About us

PETER F. BURNS is a name synonymous with the South Australian Real Estate Industry for over 50 years. Since opening our first office in Darlington in 1962 we have assisted thousands of people with their Real Estate needs and selling many millions of dollars worth of property. As times and people’s needs changed so did we. However nothing has changed our dedication to personal, professional service. Our philosophy has always been to provide the best, most informative personal service available. Guaranteed!

We have evolved as both an innovative and proactive member of the Real Estate Industry. The changes within the Industry over the years have been great, although not always for the better. We have embraced many of these changes and strongly rejected those we did not believe in. The Company has always remained very proudly South Australian family owned and fiercely independent. Our Sales team are all fully trained and backed up by an excellent Property Manager, a strong, dedicated support staff and the best technology information and data systems available.

There are many options that should always be explored when considering putting a property on the market. We believe that under no circumstances should you limit the marketing options for your home. While some properties are not suited to Auction and should not be marketed that way, be assured it is a powerful option that should never be overlooked especially for some properties. With the strength of the current market many properties are being sold without any open inspections, a proposition that is certainly not new, (we have used it for years, on the right property). And now, with our unique 24-hour virtual open inspection technology it is even easier, but you should never limit the options available to you by saying, “under no circumstances will we have open inspections”. You should ensure your agent is willing to work with other reputable agents who may have a buyer for your property thereby extending your exposure. Knowing all of your options and being able to keep them open is important. You are, after all making decisions about the sale of what is probably your greatest asset.

A true, experienced local agent will know your market and the best way to go to that market, the best way to present and sell your property for the highest possible price. In any case you must always be fully informed as to current market conditions and all of the options available to you. What may work interstate, as history has so often shown, does not necessarily work in Adelaide.

The best guarantee you can have is to seek advice from people with unequaled local experience, people who have achieved excellent long-term results, people who have real systems and support structures that have been created and refined over decades, people who can instantly source the highest quality information and relevant data, people who are prepared to take the time to sit down with you and genuinely explain ALL of the options available to you, people who receive the highest percentage of repeat clients. In short, real people that have stood the test of time.

We live and work in your community and we know your area with experience gained from the local Real Estate market. As to guarantees, we as a long time member of your community offer unequalled local experience and results and will happily provide a written genuine personal guarantee.
