Mary Ann Zaruba - Testimonials

Tell Us Your Story

Mary Ann gave us her valuable advice on carpet and wall colors.

She also told us what we could do to make the house look more desirable to prospective buyers, such as updating wall switch plates. She provided an open house that helped sell the house in less than a week.

Mary Ann started her journey with us by helping us figure out what upgrades/improvements we needed to do to get the house ready for the next home buyer.

She helped us with the Coming Soon status and we sold the house before it ever hit the market! We were thrilled! Mary Ann and her excellent team have such a warm welcoming vibe and were very supportive up throughout. We were first time home sellers and are appreciative of the Mary Ann and her team! Thank you!

As first time home buyers AND expecting our first child, the whole home buying process seemed very overwhelming and almost not possible for us to accomplish.

Mary Ann made what could have been a terrible experience, a great one! She was extremely knowledgeable, knew all of the right people, and was very determined to find my husband and I, our first family home. Mary Ann is definitely someone you want to have in your corner.


We have bought and sold two houses now with Mary Ann.

She is honest, knowledgeable, friendly and gets the job done every time. She knows the Annapolis-Baltimore area thoroughly. She will fight for you if needed and let you know when it’s not worth it to fight anymore. On our last house, with her guidance, we sold it for 100k over what we bought it for 3 years ago. I would trust her again and again!

"Mary Ann was amazing to work with.

I have known Mary Ann for many years.

She knows the area, is a great negotiator, knows what needs to be done to get a house sold and is a pleasure to work with! Keep up the good work Mary Ann!


Mary Ann was absolutely amazing!

She was great to work with, instilled confidence from the start and laid out an entire plan that resulted in multiple offers on our house well above what we thought we could get for it, a flexible timeline so we could find a house, finding us a house in a super hot neighborhood where homes don’t even go on the market, and a SUPER smooth closing! Whenever anything did come up like picky buyers with inspection items, she was an amazing advocate and worked with us to get it all handled. She was also the only agent for the purchase (it was for sale by owner) so she basically worked those sellers through their process so that everything stayed on time. On top of all of this, she managed this amazing situation right before and then during the COVID-19 quarantine! She really cares about her clients and is amazingly nice, but she has the experience and confidence to know when to put her foot down with other realtors and their clients, she is a tough one! We couldn’t be more thankful to have Mary Ann as our realtor!

We had a GREAT experience with Mary Ann!

We found the perfect house after only a few weeks of looking thanks to her dedication and hard work. As first time home buyers, we had dozens of questions, which Mary Ann patiently answered. She took the time to discuss what we wanted in a house, and immediately notified us of any listings that came on the market. Mary Ann arrived to each showing prepared, and spent hours showing us houses, going over the pros and cons, and never pushed us to act until we were ready. She was honest with us about what to expect, and was always prepared with words of encouragement when we got overwhelmed. When we put in our offer, we felt that she had our best interest in mind and stood up for us when necessary, and during the inspection, she knew all of the right questions to ask. She was truly there for us every step of the way, putting our minds at ease, and ensuring that we found the home of our dreams! While the home buying process can be a stressful one, Mary Ann made sure that it went smoothly, and we couldn’t be happier! We will absolutely recommend Mary Ann to everyone we know!

Mary Ann made selling our home a breeze, even while we were out of state.

She took care of every detail for us. She is an amazing combination of professional, knowledgeable, and also so friendly and fun to be around! We are grateful to have found her and highly recommend!

Mary Ann was great.

We were fairly clueless about the area and what we wanted. She helped us pick out what options were right for us and made a lot of helpful suggestions. She knew a lot of information about the areas we were interested in - taxes, school info, prices, local traffic routes, even where to eat. When we picked our house, she was great in negotiations and got us a price we didn't expect AND was able to get us most of the alterations we wanted done before we moved in. In general, she was extremely patient and honest with us, and was also responsive to calls, texts, and emails. I would recommend her to anyone I knew who was in the market for a house.


Mary Ann helped my husband Brian and me find a home in Annapolis that has all the amenties we wanted, and her expertise helped us finalize a short sale with a minimum of stress.

I highly recommend her. Nancy Mahaney


Mary Ann was a blessing for me!

I was a first time home buyer and she was very patient with all my questions and replied to messages very very quickly. Even though I was purchasing a lower priced home, she treated me like I was spending millions! A few years later I had her help me sell the home and she had it listed and sold in no time at all. I even made money on the house in this economy! I will be using her again very shortly and cannot wait to have her help me find the next house!


Mary Ann helped us buy a beautiful house in Linthicum we never thought we would find.

With her knowledge of the area and other realtors she got us into the house the first day it was open and we put in an offer the next day at her prompting. This was after looking at multiple houses that weren’t right for us so we knew this one was right and have never regretted that decision. She also helped us sell our condo and was great at negotiation, knowing the process and doing all that needed to be done. She will definitely continue to be our realtor for any real estate transaction in the area.

My wife and I had her out for weeks until we found the perfect home. She always gave her opinion on the property we looked at. We have recommended to family and friends looking for a home.
