"Maria was a joy to work with! We knew we were in capable hands from the beginning of our application process for our new apartment. She made a potentially stressful process very easy. Maria was responsive, courteous, and knowledgeable about both the neighborhood and rental market. She has kept in touch since we moved in to see if there was anything else she could help with. We feel that she truly cared about us and our needs and we recommend her very highly!" - Emilio and Chris

"Maria was amazing in helping me purchase my first apartment here in NYC. As a first-time buyer, I came across lots of challenges with limited options in my price range and limited knowledge of the real estate market and buying process. Maria guided me through the entire process showing me as many apartments as I could fit in to get the best idea of what I wanted, putting together multiple offers in short time frames and negotiating pricing and terms. She informed me about credit, prepped me for board interviews, found me a handyman to help with initial renovations, and is still to this day offering help with anything I need. Maria was kind and flexible with her time. I was so pleased and would highly recommend her!" - Marie

"Although not new to home buying, we were unfamiliar with the complex process of buying a coop in Manhattan. The sanest decision we made was to work with Maria Vourlides, the seller’s realtor, and not invite a ‘buyer-realtor’ into a complex process she clearly knew how to manage. Her singular goal was to help us all get to a succinct closing. Maria ensured we were aware of every step we had to take, every “t” crossed, every “i” dotted, every single detail needed to get the board and management agency their required magnitude of paperwork, and be with us at closing. She is the hardest working and most detailed realtor I have EVER had the pleasure to work with." - Anna and Patrick

"We all know apartment hunting in New York City can be overwhelming and even scary. Thankfully, Maria helped guide us to our dream apartment! Maria kept our needs top of mind and made the whole process simple and anxiety free. Would definitely recommend her for anyone making a move big or small! ." - George and Anna

"First interaction with Maria was for my Daughter who was looking to buy her first apartment, in NYC … We stopped in her office with only few hours in front of us and she got us started on the fly! From there she went through a tireless journey to have my daughter visit places to find the best balance between what she was looking for and could afford. Shortly after, I found out I was transferring from Dubai to NYC and she was now in charge of a second apartment search. It’s been a pleasure to work with her … With a difficult agenda, she made herself available at any convenient time for us … constantly following up with new search, visits planning, offer updates, lawyers… But also, great expertise of the entire purchase process, including the unbelievably cumbersome Coop board approval. Next thing we know, my son was moving to Miami and looking for an apartment and she found a terrific local agent to help him. Three months later, we all have a new home which we really enjoy. Thanks Maria, it was an awesome experience working with you and sorry for having you organize so many visits to decide the 1st one was the right one ☺ … your kindness, professionalism, determination made a huge difference with all our family transitions." - Frederic
