Heather Tankersley


License Number: 661413

For the past 20 years, I have been actively involved in real estate from flipping homes to property management and rentals, and, of course, helping clients buy and sell their own homes. I have taught all throughout the country on strategies for buying, selling and marketing properties of all shapes and sizes in diverse markets. I am so excited to be a part of Magnolia Realty team because I have been essentially been purchasing and renovating fixer uppers, handling all of the staging, marketing and negotiations from day one. Through my own homes, I learned to make every property unique and how to identify features that are most appealing and to market around them. I have experienced the ups and downs of the economy first hand and was at ground zero during the housing collapse, so I’m well versed in handling all cycles in real estate and what unique circumstances come with each and am confident that I can help you and your family navigate through the ups and downs of your purchase or sale. My family is my pride and joy and making our house a home for our children to grow up in and build memories is my highest priority. I share this very same priority for my clients and customers because I believe that a house is more than four walls and a roof. It is where memories are made, stories are created and family and friends should be at the core of what we do. Through real estate, I’m able to help you find your next home so you can start the next chapter of your life or help you share the memories and stories in your home as a family.

Lee Wood

Broker Associate, GRI, SRS, PSA

License Number: 693180

I didn’t plan on becoming a real estate agent. After graduating from college with a degree in Construction Management, I went to work at my family’s construction company operating bulldozers and excavators, tracking invoices, and maintaining payroll. I then took on the challenge of developing a branding and marketing strategy for the business while overseeing multiple projects in an executive role. Heck, I even changed lightbulbs when needed! Little did I know that all of these combined experiences would uniquely prepare me for my role in real estate. I understand the importance of timelines and contracts, both of which are crucial in a real estate transaction. But buying a house and property is much more than numbers on paper. It is about my clients and what I can do to make their home-buying adventure awesome. My past experiences have only grown my desire to help individuals and families buy and sell their homes. I will help navigate the ever-changing, sometimes complicated real estate world. And if you ever need help changing a lightbulb, you know who to call.

Margaret Guzaldo



A native of the Hill Country, Margaret was raised in San Marcos, Texas, and has lived in Central Texas for most of her life. She lived in Houston for a few years, but after Hurricane Harvey the call to be “back home” near family and lifelong friends was undeniable. She moved with her family to Dripping Springs in 2018, and loves being back in the heart of Texas. There is nothing quite like the dark sky, sprinkled with stars, sweeping vistas and welcoming people of the Hill Country. She is the mother of 3 children, all adults now. After raising her family, and volunteering with her church and several lacrosse organizations she decided that her calling was now to help others find their home in this wonderful place.
