Maria Muchal BertaAssociate Broker, Certified Residential Appraiser #AB068367
If you were to describe me in one word, it would be ambitious. I always have a strong determination to succeed in anything I do. I am also a leader and always have been.
I was born and raised in Jessup. I graduated from Valley View High School. During high school, I was Secretary of Student Council, Treasurer of my class, Vice President of S.A.D.D. and President of the Art Club.
I continued my love of art and fashion at NYC’s Parsons, The New School for Design, where I was elected President of my dorm, The Marlton House. During school, I landed an internship with Sony Music Group doing marketing and graphic design, specifically Columbia and Epic Records. During the four years of school, I worked at Express as a fashion expert and spent a summer assisting local designer John Mackey. In May 2010, I proudly graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in Business majoring in Design and Management.
My passion for design led me into the real estate field. I earned my agent’s license in 2013 while studying to become an appraiser. Three short years later, I became a Certified Residential Appraiser. I currently work for both Realty Network Group as an agent and O’Hara Appraisal Group as an appraiser. I am always setting higher goals for myself and am presently seeking my Real Estate Broker’s license.
When I am not studying or working, I enjoy volunteering in my community. I sit as a member of the Jessup Hose Company where I was the chairwoman of this year’s wine fest with more than 40 vendors and I led the kitchen crew for our annual carnival. I also volunteer for the Citizens for a Healthy Jessup, Ronald McDonald House and St. Joseph’s Center.
I live in Jessup with my wonderful husband, Jon and our two bunnies, Lady and Luggs.
