"Maria was incredible! She was such a breath of fresh air during our first home-buying experience! She answered all of our questions quickly and worked with our crazy schedule. We were truly blessed to have her as our agent, so sad in fact that we hated to say goodbye at our closing. Look forward to working with her again in the future! "
