"Great experience, she told us the house would not be on the market long and we received an offer on day 3. Had great communication throughout the whole process."

Josh Wagoner –Aug. 4, 2018

"Mary was the BEST! She responded to all our questions quickly and kindly. She went over the top to help us get everything in order...from Minnesota. She was a real blessing in a process that could have been extremely stressful!"

Stacey Ray –May. 15, 2018

"We were extremely pleased with the whole process of buying our new house. Mary Layton was friendly, helpful, and went above and beyond in helping get the house we wanted. We are moving from out of state, and Mary did everything possible to make this transition and purchase smooth and enjoyable. I will highly recommend Milestone and specifically Mary to anyone who might be looking to purchase a new home. Thank you for all you did to make this a great experience, and to help us get exactly what we wanted."

Rex Ray –Apr. 15, 2018

"We made this purchase and built the house living two states away. Mary made the process as good as one could expect. She worked with us and our schedules when we needed to return to Kentucky to finalize the agreement and the closing. All during the time the house was being built she sent pictures from the breaking of ground into completion prior to the closing. She arranged for the pre-drywall inspection to be done remotely via a tablet (worked as good as being there). Had two issues that needed resolution post-closing. We had to return home to Virginia and Mary went to the house while things were being resolved to be sure the house and contents were as we left them. She sent pictures of the problem resolution in progress and informed us the adjustments post completion were up to her standards. When we returned to Kentucky for the holidays, we found everything was done up to our expectations. Mary went the extra mile to make sure we comfortable from beginning to the end. She is truly a buyer’s agent. By the way, this is the 13th house that we bought over the years, and I can say one of the smoothest of all."

"More than satisfied is putting it mildly. It sold faster than I imagined. Mary went above and beyond her job to get it sold. She held my hand all the way. Fairly stress-free because of Mary. I originally thought I could sell my house "by owner". I now know I could never have done it successfully. I believe I got the best price I could have gotten. I could not have done the improvements,, upgrades,, staying,, showing,, advertising,, negotiating,, etc. without Mary Layton's knowledge,, expertise and help. She provided all the above in every phase of the sale. Thanks ever so much,, Mary Layton and Milestone Realty!"
