Whether you are buying or selling a home you want a full-time professional. Efficiency and reliability are just two of the many reasons why so many people rely on Margie for all their real estate needs. Vacation homes, new homes, condos, building lots and commercial property are her specialties.

Margie and her husband, Bill Franklin (also a Realtor) moved to the Lake of the Ozarks in 1994. Living on the lake’s waterfront is a dream come true. Entertaining their family (especially the grand kids) and friends, gives Margie a great understanding of your wants and needs of the Lake.
We have sold several properties through the years and Margie is the best. When we decided to sell our waterfront home, we stopped at Four Seasons Realty, after a Condo Realtor recommended her. She sold our home, over appraised value, in three days. When we decided to sell our condo we didn’t use her. After a year on the market, we called
Margie. Less than a week later “SOLD” at the asking price. We will never use anyone else.

Margie went above and beyond to help us find our forever home at Lake of the Ozarks. Coming from Chicago was a long trip back and forth so she previewed every single
listing we were interested in before making the trip down. We were very picky as to what we were looking for, so poor Margie had to deal with us for almost three years until finding the perfect one! We finally purchased in June of 2017. We would highly recommend Margie’s services to anyone and everyone looking for a home, she was extremely pleasant to work with, organized and gets the job done right!

My husband and I first met Margie in 2004 when we had some lakefront property in Sunrise Beach that we wanted to sell. Margie was always personable and was very knowledgeable. The property still had not been sold by summers’ end and we were ready to take it off the market but Margie encouraged us to keep it listed for a while longer. She said that many times builders look at property after their work slows down and they have time to look at property listings and that is exactly what happened and we sold the property for the price we wanted. Since we live in another state it took many trips to the Ozarks and some time before we found what we wanted but in 2007 we bought a beautiful home in Four Seasons. Whether you are selling or buying Margie gives 100%. My husband and I appreciate her helpfulness and expertise and we wouldn’t do business with anyone else. We value her friendship and highly recommend her for your real estate needs.

We both purchase and sold a property with the help of Margie Stafford-Franklin. I knew on both occasions we had chosen the best. She knows her market and found just what we were looking for. Right property, right price and no hassles. When we got ready to sell 12 years later there was only one person to call and that was Margie. If we return to the lake at some point she will be our Realtor. She is the best.
I’m writing to recognize and recommend the outstanding service, professionalism, and most importantly, the expertise of Margie Stafford-Franklin as a real estate professional. I have bought and sold property in several states and I have been most impressed with the service I received from Margie in selling my condo at the Lake of the Ozarks. Margie demonstrated excellent customer focus and service, excellent market knowledge, an amazing work ethic, and genuine personal professional integrity. I highly recommend Margie for your consideration as your real estate professional. She was always available to talk with me, e-mail me, and/or text message with me regarding anything related to the sale of my condo. Margie has earned my highest recommendation as a Realtor and as a result, I cannot recommend her highly enough.
Margie is the absolute best real estate professional at the !alee. She is knowledgeable, thorough, and efficient. She knows the market and she understands the desires of her clients. Lastly she follows through after the sale and never losses touch with the client.
Margie was fantastic. She had several condos lined up for me to see when we first visited her office, and she had the exact right fit for me. Anyone looking for property in the lake area should call Margie first!
Margie, you are amazing. I wouldn’t even consider using anyone else at the lake. I’ve bought twice and sold twice. You’ve walked me through the process step by step each time. And some of those steps have been very rocky!!! You are consistent in your efforts and make the process look easy. I will always recommend you to everyone I know. Thank you from the bottom of my heart!
We enjoyed working with you through the real estate deal we did several years ago, and also enjoyed staying connected ever since; be it guidance on a service issue or helping us move in our 700 lb Vegas Retired “Black Jack Table” into the condo, you’ve had an answer to every question / issue that’s come up. Your professionalism throughout the negotiating process, as well as everything in between was handled with care and consideration. Although we don’t have plans to sell anytime soon, once we do, we’ll be calling you. Hopefully you’ll still be in the business and will take as good of care with our selling needs, as you did when we were buyers.
