Margaret Thoenen has been active in real estate and community development for over 50 years. She and her husband, Lawrence, started Lawrence Thoenen Homebuilders in 1965. As a team, they worked hard to build affordable, high quality family housing for many families in Jefferson City and surrounding areas.

In 1984, Margaret began the next chapter in real estate as a Broker Salesperson with Action Realty. As Jefferson City continued to grow, so did Margaret’s list of treasured clients and friends. To this day, she enjoys working with the children (and sometimes grandchildren!) of clients she served many years ago.

Margaret has seen it all; high interests rates in the 1980s, real estate recession in 2008, and lowest interests rates in early 2010s! Her commitment to education has not wavered. She has earned the GRI (Graduate Realtor Institute) and CRS (Certified Residential Specialist) designations, and continues to stay abreast of the new developments in the real estate industry to ensure her clients receive top-notch service through any transaction.

In addition to her real estate business, Margaret still serves as President of Lawrence Thoenen Homebuilders. She is an active member in many organizations; Jefferson City Area Board of REALTORS®, Missouri Association of REALTORS®, National Association of REALTORS®, Mid-Missouri Apartment Association, National Homebuilders Association, Home Builders Association of Central Missouri, and Jefferson City Chamber of Commerce. She is a member of St. Joseph Cathedral in Jefferson City.

We rented from Action and we loved how good they were as landlords. We feel like Margaret & Blake are family. We were very impressed and would not change anything about the experience. We give them a score of 10!

I selected Action, and Margaret and Blake, because I lived in the St. Martins area. They were very convenient, and always available for questions and quick to respond. I give them a 10 for service and would recommend my friends and family.

We chose Margaret & Blake due to their experience and friendliness over the phone. We had 2 different popular realtors in JC, who did not seem to be as positive and motivated as Ms. Margaret & Blake. They were so helpful & Knowledgeable about the selling of our home. They listened to us and answered all of our questions, worked real hard to make us happy. Kept us in the 100p! The house was shown more in 3 weeks than the other realtors showed it in 3 months. I give them a 10!

Action Realty helped me when I purchased my new home, so that is who I thought of first when I decided to sell the old one. Over all they were very professional, very friendly and helpful, and very knowledgeable about details. I felt I was in good capable hands during the entire time. I can’t imagine how they could do anything better! I give them a 10!
