"Margaret Burton is an incredible broker.She is so hard working and professional.We will continue to use her in the future.The Lee Family"

"Margaret Burton went above and beyond what I expected from a realtor. She is vivacious, friendly and so good at what she does. I told her my price range and a few specifics I needed in a home. She did her research before we ever met. When she picked my daughter and I up for our first "house walk" she had chosen the properties very deliberately. I never dreamed this could happen, but I found my house that first day!Margaret has a wealth of resources. She recommended an excellent lawyer, house inspector, and painter -all of which I was greatly satisfied with. There was very little time between finding my house and the closing. Margaret stayed in close contact and guided me through "unknown territory." Her positive attitude and superior expertise made it a stress free experience for me.Margaret treated me as a friend, right from the beginning. I am looking forward to her visiting my new home and proudly showing her how I have transfixed it. Sincerely,Carol Smith Semple"
