Peg Murphy Bright

Peg, a native New Yorker, moved to Westerly in 2005 to help market and sell high-end custom homes in
Westerly. A graduate of Fordham University, Peg has over 45 years’ experience in event planning, marketing,
sales and development in the publishing, motion picture and real estate industries.

Peg lives with her husband, Richard, in Westerly and has been involved in local charities including the Warm
Shelter and The Westerly Library where she currently serves as President of the Friends of the Library and an ex-
officio member of the Board of Trustees of the library and Wilcox Park.

Simon Brown

Simon was born in 1948 of British parents in Nairobi, Kenya, East Africa. His family moved back to England when
Simon was 6 years old, after which he was educated in the English School System. At the age of twenty he left
England and started working world-wide in the oil business, eventually moved to America in the early eighties.
He was married in 1981—and had three sons.

He’s been involved in Real Estate for about 20 years doing land syndication, commercial and residential sales
and property management.

He is NOT a salesman. Simon is an advocate and guide for his clients, helping them get from start to finish in
every transaction as smoothly as possible. Yes, there may well be puzzles and challenges to overcome, but it
takes a team to close a Real Estate transaction.

Let him help you assemble that team and guide you through the process.
