Long-term friends Gary Peer and Phillip Kingston shared a vision - to create a locally focused, locally based real estate agency in the part of the world they loved.
They banded together in 1986 and they fused their passion to create one of the most admired real estate agencies in Australia.
They focused on using their comprehensive knowledge of the area they grew up in to provide a personalised and valuable service with a distinctive local touch that would ensure they stood out from the rest of the real estate crowd - and it worked.
Word spread, and the business grew. Handpicking the best sales and support staff helped, et voila! Gary Peer grew to be more than just a local real estate icon - the firm is now one of Melbourne’s leading independent real estate businesses, breaking records and helping people with their real estate goals across most of the inner south and south-eastern suburbs.
Gary and Phillip are still the captains of the ship today – leading and inspiring their team to constantly achieve the outstanding results for their clients time and time again. Those clients trust Gary Peer to deliver a truly exceptional real estate experience every time.

Teams, not individuals win trophies.
Gary Peer & Associates only begun entering awards in 2013 when we were bestowed with the highest honour in the industry - winning Large Residential Agency of the Year. We also picked up the award for Corporate Promotion (Multiple Offices), Innovation and Communication in the same year. Since then, we have consistently excelled at the REIV Awards with twelve trophies we are immensely proud of.
We believe we have the best people in real estate, and it’s wonderful to be recognised for that too. At the 2015 REIV Awards, five of our team were recognised for their individual achievements in the industry. These include three Best Residential Salesperson of the Year Awards, Best Corporate Support and the Achievement Award.
Although we are grateful for the many awards our agency has won, the highlight is those awarded to our team. The greatest reward is still appreciation from our clients on a job well done, however, it’s also really wonderful to be recognised by our industry and peers.
