Without Peter my family would not have purchased our dream home. Peter has both the shrewd instincts of negotiator coupled with a practical knowledge of building construction. On top of that, he is also a really nice guy. Did I mention he maintains excellemt relationships with other realtors? He is definitely someone you want in your corner with a tricky deal.
Pete has helped my family and I buy, sell and rent houses for 15+ years. He knows how to deal with people who can often be difficult and emotional with the stresses associated with a real estate transaction in a firm but supportive way (yes me included!). I trust his judgment and his opinions implicitly; there are some things he “just knows”.
Peter Engelmann was an amazing person to work with: incredibly smart, the patience of a saint, and very well-respected among other agents. He would walk into a house and tell us within minutes “the truth” that no other agents would tell us. He was honest by pointing out the good and bad of each home we visited. That really set him apart. Peter was not interested in selling us a house quickly, he was interested in finding the right house for our needs. Once we found our dream home, Peter’s rapport with the other agent and negotiation skills set us apart from the other potential buyers and made it happen. On top of all this, after we moved in, Peter reached out to the moms in the area with young children, so I would feel welcome in the neighbor. He is one of the most kind-hearted people I have ever encountered. A real gem!
As a long time Peapack Gladstone resident, Pete helped us determine the best way to go about selling our house. He knows lots of reputable contractors who helped us get our house ready and in perfect order. He helped on the buy end too as he knows the town and got to know our house so well. He could really speak to the benefits of the house and the town/area. Any concerns by the buyer–Pete was right on top of it–with advice and suggestions. This was a down-size move…leaving the home where we brought up our children…so it was emotional. Peter was very helpful and understanding all along the way. Totally recommend Pete for the Buying and Selling sides.
Pete helped us to sell our Town House and Condominium several years ago. In his professional way, he found buyers for both of these residences. He presented each one in a positive light with outstanding enthusiasm, description and eventually they both sold to appropriate buyers.
In 2012, we needed to sell our house in Bedminster in order to move to North Carolina. Pete found the resources for us to have a house sale, and to help us sort out the contents & belongings for a major down-sizing move. We moved to NC before the house was sold, and we left the business end of the sale in Pete’s capable hands. He found the buyers, and closed the deal 2 or 3 months after we moved. In the existing market, this was an enviable task, and all went smoothly. We are happy to say that the new owners are very pleased with the house. We have Pete Engelmann to thank for the smooth transition, which he made possible in a professional, efficient transaction.
As a first time buyer, I found Pete to be extremely knowledgable. Furthermore, Pete is honest. He has the experience and expertise to point out both the negative and the positive, which I found very valuable as an inexperienced buyer.
