Maria Gomez Head of Exclusives

Born and raised in Yorkshire, UK, Maria came to Marbella in 1984, fell in love with local lifestyle and, being bi-lingual (English & Spanish), saw many work opportunities. Later, she had a good job in sales & marketing in the airline business, and moved to London to work with British Airways. Marbella’s blue sky made her come back.
In 1993, Maria started working in property management, rentals and then sales, and became the Sales Director of the Monte Mayor Golf & Country Club in 1999. With a longstanding history in Marbella market, she founded her own real estate company, which made her appreciate even more the work behind the scenes. She successfully sold her company, but remained in the industry, as she says, “when you do something you love, it’s not work anymore”.
In 2023, Maria joined Drumelia, considering its marketing far ahead of other companies’ in Marbella’s luxury market. Her duties include dealing with the exclusive listed properties, keeping owners happy with our service, updated with our marketing and viewings, guiding them to price their properties correctly. She co-ordinates with the listing department to present the properties in the best light possible. Maria’s experience, strong work ethic, negotiation skills, wealth of contacts, and commitment to quality made her a great asset to Drumelia.
Hard/smart working, Maria firmly believes in consistency, product knowledge, and nurturing relationships with agents, lawyers, architects and other professionals. Her favourite sayings “The harder I work, the luckier I get!” and “Treat people as you want them to treat you» speak for themselves.
Passionate about living every day to the full, Maria did paragliding and scuba diving all over the world, drove on racetracks of Zandvoort, the Netherlands, and Ascari, about 1 hour from Marbella. Now, she is into golf and wine tasting, taking a more relaxed approach to life.
