Margarita or Maggie Quiroz Acosta was born in Culiacan Sinaloa, in the northwest of Mexico. She studied Education at Escuela Normal de Sinaloa, graduating when she was only 18 years old. Her teaching career began at the State of Puebla, as a part of the Federal System of Secretaria de Educacion Publica. After two years, she returned to Sinaloa to continue teaching in a public school for the next 6 years.
Maggie married an American and spent time in the US, teaching in San Diego and San Francisco, but returned to her Mexican homeland in Guadalajara where she taught for another four years. Then the Rosevelt School drew her to Ajijic, where she knew this is the place where she wanted to live forever.
She and her husband bought a house at Lakeside through Lake Chapala Real Estate. They were so pleased with the service, that she decided she wanted to work as a real estate agent. She finally took the plunge and made her first sale within her first month and has had a successful career ever since!
