Licensee Salesperson, Ray White Newmarket
If there’s one word that most accurately describes Peter Akeroyd it’s ‘tenacious’.
Starting out in the motor industry at the tender age of 17. Peter diligently worked his way through the ranks, eventually owning a dealership and serving a two-year stint as the National President of the New Zealand Motor Vehicle Dealers Institute inc.
Throughout that time he was also nurturing his passion for real estate, accumulating a significant portfolio of both residential and commercial properties, and learning a lot along the way!
After formalising his interest in property by becoming a licensed real estate agent, Peter quickly set about evolving his skills, systematically learning the ropes just as he’d done all those years ago in the motor trade.
Although the industries may seem vastly different, the skills he’d accumulated then served him well. As Peter says, “it really comes down to being able to find the perfect solution for each individual you deal with.”
“With a car that could be anything from a small, cost-effective ‘run-about’ to a large, family-sized wagon, while in property it might be a home with potential for a young couple, a more manageable space for an older buyer, or a solid rental for a seasoned investor. Sure, the investment might be a lot bigger, but fundamentally it’s still about understanding your clients’ goals, and then exploring every avenue in a bid to achieve them.”
Finding the right fit for each individual often boils down to communication, and Peter prides himself on being honest, forthright and a great listener. He’s dedicated and driven, generous with his time, and incredibly easy to get along with.

Peter Akeroyd was involved in the selling of our home at 14A Matai Road Greenlane this year. Peter did an excellent job of showing our home and the feedback and advice we received from Peter was excellent. Peter is a very easy person to talk to and a very geniune person. He explained the whole process involved and Peter had a no pressure approach to signing up with him to sell our home. It was a pleasure dealing with someone so professional and si'ncere. I found Peter to be very honest and forthcoming and I would recommend him to anyone wishing to sell their home
A heartfelt Thank You for all of your hard work and involvement in the purchase of our family home. We are beyond excited and felt very lucky to be involved with such a nice, genuine person in our biggest financial decision ever! You really took the effort to get to know the people you were dealing with which seems to be a real rarity now.

Peter Akeroyd acted as our selling Agent during the recent selling of our property. His diligence, attention to detail, efforts in putting the Auction together, and getting the sale over the line surpassed our expectations. He kept us appraised of all the aspects of the lead up to the Auction in a professional manner, following through the transfer to the new owner. I would reservedly recommend Mr. Akeroyd.
Peter Akeroyd has sold both our house in Auckland and our section in Dunedin for us and we would be more than happy to recommend Peter. From the start of the process, he has made everything clear, straight forward and provided us with good advice. Peter made us feel as if nothing was ever too much trouble and he was always available to talk to. We would not hesitate to recommend Peter.

Thanks for the extra effort you have given to the sale of our house. Thank You for your professionalism and friendship.
I have just successfully sold my home in Herne Bay. Peter Akeroyd was my listing Agent and he also handled the Open House, marketing Plan and the subsequent auction of my property. I can honestly say that i would recommend Peter to anyone who would like to contact a Real Estate person who is honest, easy to deal with and totally professional in what he does. Thank you again, Peter for all your hard work.
We are writing to acknowledge the excellent job done by Peter Akeroyd in promoting, marketing and selling our commercial flat complex. Peter's initial presentation and no pressure approach gave us the confidence that he would promote and get the result we wanted for the sale of our property. We were very impressed with the sensitivity he showed towards the 4 sets of tenants during the open home process to gain their cooperation. Each week we were emailed a written and verbal report of the activity generated during the open homes and from the web advertising. We were able to gauge the level of activity and were informed of the registered bidders that indicated they would be attending the Auction. Auction day was a success and although it was wet, Peter had such a rapport with the tenants that we were able to hold the auction in the garage area inside one of that flats. The whole experience with Peter was a very professional and pleasurable one. And the final auction price was in excess of our expectations. We would have no hesitation in recommending Peter to our friends and business acquaintances to market their properties and look forward to working with him in the future.
Peter Akeroyd has been involved in the marketing of our property. The property was taken to auction and sold the next day. During the campaign, we were very pleased with the feedback and advice we received. I have known Peter for many years and can vouch for his integrity and diligence. We would have no reservation in recommending Peter to anyone seeking a successful Real Estate result, and wish him well in his chosen career.
Peter Akeroyd, was in charge of selling my house. With a successful sale also getting a good price for my property, I'm a very satisfied customer of Peter's. Peter was always cheerful with a smile and happy disposition. He was very patient with me that I held out for the price I was happy with. My elderly parents who lived with me very much liked Peter. Peter was considerate and looked after Mum and Dad while lots of people were coming through to look at the house.
Just a short note to thank you for helping us sell our property. When you first approched us, I found you "Non Pushy" as I have experienced with some Sales people. You were very good with giving us sound advice on how to prepare the property for sale. When the time came you laid out a plan and gave us confidence in the sales procedure, which of course led to a successful Auction. I would not hesitate for a moment in recommending you to friends and family. Again - thanks Peter!
My name is Tony Gan. I come from Kunming in China. I have been living in West City for two years and I work in Birkenhead, North Shore City. Because of the long travel and high expenses of fuel, I decided to move to the North Shore. I checked out several houses on the internet, Later I went to Harcourts Birkenhead. Agent Mr. Peter Akeroyd met me. We talked about what i wanted in his office he then took me in his own car to show me all the houses I listed. I wasn't satisfied with the houses i chose, Peter was very patient and recommended more houses that might of been more suitable for me. We took almost two hours to look at about 10 houses. Fortunately there was one i was interested in. Later, I took my Wife and my dog to visit the house. Peter Akeroyd explained all the details of the house to me and my Wife. The following day I made an offer and Peter did a good job for us. We just took a few turns of negotiation. The Vendor accepted the price offer. We were very happy with the process he made. As a happy purchaser, I highly recommend you Agent Mr. Peter Akeroyd. He is a very friendly and experienced Agent. If you are considering buying or selling your old property in North Shore, I am sure Peter could help you to reach your best expectations.
We have known Peter Akeroyd as our Real Estate Agent when buying our first house. With his help, the purchase process went smoothly and successfully. During the purchasing process, Peter has been friendly and helpful. He provided us with excellent professional service and real estate marketing knowledge. He gave us useful advice before the auction and tips for a bidding price. We would like to highly recommend Peter as your Real Estate Agent for any Real Estate Trading.

We engaged Peter to handle the sale of our investment property in Coronation Rd, Hillcrest. When it didn't sell, after a period of 3 months on the market, we instructed Peter to take down the signs as we had to place new tenants in the property for a further period. Earlier this year, Peter suggested to us that the property would sell if we were prepared to go to auction. He described to us in detail the procedure, costs involved and the time frame. We agreed, and he put the plan into action - a three and a half week promotion with open homes each Saturday and Sunday, and the auction to take place on the final Sunday. Throughout the promotion period, Peter kept us fully informed of progress with both written reports and telephone updates on a regular basis. He also introduced us to the Auctioneer, who briefed us on the format of the auction. By auction day, Peter had secured two firm bidders, and although the weather was particularly nasty, the auction was conducted successfully, and we were delighted with the result. We were also impressed with the team work demonstrated by Peter's colleagues which contributed to the success on auction day. We have no hesitation in recommending Peter's services, and will certainly be making use of his experience and expertise when we sell our next property.
