I have no doubt that I would recommend Mary and Heather to anyone seeking my advice on realtors in Marblehead. I was very impressed with the picture that they brought into being and the fact that we said the house over the asking price which in turn was 6.7% over the assessed value – all in 3 or 4 days on the market. I appreciated the constant contact throughout the relatively long and complicated process, making it very clear as to the details and specifics of my role and being receptive to all my questions.
Working with Heather to buy our home was an absolute pleasure! She was incredibly knowledgeable about the entire buying process, and as first time buyers, we were so lucky to have her. We never once felt pressured to make a decision, and always felt she had our best interest in mind. She was also extremely helpful at connecting us to other amazing people and companies along the way, mortgage brokers, movers, insurance, cleaners...just to name a few! We love our new home and are so grateful for all Heather did to help us! If we ever buy or sell in the future, Heather will be our first call!!

Mary and Heather are a wonderful team! Over the past 5 years, we have bought and sold with them. They are very knowledgeable about the local market, have a great network, and helped us understand and then find exactly what we wanted. They went out of their way to make both the buying and selling experience great.
This sale was my second successful transaction with Mary & Heather. Their no-nonsense, candid approach fosters a more seamless sales campaign. Once we reached a mutually-acceptable offer, the H&M team tenaciously handled all of the details to keep the process on track. It is a pleasure to work with such a high caliber of professionalism. Despite the constraints of the pandemic, Heather and Mary approached the marketing and sales process in a very disciplined and thoughtful manner. They kept me well-informed of market trends and transactions so that we could adjust our strategy as traffic and buyer interest strengthened. Their network of providers (stagers, photographers, tradesmen, moving companies) provided me with the right resources to ready my home for sale. It was a partnership throughout the entire process.
We have had the privilege of working with Mary Stewart since 1981. She has represented us with both buying and selling five of our homes. Mary is knowledgeable, competent and above all, trustworthy. Mary has the uncanny ability to judge the existing market conditions and has managed to maximize the sale prices of our homes. Lastly, we feel strongly that Mary is the most ethical broker that we have dealt with over the years in both our personal and professional life. We are pleased to recommend Mary to anyone who is selling or buying their home.

I really appreciate the effort of Kristen King and Heather Kaznoski. Although they were not my brokers, they were very professional, knowledgeable and very diligent. They provided resources to assist with my preparation of an offer and prior to closing. I would definitely work with both of them again.
Mary and Heather were wonderful to work with, kept everything running smoothly, and helped keep me sane and on track. They were always informative, let us know how showings and open houses went, and communicated often via phone, text and email. They are professional, have a great knowledge of the real estate market and an affinity for Marblehead. They are also kind, caring, personable, and make a great team. We are very grateful for the role they played in selling our home – thank you!

Very knowledgeable and professional, excellent agent. Mary handled all aspects of our house sales as we have moved to Fl.

We have worked exclusively with Mary and Heather since we bought our first one-bedroom condo in Marblehead in 2004. At that stage we were living more or less full time in London and were just visiting Marblehead for a week. We visited three condominiums with Mary and found very quickly assessed our priorities and preferences. We did the paperwork to make an offer the following day and by the end of the week we were informed that we have the property, even though we did not make the highest offer. To this day, we are not sure how they made it happen! They were completely unfazed by working remotely with us and, while we closed in December, managed to keep the tenant in place until we were ready to move in the following Spring. Mary and Heather have always worked hard to understand our specific and fairly eclectic taste, and what we wanted on terms of our next move. We would not have our current property if they had not called the moment it came on the market, and we were able to put in a winning offer just two days later. Our ten-year relationship with Mary and Heather is based on integrity and complete trust. They invest a lot of time getting to know their clients as individuals, understanding their specific property foibles and delivering results. We would have no hesitation in recommending them for any kind of real estate transaction.

Mary & Heather are truly experts, considerate, sensitive and they work extremely hard. They are one of a kind. Thank you. My husband and I are very grateful. They are beyond excellent.”
Mary and Heather are an experienced mother-daughter team affiliated with Coldwell Banker. They listed and sold our home in Marblehead with skill, knowledge of the market, and utmost calm and support. They have lived in town most of their lives and know how to get things done. We became friendly with both of these outstanding realtors and would recommend them to others for sale, purchase or rental.

"Mary Stewart and Heather Kaznoski are the only brokers my husband and I will use in Marblehead. They have represented us on both the buy and sale side. They are extremely professional in their approach to the RE transaction, yet extremely kind and thoughtful even under pressure when resolving unforeseen issues"
- Paul & Melinda
Whether buying or selling the Mary & Heather combo is a winning scenario. They'll navigate you through the process with skillful experience. My wife and I would default to Mary & Heather in the future with confidence.

Mary and Heather were the absolute best to work with! We were first time home buyers and they were very patient with us every step of the way. We started our home search process many months before we even put an offer on a house and the read and responded to every one of our emails. When it was time to finally make an offer on a house, they were so organized and turned everything around quickly. Due to an already planned trip we had to be out of town and we knew we were in good hands to finish the process with Heather and Mary. Thanks to technology we were able to finalize all our paperwork and made our short close date. We highly recommend Heather and Mary for all your home buying and selling needs!
- Robert and Caroline
Mary and Heather provided outstanding service, which helped us find a house well suited to our needs, because they listened. Their patience and helpfulness did not end on the close date. We reached back to them for their detailed local knowledge, which helped us secure expert and well-respected workmen to do minor repairs and provide solid advice for future projects. We would definitely recommend them to anyone.

My wife and I absolutely loved working with Mary Stewart and Heather S Kaznoski. They were recommended through family and from the moment we contacted them they guided us through the process of purchasing a home in Marblehead. We were both first time home buyers, so they understood those challenges and were amazing at answering any questions we had during the process. Mary and Heather know everything about this area and talked us through the benefits of living in one part of town over the other. They never pushed us in one direction, but we could tell they knew exactly what we were looking for. When it came to negotiating our price they got us to a place we felt very comfortable with, and there was never a feeling of tension with the buyers. They handled the stress of it more than we did! Which was amazing since we were dealing with moving up from NYC and starting a new life / job. I would STRONGLY recommend working with them and I already have to multiple new families to the area!
- Scott & Ashley
We had a wonderful experience with Heather as our realtor in Salem. Heather was extremely responsive throughout and was excellent at guiding us through the process. She understood our needs and gave us balanced advice on the areas we were less knowledgeable in, notably the pros and cons of the different Salem neighborhoods. She was detail-oriented and timely, and we felt very confident with Heather as our advocate throughout the offer, inspection, P&S and closing stages. She was also excellent at maintaining positive communication with the Seller team. As first-time home buyers we could not have had a better experience and would highly recommend Heather and Mary.
- Kevin Coughlin & Hanna
Mary & Heather were very helpful to myself and my siblings when selling my mother’s home. Not knowing the first thing about selling a home, Mary & Heather were very knowledgeable as to the value of homes in the neighborhood, as well as pricing the home and when to list it. They were available to us whenever we needed them and were at all of the inspections to oversee every detail. When we ran into a problem in the home, they knew exactly who to talk to, to get things taken care of for both seller and buyer. They truly care about their clients and we can’t say enough about how comfortable we felt working with them!
- Laurence & Elizabeth
Mary and Heather are professional, pleasant to work with, and possess a keen understanding of the home buying and selling process. From our initial meeting through the closing, Mary and Heather were with us every step of the way. They are honest and straightforward, and at the same time, understanding and considerate of their clients’ needs. With over 50 years of combined experience, they know the Marblehead real estate market like few others. Our attorney commented that our closing was one of the most pleasant he had attended in years, due to Mary and Heather’s organization, attention to detail, and overall ease to work with. If you are looking to buy or sell a home on the North Shore, we would recommend Mary and Heather without hesitation!
- Maria and Myles
Mary and Heather are very knowledgeable about the town of Marblehead. That's exactly what we wanted when we sold our beautiful one-of-a-kind home there. Marblehead is a truly unique seaside town with wonderful neighborhoods. Mary and Heather are experts on Marblehead, its real estate market, and the various neighborhoods. This is exactly what we wanted when selling our home.
- Joseph and Joan
We used Heather and Mary to see our first house then buy our current house. The market was really tough, but they did a great job showing us appropriate houses, and knowing quickly when new houses came on the market. The house they found us is perfect. They knew the process so well; the transaction went very smoothly. I would highly recommend them. They are a great team.
