'I started looking for a house in August 2011. I went to open homes, agents asked me what I was looking for, we talked about the number of bedrooms, locations and budget. In November I was still looking and getting more than a tad disillusioned with the real estate industry. Then I went to an open home with Maria. She got me talking and really listened. Suddenly I had an agent who was actively looking for a house that I would want, rather than one that would just meet my needs. She showed me properties that were suitable and again listened when I said - not quite right and why. In late December we found what I was looking for and even though it was the holidays Maria came to work, and supported me through the process of getting valuations and a builder's report, calmed my nerves through a competitive offer and here I am - right where I want to be. I love my new house. Thank you for putting in the time and effort to help me find it.'
'My partner and I both found Maria excellent to deal with. She has an open and friendly
demeanour which made us very comfortable but at the same time she could provide us with answers to all our questions. As first home buyers we found the whole process quite enjoyable and Maria made it easy.'
'Maria has been an inspiration with a ready smile and word's of encouragement. We would highly recommend her as an agent and are grateful for all that she has done and hope she achieves all that she aspires to in this area.'

Maria was professional, honest sincere, accommodating, courteous, patient, knowledgeable and friendly.'

She went out of her way to ensure that she understood our requirements and took a personal interest in ensuring that our wishes were met at all times.
