Maggie Chadwick is a born and bred native of St. Petersburg, whose family came to the Sunshine City when Alternate 19 / 66th Street was still a two-lane dirt road! After graduating from the St. Petersburg High School International Baccalaureate program, Maggie matriculated to the College of Charleston, where she earned a Business Degree in Arts Management. In addition to having the good fortune of being born in this wonderful city, Maggie was also born into a family steeped in a rich history of property management and real estate development/sales. From her first job as a young teenager working as a receptionist in a condominium sales center; to Property Manager of a 240-unit apartment complex; to a year’s stint working as a vacation rental specialist for the South Pinellas Beaches; to her current position as a Realtor® at NextHome Beach Time Realty, Maggie has been “in the business”.
Maggie utilizes her Arts Management education and skills to leverage extreme social media cachet in the marketing of her properties and herself.

As adept at virtual promotion, Maggie is equally prolific in the real world. Such are the benefits of being a local and cultivating a wonderful diversity of friends, colleagues and acquaintances. Maggie’s love of music and visual arts often leads her to a variety of events and venues. For those who know, the Tampa Bay Area is a treasure trove of burgeoning music, as well as a stage for the well-known players. She is never hesitant to talk about her love of her hometown.

Similarly she has straddled price points and geography from the mid-hundred thousands to million-dollar listings; from the sunshine of the beaches to shining in the Old Northeast neighborhoods! And of course, as a Realtor® with “Your Vacation Rental Experts”, Maggie has helped many satisfied customers realize their vacation rental property ambitions!
“I was new to the area and I had very specific parameters for the house I was looking for. I wanted a property with a mother-in-law suite for my parents to stay in but most properties in St. Pete had mother-in-laws that were made for renters that were not updated (No way Mom is staying in anything less than the Best). Maggie not only showed me around the awesomeness that is downtown St. Pete but she tirelessly searched for the perfect property. She sent a list of 10 properties and the first one on the list was ‘the’ house. Since Mom and Dad would be staying on the in-law suite we had multiple decision makers to please and all of us agreed, Maggie found us the perfect house.
