I have been a full time full service realtor and a strong listing agent in Santa Clara County for over 20 years. In addition to traditional home sales I have experience selling distressed property. My first experience with short sales occurred in the early 90’s. I have used that experience to successfully market and sell homes in today’s financial climate. I have worked with numerous loss mitigators and negotiators on my short sale listings and have successfully negotiated short sale approval on all of them. If you are looking to sell a traditional home with equity or a distressed property, I can help!
Professional Achievements and Goals
In 2008, I earned the California Association of Realtors Graduate, Realtor Institute, a nationally recognized GRI real estate designation. To earn the GRI designation, you must complete an intensive 14 course series of live lecture courses designed to improve marketing and negotiating skills, learn the latest in technology, provide an understanding of the new disclosures and legal aspects of real estate, and become familiar with the latest trends in financing; all designed to assist the graduate of this program to provide the best service to the consumer.
I continue to keep current on programs and courses designed to help me assist homeowners with Foreclosure Avoidance and Alternatives to Foreclosure for Short Sales. In 2011, I completed two certification courses for distressed property owners and was able to obtain the highly sought after CDPE Certification (Certified Distressed Property Foreclosure Avoidance for Short Sales) and HAFA Certification (Home Affordable Foreclosure Alternatives) for homeowners with Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac loans.
In addition, I have worked closely with employee relocation services since 1995. In 2010, I completed re-certification courses with Client Service ILM & Relocation through Intero Real Estate Services.

This letter shall serve as our testimony to Mary Squier’s exceptional service as our realtor. We started looking for rental property a few years ago. Mary showed us several houses. However, since the market was a little high at that time, we stopped looking. All that time Mary was patient and extremely helpful. We started looking again and found the house that would be perfect. Mary was there for us every step of the way. There was never a question that she couldn’t answer. We called her, e-mailed her and sent her several text messages. Mary was always quick to respond to any form of communication that best suited our current need. She is extremely thorough and her attention to detail is impressive. We truly appreciate everything that she’s done to help us achieve our dreams of buying rental property and attempting to secure our financial future. There’s no one on this earth we trust more to represent us, than Mary. The integrity she has shown is truly a trait to be admired. James and Laurie Ann
This is the third house I have bought and you would think that I am an old hand at it. However, I have come to realize that each new purchase is just like a first-time venture. I was still nervous about the huge investment. I still had the same doubts and hesitation and worry about all the overwhelming issues present when purchasing a home. I still had buyer’s remorse. With your terrific professionalism you calmed all of my fears and helped me in ways you do not even know. You are by far the best agent I have worked with. I am very, very appreciative of the gentle way you guided me through the process. Your top-notch professionalism showed in how you took care of even the smallest detail…you did not leave anything to chance. Many, many times you took care of things that were beyond my expectation. I was very grateful that when you did not know something, you said so and then proceeded to find out the answer as quickly as possible. I always felt I could trust you and that you had my best interest at heart. I am really quite lucky to have snagged on to you for the crazy ride we took. Thank you so much for everything. Mavis
We have purchased three homes with Mary leading the way. She was there for our first house in San Jose; she helped us find one in Gilroy and when we moved back to San Jose there Mary was again helping us with a home as well as selling all the old ones. We have always been pleased at the homes she shows us and she has all the paperwork ready with explanations and answers for all of our questions. We have referred Mary to many people with the knowledge that they won’t have any problems and that their home buying and selling will go smoothly. Mary is very efficient and helpful as well as being a professional with a great attitude and personality. We will always hire Mary if we Sell or Buy. What a jewel! Thanks for everything Mary, you are the greatest! Jim and Kathy
Mary helped us sell our house in the summer of 2010. Given the slow real estate market at the time, this could have been a daunting house to sell. However, due to Mary’s skills as a professional realtor, our house sold and escrow closed within three months of its listing. From our very first meeting with her through the last day of escrow, Mary maintained a professional manner. She kept in close contact with us and follow-up with other realtors who had shown our house to their clients. In addition, she kept us apprised of current comps, and gave us staging advice. At the time of our listing, we had not begun to look at new homes but had mentioned to Mary some of the key features that we were interested in. Mary actively stays in touch with current property on the market. When she found a home that she thought we would be interested in she brought it to our attention. It turned out that this house was exactly what we wanted, and we put a contingency offer on it which was accepted. As it turned out, the escrow of our old home and new home closed on the same day literally saving us thousands of dollars in moving, storage and rental costs. Mary’s diligence paid off for us and we would highly recommend her to anyone planning to sell or buy a house. Dale and Nikki
We recently purchased a home in the golf course community of Eagle Ridge in the town of Gilroy, Ca. During the process of purchasing our home, from the initial offer to the closing of escrow, Mary was the consummate professional. She communicated with us constantly about how the deal was progressing. She took the time to follow up and made sure we always had the correct copies of paperwork regarding our purchase. She had referrals for mortgage, inspections and insurance professionals. If we ever had any questions, Mary was always available to answer them. Thanks to Mary, the purchase of our home went very smoothly and was a pleasant experience. I would definitely recommend Mary Squier as a real estate agent. She was a pleasure to work with as well as being very knowledgeable and professional. If you or anyone you know is thinking of selling or purchasing a home, Mary Squier is the realtor for you. Craig and Mary Beth
It has been a pleasure working with you as our realtor. Since we started our search for a new home last April, you have been helpful to us in finding the right neighborhood and house for our needs. Your patience and diligence with the entire short sale process was extraordinary. Many of our discussions and negotiations needed to be done long distance. We appreciate your ability to use technology, such as cell phone videos and an electronic signature device to help us make decisions and make sure that all of the “t’s” were crossed and “i’s” dotted. Your efforts to make sure it all happened, including a last minute late afternoon 50 minute drive to make sure that my husband and I could meet with the notary before a deadline, is indicative of why you have been successful with these types of transactions. We would gladly recommend your services to anybody who is interested. Thank you for all of your help. Lucy and Jim
I am writing this letter in regards to my personal experience with Mary Squier. From the moment I signed on with Mary regarding the sale of my home, and the purchase of a new home, I encountered a very professional agent. Mary was more interested in my well being and comfort level than ‘making the sale’. The housing market is fragile and the economy is difficult but Mary understood the constant changes and was honest, but sensitive to my needs. Mary’s knowledge base has been most impressive and she never leaves questions unanswered. Mary has been instrumental in helping by asking questions that I’d forgotten to ask. She always made sure that I had a complete understanding of the situation before I made any decisions or signed any papers. Mary’s integrity is clearly visible, but don’t be fooled by her kind and gentle exterior. She can, and will be a champion when acting in the best interest of her clients. She does not quit until the objective has been met and is always available when needed. I have been most fortunate in my experience with Mary Squier and would highly recommend her services to anyone who is in need of an excellent real estate agent. Agnes Delvecchio
I’ve been meaning to write to you since you helped us buy our home in Eagle Ridge last year. I just want you to know what a good experience it was working with you. You sold our house in San Jose for a very good price, and helped us through the purchase of our Eagle Ridge home. You were very efficient about marketing our San Jose home. You provided us with useful survey of the market, took wonderful photos of our house, marketed it very efficiently. As a result of our new purchase, we needed to sell our home quickly, and that is exactly what you did. In regard to the purchase of the Eagle Ridge home, we couldn’t be happier. It was a difficult time to buy a home. I guess it was a seller’s market. However, you showed us a number of homes and negotiated the purchase of our home very effectively. Please feel free to use my name as a reference. Ken and Sylvia
Mary, I have to send you this note to say thank you for selling our home so quickly. You know that short sales can be emotional but you made it so easy. In addition, you were able to get the banks to work with us so quickly to close the sale. What a pleasant surprise. Please use us as a referral. Our best, Mary and Roland
