Maria Scott
International Presidents Elite

I am an experienced commercial real estate executive who recently used Maria Scott to sell my home in Hillsborough.   With Maria’s guidance, I “refreshed” my dated 20-year old home so that it would appeal to a wider range of buyers.  Maria provided a wealth of design direction and residential construction contacts.    Maria’s market knowledge and savvy in positioning my house as well as negotiating with potential buyers resulted in my selling my house immediately after the remodel was complete, above the list price.


I highly recommend her.  Her knowledge of what needs to be done to sell your house, how to price it, what buyers to negotiate with and how to negotiate the terms and conditions of the contract is excellent.

To whom it may concern...

We (my wife and me) have known Maria for more than a decade, she represented us three times in that period: three purchases and two sales. Simple headline: Maria is very professional and passionate abut what she does, she creates strong market interest in properties, she facilitates readying them for sale with a deliberate eye, she is an honest and open communicator with strong negotiating skills.

Maria has specialized in teh Aragon market, which was really important to us: that specialism was fundamental to building trust in the relationship, creating confidence that her advice to us would be unbiased, fair and helpful.

I have the impression Maria is very well respected within her industry, with connections across teh full spectrum of advisors necessary to complete a house sale/purchase successfully...A strong personality with years of developed skills in her market place. a pleasure to work with.

Dear Maria,

I'm sure you've heard the following a lot over the years from clients but I really wanted to reiterate again:

You are one of the best in the industry and the best we've EVER worked with. Aside from teh great persoanality you have, you are also professioanl in every aspect. Your detail oriented way of presenting each house didn't go unnoticed on our end. Your negotiation style is both strategic and tactical. Very number-oriented and always thinking ahead on behalf of your clients. Very responsive and such a joy to work with.The list can go on and on, but bottom line is you are so good at what you do and it is our honor to be working with you.

To whom it may concern:

We are delighted to act as a reference for Maria Scott. We first met Maria in 2003 when we were beginning the search for our first home in Burlingame. At the time, we had not selected a realtor and met Maria at a Sunday open house. After some time talking with her, we were immediately impressed with her professional insight and enthusiasm. From that day forward, we knew we would be lucky to have her as our realtor.

There are many words that describe Maria – professional, reliable, attentive, thoughtful, pro-active, diligent and energetic to name just a few. She is also an individual who exhibits a welcoming demeanor and is immediately engaging with her clients’ best interests at heart. Maria’s enthusiasm for the home buying process was very important--we wanted a realtor who really listened to our needs. Thankfully, we found that ear in Maria. She took the time to get to know our likes and dislikes and, in the process learn what was important to us in a home. 

In addition, Maria offers a wealth of knowledge about residential real estate on the Peninsula. She invested a significant amount of her time to show us different neighborhoods and educate us about different school districts and community resources. In fact, our relationship did not end with the purchase of our first home – we still call upon her for recommendations for various community resources. 

Our relationship with Maria has gone beyond that of a just a realtor/client. She has become a trusted advisor and friend of our family. We greatly respect her judgment and industry knowledge and without a doubt, will call upon her again when we are ready for our next home.

In a seemingly efficient market, why would one engage an agent in the home buying / selling process? As we quickly came to realize, you need to “stack” your side in what will surely be the biggest financial decision of your life. We were new to the process as first-time home buyers, so a knowledgeable agent proved to be critical, even more so due to the sheer dollars involved here in the Bay Area and the market’s frenzied atmosphere.

With so many agents out there soliciting your business, why choose Maria Scott? The reasons are manifold. First and foremost, she is experienced. She has successfully closed a large number of transactions, and she will help you make the decision that is best for you, not for her. She is a pillar, a cool head in what turns out to be a surprisingly emotional process. Maria’s vast experience has honed her skills as a negotiator; she helped craft our best offer, maximizing our odds of success. In a nutshell, you can count on her to go to bat for you. Further, she handles all the details and logistics with style and grace. She is meticulous and organized, ensuring that the process flows smoothly. Finally, her personal touch is unparalleled. Not only is she smart, competent and reliable but also caring, warm and sincere. Frankly, she is upbeat and simply fun to be around. The real estate search can take time and foster intense emotions, so it is refreshing to have an agent that is a delight.

We cannot endorse Maria strongly enough – she is fantastic! We’d be happy to speak directly on her behalf in further detail …
