Peter was born and raised in Ballarat and has been involved in many local clubs and charity groups during his adult life. His education at Ballarat Grammar was fundamental to the formation of his beliefs and values, and largely why he takes his commitment of providing support and assistance to the wider Ballarat community very seriously. He considers Ballarat a simply Great Place to Live.
A qualified Hairdresser, Peter owned and operated his successful salon for twenty years before making the transition into real estate as a Sales Agent for then named Cosgrave Real Estate, notching up 5 years of selling experience from 2006 - 2010.
After a very successful foray into the motor vehicle industry being heavily involved in the establishment of a major German manufacturer in the Ballarat market, Peter has now returned to his passion which is the Real Estate Industry, but in the role of General Manager as he leads a team of 12 successful Harcourts Agents in their quest to achieve outstanding results and gain Number 1 market share in the local area. In his words, he ‘feels like I have come home’.
Over the last 10 years Peter has been enthusiastically involved in the acquisition and subsequent development & sales of a large Residential Land Subdivision on the fringe of Ballarat. He has bought and sold numerous investment properties along with his wife Brenda and together, they have operated several local Bed & Breakfast businesses for tourists and short term visitors to Ballarat.
Peter is passionate about this industry and understands the expectations of service that go along with it extremely well. He is also passionate about the Harcourts Brand and will work closely with the Harcourts Ballarat Sales Team and the massive Harcourts network to assist and implement new and challenging systems & procedures that will take the Harcourts Ballarat Office to a new level of professionalism and client services.
Weekends for Peter are often spent down on the coast at Ocean Grove, where he enjoys time with his family to relax and unwind. Considering his love for boating and the accessibility of the newly developed Queenscliff Marina, Peter jumps at the opportunity to venture out into Port Phillip Bay with friends on board whenever the weather conditions permit! And if he’s not on the water, he’s in the kitchen trying out new culinary delights!
