Margaret helped us find our house when we moved to Ithaca from overseas in 2001, and she helped us sell it in 2016. Both times it was a pleasure working with her. She is open, approachable, good-humored, and knowledgeable. She guided us through house prep process, devised a plan for public and private showings, and found a buyer within a month, at the price we had hoped for, while other houses in the neighborhood sat unsold.

Margaret went above and beyond to help us buy our first house, then years later, she helped us sell that house and buy our current house. We couldn't have been happier with the level of service and guidance Margaret provided. We've recommended her to our friends.

Margaret helped me sell my house in a tough market. I wanted to move but was not going to risk buying until I sold my house. She gave me great advice and had several open houses to help get the house sold. At the last open house I got the offer I was looking for and I was able to relocate. Thanks, Margaret!

I want to thank you for all your hard work, competence, and attention to detail in the marketing and sale of my house. It was a dificult period of time to be trying to sell a house and I appreciate that you were always so pleasant and up-beat and helpful. I am most grateful. I feel sure that the new owners will enjoy living in the house. I like to imagine them living there with their family.
We are so please to be able to recommend Margaret Hobbie as a real estate agent. Her experience, knowledge and wisdom are exemplified in her ability to sell our former property in Ellis Highlands and a 15-acre woodlot when there were no obvious buyers. Margaret figured out exactly the currect solutions and sold the land and the woodlot to the best possible buyers.
Throughout this process Margaret was the epitome of professionalism, thoughtful insight and courtesy. It is with sincere pleasure that we recommend Margaret.
