About Maria McLain
I am a mom of two beautiful daughters and have a wonderful family. Both my daughters are grown and out of the home now. My youngest is playing college Volleyball. I love to hike, camp, fish and go on long scenic drives through Colorado. I moved to Colorado in 2006 and have never been happier!
Since 1997, when I became a licensed Realtor, real estate has been my career and exclusive professional focus. I am a full time professional, with 18 years of Real Estate experience. I can truly say that I love my job because for me, helping people find their dream home, relocating to a new area is a passion.
My career began in New York where I learned what it takes to be successful in any market. I relocated to Florida and continued my career as well as learned a totally different market. I have been in Colorado for almost 10 years now and absolutely love it. The lifestyle here is like non other. Whether you like fine dining, hiking, biking, sports, it’s all here.
If you are thinking of selling your home, please know, that from listing to closing, I will be your partner during the entire process to ensure that you are protected and educated throughout the transaction. I feel that communication is key in the Real Estate process. The better informed you are the better your chance are to obtain exactly what you are looking for. That is what I provide to all of my clients. It’s what brings me repeat business from happy customers.

After speaking to two other local Realtors about selling my home, I decided to do a little research of my own and found that Maria was very active in my area and rave reviews on Zillow. So I called her. From the first moment I talked with Maria on the phone I had complete confidence in her. She is very professional, very responsive, energetic and knew my area of Fort Collins inside and out. She told me what I needed to do to get my house ready to list. She did a fair market analysis to suggest a listing price (I was pleasantly surprised as I was expecting less). She reassured me throughout the process. She even has a handyman that she recommends and helped set up appointments to fix the items that came through from the inspection report. After a day and a half on the market, I was under contract for more than my asking price. Maria was wonderful to work with and I would highly recommend her to anyone buying or selling a house in Fort Collins. Angie
Maria was excellent to work with as a Realtor. Her knowledge of the local area as well as the process of Real Estate was quite in depth. She was available for us and never hesitated to answer our questions honestly and in a timely fashion.
I would highly recommend Maria to anyone looking for a real estate professional and expert in the area! Karl and Beth
We recently used Maria to purchase a home in either the Loveland or Fort Collins area. We had a very positive experience! Maria was responsive to all our needs and concerns. Her knowledge of the local market was extremely helpful. George and Lorrae
We would highly recommend working with Maria for all of your needs whether buying or selling property. She was always looking out for our best interests, and promptly addressed any concerns we had. She made herself available to us at our convenience. It was very enjoyable working with Maria. If the need arises, we would choose her again!! John and Kay
I would highly recommend working with Maria, and I would definitely work with her again! Her understanding of South Fort Collins and Loveland was impressive, and she demonstrated sincere care for my needs in the transaction. She was highly responsive, and offered sound advice throughout the sales process. Kristin Lauria
We highly recommend Maria McLain, without any reservation, to anyone buying or selling residential property in the northern Colorado area. Maria consistently demonstrated her considerable skills, knowledge, and experience in every aspect of the process. Her intimate knowledge of the local market, and resources that RE/ MAX provided her, allowed us to find and purchase the exact right house, at a very competitive price. If you are even thinking about making a change regarding home ownership, you should give Maria a call. Julie and Jerry
I used Maria to sell my old town Loveland house. The house was built in 1900 and was fairly small. This was my first sale and she gave me ideas about how to stage my house and the things I needed to de-clutter. The comparative market analysis was extremely professional and really helped accurately price my house and I was able to have 3 bids in 3 three days!
Maria was great even though my house wasn’t going to bring in a huge commission she was constantly in contact with updates and current information. I would recommend Maria in a second. Emily Driver
Maria went ABOVE and BEYOND to get my house sold. I had the house listed with another agent, and was very disappointed. Maria was so great and got my house sold for a great price. My situation was unique and she really worked around some difficult parameters. She is honest, returns calls promptly, and is extremely knowledgeable. I would use her again and have recommended her several times. KrisMichelle
When my wife and I were looking for a home recently, we started–like many do these days–on Zillow. We weren’t really interested in working with an agent at first as we were just browsing. In the process, however, we found a home on Zillow’s site that we wanted to view. When we requested a showing, we thought we would be hearing from the listing agent. Instead, we very promptly received a call from Maria as a buyers agent. She quickly changed our minds about having an agent to work with sooner than later. Maria was absolutely fabulous to work with. The first thing we noticed was that she seemed to take a very genuine interest in us as people vs. seeing us as a project to conquer. Beyond that she was fantastic in every way: in terms of her knowledge of the area, the industry, her connections with other agents, with inspectors, loan officers etc. This was a tremendous help as we had only been living in the area for a few months. In addition, she went above and beyond her duty in negotiating the finalizing of our loan through the lender we chose when we were having some difficulty with them. That certainly was above the call of her duties! This is the 4th home we’ve purchased and we have never had a better buyer’s agent who represented us and our interests so well! My wife and I would recommend her to anyone in a heartbeat! Dan and Ilona Anderson
We recently chose Maria to represent us in a home purchase. Although she was not the listing agent for the property, she quickly learned more about it than the listing agent! She got us in touch with the HOA president, with Larimer County building agents and with water district people and others. The process was smooth, she represented us well, and we feel quite confident that we got a great deal. She is easy to communicate with, honest, and responds quickly to contacts. I only wish she could represent the sale of our existing home, but we’re too far away. Anyway, choose her with confidence–you will be pleased. Jim and Maureen
Maria is THE expert on the Ridgewood Hills tract!
A delight to work with who responded professionally to my request that “she bug me–nicely, and keep after me.” She honest and upfront about pricing and condition of home. Didn’t “sugarcoat” anything. ( I’m an older single guy living alone, I have a tendancy to drag my feet) She was great; never made me feel uncomfortable but kept the process boiling along. Our sale was at a great price/conditions.
Very pleased! Bruce Gammill
