Bought and sold a Single Family home in 2017 for approximately $300K in Dagsboro, DE.
This was our second time as Mariya's client, but first time selling. Through her and her staff members expertise we sold in just over 3 months during off season. We honestly had contingency plans for being on market for close to a year and couldn't be happier with the results! We could tell there was consistent effort to market the property based on the traffic that continued to look at the property. The photography package really showcased the value of the home and went a long way towards drawing in prospective buyers. We dont plan on employing a realtor now for years but Mariya will be the first person we call the next time it comes to move.
