It’s about boundless energy and limitless opportunity. Maria will tell you she’s felt this way her entire life. The daughter of hard-working parents, she grew up instilled with the philosophy that you have to take your own risks and that no one can hold you back from your dreams. “My parents always told me that anything is possible,” Maria says. Some of the earliest validation of that statement came as a 19-year-old, where she recalls visiting the many properties that some of her very first clients, who were custom home builders, would buy as “fixer-uppers” and restore into something of lasting value. The lessons she learned partaking in the transformation of these houses into “homes” left a lasting impression on her and it is how she developed her "whatever it takes" approach. Over a decade later, Maria continues to deliver exceptional customer & client services, bringing years of talent and real estate experience to the Loretta Phinney Team. When you meet Maria today, you’ll quickly notice the same energy and enthusiasm displayed by that young woman more than a decade ago. Those experiences marked Maria’s first exposure to the world of real estate and she was hooked. With a passion for all things home, when she isn’t helping clients buy and sell real estate, Maria writes and shares about interior design and decorating, home remodelling and loves scouring Pinterest for the best DIY projects. In her free time, Maria also enjoys flipping furniture and hunting for the latest home decor trends.
