Margie is very thorough in her work. She provides valuable recommendations which truly helped with the sale of the house. She helped us sell our home and find one. She has keen sense for detail and kept our needs always in mind. Her ability to evaluate a house is probably her key strength, it helped us in making the best offer. I would recommend her to anyone selling or buying a home.

Margie did a fantastic job in all phases of our home sale. She had great ideas and connections in our getting the house ready for sale, her marketing used all channels and was effective, and her attention to detail as the transaction was coming together was outstanding. Very business-like and totally on top of the whole process, we would strongly recommend her for anyone looking to sell their home.

We used Margie to sell our home. Here's why we would highly recommend Margie:
* She has great insight into how to stage your home to show it in its best light.
* She is good with numbers and will do the background analysis on other sales in the area
* She has many years of experience and will tell you - based on experience - when to negotiate on things, and when to let it go.
* She is good with follow up and detail and is always available.
* She is well respected and connected in the local real estate network, which makes it easy to close a deal.

“We sold our house and bought a new house with Margie six years ago and then again this past summer. Six years ago, we had two children under the age of two and this past summer we faced a challenging real estate market and economy. Each of these presented us with stressful times but in both cases we felt fortunate to have Margie at our side leading us and taking care of our best interests. She listened, respected our concerns, and made us feel confident in our choices and decisions. Her advice was invaluable, comforting, and always in our best interest (even in times when it may not have been in hers!). She is honest and she provided us with realistic expectations so that things did work out as we had hoped.

Of particular note, we realized and appreciated the level of experience, professionalism, and knowledge Margie provided in looking at houses to buy. She points out details and demands answers from sellers to questions that are important to consider (but can be easily forgotten) before making such a huge investment. Her vast experience enables her to offer suggestions about how to make a house you are looking at best meet your family’s needs (or point out that looking for another house would be best for your needs!). If we have to ever buy another house, we will depend on her consultation once again.

After dealing with many other agents through these experiences, we have realized that Margie stands out greatly among her peers. She will always be our top recommendation!”

“It was a unique honor and privilege to work with somebody as competent, knowledgeable and dedicated as Margie McShane. She quickly took the time to understand my needs and wants in a home and worked diligently to accommodate these requests. Her extreme knowledge of the New England area was reassuring and comforting especially for somebody like me who was not familiar with the area. Margie was not only concerned about making sure that me and my family got the best deal and what we were looking for, she was also very passionate about making sure the community that we chose was the best fit for me, my wife and our two daughters. Margie’s unprecedented knowledge of both existing homes and new construction was impressive. She took the guess work out of the equation for me. She knew what to ask, when to ask and who to ask in regards to the various properties that we researched. In the end, Margie played a pinnacle role in securing the house that I fell in love with very early on. I can honestly say it was a true pleasure both professionally and personally to work with Margie. She makes you feel like part of her family and treats the entire process as if she were helping one of her own relatives.”

“Buying a house would not have been possible without the assistance and expertise of Margie McShane. As first time home buyers we had no idea how to even begin the process of finding a house, but Margie walked us through each step in a professional and attentive manner. From the beginning, she made it clear that we were a top priority and should not hesitate to contact her by phone or email. Margie always kept a close eye on new listings and made sure to arrange viewings around our busy schedules. During each viewing she offered valuable insight and shared her opinion when solicited, but she ultimately left all the decisions up to us. We certainly would not have found our house without Margie’s determination and guidance. 

Once we were ready to make an offer, Margie helped us to choose a starting point by researching comparable properties in the area. Thanks to her, we were able to negotiate a fair price and move to the next phase of signing a Purchase and Sale Agreement. In our case, special circumstances caused the process to take longer than expected, but Margie stayed with us every step of the way. Once the closing date was finally set she made sure every last minute detail was in order, which really relieved a lot of our stress. 
Margie turned our dream of buying a home into a reality. We cannot overstate what a remarkable job she did. If you are looking to buy or sell, we highly recommend that you call Margie McShane.”

Sincerely,

“Margie is a highly ethical realtor who demonstrates and conveys a sincere desire to meet or exceed her clients’ needs. She is a strong listener, can recognize and address the diverse requirements of a single client, and can handle the most sensitive situations with grace, tact, and poise. Her knowledge and understanding of the local real estate market, her ability to sell the basis of value and need, and her resourcefulness during the search process made for a pleasant experience.

Margie is a confident real estate professional, is the “voice” of the marketplace, has a strong sense of community, and brings fresh perspective to the home buying process. I believe she is an asset to DeWolfe and brings to life the notion of “one stop and you’re home.”

Going into a tough selling season, your persistence in keeping our house highly visible made all the difference. You got results by aggressively pursuing all available channels. We couldn’t have asked for a better realtor."

Brad and Jennifer Billings

"As first-time buyers, we were full of questions and apprehension, and you did a great job of patiently and thoroughly answering our questions which made the entire process much more fun and interesting.

We also appreciate the amount of time you spent with us on the weekends taking us to the large list of towns we had an interest in seeing. And, we were happy to have you on our side as our buyer’s agent when we found this house and had to go up against another potential buyer."

"We were very pleased with the professional approach and expedient manner in which our home was sold. They kept us apprise of the progress with each showing and always arranged the showings with minimal disruption to our daily lives.

We also bought our new home with Margie and had a great experience with this process as well. “One Stop and You’re Home” is all that needs to be said."

Lynne and William Ciavarra
Mansfield, MA

"I just wanted to say thank-you for the great job you did in marketing and closing the sale on our house in Mansfield.

As you know moving our family to Chicago after 10 years in Mansfield was a very difficult and stressful situation made worse by my travel schedule. Your professionalism, dedication to the task, focus and assistance to my wife exceeded my expectations and set a hard standard for future real estate agents to meet. I also appreciate the fact that you kept us current on all activity and were always available when I needed to speak with you.

Again, many thanks for the great job marketing our home. Please feel free to use me as a reference in the future."
