"Margo Allan is THE Eastside lakefront real estate specialist par excellence - where she helped me quickly identify and purchase my home on Lake Sammamish. Margo is always "on" and two-steps ahead of everyone else with an inside-knowledge of the local lakefront market and pre-sales that only decades of experience can obtain. Margo doesn't stop with the purchase and sale contract ... you will find her helping you with closing details and driving the deal all the way to close. Whether buying or selling, Margo is the ONLY choice for your lakefront real estate specialist." - Jzebala

"I cannot describe how personally and professionally satisfying it was to work with Margo. I sold a home on Lake Sammamish- a sale that only took a week. Margo had been the seller's agent on a prior home I purchased on the lake. I think my agent had some difficulties with the negotiations, but as I listened, I thought, "Well, sounds to me like she's just doing her job!!" (Come to think of it, I've never told her that story!! Haha!!) I was impressed from afar and decided if I ever did another transaction on the lake, I would call Margo. Brilliant decision on my part. I called Margo and we discussed the market. She gave me the pro's and con's of the market, but also pointed out there was very little inventory available, so it seemed like we were going to be selling into a seller market. She was spot on. We had showings the first two days of the and within a week we had accepted an offer just above asking price from a couple who seemed very nice and very professional. The closing went off without a hitch. Throughout the process Margo was very friendly, but also very professional. Our communication was efficient and effective. Her team handled all the paperwork details. The closing actually took place before the agreed on date, which worked just great for the buyers and for me. It was simply a great pleasure to do business with someone who is so obviously skilled, so incredibly friendly and so amazingly effective. Hire Margo. Listen to her advice. Your transaction will be done at breakneck speed. Margo, thank you so much!" - Daniel S.
