Maria is fantastic. I could never have guessed how important it is to have a great real estate agent representing you. After working with Maria, it becomes crystal clear. She is wonderful to work with, provides excellent guidance throughout the process, and takes great care of her clients. I would certainly work with her again.

Bought a Condo home in 2010 for approximately $325K in Germantown, MD.
Maria took time to learn what I wanted, my commuting and neighborhood concerns, and helped with suggestions since I was new to the area. Maria was recommended to me by two co-workers who were completely satisfied with her assistance in purchasing their homes 10 years prior to my purchase, and I could not have chosen a better person. She's very personable and sincerely concerned with helping you find something you'll love.

Who new when we met we would become more than realtor/client. You have been the best work -out buddy I could ask for. I loved helping you purchase your home but even more I love hiking and biking with you. If you ever wanted to move away I would have to say NO!
Sold a Single Family home in 2012 in Gaithersburg, MD.
Maria was the perfect realtor! Not only does she possess the expertise in regards to "the process", she makes it simple to understand.
When we first met Maria, we asked her to give us suggestions about how to make our home more attractive to buyers. We did everything she suggested, and our house sold in about six weeks! Not only was this great in terms of time, it was amazing because houses were not selling very quickly at that time.
Maria answered every question we had; and she was honest! When we suggested a price, she showed us data that backed her decision to list it a tiny bit lower, in order to attract a wider audience. It worked.
We needed a "rent back" period from our buyers, and Maria handled it all--to everyone's satisfaction.
Closing was a mere formality, as Maria had explained everything to us ahead of time, and all our paperwork was in order.
So professionally, she is great. But personally, she is even better! She is easy to talk to, likes to laugh, and felt more like a friend than anything else. It's no wonder her signs are on so many properties in the area.

I found Maria by browsing Zillow for highly rated real estate agents in the Rockville/Germantown area of Maryland. I was specifically looking for an agent with good but not exceedingly high turnover rate because I expect personal attention. In that sense this is also a review of a Zillow search for an agent. In short – I got exactly what I was looking for. Maria is a very competent and knowledgeable real estate agent who is also an easygoing person. She is very good at coming back to you with answers to your questions and general advice. I never felt pressured about making the important decisions, which was very important for me. Maria is just there for you. I was not a first time buyer but committing to a house is always an anxious experience. Maria helped me navigate the process with ease. I had complete confidence in her throughout the entire experience. So much so that at the end, after I bought a house, I asked her to recommend contractors to do some improvements I wanted done. Perhaps not surprisingly, they also did an excellent job. I would recommend her to a friend without any hesitation – a top professional with connections to other top professionals! When it is time to move I hope she is still around.
I found the previous reviews accurate and useful, so if you are looking for an agent Zillow is the way to go in my experience.

It was such a pleasure getting to know you and working through the process with you. I love the home you purchased. I just know that you will have lots of fun there enjoying that beautiful pool. I am so sorry to have missed the house warming party. I am looking forward to helping the people you know with real estate!

Maria made the process of selling our home as stress free as possible. She treats you as a friend and not just a client. We had all of our questions answered quickly, we were given excellent advice on preparing our home for sale. Maria worked diligently on showing our home. We were so pleased with Maria that we have already referred her to friends.

Dear Karl and Linda,
Thank you for being so easy to work with. You took all of my counsel to heart and made the right decisions each and every time you needed to act. I have loved working with you both. I wish you did not move so far away but you know I know how important it is to be close to family if you can. I can't wait to start working with your friends and old neighbors!
My husband and I met Maria at an open house and we instantly knew we wanted her to guide us through the home buying/selling process. We hadn't yet put our condo on the market but we were interested in a home that recently went on the market. What drew us to Maria was her trustworthiness and commitment to assisting us on our home buying journey. Maria guided us through the purchase of our new home and immediately set us up for the sale of our condo. With her help and her "team" we sold our home within one week of it being on the market. We appreciate Maria's availability and immediate response to all our questions and her knowledge of the industry. Maria is good at what she does and genuinely cares and we highly recommend her for your realtor.

Wow thank you!! You both made it easy for me. Thank you for trusting me to help you find your new home. I can't wait to see you around town!
I met Maria in the 1990's when I was interested in leasing out a house. Maria found a renter for me immediately and I was very pleased with her professional attitude. Subsequently I decided to sell that house and purchase another. Again I contacted Maria and she was able to find a buyer quickly and find me a house that I eventually purchased. That was 14 years ago. Now that I have retired and am moving out of the state I contacted Maria and contracted with her to sell this house. Within 2 weeks I had a contract and just finished the settlement on the property. I highly recommend using Maria for your real estate needs.

Maria is an outstanding professional. She responded to every question and concern immediately and her knowledge about every neighborhood we were interested in is impeccable.
Maria helped us find our dream home and was there to make each step (from open house to closing) an enjoyable process!
