Our professionals are continuously updating their training and education, allowing them to be among the most cutting-edge in their field.
  • Experience and Expertise: You want a full-time REALTOR® who is familiar with your area and with the type of property you intend to sell.

  • Availability and Commitment: Your agent should be capable of prompt and decisive action during the course of selling your property. They should be able to keep in touch with you via phone, email, text message, etc and should be readily available in case of emergencies or even for the simplest questions. Our Team is always available for you during the home selling process to address any questions or concerns that you may have. We have 5 full time office staff and 5 full time agents, all working towards selling your home! We communicate with our clients through text, email, over the phone and in person. We will communicate with you in whichever way you are most comfortable!
  • Rapport: You want an agent to take the time to listen to your goals and clarify your needs. Your agent should understand your unique situation and be genuinely concerned about the outcome of the process. Your listing agent will be your guide and partner in this crucial decision, so it is important to find one with whom you are comfortable, can get along with and trust.
  • What is Your Property Worth?

    Without a professional REALTOR®, most independent property sellers tend to overestimate the value of their property. There are dangers to overestimating your properties value that may cause your property to sit on the market for a longer period of time and could eventually cause your property to sell below market value:

  • Fewer buyers are attracted and fewer offers are received, if any
  • Marketing momentum from the initial listing is lost
  • The property attracts ‘lookers’ and helps competing houses look better by comparison
  • You can avoid these pitfalls by consulting with an experienced real estate listing agent.

At The Peggy Hill Team we believe that every home sale should be handled with the utmost responsibility and care. We believe that the selling process should be exciting, comfortable, informative and stress-free. We are committed to a consultative approach to selling your home so you can make informed decisions regarding the sale of your home
