When choosing a realtor to help us sell our home we were searching for someone who was experienced in the North Vancouver market. We wanted smart but not slick.  Confidence was a must, but we were also seeking a realtor who was not simply going to tell us what we wanted to hear. As relatively inexperienced home owners, we needed to be able to rely on our realtor's guidance. Peter helped us navigate one of the most turbulent real estate periods in recent history. He gave us solid advice about when to sell and what price we should list at. Peter was straightforward and friendly to deal with, always. I wouldn't hesitate in recommending Peter Ohrnberger to friends or family in the future. 
 
All the best,
Laura

My wife and I had headache to sell our townhouse  for a year.  At the same time, we also wanted to find a duplex to move in.  
 After listing, Peter helped us sell our townhouse within a month for a fair price.  Also, Peter helped us secure an ideal duplex for us at the same time.    He worked with us patiently and walked through all the procedures professionally.
 I would recommend Peter Ohrnberger to anyone who needs a friendly and knowledgeable real estate professional.
 
Thanks a lot, Peter!

Arne and I wanted to pass on our heartfelt thanks to you both for steering us through this “interesting” transaction.  At least our purchase was easy!!

 

Having you both there working for us really helped and gave us the confidence that it would all happen eventually, and if not then at least we could make informed decisions.

 

We are “in” and surrounded by boxes.  This place is fantastic though, definitely a good move in so many ways (although our outdoor cat may not agree).

 

Hugely appreciated and we will be sure to recommend both of you to friends and families.

  Robin Elliott, BBA

I just wanted to say a heartfelt thank you for ALL of your hard work for us over the many years we have been working with you. We are most excited to be FINALLY moving into our new home. It truly figures that we would buy a home while we were out of the country on vacation!”

  Vivian McIntosh

"I would use Peter again: after having bought and sold with him over 3 times over the years. 
I had ticked more than the 3 allowed boxes, in the attributes box, before finding out 3 is the max. Highly recommended."

  Tiana McLachlan

 “Thank you so much for the gift package. That was very kind! We are starting to get settled in our new home and we couldn't be happier. Thank you for all of your help. You were always very informative and patient with us first-time picky buyers! I must say we accomplished almost all of the "wants" we had on our extensive wish list, and definitely got all of the important ones! When the time comes to take the next step we will certainly be contacting you again.”

  Gini Bonner

“Just writing to give my sincere gratitude for the assistance that Peter O. provided during our condo purchase.  Peter walked us through the entire process, negotiated a great deal and was a pleasure to work with and have on our team.  I highly recommend Peter Ohrnberger and know you will be extremely fortunate if he represents you! Emily loved the house-warming gift, although I drank the wine!”

  Jim & Chris Cross

"Peter and Andrea recently managed the sale of a strata property for me. The property was part of an estate and Peter patiently and expertly helped me with the added complexities that this entailed. The property sold quickly for a fair price. I found Peter and Andrea to be professional, accurate and friendly. I would recommend their services to anyone."

  Brent & Julie Cromwell

“Now that we are settled, I do want to thank you again for everything that you did for us. I know we handed you a difficult task in selling a condo in the overcrowded North Van market.  I appreciate the support and for always answering my many phone calls from the sale up to and including the weeks after we moved into our new house.  We are sure that you took care of many things behind the scenes to not burden us with the minute details of the deal. I know we were not, but we felt like your only client from the service you provided.  I have no hesitation in recommending you to any buyer or seller and I look forward to working with you on our next real estate venture.”

  Jim Stark

 "I've used Peter three times as my real estate agent and wouldn't hesitate to use him again. 
If all agents were like Peter, it would be tough to choose one. Fortunately, we're not burdened with that problem." 

  Dan & Megan Stoddart

“Peter provided us incredible support both in the selling of our condo and in the purchase of our town home. Peter was there for us every step of the way, and he really pays attention to all of the details involved in such a big decision. I would HIGHLY recommend Peter Ohrnberger to anyone who is contemplating buying or selling a home.”

“Peter - I can't thank you enough for all you've done and for being so pleasant as well! It has truly been a real pleasure doing business with you. I hope you become the #1 Realtor on the North Shore.”
  S. Matthews
“Peter acted for me both as a listing agent and a purchasing agent. As my listing agent, I was impressed with the thoroughness with which Peter approached all aspects of the listing. from our initial meeting, through setting a price for the home, marketing the home and negotiations. Peter brought an extremely high level of energy to this task and even when an accepted offer was in place, he persisted in marketing the home until all subjects were removed. Because I was impressed with his efforts at selling my home, I asked him to assist me with the purchase of my next home. He continued to bring a high level of professionalism and energy to finding and viewing homes, and added a good sense of humour and patience with me as a picky buyer. I enthusiastically recommend Peter as a real estate agent.”
  O. Craven

  Lois & Joe Fraser

“Just a short note to thank you for all the help you gave us in selling our apartment in North Vancouver. You showed great professionalism, expertise and politeness in all our dealings.”

  D. Soric

“I just wanted to thank you for going the extra mile in the purchase of my apartment. I know that having the same realtor representing the buyer and seller in a transaction can sometimes be a problem, but you handled the negotiations professionally and fairly. I ended up getting a great property at an excellent price and was also impressed with the "extras" that you managed to secure on my behalf. I will not hesitate to refer you to any of my friends and associates.”

  Ken & Suzanne Izatt

Peter is an experienced professional realtor that did much more for us than just list our homes on the MLS. He actively marketed our homes to other realtors who had clients looking to buy, as well as directly to individuals that were in the market. Peters marketing plan included high profile advertising, which included various newspaper ads, web based photo tours, and a professional architectural floor plan in addition to the MLS service. Peter worked very hard at getting other realtors and potential buyers to come out to see our home and was always working our Open House actively selling the features and benefits of our home to potential buyers. I was particularly impressed with his level of follow up after a potential buyer had viewed our home. Throughout the process, communication with Peter was excellent and we always knew what progress was made from feed back provided by potential buyers. Peter was continuously accessible and we dealt directly with Peter as required. We appreciated not having to deal with assistants or go betweens. In both cases his hard work paid off as we sold our houses within a few days at very close to our asking price.

When we were looking to purchase our homes, Peter gave us the jump on the market by getting homes in front of us immediately as they became available. Peter provided us with the information we needed to be comfortable in our decision making process. His negotiation skills allowed us to purchase the homes we wanted at the price we wanted to pay. At no time did we ever feel rushed or pressured into making a decision and felt that Peter always placed our interest first.

I have known Peter Ohrnberger for many years and have found him to be an ethical, honest and hard working individual. Over the past few years, we have had the occasion to sell two homes and purchase two homes in North Vancouver with Peter acting as our realtor.

Other members of my family have also retained Peters services and have been equally satisfied with his efforts. We are both professional sales people that recognize and appreciate Peters experience, hard work and diligence. It is always a pleasure to recommend Peter Ohrnberger to my friends, family and associates as I know they will appreciate his thorough professional and personal service.

  Shannon Okun

“I engaged Peter’s assistance in purchasing my first property. Peter’s approach is honest and candid, he never wasted my time and he was very thorough and professional. Peter went beyond expectations, even helping with some repairs in the property prior to me moving in. Peter was always kind, courteous, and personable. Thanks for your help!”

  Anne-Marie Hammond

“I want to express to you, Macdonald Realty Ltd. and anyone else who may be interested, my gratitude for your highly effective and very valuable services to me and my family in selling our property on the North Shore.

You were recommended to me by my good friend, the knowledgeable and experienced real estate lawyer, Michael Mangan, who also teaches realtors about real estate law, liability, loss prevention and ethics. I cannot imagine a more trustworthy source of referral nor a worthier recipient.

You worked tirelessly and diligently to get the job done, following every lead, forwarding all relevant information and, as a result, producing up to 3 very attractive back-up offers in addition to the first offer that was entirely acceptable to me. I cannot imagine many realtors who would have worked so doggedly when, essentially, the buyer was already in the bag, so to speak.

You saw it as your duty to perform services above and beyond the norm since I was not around to co-ordinate things between tenants, multiple buyers, their inspectors, appraisers and other experts, lawyers and realtors on both sides. I cannot imagine realtors going this far in the service of their clients. Peter, it was a pleasure working with you. You did an absolutely superb job!

I wish you all the best in the future.”

“Peter helped us purchase our first home. I was impressed by his honesty and forthright approach in helping us muddle through the real estate market. He was always available to answer any questions and had us ready to see properties as soon as they came on the market. We got exactly what we wanted including location! I would not hesitate to recommend him to any of our friends and family. We will definitely have Peter help us when we are ready to upgrade. Thank you Peter for all your hard work and professionalism, we really appreciate everything you did for us.”
  Stewart and Melanie Worth

“Our successful re-investment into the BC market place was only possible with Peter's help. My wife and I relocated from Calgary and were not knowledgeable on the Vancouver market. Peter's extensive experience, honesty, and ethical approach to real estate practices allowed us to locate a home that will protect our financial appreciation and serve our requirements for years to come. While looking at listings, Peter's warm personality and great sense of humor made an otherwise stressful day a whole lot of fun. He shared with us homes he thought were priced accurately, and those he felt were not. Having his years of experience and knowledge work for us made us confident in purchasing. I have worked with many real estate agents over the years, and Peter is hands-down the most professional. He more than exceeded our expectations.”

  Brooke Angus
“Thank you for being such a fantastic realtor. You were able to keep us feeling comfortable even when we were way out of our depth. We appreciated you being available at all hours and for never pressuring us to make a move unless we felt it was the right one.”
