Peter is no stranger to the Diamond Valley, having lived in the area since the late 1980s when he and wife Robyn ‘owner-built’ their mud-brick home over a two-year period on a 30-acre block at St Andrews. A fully-licensed real estate agent and experienced auctioneer, Peter has been in the industry for almost 30 years during which he has established an enviable reputation for his professional, down-to-earth approach to selling real estate. “As a member of the Barry Plant Group we can bring more buyers to sellers because of the breadth of the group’s operations across Melbourne and this can only benefit vendors in terms of better results from their sale”. Peter has never lost sight of the importance people place on the sale or purchase of a property – particularly if it’s the family home – and leaves no stone unturned to make sure both his vendor and buyer are kept fully informed every step of the way and are comfortable with all aspects of the sale. Real estate in Peter’s view is every bit about people as it is about property and he has the rare quality of being able to establish a close rapport with all parties to the transaction based on understanding, trust and mutual respect. Apart from home sales, he has considerable experience in the rural property market and land subdivisions. “The basics are very important. Proper presentation, realistic pricing and strong marketing are fundamental to achieving a great result. Short cuts will not work. Attention to detail in essential” A dedicated family man, Peter spends as much time as his busy life in real estate will permit, with Robyn and their three daughters. Peter enjoys gardening, caravanning, reading and taking long walks.
