Dear Sam,

Both Mary and I want to thank you for a very professional job you did when selling our house!

All of the open houses and your time involved with the many many trips up the hill and hours you spent.

We cannot thank you enough for everything you did right down to the closing.

We would highly recommend you and your Company for excellent performance in your profession.

An added bonus is your good humor throughout the "Woodpecker" saga.

Thanks again, Sam -

Tom and Mary McCary

In January of 2010 I unexpectedly lost my job in Carmel and decided to sell my home on Ocean Avenue and move to Phoenix, Arizona to be closer to my son and his family. I spoke to several friends and they all recommended Sam Piffero. I was in a hurry and Sam was on safari in Africa, but I decided to wait until he returned. As soon as I met him I knew he was the right guy to sell my house quickly in a difficult market. I was in escrow in 20 days and Sam called me each day with news of how the transaction was proceeding. He cleared up any problems immediately and helped me in so many ways that were above and beyond the call of duty: he even cleaned the windows for me (inside and out ) AND he helped me move all my things into storage so the house would appear more spacious. I cannot recommend Sam more highly - and by the way, my house sold for $ 10,000 over asking price due to Sam's skillful negotiations.

Mr. Piffero was a team member that had my home at 3262 Taylor Road, Carmel, CA listed for sale. He was most dependable in promoting the home and sat the most open houses. He reported interest in the house to me promptly.

He followed through diligently with all interested parties and represented me, the seller, with frequent calls and E-mails to bring me up to date with advertising, the market, and potential clients interested in the property.

He especially excelled in negotiation with the buyer to obtain the best possible price. He handled offers professionally and followed through with counter offers.

As recognition for his professional experience, I have listed two building sites on the Monterey Peninsula with him and this represents the confidence I have in Mr. Piffero.

I recommend him to handle your sale or purchase of property.

My wife and I purchased a home in the Monterey area in September 2007. When we began thinking about moving to this area, we had no real estate contacts.

Fortunately, at a restaurant in Carmel, we met Sam Piffero of Keller-Williams. It was a lucky accident for us because we had few pre-conceived ideas about the type of home we wanted and where we wanted it located. We were going to need a patient and tireless broker. We found Mr. Piffero to be that and more. We looked at scores of homes all over the Monterey Bay area on our many visits. He took us to each of them and always remained courteous and professional. Thanks to Sam, our house hunting experience was pleasant and rewarding.

After we purchased our new home, we were pleasantly surprised to have Sam call and again offer his help with moving and finding contractors in our new area.

We highly recommend Sam Piffero to anyone looking for a new home in this area. He will work tirelessly for you.

Happy House Hunting

I am writing to express my appreciation for all of your work.
It was a pleasure to work with you. I appreciated your courtesy and professionalism. You devoted a great deal of time and effort to make the property as attractive as possible and then to market it aggressively. You took the initiative to improve the property when that was needed. The administrator and I were kept informed about the progress, and you continued to give us excellent advice as the market continued to change.

I won?t hesitate to recommend you to others who need a real estate agent. You did an exceptional job of selling the house in a difficult market.

Thanks again Sam.

Sam coordinated three simultaneous transactions for me that took incredible expertise, knowledge and skill to manage, especially in this market. In addition to holding regular open houses, each transaction had its own challenges and Sam met them all with his typical enthusiasm and can-do attitude. With Sam's perseverance and professionalism, we were able to close all three transactions within 15 days of each other...nothing short of amazing. Sam definitely 'exceeded my expectations' and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend him. He makes it happen for his clients!
