Born and raised in St. Louis Missouri, Maria moved to Portland in 1996 and vowed never to leave. She holds a BA in Business Management from UoP. The decision to move into real estate intensified when she started buying investment properties in 2014. With her love of interior design, renovations and remodeling, she carries the same drive and commitment to the home buying and selling process with her clients. Making connections, listening to the needs and wants of a client and weighing those expectations to the home search is one of her best attributes. She will walk a client through every step of the buying and/or selling process in a way that puts them at ease and helps lessen the stress of such. Relationships are very important to her and she will always go the extra mile to do whatever is needed.
When Maria is not helping her clients, she is with family, her dogs, traveling, gardening, doing renovation projects, and checking out the local restaurants. As an avid sports fan, the St. Louis Cardinals being her MLB team, she is a 7-year season ticket holder with the Hillsboro Hops Baseball.
