Agent, Real Estate Salesperson (13 years experience)
Margo has a casual and playful style which certainly does not hinder her from being an effective agent. As I learned, there are several dozen communications that must happen in a short period of time. Margo was on-top of it all and replied to EVERY email, text, voice-mail instantly...a very comforting experience when you rely on their expertise. Ultimately, Margo worked for me, and quickly got me my dream house after an exhausting and extensive search. She is a closer. I appreciate her services very much and enjoyed our friendship at the same time.
Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $100K in Oak Park, MI.
As a first home buyer I had no idea what to expect. From the moment I met margo she was positive, helpful, knowledgeable, but most importantly understanding. There were a few snags here and there as with any large purchase, but Margo always kept me up to date. We also used a lender who she was familiar with, Josh Rubin at Horizon financial who was outstanding. I'm writing this from my new home that is no doubt a product of her persistance and knowledge. I would recommend her to anyone.
Bought a Condo home in 2014 for approximately $175K in Farmington Hills, MI.
Margo helped me sell my old home in 10 days and obtain my dream condo on the second day looking. She always called me back the same day and made me comfortable at each step of the process. I needed assistance with financing due to my condo not being available for traditional financing and she made it happen. Margo will help you get a home and be happy!
Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $350K in West Bloomfield, MI.
Margo was very personable and professional and has very good marketing skills. We listed our home in West Bloomfield and immediately had several showings. She was not pushy at all and did a lot of research to find comps to come up with a listing price. It was not easy as it was not a cookie cutter home. We were glad we chose her and would definitely do so again. Thanks Margo!
Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $125K in Milford, MI.
When initially in search of a realtor we ran across a few who acted disinterested or flat out said they would not be able to help us as soon as they found out our price range. Margo Borkin was the first person who showed a genuine interest in assisting us in finding a home..
This proved to be quite a lengthy process but Margo remained positive and encouraging the whole time. Whenever we had questions or wanted to see houses she was always quick to respond and was very flexible which was great, especially having to schedule around work.
We were also able to obtain our mortgage through a referral of hers (Josh Rubin at Horizon Financial Group) who was also great.
This didn't seem like " just a business deal", I felt as though Margo really cared about us and wanted to find the perfect house just as much as we did. Service like that cannot be taught and has become few and far between so is definitely worth recognizing when it occurs.
Thanks so much Margo for going above and beyond for us. We truly appreciate it.
Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $150K in Farmington, MI.
Margo was an absolute pleasure to work with. Fun, casual, and very low pressure, but sharp as a tack when it comes to her job. We felt like we were taken care of from the first day we met until long after closing on the house we eventually purchased. She responded almost immediately to any text, call, or email, and the people she works with are excellent as well. I really have nothing bad to say. The next time we move she'll be the one we call.
Sold a Condo home in 2014 for approximately $150K in Livonia, MI.
Our two sales (going and coming) had so many problems we could not have anticipated, especially thanks to Fannie Mae and FHA Homepath. Margo was smart, patient and professional through it all. She steered these complicated deals through to the finish and got us the deal we needed.
Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $150K in Southfield, MI.
Margo was great from start to finish. She made sound suggestions at the beginning regarding ways to make the house more sellable. Later, Margo arranged for photos and managed the buyers. She told us what we could expect and what she was going to do for my mom and me. And she delivered. Way to go Margo!
Sold a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $175K in Royal Oak, MI.
We used Margo to both buy our first home, then 3 years later, sell it and purchase our 2nd home. Through all transactions, she and her assistant were supportive and provided information and great advice to us as first time buyers, and first time sellers. She really knows the market and areas and is great at explaining the process to novice buyers and sellers.
From day one, Margo was always a professional. She has a pleasant personality; and
was very helpful with tips on how to prepare our Condo for the showings. In addition, knowing that we were constantly "on the road", trying to find a new home in Indiana; Margo was very good about keeping us updated on the progress of the sale.
