It is an honour to provide this reference letter for Mary Ellen Maasik. I am Vice President, Legal, for Weyerhaeuser and my husband is Chief Financial Officer for Ivanhoe. We have known Mary Ellen for approximately nineteen years. When my husband and I decided to buy a house in Vancouver, several friends and neighbours recommended and provided the most glowing comments about her abilities. All of what we heard about Mary Ellen was true and, with Mary Ellen’s able assistance, we have now bought two houses and sold one, with excellent results. Each transaction was a pleasure- Mary Ellen did all the hard work, allowing us to focus getting moved and settled.
I have recommended Mary Ellen often to others and without exception she has achieved the same good results for them. Mary Ellen is hard-working, discrete, focused, strategic, professional and tenacious. She has a simply wonderful way with people and a sound understanding of the legal, regulatory and financial aspects of real estate transactions. Her enthusiasm for her work and community are inspiring.
