Bought a home in 2013.
If you are buying a property in LA or Palms Springs call Peter Lavin - no one knows the market as well, and no one can negotiate as strongly on your behalf - My friends and I have bought property through Peter for 25 years. I trusted him this year to buy a beautiful house in palm springs on my behalf and when we saw it, it was even better than we could have possibly hoped for. These are the guys !!!

Bought a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $675K in Atwater Village, Los Angeles, CA.
Peter Lavin of the Beachwood Team was (is) an amazing agent. Always personable, always professional, always responsive and available.

I was an easy candidate for a house - my finances were in order, and I knew what I wanted, but flexible enough knowing the limitations of my finances. Peter intimately understood my needs, and worked within those limitations, but gently nudged me one way or the other when he knew that the situation required it.

Even with the renewed energy and pace of the LA real estate market, Peter was pleasantly aggressive and eternally positive in the negotiation process. But he earned his commission with this particular deal due to all of the unforeseen twists and turns of the complicated, and at some times, unpleasant, process. Even when the deal looked like it wasn't going to go through, Peter stayed in the game, knew when to play hardball, and effortlessly took the necessary steps to get it successfully closed.

Peter is a straight shooter, no BS. He's ethical. He knows his market. He's also got a great sense of quick humor, which helped calm my occasional fears, as well as soften the rough edges of the parties on the other side of the deal!

Thanks Peter!!!

Bought a Condo home in 2012 for approximately $25K in North Hollywood, North Hollywood, CA.
Alastair is a genuine person and a man of integrity. I was fortunate enough to work with him on the purchase of my first home. He was there to guide me each step of the way and help me make the right decisions. He understood my needs and limitations and was genuinely concerned that I ended up with the best house for me, steering me clear from the wrong, sometimes more expensive, sometimes downright lemon properties. I'm really happy with the home I ended up buying. He was knowledgeable, honest, patient, responsive, and always willing to put my interests first. He was also very quick to respond to emails and all phone messages, but for the most part was just available over the phone which helped us to act quick in our search and later on to solve problems in closing. During the closing process, there were some unfortunate complications caused by the seller's side which caused stress; however, everything worked out in the end. Alastair went far and beyond and sometimes over the fence to help me get my home :) I'm inviting him to the housewarming once I'm done with the renovations!

Bought a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $225K in Cathedral City, CA.
As a first time home buyer, I was recommended to Peter Lavin. Peter was extremely helpful in making our home buying experience painless! He negotiated a great rate for us, walked me through the entire process and cheerfully answered any questions I had, promptly! If you are in the market for a home in Southern California, and would love a seasoned professional, then Peter Lavin is for you. Rob D

Peter is very professional, understands the market well, knows how to effectively promote a property and is always responsive. I'd use him again and would certainly recommend him to others as well.

Sold a Single Family home in 2011 for approximately $850K in Hollywood Hills, Los Angeles, CA.
Due to appalling market trends my home was a very difficult sell. In the process of finally getting it sold I witnessed Mr. Lavin exercise a continually varied set of strong communication, negotiation, and marketing skills unflaggingly on my behalf. I was absent from the area over the time that my home was being marketed, and Mr. Lavin also assumed the responsibility of maintaining a strong presence and campaign irrespective of my ability to oversee his conduct in any way. He remained committed to the process even as it adversely impacted his own commission, and was, in the whole, my trusted liaison throughout. He is a kind and concerned man who understands the LA market. He also seems to me empathetic to each individual sellers specific needs. I would recommend his firm wholeheartedly to anyone.

Bought a Condo home in 2011 for approximately $775K in West Hollywood, CA.
Peter is an exceptional real estate agent. He has extensive knowledge of the Los Angeles real estate market, and he is an excellent guide through the process of purchasing property -- which is what I would expect from a gifted agent. However, Peter is more than just an excellent resource for market knowledge. Peter is honest and straightforward, and is unafraid to express his opinions (based on many years of experience) concerning certain properties. That is invaluable when you are looking for a home in a market like Los Angeles'. In addition, Peter has a great personality; the time we spent together was more fun than work, and that means a great deal when navigating the stressful (and often frustrating) process of purchasing a home. I recommend Peter without reservation.

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!!

Bought a Single Family home in 2010 for approximately $150K in Cathedral City, CA.
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.
