Pete is a real estate magician! With a whirlwind decision we went from idly looking at out of state properties to suddenly needing to sell our West LA home in a hurry. Pete set up a home estimate, a consultation with a home staging expert, photography, videography, and virtual tour capture within days of contact. He made sure we could get maximum impact within our set timeframe and with minimal preparation cost. We were show-ready and listed in a week and a half. Private showings went smoothly and were grouped together to make sure we weren’t too inconvenienced when we

Pete Castro helped me immensely with every step on the path to selling my home. From an extensive list of stager, painter and tradesmen recommendations to up-to-date knowledge of neighborhoods, comps and pricing to an absolutely boundless wellspring of energy, enthusiasm and professionalism, he was always there for us, ready with an answer or advice or a recommendation. Pete helped me buy my first home nearly twenty years ago and he helped me buy my new home two weeks ago. He also helped me sell that first home quickly at nearly 0k over asking. I wouldn’t trust anyone else with

Maile was absolutely perfect from beginning to end as our agent for buying our home. She was always on our side and it never felt like she was just trying to close a deal. We can not recommend her enough.

We have been in contact with Pete for many years until we were finally ready to sell our home. He always kept us up to date on the market situation without pressuring us to make the move to sell. When we decided it was the right time in January, he has been amazing from the start with recommending what upgrades are needed as well as referred us to the right staging company. Then the unexpected happened with COVID-19, but with his amazing knowledge and skills, Pete assisted us selling our home at the highest value we were able to get

I can't say enough positive things about my experience with Pete. He is extremely knowledgeable about the LA market and in how to market to/attract qualified buyers. He made the whole process from start to finish effortless. I was more than comfortable with the listing price and even more so with the final outcome. He goes above and beyond when it comes to not only giving guidance on how to make your property show better, but down to recommending contractors/service providers for prepping your home for sale and even facilitating your move. He and his team were always very responsive

Pete is a true pro and a pleasure to work with. He has a wealth of knowledge and experience. I listed my house with Pete right as the COVID pandemic really hit LA and Pete was able to navigate the entire process calmly and he ensured that all parties involved were safe and well informed. Highly recommend.

My brother and I are so grateful and happy that we chose Pete Castro to sell our parents’ house. I had never sold a home before and didn’t know what to expect. From the first day we met him, Pete was friendly, helpful and accessible. He skillfully guided us through the entire listing, selling and escrow process with his knowledge of the area and the market, wide experience in the field and network of experts to help with every aspect of the home renovation, marketing, and sale. Neither of us lives near the house, but Pete made the process of

I’m writing this review to give the highest possible recommendation to Pete Castro. After I inherited a tired, mid-century house, he worked with us on each step of the sales process: Repairs, improvements, listing, documents, and so on. We found Pete delightful to work with, conscientious, and detail-oriented. He also has an incredible network of service providers who can help with anything from fabricating heater grills to improving the landscaping. And best of all, we got an outstanding price! Pete is friendly, professional, and knowledgeable. I’d work with him again for sure.

We selected Pete Castro to help us sell a rental property. The property was difficult to sell but Pete persevered and helped us present the house in the best possible way. Pete has resources to recommend any kind of repair or work that is reliable and reasonable. He created a great video that provided a panoramic view of the property and the interior. He listened to our concerns and always had great ideas. Pete was very professional dealing with our buyer who wanted a 1031 exchange. His expertise helped deal with unusual problems encountered with the sale and bring it

Pete knows the Westside real estate market very well and had previously handled a few transactions in our condominium complex in the past. So when it was time for us to sell, we knew we wanted to work with someone who was familiar with our area and our complex. Pete has a wonderful team, and they were responsive and helpful throughout the experience. He personally created excellent marketing materials, with professional photography and dynamic websites. His Internet marketing reach was phenomenal and our condo was always in the top three listings on Zillow in our zip code. Thousands of people
