About Mary Vallely

Welcome! My name is Mary Vallely and I’m glad you’re here.

Buying or selling in today’s real estate market can be complex, stressful and time-consuming. At the same time, it is an exciting and rewarding journey. A home purchase is one of the major financial decision you undertake. I’m here to assist & guide you.

*If you’re a SELLER what improvements will bring the best return and value to the sale?

*If you’re a BUYER how do you purchase the most value for the least amount of money?

The answer to these questions and many more can be found in working with me.

Sellers and buyers deserve expertise, skill and care. I will be your trusted partner.

How you as a SELLER benefit from my skill:

• I will work to get you the highest price for your property in the shortest amount of time and inconvenience.
• I will negotiate hard for you and never represent someone negotiating against you! I don’t practice “Dual Agency”.
• If you are an investor, my experience as an investor buying & selling will prove valuable.
• If you are plus 55, my guidance and counsel is done with utmost care and understanding. We move at your speed. As a “Senior Real Estate Specialist” I’m a great hand holder if necessary.
• I will create a marketing plan for your home that is personalized and effective.
• I am with you every step of the way…from start to the closing table.

How you as a buyer benefit from my skill:
• You and I will discuss (in person if comfortable) what you are looking for in a home, your timeline and the strategy to accomplish your goal.
• You will receive a customized home search of the entire market.
• You will receive daily updates of any new listings that come on the market meeting your criteria.
• We will evaluate if this purchase will appreciate and be good for resale down the road.
• When we find the right home or property, I will guide you through every step of the process and be with you from start to finish.
• I will assist you to find financing!

If you’re still reading this, which I hope you are, here is some other information about me as you consider if I’m the right person to work with you.
• I was born, raised in Chicago and currently live in Lake county. I specialize in Lake County, Illinois and know it inside and out. Having lived in Chicago most of my life it is another market I am comfortable working in.
• As a former teacher and Peace Corp volunteer, empowering others is my passion.
• I have bought and sold nine properties as investments
• I’m full time and full speed ahead for you.
• Knowledge is power and I want you to “Know What I Know and Be Empowered”

I would love to hear from you. Let’s sit down and map out a strategy to accomplish your real estate needs. Please contact me at our convenience.
