BUSINESS: Margo Waldrop Real Estate
The Kingston family was in a dilemma. After Mr. Kingston was transferred from his job in Iowa to a new position in Oklahoma, the family had a little over a month to move their entire lives to another state. Before packing up a lifetime’s worth of memories, they needed to find a new place to call home.
Margo Waldrop of Churchhill Brown and Associates was up for the challenge. Over the course of a month, Margo showed the couple close to 40 properties before they found their dream home. While the task was at times overwhelming for the Kingstons, it was all in a day’s work for Margo.
“I do it because I genuinely love it,” says Margo. She believes that real estate is more than luxury houses and big commissions. Margo may spend months showing clients prospective properties in Oklahoma City, Edmond, Moore and Norman, but through all the time and energy expended, what drives her is the satisfaction of helping families find their new homes.
Margo thrives for the moment when her clients—or friends as she calls them—fall in love with a new home. But, her favorite moment is when the deal is sealed. It’s those memorable minutes that she’s able to tell her new friends that their life-changing offer has been accepted. “My favorite thing is to be able to make the phone call to the buyers and sellers and tell them that we have a deal.” She enjoys hearing the immediate relief and excitement in her clients’ voices.
After showing the Kingstons numerous homes, she was confident that the love-at-first-sight moment would soon happen for the family of five. As the month flew by, they eventually fell head over heels in love with a new property. Margo not only handled the business transaction seamlessly, but offered the Kingstons a support system and experienced insight into the world of real estate. “I wanted to make sure that we didn’t just find them a house, I wanted to find them a community.”
Long after the offer was accepted and the closing agreements have been signed, Margo is still friends with the Kingstons. She not only offered them a house to call a home, but also a network of friends to call family.
