Born and raised in Arlington, Virginia, Mónica Maldonado moved to Caracas, Venezuela, at the age of 14 where she lived for 25 years. In the year 2000 Mónica decided to visit her brother and his family in Aiken, SC. The plan was to stay three months, but just like so many others, she fell in love with the area and never looked back.
Mónica is bi-cultural and fluent in both English and Spanish. After 13 years of experience in Communications and Public Relations and 21 years in Education, Mónica’s professional life shifted gears. Her enthusiasm for all things Aiken and her experience in Public Relations and Marketing helped her launch her career in Real Estate. She began as an assistant to a very successful sales team at Woodside Development LLC, where she learned the ins and outs of selling development property in what today is known as a Southern Living Inspired Community, Woodside Plantation. Very soon and with the encouragement of family, friends, and colleagues she decided to pursue her Real Estate License.
Call it luck, fate, or a fortunate stroke of serendipity, Mónica’s path crossed with the path of Pat Roberts, a well-known Aiken Realtor with over 35 years of experience selling Aiken. Pat welcomed Mónica to her team, and the rest is history.
Monica’s expertise is working with buyers. She fully enjoys every aspect of the buying process, from her first meet and greet with her buyers all the way to the closing table. Her clients always say that she has an innate ability to immediately capture their wants and needs which makes it very easy for her to help them find their new home. She understands that the buying process can often be challenging and complicated, so she prefers to focus on taking the pressure off her clients. That way they can make clear and concise decisions and relax and enjoy the ride.
Taking her clients to a successful closing and seeing their excited faces on closing day is Monica’s ultimate goal, and she firmly believes that everything starts by building a relationship consisting of trust, communication, loyalty, honesty, and professionalism. From day one she has her client’s best interest at heart.
When Monica is not driving all over Aiken County sharing her love and passion for Aiken, she can be found cooking, listening to music, watching her favorite TV shows and movies, going to equestrian events, and spending time with family and friends. In her own words, “If I’m not out selling homes, I am in my happy place when I’m with my brother, my three incredible nephews and with my beloved Maltese, GiGi!”
