Peter Gragnani did not set out to make real estate his life's work, having graduated with a degree in Criminal Justice. However, actually working in that field for a couple of years convinced Peter that his destiny was elsewhere. (more)
The next stop on his journey of self-awareness included making the Dean's list and graduating from the Culinary Institute of America in Hyde Park, NY. He honed his culinary skills at the prestigious Patroon and Butterfield 81 restaurants in Manhattan. Two rewarding but pressure-filled years later, Peter felt the call of the west and moved to Los Angeles.
Upon arriving in LA, Peter earned his real estate license and began his career as a buyer's agent in the beautiful environs of the Pacific Palisades. "I started out only representing buyers," he says, "because the agency did not take any listings. Maybe that's why I have so many buyers as clients now!"
Before long, Peter joined a successful brokerage in Beverly Hills. As he gained experience, knowledge and insight into other aspects of the luxury homes side of the real estate industry, Peter has earned important professional designations including CSSS (Certified Short Sale Specialist), CPFS (Certified Pre Foreclosure Specialist), HRC (Home Retention Counselor), E-Pro, CRS (Certified Residential Specialist) and Certified HAFA (Home Affordable Foreclosure Alternatives) Specialist, as well as being listed as one of the top 10 most dependable realtors in Los Angeles in 2008.
Most importantly, however, Peter has earned the trust, respect and loyalty of luxury home buyers and sellers from the exclusive ocean-front enclaves of Malibu to the grand manors of South Pasadena and some of the most prestigious neighborhoods in-between. His high-touch, highly individualized personal service is fast becoming legendary even in the rarefied real estate world of Southern California.
One of the reasons for his rapidly rising status among luxury homeowners is his propensity to prepare sumptuous gourmet "house-warming" meals for his clients upon closing their deals.
His culinary reputation notwithstanding, Peter's intimate knowledge of the area's higher-end homes, his honest-to-a-fault approach to every detail of the buying or selling process, and his ability to market luxury properties with the most effective techniques all combine to make the real estate process a uniquely rewarding experience for his clients.
