What would you tell your friends, family, neighbours, co-workers when recommending my real estate services?
I'd love to hear from you!
Hello Mary Lou, I would just like to thank you very much for your evaluation, communication and guidance on our recent sale on our rental property. It was dicey for us as the market had not changed much in value since the purchase. You were accurate and clear on what renovations not to do in order to avoid losing money. You priced the property properly as to get a fair price but very quickly and it was sold on the first day of showings! Your guidance was instrumental on when to stand firm and when to negotiate. As always, it was a pleasure having you sell our home!
In late 2018 I was offered a position in Dartmouth. At the time we were alternating between Ontario in the summer and Florida on a boat in the winter. After much discussion my wife and I decided that this would be a fantastic opportunity, and that a condominium would best suit our needs. However, we were living in Florida at that time and we felt this whole process was going be very complicated. We contacted a friend, who contacted a friend, who recommended Mary-Lou, and from the outset we couldn’t have been in better hands. She was professional, courteous and very accommodating. We were provided a link to our own page where she placed potential condos that fit our criteria, was available when we called or got back to us very quickly. We selected a condo and she walked us through via Facebook messenger, showing the condo, building and storage area all the while making valuable comments and suggestions. We decided to purchase the unit, however the agreement was dependent on closing in three weeks and through the Christmas season. Mary-Lou coordinated the offers and counter offers which were all done through electronic signing, the legal documents completed via e-mail and the closing inspection. The entire sale went off without a hitch in an extremely short time frame. I cannot say enough great things about our experience with Mary-Lou. We were absolutely over joyed with the results; the condo was more than we had expected. What a great feeling moving to a new province knowing that you have a place to call home in such a wonderfully welcoming community!! Thank you so much Mary-Lou.

Where do we begin? From the moment we met Mary Lou, we knew we had an incredible professional caring realtor. Who always always put our needs and concerns ahead of just selling a house. We have gained a dear friend thru this process who explained every step and process always staying ahead of us guiding us. When we need a helping hand she stepped up big time. No only sold our home but found us a temporary home while we waited to move into our new home under renovations. With a flick of her magic selling Wand she made it happen. I have so much confidence and respect for this lady. When I say she stepped up it would take weeks to explain fully the depth she went to for us. Truly went above and beyond. She put us in good hands with Roger Wheeler Premiere Mortgages and made the Impossible Possible. We without a doubt would highly recommend Mary Lou Tallon to sell or buy or stage your home. She knows I can talk and talk endlessly and would and has sat through some very trying times with us. Through it all , she worked out all our issues and concerns so calmly and so eloquently when conversing on our behalf. She is one of the most reliable , honest and beautiful soul we know. If you get the chance or choice to work with any realtor do not hesitate to choose the right one .... we did !! Mary Lou Tallon Keepin It Real

I think Mary-Lou did an excellent job of selling our rental property. She was up against a great deal of resistance from the renter who threatened to not vacate. Mary-Lou was able to maintain a good dialogue with the tenant and the sale went through without issue. I think she went above and beyond to ensure this sale was concluded without issue. I highly recommend her. Regards. Dennis Ryan
Not quite settled in yet, but all going well! The experience I had was great, making sure there was no hiccups and somewhat stress free( nothing on her end causing stress). Was available at any point, made appts to work around my schedule making things easier! Over all great and would recommend over and over!
Mary-Lou's personal and professional real estate services are top notch. With her knowledge in real estate she was able to answer all our questions, and respond to our concerns. Further she made time to allow us to vent and made suggestions to facilitate the sale of our home and in the purchase of a new home. Can't thank you enough Mary-Lou!! I would strongly recommend using Mary-Lou as your agent if you wish to have excellent personal and professional services.
I was very satisfied with Mary-Lou as my agent. She showed me many properties until I found one that suited me and was helpful every step of the buying process. Highly recommended!
"Excellent, friendly and knowledgeable service. Will recommend Mary-Lou to anyone looking in the HRM"

Hi Mary Lou!
I’m writing to thank you so much for, first of all, negotiating an accepted offer on our house after only ONE DAY on the market! And thanks for your patience with us. Although it took us a full year from the first time you came into our home with a very comprehensive market evaluation (as well as several visits on your own time to help “stage” our house) you didn’t complain or give up on us. You patiently waited for us to be ready, then you immediately jumped into action!!! Thanks, also, for recommending a great lawyer, and all your hard work following up on everything from the inspection details, to helping organize negotiations between the buyers and us with regard to items we wanted to leave/sell to the purchasers. Oh, and for being our personal delivery person when I forgot to cancel a shipment to our previous residence. You went above and beyond from beginning to end, and I will confidently recommend you to anyone I know who is buying or selling a house. You’re the best!!!!

Mary-Lou, we would like to take this opportunity to thank you for selling our house in less than two weeks. You are a professional and hard-working real estate agent who provided us with expert guidance and outstanding service. It was a pleasure to work with you; you made selling our home an easy process.

Thanks so much MaryLou for helping us sell our old home and buy our new home. We really couldn’t have asked for a more professional real estate agent. You were always so quick to get back to us with any questions we had throughout the process. It was a pleasure to work with you and we will be sure to recommend you to family and friends needing an awesome agent who always goes above and beyond for her clients!

We have been fortunate to have recently enjoyed two successful real estate transactions with Mary-Lou Tallon as our Realtor. Although both our homes were "non-typical", requiring specialised marketing and complex negotiating, she guided us through the process skillfully and kept us informed every step of the way. Mary-Lou is very generous with her time and makes herself available to her clients at all times so that we always felt supported and understood. She listens very carefully and explains things very clearly. Even when things don't run as smoothly and quickly as one might hope, she maintains a positive outlook and a sense of humour. She works tirelessly and enthusiastically to produce results and to provide a positive experience for her clients.
We certainly intend to list our current home with Mary-Lou in a few years time when we are ready to sell and we continue to recommend her wholeheartedly to our friends and family members.

Hello Mary Lou, I just want to say a big THANK YOU for the EXCEPTIONAL, service you provided for Carl and myself as your clients. We were extremely happy with the way you thoroughly explained the procedure to us, your very thorough real estate appraisal , and you walking us through each step along the way. We had very little experience in real estate and we very HEAVILY depended on you to guide us , and I might add we could not have asked for any better . Not only in helping us sell our former home but also in purchasing our new home. Mary Lou, you went above and far beyond what was expected. We could not have done this without you. Your professionalism is outstanding. We have gone on to recommend you to everyone we hear who are thinking of selling their homes because we think you are the BEST!!! We will continue to recommend you not only to family and friends , but, anyone . We MOST CERTAINLY will come to you if and when we ever decide to sell or buy again. You just made everything so much easier . Day or night you were available to us , weekdays, weekends . It didn’t matter to you. THANK YOU again Mary Lou, you are one of the nicest , friendliest and courteous people I know. Please don’t ever change. We Love You as you are.!! Enjoy your day.
All the best,
Carl and Joyce Knox.
Thank you for making this experience bearable, and going far above & beyond. We are both so grateful to have bumped into you at the start of the hunt & to have you stick with us till the bitter end. See you years down the road when we sell.
