Margo Wheeler

It is with profound sadness that we report the passing of the National Association of REALTORS® 2023 Vice President of Association Affairs, Margo Wheeler. Margo passed away Saturday morning after a courageous and hard-fought battle with cancer.

“Margo was the epitome of honor and service-the poster child of what a REALTOR® should be-and one of the most inspirational people I have ever known,” says the association’s 2023 President Kenny Parcell. “Anyone who knew Margo loved her. And her passion for our industry motivated us all to be better leaders and volunteers. I feel blessed to have known her, not only as my vice president, but as my friend. She will never be forgotten.”

A REALTOR® from Tacoma, Wash., Margo was a devoted and gracious volunteer leader, whose impact was felt at the state, local and national levels. She leaves behind a legacy of leadership that includes service to the Women’s Council of REALTORS®, the Residential Real Estate Council, the National Association of Real Estate Brokers, and the National Association of REALTORS®.

Margo was a proud mother, grandmother and great-grandmother and cherished her faith and family as the driving forces in her life. She lived by the principle of service and commitment to her fellow man. A retired drill sergeant, she transitioned from a 20-year career in the U.S. Army to a successful career in residential real estate where she assisted military buyers, first-time buyers and families in transition fulfill their dreams of becoming homeowners.

Her passion for uniting and empowering others led her to serve in various roles within the association, including National President of the Women’s Council of REALTORS® (2011); Housing Opportunity Committee Member (2015 and 2017); Diversity Committee Member (2014) and Liaison (2015); Fair Housing Discriminatory Effects Committee Member (2013); and Equal Opportunity-Cultural Diversity Committee Member (2000–2003), among other roles.

At the state level, Margo served as Washington REALTORS® President in 2017.

Guided by her devotion to mentorship and giving back, she also served as a multiyear member of the Leadership Academy Advisory Group, helping to identify and train future association leaders.

Margo became 2023 Vice President of Association Affairs just last November. She brought leadership, kindness, and commitment to the role — and the drive to elevate the voices of our more than 1.5 million REALTORS®.

The entire National Association REALTORS® family mourns the loss of our incredible leader. Margo’s legacy and impact will live on in our hearts, and within our association forever.
