and guided us expertly through the process. Her intelligent marketing counsel resulted in rapid sale of our house. We cannot recommend Mary Gail enough.”

“We recently moved from London to Larchmont. We called Houlihan Lawrence and were assigned Mary Gail Barry and this proved to be our good luck. Managing limited viewing times from London was not easy, but Mary Gail did it. With an accurate assessment of what our desires were she managed our 2 half day visits with precision. As she had selected a perfect assortment, we found our home with ease, after only two visits to Larchmont. We went back to London and Mary Gail took us through each step of the process. Everything went smoothly. She fortified us with Larchmont knowledge so that we already know the short-cuts! Thank you Mary Gail.”

“It was our pleasure to work with Mary Gail to find a perfect home for our family. Mary Gail understood what young families from NYC are looking for when they are moving to Southern Westchester. Mary Gail always made herself available to show houses during the week and weekends. Mary Gail was always accommodating even when it was to show one of my parents a property just for a second opinion. She has a very good working relationship with other brokers in the region and will use leverage when necessary. She patiently worked with us as we looked at houses and eventually decided to buy land and build a house. We would highly recommend Mary Gail to anyone looking for that perfect home in Southern Westchester, as well as any young couples/families from moving from the city."

“I would absolutely recommend Mary Gail. She is great with details and is a pleasure to work with. She knows the town and the market and has a great eye for what a home is really worth. She helped us narrow down the market so that we could make an informed choice when we were ready to buy...and when we found an almost perfect house, she helped us envision how, with a few tweaks, we could make it our perfect home. Then, when we were ready to put our existing house on the market, she made sure we had everything ready to go in less than a week. And we got a great offer after only 2 days on the market!”

"After looking for a couple months, we bought a house in Westchester. Somewhat apprehensive after multiple dealings with real estate brokers in the city, Mary Gail turned out to be knowledgeable, professional and helpful. She knows the area in and out, listened to what we were looking for and helped us narrow down our visits to houses we liked. She always made herself available for our weekend trips to the area and even helped us find a contractor, gardener, architect, movers... Her experience was invaluable in getting the right house at the right price and she made the process enjoyable. I would wholeheartedly recommend her for any kind of real estate transaction in the Westchester area!”

“Mary Gail knew our needs that well and was able to create so much trust that I decided to rent a house without having seen it, but solely based on her advice. That to me is the ultimate result.”

"Mary Gail worked with my family purchasing a house in the Larchmont/Mamaroneck area. We found her to be very attentive to our needs and tastes, and insightful enough to help us refine and expand our interests in directions we might not have considered. She also demonstrated a detailed knowledge of data available for the houses we looked at, and was a tremendous asset in researching properties that we were considering. She is professional, punctual, and helpful with all steps, including providing local vendors we'd need once we moved in. We would happily work with Mary Gail again, and would wholeheartedly recommend her."

“Mary Gail was fantastic in assisting us in our search for our first home! We really connected with Mary Gail, and she was great at figuring out our needs and desires in a new house even when we could not put those needs and desires into words. She is extremely knowledgeable about Larchmont and the surrounding towns in southern Westchester, and proved to be an expert of all things related to the Westchester housing market. Mary Gail was more hard-working, thorough, and friendly than we ever could have hoped for from a broker. We would highly recommend Mary Gail to anyone looking for a broker, and we will be excited to use her as our broker in the future. You can’t find anyone better. Thanks Mary Gail!”

"As a first time buyer and not knowing much about the housing market I had the privilege of meeting and working with Mary Gail. She was very patient and accommodating when showing different properties. She guided me in the right direction, recommended other professional people that aided in the sale of my apartment and constantly sent me updated information regarding new properties that were for sale. Anyone interested in buying any kind of property, I would highly recommended Mary Gail not only for her professionalism but her kindness as well."

"Mary Gail Barry, my real estate broker with Houlihan Lawrence, was simply amazing! Her familiarity with Larchmont was integral to our ability to sell our home in the midst of an historic housing downturn. We were able to sell our home without taking a financial loss which is even more incredible. She knew what the market was projecting as far as pricing and demand and her faith and support never wavered, and because of that, neither did ours. I would gladly recommend her to any of our friends looking to get the best deal possible in town. Thank you Mary Gail!"

"When my husband moved from Mamaroneck to Kansas City, we retained his home as a rental property. After a couple years of ”landlording" from 2500 miles away, we chose the bold move to sell the property in the middle of a very challenging market time. Our initial listing with a different realtor produced almost no results over the course of a year. We were frustrated and almost at the end of our rope. Then...Mary Gail was referred to us. Within one week, we had more communication with her than we had for the 12 months prior. She immediately went into action for us! She surveyed the property, made solid yet frugal recommendations for staging, provided us resources, intervened with our renter, and even handled a critical issue on a week-end while on vacation! She was absolutely our advocate and an extension of our presence since we live so far away. Within 3 weeks of working with Mary Gail we sold the property very near our asking price. And all of this without even meeting face to face!!! Mary Gail’s attention to detail, sense of urgency, no nonsense yet VERY pleasant communication, industry savvy, and just plain hard work are attributes that cause her to be an extraordinary realtor! We would recommend Mary Gail to anyone who is serious about buying or selling!"
