When you are looking to buy or sell your home you need to think about exactly what your needs are! I will ask the questions to narrow down your specific criteria. I want you to find what is right for you. I have the ability to hone in on your needs. I owned my own successful business for 20 years and I know how to negotiate. I am focused on my job and stay in touch, as any business owner must.
I also have worked with some top notch builders right here in Music City. I had the job of going over plans and picking out lighting, all hard and soft components from tile, to countertops to fixtures. This insight is priceless in the home search. I have gotten accolades in the community that prove my ethical standards and ability to market properties. And I listen. This might be the most important feature a Realtor can offer today.
You want someone to hear what you want and need in this important decision.
I know Nashville well. I was born right here! And I know all parts of the city and have represented all areas from Green Hills, to Melrose, 12th South to East Nashville, Bellevue to Donelson and more.
I want you to know the areas you are interested in from the schools, recreation, lifestyle and walkability. I want to research what is coming in your area of interest. I look at flood plains and everything surrounding the area.
Education in a Realtor is also critical so that they know the latest in technology, conducting personal searches and even photography for that home you want to sell.
As a first time home buyer, I was completely overwhelmed by the process. However, Mary not only held my hand, kept me organized, and most importantly sane, but she made what could have been a completely stressful situation fun. The ups and downs, highs and lows, laughs and tears were all worth it when we found ‘the one,’ and it wouldn’t have been possible without her. She was a great coach, cheerleader and mentor throughout the whole process, and when I become a second time home buyer I plan on giving her a ring! – Hannah K.
Mary O’Neil is one of the most thorough and knowledgeable real estate agents Ive had the pleasure of working with! You never have to worry about something slipping through the cracks with her. I told her i was looking for an investment property and she came back with TWO! I found it impossible to narrow it down to just one because they were such amazing opportunities, so I bought them both. On top of that, she’s tons of fun to be with making the “business” end of a transaction very pleasurable. She can make it happen!- Janice C.
Mary is incredible. We approached her with the tough challenge of helping us be in a house by June 1st and we didn’t start our search until mid-April. She worked diligently to lineup a large number of houses and if we found something we liked and it didn’t work out, she kept us positive and kept looking. We found the perfect home and Mary was there at every step with advice for the builder, inspection and lender. The best part, we were fully moved in our new home by May 30th – two days before our goal. Again, I can’t say enough about Mary, her hard work, and great attitude throughout the process. For someone that has never bought a home before, she made me very comfortable at every point. – Cliff C.
My former career was a self employed artist for 25 years and owner of Hot Potatoes Rubber Stamps. As owner and designer I appeared nationally on The Carol Duvall Show on HGTV twice monthly for over 10 years. My work and products were featured on the covers of Southern Living and Better Homes and Garden and all without a marketing firm behind me. I am hard working and will work hard for you!
I live on the Cumberland River with my husband Brian, two unruly terriers, Buster and Sister and big old cat named Little Ricky.
Above all else, I pride myself on service skills and referrals from friends, family andpast clients and would love the opportunity to help you buy or sell your home.

Mary O’Neil is deeply involved in the Nashville community, and works hard every day to keep up-to-date on the latest Nashville news and happenings which matter to current and future residents. Because being up-to-date on just real estate and property values is not enough. Not when today’s homeowners are buying for a lifestyle, for walkable amenities, for great restaurants you don’t even need to drive to, or amazing schools.
When you’re helping someone buy a Nashville home, the best results comes from being so well-informed about the area that you can speak on it confidently. That you can speak on it like a native. That you know what new restaurants, schools, or entertainment are already there… and you know what’s planned. Nashville is growing to the tune of 80 people a day, and it’s no longer enough to buy a neighborhood for what it looks like today: because a year from today, it might be unrecognizable thanks to rising urban density.
