"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."
"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.”
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.
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.

"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.”
"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.”
"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."
"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."
"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!"
"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."
"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."
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."
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."
"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! "
