About Mary

About Mary Pope-Handy, Los Gatos real estate agent, Silicon Valley Realtor

Mary Pope-Handy, Oct 2015Briefest of bios:  I 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.  My husband and I live in Los Gatos.  In my free time I enjoy travel, writing, photography, family get togethers, walking in my neighborhood and keeping in touch with friends.

There’s TONS of info about me on my sites, for those who’d like more info:

About Mary’s territory:

I am licensed to sell throughout the state of California, but don’t usually go more than 45 minutes in any direction from my east Los Gatos home or downtown Los Gatos office.  I do sell homes of all types (houses, duet homes, townhouses, condominiums and duplexes-fourplexes) and price ranges in Santa Clara County (San Jose, Los Gatos, Saratoga, Campbell, Monte Sereo, Cupertino and nearby) and sometimes beyond, covering Silicon Valley generally – though usually just the “South Bay” and parts close to Los Gatos, Cambrian, Almaden, Willow Glen and nearby.  Below please find a map of many of my sales to provide a visual cue as to my areas of concentration.

And here’s a closer-in view of Santa Clara County less the “south county” areas of Morgan Hill and Gilroy:

As you can see, I have experience all over, but my concentration is closest to Los Gatos, Cambrian (area of San Jose), Almaden, Campbell, Saratoga and then beyond that it’s pretty equally scattered throughout the county.  I was born in San Jose, raised in Santa Clara and Saratoga and know the area like the local that I am – so can work anywhere in this area to assist you in selling or buying residential real estate.
