About Me

As a Native Washingtonian and a resident of Northern Virginia since 1978, I was first licensed to sell Real Estate in 1984. I combine my unique experience in the fields of banking, lending, new home sales, and residential real estate to provide my purchasers and sellers with up to date knowledge and advice. My business philosophy is to meet or exceed my clients’ expectations by providing the best personalized service with the highest of ethical standards. My primary goal is to build lasting, long-term relationships with my clients.

While building my real estate clientele, I pursued a successful management career in commercial loan operations, achieving an Assistant Vice President position with First Virginia Bank (now BB&T). After leaving my career in banking, I joined a nationally renowned builder as a new home sales agent. Later, in 2000, I teamed with a small real estate company to offer boutique residential sales services. In January 2003, I joined another brokerage where I assisted buyers and sellers in the Northern Virginia area.

I am very pleased to be a part of C21Redwood Realty.

“As a first-time home buyer, I really didn't know what was out there. Mary Ellen helped me figure out exactly what I wanted and worked around the clock (and while on vacation!) until I finally found the perfect home. She made the process easy with prompt and helpful communication and went out of her way to cater to my needs. I 100% recommend Mary Ellen to anyone looking for a professional and caring realtor. ”

Mary Ellen was always available to answer concerns we had and to guide us through the process. Mary Ellen definitely is a top notch real estate professional and one I would recommend to friends looking to sell a house.

“Mary Ellen Rubenstein is professional and thorough. Her knowledge of the Reston area really showed as she worked with me to find a home that fit my needs. She was also friendly, approachable, and excellent at keeping in timely contact with me and the selling agent. While buying a home for the first time is fairly intimidating, Mary Ellen and Century 21 Redwood helped make the entire process approachable and helped me find a home I love.”
Mariet Kurtz, Reston (Buyer)
“We have been working with Mary Ellen since we moved to the area in 2014. She is an excellent agent and ALWAYS has the best interests of her clients at heart. She does an impeccable job communicating during all phases of the process and conducts all of her transactions in the most ethical manor! ”
Angela & Scott, Ashburn, VA (Buyer)
“Mary Ellen was a joy to work with- her attitude was positive and encouraging, relieving our anxieties about our house sale. She moved us efficiently through the process, was always professional, and looked out for our best interests. She took the time to explain everything along the way and was very proactive. She was always available and responsive to our questions. Mary Ellen represented Century 21 very well, and we knew she had the backing of a solid organization. On several occasions she consulted with her colleagues and this made us confident we were getting the best advice.”
Joe B, Reston, VA (Seller)
“We knew Mary Ellen previously and were very confident that she would be able to help move our property in the market place. Suzanne Parisi also deserves great credit in assisting with negotiations with the buyer's agent. It was great teamwork and both agents sold the home in 2 days. ”
Jeff & Debra Sylvern, North Carolina (Seller)
“This latest home purchase was our fifth transaction with Mary Ellen. She is always a pleasure to work with and we have great trust in her. She takes care of the property whether we are buying or selling as if she is our partner in the transaction and it feels as if she is a member of our family. This has been enormously helpful to us as we have often been away or were remote during the transactions. We are quite confident we will be working with Mary Ellen again on more real estate transactions in the future. We are becoming more interested in buying homes to restore and resell. Working with Mary Ellen gives us confidence in this potentially risky endeavor because we can trust her to help lead us in the right direction She demonstrates not only attention to detail but she also stays on top of all tasks relating to the mechanics of the transaction ensuring that everyone involved is doing what they're supposed to be doing in a timely manner. Her knowledge of service providers such as inspectors, contractors, cleaning crews, and so on is enormous helpful. There was never a time during any of our transactions with Mary Ellen that we encountered anything less than outstanding service. She has a very pleasant demeanor and is a joy to have as our partner during the purchase process. ”
Rosemarie and Myron Rosmarin, Leesburg, VA (Buyer)
“Mary Ellen was a great resource and incredibly helpful. As first-time homebuyers, we had no idea where to start, and she made finding and buying a home so easy for us. Mary Ellen was a blessing. She was very patient and knowledgeable about the area, housing code (for example, we saw several houses that advertised a "bedroom" that wasn't a legal bedroom), resale value, and updates that a house might need. Mary Ellen was very professional and on top of all the details related to the contract and contingencies. We really enjoyed working with Mary Ellen and think very highly of her. We'd highly recommend her and would definitely hire her again if we buy or sell in the future. ”
Kate Bowerman, Reston, VA (Buyer)
“Mary Ellen Rubenstein is an agent with a "can do" attitude who was readily available and always found a way to make things happen without any hesitation. She was calm, efficient and friendly, always taking the time to give us feedback after every showing and was quick to follow up at all times. There was nothing left undone. Her professionalism went a long way in assuring us through every step of the process of selling our home!”
Jim and Julie Kowalski, Oakton VA (Seller)
