    My Client Testimonials

    There are not enough wonderful things we can say about Margo! We are first-time homebuyers and found ourselves in a time-crunched situation in this low-inventory market. Still, she found the perfect house for our family and guided us through a multiple-offer/multiple-counter situation with knowledge and confidence. She truly looked after us throughout the process and helped every step of the way, even holding our fussy baby and entertaining our wild toddler so that we could focus! There is no one better to help you through such an important time. Thank you, Margo, for helping to make our dream come true! Alex and Conor
    We listed our Tahoe Donner home with Hillary and Margo who I was referred to. Needing a hassle-free transaction, the house sold before it ever hit the market making it as stress-free as one could ask for. They were great to work with and it was truly a seamless experience from start to finish. If you want a team who is responsive, has strong market knowledge and the marketing skills to sell your home I highly recommend them especially if you are out of the market. - Kathy
    We fell in love with the Donner Lake area and knew we wanted to buy in Tahoe Donner. Margo found us the perfect place. Her negotiation skills and knowledge of the area made the buying process very easy. We are so appreciative that she continues to check in with us and help us navigate Tahoe living. - Lea & Mike
    After experiencing an offer that fell apart, we reached out to Manon and Margo for their expertise and help in finding us our dream cabin in Serene Lakes. They were extremely knowledgeable in helping us to find a home, but also navigating and negotiating the process all the way up to handing us our keys. They were with us every step of the way and it was a joy to work with them. We knew we were in excellent hands and could trust them to get it done! - Mark and Sara
    When I needed to help a dear friend sell her Truckee home, I found Margo and Hillary. They are a fantastic team. They are warm, professional, knowledgeable, and supportive. They took such good care of her throughout the transaction -- they made me look good for choosing them! We are fortunate to have terrific agents in the Coldwell Banker ecosystem - Hillary and Margo are my choices for referrals in the Tahoe/Truckee market" -Shelley Coldwell Banker - Bay Area Agent
    My Husband and I reached out to Hillary and Margo earlier this year because we were relocating from Roseville to Truckee and needed help in finding the right home. When we met for the first time with Hillary and Margo in Truckee they took us to one home in each of the different neighborhoods so that we could get a feel for the town and a variety of homes priced on the bottom, middle and top of our price range so that we could see what we could get for our money. We loved working with Hillary and Margo because they were always available to take our calls, reply to our text messages or to show us homes at a moments notice. They never made us feel like we were inconveniencing them or bothering them with our many (MANY) requests and questions over the 4+ months that we worked with them to find the perfect home. They also got to know us and they knew exactly what we were looking for (and what we were NOT looking for) so they were always giving us a heads up when they saw a home they thought we would love, or why they thought we would not love a home. We thought this was especially helpful because we had to drive over an hour and a half each time we wanted to see homes in person, so we didnt waste our time in coming up to see a home that wasnt right for us. We will definitely refer them to our family and friends who are looking for a Realtor and would work with them again in the future! - Jenni and Ryan
    Margo and Hillary have been with us every step of the way in finding and buying our first home in Truckee. They are very easygoing and will go out of their way to make the process as smooth as possible. Thanks so much for helping us finally purchase our first home! Cyrus and Mei

    Choosing a Fixer-Upper for Your First Home

    Fixer-uppers are perfect for first-time home buyers who want to live in a pricier neighborhood but can't quite afford a move-in-ready home. It's a smart investment if you can buy property for less than market value and increase that value with the right improvements. Before you commit, hire an experienced home inspector and bring a general contractor along when you're viewing homes. Before you make an offer, create a budget for the work (add 10 percent for unforeseen issues). Subtract the cost ...
