Maria Daou is a highly regarded and accomplished New York City real estate broker with extensive experience working with both buyers and sellers. She possesses incomparable, behind-the-veil knowledge of the inner workings of co-ops, condos, townhouses and new developments from the tip of Lower Manhattan through the Upper East and Upper West Sides. Repeat clients (and often, their offspring) choose to work with Maria to buy, sell and sublet apartments as their families grow and change. A broker since 1998, Maria's trademark no-nonsense style and market knowledge combine seamlessly with her sophisticated and cultured sensibility.
Her background as both a sellers’ and buyers’ agent gives Maria a unique perspective into the buyers’ psychology, greatly enhancing her ability to guide her sellers toward appealing to the perfect buyer, as well as her determination to not let her buyers settle for anything less than their perfect home.
Maria grew up in Lebanon, but has called NYC home for over 25 years while raising her 3 daughters here. A Barnard graduate, Maria has sold an array of properties to an eclectic range of discerning customers. She has also worked in corporate relocation and as an on-site broker for a multi-million-dollar Upper East Side development. Maria is fluent in Arabic and conversational in French and Italian, permitting her to broker deals for a diverse clientele.
