Peter Kuhne

Post President

I have served on the REEFWA Committee for many years, including 4 years as your President. I have seen this service as my opportunity to give back to a profession that has been very good to me. I enjoyed representing you in front of the fair work commission during my time as President and feel the knowledge I gained during this period is of use to you.

I started my real estate life as a commission-only salesman and, therefore, had a particular interest in the debate that raged during this time. I encourage business owners to serve on our committee if they can do so. You will find the experience invaluable as there is no resource in your business other than your staff, and the legal framework of which you employ them is a vital part of your business. Therefore, participation in this process is of great importance to us all.

Gordon Davies

Committee Member

Gordon began selling real estate in the Western Suburbs in 1965 and has been in real estate for 61 years and been on the REEFWA Committee for over 30 years.

He is passionate about the Western Suburbs for the following reasons: –

  • Convenience to so many facilities e.g. river, ocean, city, UWA, major hospitals, the biggest selection of major public and private primary and secondary schools, many yacht clubs, kings park, tennis clubs and other sporting clubs.
  • Mostly it is very much garden suburbs with plenty of trees and parks and ovals.
  • Is between river and ocean with moderating breezes off both which along with the trees have a moderating influence on the climate.

Over his 60 plus years selling he has come to the conclusion that the biggest single reason people live in the area is for the education of their children. Most parents care passionately about their children and work very hard to make sure they receive a good education.

Julie Baker

Committee Member

“I have been in real estate since 1997, amassing knowledge in real estate from the ground up. During this time, I have worked in residential sales and property management, but my area of specialty and passion is management of the company and team.

With the ever changing laws that governments apply to our businesses, I feel it is important that we champion our industry bodies that support us to keep abreast and implement these changes. Being a committee member of REEFWA I am looking forward to helping our industry to adhere to the best professional standards.”
