Maria Avila

Senior Client Associate


As a Senior Client Associate, it is my responsibility to assist in maintaining Maria’s service standard. My primary focus is client and account management. I specialize in procedures needed to provide the highest quality of service that our clients expect and deserve.

I have been in the financial services industry since 1985. I started with EF Hutton and was there for 3 years, then moved to Bateman Eichler Hill Richards and through the course of several mergers became Kemper Securities and Everen Securities. In 1996 I started with Sutro which was then acquired by RBC Wealth Management in 2001.

I have been married for 25 years and live in Gilroy with my husband and two daughters. I have a strong Portuguese background and outside of work I love to enjoy the outdoors, camping and the beach.
