Meet Maria

Maria Powell

Selling real estate in Southern California for over 2 decades, Aviara Realtor Maria Powell can attribute her success to her honesty, hard work, caring and humor. Maria began her career with Coldwell Banker and after a few years she was approached by her future business partners to start a new, independent real estate company. . . and Aviara was born. The "invitation-only" company hires only top-quality agents and has a business philosophy that insists on the highest level of integrity and ethics.


Fully 90% of her business comes from referrals and past clients. Specializing in residential sales throughout Southern California, Maria is consistently a top-producer, selling large volumes of homes while treating every client like they're the only client, always devoting 100% to every client. Whether they are a first-time homebuyer or a seasoned investor, she carefully walks each client through the entire home buying process.


Maria is not a commission-driven agent – she's the first one to tell her client not to buy a house if she feels that it's not right for them. She's also a hard worker, never stopping working for her client until she's given them the very best deal and the very best buying/selling experience.


She also treats her clients like they're part of her extended family. She even does parties for them each year, and in turn she develops numerous contacts throughout the area.


Those who have Maria as their Realtor not only have a friend who is on their side every step of the way, they also have a hoot. Maria may be thoroughly professional, but she also makes the real estate process fun. Her clients have a blast with her. They also enjoy her straight-shooter style – it comes from her New York background.


Born and raised in New York, Maria has a background in the entertainment industry – with extensive experience in contracts. Before becoming a Realtor, Maria was a stay-at-home mom, raising her 2 daughters on her own. She also cared for her 2 elderly parents. So she understands well both the challenges of raising kids in the area and the challenges facing older adults and their housing needs.


Maria is also an avid dog lover who is devoted to animal rescue so she will try to get you to adopt a dog or cat from the shelter!


Maria Powell is a Realtor who combines her experience, caring heart, and sense of humor to bring satisfaction to each of her clients and make every real estate transaction a rousing success.
