When Margo Wheeler started her real estate career in 1993, she brought with her 20 years of military experience. Having advanced to the position of First Sergeant during that time, Wheeler knew full well what it means to take care of soldiers and their families. She also knew that she wanted her second career to be one that wasn’t restricted to certain hours, and where she should set and achieve her own financial goals.
“Real estate was ideal because I had a sphere of influence that included many military families,” says Wheeler. “When I went through the experience of purchasing my own home here, I knew real estate was something that I really wanted to do.”
A John L. Scott broker since 2016, Wheeler says the company has taken an active role in helping to support a more diverse, inclusive industry.

Scott Real estate is all about.”
