Our Broker-In-Charge is a graduate from the University of Connecticut. She is a former teacher of the Gaston and Cabarrus County school systems. Her tenure as a fourth grade teacher was over shortly after she married and had to explain to 10 year olds that her name would change from Ms. Friend to Mrs. Wurtzbacher. Less than two years later in 2005, she was featured in Realtor Magazine’s 30 Under 30 as one of the country’s most up and coming young agents. Additionally, she is a graduate of the Realtor’s Institute (GRI) and holds the certified Residential Specialist (CRS) designation.
Maria adds a personal touch to all of her interactions and strives to make clients comfortable upon their first meeting. Her abilities to truly listen and put her clients first are her greatest strengths. She is the perfect combination of attention to details, caring, and experience.
Maria spends the majority of her free time with her two daughters, Leilan and Meryl. Although she doesn’t sit still well, when she does, she finds her Zen place through yoga, gardening, a walk with the dogs (and when no one’s looking a quick sneak of chocolate).
