Testimonials from Buyers and Sellers


After witnessing the exceptional service Mary provided in helping us buy our first two homes and sell our first, we didn't hesitate to contact her team to help us buy our third. To say Mary goes above and beyond is an understatement to the focus and commitment she dedicates to each client. Mary's years of experience are invaluable to those buying or selling. She has in-depth knowledge and incredible negotiating skills. Mary has always made us feel as though we are her only client. Simply put: Anyone who doesn't first contact Mary to buy or sell, is missing out.
~ Crystal Nieder, Client




Thank you for all the good references that helped us along during the entire process - from legal advice to local contractors. It would have been three times as difficult for us, as out of state landlords, to sell that property without your guidance - which was always considerate & never heavy handed.
~ Mohammad Abbas Virji, Multi-Family Investment Property Seller




When I first started assisting clients with distressed properties - I turned to Mary for her expertise with difficult situations. As a successful auctioneer as well as a distressed property expert (CDPE) Mary has a unique real estate perspective and was extremely helpful in guiding me to the best solution for my clients. Mary has very straightforward & confident approach and LOTS of valuable experience which she has been happy to share with her Leading Edge colleagues. I know that she has frequently pulled "rabbits out of a hat" over the past few years and I am happy to give a very positive recommendation!

We met Del at an open house and, after having a not so great experience with another realtor, easily gravitated toward working with him exclusively - with no regrets! He was incredibly professional, responsive and helpful in our search- which was pretty scattered. When we decided to look in towns that were outside of the area he typically works in, he educated himself in every way possible to be able to continue to be a great resource for us. Would highly recommend Del to anyone in search for a home.
~ James and Jillian Keczkemethy, Client




If hard work, dedication, experience and just plain "smarts" appeal to you, Mary Scimemi is your choice. A problem-solver, not a problem-maker. Mary's can-do attitude and great business sense help her to get the job done and done extremely well. We could use a hundred Mary's, but there's only one! June 16, 2010
~ Eileen Hamblin, Broker/Owner, Leading Edge Real Estate (colleague)




I worked with Mary as both a buyers and seller's agent over the last few months. On the buying side, Mary worked with us to understand what we were looking for and keep us honest on whether a property was really right for us. She has a nuanced way of coaching us in the right direction and is an expert on the market/market value. We looked at several places and found the perfect place which we're very happy in. On the sales side, Mary helped me get my property in the best shape to be sold for max value by making sensible investments, telling me where I should invest and where it wasn't worth it. The property sold quickly in a short amount of time (in Dec--probably the worst month of the year) and I'm very happy with the offer I got. I would recommend Mary without hesitation to anyone looking to buy or sell a home.

"Del made selling our house in Melrose incredibly easy and I highly recommend him. He gave straightforward advice about what to fix up prior to selling, in checklist form. He provided very well-researched advice on asking price. He made sure that the house was staged impeccably. The house sold for well over asking price, in the dead of winter. Prior to closing, he offered to help with things like smoke detectors that were well beyond the call of realtor duty. Del even delivered a very heavy package to our new house that had been accidentally sent to the old one, weeks after closing. You could not ask for a more knowledgable or helpful realtor."
~Angela Vitulli

~ Mike Martiniello, Client




Mary made the process of purchasing my first home extremely easy. She was able to find me exactly what I was looking for and within my budget. Her knowledge or the processes and comps truly shined.
~ Aaron Crear, Client




Del is an amazing realtor; I can't say enough good things about him. He is kind, honest, generous with his time, trustworthy and became a friend through this process. He is so dedicated to his clients and doing the right thing. There were so many ups and downs throughout my search and Del was incredibly patient. He knew exactly when to step in and guide and when to step back and listen. He went above and beyond in every single thing he did, all with a smile on his face. This process would not have gone smoothly had it not been for his diligence, relationships and commitment to his customer. I feel so grateful to have worked with him and would recommend him in a heartbeat.
~ Heather Schill, Client




I used Mary to buy my first home (talk about stressful) and she was supporting through the entire process. I am using her again for selling and purchasing my next home.
~ Kim Millien, Client

I've had the pleasure of working with Mary for over three years now. Everytime I've referred her to clients, or sought out her counsel, she has been the consummate professional. She's always efficient, highly competent and successfully gets the job done. I consider her a great resource and am grateful to have access to her vast knowledge.

Mary is one of the most caring professionals I have ever had the pleasure to work with. When she first came to work at the same office as I did I realized right away that she had what it takes to get the job done. Being honest, diligent and hard working are just a few of the compliments I would give her. You're in the best of hands when working with Mary.
~ Dina Castiglia, Realtor, Leading Edge Real Estate (colleague)




Mary is one of the hardest working people I know. She has a passion and dedication for her business that is unparalleled. Her commitment to perform each piece of the process with integrity has made her the only Realtor I would use or recommend to anyone in the market.

Simply put, Mary gets the job done - and the entire experience is exactly what anybody looking to purchase or sell a home should want. There is no one else I would go to for any of my real estate needs. Bravo!
