About Mary Pope-Handy and Team

About Us: Mary Pope-Handy, Realtor, and teamIt is very wise to be careful when hiring a Realtor to counsel, represent and guide you in buying or selling Silicon Valley real estate.  Most of my clients are highly sophisticated, and those who find me from one of my websites or blogs usually do a little reading up on me before ever contacting me. So to make that easier, I’ll provide here a mini-summary plus some pages where you can learn about me, how I work, my background, qualifications, testimonials etc.

The Quick Story on Mary

I’m a top producing Realtor, licensed & full time since 1993, working all over Santa Clara County (and occasionally in nearby counties), specializing in the “West Valley” communities of Los Gatos, Monte Sereno, Saratoga, Cambrian Park, Almaden Valley and Campbell.  I sell all types of residential real estate – everything from small condos to large estates.

Mary-Pope-Handy-named-top-12-women- RE-bloggers-2009I’m a real estate education junkie with a lot of designations. I’ve won a lot of awards for production as well as service.  I’m committed to being on top of the market, to doing a great job for my clients and to making them happy with my work on their behalf.  I’m a top blogger & nationally recognized for my blogs and websites. I occassionally teach or do public speaking on real estate related topics and have done so within various brokerages, at real estate board meetings and even at national conventions.

Relocation clients make up a significant portion of my business. These aren’t referrals from a relo company, but rather people who find me via my websites and blogs and hire me to assist them in moving to Silicon Valley.  I have great tools for working long distance with people, whether coming or going.  It is really enjoyable for me to help people coming in from other countries.  I lived abroad my junior year of college so am very empathetic!  (I lived in Florence, Italy.  I do speak some Italian and am almost conversant…)

I have Realtor friends all over the country, many of whom are also bloggers, and if you need a great Realtor anywhere in the US I can usually help you to locate one.

My office is in downtown Los Gatos and I live in the Belwood of Los Gatos neighbhorhood, which is on the border of San Jose’s districts of Almaden Valley and Cambrian Park.  Most of my work is centered in these three areas, but I focus on all of the “west valley” communities in Santa Clara County and do work all of Silicon Valley.

I’m married with two great kids (both in college now). In my free time I enjoy travelling, taking walks in our neighborhood, spending time with family & friends, reading, watching Law & Order, and collecting ghost stories.  I have a blog, just for fun on Haunted Real Estate.
