Oregon Licensed Principal Broker / Owner
Growing up in Lake Oswego, Peter graduated Lake Oswego High School in 1968. Peter attended Oregon State University graduating with double degrees in Political Science & Business Administration in 1973. Hired as an accountant by Crown Zellerbach for their Timber & Wood Products Division in Molalla, Peter quickly climbed the corporate ladder eventually being promoted to their Corporate Headquarters in San Francisco. A growing interest in the local Real Estate market quickly became a passion and within 2 years of landing in San Francisco Peter joined forces with another Crown associate and formed the Real Estate Brokerage of Holly, Raynal & Clark (HRC) that eventually had offices in San Francisco & Atlanta. HRC specialized in Residential Real Estate and the restoration, management and sale of “Historic” Income Properties (Multi-family).
It was in San Francisco where Peter met the love of his life, Laurie. Laurie was raised in St. Paul, Minnesota but was living in Los Angeles when they met. After a whirlwind courtship, they were married in 1978 and the rest, as they say, is history.
Peter & Laurie were blessed with son Alex in 1984. And blessed again in 1986 with the arrival of Katie. California no longer seemed the right place to raise a family so in December of 1988, Peter, Laurie, Alex & Katie packed their bags and moved back to the Portland area settling in West Linn.
Peter immediately joined forces with Signature Homes as the Sales & Marketing partner and began building homes. Signature Homes built Executive level homes in Lake Oswego & West Linn. Peter joined the Hasson Company Realtors that same Spring (’89) and remained a top 10 producer in the Lake Oswego office until he became an investor in helping establish the Keller Williams Realty - Portland Premiere Market Center in January 2004.
Keller Williams in now the largest Real Estate Brokerage in North American and Portland Premiere Market Center is it’s area’s top producing Brokerage. KWPP’s core area encompasses Lake Oswego, West Linn, Wilsonville, Sherwood, Tigard, Tualatin & SW Portland.
