María José studied architecture and although she never received her degree she has always remained interested and updated in the latest architectural trends. Her appreciation and knowledge of the real estate market led her to work in numerous real estate projects and developments before she took a leave of absence to dedicate herself to raising her 5 children.
In 2008 she joined the sales staff in a small real estate firm and later on in 2013 she spread her wings and founded her own company. Since the begginning María José has dedicated her time to building a solid and trustworthy sales team, which offers clients a wide variety of real estate options. Ranging from Santiago's extensive house and apartment market, beachfront properties, recreational and agricultural estates and vineyards; Borquez y Asociados with María José's leadership has excelled and become one of Chile's premier real estate firms. In late 2016 Borquez y Asociados became a Christie's affiliate, María José continues working toward greater challenges and is opening another office in Peru .
In November 2017 with her partner and the development manager, Bórquez y Asociados opened a new office in Lima, which is also a Christie´s affiliate. María José is always exploring new opportunities and horizons.
