We’ve bought a couple of homes over the years, and I must admit that dealing with them made the process much more manageable (and possibly even fun). What is normally a very draining process is balanced out by her contagious energy. She was very understanding and attentive to our needs. No matter how many times you go through this process, you'll always end up with a few challenges where questions may arise, and Mary made sure to get answers for all of them. In our unique case, we had a very tight timeline as we wanted to close on a location very shortly before we went on vacation, and Mary made what normally scared off most other Realtors to be possible. If you want someone to walk you through the whole process and will make sure all your needs are met, look no further. Or if you do decide to look further, only look a little bit further to her equally impressive partner...but then stop looking further after that.
Peggy is by far the most outstanding, hardworking, real estate professionals I have encountered, and I would not hesitate to hire her again or refer her to a friend. I knew she had the right expertise and tenacity, but I really came to appreciate her transaction management skills and just how savvy she is when it comes to selling a high-end home. Being a distance away, I relied on her heavily and appreciated every communication and the results of her hard work.
As a master of contract negotiations, she came up with the deal that was good for us and was not afraid to push back on the little (but important) things. Since our purchase, she has also helped us sell a rental. You could not find a more attentive and knowledgeable agent. Our relationship was so positive, we have become good friends. We are pleased to recommend Peggy to anyone looking to buy or sell a home. She is hands down the best in the business in our opinion.
I remember meeting Peggy years ago and was impressed by her professionalism. Every phone call was returned immediately, every question answered correctly, and once I found the right home, the entire process was simple. and smooth. She continues to be a down to earth friend and business consultant to me.
Mary helped my family and I manage a transition from Dubai, United Arab Emirates to Dublin, California. While it was a challenge to move internationally with two small children, Mary found a way to work on a schedule that fit my family's needs, provide my wife and me a holistic view of the options that met our decision criteria, and accommodate the challenge of a housing search with a 7 year old and a 2 year old along for the ride. She proved responsive, Insightful and Informed. Great people to lean on in our move who brought our family to our forever home.
Purchasing a home with Mary was both a professional and lucrative experience. In a hot Pleasanton market, I found a home and Mary's service was so swift and organized that I bought the house under asking price! The property needed a lot of updating, which definitely helped our negotiations. at the beginning of our home search, I knew that my criteria were challenging. Yet Mary's dedication and energy level never waned. She is amazing!!! I don't need another realtor in my address book - just "see Mary"!
We are so happy and grateful to Peggy Whalen for finding us our dream home – never thought it possible that the process could go so smoothly. We highly recommend Peggy for anyone looking to take the stress out of buying a home! It was a wonderful experience working with her and will continue to seek her guidance and knowledge in our real estate endeavors. We freely will be steering family and friends her way in the future.
Extremely courteous and really listened to our needs in preparing, listing, selling an closing our home. Mary was always very quick to respond to our questions and requests. If Mary didn't immediately have the answer to a question, she was able to quickly and accurately get a response back to us. I highly recommend Mary and have already given her a referral to a friend of mine looking to buy a home!
I cannot thank you enough for all your hard work, honesty and thoughtful communication when I was selling my parents home. I had never handled selling a home as a trustee and you calmed my fears and made the whole experience fun, easy and successful. You went above and beyond for me, and I know that I won't hesitate to recommend you to all my friends and family that are thinking of selling or buying.
Through her market knowledge and years of local experience, she understands the unique market dynamics in play at the time of each sale. As a result, she customized the market approach and strategies for each sale which included pricing, overall exposure through targeted marketing: the end result of her diligence and attention to detail were successful sales.
They were very responsive and helpful but most importantly they are kind and always cheerful. We would recommend them to anybody and we would hire them again. The best realtor team you can find!
Mary helped me with an out-of-state purchase of a home in the Bay Area, and I simply couldn’t have been happier with her level of service, friendliness, and caring. She also knows her stuff and goes the extra mile (or more…). I highly recommend Mary!
We were connected with Mary and Peggy when we were relocating to the Bay Area for a new job opportunity. They were a great resource in narrowing down what areas we were interested in as well as the right home for our needs. Their connections in the real estate community really helped us to negotiate an offer on the house we decided on, and their help has extended beyond our purchase with great referrals. We really want to thank them for all the help they gave us in searching for a home for our family and would recommend them to others.
