Let Peggy Stewart’s unique combination of real estate expertise and professional healthcare experience help you to sell or purchase exactly the right accessible home for you and your family.
When a modified home comes on the market, the chances are high that it will be sold and the modifications ripped out at considerable inconvenience, effort and cost. And sadly, we know that within months after a house has been de-modified, there is someone who needs it and has to start this expensive cycle all over again with modifications to another house. That cost not only hurts those buying and selling, but actually ripples throughout our community as it drives insurance rates up and uses up available government funding.
When modified housing can be recycled, it benefits everyone — individuals who can use it to enhance their daily lives, families facing the stress of a move to accommodate a loved one, insurance companies footing the bill and the taxpayers whose funding tries to help all who are in need.

“Because I believe so strongly in helping people with disabilities to live as comfortable and rewarding a lifestyle as they would choose, I want to put my healthcare background and my professional real estate expertise to work for them. Over the years I have met and got to know, so many wonderful people in the medical field, in healthcare and caregiving organizations, in non-profit and government organizations and now in the housing market.
My goal is to help share as much information between us as we can, to make full Recycling of Modified Housing a reality in our community. If you would like to play a part in sharing information to make this recycling happen, please call me or click here to e-mail me with the details of your interest and how you would like to help. All information is kept confidential and released only with your express permission.
Peggy has a major interest in wheelchair accessible and modified houses for people with special needs. If you are looking to buy or sell a house equipped for people with special needs, please call Peggy to get further information. Some houses may have relatively small adaptations like grab bars in the bathrooms. Other houses may have major modifications such as ramps and lifts to meet the needs of a person who has full or partial quadriplegia. Some houses are better suited for people with major allergies, and other houses may be modified for someone who is hearing impaired.
Disability & estate planning specialist Kenneth Pope partners with Kim Mcleod, Parent Advocate, Educator and Co-founder of “One More Thing” a parent group for special needs families, for 2 webinars to discuss various family needs as well as provincial and federal benefits.
