When we decided it was time to downsize we wanted a realtor who understood our motivation for selling. A realtor who was considerate with our feelings about leaving our family home. We found that realtor with Petrus. He was kind and generous, taking the time to explain his process for selling our home. All the while I felt he listened carefully to and appreciated our concerns, answering all our questions with well-researched facts and figures to support his answers.
During the sale of our home we were impressed with Petrus' thorough follow-up after every showing, giving us a detailed summary and frank remarks.
When it came time to present and consider offers, Petrus always supported our decisions as he offered intelligent and informed opinions about the offers.
Without hesitation we highly recommend Petrus and the Sotheby's office team.

The experience we have had selling our home and working with Petrus Engelbrecht has been exceptional! From the moment we began this journey, we have been met with the highest degree of professionalism, consistent support, and valuable guidance. We did very well on the sale of our home - achieving a record price, and truly don’t believe we could have done it without Petrus and Sotheby’s International Realty Canada.

In a time when large stately grand historic houses sit on the Hamilton market, Petrus managed to sell Gateside House Canada. Thank you for your diligence and persistence and smarts.

Petrus is an amazing agent! He spent plenty of time with me helping me find the perfect home for myself. He is dedicated to what he does and worked to make sure that I was satisfied with my purchase and comfortable with the property. I felt at ease while working with Petrus, knowing that he was looking out for my best interest. If you are looking for an agent that is committed and genuinely cares about the home you end up with I highly recommend working with Petrus.

We moved to Canada from South Africa and Petrus was just an incredible partner to us in helping us find the perfect home from our remote location in Johannesburg. He supported us through the search, purchase offer, deposits, and final closing. He even helped us find a maintenance service to keep the house in shape until we finally arrived two months after closing. We experienced commitment and professionalism beyond compare and made a friend too.

Petrus is a true professional, attentive to detail and very easy to work with. He stayed the course throughout the purchasing and closing process of our new home. Petrus is a straight shooter with a high level of understanding of the industry dynamics and is extremely honest with his clients. I can highly recommend Petrus to anyone seeking a truly professional Realtor.

True professional! Thank you Petrus! You made acquiring our dream property a pretty simple experience. I really appreciated how you communicated with us during the negotiations and the way you embrace technology made everything so easy to execute! Take care and thanks again.
Fantastic help in setting up an array of option to find a great long term lease. Petrus really spent the time to understand our needs and only presenting us the right options. He also worked fast and well to help close on the property and counsel us all throughout.

Petrus is a wonderful realtor who goes above and beyond for his clients. He is extremely responsive and passionate about his work and made our first time buying experience an enjoyable one. I would recommend Petrus to anyone looking to buy/sell or simply curious about a home down the street.

Petrus is the best in the Industry. Not often that you find a Lawyer and Realtor in the same person. His broad skillset came is very handy during negotiations to give us the upper-hand and secure the house we really wanted. He is also very timely and efficient. If you want a house in Oakville then look no further than Petrus!

Petrus is an amazing real estate agent. Petrus has sold two houses for us in North Oakville in 2016 and South East Oakville in 2017.
Because of his amazing experience, his knowledge, his negotiating skills, his patience and great personality, Petrus was able to obtain top dollars for both our properties. Petrus has many contacts in the industry, because of his contacts for staging company, flooring company, painters and window company, we were able to do the renovations and staging, as suggested by Petrus, in a short period of time, allowing us to sell our South East Oakville home, at the right time in spring 2017.
We highly recommand Petrus to be your real estate agent. You will not be disappointed.

Your team is the standard by which all realtors should be measured. I can actually say that we thoroughly enjoyed working with all of you.

Congrats Petrus. I know it proved a little more difficult than first imagined. In fact, it's the first time I can truthfully say to a Realtor that it wouldn't have happened without your hard work and dedication.

"We can't say enough good things about Petrus, anyone could learn from watching what he did. Always replied quickly, always had information. A very good quick listener."
"Petrus is lucky that we are not writing a book right now because I think Petrus might be chapter one."
Alison K, Oakville
"He was a pro all the way."
"How the heck do people do this without a Realtor."
"I can't imagine doing this on our own."
Scott S, Oakville
Thanks so much Petrus - We are so incredibly grateful and we couldn't have asked for a more wonderful agent.

Petrus did an excellent job managing the sales process. Selling of a house is always an emotional process and Petrus was able to communicate in a way that made expectations clear and kept the end goal in mind. I believe we maximized the return on the sale and that is the most important aspect of the transaction. Can't thank Petrus and his team enough. Great job by everyone. Paul
