“Over the course of a very successful career, Maria has consistently been a top producing agent and outstanding sales leader,” said Ms. Petersen. “Maria has also become prominent among her peers as a coach and mentor for both new and experienced agents, sharing time and contact management practices, marketing plans, and techniques to help expand their business. She is particularly well suited to her expanded role.”
Maria, who recently placed in the top 1000 Top Real Estate Agents in the Nation by Sales Volume (Real Trends) will continue to list and market real estate for her clients and customers, while providing career assistance to agents in Daniel Gale Sotheby’s East Norwich, Cold Spring Harbor, Syosset and Huntington offices. She will also actively recruit new and veteran agents to Daniel Gale Sotheby’s.
“It’s critical that new agents in particular understand the importance of exceptional service, strong negotiating skills, and the aggressive marketing strategies needed to produce the most qualified buyers and the best possible price,” explains Maria. “I can help my colleagues gain the additional expertise required to provide results in all price ranges, and increase their individual success.”
Maria lives in the Wincoma area of Huntington Bay with her husband and French bulldog “Stella,” has twin daughters who live in New York City, and enjoys traveling, gardening, cooking, and playing tennis and golf.
