While growing up in Brooklyn, Maria Oblow was exposed to the real estate industry through her Great Aunts, who invested in various properties around Brooklyn and Jersey City. While raising her, they also instilled a strong work ethic, an enthusiasm for “getting a deal done” and an appreciation for being resourceful. Possessing an entrepreneurial spirit, Maria used these competencies to start her own business in Park Slope which she ran for over six years and eventually sold. As a small business owner, she learned the importance of working under pressure, meeting deadlines and managing people – both employees and customers. All of these experiences, along with her integrity and loyal demeanor, translate well to real estate, allowing her to be a fantastic resource for her clients and customers every step of the way, from the initial search for a property, to the negotiation, the closing and beyond.
Maria and her husband moved to Hoboken from Brooklyn over a decade ago. They were attracted to its unique character, proximity to New York City, diversity and nightlife. Starting a family with twin boys has also allowed her to appreciate a totally different aspect of the Mile Square, including its schools, parks and other kid-friendly activities. As a result, Maria possesses extensive knowledge of Hoboken’s neighborhoods as well as the surrounding area.
Maria joined the Halstead team in Hoboken in January 2015. She was “sold” on Halstead’s stellar reputation, focus on service, expansive network and innovative thinking. A definite “win-win” for her and clients.
When not at work, you can find Maria enjoying Hoboken, whether with her family at one of its many parks or restaurants, shopping at the farmer’s market for the week or working out at her neighborhood gym.
