Even when attending Hillside Secondary School in West Vancouver, Tim knew he wanted to be a real estate agent. He would go to open houses with his mother long before he was a licensed realtor simply because he loved to look at houses. He loved meeting people and he loved houses.
And now twenty six years later, Tim is still the one the youngest realtors to be licensed in British Columbia days after his nineteenth birthday. His love for people, houses and his community has only become stronger and more committed.
Tim in all his life’s pursuits is uncompromising. He is tenacious in his approach to business and represents his clients, many of them repeat clients, with dog- like loyalty.
Since the age of twenty, Tim has been appointed to many of West Vancouver’s Community Boards, helping over the last twelve years shape his community, for the benefit of seniors, the disabled and other groups. His positions as a commissioner has allowed him to advise on many aspects of his community, most notably the parks and recreation commission, the advisory planning commission, the community services commission, the youth advisory commission and most recently the Library Foundation Board.
Simply stated, no other realtor knows West Vancouver like Tim Slater. Put Tim’s energy and experience to use. He is a master negotiator, a wealth of knowledge and two and a half decades later, still loves people and houses. After all... isn’t that what it is all about?
His friends call him ‘an Ambassador to the world'. Peter has incredible networking skills. Through letters, emails, personal contact, Peter manages to stay in touch with people from all over the world. Whether it is with his Grade 2 classmates from University Hill Elementary School, or his UBC friends or his BCIT or University of Maryland friends, or all the people he has befriended in over the 30 countries he has traveled or worked, Peter is a networker. And still to this day, nothing has changed.
Peter‘s pursuits revolve around his job as a dedicated, honest, intelligent Vancouver realtor now into his 14th year. Born in Vancouver some 52 years ago he knows Vancouver’s Lower Mainland extremely well, especially the Westside, specifically the University Endowment Lands having grown up and lived there most of his life. Along with his business partner Tim Slater he continues to be a top producing Vancouver realtor.
Peter is an avid sportsman with a huge love for tennis, boating, biking and walking with dogs. Outside of work and sports Peter volunteers his time to Out of The Cold, now into his 9th year as a dishwasher every Wednesday night through the winter months. For 5 years up until 2008 he was a board member for the Vancouver Aquarium where he helped raise over $1,000,000. He also co-chaired his high school’s 75th Anniversary Celebration in September 2003 which helped raise over $27,000 which in turn established the University Hill's Alumni Bursary given out each year to a deserving graduate. Currently Peter chairs the Hollyburn Country Club Tennis Committee.
Before his life as a real estate agent, Peter spent 15 years working for the Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts and then with Pan Pacific Hotels and Resorts, both here and in Japan, Vanuatu, Australia and New Zealand. Peter’s attention to detail is evident in his exacting standards of service. The same can be said about his service as a real estate agent.
