There are many things I can say about the high quality of service I provide, but probably none would be as credible as testimonials from some of my clients themselves. So please take a moment to read the following testimonials. I hope they indicate my experience and integrity, as well as make it clear how much I enjoy helping people with their real estate needs!
-Mary Ann S., Doylestown, PA
“Mary Lou Erk has been our real estate agent for 26 years. In that time we have changed homes a few times and also bought many investment rental properties. She has always been there with great advice and local knowledge on repairs, parks, restaurants, schools and taxes. When the economy changed (several times in 26 years) she was there to guide us through and always put in the extra time and effort to find the right buyer or seller for us. When are children relocated to Portland, Oregon she hooked us up with agents and services in their new city. Mary Lou has won many real estate awards amongst her peers and stays current with every class available on changes in the real estate world. We are so lucky we met her in 1986.”
-Beverly E., Erwinna, PA

Thank you for going above and beyond our expectations."
-Jim and Joyce S., Dublin, PA
“Words simply cannot capture the service, professionalism, and dedication that Mary Lou Erk provided us in our recent real estate transactions. We turned to Mary Lou as both a selling agent and a buying agent. We were initially hesitant about enlisting the services of someone with so much experience and knowledge to handle and sell our “meager” townhome. However, Mary Lou handled its sale almost as if it were a palatial estate and gave the home—and us—the attention that was needed. Having traversed those waters, Mary Lou was equally focused and dedicated in helping us find and secure a new home. Her schedule was seemingly always open for a showing or two, and she had great patience for the litany of questions (and anxiety) that we threw at her. From her corresponding with the selling party to the arrangement of inspections to the coordination of all the final details, Mary Lou was on top of everything and facilitated everything with both professionalism and charm. We firmly believe that any real estate agent can sell you a “house”. Only the likes of Mary Lou, however, can sell you a “home”. We consider Mary Lou a good friend to this day and would wholeheartedly enlist her services again should we decide to sell our home and find something new.”
-David C., Solebury, PA
“I have worked with Mary Lou since 1992. She is the whole reason that I got my real estate license. I have always respected the way she maintains her sense of humor, ethics, integrity, self respect, self esteem and character even in this tough business. She is one of the most amazing people I know and a top notch realtor to boot!”
-Kim G., Bucks County, PA
“It has been my pleasure to have known Mary Lou, both as a friend and colleague for many years. Mary Lou is an highly experienced and capable Realtor, with expertise in finding the perfect solution for her clients and customers in all kinds of markets. Her integrity, honesty, and dedication to the people she works with is unmatched. I would highly recommend Mary Lou as your agent of choice.”
“As first-time homebuyers, my husband and I were excited and also nervous about the process of buying a house. Mary Lou made it so easy and was always available to answer questions and explain things. I would send her an email before I left for work at 7:00 am, expecting an answer much later in the day, and five minutes later she'd have an email back to me. She was on vacation before our closing date, if real estate agents really ever get those, and even while away was working to make sure everything was going smoothly and all our paperwork was completed on time. We hope to not move again for a long time, but if we do we're calling Mary Lou!”
-Angela & Chris C., Macungie, PA
“Mary Lou Erk's attention to details from her staging suggestions, the professionally produced virtual on-line home tour, and the extensive advertising for "Open House" tours were beyond our expectations. She was masterful from "day one" to the professionally conducted closing. Mary Lou's skill is intuitive!!!!!!
We would not consider any one else to be our agent!”
-Dixie & Joe W., Doylestown, PA
“Mary Lou Erk is the best real estate agent we have had. She is very honest and gives you an opinion based on what is in your best interest as a customer. She is very responsive to your concerns and questions and an excellent communicator when it comes to making things happen. I would use her as an agent again. Our experience was very positive with her in buying and selling our home in Doylestown Pa.”
-Lona M., Doylestown, PA
"Mary Lou Erk is so professional that I was surprised and pleased to meet her and work with her.
She helped me to buy a Doylestown townhouse in 2001. I was extremely demanding about what I wanted to buy and where. She patiently drove me all over looking at property after property, never pushing, always listening and encouraging me to make the best choice for my family.
In 2008, Mary Lou helped me sell that same townhouse at a very large profit by showing the improvements I had made with tremendous enthusiasm and knowledge. At every step she was the lovely person and consummate professional the I know and respect.
In 2010, I trusted Mary Lou to help me buy my current house in Bucks County while I was actually living in CA! She did the closing and all the paperwork long distance! Even though I had a very limited budget at that time, she found me a lovely home with a fantastic full front porch in a super clean area with fabulous trees to look at every day.
I have rarely met such a superb professional as Mary Lou. Anyone who needs great real estate services and doesn't mind learning a lot and spending time with a brilliant, kind, and cheerful person, should definitely call Mary Lou. She takes all the worry and stress out of the real estate process.
I say, "Work with Erk“!”
-Edith W., Bucks County, PA

She is very knowledgeable about the Bucks county market and is very honest in her opinions and direction. She works hard at finding what you are looking for or in marketing your home for the highest value. She is very kind and easy to work with. It was great dealing with her. I highly recommend her as your next real estate agent."

Her motto (Work with Erk) is very true to her nature. She will work with you to make sure you are satisfied. By the way, she also works on relocations and her reputation with businesses is quite good in this area also."
-Jay S., Doylestown, PA
"Mary Lou really knows her stuff! So much so we've used her twice! She is amazing at creating a plan to sell your home and takes a lot of the anxiety out of buying the new one with close guidance every step of the way!"
-Laura P., Warwick, PA
“My husband and I were extremely pleased with our experience working with Mary Lou. Mary Lou was recommended to us by a friend who said “Mary Lou is one of the hardest working realtors I know and I know quite a few.” From the first day we met until our 2nd closing – we sold and bought – Mary Lou was professional, knowledgeable, patient and upbeat.
She walked us through each step of the process of selling our house, which was at times very frustrating. Mary Lou always came up with new ideas and ways to market our property and kept things moving. Mary Lou managed to talk me off the ledge a number of times when I was at my wit’s end with it all!
When searching for our next home, she was never pushy and would point out the positive things about each house and also the negatives. That was one of the main reasons we trusted her so much; we could tell she was being straight with us. She seemed to understand what we were looking for and, in the end, found us a house we would never have looked at on our own.
Our selling and buying goals were accomplished and I am so glad we chose Mary Lou to be our realtor. I would absolutely recommend Mary Lou to anyone looking to sell and/or buy a home. She clearly enjoys what she does and that is evident in her professionalism.”
-Anne H., Chalfont, PA
“Mary Lou’s expertise, understanding, compassion and patience over the months have been the foundation for the whole process. As we both knew, the “right one” came along, and Mary Lou made it all work out.”
-N.C., Doylestown, PA
“Unbelievable experience. Professional, knowledgeable, and empathetic to our situation. Nothing but the highest praise!”
-Ross A., Chalfont, PA
“Mary Lou Erk is the consummate real estate professional! Very knowledgeable, VERY accessible, and a great person. She has sold several homes in our former neighborhood and knows all of the central Bucks County markets so well. She guided us through a major renovation so we did exactly what we need to do to sell our home extremely quickly. When we had some glitches with the home inspection she worked diligently to resolve them. We could not have been more pleased. We will definitely work with Mary Lou again when we buy our next home.”
-Bob & Kay Kinney, Doylestown, PA
“Mary Lou provided us with excellent service, frequent communication, professionalism, honesty, integrity and dependability throughout the process of selling our home, all while treating us is in a thoughtful and courteous manner. Her assistance and invaluable advice was greatly appreciated. We feel that the selection of Mary Lou as our realtor, with the support of the Coldwell Banker team, was instrumental in the successful sale of our home. We would be pleased to recommend Mary Lou to anyone. Job well done!”
-Dennis & Karen Zak, Doylestown, PA
Mary Lou and my family have a bit of history as she was the seller who sold us the property in the past. And we felt her hands on approach and the way she kept us at ease through the process was crucial. She has been everything and then some to our family in helping us."
