Introduction: 1. I have a passion to help people downsize to get ready for a transition to a new home. Listing your home is an option, but not a pre-requisite. 2. I have decades of experience, providing advise, support, and hands-on assistance. I have hundreds of clients who I have helped with design and remodeling, downsizing during a transition or move, and real estate sales for buyers and sellers. With MT Nesting, LLC, I focus on downsizing and transitioning to a new home.

Just fantastic! We hit it off immediately, which helps if you are working alongside someone in your own home. Mary can also size up situations quickly and keep the project moving. I very much look forward to completing my work with her!

We are so glad that we went with ColorScapes to have our kitchen backsplash installed. Mary was able to get it done on a lower budget( compared to Home depot )even without having to compromising on the quality of work or the materials! She got it done on time as promised and even went out of her way to help me with other odd jobs at home. Thank you Mary!

I worked with Mary regarding counter and floor upgrades in my kitchen. She offered good ideas and provided sources for competent & respected suppliers/installers of material. I appreciated that she was cognizant of my budget constraints when making her recommendations. Mary is knowledgeable and easy to work with.

Mary is a godsend! I could not have done my kitchen and bathroom remodeling project without her. Mary is very knowledgeable about the entire remodeling process from start to finish. She really tunes in to what I want and goes the extra mile to get the details right. She has excellent communication skills, and it is a pleasure working with her. I highly recommend Mary and ColorScapes Design!

We are relatively new homeowners who consulted Mary for design advice for our living room. She offered helpful ideas for layout, lighting, and where we might look to find affordable furniture. After our initial 2-hour consult, Mary continued to help us look for pieces and to offer suggestions.
Mary Tracy Homes's reply
Krista, Noah and I had a successful first meeting where we moved furniture around, created a vision for two walls to be built to solve organization issues, solved lighting issues, and more. We accomplished a lot. As I had indicated to Krista before meeting, it is not possible to choose actual furniture in this initial meeting given these other issues which needed to be solved. Deciding on exact pieces to purchase usually takes shopping online or visiting local venues. I am looking forward to helping with this in the future within a second meeting or online search together. Great couple and great home, but their expectations on what could be accomplished in two hours was not realistic and resulted in my getting a 4 star instead of a 5 star.

FAQs

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    1. I charge $75 per hour. 1.5 -2 hr increments. Includes: Downsizing support, direction, packing, sorting, contacting resources, managing a move and other related services. Also assisting families on options related to moving to senior living.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    It is important to have a short chat by phone, text, or email before scheduling an appointment. A tour of the home may be necessary. Charges are prepaid for 2 hrs once an appointment is scheduled. Arrangements can be made to pay at beginning of home visit also.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I have worked with over a thousand homeowners for 3 decades with home project management to downsize, arrange space, stage, decorate, paint, support a move, and list a home. Clients can work with me by the hour to downsize without listing a home. I can list a home if and when the time comes to sell/move. My former company was ColorScapes, as you see in some reviews. I now go by MT-Nesting and Mary Tracy Homes. I have a real estate license. I have a SRES designation which is a 50+ Seniors Real Estate Specialist which focused on this age group that is transitioning to a smaller family home structure.
