Peter in 3 words: Innovative, Focused, Welcoming

Peter’s Role

Peter is Stockdale & Leggo’s owner and Chairman. Peter leads the corporate office and oversees all business operations in conjunction with his management team.

What He Brings

Peter brings a rich history to the business, first joining Stockdale & Leggo as an agent in 1978, before becoming its first franchisee in 1981. Peter purchased the business in 1986 and proceeded to pioneer the real estate franchise model, establishing offices through Victoria, Queensland and New South Wales, and has grown the business to 46 franchises and more than 1000 staff.

Peter understands the importance of creating a trusted family-focused brand, adopting a hands-on role by acting as a mentor to all staff, drawing on years of experience in the industry to assist with goal setting and career and business advice.

“I pride myself on being accessible to all of my staff. My driving force is to look after our franchisees and our staff to enable their success. Seeing young people join the business and helping them to become successful in their career is my passion.”

Under Peter’s leadership, the group has been recognised in industry and business awards, winning the 2017 International Business Awards’ Gold Stevie and People’s Choice Award in the real estate category, and as a finalist in both the 2017 REIV Innovation Award and 2017 REB Innovator of the Year Award.

Away from the office, Peter enjoys spending time with his wife and his seven children, and supporting AFL team Carlton.
