Experience That Will Move You!
Originally from Idaho Falls, Idaho, Mike moved to Chandler in 1987 with his wife and two
kids. His family ran a successful construction company, and he loved to watch and understand how everything worked. He quickly learned two things, knowledge and a good work ethic can go a long way in life. Once in Arizona, he decided to change careers and studied finance and became an investment adviser at Smith Barney, succeeding for over 15 years. However, he realized something was missing, and that was not working with people face to face and providing a tangible service with immediate results. Even though it was a huge career change he went back to his first love, doing construction as a project manager. During that time he also obtained his Arizona Real Estate license. Finally
he knew that Real Estate was his love and spent the next 8 years as an independent Realtor. Those years were long as real estate had been devastated, but he still out performed the average Realtor by 3 to 1. He joined The Pete Dijkstra Team to allow him to help even more Buyers and Sellers. He uses his vast knowledge of construction and finance to help build solid relations through sound advice and recommendation
Pete has negotiated the purchase of 3 homes and the sale of 2 homes for me, and I would not have any other real estate perform any services for me. He is the very best that could be found anywhere in the valley. He has a most engaging personality and has been a good friend to me for the past 14 years.
We contacted Pete seeking a larger home for our family fifteen years ago. My husband’s criteria was a 3 car garage. I was adamant about staying in the southeast valley and of course, price was a factor. Pete listened to our needs and showed us the perfect home the first day house hunting. Our current home was difficult to sell but having the expertise, Pete guided us through that process and we successfully navigated through selling and buying. When we relocated out of state, again, Pet…
Pete was very helpful in selling our home even in a down market. Pete made sure every upgrade was mentioned on the listing. He was very thorough with gathering information on other homes listed in the general area to aide us in determining our selling price. Pete made sure he was available to show our home when needed and always made sure it was convenient for us if we were in town. If we were out of town and needed to show our home, he made sure our home was locked…
Pete and his team are very knowledgeable about all the things we needed to know about buying a house. It is our first home and we couldn’t of had a better team in our side. They explained everything to us step by step. And if I had any problems, questions or anything all it took was a phone call to them to get the problem solved. I will be recommending them to friends and family. Elizabeth C. was the realtor that helped us out. She knew what my wife wanted and started showing us homes with wh…
We worked with Liz Challoner with the Dijkstra Group. We had gone though 2 other realtor before we found her. We took a home buying class and the instructor referred us after we told him about our horrible experience with the last 2 realtor we had. Liz was such a blessing! She helped us understand the market, our budget, our wants vs. needs, and told us to take our time. If she was unsure about a question we had about a house or process, she was all over it and didn’t stop until she had …
Mike & Liz,Thank you both for your hard work helping us buy our dream home and rental. You made our dream of almost a decade finally come true! We really appreciate your time , effort, and always being available for us.Thank you, Royce & Rosie Foster
Pete and his team are very professional. They led me through a successful short sale with the least amount of pain possible. My house sold for cash the first week it was listed. I was kept informed of progress on a regular basis. I can’t think of anything more he could have possibly done.
Pete did an excellent job and we have just recommended him to our neighbors who are just now putting their house up for sale. We would willingly do business with Pete again. Thanks Pete!
Randy Jensen was my realtor and he was excellent. He was very knowledgeable on the market and was responsive to every request. Randy was backed up by a support staff that attended to every aspect of the process from financing to inspections. I was impressed with their service and would definitely recommend them to anyone that is interested in purchasing in this area.
Pete is a excellent agent, he represented us well and always had our families best interest at heart. In addition to his high level of professionalism he also manages to make the home buying experience fun! We have worked with Pete in the past and will continue to in the future.
