My real estate career began innocently enough. I just wanted to learn about buying and selling property to protect myself from being cheated or taken advantage of. I then went on to get my salesman/broker licenses, hosted buyer/seller seminars, got involved in rehabbing, became a property manager, and now have come full circle, using my skills to help buyers and sellers with their property needs.

My real estate career began innocently enough. I just wanted to learn about buying and selling property to protect myself from being cheated or taken advantage of. I then went on to get my salesman/broker licenses, hosted buyer/seller seminars, got involved in rehabbing, became a property manager, and now have come full circle, using my skills to help buyers and sellers with their property needs. I LOVE real estate! To this day I cannot explain the excitement of passing property without seeing its potential of fulfilling someone's dream of ownership. I truly find it an exciting challenge to be part of the process. less

Maria knows her business! All I knew was that I wanted to buy a 2 flat home for my growing family. She was easy to talk too and a good listener. I told Maria what I wanted and she would be right on in providing my wishes, when possible. But being new at the whole thing I went back and forth on this house and that. I turned down a house after weeks of negotiations, only to go back to it a few days later. I assure you I wasn't a easy client but Maria never changed from her sweet, patient and understanding manner. We developed a great relationship. She shared many of her experiences with me on a lot of different real estate issues and made suggestions but she never tried to force her opinions on me at anytime. Maria amazed me with her knowledge of real estate and she introduce me to other professionals, at my request, who helped me through the process of buying my first home. Be sure to pick Maria's brain, you won't be sorry. I felt I was in "Good Hands" from day one. At closing I received more than I ever expected. Thank you Maria for making everything so easy. I love my new home.

Maria was extremely knowledgeable about all aspects of the real estate process and her customer service skills exceeded our expectations. She did an exceptional job helping us purchase our home. Our new home is everything we were looking for, and we were able to find it thanks to Maria. As first time home buyers, Maria quickly and professionally responded to all questions we had, making sure we knew everything we needed throughout the entire process. Every step of the way, Maria was a great source of knowledge and information. We would DEFINITELY recommend her services to anyone looking for a kind, knowledgeable, and down to earth person to assist them in their home buying experience.
