Jeff Magoteaux is the newest Realtor®® for Royal Shell Real Estate at Golden Ocala Golf & Equestrian Club, which as many of you may know comes with the duties of seamlessly negotiating transactions and managing the day-to-day operations leading up to a successful transaction at the closing table. But for this Realtor®®, focusing on residential and rural country properties at the horse-centric destination is a passion that stems from a childhood memory back in Jeff’s hometown.
More than meets the eye
As Jeff sat on his neighbor’s horse in Ohio at the tender age of eight, this feeling began to pour over him. Once it did, not only did it never leave, but he carried it with him all the way to Oklahoma following graduation. From there, Jeff opened a printing company and bought a 235-acre ranch, as well as adopted an equine lifestyle that remained his persona as he went on to win the All American Quarter Horse Congress and judge parts of the event for the next decade.
But his enthusiasm for everything equestrian did not stop there. Jeff competed in the Cheyenne Frontier rodeo, became a feature source for how-to articles in Western Horseman magazine, and transitioned into a roping and barreling clinician. This new role took his team to Nova Scotia, New York, Colorado, Texas and back to Oklahoma. Of course, this was before his horse industry advancements expanded into an executive director position for the National Reining Breeders Classic and a presidential niche for an association management company in — you guessed it — Oklahoma. The National Reined Cow Horse Association, otherwise known as the NRCHA, manages shows and the days leading up to them. This level of experience gave Jeff plenty of ideas when it came time to take on a publishing job for the organization’s newspaper, Stock Horse News.
And then, there is Ocala
It is no wonder that Jeff finally made his way to Ocala, where he is often spotted riding his horse on local trails and practicing his golf swing on our state-of-the-art course, giving him an invaluable advantage of the finest in luxury living and the incomparable “Horse Capital of the World,” as he likes to call it.
Jeff may have once been a part of the finest areas of the Midwest and the tranquility of the suburbs, but this crossover to beaches on both coastlines, unlimited outdoor sports and an excuse to go trotting after a productive sales day is certainly his idea of perfection. But if you do not see Jeff at the Golden Ocala sales center sometime soon, you may want to look to the sky, as he is probably putting his private pilot’s license to work. That’s right, there is never a dull moment for this Realtor®®! And if you want to learn more about how Jeff can keep you on your toes, give him a ring at (352) 369-6969.
