Out of school in 2008, she began her career working for the city of Chandler and Phoenix with city employee and home benefits.

Maria has lived in Austin for the past eleven years and has fallen in love with this city. As a native Arizonan, she understands the importance of finding a home in a neighborhood that suits you when relocating and also the stress of selling your beloved home when it is time to move away from the heart of Texas.
Maria knows that buying or selling your home is a life-altering decision. It is a personal event that takes patience, care, and willingness to change direction at any moment. This is Maria’s wheelhouse, she thrives under pressure and has an abundance of patience.
Maria fell in love with the research of real estate first, so she loves to dig into a neighborhood, or a home and find out everything to position her clients at their best and most knowledgeable.
Maria, along with a busy career in real estate and raising her daughter, finds time for philanthropy. She volunteers regularly with her daughter’s school and a local food bank. With her extensive background in food and drink, she cooks for family and friends almost daily and loves to create craft cocktail recipes.

The theater is one of Maria’s passions, as she was an actor for many years.

"We could easily write a novel of praise in this space. After several experiences with lackluster realtors over the years, meeting Kevin Purvis was a breath of fresh air. He is by far the hardest working realtor we've met and truly makes you feel like your home is the most important thing on his calendar. He is easy going, authentic and his charisma is undeniable. Simply put, Kevin makes this process fun. We are huge fans and have become good friends over the course of selling and buying our homes."
"We loved working with Kevin. He is very personable and easy to communicate with. He was always easy to get a hold of and got back to us in a timely manner when needed. His ideas and staging of our house really put the final touch on the sale of our house! He was a great realtor for us!"
"Kevin Purvis is your friend-turned-real-estate-agent. He's someone you trust to digest your needs and concerns and act intentionally with your best interest at heart. He's attentive, approachable, and relatable. Kevin quickly found out about the closing from the seller's agent, and helped us secure a personalized bid by that evening. Ultimately, if it hadn't been for Kevin's recommendation to come to ATX that weekend to see the homes we liked, we wouldn't have ended up in our dream home. Kevin helped us push up timelines whenever possible, and despite how quickly everything went (27 days from contact to close!), the entire process was very personal and heartfelt. I highly recommend Kevin to anyone looking to buy in Austin, we wouldn't have done this process with anyone else."
"My husband and I were very, very fortunate to have met Kevin. We met him by chance at an open house, and immediately knew that he was a realtor that actually cared about his clients. We kept in touch with him after that open house, and worked with him for several months before moving into our current home. Kevin was very patient in communicating with us via email text, and phone calls. Kevin really looked out for us, and even suggested that my husband and I reconsider pursuing a much more expensive house for sale based on how the seller’s realtor clearly didn’t respect our time. Kevin could’ve made more money based on the higher listing price, but he looked out for our interest over money. I wholeheartedly recommend Kevin to anyone looking for a home."
"As first-time home buyers, we could not have been more thankful to have worked with Kevin to purchase our home. Kevin was there for us from the moment we first met up and even after we got the keys to answer any questions, check-in with us, and help us troubleshoot any challenges that arose. Even with the stressors of home buying, we never felt unsupported or worried about any stage of the process, because Kevin kept us in the loop with everything and made sure to be available to us whenever we needed it. He also helped explain the process each step of the way so we never felt like we were missing any information. From the get-go, he was honest with us and watched out for us with deals that didn't feel right. We're now happier than ever in our new home and cannot recommend Kevin highly enough. We look forward to using him to sell and buy homes in the future!"
