About Maria

Real Estate Salesperson Certified Buyer Representative Member of Long Island Board of Realtors Member of New York Association of Realtors Member of National Association of Realtors Maria McBride lives and works on the North Fork, a picturesque, rambling ribbon of villages and farms at the eastern end of Long Island that first captured her heart 20 years ago when she became a NYC weekender. Five years ago Maria made a major life transition from weekender to full time resident, giving her a unique perspective and understanding of the needs and concerns of buyers who are looking to purchase their first home or a second home to relax and enjoy all the incredible gifts the East End has to offer. Prior to real estate Maria was an editorial director at Condé Nast Publications and an event producer—both perfect primers for realtors. Real estate transactions are events which similarly need comprehensive production plans, a visual eye for staging, acute attention to the smallest details, a focus on the bottom line and dozens of interactions between all sorts of people to present and prepare properties for sale. As a producer of photographs and creative content, her job was to sell big editorial ideas to inspire millions of readers. As the author of six glossy books about event style, Maria knows how to make photos and scripts work together to engage and motivate buyers. Sellers will appreciate Maria’s staging and marketing instincts, honed from producing thousands of features for all sorts of publications and TV segments. Buyers will appreciate Maria’s insightful eye, developed from scouting hundreds of locations around the world. Maria sees the potential of a diamond in the rough, which some buyers might overlook. Maria knows it is important to assess a property’s real potential as both an investment and as a complement to your lifestyle. Over the years Maria has developed strong relationships with a wide community of trusted professionals, service providers and all sorts of creative and practical resources across the North Fork, Long Island and New York City, which she is proud to pair with the Daniel Gale Sotheby's International Realty community. Whether working for clients as their listing agent or buyers as their buyer representative, Maria is invested in their success and dedicated to helping everyone love where they live.
