Robert Peterson provides real estate advice to the LGBTQ+ community with passion, exclusivity, and competence



Robert Peterson is sensitive to the unique needs of LGBTQ+ people as a member of the community. He serves as a trusted and confidential advisor, who has long advocated for human rights. In addition to working with locals, he enjoys connecting the growing number of LGBTQ+ newcomers to Victoria with the resources and opportunities in our diverse community.

Robert’s experience as a lawyer for over a decade prepared him well as real estate advisor who listens carefully to his clients, is a strong negotiator, and demonstrates a keen eye for detail. Robert joined Engel & Völkers because of its commitment to a high level of professionalism and provision of exceptional service to clients. He believes this is essential to properly advising and negotiating the best outcomes for his clients. As a lawyer Robert served as national chair of the Canadian Bar Association’s Sexual Orientation and Gender Identity Conference.

Robert employs the latest technologies and, through Engel & Völkers, has access to an extensive international network of exclusive listings and potential buyers. He is proud to work with agents of the highest calibre, who continually strive to represent Engel & Völkers’ distinguished brand.

Engel & Völkers’ style of doing business originates from its early success as a luxury European property agency. Robert maintains the same standards of quality and service in everything he does and at every price point.

Robert believes that the Engel & Völkers brand has natural appeal to the LGBTQ+ community, which is bolstered by the fact that Engel & Völkers is a proud North American sponsor of the National Association of Gay & Lesbian Real Estate Professionals.
