I moved to Larchmont when I was two and lived in the same house for the next twenty three years, decorated to a great extent by parents nurturing their daughter’s creativity. I married my brother’s best friend who grew up a few blocks away and we moved into a beautiful apartment in town which we outgrew when our own two daughters arrived. Homemaking for John and I has involved extensive renovations on five area houses we have called home.
Graduating Cum Laude from the College of the Holy Cross with a degree in Economics & Accounting and earning my CPA designation gave me the financial background I used in auditing international corporations, and years of decorative painting and renovating homes fulfilled my creative side. Real estate is where I really found myself and found enjoyment in work using all my talents.
I excel in this field thanks to my strong organizational skills and solid work ethic, but my enthusiasm has set me... More

Cum Laude Graduate of The College of The Holy Cross with a Bachelor's Degree in Economics and Accounting
2 years ago Mary Gail Barry helped us find our first home in Larchmont. We were skeptical of the 'burbs and decided to rent-- the house Mary Gail found for us was perfect, and two years later we decided to commit to Larchmont. Once again Mary Gail helped us find the perfect home. Through the rental process, she got a feel for what we liked (and didn't like!), so when we were ready to buy, she helped us narrow down to only those homes that might be appealing, really helping to maximize our time. This was our first home purchase and she guided us through every step of the process. Having grown up in Larchmont, she knows every house in town and knows everyone related to the home buying process. That local knowledge cannot be learned in a day-- it's built over time and is priceless! I hope to never move again, but if we do, I will definitely contact Mary Gail first.
Lisa & Pierre
I contacted Mary Gail after reading some reviews and she did not disappoint! As a first time home buyer, it's a very stressful, foreign process where you feel like you're just your offer number; however, Mary Gail made it as painless as possible. She understood the pace of the market and moved us quickly to get our offer(s) in and once we got an acceptance, she deftly guided us step by step with all the right, professional contacts and I think over all, the home buying process was not as nerve wrecking as I've read, much thanks to her. You definitely want Mary Gail on your team - we're happy we had her!
Vivian & Nic
"Mary Gail helped us during our long search for a new house in Larchmont. She was very patient and accommodating and always available to answer our questions and work around our hectic schedules. She knows the market very well and is easy to reach and always responds to calls, emails and texts quickly. She gave us great advice regarding several homes we were interested in and never tried to persuade us into buying something that we were not 100% sure fit our needs. She knew what we wanted and would be quick to see that a house didn't meet our requirements. After over a year we found the home we had been looking for and the closing process was seamless. We would definitely highly recommend Mary Gail!"
Sue & Matt, Larchmont
Mary Gail is amazing! My house had been up for sale six months previously with another agent and had no serious offers. I took it off the market, and when I put it back on I went with Mary Gail. What a difference! She just knew more, helped me stage the house more, she handled stuff with town permits, she connected me to service people I needed (plumber, carpenter). What a huge difference it makes to work with an agent like this! Within the first week or so of listing it I had an offer for over my asking price. I can't recommend Mary Gail highly enough.
We hired Mary Gail and her team in February 2017 to be the sales agent at the Cambium. During 2017 she sold 25 units at the development, an achievement we were very pleased with and is reflective of the professionalism and hard work she brought to the sales effort.
John M. Larchmont
Mary Gail represented us in the sale of a coastal residence. We chose her because of her reputation as one of the very best agents in the Larchmont/Mamaroneck area for luxury and coastal home sales. Mary Gail did not disappoint. We found her masterful in making sure the house was perfectly arranged for the photo shoot. She personally supervised the photography and worked with us to select the photos that best reflected our home’s strengths. She provided excellent counsel as to how to deal with competing bids and had great instincts about how to handle any issues that arose. She is a highly effective and clear communicator which fostered a timely and smooth process. Mary Gail always gives her honest opinion, not some sugar-coated version she thinks her client wants to hear. We trust her completely and recommend her highly.
Karen & Paul, Orienta Point, Mamaroneck
Mary Gail was an invaluable asset to our home purchase in Larchmont. She is incredibly intelligent about the market, super responsive, and also one of the nicest people you'll ever meet. If you want to find your dream home, MGB is hands down the best in the business. We will be recommending her to all of our friends as they move out of NYC.
Elsie & Joe, Larchmont Village
It was an immense pleasure working with Mary Gail in the recent search and ultimate purchase of our condo. For what can typically be a stressful experience, Mary Gail made it pleasant and easy. She is extremely attentive, responsive and very knowledgeable. She made herself always available, at any hour practically! She made us feel like we were her only customers. This was a rare and unique experience. Mary Gail would be our first and only recommendation for anyone looking for a home in Westchester.
Christine & Peter, Larchmont
Mary Gail Barry was an absolute delight to work with! She is very knowledgeable about the town of Larchmont and helped my fiancée and I find the perfect condo for us. She was very helpful throughout the entire process and answered all the questions we had. She was even kind enough to personally pick us up from the train station after work in order to show us the condominium. One of the best things I Ioved about working with her is that she recommended local lawyers to represent us during the process which made everything much more seamless! After closing, she reached out to officially welcome us to the neighborhood. Great realtor and highly recommended! Looking forward to potentially working with her again the future.
Justine & Ed, Larchmont
Mary Gail provided outstanding service. She spent time to understand our needs and worked hard though out the process to close the contact. Plan to work with Mary Gail again
Laura & Scott, Larchmont
Mary Gail is amazing and will make your home-buying process simpler and smoother than it should ever really be. First of all, she has an encyclopedic knowledge of each house and it's history (including price history). Second of all, she knows everyone and every place in town. Third, she has the process down cold. She's kind, funny and extremely patient and does not push you, nor does she force her upon opinion on you. She's objective and always responsive and available to give her informed, measured advice. Let's put it this way - Mary Gail is the person that other realtors go to for advice. I really can't say enough about how helpful she was in the process of buying our first home. She's the best.
Alison & David, Larchmont Manor
Mary Gail represented the seller in our recent home purchase, but was wonderful to work with. She was transparent, fair and upfront about all the details of our home and the process. She had no obligation to us as buyers, but was always responsive to our questions, and went out of her way to also accommodate and protect our interests as first time home buyers. It's rare to find someone with this level of integrity. After the process was complete she continued to help and guide us with our move in and set up questions, we are very grateful to her and strongly recommend her to future buyers and sellers alike.
Maria & Sudeep, Larchmont
Mary Gail was a great broker who helped a NYC family with two young children realize that moving to the suburbs is not scary. She was patient and always had our interest at heart when providing advice.
If you are looking for an agent to help you make the big move out of the city, Mary Gail is highly recommended by my family. Without her I think we’d still be overwhelmed.
Joanna & Kevin, Mamaroneck
Great, great, great real estate professional!!! Very knowledgeable, helpful and fully dedicated to her job. Very patient and super supportive! Even though she was representing a seller in our transaction she was always accommodating and helping us in any way she could. Highly recommend if you are looking for a professional and knowledgeable real estate agent.
Olga & Mike, Larchmont
Mary Gail was amazing, without her I'd still be in my house, She guided me through the whole process, from beginning to end. She's knowledgeable, honest,hard working and overall a really nice person.. For selling a house in Larchmont there's no one better. Under her wonderful advice it took me 2 months to get the house ready and only one week to have 7 offers all over asking, Trust Mary Gail to do the right thing.
Mary Gail recently helped us both sell our existing home and buy a new home. I can't imagine anybody knows the Larchmont market better. She made what could have been an incredibly stressful process much much easier. Mary Gail's incredibly detail oriented and caught a couple of things early that without attention could have derailed the process. She's easy to work with, kind, and really pays attention to what you're trying to accomplish. We really felt like she was "on our side" throughout. My wife and I couldn't recommend her any more highly.
Siofra & Scott, Larchmont Village
Working with Mary Gail was an absolute pleasure. We spent many months looking for a house with Mary Gail and she made the experience not only enjoyable but fun. She is an expert on the area and educated us about the different neighborhoods and homes. Equally important, she was always a calming and reassuring voice throughout the process. We truly fell in love with Larchmont through Mary Gail's passion and perspective. We cannot recommend her enough!
Alison & Dave, Larchmont
If you're looking for a fantastic realtor, look no further! Mary Gail is extremely honest, thorough and knowledgeable about the market and the Larchmont area. She worked with us for well over a year as we looked to make the move from the city to the suburbs. She coached us through the entire process, responding promptly to our (million) questions and requests and provided us with the local perspective we needed. She came highly recommended to us and I would enthusiastically pass her name along without hesitation!
Katie & John, Larchmont
We have worked with Mary Gail on multiple purchases and she has simply been terrific. Her expertise and knowledge of the market has been invaluable and critical to our decision making. Mary Gail is also extremely responsive and has gone out of her way numerous times to help us. We would recommend Mary Gail without hesitation.
Liz & Boris, Larchmont Village
Before working with Mary Gail, we searched for a home in Brooklyn for a long two years and endured frustrating and disillusioning attempts at home purchases. We met Mary Gail Barry through friends who had recently purchased in Larchmont and peaked our interested in the area. Mary Gail stands out amongst Real Estate agents because she is intuitive, intelligent and effective. She quickly figured out our individual needs and zeroed in on our priorities and preferences. She presented the big picture with relevant comparison properties and found us the gem we were hoping for. Within a few weeks of working with Mary Gail we had an accepted offer (!!!) on a wonderful home that was in our preferred location. I would whole heartedly recommend Mary Gail to help anyone find a home.
Anna & Corey, Mamaroneck
Mary Gail represented us during the sale of our home, and the recent purchase of our new home. Mary Gail was sensitive to our needs and busy schedules during the sale, and got to know us and what we as a family were looking for in our new home. We closed the sale on our old home satisfied, and are now in a new home that really fits our needs. We would use Mary Gail again, and would happily recommend her to family friends for their real estate needs.
Margaret & Andrew, Larchmont Manor
Mary Gail helped us through the sale of our apartment in Larchmont. This was our first time selling a home and she guided us through each step of the process. Her expertise resulted in multiple offers after only a few days on the market, and a sale price that we were very, very happy with. We are certain that, had we not worked with Mary Gail, we wouldn’t have received such strong offers for the sale of our home. Additionally, she helped us navigate the complex world of co-ops and all the additional steps that come with selling an apartment in a co-op building. While we have moved away from the greater NY area, we would not hesitate to recommend Mary Gail to anyone, she was simply the best!!
Kieran & Tom, Larchmont
Mary Gail led our home search in the Larchmont area. She is an absolute expert, and seems to know everyone and everything in town -- exactly what you want from a buyer's agent. She is professional, accommodating, and kind. Highly recommended.
Melody & Nick, Larchmont
Mary Gail was referred to us by a family members who had worked with them on the purchase of their amazing home in Larchmont. It's so hard to find someone you can trust and rely on so this was a no-brainer. MG knows this market inside and out and we were very impressed with her knowledge and expertise. Coming from Brooklyn, we knew nothing about the Larchmont market other than the fact it is HOT. The guidance she offered us so that we could be well positioned to make a strong offer, was invaluable. MG ended up referring us to a colleague of hers to handle our transaction since MG was actually the listing agent for the home we purchased, but the fact she had gotten to know us through several meetings and phone/email conversations leading up to when we ultimately had our offer accepted, we think helped get us in the front door with a solid recommendation, so to speak! We would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone looking to buy (or sell) in Larchmont. She's really good at what she does and works diligently for her clients
Alyson & Nate, Larchmont
We looked at many homes over a long period of time so spent many hours with Mary Gail. We liked her for being open, honest and for really understanding our needs. She is extremely well connected in the Larchmont/Mamaroneck areas, and was able to get us viewings before they hit the market or just as they hit. It was a pleasure working with Mary Gail and I would highly recommend using her.
Natasha & Larry, New Rochelle
When we decided to make the move from NYC to Larchmont, Mary Gail Barry came highly recommended by multiple people and we couldn't be happier with our experience working with her. She is professional, so knowledgeable extremely responsive and really understands what her clients needs are. There was never a point where we felt pressured to make a decision or where we felt like we didn't have enough information. She was extremely patient and thorough and taught us all the things we needed to know as a first time home owner. Even after our purchase, Mary Gail was so helpful with providing recommendations and introducing us to neighbors and friends, to help ease the transition of being in a new town. She has not only become our go-to realtor in the area but also a friend. I would (and already have) introduced Mary Gail to friends looking to buy a home in this area.
Lilly & Denis, Larchmont Village
Mary Gail is the ideal real estate sales person - extremely knowledgeable about the neighborhood and market and very helpful all the way from viewing appropriate homes through post-closing help and advice.
Wendy & Kevin, Larchmont Village
Mary Gail sold our apartment in Larchmont. The entire process was flawlessly executed and completely stress free. She is so knowledgable about the local market and the process that you feel very confident putting your trust in her. She sold our apartment in no time and for well above the asking price right before the holidays. We couldn't have asked for more.
Mary Gail is an extraordinary real estate broker. As first time homebuyers making the transition from NYC to Westchester, we spent several months trying to navigate the competitive Larchmont residential real estate market with various brokers without any success until we met Mary Gail. A real estate rock star, Mary Gail is extremely knowledgeable, resourceful, and connected with the community. She was by our side throughout the entire process, helping us identify potential homes and providing us with insight and guidance through the bidding process. Within just a few weeks, we found the house of our dreams. The relationship didn’t stop at the sale -- she welcomed us into the community, proactively introducing us to other new families, and connected us with local service providers to help renovate our new home.
Angela & John, Larchmont
If you are looking for a home in the Larchmont area, getting Mary Gail Barry as your broker is the best thing you can do for yourself. We met Mary Gail through a friend's recommendation (who gave us a glowing review based on his own experience of buying a house with her help). We had been living in the city for over 15 years and we were taking the plunge and moving to the suburbs. Mary Gail met with us early on in the process and was a tourguide for the area, showing us various neighborhoods and chatting about what kind of lifestyle and family we have. She was willing to spend a great deal of time with us well before we were ready to act. She stayed in touch and when we were ready to purchase, we saw up close how valuable she is to have as your agent. She knows the market inside and out. She knows the bidding process inside and out and because she has lived in Larchmont her entire life, she has spot-on intuition on pricing, timing, and value. When we finally went into contract on our dream house, her advice was even more valuable. From the city we were used to brokers who fade away when the contract is signed. She was on top of everything - our lawyer, the timing of the process, every walk through, pre-walk through, random evaluation, administrative filings of the house, everything. We considered ourselves somewhat experienced buyers/sellers/landlords, but Mary Gail caught some critical things on our behalf - "little" things that were in our best interest to push for or have checked out. Her foresight and intuition are a result of her experience and attention to detail. It is obvious she loves her job, she enjoys meeting new people, and she loves the Larchmont area. Mary Gail Barry is extremely professional, knowledgeable and experienced. She is also likeable and friendly and we feel lucky to have had her on our side throughout the process. We would highly recommend her to anyone with real estate needs in the Larchmont area.
Jennifer & Phillip, Larchmont Village
I am a professional; as such I value business relationships that both make me look good and make my life easier. As a decorator and a licensed general contractor I have worked in the home industry for decades both as a house flipper and for my clients, helping them get situated in their new homes. And, I have worked with many other realtors both personally and when consulting for my clients. IN my opinion nobody does it better than Mary Gail. She is smart, informed, clever, wily, financially astute, Mary Gail is a resourceful problem solver with a vast knowledge of local real estate. Quite simply Mary Gail is unparalleled. Oh--and she is delightful good company. I always look forward to seeing her.
Mary Gail Barry is an outstanding realtor. As a long-time Larchmont resident, she seems to know everything a client could possibly want to learn about Larchmont and the surrounding communities. She is a responsive, knowlegeable, thorough, and ethical probem solver who always seems to find an acceptable solution to the myriad of issues that crop up on any real estate transaction. Above all, Mary Gail always represents the best interests of her clients, and my husband and I trust her completely. You won't find a more accomplished professional in the Larchmont area to represent you on either the purchase or sale of your home. We cannot recommend her highly enough.
Jeanne and Art, Mamaroneck
Mary Gail Barry of Houlihan Lawrence is your go-to realtor if you are buying or selling a house in Larchmont/Mamaroneck/New Rochelle. She recently represented me on the successful sale of my home in Larchmont Manor. Having spent her entire life, and raised her family in Larchmont, she is extremely knowledgeable about all aspects of the local market. She was superbly helpful throughout the sale process, from great recommendations and resources on how to get my house ready for sale, through the final details of preparing for the closing and move. She always places the best interest of her clients as her first priority. She is a pleasure to work with and her professionalism and integrity are of the highest degree.
When we decided to put our house on the market, we called Mary Gail, because we knew that she was a very well-respected broker in the area. She definitely lived up to her reputation, as she was professional, highly responsive, detail-oriented and very hands-on. She gave us great ideas for preparing our house for sale and even brought in some of her own accessories to spruce up the look of our home. When it was time to determine an asking price for our house, Mary Gail was accurate and honest, because she truly knows the Larchmont and Mamaroneck market. I would strongly recommend Mary Gail to anyone looking to buy or sell a home in this area.
Emily & Jon, Larchmont Village
I Mary Gail helped us sell our apartment in Larchmont in record time. She was such a pleasure to work with through the entire process and helped us navigate everything from getting the apartment ready to weighing multiple bids. I have referred Mary Gail to friends and only heard the most positive feedback. I couldn't recommend her more highly.
Mary Gail is a true professional. She is great about keeping you well informed about every aspect of the buying and selling process. She knows how to avoid potential land mines and anticipate problems. She was always level headed and a pleasure to work with.
Gretchen & Tom, Larchmont
We are so grateful to Mary Gail for her work helping us through a complicated transaction. She always responded immediately to any inquiry. She made every effort to make the process as simple as possible for us. She went above and beyond and continues to be a great resource for us as we get to know our new town.
Emily & Ben, Larchmont Manor
Mary Gail came highly recommended from a friend and I couldn't have been happier working with her. She is masterfully knowledgable about Larchmont and the surrounding area. I felt that Mary Gail had the best interests of my family at heart; she was a great listener and understood what was important to us. I respected that Mary Gail never pushed a property - she always pointed out the pros and cons objectively and wanted us to be completely satisfied.She was also incredibly responsive and happy to help with any and all questions - referring various vendors...and even hosting a dinner party for newbies to the area! I would 100% recommend Mary Gail to anyone looking for a house in Larchmont.
Courtney & Rob, Larchmont Village
Rarely do you find a residential real estate agent in suburban NY, who really knows the market. Why? Because, even if they are "expert" in a market, they are too busy "selling" or "closing", and rarely listening! Mary Gail listens, studies, thinks dynamically and out works most of her peers in serving her client. She discovers buyer AND seller preferences, trends, and the particular needs of a client. Top notch, could not have done it with out her!
Leigh & Bob, orienta Point Mamaroneck
Mary Gail did an excellent job helping me list and sell my house in Larchmont. She provided smart advice on how to improve the appeal and staging of my home. She and the team developed a solid pricing and listing strategy, resulting in multiple offers in a very short period of time. Mary Gail was responsive and consistently pleasant and available. She knows the market well and provided excellent guidance; I would highly recommend her without hesitation.
Mary Gail is a rock star. She provided incredible guidance and knowledge throughout all steps of our home buying process. Her friendly, "get sht done" attitude gave us exactly what we needed as first time home buyers. She is incredibly communicative, responsive and connected to the market and community. I highly recommend using MGB if you are looking for a new home in Larchmont.
Lauren & Greg, Larchmont Village
Not only did Mary Gail help us find our perfect first home in Larchmont, she spent a ton of time talking to us about the town itself, driving us around to show us some of the highlights, and making us feel so comfortable with our decision to move to the suburbs. After one in-person meeting, Mary Gail was able to hone in on what our family wanted in a home and found the perfect place for us. Months after signing, she is still in touch with tips about the town and even sent several suggestions for summer camps for our kids. We are so lucky to have found her!!
Lisa & Pierre-Alain, Larchmont
Mary Gail Barry found us our dream home, while at the same time making the experience incredibly easy and enjoyable for us as first time homebuyers. Mary Gail listened to our needs and wants, and quickly found us the home we were looking for. Most importantly, she closely guided us through the entire home buying process and was happy to help in all ways (including babysitting while we viewed homes). She was always readily available to answer all our questions and has continued to offer her knowledge and assistance to us while we settled in our new home. We also extremely valued her knowledge of the schools, community and policies that factored into our home buying decision. She always gave us full and truthful advice and ultimately helped us find a home and community we love.
Mary Gail is extremely knowledgeable of the market, attentive to detail, and pleasurable to work with. I cannot recommend her enough and am so thankful that we had her as our agent and on our side during the stressful, yet exciting home buying process.
Lynn and Brian, Larchmont Village
Mary Gail is a tornado. From A to Z, she is all over the details, always keeping her clients' needs and desires at the top of her list. Words will not do justice in describing the good hands you will be in. No obstacle is to big, or detail too small, for Mary Gail to roll up her sleeves, to make things work and get things done. There's a reason she is the #1 Agent in the Mamaroneck School District, amongst many other awards. You will be well guided, and taken care of. Mary Gail gets the job done quickly, efficiently, is always in contact, knows the business inside and out, has lived in the area her entire life, and when everything is accomplished you'll know why she receives such accolades.
Renate & Peter, Larchmont Manor
Mary Gail helped us with both buying and selling our homes. She is a very competent and "can-do" realtor; she knows the market thoroughly, and gets the job done efficiently and effectively with no drama and a lot of experience (plus a very gracious and pleasant personality). Buying and/or selling a house can be a prolonged and tortuous process, but with Mary Gail by our side, we staged, priced and sold quickly, and also bought our new house quickly despite certain obstacles. I highly recommend her!
Pamela & Alex, Larchmont
Mary Gail is an exceptional residential real estate broker. She closely listened to our goals and must-have's with our home purchase and had the ability to only bring us options that were a fit. She is incredibly responsive and objective. She gave us great insight on the bidding process and provided helpful market data that allowed us to make an informed decision. Also worth noting that her expertise has stemmed far beyond the residential real estate role. She has also provided us with solid recommendations for the upcoming home renovation and design. I know we will have a long term relationship with Mary Gail - she has our highest recommendation.
Michelle & Matt, Larchmont Manor
Mary Gail is an excellent broker from start to finish. With her expertise, diligence and connections, my house sold for above asking price. From renovating, to presenting (staging/marketing/photography), to pricing the house just right, to the finishing touches--she was completely embedded in the process (and often on site) ensuring that everything was done above standard (and in a timely fashion). She has a wide array of trustworthy professional connections (ex. painters, stagers, photographers etc.) to help with the various stages. Mary Gail is a mover and a shaker. She gets the job done but at a high level and with the grace and kindness you may not expect from a real estate broker. Her knowledge of the industry and the Larchmont area is comprehensive. Mary Gail cares deeply about her clients and it shows. She will work hard for you and you will not disappointed. I am very grateful for all of her help and for making the process of selling my house manageable and a little less daunting.
Mary Gail acted as buyers' broker for us in our move from NYC to Larchmont. Over a period of at least a year, she was an amazing resource and guide. She was patient with us, as we were after something particular, reassuring when we were outbid, knowledgable on the town and its real estate market and extremely responsive and resourceful throughout the process. We honestly could not recommend MGB highly enough and we have a good friend in a new town.
James & Lexie, Larchmont Manor
Mary Gail Barry successfully listed and sold our house. She was professional and imaginative in leading us through the staging, pricing, listing, negotiating and closing process. We highly recommend her and her agency.
Janet & Ryan, Larchmont Manor
’Mary Gail is a consummate professional and a true expert about the listings in her area. She is caring, kind, and extremely responsive. She has a wealth of knowledge about town regulations, schools, policies and local history. And most importantly - she doesn't rush a buyer or make you feel pressured. If I could give her 10 stars - I would! She is wonderful and I couldn't recommend her more!”
Brandis & Todd, Larchmont
I recently sold my house in Larchmont New York through Mary Gail Barry at Houlihan Lawrence. The entire process couldn't have gone better due to Mary Gail's expertise in all aspects of real estate. Mary Gail made a stressful transaction get done without a hitch. I would highly recommend her to anyone.
We have just sold our Larchmont home of 23 years with the invaluable help of Mary Gail. She is now helping me find a new home and I honestly can’t imagine working with anyone else. First of all, Mary Gail is a lovely person, a consummate professional and a pleasure to work with. Moreover, Mary Gail works REALLY hard. One not so small example and there are many - on the morning of the brokers open house Mary Gail seemed to be simultaneously moving marble topped end tables in the living room, in the garden repotting plants and cutting flowers to put in vases, hanging pictures which she brought from her own home, and much more. In other words, she is generous and she gets her hands dirty! Staging my home with Mary Gail was fun and ultimately quite inspiring –she has excellent taste and is untiring in getting it right. Selling one’s home brings out complex emotions and Mary Gail could not have been more supportive, remaining upbeat, tirelessly responsive and always moving the process forward. Her experience, her long-term knowledge of Larchmont and her connections in the community are really priceless and manifest themselves in a myriad of vital ways throughout the process. I feel fortunate to have found her. Thank you, Mary Gail.
Judith & Arlen, Larchmont Village
Mary Gail was fantastic in helping us find a home in Westchester for our growing family. She understood our needs as a family of three (soon to be four) that is moving from NYC to the suburbs. Initially, she showed us a range of homes per our request to help us see a variety of alternatives and then after we understood the different alternatives, honed in on homes that fit our style and personality. As we visited potential homes, Mary Gail was great at stepping in to help us visualize how design elements of certain homes could be easily improved to fit our style. This was very helpful as we didn’t let little imperfections in design that didn’t fit our style get in the way of seeing the bigger picture of the home’s potential. As a local in Westchester/Larchmont for most of her life, she has a lot of knowledge of the area and offered us great “insider tips” before we relocated about everything from schools to restaurants. Finally, Mary Gail is very friendly and has a great personality that clicked with us immediately. She was never pushy but always managed to offer insightful perspectives and thoughts when she knew we needed it. She always went out of the way to fit our schedule even if it meant returning home from vacation early or changing her plans to accommodate our schedule. We highly recommend Mary Gail!
Alison & Brett, Larchmont Manor
Mary Gail Barry is the consummate professional. You want her to represent you. Mary Gail is extremely knowledgeable and extraordinarily responsive. Mary Gail goes well beyond what is asked/required. Mary Gail worked with us for a year to find the right house and she found us the right house! Beyond being fantastic at her job, Mary Gail is a wonderful person and a pleasure to work with.
Christine & Luke, Larchmont Manor
Mary Gail was a wonderful realtor and guided us through the first time home buying process seamlessly! The knowledge Mary Gail has of the market was unparalleled and we were consistently one step ahead on all potential listings. Mary Gail has strong working relationships with other brokers in the town and was clearly well respected by her peers. If you are new to the area or moving back her knowledge and expertise in of the market will ensure you have the best experience when buying a home!
Amanda & Ken, New Rochelle
Mary Gail is an exceptional real estate broker - with the perfect combination of in-depth expertise of the vicinity; impressive knowledge of the buy/sell process; and just as importantly great wisdom, patience and kindness. We would highly recommend her for any real estate transaction, and we consider ourselves extremely lucky to have had her guidance and input during our purchasing experience.
Michael, Larchmont Manor
Mary Gail has been wonderful to work with! She knows all the in's and out's of the area and has so much knowledge of the market. She let me know as soon as a house came on the market and always made time for phone calls and meetings. I can't say enough... she is truly the best!!!
Kerrilyn & Pat, New Rochelle
Mary Gail is an excellent agent and we are grateful for her work to find the home we will be happy in for many years to come. As a born and bred local, Mary Gail knows the ins and outs of the Larchmont and Mamaroneck residential markets. In the competitive spring season, her knowledge of properties that fit our needs, even before they came to market, was invaluable. Thanks so much for all you did for us Mary Gail!
Kim & Brion, Mamaroneck
My husband and I found a wonderful home in Larchmont on the internet that we knew wouldn’t last long on the market. Based on a family referral, we contacted Mary Gail about helping us to see the property and represent us in the home buying process. We were lucky to have connected with such a knowledgeable, professional and responsive real estate agent Mary Gail responded right away, even though it was a Sunday, and got us into the property for a showing the next day. She came prepared with an analysis of comparable sales in the immediate neighborhood, took us on a great tour of the village and provided helpful information about the local schools, small businesses and community groups. Having grown up and raising her own family in Larchmont, Mary Gail has an insider’s knowledge of the community, which was invaluable to us since we were coming from Manhattan and new to Larchmont. But what really sets Mary Gail apart from the rest is her management of the home buying process. She was tactful and detail oriented through the negotiation and closing process, but had an eye for the bigger picture. During our visits at the house, she was knowledgeable about conditions of the house and what to watch out for during the inspection. She provided some wonderful ideas for renovations and had an endless list of recommendations for well-priced tradesmen, contractors, home stores, etc. that she was always willing to share. Mary Gail was a pleasure to work with and we would recommend her to our own family and friends, no question.
Anna & Mike, Larchmont Village
Mary Gail Barry is fantastic--- a true expert of the Larchmont/Mamaroneck area. She responds promptly (sometimes within seconds!) and provides very helpful recommendations and advice. The home buying process can be stressful, and MGB helps you along all steps without being pushy. I'd recommend her to anyone looking in the Larchmont/Mamaroneck area.
Christina & Jon, Larchmont
Mary Gail Barry was a DREAM real estate representative - highly professional, she knew when to intervene in and guide the process, and when to provide the space for her clients while they contemplate such an important transaction. What is more, it would be hard to find an expert with more local knowledge given that she has decades of living and working experience in the Larchmont/Mamaroneck vicinity onshore and offshore! For anyone looking for an incredibly smart, discrete, dedicated, reliable, and kind broker, we strongly recommend Mary Gail.
Colleen, Larchmont Manor
We are newlyweds and were looking for our first home together. Luckily, we happened upon Mary Gail! Mary Gail is friendly, knowledgeable, and approachable. She was incredibly patient as we navigated the co-op process and home buying process for the first time. Highly recommended.
Melissa & Chris, Larchmont

Christie & Brad, Rye
Mary Gail is certainly “A Breed Apart” from any other broker we have met. She is friendly, organized and a delight to spend time with. She helped us reorganize our home and made it more appealing to prospective buyers. Mary Gail made sure the photos of our home were well thought out. She has a wonderful eye for detail!
She is talented technologically and made excellent use of worldwide databases to represent our home for a quick and easy sale.
We are delighted to recommend Mary Gail to anyone looking to buy or sell a home in the area.
Nancy & John, Larchmont Manor
Mary Gail showed me houses in Larchmont, Mamaroneck & New Rochelle. She has extensive knowledge of the area and guided me through the whole process. She was patient with my indecisiveness but really intuited what would be perfect for me! Besides she is just so pleasant to be with. I am so happy with her and my new home. Thanks, Mary Gail
Cathy, Larchmont Manor
Over the course of almost two years, Mary Gail helped my husband and I get to know the Larchmont and New Rochelle (Larchmont Woods) area. We began our search for the perfect home before we started a family as a way to understand the market and figure out what was on our priority list for our first house. Mary Gail was incredibly patient and understood our desires and needs; most importantly, she got what our "vision" and knew which houses would be a good fit as soon as they came on the market. She didn't waste our time with houses that she knew didn't make our checklist, and she was dedicated to helping us really achieve what we wanted out of a house. After almost two years, we found our dream home and with lots of guidance and knowledge of what we had to do to "seal the deal" we got our home in a competitive market. I really loved that Mary Gail grew up in the area and had the insider perspective on what it was like to raise a family in this town.
Jenna and Dino, New Rochelle
Mary Gail was extremely helpful in coordinating, organizing, and executing the sale of my in laws house in Larchmont, NY. I had the ability to work with her side by side and she was very helpful, professional and a pleasure to work with. Thank you!”
Ed, Larchmont Manor
Mary Gail Barry was wonderful to work with throughout our real estate search. She has really become a friend of ours through this experience and was always in our corner making sure we found the right home. She is full of knowledge and advice on Larchmont and we trusted her input completely - especially because this was our first home purchase. We ultimately ended up in our home because she Mary Gail encouraged us to give the listing a chance and to look past its high price-point and remodeling needs. We are so grateful that she prodded us to give it a chance and to see its true potential because we couldn't be happier now. Mary Gail is not only a seasoned professional who will fight for you - but she is the type of person you can call even after you are moved in for advice on landscapers, nursery schools, etc. She becomes a friend. I highly recommend her!
Laura & Zack, Larchmont
Mary Gail is thorough, knowledgeable and extremely responsive. She guided me every step of the way. I feel fortunate to have worked with her and will highly recommend her to others.
John, Larchmont Manor
Mary Gail Barry helped us to both sell the house our family was living in as well as buy our new home. I can't say enough about how positive the experience has been. She never tired when looking (for several years) , and truly "liked showing people houses." And this was evident throughout our time working together. For something that can be very stressful, Mary Gail made it fun, and her expertise in the process and knowledge of the area always made us feel confident that nothing was getting overlooked. Mary Gail was there for us for every step along the way and I would recommend her whole-heartedly.
Lisa & David, Larchmont Manor
I can not speak highly enough about our experience working with Mary Gail. Mary Gail was a pleasure to work with during what can be a very stressful process. She is incredibly patient, very knowledgeable about Larchmont and real estate, and extremely responsive. She never rushed us or made us feel that we were taking up too much of her time. It was obvious that she cares a lot about her clients and helping them find the perfect home for their needs. Mary Gail is also a strong negotiator and maintains the utmost integrity.
Brian & Becky, Larchmont Village
From Jake and Ivana, Larchmont Mary Gail was fantastic! She knows the area inside and out and went out of her way to help us coordinate things as we were doing our search from London. She also has great contacts and has helped us to coordinate some improvements on the home after the sale. Highly recommended!
Jake & Ivana, Larchmont Village
Mary Gail goes above and beyond. I highly, highly recommend her!
Renate & Peter, Larchmont Manor
Whether you are buying or selling, Mary Gail is a knowledgeable professional who works quickly and makes herself available to her clients. She knows the best approach to buy or sell and the market. When selling our house, she helped stage our home and advised us how to make minor investments that would pay off- and they did. We had a bidding war and made far more money than we anticipated!
Alison & Matthew, Mamaroneck
Selling a home is a complex process & choosing Mary Gail Barry as our Realtor was key to achieving successful results. Mary Gail possessed the professional skills to accurately define the real estate market; positively prepare & position our property in that market; successfully market the property & negotiate the highest value for our home in a timely manner. Throughout the process, Mary Gail displayed strong leadership and was well respected in her dealings with other members of the real estate community. She kept us well informed & we always knew she had our best interests at heart. We were very fortunate to have Mary Gail Barry represent our home and we have the results to confirm we made the right decision!
Helen, Larchmont Manor
I would absolutely recommend Mary Gail. She is great with details and is a pleasure to work with. She knows the town and the market and has a great eye for what a home is really worth. She helped us narrow down the market so that we could make an informed choice when we were ready to buy...and when we found an almost perfect house, she helped us envision how, with a few tweaks, we could make it our perfect home. Then, when we were ready to put our existing house on the market, she made sure we had everything ready to go in less than a week. And we got a great offer after only 2 days on the market!
Susan & Tom, Larchmont Manor
Mary Gail was instrumental in finding us the right home; her extensive knowledge of the area where we were looking helped us immensely; she was always available and ready to show us as many properties as possible; we were coming from out of state specifically to see potential properties so timing was an important factor. She helped us with any questions concerning the area; she makes the buying process a pleasant and expedient experience. I highly recommend Mary Gail; her professionalism, knowledge and efficiency are absolutely key in helping you find the home you've been looking for.
Ivonne & Pablo, Orienta Mamaroneck
Mary Gail Barry was instrumental in helping to market the recent sale of our home in Larchmont, N.Y. Mary Gail is professional, knowledgable and very responsive and we were thrilled to have her as our agent. Mary Gail was raised and lives in Larchmont and she certainly has her pulse on the market. She was particularly helpful to us while we were pricing our home for sale. Mary Gail was willing to help out in any way. No task was too big or too small. My husband and I wholeheartedly recommend Mary Gail Barry
Liz & Jude, Larchmont Village
Mary Gail was fantastic in assisting us in our search for our first home! We really connected with Mary Gail, and she was great at figuring out our needs and desires in a new house even when we could not put those needs and desires into words. She is extremely knowledgeable about Larchmont and the surrounding towns in southern Westchester, and proved to be an expert of all things related to the Westchester housing market. Mary Gail was more hard-working, thorough, and friendly than we ever could have hoped for from a broker. We would highly recommend Mary Gail to anyone looking for a broker, and we will be excited to use her as our broker in the future. You can't find anyone better. Thanks Mary Gail!
Audrey & Brian, Larchmont Manor
It was a sincere pleasure working with Mary Gail to find our first home in the Larchmont area. She has deep and direct knowledge of the local market and was extremely thorough throughout all phases of our experience. She really seemed to understand our "wish list" immediately and ironically we found our home on the first day working with her. Her personable and supportive demeanor made our first home purchase quite enjoyable. I would highly recommend Mary Gail to my friends, colleagues and family members.
Stephanie & Brendan, Larchmont Village
We recently moved from London to Larchmont. We called Houlihan Lawrence and were assigned Mary Gail Barry and this proved to be our good luck. Managing limited viewing times from London was not easy, but Mary Gail did it. With an accurate assessment of what our desires were she managed our 2 half day visits with precision. As she had selected a perfect assortment, we found our home with ease, after only two visits to Larchmont. We went back to London and Mary Gail took us through each step of the process. Everything went smoothly. She fortified us with Larchmont knowledge so that we already know the short-cuts! Thank you Mary Gail.
Alice & Christophe, Larchmont Manor
I moved from San Francisco, to NY in the fall of 2013 with my husband and 2 sons under 3 years old. I had 6 weeks between when we found out we were moving to when I landed in NY. It was not much time to figure out where to live and find a place. After much research I settled on Larchmont and on a cold call got Mary Gail, and that was a gift. I didn't know if we should rent or buy and had no experience in Westchester. After many conversations and tours of rentals and for sale homes in Larchmont, Mary Gail, assessed our situation and suggested we rent in a managed building with more flexibility close by until we got here and got settled. That advice was invaluable as it gave us time to get here and relax and get to know the area before diving in. The market was quite hot so we immediately started looking to buy to understand the local market, it because quite clear that we were not going to get what we wanted for our price. The first house Mary Gail showed us had been on the market for a while, was well in our price range but to the "world" had a few flaws. Mary Gail helped us see the potential and talk us through the potential cons and helped us secure it in a very quick time-frame on the terms we wanted. She was very positive, honest and never got pushy despite how quickly the market was moving. We are first time homeowners and had no knowledge of anything. She helped us with local contacts and answered all of our questions no matter how big or small. We would recommend her to anyone. She really listens to what you need and want and what your range is and gives you all the options. This is very important as buying a home can be stressful. Thank you Mary Gail!
Leah & Mark, Larchmont Village
Mary Gail has all the positive attributes listed above, making it very difficult to select only three. She was delightful to work with at each step of the sales process, understands the Larchmont real estate market and guided us expertly through the process. Her intelligent marketing counsel resulted in rapid sale of our house. We cannot recommend Mary Gail enough.
Christina & Bob, Larchmont Village
I would definitely recommend Mary Gail. Coming from Spain and being homeowners for the first time in USA made us look for some one special in the Real Estate Business in Larchmont, Thank God we found her. She can assist you with not only professional Knowledge, but also with the Knowledge coming from someone that has been living in the area all her life. She's always there with plenty of good advices, making you feel much more than just a client, a friend. " Thank you Mary Gail.
Carmen & Alfredo, Larchmont
Mary Gail Barry is a gem in the truest sense of the word! My wife and I walked into her office unannounced one Sunday afternoon seeking apartment-hunting guidance. Within thirty minutes, she booked two viewings for that very same day. Her professionalism, warmth, dedication, and assistance is unparalleled. The place we were interested in (and ultimately ended up acquiring) necessitated significant, laborious paperwork. She guided us every step of the way and followed up frequently to check on the status once everything had been submitted. Our gratitude to her is immeasurable.
Kayla & Tiho, Larchmont Village
I highly recommend Mary Gail if you are looking to buy or sell in Southeast Westchester County. She knows the market well, knows timing, knows pricing, helps you prepare, provides insight, and is an all around professional to work with.
Keri & Chris, Larchmont
As a first time buyer and not knowing much about the housing market I had the privilege of meeting and working with Mary Gail. She was very patient and accommodating when showing different properties. She guided me in the right direction, recommended other professional people that aided in the sale of my apartment and constantly sent me updated information regarding new properties that were for sale. Anyone interested in buying any kind of property, I would highly recommended Mary Gail not only for her professionalism but her kindness as well.
Dana G, Larchmont
It was our pleasure to work with Mary Gail to find a perfect home for our family. Mary Gail understood what young families from NYC are looking for when they are moving to Southern Westchester. Mary Gail always made herself available to show houses during the week and weekends. Mary Gail was always accommodating even when it was to show one of my parents a property just for a second opinion. She has a very good working relationship with other brokers in the region and will use leverage when necessary. She patiently worked with us as we looked at houses and eventually decided to buy land and build a house. We would highly recommend Mary Gail to anyone looking for that perfect home in Southern Westchester, as well as any young couples/families from moving from the city.
Sabrina & Nitin, Larchmont
Mary Gail knew our needs that well and was able to create so much trust that I decided to rent a house without having seen it, but solely based on her advice. That to me is the ultimate result.
Ingaborg & Jim, Orienta Mamaroneck
Mary Gail surpassed my expectations as a real estate agent. Not only did she find my husband and I the perfect apartment at the right price in the perfect location but provided exceptional service all the way. Mary Gail was always prompt in getting us information or coordinating with the seller. She also provided excellent advice and recommendations, which is invaluable to first time home buyers. It was very reassuring having Mary Gail by our side during this very stressful and important process. Thank you Mary Gail.
Sandy & Evan, Larchmont
We want to thank Mary Gail for all the hard work she put into the sale of our house in Larchmont, preparing the house for showing and making sure that it was presentable for showing to prospective buyers. Mary Gail kept us informed after each showing with comments made by the prospective buyers, and made suggestions to improve the salability of our house. She guided us all the way through the contract and closing process. Mary Gail was very professional, in her dealings with us and prospective buyers. She certainly has our reference and recommendation to anyone that would be interested in selling their home.
Margaret & Manny, Larchmont Manor
After looking for a couple months, we bought a house in Westchester. Somewhat apprehensive after multiple dealings with real estate brokers in the city, Mary Gail turned out to be knowledgeable, professional and helpful. She knows the area in and out, listened to what we were looking for and helped us narrow down our visits to houses we liked. She always made herself available for our weekend trips to the area and even helped us find a contractor, gardener, architect, movers... Her experience was invaluable in getting the right house at the right price and she made the process enjoyable. I would wholeheartedly recommend her for any kind of real estate transaction in the Westchester area!
Peggy & Nic, Larchmont Village
Mary Gail was knowledgeable, communicative, and a pleasure to work with. All Good!
Kathie & David, Larchmont
Our search for the perfect home began over two years ago with Mary Gail. From co-ops to fixer-uppers, to our excitement and uncertainties, Mary Gail was there to guide us through an ever changing real estate market. Thanks to all of her efforts and support, my family has found our perfect home! We can't thank Mary Gail enough.
Kate & James, New Rochelle
Mary Gail Barry, my real estate broker with Houlihan Lawrence, was simply amazing! Her familiarity with Larchmont was integral to our ability to sell our home in the midst of an historic housing downturn. We were able to sell our home without taking a financial loss which is even more incredible. She knew what the market was projecting as far as pricing and demand and her faith and support never wavered, and because of that, neither did ours. I would gladly recommend her to any of our friends looking to get the best deal possible in town. Thank you Mary Gail!
Kendra & Ryan, Larchmont Manor
When my husband moved from Mamaroneck to Kansas City, we retained his home as a rental property. After a couple years of "landlording" from 2500 miles away, we chose the bold move to sell the property in the middle of a very challenging market time. Our initial listing with a different realtor produced almost no results over the course of a year. We were frustrated and almost at the end of our rope. Then...Mary Gail was referred to us. Within one week, we had more communication with her than we had for the 12 months prior. She immediately went into action for us! She surveyed the property, made solid yet frugal recommendations for staging, provided us resources, intervened with our renter, and even handled a critical issue on a week-end while on vacation! She was absolutely our advocate and an extension of our presence since we live so far away. Within 3 weeks of working with Mary Gail we sold the property very near our asking price. And all of this without even meeting face to face!!! Mary Gail's attention to detail, sense of urgency, no nonsense yet VERY pleasant communication, industry savvy, and just plain hard work are attributes that cause her to be an extraordinary realtor! We would recommend Mary Gail to anyone who is serious about buying or selling
Mickie & Jeff, Mamaroneck
Mary Gail worked with my family purchasing a house in the Larchmont/Mamaroneck area. We found her to be very attentive to our needs and tastes, and insightful enough to help us refine and expand our interests in directions we might not have considered. She also demonstrated a detailed knowledge of data available for the houses we looked at, and was a tremendous asset in researching properties that we were considering. She is professional, punctual, and helpful with all steps, including providing local vendors we'd need once we moved in. We would happily work with Mary Gail again, and would wholeheartedly recommend her.
Alison & Matt, Rye Neck
My husband and I really found a gem in Mary Gail. She helped us find the perfect home and through her expertise and connections we were able to navigate the bidding process successfully against the competition. She has gone above and beyond for us in every aspect of the home buying process and continues to be a great resource even after we have closed on our home. On top of her skills and knowledge of the industry and area, she is just a wonderful person and has become and will continue to be a great friend of ours. I would whole-heartedly recommend Mary Gail to my family and friends and would want them in her care when looking for the perfect home.
Stephanie, Larchmont Village
Mary Gail helped me a purchase a co-op. She was able to get me a good price. Mary Gail stayed in contact throughout what was a very trying purchase. She kept in frequent contact with the seller’s lawyer and real estate agent, and kept me abreast of any new developments. Mary Gail was also able to make excellent recommendations for attorney and mortgage professionals. Thank you, Mary Gail.
