What My Clients Say

Client relationships are extremely important to me. Helping a family find the perfect Mexico Beach Real Estate property is what I live for, and I devote as much time as is needed to accomplish that goal. I strive more than just client “satisfaction”, my clients deserve more. Here is what they say.

It has been our pleasure to work with the best agent on the Forgotten Coast.

Mary Blackburn is by far the most professional and helpful Realtor with whom we have dealt.

Over the past 16 years we have entered into nearly a dozen real estate transactions in the Mexico Beach/Beaches area. We have dealt with a large cross section of the Realtors here. Mary Blackburn is by far the most professional and helpful Realtor with whom we have dealt.

Mary successfully sold our beach front home for us in a very difficult market, and then found us a perfect condo for us to downsize into. The seller was not an eager seller, but Mary not only got our offer accepted, but also introduced us to a mortgage company that provided financing.

We were out of town when the closing occurred but Mary was there to make certain all the sellers obligations were met and we were able to walk into our new home all fixed and ready to go.

We are thrilled with our new home! I hope the next 16 years don't bring another dozen transactions, but we will definitely will use Mary for every real estate transaction we do entertain!

Mary is the consummate professional Realtor! Mary may not know it, but her motto is "Go the Extra Mile!"

We appreciated all the "above and beyond" service you provided us.

We just want to take a moment and say thank you very much for your extensive help in the purchase of our new home in Mexico Beach. There's no way to express how much we appreciated all the "above and beyond" service you provided us.

Even though we've never been there before, we started looking online into the Mexico Beach area a couple of years ago for a home to retire to and you kept us in the loop and e-mailed us regularly. We lost count on how many e-mails and questions you always "quickly" answered for us. Don't you ever sleep?

When we came to visit Mexico Beach last month you had a list of houses within our requirements and budget. After taking us around and helping us find our "retirement home" you made the buying part a piece of cake. You knew all the right people from home inspector's to mortgage bankers and everything in between.

Living in Nevada, we had a lot of anxiety about closing from out of state, but you had everything well coordinated between all parties involved, removing any worries we might have had. We still can't believe how fast we closed on the house!

One last thought, being in the military for 20 years we've been lucky to travel all around, but we've never met friendly people than the people we've met at Mexico Beach. We look forward to retiring and moving completely to Mexico Beach and starting the next chapter of our lives, but we will always have you to thank for finding us a home.

Mary performed a fantastic job this summer in the purchase of a townhome.

We enjoyed working with Mary AND she found us our dream home location. She was available when we needed her and found all the answers to any questions that came up with our lot purchase. She was also able to put us in touch with other local business that are reliable and trustworthy. We were totally comfortable doing business with her even though we live in another state, knowing she was looking after our interests. I would feel comfortable recommending Mary to our friends.

Our experience with Mary was great.

She was very informative and helped the home buying experience go smoothly. Best of all, Mary made us feel welcome and always returned our calls/messages in a timely manner. We would highly recommend her to anyone interested in purchasing a home in the Mexico Beach/St Joe area.

Mary was phenomenal!

We knew during our first trip to Mexico Beach in April 2011 that we wanted to buy a place there. Our friends who had bought their property through Mary a couple of years earlier referred us to her. We were only in town for a few days, so she immediately scheduled time to meet with us and show us properties. Although we didn't find anything perfect for us on this trip, Mary continued to keep us informed of new listings and customize our search. When we returned in April 2012, we again set up time to go out and look at properties. She spent a lot of time with us. We found a property and knew it was right for us. We can't put into words the amount of time and energy Mary contributed to make our purchase work. She went ABOVE and BEYOND what we would ever expect from an agent. It all worked out and we are so happy with our purchase. It is perfect for our family. We hope to enjoy it for many, many years to come. Mary was not only our real estate agent, she is now a valued friend and neighbor!

She really had my best interests at heart

Mary made our transaction as smooth and easy as possible- she anticipated all of my questions, and took great pains to explain everything to us. She really had my best interests at heart, and I would use her services again in a heartbeat!


Fulfill a lifelong dream

Spring 2012, I was fortunate to fulfill a lifelong dream of buying a home at the beach. My single most important decision was choosing a realtor, Mary Blackburn, Sundance Realty. Not only was Mary professionally qualified but she took my transaction very personally. Mine was a short sale, that in itself a challenge. Living in another state, Mary took complete control, handled every detail keeping me updated via phone, text messages and email. Always keeping my best interests in the forefront she arranged inspections, repairmen and even closed the deal electronically. Mary went many, many extra miles for me. She is patient and gracious but above all Mary is trustworthy. A quality hard to find these days. Thanks for making a long distance move go smoothly.

Still had that vacation spot feel

My wife and I knew we wanted to retire to a coastal area from Dallas and prices were down in Florida so it was time to act. We settled on Mexico Beach because of the small size but still had that vacation spot feel. Mary showed us several houses however we ended up with a bank owned lot. She really worked with the bank to get us a great price.
