Testimonials for Maria Morton
Keithley Lake, Esq.03/17/2013
“Maria is the best in the business! I received great guidance the whole way. Had no issues besides name change. Maria handled it briskly & was the one who found the problem in the first place! Maria was great!” - Keithley Lake, Esq.
‘Maria turned out to be a wonderful realtor and was quite proactive in marketing the condo. She also made sound recommendations re: how to make the unit more appealing without spending a lot of money. She has a real knack in dealing with older people, too, which was quite helpful in working with my stepmother, who is 91. My stepmother rarely trusts strangers, but she liked Maria right away and they became good friends. She sold the unit quickly without any fuss and it turned out to be such a blessing because my stepmother now needs the money from the sale to pay her expenses at an assisted living facility.
Maria also recommended the services of several individuals. They were very patient in helping my stepmother and charged very reasonable fees. Maria also helped my stepmother pack up her belongings, which was really above and beyond. (I've never had a realtor do this.) All in all, I could not be happier with the advice and services Maria provided to us. I would recommend her to anyone who wants someone who provides excellent, timely service and offers sound advice regarding the many decisions to made in selling one's home.’ --R. Moran
"Thank you so much for all your hard work. We were a little unsure how this was going to work, you know, being 1,000 miles away and only having so much time to find the house. You really made us feel better when you told us about all the homes you were previewing for us. And you knew just what to look for. I know you did a lot of work before we got here but we found our home and bought it in less than 3 days. That's amazing!" - The Wanamakers
“I could have not picked a better agent. Maria is SUPERB! I am a very inpatient person and need someone to keep up with me. During my housing process I found myself trying to keep up with Maria. She was on top of things, when something needed to be done she went over and beyond to make it happen. There were a few times when documents needed to be completed ASAP and she didn't hesitate to offer to bring the papers to me where ever I was, whether that is work or home. Maria is also very knowledgeable; she diligently researches your interested house area and will provide her input and thoughts on the desired neighborhood. There was a neighborhood that I found a lot of houses priced relatively low, but she informed me that the resale value of that area was not very good. She could have easily sold me anything, but she didn't. She cared and was actually looking out for the best interest of ME! Just like it should be! I can go on and on about Maria. She was perfect and I thank her very much for putting up with me and getting me into my new home that I love so much!!” - LEasterwood
"I'm so happy! I can't believe it sold so fast! ...a little skeptical when you first suggested this plan but you were right - it worked! ...it was so easy for me - I know you had to deal with a lot of _¬___ but you did a great job. Thank you!" -Tom Wahl

Move-up sellers & buyers: “During one of the worst times for selling a condo in history, Maria was able to strategically price and actively market our unit so it sold in 2 and ½ weeks. We couldn’t have been happier with how smoothly the transaction went.
Maria couldn’t have been more helpful in negotiating our transaction. She was proactive, knowledgeable and available throughout the process. She found our dream home at a great price.” –Mr. & Mrs. Mich
