David Peterson

Russ Lyon Sotheby's International Realty


Dave Peterson brings both passion and a deep sense of responsibility to his role as a Scottsdale area Realtor.

He sees himself not as a sales person, but as a professional who guides his clients through the major life event of buying or selling a home.

Since Dave believes it's his responsibility to negotiate the most favorable outcome for each of his clients, he shuns the opportunity to add to his income by representing both sides in a transaction. It's simply not possible to get the best price and terms for two parties with opposite goals. Dave does represent both buyers and sellers - but never both sides in the same transaction.

Dave lives and works by the motto: "Don't worry, I'll take care of it." His clients soon learn that whether it's a problem to be solved or a detail to be handled, they can count on him to do just that.

When you add Dave's patience and his genuine liking for people to the mix, you get a combination that leaves clients knowing that they have a friend and a protector as well as a guide.

He's built a loyal following by always listening first to fully understand his client's wants and needs; making sure they understand both the process and the significance of each decision they make and each document they sign; putting their best interests ahead of making a sale; and being available and responsive to them 24 hours a day. Whether it takes a day or several years to find that just right home, he never pushes.

Because he knows the North Scottsdale real estate market and its housing inventory so well, he's skilled at creating an accurate market analysis, so his listings will sell for the highest price in the least amount of time. His detailed marketing plan always includes professional photography, followed by extensive on-line exposure, open houses, notification to his buyer list, and more.

Long distance clients appreciate that he is tech savvy and will use e-mail, text, photo, and video messaging to get them the information they want and need.

Whether working for the seller or the buyer, Dave is a fierce and skillful negotiator. He also maintains good relationships with all the other professionals involved in a real estate transaction - a practice that leads to cooperation and trouble-free closings.

After a wonderful childhood growing up in Minnesota. Dave moved to Arizona to attend Arizona State University where he studies Business & Photography. After college he began working as an Aerial Photographer for Landiscor Aerial Information in Phoenix. After several enjoyable years of flying & photographing most of the Southwestern states of the US. Dave decided to get his feet on the ground and pursue his dream of helping his clients with their real estate transactions.

Dave's passion and enthusiasm for real estate means that it doubles as both his work and his hobby. His other hobbies include Aviation, Photography, Competitive road racing, Mountain biking and all other outdoor activities.

When you want a Scottsdale area REALTOR(R) who will protect you, guide you, and always put your best interests first, call Dave Peterson. To paraphrase several of his past clients, Dave will go above and beyond for you - and he won't quit until he can "Make your dreams come True"

Please give Dave a call at 480-980-0404 and tell him what he can do for you.
