I got into this business 15 years ago at the urging of my husband. Before flipping was popular, we engaged in that practice on a small scale. He had gotten into some very small development projects and thought it would be a good idea if I represented his company. I was a marketing major and had been in sales & design prior to this endeavor. I thought I was going to go into it on a part-time basis, but "it bit me." I fell in love with my job. I loved/love the idea of running my own business. Immediately I set out to market myself with all the technology coming on the scene at that time. I still use technology today and employ numerous resources & marketing strategies to sell a home or help a buyer find one. I also loved business law in school so contract negotiations work my brain in a way that I love. The cherry on top is the design piece. I love to help others envision a home with them living in it. I also love preparing a home for the market. It is just fun. My greatest love is working with my clients. They inspire me. I have met and made so many friends through this business. They bring me joy. It has been a career that is super fulfilling. I can truly say I love what I do. Won't you let me help you! Let's talk today. Give me a call.=615-289-6056
I work all areas of Metro Nashville and the surrounding communities; however, Brentwood, Franklin, Nolensville, South Nashville, Crieve Hall, Green Hils, Hillsboro Village, and Bellevue, West Meade are the heaviest areas where I work.

"Maria has worked with us both as a buyer and a seller. When we bought we were moving into the area. She spent entire days with us so we could make the most of our time in the area. She was quick to contact us back AND helped us make the right decision for our family. And it wasn't just the big things. It was letting me know who the local trash, electrical company, telecommunications. Things that I needed to know but wasn't sure where to go and was so overwhelmed with packing and moving that I couldn't find out. It was the little things that overwhelm you when putting together.
When we sold our house it was the same thing. She showed us all the comps in the area to help us make all the decisions needed to sell. She even had her team help us move some items to be prepped for putting in new floors and taking pictures. However, she went to bat for us multiple times with the buyer. We have bought and sold homes in other parts of Tennessee and I wish I could have worked with Maria for each of those transactions. She has been the best of all agents!!"
"Maria was amazing throughout the entire process! Being a first time home buyer, I was very anxious and didn't know what to expect. Maria instantly put me at ease and made the entire process seem easy. She is very knowledgeable and informative, simplified the process, and is honest with her opinions and advice. It felt like I was looking for a home with a family member. I would highly recommend her and will definitely be using her for my next home purchase"
"Maria went above and beyond any other sales agent, my husband and I have used in the past. Maria is an intelligent, hard-working agent who understands the market and buyers. She uses the latest websites and apps that allow us to stay in contact constantly. I recommend her because of her kind nature and her ability to get the job done."
"Maria was outstanding. Our house had been on the market for about 4 months with another agent before we went with her. We had struggled to sell the house with the prior agent but she got us a full price offer and the house closed after only 8 weeks with her!
Prior to hiring her, we interviewed a few other agents, even some with "big names" in Nashville. She won us over with her organization and understanding of the market and novel strategies for listing and staging homes. She has a pleasant personality that allows her to foster relationships with other agents and buyers that make for peaceful negotiations. She was efficient so that within a few days of signing a contract with her, the staging of the house, photos, painting, and other small projects were done to get the house on the MLS quickly in great condition.
She is very easy to work with and is honest about what she thinks it will take to sell the house. She handles all of the interactions with lenders, escrow, and other agents so it saves you a lot of headaches as a seller.
She has a proven track record of selling homes quickly for great prices. We couldn't be happier with our choice."
"We re-listed our home with Maria Holland after the original sale fell through. She immediately took command of the situation, laid out a comprehensive marketing plan, and went to work. Our house was older and in need of many updates, so when we did attract a new buyer, the inspection process and subsequent negotiations were not the easiest, but Maria managed to satisfy both parties. There was also significant difficulty with the buyers' disorganized appraisal company, which delayed the closing into the midst of the holidays. Maria worked very hard to keep on top of things, get answers/updates, and keep them moving. We had to leave prior to the closing, so Maria acted as our POA and handled everything perfectly, including checking the house for freezing water pipes, among many other much-appreciated gestures. She was supportive, knowledgeable, and got the job done during a very, very difficult emotional time. We could not recommend her more highly. We have bought and sold 6 houses and she is by far the most competent Realtor we have ever worked with. ReMax is very lucky to have her on their team."
