One word for Margaret is "caring". She truly cares about my needs and financial conditions. She always fights for the best possible deal for me. As a first time home buyer, I don't know much about the process of buying a property. Margaret patiently explains every single question I have and step through the process one by one with me without giving any pressure on me. I feel so comfortable working with her that now I know a lot more than what I knew about the home buying process. We happened to be so lucky that I decided to make an offer on the second house that we saw. I fell in love at the house on the first sight and I told Margaret about it. Knowing my interest, we directly wrote up an offer and submit it the night night that day. Her negotiation skill is undoubtedly excellent as our offer was accepted right away. The process of escrow until closing went very smooth; thanks to her +/- 15 years in real estate business.

I still remember the time we had to make a choice as to whom we should hire as our realtor to buy a house. There were many considerations that came to mind. Our family has had our share of bad experiences with realtors. One realtor we worked with did not work full time, causing us to lose the momentum. We ended up selling it for $200,000 less. Another realtor we had was not very knowledgeable and wasn't able to help us with strategies. We did consider Redfin due to a fairly large refund they'd give back to buyer but we felt that Redfin would not give full services as a traditional real estate agent would.

Choosing Margaret, who is also our friend, was the best decision for us and our family. She has gone above and beyond to help us. From picking up and taking my elderly parents to multiple open houses and discussing strategies even treating us to lunches, just to mention a few, she has done with kindness and a smile on her face. It was a long process for us to purchase a house, and never once did she pressure us to buy one that we weren't very sure of.

When we finally put in an offer for a house that we liked, and then changed our mind, Margaret was very patient and understanding about it. The second offer that we put in, the seller's agent was very difficult to work with - but Margaret remained professional and pleasant to deal with. She was knowledgable and her team at Intero was very helpful during our home purchase. Her services did not stop when we finally bought a house. She was helping us with the preparation of our house blessing, from bringing flowers and tablecloth for the altar to decorating the house.

We never knew any realtor that works as hard as her, and we cannot thank and recommend her enough for her services.

Margaret knows how to get the most money for her investment clients.She's fact based and supports all her information with actual data and comps as opposed to telling a listing agent some arbitrary number. She asks lots of questions and is persistant in getting all the information needed for her clients to make an honest offer thats works for all parties.

We have just closed a 10 day escrow which has been flawless in its execution. I found her attention to detail and diligence with disclosures is bar none . Her long experience working in real estate and her excellent relationships with other realtors will bring you the best deal you ever had with your next investment.

If you place your trust in Margaret you will not regret it!.

Margaret helped my mom and i find a beautiful town home in Dublin,Ca. In addition I asked if she could find a tenant for our purchase. She took the time and much effort of showing the place and screening prospective tenants for us. We were able to find a nice tenant for our property in the end. We are very happy with the Job Margaret did for us would highly recommend her any estate transactions.

To say that Margaret is an excellent realtor is an understatement — for me, she is EXCEPTIONAL. I’ve worked with many real estate agents in the past, and Margaret is simply the best realtor I’ve known. She’s been our realtor since 2009 and she has helped us with 4 different real estate transactions — as seller’s agent to 2 tough short sale transactions, as buyer’s agent when we bought our condo, and as seller’s agent again when we sold our condo recently. In all those 4 transactions, she consistently gave us the best service that we could possibly get.

Here are some qualities that I really like about Margaret:

- she acts quickly and is very proactive
- she’s always on top of things
- she always keeps us updated
- she is very hardworking
- she always keeps her clients best interest in mind
- she is funny and easy to get along with

Having the above qualities make Margaret an “excellent” realtor, but what sets her apart from other realtors are the following qualities that make her an “exceptional” realtor:

1.) She would do anything just to make things easier for her clients, even the tasks that are outside the scope of her job as a realtor. When we moved out of state, it was difficult for us to monitor the construction/renovation that was going on in our condo in California. Luckily, Margaret was there to help us. She would always check up on the progress of our condo and made sure that the contractor was doing his job properly. She even helped us shop around for materials so that we could get the best bang for our buck!

2.) She’s very innovative and aggressive with her marketing strategies. As a matter of fact, we already got an offer for our condo even before it was listed on MLS. In contrast, the other 3 condo units being sold in our complex at that time had been in the market for months. If we didn’t have Margaret, our house would probably still be sitting in the market waiting for a buyer to come.

3.) She has excellent negotiation skills both as a buyer’s agent and as a seller’s agent. She doesn’t easily back down in negotiations. In our recent sale, we were able to sell the house for $35K above the listing price despite the fact that the other home prices in the area were dropping down.

Margaret isn’t just a realtor for us. She has become our friend, and we consider her part of our family. Thank you, Margaret, for all the services you’ve provided us all these years!

My husband and I were trying to get our house ready for sale for months but not making much progress. Margaret provided the expertise and impetus we needed to chose a contractor and finish decluttering. I’m pretty sure we’d still be in that house if it were not for her.

Once on the market, she was able to bring in a quality offer above our asking price! She also was very helpful in crafting the offer for the home we were buying. We were able to get it below asking price and lower than we were willing to pay — pretty much unheard of in this market thanks to her negotiation skills.

Margaret did an amazing job at representing her buyer on a deal we just closed in Hayward hills. Of the 9 offers we received, Margaret was one of two that showed up to present the offer to the seller- good thing she did as her offer wasn't the highest dollar amount and didn't have the best terms but our seller was most impressed with her, the presentation and buyers story. She did all promised and on schedule! Thanks again Margaret!

Margaret is an excellent realtor. She made our family felt like the most important client because she always put us first. Throughout the long and confusing process, she was always patient with us and happily answered any questions we had. She is not afraid to give us her honest opinion and guidance because she wanted the best for us. We were able to find a beautiful first home within our budget and it's all thanks to Margaret.

Margaret had been excellent from Day 1. Since we were first time home buyers, she was very patient with us and very helpful in providing us insight and direction as we made our decisions. Along the way, she gently guided us and was very accessible everytime we needed something. This journey has been very pleasant and we are very grateful to Margaret for making this a wonderful experience for us.
