The Peer Review


Quarter one of 2024 in four words? Hit the ground running.

Across our offices, the first three months of this year saw booming business, fun-filled festivities and lots of laughter. There was a real focus on finding different ways to gather our Gary Peer community to celebrate our professional and personal wins – together.

And with this issue of The Peer Review, we’re doing it again.

It all starts with our cover feature: the inspiring people – and story – behind Flying Fox. An organisation that’s ‘serious about fun’, Flying Fox has been bridging the gap between people with disability and the community for 10 years now. So we sat down with them to hear all about it.

Inside, we also:

  • Reveal the hottest spots in Malvern and Malvern East for your next day (or night!) out
  • Show you how to make the signature style of your period home shine 
  • Share the inside scoop on our annual Kickstart Day – and exactly what it was that fuelled our team through our smashing first quarter
  • Keep you abreast of the latest market updates – thanks to our Sales, Property Management and New Projects teams

So, what are you waiting for? Scroll down to read The Peer Review. You know you want to.

Celebrating a decade of fun, respect and integrity: Flying Fox turns 10!

If, on 25 February 2024, you stumbled upon a rabbit hole and fell into an explosion of colour, chances are you were at Flying Fox’s 10th birthday celebration. A truly whimsical high tea with over 800 guests, the event marked a decade of connecting people with disability with the wider community. We caught up with Flying Fox team members Timnah Kieser and Carly Glasser to hear all about their celebration, the highs and lows of the past decade – and their hopes and dreams for the future of Flying Fox.

A star-studded lineup: The Gary Peer Kickstart Day 2024

The beginning of each year brings with it many things. Excitement. Hope. A clean slate. And, for the Gary Peer team, a trip to Albert Park’s Carousel. The Gary Peer Kickstart Day has been an annual staple for longer than Co-founder and Director, Phillip Kingston, can remember. But its purpose remains front of mind: to bring everyone together for a day of eating, learning and being inspired. And the 2024 instalment lived up to this promise in every way. In fact, Phillip says it was the best yet. We sat down with him to find out why.

The perfect blend of new and old: Embracing the elegant Edwardian

Nestled in Melbourne’s inner-city suburbs, amidst vibrant streets and modern developments, lie these hidden gems of architectural history: Edwardian and period homes. Loved by buyers for their timeless charm, these elegant residences – when restored well – offer the perfect blend of classic and modern. But how do we strike the balance? We spoke to interior designer Romy Dankner, Founder of Homeroom Studio in Caulfield South, about how to honour a period home’s historical appeal while updating it for modern living.

Belarus, banking and the Bombers: Meet Bentleigh’s Leon Gouzenfiter

When you were a child, what did you want to be when you grew up? An astronaut? Archaeologist? Racing car driver? Well, perched by the window of his 11th-floor apartment in central Minsk, a young Leon Gouzenfiter would spend his time orchestrating imaginary flights. He hoped to become a pilot. Fast forward to today, Leon has traded the pilot’s seat for the Director’s chair in Gary Peer’s bustling Bentleigh office. Life, it seems, has unfolded very differently from what he once dreamed. But as we settle in for a chat over a coffee, it’s clear to see that – in this case – ‘different’ is even better.

From the lush parks and gardens to the thriving café and bar scene, join us as we unveil the best places to savour, unwind and connect.
