Peggy specializes in all types of Stowe Vermont real estate including: commercial properties, land developments, single family homes and condos in Stowe and the surrounding communities. No property is too large or too small for Peggy.

The challenge of Stowe real estate market is what drives her. "Everyday brings a new challenge. How to market property, how to sell it, how to meet the needs of customers and clients. Everyday is an education. Especially here in Stowe, Vermont, real estate is never the same, laws change, trends change, markets change. Luckily I am a creative person who likes change. I am always working outside the box, looking at all aspects of a property. No wonder I hated coloring books, I could never stay within the lines. So call me, you will enjoy the experience and I promise to stay within the lines when I am driving you around."
