"I appreciate all Peggy did for us as we worked our way through settling my dad's estate. It was certainly a learning process for me and my sisters. I could always trust she had our best interests at heart and would provide us with expert guidance whenever we asked. She was always responsive and quick with answers and showings."

"I was quite pleased to work with Peggy Brockhaus during the process of selling the three-flat I owned at 3818 N. Kenneth Avenue. Peggy provided great professional guidance during the course of my transaction, and quickly brought the property under contract. I highly recommend her services to all buyers and sellers of real estate in the Old Irving Park neighborhood."

"Peggy has helped me purchase two homes, one of which was my first. She has always made me feel at ease, informed, supported and with my best interest in mind. With the stressful process of home purchase, and now selling a condo, Peggy has helped put me at ease with her professional approach and honest advice. I’ve always felt I’m in good hands with Peggy by my side, and I would definitely recommend her to my family and friends!"

"Peggy, thank you for the great job you did selling the house we lived in for the last 38 years in Old Irving. All the work you provided, from home preparations, to staging, to professional photos and tours was invaluable. Your time and diligent follow up was much appreciated. Thank you again, and we have highly recommended you to our friends and neighbors."

"Peggy Brockhaus is an outgoing, friendly and savvy professional who knows the Old Irving Park area. Peggy gave me great suggestions and guidance to ready my home for sale. She was available for the slightest questions and once ready, photographed my home so beautiful, I thought twice about selling. Her advice during the bidding sales process was invaluable and her guidance through closing much appreciated. I cant image having sold my house with anyone else."

"As a first time home buyer, I had many questions and wasn't exactly sure how the process went. Peggy helped me every step of the way! After looking through a few different places, she finally found the one for me. Peggy is so great and was very throughough during all of the walk throughs and viewings, I couldn't have done it without her! She also attended my closing and gifted me with a hand painted, framed photo. Thank you so much for everything, Peggy!"

"When I decided to sell my house I wanted a realtor that knew the neighborhood well. Peggy is a long time resident of Old Irving and has extensive knowledge of the area. I was very pleased that my house sold in one day and Peggy received multiple offers!"

"My husband and I are pleased to take the opportunity to recommend Peggy Brockhaus as an excellent Realtor.We chose Peggy to sell our home because of her knowledge of Chicago's hot markets and her extensive experience in real estate sales and renovation.We appreciated the fact that Peggy had a lot experience in renovating property. We had done a ton of work to our home, and weknew that she really appreciated all that our home had to offer and how to sell it. Peggy's professionalism, confidence and upbeat personality made the whole process less stressful and seamless. Peggy did a great job in marketing, pricing and showcasing our home and it sold in two weeks!"

"Peggy is professional, efficient and communicates well. She analyzed the neighborhood, which is her own, and the general market to help list a reasonable price for the property. I appreciate her honesty."

"We couldnt have asked for a better realtor than Peggy Brockhaus. Her extreme professionalism and attention to detail were beyond our expectations. From the moment we met Peggy, she got to work to sell our house! We were moving from the city to the suburbs to be closer to my parents and Peggys suggestions to get it sold were right on and made it happen quickly. She creatively came up with ideas to help make our house look even better. Peggy was present for every showing and was always available to us for questions. She would always call us after a showing and open house to give us feedback on how it went. Before we knew it, our house was sold at the price that we wanted! I would most definitely recommend Peggy for all of your real estate needs. You will not be disappointed!"

"Peggy was great -- she was willing to work at our speed and at our preferred level of involvement. She was our advocate when needed, and really helped us navigate the real estate waters as first time buyers. Thanks for everything, Peggy!"

"I highly recommend Peggy to potential purchases or sellers in Chicago. She was incredibly patient, responsive, and attentive to our home buying needs and her knowledge of the Chicago real estate market helped us get a house we love at a fair price."

"Peggy wasn't just our broker but our friend. She guided us through a tough, emotional process and got us the best price for our home. She was our advocate at all times. We would recommend her highly to anyone considering selling or purchasing a home."

"From past real estate transactions, I have learned the importance of hiring the best professional you can find, and to spend a little time to research the real estate sales people to come up with someone who has all the tools. Peggy Brockhaus really, really qualifies. What Peggy especially has, which only the best of the best have, is a vision of her real estate business model. She is ready to respond to any situation and can anticipate most. She really knows what she is doing.For me personally, Peggy priced my house to sell at a point that was on the high end of my researched expectations, and was considerably higher than cited by another honest and successful realtor. Peggy then proceeded to sell my house for asking price immediately, with no market time after first showing. She understands pricing and how the psychology of a sale works. I know from previous painful personal experience about working with a realtor that does not do a good job, as well as being aware by paying attention to the local market, of the ratio of hits (sales which work for the seller) to misses [long market time which cost(s) the seller] with good real estate salespeople versus very superior real estate sales people like Peggy. Peggy has more success than a basic good real estate salesperson, because she has a complete vision of the whole process, and has put together the team and the contacts she needs to realize that vision, working from that vision.From initial offer to closing on the original agreed upon date, everything went smoothly. I am a very satisfied customer."

"We tried to sell the house on our own for approximately 70 days with puzzling results. With no lack of activity, yet no offers, you came along bringing a renewed energy and breath of confidence. The end result was a full price offer in a very short timewhen other Realtors said too much, you said not enough. This way of thinking meant all the difference for us."

"I know in the world of real estate, deals do not often go smoothly, which is why being part of a team effort with experienced (and friendly!) professionals like you can be so refreshing."

"You said you were only doing your jobWell, the world would be a much nicer and efficient place if everyone were only doing your job in the same way you do."

"Hopefully, it will be a good, long time (if ever) before we need a new house, but we will certainly be recommending you to our friends and family."

"I am familiar with Peggy Brockhaus work as a real estate agent and have found her to be a dedicated, hardworking professional (who is) knowledgeable about the Chicago market."

"I am continually impressed by Peggys knowledge of real estate: in her understanding and explanations of markets (current trends and pricing), neighborhoods, new construction, rehab and repair issues and financing issues. Peggy is an intent listener, responsive to the individual needs of her clients, an advocate of her clients position with others, organized and professional in all respects. Peggy makes what can be an overwhelming process more manageable, more convenient, more understandable and less stressful."

"From the first step, market analysis, where Peggy recognized the special features of our historic house and found the right price for it, to the end, Peggy did a super job. She was always enthusiastic and willing to work hardShe is a good businesswoman with a warm heart- both of which are important when selling a home."

"I cannot thank you enough for your wonderful efforts, the least of which was selling the house in under 30 days. I especially appreciate your personal touch and the time you gave me as an individual through the process"

"I believe the ability to be a team player and maintain a sense of humor is critical. Peggy has this ability. In fact, perhaps her greatest strength is her `people skills'."

"I consider Peggy to be of the highest character and integrity."

"I have worked with and known Peggy for over 20 years. Peggy is one of those rare individuals who has immense creativity and foresight, matched with common sense, intelligence and a strong work ethic. She is an excellent sales-woman."

"I found her enthusiastic, reliable, dependable and honest in her judgment."

"Peggy is a dedicated professional who pays attention to details. She wont disappoint you."

"Peggy is knowledgeable, honest and above all patient. She understood and internalized my needs and wouldnt settle for less. She helped me find my dream home!"
