Helping people achieve their dreams is what Pete enjoys most about his work as a real estate professional.  Having relocated seven times during his 32-year career in the health care industry he experienced first-hand the anxieties sometimes associated with buying and selling property.  Pete entered the real estate business here at Smith Mountain Lake in 2005 because he saw an opportunity to make a positive difference by providing clients with a quality real estate experience.  Whether you are buying or selling property, Pete’s “Number One Priority” is to help make your transaction as seamless and stress-free as possible.

The hallmark of Pete’s service philosophy is based on the simple premise of communication, information, and dedication.  “I make sure buyers understand the big picture,” Pete says.  “That means showing all communities the area has to offer, understanding the value that each presents and the opportunities that exist.  For sellers, I help them understand the market and why and maintain a high level of communication.”

Whether he’s helping you with pricing strategies and market analyses or pointing out the neighborhoods best suited to your lifestyle and financial needs, Pete will clearly spell out all your options so you can make a well-informed decision about your most important investment. His in-depth knowledge—acquired from 7 corporate moves, 25 years as a licensed agent and specifically as a 13-year Smith Mountain Lake resident and local agent—instills confidence and assures clients of his professional expertise.  Attention to detail and regular follow-up are paramount, according to Pete, and he stays in touch so you’ll always know what to expect. 

Having earned a bachelor’s degree in pharmacy and a master’s degree in marketing and finance, Pete is thoroughly prepared to assist clients with the complexities of today’s real estate transactions.  Complementing his professional work is his active involvement with the Boy Scouts of America.  In fact, it is the organization’s key attributes that have guided him throughout his business career.   

Pete’s enthusiasm for Smith Mountain Lake and all that it has to offer is reflected in his commitment to helping others with the sale or purchase of their Smith Mountain Lake home.  Let Pete Roberts’ experience, knowledge and uncompromising service work to your advantage in your next real estate transaction. 



He’s the best!

To say that Pete goes 'above and beyond' would be an enormous understatement. Pete took the time to understand the type of property we were looking for and helped me search, for years, until I was happy. He is a resource for all things Smith Mountain Lake. He is patient, kind and willing to help regardless of how large or small the favor. If I had a friend looking to either buy or sell in the area, there is no doubt that Pete would be my recommendation.

Pete Roberts was informative and attentive right from the beginning. With his vast knowledge and experience, Pete provided relevant market and community information to help in deciding what our listing price should be, and best time to list. He offered great contacts in both the selling of our house, and looking towards our next purchase; along with giving impactful suggestions for highlighting our home to sell. He was available whenever we needed him to answer questions, or stop by to review important information. With his extensive network of contacts, Pete was able to quickly find a great buyer for our home. His remarkable service carried through from the beginning, during and after the sale. I would highly recommend Pete for both the selling of your house, and finding your next home!

Thanks to our agent, Pete Roberts, we found our dream home at the lake. He took the time to know us and understand what we were looking for. Pete's obvious knowledge and expertise in the real estate market were a big asset in locating exactly what we were hoping to find and at the price that we felt comfortable with. He also went the extra mile after our decision was made in helping us find the resources needed to complete the transition since we were out of state residents. We highly recommend Pete Roberts for any real estate needs!

Purchasing real estate from Pete Roberts was amazing. Pete walked me through the process of buying and closing with a snap of his fingers. Not only is he a professional but he cares about every detail from start to move in and as well as after move in. He took care and made sure every detail was completed and correct. I have sold and purchased many real estate purchases, but I will say Pete Roberts made this one the most helpful and professional. He also made my day with the most beautiful thank you for working with him of flowers. He does not deserve 5 stars ..............10 stars would say it all. He is # 1

Pete was AWESOME! Everything you would want in a realtor. We had recently bought a condo as a second home here at the lake then quickly realized we wanted to be full time at SML and needed a bigger place! We had the privilege of working with Pete. He listened to our wants and needs and was very thoughtful and prompt in all communication. He knows this market and he guided us at every step to ensure we were getting what we wanted. Vince and I highly recommend Pete Roberts for your real estate needs.

Pete was so patient with us as we looked at many, many houses. He was incredibly knowledgeable about the area and took time to show us additional sights. He quickly learned what we liked and didn’t like and then worked hard to make sure we found just the right house. I would highly recommend Pete!!

Pete was great to work with! Deciding to sell our house at the lake was a tough one but Pete made it as easy as possible for us. I hope we are able to return to the lake one day and will definitely reach out to Pete for help.

Peter is a great Realtor. We were very happy with his knowledge of The Smith Mtn Lake area known as 'Paradise.' He did everything possible to help us make our home buying process as good as possible. I would highly recommend him & we would definitely use him again if we buy another home ??

Pete Roberts was extremely helpful during our search for a home. His local knowledge of the area was so great and it really helped us to narrow our areas of focus. Pete was very patient as we looked through listings from a distance and was able to gather information quickly on anything we had interest in. In a very short time period, he helped us find our dream 2nd home and helped to get a great price!

Very responsive and professional. He actively listened to exactly what we were looking for and hit the mark after showing us the very first house!!! I have a great deal of trust in his honesty and diligence. You can not go wrong using Pete Roberts.

Knowledgeable and enthusiastic regarding Waters Edge. He stayed with the transaction after the signing of the contract through to closing. Used a gentle hands on approach to make sure things went smoothly.

Genuinely interested in the client's best interests; takes a low key/no pressure approach to achieve a positive outcome. Sold one condo for me; brought me to the purchase of another home; and listed a lot/land which is yet to sell.
