What Clients Are Saying
Maria was totally professional, qualified, and committed to my sale. She provided many suggestions which were helpful and did not get discouraged or give up. She also remained totally available and on hand right through the closing process. She will go above and beyond for you.

I would recommend Maria to anyone selling or buying. During our process of selling houses and buying our homes, Maria was extremely helpful, knowledgeable, and proactive. In an incredibly challenging buying market, her expertise kept us informed and ultimately led us to secure our dream home. We felt like she was part of our family.

Maria was wonderful to deal with. When I called her to sell my home, she did her research and put the house on the market at a competitive price and it sold during the first open house! She and her staff made moving out of my home of 30 years so much easier. She was professional but also understanding of my emotional attachment to the house. She went over everything with me step by step and made sure I understood everything. She always returned my calls and was very hands-on. I have no hesitation recommending Maria to my friends and family.

We met Maria at an open house and decided to work with her based on our impression of her professionalism with her clients and staff. She carried this professionalism to the sale of our house and was a trustworthy, responsible advisor throughout the process.

I can’t speak highly enough of Maria as our real estate agent. Her professionalism, knowledge, honesty, integrity, and hard work ethics are very much appreciated and respected. She is detail-oriented, honest, and good at making it work. I was so very lucky to find her. I would use Maria a million times over.

During our search for a real estate agent to sell our home, Maria Salzillo was the one whose credentials and reputation stood out to us. From the moment we met her, we could tell she loved her job. With her warm and sincere personality, we clicked immediately and signed a contract with her.
Little did we know that selling our home, would, unfortunately, be put on hold just days after that, because of COVID 19. But Maria kept us informed in the interim on what was going on in the real estate market. We trusted her when she gave us the thumbs up a few months later, to proceed. She promised us, with this new way of selling a home, that all precautions would be taken (showings by appointment only, social distancing, and everyone would wear a mask and sanitize their hands before entering). She and her assistant, Laurie, assured us that after each showing, anything that was touched in our home would be sanitized. Our home was sold within two weeks after being on the market, due to her knowledge, professionalism, and clear communications, especially during this crazy time. My husband and I could not be happier that we chose Maria Salzillo as our selling agent and strongly recommend her to sell your home.

Maria was a pleasure to work with. She guided me through some tough market conditions during the Covid pandemic and was a skilled negotiator when the market finally broke loose! Her personal style and knowledge of the local market was a winning combination. I give her my highest recommendation.

Maria is very thorough, knowledgeable, active, professional, positive, and extremely capable of selling a home. Maria has helped me sell a prior home very quickly and help me purchase a new home with the help of her knowledge and skills. My recent home was sold by the first showing. I respect and appreciate Maria‘s understanding of the selling market and ability to help me negotiate to get a fair price for my home. I would strongly recommend Maria and definitely use her in the future.
Maria was always available by phone day or night. She takes her job very seriously and wants to please her clients.
I would never consider using another broker other than Maria. She’s so committed to her job, knowledgeable, caring, Accessible day or night, familiar with the area and is personally committed to helping sell your property.

Real Satisfied Testimonials

Bought a Condo home in 2015 in Danvers, MA. Maria not only helped us find our present home but helped us sell our home at the same time. She was always available to us either by phone, text or email. Her expertise in the real estate field was a plus and her suggestions were very helpful and fruitful as we sold for more than we originally thought we would be listing for, her suggestion! I have already told friends who are looking for an agent that Maria is the one! We plan on keeping her card on file for our next move in the future.

I bought my first house with Maria. She really helped me throughout the process - very knowledgeable about the areas I was looking, the price ranges I wanted, and the process from start to finish. There were a few times when I had questions in the morning and got an answer back almost right away. She's very thoughtful and cares about her clients - the week I closed she mailed a congratulations card to my new house! I've recommended her to 2 of my friends, and hope to be able to work with her again on my future home purchases.

Sold a Single Family home in 2010 in Peabody, MA. Very professional and willing to listen to concerns you may have through a stressful time selling your home. Having had a few homes in my life I can tell you it's not a handshake and a nod anymore you need someone like Maria to help you navigate through the process.

Bought a Condo home in 2014 for approximately $275K in Peabody, MA. Maria cleared up a confusing situation brought on by another broker and before we knew it mom was passing papers on her new townhouse. Maria's expertise, professionalism, and many personal touches made our experience smooth and effortless.

I interviewed 3 brokers. Maria's assessment and listening skills in our first visit gave me confidence she would sell my home. And sell it she did, in 3 days! I highly recommend Maria.

It was a pleasure both meeting and working with you. You were truly professional in every aspect, I will remember that for any future real estate needs, and would not hesitate to refer you to family and friends. One question, what do we do with your sign? We are slowly bringing things into the new house and hopefully will be moved in sometime in September. Thank You again, John and Helena

Hi Maria,

Florence and I want to thank you for the terrific job you did in selling our home. Shortly after signing on with you we realized that we made a great choice. Your vast experience in the business along with your approach to the job left a lasting impression on us. We have a much greater appreciation of how hard you work and how difficult your job is. We have raved about you to our family, friends and neighbors. Going forward, please feel free to use us a reference if needed Best wishes Don

I have had the pleasure of working with Maria on three separate real estate transactions.  This has put me in the unique position of working with Maria as both a buyers and sellers agent.  Maria proved to be equally effective in serving either role.  I was extremely satisfied with the service she provided. 


In each case, she was totally committed from the first introductory step through the final home closing.  Maria’s comprehensive knowledge of both the real estate market and the sales process was invaluable.  This knowledge along with her work ethic resulted in an effective and efficient process that largely drove an expedient closing date for all three transactions. 


Specifics of Maria’s effectiveness include her accessibility (i.e. late evening or early Sunday morning phone calls and flexibility in arranging showings), and ability to keep the process moving (providing complete marketing support, interacting with involved municipalities/home inspectors, ushering necessary paperwork and being in lockstep with the buyers and sellers attorneys, or in some cases a step ahead).  


In the future, should the occasion arise, I would absolutely seek Maria’s services to buy or sell a home.  I also would personally recommend Maria to any friend or acquaintance who may be buying or selling a home.     


Best Regards,
