Maria went above and beyond, taking on additional roles when the sellers and the agents dropped the ball. She not only got us a good price (far below asking) she also made sure we won concessions to make needed repairs to our new home. She's a fierce advocate for her clients. After the sale, she helped us find reliable painters, plumbers and a contractor to do some additional work. She is the best.
Have a pad of paper handy when you first meet Maria Muriello. The ideas for making our house look its best – without spending a lot of money – just flowed from her during our first visit. With years of experience guiding her suggestions, Maria has an extremely professional approach to marketing homes, and was invaluable in helping us through the process of selling our house. She is also a terrific person.
With Maria, we knew we had someone who had our back. She provided referrals to a team of professionals who we hired to help make the house sell. She has a decorator who gave us great suggestions for de-cluttering. Working with the decorator, Maria rearranged our furniture and brought in vases, paintings, and other decorator items to really spruce up the place. She suggested we have a termite pre-sale inspection so there were no surprises, and referred us to other skilled tradespeople, who helped tackle problems and get the house ready for a quick sale. She hired a professional to photograph the house, which really made a difference in how the advertisements looked, both online and on paper.
Our house sold ten days after going on the market, with multiple offers. Maria shepherded the sale through escrow, helping us with the paper work and making certain everyone involved followed through.
In sum, Maria was terrific to work with, knows the market, and knows how to sell homes.

I have had the pleasure of having Maria help me with buying and selling two homes. This last home that I sold in La Crescenta was in Dec. 2012. I moved to the desert and without Maria's knowledge, expertise and persistence I would have lost the home I was buying. The agent for my buyer, dropped the ball and so did the agents in the desert. She did the work of three agents! If it weren't for Maria and her impressive negotiating skills, her CARING that things move along in the time frame that was vital to my getting the home of my choice, the entire deal would not have transpired. I am living in my new beautiful home right now because of her. She has integrity and the professional aptitude to see things through. But most of all, she is true to her word and is a woman of honor. I can't say enough in how I would recommend her to anyone who needed to have someone so capable and willing to take you through the grilling process of buying or selling a home. Maria Muriello goes beyond for her clients and is excellent at what she does.

Maria Muriello listed my mother's home when she moved out of state. She brought in a team to stage the home and a professional photographer to create an excellent flyer and web advertisement. She was professional in her counter offers to make sure we had the best escrow placement and tightened up any loose details in the offers. The particular loan institution the buyer used asked for an inordinate number of detailed certifications regarding the house at the last minute and Maria handled all of them on a timely basis. Her contractors were punctual, pleasant, and professional. Without her guiding expertise I doubt that this sale could have proceeded to completion. I would highly recommend her as your realtor.

I called Maria recently to give us a accurate current market value of our home. Maria responded immediately, was very informative, went above and beyond, and was honest with her assessment of our home. She even recommended that we wait to sell. How many sales people would do that? When we are in a better position to sell we will be calling Maria for sure.

Maria was an absolute joy and pleasure to work with! She is so professional, honest, hard-working, and an expert in her field and the area! Maria has years of experience and it shows. She knows the market and all the homes in the area. She is such a warm and beautiful person and we fully trusted her advice and judgment.
Maria helped our family buy our first home. She met with us initially to assess what we were looking for and found us the most perfect home. The home buying process as a first time buyer can be difficult. She walked us through every step. Her team is fantastic. Maria is amazing. Thank you soooo much Maria! We are truly so happy in our new home!

With Maria's help we sold a house in a very difficult market. She was there every step of the way and there is no doubt we would not have done as well as we did, in any kind of acceptable time frame, if not for her guidance. We feel we were well served and made a friend in the process.

It took us six years to find a house and Maria stuck with us. She helped us get through selling our house, and purchasing a short sale. She knows the area well and is very capable when it comes to real estate forms. In addition, she is excellent at preparing your house for a sale. She will make your house look like a gem. Best of all Maria is fun to work with. I enjoyed all of our time together and you will too!

Maria sold our parents’ house for us after they passed away. She was an absolute delight to work with, and greatly reduced our stress during a very difficult period. Open, warm, and down-to-earth, Maria felt like a life-long friend 10 minutes after meeting her. We found her extremely knowledgeable about the local real estate market, and just loved her energy and enthusiasm. She takes care of absolutely everything in preparing the house for sale, including all the arrangements to have needed repairs done quickly and at a fair price. This initiative and independence makes her a terrific choice for those who live outside the area, or are too busy to devote much time to the house preparation and sale process. Given the current market conditions, we feared that selling our house might be a long and frustrating ordeal. It was just the opposite. We were fielding multiple offers within days of placing the house on the market, and accepted an offer for the full list-price less than two-weeks after listing. Based on our experience, Maria Muriello is a highly effective real estate agent… and a very special person.
