Mary and Michael had helped sell our home in Yorba Linda, which was a very emotional time for me. Mary's professionalism, knowledge, and dedication made the process fast, easy and took a huge weight off my shoulders. Mary and her team took care of everything: well-calculated home listing price, home staging with Pam, and a smooth escrow process. They handled everything from beginning to end. I never had a problem getting my questions or concerns answered and always received updates as the process was moving forward. I cannot recommend Mary and her team enough and would definitely use her again to purchase or sell a home.
The Bremer Family
We were lucky to have not just one, but two great teams working together to sell our home. Mary and Michael Fry and their incredible team of consummate professionals attended to every detail of preparation, pricing, photography, staging, promotion, and the multitude of details necessary to find the right buyer. They also worked seamlessly with The Geronsins and together were extremely responsive to all of our requests. We felt like we were their singular client. Gracious, caring, and knowledgeable—their savvy helped us through some challenging issues—we highly recommend the Fry Team!

Mary and Michael Fry are the most professional realtors that we’ve been fortunate to have numerous opportunities to work with. They always have our best interests in mind. My adult children have also used them with great results. We have referred them to friends that are always pleased! GO
Mary and Michael are seasoned real estate professionals. We have used their team many times. They are straight forward, knowledgeable and professional and HONEST! Strong in negotiation skills and excellent in follow-thru. A real pleasure to work with.
The Patel Family
We had the pleasure of working with Michael Fry when purchasing our home in Anaheim Hills. We were so fortunate to have Michael as our agent, especially since we were buying our first home. Michael went above and beyond to make us feel comfortable, explain every process in detail, and had a wide breadth of knowledge about the Anaheim Hills/Yorba Linda area. He always made himself available to answer any questions or worries we
The Daley Family
The Fry Team is the best! Michael and Mary Fry are true professionals. They worked tirelessly to sell our home in Anaheim, and they provided sound advice and guidance along the way. Even though we were anxious at times, they were always positive and supportive. You can count on Michael and Mary to go the extra yard and to do the little things, that will make your real estate transaction a successful experience. I will always use the Fry Team in any of my future real estate transactions and recommend them highly to any prospective buyers or sellers.
The Corbett Family
My wife and I were looking to upgrade to a bigger place and Michael of The Fry Team was as excited to help us as we were to look at potential purchases. From the first time we spoke with Michael about buying a home, he was ready to help and provide us with any and all information we would need. Luckily enough, for us, the search was not very long. Once we found the home we would eventually buy, Michael got the ball rolling with the sellers’ agent. Michael was very knowledgeable about the area and the market and made us feel comfortable and confident in our purchase. We highly recommend Michael and The Fry Team and will use them again in the future.
The Patel Family
Dear Michael, We wanted to express our gratitude for your guidance throughout this entire process. We feel so lucky to have gone through the process of buying our very first home with you! Your patience, calmness and wonderful sense of humor made this so much more enjoyable for us. We truly felt that you cared about us and as a result, we knew we were in good hands. THANK YOU again, and we will be sure to refer you tour family & friends.
My wife and I have used Michael and Mary Fry for 3 real estate transactions in the past 3 years and will use them for every transaction going forward. Their professionalism, knowledge of the market and most importantly caring for their clients best interest will keep us coming back. During these life-changing decisions and transactions, Michael and Mary always made themselves available for even the most trivial items or concerns. I will highly recommend The Fry Team to anyone who needs assistance with buying or selling
The Atwood Family
Michael Fry represented us in the purchase of our home in Yorba Linda. During our initial meeting, we were very impressed with his professional approach. Michael did his due diligence and with his guidance, we made an offer which was accepted by the sellers. We thought the purchase would be simple and straight forward, unfortunately, after a few weeks in escrow, the sellers decided they did not want to sell their home – although they were in contract. Michael worked with the seller’s agent in an effort to move the sale along. Eventually, we had to hire a real estate attorney who Michael recommended, and this lead to a mediation service where the judge ruled in our favor. Over five months later the seller’s agreed to the original terms of the real estate contract. Throughout the ordeal, Michael Fry worked tirelessly for us, including being present during mediation. During this time, we got to know his true character. He was our advocate. We cannot fully express our gratitude to him and his staff for their hard work on our behalf. Ours was a complex sale, that spanned nine months. Throughout the entire time, Michael was a steady guide, with untold patience to coordinate the countless details of contract changes. His knowledge of the process eased our anxiety and to use a cliché, we knew we were in good hands. Our sincere thanks to Michael, we highly recommend him.
The Mitchell Family
MARY FRY IS THE BEST! KIM AND MYSELF HAVE OVER 70 YEARS IN THE ORANGE COUNTY REAL ESTATE INDUSTRY AND IT DOSEN'T GET ANY BETTER THAN MARY FRY AND HER TEAM. SHE HAS HANDLED OUR PURCHASE, SALES AND RENTALS FOR OVER 10 YEARS WITHOUT A SNAG!! MARY WILL SOMETIMES QUESTION YOUR DIRECTION AND KEEP ON "CHARGING AHEAD"!
To prospective sellers: stop shopping for a realtor and hire Mary Fry. Mary created a Comparative Market Analysis that was comprehensive, colorful, clear, concise and professional. 15 comparable properties were described in great detail along with sold and active listings and sold property analysis. This information was critical and accurate to arrive at a realistic sale figure. Too low and you're losing money; too high and you're stuck with an unsold property. Mary's analysis was right on target. The marketing of my property was the best I've seen: the photography, including aerial drone shots, was outstanding, and the property was extensively advertised domestically and internationally. I was regularly apprised of the number of views per web page, and I rarely made a telephone call because Mary kept me informed from the beginning. Have you ever called someone and you can tell from the get-go that this person doesn't have enough time for you? That is not Mary. She was always informative, patient and left it up to me when the call should end. That's how a professional does it. During the entire transaction, Mary made it clear that her fiduciary responsibility was to me and to ethically and legally negotiate the labyrinth of California real estate laws and requirements. Serious sellers: listen up and stop burning up the internet. Contact Mary Fry. You will regret it if you don't. If you list with Mary you will look back on your transaction, as I have done many times, and say to yourself, "This is one of the most important and best decisions I've made." Allow Mary to represent you.
The Allen Family
Mary and Michael assisted with the sale of my old home and the purchase of a new home. They could not have been more helpful in a stressful process. They were with me every step of the way and were quick to answer any questions I had. I would recommend Mary and Michael Fry to everyone I know to help them through any real estate transactions. They are good people!
The Zint Family
We had an excellent buying experience with Michael and his team. He was very patient with us and expertly guided us through a transaction that got tricky but ended with us buying a wonderful home. We thank and enthusiastically recommend Michael's team.
The White Family
Mary and the Fry team were beyond what we expected. Mary was not only professional yet she built that personal relationship with us so I knew she was the right choice. She has a wonderful team who each specialize and help make the whole experience less stressful. They help and suggest ideas to get your house and yard ready to make it more appealing. She was very patient and explained things multiple times since it was new to me. She goes above and beyond what any realtor would do. I would recommend Mary and her team a thousand times.
The McDonough Family
My wife and I just completed purchasing our first home, and it would not have been possible without the help of both Michael and Mary Fry. The process was seamless, and Mary was there every inch of the way. Mary was aware that this was our first home purchase, so she went above and beyond to walk us through step by step, and provide every single detail we needed to feel comfortable with our purchase process. I have heard so many stories about the difficulties of closing on a home, and after working with the Fry team, I can't even imagine how that is possible. They made the process so comforting and easy, and I will definitely be referring my business their way. Thanks again, Mary!
The Hou Family
Michael and Mary Fry have helped me to purchase and sell my home. My experience working with Fry team has always been a pleasure. They exceeded all of my expectations and are very professional and knowledgeable. I would like highly recommend that anybody looking to purchase/ sell a home contact the Fry Team.
The Walter Family
Mary and Michael Fry and their team performed beyond our expectations in the marketing of our home for sale in Yorba Linda. Their expertise in researching and pricing our home value and subsequent professionalism in all aspects of the sales transaction was unsurpassed. We would highly recommend them.
The Dreyer Family
From our first meeting during our broker review state to the closing of escrow, we felt The Fry Team was truly exceptional. The process of arriving at a sales price, stating the property, negotiating offers from buyers, and finalizing the sale was managed excellently by The Fry Team. The Frys are also really great people and a pleasure to work with.
The Brewer Family
This was our first home and Mary was amazing! Our credit union highly recommended her to us and we were not disappointed. There was no pressure and I really felt like she listened to what I told her we wanted and gave us great options. Our process went very smoothly and she was very quick to respond to any texts or emails that I sent and always answered any and all questions that I had. We were very nervous about buying a home and really did not know what to expect or what we were doing, and she was very reassuring and helped us every step of the way. She seemed so genuinely excited for us when our offer was accepted, it was as if we had known her for a long time and not just weeks. I cannot say enough how happy we were to have worked with Mary. We also met with her husband, Michael a few times towards the end of the process and he was just as nice and helpful as she was.
The White Family
Mary & Team … we wanted to thank you for all of your hard work in finding us our dream home! You went above and beyond & we are so grateful. You were all so hard-working with the most positive personalities, it made this experience feel so easy! Thank you …
My husband and I had the pleasure of working with Michael and Mary Fry (and their wonderful Team) back in December 2016 when we were purchasing our property in Anaheim. We couldn't have asked for a better agent than Michael to guide us through the purchase of our first home! Since we were first-time homebuyers, it was very important to us to find an agent we could trust and we could feel comfortable with. During our initial meeting with Michael, we instantly felt that we found the right person. Within only a few days of contacting Michael and Mary, we were scheduled for 10 house visits. My husband and I were pleased with how professional Michael was during our meeting: not only did he spend many hours with us driving to properties in the areas we had selected, and had impressive knowledge of the real estate market we were looking at, but also was very patient with answering all the questions we had regarding the home purchasing process (and we had quite a few each time). He is very personable and it is a delight talking to him on a myriad of subjects. One of the many things we appreciated about Michael was how he made himself available for us during various times of the day in order to accommodate our schedules. During our meetings with Michael, we never felt rushed. On a few occasions, he spent several hours with us to go over documentation or results of inspections and clarify step by step what various things meant and what were our options. Michael was always present during home inspections. He was a wonderful link between listing agents, escrow agents, our loan officer and us, making sure the communication was prompt and efficient. Even after the close of escrow, Michael followed up with us several times to make sure things were going well at our new home. Because of the great relationship we were able to build together, we feel that we can reach out to Michael and his Team for advice any time.
I would highly recommend Michael and the Fry Team to anyone looking to purchase or sell property in Northern Orange County. If you are looking for professionals with many years of experience who can make the home buying process worry-free and truly care about your satisfaction, definitely reach out to the Fry Team. I know we will next time we are looking to buy or sell. Our first experience with buying a house was less stressful and more fun than what we initially imagined, thanks to the Fry Team!
Michael and his team were great in every aspect of the home buying process. Michael was responsive at any time of the day and he always made sure that he was on top of things in spite of his busy schedule. The home buying process involved working with multiple seller parties due to the relocation company but Michael made the process as smooth as possible even though it took more than a few attempts to obtain timely responses from sellers agent. He was always due-diligent and detail-oriented to keep things moving along. He always went above and beyond to make sure we were comfortable with the process. Thanks to Michael and his team our home buying process was a breeze.
The Parikh Family
As first-time home buyers, my wife and I had a great experience with Michael and his team. He was very patient in showing us homes and answering all of our questions. We never felt pressured and he educated us about the entire process of home buying. Additionally, when it came time to negotiate, he did a great job in working with all parties involved. Michael is one of the most sincere people I know and would definitely trust him again in any type of real estate process. I have recommended him to all of my friends who want to buy a home.
The Rudometkin Family
We love our home of 39 years located in Yorba Linda, but we were looking for a change. We discussed with Mary the type and style of home in the immediate area that would make us want to pack up and move. Mary found it for us and then worked with us through the buying process, which was seamless and well negotiated. Based on our very positive experience with the Fry Team, we will be using them to sell our home. We're looking forward to working with them from the sellers' side. Thank you Fry Team.
The Tragos Family
The Fry Team helped us purchase a house on the Yorba Linda golf course. They were extremely professional and highly experienced which helped immensely in the negotiation. They were with us every step of the way through the closing. Mary and Michael do a great job and have a highly professional staff. They also then helped sell our house which had to be done quickly due to the timing of the new purchase. They and their team helped stage our house for potential buyers. Our house sold in less than a week at a great price. We ran into some issues at closing that could have derailed our sale and purchase. Mary was on top of it every step of the way and even came up with an idea to solve the problem then negotiated with everyone necessary to make it happen. We cannot say enough about the great job the Fry Team did both in helping us purchase and sell our home. We would recommend them highly to anyone wanting to buy or sell their home.
I would like to say that Michael and Mary are by far the most professional, knowledgable and honest realtors that I have ever worked with. I had the pleasure of working with them on purchasing an investment property. There were many issues that came up during the escrow process but Michael and Mary handled everything so seamlessly, and any concerns that I had were eliminated. I am a mortgage lender and I have many dealings with other real estate agents and I can honestly and objectively state that they are the best real estate agents that I have ever come across in my 32 years in the mortgage industry. You never have to worry if they are doing what is in your best interests. You can trust them and go to sleep at night. Very rare to find in this day and age. I would highly recommend Michael and Mary without hesitation.
Carissa & Nicholas Casolari
The Fry Team ... Thank you so much for your hard work and dedication to get us into our dream home. We greatly appreciate everything you all did for us.
CU Realty Home Advantage
Mary and Michael ... You both are truly a large part of our success in 2014, particularly in California. Member Services has agreed throughout the year; you’ve been the model agent team which is why I and we DO always think of you 1st when making a CA referral in your service range. From a Member Services perspective, it’s a pleasure referring agents who we don’t have to chase for confirmation of receipt on new referrals, updates on existing referrals and closing paperwork. That in itself is a gift making all our jobs easier. Then the extra added bonus is simply the fact that you are true professionals and great at what you do! I recall one member’s comment while reviewing lists of agents in their selling area, you being one of them, ‘Oh we know the Frys as we see their signs all over the neighborhood’! I was not a bit surprised as I agreed, ‘Yes, the Frys are great and come highly recommended through our network’.
Dan and Kristen
Not only did you get us into the house of our dreams in Bryant Ranch, you were there to help us move on to the next adventure of our life. We are grateful for all that you and your team, Pam and Michael, did to prepare our home for sale in an extremely tough market. We were amazed that you found a solid buyer and we had a contract in less than six weeks. That fact that the final price exceeded the comps by more than $10 a square foot exceeded all reasonable expectations.
[The Fry Team]... guided me through the entire process, from loan prequalification to searching for houses, making the offer and closing the deal. I credit the whole Fry Team with a smooth, stress-free home-selling and home-buying experience. Mary's insight into what I was looking for was excellent.
Dik and Irene Jones
We are very pleased by both Mary and Michael Fry. Both were very competent.
Hans and Kersten Thedens
Mary was very creative in finding the right offer that made the deal happen. She makes you feel like you are the only client and she has all the time in the world for you. Mary, continue what you are doing, the way you do it!
Jenny & Humberto Ugarte
Today is the second month anniversary of the ultimate purchase of our home.
Jerome and Iliana Tsai
We were first-time homebuyers and working with the Fry Team was the best decision we made. They were incredibly professional and walked us through the entire process with our best interest at heart. We are now in our "dream home" and could not be more grateful. Thank you for all of your help throughout the process.
Jim and Teri MacMaster
My wife Teri and I have known Mary and Michael Fry since 1999. They have helped us to find rentals and assisted us with the purchase and sales of several homes over this period. They are more like friends than agents to us. They always acted in our best interest and handled our negotiations with extreme professionalism. In over 50 years of buying and selling homes all over the country, we have never met any single agent that worked so hard to help us. When you trust Mary and Michael with your needs you really get a wonderful team to work with. The purest form of flattery is to recommend them to friends and co-workers and we have done that several times. We would be happy to speak with you regarding the personalized service they provide.
John and Julia Kim
Special gratitude goes to you for holding our hands through this entire process. We really appreciate all the extra time you spent going over all the details with us and looking out for our best interests. You and Adam are so much fun to spend time with and although we're super happy that we closed escrow, we're also going to miss seeing you and Adam on a regular basis haha. You and your team are wonderful and we look forward to our future work together! It probably won't be for a while though..seeing how we have to save money for the basketball court and outdoor fireplace ... and Julia wants an outdoor daybed on the patio too. =)
Working as a courier for an escrow company in Yorba Linda years ago, I remember always delivering documents to the Fry Team. It seemed as though they were very busy and always were selling and listing a lot of Real Estate. When ready to sell my condo in Orange three years after my husband passed away, they were who came to mind immediately.
Their expertise and professionalism were apparent from our first meeting. After I made the decision to sell my home, Mary, Michael and Pam walked me thru the process every step of the way, making my hard decision to sell a lot easier. Mary's constant contact with me made me feel like I was her only client. They were able to sell my home in a short period of time. I am very grateful to Mary, she is now considered a friend. Should I decide to purchase a new home, The Fry Team is who I will call immediately.
I highly recommend the Fry Team of professionals. We were fully pleased and satisfied with the excellent communication skills, responsiveness, knowledge of all that is involved in selling a home, and attention to detail demonstrated by both Mary and Michael Fry. If I were buying or selling in the Orange County area again I would definitely ask Mary and Michael Fry to be my agent.
Mary Fry helped me find and purchase my first and PERFECT condo! After looking since 2011, I was distraught and frustrated. I found Mary and she is an ANGEL! She understood my needs and delivered everything, YES I DO MEAN EVERYTHING, on my list! Mary knows all of Orange County and was able to show me many different properties that would meet my needs until I found the perfect one for me. She kept me informed during the process and I always knew what was happening or what document that needed to be completed. I would use Mary again and again because
Mary Fry plies her trade with class, respect, hard work, experience and the positive attitude needed in this business. Michael and Mary are a pleasure to work with.
Kevin and Joan Elsen
Mary Fry provided excellent advice and help regarding setting up and keeping home up for sale. Pam did a wonderful job of staging! We are now closing escrow on our new home in Canyon Lake. I did not use a Realtor on my end to purchase the home and my lender pretty much held my hand the whole way. I was buying from investors and it was an experience! It truly made me appreciate once again the EXCELLENT SERVICE you provided during the sale of our Yorba Linda home. From start to finish you were able to explain every detail of the transaction. I was unable to find a Realtor here who lived up to the high expectations that I had from working with you.
Mary & Michael Fry have a great knowledge of the North Orange County housing market. I have dealt with them for over 15 years and they are very professional, trusting and will work at having a complete understanding of your needs to either find or sell you a home.
I have personally used them to sell two of my homes, purchase another home and have had my children use them to find homes in Orange County too. I highly recommend their services.
The Fry Team helped me buy my first home and what an experience it was! When we first started looking, we weren't sure what price range we wanted and Mary was willing to show us homes in all the different ranges so we could make a solid decision (even showing us property on Fathers Day!). She was also very honest with us about the value of the homes and what it would cost to fix certain places etc. We made offers on 3 properties. When it came to the third one, we asked their advice on how low to start and what to come up to and their instructions got our offer accepted! Escrow took MUCH longer than planned as did the loan process and we were ready to give up. The Frys stayed positive the whole time, which gave us the energy to keep going! They stayed calm and professional through the entire transaction - when the first loan was denied and we had to move to another bank to keep the process moving forward, and when all I wanted to do was clean my hands of it all, they hung in there and made me feel we had a chance! And they were right to do so!
When I got the call that they had the keys, I cried. Even after the transaction was complete, they still stay in touch with us, sending us beautiful mailing labels with our new address, a rug for our home, an orchid! We even had a couple problems with window replacement and plumbing and they were incredibly helpful in providing us advice and the right people to contact to get everything fixed. I used a painter they recommended and he was awesome too! I love my new home and would recommend the Frys to any and everyone I know! They sold our neighbors' house just after this as well ... and at a great price!
Lori and Paul
Mary provided us with exactly what we needed in order to a decision on property in Yorba Linda. Our experience with Mary started with her answering her phone. I know that may not seem noteworthy, but it is refreshing that she has the respect for her clients to not have to deal with voice mail. I had phoned 5 Yorba Linda realtors who did not answer and the call went to voicemail.
I made a request for Comparative Market Analysis. She explained what she would do when she would do and when she would get back to me. Mary exceeded the expectations and got me the information on the same day. There were no excuses or delays. We highly recommend Mary and will utilize her for any future real estate needs in the Yorba Linda area.
Maggie and Jeremy MoyerThank you for your hard work and professionalism in selling our house. You are an amazing realtor and we completely understand why you are so successful. We closed escrow on Castlerock yesterday. Now we begin lots of construction to make the house our own. We really appreciate you looking for a house for us, too. Thank you!
Mark and Jean Attaway - BUYER
Mary was very easy to talk with and never pushy. We both enjoyed working with both Mary and Michael. No challenges whatsoever!
Mark and Jean Attaway - SELLER
Mary and Michael Fry were both very professional and helpful with the sale of our home. It was a pleasure working with them both.
I saw Mary Fry working for a friend in a previous sale, so I chose her. I would do so again without a moment's hesitation. She is great!
Renee and Jon
"We are very happy... We will most definitely contact you for any of our future needs. The service you provide was excellent and it was a pleasure working with you. Thanks for everything, Mary"
I am eagerly writing this review on the day that I took possession of my new home! Mary Fry is the absolute best realtor! She exceeded all of my expectations all the while maintaining the most personal and professional relationship. My home buying journey started years back and while it has taken years to get to this place, I have never felt abandoned or that my home buying dream was not reachable. Mary was a constant source of resources and positive encouragement. During this time, I began a personal battle with breast cancer. Mary stuck by me sending me meals and encouraging me to never lose sight on my home buying dream...She would often say, "as soon as you are ready and healthy we will find you your home." Well, that day came and I found my home. I went looking for a realtor and met a friend for life. Mary consistently went over and above to ensure that I was well looked after in this endeavor to purchase my home. Working with Mary is like adding a new member to your family. Thank you for letting me share my experience.
The Alder Family
The Fry Team should always be your choice when buying or selling a home!
My husband and I have partnered with them to sell our home and buy the property of our dreams. They are patient, understand the market, do an outstanding job of preparing market assessments, price the home to
Additionally, I engaged their services to sell my 90-year-old Father's home in Cerritos last year. We discussed what needed to be done to prepare the house for sale, we priced it at a level to entice lots of offers. The result was 17 offers in 3 days, counter offers, and we ended up selling the home for $55,000 more than list price!
When buying or selling your home, it is clear in my mind that the Fry Team should be your choice of real estate professionals!
The Beskin Family
AS A BUYER: Mary Fry went beyond the call of duty, allowing us multiple visits to the property during escrow.
AS A SELLER: Mary Fry understood our needs, yet also presented buyer's motivation and thought process. She helped us manage our expectations.
The Casler Family
We have never had a more pleasurable experience than the one we had with Mary & Michael (and their associate Pam). They made the process of buying our home seamless. Everything was done with such professionalism & ease. Not once did we feel stressed out or overwhelmed; Michael & Mary just made it a fun and enjoyable experience. And they knew absolutely EVERYTHING about everything!!!! Their help did not stop once we got our keys, I still email them and ask them advice and questions on the area and for recommendations on gardeners, etc . . . now I consider them friends and we will use them for EVERY purchase from here on out! Amazing people. Oh and truly wonderful with our girls too!!!
Lindsay and I want to say thank you for assisting with the purchase of our first home. We felt that you were subject matter experts in your field and we could rely on you to guide us through all of this. Buying a home is extremely stressful, but we had Adam. Adam was professional, outgoing, and one of the most approachable people we have ever worked with. He answered all of our questions and never made us feel like we weren’t in control. We want to thank Adam and the Fry Team for all you have done for us!
The Chacon Family
With Mary Fry on my side, I felt I was part of a winning team!
The Chapman Family
Mary Fry went above and beyond to complete this sale!! She was persistent and determined to pursue this deal to the end in a challenging environment. I would recommend her to a buyer or a seller after our positive experience. We were across the country and she kept us informed and responded in a timely and professional manner. We write this review with complete satisfaction with the service she provided.
The Clineff Family
I worked with Mary and Michael on the sale of my Yorba Linda property in 2014. Their personal knowledge of the local real estate market combined with their professionalism, attention to details and responsiveness to what needed to be done resulted in a very successful sale. Their staging of the property for photographs presented the house beautifully. They knew how to price the property appropriately and we had three offers within the first week. I would highly recommend them for sellers and buyers alike.
The Cutshall Family
Thank you for such a great job representing Jennifer and me in the recent sale of our home in Yorba Linda, and subsequent purchase of our new house. I sincerely appreciated how responsive you, Michael, and Pam were throughout the entire process. It was easy to reach you via phone or email, and if we missed each other, I always received a call back in timely fashion. Buying and selling a house is a stressful time and your calm, experienced, and sound advice made the process as smooth as possible.
The Dominguez Family
The Fry team was excellent. We worked with Mary the most. Her hard work was outstanding. She was patient with my wife and me through the whole process of selling our home and finding us a new home. The whole team worked great on our behalf. We appreciate everything they did for us. We would recommend them and would use the Fry team again in a heartbeat.
The Ehrman Family
Everything from day one was done professionally, accurately and with their grace and charm. The sale went smoothly, expertly and efficiently. They were true to their word and made every effort to secure the right buyer. We were very happy with our outcome. Never a complaint.
The Fitkin Family
The Flake Family
Mary Fry was very professional and yet personable and friendly. She knows the area very well, Mary is wonderful!
The Foreman Family
I have known Mary and Michael Fry for many years while volunteering for a local charity. So, I knew that when It came time to sell my home of nearly 40 years, they would be the right team to help me navigate and guide me through the selling and buying process. I found out right away that they provide the great art of patience and provide immediate response to questions. Pam and Allyson are super efficient office assistants and keep all the details in order and on schedule.
When it came time for me to find a new home, Mary and Michael went out of their way to accompany me to a location outside the County. The sellers' agent was unresponsive to our offer and Mary followed up with his superior to report his unprofessionalism. Because I really wanted a home in this development and there was no inventory, Mary crafted a letter and sent it to all the homeowners explaining she had an interested buyer. I thought there was no way this solicitation would work. But to my surprise, we received a response and it turned out to be the best location in the area and in superior condition. We had a quick escrow and I am thrilled to be in my dream home.
So if you are planning to sell or buy a home, I wholeheartedly endorse the Fry Team to guide you through the complicated and sometimes daunting experience. You can count on them to be knowledgeable, professional, personable, attentive to details, and efficient. I cannot say enough nice things and how appreciative I am of the whole Fry Team.
The Goel Family
Michael, you have always demonstrated a commitment to building relationships with your clients. When we're ready to look for our next home it's a no-brainer that we'll be coming straight to you. We appreciate your patience in educating us during the purchase of our first home, and will not hesitate to recommend you to anyone we know who is looking for something in the area.
The Halpern Family
THANK YOU all so much. While amazingly short, this process has been managed so professionally. Luana and I are always impressed with professionalism in any arrangement and you have cleared that bar with room to spare. The speed at which you engaged, the pricing, the staging, the photographs, the listing, the communication, etc. were exactly what we would like to expect (and have failed to find in the past) of our agents. I'm confident that as we move through the second half of this process that you will help us get through it as smoothly as possible.
The Halpern Family
We bought our first home in Yorba Linda through Mary and Michael. 15 years later, we just sold that same house with Mary and Michael. There's a reason we came back to them after all that time.
We've bought and sold a number of homes and properties in areas of CA and TX. Without a doubt, the Fry
When I say "knowledgable" I am not talking about who they know or running a few comps from the computer; I'm talking about that the team is aware of not only the transactions that are closing but the transactions that are ongoing and how they pertain to your particular sale or purchase. They were able to price our property appropriately (above what we thought it would go for) and negotiate the final deal smoothly and quickly because they were able to provide information and context. They were able to explain their reasoning to both us and the buyers at each step of the way. Both sides felt it was a fair deal and were happy with the outcome. In less than 7 days from listing, we had multiple offers, selected the most appropriate buyers, negotiated the deal and opened escrow. And closed right on time, too, even with a small out-of-state community bank, thanks to help from the Frys.
On a specific note, we ran into some medical issues during the time of the sale that made it difficult for us to get the property ready and to be available during the sale and escrow process. The Fry Team made themselves available to help in ways "above and beyond" what we would (or could) expect from staging to closing, whether that was to physically help with the staging or to be at the property in our stead to deal with contractors such as plumbers and exterminators. From prior experience, I am 100% positive that our transaction would not have gone nearly as smoothly (or possibly at all) if it had not been for their help.
The Johnson Family
Having worked in the same office with Mary, Michael and Pam previously we knew the work ethic of this team. We also knew the professional standards they hold for themselves. Thus, with confidence and knowledge, we listed our home with them and two days later left for a 21-day vacation to Asia. 22 days later we returned, the home had received 5 offers, went into pending sale and closed escrow the day prior to our arrival home....all without a flaw!
Now I ask you, wouldn't you like that to happen to you? Can't say enough good things about this team of professionals. They truly set the bar high!
Mary and Michael Fry did everything right! We had FOUR offers within the first TWO days after listing! Mary is the best, Michael too!
Mary Fry is tremendous! We didn't think we would ever find an agent we liked more than the one we have used for 18 years in Westchester - then we met Mary. We met her at an open house and felt she was a good fit for us.
The Lo Family
Michael helped my family purchase a beautiful condo in Garden Grove. I have met several agents, but Michael Fry has been the absolute best. He was very warm and welcoming, which made us feel very comfortable working with him. He was extremely patient and provided everything we asked for. It is hard to find agents that you can trust, but this was not a problem with Michael. He is someone you can truly count on to find the home of your dreams. I would highly recommend Mary and Michael Fry, they are a great team. For my next house purchase, they will be the first people I go to.
The Martinez Family
I love everyone at the Fry team! Michael, Adam
The Muir/Welmas Family
Mary Fry was extremely helpful, knowledgeable, and patient. She always had a positive attitude and instilled confidence in us.
The Rivera Family
Michael Fry was awesome! He was very helpful and patient. He works for us with an open heart. He took care of every detail that my family needed. I highly recommend the Fry Team.
What can we say? You are the best! Throughout this whole, frustrating process, none of you strayed from staying positive and focused, you made this possible for us! We will forever be grateful! Thank you for helping our dreams become reality!
The Schmidt Family
Buying or selling a home can be fraught with stress, tension, emotional ups and downs, and the unknown. For many years, my wife and I had entertained the idea of selling our home in Fullerton, where we lived for 34 years. It had become too big for our "empty nest" needs, but it had many emotional memories attached: our first home, where our kids grew up, good neighbors, etc. So, for many years, I loathed the idea of selling and moving. But when we finally made the decision, we quickly decided on the Fry Team, because extended family members had had a good experience with them in the past (they helped my brother find a home in Brea, and they consulted on the sale of a family beach condo in 2013).
We sat down with Mary and Michael and went through the whole process. In short, they guided, gave counsel, did the research, navigated all the waters, essentially "holding our hand" through the entire journey. Pam in their office was also incredibly helpful in staging our home for photographs, scheduling, answering questions, and many other matters as well.
Much to my surprise, selling our home was actually a very enjoyable experience. It was an adventure! And it greatly improved our debt situation, our savings, and allowed us to gain something very precious after eluding us for many years: peace of mind. The Fry Team was instrumental in helping this come about, and I not only highly recommend them, I feel indebted to them.
We are now happily renting a duplex, something more suited to our needs and stage of life.
One more epilogue: just this month, my father decided to sell his large home in Yorba Linda after living there for 53 years. Another potentially emotional move. Who do you think we called? Fry Team. It sold and entered escrow within only two weeks after the decision by my dad, for the asking price. Clean and simple. We couldn't be happier.
The Sheldon Family
We enjoyed working with Mary, Michael and Pam so much—it was just delightful, and all three of you are so attentive to detail and so willing to find solutions and take care of whatever comes up!! It truly was a joy to have the Fry Team help us with the sale of our parents’ home.
The Stoffer/Bushey Family
My husband and I were very lucky to stumble upon the Fry Team. Knowing we had to find a home and move by April, we started our home search on the internet and came across a house Michael was representing. From this very first meeting, we knew right away Michael was the right person in helping us find our new home. He's knowledgeable, patient and kind. He helped make this very daunting process not so. We have been in our new home now for close to a month and every time we've needed advice or questions answered, he has been more than happy to help us out in any way possible. In short...The Fry Team has been absolutely wonderful.
Excellent effort on our behalf by the FRY TEAM - always accessible - we felt they went beyond their job to sell our house and close the sale.
The Surratt Family
You two have been in a word ... ideal! We could not have asked for better representation throughout the Amelia deal, and yet, even as I use the word "representation" it seems inadequate, for two people who we so genuinely consider friends. Through every stage of this magnificent change in our lives, you have remained so patient with us, so loyal, staying with us in our three-year struggle to escape from our apartment. We have this beautiful home, this idyllic neighborhood for our son across from a gigantic park due almost entirely to your efforts. When we got distracted, your minds remained steadfast. When we became frantic and overwhelmed, you remained soothing and calm. "Presence" is a word I've come to respect in my spiritual journey, and my mentor, Eckhart Tolle, talks about the difference between people who are "present" in their work as opposed to those who are simply role-playing. You two manifested his description of "presence" to me in our every conversation. Always listening, always open, methodical in reaction, responding to the needs of the moment. Endearing agents with such wholehearted devotion are so rare. "Advocate" is a better word than agent. I've heard "friend" once defined as "someone who allows you to feel like a prisoner who has been set free." I don't mean to be overly dramatic, but that is how we feel in your presence. You have earned our trust for a lifetime. We can understand how FRY TEAM has the success it does. It wasn't luck, it was EARNED by grateful clients like ourselves who will jump at the chance to refer you to anyone and everyone looking to buy or sell in this area. When people ask "do you know of a good agent?" we will say, "You don't need an agent, you need an advocate. You need Michael and Mary Fry".
The Williams Family
Michael and Mary Fry helped us find a home for our son. They had a lot of patience with us and I think showed us just about every home in our range! They definitely know our area and made the whole process of paperwork very easy for us. Thank you so much! David & Teri
The Holmes Family
Michael Fry became more than just an Agent to us. We valued all of the advice and felt as though he cared about us, not just about the sell. We feel very blessed that The Frys found us, and offered a hand in our home finding adventure. In our opinion, finding your first home (or any home) is a very intimate and personal experience. We couldn’t have asked for anyone better to guide us along the way! Both Michael and Mary extended their warmth and hospitality and offered the highest professionalism at the same time. As long as they’re around, we’ll use them for all of our real estate needs … and will be recommending them to everyone we know.
The Wrench Family
Mary Fry was always very supportive and knowledgeable. She did everything possible to make the deal happen.
Pete & Katy
Mary Fry cannot possibly be more thorough and professional AND personally involved! A true gem of a person.
Mrs. B. Carlson
Mary Fry gave good advice on pricing the property and in selling price. She also provided psychological support. Mary pursued every step of the selling process.
KJ and Irene
Mary Fry has gone above and beyond our expectations and is extremely knowledgeable in the real estate business. She is caring and thoughtful, detail-oriented and professional.
The Van Dyke Family
We are very thankful to have you, Mary as our agent. Recognizing how super picky and Type A we are, you just rose to the occasion and provided such wonderful service, not to mention having made our boys feel so comfortable around you. Thank you for being so wonderful and patient throughout this process. Your professionalism and warmth made this home finding experience a wonderful stress-free experience.
The Clark Family
Thank you for the superior job you did selling our home, and helping us navigate a very complex purchase on our new estate. Your professionalism and detailed follow-through made a very positive experience for my husband. We will use you for all our future real estate transactions and have highly recommended you to our friends.
I am eagerly writing this review on the day that I took possession of my new home! Mary Fry is the absolute best realtor! She exceeded all of my expectations all the while maintaining the most personal and professional relationship. My home buying journey started years back and while it has taken years to get to this place, I have never felt abandoned or that my home buying dream was not reachable. Mary was a constant source of resources and positive encouragement. During this time, I began a personal battle with breast cancer. Mary stuck by me sending me meals and encouraging me to never lose sight on my home buying dream ... She would often say, "as soon as you are ready and healthy we will find you your home." Well, that day came and I found my home. I went looking for a realtor and met a friend for life. Mary consistently went over and above to ensure that I was well looked after in this endeavor to purchase my home. Working with Mary is like adding a new member to your family. Thank you for letting me share my experience.
My wife and I were aided by Mary Fry and Adam Snyder. Both were excellent and made the process of buying our first home as fun and easy as it should be, despite the massive amount of stress in our day-to-day lives otherwise. They both were great at identifying properties and selecting the ones that met our criteria. More importantly, they were able to discern what did and did not matter to us in a home that we perhaps couldn't quite quantify or state. I didn't notice it at first, but as the process went on, more and more of the properties we saw were closer and closer to ideal.
Then we found the one.
On local knowledge, they were both able to share information on
On process, they were both experts at explaining what stage of the process we were in, and what the significance of that stage was.
On responsiveness, I don't think we ever waited more than a few moments for a response. When we were unable to respond, they waited diligently and checked in without being overbearing.
On negotiation skills,
I would definitely recommend the Fry
The Kim Family
My husband and I have been looking for the ideal home for our family and thought that it would take years to find. We wanted a private home with space for our children to run around on and enough land to eventually build my parents a small home to live in. While searching through Zillow I came upon a home for sale in Yorba Linda. After reading the description and looking at the pictures, I knew this was the home we had been searching for. When we made the appointment to see the home, we immediately fell in love with the home and property. Michael represented us and was always so professional, patient and helpful. We knew we could trust him to do his best in our interest. We were overjoyed to find out our offer had been accepted. Afterward, we had the pleasure of meeting Mary and we really got to see what a great team Mary and Michael are. They are just so caring, it's obvious they know what they're doing and they are both knowledgeable about the area. We have been blessed to work with them.
The Miller Family
We owned our home for 38 years in Yorba Linda. We contacted Mary Fry to assist us with the sale because we knew she was a long-time resident and realtor. We were immediately impressed with her professional approach and knowledge of the local market. The entire team became engaged as well and were all impressive. Our house price was appropriate and was sold very quickly. We highly recommend Mary and Michael (and team) and plan to recommend them to our friends and family for their real estate needs.
Adam: we would never have been able to do this without your help. I know time is valuable and you were generous with yours. I have to admit that our constraints limited the market in this area, I was beginning to think we were not going to find a house. With your help, you made it happen. Thank you very much. I would recommend you to my friend. Who knows, after Rachel is out of high school, Yorba Linda.
So professional and easy to work with.
The Horn FamilyI've been working with Mary and Michael Fry and their team for many years and highly recommend them. I have always had a good experience whether purchasing, selling, or leasing a property. The team is very professional, attentive to detail, and really goes the extra mile to make things go smoothly and minimize the work I need to do to complete the process.
The Bussey Family
Adam of the Fry Team performed an excellent job. My wife and I had very limited boundaries for the location we were looking for. We knew it would be challenging, but Adam was persistent and gracious with his time. In the end, the Fry Team was able to find a home within the boundaries we were looking for and amenities that my family now call home. Thank you!
The Kudlo Family
My experience working with Mary, Michael
The Talley Family
Both Michael and Mary Fry are to be commended for their work in Yorba Linda and surrounding areas. They are eager to work with buyers to find that certain house that meets their expectations and can easily accommodate their wishes and schedules. Having exhausted the market for almost 12 months, I commend them for their efforts and attention to always making the time and effort to bring
I had always been wary of the real estate industry as my experience in the past has been unfortunate, leading me to be somewhat jaded. Then came Michael and Mary Fry who first helped me locate and rent a home and then 6 years later, helped me buy one. I have always found them ethical, honest and absolutely focused on Customer satisfaction. I cannot recommend them more highly in terms of their knowledge and the confidence that it instills, as one goes through the complexities of home purchase
There is no other realtor that demonstrates more the importance of client relationships. Mary and Michael Fry are a team of exceptional professionals who are deeply dedicated to the highest level of customer service and satisfaction. Their knowledge of the market and detail-oriented approach to selling your home creates a comfortable selling and buying experience. They are more than just realtors, they become friends who truly cherish the relationships they build.
The Sheer Family
We have had the pleasure of working with the Fry Team on three separate transactions. Our first purchase was when we relocated from the midwest. Michael was so kind, patient, pleasant, and knowledgable. We truly felt he sincerely cared about finding the right home for our family. Two years later when our needs changed, there was no question we would contact the Frys. Mary listed and sold our home in record time. She is amazing! She is diligent, professional and caring. The support staff is beyond compare. Pam and Allyson are detail-oriented, super responsive and just incredible. While many agents may also have experience, you will not find the "heart" that the Frys have.
The Tran Family
The Fry team is great. Experienced group. Answered all our questions. And we had a lot of them. Adam did a wonderful job and Mary was so energetic and happy all the time. Sabrina and I loved working with them. Would totally refer them to our friends.
The Surratt Family
Thanks so much, Mary! It's been five years, yes, but we still haven't forgotten how amazing your service was. You are our lifetime realtors and we always mention your name whenever anyone is looking to buy or sell. Tell Michael hi for us and hopefully, we'll be moving to Yorba Linda in the next few years. We'll be seeking you out again! We accept no substitute for the Fry team!
The Scanlon Family
Before working with us to establish a selling price, Mary spent time identifying the features that would make our home stand out for buyers. She is knowledgeable, extremely organized, process driven, and keeps you informed at every step of the process. She is generous with her time, quick to respond to questions, and a delight to work with.
The Mitsuhashi Family
I had the pleasure of working with Michael back in February 2016 to buy my current home. He is a true professional and willing to go the extra mile for his clients which gave me the confidence we needed to go through buying our first house. Being able to reach him via email/phone almost any time if I had any questions or concerns gave me comfort and sleep during a stressful time.
Our home had multiple offers which caused us to offer more than the original list price however with Michael's guidance, we were able to close without overpaying and met the seller's short 30-day escrow request. During the home inspection, we found several issues that we had the seller fix prior to the close of escrow and due to my busy schedule, I was not able to make it out to the property to perform a final inspection. Michael was willing to go onsite on my behalf to review all the remaining concerns and made sure those issues were all fixed.
A couple of months after our purchase, we did encounter problems with the central A/C which our home warranty refused to cover calling it a "pre-existing condition". I contacted Michael and he was able to get in touch with the seller and get the contact information of the company that installed the system to get it fixed. I was very happy the Fry Team is willing to provide support even well after the purchase.
The Johnson Family
If you are looking for a professional real estate agent/team, call the Fry Team. This is the second experience we have had with the Frys. We gave them a bit of a curveball finding a lot that was unlisted and one that we wanted to buy. Lucky for us, Mary & Michael had sold this lot before and had complete knowledge of its details. However, she had to introduce herself to a new owner and sell herself and her company and her potential buyer to the seller and convince them why they should sell. With ease and within 1 week, we had an offer submitted and agreed upon. The Fry Team is an excellent choice for your real estate needs no matter how complicated or simple a sale/buy can be. Can't say enough good things about this team; they excel in communication, follow through and closing. We couldn't have been happier with our experience.
The Lukehart Family
We sold our home for full price when most other sellers were reducing their price. Mary maximized market awareness of our wish to sell with extensive and varied advertising approaches. Concurrently, Mary and her team helped us buy a new residence and escrows closed on the same day without a hitch. We believe the excellent result was achieved because Mary uses a team approach: photos and staging, paperwork administration, advertising
The Fry Team was really helpful in getting our house sold in the time and at the price we needed! They were super knowledgeable about the area and very professional.
The Bulak Family
If you are looking to buy or sell a home and want the best, then look no further. Mary and Michael Fry make a great team, a team that we have used twice in the Yorba Linda area. Always responsive to requests, aware of your needs, helpful in the staging of the home, and in my recent sale dealing with an estate sale, very accommodating and sensitive to the needs of all involved. From the beginning to the end, Mary and Michael and their staff stay on top of the process and keep you well informed. We strongly recommend contacting Mary and Michael for all our real estate needs.
The Kontur Family
Mary and Michael are a joy to work with. This is the second property Mary has sold for me. Her market knowledge is spot on. We listed my father's home on a Friday. An open house was held Saturday. On Monday she met with us and presented 9 offers many were over asking price. She walked us through the Pros and Cons of each offer. She made sure my father understood what was going on during each phase of the transaction. 35 days after listing the house escrow was closed. I have and will continue to recommend Mary and Michael to my friends and family. Thanks a million, Mary and Michael.
The Yuhia Family
I can't recommend Mary, Michael
The McCorkle FamilyI worked with Michael Fry in the purchase of a townhouse on Rapallo Plaza in Yorba Linda. Michael went well past the requirements of a real estate agent. He is a true professional in every meaning of the word.
The Villalobos Family
Michael and Mary were amazing to work with, they just helped us obtain our first property! Both are very knowledgeable in all aspects of home buying, and are there for you the entire process. When we bought our property we had some very strict deadlines, without the help of their team we would have never have met those! I could go on and on about how amazing they and their team are, I recommend them without even thinking. I can't wait for us to work together in the future!
The McDonough Family
Mary and Michael were referred to us by close family friends, and it could not have been a better match for my wife and I. Both Mary and Michael were extremely helpful and professional in helping us buy our first home. Every single question we had was answered in detail with transparency and full disclosure. Regardless of the time of day, both Mary and Michael were available to us during this process for everything we needed. Their reputation was validated during this process, and their awareness of the market only proved that more. I could not have asked for a smoother home buying experience, and I would highly recommend the Fry team to everyone in my extended network, as I am confident they would come out of their own experience with the same satisfaction that we have in our new home! Thank you so much Mary and Michael for everything.
