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 had a friend who had a terrible experience trying to buy a house with another realtor. I had my friend meet with Mary to talk about what happened, and to give her hope that she could find them a house! Not only did Mary find them their dream home...but Mary got them connected to her awesome team, who got them incredible rates and they closed in RECORD TIME!!! I am so indebted to Mary's dedication and professionalism... because she not only got them a house but brought happiness back into their home."

"Mary Palma was an absolute pleasure to work with when purchasing my very first house. The property I bought was only on the market 2 days and she got the buyer to accept my offer of $10k less than the asking price. Even though the property was being sold "as is", she still negotiated and got them to agree to cover the repairs from the inspections. She definitely was great at working for her client, which is something I had not had when working with other agents. Before I found Mary, I had been working on purchasing a home for 3 years. Luckily in the end, I found Mary who helped me quick, encouraged me to not give up, and helped make my dream of owning a home come true. I would truly recommend her to anyone!"

"Thanks to Mary Palma for helping me buy my first house, I’m very pleased with their work, very professional and responsible. Without a doubt I recommend them!"

"Mary was extremely excellent to work with. I was a first time home buyer who was nervous and inexperienced. She immediately put me at ease and made the process as smooth as possible. She made my first time home buyer experience perfect. We looked at over a dozen houses. She was with me during all the walk-throughs'. She knew the type of house I wanted. She did a wonderful job meeting me for showings on weeknights and weekends away from family time. I am so happy she was my agent."
