Licensed Real Estate Salesperson
Peggy Jetter’s love affair with Shelter Island began shortly after she moved from the Midwest more than three decades ago to work as a food journalist in New York. A long-time Ram Island resident took her under his wing and welcomed her to his retreat overlooking Gardiner’s Bay where he shared his secrets for finding the best oysters, the ripest peaches and the sweetest bay scallops. And how to cook them! The Foods of Long Island was the result of those shopping excursions and cooking extravaganzas, the first of many cookbooks she wrote during her career in newspaper and magazine publishing.
Ten years later, Peggy’s Shelter Island real estate adventure began when she and her husband, Jerry, bought a patch of undeveloped land. Over the span of four years, they returned to visit their dream property while getting to know the people, the shops and the rhythm of the Island. Along the way, they patiently cleared land and carefully planned their house to include a generous kitchen and a screened porch perfect for long, lingering dinners.
Moving from publishing, she spent nine years in marketing, and now makes her home on this Island. Peggy joins M. Wein Realty with a simple approach: Listen to what the customer wants and be responsive to questions and concerns. By seeing the potential of a property, Peggy will share a vision that meets your needs.
