Hello, I’m Margaret!
First let me say THANKS for taking the time to learn more about me. So let me share a little bit about myself and my journey to Real Estate.
I have been involved with real estate for decades. In fact I have lived in houses for all of my life - and I love them! Big ones, little ones, new ones and old ones; they have always been a fascination for me since I worked with my father in his real estate office during my early years. I even enjoy watching HGTV and sharing my passion for houses with other people. Now, I look forward to the opportunity to help share that passion with you – Serving Your Real Estate Needs With Excellence!
For over three decades I worked as a tax professional at the Board of Equalization and served in various capacities including a top adviser to Board of Equalization Members George Runner and Bill Leonard. I served many years in the Office of the Taxpayer Rights Advocate where I helped taxpayers assert their legal rights and resolve tax issues. In fact my reputation as a taxpayer-friendly problem solver resulted in landing me a position on Governor Schwarzenegger’s California Performance Review - a panel designed to help stream-line and consolidate California’s agencies.
I also have been actively involved with my community for years. During my younger days, I was involved with the Future Farmers of America (FFA) and 4-H with my agricultural and livestock activities. As an adult I have served in my local church in various capacities and responsibilities - children’s pastor, youth pastor, woman’s leader, teacher, and minister. I even ran for the Sacramento County Assessor in 2010 and am experienced working in the political arena at the local level. Other community experience includes developing the YMCA’s Youth and Government program, Chairing the Board’s Women’s Advisory Committee, working with the Board’s Education & Outreach Office to help taxpayers, and assisting in the creation of the Pro Bono Legal Assistance Program to help unrepresented taxpayers with legal help for pending tax appeals.
Oh by the way I do have some formal education. Besides my California Real Estate License, I have a Bachelor of Arts degree in Biblical Studies and an Associate degree in Business. I have been through numerous teaching and training programs throughout the years, and have received various certifications. In fact, I enjoy and believe in a lifestyle of learning!
Besides my passion for houses, my greatest love is for my relationship with God and my family! I am dedicated follower of my Lord Jesus Christ, a devoted wife, and a loving mother and grandmother. I enjoy music, reading, writing, and spending time with my loved ones.
Well there it is! I hope you have enjoyed getting to know me a little bit. I sincerely hope to get to know you better and serve you. May you be blessed and prosperous!
