“Thank you, Maria. And by the way can I say how much of a pleasure it’s been working with you on finding a home for my family. You are, by far, the most engaging, efficient, caring and professional broker I’ve ever come across.” ~ Michael

“We loved working with Maria when we sold our house in Pleasantville and bought in Mount Kisco almost 5 years ago. She was the first person I called when we needed to find a place for my sister-in law. Our recent experience of working with Maria was every bit as successful as the last, even with some unique challenges with timing and ADA needs….The process was seamless and very efficient despite difficult circumstances. She is a fantastic advocate for her clients, …..largely because she wanted the best outcome for us too. Many thanks not just for all your hard work and professionalism, but for the good deeds that accompanied it.” ~ Kate & Stephen

Maria LaGattuta is a true professional! So much so that we just completed our third successful real estate transaction with Maria as the broker. In addition to her excellent marketing expertise, Maria is a constant resource from beginning to completion of the sales process." ~ Georgene & Mike

“I felt I should write to you to express my satisfaction with the time and efforts you put forth as our realtor handling our family home in Bedford, New York. I feel like you are a member of our family now that you have successfully found homes for my sister, my daughter and sold my niece’s home. Your incredible patience, energy, enthusiasm and knowledge of current market trends proved invaluable. Your evaluation of … were spot on when finding them the home they purchased in Katonah. Thank you again for all you have done for my family and I wish you the best in the future and you will be our first call when we’re ready to sell!” ~ M.R.

“It was amazing to work with Maria LaGattuta. Not only did I find her warm, funny, and kind, but she also really, I mean really, knows what she is doing. I always felt like she had MY best interest in mind, and in areas where I felt insecure she made me feel validated. I would work with Maria again in a heartbeat!!” ~ Viktoria

“From our first meeting, we knew that Maria was the right person to take us through this process. We greatly appreciated her extensive knowledge of the area and the house buying process. She took note of what we wanted and made sure to show us houses that fit our needs and expectations while keeping us within budget. We look forward to the continued friendship we developed while working with Maria.” ~ Liz & Carlos

“Maria was not only extremely knowledge about the area we were looking in but she also understood what we were looking for. Maria never dismissed our goals and was incredibly patient, waiting until something just right came along. As first- time house-buyers, this patience and understanding was essential. After the sale, she continues to follow up with us as a professional and now neighbor. We could not have asked for a better experience and highly recommend Maria to anyone looking for a home. With many thanks.” ~ Laura & Ryan

“Maria is friendly, honest, reliable and she paid close attention to detail. When you’re buying a home, especially in a rush, you need someone to walk you through the unavoidable glitches. Without Maria, I can’t imagine us making it through the purchase of our home. She’s patient, motivated, and careful, and she will make sure that your priorities are hers as well. We can’t recommend her highly enough! We love the house.” ~ Jennifer & Adam

“I just wanted to take the time to thank you again for all your help. Both our sale and purchase were fraught with problems and you were professional, informative, and supportive the entire time. You never got flustered and with your expertise, both deals got done. We will definitely recommend you and Douglas Elliman to anyone we know who might be looking for the services of a realtor. Thank you again!” ~ Dawn & Brendan

“Although we weren’t first time homebuyers, we were first time buyers in Westchester and new to Northern Westchester. Maria was excellent from start to finish through the process. Always very engaging and attentive, Maria helped our family find and buy a terrific house in an unbelievable Chappaqua neighborhood (while enjoying the process along the way). Highly recommend her to anyone, just a terrific person and professional. “~ Evran and Megan

“I have been involved in 4 real estate transactions on the "sell side" and used 4 different agents. Maria was the best, hands down! She brought so much positive energy and effort to the sale of my house -- it was amazing. She was very insightful about the market in general as well as my local market and really helped me figure out the appropriate selling price. She was very good at communicating with all the prospective buyers' agents, discussing our options and formulating smart responses. Once we accepted an offer she was excellent at driving the contracting process to closure. Because of her thoroughness and tenacity everything went pretty smoothly and we closed right on schedule. In conclusion, I would definitely use Maria again and highly recommend her to anyone else, without any reservations.” ~ Steve

“Now that I am settled in my new home, I wanted to express my gratitude to you. Although I had found the house on my own, without an agent, I quickly came to realize that I still needed an agent to guide me through the process…. you were of invaluable help to me when it came to working out how to proceed with the sellers. I was very comfortable with you representing me and was impressed by your accessibility, positive outlook, and found you to be just the right kind of support needed when purchasing my new home. I will happily recommend you to anybody looking to buy a home.” ~ E.F.

“I can't express just how fortunate I feel to have worked with Maria. I spoke to a number of real estate agents, looking for someone genuine, someone with integrity, smarts, and lots of energy. Maria had that in spades. She looked for return on investment (her MBA at work!). Then, she laid the groundwork so well we received five offers in the first week! When one of those inevitable unknowns was about to derail the sale and I was losing hope, she completely amazed me. I have never seen anyone so tenacious, so hard working, and so devoted to making sure I got the best offer possible. I feel really lucky to have worked with Maria.” ~ Jean & Tom

“Preparing your home to sell is never easy and I dreaded making that call. But, the second I met with Maria, I knew I had made the right decision! She listened to my goals; and then, with her eye for design, came up with some practical and inexpensive suggestions on how to make my home presentable in just a few weeks, resulting in multiple offers after the first showing. She is proactive and was always two steps ahead of the process to ensure everything went as smoothly and quickly as possible. Her professionalism, personality and passion made her a real pleasure to work with and I look forward to working with her again on the sale of my fiancé’s home. I would never work with anyone else!” ~ Jane

“Maria was instrumental in helping us find the home of our dreams. After seven grueling months, and nearly a hundred homes, Maria always exuded patience, understanding and dedication to ensure we were narrowing in on homes within our criteria. Maria was extremely knowledgeable about most areas of Westchester and we couldn't have landed where we are without her. We would fully recommend Maria LaGattuta for any prospective home buyer in Westchester County.” ~ Jessica & Jordan

“Thank you for all your support and guidance in making buying our house a reality. What was a daunting task became a journey and an adventure with you. Among the many wonderful qualities that you exude those that stand out the most are your dedication to clients and being a reflective listener. Your calming nature and disposition made buying a house a comforting experience. Thank you for making our journey memorable and special.” ~ Marisa & Andy

“Maria was such a pleasure to work with! She marketed our house in a way that allowed all of the hard work we put into it to shine! She was very responsive to any questions or ideas we presented her. Maria was always professional and courteous with everyone she dealt with during our selling experience. We would absolutely recommend Maria to anyone for their future real estate experience!” ~ Karen & Michael

“Thank you! You did an amazing job with a really tough property to sell. Your dedication to getting our house sold was above and beyond what I would have expected from a realtor. I really appreciated your advice and guidance in giving our house the best appearance and presence possible. I was more than happy with the number of both public and realtor open houses. You really put so much effort into our property. A HUGE thanks for getting our home sold so we could move on!” ~ Tracie

“We had met many realtors, but there something about Maria we really liked. She was easy going and seemed to really listen to us genuinely, wanting to know more about who we were. Maria worked very hard for us; finding houses she thought would fit, always checking things that I forgot to, and pointing things out that (having never owned a house) never occurred to me to look for. She has knowledge of the cost to replace and/or repair things both major and minor, and when she was unsure, would refer us to someone who did know. We always felt like we were important to her. Maria never seemed to have a down day; she was personable with a genuine smile and really enjoys her work. She was a true asset to us. My husband and I will recommend Maria LaGattuta to anyone who will listen.” ~ Karen & Bill

“We couldn't be more pleased that we found and hired Maria. She was incredibly professional and supportive during the process of selling one home and buying another that required renovations. She knew exactly what our priorities were and helped us through the entire process, educating us on different market factors that helped us make the best decision for our family. She has gone "above and beyond" by staying in touch throughout a year of construction with both encouragement and updates on recent sales and comps in our new neighborhood to ensure we invest wisely in our new home. In the process, she has gotten to know the entire family, all of whom have nothing but great praise for her. We have, and will continue to recommend Maria to anyone looking to buy or sell their home. She handled both for us and we couldn't be more pleased with her work.” ~ Kate & Stephen

“Recently, my husband and I worked with Maria LaGattuta to sell our Katonah home. Maria worked diligently to provide us with information on home sales in our area as well as current market prices so we could list our house at a competitive price. Along with a successful realtor open house, resulting in 14 viewings in the first weekend, we were able to entertain several offers after just one week on the market. Maria worked with all the different parties to negotiate the best offer for us. Maria was also able to find us a great condominium in the area. She listened to our needs and in no time we were able to close and move into our new place.” ~ Janet & John

“Maria was a consummate professional, helping us stage and sell our house in record time! We knew from the minute we met her that we wanted to work with her. Her warmth and friendliness were exactly what we needed during the highly stressful process of moving. She was knowledgeable, available and professional, three things one should expect from their real estate agent. We trusted her implicitly with our home, our belongings, and throughout the process in general. Selling our home was a smooth and successful process in Maria's hands. We highly recommend using her and have given her name to friends already. We cannot thank her enough.” ~ Pamela & Jeff

“I just want to thank you again for the incredible job you did helping me sell my condo in Bedford Hills, NY. Your positive attitude and pleasant personality made it easy to work with you, and your professionalism and expertise gave me the confidence you always knew what you were doing. Even though mine was probably a relatively small sale for you, you always made me feel like I was your only client. …I really believe this sale would not have happened if it were not for your diligence and determination. …I plan to tell anyone looking to buy or sell property that you are the agent they should work with. Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!!!” ~Tom R

“… Maria is a Realtor who adds value. She was looking everywhere in Westchester for us and sending us only what she thought were the best houses for us. …She gave us impartial feedback on houses and helped us get the house we wanted. I definitely recommend Maria, she is likable, dedicated and looked out for our best interest.” ~ Nicolas & Eva

“Maria LaGattuta professionally marketed our home from beginning to end. She conducted market analysis, created an effective sales strategy and personally interfaced 100 percent with potential buyers. Maria’s professionalism allowed us to sell our beautiful home in thirteen days while meeting our asking price!”~ Georgene & Mike

“Maria rapidly knew what we were looking for in a home which made house hunting very efficient for us. Since we were new to this country, we were glad to work with someone who clearly acted in our best interest and promptly tried to clarify every question or request. The service we received from Maria was much more than we expected and whoever gets the chance to work with her can be considered lucky.” ~ Dagmar & Gerald

“Maria advised us in considerable detail how to prepare our home for showings. Her suggestions were very specific and proved to be extremely helpful. The house was sold not long after we started showing it and we felt that Maria’s advice was a major factor in the sale. She negotiated an excellent sale price and we were very pleased with the results. Throughout the negotiations she represented us admirably. We can recommend Maria without reservations.” ~ Ruth & Mort

“Maria brings energy and a commitment to get the deal done. She looked me in the eye and said, ‘I will sell your home’. She delivered what she promised. In five months I had four offers and went to contract in January. She is a joy to do business with.” ~ Tom

“I can’t say enough about our family’s experience with our Realtor Maria LaGattuta. ……we immediately trusted her. She never once yielded from being there for each step of the process and every transaction. She consistently pressed hard to present our home and utilize every opportunity to advertise and spread the word of our pending sale. We have not hesitated to recommend her to anyone who is thinking of buying or selling their home. “~ Sarah

“When buying a home, Maria is the real estate agent you want to work with. She is knowledgeable, caring and compassionate. She is always available when she says she will be and gets back to you in a timely manner with any additional information you may need. ….. this is the first home I purchased on my own and I was glad to have Maria working alongside of me.” ~ Mary

“Maria is passionate about her work and very easy to work with. We did a lot of homework beforehand, and we knew we wanted the Chappaqua area. Maria gave us all the background information on the properties we chose and set up times very convenient for us in the time frame we requested. …Maria was diligent through the entire process.” ~ Al

“There are many wonderful things to say about Maria, but one of her attributes that deserves pointing out is the fact that she listens well. Prior to Maria, we looked at approximately forty homes. …We are so grateful that she listened so well to what we had to say because Maria was able to find us exactly the house we were looking for. We are now living in Mount Kisco and we could not be happier!” ~ Sean and Melissa
