From simple studios to multimillion-dollar homes, real estate provider Belle Property is committed to offering a premium outcome for its customers no matter what their price point is. The business services the areas of Sydney, Brisbane, and Adelaide, and is also set on entering additional markets in Melbourne and Perth in the near future.
Australasia CEO Peter Hanscomb has been leading Belle Property for the past eight years. He studied commerce at the Queensland University of Technology before he landed a job with a chartered accounting firm. After a short while, he moved into real estate, starting with Ray White in 1982 as a management accountant. Over the next eight years, he was promoted to financial director and then to deputy managing director at the age of just 26. He then began coaching 22 out of the top 25 Ray White offices in Australia, as well as 20 other real estate offices from different groups.
"I also ran a small development company specialising in subdivisions and apartment building. Then in 1996, I went to America and brought back a concept called RE/MAX, which was the largest real estate group in the US at the time. I introduced their business model, which was new to Australia, and over the next eight years grew the RE/MAX group to 126 franchises and about 1,400 employees nationally."
