Ayesha & Matt Diedrick (January, 2018)“Working with Peggy to find our new home was a pleasure for my husband and me. Peggy listened attentively to what we were looking for and also took the time to get to know us as a couple; choosing homes for us to visit that fit our budget and our lifestyle.“Whenever we heard from Peggy, we got excited, because we knew she had done her homework and had made a thoughtful decision that was guaranteed to peak our interests.“Peggy also only recommended homes she herself would consider buying, which further added to our sense of comfort with her, and confidence in our decisions.“Not only did Peggy work hard to find our home, but once found, she was equally diligent about ensuring that we had the right resources at our disposal to ensure that everything about the sale was completed in a professional manner and in a timely fashion.“Peggy is also a ‘straight-shooter’; a trait that is invaluable when dealing with real estate transactions. Overall, we would recommend Peggy without hesitation for anyone looking to buy or sell a home. She is a committed agent, who works tirelessly to ensure that her clients are satisfied and find their dream home. Thank you Peggy!!”
Mike Mitchell & Carolina Ayala (November, 2017)
“Thank you very much Peggy, it was a real pleasure working with you! I’m in the military and I’ve bought and sold more than a few houses, and I can honestly say that I have never worked with a real estate agent quite like Peggy before; hard to imagine saying this, and this is a first… it was fun!
“Peggy went above and beyond, took charge, told us exactly what we needed to do for a quick sale, and even went shopping for a few little things that put the finishing touches on a beautifully staged home. As a result our home sold quickly for top dollar without conditions.
“It would be our pleasure to recommend Peggy to anyone selling their home. Very happy customers.”
Brian Moores & Viola Wedge-Moores (October, 2017)
“We so appreciated having Peggy as our selling agent! She came to view the property armed with a keen sense of what had to be done to make it more attractive to buyers and provided sound advice about the selling price. She took time to review the agent-seller contract in detail with us and was very responsive to our queries throughout the process.
“She was highly active in preparing the house for sale and her staging was masterful, transforming an empty house into one which buyers could readily see the potential for making it their home. We were impressed with her communication as each development, e.g., showing, feedback, etc., was made known to us immediately. We wanted a quick sale and, success: the house sold within 5 days!!
“We have already recommended Peggy to a family member and do so to anyone looking for an agent passionate about her work and one who keeps her client’s best interests at the forefront. Thanks so much, Peggy, well done!”
Laura DeLuca (September, 2017)
“It has been an absolute pleasure working with Peggy, I can’t thank her enough for her diligent work in helping me find and purchase my first condo. From the very start, Peggy took the time to explain all aspects of the home buying process along with answering any and all questions I had.
“Her honesty and outstanding knowledge gave me the confidence to know I was making the right decision. I couldn’t be happier, Peggy truly looks out for her client’s best interests and it shows!
“Her professional and upbeat personality helped pave the way for a wonderful home buying experience. I’d highly recommend Peggy for anyone looking to purchase their new home. Thank you again, Peggy!”
Hang Nguyen & Mark Kuske (September, 2017)
“Peggy’s patience and keen eye was extremely valuable during our search and purchase. She was very hands on when it came to getting our house ready and staged to sell. Our house sold in 19 days! Thank you for everything! “
Dilia Ayala-Mayost & Gilles Mayost (August, 2017)
“We recently purchased an investment property in Mckellar Heights. Our agent, Peggy Blair, was instrumental in this acquisition, guiding us through every step of the process: Initial offer, the counter offer and the final purchase agreement.
“She has an excellent network of tradespeople we relied on to inspect the house and ensure that everything was up to par before we put up the unit for rent. Peggy staged the house and secured solid tenants within a week of closing – a record time!
“At all times, we felt we were in good hands and that Peggy had our interests at heart.
“Her knowledge of the industry, her professionalism and more importantly ,her unwavering sense of ethics greatly reduced our stress as first time investors.
“We consider ourselves very fortunate indeed to have had Peggy as our agent .”
Heather Richardson, TD Canada Trust (June, 2017)
“I greatly enjoy working with Peggy Blair whose creative resourcefulness in staging a property for sale on a cost effective basis has yielded some fantastic results.
“The combination of her professionalism and her knowledge gives me great peace of mind that she is actively engaged in working in my best interest when selling a property.”
Cheryl Rogers (May, 2017)
“Peggy helped me find and buy my first condominium. It was a new build and I found the whole process a bit intimidating. So much paperwork, so many options!
“She went through all the details, walked through the unit with me to highlight areas of interest or concern, introduced me to a wonderful real estate lawyer and summarized the deal with the selling agent and myself.
“She even helped with the design options and offered great advice on how to think about resale value when choosing items. She was so organized and efficient, I trusted her opinion completely and wound up with the best place for the best price.
“I would highly recommend Peggy to anyone looking for a bright, energetic agent who will look out for her client’s best interest.”
Tim Fairgrieve & Jane Harper (April, 2017)
“Peggy is fantastic. Our family of five was moving from Vancouver to Ottawa: a new city where we didn’t know the neighbourhoods, schools, or the housing market. We were rescued by Peggy’s deep knowledge of the city, her attention to detail, her keen sense of the market, and her amazing energy.
“Ask her about a listing and she will personally view it and tell you everything you need to know. Email her a question late at night and you will have answers waiting in the morning.
“In just a few weeks with Peggy’s help we found a great house in a great neighbourhood where our children will be able to grow up. Searching for a house from 4,000 km away is not easy, but we could not be happier now.”
Troy L. (March, 2017)
“Thank you so much for your extraordinary efforts with respect to our home purchase. From the very beginning of our search to the successful conclusion, you worked tirelessly to find and secure a beautiful property.
“In fact, your professionalism, experience and extensive network made the difference. We are absolutely thrilled and very grateful.”
Sayi Yendrapalli & Swapna Nannapaneni (November, 2016)
“Peggy Blair was not only accommodating to all our needs but she was friendly, communicative, informative, genuine, and caring. She went above and beyond to help us make our new home buying process painless. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking to buy/sell a house.”
Leslie Jamieson (October, 2016)
“Having a good realtor is one thing but having one like Peggy who has a fantastic and responsive network of professionals who contribute to a seamless purchasing process is priceless.”
Bill Schaper & Debbie Hantusch (June, 2016)
“We were recently in the market for a cottage. Not just the first time buying a cottage, but the first time not buying a house directly from the builder.
“Peggy was a lifesaver. She first helped us to work through our options over a year ago to decide whether we wanted a larger house or to keep our current home and buy a cottage. The questions she asked at that point were invaluable in helping us to identify what we really wanted.
“Once we started looking, she knew just what we should be looking for, and did a skilful job of providing a sense of what was available in the market, which in turn helped to crystalize our real needs.
“Once we had found a property, she guided us through the buying process, arranged all of the property inspections on our behalf, walked us through what needed to happen, and did a superb job of negotiating.
“We’re incredibly happy with our experience. Peggy’s professionalism, expertise, and dedication to her clients mean we have no hesitation recommending her to others.”
Adriano Palumbo (May, 2016)
“Peggy masterfully engineered the sale of our Glebe home. At first, we thought the list price was too low. However, it was part of her strategy to try to generate multiple listings, and worked ingeniously. We ended up selling for $100K over the list price! I couldn’t be happier with how things turned out.”
Patricia McLarnon (April, 2016)
“I am so pleased to write this recommendation for Peggy Blair.
“I have relocated to Ottawa and had been searching for a home for the previous six months. Peggy was recommended to me after months of struggling to find the” right place” to call home. I contacted Peggy and gave her details of what I was looking for and she found exactly what I wanted in just over a week! AND, to my surprise, at a much lower cost than I expected.
“Peggy took the time to explain all required processes and paper work from the offer stage to closing. I felt very well taken care of and informed throughout. She made my home buying journey easy, stress free and enjoyable.
“As well, her legal and inspection recommendations were the best I’ve ever worked with and I recommend them as highly as I recommend her.
“Thank you Peggy, I’m so excited about my new home. I look forward to recommending you to future home buyers I know. You’re simply the best.”
Greg & Joan Williams (April, 2016)
“We were starting a search for a retirement home in Ottawa, and were referred to Peggy Blair by our daughter. We had some specific requirements and had chosen three areas in the city as our preferred neighbourhoods. After meeting with Peggy, she highlighted a completely different neighbourhood that we had not considered, and the property she showed us was perfect. We are now planning for our retirement move to our new home in Ottawa!
“In addition to Peggy being an expert real estate agent herself, she surrounds herself with and builds relationships with other professionals who help to make the entire experience a joy.”
Emily Shaw (March, 2016)
“We contacted Peggy at the recommendation of a mutual friend and could not be happier with her service.
“As first time homebuyers, we were unfamiliar with the whole process and Peggy took the time to explain every step and answer every question that we had. Her advice was always honest and in agreement with our interests.
“Because of Peggy, our experience with home buying was pleasant and straightforward. We will recommend Peggy wholeheartedly to anyone in need of a home!
