The BEST word to describe Margarette is: AMAZING!!! We have been blessed to have her on our side now for buying and selling of two homes and would not have wanted anyone else but her!! She is very knowledgeable about the market and has excellent negotiating skills. What I really love about her is she is ALWAYS available and makes us feel like a priority whenever we had a question she answered it immediately and if she didn't know the answer immediately she would find out and advise us. Thank you again Margarette we LOVE YOU!!!!!!

We have had the pleasure now to have Margarette help us with selling our home and helping us purchase our new home. She is absolutely, hands down, the BEST!! She is extremely knowledgeable about the market. We experienced a few bumps in our process and she handled ALL of them and always took care of everything. I can honestly say that if it was not for her we would have not gotten our home, she is a lifesaver and she was always available at ANY time! Thanks again Margarette, you are the BEST!!

Margarette, went above and beyond to meet all of our expectations. She always kept in touch with us and was always available when we needed her.

Margarette spent many hours with us "looking for that special home". We kept apologizing for dragging her out in the rain and in the evening. She would respond by letting us know it was all part of the business. She was very accommodating and worked her schedule into ours. After viewing many homes and not finding a home she told us "When you find the right home, you will just know!" She was right! We now have our own home and love it!

Margarette was fantastic to work with from the start to finish, when we asked hard questions she had the answers. She worked really great with our lender and from the time we made our offer and to the seller accepting we were able to close and have the keys to our new home in less than one month! If you want results this is who you need to be talking with!

I never reviewed a home with Margarette. I sent her an email letting her know that I was interested in viewing a specific home and to please contact me but she never responded back to me by email or be phone, let alone show me the house at all that I was interested in.

Thankyou for the review, I maybe had a wrong number but left a message several times. The voicemail went to a beep so not sure but thought I had the right person. Please call me when you can.

Margarette was a pleasure to work with. She kept close contact with the loan company and kept me informed at every stage of the process. She also found a great house for my daughter and I in a great neighborhood. I would tell anyone that is looking to buy a house to deal with her. Margarette is a caring person that was concerned with my families needs and felt confident with her ability to negotiate a fair deal. I feel I not only found a great agent but a new friend as well. Thank you Kristine Mayers

Margarette stuck by us through everything it took to get us into this house.. We appreciate it so much! Without her we wouldn't have had a lender because she recomended them to us.

Eventhough, we are very busy with our own schedule, Margarette set up to see a lot of houses. She will never say no when you give her a short notice to get app.

Margarette was great. I think we looked at 30 or more houses over the course of 2 months. She never made us feel like we were wasting her time and was always available for questions. Unfortunately, when we finally found the house we wanted Margarette had to deal with a Windermere agent that was insulting to her and Zip Realty. She showed a great deal of integrity by standing up to this person for herself and her company. She is proud of her company and confident. That made us very comfortable with her. When the deal closed she went above and beyond by taking responsibility for contract items the seller failed to complete. We are completely satisfied with Margarette's very hard work.

Ms. Hayes exceeded our expectations in every way. She worked tirelessly to locate suitable homes that met our requirements, and once the final home was chosen, she worked with the seller's agent, lender and escrow firm to ensure that we were able to purchase the house of our dreams. Her cheerful and professional demeanour reflected favourably on both herself and Zip Realty.

We were very exact in our wishes for a house and Margarette was able to find homes that fit our criteria. When something wasn't right for us, she would point out to us what probably wouldn't work for us but was willing to show the home anyway. She was always cheerful and helpful and we had good communication. I have recommended her to friends and will continue to do so.

Margarette was the best, she not only met my expectations of an agent she exceeded them. The information and help provided by Margarette was invaluable to mysely and family. With her help and research finding the right house for our family was as easy as it gets. If I ever need to purchase a house again I hope Margarette will be there to help again. Thank You So Much The Bonifacio's

During escrow their was horrible communication between all parties and a large amount of confusion working with FHA. As a customer paying thousands of dollars (thru commission) I would expect more knowledge and assistance from professionals. Margarette was very kind and helpful selecting homes, there was just information missing.

This is a wonderful client but our Loan Officer failed and it all rolls downhill. Note: I changed finance companies!!

I don't think our agent could have done anything about the situation but we were dissatisfied that the work that was supposed to be completed was not completed as agreed and we were stuck with a bill for dumping all the trash that was left behind. When we questioned this we were told take it or leave it and that is the way it goes. The next time we buy a property we will tell everyone to take a hike unless contract terms are meet and I am not %100 positive it will be through Zip Realty.

This was a sad situation after finding their dream home, the seller basically packed up and left not completing the contract work orders. This listing agent & I did the best to get it done but the seller basically said we are done.

My husband and I started looking at real estate online 18 months or so before Margarette Hayes and I ever met (in person). Even though we took a long time before actually being "ready" to take the plunge - she hung in there with me (online) - and I had many questions!!! 3 or 4 months could pass by where we did not communicate - and then when I had a question she was right there (online)to answer it. She never made me feel like a "bother" or a "looky loo" - or someone not serious about buying. She NEVER PUSHED. She would drop me a line on a holiday or just say "hello" but never ever put pressure on me!! The fact that she hung in there really impressed us!! When the timing was right - we met - found the perfect home (we only looked at a handfull of houses)- put in an offer - and within 30 days we were moving in to our NEW HOME!! It was literally THAT FAST!! She displays dignity and class and a sense of professionalism that I don't see often in the business world. She is knowledgeable but not a "know it all", she was never late for an appointment, she always kept her word and most important - if she did not have the answer to something - she would not try to "fake it". She would say "I don't know but I will find out and get back to you". And she always did. I would recommend Margarette Hayes to anyone that is looking to purchase a home or sell a home. It has been well over 20 years since I purchased my last home and many things have changed. She made the process easy and painless. Sincerely, Lisa Larkin Sewell and Cornelius Sewell

Margarette was great to work with. She showed us many properties without any pressure, and made the process extremely enjoyable. She also was always available and followed through on everything before and after the sale. I will certainly recommend her to everyone I can.

Margarette was great. While not first time buyers it is the first time we have bought since 1989. Many things have changed since then. We came from out of state and the seller was out of the country which produced some "logistics" difficulties but our agent handled them all. She pointed us to a loan rep and we were able to do our looking for property knowing that we had loan pre approval prior to purchase. I have recommended ZipRealty to others and have recommended Margarette to people looking in the Seattle area.
