You may recognize Peggy Wester’s name and face from her 15 years as a realtor serving Belgium and the Ozaukee County area, but how much do you really know about this Belgium Area Chamber of Commerce member?
Many of you know that Peggy Wester, of Realty Executives, Integrity, is very dedicated to our chamber- not only has she been a member for nearly seven years but she has also served on the board for four years as secretary, and is the current membership chair. Always willing to volunteer, she can be found helping out behind the scenes at everything from parades to the Easter Egg hunt to the Chamber’s Brew & Chew event.
This is no small feat when you consider her busy professional life. Peggy is accredited as a CRS (Certified Residential Specialist), which makes her one of the top 3% of realtors in the nation. She earned this honor in 2006, by accomplishing a specific production level as well as completing many additional hours of education, above and beyond continuing education. She now serves on the CRS leadership team.
Besides all that, her clients like her because she is loyal, a good listener, and a responsive communicator. Peggy likes helping people through the home-buying and -selling processes, but also enjoys forging relationships with her clients, and says she’s made some pretty great friends in her clients.
So why would a Grafton resident focus so much of her time on Belgium? In short¬– it’s her passion. She grew up here. “There’s so much potential here,” she explains. “We’re just figuring out how to work together to grow it.”
She enjoys the opportunities the Chamber offers her to get reacquainted with people in the community, and we are lucky to have her dedication to our organization.
“One wish I have for our Chamber is to have more membership involvement--we need more help with the events we offer throughout the year,” says Peggy. “Volunteering not only gives you the opportunity to meet other local business owners, but also members of the community. Plus, you always get way more out of volunteering than you give.”
When not working or volunteering, Peggy enjoys biking, traveling, going for walks, and spending time with family.
Thanks for being a part of the Belgium Area Chamber of Commerce, Peggy!
