Our founder, James Thomas Peet, established the company in 1895 with the belief that owning property and having a home of your own was every Australian’s birthright. The ‘energetic Englishman’ became one of Western Australia’s most successful and respected real estate people, and the name Peet & Co. became synonymous for ‘reasonable prices and fair dealing’.
Since that time, Peet has survived and thrived – through wars, changes in ownership, listing on the ASX and national expansion – James Peet’s legacy has lived on through the generations. Underpinning our continued growth and success are the very same qualities that were evident more than a century ago – vision; strong leadership; courage and integrity; and a passion for property. It’s a powerful heritage that sets us apart.
