"Pete has sold several homes for me. In all cases he knew values going in , what would work and what wouldn't. He has worked in town for years and knows all the brokers who do any volume and they all know he's good to work with. He also knows a wide variety of principals in town from his years of experience."
"It was a please working with Peter Livingston. We our first time home buyers so we were nervous. Peter's expertise and wisdom put us at ease. Not only is he knowledgeable, his lovely personality makes the whole process an enjoyable experience. I would highly recommend Peter Livingston!."
"Pete is the real deal. He is personable, knowledgeable and very hard working. In a market that some feel has begun to turn south, Pete walked us through the entire selling process of a significant property with an end result that was beyond our expectations. Pricing, property preparation, marketing, negotiating and closing were all seamless for my family due to Pete's hard work, experience and responsiveness.."
"Pete was recommended to us by another extremely happy buyer. Buying from out of state during a very narrow window of only a few days was stressful for us, but Pete maintained excellent communication with us for months prior to our house hunting trip. He put us at ease with his advice, and the listings he offered that sat happily within our parameters. When we arrived in Dallas, we hit the ground running. Pete lined up several dozen homes for us to see during the first 3 days. On the third day, he showed us the perfect home! He then worked quickly to help us get it under contract, and get it inspected all before we returned to our out-of-state home at the end of the week! We were so pleased with our experience, with Pete's understanding of Dallas, and with the respect he showed us throughout the process that we have without hesitation referred him to other friends considering relocation."
"Pete has extensive market knowledge, knowledge of construction and single family building practices and his demeanor in all aspects of business/negotiation is highly professional. Great all around guy and top notch single family realtor. Pete drove my wife and I through our selected area on multiple occasions and was able to secure our new home within one week. Pete was also instrumental in our location selection as we were new to the market. We couldn't be happier and would recommend Pete to anyone looking.."
