Tregg + Peter, Pushing the Envelope of Conventional Real Estate:
We are a successful, locally-focused real estate team, known for our friendly, meticulous service. We have the international presence and marketing acumen of Rodeo Realty, and the flexibility, creativity and personal touch of a boutique agency. We love what we do and have worked hard to serve our clients for more than 40 combined years!
We understand and appreciate Santa Monica in a way only local residents can. Our passion and enthusiasm for all Santa Monica neighborhoods makes us not merely agents, but knowledgeable guides and advocates. We know the ins and outs of the neighborhoods, whether it be the best place to find a view home, a large lot or to walk for a cup of coffee — those not-so-small nuances that make south Santa Monica unique. We also can offer great recommendations for anything you can think of (restaurants, surf spots, contractors, paint colors, hikes). If you’re new to town we’ll enjoy imparting local secrets to you, and if you’ve been here for years we’ll compare notes!
While we love to enjoy the process, our priority is to uphold stellar professionalism, and to be fiercely protective of our clients’ best interests. We always bring honesty and fairness to our profession and during the advocacy of our clients’ goals. We will counsel and guide every step of the way, so that our clients can make informed decisions with a clear understanding of the consequences and potential outcome. Although we can’t eliminate all of the stressful moments that come up during transactions, you can be assured that we’re sweating the details so that you don’t have to.
