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

I was very satisfied with Maria's service. She has great communication skills with attention to details and responsiveness. She stayed on top of every issue or concern and that was greatly appreciated.
