“Excellent followup to our requests. Paperwork was handled properly & timely. They worked diligently with our timelines. They did an excellent write-up on the description of our home and amenities. They “stepped” through each process with us and gave us an understanding of each such as inspections, termites, window replacement and followed through on each one. Frequent phone calls were made to us. They are very good at their business and we have recommended them to many.”

I would highly recommend them to prospective clients in the Surprise, AZ area and more specifically in Sun City Grand.”

“The Petersens listed my house and sold it in four weeks . They also helped me find a new home in about that same time period . … Only a mile away!

Karen knew my needs and the plan I wanted and suggested the house to look at . It was the one I ended up buying and I am 100% satisfied . She was always smiling and happy to show me or my family the house repeatedly. I was always kept up-to-date on inspections, repairmen ,closings, warranties….ect.
I WOULD DEFINITELY RECOMMEND THIS TEAM TO ANYONE.” – Karen Ehrlich

“We chose Bill & Karen Petersen because of their excellent reputation and knowledge in the adult communities ( Sun City Grand ) they not only live up to it but in my opinion they exceeded in everything they did as we were not there to handle a lot of the matters that can come up during a Real Estate sale, we would highly recommend them, they are the best.” – Rick Rodriguez Mary Mueller
“I would highly recommend anyone moving to the Northwest Valley of Phoenix to contact Bill and Karen. They showed us 21 houses in 3 days. Bill had been sending me emails with listings in the area for over a year. When we sold our home in Illinois I knew he would find us the right house. He never showed us houses over our budget and never pushed us in any direction. He let us decide for ourselves which areas and what price we could afford. He was available within an hours notice to go show us a house. They are very nice people and we felt very relaxed with them. They were the right people to help us find the right house. They are the best” – Terry Lafenhagen
“Karen and Bill Petersen are experience, honest and helpful. I sold my house in 2 weeks because they knew a good price that would attract buyers and have people interested in seeing my home. The photographer they used was EXCELLENT and did a high profile of my home. The graph went off the scale because so many people went on line to see my home. I had 22 Real Estate Agents come to my home. The word was out and within a couple of days I had offers. Thanks to Bill and Karen, I was guided in the right direction to make a sale. They also helped with inspection requests . They gave me names of very reasonable businesses to make the necessary changes to pass the inspection. I was most impressed with the 24/7 communication that I was given. Karen and Bill answered my emails or phone calls immediately when I had any concerns or questions. They are a great team.” – Judith Persky-Sochin
“Karen & Bill Petersen are the best. Whether I was buying or selling property, I won’t use anyone else for my real estate needs. Very professionsal and, oh, so nice to work with. You’re kept up to date on all information pretaining to the transaction. If you have a question, they’ve got the answer..” – tsvasco
“Karen and Bill sold our home and helped us find a new one. We could not have been more pleased and have recommended them to others. Very personable couple and we enjoyed working with them.” – Joe & Vicki Yoakam
“I know that it has been several months since we have closed and moved to Florida but it has been way too long to write to you and thank you guys once again for all you did for us in listing and then selling our house in Sun City Grand. When we first decided to move we asked around the community and your names came up most of the time. I got the impression from everyone that your team was, to quote one of my neighbors, “The Top of the Pyramid”. In other words everyone we talked to thought you guys were the best there was in Sun City Grand. After taking their advice and having you handle the entire house selling process for us I think that everybody that pointed us in your direction did us a huge favor. We could not have been more pleased by your performance and your results. Our one regret is that having both lived in Sun City Grand for 8 years we had never crossed paths before we hired your services. I’m pretty sure that if we had met under different circumstances we would have rapidly become good friends. I emailed all my friends back in Sun City Grand and gave you my AAA rating, although I really don’t believe you need my little recommendation to continue to be successful in a community that appreciates you guys as much as Sun City Grand does.” – Francis Hughes
“My wife and I have bought and sold residential properties in Sun City West, AZ using the services of Karen & Bill Petersen. For 12 consecutive years they have been THE top-producing agents in their office. Why? In addition to their local knowledge, expertise, responsiveness and negotiating skills, they are best at PRICING real estate to sell quickly for the highest dollar. They are consummate trackers of real estate transactions and values in the area. All realtors earn the same commission, so why not take advantage of the very best in the business?” – Harry & Martha Schlafman
“We love the Petersens Team!! We have used the Karen and Bill Petersens Team, twice, once to sell and once to buy!! We Have found them to be very capable and knowledgeable in all aspects of the transactions. From the valuations of our homes, to their knowledge of the Sun City Grand community, to the closing process all steps were handled in a timely and professional manner. We recommend the Petersens Team to anyone wanting to buy or sell a home in Sun City Grand.

“We were very comfortable knowing Karen Petersen was our agent through the home-buying process. She is very devoted to her profession and understands every step of the real estate process from listing your home to signing documents at the title company. Karen is prompt in responding to emails and texts and answers the phone anytime of the day or night. What stands out most about Karen is that she genuinely cares about her clients and it shows! We highly recommend Karen Petersen because of her professionalism, experience, and dedication to her profession.” – Gerry & Vicki LaGrotta
“If you are looking for an outstanding real estate team, look no further than the desk of Karen and Bill Petersen. Their help to ease us to and through the successful sale of our house exceeded expectations.
Prior to the actual listing, the steps leading up to the sale were outlined including nudging us toward a realistic asking price. Following the listing, weekly updates were provided; frequent open houses were coordinated along with regular advertisements in local papers. The virtual home tour showed our house in its best possible light. Thank you Karen and Bill for your invaluable advice, patience, and service.” – Sandra & Bob Latvalla, Sun City West
“In 2006 we met Bill and Karen representing the owners of a house at 9507 W Hutton in Sun City, Arizona. They were professionally dressed in business suits and dealt with us wonderfully! We spent years remodeling and did not move in. We called Mr. Petersen to represent us as sellers, and again he was outstanding. We again decided to move from our condominium and contacted him. He subsequently showed us several houses; when we purchased one at 13602 W Caribbean in Surprise, Arizona, Bill assisted us whenever needed, especially with the paperwork. Again, he was most helpful with paperwork, working with the Title Company, finding and coordinating with repairmen for the few items on the punch list, and meeting with us whenever necessary. Mrs. Petersen was also very helpful meeting with us at the office when needed.
In addition to being exemplary professionals, they are also most personable and friendly. We consider The Petersens as the very top representatives of now Coldwell Banker Realty!”
– Charles & Sharon Goodhue
“We have enjoyed a business relationship with Bill & Karen Petersen for over a 10 year period. Bill and Karen were highly recommended to us through others that had very positive results with their real estate transactions.
We were fortunate enough to purchase our first home in Sun City Grand in the year 2003 with the assistance of Bill Petersen. At that time, we were still residing and working in the Seattle area. Bill proved to be very efficient in providing us the service that was required to complete our transaction in a very timely manner. Any stumbling block that may have arisen, Bill had the knowledge and integrity to move forward in a calm professional, business like fashion, while persevering to complete his task. We found Bill easily accessible. Bill shared progress of our real estate transaction on a regular schedule, while we resided in Washington. We had complete confidence in his many attributes and he did not let us down.
In the year 2011, we purchased another home in Sun City Grand and of course, contacted the Petersen Team. Once again, Bill completed our real estate transaction in an efficient and highly professional manner. Bill is most definitely our go to person for any real estate needs that may present themselves. We have highly recommended The Petersens to others. Our contacts have been equally satisfied with the professionalism that is so much a part of the Petersen Team.” – Jim & Jenny Lally, Surprise
“Our introduction began with the Petersen’s providing a very detailed overview of the long-term as well as the short-term history of the community in which my home was located; this was very helpful. I had an idea of how I wanted the home marketed; they expanded upon my suggestions significantly advancing the marketability. I very much appreciated their attention to detail.” – Jim Dalton
“Excellent followup to our requests. Paperwork was handled properly & timely. They worked diligently with our timelines. They did an excellent write-up on the description of our home and amenities. They “stepped” through each process with us and gave us an understanding of each such as inspections, termites, window replacement and followed through on each one. Frequent phone calls were made to us. They are very good at their business and we have recommended them to many.” – Cheri and Bob N.
