Dear Prospective Client,
"My wife and I would like to take this opportunity to tell you of our experiences with Peter MacIntyre and RE/MAX Real Estate Professionals. In 2005, my wife and I moved back into the Lansing/East Lansing area after a five-year absence. Peter must have shown us at least 50 houses within a 1 month span. He was patient, kind and accommodating. Above all, his prior work and life experience with housing and its construction made him invaluable as a knowledgeable resource in choosing our new home. We came to trust and respect his vast and detailed knowledge concerning all aspects of our purchase. We came to regard Peter MacIntyre as a friend and trusted advisor.
Subsequently, when we decided to list our home for sale, we again turned to the only person we felt had the resources and ability to do the job. Peter MacIntyre had an offer on our table EIGHT DAYS after we listed our home. We would like to add that his support staff, headed by Jill Sherman, provided us with a personalized service that is second to none. Ms. Sherman was tireless and professional in her efforts to promote the sale of our home. We recently purchased yet another home and Peter MacIntyre was there to handle the sale. It was practically an effortless experience with MacIntyre and staff at the helm.
My wife and I would like to extend an invitation to any and all prospective customers of RE/MAX Real Estate Professionals to consider Peter MacIntyre for their real estate needs. Professionalism, integrity, attention to detail and a genuine passion for helping others realize their dreams of home ownership are his stock in trade."

Getting it Sold
"Honestly, when we knew we needed to put our house on the market we were very concerned about the prospect of our home being up for sale for months and months. Two of our good friends have had their homes on the market for over a year! I contacted Peter MacIntyre immediately due to a wonderful recommendation from a friend whose home he sold within a month last January. I called Peter's officeand received a friendly greeting from his secretary and then was able to speak with Peter directly. We met Peter two days later to discuss our sales strategy. Peter was both professional and personable. He had a presentation describing his services very well. Then came the hard part: deciding on a price for our home in this market. Peter was very honest about the condition of the market which was helpful in our choosing our price. With Peter's help, we decided to put the house on the market 2 weeks later. The sign in the yard and the inside fliers were all very high quality and attracted a lot of attention from passersby. Peter did an open house for us within the first two weeks of our home being on the market. When we were considering lowering our asking price, Peter was a very helpful resource. The day we lowered our price to meet the current market better, we had a showing that weekend. These buyers made an offer which we are very pleased with. All of this within in a month and a day in this market!!! Also, his staff, Sarah and Jill are very easy to communicate with either via email or phone. Although we have never met Eleanor, we appreciate the great job she obviously did showing the home to the couple who made an offer! Another bonus, is since his wife Eleanor showed our home to the couple who made the offer, we pay a 5% commission instead of the typical 6%! When we tell our family, friends and neighbors that we received an offer for our home in 30 days they cannot believe it is possible in this market! I would definitely recommend the MacIntyre Team to anyone who wants to sell their home in this challenging home market - it can be done with a good team!"

Quick Sale Specialist
"My husband and I had made the decision to move our family of five, with three small children, to another area in Lansing. We interviewed several realtors and after our interview with Peter MacIntrye, there was no doubt in our mind who would be selling our current home and helping us purchase a new one. The venture of trying to sell our home was daunting for me personally, I knew it was a slow market and on top of that it was the end of December first of January, not an ideal time for a quick sell, which is what I was hoping for. Within about a two week time period of having our home on the market we had an acceptable offer. We accepted the offer and were now working with Peter MacIntrye to find a home. The MacIntrye/Cowen team cannot be matched when it comes to any real estate needs. Peter and his team are passionate about getting homes sold and equally helpful and passionate when helping you find a home to buy. We have recommended Peter's team time and time again to friends in need of a realtor. We would not hesitate to use MacIntyre/Cowen real estate team again for our real estate needs, they are great."
- John and Grace
"Our experience with MacIntyre & Cowen was great. You don't just have a Realtor, you have a team of professionals. The team followed up on all leads, made sure the home was advertised in a variety of websites, provided spot-on advice as to how the home should be presented and stayed confident that the house would sell. At no time did I question the ability of MacIntyre & Cowen to sell my home. I would highly recommend the services of MacIntyre & Cowen to anyone attempting to sell their home."
- Dustin and Audra Foster
"Through a difficult process, Kim Henderson did a terrific job. She was my buyer's agent at MacIntyre & Cowen for my home purchase. She kept dozens of homes in my view and patiently worked with me to find "the right one." On top of that, due to a short sale of my own 18 months ago, I had a difficult time getting a mortgage. Kim was helpful, thoughtful and a great resource for getting financed and through the whole process. Thank you Kim!"

Patient & Helpful
"Eleanor was great to work with and very patient. I know I had quite a few obstacles to jump through, but she was always very helpful in helping me. I would recommend her and her entire team to anyone looking for a home."
- Anna Fowler
"I can truthfully say that Jeff Peck and MacIntyre and Cowen team exceeded our expectations. We found Jeff to be knowledgeable and he seems to genuinely want to represent our best interests."
- Jack Stohr
"Julie was very helpful and respectful to my needs and wants throughout this whole process, and I am very glad to have dealt with someone who obviously takes their job serious."
- Derrick Morris
Courteous and Helpful
"My experience with MacIntyre & Cowen was wonderful. My house closing took a bit longer due to it being a short sale, but Eleanor's team was very courteous and helpful during the entire process. I would definitely recommend them to my friends and community members to achieve their dream of having their own home."
- Syed Ahmed
"A very grateful and heartfelt thank you to Kim Henderson. She was wonderful to work with during the whole process. She was patient, knowledgeable and helpful as I went through several homes. After I described my situation and what I was looking for, she was quick to find homes that fit my needs."
- Mike Petersmark
"Our REALTOR, Keri, was fantastic! She didn't waste our time showing us homes that wouldn't meet our needs. She worked hard to find us a home that we loved."
- Steven Humes
A great group to work with!
"Because my house sold so fast we didn't have a very long "relationship". After speaking with Peter and deciding to list with MacIntyre & Cowen, I never worried about anything. Everyone I dealt with throughout the process was very friendly and COMPETENT! A great group to work with! I would highly recommend MacIntyre & Cowen. Thanks for making this a "stressless" event in my life!"
- Sandy Benjamin
"You guys were great. Peter told me he could do it, and he did. The staff was very informative and great on following through. They definitely earned my trust and respect. The next time I'm in market to buy or sell - MacIntyre & Cowen will be my first choice.Thanks."
- Nick Grueger
Team of Professionals
"We signed a contract with Peter MacIntyre after very disappointing results from a previous real estate company in town. MacIntyre & Cowen had been highly recommended to us and we were confident this was the right choice in the first meeting with Peter! He had the extensive experience in real estate and an attitude that we WILL sell your home. He immediately went into action with his excellent team of professionals in his office, providing a great brochure for our home, advertising in multiple websites and a conscientious follow-up on all leads. What wasn't accomplished in six months with our previous company happened in weeks with MacIntyre & Cowen. We would HIGHLY recommend this team of professionals to everyone! Thank you again, for your commitment and working so hard for us."
- Robert & Glenda Hinman
"Thank you to Eleanor and her team for helping my family get the right house for us and being there through out the whole process. Have a great holiday and thanks again."
