Profile

Peter is a long time Kimberley resident and well known throughout the community. In 1990, the coast was calling, and Peter left his home of Kimberley for the big city of Vancouver drawn by the exciting and challenging opportunities in the fast growing film and television industry. There he worked on site in location management for well over a decade amassing many screen credits and gaining valuable management experience in the process. In 2008 in an attempt settle himself and his family, Peter returned to his home town of Kimberley with his new born twins Nick and Sofie, with their little sister Quinn joining the picture soon after. At this time, Peter began the transition from TV and Film to the challenging world of Real Estate working through UBC Sauder School of Business. He re-invented himself becoming licensed in rental property management and established a successful business in the local property markets. 6+ years have since passed, and last year Peter added strata management to his business profile, becoming licensed in August 2014. “We as a family enjoy all the Kimberley has to offer, the outdoor activities, camping, fishing, skiing, hiking, lakes and other organized sports.”

The transition into real estate began in Victoria and was fostered by a new born son, and a desire to be more available to his child, which as many know is very difficult in the world of commercial kitchens.
