I have been a Realtor since 1998 in the Pickens County area. My focus is on buyers and sellers of land and homes in the Pickens, East Dawson, Cherokee and Gilmer County areas. I also serve the Communities of Big Canoe and Bent Tree and Coosawattee River resort. An accredited Buyer's agent as well as a top listing agent, I emphasize frequent communication with my seller and Buyer clients, getting feedback from agents who show the property and letting my sellers know what I am doing to get their property SOLD and help the seller all the way to the closing table. I keep my Buyer clients informed of all property coming onto the market which meets their needs, be available to show property and help with the ENTIRE buying process all the way to the closing table. I enjoy working with first time buyers, and find it particularly rewarding to sell a home to a first time purchaser. I feel an special responsibility in helping the first time buyer to work our way through the homebuying process and find a good value in their first home. All Home and land Buyers deserve the best customer service which is what I strive to give. What I find rewarding is finding people homes or land they love! I love the satisfaction and excitement people share when we find the right home, the right piece of land. I like helping my buyers get a good deal, helping them negotiate their offer and then handling the details up to the closing. For Sellers, it's getting that one buyer to their home or tract of land, negotiating an acceptable deal for my sellers and then handling the details up to closing. The relief and appreciation that seller's have now after selling is so pronounced as so many are in a need to sell situation that it is even more rewarding than ever to help them get that property sold so they can move on with life! I also have life beyond real estate. College football, especially UT football games are something my husband and I share a passion for each fall. We love RV'ing with many friends we have made just through RV'ing. We like to travel on short trips seeing new things and meeting new people. My passion is volunteering for Pickens Animal Rescue. PAR for short. This organization is the only animal rescue in Pickens County. I have been involved for almost 20 years. Please feel free to read about PAR at www.pickensanimalrescue.org. I also love to read fiction, gardening and of course caring for and playing with all our rescue dogs and cats. If you want an agent who gives it 100% then call me. I look forward to working with you.

Maria is a terrific broker. She listened and understood what we were looking for and delivered a great property. She was very responsive and carefully explained all the details of the transaction. Maria was great to work with and I would recommend her to anyone looking for a property in Or around Jasper GA.

Bought a home in 2012 in Ruden, GA 30143.

Maria helped us find a second home in the Bent Tree community near Jasper, GA. We wanted a community that was close to Atlanta and would allow our families to enjoy the amenities and feel part of the community from day one.

Maria was very patient with us as we looked for many different amenities to come together in our home. She was flexible, positive and offered advice when asked. When we narrowed our choices down to 3, she helped with the negotiations and ultimate signing of the contract.  More Less
