Peter started Real Estate in 1986 in the South Waikato managing 130 rental properties along with being involved in sales which included housing, commercial, industrial and farms. He gained his Auctioneer's Licence in 1989 and relocated to Tauranga in March 1992 where he joined Tozer Real Estate, working in the Cherrywood office specialising in the Western Suburbs where he made many sales based on his ability to negotiate with patience and tenacity.
While working for Tozer Real Estate he called many successful auctions until Tozer Real Estate sold in March 2014. Peter now works for Eves Realty - still in the Cherrywood office, selling and listing throughout Tauranga.
Peter has been involved in Recreational Fishing Rights since 2000 and is currently Vice President of the New Zealand Sports Fishing Council and Director of the Sports Fishing Council's public outreach initiative 'LegaSea'. Peter was on the committee of the Tauranga Sports Fishing Club from 1995 where he organised and compered the fishing contests until 2000. In 1999 he started a three year tenure as president.
After surviving a brain tumour in 2002 driving a car was not allowed for two years so he took up cycling. This soon became a passion and he competed in the Lake Taupo Cycle Challenge for the first time in 2004 and has since completed the challenge ten times. He also competes in the Tauranga half ironman in January as the cyclist in a team of three.
We were delighted with the way both Mary & Peter handled our sale. It only goes to show the professionalism that they both had as shown by the success at auction.

Thank you so much Peter for the excellent pre-sale and after-sale service you have provided me as a purchaser of my new home. I will definitely call on your help if I ever decide to sell my home (hopefully not for a long while!). I would sincerely recommend you and Mary to others wanting to sell or buy their home.
Thank you so much for all the extras you both did for us with the sale of the Matua unit. We have really appreciated everything.
Stephanie & Ray Putt
We chose Mary and Peter because we have seen their success in real estate over many years. On their advice we put our house on Auction with some trepidation. The guidance given during the process was excellent and within 5 days of commencement we received a pre-auction offer. It was very tempting as it was within our expectations. Due to the number of previous inspections Mary and Peter recommended we reject the offer which is what we did. Two weeks later Peter was back with another offer and on their advice it was accepted and the auction was held two days later to allow other interested parties the opportunity to purchase also. The auction commenced at the pre-auction offer price and to our surprise the bidding was robust.
John & Heather Ninness
Thank you for your help finding and securing us a property in this hot market. Both yourself and Peter have been a pleasure to deal with and we really enjoyed the experience of purchasing a property through you.
We found you were both easy to talk to, proactive and not pushy.
Sarah Turnbull and Paul Koopal
Wow !!!!!what a result Over the moon thank you so much for all your hard work.
You and Peter have been wonderful in your understanding and communication.
Mary O'Sullivan and Peter Campbell managed the sale of my home under considerable pressure with efficiency and expertise.
They provided regular communication and updates and clear information with every step. A potentially complex process was made much easier, giving me the ability to decide between options with confidence.
The final result is extremely satisfactory.
It is more than ten years since Mary handled the sale of our first home in Matua.
Over the years since Mary and Peter have acted for us in a number of property transactions and have always been friendly, efficient, and obliging. We would not hesitate to recommend their services.
Keith & Joan Burrows
We have dealt with Peter and Mary on more than one occasion. We have found them genuine, honest, professional and above all trustworthy. We enjoyed the fact that they "didn't blow their own trumpets". They got results for us.
Ray & Stephanie
Selling my father's house was always going to be a bumpy journey on all sorts of levels. Mary was positive, extremely helpful and professional throughout what ended up being a smooth, positive experience. Thank you to her and the team at Eves.
I recently listed my property with Mary and Peter.
I am at present living in Sydney which meant I was totally reliant on good communication by email, fax and telephone with the real estate agents who also communicated with people working on my behalf to make the property presentable.
I accepted an offer after the property only being on the market for several weeks and again found Mary and Peter most helpful with what I needed to do to finalize the sale.
I thank them for the very good service they provided and would recommend them to anyone wanting to list a property for sale.
We purchased a property recently and Peter Campbell was the real estate agent from Eves in Cherrywood.
Peter managed the sale with a very professional, honest and relaxed manner.
We would recommend Peter without hesitation to any future purchasers or buyers.
Christine and David
I wish to express my thanks for the consideration shown by Mary on the open day viewings (where she had the help of Peter Campbell). On these days Mary stayed beyond the advertised times to ensure the large numbers of viewers were able to view the property.
Regarding individual appointments I always received phone calls regarding convenient times to view and I appreciated this immensely.
Weekly meetings were schedule to fit in with my son's working hours to discuss the week's viewers and the follow up.
I truly appreciated Mary's presale advice for the successful auctioning of my home.
As the daughter of the vendor I arrived prior to the property being advertised, and Mary came to the house to answer our questions and explain fully the process of auctioning the home.
On my return to Australia, Mary emailed the weekly vendor reports of the progress and this was much appreciated. Having marketed several homes in NZ and Australia I was most impressed with Mary's professionalism and consideration to my mother at this time.
As the son of the vendor, I was really impressed by the way Mary kept the family informed at all times, either via email or the phone.
Her integrity and accommodating, considerate and pleasant manner as she worked tirelessly to market the house, was impressive. Her campaign was a very well thought out and presented one.
I found Mary a pleasure to deal with at all times.
I have been really impressed with the amount of communication we have had, friendly and supportive, and of course the wonderful outcome.
With grateful thanks to you both.
