About Mike Petras
I am an Air Force Veteran and a full time Real Estate Broker with over 35 years real estate experience in the Maryland area.
I am a life long Maryland resident and know the local real estate market very well. You will find lots of helpful links on my website . My daughter Joanne is a licensed real estate agent who works with me along with my wife Brenda. Over the years we have helped hundreds of Military families moving in and out of the Maryland , Virginia and Washington D. C. area. We also give a Home Buyer Rebate to all Veteran and Active Duty Home Buyers that is more than USAA or Navy Federal ! We take a family approach to our business and you can click the testimonial tab on my website to see what some of our past clients have to say about the service we have provided them.

""In November of 2002, after a four year tour overseas my wife and I returned to the United States along with our dog max. I was assigned to NCIS headquarters at the Washington Navy Yard and as first time home buyers in an area we had never visited before we were clueless at best. Mike and Brenda Petras took the time to introduce us to the area and educate us on the ins and outs of purchasing a home including where and how to obtain competitive financing as a member of the military. Mike and his entire family worked long and hard to help us find the right home. They continued to be a huge help even after we moved into our home. And when we were transferred three years later, they made sure that we could leave knowing that our property was in good hands until a buyer was found. We are happy to call them our friends today and Heidi and I cannot thank the Petras' enough for their professional guidance and hospitality during our time in Waldorf. You guys have ruined us for all other realtors who follow by setting such a high standard!!!!! And for that we thank you Mike, Brenda, Joanne and Mikie Jr."Mike Petras - Veteran

""Over the past 6 years you and your staff have gone and continue to go way beyond your line of call to accommodate us in all our needs in buyer/selling multiple properties and we can't thank you enough. Always very detail oriented, watching for things, making sure we were/are comfortable with the way things were progressing is the hallmark of the extraordinary professionalism you have shown us. What we are writing does not come close to doing you justice and we have certainly realized 100 fold how fortunate we are to have you as our agent. We have offered many of our friends and family members your business card/service and will continue to do so. You and your company are the ultimate in honest professionalism and we appreciate and truly thanks you. Sylvon & Melissa Josiah U.S. Navy Veteran."Mike Petras - Veteran

""I bought my very first house from Mike on 2004. Buying a home can be a stressful time, like buying a new car. Mike and his family were great through the whole process and I rather buy a 100 houses then a new car. Their kindness doesn't stop either, after you buy your home and sign the paper work, they are always willing to help with any questions. I came down on orders to move again, and I elected to rent my house for a couple of years, but plan to sell when I return and buy a new house and will use Mike again, and would recommend him to anyone whether they are selling or buying. Thanks so much for everything."Mike Petras - Service Member
""I met the Petras family in November 2002, when I moved to the area on military orders. I was happy to know Mike was a fellow Air Force member and Brenda and Joanne were great at rounding out the team. They are a family team, taking care of their extended military family. My husband and I continue our relationship with all of them even today, over a year since they helped us sell our house, before moving to our next duty station in Warner Robins, GA. We recommend the Petras team to everyone we know moving to the DC/Maryland area and are looking forward to purchasing another house with them when we return to the area in a few years."Mike Petras - Veteran

""A friend of ours referred Mike Petras to us when we were trying to buy our first house. Mike did not disappoint, unlike some realtors who only think about the dollar signs, Mike put the needs and wants of his customers first. He helped walk us through everything and answered any questions we had no matter what time it was. He also kept what we needed in mind the whole time and told us not to rush any decision even if it meant not getting a house at all (which with Mike's help we did)! We really appreciate how Mike goes above and beyond and also stays very down to earth and in touch with his clients"Mike Petras - Veteran

""Mike Petras was able to sell our house in a down market. We tried other agents and the property languished on the market for nearly three years. We listed with Mike and the house was sold within two months. We would never buy or sell another house through any other agent in the area."Mike Petras - Veteran

""I have bought and/or sold 4 houses with Mike Petras over the last 10 years. In every case, Mike is the consummate professional and never fails to look out for the best interests and those of the family. He has given great advice and counseling over the years. He truly understands our needs as a military family and I'd recommend his services to anyone looking for a smooth and comfortable real estate transaction. Thanks Mike!"Mike Petras - Service Member

"" I would like to thank Mike and his family for helping my family find and buy our home. I was changing duty stations from San Diego to Washington D.C. I called Mike late in the evening for him to show me some rentals in the Waldorf area and he was more than willing to come and show me some homes within minutes of my phone call. I let Mike know that I was also interested in buying a home and he was more than helpful in explaining the process to me. Mike was there for my family through the whole process and was always available to answer any questions no matter what time it was. I greatly appreciate his help and when I do any other real estate in this area I will again ask for his help. Again, Thank you Mike, for all your help and expertise. "Mike Petras - Veteran
""My wife and I were coming back from an overseas assignment with the U.S. Air Force. We were really looking for a home and something to call our own. Mike Petras was recommended to us by a good friend and it was the best thing we did. Mike worked with us before we even came back to the states and was keeping us updated on homes available. Once we arrived Mike took us in and showed us around. We looked at a few home but found the one we really wanted. It was the best decision we ever made. Mike made sure he worked with all our needs for schools and it worked out. Our kids loved the house and love the school they are in. He was with us the entire time and made sure we had everything we needed. We were first time home buyers so Mike made sure we had the help we needed before we made our final decision. Since then mike would call us to see how the house was working out and it has been a year since we purchased. We would not change a thing. Thank you Mike Petras."Mike Petras - Veteran

"" I am a retired USAF Veteran from Andrews AFB. When I was looking for a house, he found me one to rent. I eventually bought it. When it was time to retire, he listed it and sold it in 24 hours(market was good then). I moved away but returned 3 years later and looked him up. He found me the perfect house -- exactly what I needed. great guy to work with and I am indebted to him. When it is time to sell, I can guarantee he will be the first realtor I call ! "Mike Petras - Veteran
""Meeting Mike was a god sent. He truly cares about your needs as a home buyer. Mike would give us his honest opinion about all the neighborhoods we looked at, school systems and values/conditions of the homes. Mike made us feel like we were his only clients and always got back to us immediately. He knew about our financial situation and was able to find us the best home within our budget. We couldn't have asked for a better Realtor than Mike. With no doubt we will be calling him back when we are ready to sell our house when our family relocates next year."Mike Petras - Veteran

""My husband and I were looking for a broker who could help us navigate our way through the process of obtaining a VA loan as first time home buyers. We chose a home that was in foreclosure, which is always challenging. Mike Petras was there every step of the way to guide us through this lengthy and stressful process. He spent many of his evenings at our house drafting and redrafting the documentation necessary to make this type of purchase happen. His numerous contacts and familiarity with the area proved to be very enabling. We could not have done it without him!"Mike Petras - Veteran

""Mike Petras made my real estate transactions smooth and easier than I could have ever expected. He kept me fully informed of any factors affecting a scheduling closing. He was extremely effective at resolving all problems that could affected a scheduled closing. Mike Petras took prompt action to all my requests during my transactions. Mr. Petras' in-depth knowledge maximized the use of my veteran's benefits which allowed me to purchase the home I could only dream of. I would highly recommend Mike Petras and the members of Showcase reality to anyone looking into making a real estate transaction."Mike Petras - Veteran
