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!

    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 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.
