I can not say enough positives about our experience working with Peter as our realtor. We already knew him for many years as our neighbor and knew that if we ever wanted to sell our house we would go to him. After a preliminary conversation about pricing and what we would need to do to the house to make it market ready, he called several days later to tell us he had an interested buyer. It all moved ahead from there and exactly 4 months later we closed on the house. Peter provided information and guidance throughout the process and lost of humor when things seemed overwhelming. We accomplished what can take many months and up to several years to do in those 4 short months and ended with a successful sale. None of it would have happened without Peter’s involvement- his contacts, knowledge and overall expertise made the experience a win!
I highly recommend Pete Engelmann. He is a pleasure to work with, reliable, insightful and honest. When I sold my home, Pete was a wealth of knowledge and resources. He helped not only with the marketing and selling of my home, but provided reliable and well-priced contractors for repairs, helped supervise those repairs, and then closed the deal on selling the house. He made the process as easy as it could be. Pete is your guy for selling real estate!
It is such a pleasure to recommend Peter Engelmann! I was guided through the process of selling my house, not only with expertise and knowledge, but with the highest care and consideration. As it is a daunting project, I was able to rely on Pete’s patience and never-ending accommodation, be it weekends or evenings, to make sure that all the pieces of the sale fell into place. I warmly recommend Pete to become Your realtor!
When my 85 year-old mother decided it was time to move to a retirement community, we listed her home with Pete Engelmann. It had been at least 25 years since anyone in my family had bought or sold a house in New Jersey. We had no idea how difficult the process had become. My mother does not drive and could not really participate in the process, which requires a volley of paper and digital communication with the agent, inspectors, appraisers, the attorney and any workmen involved. Peter was a fabulous communicator and gives his time and counsel freely. He was there to get everything done that needed to be done, with incredible patience and understanding of my mother’s needs. The family who purchased the house needed it quickly, and we moved my mother out, but lacked the time to find a home for numerous possessions. Peter knew who to call to get things removed in the few remaining days before the closing. My mother was happy with the price she received for her home, and the time it took to sell it. I honestly feel that I have a friend in Peter. He has been selling real estate for a long time, and he has a great sense of humor. He made the process so much easier for us than it might have been with someone less patient and knowledgeable.
All good things to say about realtor Pete Engelmann! As a first time home buyer in Somerville NJ, Pete really coached me through the process every step of the way. Buying a home could be stressful, but Pete always had the right answers, and would always know the right time to crack a needed joke.
I would definitely recommend using Pete for any size home purchase, he has tons of experience, and really knows the ins and outs of the reality world. I am confident Pete got me the best price, and worked hard at negotiating the add ons to really make it a great deal.
If you are undecided on a realtor, I would definitely give Pete a call, and hear what he has to say. His personality will draw you in, and you can really tell he has a passion for, and deep knowledge of the area.
Best of luck on your future home purchase with Pete!
I listed my townhouse in the Hills in Bedminster with Peter Engelmann in May 2016 and am so glad that I chose him as my realtor. There was quite a bit of work that needed to be done to get the home ready for sale including obtaining permits. Peter’s knowledge of local professionals who could do the work efficiently and for a fair price proved to be invaluable during this process. He took care of everything and certainly went above and beyond the call of duty. I would highly recommend Peter to anyone looking for a hardworking and honest realtor.
Pete did a great job marketing our house. His attention to detail, the beautiful pics of the house, always being there to actually market our house at showings (not leaving it to a random realtor who didn’t know our house), immediate feedback after all showings – this was what made our experience with Pete the best. Refreshing to have someone who we knew was working for us full time. I would recommend Pete to anyone, whether they’re buying or selling.
Pete was excellent! The listing was extremely comprehensive and Pete spent a lot of time showing the house and being there when I (the seller) could not be present. Communications were frequent and meaningful. Pete has a large list of contacts when work is needed to be done. I would highly recommend him to sell your house as I couldn’t have been more pleased with the results.
We were relocating to South Carolina from New Jersey and had a time frame. Peter worked with us on every detail. From the beautiful photos he had done of the home to recommended ways to better sell the home. He knew the area very well and how to market the home. Very professional, caring and kept us informed on every showing and always provided us with feedback. I would highly recommend Peter for the sale or purchase of your home.
Peter isn’t just a wonderful realtor, as detailed by all the other reviews–he’s the nicest person you could ever meet. After my husband and I moved to PG, he made sure to connect us with other young couples and really helped us get integrated into the community. We’ve only lived here about 4 years but we both feel as though we’ve been here forever, and that’s largely due to the kindness and hospitality we’ve received from Peter.
As a real estate investor for 27 years I have dealt with many real estate agents. Peter Engelmann has been the best real estate agent that I have had the opportunity with which to work. He is extremely knowledgeable, honest, thorough and goes “above and beyond” what I expected during the numerous transactions that he has handled for our company. I would gladly refer Peter to my family, friends and colleagues. Peter gets the job done when nobody else can and is truly a professional.
Pete went above and beyond to help me sell my Mother’s home after she had to move to Assisted Living. I live out of state and he basically handled every aspect of the sale to get us the best outcome. He was realistic about what we were dealing with and went out of his way to remedy any problems that might have come up. He always got back to me very quickly to answer any questions or concerns that I may have had and he always acted in our best interest. He is very personable, upbeat and a true negotiator. He has vast knowledge of the local area. I would not hesitate to refer him to someone who needed a real estate agent.
Pete helped me purchase my first home a little while ago and believe me I did not make things easy for him. The home I was interested in purchasing ended up being a short-sale, which was no small task. After six months of going back and forth with numerous individuals and between the massive amounts of hoops we both had to jump through to get this closed, Pete was by my side every step of the way. When everything was said and done, Pete helped me open and close the pool that was on the property as I never knew how to work on a pool. Pete’s knowledge of real estate and the Somerset Hills area in general are second to none.
Pete helped us sell an older home in Basking Ridge that had been in our family since 1956, and rented out for the past 13 years. Pete has a background in construction and was very knowledgable about the upgrades and issues that needed to be addressed. Since we had never sold a home before, he walked us through the process step by step, from listing to closing. If you are looking for a friendly, truthful, and easy to work with realtor, then make Pete your go to guy!
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 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.
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!
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”.
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.
Peter was the realtor for the home we ended up purchasing in Peapack, NJ. I cannot relate how absolutely satisfied we were in our transaction and the personalized attention we received. No request was too much and was always met with a welcome smile and a means to address our requests, including getting into the home prior to the close to take measurements, take pictures and do all those other little things that excited buyers like to do.
Peter, who is a resident of the town is extremely knowledgeable about the area, homes, home construction and services. He is trustworthy and honest and keeps his commitments to you. He goes beyond what I would have expected from any one else in that profession. There is no doubt that the Borough of Peapack & Gladstone is a better place because of Peter Engelmann representing buyers and sellers in our area.
Peter has sold two properties for us during the past 24 months. Without a doubt he is knowledgeable about all aspects of the selling and buying process and successfully completed the sales to our complete satisfaction.
More importantly, what distinguishes Peter from everyone else is his absolute commitment to do whatever it takes to get the job done. Whether arranging for inspections, cosmetic repairs, or waiting countless hours for service people to show up he does it all with amazing patience and a wonderful sense of humor.
I would strongly recommend Peter for either a sale or purchase of residential property.
Pete Engelmann is a first class human being. He is so honest, it is hard to believe. He will not just find you a home, he’ll find you the right home. He’s been in the real-estate business for a long time and he will make a difficult process as painless as possible and support you each step of the way.
Pete helped us get our home in NJ when we first moved from Florida. If not for him the entire process would have been a complete nightmare as ,save for two trips to NJ (the second one to close our new home) during a whole year , we completed the entire process from Florida. He knew the area like the back of his hand and understood me and my husband very well. We have now been happy residents of NJ for the past 4 years.
Pete went above and beyond as our agent –both with helping us buy our first home and introducing us to the area, and then five years later helping us to sell that home and find a new home to fit our growing family. He made sure everything was taken care of and always had excellent recommendations for help when work on the house was required. He always had time for us and made sure we understood things at every step of the way.
Pete is the best! He recently sold our home on Brook Hollow in Gladstone. His help and attention to detail was amazing. We actually live in Florida now and were not there to handle maintenance issues and some repairs to be made after the inspection. He has a vast wealth of knowledge about Gladstone and who to go to to get the job done! He also coordinated workers who needed to get into the house to make a few repairs. He is outstanding! He is very responsive to phone calls and emails. Pete was also our realtor when we bought the house 15 years ago and helped us rent it our 5 years ago when we moved to Florida. I honestly don’t think there is another realtor who would have done for us what Pete has! Highly recommend Peter Engelmann!
Going through the sale of one’s home can be a daunting journey. A divorced woman, with minimal knowledge about the procedure, Pete took me under his wing and went above and beyond. Not only did he help during all of the phases of getting my house ready to sell, inspections etc….he also was instrumental in helping me on the other side with the renting process of my townhome. Every step of the way Pete was there to answer questions and get the job done. He is a true gentleman and a good person. I would recommend him without any hesitations!!!
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.
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.
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 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.
