Growing up in Brooklyn, Maria was exposed to the real estate industry through her Great Aunts, who invested in various properties around Brooklyn and Jersey City. They also instilled in her a strong work ethic, enthusiasm for “getting a deal done” and appreciation for being resourceful. 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. These experiences, along with her integrity and loyal demeanor, have translated 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, diversity and proximity to New York City. Starting a family with twin boys has also allowed her to appreciate a totally different aspect of the Mile Square, including its various parks and the public education system. Maria served as the president of the Parent Teacher Organization (PTO) at her sons’ school, as well as a member of the Hoboken district-wide PTO. 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. In her short time with Halstead she has participated in transactions totaling over $10 million for buyers and sellers, and earning a Bronze designation in NJAR Circle of Excellence (NJAR Circle of Excellence Winner 2015-2017).
