The Ray White Kohimarama / St Heliers offices were under the ownership of Ray White foundation member Peter Best since the early 90s. Over that time the businesses built up an incredibly loyal following and considered market leaders in the Auckland eastern bays. In 2018, after 27 years of ownership Peter passed over his residential sales offices in Kohimarama and St Heliers to Wayne Maguire, franchise owner of the neighbouring Mission Bay office.
The property management and rentals division of the business remains with Peter trading as Ray White Best Property Management and is now located in high profile stand alone premises in the heart of the St Heliers Bay village.
Over the term of his ownership, Peter has used his strong background in customer service and leadership to provide customers and team with his local expertise and knowledge . Peter has acted with integrity and honesty and has always aligned with the strong family values of Ray White. He is highly personable and recognizes that real estate is about people, and values keeping in touch with everyone.
Peter entered real estate in 1987 with Beltons United Real Estate (the forerunner of Ray White in NZ) and hasn’t looked back since. He enjoys spending time with his four grandchildren, traveling and gardening.
Peter works closely with his Manager, Tamara Willis and their team of experienced property managers serving their loyal client base. Peter’s real estate compliance knowledge is also called upon by Ray White and industry colleagues..
