“Peter Locke of Century 21 Redwood Realty knocked it out of the park for our family!! Peter understood our needs and budget and was tireless in working with us. He drove outside the DC Metro region to view properties with us. He has an exceptional understanding of the market, top-rate customer service and is a highly skilled negotiator. Peter was able to navigate a split closing in and out-of-area market that went seamlessly. Among all of the lenders, agents and other professionals involved in the transaction he was the most thorough and led the way. I enthusiastically recommend Peter Locke if you are looking to buy or sell a home!!”
Tom Kiernan (Buyer)
“I have completed two land transactions with Peter and have been very satisfied with all his work. He stays on top of all the details, provides quick responses back, whick for me is key when buying a property. Not knowing what is going on can be very nerve racking and peter took care f ever detail from start to finish. I would highly recommend peter to all my friends and if he did half the job he did for me i know they would be happy. ”
Jay Metzler (Buyer)
“Peter was absolutely great. He went far about what he had to do - he shoveled snow from the walk way, help moving items and was available at all hours of the day. Best experience we have ever had from all other sales. Peter is by far the best agent we have had.”
Greg Walsh of Fairfax (Seller)
“Peter Locke has been known to the family for a long time. He did an excellent job managing the process of selling our Townhouse. He was able to successfully navigate the sale in a tenancy arrangement that benefited all parties. I would use Peter's services again and highly recommend him to others.”
Brook and Kimberly Teeter (Seller)
“I interviewed four brokers. We ultimately decided to go with Peter for his reputation in our local neighborhood and his ability to lead a team of contractors to make the necessary fixes to our home before we put it on the market. I didn't always agree at first with some of his recommendations for upgrades, but ultimately we followed his advice and I'm glad we did. We didn't make it easy on Peter ... but he responded quickly and politely to all our inquiries. I can't ask for more. Perhaps the best testimony I can give is that our home went on the market on a Thursday. We had multiple offers and accepted one four days later. ”
Gil Braun, Fairfax, VA (Seller)
“He blew us away. We felt "cared for" throughout the process. If you want to find the right house for you, contact Peter Locke.”
Chris Ruck, Burke, VA (Buyer)
“Peter showed us the apartment that we just sold back in 2015. His local knowledge and real estate expertise made calling him when we were ready to sell a no-brainer. Peter was excellent from the beginning of the process all the way to the end. Our apartment needed renovations so he helped us come up with a list of what needed to be done and assisted in helping us get quotes for the work. During the renovations he provided project management support to ensure that everything went smoothly as we now live out of state. He then walked my wife and I though the paperwork, sales strategy and marketing which included professional photography and a virtual tour due to COVID-19. The current climate created a lot of uncertainty but we relied on his local market knowledge and went ahead with our listing which ended up being the correct decision. Peter is highly responsive and has a knack for explaining complicated processes in an easy to follow fashion. We would recommend him to anyone looking to buy or sell property in the NOVA area. Thank you Peter! ”
Will & Leah - Chicago, IL (Seller)
“This is the fourth home transaction I have done with Peter's assistance and he has done an outstanding job on all of them. He is professional, makes sure he clearly understands what I want to accomplish, and then he lays out a plan to make it happen and executes flawlessly. I consider him to be one of the hardest working and finest professionals I have had the pleasure of working with. ”
Jim Davis Reston, VA (Seller)
“We had an amazing experience selling our home with Peter Locke. He always put our families needs first at every step of the process. He made sure we understood everything completely before moving forward and that we were comfortable with everything as well. Ours was a tricky situation and he handled it with kindness, respect, and professionalism. I would recommend him to anyone without reservation. ”
Betsy Rose, Fairfax (Seller)
“I have worked with more than a few realtors and Peter is “SIMPLY THE BEST”! He provided us sound recommendations on what home repairs/preps we should do in support of getting the highest dollar return. Not only did he provide sound advice but he acted as the project manager ensuring the contractor making repairs to the house met both quality and schedule requirements to ensure the house went on the market on time. The advertising and open house he put together was nothing short of fantastic and within ~24 hours we had offers on our home. We received acceleration offers of ~$20,000.00 over our asking price. At final closing we were ahead by about ~$30.000.00 you can’t beat that. I could write a book on all the great interactions we had. It was never to late at night and it didn’t matter if it was the weekend or a holiday. He ALWAYS retuned our text and phone call in less then five minute 24/7. BOTTOM LINE if your selling or buying a home Peter is the guy! Thanks so much for a great experience.”
William Brewer, SUFFOLK (Seller)
“Peter Locke was an extremely knowledgeable broker that gained our trust quickly. He applied his experience to provide us candid feedback, and developed a great working relationship. Peter understood the needs of our family and our timeline, and never wasted a minute of our time or energy on homes that didn't meet our requirements. His commitment to us was consistent all the way through the negotiations, and remained even after we moved into our home, as we continued to reach out to him for advice. I would recommend Peter Locke to any prospective home buyers, and he'll be my first call if I ever need to purchase a home again.”
Slade Smith, Fairfax (Buyer)
“Peter Locke has been terrific to work with. We've known him for a few years and have done four transactions with him (buying, selling, and renting out property). He is highly knowledgeable about the northern Virginia market and is honest with all of his opinions and valuations. He is very friendly, approachable and timely with his communications, and has made us feel at ease throughout our most recent experience of selling and purchasing a place simultaneously. Would definitely recommend to anyone thinking of buying or selling a home in this area. ”
Kan & Jeff Gianattasio (Seller)
“We knew Peter personally and felt very comfortable working with him. We were very happy with Peter's performance. Peter was always there to discuss the sale at any time of day. He guided us through a few bumps in the road and it concluded in a successful transaction. We highly recommend Peter to anyone looking for a competent client-focused realtor. You won't regret it.”
Erin and Robert Miller, Charlotte, NC (Seller)
“Peter really went above and beyond to help my wife and I sell our property. He was easy to communicate with and very responsive throughout the week and even on weekends. He kept us informed and updated on the selling and closing process and helped work around our busy schedules. I will highly recommend Peter to any friends and relatives in need of a realtor in the future. ”
Matthew Sarmiento - Arlington, VA (Seller)
“My wife and I both agree that our experience working with Peter Locke could not have been better. Throughout the process we were impressed with his work ethic, the way he made both of us feel comfortable, his professionalism, and his attention to detail. From the beginning Peter worked with us to understand our situation and what we were trying to accomplish. He then used that understanding to help us find a home that is perfect for our needs and in a price range we can afford. After finding a home we liked, Peter’s knowledge and experience were invaluable in helping us to navigate the complex world of contracts, lenders, and everything associated with buying a home. I think the best recommendation I can give Peter is this: if he wasn’t so good at what he does I would hire him. ”
Jim Davis, Oakton Virginia (Buyer)
“Peter is excellent at what he does”
David Salem (Buyer)
“Peter Locke was recommended by a friend to sell my Town of Vienna house. He met with me to talk about Pricing my house competitively with the market by looking at competitive house sales to price my house effectively and strategically. We talked at length about his services, an effective campaign to sell and most importantly how to prepare all of the necessary documentation to have an effective contract to allow me the greatest flexibility to buy a house out of state. Peter Locke worked tirelessly to stay in contact with the buyer once we entered contract to keep our transaction going as smoothly as possible. He and I spent a lot of time maximizing my ability to buy a house out of state so that I will be able to transition smoothly from Virginia to New York. I was able to buy a fantastic house in New York. Of course I recommend Peter Locke as an agent. At the end of the day I was able to get the terms I was looking for to sell and get to closing on time.”
Charles Rendleman, Town of Vienna VA (Seller)
“My wife sold her condo in Arlington and had used the USAA Mover's Advantage program and interviewed one agent prior to selecting Peter Locke. Peter was hands down the winner. He presented a clear plan and communicated exactly how he would get the property sold. He is affable and knowledgeable and is persistent. My wife got the asking price for her condo and we decided to use him to help us find a house. Finally he helped me sell the townhouse. We really appreciated the lengths he was willing to go to to help us out. Peter helped me get an inspection done on a water heater that had to be replaced on the townhouse just as I was moving out. He met the inspector there when I couldn't. He also went to Home Depot and bought some new numbers for the house since the HOA inspection indicated they were weathered. I just appreciated that he wasn't just there to collect a commission at the end of the sale but he really cared about how it affected me and my wife. He took it more personal than other agents I've met.”
Fred Olchowski, Arlington, VA (Seller)
“Lucky I ran into Peter. Excellent treatment throughout the process. Arlington is a unique market, it is best to use a broker like Peter who knows the market, the process, and has the connections to expedite the process to get what you want. Peter was patient enough to educate me on the market so when I walked into my place when it came on the market I knew it was the right one without any hesitation. Peter surpassed even my lofty expectations!”
Mike - Arlington, VA (Buyer)
