My wife and I decided to move in 2010 at the bottom of the real estate market. We had an offer on our existing townhouse that was significantly underwater, but we really wanted to move into a bigger house. We were prepared to accept this offer and pay the difference in the sale price and the mortgage to unload that property. While Maria could have counseled us to accept the offer, she proposed that we rent the property until the market turned around. I never would have considered becoming a landlord without Maria's help. We decided to rent the property and Maria quickly found us a great tenant. When that tenant moved out four years later, we put the house back on the market and were able to sell it for almost $60,000 more than the last time it was listed. Maria's ability to put her clients first over closing the deal saved my family a significant amount of money. I would recommend Maria to anyone looking for a house in her service area.
She works with you patiently and diligently, we even went out in the rain and snow. She listens to what you want and I always felt she was looking out for MY interests. i took quite a while but eventually we found the perfect house. I've worked with her before in buying and selling o house I owned. I will never use another agent but her.
When Maria showed me a house she would point out flaws and would tell me not to buy it, and I respected that. Many realtors just want to make a sale. I listed my townhouse with Maria and it sold in one day.
She answered all my questions since this was the first house I had sold. Although my first buyer canceled the contract, Maria was very helpful in suggesting to put new carpet in the bedrooms. She had a great person to do this and it was done in 2 days. If you need to buy a house or list a house in the Schaumburg area, Maria's 35 years of experience in this market will make your experience very pleasant.
It was exciting at first, then came the difficulties and frustrations of cleaning out the house, getting it ready to show, making the repairs and sifting through the offers. Maria was there for all of it and made sure that we were kept informed throughout the process. She worked very hard to advertise the home on many different media. Prospective buyers came and went, but finally found a good family. If you are interested in getting your home sold, there is no one I would rather have on my side.
