Margaret C. Krause

Margaret is a southern girl at heart and was born in Spartanburg, South Carolina, and grew up in Durham, North Carolina. She attended C.E. Jordan High School in Durham and Deerfield Academy in Deerfield, Massachusetts. She moved back to Durham to attend Duke University and graduated with a B.A. in English and History and remains a huge Duke fan!

She loves spending time outdoors and moved to Lander, Wyoming, after graduating to work in the Development Office of the National Outdoor Leadership School. She then moved to Charlotte in 1996, and spent the next 10 years in the Telcom/IT industry working at Worldcom, Cable and Wireless, and DeltaCom as a Major Account Manager. After taking a brief time off, she decided to transition into the real estate industry and put her extensive sales experience to work. Margaret has always been passionate about people and homes so real estate was the perfect fit. She is a member of the Sheryl Hallow Team at HM Properties. 

Margaret lives in the Mammoth Oaks neighborhood in South Charlotte with her husband, Eric, and their son, Campbell, and daughter, Banks. In her spare time, she enjoys swimming, traveling, reading, music and camping.
