Peggy Jennings


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.”


Peggy is great! We’re first time homeowners, thanks to Peggy, and she walked us through every step of the house-buying process. She accompanied us on our house searching trips, providing valuable insight, and was available to meet with us or anyone who needed to look at the house, no matter the inconvenience. She gave us advice and suggestions, but never pushed us one way or the other. It was always our choice. When we had particular requests or requirements, she always worked hard to make sure that we got what we wanted. As we got toward closing, she was at the house regularly, even though it was a bit out of the way, because she didn’t want to leave anything to chance. Now that closing is over, we still have a few repairs to finish, and Peggy is still helping us get everything sorted out. Peggy’s positive energy and genuine care for her clients made the whole, stressful process less so. We’re so glad we chose her to guide us through this major life decision. We would wholeheartedly recommend her and will definitely return to her if we have any home buying or selling needs in the future.

Peggy is AMAZING! She has Energizer Bunny energy, makes calls, finds information, helped me spread mulch at the house I was selling, helped me clean. My house sold in 4 days. She also worked with us relentlessly to find the best house for us – even when it took several attempts to finally get the house. She listened and knew exactly what I was looking for. At one point, she mentioned another client, and I was like, “What?” With the amount of time and energy she spent with us, I didn’t even think she had any other clients.

Peggy Jennings is not only a superstar Real Estate Professional, she is a top notched person as well. Peggy recently sold a house for me during a very stressful, emotional time. Peggy went to great lengths to make sure every step of the process was easy. She certainly went above and beyond to provide every needed assistance to make sure the house was in perfect shape to come onto the market resulting in an offer and a quick sale, all within the first weeks the house was on the market. I cannot recommend Peggy more highly for how much extra energy she put into making sure that I was included in the process every step of the way. She constantly communicated with me whether it was comments from prospective buyers after an Open House or other needed information. I never felt I didn’t know what was transpiring day to day. Peggy is an exceptional realtor. She really listens, she responds to your questions and she is always willing to make sure you needs as the seller are heard and acted on. I would wholeheartedly recommend Peggy Jennings to anyone who is considering buying or selling a home. I would rate her well above 5 stars. I am so thankful she was my realtor. She certainly got the job done.

We could not more highly recommend Peggy Jennings as a realtor. From the moment we met her, she made us feel comfortable. Through the whole process of selling our house and buying another, she was with us every step of the way. She responded to every question and concern, no matter how trivial on our part. She gave us excellent advice at every turn and met with us constantly. She had amazing local contacts for all of our needs – repair people, handyman, roofers etc. She did all of our negotiating and really protected us. For all of you who see the one review that did not give Peggy excellent feedback, disregard because there is no way it is true! She is amazing and now a friend and not just our realtor.

Peggy helped my husband and I buy our current home in South Durham, as well as sell our townhouse, and we can’t recommend her more highly! She went above and beyond to help us with every step of the process. We worked with Peggy over the course of several months as we searched for homes, and she did a fantastic job finding houses that met our criteria, and helped us honestly evaluate whether the houses were right for us. She did a great job working through the negotiation process once we decided to make an offer, and was super responsive by phone, email, and text whenever we needed to get in touch.

Peggy also was wonderful throughout the process of listing and selling our townhouse – we had several showings right away, and had an offer within two weeks. There were a few snags along the way while we negotiated with the buyer, and Peggy was so helpful throughout the sale in navigating those issues. It was so reassuring knowing that she was on top of everything, and very responsive to any questions we had. She even offered to meet contractors and appliance deliveries at our new house, because my husband and I aren’t easily able to leave work during the day.

Overall, we would highly recommend Peggy as a thorough, responsive, and helpful agent, as well as a kind and caring person who helped us through the stressful buying and selling process. We are 100% satisfied and so happy that she was our agent!
