I have been a Realtor with Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage for 24 years.  I do represent Sellers and Buyers , as well as Asset Managers in the sale of REO, Short Sales, Single family standard sale, Income Properties, Trust and Probate Sales.  As an agent who's an expert in this local area, I bring a wealth of knowledge and expertise about buying and selling real estate here. It's not the same everywhere, so you need someone you can trust for up-to-date information. I am eager to serve you. Here are some of the things I can do for you:

Find Your Next Home
You need someone who knows this area inside and out! I can work with you to find the right home at the right price for you, including all the neighborhood amenities that matter - not to mention the essential criteria you have for your ideal home

Sell a Home
When it's time to move, you need someone who will advertise your home, show to prospective buyers, negotiate the purchase contract, arrange financing, oversee the inspections, handle all necessary paperwork and supervise the closing. I can take care of everything you need, from start to close.

Consult on Home Selling Tactics
Oftentimes buyers don't visualize living in your home the way you do. I can make your home attractive to its ideal audience - which can help you get top dollar. Things like staging the home, making repairs or minor improvements, or even simply painting the walls can be the difference between a home resting on the market and one that's sold fast.

"Maria was referred to me after my initial realtor stepped away as my realtor. I was impressed on how quickly Maria stepped in with efficiency, professional intuition, and tenacity to get my property back on the market. Her expertise and advise was on point to get repairs and upgrades scheduled and completed. My property was sold within a week thanks to her experience. My endless concerns were met with Maria's calm and was always available to answer any questions regardless of the day or time. She was a lifesaver for me and will be forever grateful. When she says she is good at what she does, you can bet your last dollar on her statement. "
