Chief Revenue Officer at Magnite

We are very grateful for the opportunity to work with Tregg and Peter on the sale of our home. We got to know Tregg a few years ago through his and Peter’s sponsorship of our neighborhood school fundraisers. His kind and calm demeanor were so refreshing and when we considered selling our home in Sunset Park, we knew Tregg would be our first call. Upon our initial meeting with Tregg and Peter, we were immediately impressed with their appreciation for details, professionalism, and market acumen. They were incredibly thoughtful and thorough in explaining the selling process and detailed on what their team would do to help increase awareness for our home. They were quick and efficient with getting our home listed in just a matter of days and we had offers within 24 hours of listing.

During escrow, Tregg and Peter never missed a beat. They were always one step ahead and effortlessly handled any sticking points and negotiations, with our best interests at the center. We couldn’t be happier with their level of professionalism and expertise. With their guidance and experience, the sale of our home set new records for Sunset Park—a plus for us, and the neighborhood! We enthusiastically recommend Tregg and Peter for any real estate needs. They’re one of the most honest, patient, and considerate real estate agents we’ve ever had the pleasure of meeting and working with.

We were very impressed with Tregg Rustad and Peter Maurice. They were so helpful in giving us guidance through the process of getting our house ready to sell. When it came time to put the house on the market, their expertise and knowledge of the market really showed through. Selling a house during a pandemic had a whole different set of issues and they handled it professionally and smoothly. Tregg’s calm demeanor was very comforting during this unusual time to sell a house. His negotiating skills helped us close the sale and were greatly appreciated. We could tell that he really cared about doing the best job possible and that he really enjoys his work. They work with a great team and everyone answered all our questions and took the time to explain each step of the whole process.

Trust and integrity are the first words that come to mind regarding our representation by Peter and Tregg in the selling of our house in Santa Monica. Their expertise is priceless; we knew we were in the best hands possible and that they had our back. Peter and Tregg's ability to negotiate is beyond reproach and we always understood their reasoning. We were included in the decision-making process, but always saw the logic of their negotiations. If it were not for them, I'm sure we would not have had the success we had. Not to mention their professionalism and their beautiful presentation of the house, from printed materials to invaluable advice regarding staging. They are the whole package.

It is a pleasure to report our complete satisfaction in our association with Tregg Rustad and Peter Maurice for the sale of our home. Their quiet professionalism and steady support through all stages of the process were deeply appreciated, as was the good work of their team. Almost as important, we have not only enjoyed working with them, we have liked knowing them. We were flattered by their response to our home on first viewing and were impressed by their tact and taste in suggesting ways its presentation might be improved for showing. Their suggestion for pricing was perfect and resulted in three substantial offers within the first week. Tregg’s attention to detail and personable style was put to the test with an outstanding permit on our 30-year old remodel.

During this time, without being asked to do so, he remained in regular contact with our realtor® in northern CA., where we were in contract negotiations to purchase another home. We are grateful for having chosen this incredible team and Rodeo Realty.

Peter and Tregg and the team they have assembled have handled the selling of our Santa Monica home and the purchase negotiations for our new house with fantastic style and intelligence. They have so effectively embraced conventional and new marketing media with getting our message out to the correct group of potential buyers while we feel eliminating the idle tire-kickers. These guys were always available for our questions and clarification and kept our part of the two-way conversation. Getting involved with Peter and Tregg and Rodeo was our best real estate decision.

I would like to offer my enthusiastic recommendation of the team of Maurice & Rustad to everyone looking for real estate representation. As the owner of personal and investment residential real estate, I find these two gentlemen indispensable allies in my transactions and have yet to find their equal when working with real estate professionals out-of-state. Peter’s and Tregg’s substantial experiences in the field are reflected in their fluency in real estate procedures, market trends, contract strategies, and the “nuts and bolts” of the deal that always seem so foreign to me. I feel, however, their greatest strength lies in combining that detailed knowledge with an intuitive feel for human behavior and the subtle art of successful negotiation. Simply put, they have the best instincts in town! Over the course of our association, Peter and Tregg have guided me through two very challenging …

I feel, however, their greatest strength lies in combining that detailed knowledge with an intuitive feel for human behavior and the subtle art of successful negotiation. Simply put, they have the best instincts in town! Over the course of our association, Peter and Tregg have guided me through two very challenging deals where I was on the “wrong” side in terms of power; the first was successfully purchasing a home in a seller’s market where we were one of 14 offers on the house, the second successfully closing the sale of income property in a buyer’s market complicated by the 2008 housing meltdown. In that case, for-sale properties were languishing all over town, but Peter’s and Tregg’s savvy assessment of the situation and smart course of action was responsible for garnering five offers within a week of listing. They studiously advised me throughout a difficult escrow that repeatedly threatened to fall apart, and ultimately achieved a purchase price in line with my initial expectations. I couldn’t have kept that escrow on track without them. I’m looking forward to the next occasion when I can be represented by Peter Maurice and Tregg Rustad, and encourage you to take advantage of this talented team as well.

We have bought one home and sold two homes with Peter and Tregg, and all three experiences have been outstanding. They make a great team and bring extensive knowledge and strategic expertise. On top of that, they are extremely responsive, impeccably diligent and they work with an amazing team who can turn around a property from unfurnished to beautifully staged and ready to sell in no time. I definitely recommend working with them!

Dream Team! Purchasing a home can be stressful. Peter and the team at Maurice & Rustad were a dream team. From the moment we had our first conversation with Peter, he and his team utilized their extensive knowledge of the market to help us narrow options. Their sense of urgency enabled us to identify the ideal property and Peter's expertise in the market helped us negotiate a fair price in spite of daunting seller challenges. Peter was data-based, principled, knowledgeable, and solution-oriented while always ensuring we were on the same page. The professionalism didn't stop once the deal was done. His A-Team ensured we were supported after the sale. We've bought a number of properties over the last 20 years but Peter and the team at Maurice & Rustad have been the best! Highly recommended.

Peter Maurice helped us sell our house. We couldn't have been happier. He did a great job of marketing the house, kept the escrow process moving, communicated effectively, and got us exactly the type of return we were hoping for. As a former lawyer, Peter is a strong negotiator. He also understands the market. My wife and I can't recommend him highly enough.

Tregg was everything one might hope for in a partner through the sale of my previous home and the purchase of a new home as I downsized this year. His guidance to get my previous house ready for listing was spot on, and the vendors he helped bring in were all at the top of their game while still being reasonably priced. After making his recommended upgrades, we listed for $200k more than I had expected, and the final sales price was 6% over the list. As I scoured a very wide area of Los Angeles looking for my new home, Tregg was there at every turn, providing extensive neighborhood expertise no matter where I looked. He provided extremely helpful guidance as I got ready to make an offer on the home that I really wanted - resulting in the acceptance of my offer in a multiple offer situation - and continued to help me negotiate through an escrow period that involved several rounds of selle…

Tregg is patient, kind, steadfast, and incredibly diligent, all while being tough as nails on your behalf when he needs to be. I can't recommend Tregg or his team more highly!

Thank you so very much for your wonderful work in both selling our home and helping us with the purchase of our new home. Throughout the entire process of buying and selling these houses, we felt that we were in good hands - that you kept our best interests at heart and provided excellent advice at all stages. There are several aspects of our experience that made us want to write this letter, so allow us to list a few. First of all, when we initially spoke with you we were looking for another Realtor® as our current Realtor® wasn't providing the level of assistance that we expected and needed. We were frustrated and felt like we might not find a suitable new home once we sold our house, and with a newborn, we did not want to be forced to rent. Then we were referred to you by a friend. You eliminated our concerns by finding us a home before selling our first house. When we made a very las…

We were frustrated and felt like we might not find a suitable new home once we sold our house, and with a newborn, we did not want to be forced to rent. Then we were referred to you by a friend. You eliminated our concerns by finding us a home before selling our first house. When we made a very last-minute decision to bid on it, we truly knew that you both were the ultimate professionals as you provided advice and assistance while traveling for a family emergency. Buying before selling did make us nervous, but we felt as comfortable as one can in that situation because we knew that you would sell our house and sell it quickly. And you did - in only 3 days! While the escrow process in purchasing our new home was anything but easy, you both helped mediate all difficulties with ease and immediacy. Further, without being asked to do so you negotiated a partial refund of the escrow fee for us given that there had been so many errors made on the part of the seller's escrow company. Even after both real estate deals were completed and we had fully moved into our new home, you called to ensure that we were happy and to find out if we needed assistance with anything else. What fabulous service! Without hesitation, we would highly recommend you to our friends and family, and will certainly call on your services when we buy or sell in the future!

Tregg was extremely professional, courteous, and knows his stuff! I would definitely use Tregg and Peter again and fully recommend their services. We sold our home in Sunset Park and their team knows the market and area well and we had one open house and a few private showings. We were in escrow within 12 days!

Thank you so much for your tremendous work on the sale of our home last month. I know we’ve told you this, but it bears putting in writing that your excellent advice allowed us to sell quickly and for top dollar. You knew the right price to generate an amazing level of interest, and your sales strategy is incomparable. When we rapidly entered the shocking multiple offer situation, after just days on the market, you deftly managed the eight potential buyers and their agents to get us the best possible deal with not just one but several amazing, solid backup offers at the same price. We never imagined that we’d end up with $106,000 over the asking price. Never. It’s also worth mentioning that thanks to you; our house never looked better than when it was on the market because of your staging advice. The articles you provided and the beautification/de-cluttering sessions were invaluable. We …

It’s also worth mentioning that thanks to you; our house never looked better than when it was on the market because of your staging advice. The articles you provided and the beautification/de-cluttering sessions were invaluable. We know that this helped the sales process immeasurably. Finally, your experience, energy, and professionalism are truly unmatched. We always felt well-represented, protected, and taken care of during the sales, negotiation, inspection, and escrow process. Furthermore, you always anticipated and solved any potential problems, typically before they actually became problems, removing the stress from what can be a pretty stressful time. There is a reason we came back to you for this transaction after having worked with you before. We knew we’d get excellent advice and service, and we were not disappointed.

Peter and Tregg were terrific on all fronts in the sale of the 58-year-old home in which my siblings and I grew up, but what most distinguishes them in their field, as far as I’m concerned, is their complete integrity in every aspect of their work – including just as straightforward, uncolored advice before they got us the listing we were after. When I recommended them to my family of mine, I felt they were doing me a big favor enabling me to introduce my relatives to a trusted resource.

Peter and his team are the best in the industry. He navigated us through our first home buying experience with ease and a wealth of knowledge that is rarely found. He executed every aspect of the transaction seamlessly and I truly feel we couldn't have been in better hands. We will use him for all our real estate needs and would recommend him whether you are looking to buy or sell. Thank you, Peter.

It’s rare these days to be able to write a letter of praise rather than of complaint. I’m writing to let you know how impressed we were after working with Tregg Rustad. After we decided to buy a duplex, we felt that Tregg would be the perfect person to have as our agent. We knew he was smart, practical, and, very importantly, unflappable. During the production, he was always the one with the coolest head. We felt this quality would be important in our dealings. We were right. Over the years I’ve been involved in several dozen real estate transactions. I have never had an agent who was as responsive, as understanding, and as calming as Tregg. I’m convinced that our deal might have gone south with another agent. He held things together and saw us through each and every problem. And now, a month after escrow has closed, he is still helping us clean up some odds and ends. Do what you must to…

I cannot think of a better agent and person to have represented us in our transaction than Peter Maurice. We’ve gone through 3 different sales over the years, I cannot imagine any better advocate than Peter in a transaction. Peter, you are really a driving force and offer the best strategy in the business. You really think of everything – you are able to digest so much information and then solve the issues. I trust and appreciate your business judgment implicitly, and thank you for all your help and dedication to us over the years.

We cannot recommend Tregg Rustad highly enough. He has all the qualities you would look for in a real estate agent. He is intelligent, responsive, patient, calm, knowledgeable, experienced, and easy to work with. We initially called Tregg because he was recommended to us by two friends he represented in the purchase of their respective homes. Both friends had nothing but great things to say about him. One friend noted that he advised her to get specific inspections during escrow based on the year the house was built and the area it was located in, which ultimately saved her money in repairs. The other friend found herself in a bidding war and Tregg advised her to offer less than she was willing to offer and she got the house. This all sounded good to us so we called Tregg and were not disappointed. When we met with Tregg we wanted to purchase a house in a particular neighborhood that was…

The other friend found herself in a bidding war and Tregg advised her to offer less than she was willing to offer and she got the house. This all sounded good to us so we called Tregg and were not disappointed. When we met with Tregg we wanted to purchase a house in a particular neighborhood that was out of our price range. He showed us the current market data in that neighborhood and explained that we could try to find something that would work but that it would be difficult given the prices. He also showed us a number of other good neighborhoods to consider. Ultimately, we decided to make an offer on a house in one of the other neighborhoods. It was a great house and Tregg had visited many homes with us in that particular neighborhood. However, when the time came to put the deposit down, we decided we really did not want to live in that neighborhood after all. My husband and I both called Tregg and he patiently talked to us at length about our issues with the area and ultimately advised us not to move forward if our hearts were not in it. Although Tregg had accompanied us to several houses in that area and taken the time to write an offer on our behalf, he gave no indication that he was bothered in the least and continued to help us search. Ultimately, we did find a house in the neighborhood we wanted and Tregg fought to get us the best price we could possibly get and to get credits for issues we discovered during the inspection period. He was very skilled at negotiating while maintaining a good relationship with the selling agent. In addition, he had a wealth of knowledge about what inspections to get and advised us to do inspections we might not otherwise have done. I asked him many questions during escrow about the house, permits, zoning, title, and the escrow process generally and found him to be very knowledgeable in all respects. He returned phone calls promptly and was on top of everything every step of the way. He made sure all parties (the sellers, the sellers’ agent, the escrow officer, the title officer, the inspectors, and the lender) were getting the job done in an efficient and timely manner. In addition, my husband referred Tregg to another party to represent that party in the sale of their family home and he was equally great as a listing agent. He sold the home quickly, efficiently, and at a great price. In summary, if you are looking to buy or sell a home, call Tregg!

Like many first-time homeowners, I was pretty clueless when I started the process of buying a house. Not only did I need to educate myself, but I also needed to get my out-of-state father up to speed on the LA market. This was a real wildcard in the process: while I was so incredibly lucky to have my dad to help me with the down payment, he can be a little hard to deal with, think everyone is out to screw him in financial transactions. Let's just say he had a hard time wrapping his head around the price of real estate in the area, which didn't exactly make us the easiest of clients to work with. When I found my dream house, I honestly thought it was a lost cause given his point of reference. Enter Peter.

Let's just say he had a hard time wrapping his head around the price of real estate in the area, which didn't exactly make us the easiest of clients to work with. When I found my dream house, I honestly thought it was a lost cause given his point of reference. Enter Peter. Peter was beyond patient with both of us, spending hours on the phone with us, explaining the local market, how the home buying process is unique in LA vs. other areas in the country, and overall what to expect. We are the type of people who read every line in a contract, so it was invaluable having an ex-lawyer by our side to explain every clause. Given that our deal was much smaller than most of the transactions he's involved in, I kinda couldn't believe how much time he spent with us and how much he cared that we were comfortable moving forward. When multiple offers came in on the house (5! and 2 cash!), he not only expertly negotiated on our behalf, fully explaining to us all of our options, but he helped us keep our emotions in check and act rationally. He was never pushy but did everything he could to make sure we understood what it would take to win the house. Throughout the disclosure, appraisal, inspection process, Peter was super responsive and literally seemed to know everything under the sun about the house. This was super helpful during the inspections - again, I was clueless about what to look for, but Peter was there the entire time pointing things out to me, giving me advice and tips, and asking the inspectors pointed questions. We were equally impressed by the different contractors he recommended for inspections: they were all thorough, easy to understand, and super pro. Whenever there was a bump in the road - with the mortgage lenders, the appraisers, the sellers, etc. - Peter was a fierce advocate on my behalf. He was always on it, usually before I even knew there was an issue. As someone who hates conflict and is susceptible to caving under pressure - this was instrumental in making sure I got the best deal possible. Overall, we feel incredibly indebted to Peter and his team. We love our house so much and basically would have never gotten it if it wasn't for Peter's expertise and caring. He's No.1 in my book - I trust him more than I trust my hairdresser. (And that says a lot). While I can't imagine leaving this house right now, when the time comes, we'll most certainly work with Peter again.

My husband and I have worked with Peter since 2011. In that time we have successfully sold and acquired multiple properties in the Los Angeles area. In each transaction, Peter's commitment to the process has been nothing short of impressive. In our experience, Peter wants to make sure his clients are educated about the market and the steps of buying and selling property. This has been invaluable because it's helped us make decisions with confidence. We recently completed a 1031 exchange. Competition in the market made closing on an exchange property during our allotted time proved very challenging. We were in and out of multiple properties due to the competition. Peter's attention to our needs was outstanding. He helped us wade through the process until we found a property that fit our needs beautifully. Peter's attention to detail in a purchase process is also worth commenting upon. He …

We strongly recommend Peter Maurice. After 6 successful deals in 5 years, we can't imagine working with anyone else.

After buying and selling a few properties, I can say without a doubt that Tregg is by far the best Realtor® I have ever had the pleasure of working alongside. I have been represented by Tregg for both the purchase and sale of my home and I would recommend him absolutely and without reservation. He is thorough, detailed, knowledgeable, honest, professional, savvy, and very experienced. He has a thorough understanding of the processes of both selling and buying a home, and he personally manages all of the inspections, upgrades, paperwork, and escrow details himself. During the recent sale of my house, he worked side-by-side with a stager to help prepare my house for the market. Even though I was living in the property, and I thought it was show-ready, they swapped out furniture, redid landscaping, painted rooms, added doors – really a mini flip to position the house the best possible way. …

The result was amazing. My photos turned out better than expected and during the first two open houses, he had over 250 visitors. 25! Immediately after our first open house, we began to receive offers, one of which was beyond what I ever thought I would get for my house. I was ready to accept it. However, Tregg, as a true advocate, suggested we wait. I was shocked. Most agents would have suggested I accept the incredible offer we had. I listened to Tregg and let him do his thing. This resulted in more offers and a final sales price that was 13% over my list price and $50,000 more than the offer I was ready to accept only a few days before. Yet he wasn’t doing. During escrow, he managed the process so I never had to worry. He negotiated the buyer’s inspections with skill only a highly experienced agent could do, he continually updated me and always had my best interest in mind. I’ve worked with a number of real estate agents in many different parts of the country and I can’t say enough about Tregg. He is truly the best I have worked with. I will undoubtedly be using him again when the need arises. The agent you hire can really make a difference. Hire Tregg.

Peter is the best real estate agent I've ever worked with. His knowledge of Los Angeles coupled with his background in law makes him the perfect agent. I will always take any advice from this expert on real estate. He has made all my LA real estate transactions and I would recommend him 100% and I'm not one to recommend very many people.

Tregg is a brilliant Realtor® who consistently delivers spectacular results. He has a powerful grasp of the market, understands real property and the myriad risks involved with transacting and owning property, and is an expert negotiator. Tregg always exceeds my expectations. I trust that he has my best interests in mind because he knows that his clients’ satisfaction is the most valuable asset of his business. Tregg is a real estate hall of Famer and an absolute joy to have on my team.

Head of Marketing, Signature Creative

We can't say enough good things about Tregg Rustad. My wife and I were pregnant with twins and we needed to sell our current residence and buy a new one quickly to fit all of the new arrivals. Tregg listened, provided guidance and expertise with both care and professionalism unmatched by any agent we have worked with before. He helped us expertly navigate the challenging Los Angeles marketplace, sold our existing house at top dollar in weeks, and helped lock down a great price on the new house, negotiating with the owners to the very end. Working with Tregg not only do you get quick responses, attention to detail, and knowledgeable perspectives, you also really feel like he is in your corner. We trust Tregg!

President, Raise & Shine Blinds

Peter is the best in the business and a pleasure to work with. He is incredibly organized and knowledgeable and made sure that we were fully informed of any issues, costs, benefits regarding the property, and the steps and documentation required for each step of the way, from the bidding process up until closing. His level of professionalism and experience is irreplaceable and we were fortunate to have him in the lead.

Tregg is an incredible agent from start to finish. Not only does he give excellent tips on preparing your house for sale but his astute knowledge of the market helps him price your home perfectly. Once in escrow, regardless of whether you are a seller or buyer, his expertise through the sale is fantastic. I have done many transactions with Tregg with great results! Look no further for your needs, Tregg is your guy!

Kurt Kodama

Tregg and Peter have represented me on the sale of two homes. They are both professional, attentive, trustworthy, and knowledgeable. A definite recommendation if you are in the market to purchase or sell your home.

I have worked with Peter now on two properties. I can't imagine buying a property without his counsel. He is a buyer's rep and never loses sight of that. He convinced me to do multiple inspections in order to bring the price down. And those multiple inspections brought the price to a place where I could complete the transactions (I was tentative about spending the money for these inspections). He was available to me at all times during escrow and since escrow has closed (6 weeks), he has continued to be available to me for advice as to everything from contracting to working with tenants. I have referred multiple family members and friends to Peter and his team and all have been happy with his work. In my family alone, my parents, my sister and I have all purchased properties sold one family property using Peter and his team. In each transaction, Peter was accessible and professional. I'm…

I'm sure I have more property purchases in the future with Peter Maurice.

We just celebrated our third successful deal represented by Tregg Rustad, and I can honestly say none of them would have had such positive outcomes – or perhaps closed at all – without his guidance and expertise. Real estate transactions bring myriad strategic and emotional challenges, and Tregg has always stepped up to be whatever’s needed: deft negotiator, empathetic sounding board, enthusiastic cheerleader, calming voice of reason and we’ve needed them all! Because these transactions blur the line between business and personal, your best advocate is a Realtor® who combines skill and experience with an open, caring heart. We are so fortunate to have Tregg on our side, and you’d better believe he’ll be our first call the next time we’re even thinking about buying or selling real estate!

Tregg and Peter, have been outstanding in the two deals we have done together. The team is responsive to your needs throughout and detail-oriented all the way through closing. For any future deals, I will certainly seek their services again.

Jon Kelble

VP of Post Production, Blueline Finishing

After a failed previous attempt at selling my house, Peter was able to sell quickly and for a great price! His entire team is respectful and hard-working. If you are looking for real estate help, look no further. Peter is honest and trustworthy and made my second time around a night and day difference from my first attempt.

Tregg Rustad has been my Realtor® for 16 years and I have purchased and sold three homes with him. It wasn’t just a coincidence that I’ve worked with Tregg for all of these purchases and sellers exchanges. He is the consummate professional and is beyond engaged in the selling or purchasing of your home. Tregg is personable, intuitive, attentive, responsive and you always have the feeling you are his only client and the most important. Regardless of the size of the home you are selling or purchasing, Tregg treats you with the highest respect and treats everyone from the other party’s agent to business managers, to inspection personnel with patience, kindness and refers equally professional people to carry out these tasks. He is keen on the best times to sell, buys and how best to appeal to the other seller or buyer's needs to make the sale the best for his clients and all parties involved…

Extraordinarily principled and kind is a rare and treasured find in the Los Angeles Real Estate market and Tregg is truly a gift to work with if you are lucky enough to get to.

Dear Peter, You have no idea (or maybe you do) what a relief this is for me. It’s like exiting schizophrenia rehab with a clean bill of health. I must admit, however, that I will miss corresponding with you. You have a sensibility that is rarely encountered: comforting, and at the same time strongly rational. Let’s vow to keep in touch. With infinite gratitude.

I am always impressed by your attention to detail and the care you have for your clients. It’s clear that you care about what is best for them, whether or not the deal closes.

I have been represented by Tregg for both the purchase and sale of my home and I would recommend him absolutely and without reservation. He is thorough, detailed, knowledgeable, honest, professional, savvy, and reasonable. He has a thorough understanding of the processes of both selling and buying a home, and he personally attends to all of the inspections, upgrades, paperwork, escrow details himself. He is always available and extremely nice. I can’t say enough about him and again I will undoubtedly be using him again when the need arises.

Brigitte Wright

Peter, thank you for your exceptional work on the sale of my home. Your superlative staging advice in getting my home ready was unique. Your devotion to detail, knowledge, dedication to the correct marketing and price plus a keen sense of all aspects of the process are unmatched. You allowed me to sell quickly with multiple offers and to ultimately sell for much higher than the asking price within a week of going on sale. This needed to happen since I had already bought another home in Nashville! You sold me this home 15 years ago with the same dedication. Your ability, creative insights, talents, expertise in crafting deals, and dedication to your clients are unparalleled. You are truly an original! No one out there compares or comes close to the service you and your team provide.

Tregg Rustad is the epitome of a great real estate agent. After working with another agent for one year we looked long and hard for a new agent that was professional, smart, patient, honest, hard-working, a good negotiator, and most importantly– trustworthy. Tregg came highly recommended by a close friend of ours. After meeting with Tregg for the first time, we knew he was going to be the right agent for us. We were right, after a little over eight months we bought a home. We are having a housewarming party next week and Tregg was the first person on the guest list. Real estate agents make money if you buy or sell your home. They don’t make money showing you homes, doing research, calling agents, calling mortgage brokers, scheduling inspectors, etc. Nevertheless, Tregg did all of this and more. He never pressured us to buy. In fact, it was not rare for Tregg to talk us out of a place, be…

We were right, after a little over eight months we bought a home. We are having a housewarming party next week and Tregg was the first person on the guest list. Real estate agents make money if you buy or sell your home. They don’t make money showing you homes, doing research, calling agents, calling mortgage brokers, scheduling inspectors, etc. Nevertheless, Tregg did all of this and more. He never pressured us to buy. In fact, it was not rare for Tregg to talk us out of a place, because he just didn’t think it was right for us. We were not easy clients! There were about six people involved in our decision to buy a home. Tregg spoke to all six people regularly, even when he was on vacation. Moreover, we were not the most decisive clients. We were in escrow on multiple homes which we backed out of before we finally settled on the right home. Once we finally found the right place, thanks to Tregg, our escrow period moved very smoothly. However, in the eleventh hour, there was a huge issue (which had nothing to do with Tregg). At this point, Tregg went from a great agent to an amazing agent. This “issue” demanded endless phone calls, letters, inspections, meetings, etc. to get the sale of the home to close on time (or at all for that matter). Tregg made the sale happen and he made it happen on time! We live in Southbay which is not even Tregg’s area of expertise (we originally planned on buying in West LA); nevertheless, we would never even think of using another agent when we sell our current home or buy our next home. In looking for homes for just about two years we met a lot of real estate agents. Many of them are totally unprofessional shady characters! Tregg is a breath of fresh air and truly fantastic at his job. And, he cares about you and your interests! Oh, by the way, he is a total closet contractor and interior decorator. Thus, if you want ideas about remodeling, furnishing, painting, etc. Tregg is your guy!

It was absolutely wonderful working with Tregg on the sale of my home. He and his entire team were consummate professionals. They were extremely responsive to any question or concerns and had endless patience with me, understanding that the sale was both exciting and difficult as I had lived in my home for many years. The entire process was seamless from start to finish. My house sold within the first week and managed to break a record for the area thanks to Tregg’s careful handling of the presentation and process. I can’t thank him enough, I highly recommend him and his team A+++! I would definitely work with them again on a purchase or sale in the future!

Michael Graham

Creative Producer, Hulu

We loved Tregg as our Realtor®. He was not trying to push us into any houses or tell us to continue to move up our offer. Every time we put in an offer on a house he told us what he thought it would sell for and he was always right. One of the most important aspects of Tregg was his team of inspectors. If they had not been so thorough we would have purchased a house at the top of our budget with a massive mold problem. You can trust him and his team to work for you rather than working for his percentage.

Meg Grant

My husband and I have bought and sold more than a dozen homes and had the good fortune to use Peter Maurice on four of our deals. He is so much better than any of the other real estate professionals we've worked with. For starters, he's a terrific writer and passionate about the story behind each property he handles, so he is able to exquisitely describe and market your home. He and his team are consummate professionals in handling each step of the process. While Peter has never made us feel pressured to be rushed or to accept or make an offer, he is a killer deal maker and has consistently gotten us the best price on both the sales and purchase ends of deals. He is the best of the best, and a terrific person to boot.

Jack Morris

Owner of C&C Jewelry

Tregg and his team are true professionals! They helped to make what could have been a difficult time for our family goes smoothly, and timely. No surprises and he coached us through the entire process. I live across the country, Tregg and his team kept me in the loop, and up to date through the entire process. I’ve sold several properties, this was the first time I really felt my agent had my best interest in mind. Every step of the way, from his first presentation on comps and history, to walking us through the final closing. Thank You Tregg and team.
