Lamberton's experience and professionalism managed the details and closed the sale in a difficult economy.
I was given Margaret's name and number from my accountant who has used Margaret for some of his property purchases. I was told that she is very professional and knew the NW part of DC really well. In my mind, that was an understatement.
We purchased the condo with Margaret's help in '95 for our son to use for his last 2 years at Gw, and then in 2001 when we decided to sell the property we worked with her. Even during the period when we held the property, Margaret was always available to talk with us about our property or others.
Currently sales are much more complicated and difficult than all of us hope, but Margaret's help kept the sale on track and led to a successful solution.
I have purchased and sold homes on both coasts at least 11 different times and Margaret was my most professional realtor - ever. I would and will work with Margaret in the future and will recommend her work wholeheartedly and without reservation.
Margaret sold my Wilshire Park condominium beyond reproach. I recommend her to anyone in my situation.
I have worked with Margaret Lamberton for several months, searching for the perfect condominium in DC. I have very specific criteria, and Margaret has been superb at locating condos that meet them, while also showing me other options to help me refine my wishes. She is particularly astute about pricing, and is very good at analyzing comparables. On a more personal level, Margaret is a warm and sensible and it's a pleasure to spend an afternoon driving around to see properties with her.
Margaret Lamberton made this the smoothest and easiest real estate transaction you could imagine. I needed to sell a condo unit my parents had owned for years. An otherwise excellent tenant had left the unit a little worse for wear and the appliances were way out of date. Margaret gave me excellent advice on a few inexpensive repairs and improvements to make the property more attractive, put me in touch with a cooperative and efficient contractor and helped me set an appropriate price. As a result, we sold the property immediately, well within our acceptable price range. Work with Margaret and take her advice - you'll be glad you did.
Margaret is an excellent agent. She did a market survey and helped us make our decision on asking price. She conducted several open houses and always briefed us on the results. She coordinated the closing with little inconvenience on our part. I would definitely use her again if the opportunity arises.
My situation is different than most, in that I have never met Margaret face-to-face, but nonetheless can recommend her heartily. I live in MJ, and never felt I had the need to come to Washington to manage the sale of a Connecticut Ave. condo that had been in the family for 20 years and had recently become vacant.
The unit needed a good deal of work before being put on the market. Margaret handled all this deftly, and for a reasonable fee, I thought. And once we had a prospective buyer, a sometimes ticklish situation in the buyer's market, she kept things moving along at a good pace, and negotiated the final details in a way that I thought was fair to both parties.
This brief review would be incomplete without mentioning that Margaret was unfailingly prompt and pleasant in replying to any of my many phone call/emails. Should I ever have the need for real estate services in this area, there is no doubt about whom I would contact.
