The McDowells were great to work with. They managed every step of the Compass Concierge program and our home looked incredible when it hit the market. Within the first week on the market, we received multiple offers above the asking price, and Peter was instrumental in negotiations, getting us the best sale price possible. This was our second time working with Peter and as long as we're in the Bay area, it won't be the last.

Home buying process can be a very demanding journey. You need someone who can be with you through that journey, giving you the right advice, helping you avoid making poor choices. Mari and Peter did exactly that for us. From the moment we met them, they were very generous with their time, gave us the right advice, and helped us through the process. They made the entire process seamless for us. At the end, we ended up buying a beautiful home that fit all our needs. We would recommend them, without second thoughts, for your home search.

Both Mari and Peter were incredible partners in the selling of our property. We were initially hesitant to put the property on the market at the end of the year and during the still-peaking pandemic. But we quickly realized that Mari and Peter were potent. consultative, and extremely well plugged into the East Bay. Their extended team of painters, stagers, and repair folks was top-notch but well priced. At the end of the day, we received over 20 offers within the first 7 days, sold for over 8% asking, and the entire process with smooth and easy thanks to Mari and the team. Not only would not hesitate to work with them again but look forward to doing so if given the chance.

It was truly a pleasure working with Peter and Mari. They provided us with sound, research, and experience-informed recommendations regarding properly pricing our home and preparing it for sale. We were moving out of state and were traveling a great deal during the preparation/staging period as well as during the escrow process. Peter met with inspectors and stagers on our behalf, and interfaced with contractors doing repairs in our absence, ensuring that all was going according to our rather tight time schedule, all the while staying in constant communication with us. He and Mari oversaw the escrow process, ensuring that it kept on schedule and that we were able to review and electronically sign all necessary documents promptly even while we were out of town. Peter and Mari are consummate professionals, who conduct their business with impeccable ethical standards. They have built relati…

Peter and Mari are consummate professionals, who conduct their business with impeccable ethical standards. They have built relationships throughout the community, and have earned the respect of all of those with whom they work. We were proud to have them represent us, and have no doubt that their guidance and hard work were responsible for our very successful sale. And their diligence, graciousness, and sense of humor made the stress of selling our home melt away!

My fiancé and I accidentally stumbled upon Peter and his wife working at the restaurant underneath their office. And boy were we happy that we did. It almost seemed like fate that they would take care of us to do this homebuying process. Luckily for us, my fiancé's parents also Took a very large role in guiding us through this process. So between them Peter and the lender that you chose for us we had an all-world team! We have heard a lot of nightmare stories about the home buying process is and how much of a headache they can be. We didn't seem to get any of that working with them, maybe we're just lucky or an outlier but I think it speaks a lot for their work ethic and general knowledge of the overall process. For those who are interested in purchasing a home, I highly recommend sitting down with Peter his wife, and his lender to just listen to them. That's how it started for us, and n…

That's how it started for us, and no pressure informative meeting where we were able to questions and have them be answered honestly. We love our home we love our new city and couldn't imagine this process going any other way for us. Thank you again and when my fiancé and I want to our second home we will be working with Peter and his wife once again.

Peter and Mari McDowell make a wonderful team! They are both extremely knowledgeable and make the real estate process smooth and enjoyable. We have both bought and sold homes with Peter and Mari, and their guidance and familiarity with the real estate market are incomparable. With their assistance and expertise, we have bought and sold 2 homes in Pleasanton. The most recent experience was the sale of our home in August of this year. They did a great Market Analysis, the house presentation was impeccable, and their contacts for handymen, cleaners, and stagers became great resources. What really makes Peter and Mari exceptional is their genuine concern for their buyers and sellers; they are very real and always available. We highly recommend this outstanding team to help make your real estate experience as great as ours have been!
