"Mary is a fantastic agent and we’d fully recommend her to anyone considering purchase or sale of a Telluride property.  Her comprehensive knowledge of the local real estate market and the community in general provided us the ability to have a high level of confidence in the many decisions we made throughout the process.  Our search extended over 9 months and included looking at a variety of property types – vacant land, homes, and condos.  Throughout this time, Mary was extremely thorough, responsive, and honest. It was clear that her interests were focused on providing our family the best fit possible.  We are very thankful to have worked with her and credit her with finding us the perfect property for our needs!"

Mary Sama-Brown was absolutely fantastic to work with throughout our home buying process in Telluride. Since we live out of state we relied heavily on Mary to oversee all aspects of the purchase of our new home. We were not disappointed! She was very professional, thorough, intuitive to our needs and a real pleasure to work with. We would use Mary for any real estate transaction again in a heartbeat!

Mountain Village Condo Buyer

My family just achieved its long-held, long-postponed dream of acquiring a foothold in the Telluride paradise, and it's hard to imagine that we could have done this without Mary's help. She handled everything--from being attentive and sensitive to our needs, giving sound, realistic advise on properties, answering all our questions clearly, quickly, and patiently, and then, once we decided on a place to buy--a two-bedroom condo in Mountain Village -- smoothly guiding us through the process.  She was cheerful, knowledgeable, and efficient throughout, a pleasure to work with and to have on our side. We'd recommend her to anybody looking to buy or sell in Telluride. - Richard Bernstein, NY

Wilson Mesa Home Buyer

"We have relied on Mary's wisdom and guidance twice in buying property in or near Telluride - once for a condo in town and once for a small house out on one of the mesas.  Her knowledge of the area and various types of properties is vast.  Her willingness to indulge our need to see dozens of places was unlimited.  Once we zeroed in on properties, she did an enormous amount of legwork to ensure that the contracts closed smoothly and/or helped us over various bumps in the road.  After closing she sent suggestions on how to manage things remotely.  She was a sounding board and an invaluable resource.  Honestly, we can't imagine how we could have managed things without her.  She is is truly a consummate professional with a friendly touch." - Chris Wells and Kent Gates, Missouri

The Terraces Condo Buyer

"Mary was wonderful from the beginning to the end. We met Mary during our first visit to Telluride 3 years ago and fell in love with the town and wanted to find a second home here.  We had very specific needs and she paid attention to all our needs. Over the years, she would send me listings of potential places and we kept in touch. She had the right balance of keeping interested and occasionally making contact without being pushy. Finally, when the right property came on the market, Mary moved fast to notify us and we were able secure a wonderful place. She was professional throughout the process and helped us throughout the closing. When you are hundreds of miles away, you need a very good agent to make the process seamless.  Mary even worked during her vacation while we were negotiating the purchase. We couldn’t have done this without her help. Thank you from the Fetters." - Bill Fetter and Sherry Lim, Texas

Element 52 Buyer

"Mary.....all our thanks for your patience, your professionalism and your knowledge of the Telluride market!  For the last several...several years you have been working with us showing us many different types of properties all over Telluride, the Mountain Village and Ski Ranches to educate us about the Telluride market which is very unique.  That was the gift.  Living in Chicago and having Telluride as our winter home proved more difficult but you were always in touch about the market and trends that were happening.  This last October we needed to make a quick decision and  because of all the work you have done for us and how well you know what would be right for us we just closed on a property that we LOVE at Element 52.  We went into this search with your help and guidance and found the perfect second home for our family. We cannot thank you enough." - David and Peggy Orloff,  Chicago, IL
