    My mission is to provide top quality service and communication. I want my buyers and sellers to understand the buying and selling process as well as I do. I provide regular service reports to my clients so they can understand what is happening and what I am doing for them.

    For buyers, I offer unparralleled service & I am willing to work days, nights, weekends. I enjoy MATCHING, not selling, real estate. I educate buyers on the market; they fine-tune me so we can find the right home for them.

    Team: I work w/ my husband, Mike, who had 25 years of banking and investment experience before entering real estate. He is as customer-oriented as I am. We try to fit your schedule, not ours.  Emily Ryan, also a licensed real estate agent, is the administrator and client care coordinator.  She grew up in a small family business and knows the meaning of excellent service and product knowledge. 

    Real estate success?  I sell a house every 4 days. What does that mean to you? If you are a buyer, I know how to get what you want. In any negotiation, it often must be a win-win to work. If it doesn't cost you to give the seller what (s)he wants and you get what you want, it's a win. If you are the seller, my experience helps you put your home on the market in the right condition at the right price for a quicker, higher sale. Knowing the market is my forte.

    My background:   Was award-winning consumer reporter for The Indpls News, the afternoon daily newspaper, then won awards as the editor of Indpls Magazine.  I have served as president, long-time secretary, business chair and Home Tour chair of Meridian-Kessler Neighborhood Assoc.  During my tenure on the home tour, we  instituted several innovative programs including the popular Twilight Tour. My jobs were to know the city - all sides -- extremely well so I could share it with readers.

    Previous board memberships: Philharmonic Orchestra of Indpls, St. Vincent Guild. Prevent Blindness of Indiana, Indpls Urban League.  Former precinct committeeman (20 yrs).

    I became the executive editor at Que Corp, became a division of MacMillan. My job was to negotiate w/ authors and foreign publishers and, to get the best authors without the salary, i learned how to make contracts work for both mgmt & authors.

    real Estate: In rehabbing properties for resale, I learned what it costs and the effort it takes.  Because of the rehab experience, I can help buyers/sellers understand what it may cost to put home in marketable shape.

    I believe in real estate.  I own rentals. Do you want to invest? I have that experience first-hand and can help newbies understand the realm of real estate investing. This is a great time to invest!   $$ is cheap, properties affordable, and renters available. Let your $$ work for you!

    Other life:  Attended Manchester College, graduate of Indiana U. My first job was at Peoria Journal Star. I have been to Cuba & Honduras, helping fit donated eyeglasses for the disadvantaged. I have biked (50 mi/day) in Provence, The Netherlands and Tuscany. I have biked 185-mi C&O towpath and 72 miles on the Eerie Canal (in one day!).

    Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $275K in Indianapolis, IN.

    We have used Pegg Kennedy exclusively since 1991 to buy and sell our properties (eight separate transactions). Pegg has been an astounding agent. Pegg's negotiation skills, attention to details, personal communications skills and availability are incomparable. We moved out of state with no worries about our house because Pegg and her team took care of everything for us. Pegg is one of those rare, once-in-a-lifetime people, that one is fortunate to know. She deserves the highest recommendation possible.  More Less

    Bought a Single Family home in 2012 in Indianapolis, IN.
    Primary point of contact: Mike Kennedy

    Pegg and Mike Kennedy brought expert advice and years of experience which made my house hunting quick and easy. They drove me around, answered any questions I had and worked with my schedule. Great to work with!

    Sold a home in 2014.

    My wife and I have used pegg twice now and have been very pleased both times. She works incredibly hard, has creative ideas, and listens to creative ideas from others. We would use her again in a heart beat.
