Get To Know Me

Intimate local knowledge and expertise are essential for navigating high-end South Florida real estate transactions and demands a seasoned expert who can strike the necessary balance of poise, tenacity, and execution in the luxury home buying and selling process. After moving from England to South Florida over 30 years ago, Maria fell in love with Fort Lauderdale’s coastal living and luxurious waterfront homes and quickly catapulted herself to the pinnacle of the luxury South Florida real estate market through her genuine passion, unwavering determination, and truly personalized service.

As a top-producing agent in Florida each year, Maria enjoys assisting her clients across the full spectrum of home buying and selling services. Be it on the laid-back Fort Lauderdale waterfront, the luscious Miami beaches, or the regal Palm Beach coastline, she continuously endeavors to provide her clients with best-in-class service on each and every deal.

Maria was born and raised in England and purchased her first house for eleven thousand British pounds at the age of seventeen. Growing up around the historical architecture constructed in the 17th and 18th centuries, she became infatuated with British real estate markets at an early age. After coming to the USA in 1985, Maria quickly adopted the Florida lifestyle as her own. Its tropical real estate environment, white sandy beaches, and crystal-clear waters immediately struck her as paradise, and she has called Florida home ever since. The broad array of property styles – ranging from historical to contemporary – provides an endless selection of beautiful homes and continues to fuel her passion for showcasing them each day. 

Whether working with first-time homebuyers, buyers relocating to South Florida, or sellers looking for their next dream home, Maria’s unparalleled presence, skillset, and service is sure to provide the ideal support for your next luxury real estate transaction.
