David's wife and partner, Georgia, originally from Boston, also spent summers on Cape Cod until settling in Bourne & Falmouth for a number of years before meeting David and moving to Chatham permanently. She, too, has a nautical background, and can trace her heritage to a great uncle who chartered his schooner, the Effie M. Morrissey (now the Ernestina), from Gloucester to Cape Cod & New Bedford, and after whom the Gloucester Fisherman Statue is modeled. She has an intimate knowledge of various towns and water ways on the Cape – valuable information in marketing Cape Cod properties.

Our experience began in the mid-eighties with residential real estate sales from the Cape Cod Canal, gradually moving east to Chatham, Orleans & Eastham. In addition, the Petraskos have transacted personal real estate business in the towns of Wareham, Plymouth, Bourne (several properties), Falmouth, Cotuit, Marstons Mills, and Chatham (several properties), so they are acquainted first-hand with being buyers & sellers, in addition to being able to offer professional real estate services for both these parties.

From a previous background in insurance, David can lend his expertise in the area of insuring properties, assessing home values & addressing issues of repair and liability for property owners. Having owned his own insurance company on Cape Cod prior to entering into the real estate market has also given David valuable business skills in marketing, maintaining client relationships, and operating a proficient & profitable business.

An English major with a minor in psychology, Georgia’s previous experience as a teacher (employed in the Cape Cod school system for over 20 years) is extremely helpful in working buyers and sellers during often emotional and stressful times of buying, selling, and relocating. Her language and communication skills (former magazine publisher (Cape Cod Writer’s Corner) and guest speaker on writing & speaking skills) have provided the means for fluent and accurate communications to customers, clients, and attorneys etc. as well as allowing for the creation of vibrant & innovative advertising.

Together we provide a successful history of marketing and sales for sellers, and diligent, personalized searches for buyers which culminate in timely purchases and often repeat business from both clients & customers, as well as personal referrals. We are both brokers of our own companies (Cape Harbor Realty and Chatham Harbor Realty) and offer expanded Seller Agency services, with Seller Sub-Agency allegiance from other Real Estate Companies. We are members in good standing of the Cape Cod and Islands Association of Realtors (multiple listing service) since 1985 and have national recognition since 2001 for our sales of hospitality properties.

We have numerous means of advertising Cape Cod properties from websites to various links to diverse printed media. We do periodic mailings via flyers, letters, and postcards, as well as phone and email contact to procure both properties and buyers. Having completed many personal real estate transactions on Cape Cod, we empathize with the buyer and seller, devoting ourselves to each deal until it is consummated in the manner we would demand for ourselves.
