Maryland REALTOR serving home buyers and sellers in Annapolis, Bowie, Crofton, Davidsonville, Gambrills, Odenton, Fort Meade, and other nearby communities in the DC-Baltimore area.
MARGARET WODA, MARYLAND REALTOR
Who is Margaret Woda?
My family had just moved into our 2nd new home in three years when I decided to get a real estate license. Anything I learned would surely come in handy for a military family subject to frequent relocation. The rest, as they say, is history... Real estate became the career of a lifetime!
Since then, I've helped thousands of people buy, sell, or rent a home - as their real estate agent, the manager or broker of real estate offices where I was responsible for training and overseeing hundreds of real estate agents, and as a partner in a real estate title company. Putting my experience to work for relocating military families is still a labor of love.
There's nothing more rewarding to me than the opportunity to walk side by side with a family into the next phase of their lives. I consider it a privilege to share this milestone, and disappointing them is simply not an option.
Former clients have said they wanted a real estate advisor and advocate to bring experience and technology to their real estate transaction. They must be satisfied, because they keep coming back to me when their housing needs change.
Margaret Woda has become a household name in Anne Arundel County and Bowie real estate circles, after thirty+ years in this business. But you may be looking for something more tangible, some real qualifications that help differentiate one agent from another in this tough market - evidence that the agent you choose is tech-savvy, as well as experienced in real estate.
When it comes to technology, just check out my blogs here on ActiveRain and Localism, my website, my highly acclaimed community blog (FocusOnCrofton.com), online property fliers posted to several traditional and non-traditional real estate sites, market reports, real estate calculators and even my YouTube channel. You can communicate with me by cell phone, email, text message or video-conference. If a new innovation comes along, you can count on me to use it in my business.
South Atlantic Junior Golf Championship, Co-Chair*
Billy Goodall Benefit Golf Tournament, Chair*
The Catholic University of America Reunion Committee*
Married to Larry Woda, Captain, USN Retired
7 grandchildren, 4 children, and 3 daughters in law
Again, please note the activities marked with an * are past activities. I include them here because I firmly believe in this quote by Miriam Wolfe, a local resident who perished in Pan Am Flight 103 over Locherbie, Scotland:
This day is mine. It is unique. No one else in the world has one exactly like it. It is the sum of all my past experiences and and all my future potential.
Long & Foster is conveniently located in Crofton, Maryland - about a half hour from Baltimore to the north, Annapolis to the east, and Washington, D.C. to the west. I chose to work with this office for many of the same reasons that you might:
Home sellers and buyers experience individualized attention, superior professionalism and unparalleled resources at Long & Foster. Yet clients also benefit from the prominent online presence of LongandFoster.com and the market dominance of Long & Foster in Crofton and throughout the Middle Atlantic states.
I'm proud to be affiliated with a local market leader, and eager to show you how Long & Foster will make a difference in your next real estate transaction.
You won't find a lifestyle like this anywhere else in the world!
When you live in Anne Arundel County Maryland, you can play a round of golf in Crofton, go sailing on the Chesapeake Bay near Annapolis, and then attend a ballgame at Camden Yards in Baltimore or a concert at the Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C. - all in the same day!
Maryland home buyers, I will introduce you to the friendly suburban neighborhoods of Crofton, Bowie and Odenton, rural areas such as beautiful Davidsonville, and charming water-oriented communities near Annapolis and the Chesapeake Bay. I will help you explore your financing options and refer you to other real estate professionals including mortgage lenders, home inspectors, and closing attorneys. If you are in the "research stage" for your next home purchase, you may want to search the MLS at your own pace, request a complimentary Relocation Guide, or read the helpful articles in my Homebuyer Guide. When you are ready to make a move, I will be ready to help you.
Maryland home sellers will find easy access to recent home sale dataon my website, and information in my Homeseller Guide about pricing, preparing your home for showing, creating curb appeal, and marketing your home. Talk to me to find out how the "BRAC Factor" could impact your home sale. A successful home sale involves a lot more than just finding a buyer, and we will work together to achieve your real estate goals. If you are relocating to another area - across town, across country, or anywhere in the world - I will find a well-qualified agent for you at your destination.
Military and civilian transferees to Fort Meade, Andrews AFB, and the U.S. Naval Academyvalue my first-hand experience as a Naval Officer's wife. I've "been there, done that" when it comes to military moves, and I'm happy to help you with everything from buying a home to finding a local hairdresser or babysitter. You will find several links of special interest to military families in my Crofton Area Resource Guide. (NOTE: Personnel assigned to the Pentagon, Naval Station Anacostia, Marine Barracks, Walter Reed and other D.C.-Baltimore area military installations sometimes call Crofton home, too, since the commute is usually within 60 minutes.)
I have truly enjoyed the privilege of sharing this journey with my clients for many years - through buyers' markets and sellers' markets, inflation and recession, war and peace. Yet I am still passionate about being the best possible adviser and advocate for my clients, from start to finish.
Nothing would please me more than the opportunity to create a real estate success storyfor you now - whether you are a home buyer, seller or referring agent.
Crofton real estate is synonymous with your name, and I can't imagine working with any other agent. I looked at three homes with you and would have been happy with any of them. Then you negotiated a great price and terms for me. Thank you! Carolyn Emanuele
When people ask why I decided to get into real estate, I always tell them I was inspired by my agent. Thank you for being my agent, my mentor and my friend! Latana Garvey
You left no stone unturned to get us results when our previous agent failed, and you were so pleasant to work with. Thank you for the website and all the online marketing you did for our home. Bill and Jo Mafera
You are relentless, and I'm just glad you were on my side!Jim Morrissey
I was faced with a short-sale, and Margaret knew about a program that would save my credit and satisfy the lender. As a result, I was able to buy another home. Debbie Smalle
You helped us buy in a tough seller's market, and you got top dollar for our condo when we relocated. You're the best! Ben and Jan Bachmann
Margaret was so patient as I struggled with the decision to sell my home of 26 years. Then she sold it in just one day at full price. Betty Brooks
When my anxiety level reached a boiling point, you "stayed the course" and calmed my fears. Now I have so much to thank you for - selling my home quickly at full price so I could buy my next home, and helping me find a home for my Mom.Larkin Plato
As a RE/MAX agent myself, I had high expectations when we relocated to Maryland. You exceeded them, however, with your knowledge of things that were important to us such as commuting options and community amenities, as well as real estate. I'm so glad to have you for a friend, now that we're official Marylanders.
Kathy and Mac McKeeWe selected Margaret for her professionalism, thoroughness and honesty. We were not disappointed! We sold two homes and bought one with her help. Dan Stachurski
Without your help, we never could have accomplished so much in such a short time. We LOVE the house you found for. Kevin and Debbie Means
We found more than a new home and community; we found a new friend in you. We can't wait to have you over after we get settled in. Tim and Alice Spinner
Three other agents tried to sell our house. Only you had the knowledge to truly make it happen. We will always be grateful. Dan and Sue Plefka
When I refer my friends or relatives to Margaret, I can rely on her quick response, intimate knowledge of the area, and financing expertise to assure that their real estate dreams are achieved. Phylis Collins
