|What our clients say:|
A few months ago, my wife and I decided to make some major changes to our life. One of the biggest obstacles to get over was the sale of our home. We were scared and expecting this process to be extremely difficult to deal with.
My wife and I really can't believe how easy Peter Lees Real Estate has made this process. Your company had managed to find a buyer in less than a week with a sale price higher than we expected - we found that unbelievable.!
Also, the constant updates kept us very well informed and that made us feel at ease, knowing exactly what was going on.
We will always share this experience with family and friends reassuring them that they would be in very safe hands when trusting in Peter Lees Real Estate.
Thank you so much for your professionalism and we wish your company all the success for the future.
This is to confirm that Peter Lees Real Estate have exclusively handled the sale of 25 properties for me over the past 10 years. During that time I have found them to be conscientious, competent, totally honest and above all, successful, in achieving a sale at the best price. I have no hesitation in recommending their services as real estate agents to anyone looking for a competent agent.
To the Team at Peter Lees Real Estate,
Relocating has been very exhausting. We found a suitable house very quickly, so we have been moving again.
Thank you for your excellent service and your thoughtful Tasmanian book. We love it!
Vic & Anne England
I've owned 16 investment properties in NSW, QLD, TAS, SA, WA and New Zealand. I can confidently say that Peter Lees Launceston is the best property manager I've had by a country mile.
I've found that service almost always comes down to the individual rather than the policies in place by the business. If the individual leaves, their service leaves with them. But I've dealt with a number of managers from Peter Lees over the last 7 years and regardless of who is handling my property, your service has always been consistently excellent.
i would buy another property in Launceston simply to have you guys manage it. It makes that much of a difference to cash flow and security.
Our association with Peter Lees Real Estate has been over 15 years. As Franchise Principal, Aussie is very selective with its association with business partners and making sure they are as customer centric as us. Therefore, our relationship with Peter Lees Real Estate is based on the strong synergy that exists and grows between both the clients and our office.
With our Panel of Lenders that are available, we are able to assist clients with various financial backgrounds etc find the best option for them. Our assocation with the Peter Lees office has, from time to time, enabled us to assist those in the lower social economic demographic as well as assisting those on the other end of the scale with providing appropriate finance to meet their financial requirements.
During the past 15 years or so, our association has experienced a number of both property and economic cycles and at all times, Peter Lees Real Estate has demonstrated sound management and the ability to respond professionally with its customer being the primary focus.
I have no hesitation in stating my opinion that Peter Lees Real Estate represent market leaders with long term experience and their ability to adapt to a changing landscape.
We have utilised the Rental Department to manage our property since purchasing it a number of years ago. Our experience with Peter Lees Rental Managers over the years has been excellent. The quality of tenants recommended; the prompt payment of our accounts; the attention to any maintenance required; the abilities of the maintenance crew (such as Andrew Foley); the communication with us on any issues; have all been to the highest level - Thank you.
Gavin & Katherine Campbell
I have recently transferred to Peter Lees Real Estate. I believed I received "a poor deal and poor value for money" elsewhere at another agency. I was immediately made to feel welcome at Peter Lees Real Estate and my questions and concerns were promptly and professionaly answered. I am looking forward to starting afresh with Peter Lees real Estate where my investment property is property and professionally managed and not left to deteriorate and decay with nasty and disappointing surprises! I believe in a fiar deal for both parties concerned (Landlord and Tenant).
Thank you to Peter Lees Real Estate for considering me as a client during a time of stress, upset and worry.
The agent she chose for us was always honest with us in every meeting. He made regular contact and always rang with feedback from any interest on our house. As my husband and I both work full time, he went out of his way to make meeting times to suit both of us, even if it were 7pm at night, or over the weekend.
Entrusting [Peter Lees Real Estate] with the sale of our house has been one of the best decisions we have ver made. After a short period, the agent had found that perfect person to purchase our house and we are now on track to building our new home. It has been a weight off our shoulders. We would highly recommend Peter Lees Real Estate to any potential seller.
Ben & Kelly Scott
Vicki was very confident from the get go that she could sell my property quickly and at the top of the market. So congratulations Vicki, keep up the good work!
In the good old day’s Kelvin would be described as a thorough gentleman. He has restored my faith in the younger generation, how wonderful if all had his qualities. He was constantly grilled by myself in all his dealings regardless, his demeanour never changed, always well mannered, pleasant helpful and most of all he explained no matter how long it took until I was happy with the outcome.
I just hope in the future this young man is appreciated and rewarded for his work ethic and the high regard he has for his employer (Peter Lees). Well done Kelvin, may the future bring you health, wealth & happiness.
This is our fourth transaction we have done with Vicki, 2 purchases and 2 sales. We recommend her constantly to friends who are considering selling.
We have bought and sold many properties and could not be happier with the outstanding service we receive from Vicki, she keeps us informed at all times, even if it means calling around well after hours, 8 or 9 pm which many other agents don’t ! Nothing is a hassle for her. We find her to be absolutely honest and extremely hardworking. She is a pleasure to have working for us as customers. We will defiantly continue to use Vicki as our agent for any further transactions.
T & B Graham
Tim & I would like to say thank you to the Peter Lees staff for the lovely Owen Hughes book on Tasmania we received, we 'love it', its sits very nice on our coffee table in the lounge room. We have already shown it to some of our Perth (WA) friends.
T & K Clark
Patrick was good to us, helping in many ways and talking to us like a friend. If I ever need to use a Real Estate again I would use him for sure. Thanks for all your help & our new house.
B Slater & B Love
Shayne & I would not hesitate to deal with Terry or Peter Lees Real Estate in the future. There is no substitute for experience. Terry’s many years in the industry as well as his upfront manner and ability to clearly explain where we were at, with our property made our “sale” experience very controlled. We felt Terry had his finger on the pulse every step of the way.
Thank you Terry
J & S Keep
I found Vicki to be very friendly and willing to help in any way possible to get my house sold. Nothing seemed to be a problem so thank you Vicki and the team at Peter Lees Real Estate.
Some years ago when viewing a house offered For Sale by Peter Lees Real Estate I was impressed by Jonathan Jessup’s manner & integrity.
This year (2010) we engaged Jonathan to sell our rental property and he secured a buyer quickly and at a price we wanted. The experience was painless and without fuss, Well done!
Jonathan Jessup acts promptly, doing what he says he will do while keeping you informed in the process. Jonathan understands customer service for both seller and buyer. We would recommend him to others.
D & K McIntee
Patrick’s presentation to us as vendors was very professional and delivered in a bright positive manner. His personal approach reflects a person with an honest, friendly caring nature who enjoys his position.
We believe Peter Lees Real Estate are indeed fortunate to have a person of Patrick’s ability and character as parts of its team.
Thank you Patrick, and good luck in your future.
M & K Grice
Terry could not have been more helpful in providing access to properties on the market. He listened to any/our needs and expertly helped us sift through the market to identify properties suitable for us.
I am emailing to express my sincere appreciation for the enthusiasm and compassion for your staff Amelia and Karen.
Amelia went above and beyond to assist me to find a rental property- with gratitude I am now moving to a unit in
On completion of signing the papers I met Karen, she made me feel very comfortable and explained everything attention to detail.
Please accept my sincere gratitude for the superior and professional service from your staff in your company.
I have the great pleasure of dealing with the Bendigo Jenman office, as they currently look after my rental properties and have sold my properties in the past.
It is good to know that the Jenman experience is alive and well in the Apple state.
I write to you to commend one of your managers for outstanding performance. A rather difficult tenancy problem was escalated to Karen Mudge, who I must say used a great deal of common sense and intelligence to sort out this issue. She was very pleasant to deal with as well as being helpful and extremely knowledgeable. The way that Karen explained to me that she understood the problem and yet at the same time informed me that it would still cost some money to resolve, was a work of art. She left me feeling that she will do everything she can to assist, and therefore I was prepared to accept whatever the penalty ends up being knowing that she and Arlene would have done their best.
I would also like to commend Arlene, who I did not deal with personally, but played a part in sorting out this issue and escalated to Karen for assistance. Finally, if you could also pass on my thanks and appreciation to Alex your receptionist, who was outstanding with her assistance.......who went far and beyond the normal call of duty when I requested help from her.
Finally, I hope that you received my delivery of a mixed dozen bottles of wine, and I would appreciate it if you would see to it that Karen, Arlene and Alex all receive some of the wine and that the balance is passed out to the other hard-working staff in the Property Management area as this is one of the tougher jobs to do, and often thankless.
Well done on being the Principle of such a professional organisation.
Kay and I can highly recommend Jonathan Jessup to any vendor. In fact we waited for him to return from an extended holiday to sell our latest property bringing it to five sales for our family in the last three years.
We were impressed by the way he kept us informed at all stages of the process. Each sale has been handed promptly and professionally. Clearly he is the best in the business. We will certainly call on him when we sell our investment property in the future.
J & K Baker
As a landlord living in a different State it is important for us to have Property Management that we can rely on and trust. Over the past 10 years we have been fortunate to have the service of Peter Lees Real Estate to provide us with quality tenants for all our Tasmanian properties. Peter Lees and their wonderful staff have the contacts and tradespeople required on call for any problems that arise.
It is a great pleasure to recommend the services of Peter Lees Real Estate and its staff for all our Property Management requirements.
Michael & Gabriele Nicholls
We have enlisted our rental property with
The strength of their inter-office communication is clearly highly efficient as we often speak to different people who always seem briefed on any previous requests or communication we have had with other staff members. The staff’s friendly demeanour makes them a pleasure to deal with always!
We look forward to dealing with
Tim & Kate Clark
We found the staff at Peter Lees Launceston to be nothing but helpful. As we were moving from NSW it wasn't possible for us to view the property prior to leasing it. Peter Lees Real Estate was by far the most organised and helpful real estate agency we dealt with. We were kept in contact with over the application period - not once did we have to call. All responses were prompt. Everyone we spoke to was really friendly. We will definitely recommend Peter Lees Real Estate to anyone looking to rent in Tasmania.
Just a note of thanks for the real estate information you have been sending us, it is always of interest and in due course we hope to buy further property through Peter Lees Real Estate - and while we are writing to you, may we again thank all concerned for the superlative service you always give us in looking after our initial and small investment.
In particular we would like to express our sincere appreciation for the tireless assistance that Ms Helen Ryan renders. There have been too many instances to mention specifically. Her help, advice and happy personality would be most welcome to a Launceston investor, but bearing in mind our distance from Tasmania (we presently live in W.A.) it sure makes all the difference to us.
With best wishes to all,
Ardan and Wendy McGuinness
I’d recently had positive dealings with Vicki when assisting a family member with a property matter so when Vicki advised me of a property that might be of interest I was quick to investigate.
Thank You, Polly
I selected Peter Lees to list my home based on their marketing technique and the rapport I quickly developed with Vicki. Their technique appealed to me as I wanted to avoid the use of open homes and potentially excessive advertising costs. Through her knowledge of local buyers Vicki was able to focus her efforts on genuine buyers rather than having hordes of people shown through my home.
Thank You, Margot
We have sold and brought a few properties but this as our first time dealing with Peter Lees Real Estate, and how lucky were we!. Yep that's right we were fortunate enough that Vicki was sent out to us. Vicki is the most professional, enthusiastic person. She is an absolute gem and a credit to the Peter Lees team and we can't thank her enough.
Mel and Chris Cherry
My partner and I were extremely happy with the service given to us from Peter Lees Real Estate, we were not harassed nor did we feel pressured to make a decision, hurried, unlike other real estates, we were given the space to look at properties in our own time and any problems/queries we had were attended to straight away and with ease.
Overall, we were very pleased and we will not only use Peter Lees Real Estate again but we will recommend you to our friends and family.
I am truly grateful for the quick sale of my house. Vicki worked hard to achieve an adequate price in the uncertain economic climate and I am more than pleased with the outcome. I recommend Peter Lees Real Estate to any buyer or seller.
Very many thanks to you for the beautiful hamper of goodies.
With the purchase of our new home, Peter Lees Real Estate were very friendly and professsional with all dealings and correspondance. It was a pleasure to do business with them.
P.S Kim and I enjoyed your basket of goodies.
Regards, Mitch and Kim
I was happy with the service received during the 12 months through Peter Lees Real Estate. Everyone was friendly, professional and helpful.
Should Peter Lees open an office in Hobart I would gladly use your services again.
I had a bad experience with a previous tenant but Peter Lees quickly found a responsible new tenant to look after my investment.
A complete investment property management package that allows me to focus on my other business interests, knowing my property is in capable hands.
Peter Lees quickly returned my call to arrange a meeting to discuss managing my property and they gave me great advice about ways I could finish the property to achieve a maximum weekly return for my investment property.
An empty rental property is bad for my cash flow and Peter Lees successfully found a suitable tenant within 1 week.
Thanks, Josh Noble
In a very difficult market, I could not have asked for more!!
Jonathon is an excellent communicator who provides regular updates when there are things happening. Jonathons honesty in market conditions and the saleability of your home really help in understanding your own expectations.
I could not thank him enough for his enthusiasm and other personal attributes that help you know you are in very capable hands.
Jonathon comes with my highest recommendations if you are looking to sell a house. A massive thank you.
Regards, Mathew Kenna
When the time comes, whether it is to purchase another property/or lease I will remain as a Peter Lees client.
The great shame of the 3 years through which we rented from Peter Lees was that we rarely had a reason to visit the office and see the lovely staff.
The service was Always professional, friendly and reliable.
Karen was very courteous and helpful at our inspection and all questions answered at the time suggesting excellent knowledge of business.
We have been dealing with Peter Lees Real Estate for the past 3 years and found all the staff friendly and helpful whenever we made contact. More recently we had our house in Waverley sold by Peter Lees and in particular got to meet and deal with Jonathon Jessup, who sold our house within the price range needed and in the time we gave.
We found Jonathon to be a good natured, quiet spoken young man who was attentive, helpful and made himself available to us on short notice. He let us make our own decisions without any pressure,ever, and always presented himself professionally, yet friendly and enthusiastic.
Thanks, R. Kirsopp
Jonathon Jessup of Peter Lees Real Estate recently listed our 5 units and sold them for our asking price within 3 working days. We found Jonathon to be highly motivated, easy to communicate with and always returned our phone calls.
The Peter Lees Real Estate sales philosophy was explained to us in detail and the realistic asking price and first offer made to us was the outcome we were happy with. We would highly recommend Jonathon Jessup.
David & Maria Payne
I have been in touch with Jonathon for about a year, while I have been renovating my house. Upon completion of this work he came up to give me a quote on the selling price. I at that time had found a house to buy with Peter Lees Real Estate and Jonathon helped me buy this property without any stress. He then listed my property for sale and within a week has sold it for $5000 more than what I would have accepted.
If you were thinking of buying or selling a property I would definitely recommend Jonathon to give you some help. Jonathon also sold my property without a signboard.
Just wanted to say a big thank you to Jonathon and all the crew at Peter Lees.
The market is a bit tough at the moment, I wanted to sell and with advice from the experts I did!!! Honestly I could not recommend a better real estate agent.
If you want sold, speak to Jonathon!
Dear Jonathon, we would both like to thank you for the sale of our house. We were very impressed by your sales skills and how quickly you secured a contract.
Many thanks, Michael & Joanne Cotton
Jonathon Jessup has always been friendly and efficient in all our dealings. He has been in regualr contact for the past 5 years and was therefore the natural choice when I decided to sell my home.
He showed a very good understanding of the local market and nothing was too much trouble for him.
I was also impressed by the teamwork at Peter Lees Real Estate, in particular those who worked with Jonathon to achieve an excellent result.
Jonathon displayed honesty integrity and professionalism in all aspects and I have no hesitation in recommending him to any prospective client.
The staff at Peter Lees have all been very helpful and are to be commended for their honest and friendly approach in assisting us through the whole process of settling into a new rental residence.
Peter Lees was great – very professional, courteous and friendly. They made my move down from far north Queensland very easy. I had a place to live within 2 days.
Great Service – we had a faulty hot water system issue which was attended to promptly. We also had a unforeseen issue housing our cat “Gimli” which was accommodated for without fuss.
Also, the ‘welcome basket’ was well appreciated, Thanks!
We were allowed to occupy the premises sight unseen due to our unique circumstances (moving interstate) which to us was a real stress reliever!
P & L. Heaton
"I have been associated with Peter Lees Real Estate for many, many years as a home purchaser and residential property investor. I have no hesitation in recommending Peter Lees Real Estate to anybody seeking the highest professional and ethical standards associated with purchasing, selling, or building and managing a property investment portfolio."
Your service was so good that I cant think of any ways that you could improve it – Well done! I was given a cappuccino while I signed the contract and a hamper of goodies for my new rented home. Thank you Helen for being so warm and meeting every request promptly and without question.
We are really happy with your prompt response to our application. Also we requested for the lawn to be mown and it was attended to within a day. Thank you.
Helen made our shift from Queensland a lot less difficult than it may have otherwise been. After spending many frantic weeks trying to arrange a suitable rental, Helen and Peter Lees Real Estate sorted everything out for us. The service provided put other agents to shame. Thank you so very much.
After a very frustrating morning visiting various other real estate agents and being treated with indifference at best it was a nice suprise to walk into your office to be pleasantly met and helped straight away. During the whole process of leasing the property the staff where all excellent and are a credit to your business, if I need to lease or buy a property in the future Peter Lees Real Estate will be my first choice of agent. Thank you to all the staff.
I was very impressed with friendly service at Peter Lees. Within the week they had helped me find and approve a rental property. They even let me use their trailer for free! and provided me a hamper of start up essentials.
Peter Lees Real Estate was a friendly introduction to great service in Launceston (as I am from Hobart). No other real estate people up here have dealt with me in such a friendly and professional manner.
To the Asset Management Team:
A brilliant group of people, dedicated to assisting us in such a speedy manner, Thank You. Our new rental home is lovely and the efforts on your part made the move so simple. Thank you again.
Jennifer Donnelly & Stephen Kennett
While searching for a new property to rent I dealt with a few well known real estate agents in Launceston. I was the most impressed with Peter Lees Real Estate, other real estate agents could learn a thing or two from you. I am still waiting for one real estate to ring me back.
You kept in touch with me every couple of days to let me know what was going on, even when there was nothing to report.
I should give you a present for all your help and assistance, by the way I loved my present.
We found Peter Lees staff to be very efficient and helpful. Their rental contracts are comprehensive and appear to protect both the renter and the property owner very well.
John E. Parker
Peter Lees Real Estate has managed my rental property for a number of years now, and they have always found the best of tenants. The staff are so friendly and approachable and it gives me peace of mind knowing that I can trust them to continue to manage my investment property. I am very happy to leave it in their very capable hands.
It's not everyday you happily remain with the one business for over a decade. Peter Lees Property Management team has been managing my investment properties with professionalism since my introduction to the investment market all those years ago.
I can certainly recommend their approachable and efficient service to anyone requiring a great team who will work with you.
Lee and I are first time property investors. After walking in from the street, my initial experience with Peter Lees Real Estate from the receptionist through to the sales person and property management team was easily the best, friendliest and most honest of several such encounters with agents during a short visit to Launceston.
I was well looked after, given coffee and made to feel comfortable. The office staff were hospitable and most importantly accessible after normal business hours 7 days a week.
Since completing our purchase we have found your after sales treatment is excellent, as is the service given by your property management team.
We are kept well informed about every aspect of our property and feel comfortable it is in good hands. Just as important, we know you look after our tenant as professionally as you do ourselves.
We look forward to continuation of such a mutually beneficial arrangement.
Brian and Lea Beattie
We have had our property managed by your organization for a number of years and we recently sold it. I wish to thank a number of people – through you – that we have dealt with during that time. Regarding the rental management, the following staff have provided exceptional service: Gail Oliver and Renee Maynard. They were always helpful, always efficient and demonstrated superior organizational, communication and customer service skills.
For us owning a property at a distance, these staff made our task as landlords possible. Please thank them for us. Terry and Jonathon were both very helpful when it came to selling the property. Again, both were committed to keeping us informed every step of the way – Jonathon when we first considered selling the property last year and Terry with the actual sale this year.
I would not hesitate to recommend your organization to others.
P & A. Milliken
I cannot find or hope to find any other agent who can give me half the satisfaction as I get from the rental department there. I have other properties here in Melbourne which are brand new and I have had to sack both agents because of mismanagement, lack of professionalism and inability to simply communicate. Problems I have never had with the team there at Peter Lees.
I having nothing but praise for them. Keep up the good work!
Thank you all, Ned Tibble
Just a short note to say thank you and to congratulate you for employing some refreshingly professional staff.
From our initial phone call, it was comforting to know that someone on the other end of the line was 'smiling'. Her tone and approach to us indicated professionalism and sincerity.
We had dealt with quite a few real estate companies in Launceston and were getting sick and frustrated by their approach to people looking to rent properties. Being treated like second class citizens, being told to wait and we'll get back to you when we're ready or can be bothered.
Your team whoever we dealt with treated us equally and more importantly professionally. I acknowledge you and the business philosophies that you and your team endeavour to follow.
As rental people I could not recommend you enough to anyone. People who wish to be treated with dignity and respect by agents who genuinely look after their clients.
Clients being both investors and renters - an understanding of the importance of both parties an their individual requirements and indeed the synergistic relationship they have, many agents appear to have forgotten that one does have an intrinsic effect on the other.
We look forward to dealing with you for many years to come. Whether it be renting, home buying and/or property investment or management.
Yours Faithfully, William Nicholls
We have had several dealings with Real Estate companies in Launceston and we are sick and frustrated by their approach to people looking to rent properties. Being treated like second class citizens, being told to wait and we'll get back to you, "when we can be bothered".
The staff at Peter Lees demonstrated a great understanding of our needs and dealt with them in a most professional manner. Whoever we dealt with at Peter Lees treated us equally and more importantly professionally. I acknowledge the business philosophies that you and your team endeavour to follow.
I could not recommend the rental department highly enough. People who wish to be treated with dignity and respect by agents who genuinely look after their clients. Investors and tenants alike.
Mr & Mrs Nichols
