Dover’s Big Fish
Maggie Scarborough is happy to sell you a house, but what she really loves is selling people on her hometown. Scarborough, 29, grew up in Dover, Del. She left a teaching job for real estate primarily to play a more prominent role in the community. “It’s always been important to me, because I love Dover so much,” she says. Her enthusiasm extends to involvement in the Kent County Association of REALTORS®, where she has chaired its foundation’s scholarship committee since 2013 and now cochairs a golf fundraiser. At the state level, Scarborough serves on a task force advising on revisions to license regulations. She still finds time to coach girls’ soccer and help organize an annual American Heart Association fundraiser. Her impact was even noticed in the halls of the Delaware statehouse: In 2015, lawmakers honored her for her wide-ranging service.
