She currently resides in Sag Harbor. Maria has experience in international law, and she worked as a paralegal for a Southampton real estate law office before entering the real estate business. She is a licensed real estate salesperson. "I am excited to be working for Saunders," she says, "a successful local company with an impressive record of success and continued great potential."

Outside the office Maria volunteers for EurAupair, a nonprofit organization that connects international au pairs with host families in the U.S., where they spend a year providing childcare while furthering their education here.
