About Mary and Clair, Silicon Valley Realtors

About Mary Pope-Handy

Mary Pope-Handy, Silicon Valley RealtorI am a Los Gatos real estate agent, a second generation Silicon Valley Realtor and sell homes all over  Santa Clara County.  I have been listing and selling San Jose area homes full time since 1993, am a consistent top producer, prolific writer / blogger, and all around real estate education junkie.  I value staying on top of the market, contracts, and changes in real estate and am committed to my ongoing education.  I have a myriad of real estate designations and certifications, and in 2015 also completed a negotiation class offered by Stanford University.

I graduated from Saratoga High School (where I took great classes in writing and photography), Gonzaga University (BA Religious Studies), and the Graduate Theological Union / Jesuit School of Theology at Berkeley (MA Systematic Theology). Junior year of college was spent abroad in Florence, Italy.

I’m happily married and have two grown kids, the youngest of whom is Clair, my real estate partner! My husband and I live in Los Gatos.  In my free time I enjoy travel, writing, photography, family get togethers, doing some beading and jewelry making, walking in my neighborhood and keeping in touch with friends and family.

There’s quite a bit of info about me on my sites, for those who’d like more info: http://www.popehandy.com/about-mary-pope-handy/  (also see related testimonials page) and/or http://www.valleyofheartsdelight.com/About

I’d also like to invite you to google my name for reviews (Zillow has the most, but you’ll also find them on Yelp, Google, Realtor.com, Facebook, etc.).



About Clair Handy

Clair Handy, Silicon Valley RealtorI am a South Bay native, blogger, and third generation Silicon Valley Realtor (and Mary Pope-Handy’s best and only daughter).

A lifelong student of Silicon Valley homes, I penned my first article on Mary’s award-winning blogs back in 2009 and have continued to provide content ever since.

From a very young age, my curiosity towards Mary’s work lead me to develop a keen eye for architectural styles, red flags (like signs of a termite infestation), and I became quite good at playing Guess-The-List-Price on trips around town.

After graduating from LMU’s College of Communication and Fine Arts with honors, I pursued a career in the nonprofit sector, specifically museums and historic homes, and studied animation part-time at DeAnza Community College. In 2020-2021, I took the opportunity to enter real estate full-time. I obtained my license and began to work alongside the best mentor, top-notch Realtor Mary.

I enjoy exploring the many communities and neighborhoods of the South Bay, studying the cares and concerns, new and old, of homeowners, and publishing quality content on the blogs. As a new agent, I am currently pursuing a NAR Green Designation and developing my expertise in historic homes, two of my passions.

Most of all, I look forward to working with Mary as a team to help even more nice folks to confidently buy and sell homes in Silicon Valley!
