Testimonials: Vancouver Real Estate Agent

  • We have worked with Peter Raab both buying and selling a couple of times over the past 12 years and cannot say enough about his dedication, industry savvy and also the seamless work of his team. On top of all that Peter is just fantastic person to work with.

    For our recent sale everything was made clear and great advice was given in relation to all aspect of the sale such as pricing, when to put it on the market, marketing, staging and more.

    We have recommended Peter to friends on several occasions and will continue to do so. Thanks Peter for making selling our house so easy!

  • From the moment I called Pete to inquire about selling our condo in the Village at False Creek (Vancouver) I knew I had made the right choice. Pete and his partner Molly took care of everything, right down to the smallest detail, and kept me informed every step of the way.  Can't say enough good things!

  • Peter Raab made our home selling experience so flawless and easy. With very little direction, he helped with so many details that we basically just made one call, and our place was sold within a couple weeks. So impressed by his professionalism and attention to detail. He is so prepared to take on all that is necessary to get to the goal.  Thanks so much for all you do Pete!

  • Selling our apartment with Pete was awesome.
    From the second we said go, it took under a week to photograph, list, promote and sell our place – and Pete made it all super easy. 
    His insanely positive attitude and extremely organized execution of the sale made this the least stressful part of moving.
    As promised, he blew it out of the water! Thanks Pete!

  • Thank YOU! You have really done a great job and have clearly gone that extra mile with the way you marketed my place with the use of social media, 3D floorplans, beautiful photographs taken by a professional photographer and the staging of my place after my furniture were removed. I made the right choice when it came to realtors for sure. Of course it is largely due to the very professional, personalized and colourful brochure I received in my mailbox that I decided to contact you! I did receive ads & info from other realtors in my mailbox too but none as impressive as yours.

  • As I enter my 8th real estate deal with Pete I want to acknowledge his excellent professionalism - and he always gets results!  I have appreciated his challenging questions that clarify whether a property is really suiting my needs. Pete is all that I want in a realtor; reliable, conscientious, insightful, humorous, and kind.  
    Thank you Pete,

  • Pete Raab has provided outstanding advice, service and support as he worked on selling my house. From the initial discussions about price, staging and marketing of the property, Pete exhibited extraordinary skill in delivering the best print and media exposure possible. Combining the open houses and the media blitz, allowed Pete to manage to provide me with multiple offers for my property. His effort was manifest in the number of offers made above list price. For his incredible business acumen, energy and enthusiasm I shall be forever grateful. And yet it was his understanding of my love of the family home that made it possible for me to sell the place without feeling that I had deserted a loved one.

  • Having Pete as my realtor was like having a best friend in the business! I completely trusted his expert advice in all matters, and he took care of all the little nuances that make the big differences in the sale of the house, including calming my own fears. Everything went seamlessly and quickly, and I knew he had my best interests at heart instead of his own, thats what makes him the best! I loved my home for 8 years and Pete knew I'd be a little sad when the sold sign went up and he surprised me with a BIG cheque, that gesture was an amazing thing to do!
    I can't thank you enough Pete!

  • We presented Pete with a challenging task – sell our home quickly. We found the perfect townhouse in North Vancouver but needed to sell our Vancouver condo in order to make the deal happen. Pete was up to the task. He immediately took charge, set the game plan and got to work. Within 4 days we staged our condo, had professional photos taken, listed our property, hosted 2 open houses and found a buyer. We never thought in a million years that Pete would find a buyer in only 4 days – but he delivered on his promises! It was a pleasure to work with Pete. He’s professional, organized, proactive and a great communicator. His greatest strength is his ability to instill trust and confidence throughout the process. Purchasing and selling property at the same time can be very stressful, but Pete simplified everything and made it a positive experience. If you’re looking for a realtor, we would highly recommend Pete. There's a reason why he's consistently a top producer in Vancouver!

  • Pete sold our house for us recently and we couldn't be happier. He gave clear directions on needed updates, great input on managing our tenants through the sales process, and good strategic advice on how to price the house. The property was marketed extremely well and resulted in 150 groups visiting over 3 open houses.

  • Thank you for the excellent job you did in selling my condo so quickly last month. Both Bill and I were very appreciative of your immediate assessment of our situation and your agreement to help us even though we were located so far away in Cape Breton, NS. The whole experience seems somewhat surreal now. Things seemed to progress at a whirlwind speed after the first, and only, weekend showing. The elegant furnishings Karli (Refresh Home Staging) selected gave the suite that sophisticated, yet cozy look it needed for a prospective client to view the possibility of living in it. I am glad I took your guidance about this and feel it was a well-spent investment.

    I must compliment you on your ongoing and easy communication through both email and on the telephone. I always felt completely confident that the progress of the sale was well managed and I was kept well informed throughout the month. Lastly it was very kind of you to dispose of the unwanted belongings in the suite. It was a thoughtful, personal touch that I hadn’t expected and made me feel better knowing that the new owner would be moving in with a fresh start. All in all, everything went so well and so quickly, that I would gladly refer your services should the occasion arise.

  • One week that’s all it took! Pete made it fun, exciting, yet he was very professional and on the ball throughout the whole experience. As I was a first time seller, he was there whenever I needed questions answered. Pete went above and beyond in all area's, from our first meeting, to the marketing, to setting up for the open house. Thanks Again Pete!

  • Sold my house in less than 5 days… Pete made the preparation and sale of my house a pleasant and rewarding experience. I had been thinking of selling for some time and I was overwhelmed with all of the work that needed to be done in a very unpredictable market. Once I contacted Pete he soon relieved my concerns and walked me step by step through the process. Pete went the extra mile by advising how to make my old house look new, and even contributed with some furniture and wall hangings. I feel that Peter Raab is extremely loyal to his clients and very knowledgably in his field. Pete's comprehensive marketing tactics coupled with his quick thinking strategic mind, make Pete the dynamic Agent that we're all looking for. On top of all this, he really knows how to make you smile.

  • Pete helped me sell my condo and buy a new one. There were many twists and turns along the way but Pete navigated the waters with ease. Not only is he an expert in his field, he's also a great guy and a pleasure to work with. I've been at my new place for over a year and I'm loving it. Thanks Pete! I look forward to working with you again in the future.

  • Pete, I just wanted to drop in on you and thank you for all the hard work, time and effort you put into finding me my new place. You were a great help and very professional, and I am happy I decided to work with you. And now we have to be friends for at 35 more years. How exciting. So thank you very much.

  • We worked with Pete to sell our apartment in the West End and buy our new town home in Fairview Slopes. Based on a recommendation, we called Pete in March 2009 to discuss our plans. Our apartment hit the market in early April and sold in 8 days, for $8,000 above asking. The sale of our apartment coordinated perfectly with the purchase of our new home and we were able to negotiate a rent back from the new purchasers for two months while we renovated our new home. All of this was accomplished in less than one month in a "market slump". Pete is knowledgeable, organized, and a straight shooter. Not to mention, a pleasure to hang out with. We look forward to working with him again and highly recommend him.

  • As first time home buyers, we learned that Pete Raab is exactly the kind of realtor you want to have by your side during the process. From the beginning, he helped us to develop our 'wish-list', critically view properties and navigate our way through the real estate market. Pete provided expert advice and support until we found exactly the right home for us. We are so appreciative and will highly recommend his service to others.

  • Hi Pete, I just wanted to say thanks again for your help in the whole home buying process. Being a first-time buyer I probably had more questions about things than the average person; not to mention pestering you with all those emails. You were great with answering them and helping me to understand things better so that I could make the decisions that were right for me. I won't hesitate to go through you for when it comes time to sell my place and to look for a new one. I will definitely recommend you to friends and family who are looking for a realtor.

  • I really appreciated working with Peter as a first time home buyer. His low-key approach and impressive listening skills helped me feel that Peter knew what I was looking for and wasn't wasting my time looking at places that weren't a fit. I never felt pressured to buy something quickly and Peter's attitude of wanting to get me into a place I felt fantastic about was the key. During negotiations, Peter helped me manage to get the home I wanted for a significantly lower price than I expected to pay. I highly recommend having Peter on your side during any real estate purchase! Thanks a million Pete!

  • Hi Pete, I just wanted to thank you for the expertise that you demonstrated with the recent purchase of our new home and revenue property in Vancouver. It was always a pleasure to go out on a tour with you. We both felt that we were not pressured or rushed into buying anything. When we had a tough decision you always told us the reasons why we should keep looking. You were very accommodating when our preferences would change almost daily and supported our reasons for these changes. When the time came to make an offer, no time was wasted and your expert advice resulted in a done deal that we are very happy with. Thanks so much Pete!!

  • Peter was fantastic in helping me purchase my first condo a year and a half ago. 18 months later, the 600 sq foot. condo in kits turned a profit of $110K and I could not have been happier with Peter's help and professionalism during the selling process. Whether you are buying or selling (or both), I can't recommend Pete enough. He's excellent. I met Peter Raab through a mutual friend and was instantly impressed with his professionalism and his strong understanding of my needs. Peter negotiated an incredible deal for me for a one bedroom condo in kits and he was always available to answer questions along the way. Peter Raab is extrememely organized, efficient, and has an excellent rapport with people. He covers all bases so when it comes time to the signing the forms, there are no hesitations. I'm very happy in my new home and continue a great relationship with Peter. When you are looking to buy or sell a home, I highly recommend Peter Raab.

  • The buying process was a new experience for me having never owned a place. Pete was very helpful, taking me through the different steps, and explaining everything I needed to know. And making me feel comfortable without any pressure. I appreciated his laid back, but professional approach, throughout our time working together.

  • Thanks for taking the stress out of our first home buying experience. We found your guidance through the process extremely comforting, and your knowledge and experience with buying and selling in downtown Vancouver helped us to find a place that we'll love to live in and that will be a good long term investment. Thanks for negotiating a winning offer on our behalf. We're really happy in our new home.

  • Most people complain that there no commendable real estate agents available. We were just such people until we were introduced to Peter Raab. Peter is so versatile he can work with people of any age, and he knows the real estate market to such an extent that he can sell a house in Kerrisdale or an apartment in downtown Vancouver. His brilliant marketing strategy helped us sell our home for considerably more than we originally expected. He is careful to take on only so many clients as he can devote full time so we always had prompt responses to our calls and emails. Thank you Peter.

  • Dear: Pete, Thank you! We just wanted to write you a little note of appreciation. We thought you did a fantastic job on helping us find our first home. Being first time buyers we really had no idea what to expect, you were great at explaining every detail throughout the buying process. You were very personable, approachable and professional. We really appreciated that you made us feel like you're only clients. Can't wait to work with you again when it comes time to find something new. Thanks again,

  • We totally enjoyed our real estate experience with Peter Raab. He provided us with seller as well as buyer services. In providing these services he demonstrated creative and astute marketing skills and always listened to our needs. He has an excellent manner with potential buyers and as a result obtained a much higher than asking price for the sale of our home. We have already recommended him to our friends and family and would certainly use his services again. Sincerely,

  • We have nothing but positive things to say about our experience in dealing with Peter. He was confident, organized and so enthusiastic from day one. What really made a positive difference was the excellent rapport he had with other realtors when offers were being presented - we really felt that was the key to getting such an amazing price for our condo we sold in Kitsilano. We've already recommended Pete to our friends and co-workers.

  • Pete and I had a great working relationship during the sale of my home and purchase of my new condo in Kitsilano. There were many challenges we faced (ie: temperamental buyers, delays from sellers, etc) and through dialogue and open communication we managed any issue that arose. I am completely ecstatic with the results Pete achieved for me.

  • Dear Pete, Buying a home for the first time is never easy, especially when it involves moving across the country and to a city you know nothing about. My wife and I had many unanswered questions until we came across your website and had the opportunity to speak with you directly. Your patience, professionalism and expertise regarding the downtown Vancouver market was in a class of its own. Most remarkable was the tireless effort you went to in order to find us the perfect home. While for most agents that would be enough, you presevered throughout the negotiation process and landed us a price below asking. In a white hot real estate market like Vancouver, that feat is nothing short of magical... but then again when it comes to real estate, you are a wizard. Thanks for everything, Pete.
    All the best.

  • We counted on Pete's expertise to walk us thru our first home purchase. He was very patient and left no question unanswered. He helped us make several critical decisions that helped immensely in a very hot real estate market. It was crucial to have someone we trusted being able to represent us in front of strata council members, selling agents, and inspectors when we couldn't be there. Everyone who met Pete made a point to tell us "What a nice realtor" you have. We will be using Pete when the time comes to sell our new property...who knows when that will be as we are extremely stoked to be in our great new home - See more at: http://www.peterraab.ca/testimonials.html#sthash.5WT24xfo.dpuf
