Maria Babaev is the elite broker representing luxury properties on the North Shore of Long Island. She brings a refreshing perspective to the business of residential real estate. Her many years working on Wall Street, along with the impressive network of clients she has cultivated, both locally and abroad,  has enabled Maria to represent unique Gold Coast estates and bring buyers and sellers of luxury properties together.

 

Maria is adept at strategizing the most complex negotiations, while maintaining a strong work ethic and compassionate nature. Maria has remained a highly sought after authority on residential real estate, especially on the Gold Coast and within the international community. Speaking fluent Russian, Maria has served as liaison to numerous Russian brokers and developed a highly respected pipeline of foreign investors, buyers of luxury residences for vacation homes and real estate investment purposes.  Given her widespread knowledge of the North Shore's most prominent villages, towns and enclaves, she delivers invaluable guidance to this exclusive network of clients and customers. 

 

Well-known throughout the NY Metro Russian community, Maria is actively involved in NY based business and cultural councils such as the Russian Nobility Association, American-Russian Children's Welfare Society, New York Russian Club, and Russian Gift of Life. She has leveraged both her personal and business relationships in these councils and other associations to create a broad business-based network of professionals, community leaders and respected residents throughout the North Shore. 

 

As a measure of her reach, Maria has hosted a number of spectacular networking events, attended by more than 350 prominent business owners, professionals and residents within the Russian Community and North Shore.  These events were tremendously successful both for Maria and the attendees, primarily because it bridged local merchants and residents who share common bonds. Additionally, there have been a number of other special networking programs she has single-handedly spearheaded, that have also been met with much success.

Maria was extremely responsive, professional, and efficient in delivering the best possible buyer for the highest price in a timely manner. If I was ever looking to sell a home in her area, she would be my first and last phone call.

Sold a Single Family home in 2014 in Roslyn Heights, NY.

Dear Maria, Now that my mother’s home is in contract, I want to express my sincere thanks for your expert handling of the sale. Your intelligence and savvy in pricing the house realistically led to its short stay on the market and, ultimately, its purchase price near the top of the range for a home of its type in Roslyn. You were resourceful and single-minded in the way you went about presenting the property—your follow-up and accessibility inspired tremendous comfort. I always knew that my best interests were being respected and served 100% of the time. I have spent my career doing business with more than a modicum of trust in my sense of the professionals with whom I engage. I knew immediately after our first meeting that you were a go-getter, a diligent professional, and someone of fine character. You have proven these assumptions and more. It will be my pleasure to recommend you to any friends and colleagues in need of a deft and trustworthy real estate agent.  More Less

Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $1.975M in Roslyn Heights, NY.

I recently bought my home with the help of Maria Babaev. Maria is the consummate professional. Not only does Maria obviously know the real estate incredibly well, the differentiator about working with someone like Maria is that the entire community loves her - they genuinely want to work with her and have tremendous respect for her capabilities. Because of this foundation, a new homeowner like myself has tremendous 'immediate' access to the best bankers, interior decorators, builders, contractors, vendors, etc.
