Bought a home in 2013 in Spivey, Citrus Park, FL 33625.

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.

Bought a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $375K in Tampa, FL.

My wife and I met Peter at an open house he was hosting, and were immediately impressed by his kindness and honesty. A few months later, we decided to use Peter as our Buyer's Agent. Throughout the process, he showed us dozens of houses in a number of different areas. His knowledge, patience, and responsiveness always made us feel comfortable during our search. If you looking for an agent who is kind, responsive, knowledgeable, and will always tell you the truth, then by all means, contact Peter.

Sold a home in 2009 in Curlew, Palm Harbor, FL 34684.

Peter is wonderful to do business with. He has assisted my husband and me with two transactions over the past 3 years. We used Peter's service for both buying and selling. I can’t imagine using anyone else. I will also continue to refer him because I am confident he will take care of business.

That was the best service we have ever received. Very professional and highly skilled. Great advice based on realistic analysis, not the wishful thinking. Thorough understanding of local markets and trends.

Bought a Condo home in 2011 for approximately $125K in Downtown, Tampa, FL.

As a foreign buyer Peter helped me close two short sales at a great price in the metro Tampa area and this in a very fast time frame. I wouldn't hesitate to call upon Peter in the future for any real estate transaction!! He is honest and trustworthy and looks out for the best outcome for his clients.

Sold a Single Family home in 2010 for approximately $300K in Tampa, FL.

To whom it may concern,

Peter did an excellent job marketing the sale of my house... We actually had an offer one day prior to it being officially listed! He has an easy going way with people (ie no high pressure sales tactics) that really help people make the right decision while not scarring them away.

Even when we had an offer, he (unlike other real estate agents, who statistically have their homes on the market much longer than non realtors do) did not pressure me to take it. Rather he thought it was too low and recommended we hold out for fair market value which speaks directly to his integrity. I highly recommend him as your real estate agent.

sincerely, Drew D.
