"Not just a talented realtor, but also an amazing person who always puts her clients first. No matter how challenging or complicated the deal, Maria-Stella will find a path to the best outcome. In fact, the more complex the deal, the more Maria-Stella thrives. She's smart, creative, ceaselessly optimistic, and just great at what she does. Whether it's finding a new home for your family or business, it can be extremely stressful. It was so reassuring to have Maria-Stella working tirelessly—both behind the scenes and on the front lines—to find creative solutions. I've worked with quite a few realtors, but never received the kind of personalized and compassionate service that I received from Maria-Stella. I couldn't recommend her more highly." - Ken"Maria-Stella proved to be a breath of fresh air in the headache that is NYC real estate. Throughout the incredibly lengthy process of dealing with landlords in addition to a large management company, Maria-Stella took the burden off of myself and allowed me to breeze through the process from beginning to end. Without her incredible diligence, work ethic, patience, positive attitude, and knowledge, I would not have been able to find my dream home. Whereas apartment searches are typically stressful and painfully tedious, my experience was exciting and positive, entirely thanks to Maria-Stella and her consistently incredible work ethic and demeanor. I cannot sing her praises enough!" - Alexandra"I had the pleasure of having Maria-Stella as our realtor as we bought our new apartment. She was very thorough and held our hands throughout the purchase and board application processes. She connected us with a great banker and ensured we were all a team. Having a realtor who goes above and beyond is rare so I will say that I was lucky to have her. I would recommend Maria-Stella to anyone who is buying or selling a home. A true professional with heart." - Shelly"I came to Maria-Stella with little to no knowledge of the market. Maria took our scattered specifications and stuck with us, showing us multiple apartments in a variety of NYC neighborhoods until we were sure we had found what we wanted. Throughout the entire process she provided us with helpful information about the real estate market as well as neighborhood details that we feel other realtors may not have taken the time to inform us of. Her patience and knowledge made our search an exciting and positive experience.” - Alison
