DeakyneLongevity in an ever-changing industry like real estate can be hard to find. Peggy Deakyne began her career in the real estate profession in 1978 after working in banking.

“I worked in the banking industry for 14 years,” Peggy says. “I only had one child, and I knew if I was going to be able to go to all of his events, I needed a job that wasn’t a nine-to-five. I also wanted a job where if I worked hard, I would be rewarded. In the beginning I worked 70 hours a week, but it was 70 hours of my choosing.”

Fast forward to 2009. Peggy’s daughter-in-law Jennifer Deakyne decided to pursue a career in the same industry.

“I had been a stay-at-home mom for 11 years and when my youngest was in second grade I decided to jump back into the workplace, Jennifer says. “I had always found real estate interesting and had been around it a lot, married to Peggy’s son Gary. I thought it would be a perfect fit. I could be my own boss, make my own hours and still be there for my kids.”

The two decided to join forces to create The Deakyne Team at F.C. Tucker.

“It seemed like a no-brainer for us to join together as a team,” Jennifer says.

They both feel that working together is easy for them, because they both stay in their lane.

“In the beginning, I was around to help her with any questions she had, but she’s a smart cookie, so she didn’t have many,” Peggy says of Jennifer. “Now we each do our own thing, but are there to help the other one out if need be. I knew she would be great at this, but I also didn’t want to push my career on her.”

The Noblesville natives credit their knowledge of the local community for their success.

Peggy notes that personal relationships and referrals are her most significant source of business.

“We give a lot of personal attention to our clients,” Peggy says. “If they’re happy, they tell their friends. That’s what helped me be successful in this industry.”

Jennifer also knows word of mouth creates big business in a booming industry.

“I rarely work with clients that I don’t know or that I don’t have a personal connection with,” Jennifer says. “I rely on my relationships to build my business. To me that’s so important in any business, but especially in real estate. It is a people business, and that’s what I love about my job.”

The Deakyne Team is located at 100 Lakeview Dr. in Noblesville. For more information, call 317-439-3258 or visit them online at
