“Maria was a joy to work with and made buying our first home an absolute breeze. She got our showings scheduled super fast, coordinated offers and did an amazing job with closing. Can’t recommend her enough!”

“Maria helped me buy a condo a few years ago. I wasn’t sure if I was ready to pull the trigger, but I also was only interested in one building, and especially a south-facing unit on floors 2-4 of that building (I am not comfortable with heights). Firstly, Maria helped me hone in on what floors I was comfortable with by showing me a variety of units on different low floors. When a unit came on the following week in my preferred location in the building, I was hesitant. Maria ran metrics, by pulling comps, to see how often a unit like this would come up. She determine about once every four years. Not only did she tell me this but she showed me through data. I never felt pressured, but rather I was able to see for myself that I needed to buy that unit. I am so happy I did as no other unit has come up. Highly Recommend!”

It is really hard to describe this ‘X Factor,’ but I am extremely grateful that I found it in Maria. I definitely plan on doing business with her for years to come!”

With my gained confidence and Maria’s resources and assistance, I was able to close on a second house a year later! She was extremely attentive to my needs, criteria, and feedback. I was able to get a hold of her without a problem. When I was closing on this house, there was an issue with the financing at the closing table due to technicalities on the bank’s end. Usually, when there are issues this late in the process, it makes it less likely that the buyer will close. However, she was able to mediate with the sellers to keep the deal alive and had connections and resources that were able to fix the paperwork issues within the hour. I was able to close on my second property!

“I am a real estate investor and I have been working with Maria for the past 3 years. I have worked with several others in the past, but Maria is a step above the rest! When I was buying my first house, I was stressed out during the process. I can attest to her extensive market knowledge and empathy. She held my hand through every step of the process and provided the necessary resources to get the deal done. By the end of it all, I felt like I had gained a friend and a mentor.

“Maria was amazing! She negotiated the maximum amount of seller concession I could have gotten, and she was able to get me under contract quickly in a chaotic market.”
