My goal is to make the process of buying, selling, or owning a home efficient, enjoyable and rewarding for you. See what my clients have said about my real estate services...

 

 

 

 

 

We would like to say our appreciation for having Peter Kusch from Re/Max for selling our home.

We had previously used another agent from June until the end of Agust 2000. During this time we were very discouraged by his performance. We had only 6 showings during this time and there was nothing really done.

When we were approached by Peter to sell our home we were thinking we should give it a try, but we thought that our home would just sit on the market like it had before with another Realtor. But Peter Kusch showed us that he could sell our home and he did. We gave him the opportunity and we are very pleased with the way he conducted business. When he was unsure he never stated his feelings he just went with how we felt and it worked.

If we were ever to recommend a Realtor to anyone, it would be Peter Kusch. Because in our eyes he is an excellent Realtor. Thank you!

This April, my family moved to a bigger house from community of Shawnessy to Sundance. We were fortunate to have Peter Kusch as our realtor.

Peter helped us move into our first house seven years ago. Last summer we called him to ask for advice. We needed a bigger home that fit into our tight budget.

Peter was very honest and patient with us because we would not move unless the house for sale was perfect. He always looked out for our best interest - not his. It was reassuring to know that we could trust him throughout the whole process.

Peter has excellent negotiating skills and a great attention to detail when evaluating potential homes. He continues to provide us with advice on everything from fireplaces to carpet cleaning.

I wholeheartedly recommend Peter Kusch. He is a pleasure to deal with and I plan on using him for any future I may have.

This is the second time that we have used the services of Peter Kusch.

The first time was a couple years ago to sell our first house. He came up to the door and told us that he was positive that he could sell our house. We were quite leery, because the first real estate agent just listed our home and did nothing else. With Peter he not only listed our house, he had "Open Houses" as well as brought numerous potential buyers into to look at our house.

Within 2 weeks our house was sold.

When we decided to sell out second home, Peter was instrumental in selling it in less than 48 hours.

We should be commended for his very hard work and professionalism. We would not hesitate to highly recommend to our friends that are selling their homes to use services of Peter Kusch.

My husband and I are getting close to our retirement age and just like many people at this age, we were thinking about investing for our golden years. I was very cautious about investing in real estate mostly because of the hot market and the affect it might have on the buyers. I had my doubts about whether I would be given enough options to think about and not to be pushed into buying a property that we would regret later on.

After meeting a few real estate agents and visiting a couple of properties we got into contact with Peter. In our first meeting, I put aside my doubts and started to believe that I could trust our big decision into his hands.

During the two months that he worked with us, he showed professionalism and commitment to our points of view. There were times that he even stopped us from making rushed decisions. He made the process very convenient and worked with our schedule. He provided us with ample time and information to make our decision. He went as far as renegotiating the price for the second time with the seller to adjust it to the market value after we put an offer. I couldn't have been happier!

Now we have what we were looking for and it wouldn't have been possible without Peter's knowledge of the market, hard work, commitment and experience. Unlike what I had anticipated, purchasing a property can be a pleasant experience. I'm sure next time I wouldn't have any hesitation about buying a second investment property. Thank you Peter for assisting us with making the right choice! It's been such a pleasure working with you.

Peter has always given us excellent service. He helped several members of our family, including myself, find good deals when buying both first and investment homes.

Furthermore, Peter has been extremely helpful when selling my home during stressful times involving this sale.

Peter is always available. Peter is very knowledgeable. Peter is not pushy and tries to find good value for the customer (such as myself) rather than make a quick sale. Lastly, Peter always has real estate statistics at his fingertips.

Moving is one of the most stressful things a person can do, especially if you are buying a new house as well. I have to say that in a super hot sellers market, Peter did an outstanding job in finding me both an affordable and functional place to live. I can honestly say that Peter is one of the most professional and knowleadgeable real estate agents that I've ever met. There is no question in my mind that when I sell and buy again I'll be calling Peter

Peter Kusch acted as our buying realtor on our recent house purchase in Parkland, Calgary. We found Peter to be a straight forward, honest, professional and experienced realtor whom we would have no hesitation in recommending.

 

Gordon and Judith McClymont.

 


Peter was essential part of my home-buying experience. As a first time homebuyer, Peter provided the experience and counsel that helped me find the perfect place for me that I knew would be a good choice. He wasn't high pressure, and was always careful to look after my interest as a client. Peter was very familiar with the market, and was able to put my parents at ease that he would help me find the perfect first home. 

I would recommend Peter as a realtor to any of my friends, whether they are buying a house for the first time or are looking to upgrade.

Thank you so much for all your help with my search, I couldn't have done it without you!

Elise Stephenson.

 


Our family met with Peter Kusch in early spring of 2003. He helped us buy our first home in Marlborough Park. We were new to this world and Peter guided us through the process flawlessly. He helped us find the perfect home and instructed us on what were the best steps to take to ensure we were going to get the house we really wanted.  By spring of 2007 our family had outgrown that little starter home and we approached Peter to sell it for us. As before we were impressed by his professional manner, his attention to detail and we were very happy with the price he achieved for us.                                      

Since then we have had Peter locate another property for us. This search took time till we found the perfect house. Peter was patient and never rushed us and always kept us up to date on what was available that matched our search criteria.  He was always available to inspect homes we thought might be suitable.                    

We have also recommended Peter Kusch to friends who were in need of realtor service and they also were very happy with his professionalism and reliability.

Sincerely,

Crystal McDonald

Buying or selling your home can be a stressful and emotional time. Making sure you have a professional realtor in your corner is essential.

When I was preparing to sell my home I interviewed a total of seven realtors before I chose Peter Kusch.

 Peter Kusch was the most professional and knowledgeable of all the realtors that I interviewed. Peter works very hard for his clients and he thoroughly understands the Calgary market.

 

Peter was the only realtor that I interviewed that took the time to personally view all the competing listings in my neighbourhood so we would know exactly what we were dealing with.  He also had connections to professional trades people who were able to help me get my property in tiptop shape for a very reasonable price before I listed it.

 

Peter’s friendly manner makes him very easy to work with. He always answered my questions and never made me feel like I was bothering him. Peter was always on time for our meetings and always answered his phone whenever I called.

 

Peter’s knowledge and hard work paid off because my home was sold after only 27 days on the market and I was very happy with the final sale price.

 

I would definitely hire Peter again and have recommended him to my friends and family!

 

If you are looking for an experienced realtor who will always represent you in a professional manner and guide you through the real estate market then Peter Kusch is the realtor for you!

It is good to have a good Realtor behind you when selling a house. A good Realtor is someone who knows the real estate and cares about the clients. Peter Kusch is that Realtor. My husband and I are very disappointed we did not meet Peter months ago. When we first listed our house we have had two Realtors, since then neither of them got an offer.

After meeting with Peter he was able to sell our house within first month.

We just want to thank you for the excellent job you have done for us in selling our home. And in such a short time. Thank you for a job well done.

Thank you Peter. You are veteran in selling houses.

Delroy and Wilora Brown

 


Peter's very professional and friendly attitude made our house purchase one of the best buying experiences we have ever had. His knowledge of the local real estate market is phenomenal. For his clients, Peter will go miles beyond the highest expectations. Detailed market analysis and very clever judgement are the main attributes of his toolbox. Quite a few times, we were pleasantly surprised by the effort and the enthusiasm Peter brings to the business.
We are glad that for a such important life decision (and buying home definitely is) we can count on somebody we trust.
Either you are buying home for your family or thinking about investing in real estate, I would recommend Peter's services without any hesitation.
And again - many thanks Peter.

We are writing this in appreciation to Peter Kusch for the wonderful professional service he gave us in the sale of our house. He particularly impressed us with his attention to details and his professionalism. We wish you all the best for the future. You are excellent at what you do. We’ll certainly call you when we need an agent for our next move. Thank you so much for everything!

Rafal Kistelski and Eliza Michalska

 


We worked with Peter on two occasions - to buy our first home and to sell it and buy another one few years later. It was always a pleasure even under the toughest market conditions. Peter was professional, promptly returning our calls and emails and always keeping our interests in mind.
We certainly plan to use his services should we need them again.

R. and L. Mroz

 


In today's challenging Calgary real estate market, you really need a realtor who knows Calgary real estate. Peter Kusch is such a man.

 

He knows Calgary's housing market not just in theory, but also in practice.

 

Peter has recently assisted us in several property transactions, and the results have been very successful.

 

We are impressed by Peter's diligence, patience, and ability to go the extra yard when others will not. We do not hesitate to recommend Peter to anyone wishing a first- class realtor experience.

 

Peter B. Walker / E. Walker

 


From the moment I met Peter, I was impressed with his professionalism, diligence and attention to detail. Peter did an outstanding job in providing me with non-biased information about the Calgary real estate market, and pointed me towards properties that matched my expectations and budget.

Prior to purchasing my property with Peter, I interview several agents, I was impressed by Peter because he was the only one to say “this property has a terrible resale value”, “the condo fees are too low to sustain general repairs for a building this age” and “we can do better than this”.

I appreciated being kept in the loop with every step of the purchasing process.  Peter has gone beyond the call of duty to ensure my satisfaction.  I cannot thank him enough for working with the developer to ensure all the condo deficiencies were finished in a timely fashion. I have no hesitations once so ever in recommending Peter onto my friends for any real estate needs.

There is not enough words to express our home buying experience with Peter Kusch.  He turned the agent-buyer-seller relationship into deep level friendship.  We will never forget Peter wherever we live!  We found a realtor who is a cut above the rest. When we first met him, he was oozing with distinct style that was impressive.  The second time we met for the market evaluation, it was a done deal! How gratifying it is to listen to someone who has done his work so efficiently. You will be listening to 10 years of real estate experience that is not tired and not worn a bit. 

 

Peter's experience with our house selling and buying have also likely created a niche in his heart.  We took him to the craziest ordeal of his real estate experience.  From down to the bottom all the way up to this roller coaster ride.  Late night phone calls for some groundbreaking news to heart breakers for a collapsed deal then shifting gears to find multiple offers.  It was madness!

 

To this day, I still cannot believe that we went through such an ordeal.   Thankfully, Peter was there to provide guidance and of course, the much awaited right buyer.    We can't say it all Peter, but heartaches and frustrations aside, we are glad that we picked you as our realtor!

We are writing this letter to express our appreciation for the work Peter Kusch did in order to complete the sale of our property in Calgary earlier this year.

 

After a less than stellar experience with another realtor, we engaged Peter to represent us. He was professional in all his dealings and was pleasant, knowledgeable, easily available and responsive to us.

 

After doing updated research, due to the changing market conditions, we had to reduce our asking price from our original listing. Peter was able to sell our house at the full asking price within two weeks of listing - not easy task in the tough, slow real estate market.

 

Peter referred us to a lawyer to handle the legal closing aspects. Between Peter and the lawyer, they facilitated the transition of ownership quickly and efficiently, making it much easier for us.

 

We woul not hesitate to recommend Peter to other people who may be looking for a real estate agent to represent them in the purchase or sale of property.

What service did Peter to us:

 

(1) A friendly smile on the coldest day.

(2) Consideration to my client in our basement property.

(3) Sacrificing the one and only chair to the cat when we moved out our furniture.

(4) Advice and service to both seller and buyer.

(5) A person who really listens ans has interest in stories we would share.

(6) Honest and informative from the first meeting.

(7) Drive and determination even as news is bad.

(8) Careful and concerned about his clients.

(9) Delivers package with the common favourites of the owners.

(10) Keeps update information after sale.

(11) Patient and funny.

(12) Working in his best entire.

 

I would certainly buy property from Peter if I was going to stay in Calgary. You my friend have true heart. In these trying times the fight never left you. Keep doing the good because what goes around come around.

 

Sincerely your friend

We had been trying for almost 2 years to sell our house in Calgary when we met Peter Kusch

 

Peter introduced himself and left a business card, which by good chance we kept. When we called Peter to ask for an appraisal we were surprised at how quickly he responded and at the very professional package of information that he gave us.

 

Within 24 hours of accepting Peter's offer of services there was a showing and the showings kept on coming. This was not like all the previous realtors we had used where the showings numbered about 4 a month.

 

We were putting our house on the market at what was considered not too good a time to sell, but we had 3 offers and last offer was accepted on the 59 day of our contract. By day 71 the "Sold" sign was on our front lawn.

 

Peter is professional, courteous and polite and a pleasure to do business with. He is honest and will tell you "how it is" not "what you want to hear". He will work diligently and put your interests first.

 

As far as we are concerned, you could not do better than to utilize the services offered by Peter Kusch, any other realtors you have tried pale into the background in comparison. Peter also has a great team behind him.

 

Without hesitation we will recommend Peter Kusch as realtor to anyone wanting to sell their house.

We encourage anyone considering selling personal or investment properties to use your services. They will find a results oriented personality willing to work for his client's best interest.

 

Thank you once again for your time, consideration and attention to detail.

As a first time home buyer, I had very high expectations for a realtor. These expectations were greatly exceeded by Peter. Not only did he find me the perfect condo, he found me the perfect home in the area I wanted at an affordable price. Unlike most agents I had spoken to prior to working with Peter, he was patient, informative, and never made me feel pressured into choosing a space.
 
I will most definitely work with Peter again in the future, and will continue to recommend him to friends and family.
 
Thanks Peter!

We first came to know Peter from his card which appeared in our mailbox; so, when we decided to sell our home, he was the first one we thought of calling. We wanted a realtor who would put our interests first and this was realized quickly upon meeting Peter. He kept in touch with us and called with each new development. We never had to wonder what was happening. Peter's accurate market evaluation of our property and his dedication to the sale of our house resulted in our house selling in one day. We are very happy with the results and would whole heartedly recommend Peter to anyone selling or buying property. His friendly manner immediately made as feel at ease and his professionalism and expertise made us quickly realize we had hired the right person. Thank you, Peter, for an excellent job.

After three and half frustrating months of unsuccessfully trying to sell our condo with another realtor, my wife and I listed with Peter Kusch.

We found his methods and approach to be precisely what we wanted from a realtor. We very much appreciated his honesty and candour. He told us exactly what we needed to do to make our condo more saleable, and what price we could expect to get. Although at times his advice was not what we wanted to hear, nevertheless, we very much appreciated the fact that he was being 100% honest with us.

From the initial listing process, throght to the final closing, Peter constantly kept us informed as to what was happening. We also found that he always completely fulfilled his verbal promises. Whether is was a phone call, an open house, or a personal visit at a specified time, Peter always did exactly as promised.

As a result, our condo sold in a timely and problem-free manner. We would certainly use Peter again should we decide to buy or sell, and would highly recommend him to anyone wishing to do the same

I was referred to Peter from a friend when I was looking for my first house in Calgary five years ago.  He couldn’t have helped me pick a better house.

When it was time to move on, I came back to Peter to sell my old place and purchase another. Both deals went seamlessly and as I expected.  I will continue to seek Peters assistance in real estate transactions because I know I can trust him to act in my best interest, and contributing a depth of experience.  I continue to recommend Peter to my friends.

Thank you very much for your help & dedication in finding a suitable home for us to purchase. The advise and assistance you offered us was above and beyond what was expected & it is difficult ti find enough ways to say thank you. Your professionalism & personal dedication with the purchase of our present home made the experience very pleasant.
 
From the moment we contacted you, you worked completely on our behalf and within 2 days we were able to complete the purchase our new home.
 
We were very pleased to recommend you to any other persons whom we might know that are looking for a new home.
 
Yours Very Sincerely & with many thanks

Peter has helped us with the home buying and selling process and has been a pleasure to deal with in both instances. He brought a personalized and hands-on approach to our buying/selling experience and always had our best interests in mind. Without hesitation, we would highly recommend Peter's services to any prospective home buyer or seller.

Daniel and Juliet Ettinger 

 


I have known Peter Kusch for over two years now, for the purpose of purchasing both my own home, as well as investment properties. Peter has many great qualities, but best perhaps are his professionalism and his honesty. Professionalism, because Peter seems to know abut all the neighbourhoods and what's going on in them. He's given me advice on who the builder was, history on the houses, and what issues the neighbourhood face, both good and bad. He has an impressive understanding of the Calgary Real Estate Market, and has always helped me get a fair deal.

In terms of honesty, Peter has pointed out things in the home, which I had not thought of, including unseen things like traffic in the neighbourhood or what issues might come along in the future. Peter has steered me away from deals he thought weren't good value, and called me when he sees deals that are. His knowledge of the market has been right on the money.

I've signed up in the past with "team" realtors, who once they sign you up, they dump you with the junior agent who has no experience. Peter is not like that. When I work with Peter, I know Peter is the guy doing the work.

I didn't know him until I started working with him two years ago, but I am happy to call Peter Kusch my realtor, my friend, and to recommend him to others.

It is without reservation that we recommend Peter Kusch.  Peter was recommended to us by a work colleague when we accepted an offer to transfer from Vancouver to Calgary.  Like all moves ours was complex and disruptive.  Peter’s extraordinary service in finding the right neighbourhood with the right house was invaluable and an important factor in why our move was successful and trouble free.

Compared to our past experience with Realtors Peter’s performance was far and away superior.  With limited time to visit Calgary and no knowledge of the city it should have been difficult to find good price to value, to find a neighbourhood that suited our styles, wants, location and affordability.

On the first home finding trip Peter dedicated two complete days to Isabell, visiting over 40 homes, escorting Isabell throughout her stay in Calgary.  Fast and furious no doubt but the approach allowed Isabell to get a meaningful view of the city and our selected neighbourhoods to the point that she could hone in on a single area within the city.  Equally important, Peter used this time well to gain an almost perfect understanding of what Isabell was looking for.  In the subsequent months Peter viewed listings for us and was able to recommend as fitting or not fitting our needs.  This allowed us to save a great deal of effort and money flying back and forth to Calgary. 

On our next visit, specifically to inspect a home that Peter suggested would suit our needs, we secured a Purchase Agreement.  We are very happy with the purchase; we got what we wanted.

But Peter’s work did not stop upon receipt of his commission.  Two months after closing the purchase we finally moved to Calgary.  Upon my arrival at 10:30 pm Peter met me at the house to give me the keys and then took an hour to show me the basics of the house – location of the water shut off, thermostats, hot water heater setting, irrigation controls, etc.  The next morning I was fully prepared for the arrival of the moving van.

We strongly recommend Peter; he listened closely to what we said, he helped us properly define what we were looking for and he worked tirelessly and enthusiastically to complete the search.

Sincerely,

Jon & Isabell Elden 


After getting a firm possession date from the builder of our new home in Stony Plain we called upon Peter Kusch to list and sell our home in Calgary. For me this was an excellent choice. From time of listing to possession date was within two months. That fit right for us and the new home. Peter kept us well informed on market conditions and all aspects of the sale transaction. From our recent experience I would certainly recommend Peter to anyone I know for buying or selling a home in Calgary. He has done us a great service.

A job well done, thank you Peter!

It was a pleasure looking for our new home with you. Thank you for your patience and determination. In the few short months that we lived there we made it our own. If we run into anyone looking for a good agent we will certainly continue recommending you. Of course we look forward to working with you in the future as well.

We are extremely happy with the recent purchase of our new condo.  You were very knowledgeable, and professional, and helpful every step along the way. We were confident in your ability to help us find just the right place.  You dedicated much time and effort on our behalf.  We would highly recommend you to friends and family, and if need be would be happy to deal with you again in the future.

Thanks again, Keith and Terri Leischner

Hello Peter,

Thank you so very much for the gift card. Your lovely letter was thanks enough, and it is our great pleasure to send any business we can your way. Fernando and I feel so blessed that we had the chance to meet you and to experience your expertise in the real estate market. You are a true gentleman with integrity of character not always found in this business. You were expedient and efficient in delivering everything we asked of you and we consider you a master in your field. Thank you again, and you can be assured we pass your name along every chance we get.

Selling your home can be a traumatic event. Peter Kusch went out of his way to make it as pleasant as could be. I was very satisfied with his professional expertise and concern.

It is my first home buy, I had a lot of ups and down with the bank getting the mortgage but one thing kept me hopeful of getting the best place for my money: Peter Kusch, a respectful, knowledgeable, friendly, on-time and very smart man. I can say I have learnt so much from him I wouldn't learn in any school. I could end up buying a place not optimal to my money if I didn't meet Peter. 

When I started, I was like a child lost in the streets and now I know whom I will call if I want to buy a property again. 

Long story short, if you want the best deal for your money, if you want to learn things you probably don't know about buying a place, Peter is the best. He got the best place for us and surprisingly, I saw people paying more for places worth less than  mine because they didn't have Peter to guide them to get them the best interest. 

Thank you Peter and I wish you a great career you deserve. 

Mohammad, now and forever, your friend.
