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.

"Mary Palma has been a true professional over the last 10 years we have worked with her! Our family has greatly appreciated her dedication and hard work throughout the process of selling and buying two different homes. She is always there to answer any question and makes the whole process run smoothly. I would recommend her to anyone who needs real estate assistance!"

  -M. Solomon, Client

"We want to thank you sincerely for all the work and professionalism you have put into helping us find our home here in the Northern Virginia area. We honestly expected no more than a business transaction, someone to sell us a home with their bottom line in mind, but what we got from you was so much more. As an active duty military family, having gone through this process twice already, we were just amazed at the level of professionalism and thoughtfulness you put into this experience. You treated us with true professionalism and respect. You LISTENED to us, rather than trying to sell us, in your efforts to find for us exactly what we were looking for. And, you were always available when it was convenient for us, never pushy, and consistently working with us to ensure a great value for the money we were spending. You also made the home buying experience easy, by providing us with proven references for reputable local lending and title companies, all of whom were also very professi"

"Mary did a fantastic job for us in helping us sell our home in Northern Virginia. Her efforts on our behalf were "5 Stars". She assisted with the staging of home, provided beautiful pictures of our home, demonstrated strong negotiation skills and attention to the many details of the closing of a home. I would highly recommend her to anyone interested in buying or selling a home she would treat you and the sale or purchase of your home with the upmost respect. "

  -D. Olkowski, Client

"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."
