VIA Group Realtors Reviews

Read what others have to say about their experiences working with VIA Group Realtors to buy or sell their home in Des Moines Area. Did you have a great experience working with VIA Group Realtors? We want to hear about it!

My wife has known Mary since grade school. Our home search had been ongoing for about a year, and when we started the process she was with another broker, but she switched to Via shortly before we wrote the contract. There was absolutely no question that she would remain our agent. Mary worked both sides of this transaction. We would not have been comfortable with this arrangement with any other agent. Buyer (my wife), Mary and the seller have all known each other since childhood. Mary once commented that she was dealing with the most understanding and ethical clients possible, which was kind of her, but true, which made the whole process not only possible, but easy. She was able to manage her fiduciary obligations with great skill to the mutual benefit of ALL parties. :-) You should also be aware, that most of this process was conducted at arms length as we were living 1,000 miles away in Austin, TX. at the time. This alone could have been an issue, but was seamless. Her dedication, knowledge, professionalism, (and fun), are truly admirable, and we absolutely recommend her services without hesitation.

Mary was an invaluable resource throughout the home buying process, very communicative and always willing to answer any questions I had. Mary always contacted me when she had important information to share during the purchasing process and she always gave me plenty of time to make any critical decisions. Mary is very personable and was very easy to work with overall. I don't think I could have found a better realtor to help me with buying my first home!

Mary was wonderful; she handled every detail with ease and an incredibly professional manner. This is the second time that we have worked with her, and would not hesitate to work with her again!

Mary was amazing from beginning to end. When she found the house I bought she made sure to protect my best interest. There was a collased sewer line she insured i wasn't on the hook for the cost. Thankfully she hired a really great inspector who discovered this really expensive problem. In the final analysis pay for the inspection and pay the extra for the inspection of the sewer line as the cost of $150 extra vs $8000 is well worth the investment. Mary will fight for her client and go above and beyond expectations.

Mary was knowledgeable and efficient. She scheduled an Open House, the sign went in the yard, and in less than a week I had a sales contract. She communicated promptly, and was thorough. It Closed on time, and there were no surprises. I would confidently recommend her to family and friends.

- Debbie M

Mary was very enjoyable to work with and was always responsive with answering questions or getting us into showings. It was our first time purchasing a home and she made us feel confident that in each step by taking the time to explain it all. Once we found our home she was great at handling all aspects of helping us get to the closing date. I will always recommend her to anyone I know in the area!

- Callie S

Mary is top notch and would recommend her to anyone! She has a wonderful personality and her attention to detail cannot be matched. She is the reason our buying process was so smooth!

Mary Christopher made selling our house a much quicker process than we had anticipated. Our house had a swimming pool which makes it a challenge in the selling market. But we had multiple showings in a day and had a SOLD sign up within 5 weeks. Mary came in originally and gave us ideas on what we needed to do to make it show ready and would call and give us the feed back from the showing agents to help us continue to improve it for the current market. She also provided a photographer to come and do professional images and night photos of the house for the listing on line. Mary was easy to reach when needed either by phone, text or email she is always quick to respond to any questions or concerns. Her honesty of what she felt of offers was assuring that she was looking out for our best interest as a seller. We will be recommending Mary Christopher to our friends with future listings. You won't be disappointed choosing her as your listing agent.

Mary is nothing short of wonderful. I am a first time home buyer and had literally no idea how any of the process worked. Mary was excellent explaining how things worked and making sure I knew what to expect and what steps I needed to take. She was very knowledgeable and shared some very useful ideas and things I wouldn't have known. We also had a non-conventional loan that posed some minor setbacks with sellers. But Mary was right there with us the whole time, showing us compassion and skill we could rely on during this most important purchase.

Mary Christopher is a very friendly, professional realtor. She was always easy to reach and kept me informed of concerns in a timely manner. She listened to my concerns and eased them by offering solutions. Mary was very helpful in readying the house for showing, including using excellent photography for Zillow. She also connected me with an electrician and handymen when some last minute things had to be fixed to meet the inspection guidelines. All paperwork and contracts were done easily, mostly online, despite the restrictions in place due to the covid virus. I felt that she understood my needs and we worked together as a good team. I would recommend Mary Christopher to sell a house as she cared for the sale as if it were her own house being sold.

Mary assisted us with buying our current house in a for sale by owner situation. Although her commission was lower than normal, she was wonderful. So when the time came to sell this house there was no one we wanted to work with other than Mary. Mary arranged for a video tour of the house. In this COVID - 19 time, I think the video tour was critical. We received two offers over asking price in the first week. After working with Mary to buy our current house we wanted to use her to list and sell our old house. We knew she was leaving to go on vacation, so we waited to list our house for sale until she returned. Mary was simply wonderful to work with.

As a first time homebuyer and moving into a community I did not know, Mary Christopher went above and beyond to answer my questions, find the perfect home and make me feel comfortable with the home buying process. She is knowledgeable in the Real Estate business and I would always turn to her when I didn't know something. She was also timely on getting back to me and responding even when it was after business hours. I would highly recommend Mary to any of my friends/relatives.
