Margaret is an industry leader in Bay Area real estate who believes that clear, consistent counsel and communication are the foundations of every successful endeavor. Her discerning eye, her skill at negotiation and her contagious passion for all things real estate are evident in both her clients’ glowing testimonials and the elite top producer status she has achieved in the North Bay: Margaret is in the Top 1% of both Petaluma and Sonoma County Realtors.
With an appreciation and passion for the trades and design, Margaret excels when it comes to the production phase of a listing. With attention to every detail and the big picture, she has a real understanding of maximizing her clients profits and showing every listing in their best light. This unique ability is a true benefit to her buyers as well, as she is able to quickly assess the upside potential of properties and the costs associated with those changes.
Self-motivated, goal-oriented and highly-organized, Margaret is fully client-focused. She spends a lot of time listening – drawing out her clients’ needs, hearing their stories, understanding their goals.
Born in Berkeley, Margaret’s contractor and artist parents moved to West Marin, where she grew up in Inverness and Point Reyes Station. A deeply-experienced renovator herself, Margaret has completed several extensive remodels, while raising her two children with her husband Andy. In the process, she has developed an extensive network of local resources and top artisans throughout the region to support her clients in every aspect of their ventures.
Outside of real estate, Margaret is an avid reader, loves being outdoors, and she devotes her time to her three rescue cats and two senior Dachshunds. Margaret is active in her efforts to shelter the homeless – annually organizing the Creature Comfort Donation Drive, and supporting local groups including Una Vida, C.O.T.S, Petaluma People’s Services, North Bay Animal Services and Dogwood Animal Rescue.
