Margaret was raised in St. Louis, MO and moved to Michigan in 1997. Her husband is a
retired school teacher for the Grand Rapids Public School System. Their daughter
attended Forest Hills Northern and Western Michigan University before starting her
career in Washington DC. After working for Eastman Kodak Company for 26 years in
sales and Marketing Margaret decided to make a career change and has never looked
back! They have enjoyed their years in Michigan and really feel like Michiganders!
Margaret especially enjoys the Real Estate business. Having the opportunity to make a
dream come true for someone is a wonderful feeling. Whether it's that first new home, a larger home for the growing family or a downsize for the empty nester she enjoys the challenge and the search!
"In quick purchasing environment we purchased a home with Margaret that we were thrilled with. She walked us through a strong offer and our counter offer after inspections. We decided not to go with that home and Margaret was very patient with us. We never felt any pressure. And when we found our DREAM home - she made it a reality even though there were multiple offers. She had a game plan that we had never heard of and it
worked! Thanks again Margaret and we couldn't imagine being in any other home."
"Working with Margaret Hartline to find our house was a great pleasure; she was a complete joy to work with. My husband I were moving from Toronto, Ontario and we were particularly interested in finding a house near the heart of the city -- an area of the city that unfortunately had very few houses on the market at that time. Margaret took time to really understand our architectural preferences, design sensibilities, budget, and living space needs. She remained positive and upbeat,
kept a keen eye on the market, put the word out to other agents, stayed in close contact with us
over the many miles, and never pushed us into seeing a house or placing an offer on one we didn't feel 100% good about. If we left messages for her, she replied promptly and did whatever was necessary to answer our questions as quickly as possible. Moving from Canada we brought a unique set of challenges to finalizing the paperwork but Margaret made the whole process run smoothly and professionally as well as with a great sense of humor. My husband and I highly recommend Margaret; if we ever want to move again, she will be first to know." -Joyce
"My wife and I worked with Margaret over a period of three years to find the perfect Condo. There were times when we, out of frustration, were ready to put in an offer on a condo and Margaret gently reminded us of what our criteria really were. Margaret never wavered in her perseverance to find us the condo which most clearly fit our needs and wants. When she and we found it, things happened very quickly to complete the transaction, which was done in a sellers market. I have bought several homes in other cities and she is by far the best. Her integrity is beyond reproach. Happy Hunting!" - Gerry
