We can't say enough good things about Peggy. She is the consummate professional. She is honest, hardworking, and also a wonderful person. Before listing and purchasing our home extensive research was done to find a realtor. Peggy was the absolute perfect realtor for us. We immediately "clicked" and we had a true partnership during this process. She is honest, extremely hard working, and always made time for our questions and concerns. Peggy had never listed a house in our community before, and she had some challenges with our listing. Our home was the most expensive listing in our town, and we were also competing with 3 brand new, lesser priced homes, in our vicinity. Peggy not only had our home under contract in 9 days, she also successfully negotiated the purchase of our new home. And everything went smoothly. She is resourceful, has extensive contacts, and her team, as well as her husband Joe (also a realtor) made both our purchase and sale proceed flawlessly. We are so happy to have had the chance to work with her, and would very highly recommend her.
Nancy & Kevin
"Anyone can sell a house in a good market but it takes a special broker to sell a house during a tough one. Peggy Patenaude is that kind of broker. From beginning to end Peggy handled the sale of our home with great expertise and attention to detail, always just a phone call away and quick to respond to any request. She is personable, enthusiastic and her professionalism shines through in all that she does. We would certainly use Peggy again and not hesitate to recommend her to anyone looking to purchase or sell a home."
Janet and Mike Ferrantino, Andover
"Our experience working with you was wonderful. As you know we weren't sure we were going to work with a realtor, however, I was referred to you by one of your former clients. You listened and were sensitive to our needs and understood what we were looking for in a new home. Your experience in this business was proved by your accuracy about the current and future market.”
Deborah & Rick Smith, Andover
When it came time to sell our home, Prudential Howe&Doherty Realtors was selected because of their standing in the community and their knowledge of the local market. Their agent, Peggy Patenaude, did a wonderful job tirelessly guiding us through the entire process. We were very pleased.
Don and Martha Bancroft, Andover
In our opinion Peggy Patenaude sets the standard for a great realtor. She is deeply knowledgeable, honest, organized and warm. I don't know how we would have made it through the sale of our former home and purchase of our current home with work, young kids and life in general without her daily calls and emails to remind us what we needed to do that day. She is a shrewd negotiator on behalf of her clients, rather than simply trying to move on to the next "deal", she wants you to do as well as possible. She was also very generous with her expansive network of proven providers (home inspection etc) saving us time and money. She is the third realtor we had worked with and she will without a doubt be the last. We highly recommend her to anyone in the market to buy/sell a home.
Tom & Kristen Clancy, Boxford
Tom & Kristen Clancy, Boxford
"As a home owner, you need the best realtor on your side to deal with buying and selling of your home. Peggy is the best professional realtor in the region you could get! She helped me purchase and sell my home. She definitely can help to find the house that you want very quickly. I have recommended her to all my friends."
George Zhou, Andover
"Peggy is a professional, knowledgeable, courteous, meticulously organized Realtor and a wonderful person and asset. As a first time buyer, we consider ourselves very lucky to have worked with her."
Meredith & Kevin Tracey, Andover (First Time Home Buyer)
"Peggy was exceptionally courteous, thoughtful and empathetic during a very difficult time in my and my family's lives. I can't praise her enough. She also never failed to respond to my phone calls."
Connie Abodeely, Andover
"Peggy knows her business and she's a sweetheart. Great lady to work with."
Michael & Sharon Ristuccia, Andover
"It was a pleasure working with Peggy. She was knowledgeable, professional and very easy to work with. We thank her for the terrific experience!"
Jennifer & David Rollo, North Andover
"Peggy helped us work through a very tight and hectic schedule in selling our property. We had many moving pieces to make the transaction come to fruition and she was instrumental in making it happen. We appreciate her support and efforts that bottom line got our property sold and allowed us to start our next chapter.”
Tony and Tara Clark, Andover
"We leveraged Peggy's professional assistance both as a buyer's agent and a seller's agent. We moved in 2010 from our home on Amberville Rd (N. Andover) to Andover. Both transactions were a few months apart, and we felt Peggy was the natural choice to represent us as a seller's agent as well, once we saw her attention to detail, professionalism, and knowledge of the Andover/North Andover markets during our purchase transaction. As a buyer's agent, she invested considerable effort with us in finding us the properties that suited our family style, our budget and preferences. As a seller's agent, she demonstrated a very competent understanding of the current market and our neighborhood. She was very proactive in her advertising and marketing efforts, and was very thorough in getting the minor details sorted out - such as the fire alarm inspection, the association certificate, etc. Bottom line: we felt we were in good hands, and could rest easy that our home was getting the right visibility and attention in a competitive market. We'd recommend Peggy as a trusted advisor in a heartbeat.”
Aashu and Sonia Virmani, Andover & North Andover (Buyer & Seller)
"Peggy Patenaude is the most experienced real estate agent we have spoken to. She is extremely professional in her approach. She walked us through an extremely difficult market and had the house sold within a reasonable time frame. She was always there to answer questions. It's our pleasure to work with her on such an important transaction."
Sujata and Jyoti Bhattacharya, Andover
"We want to thank you for all your help selling our home. We greatly appreciated your professionalism and responsiveness which, as we quickly found out, is so important to the whole process. You were always there for us. Your knowledge of the market was invaluable and you represented us in a way that certainly was the key that led to the successful sale. We talked to several realtors when we decided to sell and chose you for what we hoped would be all the right reasons. We were right!"
Frank and Ruth Bellistri, Andover
"Peggy is a wonderful person to deal with! We recommend her to everyone!!"
Scott & Sandra Weisenoff, Andover & Boxford
"We had a very productive and successful experience with Peggy selling our Andover home. We interviewed three other agents before we found her. She impressed us with her energy and insight, and she put both go good use for us. We have already recommended her to other people we know. Thank you Peggy for making this sometimes stressful process go so smoothly for us."
Gail & Hayward Zwerling, Andover
Peggy was wonderful to work with! She worked very hard even though I consider my condo "small potatoes". She was always accessible to answer any questions. Thank you, Peggy!
Tracy LaCreta, Methuen
Peggy did a great job in helping us find our dream house and selling our old house. She is such a wonderful person - showing great enthusiasm in what she is doing; achieving results, yet maintaining the highest level of professionalism. I would highly recommend Peggy to every potential buyer/seller.
George & Daisy Zhou, Andover (Buyer & Seller)
Thank you so much for all your wonderful service and expertise during our home search. I am confident we landed in our beautiful, new home becuase of your hard work and assistance. We are so very grateful. I will not hesistate to refer my friends and family to you. You are wonderful!
Thomas & Kelley Allardi, Andover
"We looked at 3-4 other realtors before deciding to go with Peggy and we are glad that we went with her. Throughout the process of listing and selling our house we could fully rely on Peggy's experience and professional guidance. She approached all issues in an ethical and trustworthy manner and we always felt that we had an honest and reliable partner that provided the right balance of factual analysis and personal opinion that allowed us to make sound decisions in a still difficult real estate market. With Peggy's help we managed to sell and close our house in record time. We really enjoyed working with Peggy and we would recommend her to anyone who plans on selling their home in this area."
Armin & Karin Schulz, Methuen
"I am writing to express my complete satisfaction with Peggy Patenaude as a Realtor. Throughout the entire process, Peggy was professional, conscientious, and motivated. I always felt as if I were her only client. Peggy always promptly returned my phone calls and illustrated a great understanding of contract details. I always appreciated Peggy's calm reassurance and expert advice throughout the entire process. I would highly recommend Peggy for all your real estate needs."
Maureen DiFrancesco, Methuen
"Peggy's expertise was just what we needed when we listed our home. The process can be intimidating but she made it manageable for us."
Alan & Krista Veit, Methuen
"I listed my house through Peggy Patenaude in August 2010. The housing market was very slow then. Daily news and depressing economic forecast were not favorable to sellers. My property did not flow well as the housing market was stagnated. Amidst this grim situation, the professionalism of Peggy brightened my hope. She was upbeat and optimistic that a right buyer would appear. She diligent searched for that "buyer" on my behalf. My house was finally sold after I had relocated overseas. Peggy assuaged many of my practical concerns during my absence. The closing was done smoothly without my presence. Peggy delivered first-rate service during the entire process when she represented my property. Hence, I recommend her to you most highly with confidence and enthusiam."
Lee Chua, Andover
Peggy it was such a pleasure working with you. It was always apparent that you were working for us, and that our house was the most important house on the market. There was never a time when we felt that a simple question was too trivial for you. You always put our requests first, and you are extremely organized, professional, and not pushy. You return phone calls very quickly, and we always felt comfortable calling you at any time. Your communication skills are a strength. You are the best. I cannot stop raving about you. You deserve to be #1. You are on top of everything and always know how to take control of any difficult situation. I do not see how you could improve your services. Most realtors only care about the money, but you are different, you take the seller's emotions and feelings into account and put those first. You made selling our home a pleasant, positive experience. You always realized it was not easy for us, but your caring attitude made us realize we made the right decision.
Ruth & Martin Baer, Andover
Peggy Patenaude is an extremely professional and pleasant real estate agent. She is knowledgeable, personable and upfront. She helped us with our personal needs of selling our condo and buying our 1st home. Peggy's dedication and constant professionalism were invaluable to us. She was supportive to us by letting us know what needed to be done to sell our condo quickly and at a fair price. She was patient and full of information we needed to know to help assist us in purchasing our home. We would recommend Peggy to anyone who is looking for a professional real estate agent who will work hard and get the job done!
Scott & Jennie Whittaker, Methuen & North Andover
Our Realtor, Peggy Patenaude, did a stellar job, sticking with it through 2 floods, one buyer's withdrawal of their offer becuase of the flood and difficulty of working with remote sellers since we were away almost all of the time. So she has to do a lot of the extras on our behalf. She'll go the extra mile and really knows her stuff.
Denny & Lorri Schmick, Andover
"I want to take a minute to thank you for helping me find a home. It took two years but I finally found a place I love! I appreciate your dedication for sticking by me for the last two years. Even when we hit some rough spots, there were a few, you were there supporting me. I couldn't have done this without you. Once again, thank you for your time and dedication."
Regina Marchese, Haverhill (First Time Home Buyer)
"I'll keep it short and sweet. You are the best! Without you we never would have pulled off this move...your experience and guidance were invaluable to us. You always treated us with respect, candor, honesty and patience. I said it before but I'll say it again. I am the most difficult customer on earth, and you were able to meet my very high expectations. Thanks so much from a very grateful family!! You are the best Realtor I've ever know. You are a credit to your agency, as well as the profession!"
Jim & Michie Keefe, Concord (Fine Home, New Construction)
"My wife and I were referred to Peggy by a mutual friend. Being new to
New England, we found the real estate market impossible to understand. We found ourselves thinking, "homes in the South – where we are from – are a small fraction of the cost of an equivalent home in
Massachusetts; how do we know if we’re getting a good deal?” We immediately recognized that Peggy knew the area well – especially
North Andover – and we signed her as our Buying Agent. She was able to guide us towards sections of town that fit well with our lifestyle. Even in this challenging market, we found a house in
Andover that we love and fits well in our budget. Throughout the home buying process, Peggy was available and supportive at every step along the way. I highly recommend her. Peggy clearly knows Andover and North Andover like the back of her hand (it’s impressive, really). "
Nick & Holly Kingsley, Andover
"In challenging economic times the key to us successfully selling our home was Peggy! Her knowledge, professionlism and responsiveness helped us through every step in the process and over every unseen hurdle. We would highly recommend Peggy to anyone in Andover considering selling their home!"
Peter & Maureen Mackin, Andover
"Peggy really knows her business and the Andover real estate market. She gave us sound advice on pricing our house in today's competitive, challenging environment. Because we listened to her, we were able to sell our home quickly and relocate as planned last summer."
Craig & Barbara Castleman, Andover
"What a beautiful, heart-capturing, honest and caring person Ms. Patenaude is! She has the highest of morals and unquestionable integrity and she goes above and beyond to make sure her customers are completely satisfied. We could go on for days about her -She is a SUPER REAL ESTATE LADY. It was such a pleasure to have her sell our house. We really feel that we gained a friend in the transaction."
Zara Rejaee & Alireza Ghamsari, Andover
"Peggy's marked knowledge, professionlism and dedication made the process of selling our home painless."
Ann Camuso, North Andover (Seller | Fine Homes)
"We cannot say enough good things about our recent experience with Peggy Patenaude as both our listing agent and our buyer representative. In the fall of 2008 we listed and sold our Andover house and purchased a new property, also in Andover. Peggy served as our agent for both transactions, and her effectiveness, integrity, and upbeat personality gave us the confidence to sell and buy in a difficult market. Peggy's enthusiasm for her work is genuine and infectious, and she devotes incredible energy and attention to her clients. With Peggy you will get an honest assessment of the market in general and your property in particular, and you will receive as well clear and practical strategies for negotiating your way to a sale or purchase - and all of this information will be delivered with a smile. We could not have asked for a better partner in our recent real estate transactions."
Jeffrey & Anita Renton, Andover
"Peggy was a great person to deal with from start to finish. Since we were first time home buyers she educated us every step of the way. Peggy is an amazing representative for your company. We will recommend her to anyone interested in buying/selling a home in the North Shore."
Charles & Kathleen Lynch, Middleton (First Time Home Buyer)
Peggy was just wonderful to work with, considering this was the most dreadful housing market in 35 years, she got the job done. She was always upbeat, pleasant and helpful. She was extremely positive and always encouraging. I would recommend her in a heartbeat to anyone at anytime. She is truely a gem.
Paula A. Hegarty, Andover (Fine Homes)
My husband Ken and I absolutly love our new home! It is a perfect fit for us, and one of the best financial decisions we could have made! Peggy was 100% devoted to helping us find our new home and we watched her work endlesss hours with not only us but other clients as well. It was an absolute pleasure working with her and I would recommend Peggy Patenaude to any friends and family looking to buy a home!
Catherine Driscoll, Methuen
My house was put up for sale on September 15, 2008. It was sold on December 30, 2008. I appreciated the hard work of Peggy in accomplishing this task. She was extremely helpful in assessing the completion of the house & how to best present it for sale. She provided guidance to establish the selling price initially & recommended price changes to respond to current market conditions. She communicated reguarly so that we felt we were responsive to potential buyers & conducted buyer-seller negotiations quickly and effectively. I recommend her highly as a sales person to assist you in selling your home.
Saul Birnbach, Andover
"I feel I was so lucky to have chosen Peggy Patenaude to sell my house. I had been in my house for 32 years and never sold before. It was time for a retirement community. She was honest with expectations and gave excellent advice, preparing me for each step along the way. I felt she was doing everything possible to market the property. Peggy was easily reachable, returning calls quickly and so much fun to work with. Many times my family and friends have heard me say how happy I was with Peggy's performance. I could not have asked for more. She is the best."
Carlene Washburn, Andover (Seller)
"I found my house by my own research, consequently I had the freedom to decide who to work with , but having dealt with Peggy on previous property inquiries I felt comfortable working with her to close the transaction. This proved to be a good decision as Peggy was on top of things throughout the process. She was knowledgeable and gave sound advise. She proved to be fair intermediary between us and the Builder/Seller and her attention to detail was a critical to make sure nothing was left unwritten.
Peggy understood that our house was a unique situation, we bought a fully restored antique house that was neither new construction nor sold as-is, She helped the buyer and the seller come to terms and checked that the terms were met.
As a businessman I appreciate her professionalism and feel comfortable recommending her to others."
Tony & Amy Boden, Andover
"Peggy is extremely professional, friendly, knowledgeable and works very hard. She is excellent at handling all of the small details required in the home selling process. She is far and away the BEST real estate agent I have ever dealt with."
Ken & Allison Smith, Andover
"About a year ago, illness forced us to put our home on the market. We had lived in it for over forty eight years and were very sad to have to sell the home and property. We listed it with Peggy who was most sensitive to our needs and empathetic to our feelings.
We had never sold a home before and had many questions and concerns. Therefore, we called Peggy many times and she always answered our calls promptly and was unfailingly polite and cordial"
Connie Abodelly, Andover
"We went into our search with no plans to even use an agent as both of us can be described as somewhat independent people to say the least. But after meeting you and talking with you for a while by happenstance at a house we were interested in I could tell the benefits in having you as our agent would bring to the table. Those qualities that changed my mind were complete honesty, incredible knowledge of the current inventory and history of homes, detailed knowledge of builders in the area, and the ability to listen to what our needs and desires were. When I told my wife that I wanted to hire you as our agent because I felt these qualities, she responded with a smile, as she said that she felt the same way and was hoping I would feel the same as well.
We then went on a long journey together as it did take quite some time to match our laundry list of needs and desires with the inventory available and our budget. Your patience in this process was extremely appreciated, and when we did finally find the best match for our laundry list you followed through every step of the way to make sure the I’s were dotted and the t’s were crossed.
The highest compliment I think I can give you is that I know my business which employs over 20 sales representatives would be more successful if they all had the honesty, integrity, product knowledge, listening skills, and desire to be as good at what they do as Peggy Patenaude. I would strongly recommend to any person in our neck of the woods to hire you if they wanted to have peace of mind and know the job will be done right with their best interests at heart, which is not something that can be said of all people in the sales profession.
Once again Allison and I thank you from the bottom of our hearts and can’t wait to have you over for dinner in our new home once the remodeling is done."
Chris & Allison Chapman, Andover
"Thanks for your tenacity and balance in moving our sale forward and ultimately keeping it together in a very tough market. I really appreciated your willingness to listen to ideas to try new marketing and be open and positive in this challenging market. Thanks for everything. We'll call on you if we're buying/selling again in the area."
Tom Giuliana, Andover
" Peggy is a consumate professional. She always strives for 100% efficiency while putting her clients at ease with her easy going and friendly demeanor. She exudes confidence and will work very hard to meet her clients needs."
Lynne & Ron Novella, North Andover
"Wei and I would like to thank you for all your hard work throughout our real estate transactions. It is not easy to sell in this kind of down market, especially with mortgage sub prime issues and economic downturns. However, you went above and beyond and walked through every step with us, dealing with unexpected issues, coordinating with different parties. . . On the buy side, again, you answered any questions that we had regarding the house, and you even went extra miles to assist us in researching any potential issues/uncertainty regarding the house. We’re really impressed!
Peggy, throughout the transactions, you provided numerous valuable advice to us which helped us make better decisions. Your great attitude, professionalism, reliability, and patience have really made you stand out. We’re fortunate to have you as our buyers’ and sellers’ agent. We’d recommend you to anyone that we know in future real estate transactions.
Again, thank you very much Peggy, for all your hard work! It has been a great pleasure working with you! "
Wei & Angie Chen, Andover, MA (Fine Homes)
"Peggy's professionalism and networking helped sell our house quickly. Her efficient skills and warm smile made the process so pleasant".
Marianne & Joe Levis, North Andover
"Peggy was referred to us by my parents, Peter & Joan Dugan, whom she helped find a wonderful home for in 2004. After searching for many weekends in the rain and snow in the winter of this year, my now husband and I are in a home far more exquisite than we had imagined. We are first time home owners, and Peggy made the entire transaction an easy one for us to navigate. We could NOT have done this without her!"
Amy & Sam Marchese - Bradford (First Time Home Buyers)
"Peggy is an outstanding buyer's agent! She is the most responsive person - she is easy to reach and quick to return calls which is crucial in the home-buying process. Peggy was so helpful to us during our home search. Her extensive knowledge of homes and neighborhoods helped us choose wisely and I am so grateful to her for not allowing us to be swayed by beautiful decorating or clever home staging. She taught us to look beyond the surface to see the true condition of a house. She is savvy, wise and a terrific agent."
Kate Scott - North Andover
"This was the 7th home I have sold and moved from in the last 30 years! Peggy was, by far, the BEST agent we have ever dealt with. She was honest, forthright and incredibly energetic. She sold our house in record time in the worst market in history. She made a difficult process as easy and pleasant as I could ever imagine. No one could ask for a better Real Estate Professional to work with. (And we picked up a new friend, to boot!)"
Tracey Upton & Kathy Parsons, Andover
"Peggy was a wonderfully thoughtful, meticulously organized, professional and friendly Realtor. She was the perfect fit for my wife and me as 1st time buyers. She is knowledgeable, courteous and extremely conscientious. In short, we could not have asked for better service. We will highly recommend her to our friends in the future."
Kevin & Merri Tracey, Andover (First Time Home Buyers)
"Peggy is an exceptional Realtor. She was with us every step of the way throughout the process of buying our first home. She made a seemingly overwhelming process go smoothly through her continuous support, advice and honesty. You can always trust that Peggy is guiding you in the right direction and recommending all the right people to make your purchase as easy as possible. Her obvious knowledge and years of experience leave you feeling confident, knowing that you are in good hands. Peggy was truly a pleasure to work with and we would recommend her to everyone - you will not be disappointed. "
Jason Stephens & Erin Clayton, North Andover (First Time Home Buyers)
"My wife and I had our condo listed for three months with another Realtor. We had only a few showings, little interest and the only thing he could say was that the market was bad. We didn´t renew his contract and found Peggy online. She was professional and strategic from the start. She coached us on how to stage our condo to be sold - cleaning out closets, storage areas, etc. She took pictures during the day to take advantage of the sunlight. Very strategic, especially compared to our last Realtor. Her diligence paid off and we had an offer in 25 days. Peggy was cautious and helpful with the offer - cautiously optimistic - explaining the pros and cons. Lots of cons - but we took it and we closed recently. A great feeling in this market! Thank you, Peggy!"
Hope Force & Carl Morris, Methuen (Seller)
"It was a pleasure to work with Peggy Patenaude. Her years of experience, honesty, knowledge of the market and her "personal touch" made my selling experience seamless. She was always available to talk to me about my property and the selling experience. She is not only your Realtor, she became a friend who you could trust. Selling a home in this market was difficult but Peggy´s style, her follow up, answering those "questions" we all have to ask repeatedly ("When is it going to sell?") made it a positive experience. She is the best!"
Candee Siracusa, Methuen
"Peggy took an incredible amount of care in helping us find the right home for our family. With Peggy´s help we found the perfect home. We would recommend Peggy to anyone looking to move to the Andover, North Andover area!"
Rob & Jen Petersen, North Andover
"Most people make sure that they have a thorough set of comps done when selling a house. I made sure that I went through the same process in choosing a Realtor to sell my house. Personally knowing several Realtors in Andover, I wanted to choose someone whom I did not know, as not to be perceived as choosing one friend over another. I researched every agency and sieved through each Realtor on the web site, comparing number of houses listed, houses sold, in what time frame and how close to asking price. All of my research paid off and I made the right choice! Peggy had the right balance of being personable, thorough and professional. She always respected my input, kept me in the loop and was proactive. With the market in a real downturn, she persevered and followed every lead. She was always willing to take the time to check on the house since I had already moved out of town. Right down to the last detail, Peggy was diligent. I highly recommend Peggy without reservation. "
Marcia Huston, Andover
"Choosing Peggy Patenaude to sell our home was the best decision we made. She is a true professional, highly respected by her collegues and clients. She advised us on what was needed to get the house ready for the market and then invested unbelievable time and energy marketing and broadly advertising. Many people commented on her great MLS listing and amazing pictures (she actually had her photographer come back twice). Her open house was a major success. Peggy guided us both through all this with patience, sensitivity and caring. She has continued to support us and the buyer long after the closing. We highly recommend Peggy. "
Maura & Akmal Khan, Andover (Fine Homes)
"My husband and I spent over a year looking for exactly the right home to purchase before putting ours on the market. Peggy was with us 100%, day in - day out, on both transactions. She was on top of every listing that came close to meeting our critieria and her persistance and dedication is THE reason we are in our dream house today. She is incredibly respected by her peers which I firmly believe gave us a leg up on our offer. She worked tirelessly on our behalf, expertly guiding us through all the pros and cons of each critical decision. She didn´t just tell us what we wanted to hear, she was an unbiased sounding board and always dispensed useful, yet unintrusive advice. She got to know who we were as people and customized her approach based on that. We are eternally grateful for the exceptional service she provided and would both recommend and use her again without hesitation."
Karen & Justin Davis, North Andover (Fine Homes)
"Peggy was an amazing Realtor and did a great job selling our home. She was attentive to our concerns and gave us assurance that our house would be sold. I would recommend anyone who is looking to sell their house to go to Peggy; you will not be disappointed."
Jin Cho, Andover (Fine Homes)
"Peggy was very committed and stayed with us through the house sale process. "
Patty & Ed Heinle, Andover, MA
"Working with Peggy Patenaude made a real estate transcation become a pleasurable experience. She works diligently for her clients and covers every angle. As well as being very professional she is also very kind and caring. She always has something positive to relay to you about your home and we would recommend her to anyone thinking of listing their home with her and in fact have done so with neighbors on our street."
Joe & Kathy Cullinan, Andover, MA
"The luckiest thing we did when we started looking for our house, was to wander into an open house in Andover hosted by Peggy Patenaude. She quickly impressed us with her command of the business, her familiarity with the area, and her professional but very personable style. Peggy listened when we talked. She made it her mission to understand exactly what we were looking for in a home. We whole-heartedly recommend Peggy as a buyer’s agent, a seller’s agent, or, as in our case both."
Ted Lewis & Susan Sabia, North Andover
"Throughout the daunting process of finding, financing and purchasing our new home, the one consistent point was the exceptional service we received from Peggy Patenaude. My husband and I felt as though we were treated like we were her only clients. She was always available (day or night) to answer questions or soothe our nerves. In fact, we joked at how she could possibly have additional clients, based upon the attention we enjoyed. As a real estate professional, she is top-notch and she is an even greater person. You could not be in better hands than Peggy´s"
Michelle & Barry Johnston, Haverhill
"We were very lucky that Peggy was recommended to us by a friend. As first-time home buyers, we were nervous about making such a big decision and maneuvering through the intense logistics of buying a house. But Peggy always listened to our concerns, provided thoughtful feedback, gave expert guidance and reassured us every step of the way. She was always responsive, always followed through and was always kind and friendly. We would definately recommend Peggy to anyone who is buying a home."
Victoria & Tom McCandless, Lowell (First Time Home Buyers)
"Peggy is phenomenal. As first time homeowners we didn’t know what to expect and we soon came to find out our purchase was exceptionally complicated. Not only did Peggy help us every step along the way, but she was our advocate. She taught us so much and was always available to us even outside of "normal” business hours. She really listened to us and is the sole reason our difficult purchase ended in such a positive way for us. We will continue to use Peggy in the future and will recommend her to anyone in need of a realtor.”
Eric & Gina Aubrey, Billerica (First Time Home Buyers)
"Peggy Patenaude is truly an asset to your organization. We have worked with many realtors over the last year and Peggy was by far the best. She is professional, caring, pays attention to detail, and truly uncovers the buyers’ true needs and wants. She was patient with us throughout the process and was always on top of new listings. If it weren’t for her working around the clock, we would have missed out on this opportunity at 4 Harmony Lane. We have since referred friends, colleagues and family to Peggy, in the here and now and for in the future.”
Patty & George Rose, Andover (Buyer | Fine Homes)
"Peggy, thank you so much for all your care and professionalism. You made this difficult process an extremely enjoyable experience for both of us. You were exceptionally professional, kind and patient. You are a woman of fine character. We consider you a friend. With much appreciation.”
Stephen & Kathleen Um, Charlestown (First Time Home Buyers)
"Peggy, you were a pleasure to work with because you were honest & upfront from the beginning. You always answered all of our questions in a timely manner which helped us stay calm with being first time homebuyers. You always directed us in the right direction and referred us to the right people which helped us close & sign the purchase and sale in a short amount of time.”
Deidra & Daniel Ruvido, Andover (First Time Home Buyers)
"What impressed us is that Peggy Patenaude knows how to market a home, knows how to judge the market timing, and knows how to compare your home against current market conditions within your area. She can correctly estimate the range of prices that your home can command at the time the home is listed for sale. Despite the difficulties encountered, with Peggy’s help, we sold our home for a very satisfactory price, within our time frame for moving. When it comes time to sell our current home, I hope we find someone as competent as Peggy.”
Bruno & Carolyn Mattedi, Andover
"Peggy was assertive, knowledgeable and patient, her relationship with us was genuine.”
Karen & Eduardo Quinteros, North Andover
"Selling our house was a pleasure with Peggy Patenaude. She was always available to answer all our questions and guide us through the procedure, beginning to end. Our house wasn’t huge or important, but Peggy made us feel as though our account was on the top of her list!”
Meredythe Impey, Andover
"Peggy is one of the best agents that you could ever ask for. She’s knowledgeable, works hard, is creative and is a very good listener. She has an outstanding personality and very good interpersonal skills. It is very difficult to give candid feedback, as a broker, when it comes to some of the deficiencies that we may not see as sellers and homebuyers. She always passed on the comments of the potential buyers with skill and diplomacy while being totally honest in her approach and feedback. We want to thank Peggy and the entire Prudential staff for the way you handled our home and the way you handled the entire sale.”
Colin & Carolyn Ahern, Andover (Fine Homes)
"Peggy is a wonderful, hardworking and knowledgeable real estate agent. Her energy is limitless and she always did everything she could to help us find the right house. Peggy’s knowledge of the Andover’s is extensive. She gave us the names of some great contractors and vendors. Peggy is the best!!”
Ken & Allyson Smith, Andover
"Thank you, Peggy, for your help in selling our home in Andover—a first for you, perhaps, that the "For Sale” was posted only one day, and our neighbor stated "that was the fastest sale I’ve ever seen!” Thanks again, Peggy, for professional appearance, demeanor, and really friendly contact. Continued success to you.”
Helen & Joseph Campbell, Andover
"Peggy, thank you so much for your guidance and help during this process. Making the decision to buy was difficult and scary for me and your patience, kindness and understanding helped ease my mind. I especially appreciate that you treated me the same way you treat your clients who are buying something far more expensive than my condo. I look forward to doing business with you in the future."
Maggie Walsh, Andover (First Time Home Buyer)
"Peggy, thanks for the very professional and thorough job you did for us in finding the right fit for our new condo. You asked the right questions, weeded out the things we didn’t like, and focused on the things we did like and led us to the best choice! We negotiated a fair price. We’ve moved in and are very happy. Thanks also for the extras-financing direction, help finding an attorney, contractors, etc. When we’re ready to sell we’ll come to you.”
Denny & Lorri Schmick, Andover
"My wife & I were selling our home & purchasing a new one, both in Andover. It was very stressful to say the least. To further complicate the process, all this was happening while I was traveling on business in Japan. Peggy was excellent in handling the details and ensuring nothing fell through the cracks. She was also very accommodative in dealing with the 12+ hour time difference when communicating with me in Japan. The whole process went very smoothly & my wife & I were extremely pleased with Peggy´s performance. I would definitely call for her services again should I plan another move and I would highly recommend her to any potential client."
Anthony and Debbie Christopher, Andover
"We really enjoyed working with Peggy. She was not only helpful and pleasant but made the whole process of buying a new house easy. She has gone above and beyond since the time of the purchase in helping to ensure all the loose ends in our new home were tied up. We really couldn’t have asked for better service"
Carolyn & Joe DiGiammo, Andover (Fine Homes)
"This is the first time we have bought a house, and we were naturally suspicious of the whole process. Peggy was able to answer all our questions with honesty and clarity, and served as a superb negotiator between buyer and seller. Throughout all this she was able to remain loyal to the sellers and was pivotal in the success of the sale. Peggy is a very hardworking honest person and is extremely knowledgeable about the Realty business. An asset on any team.”
Jonathan & Alexandra Issberner, Andover (First Time Home Buyers)
"Peggy recently helped us purchase our new home in North Andover. The process was very involved as the sellers were using a relocation service. Peggy made a difficult and stressful situation much easier due to her extensive knowledge of the real estate industry and her constant updates, which put us at ease. I would highly recommend Peggy’s services to anyone.”
Valerie & Dan Fay, North Andover
"Peggy, After we sold our home in Canton, and were unable to find a home for our family of six in Andover, you stepped up to the plate and made it all happen. Not only did you find the perfect home for our family, but you helped manage the timing and transition in a professional and friendly manner. We will always be grateful to you and feel very lucky to know you."
Audrey Desisto, Andover (Fine Homes, New Construction)
"Peggy is very helpful and knowledgeable. Thanks for making my condo purchase fast and easy."
Melissa Gaudette, Andover (First Time Home Buyer)
"Peggy Patenaude went the extra mile to ensure I got everything I wanted in a home. She never gave up looking for the right house for me. Her experience and excellent judgment was the key to a very smooth transaction from beginning to end. Peggy is definitely a very trusting real estate agent that I would use in my next real estate venture.”
Donna Aldrich, North Andover
"From the moment Peggy Patenaude came into my home and I shook hands with her, I knew it was going to be a pleasure to work with her. Peggy is most personable and a very knowledgeable, experienced realtor. She is thorough, accurate and competent in every aspect of selling/buying a home. She helps make what can be a difficult and tiring ordeal a much more pleasant experience. How lucky for me that Peggy Patenaude answered the phone when I called Prudential Howe & Doherty!”
Margaret Pesaturo, North Andover
"Peggy is knowledgeable, professional and ethical. She made what we expected to be a hectic, stressful process smooth and easy. You’ll be doing yourself a favor by taking the time to meet her early on, whether buying or selling. By meeting the best you will be able to judge all the rest.”
Wally & Jeannie Rosberg, Tewksbury
"Thank you for your quick response and attention to detail during the purchase of our home. We felt you had our best interest at heart through the entire process. You are a true professional. Thank you."
Ralph & Elizabeth Covino, Andover (New Construction)
"Ours was not a simple buy/sell transaction as it involved multiple real estate sales-Peggy’s knowledge of the market and pricing resulted in multi-million dollar transactions which all closed in less than ninety days. But what was even more astounding was her ability to close all parties on the same day..."
Michael Ferrante, Andover (Fine Homes)
"We contacted Peggy via e-mail prior to relocating to the Andover area from NY. Peggy was a partner in the whole process, helping not only the house purchase and sale but advice on sources of Bridge Loans to cover the mortgage expenses on both homes until our former house sold. Peggy is a pleasure to work with, persistence and perseverance with a caring attitude were her key attributes during the whole process."
David & Janice Jones, Methuen
"When we first thought about selling our home in Andover, MA we felt sure that with a positive market we could sell the house ourselves. So we listed it on the web with a popular site. It was on the market for 6 months with a lot of activity but no solid offers. We met Peggy through a client of hers and we immediately knew that she could help us. We turned the listing over to Peggy and within 3 DAYS we had our home under agreement! Thank you Peggy for all that you did!
Sandy and Ed Stewart, Andover (Previous For Sale By Owner)
"We couldn’t have picked a better agent or person. You worked so hard and know your stuff. We’re settling in and love "everything" about it. With deep appreciation,
Pete and Joan Dugan, North Andover
