Hear directly from our agents about the benefits of choosing Peak Swirles & Cavallito Properties!


PSCP is a great place to work! We are an independent company so you have the freedom and flexibility from the red tape of larger companies. We have experienced agents who are willing to share their wealth of knowledge. Sales meetings are full of discussions on current issues sprinkled with lots of laughs. (You can also get great tips on where to find cute shoes!)


The main reason I chose Peak, Swirles & Cavallito Properties is that it’s a locally owned, private firm with a great reputation. We’ve been here since 1993. I like our website; it’s simple and easy for a buyer to use. The owners and broker-in-charge are always accessible when you need them. Our office manager, Susan Craft, is the GREATEST! And equally as important: you won’t find a better group of experienced and knowledgeable agents anywhere.


My colleagues are smart, helpful and fun. It’s stimulating to bounce ideas around together. Often we help each other in very specific ways. Last year, for instance, my biggest sale was of an unadvertised house a colleague told us about, and another colleague resolved an appraisal issue with info about a FSBO sale in the neighborhood. Our BIC keeps us up to the minute on new developments in local and national real estate. Even after 30-plus years in the business, I learn a lot by coming to meetings!

And on top of all this, we have the best office administrator in the city. She keeps the wheels humming, and takes care of the part of this job that I like least: keeping the paperwork straight!

PSCP is an excellent real estate company. Over the years, our agents have built a reputation for energy, efficiency and scrupulous honesty. I’m proud to be associated with this group.”


When I was looking to join a real estate firm in the Durham/Chapel Hill area, I considered many different companies with many different models. They were all highly professional and had great reputations, and I think and hope that I would have been successful in any one of them. However when I walked into Peak, Swirles & Cavallito Properties’ office just off 15-501, I just felt as though it was where I was meant to be. It is a small, friendly, local firm with a well-deserved reputation for high ethical standards, wonderful properties in all price ranges and incredible name recognition among those who have been in the area for a while.

The three multi-talented women owners are great role models and examples of how to work hard and build referral businesses and they are always willing to help new and established agents with advice, support and humor! Susan Craft, the best business manager in the real estate world, is the source of all information and manages to multi-task and remain cheerful at all times. Peak, Swirles & Cavallito agents are professional, knowledgeable and supportive and there is no element of competitiveness that I have experienced. These are all really important considerations for me.

The addition of Bob Jamieson as the Broker in Charge has brought other really important elements to the firm; training and 24 hour a day support from a full-time manager. He is the consummate professional and takes time to help out all the agents with inevitable problems. He has rapidly provided the firm with office training on a wide variety of topics which keeps everyone up to date and ready for any changes in the real estate environment.
Peak, Swirles & Cavallito Properties is a great place from which to run your business. I hope you’ll join us!

When you work with an independently owned company, you have direct input in shaping the company’s procedures, policies, resources and goals. PSCP is established enough to offer all the resources of large franchises but you are also able to talk directly with the owners at any time. PSCP is large enough but not too large. You have the privilege of working with carefully selected agents that maintain our company’s respect in the community.
