Peter Stray

Since commencing in the Real Estate industry in 1983, I have helped hundreds of clients buy and sell their homes and now enjoy considerable referral business from past clients.
To increase my knowledge of the legal and technical areas of real estate and provide a more
professional service to my clients I have continued with formal real estate education and in 1992
I completed all of the examinations required to be recognised as an Associate Member of the Real
Estate Institute of New Zealand (AREINZ).
Selling a home requires more than just putting up a sign in your front garden and an advert in the
paper. The choice of an agent with a proven track record in marketing and negotiation can make a significant difference to the result you are endeavouring to obtain and to avoid unnecessary stress and anxiety.
Over my real estate career I have been a consistent high performer and Harcourts Top Agent in South Canterbury for the past 2 years as well as being placed in the top 5% of Harcourts agents in New Zealand.
Having been involved in Marketing and Selling a wide range of property from sections to some of this region’s most expensive homes. I know the Timaru market well! I also have a specialised knowledge in developing and marketing new subdivisions and am widely acknowledged as the most experienced agent in this aspect of real estate in this region.
A “Just do it” attitude and a competitive nature has seen me compete in numerous mountain bike, Coast to Coast and other sporting events as well as pursuing my other outdoor interests including tramping and sea kayaking.
My perseverance to follow a challenge through to the finish whether it is business or recreational can be seen in the completion of a 5 week gruelling mountain bike ride, the length of the South Island in 2008 along the Eastern Ranges of the Southern Alps to raising funds for a charity.
I was born in Timaru, grew up here and I have enjoyed raising my children here. I firmly believe we are lucky to live in such a great part of New Zealand and welcome the opportunity to give you my experience and enthusiasm so that together we can achieve your desired result whether buying or selling.
