“Margot is a wonderful broker. She guided us through the process and made dealing with the business seller and seller's broker actually bearable. She is knowledgeable, kind and I can't begin to describe how much legwork she did for us. As first-time buyers, we were frequently lost. She guided us through it with class and humor.”
