Not only was Lawrence successful in negotiating the sale of our property, he was honest and professional, and his advice was invaluable.
The whole process was therefore more relaxing and less stressful than we anticipated.
We have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Lawrence as an extremely conscientious and enthusiastic agent who we believe would give satisfaction to anyone wishing to sell a property.
Our experience with Lawrence Peeters has been a really rewarding one.
His expertise in selling real estate is really outstanding, going the extra mile in every aspect of his job.
He did a fantastic job on the marketing of our house; the photos were of great interest to prospective buyers, and we were very happy with the end result.
We would recommend Lawrence to our family and friends and anyone who wants to sell or buy a home and get the same great results.
I recently was fortunate to engage Lawrence Peeters as my Estate Agent when I was preparing for sale in Dunedin.
An added complication was that I live in Christchurch and so everything had to be done by 'remote control'.
It was here that Lawrence excelled in his service.
All the property details were taken care of, advertising was first class (the first advertising of the house in the 'inhouse' magazine was excellent and generated lots of interest from the word go) and his advice on preparation of the property was spot on.
It can be quite common to hear 'horror stories' of house sales which go horribly wrong and this would be mainly attributable to the quality of the advice received.
I am glad to say that in my case, the whole selling experience was a very good one and this was due to the quality of the Estate Agent involved.
I would certainly recommend Lawrence Peeters as an Estate Agent to any potential seller (or buyer) and would have no hesitation in contacting him again for repeat business.
We had the pleasure of purchasing our new house and also selling our previous house through Lawrence at Metro Realty.
Because we did it in the wrong order it could have been the most stressful time in our lives but due to Lawrence’s invaluable advice it couldn’t have been easier. We chose Lawrence to sell our house after purchasing our new house because we really liked the way he conducted himself with true professionalism, honesty and integrity.
We found him at the top of his game knowing exactly what the market demanded and the suggestions and advice he gave us as to how to present our house resulted in us selling it incredibly quickly. He far exceeded our expectations on what he delivered and was always available to us if we needed help or to answer any questions. We found him to be an exceptionally hard worker so that we could achieve all of our dreams and we couldn’t be happier.
Because of everything we have stated above I cannot recommend him highly enough. Our interactions did not end after the sale – his after care service is second to none, however I’m not sure this is part of the job. We no longer see him as a real estate agent, we consider him our friend.
We met Lawrence about 10 years prior to selling our house. Lawrence sent us market update information regularly, so it was not difficult, even though there were a multitude of agents interested in selling our property, to give him a ring. We were further encouraged by his straight comments, passion and enthusiasm.
While we were a little sceptical about marketing strategies etc, we were soon convinced on receiving countless positive comments from friends and family on the quality of the photography and scripts, and further excited by the number of enquiries made through him prior to our first open home. We soon realised that there are subtle differences in marketing strategies and plans; the proof of this being evident on the high numbers of potential buyers coming through our house on not only the first open day, but also on the subsequent days during the first week.
Lawrence was very easy to work with, very personable always keeping us totally up to date with all developments in an honest and encouraging tone.
We are very thankful we met as the house sold in one week with a lot of excellent offers and for a good market price. We have no hesitation in recommending Lawrence, and have already done so on many occasions, to anyone who requires a very competent, trust worthy, dedicated and enthusiastic salesperson who possesses a vibrant passion which he brings to his work. We sincerely thank you Lawrence.
We have used Lawrence a couple of times previously to sell properties and were very happy to seek his revives this time around.
We have always found him to be a straight shooter and a very calming influence in what can be a fraught process.
He is always working hard for you too - indeed within three weeks of marketing he had secured us five offers, with the successful one being at the top of our price range.
Having used several agents over the years we can definitely recommend Lawrence as the best we’ve dealt with... thanks Lawrence!
Lawrence continually demonstrates his exceptional professional capabilities to maximum effect.
Due to his superior marketing skills and superb people skills, our home sold quickly ‘under the hammer’ for a price we were absolutely delighted with.
Lawrence handles all negotiations with scrupulous honesty and the utmost professionalism.
We highly recommend Lawrence Peeters, whether you are buying or selling your home.
In preparation to sell we canvassed 4 recognised agents in addition to Lawrence.
From the start we identified marketing and negotiation skills as critical attributes in the agent we would employ.
We were left in no doubt that Lawrence could provide the necessary “X factor”.
From the start of the process Lawrence was very focused on the key aspects of market exposure, market feedback and ultimately creating a competitive situation amongst prospective purchasers.
Lawrence was able to negotiate a sale on unconditional terms at a sum at the top end 2 days after the property was passed in at auction.
Make no mistake, this was a fantastic result, and we would have no hesitation in recommending Lawrence to prospective vendors.
We were so pleased with Lawrence’s energetic skills in selling our home that we had no hesitation in also entrusting him with the sale of our investment property – and this also proved to be the right decision!
If you want the services of a real estate agent who is knowledgeable, pleasant, courteous, and a skillful negotiator, then Lawrence Peeters is your man!
After an unsuccessful experience with another real estate company we both keep congratulating ourselves for selecting Lawrence as our agent.
Lawrence made the process so easy and absolutely wowed us with his marketing expertise and negotiating skills.
One and a half weeks and top dollar – what more could we have asked for.
Thank you for the efficient and courteous manner with which you so assuredly sold our home.
I have used many fine agents for my property dealings over the past twenty five years and I consider you one of my best associations.
Before listing our lifestyle property my husband and I attended at least 20 open homes searching for the right agent.
Lawrence clearly stood out with his energy, stamina and professionalism.
The most valuable point of difference lay with Lawrence’s exceptional customer service, and his incredibly high standard of negotiation skills.
Notwithstanding that we lived out of town, Lawrence would travel to see us any time day or night.
The end result achieved by Lawrence through his superior negotiation skills well exceeded our expectations.
Lawrence continued the customer service relationship by providing valuable input into the purchase of our next home, albeit being through another agency; such was his level of dedication and commitment.
The bottom line is that there are simply not enough adjectives to describe how thrilled we were to find Lawrence.
We have since referred him to close colleagues and friends, all of whom have experienced the same unequivocally high standards. Without hesitation, we would engage Lawrence again.
We have always been impressed by the superior marketing capability of Metro Realty. The advertising both online and in the ODT are consistently of a very high standard, however we really love the “inhouse” magazine. It was wonderful to see our own home in it.
At our first meeting with Lawrence an agreed marketing plan was devised which he then executed with precision. The marketing of our home was well above our expectations and the photography outstanding. This resulted in a competitive situation amongst the interested parties and a favourable outcome for us.
Due to the extremely thorough and professional service by Lawrence, the selling of our home was a hassle free experience.
We were highly impressed with his attention to detail, clear and concise communication and knowledge of the market.
This straight up no nonsense approach we believe made it an easy process for all parties involved.
We have and will continue to enthusiatically recommend Lawrence to anyone who is selling (or buying) a home here in Dunedin.
A genuine “people” person, Lawrence would be our first choice of agent every time.
On behalf of myself and Keri, I would like to thank Lawrence for doing a great job in selling our 3 properties in Andersons Bay.
Lawrence at all times kept us informed of the situation and how we could get the best prices for the houses.
He has a great professional manner and puts you to ease at times that can be stressful. His negotiation skills are outstanding, achieving prices that were above the ones we aimed for and his knowledge of the market is one of his many strengths.
We would have no hesitation choosing Lawrence Peeters and Metro in the future, we recommend anyone selling their house for the best price - Lawrence Peeters is your man.
After trying unsuccessfully to sell my property through another agent, Lawrence was highly recommended to me by a friend.
His direct no fuss approach was refreshing after my previous disappointing experience.
Fresh marketing - stunning photography - and sold after only 1 week on the market! And for $60,000 more than my last best offer.
Great advice, fantastic service. A highly skilled professional.
On behalf of Beverley and myself we would like to express our sincere thanks and appreciation to Lawrence for his highly professional approach to marketing our property.
Not only did he give us first class advice on selling our house, he inspected and advised us on the purchase of our townhouse.
Our property was sold within two weeks which allowed us to purchase the townhouse that we had set our hearts on.
We would have no hesitation in recommending Lawrence and the team at Metro to anybody selling or buying property.
Lawrence conducts his business in a highly professional manner and is an agent who really does have his Vendor’s best interests at heart. He goes the extra mile for his clients; and is not ‘interested in just the sale’ – but very much focuses on achieving the best possible outcome for is clients; even in the face of adversity.
The presentation of Lawrence’s marketing combined with his wide range of marketing strategies are the best we have seen – having sold and bought 8 properties in our time as property owners.
When the time came to place my parent’s house on the market, we wondered what would be the best way to approach the sale given the current financial climate. Lawrence Peeters was highly recommended to us, so we contacted him, and his professional marketing plan proved a winner for the family.
Lawrence, with his very confident and approachable manner, alongside his genuine passion and keen spirit, ensured the parties involved obtained a positive outcome. We followed his recommendations, one of which included a professional photographer, and were very impressed with the superb photos.
The house had its first open home and an offer emerged from this to a successful sale. As a family we were impressed with his professional marketing plan and knowledge of the current market. During the sales process Lawrence kept us fully informed by visits, phone calls or text messages. His manner was very professional throughout the sales process.
At all stages we knew exactly what was happening. In finishing, the experience for us as a family was that Lawrence was confident in his plan for the sale of the house and kept us fully informed throughout the whole process, so made it a very positive experience. It was great to have you look after the sale of my Mum and Dad’s home. A big thank you from all our family.
We chose Lawrence to act as our real estate agent to sell our home, as we were impressed by his professionalism when we originally bought it.
Lawrence laid out a sales and marketing plan designed to sell our house in a difficult market. We followed this plan and Lawrence had three offers in front of us after only 3 weeks, our house was sold, at a price that we were happy with.
Lawrence took care of every step of the process, and went the extra mile for a successful outcome. Our advice to anyone wishing to sell their home is to choose Lawrence Peeters as their real estate agent. Listen to Lawrence, you won’t be disappointed.
Lawrence impressed me from the outset as someone who knows his job inside out and carries it out smoothly and efficiently.
Selling my house with Lawrence was fast - three days from the first open home - and non-traumatic.
Lawrence is a personable and respectful man, and I almost found it fun to sell my home in his capable hands!
He puts energy and thoroughness into his work. I appreciated Lawrence’s direct manner too.
We were fortunate enough to use Lawrence Peeters as our real estate agent for our newly built house in Dunedin.
We have bought and sold houses before and found Lawrence to be the most pleasurable agent we have dealt with. We found him to be incredibly professional, reliable, hard working, likable, realistic, honest and a great negotiator.
Lawrence is one of those people who has huge string of achievements and work experiences behind him, which meant there would undoubtedly be a commonality between himself and his clients, as he has the ability to relate and connect with people on a personal level. We found Lawrence great to work with because unlike most real estate agents, Lawrence was completely honest with us.
He easily connected, discussed, and relayed information to us, working hard throughout the process, giving us valuable information about how to achieve the best open home success, and staying up late on negotiation night to bring us the best deal from our buyer.
We would recommend using Lawrence as your agent for his excellent negotiating skills, and for someone you could trust to sell your house quickly and efficiently. He had ours sold within 17 days of it being on the market!
In 2008 we spent a year house-hunting for a large family home, when we met Lawrence, who did sell us our current home.
Lawrence had a presence which gave us confidence with all aspects of the purchase. Questions we asked were all answered in a very satisfactory way, and as our house was part of a Body Corporate there were many such questions.
Lawrence had done his research and we were reassured. Purchase complete, we then asked Lawrence to sell our own property, and with Lawrence’s advice how to best present it for sale, it was sold quickly with a very positive result for us. Wait, there is more.
In October 2011 we had the need to sell my family home having lost my Dad, and Mum going into care. We were relieved to know that Lawrence would look after us again. We have so appreciated Lawrence’s conscientious, supportive and courteous approach. A truly fantastic sale, and the short time on the market was a huge relief for us.
Lawrence, in a nutshell, has the “X factor” and reaps the rewards for his good preparation, as do we.
Lawrence provided us with good advice and an excellent professional service tailored to our circumstances.
He went above and beyond what we expected of an agent and we would strongly recommend him.
I met Lawrence approximately three years ago when buying a house in Dunedin. At the time he made an excellent impression with his professionalism and with the personal touches he employed, such as coffee coupons and movie nights. Since that time, my partner and I have twice put our house in Dunedin on the market. As we were out of town by then, Lawrence went the extra mile and mowed lawns, washed windows and even vacuumed - all without being asked. He bought a mat for the front door on one occasion and a beautiful flower arrangement in a glass bowl on another.
Lawrence becomes a friend over time, as he instils trust and confidence in those who meet him. I would have no hesitancy, whatsoever, in recommending him to anyone who needs to sell or purchase a house.
We engaged Lawrence to sell our home in January 2014. As the process unfolded it was clear that Lawrence had a very clear idea of what he wished to achieve at each stage, and he was good at communicating to us what we could do to assist the sale.
We were pleased to see that when the time came for the most interesting phase of the deal he was clear what he had to do to achieve the best result. Importantly he acted quickly and achieved the preferred result, rather than taking the easy route which would have sold the house at a lesser return.
We are happy to recommend Lawrence in this market.
Lawrence has kept in touch with us for about the last 8 years and has been sending us market information and invitations to social evenings which we have attended. We have found Lawrence very professional and successful, which is why we chose him as our estate agent.
We have been very pleased with the sale of our house. The marketing, photography and advice was outstanding.
His customer service and professionalism was beyond our expectations.
He definitely went the extra mile helping us out as we had relocated out of town.
We would not hesitate using Lawrence again.
We have recommended Lawrence to some of our close friends and family.
I wanted to share how much I appreciate the efforts of Lawrence Peeters in selling our house in Dunedin.
Lawrence has a very friendly manner and professional approach. The way he marketed the property with research and historical details went hand in hand with the character of the house. Living away from Dunedin it was comforting to have a person of Lawrence’s ability looking after the property and he kept us informed of every move in relation to the house.
Lawrence put a lot of personal effort into looking after the property as well as going the extra mile on many occasions.
I would thoroughly recommend Lawrence to anyone interested in buying or selling property in the Dunedin area.
Many thanks Lawrence.
Lawrence Peeters has been our real estate agent during the process of selling our house.
He has acquitted himself well, and performed his duties above and beyond expectation.
We thank him for his help and advice.
When the time came to place our home on the market we had no hesitation in contacting Lawrence Peeters.
We were in a position where we had already relocated out of town but we knew Lawrence would keep us up to date and informed in our absence. That is exactly what he did. Lawrence didn’t muck about and got on with the job.
He has your best interests at the forefront. He went over and beyond our expectations, even to the extent of mowing our lawns!
His straight forward approach and professionalism make him an outstanding agent.
We are confident in recommending Lawrence as your next agent.
I was nervous about putting my home on the market and it was fantastic to have Lawrence co-ordinating everything.
Lawrence’s experience and advice was invaluable.
The presentation, the photography and the marketing was excellent - after only one open home Lawrence returned that evening with three offers and my property was sold!
I will definitely use Lawrence again - he took the stress out of selling in a challenging market.
We have dealt with Lawrence on two occasions, both times with 100% results.
The first time with my late Mum’s ownership flat in St Kilda, and then five years later with our own property in Green Island.
We found Lawrence to be very helpful, honest and willing to deal with professionally.
We would have no hesitation in recommending Lawrence to any future sellers or buyers, as we have already done.
