Get To Know Peter Hutton

I heard someone say, “Old road, old dogs, old folks, and old ways still have a lot to offer in this sped-up world we live in.” I kind of relate being in my 60th year. Funny thing is though, I’m fitter now with way more energy than when I started in real estate in 1994 in my early thirties and I’m as tech-savvy as any 20-year-old, haha.

Yes, a lot has changed since those days of doing deals and signing paper contracts across the bonnet of my old 240GL Volvo. 1,000 or so property sales later, I’ve seen many agents come and go, many things have changed but there’s one constant that hasn’t when it comes to selling real estate and that’s market knowledge, marketing expertise, selling expertise and personal service. These things still count the most if you want to maximise your sales price.

So . . . here are 5 maybe not-so-known facts about me and why I love selling real estate!

 #1   — When you’re selling your home, you’d hope your agent knows how to sell, and better still lives and breathes selling virtually 24/7. If there was one thing I can claim, it would be I’ve been in sales most of my life. When I was 7 years old, I got an idea in my head to sell one-metre-square parcels of land on the vacant block next door to other kids in the street. That summer “selling land” I made enough money to buy a couple of extra Ekka Sample Bags. And that’s when I got hooked on selling.

#2   — You name it I’ve sold it. Wool, pigs, cars, insurance, furniture, bagels, art and of course property, lots and lots of property. I started selling land as a kid and fell in love with the psychology of selling and property. I’ve been very fortunate to have sold the best of the best and the worst of the worst. It doesn’t matter to me I just love selling property.

#3   — My career highlight so far was selling the penthouse apartment at 130 Sydney St, New Farm for $5,750,000. It was a stunning architectural apartment with no river views making it the highest price for a non-riverfront apartment in Brisbane at the time. That record still stands I believe.

#4   — I love selling owner-occupier apartments. There’s something extremely satisfying to me when both the seller and the buyer get what they want due to my ability to negotiate. Karen and I live in a roof top apartment which we adore. Most agents prefer selling houses, I’m not sure why. Maybe it’s because selling houses is easier for them as there’s no body corporate to navigate with a house sale?? Or maybe it’s because they think houses are more prestigious. I don’t know. All I know is I love selling beautiful apartments. That’s my thing.

#5   — When I’m not selling, I’m either at home gardening, I have lots of pots or BBQing on my Weber smoker (Wagyu rump cap ‘picanha’ style roast is my specialty), or I’m at the beach with Karen and Vincent (our Cocker Spaniel) or I’m out and about walking for fun and exercise. Oh and coffee, I love coffee, you might find me at Piccolo By Her in Fortitude Valley in the morning most days.

I’m so glad you’re here reading a little bit about me. What I’m hoping is, by sharing my love for selling real estate, especially apartments – which I hope I’ll never need to retire from doing (could I go through to my mid-seventies? I reckon I will), you’ll get me to sell your property or at least use me for a second opinion. Either way, my boutique agency approach will give you a way to make your property stand out and sell for more.

Sold Under Hammer, 22 Abbott St, New Farm

Peter is the best marketer in New Farm and a master negotiator. I wouldn't sell with anyone else. My family was beyond thrilled with the result. Job well done Peter.

Davis Family, New Farm

Bought and Sold Through Peter

We met Pete a few years ago when he sold us our new apartment at Banc on Coronation Dve. We were impressed with what a "people person" he was, but also very knowledgeable. When it came time to sell our much-loved town home, we called on Peter again. With his great advice in how to prepare for sale, and perfect execution of the personalised marketing plan, we sold for a record price in the complex.

Peter and his team are fantastic to deal with from A to Z. They were professional and hard-working and they made sure that they didn’t waste my time which I really appreciate it. I have no issues in recommending them very highly at what they do.

Peter Sells 42 Villiers St, New Farm For a Second Time in 10 Years!

A pleasant experience. Peter is the utmost professional and is very experienced and knowledgeable. He is attentive to market factors and attune to what prospective buyers tell him both in what they say and how they behave. He is great at negotiation. He is adept at teasing out positions and "reading the tea leaves". I would have no hesitation in using him again because above all else he has integrity.

Peter is an Agent with Integrity!!

Peter and Karen have now sold 4 properties for my wife and I and right from the start we were very impressed with their professionalism and marketing knowledge. Peter's negotiating skills together with Karen's sense of style and presentation produced very satisfactory price levels on each occasion. We worked with them through each level of the sales process and could not have been happier with each outcome.

John & Margot Wedderburn, New Farm

Bought and Sold in New Farm!

We first met Peter when we were checking out Zahra on Oxlade drive. We decided to purchase the Zahra apartment Peter showed us and then we had to sell our current unit in New Farm. We decided to use Hutton & Hutton. Peter did a great job in marketing and selling our unit during the first week on the market. We were extremely happy with the price for the property which went unconditional in 21 days. The service was second to none.

Perfect Fit for the Sale of Ashgrove Home!

I interviewed other agents and thought Peter Hutton would be the agent to suit my needs. After listing and successfully selling my house my instincts were confirmed - he was the perfect fit. Peter worked for me, taking into account my needs and the approach I wanted when selling my home. He knew that selling can be emotional, yet simultaneously marketed my home to get the right buyer for the right price. I loved his book and I definitely got ‘The Love Price’.

$75,000 above appraisal

Peter (and his team at Hutton & Hutton) were fantastic and highly professional agents in helping me prepare and sell my unit in Cutters Landing, New Farm. Peter and his team were hard working and prompt in answering queries, organising pre-sale “things to do” and communicating interest from potential buyers which resulted in offers, and a sale in a short period of time and at a price I was most happy with. Thoroughly recommend Peter as an agent to sell your property in the New Farm area.
