Margo Tapia

17 POSTS 1 COMMENTS
Margo is a proud native New Mexican. Ten years ago, she moved to beautiful Denver, then onto tropical Houston. But while she was away, her heart always remained in The Land of Enchantment. In 2018, the Tapia family made the trek home. Margo and her husband, Abran, are parents to Scarlett, Ezra, and Juliet. Margo is a self-proclaimed outdoorsy mom, who jokes that she has been hiking since before she could walk. She also enjoys running and exploring the state. When she isn't negotiating snacks with 3 children, she is negotiating the biggest purchase of someone's life as a Real Estate Broker. Her motto is, life is what you make it, so make it good.
