“Prior to putting our home on the market we interviewed several well respected realtors. After our first meeting with Peter and Phyllis we knew we had found the team with a great marketing plan and strategy for representing our home. Peter and Phyllis were exceptionally hands on and professional in every detail. They were very and capable negotiators, and always worked to protect our overall interests. Our goals were their first priority, not the sale. We set a new sales record in terms of price for our area and feel this is due to the effective marketing and representation offered by Peter and Phyllis. They are a great team and we are happy to recommend them to anyone looking to sell their home.” Bob and Kathleen Holmgren, Kottinger Ranch
