Peter is the principal of Peter Blackshaw Belconnen. After 27 years in the industry, Peter's solid reputation for consistent, excellent work means that over 80% of his business is on a repeat or referral basis.
He prides himself on seeking to make a difference in his chosen industry. There are good reasons for this.
Firstly, Peter loves what he does for a living. He has excellent communication skills and his professional, genuine style has resulted in Peter forming an extraordinarily wide range of strong relationships with customers and clients alike in addition to forging connections throughout the local business community. He loves the property market, but not just because it's about houses and investment. Rather, it's because it involves people and gives him the chance to exceed their expectations, always with a sense of warmth and company pride.
Secondly, Peter loves the competitive nature of real estate. Helping achieve the best results possible for everyone concerned is a priority. This helps explain his achievements in auctioneering; he was voted the Allhomes People's Choice Auctioneer of the year for 2014, REIACT 2011 Auctioneer of the Year and the 2011 Canberra Times People's Choice Auctioneer of the Year. Winning the acclaim of his industry peers and the community simultaneously is a true gauge of Peter's widespread popularity. He was also the winner of the REIACT Auctioneer of the Year in 2007.
Peter's experience and product knowledge is second to none. Not only does he have a depth of experience and organisational skills that only many years in real estate in Canberra can give, he is able to personalise his approach to cater for a broad range of clients and their properties, having an extensive understanding of marketing and the influences on decision making which are invaluable during property negotiations.
Peter lives in Hawker with his wife and four sons. His favourite pastimes are spending time with his family, keeping fit, reading and maintaining his pursuit of continued personal development. While he is an avid supporter of both the Raiders and Carlton, Peter's real sporting love is cricket. He enjoys summer and all the cricket on offer.
