License: DRE #01464329
A seasoned real estate broker with more than two decades of experience, Margaret joins The Agency following an 11-year stint in Southeast Asia where she worked as in-house counsel for an international investment company, while maintaining a private art curation service.

A veteran broker, attorney and interior designer, Margaret started her real estate career in the late 1990s in Beverly Hills buying, remodeling, designing, and selling her own properties. This personal business transformed into a consultancy in which Margaret advised high-profile clients in their real estate acquisition and sale strategies.

Margaret was born and raised in Westchester, New York. A chance meeting at the age of 16 with a Seventeen Magazine receptionist changed the trajectory of her life. Margaret started traveling the world, became a top model and graced the covers of Seventeen, Glamour, Mademoiselle, Bazaar and Vogue, to name a few. Margaret parlayed the exposure she received modeling into acting, moving to Los Angeles, joining the Screen Actors Guild and appearing in commercials, TV shows and movies. Always looking to grow and evolve, Margaret returned to school and graduated from Southwestern Law School where she earned her Juris Doctorate. Margaret remains licensed to practice law in California.

Margaret’s eclectic career and world travels inform her uniquely holistic approach to client care. This, along with her extensive market knowledge, networking prowess and experience negotiating are assets to all clients seeking stellar service and flawless execution in every transaction. Well-liked and respected among her peers for her warm, yet honest nature, Margaret is known for her helpful, responsive communication style, which further shows her genuine investment in her clients and their needs.

An art, design, architecture, literature and film enthusiast, Margaret values the South Bay’s vibrant social, cultural and historical diversity. A resident of Los Gatos, Margaret, along with her dog Birdy, enjoy exploring Northern California’s nature and cityscapes with her daughter, son-in-law and two grandchildren. Margaret is also a member of Los Gatos Library Book Club and Forrest Ave Book Club.
