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.
