Pete Sabine was the Listing Agent in the recent sale of my Walnut Creek condominium. Pete was a pleasure to work with. He is a well-versed and knowledgeable Professional in Real Estate and in the Bay Area market. Pete provided me the tools and a vast number of resources from which to utilize and understand the current market conditions and variability, and to best market the sale of my home. Throughout the process and transaction, Pete provided me both a big-picture perspective and broad understanding of the issues and options, as well as guided me to making a decision which best served my needs. Pete Sabine is a Professional that you can trust, and who will get the job done.
Pete and his team exhibited the utmost professional respect and service to me as a client. In just one week after listing my property, we had multiple offers.

Hi Nick, thank you for placing your trust in me and our real estate team to find a qualified buyer for your condo over the busy holiday season. Even though the list price set the new high water mark for the condo complex, our marketing campaign resulted in 3 competing buyers with a prevailing purchase offer above the list price. Congratulations on achieving your desired goal of getting the highest possible price in a reasonable amount of time!
Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $725K in Pleasant Hill, CA.
We recently sold our Pleasant Hill home with Pete as our agent. Not living in Pleasant Hill anymore with limited ability to travel made this transaction complicated for us, but Pete proved he is the ultimate professional throughout the entire process. Furthermore, it is never easy to sell a home, regardless of what the market is doing, due to all of the uncertainties, variables, and details. Furthering this, I am a stickler for details, so have a high expectation for any agent on managing them. Pete delivered on all fronts. He simplified many aspects of this transaction for us and led us towards making the correct decisions throughout. We are extremely please and satisfied that we chose Pete as our agent, and would highly recommend him to anyone!

Hi Dan, thank you for your review of our real estate services we provide for our valued clients. Selling a home involves teamwork with your Realtor and the home owner. I enjoyed working with you to repair, update and stage your home for sale to ensure we could achieve the highest possible selling price.
Pete knows North Walnut Creek and Pleasant Hill like the back of his hand. He was raised in Pleasant Hill so is intimately aware of the territory. Our recent experience with Pete involved a vacant land purchase which was very complicated with several easements and other problems. Pete was well-versed in all of the difficulties and advantages of our land from the first meeting we had with him. I am especially impressed with his honesty and integrity. I would trust him with any transaction in the future. In fact, we have. He is helping us sell our house in Walnut Creek as well.
I highly recommend Pete to anyone selling or buying property in Contra Costa County.

Hi Cindy, thank you for your review of my local real estate expertise in the sale of your vacant Walnut Creek lot. We had a lot of issues to research and confirm before executing our strategy to sell this property. You and your family provided excellent information and disclosure to enable us to obtain the highest possible sales price. I am honored to represent your family trust and the heirs to the estate.
There are not enough stars !!! He is also very helpful in future plans with my two properties with my rental and future sale. He was like a financial planner and it all made sense and did not rush to sell, he thought about my future .

Hi Cheryl. It was an honor to represent you and Dick in the purchase of your new home and with the sale of your former Orinda home. We had a few "speedbumps" during the sale transaction, however, working together with you to explore the best strategy to resolve the matter paid off in the end. Congratulations!
Pete is an amazing agent. He took the time to get to know us, explained every step of the process, worked to minimize stress during the entire transaction and made sure that we understood every step along the way. Pete makes himself available to contact via cell phone and always responds to his emails in a timely manner. He has in depth knowledge of Contra Costa County and he knows the ins and outs of most neighborhoods. We would definitely recommend Pete to anyone looking to buy or sell a house!

Hi Jim and Jenny...it was an honor to represent you in the purchase of your Orinda home. Relocating from the mid-west to our fast paced California bay area requires a great deal of patience and flexibility along with a willingness to compete with other buyers in our current seller's market. Finding the right home and prevailing in this environment requires team work. It was a pleasure assisting you with your relocation into our community...welcome to Orinda!

Pete Sabine is the ultimate professional, with knowledge and expertise in both readying a home for sale, evaluating offers, and closing the deal. He also helped us obtain contractors for the repairs that needed completion prior to sale.
I would recommend Pete to anyone, particularly in the Pleasant Hill area that is either buying or selling a home.
