About Peter Clay, Associate Broker
 
Peter is originally from New Jersey, about 15 miles as the crow flies, from Manhattan.  He grew up there and in Annapolis, Maryland, and was fortunate to have spent most summers of his youth in Vermont and New Hampshire. He attended colleges in the north and in the south, and then had a 30+ year career with an international retailer, including at the New York City headquarters as VP Human Resources and VP Operations/Productivity.

Subsequent to retirement, Peter operated a successful business consulting company, and invested in ski and waterfront properties in the northeast.

His wife, a now-retired banking executive, is a winter sports and golf enthusiast, while Pete enjoyed high-performance power-boating and golf, both activities slotting nicely in with their property decisions. About 18 years ago, desiring a longer boating and golfing season they decided to relocate their primary residence from New Hope, Pennsylvania, just across the Delaware River from New Jersey, to the Lake Lanier area in  Georgia where they built a home in a gated golf community in Suwanee, Forsyth County. They retained a ski home in the northeast and properties at lake Winnipesaukee in New Hampshire.

Among Peter's many executive responsibilities had included  employee/executive relocation and property development, so becoming licensed as a real estate agent in Georgia in 2004 and as an associate broker in 2006, was a natural progression.  Pete has had an exceptional record of achievement, including recently being the Company-Wide #1 Individual Agent , Closed Sales Volume. In addition, he has amassed a number of designations, gained through both continuing education and by achieving stellar results.


He is most proud of being named a Harry Norman Senior Marketing Consultant, or "SMC". This designation is a result of an outstanding closed sales record, and high standards of customer/client satisfaction. According to Harry Norman REALTORS stats, SMCs are truly the best of the best when it comes to sales professionals:

72% of listings, 77% of closed volume, 70% of closed units

In addition, SMCs achieve almost 4.5 times the volume of an average productive sales associate, close more than 3 times the units of an average productive sales associate and closed sales an average of almost 39% higher sales price than the average productive sales associate.


Other earned designations include ARS (Accredited Relocation Specialist), SFR, LRS (Listing Relocation Specialist), (Short Sale & Foreclosure Resource), GRI, (Graduate, REALTOR Institute, SRES, (Seniors in Real Estate Specialist) and Christie's International Luxury Specialist. 

Today, Peter hones in on certain market areas in which he has special interest and exceptional results, namely equine, farm/land, luxury residential and  commercial properties.  He will compete for a limited number of listings and buyer searches, but does not handle leases of any kind.

To best serve his clients, Peter Clay belongs to 4 Associations/Boards of REALTORS and 5 Multiple Listing Services (MLS). This costly commitment provides Pete's clients with exceptional exposure when listing, and, as Buyers, access to properties and listings most agents cannot show without outside assistance. Please feel free to contact him anytime for an objective discussion of your real estate matters.

Relaxation for Peter includes reading history, architectural drawing, sports, improving his gardens and visiting Savannah, Charleston, Kiawah Island & Hilton Head, among other easy-to-reach areas of the southeast. He and his wife now reside in a newly built home on the other side of Lake Lanier from where they built originally and the Corvettes, performance boating and skiing are in the rear-view mirror now, but are wonderful memories.
Peter's wife still skis, loves cold weather!
