"Fabulous team work! Tom and Maria Elena helped us find our dream winter home from out of state! Knowledgeable and professional."

"We met Maria Elena at an open house while visiting Arizona as we started a search for a winter home. She showed great patience and flexibility as we would plan vacations over a year and a half while honing our search for just the right location. When we arrived she was always well prepared with data and information about different neighborhoods that would meet our qualifications. When we found just the right one, Tom joined in and helped as we went through the purchase process from out of state. They were both fabulous and communicated over different forms of available sources. They both even went to a condo and video chatted a viewing for us. We had a wonderful experience with the Fulton Rizzo team and would highly recommend them."

"MariaElena was professional, efficient, proactive and went the extra mile. She worked through the Christmas and New Years holidays to make things happen . I can't say enough good things about her. I recommend her without hesitation ."

"Fulton Rizzo was extremely helpful in what turned out to be a complex and lengthy closing process which had to be done while I was no longer in Arizona."

"She was always available. And she checked out the new home developers in the area that we wanted to move to. We are now about 45 to 60 days from closing."

"MariaElena is easy to work with. She listens to what you want, and goes from there. She is very knowledgeable about real estate, and even gave us ideas as to how to sell our home in another area. I liked that when we asked questions, she would be honest and straight forward with us. If she didn't know, she said so. I would recommend her to anyone who asked...and anybody who didn't!!!!!"

"MariaElena worked with my husband and me to find a home in a particular area of the valley. She understood for what we were looking and ensured that the homes that she showed us were consistent with our goals. I would highly recommend her to others."

"MariaElena was incredibly helpful and diligent when it came to helping me find a local rental. She was willing to listen to my needs and cater to my wants and selected many great options for me to choose from. I would highly recommend MariaElena to anyone looking for an agent to serve them with their real estate needs. Mitch F"

"We are an out of town couple who were on vacation in AZ last fall. We met MariaElena while there and asked her to support us in our potential search for a new home in the South West. She has when requested gone to review homes that we choose on line and reviewed the homes and the neighborhoods and traffic patterns in a very professional and responsive manner. I would recommend her to any potential clients."  Bill Barclay

"I have had a very satisfying and pleasant working relationship with Maria Elena for several years. I have been in the building and real estate business for about 25 years. There is no doubt in my mind that Maria is by far one of the hardest working, thorough and professional people I have done business with. She seems to take her career as a challenge on how to exceed expectations. My experiences with her leave no doubt in my mind when I refer people to her. The feedback is always the same..."Terrific!" "MariaElena has gone out of her way to help us find a home in the Boulders. We are very specific about what we are looking for, and very particular! Maria continues to find properties for us to look at, even though we have not found the "perfect" property yet. She is diligent and doesn't give up. I'm sure we will find that "perfect" house in the near future! Maria is very personable, and very easy to work with. We would give her five stars."  -Ron & Joyce Allred

"MariaElena has exceeded our expectations from the first day that we started working with her. We were not listing our house for a couple weeks until after the holidays and she made sure that everything was ready for our listing. The video that she produced showcased our home and simply made it look like a million dollars. Not only did she sell our house in 1 week but it was also a full price offer. She has been extremely knowledgeable and professional throughout the process. We would definitely refer her to anyone needing to buy or sell their home."

"It's not as easy to find an agent with attention to detail as you would think, especially when your out of town but that's exactly what you get with MariaElana. Always available and knows the market inside and out."

"My wife and I were looking for a rental home in Carefree. MariaElena was extremely helpful through the whole process. She even checked in a couple of times after we were settled to ask how things were going and if we needed anything."

"MariaElena was fantastic. She took the time to understand our needs and wants and worked patiently to find the perfect property for us! She made herself available to see homes to fit our schedule and always seemed very concerned about our protection."

"MariaElena does an outstanding service of finding the perfect place to fit my needs. She is honest, diligent, timely and works hard to find out all of the details you need to make an informed decision."

"MariaElena was wonderful and always promptly returned calls and emails. We were from out of state, and she worked with our tight schedule! We will be using her expertise in the future!"

"I have been completely fed up with brokers who are amateurs and do not know anything about what they are showing and selling. MariaElana was both exceptionally professional and perfectly helpful. She understood what I was looking for perfectly, had studied the facts of all of what she showed me, and, then, sorted my choice with the seller with great skill so that both sides were happy with the transaction. She also followed up once I had moved in to insure all was in order and I was happy with the new place. A real professional and a pleasure to work with to best results."

"Our experience purchasing a condo with MariaElena was a very smooth one. It was the first time we purchased a Short Sale property and she was very helpful with all of the negotiations . I would highly recommend her for any future business." "MariaElena was recommended to me by a mutual acquaintance. While we never met personally as I was living out-of-state, she was very responsive to my needs and worked diligently to sell my home. I would highly recommend her."
