Start Here ... with Peter

North Vancouver is my home, my neighbourhood … my turf … and I know it well. In fact, I’m a lifelong area resident. I’ve always loved the skiing, golfing, hiking, or simply the overall ambience that emanates from such a wonderful blending of mountain and ocean. It’s my world - and the primary location of my Real Estate business.

I’ve been a full time Realtor since 1989 – a 25 plus year time frame that has served as a valued platform for observing area trends and the impact of varying economic climates on real estate values. I’ve experienced family dynamics while on the move (up-sizing and down-sizing), dealt with the all of the issues surrounding our ever growing city and pursued continuing education to better develop and refine my approach to advising you in the buying and selling of residential real-estate.

However, while the degree of experience and education are important considerations in the Realtor evaluation process, I feel that a solid reputation trumps all. This doesn’t occur overnight, of course, and in the past 25+ years I have dedicated myself to consistency in my approach using strong business ethics and a commitment to excellence as guiding principles. The upshot is … Yes … I now enjoy a positive, friendly, and trusted reputation not only with clients but with a wide network of real estate colleagues and industry related professionals.

Start Here is my brand concept – a call to action intended to encourage you to retain me as your Realtor - from the get-go – thus enabling me to help you navigate your way through the demands and requirements of your real estate transaction successfully – start to finish. In a nutshell: whether you are selling or buying, I am confident that you will find success through my reputation for dependability, personal attention and exceptional service.

"Peter is highly personable, knowledgeable and a joy to work with. Highly respected by his colleagues, Peter ensures you are well represented and he achieves the best results regardless of whether you are buying or selling. I have no hesitation in highly recommending Peter to everyone." ~ VICTORIA JACKSON


My Backup Team

Every real estate transaction has a myriad of details and I’m fortunate to have a strong supporting team. Andrea Doby, my assistant (and wife!), is also a fully licensed Realtor who keeps a keen eye on important behind-the-scenes details and energetically reinforces our commitment to superb customer service. Macdonald Realty, my brokerage, has been a trusted name in real estate since 1944, and a firm that has always been a reassuring presence for me over the past 25 years. My team also includes a wide array of specialists and experts including Mortgage Brokers, Lawyers, Home Inspectors, Insurance Brokers and Appraisers. I will be happy to provide their contact information as needed.
