If you want to be represented by the best then use Pegi Dirienzo. She represented us in a sale in which we sold our house within 5 days! Her marketing expertise made all the difference in the world. Experience counts, especially in these times. We also were the beneficiaries of an outstanding purchase of a rental property, which Pegi represented us on. Not only did we get the lowest priced deal in an exclusive area, she also assisted us with her extensive resources in remodeling the property. Pegi then marketed the home and within one week brought us the ideal tenant. She is truly a treasure and the consummate professional; an A+++ performer in her industry. She really cares about her clients and that makes all the difference in the world.
Listing with Pegi and her entire group was the absolute best decision I could have made. I have never sold a home before so their knowledge, attention to detail and communication were vital. They exceeded any expectation I had. Pegi is a professional who personally cares about her clients. I find this pretty rare in today's world! If there were another star I would give it!
~ Kathy E.
Pegi DiRienzo and her entire staff did an excellent job marketing and selling our home. From the first day to final closing date we were continually kept up to date on all aspects of the transaction. We would definitely recommend Pegi to anyone who wanted a timely and trouble free real estate transaction.
~ Steve B.
Pegi and her incredible team sold our California home by doing all the right things. Having bought and sold several homes in our moves across the country, this real estate sale was easy, smooth, and super painless!!! We moved to Arizona prior to selling the California house so all of this was completed from a distance. The smooth process was amazing and incredibly reassuring at all times. The skillful and constant communication from Pegi and team was perfection! In addition, Pegi had the resources (handyman, cleaning team, staging person if needed) to respond with our permission to anything needing a quick fix or attention. By far, the BEST real estate sale we have ever experienced!
~ Kathryn and John Baughn
We have known Pegi DiRienzo for several years (and about her for a time before that). We knew that she was and is a veteran and experienced realtor with consummate expertise and knowledge regarding the Turtle Rock area of Irvine, California where we have lived for the past 35 years (we have lived in our home in Turtle Rock since December 1981). Our already very favorable impressions of Pegi were specifically confirmed when two of our close friends gave Pegi their high compliments about how Pegi helped them sell their home in Turtle Rock (and these friends are VERY demanding and restrictive in giving their compliments!).
We contacted Pegi when we considered selling our home, and she confirmed and ratified all of our desires and expectations in every respect. She was always available when we needed her, and we always knew and remained fully confident that she was tirelessly working for us and thinking about us at all times (while at the same time also working tirelessly for her other clients).
Pegi masterfully sold our house for TOP DOLLAR without even having to list it, and obtained favorable terms for us so we could remain in our home for several months while we looked for a new home to move to. Pegi then expertly guided, counseled, and advised us on our purchase of our new home, and we were able to stay in Turtle Rock which was our first preference.
Everything has worked out for us as well if not even better than we ever expected, AND OUR GOOD FORTUNE IS DUE IN SO MANY RESPECTS TO PEGI--without Pegi, our experience could have been and almost certainly would have been much less smooth and much more eventful, and we consider ourselves most fortunate to have had Pegi working for us, advising us, and holding our hands (literally and figuratively) throughout the life changing experience of moving to a new home!!!
We MOST HIGHLY AND WITHOUT RESERVATION recommend Pegi for any real estate situation. Pegi's encyclopedic knowledge, Pegi's many years of experience, Pegi's high intelligence, Pegi's endless motivation and energy, Pegi's boundless determination, Pegi's creativity, and Pegi's sincere devotion and dedication to her clients are EXEMPLARY in every way AND are without equal.
We cannot thank and appreciate Pegi enough for everything she did for us in this most important and so highly significant chapter in our lives.
~ Steve & Toby B.
“I just wanted to let you know that I really appreciate all your hard work and help in finding us our new home. We are getting settled in and loving our new space!” Thanks so much.
~ David & Julie
“I have now purchased 3 homes with Pegi and she is as professional, as thorough and as detailed as any agent in the market. Her market statistics are current and relevant. And, it doesn’t hurt that she can charm her way into great deals. Pegi will be my real estate agent for life.”
~ Clark N.
This has been the most difficult “thank you” note I (we’ve) ever written. It’s wonderful knowing people as kind and considerate as you are. Thank you for all you’ve done. We have so much to be thankful for. You are an exceptional real estate agent. You far exceeded our expectations as an agent. You’re honest, thorough, detailed, diplomatic, generous, understanding, paten, bubbly. The list goes on and on. It has been a pleasure to work with you and we highly recommend you.”
~ Karen & Eric
“Pegi sold our home to us in Irvine and then later helped us sell it for top market value this past year (2011) She is extremely knowledgeable about everything that has to do with buying and selling a home. Pegi is extremely talented in her field and brings a warmth and high energy in all that she does! To us she is a valued business associate and dear friend! I cannot think of the right words to describe just how good she is! She knows so much about all the intricacies of every home she showed us when we were buying and she knows Orange County so well that she can give all the details of every neighborhood throughout Irvine and Newport Beach.”
~ Jeff & Caryn
“Pegi DiRienzo is an amazing Realtor. Her genuine passion and remarkable knowledge has made her a world class professional and expert in the field of real estate. She goes above and beyond the realm of excellence. Pegi has sold and purchased properties for me for many years and it has been by far the most positive and stress free experience I have ever had.”
I am finally relaxing in my new home, just 90 days since you sold my old one, and just a few weeks since I moved into this new one, of which you handled for me as well.As I look back on the process, I cannot even imagine going through both transactions had you not been there by my side throughout.As a business owner, I know how much my customers value prompt service and follow through, and as successful as I am, not a day went by the last 5 months, that I was not in awe and extremely grateful for your impeccable service and follow through. You have the uncanny ability to complete the work and task before even asked; to completely handle every single step in the process and to make this process enjoyable, if that’s possible, under the most stressful of situations. And whenever there was a bump in the road, you handled it and removed all burden from me. Anything that was needed, you found the way to fix it, effortlessly. You are the consummate professional and;You ARE the poster child for making the buying and selling a home a positive experience and your peers would be lucky to learn from you. I continue to sing your praises and recommend you to anyone who will listen. If there is anything I can do for you, I hope you will not think twice to ask.I wish you continued success and thank you again for all your help in the selling of my last home and the purchase of my new one.I hope you’ll soon come see it, and let me fix you a nice dinner and be of service to you.”
“I think Pegi is the best real estate professional I have ever worked with. Pegi is kind, respectful, honest, intelligent, intuitive, etc.. Most importantly to me, Pegi places her clients objectives at the forefront of her own objectives.”
~ Tim & Maria
“Pegi did an amazing job helping us prepare our house for sale, so that in advance of our desired listing date we were able to take a number of important steps that allowed us to show our house in the best light possible. She brought staging elements that made a huge difference in how the house looked - she even brought a few items from her own home! As a result of her efforts in this area, and her extremely effective marketing of the house, we were able to sell our house in “x” days in a down market. We are extremely happy with the energy and expertise that Pegi brought to the table and have recommended her to others who are looking for a listing agent.”
~ Mark & Mary
We had the most amazingly smooth experience working with Pegi DiRienzo in the sale of our home. In addition to being incredibly energetic, upbeat and a pleasure to work with, Pegi’s extensive knowledge and capabilities are what truly make her shine. She always seemed to be a step ahead, from marketing the house to troubleshooting problems, she was always there to immediately swing into action and take care of business. And the people she works with, from the stager we used, Lisa Ahlke (a true miracle worker) with Coastal Staging to the professional photographers, they are all top notch. We felt we were in very competent hands and that our interests were always well-represented. Jeff and I would highly recommend Pegi to anyone in the real estate market.
~ Jeff and Haunani
“I was very happy having Pegi as our realtor. She was quite insightful, very knowledgeable, yet took our concerns/suggestions into consideration consistently. She had our home staged, truly showing its appeal as a family home and was thorough and professional every step of the way.”
“I have been involved in 19 real estate transactions as a principal and have experienced the range of realtors, I thought. For the most part proletarian. Pegi DiRienzo, who sold my current home, is a remarkable exception. Her knowledge, her professionalism, and her commitment to her clients are refereshing. Her integrity, unquestionable. Pegi has made this transaction a thoroughly effortless and pleasant experience.”
“How do you do it all?! Thank you so much for all your help with my home. You’ve made the selling process so easy and successful. My only regret is that we can’t be neighbors.”
~ Joan & Patrick
“You truly are a God send! Thank you for all your help with everything! Thank you for your wisdom, love, support, and encouragement!”
~ Andy and Tracy
“I just wanted to thank you for all of your hard work, follow-through, patience, and understanding. We have really enjoyed working with you and getting to know you better.”
~ Stacey and Eric
“Many, many thanks for all of your efforts, concern, time, courage, thoughtfulness, knowledge, interest, and honesty as my Real Estate agent.”
“Thank you so much for all you did to help sell our house-so much of which was above and beyond the role of a seller’s agent. I am particularly grateful for your advice on prepping the house for sale and your oversight of the kitchen remodel. Our neighbors were astounded at how fast the house was sold-and your efforts deserve much of the credit!”
“I am so thankful our paths crossed this year. I absolutely love my new home. It is truly a dream come true.”
“It is with deep appreciation that we thank you for all the work you did to try to sell our home in this impossible market. You do excellent work.”
~ Karen & Jake
"Pegi is an outstanding realtor - she makes it happen!!
I love the house she found for me and then she sold my house immediately. It was all such an easy transaction....thanks, Pegi"
~ - Charlene C.
"Pegi is one of the best agent I have met in LA, I bought a house in Irvine from Pegi in this Jan'2014 and closed the case with bank loan within 30 days, I would like to recommend Pegi as your buyer agent to all."
~ Richard L.
"I had to sell my house and do it from 3000 miles away. Friends recommended Pegi to me because she was the most knowledgeable about the homes in my area (TurtleRock). And boy was she - She knew exactly where the market for my home would be. Pegi and her staff were extremely professional and helpful especially with my situation as they were able to cordinate showings (giving me a heads up everytime someone was going to the house), maintenance to the residence, and most importantly sell my home in a very short period of time. She took care of everything. I would recommend Pegi to anyone who asked and would tell them to put their home in her hands and it’s as good as sold! "
~ Bill M.
"Pegi has been our "go to" real estate professional for the past 15 years and has listed, sold, found and closed a total of six homes for our family. Her professionalism and expertise is always commented upon and commended by the other party's agent. When you are her client - whether buying or selling - she gives 110% throughout the entire process - I challenge anyone to find a better real estate professional in Orange County."
~ Margarethe S.
"You can't find a better local realtor than Pegi. She is very knowledgeable about the schools, and all areas within a neighborhood. She isn't just another realtor looking to make a quick commission - she actually cares that she finds you the right home and/or sells your home to the right buyer. She is honest and will tell you if she feels a home isn't the right home for you for whatever reason. Pegi is the best, and I would highly recommend her."
~ Heather D.
"Without Pegi's expertise, I believe we wouldn't have been successful in locating and ultimately purchasing our house. She was always positive, yet realistic, and was a great partner throughout the whole process. While we're not in a hurry to buy or sell another home anytime soon, I know when that times comes she will be our first call."
~ Mark F.
"We highly recommend Pegi for local knowledge in the Irvine area. We go back over 11 years with her when my wife and I were expecting twin girls and looking for a larger home (respectfully named with love and affection the Boo-Boo house) . As the story goes, homes at the Summit rarely go on the market since it is probably one of the last grandfathered in single family communities in Turtle Rock with larger yards that are not faced with Mello Roos fees. I stopped at her open house (the only house on the market) and to make a long story short Pegi said, "I just sold this house but I know of another that is perfect for you that isn't even on the market." The rest is history, we closed within 20 days and Pegi has been a good friend and advisor who has leased our other home in the community and provided us with guidance ever since. Her knowledge and responsiveness are exceptional."
~ Joe & Cathy M.
"Pegi has assisted me in 4 of my 5 real estate purchases, from primary residence to rental properties. And, as a bonus she helps me with my leasing. Pegi is a true professional on every level of the transaction. She is thoughtful, well-informed, bright and creative. I would 100% recommend Pegi on either side of a real estate sale."
~ Clark N.
"Over the past ten years, Pegi has been my agent in four purchases and one sale in Orange County. In those transactions, she has always been thorough, attentive and professional. Her marketing is top notch and she represents her client's best interest in each step explaining intricacies that you might not have realized.
She has set the standard by which we measure Real Estate Professionals. When we have had occasion to buy and sell without Pegi as our agent (out of town deals), it made us appreciate Pegi even more. Fortunately, she is always willing to answer questions.
I highly recommend Pegi to anyone considering buying or selling real estate."
~ Chuck P.
"I am pleased to say Pegi DiRienzo has been the most competent realtor I have ever worked with. She is a total professional yet friendly and very personable. She also is extremely knowledgeable in the Turtle Rock area of Irvine where she most recently represented me on the sale of my home. Selling or buying a home requires an open and honest partnership with a Realtor and Pegi exceeded all my expectations."
~ Lew S.
"We (my wife and I) were very pleased with Peggy's style. She is really a pro! She knows the market, and truly has expertise in the real estate business. From marketing to staging, and closing the deal, she is a master of the craft. We would highly recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell realestate. She is not artificial, but a real person. We were so happy with the job she dif for us."
~ Don & Carolyn T.
"I worked with Pegi since 2002, when she helped my buy my first home in TR. Since then she has been my go-to realtor; I've used her for six transactions and am in process for a seventh. Pegi is honest, knowledgeable and gets and A + for customer service!"
~ Dr. Faith Polk
"Pegi and her team were awesome. She has deep domain and really knew the area, current markets trends, comps, etc. The process she laid out worked perfectly, we sold our home faster and for a better price than I expected. The team worked great together and are so responsive and flexible it made it the easiest most pleasant closing I have ever had."
~ Brian D.
"I have lived in and sold many houses in my 89 years. My recent experience with Pegi was the best I have ever had. She was very knowledgeable and always available to answer any question. she staged the house to perfection. In fact it looked so good I almost was reluctant to sell it. I would choose Pegi for any real estate transactions that I ever have in the future. She is the best."
~ Doctor Quilligan
"Pegi DiRienzo is simply the very BEST! In these times, you need outstanding support; someone that can guide you to a winning deal. Whether buying, selling, or finding a tenant for a property, Pegi delivers time and time again.
We could not be happier with the level of professionalism she has provided us over the years!"
~ Tom & Marita K.
Pegi is without a doubt the most amazing agent one could ever hope to work with!!!
I had interviewed several agents and was undecided on who to list with, when Pegi walked in, I knew she was the one. She staged my home perfectly, brought in her own touches to finish everything beautifully and my home sold within one month.
She's highly organized and has a dedicated team that is superior!!!
Pegi has extensive market knowledge, is very thorough, detailed and honest in her assessments
~ Lisa S.
"Pegi's pre open house preparation is amazing; her ability to get things done along with her fantastic staff is unparalleled. She is a great negotiator and a super agent. Highly recommend. Simply put she is Top Shelf. Sold our house in a couple of days for the highest price our neighborhood had ever seen."
~ - Jan & Bill H.
"Pegi was masterful in the selling of our home. She is an expert in the home market in our neighborhood of Turtle Rock. She provided regular updates on state of the local market and her efforts in marketing our home. She was always only a phone call, or text away. Remarkably responsive. I came to trust Pegi and her team completely as looking out for our best interest. Best of all, she sold our home quickly after negotiating a fair price. I will definitely look to Pegi for next real estate transaction. I recommend her as highly as is possible."
~ Larry H.
My husband and I had an amazing experience with Pegi and her team. Everyone was really dedicated to helping us find the perfect home, and in the end we really did! You could tell from the beginning that she has a good read on families and where you would fit in best around the area.
~ Shilpa M.
Pegi represented me in the sale of my previous home and the purchase of my new home. Her professional skills and attention to detail made both processes pain and stress free. In the sale of my home she recommended everything to get the house buyer ready and it was quickly sold for the price we wanted. In the purchase of my home she gave me insights to think about before making the purchase. Once I picked my neighborhood, it was Pegi who pointed out to stay away from backing up to the main street even though it was gated and appeared quiet; as well as suggesting an end unit versus a middle unit. I listened to her suggestions and waited and got an even better unit than my original selection. The best part was that Pegi kept me so updated that it was rare that I have a question, because she answered them before I even asked. I wished she worked all over the country as I would recommend her to all my family and sales.
~ Stacy S
Pegi was the perfect choice for us to sell our house. She was very personable and knowledgeable. Her marketing was great. The brochures and ads were great. She is super familiar with the local market. She also is a great communicator. We would refer her to anyone that wanted to buy or sell locally. We loved our house and she made the process very smooth.
~ Gary & Natalie H.
Pegi is a diamond! She represented us both in the sale of our former home and in the purchase of our current home. The thoughtful preparation of our home to sell and unequalled attention to detail brought multiple above listing price offers and a quick and painless close to our deal. Her knowledge of marketing and expertise in Turtle Rock are exceptional. On the buying side, Pegi helped us find our current home and always looked out for our best interest as the deal progressed. She and her staff were always only a phone call or text away. Cannot possibly say enough good things about Pegi. Would have no hesitation in using her as our realtor again
~ Marc & Stephanie H.
Pegi and her team have tremendous knowledge and experince which helped sell our home at the highest price quickly. Her sincere approach with compassion, integrity and honesty helped during a few difficult decisions during the process. The next time we sell or buy a home, we will hire Pegi and her team.
~ Dan & Kimberly D.
Pegi is very thorough and detailed. She has an amazing team and they follow up on everything. We were so happy with all she did - she really worked hard on our transaction, which was very challenging. Plus she is so pleasant to work with - an amazing uplifting attitude!
~ Bob & Barbara S.
Pegi is well organized and she follows through on her promises. She handled the selling of my house; I got a good price and had four offers
in the first two weeks.
~ Pat B.
We have known Pegi for years. Well in advance of her listing our property, she prepped us on what to expect and when to execute including needed work and staging for the showings. It all went well and we got full price after just 6 weeks of listing. Couldn't be happier!
~ Lee & Jeanne S.
Pegi has the house selling process down to a science. Her experience allowed her to quckly help us rationalize and set the asking price for our house, removing the emotions from the transaction and setting our expectations based on facts. At the same time, Pegi made us feel under control of the transaction at all times. She provided options and the possible outcome of each option.
Pegi's real estate network allowed us to get offers within a week and to qui quickly select the ideal buyer and deal.
Pegi helped us sell our house in record time while getting a fair market value for our home. She and her team are a delight to work with and they helped keeping us updated at all times and moving the closing process quickly.
I would definitely recommend Pegi to anybody looking to sell their property in the residential areas that are her specialty.
~ Luis & Karen R.
Pegi, is a true professional and a pleasure to work with! Top notch marketing: photos, 3D video tour, and detailed printed materials. She also has an impressive understanding of the real estate market and knows what buyers are looking for. She is hard working, detailed oriented and was present at every showing. Incredible follow up skills and feedback was provided on a weekly basis. A smooth transaction and a great experience.
~ Pete & Michelle B.
Pegi is an excellent realtor. She is extremely knowledgable for Turtle rock area. You can count on her to give you great services. We are very happy with her services.
~ Roy & Irene D.
My husband and I had heard great things about Pegi and her team so had high expectations. Pegi and her team exceeded our expectations! Pegi and her team are ethical, incredibly responsive, knowledgable, and highly professional. We had multiple offers, entirely due to the steps taken by Pegi and her team. We highly recommend using Pegi DiRienzo for your real estate needs! For more details about the sales process, read on. We interviewed several local agents and felt most comfortable with Pegi - she is the top agent in our area, is direct and honest, knows the market inside and out, and provided a thorough overview of how she intended to get our house sold. During our initial conversation with Pegi, she identified ways to spruce up the house, and subsequently provided referrals to wonderful service providers that were as responsive as Pegi and her team. She recommended staging our home and we agreed. I highly recommend doing so - our house never looked so good! Pegi created a beautiful brochure and we immediately and continually had showings. The communication from Pegi and her team was excellent. Dianne, one of Pegi's team members, was great at notifying us of each showing and locking up afterwards. Dianne or Pegi would send us activity reports summarizing the week's activity on our house and in the neighborhood so we could feel comfortable that we were priced right relative to competing homes on the market. The weekly reports also included helpful summaries of each showing and Pegi would follow up with phone calls. We received an all cash offer with a 30-day escrow - a seller's dream! Pegi negotiated all terms to our liking. Kelsey, another of Pegi's team members oversaw the closing and provided helpful reminders for each step of the closing process. Pegi, Diane, and Kelsey were all wonderful to work with - incredibly responsive, ethical, professional, and helpful - and made selling our home as easy as possible.
~ Greg & Cheryl M.
Pegi (and her staff) were the best RE representatives we have ever had and this is our 6th house sale / transaction. Pegi was super professional from the presentation to marketing, to staging and to negotiating! We were VERY pleased with the entire process and moved to Texas feeling we had the best value and a great buyer!
Highly recommend. This was our first time selling a house, so we were clueless on most of the process. Pegi and her team were very knowledgeable, attentive and responsive to any questions we had. So friendly and easy to talk to. She did a masterful job staging our home. Her marketing brochures were top notch. She really cares about what she does and it shows. We're really grateful to Pegi and her team!
The sale of our home went very smoothly with Pegi's guidance through every phase of the selling process - love that. Among the things we loved were the staging of our home. In the selling of our three previous homes, no one comes close to the service that she performed. She and her group are heads and shoulders above the rest.
~ Andy and Suzanne
Pegi sold my father's house for us. She sold it very fast and did a wonderful job of handling all the details which precede a sale: re-painting, house repairs, new carpeting, staging each room, and even planting flowers to add color outside! In addition, she had great marketing ideas, including in her listing the fact that this was the lowest priced home then on the market in its neighborhood. She and her staff were also always responsive to our many questions, and they did a great job of keeping us updated regularly. When we received several offers she even sent us a spreadsheet itemizing the details of each so we could compare apples to apples. All in all, a great experience!
Pegi has been our broker for the past 12 years and she recently helped us sell our rental home. She went above and beyond her job and handled every aspect of the sale including coordinating with contractors to do repairs, etc. She made our home selling experience stress-free and she was always quick to respond to our questions. Her team kept us apprised of all escrow deadlines and we were able to successfully close on time. We have bought two homes and sold two homes through Pegi and we highly recommend Pegi and her group for their expertise and professionalism. Thank you Pegi!
My wife and I can highly recommend Pegi's Home Group and her entire team. Pegi and her associates were there for us every step of the way from preparing our home for maximum value to list right through a quick sale and smooth escrow. She and her entire crew helped make the difficult transactional process quite manageable and pleasant given today's rigorous standards. They had every step covered with a high degree of professionalism coupled with great efficiency. We are very pleased with the results of our sale.
If I have to sum up Pegi and her team in few words here are the words Honesty , professionalism and easy to communicate. I have worked with her since 2007 and it has been a pleasure.
Pegi is extremely experienced and easy to work with. She has helped us buy a house as well as to sell. She has such a great personality and gets along with ALL types of people and personalities, always with a smile. Her multi-tasking skills are incredible as she really gets ALL the jobs done in a timely fashion, as she helps you through any rough moments as well. I highly recommend her and without hesitation will call upon her again in the future. THANK YOU PEGI!!!! (Her team is also fantastic, as Pegi directly oversees everyone, and they all are very flexible and helpful)
The sale of our house was a long process. We didn't start until late in the year. We had one offer that went into escrow but it fell out because the buyer wasn't really serious. Pegi was always supportive that we would find the right buyer. We took out home off the market to reset the MLS. We started early in the new year with a strong push, but the market wasn't excited about our price range so we eventually dropped our asking price. Pegi found a buyer who really loves our house and can just manage our asking price. Pegi and her group guided us expertly through this long process and found the buyers we are very pleased with. Pegi's group handled all the details which was really helpful because we had already moved north and weren't nearby.
Pegi DiRienzo and her team were outstanding and a pleasure to work with to sell our home. Their marketing expertise was second to none and we were fortunate to get an offer at the open house that closed in the time we had hoped. Pegi and her team helped prep our house and had all the resources needed for the minor maintenance items that needed to be completed. She was communicative and readily available any time we needed to reach her. We will definitely use Pegi and her team for the sale of our future homes and would highly recommend her to others.
