The Tidlunds Nov 15, 2015
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 real estate. She is not artificial, but a real person. We were so happy with the job she did for us. Don & Carolyn Tidlund.
Turtle Rock Seller Nov 16, 2013
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.
Seller & Buyer Dec 16, 2013
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.
C. Neuhoff Dec 17, 2013
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.
The Martinez Family Jan 7, 2014
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. Thanks Pegi, Joe, Cathy and the Boo Boo's aka Twins
Turtle Ridge Buyer Jul 10, 2014
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.
Turtle Rock Seller Jul 14, 2014
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.
Margarethe S. Jul 16, 2014
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.
Out of Area seller in Turtle Rock Jul 30, 2014
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!
Richard Jul 31, 2014
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
Turtle Rock Seller Aug 29, 2014
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 work perfectly, we sold our home faster and for I 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.
University Park Seller Sep 4, 2014
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.
Turtle Rock Seller Sep 4, 2014
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.
Turtle Rock Seller Sep 18, 2014
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!
The Hilliards Oct 14, 2014
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.
Turtle Rock Seller Oct 15, 2014
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.
Tustin Buyer Oct 22, 2014
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.
Huntington Beach Seller & Buyer Nov 14, 2014
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.
Natalie Hill Nov 20, 2014
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.
Stephanie H. Dec 10, 2014
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!
Dan De La Paz May 16, 2015
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.
Turtle Rock Seller May 18, 2015
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!
The Baughns May 19, 2015
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
Turtle Rock Seller May 15, 2015
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.
Steve Brownell Jun 5, 2015
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.
The Rojina's Jun 30, 2015
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.
Pat Barns Jul 31, 2015
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.
Lee Sutter Aug 20, 2015
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!
Kathy Eulenstein Sep 25, 2015
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!
Irene D. Sep 27, 2015
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.
Cheryl M. Oct 7, 2015
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.
The Ballard Family Feb 10, 2016
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!
Oat S. Mar 25, 2016
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!
Kathy L. Mar 29, 2016
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!
Andy & Suzanne Mar 30, 2016
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
Newport Beach Seller Apr 18, 2016
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!
Turtle Rock Seller Jul 12, 2016
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.
Turtle Rock Seller & Buyer Jul 28, 2016
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)
Turtle Rock Seller Jul 26, 2016
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.
Susan Sirota Jul 26, 2016
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.
Ivory Gao Nov 7, 2016
The house we just purchased is located in the community of Turtle Rock, Irvine. Pegi, as our agent, surprised us with her extremely professional knowledge: she's such an expert not only in the real estate marketing, but also the architecture and the structure of almost all types of the houses in this city. From marketing analysis and pricing comparison, to bank mortgage process and escrow process, from the insurance to the house inspection, from facility repairing to interior remodeling and design, from pre-appraisal simulation to coordination among bank, escrow, seller and buyer. Too much to express here. Pegi, she is indeed transcended her profession, we are deeply touched by her efficiency, enthusiasm, benevolence, honest and, love. Being a native resident, Pegi gained a lot of respects and trusts by the neighbors, we are so lucky to not only acquired a dream home but also gained a reliable friend in Irvine - we started to falling love with this city, after 6 months living here, as a new immigrant family.
Barbara Ferrante Nov 11, 2016
Pegi is brilliant in her knowledge and expertise in the local real estate market. The level of service provided by Pegi and her team is outstanding, and I appreciated the fact that she is always accessible. Real estate transactions often come with challenges, and Pegi does a excellent job in offering solutions and finding ways to succeed. I had a great experience working with Pegi and team, and would recommend her to others.
Shady Canyon Seller Nov 21, 2016
Pegi and her team were very responsive, always available. When there were hiccups, which is inevitable in any transaction, Pegi was immediately on top of it and took action to resolve any issues. She is very aware that selling a home is very personal and emotional and helped to balance business and emotions at the same time. Pegi also had many contacts that were extremely useful during the selling process, such as handyman, stagers and painters. We would highly recommend Pegi to others looking to sell or purchase a home.
Turtle Rock Seller Dec 1, 2016
Pegi was instrumental to the successful sale of our Irvine home. Her knowledge of the industry and local market is unmatched. Her team is extensive, ranging from real estate, title and escrow experts to contractors and specialty consultants. Pegi's first met with us and presented her sales plan in great detail to determine if she could meet our needs and expectations. She then executed her plan masterfully; in particular the staging of the home, leading to the early offer, followed by her successful negotiation in our favor with the buyers. Her team handled the complex escrow smoothly, always keeping us on track and informed. My wife and I strongly recommend her services to anyone who wants results. Thanks very much, Pegi-
L5 Partners Dec 13, 2016
Pegi helped L5 partners, an Irvine based real estate development company, locate and purchase a property for remodel. She was very helpful with the negotiations, pricing perspective and working with a somewhat difficult seller. Thanks, Pegi!!!
Turtle Rock Seller Jan 1, 2017

Turtle Rock Seller Mar 29, 2017
Pegi is a pro. She understands all aspects of the very complicated and changing real estate sales process. And, as important, she understands and can manage difficult buyers. She manages the process and people with a cool head and a smile. We had a very difficult buyer, and she managed them beautifully and concluded the sale. Bravo, Pegi!
Turtle Rock Seller Jun 9, 2016
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.
Turtle Rock Renter Apr 10, 2017
I was in a situation where I needed to find a place to rent immediately and it happened to be over the holidays. I called Pegi and she returned my call almost immediately. Even though she had a lot going on due to the holidays, she made time for me and worked extra hours to show me several options then helped me choose a place that I could afford. I ended up moving in to my new place 2 days later. Pegi not only knows Turtle Rock exceptionally well, she knows and has good relations with the other realtors in this area too. This coupled with her hard work are two great reasons for me to highly recommend Pegi.
Fremont Seller May 27, 2017
Our family will very highly recommend Pegi and her team to anyone. We were more than pleased. She was honest, and treated potential buyers with honesty. She and the team were attentive, knowledgable, professional, kind and easy to work with. Pegi researched questions when she didn't know the answers. Our parents had lived in their home since 1954, and it sold within a couple of months in May 2017. Thank you, Pegi, for making the process easy and pleasant. Thank you Team. Jo Ann S
Repeat Buyer & Seller Jul 10, 2017
We have worked with Pegi for the past 8 years on various transactions, including selling, purchasing and leasing out multiple homes. We are consistently impressed with her knowledge of the real estate market and her professionalism.

She has gone above and beyond in all of our transactions, regardless of the size of the transaction. We highly recommend her.
Aliso Viejo Buyer & Seller Jul 22, 2017
Pegi has helped represent me on several real estate properties in Irvine and Aliso Viejo. She is a professional and a pleasure to work with.

Turtle Rock Seller Aug 6, 2017
We highly recommend Pegi and her team! She sold our house in the Turtle Rock community, and all went very smoothly! Her marketing was top notch, and her professionalism and knowledge made us feel very comfortable. Her team was respectful of our time during showings, and mindful of the fact that we had our little dog to care for during these times. We hadn't sold a house in 25 years, and she walked us through the entire process, making sure we felt comfortable and confident along the way. Thank you, Pegi, for making the sale of our home such a positive experience!
Dan David Aug 8, 2017

Turtle Rock Seller Aug 21, 2017
Pegi worked tirelessly to find us the right home in Turtle Rock. She explained each area's pros and cons. She was quickly able to understand what we were looking for and help us find a great house. She seems to know everyone, either selling or thinking of selling, which meant she really knew the market well. She and her team were always attentive to the details of our transactions to make everything work smoothly, and attentive to our needs, as well. They were supportive and gave us excellent advice. I would recommend Pegi and her team at to buy or sell a house for you.

Evelyn Aizenberg Feb 17, 2018
We were very happy with Pegi. She is extremely knowledgeable about the real estate market and about the process of selling (or buying) a home. Pegi worked really hard for us, preparing our house for the sale, and did a lot of the "dirty work" herself. She had no problem spending hours rearranging the furniture in my house, and even bringing in many decor items she owns. Pegi was fair and attentive, listened to what was important to us, and did her best to accommodate us. Pegi was very patient with us, and never made us feel like we were "too much". We highly recommend Pegi!!!
Corona Del Mar Buyer & Seller Feb 18, 2018
We have used Pegi for many years, both in selling homes and in new purchases. Her knowledge and expertise in different home markets is excellent and we feel she is very willing to work long and hard for both the buyer and sellers to reach positive results. Her contacts, from stagers and home photographers, to plumbers and handyman are invaluable! Pegi is very friendly and professional and not only do we highly recommend her, we would definitely use her again!
Boaz Yang Feb 25, 2018
We love Pegi and her entire team. They listen to you, keep you fully informed throughout the entire process.

Pegi will tell you as is, there's never a time you are not part of the process. And Pegi's marketing team is outstanding in getting your property the most exposure with all means and available channels. Pegi will give you the best real estate transaction selling experience! We love Pegi and her entire team!
Turtle Rock Buyer Feb 28, 2018
Pegi and her team helped with both the purchase of new home and sale of old home. Very knowledgeable, overall and of the local area in particular. Professional and responsive. First time going through a real estate transaction in over 15 years, so we had a lot of questions. Was patient and helpful every step of the way. We highly recommend!
Galina Mar 1, 2018
Pegi DiRienzo was our broker with the recent sale of our home in Turtle Rock. We had our home listed for sale with another broker for three months before we changed to Pegi. She spent considerable amount of time with us to help us present our home to make it more attractive to potential buyers. She introduced us to special craftsmen who came to our house to fix small problems and make it more presentable to buyers. Within 30 days we had multiple offers and excepted offer from a good buyer. Our escrow was less than one month and Pegi helped both, the buyer and seller to overcome the small issues that arise in any escrow. We strongly recommend considering Pegi and her team if you are interested in selling your home.
Turtle Rock Buyer Mar 14, 2018
Pegi helped us buy a home in Turtle Rock. She was knowledgeable about the market, respectful of our tight time schedule, attentive to every step of the transactions, patient with different questions from the ever beginning to the end. She is experienced, enthusiastic and helpful indeed! HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!!
Michael Razzano Apr 10, 2018
Pegi is an excellent realtor! She knows the market extremely well and handles the entire process in a way that is easy to understand and smooth from start to finish. I definitely recommend Pegi and look forward to working with her again in the future.
University Park Seller Jun 11, 2018
Simply put, Pegi and her staff are on top of it. They are extremely organized, detailed, service-oriented, and able to get things done. The level of competence cannot be overstated. Thank you Pegi for helping us with the sale of our old home and the purchase of our new home. It was not easy to do, but you made it look easy.
Quail Hill Buyer Jun 1, 2018
Pegi was so helpful in our home search. We've been looking for over a year, and she was always there (or someone from her team) to help us look at homes. When we finally got an offer accepted, everything went so smoothly. She and her team coordinated everything needed for escrow, and kept on top of deadlines. We are super glad we found Pegi, and would definitely have her as our realtor if we ever are in the market again!
Turtle Rock Seller Jul 5, 2018
Working with Pegi and her team of experts was a very pleasant process. We live out of state and had to sell our parents’ home after a death. Pegi, and her team went above and beyond to sell The house. Since we were not in California, they did many extra jobs to help us. They arranged to have small repairs done, were present to meet with people working to empty the house, and worked and collaborated with a neighbor to accomplish tasks that needed to be completed. Everyone was knowledgeable, especially about the Turtle Rock community, and very professional. It was a difficult time for our family and we felt comfortable relying on Pegi to take care of details. Her team is so kind and sweet and it was so nice to have people who genuinely cared about us. They all are very down to earth and it was easy to work with them all.
Turtle Rock Seller Jul 5, 2018
We recently sold our home through Pegi and her group. Her whole team (Kelsey, Parker and many more) is wonderful and easy to reach. They are very experienced and do a great job from start to finish. From the onset in preparing the house for sale until the last day (and beyond), they helped us along the way with attention to every detail. The team works so well together, have a wide range of resources and gets the job done. Pegi and Kelsey are always available, with an impressive response rate/time. Pegi has a vast knowledge of the real estate market in the area, and knows all the ins and outs of the business. Kelsey is super organized and helped us stay on top of all the paperwork. Not only are they true professionals with integrity, they are empathetic, easy to work with, always pleasant and make the business of selling and buying seem like fun!
Fullerton Buyer Jul 16, 2018
Where to begin with Pegi and her amazing team? Pegi is probably one of the best (if not THE best) real estate agents in Southern CA. As first-time homebuyers, my husband I were very nervous about the entire process--everything from finding the right home, negotiating a price, and finally securing the home. Pegi, however, made the process so easy and carefree for us. She is not your typical real estate agent--she really makes her customers' needs her priority and genuinely wants you to be happy. She must have shown us dozens of homes all over Orange County (we were quite indecisive), and always with patience, grace, and loads of helpful information. She was never overbearing, pushy, or rushing us to make a decision. At one point rather late in the process, we abruptly had to change the city in which we were searching for a home, and yet Pegi very patiently went along for the ride and helped us with all the research we needed in the new area. She is always very responsive to calls/emails/text...she is one of the hardest-working, most honest real estate agents we know, and we have met many at this point. She truly feels like family now because we trust her so much. When it came time to finalize details and paperwork, Pegi and her team went through everything with us (knowing this was our first home) to ensure all the details were correct and fair. In short, Pegi gave us the peace of mind and direction we needed for this very important and life-changing process. We would highly recommend her without any reservations whatsoever to anyone in search of a home in Southern CA.
Woodbridge Seller Nov 3, 2018
Pegi took over my listing after I got rid of a horrible agent. She was truly masterful; she immediately grasped my property, how to best market it, and what I needed. Professional staging; professional photography, gorgeous marketing materials, and we were off to the races! A broker preview the first day of listing; 18 brokers and 4 of their clients. One of the 4 placed a full price offer the first day. It didn't end there. Pegi and her staff were there every step of the way through and beyond close of escrow. She handled the inspections, the appraisers, the walk-through; you name it. And by the way, she and each of her team were charming and professional throughout. She is absolutely the best agent out there. Don't hire ANYONE else!
Turtle Rock Seller Nov 4, 2018
We love Pegi. She is fantastic and her team is super efficient. We were out of country during the process of selling our home but did not have any problems. Quick response, detailed information despite of time differences. We definitely recommend Pegi!!!
Turtle Rock Buyer Nov 4, 2018
Pegi and her team did an outstanding job in representing us throughout the house search, negotiation and closing processes. Pegi was extremely well prepared and proactive. She was always available and she walked the extra mile more than once to ensure we have all necessary information to make the best decision. We have moved a couple of times within the US and several times internationally, and the level of customer care and professionalism demonstrated by Pegi and her team was exceptional.
Newport Beach Buyer Nov 7, 2018
Pegi is a wonderful realtor and person to work with. It took me many months to decide on exactly what I wanted and she stuck with me the whole time. She showed me many options and was even able to get me into similar properties that were not on the market as a comparison. When we went into escrow, her team was efficient and very communicative. It made the whole process painless and easy. Even my mortgage broker was impressed!
Turtle Rock Seller Dec 12, 2018
Pegi handled the sale of our home from the preparation of the property, prior to listing, to the the closing as a highly qualified Real Estate Agent we have ever seen. Starting with a highly qualified photographer, a precise and objective description of the property, an impressive brochure, an aggressive marketing and advertising campaign, frequent open house events, a great availability for showings, courteous and objective presentation of the property to potential buyers and brokers. Her great knowledge of the real estate market, is the result of more 20 years experience in the field that allowed her to acquire masterful skills for patiently negotiating and closing with the optimum and yet realistic price. We strongly recommend Pegi and her Team.
Turtle Rock Seller Dec 15, 2018
Pegi did a masterful job of selling our house. She helped set just the right (high) price which resulted in a sale within a week or two of our first open house. She directed the staging, gave us excellent advice on what to fix up, and directed the work of minor repairs and presenting the house. Also she is a fun person to interact with. We moved into our new house first, and then sold the old one, and she and her associates were always available and easy to reach. She also knows a lot about the area.
Buyer & Seller in Turtle Rock Nov 14, 2013
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!
D Razzano Jun 6, 2019
Pegi and her team went well above what was asked when helping me to purchase my first home. She toured the properties with me and negotiated with the buyer to get certain issues fixed well before I moved in. Pegi and her team made the process of buying a first home extremely easy and smooth. I work a job which has me in the office 65-75 hours/week and Pegi was able to take a lot of the work from first time home buying off my shoulders. Thank you!
Malia M - Turtle Rock Seller Jun 6, 2019
Pegi sold our dad's condo which he had owned for many years. We have worked with other real estate agents before. Pegi far surpassed our expectations. She was remarkably knowledgeable about every aspect of the sales process, immediately available for questions and issues, and provided excellent counsel. I would recommend Pegi to others without hesitation!
Mike O - Turtle Ridge Seller Mar 19, 2019
Pegi was great!! Very thoughtful and trustworthy throughout the process. Her market knowledge, especially for Irvine and Turtle Rock and Turtle Ridge areas is commendable. The process, including escrow, was managed impeccably. Her team, from Operations through escrow and all the way to closing do a fantastic job. If I bought or sold another home, Pegi's team will do it for me.
Peg W - Turtle Rock Seller Feb 24, 2019
Pegi and her team were amazing. They were extremely responsive and very sensitive to my husband and my wishes. She was very detail oriented and took care of everything. Advertising was widespread and effective as our home sold very quickly. Last but not least, Pegi was fun to work with!
Turtle Rock Seller Jun 8, 2019
We met Pegi 8 years ago when she helped us buy a house. It was such a good experience then that when it came time to sell our home, she was the obvious choice. She was incredibly organized, professional, responsive and helpful; she also had a wonderful team. She was insightful, especially when it came to negotiating.
Shannon - Turtle Rock Buyer & Seller Nov 19, 2019
Pegi was amazing to work with and would be quick to respond to any texts or emails with answers to questions. She was able to sell our house with just one open house and get us our asking price. She also helped us find our new home quickly. She has a lot of experience and would point out good and bad things when we looked at perspective homes that we may not have picked up on without her expertise. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for an agent and would definitely return to her in future.
Turtle Rock Buyer Nov 20, 2019
We worked with Pegi DiRenzo to purchase our home in Turtle Rock. She was extremely knowledgeable, gave us fantastic advice and was truly our best advocate in every way. Her negotiation skills served us well, and she genuinely cares about making sure your best interest is at heart. Pegi is a pleasure to work with, and we are so grateful for her efforts in making the whole process seamless.
M. Yang - Buyer Nov 20, 2019
Pegi helped us get our ideal house. The home we are trying to buy had multiple cash offer, but we had to get a loan which took long process. However, Pegi communicated with the owner and convinced him that we are the best buyer. She is professional, friendly and helpful.
T. Dunn - Turtle Rock Seller
Pegi sold our house quickly at a price close to our asking. She was very helpful and friendly throughout the process. We would happily recommend her to others.
Turtle Rock Buyer
We worked with Pegi for about 6 months and she helped us find our forever home. She went above and beyond. A+++ service from beginning to end. Thank you Pegi!
M. Clark - Turtle Rock Seller
Pegi is extremely knowledgeable regarding the Irvine and Turtle Rock markets. She developed a very impressive marketing plan, was responsive to inquiries and questions (and provided frequent updates on potential buyers and their feedback), and helped us set our home up for success. Although the market was soft and it took some time to get from listing to close, we still had a very good experience with Pegi and her team. Thanks Pegi!
Susan - Turtle Rock Seller
I recently sold my home with Pegi and her team, Pegi and her team did a fantastic job! I had moved out of the area while Pegi and her team went to work selling my home. She took care of everything to make the sale of my house happen. I ended up getting three offers! The marketing and communication was outstanding. I would not hesitate to recommend Pegi to anyone wishing to sell their home. Thank-you Team Pegi!!
Barbara G. - Turtle Rock Seller Nov 20, 2019
This is my second sales transaction with Pegi, she always goes that extra mile. She's is very accessible to my texts and calls. She's extremely detailed, supportive and conscientious. She did a very professional job on marketing my home. She also has a positive attitude about everything and her enthusiasm is contagious!

"Extraordinary," "goes above and beyond," "incomparable," "dedicated," "honest," "on top of it," "pleasant," "well-liked," "super-experienced," "passionate," - those are the phrases that come to mind when I think of PegiDirienzo. If you are looking for the very best real estate agent possible, hire Pegi DiRienzo - plain and simple. Stop your research. You may find someone as hardworking and experienced and dedicated and passionate as her but you will not find someone better. I am extremely particular and have high expectations and Pegi and her team exceeded them all. I sold my home in Turtle Rock. Take a look at her competitors' listings - literally EVERY single one is "lowest price detached home in Turtle Rock." If you want to sell your property for a record-setting low, hire her competitors. If you want to sell your property for top dollar or as close to it as humanly possible as fast as possible, hire Pegi. By the way my property did not fly off the shelves - it was a hard sell over several months and Pegi kept at it. She did EVERYTHING. She did EVERYTHING to move it - staged it, changed landscaping, painting, etc. Property didn't even need it but she did everything in her power to get buyers in the door and it worked. She is the best.
Turtle Rock Buyer Feb 11, 2020
I am in the real estate business for more than 10 years. Pegi is the most professional realtor I have ever met. During the transaction, Pegi explained every single detail of the property to make sure we understand it before we made an offer. When we were in escrow, we had some unexpected problems. Pegi was able to communicate with the seller and navigate us through the challenges. Overall, we are very impressed by Pegi's professionalism. We highly recommend using Pegi whether you are looking to buy or sell houses!
Diana P Jan 14, 2020
When it was time to sell my house several friends recommended Pegi. I was not disappointed. Pegi and her team were very professional and made the selling process go smoothly, Pegi is passionate about her real estate business and is clearly devoted to her clients.
Mark Jan 8, 2020
My mother fell Ill and I was in the position of having to sell the property and look after my mother. Pegi made it feel like all I had to do was look after my family. The process was quick and accommodating. Pegi is a kind soul and I am grateful to her.

Seller in Turtle Rock Apr 8, 2020
Pegi was always positive but realistic with us throughout the selling process of our home. She worked with many groups and marketing channels to get our house seen by as many potential buyers as possible. But what I liked most about Pegi is that she never gave up on the sale or on us. In fact, I really think she enjoys a challenge and is so self driven to get the best price on our home as possible that it felt like it was her personal quest! My wife and I so much enjoyed our experience with Pegi that she will always have a soft spot in our hearts. Thank you Pegi for a job well done!

Turtle Rock Seller: 25 Southern Wood Jul 25, 2020
Pegi and her team impressively closed our home sale at a neighborhood high during the height of COVID-19 stay-at-home directives. Through elements for which we have no control, Pegi artfully maintains calm, logic, and reason.   The sale or purchase of a home is an experience; it can be a positive experience or it can be a negative experience. Pegi brings positivity, understanding, and balance to each day of that experience. During a challenging time, Pegi was still able to create a memorable journey for our family.   From the moment you meet Pegi and her team, you feel the assurance of being in the best of hands. While Pegi has a team of seasoned and accomplished individuals, she personally oversees every detail from marketing to closing. She offers a level of comprehensive services and attention to detail unmet by any other: from staging, photos, floor plans, pricing, and showings to effective communications with buyers/sellers,  inspectors, appraisers, loan officers and escrow. Pegi is highly able in representing both parties simultaneously as her simple secret is the love of helping others, honesty, and hard work including attention to detail and putting the harder conversations on the table. Another brand unique to Pegi is that her team handles every single showing “in person” - no lockbox enabled self-tours. This allows her team to address any concerns of a potential buyer as they arise onsite. And sellers receive detailed weekly marketing and showings reports to optimize meaningful decision processes between agent and seller. Every week, Pegi’s team studies the current climate and puts into action an individual plan for that week and the coming weeks for each individual client.   Pegi treats everyone genuinely and with much warmth, including her competition. She always shows up with her “A” game! This has been only a positive experience.
Shady Canyon/Irvine Seller Jun 15, 2020
I sold my family home with Pegi's and her team's unmatched professionalism this past spring. This was the last in a series of real estate transactions that she shepherded me through. Not only did Pegi do a masterful job of marketing the property ( from design, colors, staging to on its line presence), she kept me updated regularly, and negotiated the deal smoothly through closing. But most importantly she recognized and respected the emotional and psychological impact of closing a chapter in your life that selling your home represents. I have recommended Pegi and her team to my friends, and all three of my sons have used her expertise to help them with their real estate needs. She is my go-to person for all things real-estate, and i consider her family.
Jeff P Oct 14, 2020
Pegi was extremely knowledgeable and responsive to every need. She goes out of her way for clients in every manner, and has many resources to help prepare your home for sale to receive it's highest possible offer.
Lucy Oct 12, 2020
My parents worked with Pegi DiRienzo as their buying agent and they were very happy with her service. She helped them in creating an effective offer. They were interested in purchasing a house in Turtle Rock that many other buyers were also interested in. Because Pegi had a relationship with the selling agent, and because she recommended a good offer price, my parents were able to have their offer accepted, which in this low inventory market was a big feat. Pegi was always very patient and pleasant with my elderly parents and they trusted her advice and guidance. We were very happy to be able to work with Pegi on this purchase transaction.
Joe & Cathy Oct 12, 2020
We could not be happier with Pegi’s service, she is the best. Seventeen years ago when Cathy and I were expecting our twin girls I met Pegi at one of her open house listings. She said, “I just sold this one, but I know of another that might be for sale.” She set up the meeting, we fell in love with the home that we affectionately called the Boo-Boo House - 17 years later the Twins are ready to graduate from High School and we were ready to downsize. We called Pegi, she did her magic staging and marketing. In short order, she had over 30 showings and within five days she had 3 offers. We accepted one and all went smoothly. In addition, she sold a neighbors home within that time period, sold them one of her other listings, and listed and sold another one of our neighbor’s homes. Rumor has it she has another one lined up, all in the same community. What an incredible realtor, negotiator, and businesswoman. She does it all the old fashion way, she works hard, knows her market, and understands the economics of the sale. Continued good luck Pegi. Warm regards, Joe and Cathy Martinez Turtle Rock Summit

Pegi helped us sell and purchase a home in a competitive market. We couldn't have done it without her years of experience and knowledge of local neighborhoods. Would highly recommend working with her!
Hermine Aug 26, 2020
Pegi helped us sell our home in record time for a record price! She was knowledgable, attentive to our needs and made herself available to us. We have worked with Pegi in the past and will work with her on future real estate deals. We loved working with Pegi and her team!
Turtle Rock Seller Nov 24, 2020
Pegi is the consummate professional from beginning to end. From the the first meeting, she is involved every step of the way, from preparing the house to closing and is always available with her expert advice. She guided us through the selling process and dealt with any issues that arose.
Turtle Rock Family Nov 22, 2020
With my Mother's recent passing, we decided to sell the house that she had lived in for 34 years. We looked at various realtor options but chose Pegi for several reasons. We obviously wanted the best price possible but we did not want to put a lot of money into pre sale renovations to upgrade things and someone was living in the house at the time. Pegi was very helpful in telling us what we needed to fix or touch up at minimal expense, providing worker contacts with very competitive bids. She helped us by recommending how to minimally stage the property using the items on hand. She also accommodated the occupants schedule with regards to worker visits and client showings. Many view their house as an investment, but this was also our home. To Pegi, this was not just a monetary transaction. Her philosophy was to match the house with the proper buyer and she did that. As a result, we were happy with the price we received, but I'm confident the new owners will also be happy with their new home. I understand why Pegi is the #1 agent in Turtle Rock Area.
Michael R. Nov 13, 2020
Pegi is THE BEST agent in all of Orange County! She knows the market so well, is kind and treats her clients exceptionally well, provides honest and timely feedback on the whole process. We’ve worked with Pegi many times before and can’t recommend her enough!
Irvine Seller Nov 4, 2020
Pegi and her team were great to work with. She was diligent, responsive and a real go-getter in terms of getting several potential buyers to show interest in our home. She also went above and beyond the call to assist in arranging a house cleaner and a moving company once our sale was complete. I would highly recommend her for your next home sale or purchase.
Jeff Oct 29, 2020
Pegi is without question the best Real Estate Professional you will ever meet. She has helped me over the years with real estate purchases and in-between rentals. You will be hard pressed to find professional representation that equals her amazing talents from start to finish. She eliminates the stresses that can be associated with finding and purchasing a new home. I will never use anyone else because I found my unicorn. JO
