what my clients say


"It’s been a month since we sold our home and we still wake up buzzing with how well it all went. Without a doubt we can say the successful sale of our home was down to Lawrence’s outstanding effort, experience and amazing advice. This was our first time selling a house and we started the experience being a bit scared and confused by the ins and outs of real estate, however, after working with Lawrence we have completely changed our view on this! He was so approachable and made the whole experience enjoyable and seamless. Lawrence is the ultimate professional; giving clear and helpful advice, including tips on how to best present our home to potential buyers. Thank you so much Lawrence, we can’t recommend you highly enough!"



"I have had the pleasure of working with Lawrence as purchaser and vendor, and in both cases have been left in no doubt that he gives his total commitment to the vendor. I believe his strength lies in excellent communication skills, alongside a highly professional attitude, backed by years in the industry. During a recent sale Lawrence advised on all matters pertaining to presentation, he was clear about what he and Metro would provide, and we all worked as a team to ensure his guidelines were met. As a result of this and his concerted effort over a two week period he achieved a wonderful outcome. I can highly recommend Lawrence as an advisor and agent. He genuinely cares about his clients and their aspirations whether buying or selling and works hard to achieve the goals decided on. Thank you Lawrence, from all our family."

"When recommending Lawrence, honesty, integrity and professionalism are the first words that come to mind.

Clear expectations were set from the beginning, and his high personal standards were evident throughout the process. Being friendly, supportive and committed to our cause, we were at ease placing our trust in Lawrence with the sale of our home. Regular contact, communication and availability made for a pleasant, stress-free experience and we were delighted with the result – our house was sold swiftly and for an excellent price after a marketing campaign that was second to none. We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Lawrence to anyone considering selling their home."

Lawrence Peeters is a person of great integrity, a highly skillful negotiator, and what is most important, whether buying or selling, a thorough professional who instinctively understands when it is the right time to close the deal. I have thoroughly enjoyed buying and selling through him during the twelve years that I have known him."



"We were delighted with our recent house sale.

Lawrence was both knowledgeable and professional and we felt very confident that the sale of our house was in good hands. His attention to detail, marketing plans and communication were exemplary. He worked hard to list our home at very short notice as we had a tight time frame.

Thank you Lawrence."




"I just wanted to write a few words of thanks for all your hard work and the fantastic result you achieved with the recent sale of our property. Rach and I have bought and sold property in several countries and you are by far the most professional, enthusiastic and hardworking realtor we have ever worked with. We were really comfortable and impressed with our dealings with you at every stage of the sales process. You really took the time to listen to us when we asked you to represent us, and based on our conversations, came up with an excellent marketing and sales strategy. This was implemented well and you were fantastic in keeping us informed throughout the process, with the end result exceeding our expectations. This is our second time working with you and it definitely won't be the last. I will certainly be recommending you to anyone that needs representation with the sale of their property and look forward to our next association."

"Lawrence produced an excellent marketing plan, went over and above to ensure our house looked its best, and got a fantastic result."



"We first met Lawrence as buyers of a property and were immediately impressed by his level of professionalism and excellent communication skills. Furthermore he treated us with kindness and respect as people which is what the provision of an exceptional service is all about. We then decided to entrust Lawrence with our largest financial investment having witnessed  in the weeks prior how he operated and were thoroughly impressed with his exceptional high quality marketing – both ensuring we had professional images and detailed script writing. After just 8 days on the market Lawrence presented an offer to us and not only that, supported us through how to best navigate the situation; which at times can be a very overwhelming process that requires quick decision making. I would recommend Lawrence as a person that cares about people and provides and exceptional high quality service."

"From the minute Lawrence Peeters walked through our front door, we felt comfortable about choosing him to sell our home. His integrity and professionalism put us straight at ease. Lawrence listened to our requirements, worked hard on our behalf, communicated with us regularly and gave us sound advice, which ultimately led Lawrence to selling our house at the very first open home, and achieved a top price for the area. He is a very pleasant, yet professional gentleman who is easy to work with, and without hesitation we would highly recommend Lawrence to be entrusted to sell your property."

"Lawrence continually demonstrates his exceptional professional capabilities to maximum effect. Due to his superior marketing skills and superb people skills, our home sold quickly ‘under the hammer’ for a price we were absolutely delighted with. Lawrence handles all negotiations with scrupulous honesty and the utmost professionalism.

We highly recommend Lawrence whether you are buying or selling your home."

"In preparation to sell we canvassed four recognised agents in addition to Lawrence. From the start we identified marketing and negotiation skills as critical attributes in the agent we would employ. We were left in no doubt that Lawrence could provide the necessary 'x factor'.

From the start of the process Lawrence was very focused on the key aspects of market exposure, market feedback and ultimately creating a competitive situation amongst prospective purchasers. We would have no hesitation in recommending Lawrence to prospective vendors."


"Lawrence recently marketed and sold our property. Throughout the process Lawrence was very professional, well organised and an excellent negotiator. We had multiple offers after a two week period and his skills achieved a premium price for our home. We will be using Lawrence again and highly recommend him to others."



"Due to the extremely thorough and professional service by Lawrence, the selling of our home was a hassle free experience. We were highly impressed with his attention to detail, clear and concise communication and knowledge of the market. This straight up no nonsense approach we believe made it an easy process for all parties involved. We have and will continue to enthusiastically recommend Lawrence."



"Thank you for the efficient and courteous manner with which you so assuredly sold our home. I have used many fine agents for my property dealings over the past twenty five years and I consider you one of my best associations."

"We used Lawrence twice previously to sell properties and were very happy to seek his revives again. We have always found him to be a straight shooter and a very calming influence in what can be a fraught process. He is always working hard for you too - indeed within three weeks of marketing he had secured us five offers, with the successful one being at the top of our price range. Having used several agents over the years we can definitely recommend Lawrence as the best we’ve dealt with... thanks Lawrence!"



"Lawrence conducts his business in a highly professional manner, and is an agent who really does have his clients best interests at heart. He goes the extra mile for his clients, and is not ‘interested in just the sale’ – but very much focuses on achieving the best possible outcome; even in the face of adversity."

"Lawrence was very easy to work with, very personable always keeping us totally up to date with all developments in an honest and encouraging tone. We are very thankful we met as the house sold in one week with a lot of excellent offers and for a good market price. We have no hesitation in recommending Lawrence, and have already done so on many occasions, to anyone who requires avery competent, trustworthy, dedicated and enthusiastic salesperson who possesses a vibrant passion which he brings to his work."



"Lawrence has always impressed with the meticulous and thorough way in which he approaches his work. He is an accomplished communicator and conveys ideas and instructions clearly and concisely. Also, he is an excellent listener, and assesses information logically."



"Lawrence impressed me from the outset as someone who knows his job inside out, and carries it out smoothly and efficiently. Selling my house with Lawrence was fast - three days from the first open home - and non-traumatic.

Lawrence is a personable and respectful man, and I almost found it fun to sell my home in his capable hands! He puts energy and thoroughness into his work. I appreciated Lawrence’s direct manner too."



"After trying unsuccessfully to sell my property through another agent, Lawrence was highly recommended to me by a friend. His direct, no fuss approach was refreshing after my previously disappointing experience. Fresh marketing - stunning photography - and sold after only one week on the market! And for $60,000 more than my last best offer.

Great advice, fantastic service. A highly skilled professional."



"Excellent marketing ensures that the widest possible buyer pool is attracted to the property, including out-of-area buyers. This heightens the chances of multiple offers and achieving a premium market price."



"Before listing our lifestyle property my husband and I attended at least twenty open homes searching for the right agent. Lawrence clearly stood outwith his energy, stamina and professionalism. The most valuable point of difference lay with Lawrence’s exceptional customer service, and his incredibly high standard of negotiation skills. Notwithstanding that we lived out of town, Lawrence would travel to see us any time day or night. The end result achieved by Lawrence through his superior negotiation skills well exceeded our expectations. The bottom line is that there are simply not enough adjectives to describe how thrilled we were to find Lawrence. We have since referred him to close colleagues and friends, all of whom have experienced the same unequivocally high standards. Without hesitation, we would engage Lawrence again."



"Not only was Lawrence successful in negotiating the sale of our property, he was honest and professional, and his advice was invaluable. The whole process was therefore more relaxing and less stressful than we anticipated. We have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Lawrence as an extremely conscientious and enthusiastic agent, who we believe would give satisfaction to anyone wishing to sell a property."



"Our experience with Lawrence has been a really rewarding one. His expertise in selling real estate is outstanding, and he goes the extra mile in every aspect of his job.
He did a fantastic job in the marketing of our house.
We always recommend Lawrence to our family and friends - and anyone who wants to sell their home and get the same great results."



"As a former real estate agent and PR person, I have to say that I have never experienced anyone as committed to 'the job' as Lawrence. From the get go everything he promised, he delivered... and some! Lawrence is utterly efficient and a consummate professional. His knowledge on current market trends and advice on how best to present our property to this market to get a positive result was excellent. When Lawrence says "leave your property in my hands", he means it. We trusted him implicitly. From the first Open Home to his after-sale service, his wisdom and guidance and deep understanding of the emotion involved in selling your home, is outstanding."



"Lawrence Peeters was highly recommended to us, so we contacted him, and his professional marketing plan proved a winner for the family. Lawrence, with his very confident and approachable manner, alongside his genuine passion and keen spirit, ensured the parties involved obtained a positive outcome. We followed his recommendations, one of which included a professional photographer, and were very impressed with the superb photos. During the sales process Lawrence kept us fully informed by visits, phone calls or text messages. A big thank you from all our family."


"We have bought and sold many houses before and found Lawrence to be the most pleasurable agent we have dealt with. We found him to be incredibly professional, reliable, hard working, likable, realistic, honest and a great negotiator.
Lawrence is one of those people who has a commonality between himself and his clients, as he has the ability to relate and connect with people on a personal level. He easily connected, discussed, and relayed information to us, working hard throughout the process, giving us valuable information about how to achieve the best open home success, and staying up late on negotiation night to bring us the best deal from our buyer. We would recommend using Lawrence as your agent  for his excellent negotiating skills, and for someone you could trust to sell your house quickly and efficiently."


"Having bought and sold with Lawrence previously, we hold him in very high regard, and listed with him again. 

After just one open home we had multiple offers. Just 6 days from going live on the internet, and after just one open home.

Lawrence's knowledge of the market is vast. 

With Lawrence you know exactly where you stand; he is straight talking and will let you know what he believes will help your house sell in todays fast moving property market.

We would not hesitate to engage Lawrence in any future house sale we may be involved with and would highly recommend him to anyone who is considering selling their property."



"Lawrence’s attention to detail is impressive. He is meticulous and thorough in his approach, and ensures both print and internet marketing looks fantastic."



"On behalf of myself and Keri, I would like to thank Lawrence for doing a great job in selling our three properties in Anderson's Bay. Lawrence at all times kept us informed of the situation and how we could get the best prices for the houses. He has a great professional manner and puts you to ease at times that can be stressful. His negotiation skills are outstanding, achieving prices that were above the ones we aimed for and his knowledge of the market is one of his many strengths. We would have no hesitation choosing Lawrence Peeters and Metro in the future, we recommend anyone selling their house for the best price - Lawrence Peeters is your man."


"I would like to thank you for your conducting of my property sales. It was a pleasure to do business with you. Your honesty, integrity and professionalism is to be commended. The prices achieved on both sales were above my expectation. I would highly recommend you to anyone wishing to sell their property."



"We were so pleased with Lawrence’s energetic skills in selling our home that we had no hesitation in also entrusting him with the sale of our investment property – and this also proved to be the right decision! If you want the services of a real estate agent who is knowledgeable, pleasant, courteous, and a skilful negotiator, then Lawrence Peeters is your man!"


"We engaged Lawrence to sell our home. As the process unfolded it was clear that Lawrence had a very clear idea of what he wished to achieve at each stage, and he was good at communicating to us what we could do to assist the sale. We were pleased to see that when the time came for the most interesting phase of the deal he was clear what he had to do to achieve the best result. Importantly he acted quickly and achieved the preferred result, rather than taking the easy route which would have sold the house at a lesser return."


"When choosing a real estate agent professionalism and integrity should be foremost in your mind. It needs to be someone that you resonate with, someone that you completely trust. After all, you are entrusting this person with your most important financial asset. Lawrence ensures that you are making informed decisions throughout the marketing and selling process. That the marketing is nothing less than excellent. That buyers are assisted by providing quality pre-contract disclosure information. That the process is transparent. Quality service, brilliant marketing, outstanding results."



"After an unsuccessful experience with another real estate company we both keep congratulating ourselves for selecting Lawrence as our agent. Lawrence made the process so easy and absolutely wowed us with his marketing expertise and negotiating skills. One and a half weeks and top dollar – what more could we have asked for."



"I wanted to share how much I appreciate the efforts of Lawrence Peeters in selling our house in Dunedin. Lawrence has a very friendly manner and professional approach. The way he marketed the property with research and historical details went hand in hand with the character of the house. Living away from Dunedin it was comforting to have a person of Lawrence’s ability looking after the property and he kept us informed of every move in relation to the house. Lawrence put a lot of personal effort into looking after the property as well as going the extra mile on many occasions. I would thoroughly recommend Lawrence to anyone interested in buying or selling property in the Dunedin area.   
Many thanks Lawrence."


"On behalf of Beverley and myself we would like to express our sincere thanks and appreciation to Lawrence for his highly professional approach to marketing our property. Not only did he give us first class advice on selling our house, he inspected and advised us on the purchase of our townhouse. 
Our property was sold within two weeks which allowed us to purchase the townhouse that we had set our hearts on. We would have no hesitation in recommending Lawrence and the team at Metro to anybody selling or buying property."



"Lawrence provided us with good advice and an excellent professional service tailored to our circumstances.

He went above and beyond what we expected of an agent and we would strongly recommend him."


"I met Lawrence approximately three years ago when buying a house in Dunedin. At the time he made an excellent impression with his professionalism and with the personal touches he employed, such as coffee coupons and movie nights. Since that time, my partner and I have twice put our house in Dunedin on the market. As we were out of town by then, Lawrence went the extra mile and mowed lawns, washed windows and even vacuumed - all without being asked. He bought a mat for the front door on one occasion and a beautiful flower arrangement in a glass bowl on another. Lawrence becomes a friend over time, as he instils trust and confidence in those who meet him. I would have no hesitancy, whatsoever, in recommending him to anyone who needs to sell or purchase a house."


"We highly recommend Lawrence as a real estate agent. He recently sold our house and his service was outstanding. Lawrence is very professional, has a great marketing approach and communicates very well with his clients so you know what is happening every step of the sale process. We will be recommending him to our friends and family."



"Lawrence has kept in touch with us for the last eight years, sending us market information and invitations to social evenings, that we attended. We have found Lawrence very professional and successful which is why we chose him as our estate agent. We have been very pleased with the sale of our house. The marketing, photography and advice was outstanding. His customer service and professionalism was beyond our expectations. He definitely went the extra mile helping us out as we had relocated out of town. We would not hesitate using Lawrence again. We have recommended Lawrence to some of our close friends and family."

"At our first meeting with Lawrence an agreed marketing plan was devised, which he then executed with precision. The marketing of our home was well above our expectations and the photography outstanding. This resulted in a competitive situation amongst the interested parties and a favourable outcome for us. Due to the extremely thorough and professional service by Lawrence, the selling of our home was a hassle free experience. We were highly impressed with his attention to detail, clear and concise communication and knowledge of the market. This straight up no nonsense approach we believe made it an easy process for all parties involved. We have and will continue to enthusiatically recommend Lawrence to anyone who is selling (or buying) a home here in Dunedin. A genuine 'people person', Lawrence would be our first choice of agent every time."


"I would highly recommend Lawrence, he is a very skilled communicator, experienced, pays meticulous attention to detail and has a superior knowledge of the housing market. He inspires confidence and has taken me seamlessly through the process of selling my home and achieved a very efficient and brilliant result. He gets personal satisfaction from delivering the best for his clients and it shows."

"I wish to commend Lawrence Peeters for his work associated with our purchase and the sale. We found him very pleasant to deal with, knowledgeable, open, ethical and empathetic.  He provided excellent advice and assisted us throughout the whole process to very satisfactory outcomes.  We would highly recommend him."

"I have been very well looked after by Lawrence who has gone the extra mile to both sell my house and to find the perfect fit for me. He has been a great support and I would recommend him without hesitation to anyone as a trustworthy agent with your best interests at heart."

"We had the pleasure of purchasing our new house and also selling our previous house through Lawrence at Metro Realty. Because we did it in the wrong order it could have been the most stressful time in our lives, but due to Lawrence’s invaluable advice it couldn’t have been easier. We chose Lawrence to sell our house after purchasing our new house because we really liked the way he conducted himself with true professionalism, honesty and integrity.

We found him at the top of his game, knowing exactly what the market demanded and the suggestions and advice he gave us as to how to present our house resulted in us selling it incredibly quickly. He far exceeded our expectations on what he delivered and was always available to us if we needed help or to answer any questions. We found him to be an exceptionally hard worker so that we could achieve all of our dreams and we couldn’t be happier.

Because of everything we have stated above I cannot recommend him highly enough. Our interactions did not end after the sale – his 'after care' service is second to none, however I’m not sure this is part of the job. We no longer see him as a real estate agent, we consider him our friend."

"We chose Lawrence to act as our real estate agent to sell our home, as we were impressed by his professionalism when we originally bought it. Lawrence laid out a sales and marketing plan designed to sell our house in a difficult market. We followed this plan and Lawrence had three offers in front of us after only three weeks, our house was sold, at a price that we were happy with. Lawrence took care of every step of the process, and went the extra mile for a successful outcome. Our advice to anyone wishing to sell their home is to choose Lawrence Peeters as their real estate agent.

Listen to Lawrence, you won’t be disappointed."


"We were introduced to Lawrence Peeters by a friend of ours, he came highly recommended and we are so thrilled that we engaged his services. Lawrence was a great source of knowledge throughout the selling process. He made recommendations of areas that we should address pre-sale and he was able to connect us with a team of trusted tradespeople who helped us prepare our house for sale. He made a point of checking in during the preparation period and he was always available and ensured we stayed on track. Once our preparation work was done for sale we sat back and let him manage the entire sales process. Lawrence was very professional he always had our and the buyers best interests at heart and he also ensured that we were happy with every decision that was made along the way. We would fully recommend Lawrence Peeters services to others, he was our real estate agent but by the end of the process he had become our trusted friend as well."
