We recently had the opportunity to work with Pete on buying a home in Santa Cruz. We had very specific location requirements and Pete worked tirelessly to help us find a home in this very competitive market. What I appreciated most is that he worked to find options that were really something we could afford. I also appreciated Pete's attention to detail, and his knowledge of all of the rules, laws and things you just don't think about much unless you have recently purchased a house. Pete helped us to get a very nice home at a reasonable price, and made sure we were informed and guided throughout the entire purchasing process. Regards,Ron Isom
I recently had the great pleasure of working with Pete Pearson as my real estate agent for selling my home in Santa Cruz, CA. When I first was deciding on whether to rent or sell my home, I contacted Pete for advice. Because he works for Baily Properties (they not only provide real estate agents for buying and selling homes, but also have property rental management services), he was able to provide information on the pros and cons of selling verses renting. I reviewed the information, made the decision to sell, and chose Pete as my agent! Selling a home can be stressful but Pete was available from start to finish. He took care of every detail in the home-selling experience. He provided expert advice in how to best present my home and also had access to professional contractors to make the necessary changes. He was available to make calls, meet with contractors, and help facilitate all the details necessary in preparing my home for sale. He held open houses to the public and once a we were in contract with a buyer he handled all the details of the contract. I was very pleased that Pete kept me informed, up-to-date, and on-task during the whole process. He was easily accessible and was always positive. His knowledge of the Santa Cruz real estate market and home selling/buying process was thorough and complete. I definitely recommend Pete to anyone in the home selling or buying market as his calm demeanor and most importantly expert knowledge will be an asset to you. Thank you Pete!
Having lived in Santa Cruz for as long as we have, we have come to know quite a few realtors. When it came time to sell our property in Aptos, there was one realtor that immediately came to mind and we didn't hesitate to chose Pete Pearson. It is his honesty, integrity and calm demeanor as well as his vast knowledge and experience that stand out above the rest! We knew we could trust him with this very important event in our lives. From start to finish, there was nothing easy about the transaction, but we never lost faith that Pete could make it happen and he did! He definitely earned his commission and it was well worth it! We highly recommend Pete Pearson to handle any of your real estate needs and you can be confident you are in good hands with Pete!Scott and Sarah
You were recommended to me by an Investment Company that I had been working with regarding my finances and retirement planning. It was suggested that I would be best served in my retirement years by buying a home using a reverse mortgage. This company said that they had personally worked with Pete Pearson from the Santa Cruz Office of Bailey Real Estate and highly recommended that I call him.I am a single female in my retirement years and had never been through the process of buying a home by myself. The day Pete and I had our first meeting, I felt a sense of ease with his enthusiastic yet calm demeanor. I mentioned my hesitancy and fear of buying a home, much less buying with a reverse mortgage that I knew nothing about. I’ll never forget his words to me. “Terri, I am in this for the long haul. Even if it takes a year, I promise you that I will work with you to find a comfortable home that you will be happy with!”Pete was honest with me about his knowledge and experience buying a home using a reverse mortgage. He told me that although he hasn’t had a lot of experience working with them, he would walk through it with me. “We will learn about it together.”Once I had completed and obtained certification from my Reverse Mortgage Counseling, Pete emailed me new MLS listings daily. Within two weeks of showing me homes, I showed a genuine interest in one of them. I was excited but scared to “pull the trigger” to make an offer. Pete took me to the city Police Dept. to speak with the crime analyst about the crime rate in the area. He drove me to find the nearest shopping center and bus stop. He patiently took me back to that home three more times so I could be sure.Well, we made the offer and it got accepted! He was true to his word. Together we walked through the miles of paper work for the reverse mortgage despite my frustration with the process. Pete was true to his words: “Terri, I am in this for the long haul.” He promised me a comfortable home. Mission accomplished!Pete, you are my realtor. You have become my friend. Many thanks!

"I would like to recommend Pete Pearson as an outstanding Realtor. He is honest and will look out for your interests. I have found that he has a wealth of information as to what is currently available in the market. He knows past and present property values and is a good negotiator. He is also experienced in helping clients obtain financing. Pete is easy to work with and is more than willing to go the extra mile to help his clients. He was a good resource when I had difficult decisions to make. Pete also referred me to an excellent Realtor for my purchase of three properties out of state. I have been very satisfied with the outcome of our real estate transactions. I highly recommend Pete for any real estate transaction you might have and as an added bonus you will gain a valued friend".
"Pete Pearson is a friendly, personable guy with a great sense of humor. But he is a serious Realtor. He is willing to go the extra (many) miles to make sure your transaction goes smoothly whether buying or selling. He pays close attention to the details and never makes you feel you are being railroaded into any decisions. He sticks close to be sure all the ducks line up - right to the point when you sign on the dotted line(s). And he is very good at making all the language understandable to mere mortals. Thanks Pete!
