Real Estate the Woda Way

“The Woda Way” could probably best be described as the voice of 45 years of real estate experience in various roles: a REALTOR®, branch manager, broker, partner in a title company, trainer, Military Residential Specialist®, ASP® home stager, and consumer.

Over time, I’ve helped thousands of people achieve their real estate goals with strategies, tactics, and technology learned through a combination of experience and formal training. Clients also benefit from my extensive network with lenders, contractors, attorneys, and inspectors.

It’s a privilege to share with home sellers and buyers this experience, training, and network - to walk side by side with them into the next phase of their lives as their adviser and advocate. My clients know that I work tirelessly for them and disappointing them is simply not an option.


MARGARET WODA, Associate Broker

My family had just moved into our second new home in three years when I decided to leave teaching behind and become a REALTOR®. Anything I learned would surely come in handy for a military family that was subject to frequent relocation. The rest, as they say, is history. Real estate became the career of a lifetime.

My clients become friends, my friends become clients… and pretty soon there is no distinction. We share a love of the greater Crofton area, where neighbors gather for everything from youth sports and community recreation facilities to organizations for young, old, and in between.

My husband and I raised three children here in Crofton and now we have five grandchildren. They keep us busy, but we always have time to help new clients. Please contact me today, and experience “Real Estate the Woda Way” – whether you’re just exploring your options or you’re ready to begin your home sale or purchase today.

Lauren 08You probably won’t see me jump off any tall buildings or walk through fire, but isn’t it reassuring to know I’ve done that before? As a professional stunt woman, I faced many challenges head-on – and I’ll do exactly that to help you achieve your real estate goals.

When my husband and I started looking for our first home, it was love at first sight… love of the home buying and selling process! It was this experience that inspired me to become a REALTOR®.

Now it will be my privilege to help you navigate the real estate market, laws, customs, and paperwork for your home purchase or sale. Your goals will be my #1 priority at all times.  You can count on it!

JENN MORSON, Licensed Real Estate Assistant

Jenn Morson 2 Jacked Cropped 2013As a first-time home buyer, all the paperwork, inspections and deadlines made my head spin. Fortunately, we could rely on our agent, Margaret Woda, to be our trusted advisor and advocate.

A few months later, Margaret asked me to help digitize the records of former clients and implement strategies for transitioning to a more paperless business model for future clients. Who could have imagined this part-time job would ignite a passion in me for helping home buyers and sellers?

Now, as a licensed real estate assistant, I work behind the scenes to market our listings and process active case files. And, as a certified ASP® Stager, I provide complimentary staging consultations for our seller clients to help them prepare for putting their homes on the market.
