Peter in 3 Words: Business savvy, committed and knowledgeable

Peter’s Role 

With in excess of 16 years industry experience on Phillip Island and having owned properties in the community for over 30 years, Peter Buitenhuis combines extensive real estate knowledge, a deep passion for the area, and an honest, focussed approach to consistently deliver maximum success.

Peter's trusted reputation, wealth of experience and savvy business acumen positions him perfectly for his current role of Associate Director, where he is committed to ensuring the team remains the local market leader and the Phillip Island Specialists. Peter will continue to offer behind the scenes support as a consultant advising on all matters relating to the real estate industry.

What He Brings 

Peter, a fully licensed estate agent, possesses unrivalled knowledge of the local market, enabling him to assist and support all types of transactions. His enthusiasm for the local lifestyle, and all that the island offers, also rubs off when talking to potential buyers in the area. Peter’s dedication and success has been recognised many times having been awarded the ‘Number 1 Salesperson Award’ for the Gippsland Zone in December 2015, the ‘Number 1 Salesperson’ Award in February 2015 and the ‘Gold Sales Achievement Award’ at the Annual Awards in December 2015. Peter was abducted into the Stockdale & Leggo Ian Stockdale Hall of Fame in 2017.

Peter has a passion for sailing and has been very involved in Newhaven Yacht Squadron for the past 20 years and was Commodore from 2014 to 2017 inclusive. Peter is also musically gifted and plays not one but three instruments, the trumpet, trombone and piano. He is known by many for his band ‘Island Jazz’, where he leads the groups in vocals and on the trumpet. Peter is particularly fond of the trumpet which he has been playing for 50 years, having studied with the famous trumpet player Merv Simpson who was the 1st Trumpet in the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra and Melbourne Trumpet Trio.
