What Clients Are Saying
"The broker was not important – the agent, Peter Garruba, was Peter Garruba is the most knowledgeable, professional, personable and patient agent we have ever worked with!”
Mara Karg
"I chose Peter Garruba, not because I knew him in the community, but because of his general enthusiasm and go-get-’em attitude about life in general. I felt that would be conveyed to whatever buyers he would contact. Also, he kept calm and cool, even when things got messy or iffy or just plain difficult. This helped to keep ME calm and cool, too, which I appreciated. Another plus is that Peter was ALWAYS very helpful, willing to help, to pitch in when I was packing, to come to the house and meet contractors and others so that I did not have to drive out from Manhattan. Very important to me and very helpful. HIs advice was always sound. I would certainly recommend him.”
Leslie P Hayes, Manhattan (Seller)
"Peter is the best!”
Anthony Diliberto, Orangeburg (Buyer)
Peter was a great help in finding the perfect new home for us. We relocated from Canada to New York and had very little knowledge of the area. Peter took the time to show us around and explain the various areas. We initially started by viewing rental properties but eventually decided that buying was a better approach. Peter took the change of direction and patiently stuck with us, never resorting to any pressure tactics to get the sale done. Thanks Peter!”
Tim, Rockland County, NY
"We have known Peter for years, since before he started his real estate career at KW. We never had any doubt that he would take good care of us, and that it would be a great experience. Peter advised us of the timeline, pushed us to get the house beautiful and ready to show, and arranged for a fabulous photography session to highlight its best points for online marketing. Peter was super, incredibly patient with us, while keeping the process moving. He was wonderful to work with from start to finish. His enthusiasm about the whole thing rubbed off on us, making the entire process about as painless as something like this could possibly be. Peter knew exactly how to price the house and when to list it to produce a sale in an amazingly quick 6 days! We would recommend him to anyone looking sell a home in Rockland County.”
Julie Schwartz, Chestnut Ridge, NY
"Peter Garruba was friendly and very helpful. He made the home buying experience much less stressful for myself and my loved ones. And thanks to him, I found a perfect and affordable home. :-)”
Danielle Just, Valley Cottage (Buyer)
"Peter made sure that we didn’t over pay for a home. In addition, we always felt like he had our best interest. Peter was very flexible and accommodating. He often met with us if we found a listing we were interested in that very day. If we had a question, it did not matter what time of day or night it was, he would respond quickly :)”
Melissa and Alex
Our friend assured us he was a great guy. Inspiring on all fronts. This guy is patient, helpful, ethical and hard working. Not just good at his job, but a good person, period. Creating a real service to the community. We could not be happier or more grateful. Kindness is a leadership skill. I hope Peter is acknowledged for his dedication.
Keith Schuerholz, Oakland
Peter was simply put – the best. He demonstrated knowledge & patience & courtesy all at the same time. I was most impressed by his accessibility no matter what time of day or night & weekends. He guided us through the process with frequent updates. He is a true professional and if I were back in NY, rest assured I would use his services again. He is missed.
Mrs. Ortiz - Charlotte, NC
"We have known Peter for years. When it was time to buy a new home, there was clearly no other choice. Peter Garuba is to realtors what Zeus is to the gods. Peter handled every aspect of our purchase with a thoroughness that allowed us to be at ease throughout the entire process. He made our home buying experience a pleasure from the moment we embarked on our journey together. Buying a home doesn’t have to be a stressful experience provided you choose the right realtor. Peter Garuba is that person.”

"Wonderful professional miracle worker Thank You, Peter”
David Kroning 20 west lake dr tuxedo park NY (Seller)
"Peter took the time to meet with us initially in order to better understand our needs and concerns. We were very impressed with his attentiveness and the interest he took in us as clients. We had been working with another realtor prior to meeting Peter and had a nightmare of an experience. Taking that into account, Peter assisted us every step of the way! His sense of humor helps too :) We would 100% recommend Peter and Keller Williams Hudson Valley to anyone!”
Justin & Ponnu John, Blauvelt, NY (Buyer)
"Peter Garruba is a knowledgable and dedicated real estate professional. He has the answers to your reaal estate questions. But, beyond that he is friendly, charming, and has a great sense of humor. Working with Peter on a real estate deal will get you the results you want and find you a good new friend.”
Ari Schwartz, Chestnut Ridge, NY
"Peter Garruba was extremely prompt with every single request we had and the communication was great. Peter Garruba met and exceeded all of our expectations and made himself available anytime we asked. We may buy another house just to hire Peter again. Simply put Peter made the process as seamless as he could have. When purchasing a home there are a ton of wheels in motion and more often than not we gave Peter requests with little or no notice. This was never an issue and Peter always got us the information that we needed, and more! He was someone we were able to rely upon during this process.”
Michael Lofaro and Lauren Schroeder
"Peter made the process of selling our house an excellent experience. His good energy, confidence and optimism was important to my wife and I. His intelligence, charm, knowledge and integrity was a large factor in selecting him as our broker, and he managed to exceed our expectations. Thanks Peter!”
Larry Horodner (Seller)
Eighty years old – 49 years in her house – the prospect of selling and moving was daunting. Peter Garruba to the rescue! From his first interview with me through the closing, Peter was on top of all details. He was respectful of my needs and confident about tackling any issues. Quick repairs to the basement stairs needed? Peter had a name for me. At that first interview, he promised this life-changing event would be as stress-free as possible. Peter Garruba delivered! I’m glad he was my agent.
Barbara Murphy, Nanuet
Peter has the patience of a saint! It took us close to a year of searching to find the right house and make it to closing, and Peter was nothing but patient, cheerful, and supportive the entire time — even when we were seeing houses on a weekly basis for months. He feels more like a good friend than an agent, and we would recommend him in a heartbeat to anyone!
