Littleton, NH – Maggie Jones of Lancaster, a seasoned real estate agent for over 6 years, has changed brokerages and joined the firm of Badger Peabody & Smith Realty and will be based at the firm's Littleton office.
For Jones, her career in real estate started by chance. Jones said, "I moved to New Hampshire in 2015, began my own photography business, and set out to buy my first house. In the eight months of actively searching for the perfect home, I found I had cultivated a skill for real estate and really enjoyed it."
While based out of the Littleton office, Jones expects to continue to assist sellers and buyers in the greater Lancaster area and beyond. As with most of the agents in the Littleton office, Jones is also licensed in Vermont as well to assist folks on either side of the Connecticut River.
Badger Peabody & Smith Realty's Broker/Owner Andy Smith said, "Many of our agents have worked with Maggie in the past on a number of closings and the comments and feedback about Maggie and her level of professionalism really stood out. We are pleased to welcome Maggie to our team." He added, "Maggie will be working alongside Nikki Barrett in our Littleton office to learn more about our vision, company culture and our philosophy of putting the needs of our customers and clients first. Our philosophy is paramount in all of our transactions and it is something Maggie is completely familiar with as she's been doing that all along during her career."
When not working, Jones enjoys cycling, hiking, gardening and spending time outside with her partner and their dogs. She is also involved in the community serving on an advisory committee for the Northern Forest Center, the Lancaster Master Plan Committee, and is Vice Chair of the Lancaster Planning Board.

Peabody & Smith Realty, as members of Luxury Portfolio, are proud to help share this study with you now - click here for your copy to read online or download and print.
Here are some key findings as reported by the study and Luxury Portfolio International:
The more than five-million-home gap between those interested in purchasing and those interested in selling creates a seller's market within the overall high-end residential real estate market. The implication of this lopsided market is near-term price increases and greater demand for new development.
Other highlights from State of Luxury Real Estate include:
The luxury customer is more interested in high-quality offerings and customer service than low price. The ultra-luxury segment values brands that feature corporate citizenship, reputation and loyalty.
