What Our Clients Say
“As a realtor, Mary promises honesty and integrity and she delivers. During our several months' search for a new home, Mary advised us of potential problems such as cracked foundations and non-permitted room additions at some of the houses. We believe this advice saved us from unwanted expenses and red tape. With Mary’s friendly and patient guidance, my husband and I found a new home that we are very happy to own.”
“Mary represented my husband and me in purchasing a home in Borrego Springs. I had an excellent first impression – she quickly returned a call and e-mail and provided me floor plans on a property I was interested in. She also spent a few hours going through property information with me – all before I even committed to her representing me. I didn’t get the same first impression with another real estate agency in town. I’m sure glad we chose Mary. She exceeded my expectations in responsiveness/follow-through (often returning e-mails within minutes, no matter what time of day!) and organizational skills/helpfulness. She was very much on top of all the details in our transaction and advocated on our behalf the whole way. She’s very honest and extremely hard-working. Once we closed on the property she even helped us with finding some local resources and bringing in delivery for us. Thank you very much, Mary!”

“I could not have found a better real estate agent. I’ve been through multiple house closings and this is the first one that the agent anticipated everything I would ask or need before I had to ask.”
“Mary was wonderful in helping us purchase our condo. She made me feel at ease right away.
Mary was always reachable by phone or email with any questions or concerns. She went above and beyond.”

judy duncan Bought an attached home in Borrego Springs and sold a Townhouse homein Escondido, CA. She's the one you want on your home selling/buying team. She timed selling my home with the one I bought perfectly. I had loads of questions and she walked me through effortlessly.
gersonterry Bought a Single Family home in Borrego Springs, CA. Mary is an honest professional with a big heart. She does what she promises and gives rock solid advise. After helping me find a place to rent, the owner stopped paying the mortgage and Mary was very helpful in keeping me informed of the situation. The many months of uncertainty, bank notices on the door, and anxiety over whether we'd have to move was made easier by Mary's cheerful demeanor and willingness to answer questions and work with the owner to ultimately sell the house to me.
jmo46ore Sold a Single Family home in Borrego Springs, CA. Mary has been the property manager for my three bed room rental for several years. During this time she was prompt in addressing any maintenance issues as well as renter's concerns. Furthermore, she made sure that potential renters were fully vetted and that the rent was paid on time. Last year (2014) a family emergency prompted me to file for Chapter 13 bankruptcy and I could no longer keep my rental and had to place it in a short sale. Mary was the realtor who represented me . She immediately found a buyer but the short sale took an unbelievably long and difficult 8 months to complete. The mortgagee was extremely demanding and difficult to work with. However, Mary was very professional, knowledgeable and persistent. It is no exaggeration to say that this deal would not have gone through had it not been for Mary's perseveration. After the close of the deal, the new owner (who had been renting the house) was unable to come up with the 10 days of rent that was owed. Mary took it upon herself to pay this amount out of her own pocket. I consider Mary to be a very honest, ethical and professional person who will represent you to the best of her ability.
william hanks Bought a Single Family home in 2014 in Borrego Springs, CA. Our house hunting experience with Mary was excellent from the get go. We arrived at her office out of the blue and after asking a few questions she established what we wanted and in a matter of a few hours showed us a house that exceeded our wildest expectations. We made an offer as soon as we got loan pre-approval. Mary is very good at understanding her clients.<br/><br/>During the escrow process she anticipated snags and was able to advise us in advance on how to avoid problems. For example she told us what we needed to do about flood insurance before the mortgage people even figured out what was needed thus avoiding what could have held up loan approval. She really knows her business.<br/><br/>After we closed she also was exemplary in follow up. She was a great help with any settling in questions we had. She always had plenty of time for us even after the sale. She truly is a professional and we cannot say enough good words about her.
heidikatheleen Sold a Single Family home in Borrego Springs, CA. Mary Watkins accepted a very challenging real estate issue when my family approached her. We had been in a dispute regarding our home and the mortgage contract since 2005. At that time, the broker for the lender, Countrywide Home Loans, the seller of the home, King Flippy, LLC., and the realtor, Norma Saldana, colluded. Countrywide never corrected our loan documents or explained them to us. The realtor and the seller went AWOL. In 2007, Bank of America acquired our mortgage when Countrywide was decertified by the Federal Government and brought into court for multiple charges. Bank of America just perpetuated the fraud, and after receiving no assistance in correcting the loan documents or in renegotiating our loan, my family chose to go through the process of a short sale of our home. Mary Watkins agreed to pursue this case, and it was in less than a year she succeeded in finding a buyer and getting Bank of America to accept the short sale. My family and I are available for any references in regards to realtor Mary Watkins.

user600028 Bought a Townhouse home in Borrego Springs, CA. I have to say I have been buying Real Estate for many years and Mary Watkins stands out to be one of the most honest & caring Real Estate Professional's that I have encountered. She will go the extra mile for you and will actually put her clients first before herself! I would recommend Mary to any one of my family or friends in a heart beat. It's so refreshing to know that there are agents out there that are so caring and friendly and after the transaction is completed you have a new friend! Sincerely, Eileen Childress
user3199102 Bought a Single Family home in Borrego Springs, CA. Mary is excellent!! She is very a savvy negotiator, sharp business owner and highly knowledgeable/reputable. I do not think there is anyone in the Borrego Springs area which has a more comprehensive understanding of real estate and the excellent buying opportunities here. I highly recommend her and can only say that I am extremely happy with the home I purchased in 2010.
