I used Seth's services to purchase my home in Fitchburg. I hadn't purchased a house in over 30 years so I was a bit rusty in knowing what and how to proceed in buying a house. Seth is very knowledgeable in the real estate business and helped me understand the process of looking for a home and negotiating with the buyer. Seth was very active in looking for homes I'd be interested in immediately when they hit the market. That was very crucial in finding me my home. Seth was quickly able to understand what I needed in a new home vs what I wanted. I would definitely use Seth as my real estate agent again. I also would recommend Seth to family and friends.

I enjoyed working with Seth and will recommend him to friends and coworkers that are interested in buying a home. Seth was very responsive over whatever hours I would contact him, across text, e-mail, and cell phone. He directed me toward fair, yet advantageous offers and coached me to ask the right questions while viewing properties.
Buyer / Madison / 2015 07/14/2015
As first time home buyers, we were looking for someone who could guide us through every step of the process and answer our never ending questions. Seth was incredibly knowledgeable and helpful. At the same time, Seth really allowed us to make our through the process at our own pace and based on our priorities. He was never pushy or really "selling" us on a particular place. Highly recommend!
Buyer / Madison / 2013 07/15/2015
Seth helped us buy a vacant lot that we are going to build on. He was a valuable asset during the process. He worked with the seller to verify perc tests and water quality tests. This lot had a shared well that Seth did investigation on for us. The process went very well and we plan to use him to help us sell our house soon.
Buyer&Seller / Stoughton / 2014&2015 07/15/2015
Seth was our real estate agent for buying a house in Oregon, WI. We started the process while still living in another state and Seth was very flexible in his ability to support us from afar. After moving back, Seth lined up several homes for us to see and was able to provide direction based on our long list of requirements. The most helpful aspect of working with Seth was his experience and recommendations throughout the process. All steps were laid out clearly and he was able to refer us to other helpful professionals along the way. Overall Seth is pleasant to work with we're happy to be living in the house he helped us find and purchase.
Buyer / Oregon / 2014 07/15/2015
Seth helped us find our first home. He was able to find us the best homes that met our criteria to look at, so we found our dream home in less than a month!
Buyer / Madison / 2014 07/15/2015
There is hardly enough room to say all the good things about Seth. Do you want LOW pressure? Do you want a real professional? Do you want someone who can pull the deal together? Seth Peterson is the realtor that we found to be low pressure, professional, and able to close the deal. We bought our third house through him and are looking for our fourth, not once has he tried to rush or pressure us to write the offer. He is extremely patient when it comes to the search process. Probably the best decision we made was switching agents to Seth. Working with Seth is a great experience, he is an expert in real estate. His prompt response to emails, texts and phone calls, puts your worries at ease. He responds to questions anytime. He never allowed the process to surprise us, he had answers to all of our questions and his knowledge of real estate is superb. He was never in a rush or impatient, he gives knowledgeable advise on every aspect of the process, we never felt he was pushy. He is dedicated to finding YOU THE HOME YOU WANT, I recommend him without reservation.
Buyer / Madison / 2012 07/15/2015
Seth did an outstanding job on our long distance purchase of our home. He gave us in person service as well as utilized email to expedite our documents and communications.
Buyer / Sun Prairie / 2012 07/15/2015
Seth was great to work with. He is very knowledgeable and reliable. When a situation arose, he presented us with options without giving his opinion (unless we solicited his opinion). He was able to smooth out a couple rough patches we encountered along the way.
Buyer&Seller / Madison / 2014 07/15/2015
Seth was just incredible to work with. He quickly responded to all of our inquiries and gave honest opinions about the properties we looked at. He spent tons of time with us and looked at many properties over a year period. Never once did we feel like we were "bothering" him. He was enthusiastic the entire time.
Seth really shined when we began the negotiation and closing process on our house. Seth was a fantastic negotiator and kept in constant contact. He negotiated a great price for us.
He showed his value as we went through the loan process, too. We ended up getting a renovation loan, which made the loan process extremely complex. Without him guiding us and keeping us on track though the inspection and appraisal process, we would not have closed in time and may have lost the deal.
Home buying is really complex, particularly for first-timers like us. Seth was worth his weight in gold, and we are very grateful for all his help and guidance. Thanks Seth!
Buyer / Madison / 2012 07/15/2015
Seth walked us through a process that took eight months AFTER we had found the house we wanted to buy! It was an incredibly complex deal, with lot line changes (involving the town, the city, and the county), a pre-closing occupancy agreement, a shared well agreement, power of attorney issues, a new furnace, and heaps of detailed conversations that flew way over our heads as first time homebuyers. Seth demonstrated himself to be a realtor with integrity, keeping our needs in mind, and very patient with a long process. It could have been exhausting or frustrating, but he took it in stride. When we bumped into an issue or question he'd not dealt with before (since our deal was such a quirky one), he quickly sought out answers for us. He laid out options and talked about relative merits of different steps we could take and let us ask a lot of questions and then decide. Seth is solid.
Buyer / Madison / 2011 07/15/2015
Seth did an excellent job as our realtor. After our house didn't sell the first time with another company, we decided to try Seth at Cooper Spansy, who convinced us he could sell our home. He had really great statistics about what a good price range was, but left it up to us on what our final price would be. He was never pushy but always available for questions, advice, and updates through the whole process. We knew Seth cared about us from him going above and beyond what other realtors had failed to do in the past. We highly recommend Seth to anyone looking for a friendly, knowledgeable realtor who is capable of getting the job done and making it as smooth as possible.
Seller / Madison / 2011 07/15/2015
Seth is an outstanding realtor. He is very professional, very sensitive to the clients interests and needs, very accommodating, and very persistant.
He spent hours drive my wife and I around. It took us a long time because our desires were so "fickle" yet he patiently kept working with us and refining our searches. He was wonderful.
We would certainly recommend him to any prospective seller or buyer.
Buyer / Fitchburg / 2011 07/15/2015
Seth Peterson showed my wife and me sixteen (16) houses in three (3) days. We flew in from Seattle on a short trip. Seth was great! We would highly recommend him to anyone looking for property in the Madison area.
Buyer / Madison / 2011 07/15/2015
I can't thank Seth enough. He was efficient, direct and courteous. I both bought and sold my home in Madison, WI with Seth and I would do it all over again. It was completely stress free.
Buyer/Madison/2013 & Seller/Madison/2015 08/19/2015
Seth has been a diligent and excellent real estate professional over the last 6 years that I have known him. He helped me purchase my first home in Madison and he helped me sell it 6 years later. He is always prompt with information and willing to give me his opinions without being pushy. He is a pleasure to work with and I trust him explicitly. I know my Madison home owner's experience was so positive because he helped me find just the right place to live and to sell my home when I had to move. I recommend him with no reservations.
Seller / Madison / 2016 07/29/2016
Seth was great. He explained in detail all of the steps of the process to make sure we knew what was going on and was always prompt with accomplishing every step of the process. He was knowledgable, always provided options, and helped us make choices we were comfortable with.
Buyer / McFarland / 2016 07/29/2016
We contacted Seth to help us find a place in Madison as we were relocating from out of state. He was extremely helpful in assisting us with our home purchase--very quick to respond and helped us tremendously with negotiations. We highly recommend! Thank you!
