What our clients are saying

  • “She is decisive when she needs to be – and hands off when she needs to be.”

    We’ve worked with Margot on two transactions and she is the absolute best. She sold our SF place off market in days and she helped us win our Marin home (years later) efficiently and smoothly while connecting us with her also super solid partners to sell our Oakland home this July 2022. She is decisive…

  • You’ll have a smooth, professional, honest experience!

All were fantastic, courteous, professional, and connected to everything going on. Never did we feel pressured, pushed, misguided, tricked, or deceived. They even gently but assertively steered me away from a…

    I met Shirley for the first time while she was having an open house showing and I was immediately impressed. She knew everything about not just the unit, the building, but also the entire area and market. She was the most knowledgeable agent I had met when it was already 6 or 7 months into…

  • She always wants the best for her clients.

    The beau and I have met many real estate agents, the majority of which don’t even bat an eye / get out of their chairs as they happily look over the bowl of agents cards they’ve already received during their open house. This is what sets Shirley apart. We met her when she was showing…

  • “For our next purchase the easiest decision we will make will be to call Evan”

    Evan is a saint! Anyone who is willing to deal with us a newbies is deserving of a medal and perhaps a bottle of wine! The good news is newbies we are no longer. Evan was so helpful, answering calls and emails at all hours, he worked diligently to keep the transaction moving, even when…

    We met Michelle when we were having some … trouble, let’s say, selling a very unique home. She took over for two other Realtors, and it was one of the best decisions we ever made. Some of this, of course, is luck, but we had three offers roll in pretty quickly. What isn’t luck is…

    Margot went above and beyond the call of duty on numerous occasions.
