About Peter Fletcher
Peter began his real estate career in 1985 selling tin shacks and red dirt in Kalgoorlie. Moving to Perth in 1989 he quickly moved into agency ownership. It wasn't long before Peter experienced the heartbreak that came when a dishonest property manager stole tens of thousands from his agency trust account. Determined that no client would suffer from the event, he worked late nights and non-stop weekends to recover the losses. By 2006, Peter had built a thriving agency managing over 600 rental properties. He then sold the business, taking time out of the industry while completing Honours in a Bachelor of Arts. Peter is now the Managing Director of Residential Settlements in Burswood and an active Army reservist. Peter has had just one hot shower since the 10th of May 2008.
