Focused, cheerful, people-oriented and extremely competitive, Raquel Magro enjoys working as a real estate agent in the Valley so much that even after doing it for more than 20 years, it doesn’t seem like “work” to her. That’s great news for her clients because it doesn’t matter to Magro whether she puts in 10, 12, or 16 hours straight on a deal; it’s all fun, in her book. Anyone who loves a job that much is going to be pretty good at it. Magro certainly is – and her clients appreciate it. For sellers, she does things like provide moving boxes and tape so they can immediately pack superfluous items and leave the best in place. Magro can then stage the home to its best advantage. Magro spends quite a lot of money up-front when marketing a property, but it pays off for all concerned: most sell swiftly at top dollar. For buyers, Magro has agents who stay at their side until together they find the right home in the right neighborhood. Magro provides moving boxes as soon as the loan is approved, accompanies clients through escrow, and more. Buyers or sellers, Magro’s clients remain on her radar for life.
