Mary G Rustay was so helpful. She went through hoops trying to help me get into the duplex I wanted. Mary is so sweet and helpful. If I called her or text her, she responded immediately. She was so patient explaining everything to me. I could not ask for a nicer more efficient agent. I highly recommend her to anyone I know. Again I have not met anyone so helpful. I hope we remain staying in touch, she is like a friend.

I met Mary in 2011 while looking for rental property and have depended on her numerous times since. Mary is wonderful, dependable, hard-working, and has a beautiful smile and personality - I absolutely love working with her. And, by the way, she has always found the perfect renter for me within the week.

A great person , a very good Realtor, and a person who has integrity and the knowledge to put a contract together, follow the inspections closely and negotiate the compromises necessary to protect the buyer, but leave enough incentive to have the selleers close.

Mrs. Rustay was extremely professional and helpful. Even when I was ready to jump and buy she made sure I was doing the right thing and was protected from any potentially negative consequences. I have already recommnded her to friends looking to purchase a home.

I can only say how wonderful an experience Mary provided me, because of her experience, diligence, extra care, and professionalism. Three contracts before one followed through was frustrating, but Mary was steadfast in providing me with strategies for the success of a sale. Her five star ratings speak for themselves, and I would recommend her services to anyone and everyone. She's a kind person, which is not always easy to find, bu another factor in making my experience so favorable.

Mary has been incredibly helpful to us as first time homeowners (a working couple with two kids) who have never lived in the US before. She listened carefully to our interests and feedback, gave us great insights on the market and neigborhoods to cater to our family needs, and stood by us every single step of the way until we finally secured our new home. We are blessed that we had someone like her to make us feel welcome and at home in Houston! Thanks so much, Mary!

My home was an attractive structure in a still-evolving part of the Houston Heights. Mary made the former outclass the latter, braved record temperatures to have open houses and most importantly, used her instinct and judgment in guiding me to choose the right one of multiple offers. My home received 3 offers in the first month and sold for exactly the timing and pricing expectations we had placed upon its sale, thanks to her skilled and graceful negotiation and advice.

Mary Rustay was a pleasure to work with during my process of finding a home. I am not an easy person to please, but she understood what I was looking for and did everything she could to find properties of my liking. Mary is very knowledgable about Houston real estate and that was a tremendous help for me. She was very proactive in communicating everything I needed to know which resulted in a fast and smooth closing. I woould HIGHLY recommend Mary Rustay if you what quality of service.

Mary made selling my home while living in another city, and with a bad economy a much easier experience. She went above and beyond, helping out when I was unable to be in town. Thanks to Mary for selling my home so I afford all the new expenses in my life.

Mary was very helpful, passing us information at an early stage even before we arrived in Houston. She was assisted by Sally Luna for the actual house search weekend, and for the approach to the Landlord. I am very pleased with the results of my home search and with the support provided by Heritage. I would recommend her with no hesitation to any of my colleages relocating from outside the US.

Mary Rustay has many years of experience, and it shows. She is well informed on the available properties and went the extra mile to help us find just what we were looking for. Mary used her expertise to advise us on making an offer and stayed late until all the details were in place. Then, when we sold our property, Mary watched deadlines and kept us informed at all times on the status. Her friendly personality and professionalism make Mary a joy to work with.

Mary Rustay went above and beyond to help me accomplish the goal of purchasing this property. She accommodated my busy schedule, kept me informed daily by phone or email, met me at "off" hours and adjusted her schedule to help me. It was so obvious she has superior knowledge and ability to give 110% (or more) to do whatever is necessary to get the job done! I thoroughly enjoyed working with her and will work with no on else in the future. Kathie Rickman
