In a world of say anything to get anything, Peter Gawienczuk is a breath of fresh air. His honesty, integrity and passion for real estate are testament that some people truly do care about the quality of their work as well as the reputation and legacy they leave in their wake. Our family looked at homes for over four months as we had some very specific requirements. Peter understood this and did everything to accommodate us. Whenever we looked at a home, he came prepared with a list of comps, and other neighborhood news (this house is very nice, but behind that fence is a pretty main road. I think if you are serious, we should re-visit during rush hour). A few houses we looked at needed some work. He did not hesitate in getting estimates (multiple contractors in the case of one house) to see if the work would knock the prospective home out of our budget. He never, ever failed to return a call. email or text. Ever. And his attention to detail is impeccable. To the point where our mortgage lender called my husband and wanted to know where we found him because out of all the realtors he had worked with “this guy is the best—he never misses a call and dots every I, crosses every t”. As an example of his integrity and honesty, there was a home for which we had placed a bid. The home was over-priced, and our bid, while considered low by the seller, was very fair. When the counter came in much closer to the high number than our bid, I was very tempted to make an emotional decision and bid higher, since even the higher price of the home was within our budget. Peter sat me down and basically said “listen, I cannot let you do that. I want you to think. You don’t know what tomorrow holds, and if you purchase that house at that price, and something happens and you need to sell it next year, you will be 50K in the hole before you put the sign in the yard. Minimum 50K. If it was a couple grand, then it is maybe not such a big deal. But we are talking a lot of money. Please don’t do it.” And that is where he had me for life. I will recommend him to everyone because of his professionalism, thoroughness and attention to detail. I respect him because he is not afraid to be honest, do the right thing, negotiate and have the hard conversations.
