Reference Letter for Peter He as a Real Estate Partner
Dear Prospective Home Sellers/Buyers,
If you’re thinking about listing your home and you’re not sure which agent to list with, I am writing to give Peter He my highest recommendation. Peter possesses all the attributes necessary to be an excellent real estate agent and knows the market extremely well. What impressed me the most was his work ethic and willingness to do what it takes to put a plan into action without delay. He is open to suggestions and integrates them accordingly based on his experience. Peter speaks excellent English and Chinese allowing him to communicate effectively with both Chinese and English speaking buyers during all aspects of the buying process.
Peter fully understood my goal, tweaked our game plan accordingly and gave wise counsel along the way. We deployed an innovative off-market strategy to create a buzz and also to give preferential buyers a chance to get in before mass market exposure. This was only achievable as a result of Peter’s vast connections with local Canadian and foreign buyers as well as international foreign interests.
A key reason I chose Peter was to have mass market exposure in what some might call a stagnant Real Estate market. I was worried! My research showed that some homes had been sitting for many months to over a year and still were not selling. Being able to reach a vast diversity of potential buyers was paramount for me but also having the ability to reach buyers who weren’t necessarily affected by the recently imposed government and banking stressors was also key to a speedy sale. My particular situation required that I moved quickly and this strategy along with Peter’s expertise and vast network of potential buyers really paid off!
As a result my home ended up selling in only 3 days on the MLS and sold above market value setting a new high for homes on my street since the 2017 market peak.
The bottom line, like all home owners want when it comes time to selling their home, is to have a strategic partner like Peter who can operate at a high level of competence and effectiveness while possessing humility, integrity and grace. His top notch negotiation skills closed the deal better than I had expected so I was very happy with my experience and I believe you will enjoy working with Peter as I did.
Sincerely, Mark McNally
-Seller of 2197 Dunedin Road Oakville
2119 Dunedin Road has been on market since 2017. Three other Canadian and Chinese agents had tried since 2017 with no success, it had been listed and de-listed on-and-off the market for 6 times but it had been no luck. The major objections are there's only one bathroom for the 4 bedrooms upstairs, single car garage, located at the intersection of two busy roads, reverse pie shape lot...After we took over we found a direct buyer in a relatively short period of time and got the home sold at an amazing price.
We found buyers through our own buyers database and connections before we put a For Sale sign in front of the home! While many similar homes listing on market for many months with no move, this is not an easy thing to do, but we just did it!
We do not just list and wait for buyers, we work above and beyond MLS through many of our other resources, buyers' database to find you buyers.
We have lots of success on selling our own listings.
This home is very close to a main road and the rail track, there was another agent who was trying to sell it since last August and wasn't able to do so. The seller's employer reached me to assist the selling of this home. We made some minimal changes, including repainting the green garage doors, main doors to a more neutral color, and staged the whole home to be more homy and presentable. We put it on market close to the end of November, and we received offers just in a week, regardless the market had slowed down significantly in November and December. But the offer did not meet our expectation and the seller decided to wait.
In mid December we received another offer. After lots of back and forth negotiation, finally we got the best possible offer. The sold price is even better than the two other similar homes which are on the two recent sold homes in the middle of the street which are not close to the rail track and with even better conditions.

When we called Peter He to sell our home, we immediately got his full attention during the whole process, he is treating it exactly like selling his own home. Peter worked really hard to get our house ready for the market from touch-ups, fixing-up, cleaning-up to full staging and professional photos/videos... he turned the house to like a different one we almost couldn't recognize in a very short period of time.
This is definitely a tougher market, but Peter is persistently take the extra mile to market our home, besides broker showings he himself brought around 1/3 of the showings through the house. He put our home listings all over the place on the Chinese&English social medias and websites, he created a bi-lingual website for our home, and he has been doing open houses every Sat&Sun until our home is sold.
We're glad our home is sold at our satisfactory price in a relatively shorter period of time in the neighborhood. Peter is very knowledgable on the market and neighborhood, and his razor sharp negotiation skills are impressive. We're very pleased Peter's efforts and results and we'd definitely recommend Peter to anybody who is buying or selling.
