Contact Mary Pope-Handy at mary@popehandy.comWondering if you should contact us about buying or selling a home?

Mary Pope-Handy and Clair Handy help nice folks to buy and sell home homes throughout Silicon Valley, focusing primarily in Santa Clara County, but also sometimes in the lower East Bay (Fremont, Newark), the Peninsula, and the nearby areas of Santa Cruz County (Scotts Valley and Santa Cruz).  We have occasionally worked further out, but in general it doesn’t make sense for us to go more than an hour from our homes or office.

We are a mother-daughter team, locally born and raised, and coming out of a real estate family. Mary’s mother, Pat Pope, was a Realtor from 1956 to 1996 and was well known in Saratoga, Los Gatos, Cupertino, Santa Clara, and nearby areas. She loved to write and had a gift for story telling, and we are convinced that she’d have been a fabulous real estate blogger!

If you want to sell or buy elsewhere in the state, do contact us. We have a network of trustworthy real estate experts who can assist you!

We look forward to hearing from you!
