What do Clients Say?

I cannot say enough about Maria. She is bright, knowledgeable, on the ball and was extremely responsive to our needs. She sold our house in two weeks and was available 24/7 if we had questions and concerns. She literally "held my hand" through this very emotional downsizing process. She also found us a condo and managed to coincide the closings and moves. We would recommend Maria to anyone who is looking for an extremely competent, and compassionate broker.

Purchaser, Old Bethpage, NY

I have known Maria for around 14 years. She is incredibly knowledgeable and without a doubt, the hardest working individual I have ever known in any field I have been a real estate attorney for nearly 20 years, and I have witnessed first hand Maria selling houses that other agents either give up on or can not sell. There have been several deals that I felt could not be closed, but Maria kept plugging away and somehow got them closed. She not only cares about the deal, she cares deeply for all of her clients. I have never seen another agent become part of the extended family for so many of her clients. Maria is easy to work with, bright, energetic and ALWAYS gets the deal done! I could not give a higher recommendation. No matter the situation, if you want to buy or sell your home. Maria Kafetzis is the person to call.

I have had the pleasure of working with Maria for almost 5 years now and I am constantly impressed by her knowledge, professionalism and humanity when it comes to dealing with her clients. She is an asset to every transaction I am involved in with her and her tireless energy and work ethic is evident from the introduction to the client through closing. Her optimism and warm disposition make her even more of a delight to work with and I recommend her highly for anyone in the real estate market who is looking for a true professional. Maria will far exceed your expectations.
