Full-time Realtor® specializing in mid-Peninsula single family and townhouse/condominium sales and purchases. A resident of Menlo Park since 1975 and an active agent since 1995.
What I Do for YOU:
My commitment to my buyers: to do what ever it takes to find the ideal home. I search the MLS, preview houses, work with other agents -- my commitment is to give you 100% effort until we find the perfect home at the right price. I like to work with buyers in different price ranges at the same time. I limit the number of buyers that I work with at a time so I can give the most service to those I have.
My commitment to my sellers: to get the highest price in the shortest amount of time, to use every means possible to widely market your property -- the internet, networking with other agents (Peninsula-wide), newspapers, open house. Negotiate for your best interests, facilitate the escrow period and ensure that the transaction comes to a successful close for you.
The bottom line for my buyers and my sellers: continuous communication and updates as to how we're doing and the progress and possibilities available to you.
Active listening is a key feature of my method of doing business. Your best interests are my first and top priority.
How I Do It:
I list and sell properties throughout the mid-Peninsula. I'm based in and live in Menlo Park, but have actively sold and listed homes in Palo Alto, Mountain View, Sunnyvale, Santa Clara, Redwood City, San Carlos, San Mateo, Burlingame, Foster City.
I work with first-time buyers and experienced buyers and sellers. Coming from a teaching background, I understand the principles of being prepared and being thorough. I am detail oriented, but also have a sense of humor!
What Past Clients Say:
Hey Marge - "...said much of what I am feeling as well. I want to thank you for your professionalism, kindness and sense of humor. You made this process pretty easy. If someone can do that in the Bay Area, to me it means they are the Best! (We enjoyed) ...Your integrity, honesty and relentless positive attitude. Thank you so much" - Joe
"...Disregarding the many hours of learning, the process was very painless! Thank you for making it so easy!...." Sarah
"...Very knowledgable, very patient, put the client's (our) interests first. Willing to spend a lot of time showing us many properties so that we became familiar with the different areas and what was available. No pressure to make a quick decision to buy...." Roberta
"For us, having someone familiar with our neighborhood (Menlo Oaks) was a huge plus. We also appreciated the access to outstanding vendors -- painter, appraisal, even movers. It was an amazing experience when it could have been drudgery. Thank you, Marge, for your personal, personable attention!
Quick attention to detail
Our home sold in one week ... pre-market! Robbie and Tony
"Marge Draper should be commended for her admirable talents in dealing with real estate needs. When I first approached Marge with the need to find ...property on short notice, I found her at once to be thorough and quick in addressing our needs. ...she has maintained contact with the listing agent and acted as a liaison to ensure accuracy in the contract language as well as completion of necessary cleaning ...I highly recommend Marge Draper..." Deedra
"Over the years, nine real estate agents on two coasts have represented me in real estate transactions. Marge Draper is the finest. No high-pressure tactics from Marge! Instead, a low key,straightforward and honest approach with impeccable attention to detail. Marge's primary focus is on her clients and understanding the nuances of what they are looking for. This, in combination with her outstanding knowledge of the market, makes her a winner. When I moved from East to West I found Marge. When I moved from West to East I wanted to take her with me as I again faced searching for real estate." Meredith
"JoeEtta and I would like to thank you for making our home-buying experience so wonderful. We both agree that we could not have picked a better agent for our needs. ...Thanks for the hard work and all of the extra effort to make this work for (us)..." Beau
"You were so detailed, and kept me in the loop at all times. ...so caring. So very detailed. She takes the "time"to make sure you understand each and every step. If you do not, she has the upmost patience and will explain it until you do. She was wonderful all the way." Lisa
