Margaret Smith Ford is responsible for finding opportunities in the DC-metro area and Nashville, Tennessee. She is responsible for taking a project from beginning to end—sourcing sites, taking them through the entitlement process, working with the design team to develop a vision for the project and then with the general contractor to deliver it. Originally from Houston, Margaret formerly worked with Summit Properties in the DC and Philadelphia markets. She earned a Masters in Public Policy at the University of Texas and lives with her husband, John, in Chevy Chase. They have two children.

“Development is an incredibly challenging business that takes an extraordinary amount of persistence and hard work. It is an honor to be part of such a talented, professional and well-respected team as Woodfield.”
