Get to know Margot

What is your idea of perfect happiness?
When I hear my children laughing happily while playing together!
What is your current state of mind?  
Eager and enthusiastic! I am trying to relish every moment of my children's childhood yet its impossible not to imagine how settled I will feel once my massive home renovation is complete and we are a well-oiled machine at Christies!.  
Which talent would you most like to have?
Reading people and understanding what they truly want - not what they say they want - but what they truly want, by listening and asking the right questions. Its like cracking a code. It helps me in all facets of my life not just in work, but with my children, the charity work I do, and with sports.  
What do you consider your greatest achievement?
Buying a condo when I was 24 years old, all on my own, in Harvard Square. Then buying a home in Ross with my husband when we were newly married. My achievements seem to come from real estate. big surprise! 
Where would you most like to live?
Santa Barbara, Paris, or Boston in the Summer.  Marin sort of encapsulates all of that... Well, maybe not the Paris part, but we can always go to Paris!
What is your most treasured possession?
Material possession? My new Porsche Cayenne. Sorry for the flex, but I am damn proud to have bought it.
What is your most marked characteristic?
My eyes! My whole life people have told me how huge my eyes are! non-physical, I would say my ability to talk to anyone, especially older people, even as a child, I was able to make friends with everyone and have something to talk about.  My mother has always told me I can build or mend any bridge. In a parallel universe I would have been an international mediator.
Who are your heroes in real life?
My mother of course! Is there any other answer? She raised my siblings and me without a husband, sending us to the best schools and giving us the best opportunities. She's my biggest supporter and most trusted ally. Next comes my sister... She's my rock!
What is your motto?
Tits to the wall!
