The execution (and entire experience for that matter) was second to none and the pleasure was truly ours!”

Maria takes great pride in finding the perfect match between client and property. Her sincere concern for her clients’ ultimate happiness is what sets her apart from the rest. Her private clients can count on her and her team for professional expertise and confidentiality.”

“Maria has an ability to look at all possibilities and was sensitive to all the people’s needs in both parties, the seller and the buyer. She is thoughtful, not forceful, wise, and creative. I was very confident that if we were meant to get the property we were looking at, that we would. Ours took some time unfolding and Maria never rushed any of us or made us feel uncomfortable. She held the space and allowed it to all unfold in its own time. I will recommend Maria to anyone looking to engage in a real estate deal. She has savvy and heart! In my book that goes a long way.”

– Heather Mack

“We’re writing to thank you again for the fantastic work that you and your entire team did for us around helping us find and purchase our home in Wellington, FL. From beginning to end, you and your team went above and beyond, handling each aspect of the process in an expert fashion with grace and finesse. From finding a listing for us that “checked every box,” to professionally guiding us through the negotiations, the contract, the inspection, the closing, then recommending first class tradespeople (painter, electrician, plumber, etc.) to assist us after we closed; this was the smoothest transaction we’ve yet to engage in. You, and your entire Douglas Elliman team are superstars; we are extremely grateful to you all for helping us find the perfect property.”
