What some clients say:
I wanted to take the opportunity to thank Peter Stainton for his outstanding service, professional knowledge, and commitment.
During my recent home purchase, Peter was available, attentive, and patient. He understood my needs and chose properties for me accordingly.
He was always available to answer my questions. Peter's caring and dedication did not stop once the sale was complete.
A full month after the closing, Peter came over to reprogram my garage door.
I worked for many years in the real estate industry in another state, and I know from experience that someone like Peter is a rare find.
I could not more highly recommend anyone. Thank you once again!
"Flawless! It's the one word that comes to mind when we think about our experience with Peter. We were interested in
buying a house and met him through a friend's recommendation. Although we liked Peter and felt instantly comfortable with him, it's difficult to know what someone will be like professionally until you go through the whole process with them.
We can proudly say that Peter exceeded our expectations! His professionalism and knowledge of real estate were more than we had hoped. Peter was extremely dependable,efficient, and precise throughout the entire process. What we appreciated most was the way he managed all aspects of the purchase from the beginning to the end. He never disappeared or overlooked anything. He supported us during the entire process; reminding us of due dates, paperwork, inspections, etc., and made it as easy
as possible on us. Peter had great communication and was always available to answer questions that came up. He often shared his experience and advice, but allowed us to make decisions that were important to us.
Overall, we truly appreciated how dependable, trustworthy, professional, and personable Peter was. We feel very fortunate to have had the opportunity to use him and know we will use him again."

"Peter was a great help in finding our first home together. He showed inexhaustible patience and cheerfulness in spite of our own confusion and uncertainty as to what we wanted in a house. Finding a home in Boulder can be a real challenge, and one is constantly confronted with the compromises that must be made if
one is to find affordable housing in a city with such a high quality of life. Peter was very aware of the struggle we were going through, and he was great at sensing what kind of house we
would be happy with, whatever compromises that must be made. He also showed great integrity in steering us clear of deals that might look good on the surface but would not serve us well in
the long run. He wasn't pushy about his own opinions, but he told it like it is when he thought a particular property had a flaw that would probably cause us distress and/or financial loss.
We are very happy with the house we finally bought, and we are very appreciative of all the assistance Peter provided with regard to negotiating on the house and keeping the deal free from
disappointment, all the way up to the day of closing, and all the while keeping up a cheerful spirit and friendly demeanor that kept us both very positive about the whole experience. In summary, Peter is a great agent, and we will definitely give him a call for all of our future real estate needs in the Boulder area."
"Peter Stainton is Mr. Service Extraordinaire! I was under the gun to find the "home of my dreams" in a quick timeframe. Having owned 3 homes previously, I knew my want list was a bit
ambitious to say the least. Not only did he find the PERFECT home, he did so with an always positive attitude and impeccable service. He was very thorough with every step and used his
strong network to get various tasks done efficiently and effectively. I never felt pressured, only reassured during the entire process. He even arranged to have back-up contacts at his
office so I always could contact someone and feel well served. I still LOVE my home and can honestly say it was the smoothest, happiest business transaction of my life!"
"Recently our family decided to move to Boulder Colorado from out of state. Knowing little about real estate in the Boulder area we were referred to Peter Stainton of Four Star Realty.
I can honestly say that this was the most trouble free and rewarding real estate experience we've ever had.
Peter evaluated our needs and budget and, utilizing the considerable resources of his company, found us several properties fitting our criteria. We soon found the perfect home, and negotiations were smooth and quick. Thanks to valuable market insights, we soon settled on an extremely fair price with the confidence that we had made a sound investment. Once
under contract, Four Star took full responsibility for the timetable and steps necessary for a smooth closing transition. They even managed our property after closing, during the
winter, before we actually moved in.
Peter and his team are the experts in the area. Knowledgeable, professional, thorough, and dependable are all words that I would use to describe the service we received from Peter and
Four Star Realty. We have already referred them to several other families, with total confidence."

"...Purchasing and selling real estate can be very challenging and time consuming and Peter was able to keep us informed but
not overwhelmed with the process. Peter's professional approach and thorough efforts were truly appreciated and cannot be
Additionally, we appreciated Peter's attention to our needs and ability to sort through the myriad of homes on the market and
narrow into those that met our criteria...
We will not hesitate to call Peter again for help with any future help with real estate sales or purchases and would certainly
recommend him to friends or family. Peter has also been very accommodating to our growing family and we consider him a friend."
