Maria Elena D’Amico – Broker / Property Manager
Maria Elena D’Amico treats her clients with respect, dignity, and placing their needs above her own. She believes that this philosophy, combined with integrity and ethics, are the keys to success in real estate and property management. Over her 20+ year career, 90% of her business comes from referrals – both past and present customers. She has seen the Tampa Bay area develop and grow over the last 40 years relocating from New Jersey in 1981.
Maria Elena’s expertise includes the Tri-County Area (Hillsborough, Northern Pinellas, Eastern Pasco and even Western Pasco) from Clearwater / Dunedin / Palm Harbor / Tarpon Springs to Zephyrhills / Plant City / Kathleen, from Odessa & Land O’Lakes to Sun City / Ruskin / Wimauma. As a tough and detail oriented residential property manager, it is her goal to relieve the stress of asset management. You will never see her face on a billboard. She will be behind the scenes being firm, fair and focused.
While working in real estate and property management, Maria Elena has developed a large reliable network. Her customers and friends often for referrals for home services (HVAC, electric, handymen, painters and pest control), travel agents, lawyers, insurance agents, and mortgages, to name a few. If she doesn’t have someone in her network, she will help you find them.
Maria Elena’s background includes IT consulting, business analyst, vendor manager, contracts negotiator and unpaid psychologist (she earned a B.S. in psychology. University of South Florida, 1986). She is very active in my professional and local community with leadership positions with Women’s Council of REALTORS®, Stellar MLS, Hillsborough County Florida – Land Use Appeals Board, Lutz Citizens Coalition, Tampa Area Realtors D6 Leadership Program and BNI Prosperity in Action.
