About Megan

As a Columbia Missouri native, I have a deep love for Missourian's and their neighborhoods. I approach both life and work with sincerity, honesty, and compassion. To me, there is nothing more rewarding than seeing a client fall in love with his or her new home. When it comes to experience, I have been helping people rent, buy, and sell homes in the Central Missouri area for the past few years now. With a background in business and communications, I have a thorough understanding of the local real estate market and know what it takes to grasp all my client's individual needs. With fresh and updated ideas and techniques, I am not just your standard every-day “Realtor”. This fresh look on real estate and deep local roots to central Missouri has shown great results for my clients. Whether you're buying and/or selling your home, looking for land, or wanting to build, I can help you price properties, land, negotiate deals, qualify buyers, acquire financing, find builders, contractors, and more! Though I am a Broker-Realtor by title, I am an entrepreneur by trade. Alongside my “Homes By Megan” real estate business, I am also an owner alongside my husband, of a prospering local charitable coffee roastery named Camacho Coffee. If I am not out showing houses, you can find me sitting on local charity boards and chamber committees to better understand our communities growth and needs from the inside-out!

What should you look for when interviewing a real estate agent in Columbia?
When you sell a house, your real estate agent becomes your business partner, financial advisor, and emotional support system. It’s crucial to partner with someone you trust, so make sure you’re looking for an agent who can answer all of your questions with confidence during the interview. During this process, you want to get to know the agent’s business and find out how well they know the area. You’re listening for things that signal experience, expertise in your community, and workload. Selling a home takes an enormous amount of work, so you need an agent who’s got a plan for prep, pricing, and marketing and who is ready to roll up their sleeves to get the job done.

When is the right time to hire a real estate agent in Columbia?
The best window to contact an agent to sell your home is anywhere from three to six months in advance of your list date. When you start the search for an agent several months before hitting the market, there’s plenty of time to find the best agent, make key renovations, and market your home effectively, all of which are essential steps in selling your home for a great price. You can also hire an agent based on the best time to sell in Columbia to take advantage of seasonal and cyclical trends in the market. The right time to hire a real estate agent depends on the temperature of the housing market. For example, the best time to sell in Columbia is in May. And since it takes around 3 months to close on a home, you should list in February. We recommend that you hire a real estate agent as soon as you're thinking of selling your home. Generally speaking, that's anywhere from 3 to 6 months prior to your desired move date.
