Impeccable! I couldn't be happier with the level of service and attention we received from the McDowell Team. Buying a house has been the most expensive purchase of our lives. Working with them, made me feel confident about our decisions and they guided us every step of the way. They have strong negotiation skills, exceptional work ethic, and most importantly, they will find you exactly what you are looking for. Not only are they professional, but they are truly down to earth realtors. I would highly recommend them to anyone in the market for real estate.
These guys are amazing! They go out of their way to perfectly stage your home, produce high-quality brochures and marketing materials, rely on their major network, and do what it takes to get your home sold quickly, at the price it's worth. Selling a house can be stressful! With the right team, not so much! I wish we'd found the McDowell Real Estate Group sooner.

Peter has sold two houses for me, both in Pleasanton. He looked out for me every step of the way. His knowledge of what people are looking for, current trends, and local contractors (for small fix-it jobs as well as complete renovations) is extensive. Peter is honest and fair, and a complete pleasure to work with. I wholeheartedly recommend Peter and his wife Mari for any of your real estate needs.

This is my shout out to your agency - class, respect and compassion would sum it up!
I knew that I needed some sprucing up before the house went on the market. For every job that needed to be done, Peter had some of the best people I've ever had in my home. They worked with me on pricing and timing. Their timeline was just right. And after my home sold (the first weekend), they helped with the inspection and all aspects of escrow and closing. I highly recommend the McDowell Real Estate Group!
Consummate professionals! We sold our house and got the best of both worlds! Twice the professionalism. We had a Broker open house on a Friday, 60+ Brokers viewed our house and at least 10 knew their clients would make an offer. We had our Open House two days later on Sunday. We had 85+ people walk through our house. On Monday we had 5 offers. Tuesday we had 7 offers, all over asking. House was sold on Wednesday! You will NOT find better realtors in the East Bay. I wish we could take them with us with each new house we buy or sell.

We love you and we love our new home. You guys are sent from above!!!

The McDowell Real Estate Group are very professional and work extremely well with their clients. We interviewed the top agents in our area to list our custom home and found that the approach and process they provided met our exact requirements where others were lacking. We have bought, developed and sold many homes over the years and our experience with them was by far the best.
My wife and I have always wanted to buy a home in Pleasanton. Peter made that dream came true. The McDowell Real Estate Group was recommended by some close friends and we were happy with their service. Very knowledgeable of the area, found us a home that fit our VERY specific specifications, and got us the house we wanted even though there was another offer on the table. We love our home and don't plan on moving anytime soon, but if we did we would use them again.
Your expertise and professionalism maximized my outcome both as a buyer and as a seller. Your knowledge of the area and the market conditions combined with your understanding of my needs as a client makes your services uniquely valuable.
Ginger and I want you to know how much we appreciate everything you have done to simplify our lives during the entire process. Ginger refers to you as our Lucky Charms. You helped make everyone’s dream come true. Thank you!

I must say they had lots of patience in our search as sometimes we ourselves were not clear and they helped us to focus and get more clarity in our search. They were honest in telling us which location will best suit us. We finally bought a house through them, it is the best layout, great upgrades and best location we could ask for. Definitely recommend them.

The McDowell Team is in that special class of agents that truly know their business, their geography, market conditions, and the importance of great customer service. Most importantly, their word means something. They met every commitment made to us. They have a "concierge" approach towards their clients. We strongly recommend and urge anyone looking for a team that gets it to call the McDowell Real Estate Group. As everyone knows, there are a lot of real estate agents in the market willing to help homeowners buy or sell properties. As in any field, there are only the very few that can consistently rise to the top of their profession and deliver their best in guiding, supporting and servicing their clients.

I have built and sold houses including two in Golden Eagle in Pleasanton and in the process I have dealt with a lot of Realtors. Your efforts were at the top. I got more for my properties in these transactions in this down market than I expected and I couldn’t be more pleased.
When we recently needed an agent to sell the house, we looked to the McDowell Real Estate Group to manage the transaction. As we had already moved into a new home located over an hour away, we needed agents who could be "hands on": not just have good connections with landscapers, repair people, stagers, etc., but also handle scheduling those people and letting them into the house. They took care of everything from getting the house ready for sale, to listing and showing, to negotiating and closing the deal, and even finding an estate sale company to sell a number of items we didn't need any longer. They had good advice about pricing, made sure the listing and the house looked very appealing, and ran an open house that resulted in 8 offers. We sold the house for well over the asking price within 2 days of the open house! We highly recommend them, and would definitely work with them again.
I've worked with Peter for 7 years and their clients LOVE them. Everything they do to operate their business is professional and its obvious at the close of escrow when all parties are beyond satisfied. I would serve as a reference for this team anytime!!
Being in the sales and marketing field myself, I have always found that doing what you say you’ll do consistently over time will pay huge dividends. Peter and the McDowell Real Estate Group have never let me down. I only wish that you could sell property in Colorado so that I could have the pleasure of working with you again.
As a successful Mortgage Broker in the Bay Area, I have access to a multitude of Real Estate Agents in the surrounding area, many of whom are my clients. I chose the McDowell Real Estate Group to sell my own home, and would use them again in any transaction I am personally involved with.
Whether you are buying or selling, and I have worked with them on both sides, they make a stressful process enjoyable! They are great at advising sellers on showing your home. If you are buying, they are willing to show you properties near and far. Best of all, they make themselves available when it fits your schedule, even on their birthday!
From the moment we met them, we knew that we could trust their expertise and experience. Knowing that we wanted the process expedited, Peter and Mari worked quickly to present our home to potential buyers. They came equipped with many media marketing tools and ideas, and offered sound advice on how to best show the home. Communication was clear to us on almost a daily basis. We knew where we stood at all times. The McDowell Team was able to negotiate a higher sales amount than the original listing price. We are planning on using Peter and Mari again in another year to sell our other home in San Jose.
