Reviews from people who have worked with me.

Summary of their experience
I found Maria by browsing Zillow for highly rated real estate agents in the Rockville/Germantown area of Maryland. I was specifically looking for an agent with good but not exceedingly high turnover rate because I expect personal attention. In that sense this is also a review of a Zillow search for an agent. In short – I got exactly what I was looking for. Maria is a very competent and knowledgeable real estate agent who is also an easygoing person. She is very good at coming back to you with answers to your questions and general advice. I never felt pressured about making the important decisions, which was very important for me. Maria is just there for you. I was not a first time buyer but committing to a house is always an anxious experience. Maria helped me navigate the process with ease. I had complete confidence in her throughout the entire experience. So much so that at the end, after I bought a house, I asked her to recommend contractors to do some improvements I wanted done. Perhaps not surprisingly, they also did an excellent job. I would recommend her to a friend without any hesitation – a top professional with connections to other top professionals! When it is time to move I hope she is still around.

I found the previous reviews accurate and useful, so if you are looking for an agent Zillow is the way to go in my experience.

5/20/2014 Grateful to be simplifying life. The renovation and sale has been a huge distraction during a consuming time. It has required patience, perseverance and dying to the love of money in the process. So, relieved to be moving on is a better description than happy. Fortunately, my joy is in Christ, the unchanging one! Maria, great job in serving us on the sale.  You exceeded all of my expectations! Thank you for a job well done.

Sold a Condo home for approximately $350K in Gaithersburg, MD.

Maria has been my agent for over 15 years. I have bought and sold several houses, with her assistance all the way. I have also referred 4 different friends to her who were all very impressed with Maria's knowledge, skills, and her understanding of the local market. When I moved out of the area, she helped me find an agent and was waiting to help me find a new home when I was moving back. She handles all the details, keeps everything moving forward and on track. Give her a call, your going to love her.

I have been working personally and professional with Maria for 20+ years. She has been instrumental in helping my clients buy and sell homes, as well as me. It is her professionalism, determination, and overall knowledge that has helped in the most difficult times to get the job done. I would use her and recommend her over anyone else!

Bought a Single Family home  for approximately $250K in Sykesville, MD
We recently bought a house in Sykesville and Maria was our real estate agent.She kept us up with all the new listings and was very flexible when we wanted to go see houses. She was great about keeping up with us when it had been a while since we had talked. She talked us through the process of buying a house and I feel she did an excelent job of preparing us for what to expect. When we put a contract on a house, she had a wonderful organizer she gave to us to help us keep our papers straight. She helped us get a great deal and was in contact with the seller on a weekly basis. She was always quick to answer our questions and if she didnt have the answer she would let us know and got back to us as soon as she got the answer. Thoughout the entire process her main concern was that we were getting a house that was perfectly suited for us and what we needed in a house. Even after we bought the house she called to make sure we were happy and was back in contact with the seller because a few things were not working as they should have been. Maria Kolick is a wonderful real estate agent and we will be using her again when we are ready to buy our next house. We highly recommend her for anyone looking to buy a house.

Maria has helped sell two of our houses, and we have had her as an agent in buying another two houses. She is very knowledgable, friendly and professional. Her level of service and client care is beyond excellent. She negotiated a short sale for us and we went to settlement withing 30 days, it was an awesome experience!

I would highly recommend her services.

Bought a Condo for approximately $250K in Gaithersburg, MD.
Maria helped my husband and I buy our first home in September 2010. She guided us through the whole process from beginning to end, and even afterward. Maria knows the area well, and was so patient with us as we narrowed our search. Any time we needed her, she was right there with a quick response to any and every question we had. We are still new to the area, and Maria is very helpful in recommending local businesses and services. We can't imagine having done it without her.

Sold a home 

Maria was outstanding in helping putting my house on the market in Feb of 2010 just before the snowstorms hit the area. She assisted with recommendations on staging the house, helping with the last minute details and more importantly, pricing the house according to the market. I had 4 offers - 2 days after the house had been on the market.

Maria also helped me find my new home and was very insightful in the pricing of the area homes and helpful with negotiating the buying price.

Sold a Single Family home  for approximately $525K in Germantown, MD.

Maria helped us through the entire process of getting our house ready, pricing it appropriately, listing it, showing it, obtaining a great contract, and making the entire transaction smooth and trouble free. She kept on top of the process and provided the best professional advice and service from the first meeting to the final walk through. And by the way, thanks to Maria, our house sold in 3 days!
