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 was responsive, patient, personable and very professional. She has tremendous knowledge of the Chicago area. She manages the process expertly, from initial consultation through closing. She made sure my home was at its best when she put it on the market. I would recommend Maria highly.

As I first-time home buyer, I needed an agent that would endure the pain of educating me, and Maria was absolutely perfect. Her knowledge and experience in the field fully equipped me for the process of purchasing my first home! She was kind, patient, honest, attentive to my needs, and understood the sense of urgency in the home buying process. Before working with her, I had been searching with another agent for over 6 months. Maria was able help me close a deal in less than half that time, even after switching lenders in the process. My experience with her was stellar, and I consider myself fortunate that I discovered her! I would definitely refer her to anyone searching for an agent. She is a gem and an ultimate professional!

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.
