Our first impressions of Maria were that she was friendly and professional. We felt she was genuinely interested in our opinions, feedback, and interests and offered her honest professional advice. We hired Maria first as our Buyer’s Agent, and then without any hesitation, as our Listing Agent. As our Buyer’s Agent, we were thoroughly impressed with Maria’s knowledge of the communities where we searched. For us, the location was of the essence. Maria was on the mission to find us the perfect house in a highly competitive real estate market. In doing so, she literally knocked on doors, sent letters to target neighborhoods, and communicated with other real estate agents in order to help us succeed in finding the ideal home for our needs. Maria stayed within our budget, never tried to upsell us, and did not pressure us to look at properties with features we did not want. When it came to presenting an offer, Maria provided us with the competitive market analysis data for the property so we were able to put our best foot forward in making an offer without feeling as though we may have over-offered nor under-offered. She assisted us in negotiating (in our opinion) a complimentary and fair offer for our “forever” home. We couldn’t have been happier! We chose to continue to work with Maria as our Listing Agent. Maria was truly dedicated and exceptional in helping us to present our home. She guided us in the whole process from minor updates to de-cluttering and staging. As our Listing Agent, Maria hosted regular open houses and had direct contact with potential buyers (and eventually our actual buyers) which enabled her to give us constant feedback and updates throughout the transaction and insight into the Buyers’ motivation. Maria knows the market and does her research regularly to understand the trends, she shares the research and is direct in her feedback. Overall, working with Maria was an absolute pleasure. She’s incredibly timely, knowledgeable, and responsive. We would highly recommend working with Maria both as a Buyer’s Agent as well as a Listing Agent!

Maria was so patient with us from day one. We arrived at our showing (which is now our new home) and Maria took the time to show us throughout the house, point out upgrades and disclosures, and answer all of our questions. Then she was kind enough to stay late and also show our parents the home when we asked them to come to take a look! Maria was helpful and knowledgeable without being pushy. As we went forward with the process, which can be overwhelming - Maria was present and available with anything we needed, from help with our mortgage to home inspections to questions we had in regards to the septic. She really went above and beyond and made us feel as though we were priority clients. When we were finally able to close, which was organized quickly for us by Maria, we were able to look back on the whole process with a real feeling of relief. We had a real estate professional in our corner from day one until the very end that had our best interests at heart, took our concerns seriously, that made us feel important. We live in the house of our dreams and Maria not only helped get that for us, but she made it a quick, painless process. We were so impressed with Maria, that we asked her to represent our old home when we decided to sell it. Once again, she made us a priority and treated our old home as though it was her only focus. She made great suggestions on how to decorate, how to price, and how to position our home in order to sell it in the time frame and at the price we were hoping for. She set up multiple open houses and made a beautiful website for our home. Our place sold within two weeks at a price that we were ecstatic over! I can't say enough nice things about Maria. She really made both buying and selling an easy process for us and we were left with a delightful experience to look back on and a beautiful home to look forward to! I will continue to work with and refer Maria for years to come!

And I am glad to say that our experience was the same. Maria is wonderful to work with. She has very good knowledge of the real estate market and the neighborhood (especially the Metro west area) and various towns. She is always working with you and for you. She is super responsive and is always available to help. One time she even worked with us to meet on a Sunday evening right after she got back into town from a vacation, to accommodate our schedule. There never was an instance that she did not get back to us on any kind of question we had. And her list of professional contacts for all kinds of things was super helpful to us as first-time home buyers, from home inspectors, environmental inspectors, radon testers to handymen, cleaners, everything! When you work with her, you can make out that she always has your interests in mind, works with you to find the home that you want, gives good professional advice, works with you in negotiating offers, and goes that extra mile in making sure everything is to your liking. Highly recommend her to anyone who is looking to buy or sell a house.

My husband and I were very particular buyers-in fact, our search was centered on a specific neighborhood in a specific town. I was not very optimistic that we would be able to find a home that worked for our family with such parameters. Maria proved me wrong! She was able to find us our dream home and we could not be more thrilled. At the same time, Maria sold the home we were living in record time! Buying and selling a home simultaneously can be extremely stressful, but Maria was able to make the process much more manageable for our family. In addition to being an incredibly knowledgeable Realtor®, she also connected us with reputable workers such as plumbers, electricians, movers, and HVAC specialists. Maria is a true gem and I would wholeheartedly recommend her to anybody looking to buy or sell their home.

I'll start by saying she is honest which when buying and selling a home, is paramount. She was extremely flexible with our ever-changing schedule and even more so with our ever-changing home buying situation. Her knowledge of the market, network, and creative marketing all lead to a multiple offer situation on our home sale. Then, her superior relationship building and negotiating lead to the seller of our new home agreeing to our home sale contingency, in a seller's market (I'm not in real estate, and even I know, this is huge). From looking at homes all the way through closing, Maria offered unparalleled guidance. Her job with us still hasn't ended as we continue to contact her months later to tap into her extensive list of contractors! Maria is fabulous and truly the best partner you could have when buying, selling, or both!

I called her as soon as I decided that I wanted to buy a house and due to her attention to detail, and responsiveness we were able to find our dream home in two months! As a brand new home buyer, there were several times that decided that I had to see a home immediately, and Maria was there with her honest opinion. She saved me from putting an offer on places that weren't what we needed. Maria encouraged us to keep looking for something that was a better fit when I easily could have put an offer down on something that was just okay. I never thought that I would have such a pleasant experience buying a home, and I know that anyone reading this review who reaches out to her will feel the same way!
