Team Leaders

When I started my search for a realtor, it was quite a headache. There seemed to be an endless number of options and even more websites telling me what to look for and what to do prior to picking one. I had reached out to a few but ended up going with Rick and Margo after our initial meeting because of their professionalism and knowledge.. and having a team is always better right? :) I honestly had many moments where I was thinking - wait, should I be doing something? filling out paperwork? is there anything I need to be doing? but it was all taken care of by Rick and Margo. They were very informative and provided EVERYTHING I needed when it came to purchasing a home. I didn't have to research anything myself and their connections turned out to be just as helpful and made the whole process so smooth. Looking back, they hit all the notes/advice from websites telling me what to look for in a good realtor. Always available, made me feel like I was the only client, responsive, and knowledgeable. Thank you Rick and Margo!!!!

Rick and Margo went over and above what I would expect and have seen from other brokers I have dealt with in getting our house prepared to sell. They personally took the time to meet with all the agencies and contractors and managed all the work that needed to be done around the house. I was thoroughly impressed and would recommend them to anyone looking to sell their home.

We've known Margo and Rick as friends but did not collaborate professionally until sale of home. The sale of the home took intense preparation and repair of which Margo and Rick handled extraordinarily well and beyond my personal expectations. Without a doubt I will use their real estate services in the future. As with any real estate sale there are surprises of which Margo and Rick handled with tremendous patience, professionalism and in a timely manner. For example, surprise repairs appeared which were not indicated on an initial inspection. Margo and Rick managed the quick repair work with a contractor and the sale of the home went forward without delay. Again I cannot say enough about the Margo and Rick, their support staff and the entire experience. Well, done!

"Margo has led organizations to accomplishments through her visioning and detailed planning. Her efforts have earned her the respect within the Sacramento community. She taught me tips and rules that I was unaware of, and would still be unaware had it not been for her expertise and guidance. Margo has a calm and logical method of helping others that truly connected and inspired me."
