Get to know Maria Kadau
Hi I'm Maria Kadau. I live, work and play in the Pinellas County peninsula of Tampa Bay. I have a true passion for living here and specialize in the waterfront lifestyle of St. Pete-Clearwater-Clearwater Beach-Indian Rocks Beach-Largo-Seminole-and more. I am a veteran of the U.S. Army NG, having met my husband at Ft. Sam Houston in Texas when we were going through EMT training. Born and raised in Maryland, I graduated from Salisbury University, earning Bachelor's degrees in Political Science and Philosophy. My husband and I have lived in St. Petersburg and Largo with our two daughters, and have extensively remodeled all of our homes.
Before I was top producing agent, I spent ten years in the non-profit industry in leadership positions, managing staff, committees, budgets, community outreach and fundraising, as well as millions in education grants.
I am super-involved in the community and am an extremely active agent, currently ranked top 6% out of 7,000 in our local Board. This means I keep busy!

Karen Hughes from Michigan - bought home in Seminole, FL08/14/2013
Maria and her assistant Taryn were extremely helpful, and always responded quickly to our questions. They made sure we were kept informed and were always available when needed. Thanks!
Rob Angstadt from California01/03/2013
"I found Maria through Rotary and am glad I did. She was incredible to work with: intelligent, honest, and most importantly, responsive to my numerous emails. She worked hard to get my listing sold for more than the asking price. I could not be happier. All I had to do was hire Maria; she did the rest!"
Zillow review from Mr. Angstadt, a satisfied seller
Kathy Figueroa from New York - bought condo in Indian Rocks Beach12/05/2012
Maria was able to find us just what we were looking for. We are located in NY and her video tours of potential purchases made us feel comfortable buying, sight unseen. We were hit by superstorm Sandy a week before closing and had no power or internet and limited phone service. Maria and her team allowed us to close smoothly and on time.
Darhl and Claudine Stultz from Clearwater08/02/2012
"Maria did a super job of both selling our house in Largo (in 9 days for our listing price!) and helping us find a new place in Clearwater. She and her team were a pleasure to work with and handled our many questions/problems with a smile and professionalism."
The McGriffs from Seminole, Florida01/06/2012
"Thank you for all of your time and dedication during our home search. Finding our first house could have been a stressful event, and we appreciate everything you have done to make it a more enjoyable time. We enjoyed your sometimes brutally honest personality and are glad that we met you! If we ever come across someone who needs an honest Realtor, we'll be sure to send them to you."
Mrs. Jones from Largo07/29/2011
"Maria was great!! We were so worried doing a short sale; and she gave us all the information, support and referrals that we need to make it the right decision for our family. Working with her and her team was so easy and best of all she sold our condo!!!"
