A Louisiana native, Peggy Jennings was drawn to North Carolina by its stately Appalachian Mountains and their wild river passes. She moved temporarily to the western edge of the state to work for a spell at an outdoor center but stayed, selling real estate in the cozy mountain town of Bryson City for the better part of a decade. In 2014, her husband accepted a job as a nurse at UNC. Since moving to the Triangle, Peggy has constantly explored and studied the neighborhoods and little towns of the Triangle, knowing that her commitment to her clients means paying attention to the changes in the market and finding the area’s best properties. Whether working with first-time buyers, finding a larger home for growing families, or helping someone relocate to the area, she enjoys working with buyers to find not only what they need now but also what they may need in the future. And when working with sellers, she revels in the pre-listing process, like finding efficient ways to make a house shine for prospective buyers.
Peggy is an avid runner who races at least one marathon and several half marathons a year, a hobby she shares with her husband and their two children. Her children play competitive soccer and study violin in the area, so she understands the landscape for parents who are new to the area. She is eager to share what she knows. “I love making lists of little details that people want in their home,” Peggy says, “and scratching them off. It’s so rewarding.”
