Testimonials

  • Petra was a perfect agent! First of all, she helped us win a large, single family, end unit rowhouse with a front and back yard in a top DC neighborhood during the insanely hot housing market of March 2021 (something like that would get >15 offers above asking in 1 day!). We were only able to get this dream home because she used her great network to get us a pre-market deal - if this house had gone to market it would have been bid up so much that we could not afford it. Second, she is simply a kind, smart, and interesting person that you want to spend time with, which is great when you have to dedicate so much time to finding a home. Her easy-going, pleasant, and effortlessly cool personality was also an absolute asset in securing our purchase - we interacted with the seller directly several times and I know that she LOVED Petra as well, so it definitely was a part of the whole package! In summary: dedicated, kind, smart, fun agent, with a great team at Wydler Brothers, who gets you the home you dream of!

    We met Petra after interviewing several agents. I knew instantly we would work with her. She listened to our list of wants desires and dreams and our budget and never discouraged us or made us feel like they were unattainable. Petra guided us on an epic search. Always prompt with response and being flexible for showings and open houses. She worked around our schedule with out any issues. Every interaction was pleasant and we truly felt how much she cared about helping us along this journey. With Petra's help we found our dream place that checked 99% of the boxes! I would recommend Petra to again and again. She made the process fun and exciting every step of the way!

  • Petra has helped me find two great homes. She was wonderful to work with and made the process much less stressful than it could have been. She was super responsive, and always made herself available for my many many questions. I love my new home and highly recommend her to anyone in need of a realtor!

    As a former journalist and an expert speaker of 3 languages (possibly more), you want Petra on your team. She is also deeply attune to human nature and can ferret out good information from all parties and hammer out an offer that will win. And aside from the negotiation aspect of buying a home, Petra listens carefully to her clients and is an expert finder of dream homes.

  • With Petra was pure serendipity; I met her while I was visiting an apartment i had found myself in one of the real estate web sites and we just connected. With a few questions and a short conversation, she was able to really grasp what I was looking for (which I was not so sure about!). And she helped so much throughout the entire journey in a way that I felt not only supported and understood but also made me feel at ease with the different decisions I was making. I found my dream place back in November and I am not sure I would have taken this step if I had not have her on my side.

    Petra helped make the process of finding my apartment so much easier and faster than I imagined it could be! She found a list of places that all met my criteria. She went to see my top picks for me since I was moving from out of town, and video called me from the apartments. She was super quick to respond and fun to work with throughout the process.

  • Petra was a wonderful realtor to work with for our first home purchase! She wasn't pushy, is understanding, responsive, and taught us so much about the home buying process. We are so happy to have met her and worked with her. She took the time to get to know us and give us her honest thoughts on the homes we saw. I've already recommended her to our close friends who also just closed on their first home through her!

    I tried to rent a house on my own but after a lot of runaround and a couple of rejections I turned to Petra who helped me translate my vague search for a ”small house, big yard, half hour commute & within my budget” into a short list of options — including in neighborhoods I hadn’t considered — that were MUCH better than I had found on my own and then she reassured the landlord’s agent my BIG dog would be just as well behaved as a “small dog.” I am now happily settled in a house that is MUCH nicer than the places I had been looking at before Petra. She made the whole experience quick and painless — although I would totally understand if someone might want to drag it out just to have an excuse to hang out more with her!

  • Petra is the best. She saw us through the whole process and got our condo sold in record time. We met her on June 22, listed on July 1, had an offer on July 6, and closed on July 31. Simply amazing! Plus, she’s a lot of fun to work with.
