This month's Business Spotlight is Magnolia Realty! Get to know more about local real estate in the Q&A we had with Broker Associate, Stephanie Wilson!
How long has your business been in Argyle?
I began my career in real estate in 2012. During that 10 years I have been blessed to be able to do the majority of my business right here in Argyle. In March 2017 I helped to open the Magnolia Realty office in Argyle.
Why did you open your business in Argyle?
We chose to open a Magnolia Realty in Argyle in part because that is where many of us had chosen to live and raise our children. We love this town and these are the families we want to serve. We also knew that Argyle was poised for a lot of growth in the coming years.
What is your favorite part of living and/or working in Argyle?
When I am able to assist families with their move to Argyle, and then help them get plugged in to different programs in the community, see them at the Friday night football game, run into them at Kimzey’s – it is by far my favorite thing! I have been known to get teary-eyed at big functions like parent orientation at the beginning of the school year because I look around the room and see so many families that I had the honor of being able to help them find “home.” And now I get to see them on the other side, thriving in their new town, making friends, serving in the PTA, playing sports. I feel like I have the best job in the world.
What is one interesting fact about your business?
Over 4 years ago I started a Facebook page called The Argyle Insider that has grown to have over 3,500 followers in the local area. Every week I do a Real Estate Market Update for homes located in Argyle ISD to keep residents informed about what home values are doing in the area. I also do a video interview segment with local business owners, pastors, non-profit leaders, and more called “What’s the Deal Wednesday.” It has been so rewarding to help bring free exposure to local businesses while also being able to help market and gain more exposure for my local real estate listings.
