Ratings & Reviews

Maria had initially contacted me quite a few years ago regarding the sale of my home at Sonoma. This year I felt it was time to sell. Preparation and marketing the home was smooth; Maria was very helpful and clearly experienced. When a buyer came forward signaled the time of difficulty. Maria knows well the twists and turns of the documentation required for a sale. Due to my not being in the area and a very busy schedule( both contributing factors in the decision to sell) my ability to react to all requirements wasn't optimal so that is on me but here I believe Maria did her best. After some back and forth offer/counter offer on selling price and discussion of closing costs( credits) which made the outcome of the transaction questionable in my mind what made the closure of this transaction unpleasant in the extreme was the lopsided nature of the final negotiation outcome. There were no successful negotiations that would allow me to move with grace and arrange for proper transfer of all my personal property ultimately resulting in either having to donate or outright discard several items which I'd wished to keep. In all fairness this would have been a difficult move under the best of circumstances but the experience was far worse than expected. Perhaps negotiation wasn't in possible under any circumstance but I relied on Maria to be my advocate and it is this aspect which I ( and others) feel was inadequate. I have come away with the perception that as long as the sale went to plan all would be well but at the first sign of roughness I was under represented. Unfortunate.

Sold a home in 2013 in Agua Caliente, Petaluma, CA 95476.

Maria guided my family through a very complicated transaction as we were buying our home in Sonoma during an extended trip to Switzerland.

Maria is deeply knowledgable of the Sonoma real estate market, is an incredibly pleasant person to work with, and always has an upbeat attitude.

Sold a Single Family home in 2013 in Petaluma, CA.

My husband's family has used Maria multiple times over the years, and this was my first experience. Her experience and expertise in knowing how to work the market, advice on getting our home ready for sale, as well as local contractors we needed to help us get ready, made all the difference. She made the sale of our house into a coming out party, stirring up local interest, so that we had 3 competing offers all above our asking price. She held our hands, when we had questions, always getting back to us quickly with answers to our questions. Finding us a great finance person to facilitate the buying of our next house, and was able to reassure the selling agent for that house that our house was selling and they could count on us as buyers. I think her recommendation made all the difference for us in being able to move into the house of our dreams. Thank you Maria, and thank you to Michael for taking such outstanding pictures of our house that made it show so well on-line  More Less
