Testimonials

Pete recently helped sell my home in Santa Cruz. Early in the process, he gave me advice on repairs I should do with a singular focus on having a positive ROI from the sale. Once these repairs were complete Pete explained the current state of the market to me, and laid out a strategy to make sure that the home sold quickly at a price that was appropriate for the home and the location. Petes strategy worked like a charm, with the house selling quickly with multiple offers over taking. I couldn’t be happier with the way this sale worked out, all thanks to Pete!

Living out of state made the sale of our family's home problematic. Pete, and his team, however, made the entire operation seem effortless. Pete is an outstanding Realtor. His knowledge base is immense, and he has connections with people and businesses that make the whole process seamless. His comps and strategies are spot on. He and his team are consummate pros when it comes to communication, timelines, and synergy. I had absolutely no issue with trusting Pete and his team with the handling the sale. My only regret is that I don't have more property to throw his way. Highly recommended.

Pete Cullen laid out his "game plan" for getting my house sold and followed through every step of the way. He had contacts for everything we needed to do. Within 6 weeks of getting possession of the house from the renters , we prepared the house for showing (including new carpet and paint, inspections and small details like replacing light bulbs, rescreening the front door and powerwashing the deck), had several open houses, got a couple of offers and got through escrow! Pete and his team were professional, knowledgeable and efficient!

If your looking for a realtor here he is! your're realtor is single most important person in the home buying process and Pete did not disappoint. I manage a company with over 500 employees, I have to deal with professionals all day. Pete stood up to all my expectation and some.
 
Pete was a home builder so he had tons of valuable information on each home we looked at. he even brought us to one home just so we could see some things to look out for.
 
Pete's response time was always spectacular and every time we went to meet him at a house he was there before us and im always 5 minutes early.
 
When it came time to close on our now new home Pete had our back all the way and made sure we stayed on schedule.
 
Pete also knows a lot of good contacts that have helped us with our new home.
 
I would strongly recommend Pete to anyone and he will remain a resource for my family for along time.

It took me two years to find the right house in Santa Cruz - Pete was with me the whole way. He found me a great rental while I looked. He is smart, knowledgeable and kind. I got a great price on the home of my dreams.

Pete was wonderful to work with. As a first time homebuyer I had a lot of questions and Pete would respond quickly. Throughout the process of viewing various homes he would give an honest assessment of the property and the pros and cons of each location. He is easy to work with and is a great communicator. I always felt like he understood my concerns and was proactive about addressing any issues that would arise. I absolutely would recommend working with Pete!

Selling our house in 2018 was the second time my husband and I worked with Pete Cullen. He is professional and knowledgeable, honest and forthright in all his dealings. Our situation was somewhat complicated, but Pete's competence and efficiency throughout made it all seem easy. We can't recommend him highly enough.

Bought a Townhouse home in 2018 in Watsonville, CA.
Pete Collin was the realtor for the sale of my parents home in so Cal California 2 years ago. I cannot Verbalize how Pete facilitated this transaction to do him Justice. There so many aspects that Pete help us with a in order for my parents to sell their home it is hard to list them all but to name a few he came out and did a site inspection at the very beginning and gave us at list of invaluable compliments. He followed through throughout this entire process often acting as if he were the one doing the work himself. Pete Cullen has a background in construction and it was obvious. During the salesman part of the transaction he performed excellently stage the home in a beautiful manner and because of the recommendations he made it wasn't entirely different house then when my parents lived there. We had offers within days to in fact both significantly over the asking price and when the 1st deal fell apart Pete had already signed the backup offer so there was no stress in the smooth transition and the backup offer on the home today. In my opinion you would be foolhardy and lying to yourself if you think another realtor can perform better for you than Pete. Cherrs

Pete did an amazing job helping my wife and I go through the entire process of finding and buying our first home.

Pete spent a few hours first meeting with us on a Saturday and he left us with some valuable insight and his personal assurance that he was going to be on the lookout for properties that fit the price and location parameters we gave him.

He sent us an email Friday morning about a property that was going on the market that same day. He offered to show us the property that same day which was the day before the official open house. We saw it, loved it, and after some discussion my wife and I asked Pete to go ahead and put an offer in for us.

There were multiple offers and, even when we were feeling discouraged, Pete kept reassuring us that "if it's meant to be it will be".

Our offer was chosen and Pete worked closely with our mortgage broker Mark Junod to complete a quick closing.

I strongly refer Pete because of his willingness to go above and beyond for his clients in terms of patience and answering even the most detailed questions coming from those who have no experience in the housing market.

I will stress to all those looking for a home that Pete was a great asset to have in this rough and competitive housing market.

We couldn't have asked for a more helpful realtor than Pete Cullen. Pete is easy to work with, accessible, exceptionally professional, and thoroughly honest and ethical. We found Pete to be very knowledgeable about the greater Santa Cruz area. Pete was an advocate, someone in our corner to help us through the complexities of locating a property and negotiating a favorable outcome. We felt supported from beginning to end.

This, the second time working with Pete, was a home sale. Pete, honest and straight talking, was an excellent consultant on how to get the home ready and priced right. One listed, the sale went quickly and for more than we had hoped for. Looking forward to working with Pete again in the near future.

Pete is an amazing realtor, advisor, and friend. My wife and I enjoyed working with Pete and were very happy we settled on him as our realtor. He has an immense knowledge of properties and the communities in which they reside. As our selling agent he had us do repairs that were worth our while and gave us tips to have our home look in tip-top shape. He handled all the paperwork and made sure all questions were answered appropriately. When it came time to receive our offer and negotiate he had the knowledge and the skills to make sure we did not leave anything on the table. I would certainly use Pete again if we moved back to the area, and would recommend him to any friends or family needing of his services in the greater Santa Cruz area in the future.

I feel so fortunate to have been referred to Pete! He worked tirelessly for me for over a year, making sure that I found just the right property. He was always patient, professional, resourceful, diligent, and prompt. I will give him the highest recommendation to all of my friends. Pete was also extremely knowlegable regarding every aspect of home buying. As a former contractor he literally knows real estate from the inside out! Working with him felt more like working with a team member and not just a buyer's agent. I'm also certain that he worked just as hard for me to find my little condo as he would have for someone who was in the market for a mulit-million dollar property. I am immensly grateful to Pete for all of him time and effort!

Pete worked with us for more than a year to help find the right house. We're not the easiest clients and i definitely appreciate his patience as we honed in on our expectations and outcome. Pete has also been very helpful after close of escrow with local guidance to help us settle in. Thank you Pete.

We were buying and selling homes concurrently which was very stressful.

Pete put in a lot of time (which included a lot of "hand-holding" and talking us through the process) to get our home listed and sold while also helping us to find a replacement home. He was very upbeat and professional through the entire process.

I was very impressed with Pete's professionalism. I had a great experience working with Pete on the sale of my condo. He was always available when i needed him and he got me the results i was looking for.

Sold a Single Family home in 2015 in Soquel, CA.
We were looking for a multi-residential property for a 1031 exchange. Pete gave us references to set up the exchange at the last minute. He told us about a 4-plex, and the next day we made an offer, but they had just accepted another offer. He was diligent and thorough in presenting us with the limited options available. Finally, he called and said the offer on the original four-plex had fallen through. We made an offer the same day, before it went back on the market, and we're happy owners now. We had a very short escrow, and Pete managed to organize a contractor, plumber, roofer and window installer to give bids on the work we wanted done all in less than a week. He's prompt and responsive to all calls, and gets things done. Nothing short of amazing to work with!!!

Pete Cullen helped us negotiate a rather complex sale. We were moving from outside of the area and there was never a problem with communication between us. We especially appreciated the stress-free experience we had working with Pete and highly recommend him to anyone buying or selling their home.

Bought a home in 2014 in CA 95003.
We have been very impressed with Pete Cullen, our real estate agent. We started with a long distance relationship, since we were located near the East Coast and wanted to buy a second home in the Santa Cruz area. He was very responsive and understood what we were looking for. When we did visit, we had an extensive group of homes to look at to fine tune what we were looking for. In the end, we found the home we wanted on that visit. Pete was great with the negotiations and working with us and the seller. After we came to an agreement, he then stewarded us through the entire process, kept us on track, kept the bank on track and dealt with the sellers and their agent. All of this was in a professional manner. And then for icing on the cake - he has lined up all of the appropriate people to maintain the house until we can move in. He has gone above and beyond the call of duty and for that we are very grateful. I would highly recommend Pete to anyone looking for a home in the Santa Cruz/Aptos/Watsonville area. He knows the area very well and is highly regarded in the community.

Pete was very professional, had great mechanisms for selling our home with other realtors and the public, and was very helpful in finding contractors who could help with different aspects of the sale.

Pete Cullen is dedicated to making your home purchase or sale an easy and exceptional experience. He found our perfect location at the right price then stayed close to the deal to make sure things went smoothly. Pete has a vast network of exceptional professional to manage the mortgage process, inspections, appraisals, and contractors to make every step of the transaction seamless. We actually closed escrow ahead of schedule by 7 days. Seriously amazing guy to work with. I wish I could give him more stars for his local knowledge and network. ??

Bought a Townhouse home in 2014 in Aptos, CA.
Pete has done an excellent job guiding us through the house buying process. For the house inspections, he helped us get all the relevant contractors and reports in a timely manner. Thanks to Pete’s due diligence, he also discovered some missing county level signoffs that all other real estate agents ever involved in handling this property had overlooked.

Pete is very nice to work with, follows through on commitments and gets the job done.

If I ever had to buy another house, I would get Pete to represent me again.

My husband and I have known Pete for a while. He is very nice to work with. We found a property that was of interest and we asked Pete to represent us. He was very helpful and knowledgeable. He was available when we had questions. Our deal went through smoothly and on schedule. We have been very happy with our purchase and feel we were excellently represented by Pete. We would highly recommend Pete. He would be an excellent agent for your real estate transaction.

Bought a home in 2013 in CA 95062.
I have bought and sold primary residences prior to working with Pete on the purchase of a home in Santa Cruz, CA. I am not an expert but have worked with and interviewed several agents along the way, and from the first time I spoke with Pete on the phone I knew he would be my Santa Cruz agent. In the pursuit of multi-family income property, Pete has helped me understand and navigate complicated offers. The process continues, but in the meantime Pete helped land a wonderful little cottage home for me, wife and baby near Seabright beaches. Being that I am new to the area, Pete was and continues to be an excellent resource for referrals to reputable local contractors of all trades. This is especially important during the inspection process, he not only is able to draw on his past experience as a contractor, but can quickly get specialists onsite to advise. If you are looking for someone honest, patient, timely with the follow-up, and most importantly, able to close a deal quickly and ethically, give Pete a call.

From the minute that we met Pete, we could tell that he wasn't "just" a realtor. He became involved in every aspect of our transactions, giving us advice when needed and knowing intuitively what we were going to miss. He understands that buying and selling homes involves so much more then the financial part. He so very patiently held our hands - and continues to - before, during, and after our sales went through. It is a rare person who can be such a professional and a friend at the same time. He let us make decisions that we were comfortable with, always fairly offering up the pros and cons of each. I highly recommend Pete Cullen.

We could not have asked for a better agent to work with. Pete took time to understand our preferences and needs. Every house he suggested came closer and closer to what we were seeking until he found the perfect one. We came to trust his judgement, which saved us time and trouble. We would, and have, recommended him to friends who are looking for a home to buy.

user2114004

Pete is a terrific realtor. He really listens to what you want as both a buyer and a seller and his agenda is to make you happy. I've recommended him to many friends (who he has helped find their first homes) and will continue to do so.

Bought a Single Family home in 2004 in Santa Cruz, CA.
Pete was our realtor for selling our house in Aptos, CA. In a very tough economic real estate market Pete kept the process moving forward through every road block we came against. He showed the home over a 10 month span and never lost sight of our goals and hopeful wishes. He found the perfect buyer and was able to secure the best deal for our family. He's very patient, knowledgeable and trustworthy with great positive energy. I will wholeheartedly recommend Pete to anyone I know for his real estate expertise.

Jefrey Gunion

Sold a home in 2010 in CA 95003.
My wife and I were lucky enough to work with Pete in 2011 when we bought our first home. Pete walked us through the process before we went out so we were aware of what to expect. He located numerous possible homes for us and helped us narrow our focus to what was most important for our family. His expertise helped us tremendously throughout the entire experience. We never once felt that Pete didn't value us as clients and make us his top priority. He responded quickly to all our questions and concerns and took fantastic care of us. Because of the overwhelmingly positive experience we had with Pete Cullen we have not hesitated in recommending him to anyone we meet that is looking to buy or sell a home. His character and integrity is well earned in a business where not everyone has your best interests in mind.
