Peter Yopp


There’s no such thing as a typical day for Peter, and this is exactly why he loves what he does. With more than 16 years’ experience in the real estate industry, it’s Peter’s passion for the Byron Shire, his drive to exceed client’s expectations and willingness to embrace the unpredictable, that sets him above and beyond the competition.

A quick look over Peter’s client reviews will reveal a host of five-star ratings and adjectives like ‘pro-active’, ‘professional’, ‘knowledgeable’ and ‘reliable’. For someone who found himself in the industry almost by mistake, it’s clear Peter has found something he is not only passionate about but is also very good at.

Peter has lived in the region almost his entire life and is invested in seeing the Byron Shire exceed. Specialising in the residential market, he loves to show off the very best the region has to offer, whether that’s to locals or those new to the area.

From everyday homes to high-end prestigious abodes, the privilege of being able to showcase properties from this part of the world and the faith placed in him by both buyers and sellers is something that Peter is truly grateful for. His drive to go beyond the expected for his clients shines through in both Peter’s work and the testimonials from his client base.

As much as he is passionate about real estate, Peter is also a proud family man and when he’s not at work he’s usually spending quality time with his two kids Harper and Lauden and his fiancé Renaee. Having just built their own home in Bangalow, you can rest assured when you are working with Peter, you are partnering with a proud local.

Peter’s also been involved in the Byron Bay SLSC for 30 years and while his competitive days are behind him, he still finds solace in the Bay and loves to paddle his surf ski two or three days a week if he can.

Peter is a great communicator, open and honest, above and beyond, and a genuine professional. With the COVID-19 threat, it was an uncertain time to put the house on the market, we had to consider all options for a successful result. Peters' feedback pre-sale, instructions and direction was invaluable. Not only did he provide constant updates, we felt he gave good information and communicated really well with us as we had to ensure that the sale and purchase transactions ran seamlessly. Most importantly he was helpful as we did not feel rushed. We have bought and sold with Peter before, so we feel qualified with our recommendation. Overall, we were incredible happy with Peter and would definitely recommend his services.

Grahame & Kay Rodgers

Happy seller! Our experience selling our house with Peter was made easy and less stressful then i expected due to his local knowledge and experience, Peter always showed extreme professionalism in both his appearance and manner. We are very happy Peter was representing us in our sale.

Rebecca - Suffolk Park

Peter’s first visit to evaluate our property was a refreshing change. No glossy plastic folders of agent background and sales histories to end up in the bin. No pressure. Peter came recommended by a friend as an honest agent with integrity and a thorough knowledge of the area. We developed an easy working relationship with Peter very quickly and he worked closely with us providing good feedback after inspections and discussing how best to move the sale forward. Peter worked hard to achieve a pleasing result for all concerned. Vendor happy, buyer happy, agent happy. You really can’t ask for any more.

Chris Best

Keeping it simple, real, logical and fair is the reason why Peter has been appointed the sole agent on all of our real estate sales over the last decade or so. I have also been involved with property transactions as the purchaser with Pete as the acting agent. This allowed me to witness the true professionalism that Peter provides to “both” parties, a unique quality in this industry. All negotiations/transactions have been uncomplicated and fuss free, so important at times when making the right decision is imperative. Being a long term local Pete’s knowledge of the region and the people that live here is outstanding. This knowledge and understanding only adds to Pete’s superior level of customer service & advice provided. We continue to return business to Pete as sole agent I suggest this alone speaks for itself.

Dean & Renae

It took us about 12 months to find the ideal property for our needs (we were after an entry-level house in sought after Baywood Chase), Suffolk Park. Throughout this time, Peter proactively helped us to research various house options within the area - which was invaluable in deciding on the final house. Peter was excellent to deal with from the beginning to the end - professional, diligent and with exceptional communication. The inspection and settlement process was fantastic. Peter went beyond the call of duty to ensure the house was clean, really well presented and fully functional on settlement. I would get Peter involved in a flash if we were to buy another place &/or sell our home. He's a total pleasure to work with. Genuinely much appreciated - thanks Peter.

Ange & Ivan

Peter Yopp from LJ Hooker Byron Bay was referred to me by a friend who had grown up in Byron Bay and knew Peter. From our initial contact with Peter, it was clear that he valued the relationships he formed with his clients. My wife and I found him to be honest, reliable and to possess the utmost integrity during and after the sale of our home in Suffolk Park. The relationship with Peter has continued post sale and Peter has also assisted us with securing a rental premises. It is obvious to us that Peter has close community connections within Byron Bay and he values his good reputation. I would not hesitate to recommend Peter Yopp from LJ Hooker Byron Bay.
