"Peter was amazing. We could not have asked for a better realtor. His knowledge about homes and sales in our area was stellar, and any suggestions he made about list price/staging/timing of sale ended up being spot on. He also gets what he says done in whatever timeline he promised, and you are never left waiting for an answer or a callback when you have a question. He is thorough, and while I'm sure he had many other clients on his plate, his attentiveness to our home sale, as well as the purchase of our new home, was impressive. He is also easy to work with. In high stress situations, his demeanor is calm, confident, and assuring. We had offers on our house a week after we went on the market, and his guidance on staging, listing price, and negotiating the sale price once we had offers all came from a place of experience and practicality. Once we sold our house, I didn't expect us to find our dream home right away, and was prepared to rent, but we didn't end up having to, as Peter helped us find our dream home right away, and was able to help us get it for the right price, even in an extremely competitive market where many buyers were over-paying. I could not recommend him more highly!"
"PJ was amazing and we couldn't have asked for a better experience from start to finish. I can't imagine a realtor having a better understanding of the area, our needs, and the bizarre circumstances COVID-19 has wrought. I have already recommended him to potential clients looking in this area and will continue to do so. Should we ever be in the market again we would not hesitate to use DeCicco Group again. "
"PJ was excellent to work with. He was extremely knowledgeable, patient with all of our questions and really helped us navigate the home buying process during such a crazy time. We saw countless homes over the last year and through all the ups and downs he always stayed calm and gave us the information so we could make an educated decision. Pj helped us find our dream home and we could not be happier! I would strongly recommend Pj to anyone looking for a home in the South Orange or Maplewood area."
"Peter DeCicco is the best! From the start of the process all the way to the end, Peter is there to help and guide. He is always available to ask questions, and makes the whole real estate process much easier. I recommend him 100%, you will definitely be happy! "
"We were lucky to meet Peter when we were looking to buy a house for the first time when we moved from Manhattan to Maplewood NJ. He was so good, knowledgeable and patient that we asked him to help us sell our house when we had to move about 7 years later. When we bought, he helped us negotiate the price down and when we sold, he got us way above asking. He is amazing! "
