I highly recommend Peggy! As someone that does not have a lot of experience in buying or selling homes, Peggy helped me every step of the way. From preparing my home to sell to what to look for when it came to buying a new one. If you are looking for someone that will be honest and has your best interest in mind then go with Peggy.

I have experienced both ends, buying and selling, properties with Peggy Varilla. She has always been the most professional broker I have worked with over my 50 years of buying and selling my personal residences. Highly-qualified and recommended.
