Sold a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $225K in Eastside-ENACT, Tacoma, WA.
Maria did a great job selling our home in Tacoma. She provided several comps to help us determine listing/selling price, gave us excellent advice about staging (even provided some accessories that "finished" the look), was quick to respond to our phone calls & email, and negotiated assertively through the selling process on our behalf. Maria clearly was working for us! She is friendly without being overbearing or pushy, and easy to work with. Maria is familiar with the area from Tacoma to Snohomish and beyond. We will definitely call Maria when we are ready to buy our next place.
she seemed like a nice lady. when she arrived at the condo to be sold she really did not seem to energetic or enthusiactic about selling the place. she also did not come very well prepared and only burned off one comp. that i had already saw online. so i was disappointed. however, maybe it was just a bad hair day so i would not judge this on one meeting.
(she also seemed lack lustered about e-mail inquires and never bothered to call to be freindly or to follow up .... so maybe there is bigger fish to fry out there for her rather than a small condo sale i guess.)
Sold a Single Family home in 2013 in Mount Washington, Baltimore, MD.
We were having to deal with a property owned by a family member that passed away leaving no will. We live 3000 miles away and found Maria thru the insurance agent that handled the property insurance.
We did not realize that she was a real gem, a diamond in the rough. She was efficient and helped over some rough spots, dealing with many local agencies. The property was sold in six months, with Maria acting as if we were local customers.
Bought a Other home in 2011 in North Rose Hill, Kirkland, WA.
Over the past decade and a half, Maria has helped find the property that my parents (year 2000 and prior), my brother (2012) and I (2011) currently own. She is wonderful to work with and I couldn't be happier with her service!
Bought a Single Family home in 2011 for approximately $325K in Everett, WA.
Maria was wonderful. We were new to the area and Maria took the time to not only show us houses but to be our guide to the area. We traveled far and wide and Maria was with us every step of the way. She understood our vision and gently steered us in the right direction. We couldn’t be happier with the results. Maria has our highest recommendation.

Maria demonstrates keen listening skills. Because she understood exactly the type of property we were looking for, she saved us time by selecting specific properties which met our criteria. She is also very personable, professional and easy to work with.
Sold a Single Family home in 1999 for approximately $175K in Kent, WA.
For the past 13 years Maria has been great. She is always knowledgable on what is going on with the housing market. We about our home 13 years ago with Maria and we sure gave her the run for her money, but she was always professional. We have sent other people to her and she was also really great with them.
Maria has been terrific showing us vacation homes in the Cle Elum area. She has spent many weekends driving us around Leavenworth, Ronald, & Roslyn along with homes in Cle Elum helping us to find a home exactly what we are wanting. Even though we have not yet found a house, her search has never ended. Maria has been terrific in this process so far. I know we, my husband and I, with Maria's helop will soon find a home we are looking for.
Sold a Single Family home in 2000 for approximately $175K in Des Moines, WA.
This review refers to properties purchased and sold between 2000 - 2011 (from a 1 bedroom condominium to a luxary waterfront property)
My husband and I have worked with Maria on 4 seperate occasions over the past 11 years. She helped us sell my condo and buy our home in 2001, we purchased 2 condos in 2009, 2010, and in 2011 she helped us sell my mother's waterfront home in Bellingham. She was able to market in such a way, that we received 2 solid offers in the first 2 days! I will explain the details. We will not work with anyone other than Maria Riggins.
We originally found Maria through a property we were interested in for our new home, back in 2000. Her knowledge and availability stood out immediately. Maria was there for us. I can't express this enough. It underscores who she is. She gave us honest advice and clear instructions as needed. She even arrived in the evening, flashlight in hand, to help us. She made the purchase easy. It was a small 1800 sq ft home; yet Maria made us feel like we were her most important clients. She has been a pleasure to work with, each and every time.
In 2011, Maria helped us sell my mother's 3500+ sq ft waterfront home, on the Chuckanut. She traveled back and forth from Seattle, without any hestiation. She met with my 87 year old mother and helped her through the process of 'letting go' of her home. Maria has business savvy, integrity, energy, caring and a positive outlook on life. Maria walked through the house and let us know what we needed to accomplish, in order to show the house to it's best advantage, weeks before placing on the market. Her attention to detail was brilliant. She staged the home, helped me fix sliding doors, and knew exactly how to market the house. The photographs she had taken were amazing. She created a video which had over 4000 viewings in the first 2 days, alone. By end of day two, in this terrible market, we had 2 solid offers for her home. We sold to an International buyer who purchased for cash, at our price (no negotiations) and closed within 30 days. It was Brilliant marketing by Maria, which accomplished this feat!
In 2009 and 2010, Maria took the time out of her busy schedule to help us purchase condominiums for 2 of our son's. These were small real estate purchases; yet, Maria was as available, helpful and thorough, as always. She helped one son with a short sale, making it all feel seamless. On the second purchase, my other son was interested in 3 different counties. Maria tirelessly met with me to see several different properties in various locations. Once again, her magic flashlight was needed, and all these years later, she still carries one in her car, just in case.
Maria Riggins is professional and honest. She will provide exceptional service to anyone who commissions her for thier purchase and/or sale agreements.
