Bought a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $275K in Lake Mary, FL.

It was over a year ago that my wife and I first met Pete. He was listing a home we went to see and did not have a realtor working for us at the time. We were new to the area with two small children so really had limited time and knowledge of the area. We were so impressed right from the start with Pete's patience with us even though we had no idea where we wanted to live or beyond good schools what we were looking for in a house. The fact is neither he nor us could have imagined what lay ahead over the next year. We looked at over 50 homes in at least 6 different school zones, put offers on 12 and went under contract with 4 of them. Finally after losing out on all for one reason or another we landed on our dream home in Lk Mary. It was Pete's personality and persistence with the sellers agent that got us in the door on yet another extremely competitive situation. He was able to negotiate and secure the contract for us even as additional offers were coming in. We can not even begin to think where we would be today if Pete had not stuck with us through this agonizing process for us. He is with out question the most professional, courteous, persistent and patient business person we have ever had the pleasure to work with. Thank You Pete!!!! We love our new home and owe it all to you!!!! The Martin family now of Lk Mary!

Sold a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $150K in Apopka, FL.

When my husband and I separated, I needed to sell my home but owed more than it was worth. As a short sale specialist, Peter helped me sell my home quickly by being there every step of the way and staying on top of everything. He guided me through the short sale process and made the entire process painless and uncomplicated. I would definitely recommend him to anyone looking to sell their home in today's market.

Sold a home in 2012 in Plymouth, Apopka, FL 32712.

My wife and I were in a tough situation with a house that was underwater that we needed to sell and a child about to start college which left us with minimal cash to use to get away from the house. Mr. Yates used some of his contacts and formulated a plan which allowed us to sell our house with minimal out of pocket expense and he handled all of the details which made the entire process painless for us. I would strongly reccomend Peter Yates to anyone that is looking to buy or sell a house.

Bought a Townhouse home in 2012 for approximately $100K in Sanford, FL.

Pete is a highly knowledgeable Realtor who listens and understands what his clients are asking. Throughout my home search, which had to meet certain particular requirements, Pete was very attentive and understanding. I would certainly recommend him to any of my friends, and will be looking forward to working with him in the future whenever I decide to sell my current home or when I'm looking to buy another.

Sold a Single Family home in 2008 in Deltona, FL.

When our mother died, the house empty, we did not know how to begin to ready her house for selling. We remembered how helpful the realtor was when newly divorced I had to relocate. Peter Yates was called to take a look at our problem. He was ready and anxious to help us. He had the roof checked, sure enough, a section needed replaced. He suggested we have the roof pressured cleaned, which we did. He looked around the yard and told us which trees and bushes needed to be cut back. A walk through the house ended with a list of items to be dealt with. Things on his list included painting the dining, kitchen and living rooms. Ripping up old carpet, replacing an outside door, and removing all old drapes. Per his suggestion we removed a dysfunctional refrigerator. We were out of town for two months but he still worked with a buyer faxing and refaxing papers to us. Continually keeping in touch with us. When evidently it became too much for the buyers realtor she gave up. But, thank goodness, Mr Yates stayed working for us and got the house sold within four months. Thank you for standing by us, Mr. Yates.

Bought a Single Family home in 2007 for approximately $225K in Deltona, FL.

Mr. Yates is always a perfect mix of friendly and professional, and he accomplished the job done in no time, including all the little details.

The seller was difficult and somewhat disagreeable during negotiations, and Peter was tactfully able to ensure that both sides reached a quick and amicable agreement. Without him, both parties probably would have thrown their hands up and walked away. He knew just what to say to keep things rolling.

Sold a Single Family home in 2008 in Deltona, FL.

Peter worked with us on two houses, one that we sold and one that we bought. He’s refreshingly easy to work with and very accommodating.

With the house that we were selling, it required a lot of work both inside and outside to make it presentable. Peter was very helpful and knowledgeable with the details of fixing it up. His advice was indispensable in turning the property from an eyesore to a desirable home, and he was very good at pinpointing the strengths of the house and finding buyers who were searching for those specific attributes. That was a key factor in locating buyers that were motivated and serious.

Once we had a buyer, Peter stayed with us the whole way, going the extra mile to make sure that all the paperwork went through, including dealing with the home inspector.
