Maria Sabio began her career in the real estate and financing industry nearly 12 years ago. As a financing professional, she quickly rose to become one of the most knowledgeable and successful mortgage experts in South Florida, serving as Director of Sales and Marketing for a national mortgage lender.
As managing partner of Captiva Financial Group, she was helping homeowners through the negotiation of short sales and foreclosures long before the industry ever recognized the need for the expertise.
Maria is co-host of the popular radio program American Dream Home Show. Her knowledge of the industry was acquired not just through years of education, but through real life experiences and hard work, which she now shares freely with the public. She thoroughly enjoys guiding experienced as well as first-time homeowners through this difficult housing market.
How do you help buyers to find the right properties for them?
The best way to find the right house is by knowing what the "must" and "wish" list are for the individual or the family. Then having the buyer speak with a mortgage professional to determine the budget. Once we have these basics we can start selecting an area, a school district and the right home.

How do you make sure buyers get the best price for the property they are interested in?
Buyers should always have the neighboring comparable home values before determining the initial offer. After this is reviewed we can make sure we aren''''t over paying for a house.

What do you do to help market the properties your clients are selling?
Marketing aggressively both online and internationally is now key.

What do you recommend sellers do to make sure their selling process is smooth?
Don''''t let small fixes delay the sale of the house. Get the small things done so that the inspections go smoothly. Second disclose what you know.

Ratings & Reviews

Maria was very patient in helping us buy our first home. She did an amazing job at keeping our emotions in check and was very professional with us. This process can get very tiresome at times and very personal and Maria was there for us all the time. She explained everything with patience and professionalism. She looked out for our best interest.
