MEET THE TEAM behind Real Estate Australia

We wouldn’t be one of Canberra’s best Real Estate Agencies if it wasn’t for our close-knit team. Whilst many of the larger agencies experience high turnover of staff, we’ve stuck together over the last 10 years.

Peter Tolhurst

Founder, Principal and Residential Sales Agent

With over 25 years of experience selling Real Estate in Canberra, it comes as no surprise that Peter is passionate for property.¬†When it comes to life outside the office, he’s driven by his love for travel and a penchant for motorcycling.

Jane Cottam-Manning

Office Manager and Senior Property Manager

After enjoying careers across Agriculture, Hospitality and Retail, Jane finally found her calling in Property Management. Using her passion for people to build strong client relationships for all things property, it’s no surprise that homeowners rave about their experience.

Mike Tolhurst

Business Development and Marketing Specialist

Having explored his first computer at age 3, it should be no surprise that Mike is a keen technology enthusiast.
