When speaking to Ruel Cabral, an upbeat, kind man with an excited voice, you won’t realize he’s across the world, working as Joe Maez’s virtual assistant from his home office in the Philippines. Because of his dedication and The Maez Group’s core commitment to communication, Ruel is as much a part of the office as anyone sitting at a desk in their Albuquerque offices. Ruel has been working The Maez Group for more than 5 years, acting as the communications expert and logistics man. He’s an expert at customer support and client interaction, with a strong tech background that connected him with Joe. Optimistic with a positive view of the world, Ruel is intent on finding a solution regardless of the problem and ensuring everyone involved is satisfied and happy with the outcome.
He shares The Maez Group’s commitment to innovation and resourcefulness, with a dedication to his work and position on the frontline of the brokerage. Selling or buying a house is a tough decision and it’s important to consider who you’ll entrust with that decision. At the Maez Group they walk the talk, valuing your property as much as you and always finding ways to exceed their clients’ expectations. Part of the advantage of working with a top producing realty team is having the widest range of contacts for buyers and sellers, often selling a home before it even hits the market.
Ruel acts as the funnel, aligning clients with brokers and creating a smooth path from a client’s initial call to meeting their agent and ultimately getting them to the closing table. He may be missing out on the face-to-face interaction, but he still feels integrated with the team. “I really love the culture,” Ruel says of The Maez Group, referring to them as “The Maez Family” for how Joe and Rosie treat each and every member, sharing equally in the success. “Their success is your success,” Ruel says. “It’s a dream team.” Because the team is built on collaboration and integration, being virtual doesn’t hinder Ruel’s work at all, perfect for this tech-savvy family man, working for you, from a world away.
Cory Saenz may be The Maez Group “sign guy” and fast-paced runner, but he’s as chill as they come. He loves his job driving all around the Albuquerque area from the East Mountains to Belen and Santa Fe, placing signs, delivering documents and keys to sellers, and meeting contractors on site. It’s a job tailored for his peaceful, even-keel personality. For the last three years, Cory has been supporting the brokers; taking care of most of the logistics happening outside the office that don’t directly involve selling and buying. He loves how well everyone in the brokerage gets along and contributes to the friendliness and support of his work environment.
Instead of answering phones or looking at a computer at their sales headquarters, Cory’s office is the red and white Maez Group Sprinter van where he enjoys the mountain air and listens to music and whatever is trending in podcasts. He enjoys the independent work and the peacefulness of his day-to-day life. When he’s not driving, Cory Saenz is sampling from the wide array of New Mexico’s culinary offerings, stopping into restaurants he spots along the road, and spending time at home, planning international travel adventures.
Leona Gonsalves, Buyer’s Specialist with The Maez Group, is all about maximizing her abilities and utilizing resources. Whether as a stay-at-home mom or for the last 17 years as a REALTOR®, Leona thrives in adaptive environments, negotiating situations for her clients as if they were family. She loves her brokerage; their support let’s her do what she does best: sell real estate and take care of her buyers.
Leona prides herself on her patience and careful handholding. Whether she’s working with first time home buyers, military service members with VA loans, or older clients, she brings a sense of peace and calm to the process, ensuring they’re comfortable throughout the entire journey to closing. Because of her careful tending, many of her clients become like family.
Leona’s faith and family are first and foremost in her life and she loves serving others. Regardless of whether it’s volunteering in a soup kitchen or taking extra time to answer questions and comfort a client, her goal is to assist in whatever way she can. She loves being part of the community outreach The Maez Group does throughout the year with their client appreciation events. Barbecues, holiday parties, Isotopes games in box seats, and hot air balloon rides for every closing—the brokerage and Leona love to have fun and connect with their clients away from realty, after everything is signed. “The Maez Group is part of the community,” which means Leona gets even more opportunities to be part too.
With the largest inventory of ‘coming soon’ properties in the area, Leona is confident she can find the perfect place for her buyers to call home. She has a whole team at her service; there’s always someone to answer the phone, find a solution, and provide the necessary resource to ensure things go smoothly and the dream of home ownership doesn’t turn into a nightmare. Leona wants her clients to know the only wrong question is the one you don’t ask, and with a team as experienced as The Maez Group backing you, there’s always someone to ask and provide the right answer.
Buyer’s Specialist Danielle Salazar is all about making buyers happy; she loves getting to know her clients and helping make their dreams of home ownership come true. Prior to becoming a broker, Danielle was a loan officer and understands the ins and outs of the lending process. Her passion for home design combined with her financial knowledge got her into realty where she’s thrived in the close environment of The Maez Group.
She loves having a resource-rich brokerage that allows her to focus entirely on her clients. Her philosophy for creating strong relationships with her buyers is supported by the strong relationships she has with her team, a small, cohesive brokerage where she receives on-the-job training and no one “gets put on the back burner”—client or agent.
Once you’re working with Danielle, you have her and the whole the whole Maez Group on call. Thanks to the bevy of people, including lenders, a title company, and top-producing brokers and coordinators, Danielle can promise your transaction will run smoothly. Their close-knit net of resources means nothing, and no one falls through the cracks, often selling homes before they hit the market and finding the right property before it’s active for anyone else. In her first year and a half she’s already had more than 30 closings, working with clients from out of state as well as first time home buyers.
Thanks to the brokerage’s small size and boutique feel, everyone operates like a family unit, staying in constant communication so no matter where they are in a deal, the team knows and is there to support the process. In Danielle’s mind, a close relationship between broker and buyer equates to a faster, easier journey to the closing table. She believes the personal and professional support she receives from her brokerage is the perfect framework from which to offer her clients the type of personal and transactional support they need to enjoy the process of buying a home. Ultimately, Danielle wants her buyers to find joy in their interaction from initial search to walking through the door of their dream home.
Terri Stagman is The Maez Group MVP; get within range of their Albuquerque office and you’ll hear someone singing her praises. As the Transaction and Operations Manager, Terri has her hands on everything being processed. She’s been working in and around real estate for almost three decades, a career she obviously loves and still finds challenging.
Terri’s level of expertise is unmatched. She’s well-versed in everything from the paperwork and personal logistics, to the behind the scenes work of title insurance and loan processing. Her understanding of all the issues that can arise throughout the process helps her avoid them, ensuring problem-free transactions that run smoothly to closing.
The mother of two and grandmother says her compassion helps her succeed and find fulfillment every day, with each individual client. She understands the ups and downs of life and how buying or selling a home can add to the complication. It’s never a stale process and Terri’s empathy gives her insight into the human side of her work. She loves being the primary support for the brokers, seeing her role as the spotlight, making sure they can shine.
With the Maez Group, there’s a specialist for almost everything and they represent buyers regardless of budget or location. Like the rest of the team, Terri doesn’t work 9-5; she’s available anytime she’s needed, bringing her expertise to the table to move the transaction to closing. Terri is grateful for the diversity of the team—the unending number of assets they bring to each client’s experience. Whether the need is personal or professional, there’s someone who can “hook you up” to leverage a solution. “The resources are endless,” perfect for a brokerage that sells all over New Mexico and may encounter unique issues in markets from the East Mountains to Belen and the farthest corners of the state. Terri feels a similarly far-reaching sense of passion and excitement for the work she does and wants clients—from potential to prior—to know she’s exhilarated by her job and loves being part of the #1 realty team.
Rosie Maez is the conductor of The Maez Group symphony. While her husband Joe likes to say she got him “into this mess,” she’s actually a big reason it’s not a mess, but a well-organized, beautifully run orchestra. As the Director of Operations and Marketing, Rosie oversees the broker recruitment as well as marketing and business logistics.
The daughter of an artist, Rosie has never been an inside-the-lines thinker, doing things her own way with great results. Rosie has held nearly every role within the brokerage from photographer to sales and understands what goes into each step of getting a home bought or sold. She knows what it takes and has applied her brand of excellence and positivity to every task: “We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence then, is not an act, but a habit.”
Whether setting an example for their two kids or taking on a brand-new broker, Rosie teaches every situation is an opportunity to learn and grow. She admits she and Joe have had failures, but each time they’ve managed to fail forward and come out stronger. They’re designing the life they want and building it together.
Rosie’s passion is helping others grow to exceed their potential and design their own lives, instead of being stuck in status quo inside other people’s expectations. She looks for opportunities with her team to guide them, so they know, whatever they want, there’s a way to get it. Rosie thrives guiding people through new situations, pushing them to face challenges, and helping them understand their power is found harnessing the positive in every situation and taking the leap regardless of discomfort.
Rosie is a designer by nature. She and Joe curated the life they want for their family and a business where the network of support and resources are more akin to family ties than colleagues. They’ve also created a platform to help their staff and brokers succeed for themselves—identifying strengths and passions and designing a role within The Maez Group to fulfill the person, instead of having a person fulfill the role. Because of their custom-fit recruiting model, everyone at the brokerage is happy with their job, their operations are more efficient, and the culture is one of encouragement and kindness. Rosie loves participating in the success of their team, paying homage to each member’s individual strengths and the unified culture and values they share. Real estate is a hard business, it’s non-stop and requires a lot from the people, but if you’re doing what you love, Rosie Maez believes you can attack challenges with the same excitement and innovation you have for celebrating the triumphs.
Transaction Coordinator Petra Saenz is all about logistics and the behind-the-scenes work necessary for a seamless transaction. Described by the team as the “go-to” person, she takes care of everything from business cards to printing, and can answer questions with the experience of a veteran real estate broker. As a licensed REALTOR®, she understands everything that goes into a home sale and prides herself on the all-encompassing support she offers The Maez Group brokers and clients. Whether they need marketing supplies or property research done, Petra is there, serving the brokers so they can serve the clients, and providing the oil for the well-oiled machine that is the number one brokerage in the state.
Being with the Maez Group is perfect for Petra, who thrives in an atmosphere of growth and adaptation. Joe Maez “has so many ideas” for what he wants to do and how he wants to grow; Petra is excited to be part of the innovation. In addition to her role at The Maez Group, Petra is the office and transaction manager for AI (All-In), a second brokerage for more seasoned agents pursuing their own teams while maintaining connection with Joe Maez as a mentor and resource. From small problem-solving opportunities in her day-to-day work to big changes, like her expanded role in their new brokerage, no two days are the same and Petra loves every one of them.
The office shares more than just incredible success, there’s a sense of friendship and camaraderie, so taking care of her brokers is like taking care of family. Like many in The Maez Group, Petra values family, spending as much time as she can with her husband and sons, one of whom works for The Maez Group, the other, a marine at Camp Pendleton. She enjoys spending her weekends with her husband, a stained-glass artist, antiquing, traveling to art fairs, and exploring small towns.
Paul Daniels knows all about taking care of customers while dealing with important, potentially stressful transactions. The Buyer’s Specialist worked for 15 years as Funeral Director, Sales Manager, Cemetery Manager, and Vice President of Operations for Daniels Family Funeral Services. He’s an entrepreneur and salesman at heart; currently president of 4BF, natural rubber pet toy manufacturer. Paul takes pride in his work and The Maez Group reputation for expertise in the marketplace. A longtime friend since they both went to UNM, Paul became a REALTOR® because of his respect for Joe Maez and his admiration for his realty business model. Paul knows what it takes to run a successful business and the team network of transaction coordinators, behind-the-scenes experts, and lenders at Frost Mortgage means Paul can focus on what he does best—finding homes for his clients.
Paul’s passion is “the discovery process with the buyer.” He loves finding the perfect fit that meets all their needs and dreams. Because of the support and resources he receives from The Maez Group, he’s able to focus solely on his clients. “No matter how many transactions are happening, each customer feels like they’re the only one,” because of the systems and processes in place to keep things running smoothly and maintain focus on the buyers.

Their system supports the buyers with all the details in real estate that have to get done within the closing period.

Paul recognizes it’s a high stakes situation and does everything to make sure the client feels supported and has a clear understanding, every step of the way.
The happily married father of three is a UNM alum and avid golfer, dedicated to keeping up with his “Triple A Batteries”—three active daughters he loves spending time with.
When she first interviewed with Joe Maez, Marie Ann Alvarado committed to work for him as long as The Maez Group needed her. Seven years later, the virtual administrative assistant is an integral part of the team, providing support to the clients, brokers, and in-house staff. Marie Ann is a technical support expert, with a passion for troubleshooting and improving systems to increase efficiency. She loves numbers, organization, and research and the freedom to be who she is within The Maez Group.
Marie Ann is the mother of three with a background in veterinary medicine. She loves caring for animals and cooking beautiful meals for her kids in their family home. Family means considering each other’s needs, trusting the mutual love and support you give and receive—a culture she experiences with her work family as well. Regardless of the fact she’s halfway around the world, nestled in the mountains of the Philippines, she’s as much a part of The Maez Group family, imbued with all the same trust and confidence as anyone in the main office with a view of the Sandias.
Just like the office staff, she’s fully equipped with the knowledge, tools, and resources to do her job. It’s the reason the business works so well—everyone from admin to top-selling broker is given everything they need to thrive individually and achieve the objectives of their role, resulting in an environment of total support for the client and each other. They’re “always there for each other,” which means the entire Maez Group is always available to serve the client, answer questions, and streamline the journey to closing.
The culture of commitment is a big draw for Marie Ann, a woman who believes that once you’ve committed, everything else will follow for it to be successful. She gives 100% of her attention to the job when she’s working and knows that in doing so, she’ll achieve all she’s set out for personally, professionally, and for their buyers and sellers.
Listing Manager Lisa Spina is the wizard behind the curtain at The Maez Group. Most people never meet her in person, but her role is essential. Working from Florida, Lisa takes care of all the marketing—everything from business cards and signs, to the extensive advertisements and marketing campaigns happening for every property. She also manages the exhaustive marketing campaigns they do for their luxury listings; collaborating with Simply Design to reach larger markets and target potential buyers worldwide.
Lisa spent 17 years in hotel management, moving through the ranks from host to resort manager, learning to juggle and meet the demands of running an entire resort property. Her attention to detail and talent for connecting with people made her a professional success, but her ability to maintain life balance enabled her to thrive. After a stint as a stay-at-home mom, Lisa returned to career life with new priorities that made working with The Maez Group a perfect fit. Her experiences and skill shine even from across the country. Lisa is proud to be part of a group with the most knowledgeable leader and staff; no one else offers the same level of expertise and service and she’s proud to be an asset to the top-producing brokerage.
“It’s about being part of something bigger than just selling a house. It’s about being part of something great…striving to be #1.” Lisa appreciates the larger purpose and the freedom to spread her wings and innovate, always with the resources of the team and Joe supporting her. Her knowledge of realty as a licensed REALTOR® and with years of experience as a listing manager gives her the confidence to try new ideas, explore new solutions and better ways of serving their clients. Lisa will work whenever she has to to meet the needs of the team while also taking care of her family—2 daughters and her husband, an active Air Force serviceman. Ultimately, it’s all about getting the job done with excellence, integrity, and efficiency that serves everyone from the client and brokers to Lisa’s own family.
Steve Lowe, Originating Branch Manager for Frost Mortgage, has been in the lending and finance business for most of his adult life and he loves it. His passion is clearly evidenced by the success of his branch—a top producer in the Albuquerque Area with phenomenal closing ratios. He, along with his colleague Ammar, built the branch from the ground up. In collaborating with The Maez Group, they’ve created a reputation for excellent customer service and friendly professionalism. Steve believes in a model that is “more service than sales,” providing consumers with everything they need to apply for a mortgage without pressure. Unlike traditional banks, Frost Mortgage tries to reduce stress for their people. Steve and his team provide advice on credit repair, waiting to pull credit reports and require documentation, educating their clients along the way, and communicating with total transparency.
Working with The Maez Group makes the process smoother for everyone—the realty team, lenders, and consumers. Thanks to their collaborative relationship, there are never any surprises, and everyone is always clear on where a transaction stands. Steve loves being part of such an incorporated, cooperative team where creative problem solving and solution-based thinking are highly valued, and the client is everyone’s first priority.
Steve’s job is made even more fulfilling knowing he has a group of people and network of resources at his disposal for each transaction; finding the best way to get people into homes. As a former wrestling coach and father of two sons, Steve is an experienced teacher, making sure each client understands the ins and outs of every type of mortgage and program so they can make the best choice. At Frost, they’ll explore every option and provide their recommendation for the program best fit to each client’s situation, but they’ll never push someone in a direction they’re uncomfortable with. Once a decision is reached, the process moves relatively quickly, with pre-approval letters written the same day as the application is received. A major benefit to being a local company is Frost’s ability to utilize local resources—underwriters, processing staff, and The Maez Group transaction team. Steve and his team always have access to the necessary people, a unique advantage over big banks. Day or night, their consumers know their loan is being handled by experts who are invested in the same community where their house is being purchased; the same community where the Frost Mortgage team and Steve Lowe are raising their own families.
Michael Freeman lives by the words of his father, “You didn’t do your job right if someone else could have done it better.” He gives 100% to everything he does so at the end of the day, he’s confident his consumers couldn’t have received better service anywhere else. Michael is the newest member of the Frost Mortgage team, but this Assistant Loan Officer is already entrenched in the Frost culture—providing service that exceeds industry standards to each and every consumer, guiding them through the lending process with as much communication and as little stress as possible.
Michael’s experience in appraisals along with his finance degree and longtime interest in residential and commercial real estate were the perfect combination of passion and knowledge for him to enter the mortgage lending space. He’s thriving under the mentorship of Steve, his middle through high school wrestling coach, and Ammar, and is a perfect fit on the Frost Mortgage and Maez Group teams. Like many of his colleagues, his time away from work is family centered; each day he looks forward to spending time with his son and serving his community as a high school wrestling coach.
A New Mexico native and Los Lunas “farm kid,” Michael loves being part of something local; helping his community and providing service that goes beyond that of the national and big bank brands. Michael understands the major impact his work has on other families. A family man himself, he’s honored to participate in the process, helping people and solving problems. This understanding makes what he does worthwhile even when it involves working evenings and weekends, whenever the consumer needs him. At Frost Mortgage it’s all about serving the client with transparency and integrity, values Michael Freeman can proudly stand behind.
The Maez legacy started with Emery Maez, though he’s quick to credit his son’s ceaseless innovation and hard work for The Maez Group’s success. Prior to becoming a REALTOR® at his son’s urging, the Marine Corps veteran, was the retired CEO of an electric co-op in northern New Mexico and served a one-year term as the executive director of a rural healthcare clinic, helping manage logistics and improve their systems. Emery’s strengths are working out systems to develop and grow a business. Whether it’s with his family’s inn or as the qualifying broker of The Maez Group’s Española office, Emery is a great manger and loves applying his expertise to help people.
He’s a technical expert with particular knowledge of northern New Mexico; a special market with incredible beauty and unique property amenities not commonly seen in more urban areas. Emery and his Española team understand rural services from water rights and irrigation considerations to septic and wells. Emery loves analysis—spreadsheets, data, and numbers—filtering his buyers’ criteria to find the right property in the right place. By educating his clients before they start showing he saves them time and mileage, eliminating needless travel by determining what will work without every stepping foot out of his office.
In real estate, Emery’s passion is taking someone with an initial desire to buy or sell a property and guiding them to the closing table. It’s a long and complex process a lot of people take for granted until they’re in the thick of it. Emery is always honest and upfront about the intricacies—honesty that garners trust and develops close relationships with his clients.
After so many years in business, Emery thinks like an executive, taking responsibility for his clients and brokers and dealing truthfully with everyone out of respect. He’s spent much of his life in positions of leadership but believes there’s always something to learn from his team, his son Joe, and their clients.
Loan originator Ammar Nesheiwat has business in his blood and always knew he’d choose a career serving people. Ammar is from a family of entrepreneurs and while he admired the spirit of what they do in the restaurant and retail industry, he chose a different path after graduating with a biochemistry degree from SUNY Purchase in New York where Ammar was raised. After taking a U-turn, he rejoined his family in New Mexico where the sunshine, lifestyle, and business opportunities were the right fit.
Ammar credits his colleague, Steve Lowe with everything he knows about lending. The family-oriented model of collaboration between Frost Mortgage and The Maez Group means they’re sharing knowledge every day, collaborating and communicating to meet the needs of their clients and supporting each other. Ammar believes in over delivering, working closely with The Maez Group transaction team to provide the best service. They “treat everyone like a first-time home buyer,” with daily updates and disclosing everything happening along the way. Ammar is all about communication, taking pride in the knowledge and comfort he can give his clients; never leaving them to wonder what’s happening with their loan. His goal is always clarity and consistency, doing everything he can to eliminate anxiety during the high stakes, emotionally charged time for his consumers. Each transaction starts with a strategic planning session, so the consumer understands the expectations placed on them and Ammar’s role as loan originator. As they move through the process of securing the loan, everyone from the client and loan officer, to the brokers on both sides, know what’s happening and can easily track the progress.
Fluent in Spanish and Arabic as well as English, Ammar, prides himself on the dedication he brings to each transaction, happily answering his phone outside “normal” business hours to answer questions and put his client’s mind at ease. Ammar’s heart is for his family, spending time with his two young sons, watching sports, and participating as a member of Saint George’s Greek Orthodox Church.

With more than two decades in the food industry, he’s a pro when it comes to planning and organizing, managing complications, problem solving, and overseeing multi-unit businesses. Along with a refined palate, Daniel brought his experience to new life when he joined The Maez Group. The Albuquerque native grew up in the North Valley, lives with his family on the West Side, and works extensively in the North East Heights, Santa Fe, Bernalillo, Rio Rancho, and Los Lunas; he understands the unique aspects of the various markets in and around Albuquerque.

Anthony Martinez lives to serve. Prior to becoming a REALTOR®, the Buyer’s Specialist spent 17 years in public service assisting his community as a law enforcement and search and rescue officer.

An Albuquerque and East Mountain native, he’s spent his life and a 17-year career discovering the metro and mountains.

Associate Broker Amin Gauba is a house flipping expert. In the four years he’s been flipping, Amin has bought, renovated, and sold 83 homes. He didn’t start in realty, but he’s been bred with business acumen. His parents own small businesses in the area including gas stations and food retailers. Amin worked in retail customer service and branched out with a car dealership, but he grew up watching renovation shows on TV and kept it in the back of his mind as his dream job.
When his wife became pregnant with their first child, Amin knew he had to make a change—working two full time jobs wouldn’t allow for the type of involved parenting he’d always dreamt of. He took the plunge into flipping full time and became a REALTOR® to handle more of the logistics of buying and selling himself.
Amin joined The Maez Group in order to plug into the network of support they’re famous for. Thanks to the administrative and transaction expertise he receives, he’s able to focus on finding the right properties to flip, designing the renovations, overseeing the work, and serving his buyers. Amin runs his own network of more than two dozen people and loves the team-oriented structure The Maez Group shares. He recognizes how invaluable their combined knowledge is—when you have a team that’s always in communication, with an encyclopedia of information and experience to draw from, the chance of failure is non-existent. By insulating himself from issues down the line, he can protect his buyers and get them into their new home faster.
Amin wants his clients to have a stress-free experience from closing to moving in and he does everything he can to honor them, creating a reputation for lasting excellence. From a final cleaning right before closing, to going the extra mile so his homes are practically new when finished, he takes great pride in every property. After so many years of success, it’s not about the money for Amin Gauba, it’s about the love of helping people and having them appreciate the work he’s done, designed and executed as if it were for his own family.
You could say Dolores Maez is largely responsible for the spark that started The Maez Group. Associate Broker and mother of Joe Maez, she’s a veteran educator with a passion for teaching and giving back that still burns hot. Raising her sons with her husband Emery Maez in the mountains of northern New Mexico, her goal was always to create an environment of learning for her family, students, and community. She instilled this passion in Joe; clearly evidenced by the brokerage’s business model of support, education, and care.
Dolores believes in taking care of others, a philosophy made clear by the close ties brokers and staff at The Maez Group share—taking care of each other personally and professionally with a strong network of support and collaboration. Dolores brought her spirit of learning and generosity into her career, educating her clients and treating them like family. Her desire to connect and serve means her relationships don’t “end at the closing table.” She loves all The Maez Group-sponsored opportunities to stay in-touch with past clients and give back to the community, core values for the Maez family that her son’s realty company exemplifies.
As a broker, Dolores is able to reach an even larger community. Working out of the Española office, she specializes in the areas north of Santa Fe. But she loves visiting the Albuquerque office, viewing every opportunity to come south as a great excuse to spend extra time with her family. She’ll go anywhere to meet the needs of her clients and find the right property, regardless of location.
Dolores sees her role as that of a guide—listening, finding the home to meet the client’s needs, and helping them maintain perspective and go with the flow to the end of the transaction. With The Maez Group’s unprecedented level of expertise and support, she’s confident she can find success for everyone.
She gives what she has to give: realty expertise, a passion for personal growth, and sincere love for the people she gets to work with. Dolores has always been a believer in working with those around her, so every situation is a learning opportunity and time spent with others can be a teaching moment. Her passion for educating is as strong as it ever was; now, instead of students at desks, Dolores Maez is guiding clients to the closing table and into the home of their dreams.
