    We use Mary to help us when we wanted to sell our home on Lake Lanier. We paid for a personal appraisal before listing the home to know the market and the right asking price. We found Mary to be very knowledgeable of the lake. Her appraisal helped us to maximize our Sale Price. We would recommend using Mary.

Mary Thompson is the most widely respected appraiser when it comes to lake lanier property. Since each lake lanier property has its own personality, it is difficult to 'do' comps or a CMA. Mary does many pre-list appraisals for me so we have a definite guideline in which to price correctly the 1st time and hopefully alleviate the 'appraisal contingency' after receiving an offer. I trust her implicitly and value her professionalism. Teresa Smith-Keller Williams Realty Buford

Dennis Latimer-Home Owner 

Finding an appraiser who is knowledgeable about lake properties is definitely a hit or miss proposition and if you have been around the lake long enough you certainly hear your share of bad experiences. When we decided to sell our lake home, Mary Thompson's name kept coming up as the "go to" person in terms of Lake Lanier appraisals and we certainly could not agree more based on our experience. Not only was Mary prompt, professional, fair and knowledgeable, she was great to work with and provided valuable home marketing advice as well. Her appraisal not only helped us establish an objective and defensible asking price, but it was also invaluable both to us as the sellers and to the buyers during negotiations on the final purchase agreement. We closed on our house last week, having had an incredibly pleasant and smooth transaction, in no small part because Mary helped us establish a fair and reasonable price. We would strongly advise getting an appraisal before marketing your home, especially a lake home given how unique each property tends to be, and you would be hard pressed to find a more skilled and objective appraiser to work with than Mary Thompson and Lanier Appraisal Service.


CW Jenkins-Home Owner
I am very happy with Lanier Appraisal Service and Mary Thompson who recently appraised our Lake Lanier Home. She was very knowledgeable with Lake Lanier Properties. This whole process was new to me, but I am very glad that my Realtor suggested I have an appraisal done in order to determine how much I should List my property for. Mary spent a good deal of time at my home taking photos and measuring my house, and even provided me with suggestions on how to make my home show well for prospective buyers. I had no idea what my Lake home was really worth and she provided me with that information. She was very professional and helpful and if anyone is thinking of selling their Lake home or just wants to know what their home is worth, I recommend Lanier Appraisal Service and their appraiser Mary Thompson for the job.

Olivia Petershagen - Realtor 
"Mary Thompson was a Godsend to us when we were trying to close a property at Lake Lanier. Our Mortgage Company used their appraiser initially and almost cost us the property. Just 2 days prior to closing our mortgage company finally realized that they needed a Lake Lanier Specialist and called Mary Thompson. Not only was Mary able to give them the real value of the property, but did the appraisal immediately and saved our closing. We are extremely grateful for her. She went beyond the call of duty. She is a professional and friendly and knows her business. As a real estate broker, I will insist that we use Mary for all our future appraisals. Thanks Again, Mary." Olivia Petershagen.

   Mary Thompson completed a very complex appraisal for a Lake Lanier Property in which I was the selling agent for.  She did an outstanding job on the appraisal in a very short time frame allowing the loan to close on time for my buyers.  In today's real estate market and complex lending opportunities it was refreshing to have Mary make my clients appraisal a priority.  She was amazing!!  Thank you Mary
