Service Areas: Hamilton Maxine Cortez has been around real estate from a young age as both of her parents were in the business. It’s no surprise that now that her children are grown that she decided this would be her next chapter. “I decided that I wanted to find a way to grow personally and professionally, and to contribute to my community in a positive manner. I know the importance of a home and the comfort it provides, so to be able to help people in finding a place they can make their home, is something I am greatly looking forward to. When I am not selling homes, I will continue to spend time with my family in the perfect chaos that we create,” she says.
She is excited to be part of the Golfi team and believes that the company’s ethics and customer service expectations reflect her own. She also loves the fact that the team is so involved in the local community, as that is something she is passionate about including in her own career. In her spare time she enjoys the outdoors, going out for dinners, travelling and socializing with friends and family. A former administrative assistant for a mortgage company, Maxine is well-versed in the busy world of real estate and is thrilled to be embarking on this new path.
“Greatness does not happen by staying in the comfort zone,” adds Maxine, who is also fluent in Spanish.
