Our experience with Krissy was phenomenal while purchasing our new home! Krissy is extremely knowledgeable, helpful , pleasant and made herself always available for any questions or concerns we had. We highly recommend Krissy and if we decide to list our home in the future, she will be the one we call!
From the time of my listing 10/30/18 to the time of closing, 11/19/18 Peter and his team have provided professional, efficient service. I was kept updated throughout the entire process and appreciated their work on my behalf.
We have used Peter and his team for a few real estate transactions in the last few years and he has been wonderful to deal with. Very professional, helpful, and stays positive even when challenges arise. We have recommended his services to other friends in the past and will continue to do so. All around great experience with him.
Krissy was very helpful throughout the entire buying process. She stepped in and took over communication with my difficult lender, and I was able to trust her completely to have my best interests at heart. I highly recommend Krissy.
My home was listed, under contract, and sold in a month--what else can I say?! Peter and his team were always responsive, professional, patient, and honest. I have bought and sold a number of properties, and this was by fair the easiest and--dare I say it?--the most pleasant experience I have ever had. I would recommend Peter and his team without hesitation
I will recommend Peter to anyone buying or selling a house in the State College area. First and foremost, Peter has integrity! No shady stuff here! All open and above-board. He did a great job for me. He gave me the benefit of his experience but was never pushy. He was amazingly responsive, as were the other members of his team. Krissy is very well organized and explained the process to me very clearly. I was treated respectfully. Peter is a real pro! You are in good hands with him.
Our experience working with Krissy was simply phenomenal. She is by far one of the most knowledgeable and professional real estate agents we've ever worked with. Additionally, Krissy is very responsive and on top of things - she gets things done quickly, the way they should be done, and takes care of as much as she possibly can for you. I can't imagine having done this without her - would highly recommend her to anyone needing an agent in the area!
Krissy was the first to respond when I began my search for a new home in State College. From the beginning, she asked great questions and was attentive to listen to my needs and understand what I was looking for. Her knowledge of the area and the market made my search easier and more efficient as I had to travel over 2 hours to see the houses that I was interested. Most importantly, Krissy made me feel like I was her only customer through the entire process. I would recommend her for all real estate transactions in and around State College, PA.
Laurel Catdillo is a highly professional, very experienced, very kind, and always calm and collected agent. Always just a text or call away, always on time, so well conected and knowledgable that anything that comes up is handled efficiently and immediately. Laurel handles all the negotiations and paperwork so smoothly and so fast it's incredible. She is hands down the best agent we have ever dealt with and will absolutely go so again.
Super knowledgable and flexible with scheduling showings for homes. Helped us negotiating a purchase price. Helped us through the whole process. Super sweet and enjoyable to work with!
Went and saw our house on a Saturday, fell in love with it, and Peter went to work right away to make sure we got our offer in before anyone else and to get it under contract. This was very important and appreciative as houses were going very fast in our price range. Overall just an amazing experience and he made the process easy and seamless. Would recommend him to anyone!
Peter's assistant, Krissy Bonson, was outstanding in helping me at every step in the process of selecting, inspecting, and negotiating the price for these properties. She is thorough, punctual and always cheerful and positive, a great problem-solver. I was really busy through most of the process and she made it easy for me, taking care of countless details. I would recommend her to anyone buying a property in State College.
Krissy was wonderful to work with from start to finish! Our situation turned out to be extremely difficult and demanding and she stood by our family unconditionally. She was caring, knowledgeable, and a relentless worker. We wanted this house more than anything and Krissy never stopped trying to make our dream a reality. We will be forever grateful for her dedication. Thank you,
Peter Chiarkas showed to be highly skillful in handling negotiations with buyer and providing the right guidance to move through the various steps without much delays. His knowledge of the local home prices was very accurate, as the asking price was almost negotiated. The issues related to showing the home and inspections were handled elegantly while the unit had a tenant.
Laurel new how to explain the whole process of buying a home and what I needed to to and helped me get a home for my dad i hope i can work with her again as I want to get a home for myself and kisses soon as I can financially do so also she was very please t to talk to if I had any concerns about anything
Highly recommended! This team took complete control of things and got the job done professionally and effortlessly. I can’t express my sincere thanks for taking such good care of me and the sale of my property! Best team in State College!
My house sold in less than a week! Peter and his associates were great to work with, from the pictures to the closing. They were there to answer all my questions and helped out with an unexpected problem when we had already moved out of state. Highly recommend Peter and Krissy at KBB.
Krissy was really good at guiding us on every step of the way. We are new to the area and she made sure she knew exactly what we wanted and helped us to meet our needs. We are very happy with our new house. Thank you!!!
Laurel helped me navigate a particularly challenging real estate market and was patient, knowledgeable and helpful (and did I mention patient?) She showed my family kindness and sensitivity and helped in every way that I needed her to.
Krissy is the BEST! Her customer service, availability via e-mail, phone or texts and attention to my needs are off the charts! I have lived in Centre County all my life and for the past 22 years I have worked in customer service / sales for a local business so I know the importance of providing professional service to our community. Krissy takes this to a whole new level! This past purchase (which was NOT the first time I have had the pleasure of working with Krissy) was huge for me on many levels and she was there every step of the way. I am forever grateful for all the attention she provided and her understanding of what I needed and what I was looking for. The whole process from start to finish was not only enjoyable, but fun and as stress free as it can be when making such a huge transition in ones life. If your looking for a fun, knowledgeable professional who will be with you the whole way from your first meeting to closing (and beyond) don't hesitate for a second to give Krissy a call. Thanks Krissy for helping my dream come true!!!!!!! B.U.P.
We really enjoyed working with Krissy. She kept us informed of everything that was taking place in the process of selling our home. And if we had any questions, she was right there to answer them! And not to mention our house sold in less than a week!
Peter sold our home in a matter of a few days at close to asking. The closing process turned out to be a nightmare as unforeseen circumstances arose. Peter and his team took complete control of the process and we were able to close on time despite complication after complication. He was always calm, positive and professional and his team of Krissy and Laurel were kind and patient when the going got tough. He also recommended a fantastic agent for us to use when purchasing our new home out of state. Many thanks to the Chiarkas team! And I highly recommend them to anyone with high standards and expectations.
Laurel was a delight to work with, endlessly helpful, and funny. I appreciated her candor, looking out for us, her clients, rather than simply wanting to make a quick sale. She took us on seemingly endless house visits and was always available when we needed her. She answered our questions and has deep experience with the local market. She could tell when a house was overpriced, and gave us a sense of what to bid. Laurel and KBB realty in general are highly recommended.
Krissy is an awesome realtor! She really did everything for the whole process and explained everything so well. As a first time home buyer I didnt know what I was doing except buying a house, Krissy made it very easy, she was always there if I needed something or had a question, even on the weekends a few times. I will definitely use her the next time I sell or buy, i most definitely recommend Krissy.
Excellent negotiator. Very fair to all parties involved. Knows the market and how to make a solid offer. The best!!! Krissy is extremely professional and you know you are working with a top notch agent. My family is beyond appreciative to her late nights working and getting the end goal completed. First time buying couldn't have been easier.
Peter Chiarkas and his team are very professional, pays attention to details and knows the market. Paul and I would highly recommend Peter and his team to sell/buy your home. We have used him three times and have never been disappointed!
Peter is excellent in his knowledge of the local market and has extensive buyer contacts. Because if this our home sold in less than a week and prior to listing. We had a similar excellent experience with Peter and his team several years ago when he sold a townhouse rental property that we owned. To this day he has the same high level of professionalism and attention to detail. I give him the highest recommendation.
Peter and his team are outstanding. I love my new home. Peter was very patient as we search for our perfect home. His advice was superb and it was always on point. His buyer's agent Laurel was wonderful and made closing a breeze. From the bottom of my heart I am grateful for Peter and Laurel for making such a big and important decision very easy and enjoyable. I highly suggest this team; they are unparalleled.
We enjoyed working with Krissy while she was helping us settle our first house in State College. We contacted her after seeing her highly rated profile on Zillow. Krissy is very responsive, professional, and responsible! We were inexperienced first-time buyers, and Krissy helped us through the procedure and resolved any issues coming out during the process. We trusted her, and thanks to Krissy we were soon able to find a lovely house we enjoy very much that satisfies our needs! Absolutely highly recommended!!!
Excellent service, and very quick on answering questions and giving information needed. Highly recommended for anyone looking to purchase a new home.
Laurel was a pleasure to work with. She was always very easy to get in touch with and always seemed to have our best interest in mind. She kept after the sellers of our home and kept the entire process moving along smoothly. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking to buy a home.
Krissy was fantastic with our move from VA to PA! She was knowledgeable, resourceful, prompt and very understanding. We would highly recommend Krissy!!!
Peter was extremely vigilant in finding a home that met my wants/needs. He was always available to answer any questions that arose and was very knowledgable no matter what the subject. Hard working does not begin to describe him. I would recommend Peter to anyone in the market for a new home!
Krissy was extraordinary in all aspects of the house buying process. She was very attentive to my specific needs and accommodated me throughout the process of finding a place to rent while hunting for a place and also helping me to figure out exactly what I was looking for both by way of space an price range. Her knowledge regarding the ins and outs of the process is impeccable; and her knowledge of the area was uncanny. She had a pulse on the market and often anticipated how quickly things would move and when to strike - it was artful really. In the house buying marking Krissy is the entire package from first contact to close, she is on your case and working had to help you find exactly what you want, when you need it. I recommend Krissy and her team of professionals very highly.
Peter and Krissy were amazing. We went through the selling of our house while we lived out of state and they were wonderful in keeping us updated on every little detail! They gave us advice on what repairs/maintenance needed to be done in order for it to sell quickly. Krissy was great at setting up appointments and being there when people needed to get in. Also, since we were out of state and didn't have as much snow, she reminded us about plowing the driveway/shoveling the sidewalk and set it all up for us. They made the process extremely smooth and we did not have to stress about anything because we knew they were there to take care of it. I would recommend them to anyone!!
Krissy worked hard to make our experience of selling our home and purchasing another home go smoothly. Everytime we had a question or concern she would always answered promptly. It didn’t matter if it was a holiday or in the evening. We took a lot of comfort knowing she was always there for us. She also made sure the home we were selling recieved a lot of attention so the perfect buyer would walk through the door. I would recommed her to anyone looking to buy or sell a home or both.
My wife and I are first time home buyers and our experience working with Krissy has set the bar very high for any Real Estate Professional that follows Krissy. If we ever need a Real Estate Professional, we will be contacting Krissy first. She worked with us for over 2 years, through thick and thin. When the first and second lender walked away, she still kept showing us houses. We wanted to buy and together we worked through all the hardships. She did NOT treat us like "just another commission" as others had treated us. To her, we were people wanting a place to live and she helped our family find just that, a home. We are grateful for her hard work. Thank you Krissy.
I was impressed with Peter Chiarkas from our first meeting. He was prompt, professional, friendly, and presented himself well. He liked our home and did not tell us to make a lot of changes to it. He had been in contact with us for a few years prior keeping us up to date on real estate in our area. While we were away he called in late January to tell us the timing was good to sell , he listed home and it was sold in 3 days. We were guided through every step in the real estate process to a successful conclusion.
Peter helped us to navigate the very competitive market in State College to purchase our home 7 years ago and then sold it for us in record time. Peter gave us great advise throughout the entire process.
I couldn’t have had a better home buying experience than the one I had with Krissy’s guidance. She was very professional and straight-forward from the start. We looked at a few different houses together and she thoroughly walked through each one of them looking for goods and bads and gave me her honest opinion on everything. It was almost like she was shopping for her own house. She made the shopping part a very fun and exciting experience. Once I decided on a house, she took over the business side of it and made sure that everything went smoothly and that all paperwork and details were worked out as they should. She helped me negotiate and work through details that I couldn’t have done myself. This was my first home buying experience and Krissy was a major asset in the process, I couldn’t have done it without her. I definitely recommend her to anyone looking for a new home. I’ll definitely be giving her a call in the future if we decide to find another house!
Peter and his team are great! They helped with laying out the current market and selecting some good houses to buy, and gave us plenty of time to think about the home, but also let us know when we had to make an offer. Guided these first time home buyers through the entire process and would respond at almost any time to any questions. Can't recommend them enough!
Krissy was great to work with! She was always prompt with answers to questions or concerns, and kept in constant contact with me throughout the entire process of selling my home and purchasing another.
As first time home buyers, Krissy was the perfect agent to have on our side. She was personable, knowledgeable, thorough, and responsive at every point of our buying process. My husband and I were so lucky to have found her, and we would recommend her without hesitation!
We cannot thank Laurel enough for her help and expertise in helping us find our first home! My husband and I looked for our first home for 2 1/2 years and Laurel was by our side the entire time. Any time we would email or call her to schedule to see a house she was always so prompt and would get it scheduled either that same day or the following day. She was always so quick with responding to emails even on weekends and holidays! We truly feel Laurel had our best interest in mind when it came down to our final decision to purchase our home and we cannot thank her enough!
We met Peter when we requested to see a property. On that same outing, he suggested we look at another property. That is the one we purchased and are very happy with it. Peter knew what we wanted before we knew what we wanted. He was available for questions as were the other members of his team. We highly recommend him.
Working with Krissy was an amazing experience: she was incredibly knowledgeable, available 24/7, and respectful of our last minute schedule changes and indecisiveness! It was like having a friend join you on a shopping spree!!! We purchased a house that we love, and she negotiated it very well on our behalf: thank you!!!
Krissy was wonderful to work with. She communicated information clearly, responded quickly, was readily available, and demonstrated acute attention to our needs and the features of homes. She even answered questions that we didn't know we had! The entire process was smooth, simple, and fast.
Great experience! Sold our house in two days and had three quality offers to choose from. Peter himself delivered on every promise and every member of the team shared the same commitment to service, so no matter who we dealt with, the level of service was consistently great! I will use this team again and definitely recommend them to anyone!! Peter's team member Krissy Bonson was phenomenal in every way as well. She took amazing pictures of the house prior to listing, and her response and communication was second to none. Buying or selling, you can count on this team to get you the best deal and advise you in an unbiased, truly service oriented way.
Peter and Krissy helped us sell our home very quickly, and they were always professional and affirmative in demeanor. Krissy took superb pictures that we felt proud of, communicated effectively and efficiently as needed, and made the experience genuinely enjoyable for us. Krissy also communicated equally with both me and my spouse as equal partners, which we noticed and appreciated. In general, KBB made us feel as if we were their only client. Highly recommended.
Appreciated the regular and frequent communications and updates from Peter and his associate, They were always available and followed up on all the questions and needs that presented themselves.
Laurel quickly grasped what we were looking for in a house, and even helped us to refine our wish-list and hone in on the features that were really most important to us. Her insights into the local housing market were quite helpful. She also had a great deal of knowledge about potential pitfalls and hidden problems of houses in general, taught us to spot those risk factors in each house and guided us as we weighed their importance in our decision making. She was friendly, flexible, patient, and always willing and able to help us whenever we contacted her. Most importantly, we feel comfortable that at every step of the process she had our best interests at heart.
Laurel provided excellent service to us in buying a home. She was upbeat, personal, and affable, but also always professional, detail-oriented, and responsive. When we had an issue with inferior work that the seller had done to the home by a contractor, Laurel was a staunch advocate on our behalf, and she stood up for us where we might have compromised. She pointed out things that we missed in her review of the property, and she made us feel good about the whole experience, finding the answer to our every question if she didn't know the answer already. We recommend her highly.
Quickly responded to all requests for appointments and information. Provided knowledge about the local area and advice which assisted in the buying process
Peter Chiarkas' team, specifically Krissy Bonson in my case, is simply amazing. As a first-timer, I had many questions and many concerns, but Krissy was always willing to hear them, address them, and help determine how best to proceed. She communicates clearly, takes ownership of the process, and sees it through. We closed on Wednesday, and I'm left wondering why so many people told me it would be a rough process. I guess that's what I get for having such an experienced professional on my side. Less
When I contacted Peter, he was referred to me, I didn't know the first thing about this process! He walked me thru and answered all my questions. I was really impressed with his know-how and local knowledge. I was very pleased with the quality of his work and would definitely recommend him to anyone I know for their house hunting in the future.
Laurel was great to work with. Very professional!! She was quick to respond when we had questions or requests to see homes. Would recommend her to anyone looking for a home in the State College area.
I loved every bit of my experience with Erica. My boyfriend and I are first time home buyers and she walked us through each step in full understanding detail. She was available 24/7 to answer our many questions. Even if she had to come back with an answer she was very prompt. I would recommend her a thousand times over!
We had reached out to several brokers and they were slow to respond and didn't listen to our needs. Erica was extremely professional, went above and beyond her role as our broker. My dad is a commercial real estate broker, I know the difference between the good ones and better ones. We've already recommended her to some friends in the market and can't imagine anyone that does a better job in state college.
Peter is very hardworking and has excellent negotiation skills. He was constantly communicating till the closing is done. Always available for questions or concerns
We had an outstanding experience with Erica! She was very professional and attentive as well as personable and caring to the needs of our entire family. As first time home buyers she walked us through each step and always ensured we understood and were comfortable with the process. She went above and beyond to not only help us find our home but get aquatinted with the community. I would highly recommend using Erica and her team!
Laurel has been very helpful and responsive through the course of my home searching process, and she has tons of experience about the local market. Additionally, Laurel also is very patient with the process and tries her best to accommodate my preference and needs.
It was a very easy process. I believe from the time I made an offer until we closed was about 3 weeks. I don't have a car and she was always accommodating with rides. Very accessible and will work around your schedule. Really couldn't have asked for anything more.
Laurel is outstanding. She not only had patience, but went out of her way to accommodate our schedules. Laurel worked with all the contractors to guarantee the repairs were not only finished but done properly. When we moved into our home, Laurel made sure it was perfect. Every step of the way, we were given the best advice. Highly recommend Laurel for anyone looking for a home. She will find you the right house!
Erica is amazing! She went above and beyond to help make our real estate transaction as smooth as possible. She is incredibly knowledgeable and fun to work with.
It was an out of state purchase and Laurel took care of every aspect of the transaction! It was a stress free experience. Laurel listens to the needs of her clients and responds appropriately. She is very professional.
We first met Krissy in 2014, as she provided a community tour on the day of my interview with my new job. From the very beginning, she has been extremely personable, and we have felt comfortable with her from the get-go. We decided to rent a home for the first year after we moved here, and even though she would get nothing in return for it (in the way of commission, realtor fees, etc.), she helped us find local resources with available homes to rent. When the time came to buy a home, we turned to Krissy. We were first-time homebuyers, and she walked us through every step of the process. We ultimately chose to build a new home, and Krissy put us in contact with our builder and helped us get that process started. Being new to the process of buying a home, we were grateful to have Krissy as a resource along the way. We hope to be in our home for many great years, but we would certainly turn to Krissy again if the time comes to re-enter the real estate market.
Initial contacts were with Peter. Ongoing through closing was primarily with Krissy Bonson. She was very helpful and responsive to our questions. Cudos to Peter and his Team.
Krissy us a phenomenal resource. She worked with us for over a year to fknd the best home for our family. We highly recommend her services when searching for a home in Centre County.
Peter is a fantastic realtor. He has helped us with three different properties since 2012. Him, Laurel and everyone at KBB are great to work with and help you every step of the way. I won't go with anyone else in State College for being reliable, trustworthy and the best for negotiating in real-estate market.
Erica was fantastic! She provided valuable insight about the area and market to help us find a weekend home to meet our needs. We found a home in the exact location we wanted thanks to Erica!
This was our second property sale/purchase with Peter and team, at both times we were impressed with the speed and dedication of the whole team. Very approachable. An excellent track record. Cant go wrong!
Krissy was great. She was very responsive to all of our questions and concerns. She was timely with responses and really made the process easy. There was no doubt she had our best interests in mind throughout the process which was very important to us.
Mrs. Laurel supported well and extended help to make our Home buying transaction so smooth. I found her very Honest , Responsive with good process knowledge and nice Negotiation skills.
Peter and Laurel were very helpful in helping us secure a mortgage provider and attorney for the process. Since we are moving from out of state, their knowledge of the area was extremely helpful.
Excellent. Professional. Very prompt responses. Was able to answer all of my questions. Help arrange for other services like painters. Extremely accommodating. I am overall very pleased with everything. Would go back to Erica for any new home purchases in the future. Highly recommended.
Peter was always helpful and quick to address any concerns I had. He sold my condo quick and for asking price. I would highly recommend Peter and his team to sell your home
Laurel is not only very knowledgeable of the area, she is also very well versed in homes. She knows what you want in a home and what you don't want in a home. She is very friendly and willing to go the extra mile. I would highly recommend her for your next big purchase!
We would highly recommend working with Krissy as a real estate agent! We started looking for a home several months back, and immediately liked Krissy because she is warm, sincere, she listens to what you are looking for in a house, and she was flexible when we wanted to view homes. Krissy is also able to provide strong guidance when it is time to make an offer, move through the components of the contract, and everything that comes along until the closing. I don’t write a lot of reviews, but in this case I wanted to share because it was our absolute pleasure to work with Krissy and we cannot recommend her enough!!
rica was very responsive to our needs. She made everything go extremely well! She was very personable and seemed to deal well with each new question or problem. I would highly recommend her!
I loved working with Peter. He had my best interest at heart and made sure the home I purchased was exactly what I wanted. I will use him again when/if I sell this house or when/if I'm ever looking for another home in State College.
Peter and his team did a great job. They're extremely knowledgeable about the market and were responsive to any requests made. They consistently went above and beyond and had my house sold within a few days. I would highly recommend them to anyone.
Laurel was great in our relocating and buying process! She really understood our needs and had our best interest in mind. The seller had some problems getting everything for closing and she remained diligent in making sure we could get into our home in a timely matter. Laurel also was a huge advocate for us in making sure we got everything fixed and in proper working order after the home inspection. We would definitely recommend Laurel to anyone looking to buy their new home!
We saw a house listed on Zillow and just sent an inquiry so we could take a look at it. It turns out, Erica was the realtor that responded to my wife. This chance meeting turned out to be the best thing to happen to us in the buying process. Erica knew us well enough in a short time to know what we would think about a property before we even saw it. She was completely honest with us as far as the value of the house and if we should walk away or make concessions to put in an offer. Bottom line, you will not find a better realtor to be in your corner.
Erica was a great realtor! She was dedicated to helping me find the perfect house for me and my budget. She was never upset when we I didn't like a house and helped me to brainstorm exactly what I wanted. She was truly the best!
Laurel is polite, thoughtful, and always responsive and prompt. She contacted us about the recent property we closed on because we let her know we would be interested in properties just like this one. She led us through each step of the buying process and worked with us the whole way through.
Laurel was a pleasure to work with. She quickly understood our desires and requirements for selecting a place to purchase. She was readily available to answer questions during the process of purchasing out new home. Laurel was with us throughout the entire process as well as the closing. We couldn't be happier with an agent and most importantly we felt totally comfortable with her representing our interests.
Peter and his team did a fabulous job for us! They gave us good solid advice when listing our home, and they followed through on EVERY detail along the way. Along with being exceptional realtors with lots of experience, they are good, hard-working people with strong morals. That means a lot to us.
Peter and his team were always quick to reply to any of our concerns, no matter how small. When there was a issue, they were quick to find a solution. It is apparent that the team is well trained and have a good amount of experience handling real estate.
Laurel was very responsive and offered a wealth of advice and expertise during the home search and purchase process. Our family greatly appreciated her support.
Peter worked tirelessly to make my selling experience trouble free. Since I live out of state this was a big issue for me. Would highly recommend Peter and his staff for any selling or buying real estate transaction!
Helped us buy our home. Very reliable, trustworthy, knowledgeable, friendly. She made the buying process flow smoothly and effortlessly from our buyer standpoint. Prompt responses and was available to us whenever we contacted her. We were lucky to have met her and been able to work with her.
Krissy did all the leg work for my husband and I. She made everything so easy! She worked with another agent and our home sold in less than 4 weeks. She kept us informed of all the details, the progress of the buyer's loan and was very helpful in answering any and all questions we had. We would not hesitate to use her again and highly recommend her to anyone buying or selling a house or property. She is professional, friendly, courteous and friendly. Can't say enough good about this agent.
Peter and his team were wonderful. We had offers within days without lifting a finger. Great experience and would most definitely recommend to anyone needing lots of help or none at all--they are informative, resourceful and all around amazing.
Peter took over my listing after a prominent local agent had it for over 3 months in the prime selling season and failed to sell my home. I switched to Peter after I read his bio. We met, I liked his approach and felt my house was in good hands. It was the best decision I made. Within short order Peter and his team had things up and running. The ad was changed, placed on various internet sites and it was full speed ahead. He and his team kept me totally informed about all the activity on the house. After each showing I received the results of a questionnaire that each prospective buyer completed. The buyers comments were invaluable. IT was and excellent tool. This was done usually within 24hours of the showing, more times than naught I had the survey within the same day. Peter, his team, especially Krissy Bronson were professional but also very personable. I would highly recommend them to anyone selling their home in the state college area
Peter and Krissy were great to work with, very professional, knowledgeable, and friendly. They responded to all of our questions and concerns in a timely manner. They got the job done and did it well!
Laurel showed me houses over an extended period. Once we found one, she helped me expedite the buying process so I could move quickly. She guided me through the process every step. This is the third house we've purchased here and every time we've worked with Laurel. She's simply the best!
In short - benchmark experience - again. Just completed my fourth successful transaction with Peter and his team. From acquisition to selling, he and his team get it handled quickly and properly. The amount of experience he has in the market is evident from the first time you'll speak with him. He's afraid to tell it like it is but in such a way you'll invite him over for dinner later because you'll realize he's *right*. The consistent level of professionalism and experience received in working with him the first person I recommend to anyone looking for a realtor in the Pennsylvania market.
Peter and his team were very proffesional and helpful with our case. They helped us to find the perfect house, and we cannot be happier. Thank you very much !
Peter and his team are wonderful to work with for both buying and selling. We highly recommend using him for your home buying/purchasing needs. Professional and timely in communications, excellent at negotiating and dealing with the unexpected. We've recommended him to several friends who have also had great success finding the new homes with his help!
Highly recommend Peter. He works tirelessly on your behalf and will get you what you want. Very professional, everything was efficient. His staff is very helpful as well. You will be happy you chose to work with him.
Peter and his team are fantastic. Krissy Bronson was very helpful and our experience was outstanding. From initial contact through closing, we were well informed and Team Chiarkas was extremely professional.
Krissy was absolutely amazing! So knowledgeable, down to earth and kind. She went above and beyond to assure that I was aware of every step in the home buying process.
Laurel, Is an incredible buyer’s agent that brings dedication and honesty to the table for those that she works for. She continuously worked hard to find homes that met our requests is a tough market for an affordable price.
Peter, Krissy & their team were fantastic to work with, we highly recommend them. Throughout the process, they kept our best interests in mind. They assisted with locating temporary housing, were always available for viewings, and alerted us to potential issues with properties when they could have easily pushed us in the direction of purchasing to move on to other clients. The service provided by Krissy Bonson, in particular, was impressive. When challenges arose following the home inspection, Krissy stayed on top of the issue, kept us in the loop, worked with the selling realtor, and ultimately paid a plumber to come out, assess, and repair the hot water tank. When we started the process of finding a realtor and home we hadn’t expected the level of service we received. We wholeheartedly recommend Peter, Krissy & their team. They are true professionals
Both Peter and Krissy made my home sale a great experience and wish them the best of luck with future sales/buying opportunities. I would definitely recommend their team to friends and prospective business partners.
Peter was very helpful with our home search & purchase. He listened to our needs and provided us with appropriate listings. He is very knowledgeable of State College real estate, was responsive to our questions and gave us good advice. He is a very positive person who was easy to work with. His associate Laurel navigated us through the purchase process and kept us well-informed of all the steps. We have purchased many other homes, and this was one of our most positive experiences.
Peter and his team did a great job selling our home. They helped us with every aspect of the sale. His team member Krissy Bonson was especially helpful and always replied to any of our questions very promptly. We are very happy with out experience.
Very good experience. Laurel was available constantly to answer questions and would work to get me in to see the homes immediately. Houses sell in hours or days around here, so that was key. The experience was entirely streamlined, from seeing the houses to signing the paperwork at the end. In addition, the inspectors and contractors that provided quotes and reports were reliable and thorough.
My work was with Krissy Bonson. She was wonderful. Very responsible and prompt in all responses. She always got back to me the same day I emailed her a question. I lived in Illinois and could not be at the closing in PA, but she was careful to handle all the details and let me know exactly how much I needed to wire to closing. I would recommend her to anyone choosing to buy a house (or sell) in the State College area.
Peter, Laurel, and Krissy are true professionals in their field. Last year, the team assisted us in selling our existing home and buying our new home. They were incredibly attentive, responsive, and knowledgeable about the local market. It can be a real logistical and financial challenge to sell an existing home while also trying to locate and buy a new home. Peter and the team also recommended other seasoned professionals to assist with securing financing as well as for other issues that arose when attempting to sell our 100+ year old home. In the end, everything came together just as it should have. Always consider using a real estate agent who knows the market and has the experience to overcome any and all challenges that can be presented in a real estate transaction. I give Peter and his team at Kissinger Bigatel and Brower the highest recommendation and advise that you look no further for your real estate needs in Centre County, PA.
We loved Laurel Cardillo! We are extremely busy daily due to work and travel but had only a limited window in which to view, buy and settled into a new home. With these stringent deadlines, she took care of everything for us and watched out for our interests carefully throughout the entire process. She also sent us reminders and feedback, assured us when we became worried with the slowness of the underwriting process. She took us from viewing to closing exactly within 50 days! Situations and circumstances will always vary from buyer to buyer and she worked with our situation beautifully. For us first time buyers, Laurel is truly a blessing. She took us through the entire thing smoothly and was very patient with all of our noobie questions. She sent us guides, feedback and set us up with MLS notifications months in advance of our purchase. Put up with tonnes of random questions and an intensely picky list of 'what we want in a house'. THANK YOU LAUREL!!
I was happy with the service. laurel was a nice person and helped us a lot in the process. Since this was our first time buying a home, we expected her to do more negotiation on the price etc.
Understood what we were looking for and found it. Peter, Laurel, their knowledge and experience, made the experience pleasant and rewarding. Most importantly, I felt that Peter and Laurel were always working with us and with our best interests as a priority. Peter and Krissy made the selling process easy with their timely, knowledgeable, & informative guidance and support.
Had a great experience with Peter and his team! They helped us sell our house within a few days and provided support through entire process. His associate, Krissy, even handled setting up requested repairs for us.
Peter and Laurel made our 1st time home buying process as smooth as possible! They took the time to explain the whole process very thoroughly, and were very professional and helpful! I would without a doubt recommend them to any of my friends and colleagues in the future.
Laurel was available day or night, weekday or weekend. She got us into houses before showings were able to be scheduled. In the end her fast thinking and fast action got us the house we have dreamed about.
Peter and his associate Krissy were excellent in their dealings with me. I told them very specifically what I was looking for in a home and they made sure to help me find exactly what I wanted. Any time I had a question or concern they were there for me. They knew the answers and if they did have the answer at that exact moment they went out of their way to find it. I was more than satisfied with how they treated me throughout the entire buying process.
I used Zillow reviews to find Peter! I had originally contacted other realtors without Zillow but none were interested in selling my house. I then researched Zillow to find out who was the best and most successful realtor in the Julian area. My research paid off - Peter had a very positive attitude, was very knowledgeable, and orchestrated a successful sale that promptly extracted more money than I had anticipated. Peter's assistant Krissy was equal to Peter in attitude, and handled paperwork and details professionally. Over time I have purchased or sold a home 6 times. Buying and selling homes usually is no picnic and can be a nightmare. These two worked well as a team to make this my easiest and most enjoyable experience.
Peter, Krissy and Lorelei all went out of their way to help sell our home, and find us a new home. I would recommend them to anyone in the market to buy or sell. I have never met more caring , professional people.
Mr. Chiarkas worked with my wife and I throughout the whole process of buying our new home. He was courteous, professional, and relentless in ensuring our total satisfaction.
Excellent Service. They handled the move, the moving company, the sale of the house, negotiated the furniture the buyer wanted. The only we did was answer email. We were nervous about doing all this long distance but it all worked thanks to Peter and his team. Especially Krissy!!!!
Peter has great local knowledge and is always on top of the current market. He and his team have excellent resources and use them very effectively. We highly recommend Peter and his team for anyone selling or buying a home in the State College area!
Peter and team were very attentive, professional, patient and diligent. I highly recommend KBB and Peter as great resources to meet your real estate needs in State College!
Peter helped me both sell my home and purchase a new one. Everything went really smoothly thanks to Peter and his assistants. I would recommend Peter for others looking to buy or sell a home.
Peter knows the market well and is a pro at helping you understand how to set a price for sale of your home and how to determine the price for buying a home. He is very good at keeping in touch and responding to questions.
Peter is the only realtor as far as I am concerned. If there is a question he has the answers. He always says he works for you and that is very true. Whether buying or selling he will work the hardest to get the job done. We have bought and sold through Peter several times and have worked with other realtors and Peter blows them all away with his knowledge. The whole process can be very stressful but just trust Peter because he is true to his word. I have bought or sold 3 home with him and it has been a delight!
Peter is the only realtor I would want selling my house if I was you! Peter pulled out all stops and was thoughtful in his strategies to sell my house. It was a challenging sale as the house was incredible, located on 13 glorious acres yet needed a bit of updating for a house of its high end caliber. And completely emptied of its contents. Peter's communication skills are top notch and he can be rational in emotional situations. Aren't all house sales emotional to some degree? His marketing is solid. He can identify top assets and leverage them to overcome shortcomings on a property. I would be remiss not to mention Peters right hand person Krissy. She was absolutely invaluable to me. She is smart, knowledgable, a go getter and has impeccable follow-up. Can you tell I'm pleased?
Hands down the best experience we have had with an agent. He is very professional. In fact the entire team is awesome! We will always refer Pete and his team to anyone buying or selling a home.
I was very impressed by Peter and his team. Peter, along with his Listing Coordinator, Krissy Bonson, were always quick to respond to any questions from my wife and I. They also helped us get the price we wanted for our house, and negotiated a timeline that fit our needs. We were first time sellers, so we appreciated their detailed explanations and proactive updates to help us along the way. I would highly recommend them to anyone looking to buy or sell. They made the process extremely easy and stress free.
Peter was superb. Stayed in close contact with us through the buying of a new home and selling our previous home. He new the ins and outs of the market well and was incredibly responsive to our copious questions. His staff was so helpful in processing all of the paperwork and keeping straight the continually changing dates along the way. I wouldn't hesitate to go to him the next time we go through this process (though I hope that's not for a while!) and would likewise be willing to recommend him to anyone in the Centre region who is looking to buy or sell.
Peter was very responsive to my calls. When we met, he was professional, prepared, and exhibited his familiarity and knowledge of the market in my area. We received a solid offer on the residence very quickly, and Peter and his staff guided us through the process throughout. I would receive calls from Peter to just "check in" to see if I had any questions. He was very professional, and I would highly recommend him as a realtor.
I've sold many homes over the years. I contacted Peter over 2 years before we actually listed with him. To his credited he stayed with us over that length of time. He is professional, knowledgeable, communicative and personable. He anticipates questions and problems and handles them effectively. He has an excellent support staff that compliments his talents. I was never in the dark during the sales process and the transaction couldn't have gone any smoother. I strongly recommend Peter.
Peter was very professional in his dealings with us. He was optimistic throughout, even when we weren't, and always had 'time' for us....didn't seem rushed at all. He has earned his excellent status, and we are grateful for all he did for us.
Peter was highly recommended to me by a neighbor. I met with him on a Wednesday night in April and was impressed with his professionalism and organization. I signed the sales agreement that night. Krissy Bonson took pictures of my condo the following AM and my condo was up on the MLS that night. Friday appointments were made for viewings on Saturday. Sunday PM Peter and I met again and I had 2 full price offers and sold my condo! The entire process was effortless on my part thanks to Peter and Krissy. Communication was weekly until closing the end of May which I really appreciated. I could not have been happier! I would highly recommend Peter in the future!
The Chiarkas team run a first class operation. When we signed with him he said he'd have our house sold in 30 days. Three weeks later we had a sale pending sign in our front yard. Thanks for everything Peter!
Peter Chiarkas and Krissy Bonson worked with me when I was moving from Pleasant Gap to Ann Arbor. Their expertise and helpful advise every step of the way helped. They sold the home, and went above and beyond by helping with little tasks such as snow removal, landscape, turning down the heat, and many more. It was absolutely a pleasure working with them. Thank you for all you did!
I would highly recommend Peter Chiarkas to handle your real estate business. He is very professional, but also very personable. He kept my husband and I informed of what was going, every step of the way. He and his assistant Krissy were always willing to answer any questions that we had. He always returned our phone calls promptly. Once a week, we would receive an e-mail from him, telling us about any showings and the comments that were made. Our home sold quickly, and this was largely because of Mr. Chiarkas!
Peter and Laurel were wonderful to work with, and they made the process of buying a home easy and smooth. We were first-time home buyers looking for something in the lower price range for State College, and we worked primarily with Laurel. She was very helpful and quick to respond to all of our questions or concerns, even when she was on vacation! Both Peter and Laurel were happy to explain every part of the process to us so we felt comfortable and informed.
Laurel showed us a house right before she left for vacation, and we fell in love with it right away. When we decided to make up an offer, she prepared the papers hours before leaving for her trip, and Peter helped us make the offer. He guided us through that part of the process and explained all of our options. They were excellent through the inspection stage and final steps. We would recommend Peter and Laurel to any of our friends or family who are looking to buy or sell a house. The process was seamless and the service was EXTRAORDINARY! We couldn't be happier. Thank you very much, Peter and Laurel!!!
Peter is very professional and an excellent negotiator. He and is staff were very thorough and positioned our property for maximum exposure. We ended up with multiple offers. He made us feel important and confident as he guided us through the listing and closing process. His staff is extremely professional and personable and always worked in our best interest. I highly recommend Peter and his staff and will look for their services again.
Everything went smoothly and in an incredibly timely manner. Everyone associated was so easy and pleasant to work with! Krissy especially anticipated our needs without any high pressure making what can be a very stressful process almost easy.
Peter was highly recommended and performed accordingly. He was polite, paid attention to detail, made appropriate suggestions, and maintained contact thru the entire marketing and sales procedure. I have recommended him to friends and will use him again if I need such service.
Peter Chiarkas and his wife Anita are long time family friends. I grew up in State College but have lived elsewhere for the last 12 years. My parents had Peter as their selling agent about a year ago while selling the hoke I grew up in. It was a tough thing to do but through Peter's professional and friendly advice, hard work and dedication; their house was sold and they made a transition to their new home. Peter still calls them to see how they are liking their new home on occasion and I feel that his kind nature and warm heart says a lot about his character. Thank you Peter for being there for my mom and dad!
Peter and his professional team were awesome in every step. There were challenges dealing with my bank that P eter worked thru that made it look easy that is what real pros do. Thank you Peter
Peter is a great person as well as a terrific realtor. Over the years he kept in contact with my husband even though we had only known him through a sale which went to another realtor. When it was time to sell our condo the market was very bad. He got us exactly want we thought it was worth!
Laurel was very helpful in the entire process of buying out first home. She was more than knowledgeable about the property and codes for loans to help us get the right house and price. She was a pleasure to work with and was also positive towards us. She also gave us real answers to questions and didn't hide the truth about her feelings towards a house or the cost. Thank you so much.
Laurel Cardillo, who is part of the Peter Chiarkas team, did an excellent job of helping me locate a great house within commuting range of Penn State. A lot of the work I did with her was from California, and she was great and handling all the local details and things I couldn't do from a distance. She was also very helpful at linking me to useful services, like trustworthy contractors, needed during the inspection process and for things I needed after we closed on the house. Her handling of the paperwork and process was all very timely. I would certainly recommend her to anyone else moving into Pennsylvania.
Laurel Cardillo was very knowledgeable and helpful during my home purchase. This was my first time working with a Realtor, and it went quite well. Laurel was available to answer questions, conduct negotiations, and provide requested information for several properties that I viewed. She even accommodated several walk-throughs of the property I eventually purchased. I would reccomend Laurel to anyone looking for a Realtor in State College.
Highly professional and understands the importance of meeting the demands/expectations of his clients. I definitely recommend Peter for any real estate needs because of his knowledge and experience. I think when it comes to dealing with either selling your home or purchasing a home, it is critical to find a realtor that is highly knowledgeable in his field of expertise; in addition, knows the area well and highly reputable. Because I know Peter definitely worked extremely hard to stand by his highly regarded reputation in the State College/Port Matilda area. Peter also has an assistant Laural Cardillo that is available to answer questions and assists with anything you will need so that makes it so much easier when you know as a client you are able to reach someone for assistance at all times.
A personal touch to this review for Peter is that when we purchased our home, we had a window that needed to be repaired after inspection. The seller obviously didn't want to spend a penny on fixing anything in the house; so to make the deal happen, Peter voluntarily assisted in fixing up our window. When we did the final walk thru, the window was not 100% fixed and actually needed a replacement. All in all, Peter was willing to pay up to $850 for repairing our master bedroom window. And honestly, I feel that with any realtor after the closing of the house... they could easily walk away from this matter. However, I definitely understand that Peter lives up to his good reputations in the area and with good word of mouth he is able to do better business in the future. Anyhow, he understands the importance of keeping a customer happy and sometimes it may mean making slightly less. Big Kudos for that!
So, I definitely recommend choosing Peter if you are new to the State College area. Give him or his assistant Laural a call. They are both truly knowledgeable of the area and would assist you in picking just the right house.
Peter has sold 3 of our properties over the years in a timely fashion. He communicates well. He works well with both husbands and wives. He is a closer! He's great! I would highly recommend him.
Peter is not only an excellent realtor who knows everything about the market he is also a great friend, from the moment you meet him he stays in contact with you and cares about how you are doing, if you want the best realtor and a someone you and your family can trust he is by far the person.
I have worked with Peter and his team on 3 buy/sell properties. I wouldn't think of using anyone else. They are a fabulous group of people to work with. If you want an honest, hard working, responsive and fun group of people Peter (and team) are the people to call.
I had a great experience while choosing my home. Peter Chiarkas was a great helper throughout the whole entire process! He was very responsive with the questions I had, and always gave quick response! I will recommend him, ALWAYS! Thanks Peter!
Peter assisted us in the purchase of an investment property in State College, and to direct us to potential purchases in very short order. When a first purchase fell through for reasons having nothing to do with any of the parties, but with peculiarities of the State College Zoning Ordinance, he located an alternative property within days. His knowledge of the local market is encyclopedic, since he has spent most of his life in State College, and essentially all of his professional life in real estate.
Working with Peter was a great experience. We used him to sell our old home and to purchase a new one. One advantage of working with him is that he works with a team. This means that we had access to specialized services on issues such as staging our old home, inspections, etc.. Our old home was sold in two days for slightly more than the listing price. When purchasing our new home, he gave us access to real-time data on the local housing market through his Private Services Client website. This was really helpful. We were able to see new houses on the market before they were posted on the websites of other real estate companies. On the whole, working with his team was a great experience. As a result, we would highly recommend him.
Peter is a wonderful person to work with regarding his personality, knowledge, and expertise. He helped to get my home sold, which was not sold by two other realtors in three years. I don't believe he has magic, but however he can bring an offer to you. Highly recommended! Greg
Never meeting Peter with just phone conversations on a long distress sale of our property he was great to work with. He was able to get a great price for the property and quick sale. Would use his service anytime.
Smart and professional with good local knowledge.
He helped list and sell our property for exactly what he told us.
Not a pushy seller either as he has shown us property also - very honest.
I highly recommend Peter for both buying or selling.
Peter and his team were easy to work with and went above and beyond the call of duty when needed. I always felt at ease knowing that he was on my side. He was eager to explain details of our transaction and did so openly and honestly.
We were completely satisfied in our dealings with Peter, who represented us in the sale of our home. He is honest, knowledgeable, possesses a strong work-ethic, and really hustles to ensure your deal is closed as fairly and expeditiously as possible. Overall, we were one-hundred present satisfied in our dealings with Peter and his real-estate firm.
I worked with Peter and Laurel when looking to purchase my home starting last Spring. Laurel was great when it came to accommodating my every want to go look at every house I thought I might like either that day or the next day. I could not have been any happier with the follow up services and the overall customer service that I received while working with Laurel and Peter. They are great!
Mr. Chiarkas was very professional. I really didn't know what I wanted to buy and he helped me sort out what I wanted and needed before purchase. After the sale he kept in touch to make sure everything was ok. I couldn't have asked more of both him and the Realtor.
Peter was very prompt in helping me to view multiple different homes in the general vicinity of where I intended to move. He was very patient and did not attempt to "sell" any of the residences to me. I was hoping that Peter would handle the entire process from viewing to closing but due to a business trip, my negotiation, inspections, etc. were handled by another agent. However, I thought he did a great job and would definitely recommend him to other prospective buyers
Peter has exceptional knowledge of the local markets, and the details of a real estate transaction and is always working in the best interests of his clients. His staff is also very professional and makes sure everything is completed properly and in a timely manner.
Peter sold my house on the first day, full asking price. I really appreciated that he was able to market the house so that potential buyers came in very quickly. He also advised me on an appropriate price point using appropriate comparable houses in my neighborhood. I understand buyers were coming from as far away as Virginia. What more can I say!
I have used Peter for real estate transactions in the past and he is very committed and reliable. I feel secure with Peter and know my transactions will be successful when he is involved. His service is exceptional.
Peter Chiarkas is a very respectable business man. He was very helpful in getting the house sold in a short period of time. He also kept us updated on everything that was going on. I would not hesitate to recommend Peter to anyone who wants to sell their house. Very professional.
Professional and diligent. Excellent and prompt responses to questions. Personable and easy to work with. All in all a very good experience using Peter as a realtor to sell a house.
Peter Chiarkas listed and sold a property for us within 2 days. He is highly professional and has a high rate of follow through. He is very fair and honest.
Peter was with us every step of the way thoughtout our home search and was very patient with us, despite the relatively long time it took us to find a home. He has a very good knowledge of the local marketplace and is able to use that knowledge to help get his clients a great deal. I would recommend him, especially to those (like us) who were new to real estate.
Peter was excellent to work with. He always made himself available, was very knowledgeable about the properties we looked at, and got us answers to questions he wasn't able to address.
Peter has a dedicated team working with him to ensure that you get all the services you need in a timely manner. In my specific case, our house was listed promptly, viewings were arranged, and the house was sold within two weeks for a great price. Couldn't have asked for much more.

Peter has been very professional to work with! He knows his business. We have always been able to count on a quick response when we were looking for homes. We have recommended him in the past and will certainly do so again in the future.
Peter was easy to work with, friendly and very professional. He didn't assume to know our needs, but asked and LISTENED. He has a very competent staff that made all the processes of selling and buying a home seamless. A wonderful experience. Highly recommended!
Peter was very professional in all our dealings with him. He listened to our long list of wants and needs and was patient with us throughout the long process of finding just the right place. He is also supported by a friendly and competent staff. I would highly recommend Peter to anyone looking for a superb real estate agent. He has all the skills needed to get you into the home you're looking for, from listing and selling your current home or closing the deal on your dream home. Professional, friendly and competent.
Peter Chiarkas was very motivated and aggressive in selling our home. After signing with him, we had showings within 12 hours. He advertised our house in several methods: in print, verbally and through the internet. He networked and negotiated until a suitable buyer was found. He never gave up and was always upbeat and optimistic. We truly enjoyed working with him and consider him a wonderful real estate professional.
Our townhouse was listed and under contract within two weeks. Promotional materials were quickly collected and distributed, negotiations for repairs prior to finalization of the contract were handled smoothly, all paperwork and communications were completed accurately and quickly.
Peter's most helpful action was in pricing the townhouse. We had a price range in mind and his knowledge of the prices and comparable condition of other similar townhouses on the market was invaluable in selected the optimal asking price.
We would definitely request Peter's services again.
We worked with Peter found a house within one month closed in another month and had our first house in less then 2 months......AWESOME! We told him what we were looking for and he found it and got the house $7000 less then what they were asking for.
Peter is a very pro-active real estate agent. I worked with him for several years before I was able to afford to buy the type of home I wanted. Once I had the money, it did not take long to find a home, which suited my needs.
Peter was more than responsive to my needs and was very helpful and attentive during the purchase of my new home. I will recommend highly in the future and will ask for his help in any of my future aquistions.
Helped me purchase a townhouse in 2009 and then sell it in 2012. Well informed of the area and places for sale. Was always available. When it came time to sell it in 2012, he sold it in 11 days and got a great offer.
Peter is a very pro-active real estate agent. I worked with him for several years before I eventually was able to afford to buy the type of house I wanted. He promptly returns calls and emails. I get the impression that he is one of the more active and successful real estate agents in the Centre Region.
Peter was fantastic. We interviewed three realtors, choose Peter and had no regrets. He generated a lot of traffic through our home and sold it in 8 days for us. And then resold it after the first purchase fell through. The second sale took one day and we had multiple offers. Awesome.
I always believed he was treating us and potential buyers with full integrity. He has a great network he uses to make contact with interested potential buyers and is optimistic, hardworking and professional. I strongly recommend Peter Chiarkas to anyone selling a home in State College. Seriously, choose him.
We were very happy with the service that we received from Peter while selling out house. He was very quick to get back to us with any questions and has very good knowledge of the market in the surrounding area.
We have known Peter since he began his real estate career. He is hard working and sharp. We sold our first house with him 14 years ago, and our second 6 months ago. We recommend him.
he listed my home in the depths of the housing crisis and it sold before he could put his sign in the yard, and it sold for the asking price. he also arranged for a rent-back to accommodate our closing on our new home.
Peter was very responsible, organized and professional and looked out for our best interests during negotiations with the buyer. I would recommend him to friends. In fact I did and he sold their house, too.
Not only is Peter an extremely professional and knowledgeable realtor, he's also very personable and easy to work with. He has a way of making you feel at ease from the moment you meet him! I highly recommend Peter to both sellers and buyers. With his guidance and expertise, I recently sold my home and will be making my next home purchase through him as well. He has my vote of confidence!
Peter was so professional and personal. He really helped us sell our property with our needs in mind. Any issues were addressed immediately and he kept us up to date on the status of showings. He treated us as though we were his only client.
Peter is not only great at what he does, he's enthusiastic about it. We purchased our last two houses with Peter and will always enlist his help and expertise in future home purchases.
Peter helped me even though it wasn't going to benifit him in any way. I needed a place to rent for my wife and I. He gave me the information I needed to find a great place. I really appreciated his willingness to help me even though he didn't stand to benifit from me. Thanks
I'm writing this almost 5 months after we moved in to our home and 7 months after the purchase. Service after the sale is important to me as the entire purchasing process gets SO hectic, one sometimes forgets little details. Peter, Anita and Laurel gave us so much help before, during and, even this much, after... I wouldn't use anyone else. We didn't use our last Realtor this time because of so many problems after our last purchase... it was like we got the plague. Steven didn't want to have anything to do with us...so we traded up for a better realtor this time around, and we got one.
We used Peters' team to sell and buy this time around!
Peter has a special way of making things run smoothly and reduce the stress usually associated with this type of transactions
Peter and his staff have been wonderful to work with, as well as being personable and fun. His knowledge and attention to detail made selling our old home and buying our new one as painless as possible. He & his staff were able to arrange both deals around a very demanding time table and were always there to answer my many questions. Peter's charming personality doesn't hurt, either.
Peter was very professional and knowledgeable. Peter had the requisite market knowledge and connections to price our house appropriately (sold our house in one day) and to assist us in making an offer on our new home. Peter was timely, professional, and helpful in all aspects of the selling/buying process. I would definitely use Peter again if the need arose.
Great understanding of the area and very keyed in on investment opportunities. Working with Peter was very rewarding and I would recommend he and his team to any serious investors in the Centre County area.
Peter was very professional and knowledgeable. Peter had the knowledge and market insight to list our house at the right price-point. While the average time on market at that time was about 90 days, Peter had ours sold in 35 days, and at nearly full asking price!
I can’t thank Peter enough for the service he provided my wife and me.
I have worked with Peter Chiarkas twice. About ten years ago, when I was going to sell my home, I worked with three agents from 3 different realties. One of them was Peter. Through the process I decided not to sell my home, however, of the three agents, I knew, if I were to sell, I would call Peter. He is self-assured, knows what he is doing, isn't pushy and yet is very caring. So in 2010, I decided to sell and I called Peter and everything, EVERYTHING went smoothly. I trusted that he knew me and was behind me. Peter has a very calming effect. He is efficient, professional, and very knowledgeable about all the details of selling a house such as the right paper work, time frames, the right people to contact for inspection, how to set up showing the house without stress, and how to negotiate. He follows up on what he says he will do. He is also very good at explaining all the paper work in a clear and concise way so that you feel well informed.. I highly recommend him as an agent.
Peter was very honest with us regarding our home and the possibilities. We were kept up to date on the activity regarding our home sale and the home sales in our area. Peter was available at any time to discuss our options to ensure we were happy with the sale of our home.
Peter sold us a house, and sold our house while we lived in State College. He made our experiences very enjoyable. His vast knowledge of the area opened up opportunities we would not of known about. Being Transplants to State College, the TLC he provided helped us bond immediately with him as partners. His evaluation of the market was spot on and allowed us to sell our home within a week, while protecting our equity. If I was trying to make a choice on what agent to pick in State College, it wouldn't be close. Peter is your man hands down! A special mix of great people skills with solid business acumen.
Peter conducted the "paperwork" portion on the closing of my mother-in-laws condo - title search, attorney, etc. (We had a private buyer, and did not utilize his negotiation skills, although I have no doubt we would have had a positive outcome.) Peter was very knowledgable and constantly kept me in the loop concerning the details of the closing. If the need should arise, I would certainly use Peter as my realtor.
