"Always available, excellent communication skills and ability to explain the processes. Even at short notice worked extremely hard at getting me in to see properties." Martin Green
We had a few bumps in the road, but Maria was quick to solve the issues! I'm extremely happy with my new house! I bought during the holiday season and Maria went out of her way to make sure my kids still had a Christmas amongst all the packed boxes!" L. Crowley
"Maria has an excellent working knowledge of the Space Coast area housing market. She helped us sell our home of 8 years in Merritt Island, FL in record time. There were a few unexpected twists and turns as we went through the process with a quirky buyer. Her patience in dealing with the buyer's agent was nothing shore of invaluable. With calm resolve she guided us through every step successfully and protected our interests. As first time sellers, we were extremely glad to have her on our side. She went above and beyond to help us close our sale quickly and profitably. J.M.

She got me everything i was looking for in a home and some things I didn't know I needed or wanted.she got the seller to fix all issues from inspection.if I ever buy any property or home I will definitely use her again and I highly recommend her for any first time homeowners."

Maria handled the sale of our late father's house. She was professional, kept us up to date on everything going on wit the listing and sale, and was adept at resolving some hiccups along the way. We were able to sell the house quickly and at a very good price thanks to her hard work. I recommend her wholeheartedly to anyone looking for an outstanding real estate professional. A five star review! JR Brown
Maria is amazing. I couldn't have found my house without her help. Having an experienced realtor is key to finding what you want. Craig Jones
Definitely would recommend Maria. she was available for me day or night. I am not really skilled on "e-sign" and she was kind enough to help me through all the transactions! When I texted, emailed or called she always returned my call or picked up immediately. Her knowledge of the available areas was terrific. I would not hesitate to recommend her to my friends or anyone who would ask! BEST AGENT AROUND!" Linda Wiehagen
Maria was always there to answer all our questions and concerns as first time homebuyers. She was very good at responding to all communication. It took us awhile to find the right home for us but Maria never made us feel rushed or pushed to find something faster. She really wants to help you get the best deal when negotiating. Pkrou, Realtor.com user
Maria was great to work with. She researched properties for us for almost a year. She listened to what we wanted and found us the perfect future retirement home. She is a great negotiator, very professional, and is there for you every step of the way. She completed everything for us while we were in another state. Her knowledge of everything that we needed to know about the area was endless and made the process of buying a home very easy. Even after our purchase she's still answering questions. We highly recommend her. -Jandrgreer, Zillow user
Maria was the agent for the private residence I sold recently. From the very start she took command and control of the entire process, preparation, presentation, and sale. Her performance was magnificent. If you are in need of an agent, do yourself a huge favor; call Maria. Robert Hamilton
Maria was wonderful to work with. She's very knowledgeable and patient. She just knew we'd find the perfect new home, and she was right! She listened to may wants and was able to accommodate that negotiating the contract. Professional, friendly, reliable and available - Maria is top notch. I highly recommend working with her! -Zillow user
"Maria worked with us for 18 months to find our perfect second home. As out-of-state buyers, we needed to make several trips to Florida to really understand the "lay of the land". Maria was always available for our visits. Our texts, emails and phone calls were answered with incredible promptness...sometimes within seconds regardless of the time of day. We really didn't know what we wanted and she was extremely patient with our uncertainty showing us dozens of single family homes and condominiums. In each showing, she pointed out the pluses and minuses, potential negotiation points, and her thoughts on improvement costs. She was very knowledgeable of home construction and utilities issues, and helped us consider property strengths and potential pitfalls. Since we were new to the area, she ensured we understood the geography as well state and local real estate laws, tax implications including homestead rebate provisions, and our rights as buyers. When we were ready to make an offer, she helped us set the offering price and was pivotal in helping us negotiate a great deal. She carefully walked us through the contract ensuring we completely understood all the fine print. As the deal progressed, Maria was always there to help us make decisions on insurance, home inspections, appraisals, etc. After closing, she continued to make herself available to answer questions, provide advice and help us identify service providers to get our new home ready for occupancy. To this day, we continue to use Maria as a resource for answering questions about the local community and address new homeowner issues. Maria has been more than a Realtor. She's been a trusted friend, always willing to help. We love Maria!" giaquinto24 (zillow)
Maria is outstanding! As a retired military family, we’ve relocated and worked with many Realtors over the years. Maria’s integrity, work ethic, and professionalism is the best! She’s makes the home buying experience a true pleasure. We love Maria! Sue and Joe G.
"Maria is a fantastic Real Estate Agent. She was very patient and understanding while I looked at many different properties and finally found the right one. She took care of my needs throughout the lease and back ground check processes. She continually followed up and made herself available for showings when it was convenient for me. I will definitely use Maria as my Agent should I be looking to Rent or Own a home in the future."
"Maria was so helpful! Her experience, advice and compassion is priceless! We are so grateful for the opportunity to work with Maria. We would love to work with her again in the future. She explained every step of the process and helped guide us down the path to owning a home. We are very satisfied with her service and can't say enough good things about her. She is very responsive and timely, she will not let you down!"
"Maria helped us sell our home in record time! We could not have chosen a better realtor. As out of state sellers we needed a realtor we could rely on. Maria was exactly that - she was so reliable, available by phone/text at any time, and always willing to go that extra strep to help us sell the house. She managed several vendors for us and ensured the house was taken care of at all times. We accepted an offer within 1 week of listing our house with Maria. The sale went smoothly and she was there every step of the way. She is not only a great realtor but also a great person. You will be in great hands with Maria as your realtor."
"Maria worked with me as I meandered a maze of properties. I'm thrilled with my purchase. She has a sense of humor. She was patient and accommodated my schedule. When she needed to be away, she made sure there was a smooth transition to an associate."

“Maria is an excellent agent. she worked patiently and diligently with us throughout our house hunting and purchase experience. We would highly recommend her service to anyone buying or selling a home."
She's great and she really cares about what you want. I can't imagine a more detailed and dedicated realtor. She showed us 15 houses in one weekend because I couldn't be there any other time to look. Most realtors would balk. She helped us keep them all straight in our heads and we found the perfect one for us.
Maria is a true professional. She always made us feel like we were her only concern and looked after our best interests. Her advice is always right on point and based on experience. We would highly recommend her to anyone needing real estate services.
--Ian & Diane
It would be a pleasure to recommend Maria to our friends. Maria was the most professional realtor we have worked with in the past 25 years of buying and selling homes & property. She went out of her way to assist us from the search to the closing, and even after the purchase. Maria was always there to answer any questions we had and we were pleased to have her as our realtor.
--Peter & Wimkje
My brother & I were very pleased with Maria’s professional and courteous services that we received from her (Tropical Realty) during the purchasing of our Condo/Townhouse in Melbourne, Florida. I will recommend Maria (Tropical Realty) to my friends and colleagues, that I come across in the future, who are looking to buy or sell property in the Cocoa Beach / Merritt Island / Melbourne areas.
