A Word From My Clients...

"She was very knowledgeable about the city. She answered all our questions anytime of the day things came up. Very helpful and knowledgeable in all aspects of the buying experience."

Jaime Matthies, Gig Harbor (Buyer)

"Maria Kalafatich knows what she is doing. She is always available and timely. She made us feel comfortable with the overall sales plan and potential result. She is a very effective advocate for her clients. Highly recommended."

John Grevstad Tacoma, WA (Seller)

"We had an agent previous to Maria. He dropped the ball so many times that I got frustrated and left him. He recommended Maria and another agent to us to take over the sale. After interviewing them both, it was obvious Maria was the better choice. She was personable, honest, and always looking out for our best interests. In fact, she wouldn't take the property at first because she thought for sale by owner would serve us better!

Again, she's amazing. The most human, accessible agent I've ever worked with.

In the end, we are extremely grateful for all of the hard work Maria put in on this transaction even if we were slightly disappointed with the final terms of the deal."

Marie & Christopher, Tacoma (Seller)

"Maria helped us become 1st time home owners then helped us sell that home for a great profit and purchase our long-term 2nd home. She is always fun and professional, she listened to our needs and wants and always gave realistic expectations to us."

Corey & Tarimah Williams (Seller)

"I appreciate Maria taking time to figure out what I wanted, and more importantly what i felt I was comfortable paying. She was instrumental in me getting a mortgage that worked for me as well. On top of all that Maria is friendly, and strongly represented me when meeting with sellers' agents. My daughter will be requesting Maria in another year or so, as she gets her downpayment. Any other newcomers to the area will get my recommendation for Maria, as well."
