Pinecrest, Palmetto Bay & SW Miami Real Estate
Get to know Maggie Dokic
Today's home sellers who face difficult decisions due to loss of market value in their home need professional, competent and caring guidance more than ever. I have been trained as a SFR - Short Sales & Foreclosure Resource. I am your SFR! You have options. Let me tell you what they may be.
I am a real estate professional specializing in residential sales in Southwest Miami-Dade County, specifically the areas southwest of Miami Metrozoo, the Redland (live here, work here, love it) the Village of Palmetto Bay, Homestead, and beyond. I keep up with today's technology and use it to market my clients' homes effectively.
I custom-tailor a marketing plan for each of the homes I sell. No cookie-cutter approach for me. How do I market your home more effectively? Here's a sampling of how I do that:
I place your home on the local Multiple Listing Service (MLS). I post a sign in front of your home so folks know it's for sale. This way they call me to set up appointments to see it and not ring your doorbell at the most inopportune times. I take dozens of pictures of your home so we can really do some good marketing. Did you ever see a listing online and only saw the exterior shot? It makes people wonder how bad the interior is if they don't want to show it. I create a virtual tour of your home so serious buyers will spend more time looking at your listing and not click ahead to the next one. The majority of real estate agents in Miami Dade County do not offer virtual tours of their listings. And the ones that do, may do so selectively for their most expensive listings only. I offer virtual tours for all my listings, regardless of the listing price. I create this tour with your help so we can highlight your home's best features and everyone can see what makes it special. You can see a sample of one of my virtual tours by clicking here. Have you visited Realtor.com lately? Every single active listing in the United States is on there. That's because Realtor.com is the consumer site of the National Association of Realtors. But don't let anybody fool you. Just because the listing is there doesn't mean the marketing is the same for all of them. That's because Realtor.com, by default, provides one picture for each listing and no more. I pay extra so that my home sellers have the best marketing program on Realtor.com, which, by the way, is the most widely visited real estate website of all. It holds the lion's share of consumer's attention who spend 82% of their online home shopping time on there. Here's how my Realtor.com marketing differs from the standard: Realtor.com allows agents who spend the extra money to post up to 25 pictures. Not all properties can benefit from that many pictures, but I add as many as possible to my listings so that they are shown in their best light. My listings all have customized descriptions so buyers can read all about what makes your property special and perfect for them. My listings have my contact info there to make it easy to set up an appointment to view the home. My listings can be emailed to friends and family or the significant other.
I have more than 8 years experience buying and selling real estate in the area I service. Trusting me with the sale of what could be your biggest asset is a responsibility I do not take lightly. I am fully licensed as a real estate broker but choose to serve my customers as a Broker-Associate. That means I have the education, experience and credentials to be a Broker but continue to sell real estate and serve the needs of my customers.
In my free time I like to be with my daughters (chauffering back and forth to cheerleading events it seems) and am active at church. If time permits, tending to the garden, crafting and reading rank high on my list, as well as just spending time with family and good friends.
I am a member in good standing of the National Association of Realtors, the Florida Association of Realtors, the Realtor Association of Miami-Dade County, the Realtor Association of Greater Miami & the Beaches as well as the Institute for Luxury Home Marketing.

I focus on residential properties. Whether you're buying or selling, I can help you!
Finding the right home for someone, in the right neighborhood, gives me a thrill. I want them to fall in love with their new home and, years down the road, continue waving at me when they see me pass by, using all five fingers!
As for sellers, I love using all the different resources available to market their home for sale. In today's market and technologically savvy environment, that means using the internet and using it well. Making sure that their home gets the exposure it merits is a top priority. Once that offer is accepted, there's still lots of work to be done and I'm passionate about all of it.
Testimonials for Maggie Dokic
Maggie, thank you so much for your help last week. I was going crazy with my husband out of town and a decision to make. Your helpful advice and experience were greatly appreciated. I dont know what I would have done without your help. You're my realtor for life.
To The Best Realtor, Maggie Dokic,
Please dont mind this dirty envelope. It is my honest proof and good intentions of sending this long ago (the original envelope).
I know you dont even believe what you are seeing. After one year and almost three months this crazy lady is sending a thank you.
Maggie, there is no excuse that I can give for this late thank you because you did not deserve for this to be late at all. I dont believe that I could have gotten a better Realtor. With much thanks do I thank you for such a wonderful, QUICK & PROFITABLE sale of my home!!!
Thank you so very much!!!
I am writing this letter to give testimony of my experience as a first-time home buyer and of the extreme benefit I received by using the services of Maggie Dokic.
My wife and I spent many months on our own trying to find a home. We were never able to find one which satisfied my expectations as well as hers. Then we came across Maggie and she was our guiding light. Not only did she find us a perfect home, but she was able to negotiate on our behalf with the seller so that we were all satisfied.
Then came the doubts and fear associated with our purchase. We knew nothing about the home buying process. All the fees associated with a closing were confusing. Maggie came to the rescue again, explaining each item one by one so that I understood fully what everything meant.
I sincerely appreciate everything Maggie did to help us during the purchase of our home. Without any reservations I would recommend her to anyone needing a Realtor. Maggie has a wonderful way with her customers and a fine quality about her.
