About Maria Capela

Business Philosophy

Provide excellent service to my clients when selling or buying their home with dedication, honesty, integrity and knowledge.

Affiliated with the real estate firm #1 market sharer in this area and the corporate resources to provide an aggressive marketing strategy to promote your property worldwide and generate demand to ensure my clients can always count on nothing less than First Class results.

My corporate background has provided me with the skills in identifying the ideal property best suitable for my clients with a proactive approach to problem solving and always maintaining a can do attitude.

My international background, extensive travel to Europe having worked for a multi-national corporation for many years, gives me the unique ability to work with various cultures and understand diverse client needs. 

I will be your full time advocate and partner throughout the transaction process from the time you list your property with me to closing, and hopefully a friend long thereafter!


There was no high-pressured sales pitch; rather, she guided me, helping me form my strategy and often instructing me in real estate matters of which I was not aware.  She was there for me throughout the entire process even after the house was sold.  She reads one's concerns ery well and was able to put my worries about the sale in perspective.  Would I choose to use Maria Capela as my realtor again?  Without a doubt   - Susan Robbins

I had a wish list of what I wanted in a home.  Maria found the perfect home for me, with more great things than I had imagined! her warmth and personal attention to her job put me at ease.  Buying a home was a big deal for me, but Maria made the process a pleasure.  I will be sure to recommend her to anyone I know who's looking to purchase.   Thanks for having her as part of your team  - Rochelle Schiano

 Maria is a true professional and friend.  I met Maria by chance, but would like to think that my guardian angel sent her my way.  She had a manor about her that doesn't make you feel like you're dealing with a sales person, but more like you are working with family.  We took her advice and within one week of listing our home, we were under contract for the exact price we hoped it would sell for.  She also listened to our requests and honestly cared to help us find the home we were looking for.   - Andrea LaZaro
