Terry Laycock Schneider’s Testimonials

How My Clients Feel About My Service


“Joan and I couldn’t be more pleased with our Peggy Hill experience. From the time we interviewed Terry, we knew we were in good hands. Almost immediately, a team consisting of a stager, a photographer, and people with advice sprang into action. Ten days and 2 open houses later, our house was sold for the price we wanted. After the sale, we were provided with a package of suggestions on what to do, and who to contact, complete with phone numbers and addresses. This made the transition out of our home much easier. It was entirely fool proof. We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend the Peggy Hill Team.”

– Doug and Joan B., Barrie ON, Sellers

“5 Star Google Review ★★★★★. The entire Peggy Hill team were knowledgeable, professional and beyond helpful. From Alicia’s home staging tips to the office staff, every one was attentive and responded to ALL our questions quickly. Terry Laycock Schneider was patient, laid back and great to deal with. We have not moved in almost 20 years so had lots of questions and concerns. She walked us through the process and even answered my 1 million text messages (not really 1 million but a lot!). Our home sold with just 1 showing but the service did not stop there. After sale experience has been fantastic. We will use this dynamic team when we sell again and would highly recommend them.”

– Theresa G., Buyer & Seller

“I am extremely happy with Peggy Hill, especially Terry, I have told anyone that will listen how much fun Terry made the whole buying and selling of my home. She is excellent to work with and really she listened to what I had to say and what I needed out of this process. I will recommend the Peggy Hill Team, especially Terry to anyone that asks me.”

– Doug R., Buyer & Seller

“My wife and I would like to share our experience with The Peggy Hill Team and the sale of our house. From the first time meeting Terry our agent, to the sale of our house, it was a fantastic experience. Terry sat with us before we listed and explained each step along the way and how we were going to get the true value of what our house was worth. Then came along Alicia to help with staging. Wow, what a fantastic person she is. Alicia had great ideas for the staging of our house and was very helpful and followed up to ensure we were comfortable with our set up. The showings started immediately and within days, our house was sold for more than we could have ever imagined. Very, very pleasant and fun experience through out the whole process with the Peggy Hill Team. Thank you so much for all you have done.”

“5 Star Google Review ★★★★★. As first time sellers we were feeling overwhelmed with the selling process. The Peggy Hill Team came highly referred to us and we made the decision to contact them. We are so glad that we did and will undoubtedly use them in the future! From the office staff, our stager – Alicia and our agent- Terry, we were thrilled with how knowledgeable, helpful and pleasant everyone was. We were very intimidated by the concept of having a stager and thought it unnecessary for an entry level town home like ours. When Alicia showed up at our home we had no idea what to expect. She was simply wonderful. She went through room by room making suggestions to improve our home. At no time did we feel like she was judging our style or home. She opened up our space immensely and made it look stunning! Everything we purchased for staging was something that could come along to our new home and practical. She welcomed pictures and answered questions even after she had left. Our advice to a first time seller is use a stager! The difference Alicia made to our home was incredible! There truly are no words to express how much we adored our agent Terry. From the moment we met her and she sat down to play superheroes with our 3 year old son we knew that she was a great match for our family! Terry guided us through the selling process, she was available to us whenever we needed her and left no question unanswered. Terry brought the perfect combination of experience, professionalism and fun to our selling experience. Our home had it’s first offer within hours of the photos being taken and sold firm in less than a week for over asking price. Terry said it perfectly – while we are so glad our home sold so quickly we were sad that our time together was so short! Without hesitation we would recommend the team to anyone!”

– Craig & Jenn C., Sellers

“5 Star Google Review ★★★★★. Positive Experience We were awed by the excellent service. After having our home for sale the previous year with no action, we removed it and continued to look for the right realtor. A family member heard an ad on the radio for Peggy Hill and urged that we call. We did and finally connected with the best! We were paired with Terry Laycock Schneider.

“When contemplating a move from Pickering to Barrie area, we called some friends for referrals of Agents in the area. Without hesitation, they both recommended The Peggy Hill team. Our first experience with the team was with Donna. We instantly felt comfortable and knew we had been advised well. After a conversation with Donna outlining our needs, she said she had an agent in mind and would have her call us back later that day. We were fortunate to be paired up with Terry Laycock Schneider. Terry’s knowledge of the area was invaluable to us and her personality made us feel like we were dealing with a friend. House hunting in a new city can be quite an ordeal, but with the Peggy Hill team, we enjoyed the process from start to finish resulting in the perfect home for our family. Our interests were always at the forefront and the transaction was seamless. Thank you to the whole team for making our initial transition to Barrie so positive! We look forward to our move and would not hesitate to recommend the team!”

Most importantly I never felt pressured and my house sold for above asking price in just four days. Job well done and many thanks. “

– Lillian B., Seller

“The Peggy Hill Team is made up of amazing individuals who all work as one to get the job done! My husband and I had found our dream home and needed to sell ours ASAP. We made a call into Peggy’s office and within minutes we had an agent on the line who was able to meet with us immediately. From that moment on we were swept up into the real estate world (one we weren’t too familiar with). Peggy’s team (and specifically our wonderful agent Terry Laycock Schneider) walked us through all the processes, answered our million and one questions (day and night!) and made us feel stress-free. We highly recommend the Peggy Hill Team to anyone looking to buy or sell their home as they make you feel like yours is the only job they are working on.”

The terrific on-line promotion and professional photos helped immensely with the extremely quick sale of our home. The response to any of our questions by either phone or email was always prompt and informative. We would highly recommend The Peggy Hill Team to anyone considering selling their home.”

– Peter & Darlene F.

“We are return clients of Peggy’s! Your request for a few words is our only problem, there are too many words to describe our experience! Peggy, Terry and the whole team always presented themselves as the professionals they are. The communication was second to none…they were in constant touch notifying us of the upcoming appointment dates and times, the feedback received and even signing the documents was done through theDocuSign process, allowing us to remain in the comfort of our own home. Peggy and Terry spoke honestly and were very hands on even rearranging furniture and making positive suggestions on how to best promote our property. The results speak for themselves! With sincere thanks and to all the future clients, our last words are, you have made the best choice!!”

– Howard & Donna E.

“Once we made the decision to sell our house we intended to invite three Real Estate Agencies to assess the property and select the one that we believed would be most beneficial to us. We made contact with the Peggy Hill Team first. Terry Laycock Schneider, broker with the Peggy Hill Team, came to our home and presented to us the way that their organization would market the property, help with the home presentation, photographs negotiations etc etc. Terry also presented, in depth, who the Peggy Hill Team were, their depth of experience, their success record and their many different areas of expertise. Perhaps the first impression from the presentation was the enthusiasm that Terry gave and the strong impression of their organization being a very strong “TEAM”. The professionalism that Terry demonstrated was very encouraging and the depth of expertise she presented was profound. The presentation not only presented the “veterans” but also the fact that the organization was introducing new perhaps less experienced employees. This demonstrated to us the company’s desire and ability to grow. After the presentation, and Terry had left, we both declared immediately that we wanted the Peggy Hill Team to market our property and there was no need to invite any more agencies. We asked The Peggy Hill Team to represent us. They brought in experts to help us present the house for viewing, a photographer to prepare a brochure that was absolutely wonderful and generally worked with us in every way to help sell our property. Our property sold quickly, with Terry being front and centre with the negotiations. We have already started telling our friends about our Peggy Hill experience and have no hesitation in recommending them to anyone interested in selling their home.”

– Pam & Iain C.

“I would like to say thanks for all your team for the very detailed information and for the detailed description of the property, photos and video materials, as well as beautiful flyers. We also, really appreciate professionalism and outstanding service provided to us by Terry! She is really great person to work with. She always responded quickly by phone and by email, provided the detailed answers to all our questions, was always on time for the showings and did even more, was waiting for us longer time when we were late for the showing. She was very patient while negotiating and did not show any pressure. We were lucky to work with her at this time and would like to work with her in future.”

– Natalia I.

“With the stresses of life and finding a home we have been most pleased to have found an agent and a friend in Terry. Terry never once doubted our needs and was full of enthusiasm and eagerness to see us succeed in purchasing a house that we could make into a home. She was very knowledgeable and offered a refreshing and positive perspective on the fixer upper homes we looked at. Terry along with the Team at Peggy Hill was able to accommodate us quickly with getting us into homes to view as well as our final negotiations in our purchase. We have gone through the motions and process stress free because of this. No matter the time of day Terry always made time to talk or send over info regarding a property I was interested in. She has become a great friend and we look forward to moving ahead through life with both Terry and the Team at Peggy Hill. We couldn’t have asked anymore but their giving was never ending. Our thanks goes out to Terry and The Team”

– Kristen

“It has been an absolute pleasure working with Terry. I really appreciated her knowledge, advice and no-nonsense approach. I also was very impressed by the photographer Brian. He did a fantastic job of showcasing my house. In addition to all that, I really had the feeling that the entire Peggy Hill team was involved and could be counted on to provide information and services. The little touches like providing some boxes and labels are very much appreciated and the feature sheets demonstrated total professionalism. Thank you to all. I have already touted your services to friends and colleagues and will continue to do so”

– Michele P.Barrie

– Denise T., Innisfil

“Terry was very professional in every aspect of the word. As far as we are concerned she went above and beyond  in locating our dream home for us. She listened to exactly what we were looking for and then presented us with showings that were within our expectations and budget. She has continued to help us, after we purchased the home, since we are not from the area. Both my wife and I are very thankful for the job Terry has done and is continuing to do for us.”

– Wayne W., Innisfil

– Reid J., Investor & Home Owner

“We had a very satisfying experience selling and buying with Peggy Hill and Associates.
Terry Laycock-Schneider was absolutely great to work with!!! She was very nice and very accommodating to our time schedule. She always got back to us, whether it was via phone or text message within minutes and answered any questions we had. She showed us quite a few homes and was very patient with us. Would love to work with her again in the future 🙂 The appointment staff was great, too, very pleasant on the phone. Skye gave us great tips on what to do to the house for best picture and video quality. She was very nice and professional. She typed up a great description of our home for the MLS site. We loved the fact that Peggy has so many advertising tools, and does not list the house just on MLS, or newspapers, but also on YouTube and for the Toronto Market to see. Also, nice feature sheets!!! We would definitely use Peggy Hill & Associates again in the future to sell our home and recommend this company to friends and family with confidence, knowing that they can get the job done. Peggy promised that it would be a smooth transition in selling and buying another home and she stayed true to her promise. We sold for exactly what we were looking to get out of our home. She did not over-price our house like other Realtors have done in the past; therefore, selling very fast, we really liked that!!! A BIG THANK YOU to all of you at the Peggy Hill’s office for your hard work and making this a stress-free sale!”

Kind Regards,
– Natascha & Dan Z., Barrie

“Terry was very helpful and mindful of what we were looking for.  Attention to our wants and needs vs. promoting own listings was very much appreciated and respected.  Honesty with faults of residences being highlighted saved many hours and led to a successful purchase.  Limited to a week to secure a residence, she complied and achieved our objective in three days.  All services recommended and obtained by Terry were of as high a quality as her service.  We would be happy to recommend her to friends and family. Thanks much for the service and professionalism.”

– Andre & Janeen

“The first time we opened our front door to Peggy Hill was also the first time we knew that choosing her to sell our home and purchase a new one was the smartest decision we ever made.  She is an absolutely fantastic person and her staff is phenomenal! Working with Peggy and Terry Laycock-Schneider was like spending time with good friends.  No complaints about our schedule as they were very accommodating and both went the extra mile.  There was lots of laughter too.  We can honestly say that Peggy Hill & Associates “care about the client!”. Our home had numerous showings before it went on mls and sold about a week later as it was priced well and we ended up with exactly what we expected. The patience that Peggy and Terry showed when taking us out to view homes was exceptional and appreciated and, after seeing many, we found a home with everything we were looking for. In closing, we would like to say that if you are looking for a realtor who works really hard, has an amazing personality, fantastic staff, access to amazing marketing tools, and really focuses on the client, do not hesitate for a second and call Peggy Hill.  We guarantee you won’t be sorry.”

– Manuella & Anne M.

“We are so happy to have purchased our first home. Terry was very helpful and extremely patient with us considering we saw a lot of homes and at times to me everything started to blend. As Fred puts it, “She’s the bomb”. We both agree that should we ever sell, she’ll be selling for us and also assisting in finding us another home, of course if it’s okay with her. Even when it came down to the wire and negotiations started, she was there as our real estate agent but also seemed like a friend. We would recommend her to our family and friends. Thank you.”

– Laura and Fred

“We are so happy that our house is now sold. Everyone in the office was very nice and easy to deal with. Terry is a great agent, always in contact and very accommodating. We will definitely recommend her!!

– Sandy and Mike

“As soon as Terry knew what I wanted, she sent me a list of homes in my price range and we were out looking a couple of days later (based on my schedule). She has a great sense of humor and I felt like we were friends. She gave me ideas for the offer I never would have thought of and it worked! I will definitely tell my friends about her and the Peggy Hill Team.”
