I was born and raised in New York City and had a business background there, even owning and operating my own company. I’ve been a resident of Goldsboro since 1980 and began my real estate career here in 1994 after years in the textile and retail fashion industry. My husband, Nick, is retired from the textile business and now assists me with our real estate business.
My talents and professionalism helped me to become a top producer since 1997 and in winning the prestigious referral resources award, “Goldsboro’s Most Referred Agent”. I have training in interior decorating and have a good sense for staging/preparing a home for the best possible sale. I also always look to assist a Buyer to look to the potential resale value of any potential homes they choose, always with an eye towards the best possible results for my clients.
I stay very busy with my real estate career but when I do manage to squeeze in some free time for myself; I love spending time with my beautiful grandchildren, taking trips to one of our lovely nearby beaches and spending time ready or going to the theatre. I’m also involved in the local Community Art Center and Saint Mary’s Church. I also proudly support the Wounded Warrior Project.See what Maria's clients have to say about working with her:
Maria is Amazing! My husband and I had a unique situation going into the home buying process that had the potential to really complicate things but Maria worked with us and helped make the experience great! She showed us house after house that we were slightly interested in, knowing that we would ultimately end up with the very first one that we saw (which also happened to be the house that got us wanting to buy in the first place)! I recommended her to our best friends when they found out they were moving to the area and I know they were very pleased as well! I would absolutely use her in the future for any of our real estate needs!! She's the best!
Worked with me through the entire process of my current tenants moving out of the house to repairs that needed to be completed to looking at comps in the neighborhood to develop a list price. The house went under contract within 10 days of the listing at full asking price. I was wanting to move the house quickly so I was probably low on the asking price but time is also money.
Maria has helped our family through two moves and we have nothing but good things to say! She always picks up her phone, and responds to email usually within a couple of hours.She is also very knowledgable of our area. Excellent realtor and friend!
