Megan Bengtson joined PJ Morgan Real Estate as the Residential Sales Director and REALTOR® in 2022. Megan’s contagious personality, tenacity, and drive are what make her a great leader. She founded The Apex Group and has been a force in the Omaha real estate market since getting her license in 2005.
She found her passion working in residential real estate while finishing her Communications Studies degree at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. She knew she wanted to help others, and real estate was the perfect avenue to do so. She genuinely loves what she does, and guiding buyers and sellers through the real estate process to move their story forward is her mission. Her foundation is built on strong communication skills with her clients, superior service, and building community through her expansive network with other professional realtors. It’s no wonder past clients continue to use her as their advisor and confidant as well as send her referrals.
Megan is incredibly driven, and it shows through the many accolades she has received throughout her real estate career. She has received her CRS designation which recognizes professional accomplishments in both experience and education. It is the highest credential awarded to residential sales agents, managers, and brokers. She also has her GRI designation. Obtaining this designation Megan made the commitment to provide a high level of professional service to clients by securing a strong educational foundation. Along with her long list of accomplishments, Megan is also the current President of the Omaha Area Board of REALTORS® (OABR).
Megan isn’t the only one involved in real estate in her family. Her husband Aaron owns a remodeling company, Highrock Design.Build.Remodel. They have two daughters, Emma and Cameran, and an adorable dog, Cooper. When she isn’t busy doing all things real estate, Megan loves hanging out with family and friends. In the summer she can be found by the lake enjoying the water and some wine!

We had a fantastic experience selling our house with Megan. We actually only met face-to-face once; we had to move cross-country before we were able to get our house on the market and Megan handled everything for us splendidly. Our house was under contract within 72 hours of listing with a backup offer.
Selling a house can be a very stressful process (having done so four times in the past seven years, we would know!) and doing so remotely even more so, but working with Megan eliminated a great deal of the usual stress. She contacted us regularly to keep us updated, always responding to our questions and concerns right away, and was proactive about dealing with the few issues that came up. She also stayed on top of all the annoying little intricacies and details involved in selling a house, meaning we never had to worry about any of them—which was invaluable with us so far away.
On top of being so professional and proactive, she is also friendly and engaging, making it a genuine pleasure to work with her. I would recommend Megan to anyone looking to buy or sell a house in the Omaha area—you will not regret it!
We were put in some tough situations with having a short timeline to find a house and close. Day of our close, Megan really stepped up to the plate by having us delay the closing as there was a very bad hail storm a few days prior and wanted to get everything checked out before we signed. That had to be a hard situation to be in as we had the pens in our hand when she stopped everything. She saved our butts by being on the ball. She was able to get two roof inspectors over to the house the same day and not stated there were anywhere from 6-10k in damages. Unfortunately, the seller’s insurance company adjuster could not make time to inspect the house until 13 days from the original closing day. Long story short Megan figured out a plan “B” if for some reason the adjuster stated they were not going to cover any of the damages. Stay tuned for the results of that as the adjuster appointment is in 9 days. All in all it was a crazy whirlwind of a closing day which turned out fine due to Megan being on the ball.
Megan is seriously the best! Selling a home can be so stressful, but Megan was there every step of the way, and helped reassure us when we had some bumps in the road.
She truly cares about her clients and even is so thoughtful to drop off gifts on the porch! If we were to need a realtor in the future, I’d definitely work with Megan again and would recommend her to all my family and friends!
There are no words enough to describe the amazing experience we had with Megan while selling our home and buying a new home. Megan is one of a kind, highly skilled, with a strong work ethic, personality, and level of care that goes above and beyond what we ever expected from an agent. On top of that, she surrounds herself and partners with equally equipped people that made our entire experience positive and absolutely stress free. We look forward to working with Megan for all our future real estate needs, she’s truly the best!
Megan is a true pro in every sense of the word. We got two full-price offers within 3 days of listing, and ultimately sold to one of those buyers shortly after. Megan guided us through every step of the process, talked us (me) off the ledge on more than one occasion, and made a very difficult task easy. She also helped my family through a very difficult sale of my parents’ home after we lost both of them a couple of years back. Megan gets my highest possible recommendation. If you’re even thinking of selling, contact her right now. She’s fantastic.
Megan came as a recommendation from our building agent. On our first meeting, she was very well prepared and was able to give us realistic expectations based on the current market. She was always available to answer any questions we had. The centralized showing service was easy to use and was super convenient for us to just text an answer for showing times. With her help, we had two offers on our house after one day of showing! She was able to walk us through each offer so that we knew exactly what we could expect. She really went to bat for us and made sure that we came out with the best offer possible. Throughout the sale, she was always available for questions and checked in with us weekly to make sure there wasn’t anything we needed. Overall, the sale of our home went better than we could have expected. We feel that this was due to Megan. We definitely recommend her to all our family and friends. If we would need to sell again, there is no question that we would choose Megan to be our realtor again.
From the beginning of our home buying process, Megan was very professional and knowledgeable. Megan was with us every step of the way and made the process and stress free and smooth as possible. She was always available and responded promptly. I wouldn’t use another agent and recommend her. She will make the process easy and fun! Her and her team have every part of the home selling/buying process covered!!
In our opinion, there is no other real estate agent we would use. Megan helped us sell our home in 2017 in Bennington. Our house was on the market for one day, we had 10 offers, and sold our house within 24 hours. Megan had her baby on the day that we closed on our house and still called to congratulate us. She is professional, trustworthy, knowledgeable, and respectful. All of the things you would want in a realtor. She became more than our realtor, she became a friend!
Megan was introduced to us by a third party, and we are ecstatic to have worked with her. Coming from out of town, she guided us to excellent neighborhoods, found homes that fit our criteria, and accommodated our short timeline. Megan and Alyson accompanied us through every step of the purchase process and made sure we knew what was happening all along the way. She was great and we are very happy with the outcome!
Megan was honest and very helpful! She told us what needed to be done in order to get our house on the market! She answered all our questions as well!!
Megan is fantastic. She’s helped us twice now with finding the right home to exceed our needs. Thank you for always working hard for us!
