Maria is extremely excited to have the opportunity to open Option 1 Shore Realty. As a managing partner, she is able to put her management skills to work as well as her sales skills. She is the Matchmaker – finding the perfect home for every homebuyer.
As a licensed full-time realtor for 15 yrs, Maria LaGanga received the Bronze Circle of Excellence award from the New Jersey Association of Realtors in 2004, 2005 and 2006. Suffering from an injury in 2007, she was only able to work part time, however, she never lost her passion for helping others to realize their dream of home ownership – whether it was their first home or a relocation from another. She saw, and continues to seethe beauty and character of a home – regardless of the age. She is often helpful in the decoration of homes and worked along side investors and families after Superstorm Sandy to help rebuild the Jersey Shore.
