My partner and I had the best experience working with Aya Maiden. As first-time home buyers we had a lot of questions and didn't know much about the process. Aya was enormously responsive and helpful and very self-assuring. Buying a home is obviously a huge commitment and expense and can be a very stressful process, but working with Aya made it fun. We felt taken care of every step of the way. If you're in the market for a new home, we'd highly recommend working with Aya and her team.

Aya Maiden was our Realtor. She was phenomenal through the entire process. There was a snag at the end on the buyer side, Aya handled it like a champion. She negotiated on our behalf, worked with us on what we needed to get for our home, and ultimately sold for over asking price. I met Aya by chance at a Chamber event. She will now be a staple in my life as a friend and the only realtor I will use unless one of us move. If you are looking for a Realtor who will help in any way she can, meet you on your level, and who will go to bat for her clients on every level… Aya is it!

Trust and believe if Aya is your team you are positioned to win. Recently, I experienced two different nightmares with hiring the wrong realtors and losing money.

I have already referred Aya to other friends and I am looking forward to working with her on my next investment property.

Aya is an AMAZING realtor!! I had a few hiccups along the way (my fault not hers) and she was there every step of the way to guide me through every bit of it! I will recommend her to anyone who is looking to purchase a new home or to help you sell your home. Aya is very personable, knowledgeable, and listens to you in order to help you find what you're looking for. I trusted her the entire way of my home buying experience. This was my first home purchase and I can TRULY give all of the credit to Aya!! She does not try to sell the house to you, she shows you what you've asked for, listens to your pros and cons and brings even more to the table. She truly treated me as if I were her only client. My review does not touch the gratitude and thankfulness I have for her. My daughter and I have a beautiful home and have Aya to thank for that.

Aya was introduced us through an inquiry on Zillow. She showed us a home we were interested in and we put down a contract to purchase. Aya was meticulous with details and kept us informed throughout the offer, contract negotiation, inspection and close. Aya's calm professional demeanor was welcome and appreciated. If you are seeking to work with an agent that is focused on making the home-buying experience a joy, Aya is your agent!
