    Mary Sue Cady-Mainella

    Mary Sue is a skilled, enthusiastic agent who is focused and dedicated to excellence in real estate markets. I am happy to be working with Century 21 Northeast! We service Maine, New Hampshire, Massachusetts, Rhode Island. We have over 40 locations and over 800 agents!

    Buying or selling a home is not a simple transaction it represents the largest single financial transaction in most people's lives. Everyone has unique goals. I embrace those goals and am committed to assisting you to achieve them. I strive every day to deliver unsurpassed service, intelligence and insights.

    Mary Sue holds client service and commitment to their needs, at the highest level. She served clients for over 30 years, in the health insurance industry. This experience awarded her expertise in management, sales, service, training and underwriting both in Maine and New York. In 2000, she became self-employed as a Benefits Consultant for employers with 10-2500 employees. This solidified her skills that coincide with real estate: honesty, integrity, organization, attention to detail, artful negotiation, following up and following through.

    Mary Sue was raised in Portland, Maine where she also received her degree from SMCC. Having wonderful childhood memories of summers on Long Island, Maine, she and her family chose to live in a village of Long Island, New York, which very much reminded her of Maine. After 12 years in New York City and Long Island, Mary Sue has now called Falmouth her home since returning to Maine with her family in 2003.

    Working with both buyers and sellers, Mary Sue is diligent to earn the trust of clients and attentive to manage expectations. Working with all parties for a seamless transaction and satisfied clients is always her goal.
    Outside of work, Mary Sue enjoys spending time with her husband, Michael and two sons, who attend Hobart & William Smith Colleges and Wheaton College (MA). She is active in her community and her children's various sports teams for 15 years. She has recently recaptured her love for competitive swimming after 30+ years.

    The satisfaction of a happy client is the best reward of all ~ #MarySueAndYou!

    My Client Testimonials

    MarySue went above and beyond in every aspect of my transaction. She dealt with matters quickly and professionally and she coordinated the efforts of all of the parties involved in order to make my purchase successful! I wouldn¿t consider using any other agent! MarySue called me within minutes and was available anytime I needed her. She was excellent in every way! I couldn¿t have hired a better agent than MarySue! ~ Alia Fahlborg, Saratoga Springs, NY
    Mary Sue was very patient with us. We were initially working with her long distance. We lived in Santa Fe, NM when we started our search and she would go to a property and FaceTime with us so that we could see the different properties. Over the time period that we worked on the purchase of our house we became friends and what a great compliment to a realtor to consider them a friend in addition to a great realtor. ~ Susan Davis, Brunswick, ME
    We partnered with Mary Sue Cady-Mainella to sell our home. We chose her because she produced the most accurate competitive analysis for the sale, and seemed more enthusiastic about selling the house than another realtor we spoke with. Through no fault of anyone involved, there were complications that arose during the sale (not unusual). Mary Sue was always there with us and dealt with all of it for us, in a professional manner. She really saved the sale at one or more points when it could have easily fallen apart. I would absolutely recommend her for any home sale in the area because she really knew the market and performed beyond our expectations when issues arose. ~ Eric M. & Katie B. - Cape Elizabeth
    Thank you for making our Maine Home Purchase so great. Hopefully you and your husband can come and have a drink with us on Frye Island sometime. ~ Mike M. - Boston MA
    We were matched with Mary Sue by when I was interested in a property. I could tell by our first phone conversation that she would be perfect for us! Mary Sue was awesome!! She paid attention to EVERYTHING, every step of the way and intervened with mortgage people when necessary...which was OFTEN, I am certain we would never have been able to buy this amazing lake house without her! Cant say enough good things about Mary Sue! Shes the best and I now consider her a friend! It was clear from the start that Mary Sue would not only be easy to work with, but that she really CARED about not only helping us find the perfect house, but to make the process as easy as possible. We had some big glitches during the process...primarily with the communication and effort on the part of the lender...and Mary Sue continuously fought on our behalf to keep the process moving forward! She never wavered in her dedication. I know she works on commission, but Mary Sue deserves some sort of gigantic bonus for what she did for us! ~ Chris T., Raymond, Maine

    Mary Sue relieved a lot of stress that comes with buying a home for the first time. It was still stressful at times, but she was always there to explain things or work to come up with a solution. Being across the country for half of the time we were searching for a home she was extremely accommodating, even with the time difference was very easy to contact, or quick to return calls. She also provided many video walkthroughs of homes we could not see. Overall she was a blessing. ~ Andrew, Gorham
    I want you to know I have so enjoyed working with you! So many agents are not willing to do anything to help their clients! God Bless you and I pray it comes back to you seven-fold! Thank you again, Jane F.
