"Being outside of the US and trying to sell a house from so far away can be difficult. Maria kept us informed through the process of selling all the way through closing. We recommend her expertise and ability to see clients through any obstacles they may face."

- Stephanie and Jason -Aguadilla, PR

"Maria was outstanding.  I had three realtors before I met Maria.  I was recommended to those realtors as well.  It was the best choice I made to pick up the phone and call.  I could have not seen going through the buying process without her.  I tell everyone how wonderful she is.  She is greatly appreciated for helping me and understanding being a first time home buyer."

- Kris & April Golbiw - Utica, MI

"Buying a home, particularly a short-sale home, should be a harrowing experience.  However, the knowledge, skill, and professionalism of The Maria McGuire Team placed us in a home we love without have to miss as much as a wink of sleep.  Thank you!"

- Jason & Lauren Willey - New Baltimore, MI

"Maria and her team exceeded every expectation I could imagine.  It was made so easy to go through all the steps of finding a property I would be interested in  and the process of examining the property and making an offer to purchase and right up to the closing and taking possession of the property.  All went smooth as silk."

- Robert Hutchinson - Shelby Twp., MI

"Although I have not had many experiences with other real estate agents, I know that after dealing with Maria and her team, I have found one that I can count on from now on."

- Doug & Toni Kraus - New Baltimore, MI

"Buying a house can be a very stressful thing.  I have to say, Maria and her team were always there to get me through.  Anytime I called, I received an answer the same day.  I'm very satisfied with the service I have received and will continue to refer this team to friends and family.  Thanks for doing such a super job."

- Debbie Kensick - Chesterfield, MI

"I don't think you can improve on the service, that's already top of the line!  Maria and your team are the greatest.  Many thanks from me and my family.  A job well done."

- John & Amanda Warner - Lenox, MI

"I was so impressed with the personal attention I received from Maria; the way she advertised (complete with a video of my home for all to see), plus her many connections, along with her always in contact with me.  She worked day and night, what ever it took, and with her work and know how, sold my home in two weeks.  Luck?  Maybe, but she just knew when and where to be to make it happen for me!  But, it just doesn't stop there, her and her first class team kept in touch with me for a month after to make sure all was going well.  I'll never buy or sell with out them!  Thank you!"

- Diane Vollmar - Algonac, MI

"Maria and Team - just a little note to thank you for all the work and support you gave to me on selling my parents home.  It was a sad point in my life as I grew up there, plus it was the last thing of my parents.  You ladies made the process so supportive and easy.  You ladies are very good as you sold the home in one week and for more money than we were asking for.  (Just like you said you would Maria!)  So thanks again, you are the BEST!"

- Mike & Sharon Harrington - Chesterfield, MI

"I bought my home in 2006 when the market was MUCH higher.  Watching all the homes around me being left vacant and selling for 1/3 of what I paid for mine 6 years ago was gut-wrenching.  My husband and I struggled with a $1400/month payment while others we watched were coming in at $600-700/month and we finally came to the point of throwing our hands up.  We didn't want to be those people that walked away from their homes, but it came down to what was best for us and our three children.  Maria graciously sat down with us and the most important thing I took away from our conversation was this:  'YOU are YOUR OWN best advocate.'  I took that statment and ran with it.

The daily phone calls and badgering from the mortgage company finally became too much.  I called them back and basically said...WHAT DO I NEED TO DO??  After MUCH snide attitude from them, they finally told me that there was a program called the Making Homes Affordable program that I may be able to qualify for.  I set up payments with them and meanwhile filled out all the paperwork and did everything I was asked to do with Maria's help.  Three months later, my qualification came back giving us a rate of 2% and a monthly payment of $759.60.  I was in tears and overjoyed at the thought my family and I might actually be able to survive WITH SOME BREATHING ROOM!  We made our 3 month probabtionary payments early and on time in order for the amendment to the mortgage to come into full effect.  We are now about to make our 6th ON TIME payment and it is so much easier to live without the constant stress of scrambling for all that money.

Maria gave us the knowledge and the courage to stand up for ourselves for keeping our home.  The most difficult and crucial point in our lives was helped by Maria's caring and helpful advice." 

- Nick & Anna Benson - Mt. Clemens, MI

"I think your honesty up front that the short sale process can be lengthy and frustrating allows the seller to have a realistic expectation to selling their home."

"Maria is one of my most trusted advisors and friends.  She helped sell our home at a very difficult time and did so with efficiency, professionalism and the type of perserverence to overcome all the stupid and foolish obstacles that mortgage companies and other players in the game of real estate throw at a transaction of our kind.  She carries the banner for all clients, large and small, and makes trusting a sales professional to do the right thing easy and natural."
