    - Sep 21 2020 I have used Peter for the purchase and sale of our condo and also the purchase of our new home and construction contract. Peter has been in the business for a long time and it shows. While Peter doesn't gloss over details his level of expertise allows him to explain to you exactly what you need to know so he is efficient with your time. So much of this new construction process and builders' contracts is new to me but Peter has put me at ease in assuring me what aspects of the contract are industry standard and where there might be areas to negotiate. Peter is patient, responsive, and always wants to advocate for his clients, I can't sing his praises enough.

  • Ashley Dirks

    - Jan 24 2019 As as real estate broker, the attorney I am partnered with on any given real estate transaction can make or break a deal; which is why I'm always confident to refer my clients to Attorney Peter Marx. Not only is Peter an all-around stand-up guy; but his "stern-but-fair" approach fits the culture model in which I choose to run my business. As with many brokers, my clients tend to find themselves in"unique" situations; and with Peter's guidance & support, we have consistently been able to work through them as a team. In my time working with Peter, he has always kept a "cool head" and maintains an excellent rapport with other attorneys, which is extremely beneficial during tough negotiations. Peter is very knowledgeable & responsive and I look forward to working with him for many years to come.
