Maria grew up in Corte Madera, and moved to Cloverdale in 1988. Loving the small-town feel, she never left. She raised two children, a son who became a Sergeant in the US Marine Corps, and a daughter who also lives in Cloverdale. Enjoying Sonoma County’s beautiful landscape is her greatest passion; whether it’s biking, hiking, boating or golfing.
After a successful 25 year career in mortgage lending, and ready for a change, she partnered with Tedi Spain and began a career in Real Estate Sales in 2014. With the abundant knowledge and experience from the lending side of purchase transactions, it was a smooth transition.
“What I love most about mortgage lending and real estate sales is listening to what is important to people and helping them to obtain that goal. Because I know the real estate process can be overwhelming, I want my clients to feel comfortable by keeping them informed and educated. This is often the most important financial decision made in a lifetime.
I pride myself in keeping current with the constantly changing market on a day to day basis. I feel that my most important responsibility is to intelligently and strategically advise on value and negotiations in order to obtain the best outcome for my client.”
