Born in San Antonio, Texas, Peggy comes to CDR from the unique perspective of having lived in San Miguel since 1960 and having witnessed fundamental changes in her adopted town. At 18, she married Manuel Zavala, with whom she had five children—and when Zavala was elected Mayor of San Miguel, Peggy became the first US-born First Lady. She taught cooking at the Instituto Allende, ran a catering business, and for fifteen years taught aerobics classes.
Then, 37 years ago, she was invited to sell real estate and found that she not only loved matching people up with the homes of their dreams, but she was good at it. She says she can tell many, many stories about the San Miguel of old. For Peggy, the town has changed—countless times over—but retains the original spark it had when she came here fifty-five years ago. It’s very different, but she loves the town even more now.
Peggy has been a dancer all her life, with a particular fondness for the Tango.
“I have been working with Jessica and Peggy for almost two years and they consistently go above and beyond my expectations for real estate agents. They are a fantastic duo; both have lived in San Miguel Allende for most of their lives and they know the city intimately. They listened carefully to my needs and desires and responded accordingly steering me to properties that met or exceeded my expectations. Peggy and Jessica are well-known and respected members of the community and have abundant connections to ease the buying and selling of homes. My confidence in them has never wavered and I would trust them with any real estate transaction in the San Miguel de Allende area.”
“From initial pitch to closing, the CDR/Christie’s team lead by Jessica Patterson and Peggy Taylor was very professional and handled the sale of our family property with great care. The sale was more than a transaction, because we are also friends. Our families have known each other since before San Miguel became a real estate Mecca. Timing was critical, and the CDR team made the process easy and seamless. Peggy and Jessica were always available and helpful to all of us, spread-out in several cities in Mexico and in the US, and concerned about long-distance coordination. Planning, coordination and scheduling were handled in an efficient and timely manner, and the closing was very smooth. Pitch to Closing: an amazing 4 months. We are very happy to have worked with such a dedicated group of professionals who excel in a complex and competitive field. We highly recommend CDR/Christie’s. “
