"Peter has helped to make what is normally a stressful time, into a much more manageable experience"
Peter Drabik has been a huge help to our family in relation to our Mom's recent sale of the family home and the purchase of her new condo. Our Mom is a senior, in her eighties and as we all know, moving can be a very stressful time, even for a younger person. Peter was invaluable in making this transition as smooth and as painless as possible. Let me begin by saying that Peter has exceeded all expectations that myself and my two siblings had in relation to the services that a real estate agent might offer. Peter has helped to make what is normally a stressful time, into a much more manageable experience. Peter started by showing our Mom a number of condos that matched her "wish" list. Early on into this condo search, a suitable property was found that my Mom was excited about. Due to Peter's expertise as a real estate agent, an offer was submitted and accepted even though there was a competing offer tendered at the same time. Our Mom was thrilled. The next task was to sell the family home. Also due once again to Peter's expertise, the home was sold in short order despite the fact that there were now 26 plus competing similar properties for sale in the neighbourhood. The tendered offer had everything we were looking for....a fast closing, a good price and no conditions. Peter continued to assist our family and went above and beyond what any of us expected of a sales agent. Peter assisted our Mom in so many ways, that it is hard to even articulate and I am sure that I have not even captured everything that he did to help. Peter drove our Mom to the lawyer appointment for the signing of the closing documents, dropped off the keys to the lawyer on closing and checked in with our Mom frequently by phone and in person. Peter even took our Mom to the condo parking garage so that she could practise negotiating her new underground parking spot prior to moving! Peter was always available to receive a phone call or text. This made all our lives easier for sure. Our Mom would tell you that Peter was a real support to her during this time. Peter's patience, kindness, caring and exemplary work ethic shone through and made the whole process seamless. I would recommend Peter to a any one that has senior parent(s) wanting to move. Peter indeed provided a full service experience. Our entire family thanks you Peter!
"...your strategy and negotiation skills maximized our return"
Just a quick note to express our sincere appreciation for all your efforts through our recent buy/sell process.

As well, you were with us at every step of purchasing our new house, providing valuable guidance throughout the unconventional & difficult inspection process. Your experience and professionalism certainly showed through! We would not have any hesitation in recommending you to any of our friends/acquaintances!

“...a steady hand throughout our selling journey”
“Peter was a steady hand throughout our selling journey. He gave us excellent guidance and helped sell our home in just 48 hours and above our asking price. Peter took the time to understand not only our financial needs, but our professional constraints as well. We can’t recommend Peter enough. He’s in tune with the broader GTA market, excellent at Marketing, and knows how to position a home for sale. He’s also a warm, confident advocate who was in our corner every step of the way and always available at a moment’s notice. ”

"Calm, professional demeanor"
Please consider choosing Peter Drabik for your next real estate transaction. We interviewed three agents before listing our home and chose Peter for his calm, professional demeanor and acute understanding of the current market conditions. Peter's staging and marketing strategies attracted numerous offers as expected but his expertise really showed when, in spite of clerical errors outside of his control, [an inaccurate first offer date was published] he was able to guide us past an initial "bully offer" and create, not one, but two separate buying frenzies that garnered significantly more than our listing price. His capacity to navigate adeptly in those critical short hours and minutes of the negotiations and his professional advice in the heat of the deal set Peter apart. We were so pleased with his ability that we chose Peter to assist in the purchase our new home. Be assured, Peter is a great asset to buyers as well as sellers.
A short note to thank you for the professionalism and efficient manner in which you dealt with the sale of our property on Bedford Park Ave, Toronto, Ontario. We were extremely pleased with the advice you gave us prior to listing the property and I feel sure that it contributed significantly in the selling of the property within a week. Clearly your advice about price and presentation were spot on and certain that in conjunction with your efforts , is why the house sold so quickly. It made us feel comfortable and confident that you got the best price for our house. After the contracts had been signed you were still helpful and available in keeping up to date with the progress of the sale.
We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend you to anybody who is contemplating selling or buying and wish you all the continued success.
On our behalf we thank you!

“Why I recommend Peter Drabik for Realtor of the Year”
In the summer of this year 2014 we found ourselves having to move my elderly Aunt from the house that she had been born in 1920. She had never been married nor had children and lived alone in a 100 year old house. I am the only close relative and POA for her affairs. The problem is that I live in Calgary, Alberta. The house is in Toronto.
Peter contacted me in August due to a referral from the ReMax office in Orillia. I had never met or spoken to Peter before this first contact. He immediately began sending information on property in the area and comparable listings. The house was run down and in dire need of some TLC. We had made no commitment to him and felt that we would have to fire sell the property.
To cut a long story, I arrived in Toronto on Sept 14/2014. Peter had already been to the house, met my aunt and was prepared with a strategy on our first meeting even though we had not committed to listing the property. We listed the property on Sept 15/2014 with one week for cleanup and showings began on Sept 22/2014. On Friday Sept. 26/2014 the house was sold after the presentation of 5 offers. The house sold over the list price exactly as Peter presented in his initial strategy.
Peter didn’t stop there. I had to return to Calgary leaving the final closing of the sale undone. Peter went with our lawyer to visit my Aunt and to her delight, he brought flowers, picked up the mail after the closing and forwarded it to Calgary.
I truly would like to thank Peter for making a very stressful situation as easy and professional as most people could only wish for.
Thank you Peter!!!!

"Highly recommended. A+"
It was good seeing you last night. After you left Cole reminded me about the testimonial I was supposed to write for you. I'm so sorry, I had totally forgot about that. Anyway, better late than never. Here you go.
"As a first time home buyer, I knew almost nothing about real estate. Peter was recommended to me by a friend, and I’m glad I took that friend’s advice. Peter was able to answer all my questions in a way I could understand, as well as pointing out many features that I wouldn’t even have thought of. And his low pressure sales technique kept me comfortable throughout the house hunting process. Highly recommended. A+"
Thanks again for helping me find this house. I'm loving it.
"We couldn't be happier!"
My partner and I recently spent a great deal of time looking for a home in southern York Region. We soon grew tired of the bait and bid game where we were always left behind in a bidding frenzy - real or otherwise. We literally gave up. We heard from friends about Peter and reluctantly called him. We were expecting yet another charlatan.... but Peter seemed different. We explained that we didn't have time for the games; we wanted to see houses that were properly priced and that would most likely sell for around the asking price. We had a budget and had to stick to it. He asked us to be honest up front as to what that budget was and then clearly explained what we could expect in that price range. About a week later we heard from him; he had 3 houses to show us...... all on the same day. Two of the three were in the area we really wanted and both suited our needs. We made an offer on one and when the smoke had cleared, we got it................. and slightly below the asking price. Peter then helped us through the closing jungle and we couldn't be happier.
