    “Mary Ann Griffiths was my realtor, and I cannot praise her enough. Not only did she put her heart and soul, her energy, and her knowledge into selling my home, but she also put that same energy into making sure my home was presented as attractively as possible. As a realtor, she is unique. She really cares about her clients!”

    “We live in Texas and were looking for a second home for our family by the beach in Southern California. When looking for an agent, we knew that we needed one that understood our needs, understood the local market and one with great communications skills. We found just that with Mary Ann and PJ. We did find a home that we loved but our timing was off, and we didn’t get it. Although very disappointed we continued our search. They did not give up! One day we received a call from Mary Ann. She said, “We found your perfect home. Book a flight and see it asap. It was love at first sight. It matched all our needs and more!”
