Meet Peggy Hoag - Principal Broker Licensed in Oregon and Washington

Peggy is an entrepreneur to the core. After successfully growing her photography business into a production company in Sydney, Australia, the 5th generation Portland native returned to her hometown in 1991 at the age of 27. “As I generated the business for my photography and production company, I learned early to listen to hear instead of to listen to reply. I learned I was good at bringing in business,” she says. Armed with hands-on experience building a client base, a history of impeccable service to her clients, and a linear approach to success in business, Peggy selected real estate as the industry she would take by storm.

 There was no magic required to becoming a top broker, Peggy asserts. “Dependability is everything. In addition to being able to bring in business, I knew how to exceed client expectations. The vast majority of people want to buy or sell a home at some point in their lives. Homes are a high value item, so real estate made sense to me for my next venture.” Peggy began to establish a reputation in Portland as the top agent for people relocating to the region. “I went to a couple of relocation companies and asked what I needed to do to earn their business. They said I needed to know the four quadrants of Portland inside and out. At that time, most brokers only worked—or farmed—one neighborhood,” Peggy recalls. “I did what they asked; I set out to build my business in all four quadrants of town, and soon I added Clark County and the Gorge to my sphere.”

Relocating clients became Peggy’s focus. She applied that focus to helping home sellers. To accomplish her goals, Peggy recognized the importance of marketing. “Maximum exposure is how you get top dollar. You get maximum exposure through marketing. When you market properly, the greatest number of people see the home. The higher the number of people that see it, the sooner it sells, resulting in a higher sale price,” she states. “It is an incredibly logical process. I love the sheer business side of it.” Armed with this knowledge, Peggy crafted an exceptional marketing campaign that is used for every home sale.

Superb customer service is what Peggy and her team consistently strive for. “I continually ask myself, ‘How can I help my client?’ My goal is to help solve a real need in my clients’ lives.” With this in mind, Peggy has assembled a team with more than 60 combined years of real estate experience. This team crafts market updates each month for every client to keep them current on real estate activity in their neighborhood.

An excellent customer experience, Peggy believes, includes excellent food! Peggy’s favorite way to connect with clients is to prepare gourmet meals for them in her home. Sangiovese wine from her vineyard on the Columbia River is often served. Clients also receive invitations to her annual harvest event each year. There’s no denying Peggy is a savvy business woman, but she remains inimitably down to earth when discussing her unparalleled success as one of the top brokers nationwide.

With over two thousand home sales completed since 1991, and a combined total of more than $600 million, Peggy has reached achievements most real estate agents only dream of. Although Peggy has no shortage of awards and accolades, she is constantly striving to improve and grow. “Our business tomorrow is only as good as our service today. It’s not what we did yesterday that matters; it’s what we are going to do tomorrow.” As for tomorrow, Peggy has her sights set on continuing to raise the bar of excellence in the real estate industry. “My business model creates an incredible experience for sellers and buyers. I want more people to have a satisfying real estate experience, and my team and I are here to make that happen.”

Meet Troy Redinger - Real Estate Broker Licensed in Washington

Troy comes to the team with extensive sales and service background. After growing up on a dairy farm in Hockinson, Washington, Troy went to Washington State University where he majored in English.

Troy thrives on adventure and adrenaline. He has flown planes, driven tanks, rafted the Grand Canyon, and kayaked the Sea of Cortez. His current source for adventure is taking his three children with his water ski boat to Lake Merwin.
