Meet Mary

Mary Palma is the Principal Broker of Palma Group Properties and has been a trusted expert in Northern Virginia/Maryland real estate since 2004.

Throughout years of fluctuations in the real estate market, Mary’s commitment to providing excellent service has never wavered. She is known as a tenacious advocate for her clients, fighting for their money as if it’s her own. As a proud mother of three girls, Mary especially understands and relates to the needs of families who are buying their first home, moving up, or relocating.

Mary receives much of her business from client referrals because she is driven by high ethical standards and a strong work ethic, bringing her best to every client interaction. Mary has an overwhelming concern for protecting her clients’ best interests and is refreshingly relational in order to create a pleasant home-buying or selling experience. She is highly communicative and accessible to her clients, and she is skilled in finding creative ways to navigate competitive market conditions.

Why Hire Mary?

It's a fair question. And the simple answer is you should hire Mary because she has years of mastery over the three key roles she plays as your agents: Mary is your consultant, your negotiator, and oversees ALL the transactional details on your behalf.

As your consultant, Mary leads you through the process of clarifying your values because when your values are clear, your choices are easy. Mary will craft a specific strategic plan to make sure you get the highest price for your home on a timeline that works for your situation.

As your negotiator, Mary treats your money like it's her own. She understands money is an emotional issue and it's her responsibility to recognize the likely underlying agendas, and motivations of individuals that are involved in your transaction. It's in your best interest to have skilled, experienced, and focused negotiator, like Mary, on your team so you'll get the best price and terms for your home whether you are buying or selling.

Mary's third role is to oversee all the transactional details because every transaction has over 100 pieces of paper requiring upwards of 43 signatures and initials. Every 'i' must be dotted, and every 't' must be crossed. You can have confidence knowing that Mary is prepared to handle any turbulence that may arise.

"I'm a first time homebuyer and Mary provided my husband and I with a wonderful experience. She was very attentive and patient with us as we knew little about the process of buying a home. Mary found us a great place that we're thrilled with and she also helped my friend and his family find a rental home. So she does more than buying and selling. She's a very knowledgeable and caring person and I highly recommend her!"

  -Vanessa Chapman, Client

"Mary is an outstanding realtor and my experience with her was wonderful! She answered all of my questions and walked me through the process - I didn't have to worry about anything. She is a delightful person to work with!"

  -Bristow Buyer, Client

"Mary was extremely helpful and knowledgeable when I was purchasing my home. She listens to what you are looking for in a home and works tirelessly to find it. She provides prompt advice on next steps and always with professionalism. If you need to buy a home or sell your home, you will not be disappointed with choosing Mary!"

  -M. Trojaniak, Client

"I cannot say enough about Mary! Mary originally helped us buy our first home and 4 years later helped us sell it and buy another one BIGGER while managing our schedule of 3 kids under 3 and 2 dogs. She organized and planned every single showing to work around our family with no questions asked, she answered all our questions the good/bad/ugly and was the upmost honest agent. She showed us any listing we asked even when the listing went active 5 minutes ago! (Our range or area included houses 1hr away) We LOVE MARY and HIGHLY recommend her!"
