Recent Client Testimonials

“Mara is an extremely knowledgeable, professional, responsive, and patient realtor.  She helped us sell our home three years ago and recently helped us purchase our new home.  After having gone through a short sale, my husband and I were hesitant to purchase again.  Mara answered all of our questions and helped us feel confident in our purchase.  She treated us with respect and was there every step of the way.  She takes the worry out of home buying and helps you enjoy the experience rather than stressing out.  I highly recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell a home!”

I have worked with Mara for the past 11 months. First, with the location and purchase of my brother’s condo in the Mesa area. He is a disabled veteran, and his circumstance was quite unique. Mara helped him and me to understand all the possibilities and choices of buying a first home. She lead us through the process very professionally and was always available to answer any questions we had. Then May of this year, my husband and I decided to sell our home and buy another one in the Chandler area. She sold our home in 28 days!! She is a very hard worker and is always prompt with all the paperwork and deadlines. She knows the Real Estate market and is excited to be working with people who are usually emotionally invested in their homes. I would not hesitate to recommend Mara Benson to sell your home. I will be calling on her the next time we decide to sell.

We absolutely love our home. Thanks so much for making our home buying process so painless. You’re awesome, and if we look to buy again in the future you’ll definitely be getting a call from us.     -Jake Hyland



To whom it may concern;

This is letter is to inform all of the fantastic job that Mara Benson did for my wife and I in locating the perfect home in Gold Canyon.

We called Mara about a property that she had listed but found it not to be the right fit for our needs. Mara immediately gathered a list of properties that conformed to our wants and due to the short timeline we gave her she managed to not only find us the right property, she led us to a lending institution who quickly pre approved us then she helped negotiate a favorable purchase price, got us some furniture included and got the deal closed in 30 days. What makes this even more remarkable is that she did all this while traveling back and forth to another state, tending to her dying father. Mara Benson is a hero in our book and a person that every realtor should study and pattern themselves after. I believe that everyone should have a doctor, a lawyer and a realtor that they can fully trust. I’m proud to say,” Mara Benson is our realtor”.

Sincerely, Michael D. McComas

I am a partner of Lakritz & Lloyd Wealth Management here in Mesa Az. Moving an office and home from Tampa Florida brought me to Mara Benson. We were not only able to work with her on my home ,we also had her help her re-locate my daughter.

Mara is professional, tenacious and a wonderful asset in the real estate industry.

 To Whom It May Concern:

As a fellow Real Estate professional and Realtor, I have observed firsthand Mara’s passion for helping clients and other practitioners, unselfishly.  We currently serve together on the Southeast Valley Regional Association of Realtors Board of Directors, and we recently worked side by side as delegates to the Arizona Association of Realtors Spring Convention where a number of statewide issues were addressed and the leadership of the organization was selected.

I also take note of her community involvement, as she gives tirelessly of her time in organizing and leading groups of citizens to address issues of importance.  She has held critical leadership positions in political and public process forums in the East Valley.

Very truly yours,

  To Whom It May Concern:

It is my sincere pleasure to write this letter of recommendation on behalf of Mara Benson.

I have known Mara for the past 6 years both personally and professionally as my realtor. She represented my husband and I in the sale and purchase of our home a few years ago. This was no easy task, as we had to jump through many loopholes to short sell our first home and qualify for the new home. Mara assisted in every aspect of the deal from start to finish ensuring no mistakes were made.

Mara has a passion and zest for life that is infectious. She is a huge supporter of her community. I have seen her give financially, as well as of her time. She is constantly networking, trying to meet new clients, friends and women to share her business with. She has invited me to numerous networking events so that I can increase my own business.

Mara’s personality and character speak volumes- she is interactive, upbeat, challenging when needed and an all around great role model to her children and her community.

I could not recommend another individual more qualified and professional. I strongly believe that Mara’s strengths and talents would flourish in any scenario.

To Whom This May Concern:

Please accept this email as a formal recommendation attesting to the character and integrity of Mara Benson. Mara and I have worked together on numerous projects while performing community and serving as President, and past-president, of the board of directors for the Southeast Valley Regional Association of REALTORS®. This organization is the 12th largest local real estate association in the nation with over 9000 real estate practitioners as members. During my tenure, Mara demonstrated a clear conviction to ensuring the association provided the services, tools and support necessary to best prepare the real estate practitioner for service to the consumer, as well as encouraged experienced practitioners to challenge themselves to new levels of performance and service.

Mara was part of many community service related programs and industry committees, yet always finds time to mentor and coach fellow REALTOR®s at multiple levels of production. Whether it is a simple answer, the writing of an appropriate contingency clause, or engaging in a long term coaching relationship Mara is willing to serve. Doing all this while still maintaining her level of real estate sales production. In addition, I have witnessed samplings of Mara’s professional services as a REALTOR® and her dedication to high-fiduciary representation of her clients, while she demonstrates the aspirational attributes established in the National Association of REALTOR® Code of Ethics and Standards of Practice.

If this isn’t enough charitable and community service, Mara is a great mother. Observing a glimpse of her personal and professional life on Facebook in addition to all of her other interests, Mara is relentless to make a better home and provide her children with all that life has to offer without limitations. She one of the most focused individuals I know, using time and resources efficiently and effectively.

In my humble opinion, Mara is the perfect role model for other REALTOR® practitioners to aspire to.
