Marguerite has a a rare depth of enthusiasm and knowledge about Tacoma, which makes her insight as an agent invaluable. In fact, she introduced me to a great Tacoma agent who helped me with the challenge of selling my house from across the country. Her expertise extends beyond the borders of Pierce County, as I discovered in a pinch: I wanted to buy a home in Los Angeles, but with the dizzying array of options, and the challenging market, I didn't know where to turn. Of course, I should have started by asking Marguerite, because she quickly got me in touch with an agent I could trust. Both in Tacoma and Los Angeles, the agents she recommended exhibited the same warmth, acumen, and confident professionalism I admire in Marguerite.
We honestly cannot recommend Marguerite highly enough if you are planning to buy a home in Tacoma. From the moment we contacted Marguerite to the day we walked through the front door of our awesome new house, there was never a moment where we didn't feel like she was by our side.
Marguerite is THE Queen of Tacoma. Spend an afternoon driving around the area with her, and you will FEEL her love for her town...and she knows everything and everyone in it!
I reached out to Marguerite basically saying "not ready to buy but looking for information". I expected her to either delete my email or laugh and laugh and tell me to check back in when I was serious. Much to my surprise and delight she wrote back saying she would love to chat and fill me in on Tacoma!
I would never have been able to purchase a home with out Marguerites help. from start to finish she made sure I was informed and that I was taken care of. She made sure I was not just buying something, but that I bought the right thing.
It took us TWO YEARS to find our house, and that wasn't even the hardest part of the buying process. I am so relieved to have had Marguerite on our side though it all and I can't imagine how she could have been more helpful, professional, and pleasant to work with.
Marguerite has made our first time home buying experience fun and as low stress as it can get! She's super knowledgable about the Tacoma area and guided us (never pushed us) in the right direction - from our budget or the kind of home the VA would be willing to finance to neighborhoods and what questions to ask the inspector.
Coming from Seattle to a new city to purchase our first home proved to be WAY easier than we anticipated, and we owe all that ease to Marguerite. She is not only knowledgeable of the city, she is a huge fan. And her enthusiasm is contagious. We found our house the first day of looking, and yes--we still love it 7 months later. We would recommend her to anyone, anywhere, anytime.
Look no further. Marguerite is the best Realtor you'll find for properties in Tacoma. She can listen to what you're looking for, and suggest the right neighborhoods to suit your needs. We used her for our second home purchase in Tacoma's Stadium District and found her to be so much more knowledgeable, flexible and AVAILABLE than our previous agent.
