A little about me...

Born in Vancouver, British Columbia, Peter has a Bachelor of Science Degree in Biochemistry from the University of Victoria. In 2000, Pete headed to Los Angeles to further his professional career after receiving a job offer from UBS Warburg, a Swiss-based investment bank, where he worked as an analyst for two and a half years. Banking was an invaluable experience and provided him with a very strong background in finance and analytics. In 2003, Pete decided to pursue a more balanced lifestyle when he moved to Mammoth Lakes, CA.

This is where he started his real estate career in 2003 as a full-time Realtor. Two years later he met his wife, DeDe, a San Diego native. In July 2005, Pete and DeDe got married in Mammoth Lakes and they now have a beautiful little girl, Grace, and an energetic son, Sawyer! Pete and DeDe relocated to San Diego in 2014 to enjoy all that San Diego has to offer. Pete has been working full-time as a licensed Realtor in California since 2003, therefore he brings plenty of transaction experience and knowledge when serving his clients. Pete is very proud to say that in October of 2014, he became an American Citizen.
The foundation to Pete’s real estate business is providing the absolute highest level of customer service and dedication. He balances providing in-depth knowledge and analysis with being patient and empathetic at the same time. Pete’s approach to guiding his clients through the real estate buying/selling process is valued by his clients, as illustrated in his testimonials and reviews. A significant portion of Pete’s business that he has developed over the years has come from client referrals – the ultimate testimonial! Pete understands the value and benefits that he offers his clients through his dynamic and hard-working real estate team – Swanson & Associates. From start to finish, and beyond, Pete is there for his clients 100%.

"Janicke recently helped me, and my fiancé purchase our first home. Let me say this, do not underestimate her experience in this industry. At first, it felt like I was working with a typical SALES rep, but that is not the case with Janicke. She has been doing this for years, and very quickly, my fiancé and I saw that experience at work. We truly felt like we were working with a friend who was goingRead MoreRead Less
"I've got to give a big shoutout to Janicke Swanson for the awesome experience they provided when my clients moved from Philly to La Jolla.

They kept things crystal clear and totally upfront, which immediately cliRead MoreRead Less

"Janicke and Kasey did a great job representing us on the buyer's side of the purchase of our home in PB. They were patient and professional on what turned out to be a relatively long process given our lack of familiarity with the real estate market in San Diego.

"Janicke has helped us purchase a home and sell another home mostly recently in the Pacific Beach area. Both experiences about 10 yrs apart were extremely positive.

"Janicke Swanson and her team sold a property for us in the Crown Point area. These were difficult circumstances, and Janicke and every member of her team was compassionate and attentive every step of the way. Janicke is extremely knowledgeable and responsive to every question and concern. I highly recommend Janicke and her team."
"As a first time buyer, I felt completely comfortable with Janicke as our agent. Prior to us officially signing her as our agent, she met us for coffee and took the time to answer all our questions about the home buying process, gave us advice, and simply made the process much less stressful. She and her Kasey were very quick to respond to any and all of our needs and were very knowledgeable about Read MoreRead Less
