Helped me buy home
As I purchased my first investment property out of state, I would say that I was lucky to work with Maria. I previously worked with 2 real estate agents before her that didn't pay me much attention nor seem helpful, so I moved on. I am glad to have stumbled across her profile on Zillow. There are 2 characteristics that proved to me she was the perfect agent to work with. First was her looking out for my best interest. I knew a bit about the Houston market before I began searching for homes, but didn't know much when it came to renting out the property. She assisted me in offering a fair price if she felt the property wasn't worth the asking price, she offered advice when it came to fixing up the property before showing, she gave me a second opinion when I was quoted for repairs needed, and the list can go on. Since I was only able to view homes by shopping online, she offered to drive out to properties I was interested in to check them out. By looking out for my best interest, she earned my trust (which is the second characteristic that I value). It is not easy to trust someone you've never met in person, especially when it comes to purchasing a home out of state. After the offer was accepted, I needed to submit earnest and option funds asap to someone I've only spoken to over the phone. Adding on, the home needed appliances so she shopped around to get me a great deal on a refrigerator, washer, and dryer. She sent me pictures for my viewing, but overall I trusted her judgement when it came to quality of the items. The same thing can be said when it came to preparing the property for tenants to view. After ordering a home inspection, I trusted her judgement on what needed immediate attention. Maria also assisted me in marketing the property for rent. She guided me through the process and we were able to get a tenant moved in after about a week or 2. She handled the screening process and made it easy for me. Overall, it seems as if a lot of people look to work with real estate agents whom have the most knowledge, or whom have been in the business for a number of years. While that sounds like the ideal real estate agent to work with, I feel as if working with someone you can easily trust and someone who will look out for your best interest is much more valuable. Actually, it is invaluable as you will not find that among most real estate agents. Maria helped me purchase my first investment property in Houston and I look forward to working with her again soon to purchase additional properties. I would easily recommend her. Less ... More

Maria has helped us with both buying and selling. She is reliable and made us feel at ease from the get go. We were worried about selling our house since the market was slow but we ended up closing on our house in less then a month. We couldn't believe it . I would recommend Maria to friends and family. Thanks again, Maria.

Thank you very much! It takes a coordinated effort between the sellers and agent to sell a house. I provided the free staging and professional photography but you also kept the home in immaculate shape and listened to my professional advice. It was a pleasure to work with you!

Helped me buy home
Maria was great! I was looking for a starter home in the Midtown area. She took me around to different locations in Houston so I could see what different areas of the city had to offer, while giving me a variety of different properties to see. She found a great property for me in a location that gave me easy freeway access for my commute to the suburbs. She was attentive, responsive to my questions, and easy to talk to. Maria explained the process to me very well as a first time home buyer, and the transaction went smoothly. I highly recommend her because she is very professional and knowledgeable. Thank you Maria for all your help! Less ... More

We chose Maria as our realtor because we knew she would get quick results. She helped to stage our home after we listed it with her. It was very soon after an open house that Maria received an offer. She negotiated with the buyer to come very close to our asking price. We agreed on the final offer and sold the home. Should we need a realtor in the future, we will definitely use Maria again.

I contacted Maria after reading reviews on her on Zillow. We wanted her to find us a house in Houston for our son who would be attending post graduate school. Maria was able to find the right property after only going out and looking a few times. When we were negotiating, Maria was able to save us over $20,000 with her excellent negotiating skills. From the very beginning we felt that Maria cared about making us happy, seeing though with the transaction and all the fine details it entails and never about her commission. She even offered to help our son with his transition to Houston after the transaction was over. I highly recommend her and will use her again! Less ... More

I have absolutely nothing negative to say about Maria. She has been very attentive, always answered my questions and if she didn't know the answer hunted it down, and is a friendly happy person.

She is a dedicated and hard working individual, who will go above and beyond to help her clients.

Helped me buy and sell homes
I have been working with Maria for a few months now. My fiance and I have been looking to buy our first home. She has been very understanding throught the entire process. She is also very knowledegable about the process of buying and selling and is able to explain everything in a way that I can understand it. When we decide to sell our first home, she is going to be my first choice in a listing agent.
