Clients are saying:
"Maggie is simply the best! When we decided we were interested in buying a place, my partner and I met with Maggie and her business partner Valeria and went over our requirements, including showing Maggie a few places we wanted to see right off the bat. When you’re looking at buying your dream home, immediacy is key! I was probably a little TOO excited and wanted to see everything yesterday, but Maggie was incredibly responsive to the point where we felt like we were her top priority as clients. She was great about scheduling showings for places we were interested in but also places we hadn’t necessarily considered that would be a good fit for our needs. She raised legitimate concerns about floor plan layout, transportation, and everything else that’s not front of mind when you’re bouncing around the place thinking you’ve found the one. If there was something Maggie didn’t know or was unsure about, she immediately contacted Valeria who always had an answer and some good advice. When we actually DID find the one (day three of showings!), Maggie moved quickly to ensure we could put in our offer and was super attentive every step of the way, including checking in regularly after closing to tie up any loose ends.
Aside from being an awesome broker, Maggie is incredibly nice, easy to talk to, and funny. She’s punctual, has a clean car, picked us up and dropped us off from our showings and any appointments, and she listened to our preferences. I HIGHLY recommend her!"
"When helping me search for my apartment, Maggie put the extra effort in to find places with everything I was looking for while staying in my price range. She is knowledgable about many neighborhoods, easy to get in touch with and genuinely enjoyable to be around. Working with her made the whole process easy."
