After 40 years of selling real estate one thing is for certain, buying and selling real estate can be a highly emotional experience. I consider helping my clients work through the process a position of honor and respect. I an a co-founder/owner of Schaffer & Company Realtors and have earned the Lifetime Member designation in the LAR Master’s Club for commitment to Integrity, Honesty, Fairness, and Professionalism. My personal life is dedicated to my family (married for over 33 years to the cutest bald-headed Greek, mama to our grown son and daughter.) I am a boxer dog lover, photography and gardening enthusiast and ongoing participant of group exercise classes at my gym. My profile picture was taken in my kitchen to represent one of my favorite places to be….HOME.
Below, I have included a few excerpts of referral letters from past clients:
“-I appreciate your extensive knowledge of real estate and I rely on you heavily when I am considering my real estate issues and needs.Your helpful advice on how to prepare our home for showing was greatly appreciated and your help with our purchase and sale of rental property has been equally appreciated.”
“Margo met us at the home and quickly figured out what our needs and interests were. She was extremely patient as we discussed the options of moving and the pros and cons of a move to the country. This was a big decision for us, and Margo understood and let us take our time… Suddenly our new home was reachable. This was nothing short of a miracle! Margo’s negotiation skills and her experience are simply amazing. The rest is history we are in our dream home thanks much to Margo’s skill in navigating our current home sale and the purchase of our new home…”

“Margo, I’ve owned about seven houses in my lifetime and this purchase with you as my agent was the absolute best!”
“My wife and I are Lodi transplants and we were novices regarding Real Estate in Lodi. We relied upon Margo’s extraordinary qualities and experience as a Realtor and were awarded with a home we love. We recommend her because she possesses the following qualities:
Honesty/Patience: Margo was very honest in her assessment of each property we visited. She remained cognizant of what we needed in a house and was not satisfied with a house unless it met the requirements we previously agreed upon. She worked very hard to find the house that fit our needs and did not pressure us at all during the process. She was very patient despite the fact that we took over six months to find and decide upon a house that was right for us.
Expert Opinion: Given Margo’s vast experience not only as a realtor but as a resident of Lodi, she knew what was a fit for our circumstances and what wasn’t. Her knowledge and awareness of the Lodi market is second to none and we were extremely comfortable in trusting her opinion on the neighborhood, layout, construction, and value of a house.
Availability: My wife and I work late and commute from Modesto and Davis respectively. As such we could only view houses in the evenings and weekends. Despite our schedules, Margo worked around our schedules to show us properties or to have a chat regarding our home search. She was also very quick to respond anytime we called or texted.
Caring Touch: Margo treated us like family. She clearly felt a large responsibility to find a home that we could love. That responsibility and thoughtfulness is extraordinary valuable as Margo truly was a partner who wanted the best for us.
For these reasons, we highly recommend Margo Cook as a Realtor. If you have any questions regarding Margo, we would be happy to speak with you.”
