Darby and Mary Beth are the best realtors in town. You really will not understand the difference in service until you work with the best. They provided great advice in order to prepare the home for sell, price it, stage it, and sell it. We accepted an offer in the first week it was listed after multiple offers over asking were received. They actually did all the showings themselves. Darby also represented us in the home we purchased with these sales proceeds, and she is equally good on the purchases as the sales. I would definitely recommend Darby and team to my friends and family and would work with them again.
My experience buying a home with Mary Beth and Darby Woods was nothing short of amazing. As a first time home buyer, I felt very comfortable and learned a lot by going through this process with them. They walked me through every step of the process and made for a very pleasurable buying experience. I was extremely grateful for the diligence that they put fourth through searching for all the building permits, and other documents that I would not have known to ask for. I feel as though they went above and beyond and out of their way to make sure I was buying the best home possible. I have already began to recommend them to others that are looking to purchase and will continue to recommend them for years to come. Mary Beth and Darby, thank you for my dream home!
Mary Beth Woods has been my realtor for personal and business residential real estate purchases and sales for the past 30 years. Long ago she gained my trust and appreciation for her dedicated and thoughtful efforts for every aspect of my real estate pursuits. Recently, with her expert guidance and experience, she successfully marketed and sold my personal home that has been the center of my family life for close to 25 years. One could not be in better hands to guide one through the process of selling or purchasing a residential property than with this expert in the Los Angeles market. Equally important, Mary Beth makes every project a personal relationship with her clients, infused with care, empathy, and her exceptional character.
Wonderful to work with! Mary Beth was fantastic to work with not only with selling the property on Roscomare, but being extremely helpful in keeping it rented for 20 plus years. I never expected that we would be able to get the price we did and with 20 offers in about a day, selling above the asking price with a very short escrow was amazing! Mary Beth has always been very prompt in keeping in touch with me during the many years the property was rented and made sure we had great tenants. Following the sale of Roscomare, she assisted me in finding a property in Pasadena, closer to my home. She did her research and we found the perfect place within a few hours one afternoon. It was such a great property, it even rented before it was listed! I would highly recommend her to everyone, as I can’t imagine anyone doing a more perfect job. She’s terrific!
Had a terrific experience selling my home with Mary Beth Woods Mary Beth is the best realtor I’ve ever worked with. She is a consummate professional who provides superb client service. She is extremely knowledgeable about the neighborhoods she focuses on. Mary Beth is a great listener who is responsive to her clients needs. She provided information, guidance and direction without pushing me in any direction. Rather she focused in on my requirements and preferences. Mary Beth crafted a successful marketing strategy for my home that she executed beautifully with great results. I have and will continue to recommend her highly.
If you are selling or buying a home, you could not possibly be in better hands than Mary Beth Woods'. My wife and I went through a very challenging sell-buy transition with a short 30-day escrow. We were literally down to the wire (transfer) with our home sold, but no place to go. No exaggeration, if not for Mary Beth, we would have been living on the streets with all our stuff in storage. She didn't go the extra mile, she went the extra 20 miles time and again to make things happen that seemed impossible. Mary Beth is a true miracle worker. Equally important, her negotiating skills are second to none. She always had our back and made sure we got our ask. Several prospective buyers were trying to lowball us, but Marybeth would have none of it. She stood firm, saying (and I quote) "You can't buy it at that price." Want to have a great real estate experience? Then all you have to do is sign with Mary Beth Woods. It will be the best move you ever made. Sincerely,

Dear Mary Beth, Since moving into my new home I have made a number of cosmetic changes and my big project this year is the backyard. I continue to refer to you as the best realtor I have ever worked with. Thanks again for all of your help. You must drop by some time! Take Care! Sincerely,
Mary Beth, We can’t thank you enough for all of your help. We love our new house and are so excited to move in next week! We hope you can enjoy a night out on us. And my Mom has this photo envelope and loves to put photos of the grand-kids in it. Enjoy

Dear Mary Beth, Where do I start to thank you. Your patience in dealing with my “seller’s anxieties” is so very much appreciated. I am thrilled that you could be here at the “official” house unveiling – we have traveled a long way since we sat in the wood paneled den that preceded me and “negotiated” a price. Many, many, thanks.

Dear Mary Beth...... Now that we're finally done with escrows and moving vans and all that jazz, we want to take a minute to tell you how much we appreciate all you did for our family - and you did a lot! To begin with, you sold our house at a price that both sides thought was fair, and you kept everyone calm and well-mannered throughout the inevitable snags that occur in an escrow process. Then you moved us into a swell rental home and negotiated the terms of that deal for us. And THEN you found us our new home and we beat out 4 other buyers because of your amazing negotiating skills. Mary Beth, you are a magnificent blend of professional expertise and personal touch. You're guided by a strong ethic of fairness, and this enables you to be refreshingly clear and direct in your communication of any issues that are on the table. We always felt you had our best interests at heart during all three of these deals. So thank you again......

Dear Mary Beth, I want to thank you and your team for your truly heroic efforts on our behalf these last few weeks. You cannot imagine how much moving into our new place has meant to the girls and me. If you could have seen the happiness in my daughter's eyes the first (and to date the only) night we spend at "335", albeit devoid of furniture, you would feel satisfaction for a job well done. We have peace. I look forward to working with you on Bundy. My sincere thanks and appreciation to you again, dear Mary Beth. Yours truly,
Hi Mary Beth, The most difficult part of moving is making the decision and actually DOING it! Without Mary Beth’s knowledge and guidance, I’m not sure I would have been able to take that first step, and I know it was her expertise that got us such a positive result. From our very first meeting, she was able to analyze the market and help us price the house to maximize our selling power. She also helped me take on the daunting task of preparing the house for sale by going through the house room–by-room and helping me create a “to do” list. This made an overwhelming task do-able. She also knew how to maximize the house’s potential and the importance of timing in putting it on the market. Once we were ready, the process moved so fast we could hardly believe it! Mary Beth knows the market, is respected by her peers, and her years of experience in preparing the property for sale, analyzing offers and negotiating agreements are reflected in our happy outcome! Thank you Mary Beth!
Darby and Mary Beth are truly the dynamic duo. They were both with us when we bought our house in 2010, found us renters when we moved, and sold our house 5 years later. We consider them family and they genuinely want the best for their clients! It has been a pleasure knowing them professionally and personally. Could not ask for better agents! They are the best of the best!

Hi! Well, the dust is almost settled and the boxes are almost unpacked and I have found a roommate – yeah! I just wanted to formally thank you for all of the time and expertise you gave to my family throughout the transaction of my first home. I feel GREAT here! Thank you so much.
You are fantastic! If it is possible to give 250% effort – you did! Thank you so very much. Sorry it took us so long to find the right house.
