Maria Auterman - REALTOR®
Selling or buying a home is a big investment and life decision and can be overwhelming, so I take pride in making sure my clients are comfortable at every step of the process. I've developed an excellent network of professional lenders, inspectors, title companies, photographers and contractors who can be trusted and relied upon to make your transaction go smoothly.
I've been professionally involved in real estate since 2006. From flipping in Ferndale and West Bloomfield, to building new spec homes in downtown Royal Oak, to helping buyers and sellers across metro Detroit, I've done a lot. This experience puts my client's minds at ease, as there isn't much I haven't seen or done.
With a keen eye for style and trend, I use my experience to help sellers present their homes in the best light to maximize their price and sell quickly. And buyers benefit from my expertise regarding home values, desired features, in-demand areas and quality school districts.
Customer service is my #1 priority. It always has been, and I think it's the basis for my success in multiple areas. Before I got involved with real estate, I founded and operated a successful technical staffing agency in metro Detroit. If you can make tool and die workers and auto suppliers happy, you can make anyone happy!
On a more personal level, I was born in the former Yugoslavia but grew up in Detroit and Hamtramck. I attended Wayne State University and Oakland University. I now live in West Bloomfield and am married with three children (two in college and one in high school), one dog, one cat, one bearded dragon lizard and several fish.
For fun I love to bake and cook, and I used to make my own clothes when I had more time. I volunteer with Open Door, a food pantry charity in Waterford one morning each week. I'm a supporter of Angel's Place, an organization that provides residential living for developmentally disabled adults, and Best Buddies, a pet rescue organization. I'm a member of St. Patrick's in White Lake. I am a supporter and booster for Walled Lake School's swimming, water polo and hockey teams.
Professionally, I'm a member of the National Association of Realtors, the Michigan Association of Realtors and the North Oakland County Board of Realtors. I also hold a Seniors Real Estate Specialist (SRES®) Designation.
I'd love to help you with your real estate goals.
