Peter Locke has been rated by 10 customers


“Peter Locke has been terrific to work with. We've known him for a few years and have done four transactions with him (buying, selling, and renting out property). He is highly knowledgeable about the northern Virginia market and is honest with all of his opinions and valuations. He is very friendly, approachable and timely with his communications, and has made us feel at ease throughout our most recent experience of selling and purchasing a place simultaneously. Would definitely recommend to anyone thinking of buying or selling a home in this area. ”
Kan & Jeff Gianattasio (Seller)
“We knew Peter personally and felt very comfortable working with him. We were very happy with Peter's performance. Peter was always there to discuss the sale at any time of day. He guided us through a few bumps in the road and it concluded in a successful transaction. We highly recommend Peter to anyone looking for a competent client-focused realtor. You won't regret it.”
Erin and Robert Miller, Charlotte, NC (Seller)
“Peter really went above and beyond to help my wife and I sell our property. He was easy to communicate with and very responsive throughout the week and even on weekends. He kept us informed and updated on the selling and closing process and helped work around our busy schedules. I will highly recommend Peter to any friends and relatives in need of a realtor in the future. ”
Matthew Sarmiento - Arlington, VA (Seller)
“My wife and I both agree that our experience working with Peter Locke could not have been better. Throughout the process we were impressed with his work ethic, the way he made both of us feel comfortable, his professionalism, and his attention to detail. From the beginning Peter worked with us to understand our situation and what we were trying to accomplish. He then used that understanding to help us find a home that is perfect for our needs and in a price range we can afford. After finding a home we liked, Peter’s knowledge and experience were invaluable in helping us to navigate the complex world of contracts, lenders, and everything associated with buying a home. I think the best recommendation I can give Peter is this: if he wasn’t so good at what he does I would hire him. ”
Jim Davis, Oakton Virginia (Buyer)
“Peter is excellent at what he does”
David Salem (Buyer)
“Peter Locke was recommended by a friend to sell my Town of Vienna house. He met with me to talk about Pricing my house competitively with the market by looking at competitive house sales to price my house effectively and strategically. We talked at length about his services, an effective campaign to sell and most importantly how to prepare all of the necessary documentation to have an effective contract to allow me the greatest flexibility to buy a house out of state. Peter Locke worked tirelessly to stay in contact with the buyer once we entered contract to keep our transaction going as smoothly as possible. He and I spent a lot of time maximizing my ability to buy a house out of state so that I will be able to transition smoothly from Virginia to New York. I was able to buy a fantastic house in New York. Of course I recommend Peter Locke as an agent. At the end of the day I was able to get the terms I was looking for to sell and get to closing on time.”
Charles Rendleman, Town of Vienna VA (Seller)
“My wife sold her condo in Arlington and had used the USAA Mover's Advantage program and interviewed one agent prior to selecting Peter Locke. Peter was hands down the winner. He presented a clear plan and communicated exactly how he would get the property sold. He is affable and knowledgeable and is persistent. My wife got the asking price for her condo and we decided to use him to help us find a house. Finally he helped me sell the townhouse. We really appreciated the lengths he was willing to go to to help us out. Peter helped me get an inspection done on a water heater that had to be replaced on the townhouse just as I was moving out. He met the inspector there when I couldn't. He also went to Home Depot and bought some new numbers for the house since the HOA inspection indicated they were weathered. I just appreciated that he wasn't just there to collect a commission at the end of the sale but he really cared about how it affected me and my wife. He took it more personal than other agents I've met.”
Fred Olchowski, Arlington, VA (Seller)
“Lucky I ran into Peter. Excellent treatment throughout the process. Arlington is a unique market, it is best to use a broker like Peter who knows the market, the process, and has the connections to expedite the process to get what you want. Peter was patient enough to educate me on the market so when I walked into my place when it came on the market I knew it was the right one without any hesitation. Peter surpassed even my lofty expectations!”
Mike - Arlington, VA (Buyer)
