About me

Life has taken me in many directions and fortunately, I have ended up in the Washington DC area working for a wonderful company, McEnearney Associates. After leaving Texas, moving to and living in England for over 20 years, I joined McEnearney Associates, moving to Alexandria in 2003. The move was quite an adjustment at first, but well worthwhile. Alexandria is a fantastic city. I enjoy being close to my family and the many benefits D. C. area has to offer.

Moving is stressful, whether within the same neighbourhood, to another city, state, or new country. My goal is to provide a first class service which takes the stress out of the transition. Every client has unique requirements creating unique situations and challenges. My knowledge of real estate and years of experience, enable me to fulfill my client’s expectations and satisfy their needs.

It brings me great pleasure when my clients write these things about working with me…

“Margaret’s knowledge of the Alexandria market and her network of support (mortgage bankers, insurance brokers, craftsmen) have been invaluable and I know from my conversations with Margaret and observing her with other clients that however special I may view myself, Margaret provides personalized attention to each of her clients from which I benefited. Enjoy your search for a new home, and enjoy making a new friend in Margaret.”

~T. Armstrong, Client

”Hiring Margaret Benghauser to be my realtor ranks right up there with is one of the best decisions I ever made. I was under a deadline to sell my property Margaret was responsive when I had questions, regardless of how mundane. She calmed my fears when I became anxious. When I became nervous, she became more patient. … I cannot say enough or adequately express how grateful I am for all her hard work on my behalf. Anyone selling or buying a property would be lucky to have Margaret working with them. Hiring her will be a decision you will never regret!”

~Cindy Conway, Client

“We were extremely impressed with Margaret’s efforts to find us the house we wanted at a price we could afford. She worked tirelessly to acquaint us with the area and patiently answered our endless questions. Once we decided what we were looking for, Margaret worked hard, and went beyond the MLS listings, to be sure that we got it. Throughout the process, Margaret was friendly, professional, and accessible, and she never pressured us to buy before we were ready or to spend more than we could afford.’’

~R. Sherman, Client

"Margaret was a dream come true. She went well beyond the call of duty, waiting in the rain for inspectors, coordinating repairs, and other necessary inconveniences. All while displaying professionalism, integrity, and a pleasant unwavering smile. We not only got a superior realtor, we now have a trusted friend."

~T. Mackie, Client

”I found Ms. Benghauser exceptionally competent, unusually patient, and, equally important, easy to work with -- the consummate real estate professional."

~J. Marston, Client
