Sold a Single Family home in 2008 for approximately $800K in Sherman Oaks, Van Nuys, CA.
Peter assisted me with the sale of my home in a terrible market and with his marketing/multiple open houses we sold in a record time. Less than 60 days on the market and got very close to asking price. His cheerfull attitude and professionalism with negotiating price made the difference. He is very reliable and does what he says he is going to do. A real gent!!

Peter Lavin helped me buy my first house, and walked me through every step of the process.
Peter really went above and beyond for me - my budget was tiny, and yet he helped me find exactly what I was looking for, and I never felt I was getting any less attention than million-dollar clients. As just one example, he drove for hours to be personally present for the inspections, and explained every finding to me in detail.
Peter was recommended to me by a friend, and I've since recommended him to others, which I think is the best indication of how pleasant and professional he is to work with.

I have known Peter for about ten years and he has been an incredible realtor. I am in the business of flipping homes and I can honestly say that Peter's intuition, hard work and business savvy has made me the success that I am. People love to do business with him and he always gets the deal done even when the odds are against him or the competition is fierce. I can't recommend him enough.
Peter is exceptional! He did such a great job helping us find and buy the right house. He really goes above and beyond for his clients during the process and afterwards. Many times he got us in first to see new listings. When it came time to make the offer, he handled everything quickly and professionally, in the final case, navigating a very difficult short sale situation to close. Not only is he a great broker and advocate but he is a truly nice person who is a pleasure with whom to work. I have already recommended him to my friends and will continue to do so!

The five star ratings in every category are DESERVED. I don't rate highly and I don't rate thoughtlessly as a rule. Peter went above and beyond the call of duty in managing and handling the sale of our house. We had an unusually difficult sale process with a few expected, and several unexpected, problems, and Peter managed the lengthy and at times painful affair with skill, dexterity, and a great deal of care and compassion. His advice on key issues, though at times I did not want to take it, turned out to be correct in the end every time. He was always available, very thorough, and took exceptional care of us and the property, from the moment we started together up to and past the point where the property was actually sold. Peter is an excellent agent: technically skilled, extremely personable, honest, energetic, capable, and hopelessly good.

Peter came highly recommended by an acquaintance that has had many real estate projects with him. Since I wasn't too familiar with the area and knew that location was a crucial factor, I needed someone extremely knowledgeable in both the Palm Springs and LA markets. Peter Lavin exceeded expectations. He is knowledgeable, articulate, strategic, timely and, most importantly, he followed through on all of his actions items. All stages of my home purchase were executed with the greatest level of skill and care. He was also 100% focused on my needs and attention, which is refreshing in a time when multi-tasking is the norm. So, if you are looking for all of the above, I recommend you call Mr. Lavin immediately.

Peter is extremely detailed oriented and his dogged determination helps close even the toughest of deals. He is extremely polite yet persistent in getting the first showings and his follow-through is top notch. Peter's thorough market knowledge is invaluable during the offer and negotiation process (market comps) and his calm demeanor helps soften and close even rough deal points. Overall his easy going yet professional attitude is a pleasant surprise amidst LA cutthroat real estate agents.

Peter was exactly what I was looking for in a real estate agent. I have used other agents in the past and Peter far exceeded them. He was always available, followed up quickly and appropriately on any inquiries, and had an enormous amount of knowledge about the market and neighborhoods.
He is professional, dedicated, and fun to work with. He helped me get a great property that had multiple offers and was great during the escrow process.

Peter Lavin did an excellent job in representing us for our home purchase! We had a unique set of criteria and a tight price range. Peter managed to find just the right house and made the whole process painless. This was our 13th property purchase in 25 years and I am also a realtor in another state but Peter STILL brought a unique perspective and enthusiasm to the transaction. I would not hesitate to use Peter for our next purchase or sale!
