Word on the Street Is

Pete is one of those people who you talk to once and you immediately feel like you have been friends for a long time.  My husband and I started on this journey to buying a house.  Didn't know the first thing about it.  Pete was very professional, courteous, and always made us feel like we were his only clients.  He was always available to speak with us and answer any questions we had.  He went through the process with us every step of the way.  We found the house that we liked and wanted to buy and with Pete's help and his resources and expertise, we are now in our first home!  We not only gained a great real estate agent, we gained a friend.

Pete Diryawush was the perfect realtor for our home purchase.  We had a very challenging and complicated situation while trying to purchase a bank owned home.  Even though the owning bank was not cooperative Pete was very focused and spent many hours to make the deal happen.  We do not believe most realtors would have had the ability or drive to handle such a difficult purchase to conclusion.  Because of Pete, my wife and I are now living in our dream home.

- Edward and Carol Bellard

We were pleased to have Pete Diryawush as our Realtor. With his courteous, professional attitude, and enthusiasm in helping us find our dream house, the impossible became the reality.  We recommend him for your house hunting needs! Thank you Pete!

Where do we begin?  Pete is an awesome Realtor. We would not be where we are without him. We told him what we wanted and he did anything and everything to get it for us.  He remembered everything that we asked for, even the small details.  He would tour houses before us to make sure it was worth our time to look at it.  He was available at all times for us, whether it be a question, concern, or to look at a house.  He is very knowledgeable and knows all the ins and outs. He always kept us updated every time there was a change or information that we needed to know.  We now live in a beautiful house that has everything we asked for and more.  Pete is awesome, very professional and personable.  He puts everything into making your experience of buying a home great. We highly recommend him.  You will not be disappointed.

My husband and I were just looking into what the market was doing, not even sure we wanted to buy, but Pete helped us find the house we could not pass up!  He was so well informed and had an answer to any question we had.  He made the process (we purchased a short-sale home) clear and easy to understand, and even ended up helping the seller’s agent on several aspects of the process.  He was happily on-call for months, as we negotiated the best deal possible.  He was fantastic!  I recommend him to any friends who are looking at buying or selling.  And, he is fun and funny too!

 I am an investor who lives 3 hours away and Pete was wonderful to work with. Once he got a feel for what I was looking for he took the ball and ran with it. He was organized so when I came down to view homes he didn't waste my time. I never felt once that he was trying to push me into a purchase and at sometimes steered me away from a property not thinking it was in my best interest. He is the only person I would ever use as my Agent for his area.

 My wife and I were extremely impressed with Pete. He went above and beyond what a typical agent does. He never pressured us at any point, and was exceptional during our entire process. We also used the lender he suggested, and not only did we get a rock bottom rate, but he worked with our lender to get the best of everything. I would recommend Pete to anyone, and I will DEFINITELY use his services in the future. It was the smoothest home buying experience I've ever had. Thanks again to all at Simple realty! Honestly, my wife and I couldn't be happier.

I bought my 1st investment property in Stockton through Pete this year. I have found Pete is the most amazing agent ever! Pete is honest, straightforward, smart and really fun to work with. Most importantly he puts his client’s interests in front of his own. I had already put down an offer on another property when he told me about a great investment property. He didn’t mind the hassle of analysis on the property and paperwork, just to make sure I would get the right investment property. It only took me 2 week to rent the house out after the renovation. I am already getting return on my investment one and half month after I bought the house. It was a fantastic experience to work with him and I am planning to buy more properties through him. I would love to tell anyone how great he is but I hate the fact that I have to share him with his growing client tail. If you haven’t worked with Pete yet, please don’t so I can have more of his time. Those who are working with him already, I don’t need to convince you how great he is. He’s simply the best in the Central Valley.

Pete is the man!!! I still cannot believe I am sitting in my beautiful first home - thanks to Pete. You will hit it right off the bat with Pete, he is hysterically funny, honest, knowledgeable, kind, has a great memory and LISTENED to what kind of home we wanted. Pete always took the time to show us homes that we saw listed or if he saw a house that he thought would fit our family he would call and want to show us. He is amazing!!! I cannot say enough great things about him.  I would totally recommend Pete if you are looking to purchase a home.  My family thanks him from the bottom of our hearts!

 I am a real estate investor living in San Francisco and have been working with Pete for over two years now. In that time we have flipped eight homes and made substantial profit on each of our investments. Pete's extensive knowledge of the Northern California and the Bay Area markets has been vital to our financial success. We are continuing our investment plans for the next few years and Pete will be an instrumental part of our future ventures. Along the way Pete and I have developed a close friendship rather than just a business relationship. In all instances Pete's involvement has been more than just professional, it’s personal. He wants to see you succeed financially and has the knowledge and expertise to do so. I would highly recommend Pete to any potential real estate investors or home buyers/sellers as his knowledge, focus and determination are remarkable.

 -Kevin Bryon, San Francisco,CA.

Pete helped with short selling our last home. As soon as the process started, the banks STOPPED calling us and he was the main point of contact. My husband and I were really impressed with his knowledge in real estate and the way he handled the entire transaction. He gave us great advice and took care of all our needs. We highly recommend him.

Pete helped me buy a bank-owned home in 2007. I'm really happy with the location and condition of the house. I was ready to rush into a purchase, but he took the time to find a good deal for me. The first house I wanted was in worse condition and cost more, so I'm glad we held out for a better deal. He also got the seller to pay $5000 toward closing costs. Pete has great people skills and negotiating skills and is a pleasure to work with.

Pete is an excellent agent. His negotiating skills are first rate. He will get you the best deal possible.

Mr. Diryawush is a hard worker who assists his clients to find their dream home. I have enjoyed working with Mr. Diryawush as my husband and I searched for our second home and still keep in contact with him to this day, I would highly recommend him if you are looking for an easy going agent who works for his clients.

-Rachel Steffen, Modesto,CA.

 Pete is the BEST!!! simply said.... I found him after working with a bunch of lazy realtors who were too busy to help me get in my first house. Pete was great with the whole buying process, giving me the information I needed for a super smooth purchase in a tough market... Fast forward 4 years later and you'll find he's helped my family and friends purchase/sell 7 houses, all with fantastic service. Pete does nothing but look out for your best interest and centers his work ethic around customer service/satisfaction... something that's been forgotten in a lot of others. I can't recommend a person more, thanks Pete!!

- Steve Plante, Ceres,CA.

 Pete Diryawush represented as a broker/selling agent for my property in Stockton. I am extremely pleased with his prompt response, professionalism and negotiation skills. Pete is a down-to-earth guy who went out of his way in making sure the process was smooth and issues were handled quickly and promptly. If I ever have another opportunity to represent my real-estate interests - Pete stands top on my list. Pete - thank you for your patience and your extraordinary commitment to your profession.

Pete is Awesome Awesome Awesome......He went above and beyond what a typical agent does extremely impressed. He never pressured us at any point, and was exceptional during our entire process. I would recommend Pete to anyone, and I will DEFINITELY use his services in the future. Thanks again to all at Simple realty! Honestly.

Working with Pete to sell my home was nothing but a great experience. His professional and friendly attitude was present in all his contacts with me and prospective buyers. He worked hard in his efforts to show my home at open houses and in listings. I was resent on a few occasions when he showed my home and he was friendly and professional to prospective buyers. I will continue to use Pete and his company in the future and recommend him to others!

-Carla Castro, Modesto CA.

Due to financial circumstances, I recently had to sell my home as a Short Sale transaction. Fortunately, I was referred by a good friend to Pete Diryawush. From our initial contact, Pete made me feel at ease and walked me through the process. Pete and his team were always very professional, responded immediately to all my questions, and they always kept me updated with regards to the bank and potential buyers. I truly felt they went above and beyond my expectations. I would definitely recommend Pete to all of my family and friends for any real estate transactions.

  -Paul Fong,  Stockton, CA.

Pete represented me as both buyer and seller. He worked hard to get me the best deal possible and became a good friend in the process. I would recommend him without hesitation.

-Brian Lung,  Tracy, CA.

Pete's a great realtor. The only downside is he is so good, he is in high demand. Sometimes he may be a few minutes late, but if you can spare the extra time: 1. He'll make it up to you and 2. He'll get you into the house you want at the lowest amount the buyers willing to agree too. He is very knowledgable to multiple different types of loans and has a great understanding of the law side of real estate. If this is your first home or tenth home, you're likely to learn something new to ease the process of buying a home.
