About Margo Street
I’ve been a resident of the United States since 1974 and have lived in Olympia since 1978.
Born 6th of 13 children in Mexico, I grew up and learned to be responsible for decisions on the family farm at an early age. I became an apprentice, marketing wholesome farm grown foods including beef. I learned to make decisions at an early age, including selling and buying cattle at auctions as well as budgeting and the supervision of farm workers when my father was away. He was spending more and more time in the USA in the San Francisco Bay area.
My siblings emigrated to the USA over a period of years to join my father. I emigrated at age 17 and enrolled in Palo Alto Community College. I entered the working world after college, held 2 jobs which allowed me to save money to purchase my first home at 21-years age in San Bruno CA. A couple years later I sold my home and relocated to Olympia Washington in 1978.
In 1983 I married my husband, Christopher. We brought two fine sons into the world and since then I executed the purchase of five homes, the sale of four, and owned and operated my own business. This was a process I found I enjoyed.
As a result of that experience I decided to become a licensed Realtor in 2002 and four years later a managing broker. In 2006 I established a new Realty Executive franchise in Thurston County. Unfortunately, the devastation as the real estate bubble burst in 2008 swept this opportunity into the past. Never-the-less I have continued to practice Real Estate to the present.
My entrepreneurial spirit has always run strong. Over the past 20-years I purchased and strengthened a struggling private school in Tucson, AZ, and later started and owned several additional small businesses as well as the Realty Executives office. Except for the latter, each were successful and were sold as I took to new challenges.
My heart is solidly grounded in providing excellent service to my customers whom many reward me with repeat business and referrals. I look forward to continuing in this passion for years to come!
