I wanted to personally thank you for all you have done to help Bryan and I find and close on our first home. The journey to Riverwalk was an emotional and at times very overwhelming but with you by our side, I felt more at peace because you took such good care of us. I felt like family so thank you from the bottom of our hearts and going the extra mile.Once we get settled I would love to have you over to see our house and meet our pup Yuna.

Words can not express how grateful we are to you. We appreciate your willingness to go the extra mile in open houses and advertising, that was just what we saw, we know that you did more behind the scenes. This is why so many clients recommend you.
Thank you for holding Kathy's hand as we went through the process and your suggestions of staging were spot on. Calling and giving updates so we could be well informed, or if nothing to report your cheery voice and positive attitude made us feel better that something was going to happen. Indeed it happened!
As hard as it is was to leave our house of 28 years, it makes us feel better the neighborhood is being transformed to a younger generation. It is a great neighborhood we only see it getting better.
One of the nicest things that happened to us while you were selling our house we made a friend.

Without hesitation, we would recommend Maura for your real estate needs. She is the ultimate professional and a walking book of knowledge about real estate buying and selling processes. Maura always had our best interest as a top priority and she was tireless in helping us find the right home. It was a pleasure working with Maura.

As a first time home-buyers my husband and I anticipated that working with a realtor would be similar to our experiences working car salesman. Maura exceeded our expectations in every way. Not only did she provide us with her expertise in navigating the housing market, she helped to teach us what to look for in a home. She actively acknowledged features of the home we looked at that would need repair etc. Maura provided us appointments that fit our schedule, and was consistently on time and prepared. Her personal relationships throughout the community were truly an asset when it came to getting home inspections scheduled under a time crunch. I wouldn't think twice to work with Maura again and would absolutely recommend her to my friends and family

Maura came highly recommended and within a few days of an initial conversation on the phone, we were meeting at top quality houses for showings. She quickly understood what I was looking for in a new home, and when on site, she educated me on numerous key details to look for during a walk-through. When I decided to pull the trigger on an offer, Maura helped me get the best deal I could. I am confident that if I had worked with a different realtor, I would not be as happy as I am now in my new home.

Maura is so personable, experienced, professional and a great person to work with. She is up front and honest and doesn't beat around the bush which we really appreciated. She knows the area very well and knows how to work with people - both buyers and sellers. She responded to all our questions as soon as possible. I highly recommend her to anyone!

Thank you for all your guidance and patience during our house search! Atley and Arrio are so happy to be in a neighborhood with so many other kids, and we love the layout of the house even though - after 10 years of living in a < 1,500 s. ft. house - we sometimes can't find the kids.
All the best,
Melissa and Tristan

We were trying to add up the years we've been working with you for both buying and selling a house... maybe over 10 years at least! I know we met in 2002! Thanks for hanging with us through all that time! Thanks for your patience - especially with my allergy stuff. Thanks for your persistence, knowledge, and wisdom along the way!

Thank you so much for all you've done for me over the past (many) months. I can't imagine having done this experience without you, and I still remember the first day I walked into your office, absolutely terrified. You have been absolutely wonderful to me and my family. I'm so excited to move into my new place. It's exactly what I wanted. I will happily recommend you to everyone.
