Choosing the best real estate agent to represent you is a very important step in the selling or buying of your home. You want to hire a professional who is well versed in all aspects of real estate, knows his/her market well, and will strive to build a relationship with his/her client that is based on trust and sincerity as well as effective and timely communication.
My primary goal as a Realtor is to make my clients' real estate experience satisfying, enjoyable and stress-free. Additionally, as a member of the National Association of REALTORS®, I strictly abide by their Code of Ethics. I take great pride in building mutually successful relationships, and in fact, most of my business is built on the referrals of my pleased home buyers and sellers!
Selling Your Home
Whether you're selling your home in Wakefield MA, or any of the other surrounding communities in Middlesex County or Greater Boston, it is critically important that you have a good understanding of the current market value of your home. This is where I can help! I can provide you with a Comparative Market Analysis for your home to show you how your home compares with others that are currently on the market or have recently sold.
Determining the right listing price is extremely important - if the price is too high, you'll lose those buyers who are looking in the price range where your home should be. If you're subsequently forced to lower your price, you've already lost exposure to a large group of potential buyers. A knowledgeable realtor is always in touch with market trends and can help you set a listing price that will bring interested and motivated buyers to your home.
I can also give you suggestions to make your home more saleable - sometimes simple cosmetic changes can drastically change the appeal of your home and cost next to nothing. Other changes may possibly involve an investment, but it's likely that the cost will more than pay for itself in the resulting sales price or in the timely sale of your home.
Buying Your Home
Finding the right home can be an exciting and rewarding experience. The first thing that we'll discuss is what your needs and preferences are for your new home, for example: Where do you want to live? What kind of home - size, style, price, etc - do you want? What's important to you about the community in which you will live? What are your requirements for when you need to move?
I've helped many clients find homes in the Greater Boston area. I've also worked with many first-time home buyers so I can anticipate many of the questions and concerns that you may have about purchasing a home for the very first time!

Maria is efficient and on top of the sales process 100 percent. She is friendly, informative and a pleasure to work with.

We had worked with Maria before when purchasing our first home. We found her to be extremely knowledgeable and always very hard working to help find the perfect home for our family. At the time we were selling a condo and purchasing a new single family home. Though stressful doing both at the same time, Maria got it done for which we were very thankful. Four years later we decided to put the house on the market and buy another home. Of course we reached out to Maria and had the same experience. She always puts her clients first and I would and have recommended her to friends and family. We absolutely love Maria.

I had worked with Maria DiCarlo for previous real estate transactions. She is hard-working, diligent, professional, and knowledgeable. Maria returns calls, emails, and texts immediately. She goes above and beyond. She is patient and understands our needs. I would highly recommend Maria DiCarol to my friends and family.
Joie Edson, Wakefield
This is the third time I have worked with Maria DiCarlo; the first time was buying a house 11 years ago. She did such a Great Job working with and For me when I bought the house, that I contacted her a few years ago to sell that house. I was out of the state and Maria went Above And Beyond to make the house conform to all fire and code requirements (it just needed some extra things to be compliant but Maria made it happen). When I got back to Billerica and was looking to buy, Maria was the only agent I considered contacting. She is pleasant, knowledgeable and will be there for whatever home or condo you want to see. She asks all the right questions and gets the information you need whether you are a buyer or a seller. She has all electronic paperwork to you FAST! She simple does things well and right as well as being a pleasure to work with.
Maria has a lot of local knowledge but Follows Your Lead. What I mean is she will suggest but not push. She will answer questions and clearly leave the decisions up to you. She puts together all offers, contracts, ect and gets them to you the moment they are done. She is prompt, detailed and easy to work with. I highly recommend her as an agent and will work with her again should the need arise.
Carol Vaughan, Billerica
Maria was a level of amazing we can not describe in words!
Her advice was very on point, and beyond helpful. She knew we were very stressed and anxious about our particular situation and so she walked us through in steps to make everything easier. She kept what be needed to be confidential, confidential (nothing that inpacted the sale or the house, just personal info such as why we were moving and where we were going). She made us more comfortable with everything that was going on and kept us well informed, including to hope for the best but he prepared for the worst - luckily we ended up in the middle).
I honestly don't know if we could have sold as quickly as we did if it weren't for her advice, expertise and assistance. I definitely don't think we would have gotten as much as we did!
She was beyond amazing and helpful. She was honest, kind, informative and I just don't think we could have had a better broker. She always got back to us quickly and was honest if she didn't know the answer to a question, and then found the answer.
Additionally, when it came time to prepare the house for pictures she literally moved furniture so I would not over do it during my pregnancy. And when I had any kind of anxiety attack, she was great at calming me down. Seriously, what broker does that? I don't think many would go to such an extra mile like Maria did!
We can't thank her enough for all that she did. I truly understand why she was so recommended by my friend. Maria is just amazing.
Steinmetz Family, Billerica
We were looking at a few potential options, but knew that ultimately Maria was going to fight for us! Maria helped us with this transaction flawlessly, and kept us sane throughout the entire thing! She put our minds at ease through this whole process, and we were beyond lucky to have her guidance and help throughout! Not only did she make the process seamless, she found us the absolute perfect home for us, and so quickly as well! It was amazing to see that she was just as excited as we were about the house we settled on, which really helped assure us that we had made the right decision in choosing her! We could not have been happier, and I cannot wait to recommend her to everyone I know looking to buy or sell!

I went to an open house & Maria was the agent showing the house. I heard her talking & was so knowledgeable, personable, not pushy so I approached her & she was so gentle with her sales pitch and very opened to coming to look at my house as I was looking to sell my house & looking to buy at the same time. I really liked her lovely approach and vivacious willingness to help.
When Maria came over & saw my house she was so excited to sell it. She explained every detail of what would be involved from having a professional photographer come to take pictures of the house to all that is involved with the sale of the property. I fell in love with her & wanted her as my agent. She was so accommodating, so kind, so professional and so caring. She took on all the responsibilities of an agent but put a lot of love into selling my home. She told me not to worry about things and to leave the worrying to her as that is her job.
Maria went on & above on every aspect of the sale of my house & purchase of a condo. She was there for me every step of the way. She would meet me at anytime or call or text for any questions or concerns and have the answers right away or check & get right back to me.
I had to go to her office on a few occasions and I was greeted with a lovely staff of people who went out of their way to introduce themselves & speak so highly of Maria as did I to them about her. It was a beautiful friendly atmosphere.
I not only had my house sold & a condo bought through Maria @ Century 21 Commonwealth, I found a new friend! It was after all was completed that she presented me with a lovely painting of my old house and lunch out on the town. A true genuine caring loving professional agent who goes way above & beyond the sale & purchase of property. I can’t say enough about this lovely young lady!
Marge Cronin, Reading, MA
Maria is everything you want in a real estate broker; knowledgeable, efficient, organized, energetic, professional and polite. She was on-the-ball from start to finish, kept us informed every step of the way and made sure nothing was missed or overlooked. We've bought over a dozen properties and have used many brokers. Without question, Maria stands head and shoulders above the rest.We would not hesitate to use her again.
Robert & Alicia, Wakefield, MA
Maria was a fantastic realtor. She helped answer all of my first time buyer questions and was incredibly patient with me. She guided me through the buying process with expertise and helped me find a beautiful first home. She was attentive, got me all the answers I needed and made the buying experience great. I would highly recommend Maria to anyone who is currently searching for their next home!
Danielle, Lynn, MA
Maria had worked with me when I originally bought the house. I remembered how extremely helpful she was and knew I wanted the same work-like abilities on my side when selling the house. That is exactly what I got.
Since I was out of the state when the house went up for sale, Maria went above and beyond my expectations to make sure the house complied with local regulations. She kept me in the loop every step of the way.
Maria was 'on it' every step of the way. She attended every showing; made sure that buyers had someone present to answer their questions; was in constant contact with me if there was information she needed and Didn't know.
Carol Vaughan Winter Park, FL
I initially considered selling the home myself until I met with Maria Dicarlo. She explained everything thoroughly and made me feel confident in the decision to hire her. She took all the guesswork out of staging my house as well as running the open houses. My house sold for over asking within the first three days. I think the results speak for themselves. I would recommend Maria to anyone looking to buy or sell a home.
Paola Cerda, Wakefield
As a sales professional myself, I understand the significance of accurate forecasting. Furthermore, I value
the importance of transparency when dealing with customers.
Maria DiCarlo excelled in both areas. She was open and honest throughout the process of selling my home and delivered on every promise she made. Maria made what could have been a difficult situation both simple and easy.
Maria conveyed what was necessary by me to complete the sale of my home within my desired time frame. Her suggestions resulted in a smooth sale and locating a buyer who made an offer slightly above my asking price.
Maria DiCarlo was easily accessible and promptly responded to any/all questions I had.
Maria exuded the perfect blend of warmth and professionalism that other agents should strive to mimic.
Chris McLaughlin / 29 Center Ave, Reading, MA 01867
Maria is a "pit bull" in the industry! You have something to sell or buy she will get the job done! She makes a process that can be stressful simply stress free. Couldn't be happier with my choice of a realtor!
Jane McCormick Beverly
Maria DiCarlo understood that this was an very emotional time for my wife and I as we had been in our home
for 43 years. Maria DiCarlo worked with us to determine the best
price to ask for our home and through all of the issues with the getting the house ready to show as well as guiding us through the entire process.
We would absolutely recommend Maria DiCarlo to all of our friends and family to
assist them in the sale of their home.
There are not many agents out there like Maria that you can say nothing bad at all and be considered a part of our family. Anytime you need Maria or have any questions or concerns she is there for you as your agent and friend. Once again Maria we can never thank you enough for how much time and effort you put in for us and how lucky we are to have you as a part of our lives and family forever. Thank you so much!!!

The process was not easy for the condo I purchased due to things outside Exit Premier Real Estates control but Maria did everything she could in order to ensure the sale ended successfully. I would recommend her to family and friends for sure!!
Lori , West Medford, MA
Maria was incredibly knowledgeable, supremely friendly, and always available to answer any questions that we had as first-time home buyers. We could not imagine the process going any more smoothly!
Chris & Amy, Melrose
Maria was absolutely a wonderful agent to work with. She really understood the type of properties we were looking for and would send new listings our way almost immediately. She is extremely professional, responsive, and helpful. Her knowledge of the market in the North Shore area is incredible and was essential in the purchase of our home. It is with our greatest pleasure that we give Maria our highest recommendation.
Maria was the seller's agent when we purchased this property originally, and she was very helpful when she did not have to be. When it was time to sell I did not look elsewhere. Maria DiCarlo did an excellent job for us.
I would definitely use her again and would not hesitate to recommend her to friends and family. Thank you Maria!
Maria was always friendly but professional in our dealings with her.
Maria has been great to work with and very patient with us. Maria fought hard for us, even thought it is currently a seller's market. We finally got the kind of house that we should have.
The purchase of our new home was contingent on the sale of my condo. Maria, who also was the agent for
our purchase worked aggressively to sell my property within. 2 weeks and met all deadlines. She also kept in
contact while on vacation. She made a very stressful time easier for us all.
Fabulous agent to work with. I have already recommended her to a couple potential sellers.
we were very impressed with Maria's overall knowledge of the buying and selling process
My experience with purchasing a condo was wonderful. She is efficient, friendly and extremely knowledgeable. My daughter recommended her for my real estate transaction and I would, most definitely, recommend Maria!
Maria is an excellent Realtor, attentive, proactive, honest, aggressive in all the ways you need her to be. I highly recommend Maria both as a Buyers Agent and a Listing Agent.
Maria was a wonderful asset in the sale of my property and I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for an agent! Incredibly responsive, knowledgeable, and a delight to work with. Thank you Maria!
