Peter and Mari are Awesome! This was our first home purchase. Why we would work with them again: Coming from a customer service driven sales position myself , my expectations are high and my expectations were not only meet but exceeded. The “Concierge” service advertised is a real thing. They are experienced with every borough in Pleasanton. We always felt like our best interest , our wants / needs were the priority. We liked working with a local family team.

“The McDowell Real Estate Group are very professional and work extremely well with their clients. We interviewed the top agents in our area to list our custom home and found that the approach and process they provided met our exact requirements where others were lacking. We have bought, developed and many homes over the years and our experience with them was by far the best.”
