My family and I want to thank you for the excellent job you did in representing us in the sale or our parent's Millbrae home. You worked in a professional manner, giving us good advice when it came to price and presentation of the property. We would recommend you to anybody contemplating a real estate transaction. It was a surprise to see the deal completed quickly in this challenging market.

One of my dreams was to purchase my own home, however being a single woman with an average income I never thought it possible, not until I met Mary Ellen that is. She is a real miracle worker. My thanks and gratitude.

Mary Ellen handled the sell of our home aggressively and professionally. She worked diligently in preparing us and our home for sale.

I hired Mary Ellen both to sell my home in Millbrae and help me find a new home in San Bruno. She did a fantastic job with both transactions. She was able to recommend changes I needed to make to get the best price for my home and handled all the details with utmost efficiency. Mary Ellen also took me to several houses, looking for the perfect fit for what I wanted. After being outbid on the first two houses, she was able to help me with a strategy to successfully purchase my new home. She was always there to answer my numerous questions and made the entire experience sooth and easy. I would recommend Mary Ellen to anyone buying or selling a home.

It was a pleasure to work with Mary Ellen on the sale of my mother's house in Burlingame. From the listing interview to the close of escrow, Mary Ellen guided us expertly through the complexities of selling a home in today's market. Her experience and professional knowledge inspired us with confidence. She was always available when questions arose, promptly returning calls, texts, and arranging to meet us whenever necessary. She knows the market and is attuned to what buyers are looking for. She helped us present our home in the best possible light, resulting in multiple offers above the asking price. Working with Mary Ellen is like working with a friend who is also an experienced professional--you know the outcome will be positive for everyone.

It was such an amazing pleasure and delight to have Mary Ellen Pellegrini as my Real Estate agent for the recent sale of my home on Pinehurst Court in Millbrae. Mary Ellen was always so very concerned about my feelings and desire to be completely comfortable with the entire outcome. No worries-It was much more than that. Overjoyed would be a better description. I will always consider Mary Ellen as my friend for life. She is like a daughter to me. I will forever be grateful for the opportunity of having her as my agent. I sincerely appreciate all of her hard work and fantastic professionalism. She's absolutely the best!!!

We recently selected Mary Ellen Pellegrini to sell our property in San Carlos. From the outset of our relationship, we were highly satisfied. She was very professional, reliable, and personable. She assisted us with the selection and coordination of several contractors who performed painting, carpentry, and foundation work. She scheduled prompt inspections as wall as a staging specialist who made the interior look great. She then conducted several open houses that led to the above asking price offer we eventually accepted. And all this was accomplished between December/January 2016-2017 in a traditionally slower market period. Once the offer was accepted, the deal closed in 3 weeks. During this whole time period, Mary Ellen was on top of all aspects of this transaction and continuously kept us informed. We commend and highly recommend her to others selling their properties on the San Francisco Peninsula.
Tim and Linda (San Carlos).
Mary Ellen is awesome. Personality galore, efficient, and really fun to work with. Within 6 weeks of our first meeting our Hillsborough home was sold. She had every needed resource on speed dial and handled every aspect of the sale with NO hitches. Even with all of my questions, she was extremely patient.
I highly recommend Mary Ellen.
Barry (Hillsborough)
In February 2018 I decided to sell my home on Helen Drive in Millbrae.  A friend recommended that I call Mary Ellen Pellegrini and gave me her business card. The next day we set up an appointment for her to come meet me and view the house.  During our initial conversation it became apparent that Mary Ellen and I would get along. She gave me her professional opinion about what we needed to do to get the house ready to sell and listened to my input and concerns. As a result, we worked together as a team to accomplish our goal. Mary Ellen is very organized and presented me with a schedule we would follow to get the house on the market in a timely manner.  The contractors she recommended were all excellent. We managed to get the house packed and ready for the movers by the beginning of April and the house went on the market the beginning of May and we closed escrow on May 31st. During this hectic time Mary Ellen was in touch with me daily and always had a smile and the ability to say the right words when the anxiety and stress of the situation got the best of me. 

Mary Ellen Pellegrini is knowledgeable, professional, well organized and an excellent realtor who understands the complexities of her profession as well as those of her clients.  I highly recommend Mary Ellen to anyone who needs a real estate professional who knows how to accomplish the successful marketing of your property.

My family worked with Mary Ellen Pellegrini to sell our family
home in Millbrae. We are three siblings and Mary Ellen was able to
negotiate our diverse personalities with calm, humor and great
professionalism. She has a wonderful personality, a good eye
and clearly understands the local housing market and what it
takes to show a house at it’s best. Her take-charge commitment
to renovation enhancements ensured all jobs were done in a
timely manner, especially with two of us living out of the area.
She got us through an emotionally difficult time and we are so
very grateful. We highly recommend Mary Ellen Pellegrini for
all your Real Estate needs.

With Gratitude,
Frances Gauci Roth (Millbrae)


"Mary Ellen kept us on track through a very difficult situation taking us through the emptying, remodeling, and sale of our family home in Millbrae. The decision to sell was a long time coming and was made with reluctance. Once made, Mary Ellen sprang into action, developing a timeline and getting us organized. Mary Ellen made recommendations as to the improvements that would give us a good return on our investment. We heavily relied on her to make decisions on color and style. She had a contact for everything needed and led us through the whole process in a matter of 3 months. Mary Ellen's sense of humor carried us through all of the indecision and differing opinions of three siblings. Thank you Mary Ellen for your kindness and patience, and for getting us a good solid sales price! Josie, Rob & Phran"
