Available, Helpful, and Thorough.

This review refers to properties purchased and sold between 2000 – 2011 (from a 1 bedroom condominium to a luxury waterfront property)

My husband and I have worked with Maria on 4 seperate occasions over the past 11 years. She helped us sell my condo and buy our home in 2001, we
purchased 2 condos in 2009, 2010, and in 2011 she helped us sell my mother’s waterfront home in Bellingham. She was able to market in such a way, that we received 2 solid offers in the first 2 days! I will explain the details. We will not work with anyone other than Maria Riggins.

We originally found Maria through a property we were interested in for our new home, back in 2000. Her knowledge and availability stood out immediately. Maria was there for us. I can’t express this enough. It underscores who she is. She gave us honest advice and clear instructions as needed. She even arrived in the evening, flashlight in hand, to help us. She made the purchase easy. It was a small 1800 sq ft home; yet Maria made us feel like we were her most important clients. She has been a pleasure to work with, each and every time. In 2011, Maria helped us sell my mother’s 3500+ sq ft waterfront home, on the Chuckanut. She traveled back and forth from Seattle, without any hestiation. She met with my 87 year old mother and helped her through the process of ‘letting go’ of her home. Maria has business savvy, integrity, energy, caring and a positive outlook on life. Maria walked through the house and let us know what we needed to accomplish, in order to show the house to it’s best advantage, weeks before placing on the market. Her attention to detail was brilliant. She staged the home, helped me fix sliding doors, and knew exactly how to market the house. The photographs she had taken were amazing. She created a video which had over 4000 viewings in the first 2 days, alone. By end of day two, in this terrible market, we had 2 solid offers for her home. We sold to an International buyer who purchased for cash, at our price (no negotiations) and closed within 30 days. It was Brilliant marketing by Maria, which accomplished this feat!

In 2009 and 2010, Maria took the time out of her busy schedule to help us purchase condominiums for 2 of our son’s. These were small real estate purchases; yet, Maria was as available, helpful and thorough, as always. She helped one son with a short sale, making it all feel seamless. On the second purchase, my other son was interested in 3 different counties. Maria tirelessly met with me to see several different properties in various locations. Once again, her magic flashlight was needed, and all these years later, she still carries one in her car, just in case.

Maria Riggins is professional and honest. She will provide exceptional service to anyone who commissions her for thier purchase and/or sale agreements.
