We recently purchased a home with Margaret Shepherd as our realtor. Everything was done remotely from the east coast & the home was purchased sight unseen. We are so thankful for Margaret as to her knowledge and professionalism throughout the entire process. Margaret went above and beyond what is expected of any realtor. She worked endless hours to make this sale a reality. We are so pleased with the outcome and consider Margaret a friend as we make the move to California.”
