Peter Lees Real Estate has a team of dedicated people in Real Estate Sales, all working together to become the best Real Estate office in Launceston, Tasmania. The principles of this office are aligned with those of the Jenman Approved Group and the Pittard Training Group. These principles are promoting Ethics in Real Estate. Our sales team takes this responsibility very seriously.

We aim to change the way property is bought, sold and managed, and this is why…

Our Founder Peter Lees,  spent many years sitting on an international real estate board “discussing” ways to improve real estate practices that were never fully actioned. After attending a workshop in 1999 run by a real estate guru called Neil Jenman, Peter was prompted to think:

· Why do real estate agents charge sellers such exorbitant amounts for advertising?

· Why do agents commit sellers to auctions when most in the industry would never do an auction for their own mother?

· Why conduct open homes when we know that we can get much better results by actually talking to buyers?

· Why? Why? Why?

The workshop was challenging and confronting. It was diametrically opposed to nearly all standard industry training at the time. It was truly a lightening-bolt moment! The practices they had been taught previously were for the benefit of agents, not consumers. After the workshop, the Peter Lees team were retrained and the huge job of changing the way real estate is bought, sold and managed, right here in Launceston, had begun.

Real Estate does not need to be traumatic or costly. Director Terry Robinson’s belief is that if we use our real estate skills to help a family in our community, our reward is not only financial but also personally satisfying.  He believes in putting the clients needs ahead of our own interests and that’s why they keep coming back!

Terry’s real estate experience is extensive. He joined the team in 1990, when it was operating as Tabe & Lees, progressing to Sales Manager in 2003, Part-Owner and Director in 2011, and Sole Owner in 2015.
