After a year of languishing on the market, we switched realtors and hired Peter. Peter helped our family sell our Peapack home using a strategic approach of leveraging his extensive knowledge of what attracts buyers to the area. He helped us identify our property’s attributes that were most attractive to buyers at the time; and a price that was competitive and got us to closing. He goes the extra mile. Not only is Peter a smart realtor, but he’s also a great, personable guy with a sincere interest in his client’s success. We wish we had hired Peter from the beginning because we would have sold our house sooner and known Peter longer!
Peter Engelmann has come to the rescue for us twice now- once to sell my parents’ home after another realtor struggled for nearly a year. He was recommended to us by a contractor. Peter stepped in and sold the house for a great price within a few months. He knew the market, the buyers and how to make small changes to make the house more desirable. The second time was recent – in this crazy market, Peter was able to secure the perfect home for us! He educated us on the different areas we were looking at, showed us houses within our target price, and guided us through the process to ensure we were happy with our final decision. He has a great reputation among his fellow realtors, businesses, contractors and community- he’s a pleasure to work with, responsive and transparent. If you want honesty and someone who is both an expert and looking out for your best interests- Peter is your guy.
Pete Engelmann is simply a fantastic realtor. Pete was totally responsive to all my needs and requests. He has encyclopedic knowledge of not just of residential real estate in Peapack-Gladstone and surrounding towns including Bernardsville, Far Hills, Bedminster and Basking Ridge, but also of school systems, local governments, bankers, lawyers, contractors, and tradesmen, etc. In short, everything and everyone you need to know to buy or sell a home in the area. Pete was extremely helpful to me to get my house ready to market. He then did a fabulous job preparing marketing and promotional materials, pricing the house and negotiating and securing the sale at a good price, all in a very short period of time. And finally, he helped insure that the closing process including inspections and legal reviews went smoothly. I wholeheartedly and enthusiastically recommend Pete.
Pete is the hardest working Realtor in this business, and we were so grateful to work with him!
He goes above and beyond in every aspect of the buying process – keeping us on track, being the intermediary when we weren’t sure who to ask what, checking in regularly, offering thoughts and guidance on everything from how to rent our current home to contractors for the next one. He knows this business, and all of its moving parts, inside and out, and he shares that knowledge generously.
He also has a strong, working relationship with the best local Attorneys and Loan Officers, which resulted in us having an amazing team resulting in the smoothest buying process we have ever been through, despite the times we are in
Pete was tremendous from start to finish. We took a true personal interest in selling our home and helping throughout the entire process. He was there to help with anything needed, even if it was not related to the sale of the house. Not only did he sell the house quickly but went out of his way to find me an apartment just in time for the closing. If you are looking for someone that you can trust and who will go the extra mile then you should use Pete if you are buying or selling.
Peter sold my mother’s house in 2017, and sold my house in 2019. As Peter will tell you, the staging and preparation of the house are the “fun” part, after that it is a full contact sport. Peter knows the ropes, and knows how to find all the people you will need to prepare your house for sale. His mother was a top realtor, and his father was a builder, so Pete knows how to do things that other realtors don’t. He has an irrepressible sense of humor which comes in handy. He can also provide reassurance that only comes from experience. Believe me, when selling your house, you want him on the roller coaster with you. I suppose we could have done it without him, but I really don’t know how.
