Hailing from the pioneering Baldwin family, which dates back to 1800s California, Margaux Gibson literally has real estate running in her blood. A historic preservationist and investor, she brings a wealth of knowledge to her work at The Agency RE Pasadena. “As one of the top real estate brokerages in the world, when you work with me at The Agency RE, you work with all of us,” she says. “We are a global family with the benefit of shared international resources, including cutting edge, in-house public relations and tech divisions."
Gibson counts her personal real estate transactions as some of her greatest career highlights, including the purchase of Singer Mansion, a former citrus ranch designed by Wallace Neff for Arthur K. Bourne, heir to the Singer sewing machine fortune, which she sold after a decade for over a $1 million profit in 2021. “Being a real estate investor has given me great insight into this business,” she says. “Timing is everything. Like the stock market or a game of poker, knowing when to hold or fold is important.”
A certified member of the Institute for Luxury Home Marketing, she’s also a passionate preservationist. “I understand the quality, details and beauty of craftsmanship,” she says. “On the flipside, I also understand the need for development, growth and progression. Sometimes, a new development can bring more value to a neighborhood. The key is knowing which is which.”
Gibson gives back to the local community by serving on the board of directors for organizations, including Foothill Unity Center, Glendora Education Foundation and the Los Angeles County Arboretum Foundation.”
