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 has been in the business for a long time and knows the Chicago area very well. She was very responsive and helped us through the whole process every step of the way.

I cannot say enough good things about Maria! She worked with us off and on for almost five years to find our new home, never pressuring us to just buy already and even cautioning us against several problematic deals. Thanks to her patience and knowledge, we finally found and bought our dream home! I would recommend her 1000%.
