Maria Mendelsohn

Realtor Associate Maria began her professional career in the world of investment banking, representing large world funds for companies like Bear Stearns, R.D. Smith & Co., Sculley Brothers and Paine Webber. But her true passion has always been all things equestrian.   As a graduate of Foxcroft School in Middleburg, Virginia, she rode and competed as a young girl. As a result, she understands the sensibilities of those who live the same lifestyle, contributing to her success as a real estate professional specializing in fine equestrian and luxury properties. Maria's knowledge of the finance industry and her dedication to excellence make her a talented advocate for clients' real estate interests.   Maria is a dominating force within the equestrian real estate industry. Her clients consider her a trusted advisor. As a result, many of the world's most notable industry leaders and world-class equestrians turn to Maria for her real estate expertise.   Due to her success, extensive experience and knowledge of both real estate and the equestrian industry, Maria was recruited by Douglas Elliman to be a member of the exclusive Sports and Entertainment division, a designation reserved for the rare broker who meets the highest standards of integrity and professionalism.   As an active member within the equestrian community Maria is always looking for ways to give back. She is discrete, diplomatic and fiercely protective of her clients and fully appreciates the value of building relationships based on mutual trust and understanding. She is very experienced and well versed in taking complete care from top to bottom including additional family members, the chef, pilot, and barn staff.


  • "My husband and I had the pleasure of working with Maria when we purchased our home in the Polo Club. In addition to her obvious knowledge and expertise, Maria is high energy and creative. She did an excellent job negotiating a successful deal we felt was a win/win for both buyer and seller and in the process we made a friend. Maria’s exceptional work ethic, and enthusiasm for her work is contagious. We enjoyed working with Maria and her wonderful assistants and would highly, highly recommend them."

  • "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, Lindsay and your entire Douglas Elliman team are superstars; we are extremely grateful to you all for helping us find the perfect property."

  • "It was absolutely the best experience I’ve had. I have homes all over the country. She and her staff, made everything so easy. If I thought about things I needed to do or questions I had, it was already done. She made an experience that could be unpleasant, incredible. She’s knowledgeable and she knows the market. She’s a lovely person to be with, she doesn’t make you feel like any of your questions are unworthy. I just love her!"

    – Jamie Jarvis
  • "She’s fantastic. She’s thorough, knows her stuff, creative and she’s solid."

    – Annabelle Garrett
  • "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."

As I reflect on our recent Wellington, Florida, transaction, the following come to mind: exceptionally knowledgeable, passionate, keenly insightful, extraordinarily thorough and, most importantly, Maria has an innate ability to understand the wants, desires and needs of each and every client. The execution (and entire experience for that matter) was second to none and the pleasure was truly ours!"

She found me the perfect place and organized the final deal between the sellers and me with great ease. I never felt pressured or worried as she exudes calm, honesty and capability. She never talked a place up making it appear better than it really was. I found her to be absolutely wonderful and I just love my new place."

She works really hard and she always comes through for you. Whatever it is that you are looking for she seems to have a knack of finding it. Her energy is amazing to have around me in any capacity; as a friend, student and client — she just exudes happiness and goodness. I trust her incredibly."

  • "I’ve worked with Maria Mendelsohn for over 10 years as her photographer. I would like to emphasize that she is the most professional and thoughtful agent I have ever worked with. She gives more than 110 percent to her clients and follows through even after the sale has completed. She will help find a trainer for the new owner or their child, household help — anything that will make the move easier for the clients. I would highly recommend Maria to anyone looking for a seasonal, rental or relocation to beautiful horse country."

    – Bea Bolton

    – Deborah Rego
  • "I would have to say it was a very good experience. She was very knowledgeable and pleasant to be with. Her supporting staff was equally as pleasant and knew their facts. She made a point of showing a few properties and made sure we ended up with the right one. She was very efficient with the sales of the one we had and got that done in a timely manner."
