Mary Lou Skowronski – “Agent Mary Lou” as we fondly called her, proved to us that she was more than capable and successfully achieved positive results as she effortlessly dealt with Guardianship and Probate proceedings, multiple Attorneys, Subcontractors, Stagers, and a myriad of Governmental and Regulatory Agencies and overcame all obstacles encountered during the complicated transaction and compliance requirements. Without hesitation, without complaints, and with a very positive attitude.  Agent Mary Lou under promised, and over-delivered. Amongst her many outstanding character traits that she possesses are her honesty and strict adherence to all professional ethical duties and obligations that should be expected from a realtor. Moreover, she provided personal services that exceeded her legally binding obligations, relating to protection of assets (furniture and personal belongings), the sale of furniture and the reduction of maintenance expenses, through her referral network and resolved collateral conflicts that arose during the process.  We highly recommend Mary Lou Skowronski to any seller of high-end property that seeks to receive the highest value from a professional agent at Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices California Properties.

When it was time to sell my Newport Beach home, I Googled, “Best Newport Realtor” and Mary Lou Skowronski’s name popped up. We met, and she was so knowledgeable, I immediately listed my beach house with Agent Mary Lou. She used her background in interior design to stage and prepare my home for viewing. She did such a great job, the house sold in only 10 days! Mary Lou took care of everything. She even helped me find the home of my dreams in Ladera Ranch! I highly recommend Mary Lou Skowronski.

Agent Mary Lou was our realtor on the purchase of our home. She was AWESOME in keeping us abreast of progress, items that needed attention, and was pro-buyer in interactions with the seller’s agent. She was informative, honest, straight-forward, supported decisions we made and truly made us feel like she was on our side. I would wholeheartedly use Mary Lou Skowronski in another real estate transaction and highly recommend her to anyone who is searching for a realtor they can trust.

Thanks for caring about local merchants. Your creative abilities and professional marketing skills that you willingly share, have proven that anyone can make a difference when they get involved!

Balboa Bob – Balboa Peninsula Village – Newport Beach, CA


Agent Mary Lou was extremely helpful and very knowledgeable about the real estate market. My mother was considering making a purchase in the Newport Beach area as a second home. As a fellow licensed agent in Nevada, I wanted to make sure my mother was going to be working with a real estate agent that could answer all her questions, and devote the time my mother needed to making this decision.Mary Lou was very responsive to all of our needs, providing us not only with properties that were available, but also with suggestions and information regarding her market. It has been a pleasure as both a real estate professional and a client to work with a real estate agent as dedicated as Mary Lou. There is no doubt in my mind that she treats all her clients with the utmost of professionalism and integrity and one would be lucky to work with an agent of such caliber. Thank you again Agent Mary Lou for all your hard work.

“Wow! Where do I start? It was my honor and privilege to see Mary Lou “in motion”. It is my fifth year in organizing an amazing picnic for the families of our fallen here in Orange County. (Facebook – Snowflake event from California!) In previous years, our “decorations” were minimal at best but punctuated with a lot of heart and passion for these deserving families and their children. My fellow colleague stepped up to the plate as my Decorations co-chair this year and in her words, “we need to make this special for these families”. She immediately organized her committee and I was able to attend to the other moving parts so that we could welcome 44 families, 77 of their children and 35 of their guests to a “Jungle Adventure” backdrop that was over the top.  I would venture to say that Mary Lou approaches everything she does in life with the same sense of purpose and commitment “to get the job done”. I would recommend her in any transaction as a buyer or sellers agent and it would be my privilege to work across the table in a Real Estate transaction.  With great respect. Trisha Marshall, fellow colleague at Berkshire Hathaway Home Services, California Properties.”
