This is what some of Margot’s clients say:

Marcie Barrett buyer of Senior In-Home Care Services, Orange, CA

“Margot is a wonderful broker. She guided us through the process and made dealing with the business seller and seller’s broker actually bearable. She is knowledgeable, kind and I can’t begin to describe how much legwork she did for us. As first-time business buyers, we were frequently lost. She guided us through the process with class and humor.”


David Aeppli seller of Display Services, Santa Ana, CA

“I signed on with Margot on Tuesday.  She had two potential buyers for us to meet with on Saturday, one of whom made a full price offer on Monday.  I recommended her to one of my former clients, and she did the same thing for him.”
