    Helped me buy home
    Maria made buying a new construction house in NE Ankeny as easy as possible. I wish my prior home buying experience went as well as this one did! Naturally, there were a few bumps in the road as I was trying to figure out what I actually needed for a house. Figuring out what you want/need can be hectic and fast paced, Maria always did a great job smoothing out the process and keeping things organized. Above all else, I appreciated how Maria followed up after I closed on my house to check how things were going. It really shows that she is invested in the community and the people she represents.

    Maria is absolutely top notch! When relocating to Iowa she worked with us through the whole process from working a lender not common to the area to helping us narrow our search while I was in Japan and my family was in NC. All during COVID! She will be our realtor when we move next too. Honest, responsive and with a genuine concern for her clients she has my highest recommendation.

    Maria is an amazing realtor to work with, and we have worked with her twice now (both as buyers and sellers). She is knowledgeable of all aspects of the buying and selling process, and takes the extra time to make sure her clients understand all their options and make the most informed decisions possible. Maria goes out of her way to help in anyway she can. Can’t recommend her enough.

    Maria was an absolute joy to work with. She handled the sale of our home with the ultimate in professionalism, flexibility and efficiency. Her willingness to go above and beyond for us during a VERY crazy and stressful time in our lives made things SO much easier for us. I would strongly encourage you to use Maria as your realtor!!

    Helped me buy home
    I would highly recommend Maria. She is extremely knowledgeable about the greater DesMoines area. When we recently decided to move from the suburban Chicago area, we knew very little about where we wanted to be in DSM. Maria did most of the legwork for us, as we were 5 hours away. She researched, previewed and gave us the pros and cons of the dozens and dozens of homes we were considering. Most of all, she was patient and never seemed like were being unreasonable, although at times I am sure we were. In addition, she recommended lenders, insurance agents, inspectors, repair guys and, most important, her insight to the neighborhoods we were considering - growth, traffic, ongoing construction, querks of the HOA’s and more. It took us about 4 months to find what we were after and Maria was a rock star in helping with the decision. I have bought many homes in my life but this was the best experience I have had.

    Buying a home for the first time can obviously be pretty stressful, but Maria made the whole process feel relatively easy. She did a great job of weighing pros and cons with me for the homes I was considering, so I always felt comfortable and informed with my decisions. And she never said no to any of my crazy last-minute requests to go check out one more house! Two thumbs up - thanks, Maria!

    Helped me buy home
    We met with Maria after our local realtor recommended her for our move and we couldn't have chosen any better ourselves! She was patient and very knowledgeable of the area. Her advice was invaluable and during the stressful process of moving, house hunting and welcoming our first child, she remained calm and kept us on track. We would gladly seek her help again in the future!

    We worked with Maria for almost 2 years and eventually settled on building. Maria was with us through the lengthy process and guided us through all the phases of construction. Her expertise was invaluable, and we would recommend her to anyone.

    When I first interviewed Maria via phone, she answered all of my questions and even though some of my questions were quite pointed she had a calm knowledgeable demeanor that was impressive. After meeting her, I knew we had made the right choice to choose her for our Realtor. Although our process was lengthy, 2 years, she continued to maintain contact with us throughout, clarifying our "wants and needs", pointing us the right direction. When our timeline became a short deadline, Maria stepped up to the plate and made us a priority. She provided all the help we needed, even when we couldn't think about what the next step would be, she was there directing us, giving us options, and offering wisdom and guidance when we asked her for it. Maria has been the best Realtor and we HIGHLY recommend her and her knowledge of Ankeny Realty, plus her very professional business acumen.
