Peter started his career in real estate back in 1983 after completed a Bachelor of Business majoring in marketing. Despite initially training in residential real estate, Peter found the non-residential markets more his style and quickly made his mark selling and leasing industrial and commercial property throughout the city fringe and South Sydney areas.
By 1987 at the ripe age of 25, Peter had sold numerous buildings ranging in value to $5.5 million and leased new industrial premises up to 11,000 m2. Three years later Peter teamed up with a co-worker Nick Spasevski to start Taylor Nicholas, specialising in those days almost entirely in industrial properties in the South Sydney, Inner West and North Shore Industrial markets.
Such was his experience in the South Sydney market, Taylor Nicholas was appointed joint agent for the marketing of what was then a new concept in retailing, the bulk retail outlet, the Retail SupaCenta at Moore Park, Sydney. Peter subsequently introduced and successfully negotiated leases with both ‘major’ tenants to the complex, Freedom Furniture and Harvey Norman as well as a host of smaller retailers, many of whom remain in the centre today.
Since 1990, Peter has personally acted for scores of national and international companies, government departments, property trusts and funds and well known companies such as ANZ Bank, Burns Philp, Energy Australia, Goodman, DB RReef, IGT Australia, MMI Workers Compensation, Toyota, the NSW Department of Commerce, State Rail Authority, Roads and Traffic Authority.
His most recent notable sale was the sale of a parcel of state owned land for $52.75 million plus the ‘on-sale’ of an 18,000 m2 portion of this for $22.0 million for the site’s new owner.
