Margarit was a pleasure to work with. She never pressured us (a rare and very respectable characteristic in a realtor) and managed to help us close on the property in just 3 weeks – unheard of, especially in California! She helped us prioritize next steps, gave reminders throughout the process, and was honest about pros/cons she saw when showing us different houses. We ultimately got this house as the backup buyers and she ensured we completed everything necessary to be in the position to purchase the home if the first buyers fell through. At times we (as excited buyers) were too hesitant to push back on the seller because we really wanted the house but Margarit helped us identify the areas we really needed to push back on (ie. performing additional inspections before removing contingencies). Margarit is trustworthy, knowledgeable, and establishes a great rapport with fellow realtors. She has the ability to balance a strong sense of urgency with a friendliness that makes the process enjoyable. We could not have asked for a better realtor!
