" Peggy helped us sell our house with impeccable integrity and thorough professional knowledge of sales, marketing trends, and all pertinent background information like codes, national policy, building conditions, roster of helpful contractors. She always went above and beyond her professional responsibilities as we were selling the house from out of state.

We have worked with several other real estate brokers, Peggy was the best. "

" We absolutely loved working with Peggy. She was great at preparing us for market and walking through each step for what to expect. She helped us understand market response and we quickly pivoted which resulted in multiple offers in only a few days, and under contract and closed in less than 30 days! I never felt stressed and we are SO happy with our choice to have her represent our sale. We would recommend her to anyone looking for an amazing hands-on realtor who goes above and beyond for her clients! "

At the same time I appreciated her understanding of my personal goals and sense of timing. She was always available to talk through the unpredictable turns and twists of the road to closure. Always honest, she was also very diplomatic. We were a team, and I really appreciated that. "

" Peggy goes above and beyond while maintaining an unparalleled level of integrity in today's real estate world. Peggy is by far the best agent I have had the pleasure to work with. We purchased a home in a seller's market competing against eight offers; not only did I feel comfortable throughout the process, but I knew my agent had my and my family's best interests the entire time. We couldn't be happier with our choice to work with Peggy. "

" We have nothing but great things to say about working with Peggy and we will recommend her to everyone who plans to buy/sell in the future. She not only educated us about the buying process, but about home ownership as well. As first time buyers in a competitive market, buying a house was very intimidating. Peggy explained how to take care of each particular house that we saw so there would be no surprises later on. We learned a lot more than we expected and are very grateful for it. We knew right away that we were working with someone who had our best interests first, and we could not be happier with the home we ended up. "

" Peggy recently helped us purchase and sell. Peggy utilized the private market to list and sell our home, and the experience was great. We only had a few showings and she helped us to get great terms on the sale. She also helped us purchase our new home. We were picky and the market is tough, but Peggy was able to get us into houses right when they hit the market and helped us prepare an offer that was attractive enough to win us our new home. Peggy is very knowledgeable about the Fox Valley and has great people skills. She is always there if you have questions and provides valuable insight into neighborhoods, homes, and the market as a whole. I would recommend Peggy for anyone looking to buy or sell. She is also a great person! "

" Peggy Cain sold our house in February of 2019. We relocated out of state, so the planning process to move was long term. In July of 2018, Peggy performed an analysis of the neighborhood. She came to our house to sit down and go over the analysis, then she toured the house and gave us advice on what to change prior to listing. She also took exterior photos as we wanted to be able to showcase the backyard while it was green and snowless! Peggy stayed in touch with us throughout the winter and constantly watched the market in our area. She came back to our home in January of 2019 and went over every detail with us. She told us what the market had been doing, and offered her expertise. We came to a mutual decision on what price to list our home at, and Peggy continued to study the market. Anytime we needed to chat with her, she returned our call. We found her to be very accessible. Our house sold in less than 2 days on the market, and we believe that is due to Peggy’s hard work, diligence, and expertise. She previously helped me purchase a home and sell the same home, so this was my third time working with her and I would continue to work with her if I was still in the area. Peggy Cain goes above and beyond in her work, and no one can wrong with hiring her! "

" Peggy Cain is by far the BEST realtor we have ever worked with. Having purchased several homes in various locations, we are experienced buyers. Peggy goes out of her way to make you feel that you are her number one priority (although in reality she is juggling many customers at the same time)! She will give you the time you needed to find the right home. She listens to your needs and then diligently sorts through everything on the market. We had some very specific house qualifications and she never questioned or pushed us. She has the highest integrity and Peggy is extremely knowledgable about the real estate market in the various towns. She will go to the nth degree to find what you want and will answer any question that is asked. She will work with you on your time schedules to see houses and we think she never sleeps! She is definitely high energy! We don't know how she works the days and hours that she does. When you are ready to buy Peggy can make excellent references on mortgage people, building inspectors and any special tradesmen that you may need to consult. We highly recommend her to anyone who wants to work with a wonderful realtor and wants to have a good experience in home buying. As we settle in our new home, she is still helping us with questions and recommendations when we ask. She is AMAZING!! "

" My finance and I could not be happier with our experience with Peggy! Besides being one of the big-hearted and kindest people I have met, her wealth of knowledge and experience in the real estate market is without compare. Buying a house can be quite overwhelming, esp with contracts, inspections, and all the fine print involved, but she explained everything along the way and I felt 1000% confident through the process. It took us quite a while to find the right house for us and she was patient and honest throughout. Since she is experienced, she knows what is reasonable in negotiation, and will not let her clients be taken advantage of in the process. She is the type of person that truly cares about her clients...she even helped organize the purchase of our house while on vacation! Since she troubleshoots, is organized, and pre-plans, the home buying process couldn't have been more smooth! In addition, she has great recommendations in help along the way (inspectors, lawyers, financers) who were all fantastic! I am forever grateful to her for all her help and miss spending time with her! "

" It is with great pleasure that I give my Realtor, Peggy Cain, a heartfelt referral. If I could choose one word to describe my home buying experience with Peggy it would have to be AMAZING!!! As a first time home buyer I was extremely nervous about the process of choosing a Realtor that had time for me and that understood my needs. After contacting several Realtors Peggy was authentic and made me feel so comfortable. Peggy puts her clients first. She consistently communicated with me. She was also able to put me in contact with her business colleagues that made my process as simple as 123. Throughout my search process Peggy consistently suggested that I needed to be comfortable with the home I choose. I never felt rushed or as if she was trying to make a sale. I can honestly say 7 months later that I am so happy that Peggy was my Realtor and I will choose her again for my next purchase. My puppy and I would like to Thank you from the bottom of our heart Peggy."
        Katrina and Coco Helped me buy a home

"My husband and I started working with Peggy last fall. We were looking for our first house and didn't really know where to start. Peggy was amazing throughout the process, start to finish. She is great at explaining every step, she always takes time to answer any questions we have, she would always follow up with a call or email if she knew we would be receiving paperwork from the lender or lawyers and thought we might have questions, she showed us wide variety of homes so we could get a feel for the market and find what we did and didn't like. The list goes on and on. Peggy has a great network of contacts for every step. If you have your own lender, lawyer, homeowner's insurance provider, home inspector, etc, that's great. If you don't, Peggy knows all the best people for the job. We were happy with every suggestion we took. Using her network made the process of buying a home far, far easier than we could have ever imagined. It's easy to see that Peggy likes her job and likes getting people into a house they are going to love. The process was fun and very low stress. We couldn't be happier with our home and I highly recommend Peggy to anyone who is in the market. "
        Stacey Parker Helped me buy a home

" I can't say enough about Peggy. I worked with her on the purchase of my first home in 2001 and everything when so swimmingly. Life changed, baby, divorce, short sale and it was time to look for another house. at first we were just looking and then thing became serious. I was able to get all my financials in order and the few houses we were going to see on a balmy Saturday in August all had contracts on them before our appointments. and we settled on looking at a few tiny homes and a couple that were well out of our price range. What they say is true...we walked into our home and, fell in love and blew off the other appointments to get the paperwork in. She is meticulous, calming and fierce. Everything went so smoothly and on time. Having known Peggy for close to 20 years she can read her clients. Sadly (most HAPPILY) I think this is my forever home. It was move in ready and we only updated the few things we thought were cosmetic as well as adding a fence (which she even pulled city specs for...). Can't say enough about her but would recommend her to anyone, she really took the stress out of everything."
        Leah Helped me buy a home

" Just over 14 years ago I started looking for my first house and Peggy Cain was referred to me. After looking around and finally deciding on the house to purchase back then she offered a lot of insight and knowledge with what to do, buying ones first house can be an intimidating adventure. Since then she has also helped friends and family members with all aspects of real state form buying and selling. Over the past few years we have been looking into up-sizing and there was no question on who to call to handle the transaction for us. This time we were being a little picky on what we were looking for and over the past two years we looked at a handful of houses where Peggy had no issue on getting something set up on a moment’s notice and taking us to see the houses that ended up not appealing to us then we would wait and a few months later another house would come up on the market and we would not be interested. Then finally it happened! Within 3 days of house being put on the market she had the contract in hand ready for us to sign, and at the same time she had a few contacts for the home inspections for us to review! During the time between the contracts being signed and closing Peggy kept everyone from, myself, the sellers, lawyers, and the mortgage officers informed of everything that was happening so that the closing would go, and did go smoothly. During the closing process I mentioned to Peggy that I wanted to turn our existing house into an investment property, and she said to let her know when I was ready to put the old house up for rent. Once I mentioned that we were ready for rental she handled it quickly and it was listed within a few days of the staging. Within two weeks we had a signed lease and the tenants where moving in. I would recommend Peggy Cain to anyone that needs a realtor that is very knowledgeable, quick thinking, quick to action and patient all at the same time! "

" Peggy recently sold our home in St. Charles and we could not be happier. Peggy always demonstrated great knowledge, expertise, and wonderful customer service. Peggy worked tirelessly to help us remotely while we lived in Florida to sell our home. She was completely accessible and available at all times to keep us informed and answer all of our questions. We really could not see working with anyone else on the purchase of a home and are so very fond of everything Peggy represents. She is the best at what she does and is such a wonderful, kind, knowledgeable person who takes her work very seriously. we would always recommend Peggy to help those looking for a property. you will find her extremely helpful! "
        Ana & Cary Cramer Helped me sell a home

" Peggy sold our home in St Charles and was an expert!!!! She was professional, kind, knowledgeable, and precise. she provided useful stats routinely and we were fully informed through the entire process. Peggy was accessible always and stayed in touch with all details. we felt entirely comfortable and confident in Peggy throughout the process. Peggy is the best in so many areas and we could not be happier with the outcome. Peggy made certain we were comfortable and informed during the sale and we would certainly recommend Peggy for your needs. There simply is no one better than Peggy. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts Peggy!! "

" I have the best experience with Peggy in finding my new home. Being a first time home buyer, she work with diligence, patience, understanding and a lot of considerations. Highly recommended. Excellent with 5 star rating. "
        Hector Cruzado Helped me buy a home

" Peggy was awesome, she answered every question we had, guided us through our house purchase. Peggy went above and beyond. Would recommend Peggy to everyone. "
        Chernandy Helped me buy a home

" I couldn't have dreamed up a better realtor. She is both smart and ethical. . . and fun to spend time with. I never doubted her recommendations. She has a real gift for engaging people so if she shows your house, know that she will help both the children as well as the adults see how the house might work for them. "
        Jill Westberg Helped me sell a home

" Our daughter Caitlyn and son-in-law Joe worked with Peggy to secure a rental home in St. Charles in 2010. They utilized Peggy's services again to help them find the right home to purchase in St. Charles the very next year. They recommended her to my wife Sue and I early in 2014 and Peggy worked with us in finding our home which we closed on in late June'14. If I were forced to select one word to describe Peggy it would be "professional". She listens extremely well to what your needs and desires are, which, having been in sales my working life, I value highly. She's very knowledgeable about the market and housing in general and when she opined about something, it was invariably useful. She insists you call her at any time to arrange for a showing and always encourages you to look at as many houses as you can as a better decision will likely be the result. This was nice as we never felt like we were "bothering" her. Another thing I really liked is how promptly she responded to calls, texts, emails.......everything. I found this VERY satisfying and reassuring. She was always consistent, straightforward, and pleasant.You could tell Peggy loves her work. It shows. By the way, on September 18th, Peggy was our youngest daughter's realtor as she and her husband, Ryan took ownership of THEIR new home in St. Charles! At one point, they were unable to meet to get a estimate for some work that needed to be done. Peggy met with the man instead to help them out. ( She brought over some homemade scones for us as we were starting to paint!) I highly recommend Peggy Cain! "

" My husbands and I had a very complex situation we had a deal gone bad before I worked with Peggy due to a bad lender and bad realtor. I met peggy when I ran out my previous realtors office. I found Peggy on trulia she spend 45mins on the phone who does that? Peggy does! we took it from there. Peggy is very a professional realtor. I love the way she worked with us she found us Eric lender at MWB and Dave home inspector I greatly appriciate all of them all their hard work. Peggy become a very special person to our family she wasn't just our realtor she became a friend. she seen us as people not just as clients she will keep us updated with everything even when she was on vacation. I could I honestly said buying this house was one amazing journey thank you Peggy for all your hard work your an amazing realtor and a wonderful human being. We will never forget what you and everyone that help did for us I see every morning when I walk in to my kids room when we have dinners together in our home. I highly recommend Peggy she's the best!!

" My Husband and I have worked with Peggy two times now. First, to find a townhome to rent last year and the second to find and buy our dream home in May of 2014. Peggy was always very quick to respond to emails, calls or texts. Her knowledge of the fox valley area concerning schools, townships, our options on if we wanted to build etc was always very helpful. You can tell she has been working in real estate a long time and knows what she is doing. Once my husband and I had been looking at homes for a few months Peggy took the initiative to speak up and let us know when a home we wanted to go see was similar to a lot of homes we had already seen and she could tell they were not what we were looking for. I really appreciated her honesty and knowing what was in our best interest. After we found our home Peggy explained every detail to us in our offer and contract making sure we fully understood and that the contract included everything we wanted. Peggy made sure the entire home buying process was quick, easy and she took very good care of us. "
        Melisa Korf Helped me buy a home

" First home purchase spring 2014 Peggy was extremely helpful, especially given that this was our first home purchase, and we were rather uneducated in the real estate world. We jumped around to several different towns and cities within Dupage, Kendall, and Kane counties, Peggy was very patient with us as we asked to view many homes. "

" My experience working with Peggy starting with getting a call back immediately. Walking us through every step of buying our house. I would and have recommended Peggy Cain if you are looking to buy your dream house. "

" I worked with Peggy when purchasing my home this summer - and I had a great experience! It was my first home purchase, and she was extremely helpful before, during, and after the sale. I strongly recommend Peggy and I hope she'll help you like she helped me! "
        andrewroberkrause Helped me buy a home

" "We recently purchased our first home. Peggy worked closely with us every step of the way and made the process as seamless as possible. She was always very easy to reach and accommodating of our schedule when setting up showings and other appointments later on. Throughout the process, Peggy made sure to explain each step to us and thoroughly answered our many questions, which helped us feel more prepared to both buy and own a home. Peggy went above and beyond or expectations and we really felt like she was on our side. She was an invaluable ally and we are very grateful that she was there to lead us through every turn. We highly recommend Peggy to anyone looking to buy a home! "
        Ellen & Ryan Johnson Helped me buy a home

" My husband and I had a very complex situation that I never expected any realtor to be able to provide answers and/or help steer us in the right direction. We wanted to buy a home but didn't have a definitive timeline for that to happen. Peggy was able to provide ideas and point us toward the right person that was able to help make our move happen. It took 2 years, and Peggy was patient and readily available for questions, to take us to look at homes, and anything else that we needed help with. We moved into the perfect home for us 3 weeks ago that fulfilled just about all specific needs we had on our list. We are continuing our relationship with Peggy as we sell the home we just moved from. I would HIGHLY recommend Peggy to buy, sell or rent your home. "
        Deanna Sader Helped me buy a home

" When my wife and I decided to start looking for our first home, we were completely in the dark on how the whole process worked. So when looking for an agent, we wanted someone who not only had great reviews but also a showed a proven career of helping first time home buyers. Peggy was exactly the person we were looking for and made the entire process a breeze. She helped us navigate every step of the way and rallied together her dream team of close/frequently used vendors to facilitate our loan, home inspection and legal process. Her knowledge about each of the homes we visited was extremely robust as she seemingly had insight to every home on every street. She also shared great information about the plant life at each house which helped us visualize what the homes could look like at different points in the year. Peggy very quickly had an understanding on what we were looking for which helped us hone in on perfect home the first day we went out looking. My wife and I are absolutely in love with our little bungalow home and are so thankful we had someone like Peggy to get us here. We've referred many friends and acquaintances to Peggy and only have the best things to say about her. "
        AndyKenney1 Helped me buy a home

" Peggy was wonderful to work with. She was accommodating, patient, friendly and knowledgeable. I work full-time, as does my husband. We also have a four year old son, and she was very flexible when scheduling showing times. She was also patient when we brought our little one with us, and even worked during her vacation to keep our home purchase moving along. In addition, Peggy is a very nice person and it was a pleasure working with her. I would recommend Peggy to any prospective home buyers. "
        User 2090446 Helped me buy a home

" Peggy was extremely professional. We feel she truly went to bat for us and was willing to think outside the box to get us the best possible deal. She was very honest and knows her market area. I highly recommend Peggy! "
        Meredithm30 Helped me buy a home

" Buying a home can be one of the most memorable times in a person life. One goes through a gamut of emotions, highs and lows, while trying to not second guess every decision that you made along the way. From the onset, you have so many things outlined in your mind of your "wants" and by the end it is amazing what stands out as the most important and the decision making criteria. Working in sales myself, I know how many businesses operate. And, therefore, have little tolerance for high pressure sales people who do not take the time to identify with the needs of their clients and want to tell them how they are rated #1, etc to win the business. Since I was turned off by some of the realtors I came in to contact with, I decided to research houses on my own through search engines such as Trulia. On this site, I came across Peggy Cain. We connected quickly because she let me "find" my dream home the way I wanted to do it, on my timeline not hers. She didn't push but rather asked questions to understand better, she utilized my time wisely weeding down house suggestions based on previous selections, and she let me walk away from buying a house twice when I needed to. She was in it for me, not for anything else. Having little to no experience in this process, Peggy walked me through all aspects of the home buying process. She provided recommendations and then repeated herself again on the home buying process. And, then again to ensure a smooth process throughout. She was extremely knowledgeable about the neighborhoods I was looking at, highlighting both the pros and cons. Peggy takes personal satisfaction is finding her clients their dream home. She cares and still months after the transaction on my house was completed, I still can reach out if I need assistance or a question. I look at Peggy as a friend now rather than an agent. "
        Kat Corden Helped me buy a home

" My husband and I took close to two years to find "the house". Peggy Cain was patient, knowledgeable and professional throughout our search. She was concerned in helping us find the best value which was exactly what we were searching for. Peggy was always available to answer our questions. She was always available to schedule tours of potential houses after just seeing the pictures or new listings. She was always available to work with our crazy schedules even if that meant meeting us on weekends or in the evenings. Once we were ready to make an offer on a house, she was invaluable in helping prepare and schedule inspections. She was very efficient in organizing a quick closing. The entire process was seamless. Peggy Cain was a pleasure to work with. She made buying a house a positive experience. With her help and guidance, we managed to purchase our beautiful home and couldn't be happier. "
        Robin Dibble Helped me buy a home

"Peggy Cain was very helpful in finding our home. Our home search was very stressful because we had a short time to look for one and we thank Peggy because she was very patient and helpful through this process."
        Maria Acevedo Helped me buy a home

"My wife and I have actually worked with Peggy on two separate real estate transactions. We first moved to the area about 18 months ago and were looking for a single family home to lease. We contacted Peggy via an online listing, and she reached out to me immediately. She listened to exactly what we were looking for and set up showings accordingly. On one occasion my wife and I were looking at listings on a Saturday night, and a new one was just made available. We contacted Peggy that evening and she cleared her schedule and made a showing the following day. We were very impressed with that level of responsiveness. That was only the beginning. The rest of the leasing process was seamless, and much of that is a credit to Peggy. The following year my wife and I decided we wanted to purchase a home. After our initial experience with Peggy, we knew that we weren't going to consider anyone else to be our realtor. Going into the home buying process, we didn't quite know what we wanted. We had ideas but really weren't sure. In order for us to truly realize what we wanted, we had to see a lot of homes. Peggy was very patient throughout this process. She was always updating us on new properties available. Peggy gave up many weekend days to work with us and was always enthusiastic. We never felt rushed, and both my wife and I really appreciated that. After deciding on the perfect house, Peggy was excellent throughout the entire process. From the initial negotiation to the final closing, Peggy was with us every step of the way. The process would not have gone as smooth as it did without the help of Peggy. She is always looking out for her clients' best interests. Thank you for your help and expertise. We will refer all our friends and family to you."
        Matt and Donna Helped us buy a home

"Peggy Cain is an outstanding realtor. She is very knowledgeable about the area and all aspects of a home's systems (plumbing, electrical, well & septic, etc). She is only interested in finding the best property for her clients. She worked with us over several months in order to find us the right home in the right location at the right price. We found her to be very personable and enthusiastic about meeting our needs. She was very accommodating to our schedules since we were living in another state and was able to coordinate many showings with very little notice. Peggy was recommended by our daughter who she helped find a rental apartment. We would recommend Peggy to anyone trying to buy or sell a home. "
        Martha Thompson Helped me buy a home

"I would 100% recommend Peggy. We met her at an open house, and she impressed us from the start. We asked her if she would show us some other houses. We looked in the fall and then decided to put a hold on our search until the following spring. She was patient, flexible, and hard working. She made it convenient for us and was able to work around our busy schedule. She was very knowledgeable about the process and had great people to recommend for all other aspects of the home buying process. We are very happy in our new home. "
        Kathryn Helped me buy a home

"I was looking for a house for 2 years. I already had one realtor quit on me and I had fired another realtor. So when I was introduced to Peggy I was skeptical. My attitude changed after Peggy showed me a couple listings. I could tell she was listening to me. Peggy was very knowledgeable about the listings shown to me. Peggy would go where I wanted to look and showed me everything in my price range. If I saw something I had to see right away, Peggy would get me access to the house as soon as possible. After working with Peggy for a couple months I bought my house. I am very happy with my new house. Thank you Peggy!!! "

"I highly recommend Peggy. She helped me and my husband a lot. Especially that we are new with home buying, she made us feel comfortable and secure that we are going to find what we are looking for in a home. She is very easy to talk to and she responds right away with my questions. She even helped me and recommended me the right people (Eric and Ernie) She did an awesome job! "
        Nikole Gasgonia Helped me buy a home

"Peggy responded to my inquiry on Trulia and she quickly became my realtor and also my friend. We looked at A LOT of houses and we had a great time doing it! In a short period of time, Peggy understood exactly what I was looking for in a home and helped me find it. She was always prompt in any requests I had and brought with her - great experience and wisdom! If I sell or buy a home in the future, I will definitely use Peggy. "
        harvest recovery Helped me buy a home

"When my husband and I started looking at houses we found Peggy on Trulia. After meeting her a couple of times we felt as if we were not only working with a knowledgeable professional, but a friend as well. She went above and beyond in our search in many ways. We trusted Peggy's opinion and expertise and she never lead us astray. Peggy was also very patient while we searched. I would recommend Peggy to anyone who is looking to buy or sell a house, and we would love to work with her again in the future. Thank you so much Peggy for all your help! "

"Peggy is awesome, and helped me find a charming home in a great family neighborhood. She was very good about keeping in touch, and so knowledgeable about the Tri-Cities area (Batavia, Geneva, St. Charles). Peggy went above and beyond the call of duty to hook me up with volunteer opportunities she knew I was interested in, and provided me with all sorts of useful information about the area. It is easy to tell that Peggy is passionate about the Tri-Cities area, and that passion is reflected in her professionalism and dedication. Thanks, Peggy! My new home is wonderful! "

"Being a first time home buyer can be rather daunting but Peggy did a great job guiding us through the whole thing. She was so patient, knowledgeable, and taught us alot about the whole home buying process. Not only that, but she gave us great contacts to help us along the way. In the end, we found our dream home (thanks to Peggy) and the entire process was surprisingly smooth. We couldn't be happier! We were so happy and lucky to have worked with Peggy and would recommend her to anyone! "

" Peggy was an absolute gem of a realtor. She is extremely knowledgeable about pertinent home buying and selling detail as well as the neighborhoods we were interested in. She answered the phone on the first ring and/or called back soon thereafter. Her emails and texts were prompt and spot on. Her ability to listen and intercept our concerns and offer the right remedy the first time was so consistent that we almost started taking it for granted. We had experienced a frustrating delay in selling our property in Chicago and Peggy stepped up with solid resources that immediately resolved the issue and got things back on track. Even after post-posession, Peggy was kind enough to go out of her way to drop off guide periodicals that addressed our curious inquiry about what to do in the area and how to access community services. Take it from a psychologist... when it comes to such a major life change... Peggy is the best peace of mind out there. "
        The Cook Family Client, Buyer

" Peggy was fantastic. She only showed us homes that fit what we asked for and we found our dream home in 2 days. Then she helped us get it at the right price and stayed on top of all the details through closing. We're in the house now and happy to recommend Peggy to anyone. We'll definitely list with her when we are ready to sell! "
        M_fielding Client, Buyer

"Peggy has been extremely helpful and patient with us as we have been exploring the idea of moving. We would highly recommend her to others seeking a knowledgeable, personable, service-oriented real estate agent."
        Missjnet Client, Buyer

"Peggy assisted us with selling, then buying a home. She was wonderful to work with and very detail oriented. Peggy has a great personality and knows how to get the best answers for any questions/issues. Her advertising and listing skills is unmatched. I highly recommend her if you are in the market for selling or buying a home. Thank you Peggy! "
        Robert Goetz Client, Seller

"Peggy was such a pleasure to work with. We met her almost a year ago when our previous home sold faster than we expected and needed a rental right away. She found us a rental that suited our immediate needs and now that the lease was coming to an end we called her again to find us a home to purchase. She listened to all of out requirements in finding the right house. She then scheduled about 15 homes to see over a weekend and we found the perfect one. We put in an offer at the end of our 2nd day of looking, assisted us in getting our offer accepted and we closed 30 days later. We really appreciated her only showing us what fell into our requirements, never tried to oversell anything and didn't waste our time looking at homes that she knew we wouldn't like. Peggy went so far as to NOT show us any homes near trains, garbage dumps etc. knowing we wanted something quite and private. I would definitely recommend Peggy to anyone who needs to buy or sell. "
        l_fielding Client, Buyer

"Peggy is fantastic! We moved from Pittsburgh and she gave us great information about the market, schools and neighborhoods. We had a drama filled closing in Pittsburgh (which had nothing to do with her) and she never wavered. She is professional and quickly returns phone calls. We love our new house and neighborhood in Batavia. I highly recommend Peggy!"
        Vikib6 Client, Buyer

"It was truly a pleasure working with Peggy. Through the entire process she was always positive and supportive and went out of her way regularly to provide us the exceptional service we received. She was always there for us whether 7:00 am or 11:00 pm. She also provided excellent local contacts that helped us through the entire purchasing process.

Having moved almost a dozen times I can say that Peggy is one of the best and I would not hesitate for a second to recommend her to anyone moving to the area; she is a very capable and knowledgeable agent who genuinely cares for her clients. "

        ljbergie Client, Buyer

        beverlyk1 Real Estate Pro

"My wife and I faced the challenge of selecting a house in a matter of days. And we had two kids to deal with as well. Lucky for us we had Peggy to help us -- without her knowledge, patience and efficiency, I don't know if we would have been able to do it. Our schedule was densely packed, but Peggy is so calm and savvy that it was a pleasant experience. She took care of all the details, and patiently helped us figure out what we wanted. I highly recommend Peggy!"

"I have worked with Peggy on several properties purchases and rentals. She has excellent resources for buyers and renters to make the process go smoothly. Peggy has been in the Geneva, Batavia and St. Charles markets for years and really knows the ins and outs of the area. Plus, she is one the nicest and most honest people I have done business with. She does the extra effort to make my life easier in closing a house or renting to new tenants. She even helped me coordinate a huge trash removal that was required for one property. She is the best!"
        jlars Client, Buyer

"Peggy has been very kind, helpful, and professional during our experience to find our home. She consistently exceeded our expectations in what could have been a stressful time for us. She always has been quick to respond to our calls and questions."
        Aliannl Client, Buyer

"Peggy has given me the opportunity to work with her clients and her on numerous occasions in the past several years. She always gives her clients her very best effort in every aspect of the home purchase process. She is very personable, extremely knowledgeable, and handles herself in a very professional manner at all times. I would highly recommend Peggy as a advocate in the home-buying process."
        Dave Morgenroth Real Estate Pro

"Peggy and I were neighbors years ago. When I was planning a move, and looking for a house to rent, she helped me find something I am still thrilled with five years later! She conquered the mountainous paperwork with ease, always kept in touch and made this transition in my life easier. If you are looking for someone who genuinely cares about your well-being, than look no further. You've found her."
        jbshenko Friend

"Peggy has been unfailingly professional, compassionate, patient, thorough, and responsive! She made sure this experience was SEAMLESS. I can't sing her praises enough! We are ridiculously grateful!"
        Kharabella Client, Renter

        Anierrn Client, Buyer

"She is very good and knows how to sell a house. I would recommend her without any doubt. She is great at what she does."
        Karen.zambreno Client, Seller

"My experience with Peggy Cain was amazing. As a first-time home buyer I was very nervous about signing my life away on a house. Peggy explained each process as we went through it from what to expect when entering a house to what to expect at the formal closing. Peggy not only showed infinite patience for my picky style but also showed me houses that had exactly what I was looking for! She knows the market, knows the area, and is a pleasure to be around. She made my first home buying experience fun!"
        Diana S. Client Buyer

"Peggy was extremely professional in her meeting with us to determine the price for the Sugar Grove home. Peggy impressed us with her knowledge and we were excited about her marketing approach. Peggy was well-researched in her comparables and the state of the housing market. Peggy was very thorough and detailed with the required information she required to list our property. We signed the agreement and she had a sign on the property the day we requested to list. Her dedication to you as a client is awesome. Peggy took the best pictures for our home that emphasied the essential details that prospective buyers desire. Not only did Peggy have pictures for her website but she also has DVD’s for prospective clients.Peggy knows what will draw in prospective buyers. Peggys team were excellent at scheduling appointments and the feedback on the internet was great. Peggy is constant with her feedback, she informs you what is happening with your property. The experience of selling our property was stress-free as it can be when selling a house. We moved state and had no concerns leaving the house vacant, Peggy went above and beyond to give us peace of mind that the home was ok. We listed our property with Peggy in February 2009, when the housing economy was at its worst, yet because of Peggy’s knowledge of the market status she had us in a prime listing position so that we had a contract 8 weeks later . Peggy’s negotiating skills are an advantage for all who employ her services, Peggy negotiated full price, cash deal and as-is with a month closing, we couldn’t have been happier. I would recommend Peggy’s services to anyone selling a house in the area. – Victor and Ruth Boxall. "

About Peggy Cain

There are few more important decisions for an individual or family to make than buying a place to call home. Sometimes buying a home is a process of great urgency and for others there is no particular timeline. Maybe your move is a relocation or you’re upsizing, downsizing or moving into your first home. Maybe you need horse property! I am conscious of the needs of today’s buyer and am constantly adapting to everchanging requirements and situations to fit each unique individual.

I love homes; townhouses, detached homes, big or small and everything in between. Listing them is another facet of the business that I enjoy. We provide virtual tours for all of our listings and I am your photographer. I love photographing homes and sometimes even neighboring park areas if it will enhance your home listing. The point is that, once again, I customize my work to your home and your needs. Once the preliminary work is complete I work to make sure that your listing receives the broadest exposure possible. While we utilize print ads, almost all buyers spend time searching on the Internet before buying. Your home will have coverage on the Karen Douglas Realty website as well as on our own website, Real Estate on the Web. You will also appear on,,,, as well as a myriad of other websites and, of course, our MLS (Midwest Real Estate Data LLC -MRED). We have had inquires from as far away as China! That’s the power of the Internet and we know how to use it.
