Sold a Single Family home in 2021 in Margaretville, NY.

Peggy and Meade are fabulous realtors to work with and I highly recommend them both along with Phyllis Whitehouse Frome who also is an amazing agent at The Catskill Dream Team. All three are professional, friendly, knowledgeable, great communicators, and savvy negotiators. Our house was only on the market for a week when 7 offers came in. Peggy and Meade helped us navigate the offers and we feel that we got the best deal possible thanks to them. I would work with them again in a heartbeat and recommend them to anyone interested in buying or selling a home in the area.

Review for Member: Joshua Slater

Josh was an excellent partner throughout all phases of our land buying process. His attention to detail, work ethic, and overall knowledge of the area helped us find and purchase our dream lot. Josh even helped shovel my rental car out when it got stuck in the snow. I would 100% recommend Josh for your real estate needs.

Laura is the best if you want a smooth transaction. She did everything, made a video and did all the marketing. I was very impressed with her knowledge, not to mention she is quite pretty. I was very satisfied with the whole process. I would recommend her highly if you want to sell your property with no trouble at all. I thank you Laura again for a wonderful job. Great experience !!

Bought a Single Family home in 2021 in Margaretville, NY.

Peggy was an absolute angel who walked my parents and me, as their proxy, through every aspect of purchasing their lovely new home. She was super responsive to their needs as folks in their golden years, and to my needs as the long-distance coordinator of my parents' transaction. She intuitively understood the special requirements of clients in their 80s, and for that I will always be grateful. She went over and above the "simple" tasks of negotiation and coordination inherent in any real estate transaction and made sure things like hand rails were installed in the new house for their safety. She made every step of the process as simple and easy to understand as possible for my parents and was always available to help out with things that aren't typically thought of as the part of the job, like helping out with a furniture delivery, moving trucks, referrals - anything we needed, Peggy was there to help! She's a gem! HIGHLY RECOMMEND!! You won't be disappointed. She's simply lovely.

Sold a Single Family home in 2021 in Pine Hill, NY.

Meade and Peggy were AMAZING to work with on the sale of our Catskills home and truly live up to their "Dream Team" name and MORE! From our first meeting with Meade, we were super impressed with their incredibly well-informed, professional, detailed and very strategic approach to helping us understand the most up-to-date area real estate insights and the optimal way to market and sell our home. Throughout the process, their communication with us was impeccable, timely and always informative. Peggy showcased our home via beautiful photographs for the listings and then via video to the ultimate buyers who were across the country at the time. And Meade dedicated significant time to position our property in a most motivating way and then skillfully negotiated an agreement in record time that was wonderful for both us, the sellers, and the buyers. Meade was then uber helpful between the contract and closing dates and successfully managed us to a positive closing. And there's more...beyond all of their wonderful professional traits, there was a much appreciated added bonus of getting to use their box truck to move our furnishings! We are truly THRILLED with Meade and Peggy and HIGHLY RECOMMEND the Catskill Dream Team for all of your real estate needs!

Bought a home in 2021 in NY 13731.

Peggy was the ultimate professional. My husband and I have worked with many realtors and Peggy was the best we have ever worked with from start to finish. From the beginning, she understood what we were looking for, showed us around, offered expert advice and ultimately helped us to make the right offer on our perfect vacation home. She was easy to communicate with throughout the process and negotiated for us up until closing. She was sure to check in after closing, welcome us to the neighborhood and offered contacts to assist us with our projects. We couldn't recommend her more! Thank you, Peggy--we look forward to seeing you in the neighborhood !

Sold a home in 2021 in NY 12441.

Peggy and Meade were responsive and service oriented. They created a plan which they executed successfully while keeping in constant communication. We received multiple offers above the asking price the first week of the listing. We went from initial listing to closing in less than 4 months. Peggy did a great job helping us prepare the house to go on the market. She was always available for questions and concerns. I would highly recommend Meade and Peggy from the Catskill Dream Team.

Sold a Single Family home in 2021 in Andes, NY.

The Catskill Dream Team led by Peggy and Meade are without a doubt the most skilled, thoughtful, resourceful realtors we have ever worked with (in the Catskills and elsewhere). We recently worked with them for the third time (now one purchase and two sales) and they guided us to a very quick sale that was far above our asking price. All of the extras they have built into the business - such as the complimentary moving truck - are so helpful and show how they really go the extra mile. No one knows the Catskills market like they do and, on top of that, you’ll want to be friends with both of them. As previous buyers and sellers, we can’t recommend them highly enough and thank them so much for their expertise, guidance, and friendship.

Cricket is by far the best real estate agent we have worked with. She is very knowledgeable and extremely generous with her knowledge, very committed and eager to assist in reaching our personalized goal. Needless to say, after being outbid several times in this crazy market, Cricket was instrumental in securing a winning bid on a perfect property for us. We could not be happier.

Sold a Single Family home in 2021 in Ponte Vedra Beach, FL.

We recently sold a home in the Catskills and selected Peggy and Meade as our brokers due to their professionalism and enthusiasm. They were well prepared, able to answer all our questions, have an excellent understanding of the area and a firm grasp on current market conditions. Their advice and pricing recommendations were spot-on, and their marketing plan well thought out. Their pictures - a key component in attracting buyers - were great! Their communication was amazing - quick responses (day or night), follow-up and kept us informed of progress throughout the process. This was a long-distance transaction for us and Meade and Peggy were incredibly helpful in simplifying and smoothing the logistics. Things that may seem small but are life-savers in a move - opening the house for inspectors and workers; getting someone to take care of the lawn. and the availability of a box truck to move things, to name just a few. Their knowledge, service and helpfulness were over-the-top. While we were on the sell side this time, I am quite sure their skills would be just as amazing on the buy side! We have worked with many agents over the years all over the Northeast. Peggy and Meade are at the top of our list and we recommend them without hesitation. Truly exceptional and a pleasure to work with. They are THE CATSKILL DREAM TEAM!

Cricket Keys of the Catskills Dream Team helped us find our dream property. Cricket took the time to listen to us and learn about what qualities we wanted in the land. She met us at a time that was convenient and kept in touch - was highly responsive throughout the whole process. She is knowledgeable about the area and provides a well researched list of contractors with whom to consult. Moreover, she's a delight and her warm personality made the experience stress free. We knew we were in good hands with Cricket and we also knew we were being shown exceptional properties. Our heartfelt thanks, Cricket!

Phyllis was the answer to my prayers when I listed my property in High Mount. I interviewed another agent that was more interested it just selling and getting his commission. She was professional, knowledgeable and walked me through the process with patience and understanding. She did a superb job on all levels, from show casing the home, negotiating, and closing on the property. Phyllis always had MY best interest in the process. I hope to work with her again in the future.

Phyllis was an excellent partner in finding our new home. After about 8 months of hard work in visiting lots of listings, we finally got one. Phyllis helped us in the search of new places and was a person to trust since day one. She was very communicative all the time and stayed with us during all the process. She has contacts and knows the Catskills as the palm of her hand. I would recommend her anytime. It was very easy to work with her.

5 stars for Phyliss Whitehouse Frome! Phyllis was so helpful and professional during my home listing. Because I live full-time in Florida , I was not able to be there during the majority of the process. She took care of everything. She was very attentive to my needs and made the closing go very smoothly. I highly recommend Phyllis to potential buyers or sellers.

There are real estate agents and then there is Meade Camp and the Catskill Dream Team. Meade and his team were on top of every detail regarding our listing. When there were no offers for several weeks and we discussed lowering the price, Meade advised to be patient and within a week we had two full price offers from a well qualified buyers. Meade knows the area and the market. I have dealt with many real estate agents over the years and Meade and the Catskill Dream Team are on the top of my list.

Review for Member: Aydin Cubukcu - REALTOR ASSOCIATE

I enthusiastically endorse Aydin Cubukcu for all your real estate needs. He recently brought to closure two challenging house sales for me. He inherited a difficult situation and worked hard to complete the deals. Aydin’s growing local knowledge, together with exception communication skills and familiarity with rules and regulations were key to the negotiations. I was an out of state seller and he monitored the properties for me, making sure they remained in great shape even through the worst of winter weather. His dedicated approach to the entire deal was wrapped in conscientiousness and persistence. Clearly he has the passion to serve those who have entrusted him with their real estate transactions. He is a very nice guy and it was a pleasure to work with Aydin.

Review for Member: Aydin Cubukcu - REALTOR ASSOCIATE

From the warm personality to very organized and detailed communication style — it was simply the best you could ask for in a real estate agent experience. We found Aydin via referral and were sold from the first 'hello'. Even with Covid in the mix, we always felt comfortable meeting with Aydin and for the sale of our home as well as trust him to handle the viewing process with utmost care and respect to CDC guidelines. Aydin was not only thorough in his work, the selling process and communication with all parties involved — he was also super flexible and supportive when needed (as we were selling our property in terrible winter weather and as we lived full time far from the property being sold). We are now also working with Aydin as our buying agent and on the flip side, he is knowledgable with the areas we are interested in and has been just superb in finding the gems that meet our criteria.You are in good hands with Aydin 100%.

Cricket was absolutely wonderful to work with, and would not hesitate for a second to work with her again. During our search, she had a better idea of what we were looking for than we did, but was also flexible and helped us see every home we were interested in. We had a long search (hot market!), but when we finally went into contract on a home she was so incredibly responsive and patient with every question and concern we had. She helped us make our Catskills home owning dream a reality, and while we love our home we're sad we won't be spending weekends on the hunt with her!

Cricket worked with us in finding and buying our first home and we had a great experience. She went above and beyond to guide us through the process, explaining the ins and outs of the real estate market every step of the way, making sure that we had the best information to guide our decisions. Cricket is a thoughtful listener and took our needs to heart throughout the process. We saw a lot of properties in a time when the market was at it’s busiest point and having Cricket’s knowledge was instrumental when the time came to place our offer and position ourselves with a strong bid. During our contract and closing she pointed out to us all the documents needed and facilitated the connection between us our team and the sellers making the whole experience a breeze. A couple of weeks before our closing date we had a family emergency and had to close remotely, Cricket’s thoughtfulness and quick thinking helped us figure out how to keep everything moving during a stressful family event and her kindness in doing it gave us all the assistance and comfort we could ask for! During this journey, we’re glad to say we found a new house and good friend! We strongly recommend Cricket and are sure anyone who works with her will have an experience as good as ours!

Sold a Multi Family home in 2020 in Margaretville, NY.

After meeting with many local realtors I decided on Meade and Peggy being impressed with their “can do” attitude. I was looking to sell a commercial building with commercial and residential tenants in place. The building was partially renovated- mostly the unseen mechanicals etc. so it didn’t “show well”. Meade was like a steamroller bringing in many interested parties who backed away from something that was not a turn key operation. As I showed my disappointment he kept counseling me that it just takes one buyer who sees the vision of what the building will be. Well he found those buyers, and saw the process through a six month closing process slowed by pandemic restrictions, lending rules etc etc. If you are serious about closing a transaction whether buying or selling, this is truly the “Dream Team” that will get it done.

Phyllis assisted us in buying a second home in Delhi, NY. She really listened to what we were interested in and showed us relevant properties. This saved us A LOT of time and effort! Everyone Phyllis recommended (attorney, loan officer, inspector) was also highly competent and efficient. This allowed us to close on our home quickly during a very busy time for real estate sales. Phyllis is calm and personable. She was fully attentive when working with us. There was no question that we could not ask. She is also a fun and enjoyable person to spend time with.

We worked with Peggy and Meade to buy a house in Roxbury over the summer / fall of 2020. As first time home buyers, we needed a lot of coaching through the process and they were a dream to work with. They were extremely hands on, spent as much time as we needed discussing negotiation strategies and process steps, and went above and beyond doing things we never expected from a realtor! They even now have a box truck clients can use post-sale to pick up large purchases in the area. We are externally happy with our decision to work with The Catskill Dreamteam and now, happily in our new Catskills home thanks to them!

Laura was an awesome agent for us as first-time home buyers. We had already found the home but the seller was quite...particular so Laura still had to do a ton of negotiating and discussion. Her list of service providers in the area has been so helpful both before our closing and since we moved in. We were also new to the area and she has made us feel welcome. I hope to see her again after the pandemic.

Review for Member: Katherine "Cricket" Keys - REALTOR ASSOCIATE

Working with Cricket was AMAZING! From our first meeting (and even in communication before) she made us feel very confident and at ease. As first time homebuyers we were cautious and nervous about what to expect. The task of finding the right home for us felt overwhelming. Then we met Cricket and our outlook changed. Her extensive knowledge of the area, inventory of homes, real estate ins and outs, and style/condition of properties made our search so much fun! Instead of going into a stress spiral and driving home in silence after seeing homes, we were always energized and excited about the possibilities. She helped us pinpoint the style of home we wanted (even when we were questioning) and narrowed it down to EXACTLY what we had in our minds, always offering her honest opinion on properties we were interested in. She walked us through every step of the offer and buying process and answered our one million questions with a smile. She is very communicative, always quick to reply and helped us assemble an A-team of professionals from inspection to closing. The result being our mountainside dream cabin surrounded by an evergreen forest and stream. Cricket's fun and positive energy is contagious and we enjoyed hanging out with her during showings just as much as we did seeing properties. We really can't say enough good things about our experience and are just so grateful to have had her as our real estate agent and even more so to now call her a friend. If you get the chance to work with Cricket, jump at it! You will be very glad you did!

Sold a Single Family home in 2020 in Andes, NY.

Where to begin! The extent to which Peggy went above and beyond throughout the process of listing, showing, and finally closing on the sale of our second home truly astounded us. Being a second home, we were often not around to make sure the house was in perfect condition all the time. But we didn't have to worry with Peggy at the helm. She always made sure to arrive early before showings to take care of any of the small stuff and at times would even go a day earlier to give us plenty of heads up on any of the bigger stuff that needed our attention. She even managed to replace a hanging chandelier without us! Having Peggy in charge of this listing gave us such peace of mind, we always felt that she cared for this home as much as we did. Despite a very long and arduous wait for the perfect buyers, both Meade and Peggy never once expressed any anxiousness or impatience. They respected our stance in regards to "waiting it out" and eventually managed to connect us with the perfect buyers. On top of all these attributes, Peggy's experience, her extensive network of contacts in the area, and her warm gracious style make her a truly invaluable asset when it comes to selling your home!

Review for Member: Katherine "Cricket" Keys - REALTOR ASSOCIATE

Cricket helped my partner and I buy our first home and we are BEYOND happy with our experience working with her. We're honestly kind of sad it's all over because we loved working with her so much, ha! She really was an absolute dream agent. We were having trouble navigating this competitive market and Cricket not only made us feel heard, but she went above and beyond to find us our dream home. Given we were first time homebuyers, we had a lot of questions throughout the process. Cricket was always happy to help and had such a positive attitude. She welcomed us and made us feel like friends, not just another business transaction. For that, and for so many other reasons, we are very grateful to have found her. Needless to say, we highly recommend working with her!

Sold a Single Family home in 2020 in Denver, NY.

We had a flawless experience with Peggy and Meade when we sold our vacation home. From listing to signed contract; 6 days. What more can you ask for? Meade/Peggy did their research when they developed their recommended listing price and were very knowledgeable and patient about explaining how they arrive at that figure. Underlying their recommendation was their knowledge of the market and number of showings they anticipated. The strategy they developed to list our home worked perfectly and we received and offer that we were very happy with. During the closing process, Peggy and Meade we in constant communication with us and helped move the process along. Our calls were answered immediately and email within the hour. A huge comfort because we were long distance sellers. My wife and I highly recommend the Catskills Dream Team (Peggy and Meade) as anyone’s (buyer/seller) real estate agents. Although our experience with them was selling our home, we’re certain they would apply the same passion, knowledge and service to a Buyer’s engagement.

Cricket helped me make my first real estate purchase and I couldn't be happier. She was invested in my search in a way that I hadn't experienced with other agents and really went above and beyond; looking into zoning on my behalf, helping me to negotiate a competitive bid, and (most of all) being genuinely excited about my dream of having an off-grid cabin and small farm. I would heartily recommend working with Cricket to anyone looking for a home or land in the Catskills!

We can't say enough good things about Cricket! Besides great marketing skills she has the perfect personality one should look for in a realtor. She gets excited about your property and conveys that to both buyers and sellers. She recently listed (and sold for above ask) our vacation property in the Catskills. Our main residence is 3 hours away and thought the sale would be a nightmare but Cricket went above and beyond to make sure everything went smoothly! She is an absolute dream to work with!

The decision to sell a much loved family home was not easy. I met early on in the process with Meade, who made it clear that the go/no go decision, and the timing, would be up to me. When I did make the decision to go forward, he and Peggy explained the process in detail, and then set about to create a lovely online presence for the home. The managed numerous showings and multiple offers all with the complications of COVID. They also analyzed all of the offers so that I would understand what each meant, and in the lead up to the closing handled the million details necessary. I would highly recommend them for their knowledge and expertise, calm demeanor, and for their kindness.

Bought a Single Family home in 2020 in Arkville, NY.

We found Peggy & Meade through Zillow, and decided to reach out to them based on the high volume of amazing reviews on this site. It felt a little risky (just since it wasn't a direct referral), but we made the BEST decision. Our initial zoom call (due to COVID) with Peggy immediately put us at ease; she listened to what we wanted, respected our budget, and within 24 hrs we had a list of homes to give her feedback on. We had appointments to view the properties by the weekend. When we found the house we wanted to put an offer in on, we called Peggy right away and she gave us incredibly valuable guidance and put in our offer immediately. Overall Peggy made the process seamless and ENJOYABLE, with the kindness, warmth, and efficiency that she brings! She is a local expert and has guidance for any and all questions we had from inspections to lunch spots. We really can't recommend her more - you will be in truly exceptional care.

Peggy Bellar has represented me in 3 transactions over the past 2 years As my listing agent for 2 of my homes she had me under contract in under a week with both homes. I received an offer that was above asking as well as a full price offer. My buying experience was just as exciting, Peggy knew all the answers to my many questions and had the resources that I needed when work needed to be done.

Peggy is a true professional and very proactive. We had first met her about selling our house but the market was not strong. This was in Sep 2019. So we decided to rent it for ski season. In May 2020 she reached out to say NYC folks looking to buy in Catskills because of desire to leave city or just have a nice place to relax. We listed with her and we had multiple offers within days. Peggy took care of everything and made it so easy. We will be using her again to sell some other properties.

Meade and Peggy were honest, direct, helpful, and very kind; they truly were partners in this sometime harrowing process, getting me to the finish line with grace, wit, and real support all the way. Peggy's photos were gorgeous, absolutely making the most of my home, and her willingness to bring in expert opinion on one of my home's challenges was an example of their overall willingness to go the extra mile. Their honest, up front advice about the few measures I needed to take to make my home more attractive to buyers were spot on, and Meade's ability to handle Miss Thing over here was greatly appreciated, and a sign not only of his intellect but of his sophistication as well. A great and true team of realtors, with excellent communication skills - I felt so taken care of - and heard, with regard to my concerns and goals throughout the process. Would absolutely work with them again. Highly recommend them to anyone looking to sell - or buy - a home.

Meade and Peggy are incredible, and it was truly a joy to have them as our real estate agents. From the first phone consult with Meade, where we described what we were looking for in the Catskills, to the final walk-through, Meade made every step of the way as easy and pain-free as possible. Meade was responsive, detail-oriented, and a pleasure to work with. He explained every step of the way, which was sometimes necessary since we were first time buyers. We appreciated that he would tell us what properties were, and weren’t, worth driving up to see. We were grateful for his masterful knowledge of the market, which was very helpful when making an offer and negotiating the purchase price. I can’t imagine a better real estate agent than Meade! We love our home and are truly thankful to Meade and Peggy for making it happen.

Laura sold a property of friends in Unadilla, New York, in November, five months before she sold our house. We recommended her to them. Two months after that, we recommended Laura to another couple in East Meredith, New York, because we have complete confidence in her abilities. She is honest, straight-forward, and she works hard to sell your property and to get you the best price. Laura kept in touch with us and we were aware that she was knowledgeable about the real estate market in our area. She is not one to list your property and then disappear. She is a serious professional and will sell your property!

Head and shoulders above the competition. I knew I could never work with anybody else. And they did not disappoint. They were awesome to work with! Meade helped me navigate the process, overcome the obstacles, and ultimately get what I wanted, which is a house I know I'm going to love. Peggy was on board with us every step of the way.

Meade is extremely approachable, easy to communicate with, and was an excellent source of information throughout our buying experience. We were initially quite daunted about beginning the process, but Meade immediately made us feel comfortable and answered all of our questions in a timely and clear manner. He was honest in helping us assess which homes met our criteria and might be right for us, and once we decided to make an offer Meade explained each step and helped us negotiate with the seller. His recommendations for local professionals was also spot on and invaluable, and we chose an excellent inspector, mortgage lender, and attorney based on his input and were so pleased with them all. We really appreciated Meade's extremely prompt responses to our emails and calls, and he went above and beyond in helping us research costs for some improvements we were considering as we decided on our offer.

As a nearly 200 year old former 1 room schoolhouse, my property needed a tailored marketing plan and approach to attract the right buyers. Peggy and Meade took this charge very seriously, and based on their knowledge and expertise were able to craft the listing and establish a marketing plan that led to both high visibility and significant exposure of the property with local agents and local and national media, which increased the traffic and visibility of the property. As a long-distance seller I really needed their support and they truly held my hand every step of the way.

Review for Former Member: Erik Johanson

Erik was immediately responsive to my inquiry. He quickly understood what I was looking for and selected properties appropriately. He walked me through much of the process from start to finish. Erik is also an extraordinary resource for information about everything that is happening in the area: geographically, historically, culturally, culinarily. Finally, he is a real pleasure to be around and an entertaining, kind person to spend hours with driving and visiting home after home. I'm grateful I was recommended him.

Review for Member: Trish Adams

Trish Adams was all we could wish for in a real estate professional--and more. She went far beyond our expectations. She was with us every step of the way through the process of selling our house. She got us a price for our house which was more than fair. Whatever repairs the buyers asked for before closing, she found someone to do it, and at a reasonable cost. If the repair work was slow, she was the one urging the workers on. If more needed to be done, she made sure it got done More importantly, she eased us through the stress and anxiety of selling a house with the concern and consideration of a friend. When the selling process was over, we couldn't thank her enough for efforts. She has our unqualified recommendation.

Review for Former Member: Erik Johanson

We engaged Erik Johanson to sell our home and he was outstanding in every way. Professional, prepared, tech savvy, responsive, courteous… to mention a few accolades. His social media presence was strong (which we hadn’t really thought about!) and he put a lot of work into our listing. When we first met with Erik he provided objective data regarding how many homes sell in the area, what buyers are looking for in a house (and what type of buyer is interested in our house), how long listings typically stay on the market, and provided very good comps. He helped to stage our house for the terrific photographs and videos that he took and then retouched and edited himself! He’s got a good eye. When we saw our listing we were blown away. His hard work really paid off - our listing looked amazing. Within 12 hours we had our first offer based on the listing alone. All cash and above the asking price. We were shocked. Within about a month we were at the closing. It was an amazing experience. We highly recommend Erik Johanson and have been singing his praises to all we know. It’s not always easy to sell a house (and in 12 hours seems impossible) but with Erik you’ve got a great start.

Laura understood how our house was different -- a vacation log home with beautiful grounds. She gave us good advice on what to fix up, how to price, and when to go to market, how and where to market it. We spent several months on improvements, then waited out the winter to list at the best time of year. We had an offer within a few days of the listing, and closed in about a month. We were very pleased with Laura, and recommend her.

Peggy & Meade presented a very thorough plan for how to sell my house and then executed on it. They walked me through the whole process. And because I had already moved to another city, they offered to take care of a few things at the house in my absence. They said it would sell above asking and it did. So that was great too. Along with being very professional and thorough, Peggy & Meade are very friendly, warm and strait-forward people. I knew I was in good hands after our first meeting.

Phyllis worked with my husband and I for over a year to help us find and buy our first home. She is patient, kind, attentive, and very knowledgeable about real estate and the Catskills. For a while we were looking at over 10 listings in a weekend. Phyllis was so supportive throughout every stage of the process. Buying a home can be nerve wracking, but she helped us through all of our fears and concerns. Phyllis is a pleasure to work with and I highly highly recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell a home in the Western Catskills.

Review for Member: Trish Adams

As a first-time home buyer, I didn’t know what to expect from the process—but I certainly did not anticipate purchasing a home to be as smooth, stress-free, and enjoyable as it was. That’s all thanks to Trish’s expertise and tenacious, warm personality. From the moment you’re first connected via email, Trish’s enthusiasm and dedication to her job shines through. She provides thoughtful listing recommendations and detailed insights into what to expect (which homes need work, are overpriced, etc.) so that you walk into viewings armed with knowledge. No surprises or wasted time! I was lucky to quickly find a home I loved and even luckier when the offer was accepted. That’s when Trish truly kicked into real-estate extraordinaire mode. She walked this clueless first-timer through every step of the process with such detail that the paperwork, legal, and financial details almost seemed to take care of themselves. It was a delight to receive her daily emails packed with reminders (“did you decide on a lawyer yet?”), recommendations (“here’s a lawyer I trust”), and a welcome dose of witty humor and cheerleading. Trish’s wonderful emails alone are worth working with her! Trish goes above and beyond during every interaction—her energy and drive is relentless. When I learned that I’d need to reinsulate the crawl space and replace a water pressure tank, Trish reached out to local plumbers and contractors to get cost estimates. And when I came down with a bout of cold feet, Trish didn’t waste a minute to call and talk through my hesitations without pressuring me in either direction. She truly personalized the process from start to closing—and even beyond, as she continued to email post-closing with “insider” advice, like who to contact to get a pass to the local transfer station. I could go on and on, but here’s the bottom line: If you want an easy and FUN home-buying experience in the Catskills, go with Trish. I’d work with her again in a heartbeat!

Review for Member: Trish Adams

I wish my sense of urgency to write this review matched that of Trish’s when approaching any area of her business. We bought a house in February 2019 (so I suppose I’m not completely terrible because being a new home owner is a lot of work!) and I wish I could scream from the Catskills mountaintops how amazing Trish is! We met Trish in October of 2017 when we first began our search for a home in the Catskills. Yes, you read that correctly, 2017. Trish stuck with us for nearly a year and a half and many up’s and down’s. That alone should speak volumes about her dedication and determination to find her clients the right home. During this time Trish became a resource for all things Catskills, a trusted confidant and a friend. She was always extremely professional, accommodating, helpful and quick to respond. She went above and beyond to ensure we ended up with the home of our dreams. She held our hands through the entire buying process and ensured we were utilizing the best lawyers, home inspectors, etc. to get optimum results. She always did her homework and was strategic in approaching negotiations. Even after the closing, Trish was there to point us in the right direction for things like snow plowing and trash removal. She is an invaluable asset to anyone buying or selling a home in the Catskills thanks to her knowledge of the area. If anything, we’re a little disappointed our search came to an end because we don’t get to talk to her as often as we’d like. If you want to work with someone who cares deeply and will treat you like a dear friend or family member, Trish is your gal! We cannot recommend her enough.

They had a very professional presentation and we knew right away they were the realtors we wanted to work with. They also made the whole experience fun! They were right on target with the home pricing and sold our house in less then the suggested time frame. There were many showings and they found just the right buyer for our beloved home. We would HIGHLY recommend them to anyone who wants to sell their home. They truly are the Dream Team

I will give Erik 10 stars because he is that amazing, sent from the realtor heavens! He is attentive, quick to reply to my needs and requests, and as a first time buyer I feel like he explains everything so clearly and patiently, even if I have to ask him a few times. I have worked with him for a while now, and though my budget is on the smaller side, he has treated me with the utmost care and thoughtfulness, as if I was buying the biggest house on the hill. He sends me listings he thinks I might like as soon as they come up, never pressures, and always has a sense of humor. He genuinely knows the lay of the land and you can tell he loves the Catskills. He is truly great at his job and wonderful to work with.

Peggy and Meade are without peer in Catskill Real Estate. They recently sold my home proceeding seamlessly from initial interview to closing with unimaginable charm and competence. The hallmark of our relationship was trust and confidence in their knowledge of the market, the region, and the value of my home. I admire their capacity to both listen and advise along the way. Particularly critical in our relationship was their guidance preparing the property for sale, highlighting the unique charms of my home, and managing the inevitable challenges that arise on the path to a mutually beneficial agreement between buyer and seller. On many occasions they went well beyond reasonable expectations to provide critical service and comforting support.

I’d like to say a few words of gratitude and to offer an objective review of the real estate services provided by Peggy Bellar and her partner Meade Camp. As a point of reference, I have bought and sold residential properties in Hawaii, Washington, California, Florida, Virginia and Maine. The services and professionalism provided through the Catskill Dream Team (Peggy and Meade and associates) were head and shoulders above anything else I’ve experienced in the marketing of real estate. I found this especially important in a rural setting like the Catskills. You might say that Peggy and Meade have managed to combine the best of confident, convivial persona with cutting edge technology in maintaining awareness of the attractiveness of unique properties in the Catskills for an increasingly interested clientele in New York City. Additionally, they provided invaluable counsel for us as sellers regarding price, timing and property appearance based on long experience and market awareness. As a result, within a week of listing our property, we had the unexpected good fortune of four offers at or above our asking price….and this in a geographic area where it is common for properties to be on the market for months at a time. I’d also like to add that we incurred some unusual circumstances with respect to our buyer having challenges obtaining financing for the purchase. Although this produced a protracted period before closing, Peggy and Meade remained professional throughout, showing patience, offering encouragement and support the entire time. I don’t know how we would have made it through without them. Profound thanks and appreciation for Peggy and Meade! They have my highest recommendation

- dansprinkles

When our aunt and uncle chose to sell their home in Roxbury Run, they selected Peggy Bellar as their real estate agent. They needed to sell in a timely fashion due to declining health and a necessity to move out-of-state before winter set in. Peggy sold their home for an excellent price and was  able to finalize all arrangements within the time frame needed. She went above and beyond in her customer service, especially in aiding us as we were trying to assist from several states away. Thank you, Peggy, for your personal kindness and help, even after the move was completed. We appreciate you and offer both grateful thanks and our full recommendation

It was a real pleasure having Erik be my buying agent. He is courteous, responsive and was respectful of my wish list.

It is a pleasure for us to give a great review to this company. Meade accomplished what others were unable to do.

I cannot say enough to convey just how thrilled and lucky we were to work with Meade and Peggy selling our house in Margaretville. We began to work with them more than a year out, before selling our house. We moved out of our house in 2017 and had planned to Airbnb it for a year or more. Peggy came  to shoot it then even before we left to capture its look and vibe with our mid-cent modern furniture. This before we'd even signed a contract to work together-- or even knew exactly when we might put it on the market. Peggy and Meade are so forward thinking, together they really guided us through the process. Once we decided it was time to sell this summer, they had the listing up instantly. And when the New York Times was interested in covering the house, they did a ton of additional research on the house and its architectural details so they could answer any question the writer would have. Throughout as offers and potential offers came in, they guided us, calmed both our fears and over-excitement and guided us to a buyer who we are thrilled to have in the home and in our community. Our closing was smooth and easy thanks to them. Every aspect of the sale was expertly handled. No question too small for them, no element to tiny for them to work on with us. I cannot say enough how valuable to us, their skills, creativity and knowledge has been.

- jenkabat5

Meade and Peggy were great to work with. They bring a lot of expertise to the real estate business, from their beautiful listing photos, a lively online presence, and their experience in navigating through the many steps to closing. To our amazement, the first client that Meade brought through was  the one who ended up buying the cabin! How often does that happen? We were a little worried how we were going to work around our busy rental schedule, but Meade was very accommodating so as not to disturb our guests. We would highly recommend the Catskill Dream Team to anyone looking to buy or sell in the Catskills

- shilstone

After several months on the listing, many showings, and no offers, we switched realtors and engaged Peggy Bellar, and that made all the difference. Within a week, Peggy had staged the house, taken new photos that leapt off the website and booked three showings, the third of which yielded a  full-price offer. In the two months between the offer and the closing, Peggy fielded all our questions promptly, kept interactions with the buyer's team professional and uncomplicated, and kept our spirits up. We simply can't recommend this agency enough: this was everything we were missing, and everything we could want from a representative of our house sale. If you want results, hire Peggy. We would again in a heartbeat

Our family has had a cabin in Margaretville, NY for close to 40 years. The cabin was in need of updating and over the years had not been kept in the best shape. My mom was aging and was moving across the country in the next few months; we needed to sell the cabin as quickly as possible. Peggy and  Meade took control of the entire situation through their network of sources, from house keeping, to snow removal to personally cleaning the cabin prior to final closing. They were amazing!

We recently sold our house with the help of the Catskill Dream Team. Mead and Peggy were wonderful to work with. They were very professional, hard working and conscientious. The amount of time they put into selling our house was amazing. Peggy took fabulous photos highlighting the great features  of the house.

I cannot speak highly enough about the Catskill Dream Team. Selling your house is always an emotional experience but the Dream Team brought a business approach when analyzing the value of the house.

Both Peggy and Meade made a very stressful experience bearable. We had our home on the market for one year with no success and minimal input from our agent when we contacted Catskill Dream Team. As soon as we met them we felt confident that they would make every effort to sell our home. That is  exactly what they did. Throughout the selling process they kept in contact with us every step of the way. When decisions had to be made they discussed options with us and offered valuable input. Peggy answered my questions late at night and early in the morning. They are both conscientious and hard working. We would not only recommend them but have already done so.

Peggy, Meade, and Laura were fully invested in helping us sell our home from the very first meeting.

They are truly a team in the way they compliment each others' talents to create a fantastic sales crew.

Peggy and Meade couldn't have chosen a more accurate and descriptive name for their business. From our first introductory phone call with them, to the last day of the sale, their enthusiasm, attention to detail, advice, and support were unmatched. The photo shoot saw Peggy bringing all kinds of  props and fresh-cut flowers from her garden to really make our home sparkle on the websites, and they gave us lots of critical and important feedback on small changes we could make to put our home in a better light. They not only got our home sold on time and on budget (we were leaving the area and needed to be closed by a certain time), they offered truly invaluable support and advice through a lengthy and complicated negotiation with the eventual buyers. They helped arranged post-inspection repairs, recommended our attorney, liaised with contractors....they even put together a welcome basket for the new owners when we didn't have time. I can honestly say we had a 100% positive experience working with Peggy and Meade, and I attribute our selling success almost entirely to their expertise and energy. We've had a lot of broker experiences with other properties, and we were truly floored by our time working with Catskill Dream Team. We miss them already

Peggy and Meade were absolutely wonderful agents. We are extremely blessed to have found them, and as a result to have found our dream home. It sounds ridiculous but is entirely true. We worked primarily with Peggy but were glad when she was unavailable that Meade was able to show us around multiple times as well. They're both lovely, knowledgeable people. Peggy has repeatedly gone above and beyond when helping us make this tremendous decision (and we're first-time buyers). We honestly do not know where we'd be without her. Highest recommendation!

The Catskills Dream Team in our first interview gave us a comprehensive overview of the local real estate market and a realistic evaluation of our property. Several constructive suggestions were incorporated into the property to appeal to our market segment. Activity was brisk through the selling season with several reasonable offers. All prospective buyers received personal attention and we were constantly informed as to comments and criticisms. When we finally agreed to a sales price the Catskill Dream Team maintained coordinated contact with the buyer's agent and our attorney, keeping us up to date at all times. The professionalism and competence of the Catskill Dream Team throughout the process, with attention to the smallest detail, made all the difference in obtaining a favorable outcome .y We would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone contemplating any real estate .activety.

Peggy and Meade are nothing short of amazing! My husband and I have bought and sold numerous properties over the years, and we are quite picky about who we do business with. We spent the last 3 years looking for an old farmhouse in Delaware County- our dream was to have a family and friends retreat in the Catskills. The Catskill Dream Team deserves their name- they stayed with us every step of the way to find our dream farmhouse. Professional to the core... excellent follow-up... did not give up on us... Plus they're fun to be with! We highly recommend!

The Dream Team made our Dreams come True. Over and beyond any other Real Estate Agent. Peggy's professionalism, knowledge of the real estate market, creative, informative, wonderful marketing strategies, excellent in the procedures to close the sale. Extending herself to satisfy the seller and  buyer. Showing our home to buyers that were interested in our style of home. Peggy used ever tool in a real estate tool bag, wonderful description of our home, photos were presented including a drone video of the out side and surrounding landscape. Peggy's presentation was so well done with ads, description along with the photos that we did not want to sell it, but keep it. Peggy was successful in selling our home where other real estate agent's failed. Not pushy, no smoke and mirrors, no pressure. The Dream Team made our Dreams come true. Make your dreams come true. Hire The Dream Team! Respectfully submitted, John & Dolores Chimento Bovina, NY

I am stumped! How do I explain just how AWESOME they are.... We follow the Catskill Dream Team on Facebook and we watch as they broker one home sale after another. Their success rate and skill at matching buyers to sellers is unparalleled. We decided to sell our home back in May and they had a  buyer the next day! Peggy and Meade return phone calls and emails eerily fast and both are delightful people to work with. The combination of the two of them and their extensive knowledge and experience makes them truly a "dream team"

- Kevin Spelman

We are so grateful that we had Peggy Bellar and Meade Camp of the Catskill Dream Team as our realtors on the listing and sale of our home. They were exceptional...always available to us, extremely informed and knowledgeable on real estate market data for our location, kept in touch with us on a  regular basis, pleasant and cordial and made the difficult process of listing, showing and selling our home much easier for us. Would recommend them highly and know we were fortunate to have them represent us.

- jemsands

We had the opportunity to enlist the aid of the Dream Team to sell our home and then buy another. Both transactions were completed with efficiency, integrity and professionalism. We would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone in the process of either buying or selling. They are an excellent  team of knowledgeable realtors

- hariom128

Meade and the Catskills Dream Team made it possible for my family to secure the home of our dreams! They worked diligently with us and the other party to make the process go as swiftly as possible. Their recommendations and ideas were helpful and I strongly believe it got us this home! My husband and I would recommend the Catskills Dream Team to anyone thinking about buying/selling a home. We owe them a debt of gratitude!

Peggy is truly the best! I was a first-time home buyer and she made the entire process as easy as it could be. Not only is she extremely knowledgeable about the area and all the steps involved, she is also warm, friendly and a pleasure to work with. She was always prompt in returning emails and  phone calls and went out of her way to answer many questions I had as a first-timer that were probably outside the realm of her responsibilities. On top of everything, she even gave me the most amazing gift for my house upon closing! The only downside to her efficiency is that you don't get to hangout with Peggy more! I chose Peggy to be my agent based on these reviews and really feel like I lucked out and found the best! I couldn't recommend her more highly.

- bbcperkins

Highly likely to recommend

Peggy was a dream to work with from start to finish! I contacted her about a listing several months ago and she was very upfront about the fact that it might not be right for me - and then showed me another property that was not yet listed, and which was perfect. As a first-time homebuyer, I needed  a lot of advice throughout the process, and she went above and beyond to answer my questions (and the questions I forgot to ask). I highly recommend working with Peggy and Meade if you're looking for a home in the area!

- Erin Fleming

I had the exquisite pleasure of working with Peggy Bellar while purchasing my home in Roxbury NY. Immediately upon meeting Peggy, I knew we had the right person to make our dream of owning a home in the mountains a reality. She went above and beyond any expectations I could have ever had for a  realtor. She answered emails and phone calls at seemingly outrageous hours, and was always quick to respond to any questions. She even has a wonderful service to sign documents electronically. That was fantastic, since we are so far away. Being able to just click and sign the many documents on my smartphone was undoubtedly the easiest part of the whole process. She always had a wonderful smile, and was so upbeat and positive, we couldn't help but be happy throughout the entire process. After the closing, she even gave us a fabulous little house warming gift, containing items from local farmers markets and vendors. She absolutely embodies the spirit and friendliness that the Catskill Mountains represent, and is clearly a professional in her craft

This review is long overdue. I have nothing but great , wonderful, and thankful words towards my agent: Peggy Bellar and Meade Camp. I couldn't have been in better hands. Peggy is a true , honest, and good spirited person whom in the end of this entire stressful process ended up being a part of  our family. Peggy responds back in a fast manner and is always more than willing to go the extra mile. She goes above and beyond for her clients and always has her clients best interest at heart. She really is such a delightful and honest person. The day that I finalized the paperwork on the house that I bought in the Catskills happened to be hailing , raining and snowing!! What an awful combination. My family and I had an NYC rental without snow tires and we got stuck before we even got up the hill to our property. Thank God that Peggy was with us. On top of that we had packed the rental and were stuck downhill. Well Peggy whom is truly heaven sent drove my parents and I up to our new house and then went back in her car to where our car got stuck and made several trips in her car back and forth with my boyfriend carrying all the stuff to the house! In the middle of a storm! Poor Peggy she didn't even have a hat or gloves on! This is a true example of the unselfish , caring and thoughtful person that Peggy Bellar is. Then the next morning Peggy offered to lend us her car so we could get around town and enjoy our first time home owner's weekend. No one does that! Honestly Peggy and Jerry Stein (my lawyer) will always hold such a special place in my heart. They truly went above and beyond for my family and I. Look no further if you ever need a truly loving, honest, caring and good spirited agent. You won't have any regrets. If you need a lawyer I highly recommend Mr. Jerry Stein.

Meade Camp and Peggy Bellar did an outstanding job of listing and selling our house and everything needed in between. It took three years to sell our house - BUT Meade and Peggy only took two months start to finish from our first conversation. We used just about every other agent in the area and,  simply put, they took the listing and did nothing. They did very little market analysis, no marketing other than posting it online (and riddled with mistakes) and then just waited for traffic and interest to happen - it didn't. After almost three years of complete frustration and no activity, someone suggested the Catskill Dream Team. We gave it one last try before delisting for a while and we are SO glad we did. Everything they did was completely professional, exhibited their expertise with the local market and showed a great understanding of how to market in today's world (e.g. using social media). NOBODY else in the area is doing anything close to what they do or with even a fraction of the same energy. Best of all, when problems arose between accepting an offer and getting to close, Meade went beyond the extra mile to help get us to the finish line, babysitting some of the "projects" we undertook to fix some things that came up during inspections since we weren't living in the area. DON'T waste your time going to the other brokers in the area Meade and Peggy cover. If you're lucky, you'll wind up with Meade and Peggy ultimately anyway and wish you hadn't wasted all of that time and expense with others first.

Meade Camp recently helped my family purchase a vacation home in the Catskills and working with him was a pleasure. Our family had been talking about buying upstate for awhile and had spent plenty of time online looking around. When we met Meade and Peggy, we knew we were fortunate to have found  The Catskill Dream Team! After quickly finding just the right home for us, Meade took care everything we needed. The attention he gave us made us feel like we were his only client. His communication with us every step of the way, through every detail could not have been any better. Every question, call or email was answered quickly and he took care of any bumps that popped up so we did not have to worry about a thing. He is very knowledgeable about the area and process which helped in lots of decisions. We would highly recommend Meade Camp to anyone, it was like working with a good friend. Thank you so much for all your help

- zuser20160321175638599

This really is a "dream team"! Meade and Peggy were with us every step of the way - through good deals and bad until we found the right buyers. They took care of all the details and made us very comfortable with the process. Peggy took beautiful pics of the house and created lots of interest for us. It's  always bittersweet to sell your home, but you couldn't be in better hands than with these two.

My husband and I had the pleasure of working with Meade from the Catskill Dream Team for the purchase of our home in Roxbury. Meade was very thorough in his approach to working with us. He listened and understood the types of properties that we were looking for and curated a great selection of  viewings for us each visit. His knowledge of the local history of each town greatly enhanced our experience and connection to the areas we visited. When it came time for an offer, he was diligent in his follow up and communication and guided us through the steps to closing. We are lucky to have found the Dream Team and would highly recommend them to any friends or colleagues

- lizsinar

My home had been on the market for close to five years! After two realtors fell by the wayside, I made contact with Meade and Peggy. Meade immediately put me at ease. Within two days, he was at the house making recommendations for staging. He took over the staging and within a week, my home looked like it had had a makeover. Through the ups and downs of winter, Meade consistently maintained contact with me. And, when he found a buyer, it was full steam ahead! From beginning to end, Meade demonstrated professionalism, sensitivity to my needs, and integrity in all aspects of our work together. TEAMWORK for the DreamTeam means that someone’s always working for you and that safety net made all the difference.

By far the best thing we did during our house hunt was find Meade and Peggy. They deserve every bit of the "Catskills Dream Team" title they've become known as and continually amazed us each step of the way with their unrivaled local knowledge, enthusiasm and patience. As first time home buyers,  Meade and Peggy helped us understand everything from the mundane (What is propane heating? How long does a water heater last?) to each step of the offer and mortgage processes. They answered every single question we had incredibly quickly and literally every day throughout our six month journey made us feel like we were their only clients (which, believe us, is not the case!!). They are so well connected and, once you've found "the one," make all the steps afterwards a breeze. Now that our great house hunt is over, our only regret is that we don't get to look forward to our car rides exploring homes with Meade and Peggy anymore. Their inventory and knowledge of every house, property and town in the area is incredible. We learned so much from them about the history of the area, the ins and outs of becoming a homeowner and how to identify both home treasures and red flags, and we have the home of our dreams now to show for it. Above everything else, we gained two wonderful friends who we can't recommend highly enough. They are the two nicest, smartest, most enthusiastic and passionate folks we've had the good fortune of meeting. Thank you Meade and Peggy from the bottom of our hearts. You made our dream come true! Sincerely, Meg and Chad ChristieLess

Dream Team is so talented and professional. You get the very best quality photos of your home for the web. You get second to none communication with an experienced team. The teams enthusiasm has so much to do with finding the right buyer. At our closing, the support from Peggy and Meade made us  comfortable with the whole process. Thanks guys

- ekirstein7

To sum up my experience I had with Peggy from the Catskill Dream Team in one word, it would be AMAZING. From start to finish she was knowledgable, prompt, and always willing to go above and beyond. We had a record listing to closing time of 31 days!!! Awesome experience, I would highly recommend  Peggy to anyone!

- fstptch21

Peggy and Meade are the most innovative Realtors we have ever used. They are enthusiastic, creative thinkers and are willing to work their fingers to the bone to get a property sold. 

- Dilys via Trulia

Very informative agent that just didn't show us what we requested but made smart suggestions that turned out right. Their response was immediate and on point. Highly recommended.

If you're looking to sell or buy in the Margaretville area, Meade and Peggy are where you can end your search for exceptional realtors. My husband and I just closed on a house with them and we can't say enough good things about the aptly named Dream Team. We had a long and drawn out closing process (due to seller complications) and they were patient, professional and on point every step of the way. We never once felt like we were on their back burner. Not only are they incredibly personable, knowledgable, thoughtful and sweet, they also are extremely organized and were able to quickly understand exactly what we were looking for. During our long waiting game to close, Peggy thoughtfully sent us a video she took during a beautiful snow fall of our future home - she even made us a mixed CD as a closing gift. Who does that? And Meade is the most organized, responsive and patient person I know. During our search he was so kind, full of good info and we always had fun. In short, we feel incredibly lucky to have had them as our realtors and they always made us feel like we were their only clients. I can't recommend the Dream Team enough!

- Cricket Keys via Trulia

Peggy and Meade were patient and supportive through the whole process. We never felt pressured and they continued to search until we found the perfect weekend escape. Peggy trudged through the snow along with us as we looked at house after house. It was a great adventure and thanks to the Catskill Dream Team we found the property of our dreams!

- Kathy Y

I worked with Meade Camp, he knows the Catskills very well. Meade made the process very easy, we viewed the right houses for me to compare and no time was wasted seeing things I was not interested in. It's been a joy!

- user94032766

Peggy and Meade did a wonderful job with the sale. I gave them a number of parcels to sell and they handled it in a professional, efficient manner. I would highly recommend them to anyone.

- msensiper3

Catskill Dream Team provided us excellent support throughout our home buying experience. - Very responsive to all inquiries and follow up - Knowledgeable about the region, buying trends, and what to watch out for - Patient with us as inexperienced buyers, taking the time to walk us through the  process step by step - Most importantly, they were extremely supportive and got to know us so they could serve in our best interests and not just push for a quick sale. I couldn't have asked for a better partner to go through this process with!

- Deborah M

I worked with Meade Camp from the Catskill Dream Team on the purchase of my first home. Meade was extremely responsive, straight-forward and knowledgable on the both the market and area properties. He was quickly able focus our search on houses that fit both expectation and price range. I could not have gotten through the process with as much ease without Meade's help. I would recommend him to anyone searching in the Catskills.

- Jackson Deane

I recently had the pleasure of working with the "Catskill Mountain Dream Team", part of the Keller Williams Real Estate company located in Margaretville NY. Being no strangers to buying and selling Real Estate, I was so incredibly impressed with their professional knowledge, sales strategies, seasonal photo updates, and just pure desire to create the perfect union for both seller and buyers , Thank you ,Peggy Bellar and Meade Camp! You truly are the "Dream Team" of the Catskill Mountains.

- Bailarina Sue

We were extremely happy with the services provided by Peggy Bellar and Meade Camp. They were both very knowledgeable of the area, understood exactly what we were looking for and were able to answer all of my questions that arose. They stayed on top of everything from the showing of properties, to signing of a contract and through the closing process. I would highly recommend speaking with Peggy or Meade if you are looking for a home in the Catskill region.

- DMacklin

Simply put, Peggy and Meade are the best. My wife and I were looking for a getaway in the Catskills and the Catskill Dream Team made that a reality. The level of service and dedication to meeting our needs was second to none. Peggy and Mead did it all - learning what we wanted, gathering property listings, previewing properties for us, negotiating on our behalf and then helping to finalize the deal. Much of this done remotely since we were not already located in the area. I have never been more impressed than with Peggy and Meade. Thanks!!!!

- Pal2112 via Trulia

This is not the first house I have purchased and home and I can honestly say that Peggy and Meade provide the best service from any of the real estate agents I have dealt with. They always looked out for my best interest and made the purchasing process painless. The took the time to understand what was important to us and showed us homes that really met our needs. They even went over and beyond their responsibilities (i.e. meeting with contractors at the home for future work to be done when we could not get up to the house). The services provided did not end with the closing, they were available and willing to help with anything we needed. They were amazing to deal with and will recommend them to any family and friends looks for homes in the area. They are truly a "Dream Team"!!!

- Jeanine.rasulo via Trulia

Peggy and Meade were referred to us by good friends when we started our home search. We were in the very beginning "what if" stages of our search and Peggy and Meade really helped us hone in on what was important to us and what we wanted to look for. Between the two of them you were really get your bases covered -- they are good listeners and are sensitive to your needs and they are also super knowledgable about the home buying process and good at explaining what you need to know. On top of that, they are incredibly kind, patient and fun to spend a day driving around the Catskills with! While we ultimately ended up buying in a different area that is closer to the city, Peggy and Meade graciously recommended us to a great agent to work with and by that time we already knew what we were looking for. I would recommend the Catskill dream team in a heartbeat!

- erika via Trulia

I worked with Peggy to purchase a home in Andes. I started off not knowing exactly what I was looking for, but Peggy was able almost immediately to hone in on the important items I was looking for in a place. Within a short time, I found a great place that hits all the marks! Once I was in the process of closing on that house, Peggy and Meade continued to go above and beyond to make the experience easy for me. Lots of great recommendations both professionally and just about the area in general. I could go on and on, but they really are a dream team. :)

- Katrina via Trulia

Peggy And Meade were fabulous. They were sensitive to my needs and kept me informed every step of the way. I was impressed with their Knowledge and attentiveness. They are consummate professionals.

- arobinson112@nyc.rr.com via Trulia

Meade & Peggy were a true pleasure to work with throughout the entire buying process. They were knowledgeable, friendly, detail oriented and extremely transparent about all elements of the buying experience. We trusted their advice from beginning to end and recommend them with the utmost confidence to buyers and sellers looking for top of the line realtors. 

- cbs720 via Trulia

Peggy & Meade were an amazing team. They were thorough, thoughtful, attentive, and honest. They went out of their way to acquaint us with the neighborhood and guided us through the home-buying process. We could not recommend them more highly. You're in the best hands with them. 

- Carly via Trulia

There are not enough superlatives to describe Peggy Bellar of Keller-Willams as a real estate agent and as a person. She is professional, cares deeply about what she is doing, listens well to the sellers and their needs and we are sure does the same for buyers. She is responsive, attentive, kind, energetic, happy, and calm. We highly recommend her to anyone looking to purchase or sell a home or land.

Peggy and Meade are called the dream team for a reason; they make dreams come true! My dream was to find a Catskills weekend home I would eventually transition into a retirement home. This dream is now a reality thanks to the diligence, attention to details, and enthusiasm Peggy and Mead infused into my buying experience. Their passion for the Catskill Mountains coupled with their unparalleled knowledge of the area sets them apart from other brokers in Delaware County. If you are looking for property in the Western Catskills the Dream Makers at Keller Williams are the only brokers you need to visit.
