Outstanding Service….Exceptional Results…. Every Time
Here’s what our clients are saying about us….
My husband and came to DelRay just to “look”at a possible winter escape from the cold of Chicago. Peggy and Rick showed us many lovely homes, were extremely knowledgeable about the properties, and made no attempt to pressure us into making a decision. When we found a home that we could not resist, they made the purchase seamless, communicated and advised on issues and questions quickly, and were available even after we closed and moved into our new home.

I recently closed on a condominium in Aventura, FL which had been my father’s home for many years. I have known Peggy Doepper for about 10 years and turned to her for guidance in how to start the process. Because this was out of Palm Beach County, she referred me to another realtor while assuring me that she would be a continuous part of the process. Peggy reviewed every aspect of the transaction, from pricing to listing, to the ultimate contract and closing. This was a deal which was wrought with obstacles from start to finish. Peggy stayed on top of the details, the negotiations and most of all the listing agent to make sure that everything got resolved quickly. We closed on February 18th, and I can honestly say this wouldn’t have happened without her extensive real estate expertise, diligence and sensitivity. I would highly recommend Peggy to anyone as an outstanding real estate professional.
Our experience with the Doepper’s was simply outstanding in both buying and selling our homes. Their expertise in the Delray Beach Real Estate Market is phenomenal! They assisted us in every way possible making both transactions totally stress free. Hands down they are in our opinion the best real estate agents in town.

As we are a few days away from closing on our mothers house I was reflecting on our experience or, if you prefer, journey through this process.
From our first meeting I was comfortable with you both and left that meeting knowing that we made the correct decision in listing the house with you.
The comfort that you were there for every showing and did not let strangers into her home gave my sister and I a feeling of security that the items that were in there and represented an emotional tie for us were being looked after.
The photo tour of the house that you provided was so impressive I wanted to buy the house.
The real test came when we had an offer and we were upset at the price offered. You were cool and explained the process to us so when we went back it was with proper knowledge and an understanding of the process. This led to a very acceptable final price.
After the paperwork you both guided us through the preparation for closing and explained everything to us so that it all went smoothly.
My sister and I want to thank you both for not just successfully selling our mothers home but more importantly for doing this difficult task for us so smoothly that it lessened our sadness.
We can’t thank you enough. My best,
Gary & Sherrie
“I am giving my highest possible recommendation for Peggy and Rick of Illustrated Properties. Though I heard many wonderful things about them, I did not expect them to be as good as they have been. They have set the bar very high. Besides being experts in the real estate market, they have been exceptionally pleasant to deal with. As way of background, my parents lived in Delray Beach. My mother passed away years ago. When my father subsequently passed away, we put the house on the market as both my brother and I have careers and family up north. While one might think the logistics of doing this would complicate things, it did not at all. Peggy and Rick were always available to advise and to assist. Being married, Peg and Rick sort of came as a two for the price of one deal. Each of them is highly skilled and would give us frequent and very accurate updates. We are closing this week and will miss talking to them. I recommend them very highly.”
Lewis & Mark
“We recently purchased a home in Delray and chose Peggy and Rick Doepper as our realtors. We have dealt with many real estate transactions in the past and have developed a must have list of qualities that we look for in a realtor: Professionalism, A sense of urgency, Constant Communication, Up to date price comparisons, Coordination between realtors, buyer, sellers and Inspection personnel, Follow through till closing. Peggy and Rick delivered on all that and much more, especially considering we were out of state during most of the process. Thank you Peggy and Rick for guiding us on this journey as our realtors and friends. We couldn’t be happier. Love you guys.”
Steve and Debbie.
“Peggy and Rick Doepper are next level realtors. Their attention to detail, market knowledge, and client service far surpass that of the norm. Hiring them to assist in selling our home was the best decision we made.”
“Buying and selling homes with Peggy & Rick Doepper has been a great experience. We have had three sales/purchases coordinated by Peggy & Rick and they were always one step ahead of everything. Their years of expertise have earned them the reputation as being among the best in the Delray Beach area. We would definitely recommend them to handle any sale or purchase you may be considering.”
Peter & Sue
“The Peggy and rick team are winners. They are smart easy to work with and they went above and beyond their call of duty. Being an out of state seller they were so accommodating and incredibly helpful w/everything that needed to be done. AND THERE WAS A LOT.”
“Dear Peggy and Rick, Thank you very much for doing so much to make my Delray Beach condo sale go so smoothly. The staging for the photographer that you did and marketing is what made this sale at full asking price happen the first day. Thank you.”
“Wayne Nelson and I want to say a huge thank you to Peggy & Rick for handling the listing of our home, which was listed and under contract within 4 days!
Wayne and I chose the Doepper’s to represent the sale of our home because of their years of real estate expertise, their dedicated property marketing and negotiating skill. But it was as much because they really understood us and what our home here meant to us. Their guidance in the pre-listing phase of our home was also extremely helpful to us in preparing our home for the market.
The sale of your home can be an emotional time. Peggy and Rick were always available to guide us in a manner that allowed us to make the best educated decisions.”
Wayne & Rhonda
“Aloha Rick and Peggy,
I would like to thank you both for an exceptional job, well done. You are by far the best team that I have had the pleasure to work with on the selling of any of my homes.
You both really did exceed my expectations, to say the least. Having to work with you from Hawaii in our different time zones, you really showed not only your true professionalism, but also your pride of ownership. You treated my home in Florida and the entire process as if it were your own home. Firstly you really did have your finger on the pulse in having the knowledge of the current market value for my price range. Then from the moment you started staging my home, taking amazing photos, and describing my sanctuary on the listing……. Well Perfection!!! Let’s not forget all of Rick’s generous handy work, prepping it as well. And well 2 offers within 2 days. Now that was impressive.
From the moment that we accepted the offer, you ensured me that I had nothing to worry about with me being so far away, and well your Integrity is not only appreciated but also adored. You kept your word until the end. I have never seen agents that handle the hiring and appointment settings of the Inspection checklist, let alone showing up to every single one to allow them access to the house. I am still stunned that you both took that extra work upon yourself to handle for me. I really could have never achieved everything in a timely manner on my own without you both. Thank you kindly for being so generous with your private time to really manage the entire sale. I am forever grateful to you both and will never forget what an efficient, seamless, and incredibly flawless transaction that was. Be sure to look me up should you ever come to Maui.”
“I found Rick & Peggy to be honest to their word, trustworthy, & fair. Rick & Peggy always kept me informed as to the status of our property. I knew of all the showings and results of showings immediately. They both conducted themselves professionally.”
“Margaret Doepper professionally assisted us in purchasing our home from initial contact through closing. She listened attentively to our desires and spelled out precisely what we could and could not do. She utilized her network to advise us of all necessary requirements that needed to be met in procuring a VA loan and insure that we were qualified to both view and purchase a property that was within our means. She promptly answered all of our questions whether they were at 9:00 AM or 9:00 PM. She recommended and accompanied us in viewing prospective properties, assisted us in placing and negotiating a purchase offer, and remained with us through the closing. After we moved in, she provided us with an appropriate “house-warming” gift. Truly illustrative of what a realtor is and should be!! Thank you.”
John & Sharon Lynch
“I used Peggy Moran Doepper to buy my condo in Delray Beach and she is outstanding.
Before choosing a real estate agent,I asked my neighbors and friends if they have anyone outstanding to recommend me.My good friends and neighbors recommended me Peggy because they had a great experience and they believed; she is very smart, very enthusiast, hard worker, familiar with the area that I was interested and specially honest.
I completely agree with them;Peggy is the best real state agent in the Boca Raton and Delray Beach who I worked with in 5 years of my searching. I had a very smooth, happy experience with her.
She understood my priorities and she never wasted my time by showing me the other units that I was not interested.I am very picky and she was on the point to send me a listing that I was interested and the one that had my priorities with it’s appraisal. She was very honest and straightforward to me which I liked it and I appreciated.
I will highly recommend Peggy to my friends and neighbors, we built a friendship and this is very important to me.”

“My husband and I recently worked with the Doepper Team and purchased our “final forever home”. Peggy was invaluable keeping us informed with every aspect of our purchase – and then some! Professional, diligent and prompt every step of the way. If we asked a question, we received and answer with the hour. Peggy knows the area, and has a great working relationship with local realtors. We gained a wealth of knowledge thanks to her suggestions and referrals. We may not ever buy again, however, we gained forever friends that we highly recommend to everyone for any real estate needs.”
Megan & Jim
“Peggy and Rick were great to work with throughout the entire process. They clearly explained all aspects of the exercise, making it very easy for us. They also stood in for us during our absence to help address matters requiring attention. We highly recommend them to anyone!”
Jeff & Melanie
“It was not a hard decision in selecting the team of Peggy and Rick Doepper to list our house with their knowledge of the market and our neighborhood. Their professionalism and customer service far exceeded our expectations. We have sold a number of houses over the years and we can honestly say Peggy and Rick are at the top of our list of seller’s agents. Peggy provided professional advice every step of the way and Rick personally hosted all showings with superb feedback. We could not have asked for a better duo. This team made the process seem like a breeze from the listing prep work to the closing. We never doubted they had our back. Thank you both for a great experience!”
Martha & Greg
“The Doeppers are amazing realtors. They made the stressful process of selling a home, simple. The work begins before you put your home on the market and they were on top of things from day one. In addition, they both go above and beyond what you would expect your realtor to do, including an extensive list of referrals. I would buy or sell a home with them in the future.”
“We are huge fans of Peggy and Rick Doepper and would unequivocally recommend them. We started working with Peggy and Rick in a rather unorthodox manner. We reside in New Jersey and had been working with a different realtor for our house search in Delray Beach. We met Peggy and Rick since they were selling agents for a house that we liked but decided not to bid at that time (interestingly that is the same house that we are about to close on shortly). During our brief conversations with them, we found them to be very knowledgeable about the area which we appreciated. Shortly thereafter and due to a number of factors, we decided to make a change with our realtor team and our unanimous decision was to work with Peggy and Rick. It was fortuitous that we started working with them and found out that the house was back on the market and put in a bid. We found their advice on the bidding process helpful and the negotiation process was straightforward. However, it was only after the bid went through that we realized what a good decision we had made. Without getting into the details, we’ll just say that Peggy and Rick’s support throughout the process – home inspection, managing repairs, providing advice on contractors and vendors etc. was invaluable. In particular, we would highlight that we were having a difficult time with our mortgage lender on the appraisal given the unique factors relating to the house. Peggy’s knowledge and input to the appraiser (who didn’t know the area) was very helpful in getting the process back on track and us being able to close on schedule. So, if you’re looking to work with a great realtor team in the Delray Beach area look no further than the Doeppers.”

“Hello Peggy, I wanted to thank you and Rick for helping me sell my 2 properties in Delray.
I selected you because your market analysis was the most thorough and accurate in my opinion. I was very happy with the level of communication and responsiveness I received throughout the process. I was impressed with your ability to sell 2 properties at the same time and getting full market value for each. Thank you again.”
“Dear Sir, It is with great pleasure that I recommend both Peggy and Rick Doepper. They made selling my parents condo very easy. Whatever time was required, they they took it. They went over and above the call of duty. Being a retired Ford dealer and airline pilot, I now about good customer service. Both Peggy and Rick have it. If we were going to sell or buy another property, in South Florida, I would not hesitate to call The Doeppers.”
“Hi Peggy, I found your efforts on my behalf to be outstanding.. You are professional, efficient and attentive to all my requests
regarding the purchase of my home. I would highly recommend you to anyone who is interested in purchasing a home
in the Delray-Boca Raton-area of Florida. With Best Wishes.”
“Peggy was excellent as a realtor under unique circumstances relating to the sale of my house. She showed great attention to detail and customer service, was efficient, smart, patient, polite, and very very knowledgable in the field. No regrets whatsoever and I recommend her with out any reservation. A very nice lady as well. I can vouch for her off-line (upon individual request) if needed. Highly recommend.”
“We would like to say how happy we were recently with the services of Peggy Doepper at Illustrated Properties who represented us in the sale of our townhome. We were returning to Peggy as we bought the same home with her help a few years before and were extremely happy with her services. In representing us in the sale of our home we found Peggy to be extremely helpful and professional. Explaining patiently every step of the way and reminding us in a polite way of what we needed to do.
We would definitely not hesitate in asking Peggy again to represent us in future negotiations.”
Jacquie and Roger Saint.
“Peggy is simply an amazing broker! With Peggy’s help I purchased my first home in Pineapple Grove, Delray in 2014 and then I fell in love with the nearby cottages in the historic district of Bankers Row. Peggy kept me well informed on any property coming up for sale and I am so happy about my recent 2nd closing on a beautiful commercially zoned cottage. The commercial zoning was something completely new for me. Peggy guided me very professionally through many unexpected hurdles! Peggy organized the “closing away” so well that I didn’t even had to change any of my business commitments. Peggy’s knowledge, experience and guidance has successfully assisted me through two very good purchases.”
