ORIGINS: Peter’s home is Perth where he lives near the beach with his family, but he has strong roots to rural Australia having spent his youth on a 700-acre farm in the Perth hills, with all the down to earth skills that that came with it. He grew up on horses, swimming, playing tennis, learning the piano, riding motorbikes, travelling all over the world with his family (his Mum is German and his Dad Australian), scuba diving, snow skiing and generally having a wonderful time. His early achievements included being the Sate School Boy Equestrian Champion. Peter studied Geology at The University of Western Australia. Science, although interesting, was not his true calling. Post University Peter moved to Japan to study Japanese language, culture and continue his study of Karate which he’d taken up upon moving to the city at 18. He became quite fluent in Japanese and went on to earn his black belt in Go-Ju-Kai Karate.
EXPERIENCE IN PROPERTY: After returning to Perth, Peter started his real estate career in 1994 in Perth’s Western Suburbs. Within two years he had progressed from a sales rep to a fully licensed Triennial Certificate holding Real Estate Agent with an Advanced Diploma in Business and went on to launch his own firm. That was followed by an apprenticeship in Property Development with his father Graeme Robertson, specialising in rezoning and subdivision of residential, commercial and tourism assets, around the city and throughout regional WA, north and south. He expanded his real estate business over the next 18 years with a few mergers, acquisitions, sales and restructures along the way. In 2012 Peter merged his business with long-time friend and doyen of the Real Estate Industry, William Porteous, joining William Porteous Properties, and has been a driving force within that organisation, thoroughly enjoying always learning, growing, expanding and improving how he and his team do business, ensuring that add maximum value to all their interactions. Continuous evolution, learning and growth are essential if you have the desire and drive to be the best. Peter thrives on this and at the same time helping everyone around him on their journey.
