I worked with Mariam for almost 2 years trying to find a suitable home in State College, and she was a consummate professional. Living so far away, it was difficult to look at properties consistently, and so we would arrange several hour long viewings when we were in town, and she was always on time, well prepared, and gave very honest information about the homes. Even after long periods of inactivity in our search, she still remembered right where we left off. She was incredibly patient with us, but was also able to quickly react and work with us to get offers submitted (even working on a Sunday late into the night to get an offer submitted on an open house we'd just attended). The market in State College is a little intimidating since properties typically don't last long, but Mariam has a great understanding of pricing, demand, and other keys to locking in the perfect home for the right price. Mariam was an absolute pleasure to work with. She truly understands State College real estate, is well connected with other agents, and from our observations and feedback from the title insurance company, she is clearly highly respected by others in the real estate industry. If you are looking for a patient, honest, personable, hard-working, and knowledgeable real estate agent, Mariam Lowe is the way to go.
My wife and I highly recommend working with Mariam! She is very responsive, thorough, and dedicated to making the home buying and selling process easy for her clients.
Mariam made our home buying experience very smooth. She negotiated wonderfully and guided us through our entire process from start to finish. Her understanding of the market was key. She is a true real estate professional and a joy to work with. She went above and beyond for us! We will use her and again and would definitely recommended her.
My experience with Mariam Lowe has been truly amazing! We hit it off over the phone and I knew I would love working with her. She was a pleasure to work with. I’m over 3 hours away from State College, PA. She went above and beyond for us realizing we’d be traveling a distance to look at the townhouse. We purchased it in one day and she handled everything afterwards. It was so refreshing to find someone with her work ethic and personality! We hit it off right from the start. She just sold our townhouse and once again I got to experience the easiest closing ever! She makes her job look easy but behind the scenes she is working on all the details. I’m actually going to miss her;( I trusted her with my keys and my garage code, she is #1 in my book. I am very detail oriented and can be a little OCD. I never worried about anything working with Mariam. She was always one step ahead of everyone else! If you’re looking for a Realtor in the area of State College and the surrounding towns, Mariam is your girl! Don’t waste your time calling anyone else. You will not regret it, trust me!
Mariam was amazing to work with! She is professional, patient, very fast on responses and knows the business well! We couldn’t have asked for a better realtor. We would recommend her to anyone!
Being a first time home buyer, Mariam was very attentive and prompt to my needs. I appreciated her knowledge and guidance through the entire process. I couldn’t have had a better agent! Highly recommend!
Mariam has been helpful in every stage of our process, from setting up appointments to view houses to negotiating with our sellers and leading us through the paperwork. She has responded quickly and well to every question and request we have had. We recommended her highly and without reservation.
Mariam Lowe and RE/MAX Centre Realty helped our dreams come true. Mariam has gone above and beyond to help us out, whether it was working with the sellers to negotiate our needs, or finding us local services. We are thrilled with Mariam and with RE/MAX Centre Realty, and we love our new home.
Mariam was awesome. She was extremely professional and knowledgeable. Mariam helped us find a perfect home and then helped us sell when the time came. We could not have asked for a better realtor.
Mariam is awesome !! She works right along with you the whole way and works any minute of the day for you. She is available 24/7 and will get back to you immediately. I wouldn’t have anyone else represent me. She was my buyer agent and selling agent on separate accounts. I highly recommend her 200%!!!
It was great working with Mariam. She was very fast to respond to emails, even late at night. I was a first-time home-buyer and she guided me through the whole process. She was especially helpful during the process of making an offer, which was a bit stressful since there was a competing offer. She also negotiated requests for some repairs on the house.
Mariam was nothing short of amazing. As first time home buyers we had no clue where to start. She was thorough and always quickly answered our questions. We used a VA loan and Mariam was knowledgeable of thr process and guided us seamlessly. I would definitely recommend her to anyone!
Mariam made our home buying experience positive. She worked very hard to find us a perfect house. She was very responsive and attentive. She was so helpful-she even came to the appointment at the builder's office to help us pick finishes and make sure what was in our contract. She was very professional. I would highly recommend working with her.
Mariam Lowe was our agent for the purchase of our first home a few years ago and now for the purchase of our second home recently. I can't say enough about how helpful she has been in guiding us through this process. She is friendly, very responsive to any type of communication, and knowledgeable. The bidding process for our recent purchase was very competitive, and if it wasn't for Mariam's suggestions for ways to make our offer more competitive, I'm certain we would not be moving into our dream home this week. She also is an agent who has her clients' best interest in mind. She was always looking out for us to try to make sure we got a good deal, even without any prompting from us. I'd highly recommend her!
My wife and I worked with Mariam Lowe as our agent. She was very attentive to our desires and our needs and worked very well with us to find a good home in a great location that matched our budget. After the desired home was found, Mariam really excelled our expectations by making the process as straightforward for us as possible. We had the added complication of having to first sell our prior home in Maryland prior to going to closing on our new home in Pennsylvania and Mariam handled these additional complications effortlessly. I would absolutely recommend Mariam and the Lowe team anytime!
Mariam helped my husband and I purchase our first home, and she was wonderful to work with! She answered any questions we had very quickly and thoroughly. Mariam got us in to see homes as soon as possible after we expressed interest, and helped us understand not only the process but the details involved with various things we saw in different houses. When we found a home we really wanted, Mariam got it for us and made the whole process as painless as possible. She even filled out forms, sent contracts to us, etc. far well after normal working hours (and on weekends) as soon as they came in from the seller. She is very professional and friendly, and we would both recommend her to anyone.
Mariam Lowe of the Lowe real estate team recently served as our buyer's agent for the purchase of our new home. Mariam was fantastic to work with and she helped us to successfully negotiate and purchase our home in a very competitive, "seller's market." Mariam provided valuable insight into the local area which helped us "out of town-ers" find the perfect home for our family. Just as important as her knowledge and professionalism is that Mariam was always patient and just a very pleasant person to work with. We would recommend that anyone looking to purchase a new home contact Mariam for assistance.
We worked with Mariam, part of the Lowe team, to find our home. She did a great job setting up showings right away, and was with us through every step of the negotiation process. She even went out of her way after closing to help us follow through on some important details that new homeowners can run into. The Lowes are very professional and thorough and Mariam was a delight to work with! We love our home and are grateful that she helped us find the perfect one.
We were extremely pleased with Miriam Lowe assisting us as a buyers agent in locating and purchasing a property in State College, PA. for our son. We worked with Miriam over several months to find the perfect property. She is very patient and well organized. I found Miriam to be an exceptional agent. Miriam made the entire process virtually effortless on our part. We would highly recommend her to anyone in need of real estate services.
Mariam was awesome in working with us. She was incredibly knowledgeable about the local market and told us when we were looking at houses that were overpriced a bit. She was great about finding comps so we could put in a competitive but fair offer, and when it came to negotiations she had our back the entire time! She helped us find a house that was absolutely perfect for us! We couldn't be more happy!!!
Mariam Lowe was amazing. She had knowledgeable answers to our questions throughout the process. When it came time to negotiate, she used that knowledge to lobby hard for what we wanted. Once we were under contract, she handled absolutely everything that didn't require our express involvement. Looking forward to working with her again!
After over 25 years of paying two night minimums at escalating prices for local hotel accommodations while attending various Penn State functions, we contacted Lowe's RE/MAX Centre Realty to inquire into buying opportunities in the State College area. To our delight we were connected with Mariam Lowe. Mariam took the time to listen and understand what we were looking for. She held our hands through the process of evaluating options and was extremely accommodating to our schedule as we visited State College throughout the Fall. Eventually we found a property that met our needs. Mariam proved to be a very effective experienced negotiator on our behalf. She continued to manage all the closing details, right up to actual document signing and us receiving the keys and the "infamous" Lowe Blanket. Even after closing Mariam continues to provide us support with local painter and electrician recommendations. Our experience with Lowe's RE/MAX Centre Realty was nothing short of exceptional and we highly recommend anyone interested in buying in the State College area to contact Linda & Ryan. You can't go wrong with their team!
Mariam was just the best! She dealt with the trauma while shielding us from it until it was over. She was always available to us and, while it is always stressful to buy a new home, she made it fun! AND ( I wish I had video) she cleans stainless steel!
Thanks for everything Mariam! Our place is perfect!
We had such a wonderful experience working with Mariam Lowe to buy our new house. We were living out of state and she was very accommodating with being able to get us multiple showings when we were in the area. Once we found the one we wanted she helped us get everything together and negotiated a great price for our "forever" home. We were so fortunate to find such a wonderful house that had everything we wanted in the State College School District and can't thank her enough. We would definitely recommend working with Mariam to anyone who is in the market for a new house!

My agent was a Mariam Lowe. I would be more than willing to recommend her to anyone. As a first time home buyer, I did not have any experience with working with an agent. My father however has bought and sold not only homes but businesses and was also impressed with Miraim. I had many questions going through this process and I asked them whenever they came to me. Mairam was very prompt in replying, even on nights and weekends. I could not asked for anything more from a realtor. Mariam made the experience as stress free as possible for me. Great job Mariam!
Being first time home buyers, my girlfriend and I had little experience with the real estate transfer process and it seemed daunting at first, but Mariam Lowe went out of her way to make sure we truly understood every step along the way and ended up with the perfect home.
When we first met her, Mariam gave off a warm vibe and was very personable, but also very down-to-business and professional. Mariam was prompt, early to all showings, knowledgeable of the properties, and most importantly, completely honest and open about all property information. She was engaged in understanding what my girlfriend and I truly wanted in a home, and cared that we end up in the right home, rather than just a home.
When we had found the right home, we put an offer on it, but another offer came in at the same time. Mariam was not afraid to be a bit aggressive in order to secure the acceptance of our offer, sweetening the deal for the seller while keeping our financial concerns in mind. She informed us of her strategy and, of course, asked our permission to be a bit more aggressive. Finding our offer more attractive, the seller decided to work with us instead of the other potential buyer. Mariam managed to make all of this happen late on a Friday night, well beyond normal office hours.
Once the offer was accepted, she actively kept me aware of deadlines and guided me through the financial aspects of securing the transaction, acquiring a mortgage, and handling negotiations and closing costs. Mariam provided us with plenty of local options for home inspectors, loan providers, and attorneys and her recommendations were top-notch.
During the buyer/seller negotiation phase, Mariam took it upon herself to ensure the seller was fair. In fact, she convinced the seller to cover more than we had originally expected them to. After a couple rounds of negotiation, Mariam was able to convince the seller to fully replace a broken water heater, replace a tub pump, and get a furnace servicing. She also made sure the association we were to become a part of fixed a drainage issue. All of this with minimal effort from us, but plenty of communication from Mariam to us.
Mariam was wonderful even after closing. She surprised us with flowers and a high quality blanket to welcome us to our new home, and she provided us with a rental truck, free of charge, to help us move in.
In conclusion, I highly recommend Mariam Lowe as a buyer agent. She was insightful, responsive, professional, and made it her mission to get us moved into the place we now happily call home.
As a first time buyer I wasn't quite sure what I was getting into. Mariam Lowe guided me through the process from start to finish. She helped me find the perfect house for me, kept me in the loop regarding the process, and made sure I had everything I was required to do submitted correctly and on time. Every question I had was promptly answered and every concern was looked into and resolved.
I highly recommend Mariam as a buyer's agent!
Working with Mariam was a class act...she became like family..Very concerned with the process, my moving issues, finance...etc...Simply does not get better than this..Her and HER TEAM are an unbeatable force to be reckoned with...they know the area, the market and the people.
Mariam is a great buyer's agent! She was patient throughout the process and coached us when we were struggling to make decisions. She was very responsive and clearly has a strong work ethic. Her professionalism, knowledge, persistence and negotiation skills helped us purchase a beautiful home!
My husband and I were getting discouraged through our first-home search process until we were referred to Mariam Lowe of the Linda & Ryan Lowe Team. Mariam took our search seriously and wasn't afraid to tell us if a house wouldn't be ideal for us. She responded very quickly to my frequent emails, texts, and calls regarding potential homes (and especially throughout the closing process) and wouldn't hesitate to meet us during evening hours to show homes after our work. Mariam helped us find our perfect first-home in our desired neighborhood at a great negotiated price. We love our house and are very happy making our personal touches. Thank you to the Lowe team for not only letting us use the moving truck,the beautiful blanket and the roses, but for treating us right and showing us homes that you would feel okay showing your own family.
Mariam was very patient with a first-time home buyer and guided me through the entire process. She provided me all the information necessary to make informed decisions. If only the loan process was as efficient as her.
We recently purchased a home through Mariam Lowe. Mariam was professional, efficient, and quickly responded to our questions and needs. A smooth and seamless transaction was obtained. We will use the Lowe team for any future real estate transactions.
Experience was great. Mariam was very helpful and enjoyable to work with. She was always available and very patient with our decision making. I purchased my home through Linda and Ryan Lowe and if the time ever came to sell I would again choose them to list our home.
Mariam was, in a word, GREAT! She kept us up to date with all potential homes we were interested in and wasn't afraid to offer her own opinion to help guide us along the way when necessary. She was always available to us, even outside of "normal" business hours" - which was good for us, since that was when WE had the time to turn our attention to the home buying process. We were from out of town, and Mariam was able to tee everything up for us to make our trips to State College as productive as possible -- from well timed/organized showings to a very smooth settlement process. We couldn't be happier. In fact, we have already had Mariam help us with the purchase of a piece of land and subsequent home on that land.
Mariam was awesome - and very patient :) - in helping us find the perfect home. We looked at tons of houses, and she was bound and determined to find the right fit for us. She's also SUPER responsive and was willing to help us with her honest opinions when asked. Even though selling our old home was a nightmare (not by any fault of the Lowe team), I would absolutely use this team again.
