        *Mary Ann Schmitt puts her heart in her real estate business. Thorough, polite and professional. She is the best realtor I have ever worked with, by far. I have purchased 3 condos and a house from her. She is wonderful , you will not be disappointed.

Ross Fenn, 2024

        *Mary Ann is the BEST! It took us many months before we found the right house in this tough market but her patience remained unwavering. Being from out of the area, she was our eyes and ears to the market (with very good taste!) and found exactly what we were looking for by narrowing down the options to those that met our strict criteria. She also helped us negotiate a very favorable deal for our purchase. I would HIGHLY recommend her to either buy or sell your house! "
Deb Lange, 2023   

      *Absolutely the best Realtor we’ve ever had. My wife and I have bought and sold over 20 homes over the years. I’ve never had a realtor as good as Mary Ann. She was attentive, very responsive to questions, thorough, helped negotiate effectively to be certain we were the buyers chosen and even did a live FaceTime walk through of a home for us as we were out of state buyers. And did I mention she is like the sweetest person? I’m so thankful we found Mary Ann to help us find our Florida Vacation home. She was wonderful and would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a home in SWFL!!! Thank you Mary Ann!!!  

Ryan Brunworth, 2023


        *Mary Ann was a wonderful real estate agent for us. We actually purchased our house from her and then she helped us sell it when we moved back home to Indiana. She was very helpful getting it on the market quickly and made sure to update us on anything happening regarding the sale, even when she was on her vacation. We loved having her as our agent and feel like she is a friend to us today.

Dan and Janet Jacobs, 2023

         * Mary Ann is the best realtor we have ever had the pleasure to work with. She is efficient, organized, caring, knowledgeable, and always goes above and beyond to make sure her clients are happy. Since buying a home with Mary Ann, I bought two additional condos, also through Mary Ann. She loves her work, and we are truly blessed to have found her, not only as a realtor, but a treasured friend.

Ross Fenn, 2023

      * I have worked with Mary Ann both in buying and listing a home. My most recent experience was choosing to sell my house “as is” following hurricane Ian. Although this is new territory for everyone in our community, Mary Ann did an excellent job in researching home sale trends expected over the next year, legal opinions on selling “as is”, and comps in this unusual market. Mary Ann listened to what was important to me to and I had a signed contract in the first day with my preferred type of buyer. Mary Ann gives sound advice, checks in regularly, and responds to questions right away. She expertly analyzed the market and came up with a suggestion on the listing amount that was spot on. The photos and aerial view were professional. And importantly, she is an absolute pleasure to work with.

Pamela Bloom, 2023

      * Mary Ann Schmitt maintains a very high level of dedication to her clients through the entire real estate transaction process. She makes herself available via phone, text, and email whenever her clients have questions. Her attention to detail and her follow-through are especially helpful. Mary Ann has developed positive professional relationships with many local businesses and individuals who are related to the real estate transaction process. These include but are not limited to title companies, home inspection companies, other real estate businesses, home watch and home maintenance personnel, etc. She has very good knowledge of the local area; this is critical to buyers and sellers alike. Mary Ann truly goes above and beyond for her clients: before, during, and after the transaction.

John Kehoe, 2022

        *Mary Ann Schmitt from Tall Pines Realty recently listed our home to sell. We could not have been happier with her for her competence, skills, professionalism, and positive attitude. Mary Ann communicates well, follows through, pays attention to details, and goes over and beyond to be helpful. I highly recommend Mary Ann, whether you are buying or selling. You will not be disappointed. 

Dick and Elaine Young, 2022

      *It was a pleasure to have Mary Ann as my agent. Looking for a home from out of state was stressful but Mary Ann was great, she was responsive to any questions, looked at properties for me or meet with my friends to look and was open and honest! Highly recommend!

T. Martino, 2022

     *Mary Ann is the best realtor that we have ever worked with. She really pays attention to what you are looking for. She knows the area very well and works very hard at getting exactly what you want. She is definitely the very best! She also explains things very well.

Joy Stanley, 2022

       *Mary Ann was absolutely wonderful to work with. She responded quickly to every text or phone call. At no time did we feel pressured. She was a joy to work with and would highly recommend her to anyone. 

Dennis Elderbroom, 2022

      *I have worked with Mary Ann a few times over the past few years and she is amazing. Just sold our home in 1 day, over asking price!! Her advice and guidance is always spot on, and we look forward to working with her again in the future!!

Tracieanne and Chuck Gillis, 2022

        *I worked with Mary Ann for the second time this year, when I sold my home and bought a condo in the area. Once again, she was superb in every way, carefully tending to every one of my concerns and interests, and ensuring that I landed exactly where I wanted to be, all the while giving generously of her time, considerable expertise, and extraordinary talent for matching needs with opportunities. Mary Ann listens carefully, and does not try to impose her views or tastes, but will chase down every possibility that represents your interests and then fight to get it for you, giving excellent advice at every step along the way. She's got a sharp eye for detail and is a strong negotiator. Even in this somewhat unpredictable market, Mary Ann read the situation precisely: I was exceedingly happy with the results both as a seller and as a buyer. It doesn't get any better than that. Thanks Mary Ann!

Bonnie Gordon, 2021



        *I found working with Mary Ann to be a joy. She was extremely knowledgeable and helpful throughout the whole selling process. This was extremely important as I was out of state. She kept me informed with all updates and answered any questions I had. I was kept in the loop of everything regarding the sale. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a real estate agent.

Lita Truitt, 2021

      *When we were out looking for a home on our own, we found this one. We contacted the agent on the sign, which was Mary Ann. She was so kind and met us within 20 minutes of us calling. She was the agent for the seller but also helped us as a buyer. She was very attentive to any questions or needs that we had. I would definitely recommend Mary Ann to anyone that needs a realtor and will use her in the future if we make any future moves in the area. 

Dan and Janet Jacobs, 2021

     *Being in a service industry I expect the best but am too often disappointed. For that reason I wanted to share my recent home buying experience during the extremely competitive Q2 2021 real estate market where inventory flew off the shelf. Working with Mary Ann Schmitt was a life saver. Not only did I find my home but she helped me stay sane within a crazy environment. Her knowledge is exceptional and her patience exemplary to say the least. Nothing was too big of an ask and generally, Mary Ann thought of it and provided me with options and information before I even knew to ask. She monitored every detail, stayed closely connected to ensure my clarity and was always available. If you want to buy a home and have a quality experience where you can feel comfortable and thoroughly taken care of, contact Mary Ann!

Patti Baker, 2021

      *If you are looking for an exceptional realtor, you will find one in Mary Ann Schmitt. While walking through the neighborhood where we were interested in buying we met a couple who could not say enough about her abilities as a realtor. We contacted Mary Ann and could not agree more with the recommendation we were given. She is a sweet, polite, down-to-earth lady with exceptional organizational skills. Phone calls, texts, and emails were responded to in a timely manner. Since we were out of town for the closing, she handled every detail. Mary Ann is a wonderful, caring realtor whose only objective is to please her clients.

Ross Fenn, Susan Schwaikert, 2021

        *We were introduced to Mary Ann Schmitt by a friend in Rotonda West a year ago. We told her we were looking for a second home but not in hurry. We were there for a month and didn’t see anything that interested us. She knew what we were looking for and stayed in contact with us for a year providing us with listings. On our return a year later we got together and she showed us a variety of homes and condominiums. She ended up finding us the perfect condo in our desired location. Never any pressure, just a consummate professional. We had to do all our closing from New York and Mary Ann helped us through the entire process. We would recommend her to anyone looking for a real estate professional in the Rotonda West, Florida area.

Wayne and Diane Horning, 2021

     *We were so lucky to have Mary Ann referred to us. She helped us navigate purchasing a home in Rotonda West from out of state. Mary Ann is professional, knowledgeable and very pleasant to work with. She knows the market well and was so helpful in finding the perfect home. She was great to offer advice when we asked but didn't push us at any point. She was patient and continued to send us every new listing on the market as soon as they were available so that we could find the perfect home. She continued to assist us all the way through closing. Mary Ann, thanks for helping us find that Perfect Home!!! 

Kris and Wayne Dirks, 2021

    *It was such a pleasure working with Mary Ann. She was highly recommended by our neighbor and I see why. She had our home sold over the weekend. She told us she was a really good negotiator and believe me when I tell you, she is! She is very knowledgeable about the whole process. You will not find a better agent to work with or for you.

Dave Wyatt, 2020

      *Mary Ann is the best real estate agent that we have ever dealt with. She has helped us purchase 2 lots and a new house in the last 2 years. Her local knowledge, skill, friendly demeanor and superior negotiation skills have made buying and selling in the area an enjoyable and rewarding experience. Her attention to detail and ensuring that we understood the process, made buying for non-residents of Florida such as us, much simpler. We highly recommend Mary Ann for all your real estate needs.

John and Audrey Schmidt from Canada, 2020


        *We met Mary Ann over the phone as we were moving from Colorado to Florida. As soon as we arrived we officially met with her and she started lining up properties to see. She made us feel so comfortable in a stressful situation and we felt as if we had known her our entire lives. She was available to answer our questions 7 days a week and went above and beyond. We feel so fortunate to have found her thru a recommendation from a friend. She is professional and caring and is just the best!  

Donna and Mike Schnurle, 2020

      *We purchased a home with Mary Ann's help. She knew the community we were interested in and kept us informed of the current homes for sale. She was our eyes on the ground since we live thousands of miles away. She did all the due diligence for us. Found us a lender, inspector, handymen, etc. We purchased the home sight unseen based on Mary Ann's informed information. She goes above and beyond for her client's.

Leroy and Janet Tornquist, 2020

         *Mary Ann is, in our opinion is the best real estate agent we've ever worked with in over 35 years of purchasing real estate. She's extremely personable and cares about her customers. She was very responsive to any and every question and circumstance we had to navigate. We never felt like she was pressuring or pushing us to make any quick decisions either. We live in the Tampa Florida area and we purchased our new residence in North Port Florida. With that being said, since she was such a great realtor, when we list our home for sale in Tampa, she will be our listing agent!! She was definitely a pleasure and blessing to work with!! 

Janet and Arthur Betts, 2020

            *Mary Ann Schmitt goes above and beyond in every aspect of the buying and selling process. She recently helped us in the purchase of property, the selection of a builder for our new home, and in the selling of a home. We greatly appreciate her knowledge and skill. Mary Ann communicates and follows through. She listens. She advises. She pays attention to detail , and she works hard for her clients. She is very professional, yet also friendly and caring. We highly recommend Mary Ann Schmitt! 

Peg and David Kehoe, 2020

Best Realtor there is.

Ange and Bob O'Neil, 2020

           *Mary Ann did a wonderful job working with me to purchase a home. During most of the homebuying experience I was out-of-state and Mary Ann made the process seamless. She listened carefully to what my priorities were, added her expertise when asked, and made very sound, realistic recommendations. She knows the area and real estate market well. Mary Ann prides herself in going the extra mile to make sure her customers have the best service and experience possible, which was evidenced as I worked with her. She is trustworthy and an absolute pleasure to work with, combining excellence in both the business and personal side of real estate. I highly recommend her services. You will not be disappointed.

Pam Bloom, 2020

           *Mary Ann helped us purchase our home in Rotonda West and we can wholeheartedly recommend her to anyone who is looking to buy in this area. We were living in a short-term rental and were on a tight timeline. From the first meeting, we were very comfortable and felt like we were in good hands. She was with us every step of the way with a smile and a positive attitude helping to keep us from getting discouraged. She was very responsive, answering all texts and emails promptly. She was accommodating and quickly scheduled showings whenever we identified a property we wanted to see. She is knowledgeable about the area and able to make informed recommendations and referrals. She was on top of things and showed us that she is definitely willing to go the extra mile.

Tom and Lisa Lutzi, 2019

Mary Ann couldn't have been more supportive or caring for every detail along the way. She is exactly what you would ever want in a real estate agent.

Tom and Beth Eifert, 2019


            *Recently my wife and I purchased a home in Englewood Fl. We found the house three days before the end of our vacation. Mary Ann from Tall Pines Reality was an immense help in our negotiations from afar. She worked very hard to help us through the process and I will recommend her to everyone.

Thomas and Cathleen Tobyne, 2019

              *Mary Ann was absolutely awesome to work with during and after the buying process. She stepped in to help us. She made the process understandable and seamless. We were unable to be in Florida for the closing. She communicated with our company in Michigan and the attorneys in Florida to close the transaction. Mary Ann helped with medical resources which we needed to establish in Florida.. She also helped with finding people to address inspection issues. There was not one question we had that went unanswered. We would recommend Mary Ann to anyone wanting to explore buying a home in the Englewood area.

Barb and Stewart Schultz, 2019


             *We greatly appreciated Mary Ann's professional knowledge, her ongoing efforts to stay on top of the process, and her frequent communication.

We very highly recommend her.assisted us in our search for and successful purchase of property in Rotonda West, FL.

Dave and Peggy Kehoe, 2019


            *We are so fortunate to have found our realtor, Mary Ann. For the many months previous to our cross-country move, she consistently kept us aware and informed of the housing market. When we finally met her in Florida, we knew we had hit the jackpot. She is energetic, easy to work with, a good listener, available for our many calls, and a "master" at all-things-Florida (such a huge help for newbies like us). With her hard work and persistence, we found our perfect home on the first day. Mary Ann guided us through each and every detail throughout the process right until the house became ours. Thank you, Mary Ann!

Bruce and Collen Petersen, 2018

        *I come from a real estate family. I know what to look for when it comes to seeing quality in a real estate agent. Mary Ann Schmidt surpassed our expectations with friendly and professional service. Her prompt responses to our questions gave us the confidence we needed when buying our out of state property. Thank you Mary Ann!

Ron and Gloria Morris, 2018

        *Friends gave us Mary Ann Schmitt's name as they had used her previously and enjoyed working with her. Mary Ann is a true professional, but also takes that extra step to personalize the buying process. She went out of her way a number of times to make it easier for us because we had limited time. I would highly recommend Mary Ann. I have worked with realtors in the past, and Mary Ann Schmitt is at the top of my list.

Robert and Susan McCarthy, 2018


        *We are extremely satisfied and grateful for the job Mary Ann did in selling our Rotonda condominium. From our first meeting and on through closing she was most professional but with a warm and caring manner. Her recommendations and suggestions were all spot on. She has a delightful sense of humor that helped us survive the tight spots in the process. Voice mail or texts were promptly returned. We have no hesitation in giving her highest recommendation. You won't be sorry.

Tom and Mary Lou Muschik, 2017

     *My mom & dad had purchased two lots in Florida many years ago. My dad has since passed so my mom decided to sell the lots since she had no intention of relocating to Florida & doing anything with them. My mom lives in California & I in New Mexico. To help my mom I did an internet search for a realtor located in Florida & luckily found Mary Ann Schmitt. With the listing & sale all having to be done long distance, Mary Ann was so very kind, helpful & accommodating. She explained all that needed to be done, stayed in touch with updates & then had both of my parents lots sold in less than a year. This was such a relief for my mom. I thank Mary Ann for bringing this closure to my mom.

Dana Paxton, 2017

         *I was introduced to Mary Ann by a friend when I was getting ready to sell my house. In the past year, I have done 4 real estate transactions with Mary Ann, and I could not have been happier. I can attest to Mary Ann's competence, skills, professionalism, and positive attitude. She communicates well, follows through, pays attention to details, and goes over and beyond to be helpful. She became more than a realtor, but a friend! I highly recommend Mary Ann, whether you are buying or selling. You will not be disappointed!

Sherrie L. Guccini, 2017

Mindy and Joel Wilson, 2017

        *We have now worked with Mary Ann to purchase two properties and sell one and each of those three experiences she has made a delight. Even in the eleventh hour when we are facing challenges with our insurance company and our closing attorney, Mary Ann went above and beyond to help resolve any outstanding issues. I would absolutely recommend her to friends and family.

Tracy and Chuck Gillis, 2017

        *Mary Ann was an absolute pleasure with whom to work. She covered all the bases and was readily available for us. She did exactly what she promised when she promised it. We have done numerous real estate deals in the past several years and Mary Ann heads the list of Realtors with whom we have worked.

Bill and Patti Kraft, 2017

        *She is absolutely a gem! She carefully listened to exactly what we were looking for and went out of her way to find just the perfect one. If there was one she didn't think quite fit us, she also told us why! I definitely would recommend her very highly! She is very personable and just so great to work with. She found us the perfect home and has continued to answer all of our questions since we are new to the area.

Joy and Steve Stanley, 2017

          *Mary Ann was very tenacious in finding our home in Englewood, FL. She was detail oriented, patient, and went the extra mile to find the right type of home for our needs. We can't thank her enough for her quick response and follow through.

Christine and Dennis Blaszak, 2017

             *Mary Ann is the best realtor I can imagine. She was always there for me and helped me find my dream home. She is very sweet, but don't let that fool you. When it was time to negotiate, she really went to bat for me. I couldn't be happier with the outcome!

Donna Mesler, 2016

                 *Mary Ann is the consummate professional realtor. We have nothing but great things to say about her - attention to us, - reliability, - patience, - listening strengths. We were always able to reach her with questions and received only the best in advice and counsel throughout our sale. Her friendliness and easy manner makes her top-shelf in our books.

John and Chris Delaney, 2016

               *Mary Ann was with us every step of the way! She found homes in our price range to fit our criteria, gave helpful advice about Florida living, promptly communicated with us as we negotiated, and was electronically knowledgeable to sign items from another state. Mary Ann was present during an inspection and walk-through to hear first hand details needing attention and recommended professionals who could accomplish these. She was very friendly, sincere, and someone we could trust - just what we wanted in a realtor! 

Bonnie and Timothy Tarara, 2016

          * There is something to be said for being at the right place at the right time! As we explored places to rent for next year, we were fortunate to meet Mary Ann and ended up buying our own condo! Her timely response and knowledge of the area allowed us to look at various properties. Our questions were answered promptly and her insight was appreciated. She was very informative and thorough but in a relaxed way respectful in realizing the impact of our decision. With closing in FL and living in NH, it was a new procedure for us but with Mary Ann's expertise, she helped us navigate the process. We look forward to seeing her again when we make it back to FL and would highly recommend her to family and friends.

Kathy Bean and Dave Nylund, 2016


               *It was a pleasure to work with Mary Ann Schmitt. We were selling our home and she supported us throughout the process. Mary Ann went above and beyond when a tornado hit our area. She contacted us immediately, and assisted in the process, as we were already out of state. Even months after the closing, Mary Ann cordially answers any questions we have!

Bonnie Soman, 2016

                *Mary Ann Schmitt was recommended to us by a friend, and we could not have been more satisfied with the services she provided and the professionalism with which she dealt with us and the sellers of the houses we looked at. We were pressed for time, and Mary Ann was able to show us 12 houses in two days. She started the process by explaining the area to us, outlining the types--and price ranges--of properties that were on the market, and questioning us about what we were interested in purchasing. After the first day, she revised the list of potential houses to view on the second day and made arrangements to visit each one. We did not feel that a single showing was a waste of time. We decided to make an offer on the second day, and she gave us excellent advice about what she thought was reasonable. The offer was accepted. Mary Ann was then tremendously helpful as she guided us through the process--we had returned home to Pennsylvania--of house inspection, closing issues, and a thousand other details that had to be handled before the closing. And the best part, besides being extremely professional and knowledgeable, she's a delight to spend time with!

Peter and Fran Rainsford (2016)




                * If you want to work with someone who really cares about your happiness and satisfaction, call Mary Ann. She listens carefully to what you want, asks great questions, and will go the extra mile every time. I decided to buy a home well ahead of my planned schedule, and Mary Ann was there for me every step of the way, helping to ensure success on a tight turn around. She treats clients with respect, is entirely professional, warm and welcoming, and she gets results. I would work with her again in a heartbeat, but since I'm planning on staying put for a while, you should call Mary Ann. You won't be disappointed.

Bonnie Gordon (2015)

                  *We feel so fortunate to have worked with Mary Ann in the purchase of our condo. She is very caring, honest and thorough. We felt she had our best interests at heart throughout the whole process. She is knowledgeable about the area and the entire realty process.

Mark and Melinda Christman (2015)

                  *Mary Ann was terrific. We bought our home from Connecticut and she helped us the whole way and did a lot more then she needed to as a real estate agent. At a stressful time she made it much easier for us. I would recommend her to everyone.

Lyn Kreager  (2015)

                   *It was our pleasure to work with Mary Ann as we tried to negotiate the real estate market in Rotonda West, FL. She was always available to us to answer questions and communicate with the buyer of our lot. Everything went very smoothly and we would surely utilize her services again if needed.

Tom and Beverly Costello (2015)

                *My husband and I sold four homes and purchased three in the last 6 years. Have dealt with many realtors and of them all I can only say Mary Ann is the only one we would use again. She is very hands on with people and she is totally a people person. She always returns your phone calls which is a plus in my book. We feel we have not only gains knowledge from Mary Ann we also have gained a friend for life. Mary Ann never made my husband or I feel like we were just a number or maybe a meal ticket. She truly is good at her job and she LOVES it.

Bob & Beverly Sienkiewicz  (2015)

              *My husband and I met Mary Ann when we were driving through an area we had identified as being our ideal spot for a Florida home. We just walked into her office because we were driving by and she stopped everything she was doing to talk to us about living in Florida. We told her we were going back to PA and sell our house and we would be in touch. We did just that and where shocked when our house sold in a week! We drove back to Florida and Mary Ann met us at 8 AM the day after Labor Day and showed us nine possible houses. We choose one of these and by the next day the sellers had accepted our offer. Mary Ann worked with us in Florida while we went back to PA to conclude the details of the sale and the move to Florida. Mary Ann did a million small tasks to make our move possible and comfortable. My husband and I both agree that we could never have made this move without the help of Mary Ann. She was there night and day when questions and complications came up. We are so grateful and feel so blessed that we walked into her office because it began our journey to a new life here in Florida. We would recommend her to anyone who seriously is looking for a home.

Autumn Hardenstine (2015)

              *Mary Ann was patient with us, knowing that our ultimate buying decision was not going to happen fast. As we were culminating a 6 year search for 'that perfect house in a perfect local' in Florida. We both highly recommend Mary Ann as she will give her best to her clients and act in their best interests!
