“Peggy patiently worked with us over 9 months in a tough buyers’ market to help us find the home that suited us best in Pelham. She listened carefully and showed us only homes that fit our criteria. We really appreciated her diligence and pleasant demeanor. She was a pleasure to work with.” Theresa and Greg

Thank you (again) for your great help, not to mention your perseverance, in renting my home in Pelham. It goes without saying that you brought to the table your considerable and consistent skills- your unerring professionalism, your high character, your attention to detail—- but you brought me two sets of tenants who far exceeded my expectations………’ Gary

“It took only two visits with Peggy to figure out what types of homes would interest us and work for our family and budget.She was knowledgeable about every aspect of the community the schools,neighborhood & histories of the houses etc. Never once did we feel that Peggy was acting on behalf of anything other than our best interests. Throughout the buying process, she was professional,politely encouraging and supportive. In selling years later we had an equally pleasant and rewarding experience working with Peggy. She was organized and thorough impressing us with her professionalism, credibility and integrity necessary for a successful sale.’….Her skills are the best Pelham has to offer….”
Carolyn and Tim
