One of the area’s newest real estate professionals is working in Nevada City, just a few blocks from her old stomping grounds.
Megan Clock-Doyle grew up in Nevada City, climbing its trees and swimming in its river. It was an idealistic place to grow up, which is exactly why she came back. Leaving town at the age of 19, Megan has lived in places like Minneapolis, San Francisco and most recently Santa Cruz, where she spent the last 11 years working as a make-up artist and manager of a large cosmetics company in Capitola, CA. But Nevada City never left her heart or mind, and after having her second child, she decided it was time to come home. “I wanted to raise my kids in the community that raised me. Growing up here was such a special experience and I wanted my kids to have that as well. Santa Cruz is a beautiful place…but Nevada City is home”.
Megan spent most of her young days on Broad Street in her dad’s business, Broad St. Furnishings, which he owned for over 30 years. It was her mother however, that brought her into the world of real estate. Laurie McIntosh has been an agent in Nevada City for the past 23 years, and although the two plan to partner on some things, Megan is coming into the business as an independent agent. She chose Network Real Estate for many reasons, but mostly because of its “hometown feel”. “I chose Network because I feel that they are really invested in their people and the community. They are a large established company, but I was also really attracted to the fact that they still had a very small town/small business feel, not corporate at all. I think that’s important in this business, you want to be represented by an actual caring, invested person…not just a corporate brand.”
Megan is dedicated to helping people find their perfect piece of Nevada County, whether it’s a home, business or raw land; she is committed to finding the right fit for each of her clients. “My entire previous career was about helping people find what they want. Making people happy and helping them feel confident about their choices is what I like to do. One of my old managers used to tell me that I have a servant’s heart, and I guess that I do because I’m not interested in doing anything in my life that doesn’t involve helping others and making them feel good. It’s what makes me happy.”
You can find Megan at her Network office at the top of Broad Street in Nevada City. She is looking forward to learning this industry from her mother, who is now also her mentor, and working with and meeting the wonderful people of this unique, beautiful little town.
“It’s good to be home”.
