Maria Parker assists her clients plan for their end of life health care wishes and the ultimate distribution of their wealth after death. She personally experienced the importance of planning at the time her father passed away. He had his wishes and instructions in a well prepared estate plan. In doing so, he provided comfort to his surviving spouse and family members because they knew exactly what he wanted. After this experience, Maria became passionate about helping her clients follow this same path and make a difficult time a bit easier on those who are left grieving.
After more than 15 years and hundreds of transactions as a real estate broker, Maria realized how few homeowners hold title to their property in a trust. Without a trust, surviving family members are exposed to a year long Probate process as well as being subject to (avoidable) higher capital gains taxes when they inherit the property. Maria is dedicated to helping her clients have the appropriate documents in place so the family can continue on and receive the legacy they are intended without lengthy court involvement and with the greatest possible tax savings.
