Peter has sold two houses for us now, and each time he was professional, attentive, and totally committed to our needs. He worked tirelessly with us, advised us, and guided us through the process to get us good prices in short times. Our first house sold in just over a month and the second in just two weeks in a bad market. I cannot recommend Peter O’Neil too much. He’s a gem.
It is so rare to have someone on your side who really listens and responds to your needs. Peter is the kind of agent who is always one step ahead. We were new to Portland and had no idea what kind of house we wanted or in what neighborhood. The more I honed in on what I wanted, the more it became apparent my husband wanted the opposite. Peter became our patient tour guide and careful listener. Never, ever a pushy salesman, he took the time to understand the very individual needs of both my husband and I. Over the course of nearly TWO years, he took copious notes and didn't call me until he found our dream house at the best possible price in our first-choice neighborhood. Not only did Peter find the only house we'd ever agree on, he found one we could actually afford, made sure it was in mint condition and then managed the deal through closing when the sellers' agent fell short. He pretty much saved my marriage in the process and I'm forever grateful for what he has done for my family. Even my two-year old son is in love with him!
Peter acted as our buyer's agent and we couldn't have been more pleased. He quickly got to know us and thus was always able to show us homes that were good matches for both our basic needs and our stylistic tastes. Peter is very available and accommodating -- he always worked with our difficult schedules to help us find our dream home. We loved Peter's highly-competent but laid-back style and would work again with him in a heartbeat.
One more time I want to say thanks that you worked so hard to help selling my old house during this difficult time. It touched my heart when I saw you immediately started to improve the front and back yards and rearranged the inside to make the sale come true. I want to thank Peter for getting different contractors to work without any cash at hand and finished the jobs on time. I want to thank you for your management that helped me free from worry when I was thousand miles away.
I met with several Realtors before I talked to Peter about selling my home, but when I did meet him it was obvious he was the one for me. He was completely prepared, knew what he was talking about, and, unlike so many others, he seemed to be more interested in my requirements and desires than his. Working with him proved my first impression correct. Few people would put as much effort into helping me get my house sold as he did.
