Peggy's knowledge and patience were greatly appreciated. We were looking for our dream home and didn't want to settle. It took a while to find what would work for our family-- a home that we could be truly happy in. Peggy was quick to show us houses throughout the year and long process. She would help point out good and not so good qualities about each property. I had confidence in Peggy's knowledge and ability to meet deadlines, communicate with other agents professionally and respectfully, and...see more
I'm so happy I had the opportunity to work with you again, and I want to thank you for the advice and support you gave to me. You are an outstanding realtor and I will highly recommend you to my friends. I wish the best for you.
We have used Peggy Smith as our realtor four times now-- two home sales and two home purchases. All four of those experiences have been positive for us and I'm happy to give Peggy my highest recommendation. She knows the market extremely well, she does comprehensive research, she listens to the requests/concerns/desires of her clients and is knowledgeable in all things home related (including recognizing remodeling potential, staging a home for successful sale, identifying the most profitable fi...see more
We have only the deepest gratitude and appreciation for the outstanding job Peggy Smith did in selling out condo. She is a top notch realtor, with a wealth of experience, a very professional knowledge of the market, and a keen eye for what needs to be done to ready a property both for selling and to sell well. At every turn we found her to be kind, honest, ethical, patient, and response to our questions and concerns, and a true pleasure to work with.
We followed Peggy's advice to the letter ...see more
This was our second time working with Peggy Smith and it was even better than the first. Peggy has such a great sense of the market and timing and we always know that we are in good hands.
Peggy is a straight shooter who will always give you an honest, informed opinion. She was there whenever we had any questions, doubts, fears or concerns and was also available to give us advice, perspective and encouragement. We ended up pursuing a short sale and Peggy successfully guided us through the pro...see more
When recently I became interested in a specific property which had caught my attention, I first turned to an excellent and trusted agent, Kathy Bowman, whom had previously helped friends with home purchases. Kathy had just retired, and so could not take on the task. Rather, Kathy provided a very strong recommendation of Peggy Smith, for which I am now really grateful to both Kathy and Peggy.
From our first meeting Peggy showed a clear and firm grasp of the entire process, and provided me usef...see more
Peggy Smith helped me successfully negotiate a condo purchase in 2004 and a house purchase in 2011. During both transactions, she was knowledgeable; answered all of my (hundreds) of questions in language I could easily understand; responded immediately; and held my hand when needed. She has a warm and friendly personality, and she worked cooperatively and ethnically with all of the people involved in the transactions. However, she is also a savvy negotiator and can easily take a strong stance wh...see more
It was such a pleasure working with such a professional like Peggy. Peggy was very patient with us and wanted to make sure we got exactly what we were looking for... Even if it took 1 1/2 years!
Her knowledge and confidence were appreciated in a very exciting yet scary process.
Peggy had great suggestions for us when selling our home. She has a great ability to get a house up and show it to sell.
Last month, Peggy Smith, my real estate agent, helped me sell my condo within 5 days of it being on the market. This was the second time I worked with Peggy and just like the first time, she had all of the details covered. Fifteen years ago, Peggy helped me buy my first home in Ballard, and it turned out to be a great investment. Like the last time we worked together, when we met to talk about selling my home, she had done her homework. She was able to give me advice on the best selling price ba...see more
Peggy Smith found my first house for me in Ballard in the mid 90s; a fixer upper right in my price range. It turned out to be a very good value and she helped me sell it later at a nice profit. Peggy found my second house for me in 2000 and we were able to get in at a good price in a competitive market. In both purchases, she came in with the right bid, the right narrative, and the best timing to close the deal quickly.
I recently sold my second home through Lake Realty and relied on Peggy c...see more
We recently decided to sell my parents' home after 50+ years of memories. Along with the memories were a lot of deferred maintenance and lack of updating. We contacted Peggy Smith about helping us with the sale.
Her expertise kicked in quickly. Being a 1950's rambler, it required a special eye to know what to updated and what to let be. Peggy went through the house and suggested what we should do to make it market ready. Lots of cleaning out, removing of dated fittings/fixtures, removal of ca...see more
I was very happy with Peggy's help in selling my condo. She was very understanding and patient while also very savvy about the way the market looked and getting me the best deal. I sincerely believe that I would never have been able to sell my place as fast or get as much as I did without her. I told my friends about all the things she did to make the sale a success and they all said, "Wow, that's unusual. You found a great realtor!"
One of the nicest things was that Peggy kept me informed o...see more
I'm so happy I had the opportunity to work with you again, and I want to thank you for the advice and support you gave me. You are an outstanding realtor and I will highly recommend you to my friends. I wish the best for you.
When we met Peggy Smith we were immediately impressed by her professional attitude. She told us what we needed to do to "show" our condo-- what stuff needed to "go!"
Pictures of condo were arranged, brochures, etc., listing-- all very quickly. Pictures were great!
Peggy must have scheduled 2-3 Sunday open houses with herself there or real estate professionals from Lake Realty.
We sold our condo within about a month to a buyer offering full price. We were so pleased!
The listing a...see more
I had the wonderful opportunity to work with... Peggy Smith.
Peggy was recommended by serveral neighbors who described her as-- easy to work with, down to earth, incredibly detained and extremely efficent. I can tell you she is all of that and so much more.
The reason we chose Peggy was her willingness to work with us to get the best price for mother's home... From that moment we picked Peggy, she proceeded to help us pick some wonderful updated colors, shopped for new hardware for the ki...see more
Peggy Smith helped me find and purchase my first home! Her professional manner in all things, her incredible knowledge of homes and waht to look out for, and especially her familiarity with the Seattle housing market (and ...the neighborhoods in North Seattle), and her many great contacts and resources helped me feel confident and optimistic throughout the entire process. Peggy was supportive when I needed it and was always easy to reach when I had questions. She was constantly on the lookout fo...see more
My experience with Peggy as my real estate agent in the purchase of my new house in Broadview was extremely positive. Not only did we find the house of my dreams after searching for years with other agents to no avail,but she saw me through the purchase itself and arrangements with the sellers so that the details of the sale were not burdensome. As well, Peggy helped me find a wonderful contractor who also has been amazingly helpful. I'm sure there are many good things I have left out but my pur...see more
Just a short note to say a big thank you for managing our house whilst we are in Australia. We honestly could not have gotten to this stage without your focus and attention to detail on our property. We are so happy to have you as our agent! See you soon and hoping for a quick, painless sale.
