Peggy McGough is our newest addition to the RE/MAX Realty Group Rental Department. She moved to Long Neck, DE, at the end of 2018 from Blue Bell, PA, where she enjoyed many adventures, some planned, some not so much! After taking the summer off to enjoy all that the Delaware beaches have to offer, she knew it was time to look for a new adventure.
Most of Peggy’s 35 years of experience have been in the secretarial field, beginning at Johnson & Johnson in New Brunswick, NJ. Add to that Bristol Myers Squibb; Nidus, a medical education firm; and NJBIA, a small-business lobbying association in Trenton, NJ, from which she retired. After too many years of retirement, she joined RSVP, a volunteer organization, where it was her honor to work with so many dedicated employees and volunteers striving to improve the lives of those in need. Last but not least, prior to leaving PA, Peggy worked at a summer camp, an experience she enjoyed immensely. While it was hot and noisy, seeing so many happy kids was worth it.
Peggy is looking forward to her adventures at RE/MAX Realty Group Rental Department. She likes being a part of the planning for someone’s hard earned vacation at the Delaware beaches. She also likes spending time with family, especially when the grandkids come to drive the golf cart!
