Testimonials for Peggy Hill
Larry & Janice Denny11/14/2013
We had our house with a different realtor first then switched to Peggy Hill because our daughter said people she knew couldn’t sell their house, then they switched to Peggy Hill and it sold. Well, we had more action in two weeks with Peggy Hill than we had in three months with the other realtor, we could see the professionalism we were missing with the other realtor. All Janice and I can say is thanks.
I'd be pleased to say a few words about working with Peggy, Terry and the whole team. From the first moment that Peggy swept into my home, she made me feel that the task of selling it would be a positive, enjoyable and completely stress-free experience, and I was not disappointed. This is saying a lot, because the sale of my house did not go smoothly, and selling a century+ home is never easy. My house has many unique features and many liabilities, but Peggy is so relentlessly positive that she makes it look easy.
Not only does Peggy establish a warm, friendly supportive and open "emotional" relationship with her clients, she is brimming with confidence, and I sensed immediately that selling my home was no longer my "problem", but was being handled expertly. She sprang into action and without making me feel pressured in any way, managed to guide me in editing my possessions so that the house would show to best advantage. The photos were spectacular, and the marketing was intensive - lots of ads and open houses.
What I liked best about working with Peggy was the communication and the spirited, positive atmosphere in virtually everyone I dealt with. Someone on the team was always available if I had any questions or concerns, and I was kept informed at every stage of the process. I would recommend Peggy without hesitation to anyone thinking of selling their home.

We couldn't be happier with our decision to use Peggy and her team for our real estate needs. Everyone we have dealt with has been warm and friendly and always professional and courteous. When you need someone, they are there right away and always willing to give whatever is needed. That's so important because buying and selling can be so stressful! Peggy's team enabled us to feel trust and comfort with the entire process from beginning to end. Thank-you to everyone for taking such good care of us!

As soon as we met Peggy we knew that we wanted her to sell our house. She was professional, energetic, and knew the area very well. Once the house was listed, it wasn’t long before they were coming to put a sold sign on our front lawn. The pictures and video really showed the house well and played a key part in the success of our listing. We appreciate everything Peggy and her team did for us!
We have moved a number of times and she is by far the best agent we have dealt with. I am used to having to tell agents what I want and what to do. This was certainly not the case with Peggy. She was amazing to deal with and had an offer on our house in less than a week, which was amazing! The whole team was great.
