Meet the agents of Scott-Ogle Realty

Mark R. Wharton


It's a long story. Fortunately, every job I ever had taught me something important. Lesson upon lesson until I found something I truly loved and a way to implement all these skills.

I have a long history with Orme Hardware. My father-in-law hired me before I married his daughter 42 years ago. Working for Jack taught me about the importance of customer service. My brother-in-law, Dick McCoy excelled at knowing the needs of the customer. 

My wife and I ran our own business for about 18 years. I learned so much there; sweat equity, accountability, perserverance. Until I felt there was more out there and I wanted to get my MBA.

Cambridge Ford - I learned to stay calm and listen carefully as the Customer Resolution Manager.

And then I found real estate. Everything clicked. All those skills I had acquired over a lifetime of learning finally came together. I began working part-time for Dave Ogle. Quickly switched to full time and began working towards my broker's license. The oppurtunity arose to purchase the brokerage when Dave was considering slowing down and heading toward retirement. 

So, here I am. It took me a while to find my niche. But, I love real estate. 

My family and my church keep me on solid ground. Wife, Beth, two grown sons (and the exceptional women that married them) with kids of their own have my heart. I am a grandfather to Nicholas, Grant, Duncan & Sophia. It's true what they say about being a grandparent; it's awesome!

Mix in some volunteer time and my contiuned research on the Wright Brothers and there you have it!

My Story

After several attempts I've come to the conclusion that writing a bio about oneself is not very easy! What can I say that isn't read in most bios? I am a local girl, graduated from Meadowbrook High School, attended Muskingum Area Technical College (aka Zane State) and most recently graduated from Hondros business College. I hold my Ohio Real Estate License, an Associate Degree in Business, an Ohio Notary, and I am ordained in the State of Ohio to preform ceremonies. I belong to the Buffalo VFW, Kipling VFW, Cambridge Eagles, the EOAG Photo Club, and most recently joined the Byesville Rotary. I have been strongly involved with the Lore City Ladies and advocated for the dog park in the Village. In the past I have been on the Lore City Council and was the first woman Mayor of Lore City.

The real estate career seemed to be a no-brainer for me. My parents have been in the housing business since 1970's

(I hope that didn't just date me!) and I have seen all aspects of buying, renting and restoring real estate. I bring with me to this new chapter of my life 13 years of oil & gas title experience. I have worked for some big-name clients in the oil business. Running the history of a parcel of land has been challenging, unique, frustrating, interesting, and very rewarding.

I am a proud mama of two grown sons and an empty nester fur-mom of a 20 pound Schnauzer named Clifford. Iam usually the person that has a camera in my hand! This is a fun hobby that has granted me opportunity to share places and events with people.  It will also let me showcase the best features your of your home when I take a listing.

I enjoy my life and meeting new people and have a soft spot of wanting to help. I spent 10 years working at the Guernsey County Home and enjoyed all the residents and their families. The people there made work my second home. 

I would be honored to meet you and help with your next transition. 


I'm always looking for new and exciting opportunities.

Let's connect.

I moved to Guernsey County in February 2019 with my husband, Aaron.  Aaron graduated from Cambridge High School in 1989.  He felt a great draw to come back to this area and give back to a community that gave him so much.  I have met so many wonderful people and have been able to help a multitude already with their real estate needs in an honest and ethical manner.  

We have 3 children.  Ethan graduated from Ohio Dominican University in 2017.  He was married in July 2021.  His lovely wife, Haley, is a special needs teacher.  Ethan works for Premier Asphalt and Concrete  in Columbus and is an assistant basketball coach at Denison University.  Madeline graduated in 2020 with a degree in secondary math education.  She is currently working on her masters degree @ OU in clinical mental health counseling.  TraVon is a 2020 grad from Cambridge High School.  He is studying special education @ West Liberty University.  He plays football and runs track for the Hilltoppers!  We are very proud of all of them.

I love helping people with all their real estate needs.   I look forward to serving you!   I treat people the way I want to be treated; with honesty, respect and great communication.

Beth Wharton, Realtor

     If you're looking for the real McCoy...look no further! I am a real McCoy. Born and raised right here in Guernsey County. My family has long been associated with the hardware business. I grew up working with my Dad and three brothers in the hardware store. That's where I learned the most valuable lessons in life. Lessons of service to customers and community. Those lessons have never failed me.

     I think what I love most about my journey through the years, the stories. Connections to friends, family and yes, even strangers add such a richness to the dash between the dates. And now as a Real Estate Agent the stories are remarkable. I hear stories of sacrifice, determination, joy and sometimes sorrow.

    My experience has taken me down some unusual paths. Fiercely and passionately doing what I love at each turn. I have always enjoyed working with my husband. We make a good team. Between the two of us our skills have you covered. We worked together in the hardware business and we ran a corporate embroidery business for years. I taught driver's education. Boy that was fun! Loved working with the youth. Managed a hardware store in New Concord. What a great community. And now Real Estate. 

   I must admit, Real Estate was accidental. My husband had discovered it several years earlier and absolutely loved it. When my father passed away I was looking for something new, not necessarily another job! However, I followed Mark as support for all the behind the scenes work. I did the accounting, paperwork, photos, and staging. Fascinated by the quality and quantity of customer service, I earned my real estate license. I learned the business from the bottom up. 

     My personal life is full of great stories, too. Two wonderful sons. Two spectacular daughters-in-laws and four of the most delightful grandchildren you have ever seen!! And I still make time for one of my great passions, genealogy. I volunteer at the Guernsey County Genealogical Society and it fills my heart to help others discover the stories in their families.

     So if you're still looking for the real McCoy, give me a call. I want to hear your story.
