Margaret moved from a nursing background into real estate by initially selling rest homes. That was over 27 years ago, and the start of an enjoyable real estate career.
Since then she has changed her specialist area and gathered a wealth of experience along the way, both as a Branch Manager and as a very successful salesperson. Her focus now is on homes and townhouses in Ponsonby, Freemans Bay, Grey Lynn, Herne Bay and St Marys Bay, which she promotes with a passion.
Margaret is very aware that selling and buying a house can be an upsetting or stressful experience for many people. She knows that each person (whether seller or buyer) and each home is quite unique and this requires a very personal approach. Therefore, Margaret always endeavours to harmoise the process using integrity, respect and kindness.
People deal with people on a repeat basis only if there is an abundance of ttrust and satisfaction. Delighted clients refer most of Margaret's business to her.
I thoroughly recommend her services to you.
Barfoot & Thompson Ltd, Ponsonby
"There are Agents who sell and Agents who excel in selling. Margaret Jackson from Barfoot & Thompson's Ponsonby will achieve both of these objectives on your behalf and then some.
From the moment Margaret accepted our commission to market our property, she worked like a Trojan to produce a fantastic end result. Margaret kept us fully informed throughout the whole process. Margaret is a friendly, caring, honest, upfront professional who treats you with the utmost respect, at a time when selling ones most valuable asset can be very stressful. Margaret is always willing to share with you her profound knowledge of real estate and always has your best interest at heart. As long as you listen to her and do everything she tells you to do, she will achieve everything over and above ones expectations.
The nay sayers, and I was one of them, would say, "Real Estate Agents, money for jam". So in my wisdom I decided to sell privately, because the market was so buoyant. In the first week, we got a really great, cash unconditional offer, which we turned down. Halfway into week 2, I realised it wasn't working. I'm not anti-selling privately, it obviously works for some people, and the advice I received was really great. It just made me realise one needs a professional Agent and Lawyer on hand to help navigate the pitfalls that pop up, unexpectedly. That is why we contacted Margaret Jackson, she was the only Agent we wanted to sell our property and without her assistance and advice every step of the way, we truly believe we would never have got the fantastic result we did.
If you are looking for an honest, professional, caring, down to earth Agent (one who brings her own lawnmower and mows your berm, before your first Open Home), put your faith in Margaret Jackson, you will not be disappointed, we cannot recommend her highly enough.
Thank you Margaret, you have made it possible for us to realise our dream, to enable us to embark on our next adventure in our life's journey."
"I would like to recommend Margaret Jackson of Barfoot & Thompson Ponsonby.
Margaret recently acted as my real estate salesperson for the sale of my Ponsonby villa and I was delighted with her service.
Margaret is well informed and knowledgeable about the market and all the aspects of real estate. She was diligent and reliable, worked extremely hard, and reported back to me in detail after each open home.
Most importantly, Margaret was enthusiastic about the property. Her advice in preparing it for the sale, and her positive feedback during the sale process, was invaluable.
I greatly appreciate all Margaret did for me.
The property sold for a higher price than I expected and I am a very happy customer."
“Margaret has shown a high level of persistence and determination in promoting and showing my Parnell house. It’s these qualities that make a good salesperson.”GC, Parnell, Auckland
“She brings a pleasant personality to her task and there is an agreeable lack of pressure yet always a high level of competence in the way in which she deals with the transaction. Perhaps the highest recommendation that we can give to Ms Jackson is to say that it is our intention to engage her services in the future in all cases where we have real estate that has to be sold.”JCC, Solicitor, Auckland
