Pete is a excellent agent, he represented us well and always had our families best interest at heart. In addition to his high level of professionalism he also manages to make the home buying experience fun! We have worked with Pete in the past and will continue to in the future.
Pete was great. With foreclosures, short sales, bank owned, multiple offers, flippers and investors making the market unusually complex, he persisted and found us a home that met our wants and needs. He showed us 10 to 12 houses a week for a couple months and always treated us like we were #1.
We contacted Pete seeking a larger home for our family fifteen years ago. My husband’s criteria was a 3 car garage. I was adamant about staying in the southeast valley and of course, price was a factor. Pete listened to our needs and showed us the perfect home the first day house hunting. Our current home was difficult to sell but having the expertise, Pete guided us through that process and we successfully navigated through selling and buying. When we relocated out of state, again, Pet…
Pete and his team are very knowledgeable about all the things we needed to know about buying a house. It is our first home and we couldn’t of had a better team in our side. They explained everything to us step by step. And if I had any problems, questions or anything all it took was a phone call to them to get the problem solved. I will be recommending them to friends and family. Elizabeth C. was the realtor that helped us out. She knew what my wife wanted and started showing us homes with wh…
We worked with Liz Challoner with the Dijkstra Group. We had gone though 2 other realtor before we found her. We took a home buying class and the instructor referred us after we told him about our horrible experience with the last 2 realtor we had. Liz was such a blessing! She helped us understand the market, our budget, our wants vs. needs, and told us to take our time. If she was unsure about a question we had about a house or process, she was all over it and didn’t stop until she had …
Pete and his team are very professional. They led me through a successful short sale with the least amount of pain possible. My house sold for cash the first week it was listed. I was kept informed of progress on a regular basis. I can’t think of anything more he could have possibly done.
Pete has negotiated the purchase of 3 homes and the sale of 2 homes for me, and I would not have any other real estate perform any services for me. He is the very best that could be found anywhere in the valley. He has a most engaging personality and has been a good friend to me for the past 14 years.
To Pete & Liz,Peter I would just like to thank you for all your guidance in the sale of our home. It has been a long journey and I am so glad it has come to an end. You and Liz make a great team. I would be glad to recommend you to friends and family. Peter and I were truly blessed to have you both on our team. May God bless you both with prosperity and good health.Sincerely, The Tenaglia Family
Pete was very helpful in selling our home even in a down market. Pete made sure every upgrade was mentioned on the listing. He was very thorough with gathering information on other homes listed in the general area to aide us in determining our selling price. Pete made sure he was available to show our home when needed and always made sure it was convenient for us if we were in town. If we were out of town and needed to show our home, he made sure our home was locked…
Randy Jensen was my realtor and he was excellent. He was very knowledgeable on the market and was responsive to every request. Randy was backed up by a support staff that attended to every aspect of the process from financing to inspections. I was impressed with their service and would definitely recommend them to anyone that is interested in purchasing in this area.
