Mary Jane Moran is as much a friend to me as she is my Realtor, but what a Realtor she is! Almost four years ago, she helped me through the process of buying my first home, and just a few days ago, she helped me sell it. She's a savvy negotiator, knowledgeable about the process, and extremely insightful on market trends. She helped me invest in a buyer's market, and she helped me capitalize in a seller's market. I couldn't be happier with the experience I had buying, owning and selling my condo with the support and assistance of Realty Austin and Mary Jane.

We moved from San Francisco to Austin and needed someone we could trust being first time home owners. Mary Jane Moran was able to give us a great understanding of Austin and what made sense for our growing family. She took care of us until the end when we found our fantastic house! We had a lot of questions about the process, and she was always available to answer our questions and concerns.

Mary Jane treated me more like a family member than just a client, and whole heartedly advocated for me every step of the way! She was so knowledgeable and attentive and made a stressful first time buying situation bearable by her words of encouragement and cheery disposition. She checked in with me frequently to keep me informed along the way, and I honestly know that no other Realtor could have done what she did. She came highly recommended from a friend, and I'm so glad I reached out to MJ; she was the best! I have now been in my new home for a week and can't thank her enough. She went above and beyond, and I will definitely recommend her to friends and family!

It will likely come as no surprise to you that Mary Jane exceeded my expectations at every turn. Her professionalism, experience, availability, responsiveness, diligence, and talent for communication are unparalleled. Mary Jane was incredibly helpful in leading me to discover for myself exactly what it was that I wanted, what I did not want, where my priorities were, and why.

Mary Jane Moran helped me find my wonderful new condo in South Austin. She really was not just a wealth of knowledge about different neighborhoods and builders, but she had the patience of a saint. This was key because, frankly, I had no idea what I wanted. So, she took me to a ton of places and helped me explore the options, listened to me as I weighed the pros and cons, offered her sage advice. When I finally was ready to make an offer; she was fantastic. The woman is supremely professional, and a fantastic negotiator. She stays in constant communication through the whole process; following up on every detail. I am really so pleased with how things ended up, and I doubt it would have been so smooth and successful without her representing me. Thank you, MJ!!

Mary Jane was a great advocate for Amanda and I. She is very well informed of the home buying process and makes sure to put her clients' best interests first. She advised me without trying to control my choices and ultimately always let me make the final decision. She did not hesitate to voice any concerns or hold people accountable when it came to making the actual down payment. I am very happy in our home and appreciate Mary Jane for her help. I look forward to future real estate endeavors with her.

MJ and team are the best! We've been working with MJ now for several years on a couple properties. The first time, she sold our house, and the second time around she helped us with purchasing a new home a few years later. She is the ultimate relationship builder, perfect negotiator, and extremely knowledgeable. MJ offers the greatest advice coupled with just a great personality. Responsive team that you can tell understands real estate and even more is empathetic to the stress that can come with home buying and selling. The process is always smooth and so easy! Love working with MJ and will hands down utilize her services in the future. I cannot recommend more!

Mary Jane is a "God send" !  She is excellent at her job and knows Austin real estate.  She is professional and courteous and always there when you need her.  She goes beyond the call of duty to look out for her client. On this piece of property, there were multiple contracts.  I was not the highest nor the lowest bid.  Due to MJ and her abilities I was chosen as the buyer.  There is no doubt in my mind that it was due to MJ and her ability to close a deal.  She just doesn't give up representing her client!  As a buyer, that is exactly what you look for in an agent.  I will be selling my current home next year and I would not trust it to anyone other than Mary Jane.  I cannot say enough positive things about her! I hope Realty Austin knows how fortunate they are having MJ on their team.  Mary Jane is the best in Austin!

Mary Jane was wonderful to work with. I was going through a divorce and needing to get our house sold was not another stress I wanted added, and with Mary Jane’s help it wasn’t. She took all the stress of selling the house away, which helped a lot. She worked with me each step of the way and her open communication during the entire process made everything easy to understand. She was always there to answer any questions that I did have and the walk me through the processes as we went. As this was my first time selling a home, she totally made me feel comfortable with the process. I can’t thank her enough for all her hard work.

Mary Jane sold two houses for me in less than four days each. She prepared carefully before we listed it but it paid off because they were the best they could be and sold very quickly with multiple offers. She got each house out in front of the potential buyers on the web and other media and it paid off. Mary Jane was great about communicating with me since I was several states away from Austin and I really appreciated that. I was very happy with all of her efforts and now consider her a realtor that I could easily recommend to a friend or a stranger.

Working with MJ Moran was a wonderful experience! We recently decided to relocate from the east coast to Austin, TX. My husband and I had never been to Austin and were very unfamiliar with the different neighborhoods, so finding a knowledgeable Realtor was very important to our situation. MJ did a wonderful job of understanding what was important to both my husband and I. Before visiting the city to house hunt, we spent a lot of time speaking with MJ over the phone and looking through listing together so that she could best determine which neighborhoods would be right for us. Once we arrived in Austin, MJ spent virtually the entire weekend house hunting with us. She brought us to multiple neighborhoods around the Austin area and made sure that we gained a full perspective of what each area had to offer us in the short 2-day time frame that we had in Austin. One of the things that I appreciated most was MJ offering us a third perspective on the houses we were seeing. She did a very good job of allowing us to form our own opinions on the different houses/neighborhoods we toured while also pointing out things that otherwise we may not have noticed -- such as a neighbor that has a home car washing business set up in their driveway. Two days and about 25 houses later, we found the house we wanted! The sellers in our situation really put us through the ringer. MJ did a fabulous job of keeping the line of communication open and not rushing any questions that we had throughout the process. She even worked on Mother's Day to negotiate with the sellers and took our late night calls to make sure our contract stayed on track. We recently closed on our house and are very excited to relocate to Austin. We are very thankful to have found such a knowledgeable and dedicated Realtor to help us find our first home. MJ and Realty Austin exceeded our expectations and I would highly recommend to anyone in need of a Realtor.

Mary Jane and Samantha were amazing to work with both with the initial purchase and design of our new home and also when the time came to sell our old house. They are a huge asset to your team and I am so thankful for all they did for my family! Anytime I hear of a friend that is thinking about selling their house and moving, I recommend Mary Jane if they do not already have an agent! Thank you to Realty Austin for your service!

Mary Jane is absolutely wonderful. Since this was my first time buying a home, she took some time in our initial meeting to walk me through the entire process and was always there to answer any additional questions I had. She was always readily available to show houses I had interest in (which was especially helpful with the Austin housing market like it is). She definitely had my best interests in mind when it came to making offers and letting me know her true opinion on homes. I honestly could not have asked for a more awesome Realtor to help me find and purchase my first home! I would without a doubt use MJ for any future real estate purchases and recommend her to anyone looking to buy in Austin!

I had an unexpected opportunity to purchase a home newly on the market in my dream neighborhood. I called MJ and she was on it through multiple bids, down to the wire (and I mean down to the wire) negotiations through the contract process, to making sure I had things I needed in the house when I arrived from out of town. She really acted as my advocate through the process and ensured I was advised of the important risks before signing on the dotted line.

MJ helped my partner and I sell two homes in Austin as we were making plans to move to a “forever home” out of state. He had been in his home for nearly 35 years, and I had been in mine for 15 years so there were a lot of logistics to manage.

I can say that MJ guided us through the sales process with a minimum of fuss and drama, and ensured that we sold our homes for more than fair value. Her friendly reminders and inquiries as to status kept us and the potential buyers on track. In addition, both homes needed some remodeling in order to be shown to their best advantage, and she gave us good feedback about how to go about that.

If you have MJ represent your real estate transaction you can expect good results.

I have been reading testimonials on the Realty Austin website and on others, just like I did when I was considering selection of a Realtor to sell my house. I find now, and I found then, many platitudes about many Realtors, all listed in sequence. Truthfully, such platitudes, all reading somewhat alike, were of no help to us in selecting a Realtor. We felt a coin flip would do just as well in a random selection of those with glowing reviews.

We were fortunate that our son knew Mary Jane Moran, having engaged her to buy his present house. He was very complimentary of MJ, both personally and professionally. He arranged for us all to meet on a Sunday afternoon at our house. We made our choice then and there.

We created a plan to do some necessary repairs ( wood/paint/glass) to our 26 year old house. These improved it's appearance and got it cleaned and polished. It looked very attractive with great curb appeal. We did no upgrades (appliances, wallpaper, paint, carpets, everything except the ACs, were original). We did no staging. We, the sellers, in fact moved to Houston, and the empty house was shown as is.

We closed on the cash sale in 35 days at just 2.5% under the listing price. That is our testimonial to Mary Jane Moran and her team.

Results are the best platitudes!! They are produced by skill, preparation, experience and professionalism.

Mary Jane has been an invaluable resource throughout our home-buying process. Her knowledge of the market and attendance at all of our meetings with our builder made it clear that she is an advocate for her buyers. With so much going on in our busy lives, it was comforting to know that Mary Jane was looking out for us from start to finish. We are moving into our new home this week and couldn't be happier!

Great partner in the business of selling my home in Austin! I had long been an absentee landlord, having moved from the area ten years ago. And I was used to getting work done from a distance, having a standing relationship with a general contractor. But MJ pulled the whole thing together for me, from the preparation for sale, the market research and positioning, all the way through to a speedy closing.

While I was moving back to the States from overseas, she and her team helped me find a design consultant to evaluate what work to take on, a landscaper to prepare the outside of the house, and a stager to help prepare the inside. After connecting me with a network of experts, she continued to advise me on the recommendations the rest of the team gave. As we discussed the merits of each investment made in preparing the house, her eye was always on maximizing my sale price and minimizing the time the house was on the market.

Once the house was listed, we had regular discussions about both the web-based traffic and the physical visits the house was getting. While I continued to travel overseas for business, MJ did a masterful job of keeping me tied in to how things progressed throughout, even helping me manage a response to an offer and counter-offer as I was passing through airports to make connecting flights.

Our forecast of how long the house would be on the market was accurate. The time we forecast to closing was accurate. By the time the deal was done, I had received multiple offers and even went to closing with a back-up offer still in hand. I can't say enough about the value MJ and her team brought to the whole process!

The thing that most impressed me about MJ is that she was careful to do the right thing in the right way, throughout the process. That is the secret of success in all things. She also went the extra mile to followup with the seller's agent to make sure they fulfilled everything promised during the negotiation. Very well done.

Mary Jane guided me through the process of selling my first home, after 30+ years of ownership. She managed to do so from start to finish, within a 30 day period, for a greater sum than anticipated, and despite the lower comps in my neighborhood. Mary Jane is a consummate professional, and was readily available, never once failing to return a call or correspondence, and even worked with me long distance during an extended period of travel, to assure that all matters stayed on track. She will definitely be helping us this Fall with the sale of another property. I highly recommend her when you are searching for an Austin realtor with extensive experience in, and knowledge of the local market.

I used Mary Jane Moran to buy a house back in 2012 and most recently to sell that house and buy a new one. Thanks to Mary Jane we actually sold our house before it was even listed on MLS. She also talked me into listing it about $20-$30K higher than I had anticipated, which turned out to be the right move since it went so fast and we got full asking. Mary Jane also worked her magic to get us under contract on a house my wife and I fell in love with in Circle C. She was able to set up a viewing within the first 24 hours of that home being listed and within a few hours of seeing the home, she had our offer submitted. Mary Jane was hosting a dinner party that night, but found time to right up our offer just a few hours before her guests arrived and actually took time out of hosting her own party to negotiate with the seller's agent. We had the house under contract that next morning. We can't thank her enough. The Austin market is extremely competitive, but she knows how to get deals done and is currently 3 for 3 on my deals. I'd recommend her to anyone looking for home in the Austin area.

As first time home buyers, purchasing a house is a daunting process. With so many things to handle, it can be very overwhelming. Mary Jane was absolutely wonderful in helping us find our first home. She sat down with us and prepared us for everything. Her attention to detail, and knowledge of the housing market in Austin, was second to none. We truly felt taken care of every step of the way. As difficult and as stressful as this process can be, Mary Jane did everything she could to make it easier. She was truly our advocate during the negotiating process and always made sure we were comfortable with decisions before they were made. We highly recommend bringing Mary Jane along side you in your home buying process, no matter what stage. She is absolutely fabulous.

This is the second transaction in which I've worked with Mary Jane. In this transaction, I was the seller. Mary Jane is very efficient because she is organized. Mary Jane responded timely to the buyer's document requests and questions. She kept me informed and updated at all times. She was easy to get a hold of and responded promptly to my emails and phone messages. Mary Jane's guidance during the negotiating process made for a very smooth transaction.

We're very satisfied with Mary Jane's expertise, grace and dedication to enable us to successfully conclude on our home purchase. She definitely met and exceeded our expectations. Due to our overseas status this home purchase was more complicated than normal and we could not have got it done without Mary Jane's help - she did a fantastic job and we're delighted with the outcome.

Tom and Maria Ferguson

September 2014

My wife and I were relocating from the San Francisco Bay Area to Austin Texas for work. We had never been to Austin Texas, or Texas at all for that matter.

So it's safe to say, we needed someone with experience who we could trust.

Mary Jane went above and beyond in both of those categories. She did an exceptional job getting to understand specifically what our requirements in a new home were and did her market research to provide multiple options in multiple neighborhoods.

She did not pressure us into spending more than we could afford, which is something that some of our friends had experienced with other agents in other markets.

I could go on and on speaking to Mary Jane's professionalism and negotiation skills. I would trust Mary Jane with my family and friends, and will use her as a realtor in the future.

You will not regret having Mary Jane guide you in your home selling or buying process.

It was 2003 when, after having moved from Austin to DC, I had difficulty selling by house in Austin. I was disappointed in my realtor and looked around for another. Mary Jane Moran came along and quickly solved my problem. When we moved back to Austin in 2005, Mary Jane helped us find a house very quickly, and with outstanding efficiency. We have kept in touch with May Jane ever since. This year we wanted to move closer to the children¹s school and Mary Jane helped us magnificently. She helped us find a property that we really liked and helped us show and sell the house that we had lived in since 2005. Her assistance and advice have been priceless.

I can’t say enough wonderful things about Mary Jane. She definitely went above and beyond on the sale of our home and the purchase of our new home. She was strategic and diplomatic every step of the way, and helped to keep things in perspective during some extremely stressful situations. We were lucky to have her in our corner and would recommend Mary Jane and Realty Austin to anyone we know looking to buy or sell a home.

It's been about 10 days since I moved into my new place — a swanky condo in a better location than I ever imagined I'd live in — and I still can't believe I'm a homeowner. And, if not for Mary Jane Moran, I wouldn't be!

Going into this experience, I had no idea what the home-buying process would be like, but Mary Jane gave me the help, the knowledge and the confidence I needed every step of the way. It was clear to me that she was the most experienced and knowledgable person involved in the entire process.

I've already recommended her to a couple of friends and will continue to do so. She's the best!

Mary Jane Moran rocks! She has helped me with two real estate purchases and I couldn't be more pleased. Plus she's really fun. Highly recommend!

Claire Saunders, Facebook Review

I can't really say enough about Mary Jane and her efforts on our behalf. She changed her schedule on numerous occasions to accommodate our visits to the city (we live outside of Texas). She immediately grasped our intentions, desired properties, location and features. She arranged a very effective "survey" of properties in the city that fit our criterion. She then helped narrowed the selection based upon our feedback.   Once we selected the property, she helped us through the contract process, the negotiation and amendment process, and the various details to prepare for closing. She helped us coordinate inspections and other necessary items. She was amazing. Extraordinarily professional, always discreet, and very perceptive.   She attended the closing to be certain everything went according to plan. She even went above and beyond on solving a difficult post-closing issue. She got the facts, made the calls, and effectively resolved a very difficult issue.   She continues to monitor some repairs the seller agreed to make, and continues to be helpful in coordinating our move and remodeling needs… All after the closing.   She is a professional, and she has become a friend.   I say this as someone that has purchased more than a few properties and has been a member of the real estate community for more than 40 years.   She is one of the best agents I have encountered. She's knowledgeable but still open minded, certain but still learning. Thank you, Mary Jane!

John Dwyer 

If anyone in the city of Austin is looking to sell or buy a home, I want you to look no further and give Mary Jane Moran a call. Mary Jane has made selling our home the most rewarding experience we could have ever asked for. She had our house sold in less than 24 hours and had three back-up offers all over asking price while we were on vacation. And, she never even put a sign in the front yard. Granted the market is hot in Austin, but the fact that she has an amazing pipeline of people looking and is a powerhouse negotiator with the experience to back it up, I guarantee that she will get you the best deal. James and I have a friend for life! Thank you MJ!

Travis O'neal

In this market, it's essential that you have an agent that is committed to speed. Good houses go so fast! Mary Jane helped us move quickly to get the house we wanted, but made sure we considered all the important questions one has to nail down. She was excellent at getting us through the negotiations and the closing – clearly, she's done this many times! She's a real pro.

Katherine Mclane

Having Mary Jane Moran as my realtor during this process made everything so much more manageable. She told me at one point "I don't work for them, I work for you! So tell me what you need and we will get it taken care of." And she did! I'm extremely pleased with my purchase and even more pleased with the professional relationship I have built with her. I will be returning to her for an real estate adventures I may take on in the future, and would without a doubt recommend her to anyone looking for an experienced realtor that knows how the game is played and knows how to win! This lady knows her stuff.

Max Hudson, Google Review

Our association with Mary Jane extended over a period of several months, in the listing of our home in Westlake and its eventual sale, locating a temporary rental, and more new home housing hunting trips than I could possibly count. The relationship was very professional and enhanced as we found out that we had mutually very close friends. I am sure at times the process was very trying and stressful for all of us as our needs and wishes for the "right" house were demanding. However, Mary Jane was very accommodating and did a very professional job in our dealings. Her experience in this process was very helpful as she guided us through several pitfalls that made the entire process less painful and very successful in the end result. As we ultimately found the right home that buying and closing process went very well as again she guided us through that stage, including providing an excellent individual contact to help us with the financing portion.

Overall the entire working relationship with Mary Jane was very positive and she is truly an asset to the company. I would not hesitate to strongly recommend her, and we will to anyone that we encounter that might need real estate services. Again our thanks and gratitude to her and Kristy Owen for all their help and support.

The Rossons

I really want to thank Mary Jane Moran with Realty Austin for doing such a great job helping me find a place to live in Austin. She immediately started working to find me some great listings before I arrived. I found a house that I loved in just a couple hours!! I won't hesitate to contact Mary Jane if I decide to move again. If you're looking for a home in Austin, I highly recommend Mary Jane and Realty Austin! They are the best!!

Steve Gallion

Mary Jane is amazing! She's a consummate professional! She really knows the business! The sale of my previous home and purchase of my new home experiences were my 11th and 12th transactions with her. She is supportive and knowledgeable about the market and always goes above and beyond my expectations. Her assistant, Kristy Owen, is super and always responds immediately to any of my concerns.

Robyn Green

Mary Jane Moran did an outstanding job selling my house. it was a unique property with acreage and a barn. From the beginning she worked to showcase my property as well as advised for a pre-inspection and appraisal. This made everything go more smoothly when we had a contract. Kristy was very helpful as well. Thanks for all your hard work. I would definitely recommend Mary Jane and Realty Austin.

Diane Barber, Facebook Review

My husband and I went to open houses in our desired neighborhoods as a bit of a hobby. We had to stop because we bought a house that Mary Jane had listed. We met her at the open house and did not think that home was within our reach. We contacted her when we found another property and she represented us well, though we were ultimately out-bid. We ended buying the home where we originally met her. She represented the seller and us and we all felt we were treated very fairly.  To this day all of us agree that Mary Jane is our realtor and friend. I recommend her without reservation.

Suzanne W., Yelp Review

Mary Jane is wonderful to work with. She listens and looks out for her clients' interests. She has a great work ethic and has a really helpful team. I'm out of state but bought a condo in Austin, and she really pulled through to make things happen while I was visiting. Highly recommended!

Jensen C., Yelp Review

It has been the most satisfying selling and subsequent rental effort working with Mary Jane and Kristi. She has been most patient with us through what has been a very trying situation on several occasions. She is very knowledgeable of the real estate buying and selling process with all the many twists and turns and has been so knowledgeable and informative as we worked through this process. I would highly recommend her to anyone wanting to buy or sell a property. We look forward to continuing to work with her and Kristi in pursuit of our next home which hopefully will occur shortly to "remove" us from this rental mode. Thanks for the opportunity to share this feedback about our professional working relationship with Mary Jane and from our prospective has become one of a friendship.

The Rossons

My husband and I are easily pleased to report that May Jane was a delight to work with during our search for an Austin area second residence.  Her knowledge of the city's assets and housing alternatives proved to be a valuable evaluation and decision making tool for newcomers from out of town. 

This is not to mention her energetic personality which made a potentially stressful venture an enjoyable experience.  I will recommend Mary Jane to our friends who may seek the Austin experience.

Mary Bess & Tom Johnson

Mary Jane was wonderful. Extremely professional and accommodating. She worked extremely hard to help us find and get into our new house. It was a challenging transaction and MJ was always responsive, kept us informed of what was going on, and went above and beyond to assist us even after the deal closed. This was after we had spent the prior 6 months with another realtor that did not have the same level of commitment and energy. You can tell that Mary Jane really cares about helping her clients..  I would be delighted to recommend her.

If we ever buy or sell again in the Austin area I would absolutely work with MJ.

Doug Sechrist

Mary Jane has been so great! She and her team are smart, honest, work hard and are just solid. Even after the closing on the condo, Mary Jane saw to it that the questionable details (we had a minor storage issue) were square. It's great to be able to rely on the person you're working with. Sometimes you take a leap of faith in these dealings, but she makes you feel secure through the process. She's very reachable, responsive, and you feel she's listening and is straight with you when you're working with her. Yes, I'm happy things went as smoothly as they did, and I know Mary Jane's energy and open communication had much to do with that.

Jenni Chang

Mary Jane assisted us with our relocation to the US while we were living in Mexico. There was no obstacle which she couldn't overcome and her service was first rate. When we visited the Austin area she showed us homes which were in keeping with our expressed needs and when we returned to Mexico she provided us with videos of homes which she thought might interest us. Despite this long distance relationship over a period of months, Mary Jane found the perfect house for us and we are now contented residents of Lakeway,TX.

Robert F., 2010

My wife and I recently moved to Austin from out of state and were referred to Mary Jane by an acquaintance. Working with Mary Jane was a great experience and I would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell a house in the Austin area. So now for the specifics.

During our first conversation, Mary Jane took the time to really understand what it was we were looking for both in our new home and in our new community. When it was all said and done, we ended up with something different, but more on that later.

Shortly after our conversation, Mary Jane sent me a number of MLS listings to review and discuss with her. In looking at them, I could tell that she had spent a good deal of time thinking about our needs and really tailoring the search to fit our criteria.

Mary Jane was able and willing to dedicate the time needed to help us find a house. In the very rare case that she was not available, she had her assistant available to show us properties.

Mary Jane is very knowledgeable about Austin. Over the course of our almost five month search we looked in Tarrytown, Central Austin, South Austin, Eanes, Northwest Hills, Circle-C and points farther southwest. She could provide us a depth of information about all of these areas - not just the housing that was available, but also information about commute times, schools, the "personality" of the areas, local resources and shopping, etc. All of this was very helpful for us as we had little familiarity with Austin.

Mary Jane was willing to do whatever she needed to help us find a house, whether it was contacting builders for information on upcoming inventory or arranging showings at FSBO properties.

She paid attention to our likes and dislikes throughout our searches and used that information to guide our search.

When it became clear that we were going to have a hard time finding what we wanted in our initial search area, she was able to think out of the box and help us identify other areas of town that would meet our needs. We ended up in a part of town that we would never have initially considered and after almost a month of living here we love it.

She was willing to offer her opinion, both personally and professionally (which I really appreciated), but never pushed.

Throughout it all she was cheerful, optimistic, professional, and a pleasure to work with.

We were so lucky to find Mary Jane, who worked her well-dressed pants off for us both when we were buying, and when we were selling. But what makes her so different is that she is able to represent everyone. Mary Jane has the rare qualification of being a mediator - acting on behalf of both buyer and seller. Thus, she knows how to read people, has an awesome marketing plan, and gets to know you and your neighborhood as if you were her only client and friend. You just have to meet her to believe one agent can be that talented.

Mary Jane sold my house last year, in the "bad economy." And, it wasn't even on the market! She had a buyer who liked the subdivision we lived in and she asked to show our home to give them an idea of some of the upgrades we did. The buyers loved our home and wanted to make an offer. Mary Jane asked if we would consider an offer and so, we did. She was an expert negotiator and we sold the home for what we needed to sell for, and the buyers love their new place! I still hear from them about how happy they are with their purchase. A great outcome for us all! I could recommend Mary Jane to anyone looking to purchase or sell a home in Austin.

Love, love, love Mary Jane. I've bought and sold a couple of houses with her, and she's top notch. Mary Jane helped me negotiate a creative deal on the last house that I bought, and helped me get the highest list and sales price on my previous house. We priced it aggressively high, and her marketing efforts got me a sale in 4 hours.

David and I met Mary Jane during an Open House on Threadgill Street. Lucky for us! We knew Mary Jane as the mother of our son’s classmate. Getting to know her as a realtor was a great experience. Mary Jane was a pleasure to work with and thanks to her expertise and good nature, we now own a lovely home in the Mueller neighborhood.

Dave and Anne Wermer, September 2011

She is a pleasure to work with, has a deep knowledge of the local market and has an unmatched degree of professionalism. Two years ago she sold my home in nine days in a difficult down market when nothing was moving . This year she facilitated a protracted 3 month close, resolving complex legal & title issues while in constant communication with all parties. She has a great way of keep¬ing everyone at ease while getting them to match her around- the- clock work ethic. Kristy and her other support staff at Moreland are equally efficient and always accessible. I would highly recom¬mend Mary Jane Moran and would use her services again repeatedly.

Mary Jane was awesome. From the immediate returned call from a “call for more info

sign until the sale. Even after closing she followed up with everything she said she would. She was fast, pro¬fessional, and always knowledgeable about what was happening. She always kept me calm and in the loop every step of the way.

Mary Jane, thanks again for all your help and patience in my homebuying process. It is easy to see why you are so well-liked and respected. You made purchasing a place fun, painless, and hopefully I also made a new friend. You are the best!

Steven Blewett

Mary Jane, thank you for helping us find a wonderful new home, and for saving us many thou¬sands of dollars in the process. We really appreciate your attentive listening, thoughtful guidance, responsiveness, follow through and attention to detail. Your knowledge of the greater Austin area was extremely helpful to us not only in the home search and buying process, but in the entire relocation process. We look forward to your continued friendship and the spirit of Austin you embody.

Mary Jane is simply the best from top to bottom! She has earned our friendship, trust, and business forever!

Mary Jane Moran is a consummate real estate professional whose patience and tenacity are a great virtue to her clients. On our latest sale, Mary Jane garnered a full price offer in four hours! She not only spent a year and a half helping us find the perfect house, but she also helped negotiate a good price in a very tight central Austin. Mary Jane makes buying and selling a house a breeze. After many wonderful experiences with her over the past five years, we are more than confident recommending her to anyone!

Amy Johnson Brotman

Thank you, Mary Jane! First, in 2003, she helped us sell our house when the market conditions were very difficult. Her persistence and hard work paid off, and were very much appreciated. Sec¬ond, she helped us find a house in 2005 that we really liked and helped us through every stage of the purchase process. Her help was particularly important as we were out of the state more of the time. For all of her help, we are very grateful. We have worked with many realtors and Mary Jane is the best!

Nicholas and Dana Chotiros

Mary Jane helped simplify the home buying process for my husband and I who were searching for our first home. Throughout the process she had the information and advice that we needed to make sound decisions.

Mary Jane is the consumate professional. Always well-versed in the intricate details of the current real estate market, I have watched Mary Jane layout presentations with passion, discretion, and necessary simplicity.

Along with my thoughts, The city of Austin thinks Mary Jane is wonderful as well: One of Austin Business Journal's "Top Producers of 2009", Austin's "Elite 25" member, and Top producer for Moreland properties for 3 years in a row.

When you are considering purchasing or selling Real Estate in Austin, make sure Mary Jane is at the top of your list of Realtors!
