★★★★★
Margaux was delightful to work with and extremely competent. She knows the market inside and out and was very creative with marketing and selling our home during a challenging time in the market. Unlike some prior experiences, I always looked forward to speaking with Margaux and I feel as though I made a friend in the process. Highly recommend - Clement Pappas

★★★★★
Margaux went above and beyond in every way possible to find us a perfect home. She never rushed us or pushed if she didn't think it was the right house for us. She made herself available for countless showings (I literally lost count!). When we found houses that we were interested in pursuing, she was assertive with the other agents and kept us informed every step of the way. Most importantly, Margaux did what you wish every doctor, hair dresser, teacher and staff member at the Apple store would do - she LISTENED. She took the time to thoroughly understand our frustrations, concerns and challenges in finding a house. If there was a showing that didn't cover everything on our "must-have" list, she made sure to tell us in advance so we could opt out if we wanted to. She came to understand our needs better than we did. In the end, Margaux's resourcefulness is what got us there. She's scrappy! She found us a house that we would have never been able to find on our own. And then she and her well-equipped team did a phenomenal job selling our house - in three days! We are forever grateful to Margaux for the hard work and care that she put into finding us the perfect home. - Lauren Laver

★★★★★
Margaux was a dream. She helped us sell 5 different properties in three different neighborhoods over one summer. Her eye for pricing, marketing, helping us get the best price that would close on time all made the impossible seem like just another workday. - John Feuerstein

★★★★★
Our experience working with Margaux was fantastic. Everything about it made things go so smoothly. She was extremely patient and knowledgeable. Margaux knows this city better than anyone! She was available no matter what time of day and educated us tremendously on the process of selling our home. We felt completely comfortable deferring to Margaux when it came to making decisions or signing documents. She is certainly trustworthy. Her friendly and pleasant demeanor also make it a pleasure to work with Margaux. Highly recommend! - Jill Brotman

★★★★★
Margaux was great! My fiance and I were originally considering only houses in Graduate Hospital, but Margaux suggested we also see some houses in Fairmount and we ended up loving it. She listened well to what was most important to us and refined listings each time we went out to look with her. After finding a new construction, she recommended several upgrades and helped us negotiate to a wonderful final product. Now we love our home, and could not have done it without Margaux! - Dana Shanis

★★★★★
Margaux was a fantastic agent. She was knowledgeable, responsive, and a skilled negotiator. My house in Fitler Square was under contract in 48 hours thanks to her excellent marketing and pricing strategy. She also didn't make me go crazy with staging, which I really appreciated because I have two small children. - Bohman

★★★★★
We used Margaux as our realtor to buy and sell two houses, and all of our experiences with her have been fantastic. She is extremely knowledgeable about the Philadelphia center city housing market, she does a great job marketing her properties, and she is a true advocate for her clients. Both of the homes that we sold with Margaux were sold within 30 days for very good prices. When looking for a new home she listened to our needs and found us beautiful places. I would HIGHLY recommend using Margaux to either buy or sell your home. - Megan J. Brody

★★★★★
We chose to list our home with Margaux based on her deep knowledge not just of Center City but our neighborhood within it. We were relocating across the country, so time was a premium for us, but we wanted to get as much as we possibly could. She did an excellent job of marketing the property, from ensuring it was listed everywhere it needed to be online, to working her own network buyers agents, to listing it at exactly the right price. We had an offer the same day it went on the market, and 3 the evening of the open house. We were in contract within 3 days of it going on the market, at a price above our asking price. I would recommend Margaux wholeheartedly -- she was an absolute pleasure to work with! - Diane Bartoli

★★★★★
Margaux was phenomenal, no matter how big or small the issue she was always willing and able to help. We priced right based on her recommendation, got above ask, and had very little anxiety through the process. I would, without question, use her again; top marks! - Moniica McKay

★★★★★
Margaux was exceptional in listening to our needs and pointing us in the right direction. Instead of ushering us around to every house in existence, she brought us to the houses she knew we would love. And she was right! We ended up purchasing the third home we saw, and couldn't be happier! - Gina & Daniel Criscitelli

★★★★★
I have bought and sold more than 6 homes in Rittenhouse Square. It wasn’t until my last few transactions when I met Mary and Margaux did I understand that I was now dealing with the best. They define customer service and professionalism. I laugh at the ads that say, “We sell the most or the largest number of condo sales”. When I am buying or selling my most significant possession, my home, I want the best, the most professional, someone that treats my property and my needs as their own. I want Mary and Margaux. Someone that sells the most in no way means they serve the seller or the buyer the best. What I learned from Mary and Margaux is that I was not just one more appointment in a busy schedule. They really cared about what I wanted; they listened very carefully to my needs. I never felt like I was being pushed into a deal I didn’t feel right about. I certainly never felt it was just about getting the sale or the deal done. With Mary and Margaux it is all about a relationship that is why so many of their clients are still both clients and friends for life. - Frank Donaghue, CEO Friends of the Orphans

★★★★★
“My fiancé and I worked with Margaux to buy our first home in Philadelphia, and we could not have asked for a better experience with a realtor! As first time home buyers, we needed a lot of guidance, and she went above and beyond to help us every step of the way. She was very patient with us as we figured out exactly what we wanted from neighborhood to house size. Her knowledge about the market and neighborhoods in Philly helped us find a home that we love! We have already recommended her to friends looking for a home, and they are closing on their dream home next weekend! If you want a realtor you can really trust, call Margaux!” - Kelly Tomer

★★★★★
There are not enough superlatives to sufficiently describe my experience with Margaux Pelegrin. She is a consummate professional and possesses both the IQ (local knowledge, financial acumen, etc.) and the EQ (consideration, patience, etc.) necessary to create an exceptional real estate experience. Most importantly, she found my dream home and negotiated a great price! - Catherine Moellering

★★★★★
It's very easy to write about a successful transaction. What I look for in an agent is knowledge of the marketplace, pricing based on competitive factors, and the use of the latest technology to appeal to a wide audience. Mary and Margaux have competence in all three. I also appreciated the help in filling out the complex local and state forms. The transaction was completed with no need for a real estate attorney. Mary and Margaux don't let issues "sit". They respond with quickness and accuracy. I have used Mary and Margaux for buying, selling, and rental. Who could ask for anything more? - Frederick Morlok

★★★★★
Margaux helped my husband and I purchase our first home this year. She is incredibly knowledgeable about the Philadelphia market and neighborhoods. She was easy to get in touch with, flexible and made us feel comfortable throughout the entire process. She's very honest which was exactly what we needed as first-time buyers. We would recommend her to anyone! - Eric Gromball & Amanda Nitti

★★★★★
Margaux was both professional and approachable. This made us feel extremely comfortable expressing our expectations and also any doubts that would arise during the search process. It was clear she had our best interest at heart and she did a great job getting us our dream house within our particular means. She was also really quick to gain an understanding of our vision and was able to hone in on our specific tastes, making the process a lot easier and less time-consuming. A pleasure to work with, and a refreshing break from the ego-centric agents that are so prevalent in the real estate world! - Kait Falconer

★★★★★
Margaux was professional and a pleasure to work with. She had a good pulse on the market and moved quickly on an offer, which was one of my requirements with a realtor. She helped me land a great condo in the city and couldn't be happier with the place. I highly recommend her to others in Philadelphia looking for a positive home purchasing experience. - Flamm

★★★★★
Margaux is a true professional and wonderful at her job. She makes the process very easy and enjoyable. Margaux sold our condo in just 2 days! We couldn't have asked for an easier experience. - Jennifer & Andrew Eimer

★★★★★
My husband and I have worked with Margaux twice now, once as first- time home buyers, the second when we sold our house four years later. We moved to Philadelphia from out of state and were very unfamiliar with the city at the time we were looking to buy. Margaux worked with us for several months, showing us various properties all over the city and helping us narrow down our preferred areas. She is an incredibly diligent and thoughtful realtor and always had our best interest in mind throughout the often stressful and tedious process. We ending up buying the perfect house in a neighborhood that we absolutely loved, and when the time came to sell our house, there was no question we would use Margaux's services again. I cannot stress enough the amount of professionalism and expertise she brings to her work. She is an incredibly skilled negotiator as well, and we knew she would go to bat for us when the situation called for it. As a bonus, she was born and raised in Philadelphia, and knows the city better than anyone else I've met. - Lauren & Fernando Bairos

★★★★★
Margaux helped my fiance and I find the perfect first home! Going into it, we had no idea what to expect or what we were even doing, ha! Margaux not only walked us through each step of the process but also showed us some amazing properties until we found THE ONE. She was on our side the entire time, by hard negotiating with the sellers and making sure the property was perfect for settlement. Our experience was really fun and in the end, we got everything we wanted. - Krysta Genovese & Bradley Jones

★★★★★
Margaux is tremendous. She is incredibly knowledgeable about neighborhoods, housing specifications, and changes and renovations that can be done to a home--she shares this information freely as you are touring a home. I saw a home with her on a Friday morning and we had an offer signed that night! Her efficiency is unparalleled. She was easily reachable via phone, email, and text messaging. She responded to our (many!) questions (first-time home buyers!) almost instantly-- including weekends. I couldn't give any higher praise for Margaux. She is now my Philadelphia realtor for life! - Zachary McClain

★★★★★
Margaux Pelegrin is the embodiment of what all realtors should strive to be like - we will never work with anyone but Margaux going forward for any home sales or purchases. We worked with her for over 9 months to find the perfect home in Philadelphia. She was patient, incredibly knowledgeable, supportive, and was available 24/7. Her team is also fabulous. Margaux has tremendous expertise in the Philadelphia market, having grown up in Philadelphia, and she takes tremendous pride in her work. We couldn't recommend her more highly - she is truly a spectacular star! - Rinad S. Beidas

★★★★★
Margaux is a life-long center city resident who knows the ins and outs of the city. She is incredibly knowledgeable about the inventory and resale value when looking for places and she will help stage your home to make sure you get the best offers possible. Margaux is very responsive and always quick to offer helpful referrals and suggestions of how to make the best of your home. - Lauren Daniels & Greg Schernecke

★★★★★
Margaux made our first home purchase in Philadelphia a breeze. Never pushy, always straightforward and honest, super responsive, and truly a joy to work with. What we thought would be a couple of months of the search process quickly turned into the better part of a year and Margaux never lost sight of our interests/requests, kept us patient, and helped us get exactly what we were looking for. From our first consult, all the way to closing day, it was clear we were in the best hands. Looking forward to working with Margaux again in the future for any of our other real estate needs!! - Jamie Froehlich & Meredith Miller

★★★★★
Margaux was incredible to work within our housing search! She is the absolute best and I highly recommend her to anyone looking to purchase a home in Philadelphia. She was extremely patient and listened to all of our wants & needs to ensure we found the best property for us in our price range. Her insights were so incredible that she found us the perfect home that we would never have found ourselves. I can't thank Margaux enough and look forward to hopefully working with her again in the future! - Katie Grossman & Ed O' Reilly

★★★★★
I could not recommend a professional more highly than I recommend Margaux. Buying a (very expensive) home is stressful, nerve-wracking, and an altogether new experience. We bought our home in Fitler Square in an extremely competitive market for buyers. Margaux had great insight into what would be coming up for the market (which was crucial in this market -- she truly, truly knows the market in Center City); on-point instincts about when to make an offer, and at what price point; when to walk away and wait for another house. We were the winning bidder in a competitive bidding war with Margaux's excellent guidance. When it came time to inspect, and then close, she held our hand throughout the process. It was truly seamless and low-stress. She was ethical and above board at all times. She went beyond just getting us the house and closing-- recommending contractors, landscapers, roofers, and the many other professionals we needed to make our home our own. I recommend her to friends and family without hesitation. She will get you the house you have been waiting for, or sell your house at top price. She is smart, confident, knowledgeable, and honest. You can't ask for more than that. - Sarah Pierce
