This award is an honor. The biggest honor is that one of my clients nominated me. Customer service is the most important aspect of my business.

Margaret Ireland GRI, CRS, Samson Properties, is featured in a special section of the September issue of The Washington Post Magazine as a Five Star Real Estate Agent award winner.

Five Star Professional partnered with The Washington Post Magazine to identify and showcase an exclusive group of real estate agents who have demonstrated excellence in their field. Less than 1% of agents in the Washington, D.C.-area received this recognition.

“The concentration of my business is in the 55+ Active Adult Communities. Our service to these clients, buyers and sellers is and has been a fantastic experience. Many times their needs are different when moving, such as downsizing a home they have been in for many, many years. My partner and I have built a team to assist in every aspect of their purchase or their sale. These are different clientele, in their needs, time involved, and constant contact. This is now the most rewarding part of my business in my 32-plus years in real estate,” says Margaret Ireland GRI, CRS of Samson Properties.

The 2016 Five Star Real Estate Agent award winners have been carefully selected for their commitment to professional excellence and overall client satisfaction. The award is based on rigorous research with significant focus on customer feedback and providing quality services.

“This award is an honor. The biggest honor is that one of my clients nominated me. Customer service is the most important aspect of my business,” says Margaret. “Thank you to my Client(s) that nominated me. I'd love to know who you are. This is such an honor to be selected 2 years in a row.”

“Five Star Professional’s research is extensive, with more than 10 million consumers, peers and other stakeholders contacted each year. We are relentless in our efforts to identify those professionals with the utmost standard of excellence,” says Jonathan Wesser, Research Director, Five Star Professional.
