Margo and her team were great! Margo recommended a lender, found my home, listed and sold my former home. All rather quickly. Most important, Margo is knowledgeable, technology knowledgeable, organized, and hardworking.

I found Margo to be very courteous and professional. She was very informed about my needs as a first-time home buyer. She was very helpful in narrowing down houses that were right for me. She was a good negotiator and I feel that I got the house for a good price and in time for me to move in before the lease expired on my apartment. I would definitely recommend Margo Borkin to other friends or family looking for a new house.

Margo is a wonderful agent to have on your side. She will advocate for you and keep you informed throughout the entire home-buying process. Being a first timer, I needed additional explanation on a few things, and Margo was always immediately available to answer any questions I had. She was recommended to me after an unfulfilling experience with a different agent, and I will be referring anybody looking for a home to her services. Thank you, Margo! We are so happy with our home!

Margo was the best! She was able to help us sell our home within 7 days. Se was also very patient as we searched for our dream home when we finally found it. Margo always put our needs first and addressed any concerns that we had. She is timely, polite, and was always there when we needed her. She made us feel comfortable with our decisions. We feel as if she is now part of our family. If you are looking for someone who will give you one hundred percent and put your interests ahead of everything first, then Margo is your agent

We went into the real estate game without any leads, but found that Margo was an absolute joy to work with. From first meeting to signing the papers at closing, she was great! Margo is very well versed in all aspects of the process, took great pictures, made selling very easy, and was able to get us a price well above asking. To top it all off she's very funny

We had a great experience with Margo. She helped us sell our home in three days! Margo provided a lot of helpful hints to stage our home and make it as attractive to buyers as possible. She and her assistant were very responsive to emails getting back to me the same day. Margo was willing to show us several homes in the evening hours accommodating our work schedules

We were new to the area, but Margo helped us narrow our search. We were able to find the perfect home. Margo helped to make the entire process as painless as possible and we had fun doing it! Would definitely recommend.

We met Margo because she was the agent for a home that my husband and I wanted to see in person. She discussed with us what we wanted and then we evaluated what we saw. We were not in a hurry to buy, and we also lived out of town. But she convinced us that she should be our agent. It didn't bother her that we were not going to buy right away. She set us up with the online listings, with our parameters, so we could review what was for sale. The next time we were in town we looked at several places. After each house we discussed which one we preferred. Then at the next house we compared again. This was a perfect process to help us discover which home was the best for us. And we did find the perfect home. Margo always kept in contact with us. If we had a question, we got an immediate response. She was amazing, has great knowledge and lots of energy! I would recommend her to anyone.

Margo was fabulous to work with. She not only found us the perfect first home but helped us through the whole process of getting approved and finding a great lender. Very responsive and got us closed and Into our house within a month because she knew our prior lease was about to be up. We highly recommend Margo to anyone looking to buy or rent a home.

My family and I used Margo to sell our late sisters home after she passed. The home lacked updates and needed work, but Margo saw and highlighted all the positives. She helped us stage the home to look as inviting as possible, and fix the things that were most important, while not spending a bunch of money that we wouldn't see back in the end. Our neighbors all told us we were asking too high a price, it would never sell, etc etc. We had an offer in the first week just a few thousand below our asking price and closed in less than a month. She helped make an otherwise sad situation for our family less stressful and for that, we are thankful.

We were referred to Margo by my sister and have used her and her team in one way or another for a few moves over the years. We had to move out of state right out of college and rented for awhile. We were transferred to another state and decided to buy a house because we thought we would be there long term. Margo, and her team in Michigan, were able to find us a great local agent in Tennessee. A short time later, a new job presented itself to bring us home to Michigan. We now had to sell our house in Tennessee and needed somewhere to live in Michigan. It was a very crazy and stressful time for us. I can't imagine how much more chaotic it would have been without them. She had everything coordinated so the transition was as seamless as possible. We didn't even have to spend a crazy amount of time in temporary housing. They were able to help us find our home quickly and efficiently in the crazy and competitive Michigan real estate market. We couldn't be happier to finally be settled back home in Michigan and to of had Margo Borkin Real Estate to thank for finding our forever home.

I just recently moved to Michigan for a new job. Margo took what could have been a really stressful situation and made it a pleasure and even fun. I choose Margo because she was recommended to me by a friend. I went out house hunting with a few other agents before I choose Margo and here is why.
Margo is full of energy, honesty and is very responsive. She is not afraid to tell you when something looks fishy, or when you should research an area or an issue with the house further. She is not pushy and wanted the best house for me. She listened to everything that I was looking for, and she worked with me (even when I lived in Chicago) to find the perfect home. The biggest reason is that she never judged me for being on the younger side to buy a home. She never questioned my ability or judgement of buying a house where other agents did. She also had very good recommendations for lenders! She is the whole package.
If I had to say one thing as a negative about Margo it would be that she has a 10am rule. Meaning she does not prefer texts/calls before 10am. Being a morning person and being very excited about the process I was also having to watch the clock to make sure not to text her super early. But hey, everyone deserves to sleep in and have a break. She works weekends, weekdays, she works with your schedule. I would recommend Margo to anyone who needs an honest, trustworthy, spunky, intelligent agent. She is a lot of fun to work with and I couldn't be more grateful to have found her.

Margo is the best! She is very attentive and communicates very well. She isn't afraid to tell you the good, bad and ugly of properties. We bought our new house with a contingency to sell our current home as she said she'd sell it with no problem. Sure enough it was sold in a week. Her personality makes the whole search, offer, and final process more fun than it should be. We can't recommend her enough to friends and family.

Margo is very friendly, knowledgeable and persistent. If she says she is going to do something she gets it done. In 2009 Margo helped us locate the home we are currently in as a rental. She took us to several locations before we accepted this home. When the landlord was ready to sale she helped us purchase it
