"Mary Alice is by far one of the most accommodating and professional real estate agent I have ever had the pleasure of working with. During my time on Long Island I was only in the position to rent property. Mary Alice not only personally drove and showed me all the available properties, but, she also took the time to research the home itself and made sure that it would be a healthy and safe environment for my dog and I to reside in. I rented three different properties during my seven year span of living on Long Island and I could not have had a better person to help me through that very stressful process. She answers her phone and emails timely and never makes you feel like you are bothering her. She truly cares."
