Testimonials


Diane Angulo Helped me sell a home

Margaret went above and beyond in a very difficult process of bringing the sale to conclusion. She never stopped with trying to get the job done. She did more for the buyer than their agent. She was tireless in her resolve to "get it done". I would recommend her to anyone seeking to buy or sell a home.


Penny Amundson Helped me sell a home

Margaret listed my home for me and was instrumental in finding the right buyer for it as well. She was honest with me from start to finish on what to list the house for, what I could expect to sell it for, and any other questions I had for her. She went above and beyond what a normal realtor would do for anyone. I traveled a lot during the selling process and she would help me by stopping by to make sure everything was okay before and after a showing. She was honest with the shortcomings of the home as well as the positive things about the home. Her market knowledge is second to none, she brings in qualified buyers, and is very professional throughout the entire process. Excellent service, I can't say enough great things about her!

Michael.fairbanks Helped me buy a home

When my wife and I bought this home, we had not been in the real estate market for 25+years. Margaret was very informative and patiently answered all our questions. More importantly, she offered the right advice and didn't let us get carried away with the emotion of buying a house. She listen to our goals and presented appropriate properties for us to choose from in a logical manner. As a result we felt confident with our decision to purchase our home. There were no surprises and no complications. We highly recommend Margaret for her professionalism and expertise.

Margaret first showed me a property she had listed, which I decided not to bid on. However, understanding what I was looking for, Margaret continued to email me possible properties, and showed great patience in digging up information and showing me a few properties before we found one that was the right choice. She then was very helpful in negotiating with the seller.

denisef5 Client, Seller

Margaret did a great job with the sale of my mom's house. My mom was living in an assisted living facility in the beginning of the process and Margaret went to her for all paperwork review. When she found a buyer my mom was in the hospital and Margaret went to the hospital for her signature. She went out of her way to make sure my mom understood everything and was comfortable with all decisions being made.

I would recommend Margaret to everyone!

PS - She ahd the house sold in 10 days!! Thanks Margaret for everything.

Elizabeth Albright Client, Buyer

I was fortunate enough to be referred to Margaret by a co-worker who new I was in the market to buy my first house. Margaret really listened to me and incorporated those details into her search of the market. Without being purshing, Margaret got me to look outside my original parameters which worked out because I found a great house I can afford. Working with Margaret was like a breath of fresh air and I would recommend her to anyone in the housing market.


bfoxxes3 Client, Seller

Margaret was there for me the whole time. She helped me through the process and kept me on track. I truly believe she is the best. I have used others before, but now, she is my choice for the future.


Rita Jablonski Family

I wish Margo had been my realtor, but I was outside her area. I relocated to Alabama this summer and obtained the services of a realtor. He seemed sharp and he had a team. Multiple issues arose: delayed settlement, buyer accessing the vacant property without permission, harassment from buyer's realtor. I felt like I had no one watching my back. Yes, Margo is my sister but she offered sound advice which I passed onto my realtor. She helped me figure out how to get the situation back on track. Margo even alerted me to one potential disaster; her warning prevented more problems. Margo, move to Centre County. No good realtors there.

Margaret Schickling navigated me through the sale of my childhood home in Fox Chase, PA. I heartily recommend working with her. She is intelligent, intuitive and patient. Margaret Schickling KNOWS her stuff. She does her homework, too. She is savvy on the buyer and seller side and is truly experienced, which is important as buying or selling a home is a major life event. She will advise you, educate you and help you anticipate and avoid pitfalls of every kind, has a network of colleagues and years of experience in her profession. And last but not least, she makes you feel like you are the only client in the world. I would work with her again in the blink of an eye.

jemini1978 Client, Buyer

Margaret is a great agent! She really knows what you want. She stays in contact with you everyday and sends you listings. She goes above and beyond to find what you are looking for and get you what you want.


Tom Camano Client, Buyer

Margaret has made several offers for us in our hunt for a home. She has advised and educated us in the complex process of buying a home. Thankyou Margaret for making it easy for our family.


"I have known Margaret for many years and have used her outstanding services with numerous transactions. Not only has Margaret been an asset to a great referral partner but she has represented me personally with a purchase of a home. Thank you Margaret for your outstanding work, I look forward to working with you each and every time! "


"Margaret has extensive knowledge of the market values of the area. She doesn't lead the "sellers" to believe that their house is worth more than the market dictates. Margaret is prompt in responding to all inquiries made even if those inquiries are not in direct relation to the listing. She is very helpful and goes above and beyond in her assistance."


"Worked with Margaret for a while as I was looking fornthe right home. We were able to find the right home that fit my needs and budget. The whole process from showings, to putting an offer in, to accepting, prepare for closing, then closing was seemless and not as stressful as I thought it would be. Margaret pays attention to detail and represents you from start to finish." "Margret went out of her way to ensure that we had total satisfaction in purchasing our home from her. she also was very intuitive and helping us get a proper mortgage papers and all the home inspections completed in a timely manner."


"Margaret did a great shop helping us to find our first home. We met Margaret at an open house and liked her right away. She was honest and knowledgable and was willing to put in the time and effort to find us a home. When we found our house she helped us through the paperwork and explained everything so we could understand it. And when the sellers realtor was being shady she got on the phone right away and rectified the situation. I would definitely recommend Margaret to any of our friends and family."


"Margaret Schickling is one of the most impressive Realtors I have encountered. She is very well versed in the market value of the area in which I was selling my home. She is clear in explaining the real estate transaction process and clearly outlining the details of the paperwork, which can be tedious. My questions and concerns were responded to promptly to ease my anxiety. This was extremely important because I lived out of state, thus I needed someone who was not only knowledgeable but responsible in marketing the home for sale. I truly believe that the home sold in a short period of time because of her expertise in real estate, marketing skills and her negotiating skills. My overall experience as stated earlier is nothing short of amazing. I will definitely recommend Margaret Schickling to any person interested in having their home sold or looking to purchase a home."


"Ms. Schickling is by far the most professional and best real estate agent I have worked with over my many years of various real estate experiences. As a former property manager for a large housing complex, I believe I have the ability to assess the professionalism of others in the property/real estate industry. Not only is Margaret extremely on point, knowledgable, and helpful, she is a charm to work with. She made the process of finding my dream home the easiest I have ever been involved with. I highly recommend Ms. Schickling for all of your real estate needs and services - you wont be disappointed."


"Margaret was a tremendous help with our search for the right house. She always had our best interests at heart and gave us great advice. She was very thorough in making sure the documents were correct before having us agree to sign. We highly recommend her!!"


"We have been working with Margaret for several months in a competitive market in our area. She has been more than responsive in setting up showings for houses quickly, hasn't gotten discouraged with our slightly picky criteria that are hard to find in one home and has actively located homes that may be good matches for us. Working with her has been a total pleasure and we never have any hesitation to contact her about any ideas and concerns."


"Margaret was patient and persistent first in looking for a property to meet a very specific need, and second in negotiating with very difficult seller. I reccommend her without reservation."


"I've worked with Margo in the past, having moved multiple times. Margo is the consummate professional and knows her stuff. This last time, I was out of her service area. I moved from State College PA to Birmingham, Alabama this past summer for an unexpected promotion. I listed with an agent who came highly recommended,Peter Chiarkas from KBB. I was impressed that he had a team and seemed to really know his stuff. The house sold in 60 days...at least, I thought it was going to. While Peter was on vacation, multple issues arose that involved Buyer's realtor and attorney. Peter's team was not helpful. I called Margo out of desperation (I was already in Alabama at this point) and she provided me with concrete directions for each issue, which I passed onto the team. Settlement was cancelled and rescheduled. Buyer's realtor insisted that I allow buyer into the house to "clean." House was immaculate and was professionally cleaned after I moved out. My realtor's "team" saw nothing wrong with me allowing access and encouraged it. Margo freaked out and after she outlined at least a dozen ways in which this decision could backfire on me, I refused. After my refusal, buyer was observed on my property daily, without my realtor's knowledge or permission--my neighbors called to let me know. Peter did not remove the lock box until I pressed the issue, and then waited 48 hours because he was busy. The house finally closed, but without Margo's constant counsel and help, this nightmare transaction would have been exponentially worse."


"Margaret Schickling sold a home in Fox Chase, PA for me and I truly enjoyed working with her. She is experienced, intelligent, intuitive and patient and will advise you and advocate for you as either a buyer or a seller. Margaret is a true professional and will help you navigate uncertainty by presenting you with concrete and useful research/ information. She is also honest, likeable and a masterful negotiator. What a combo! Whether buying or selling a property, you want Margaret Schickling in your corner."

”Margaret had our house sold in 3 days!! When my husband and I first decided to sell our home, we were very overwhelmed just thinking about potentially moving with a dog and two young kids. Margaret made the entire process seem effortless and always kept our minds at ease. While highly skilled in negotiating, Margaret is extremely detail orientated and does her due diligence to make sure her clients' needs are in her best interest. Her sense of humor kept things light in the times of high stress and she always made herself available when we would constantly text, call and email! We had such a positive experience working with Margaret!"


"My wife & I recently purchased our first home with the help of our realtor Margaret Schickling. What I really like about Margaret is her no nonsense approach. She's not selling anything that's not worth buying. Throughout the process we always felt she had our best interest at heart. Even when we thought for certain we'd found our home and she could've closed the deal right then and there she encouraged us to sleep on it. When we did settle it was a cold day in March. The sellers left 3 inches of snow on our soon to be new sidewalk. Don't you know - Margaret made their realtor send someone out to get that side walked shoveled before we signed the papers. I knew then and there she'd be our agent for as long as she'd have us."


"Margaret came to our rescue. We had our house on the market and we were feeling that we weren't being represented fully. Just as we took it off the market, she contacted us. We didn't know her but we immediately felt she was on our side. She dealt with a lot of frustrating moments with us with calm and knowledge. She helped us work through our tax appeal, went to the court house as well. We had an offer that we thought was going to work out, she was very concerned. She knew something wasn't right and was very persistent in getting all the I's dotted and the T's crossed. Her intuition was right on. We thought we had a house to buy, and again, something wasn't right, she felt it, and again, her intuition was right. She went up to bat for us on numerous occasions. Margaret always dealt with every situation with professionally and with tenacity. We were very fortunate to have Margaret as our selling agent."


"Margaret took us out looking for houses even when we weren't even close to being under contract. We just wanted to see what was available and be sure that we weren't missing out on our future home. Margaret is awesome. She made sure all our forms were signed and dated in a timely matter. Always was above board. She was honest and fair. We always felt confident that she was looking out for our best interests. With the purchase of our new home, she made sure that we understood everything we were undertaking. That we weren't just 'settling' for something. We are very happy with our home. She worked with us and she worked with the selling agent, fairly. Again, we were very fortunate that Margaret represented us."

"Margaret is who you want on your side as a buyer, no doubt about it! My husband and I looked at countless homes with Margaret and she never seemed frustrated or discouraging. She definitely had our best interest in mind. She is open to evaluate and bring forward all options and was willing to look at any house we asked (even if they were awful!). She made sure we knew what was out there and when it came down to the purchase she is a master in negotiating and also stands firm when things don't go as planned. After deciding on new construction, there were so many caveats my husband and I never thought of, and we appreciate her ideas and suggestions. I would definitely recommend Margaret to my closest friends!"
