John Peters possessed an exceptional understanding of both our industry and the unique aspects of the job position, enabling him to conduct a focused and intelligent search for the highest caliber candidates. His knowledge extends beyond merely a ‘search’ process, as John is able to provide useful and insightful dialogue regarding the differentiation of skills and qualities among multiple prospective candidates. John Peters conducts an intelligent, efficient, and responsive search process that matched our business needs with the optimal candidate.

Peters & Associates is extremely professional, focused and proactively involved in the search. Their insight to both the markets and candidates is most valuable. The search was successful on all counts.

Executive VP, Asia Pacific Land, Tokyo, Japan

Peters & Associates is the only firm I have worked with that truly understands the real estate investment business and John Peters devoted his time to really understand our Company. That advantage is critical in insuring you not only find great candidates but that you hire the right ones and insure a good fit within your organization. I can not recommend John and his team highly enough.

Working with John and his team was a pleasure. They continually came up with new and creative ideas for sourcing candidates and then effectively brought candidates to the table.

Dana Norris
Managing Director, Global People Strategy and Leadership Development, Tishman Speyer

In my experience, they bring a great deal of thoughtful individual attention to the search process, spending the time to know both your needs as a client and the perspectives of the key candidates. This makes them the kind of firm that is a pleasure to have on your side, particularly when the going gets tough.

What distinguishes John Peters and his firm from others with whom we have worked is his outstanding ability to understand our business, our industry and our place therein. And it was not just the breadth and depth of his knowledge, but the very worthwhile advice we received that made our experience so satisfying. This is not just another search firm; it’s a true consultancy where one receives real value that transcends ‘headhunting’.

Peters & Associates, Inc. is a no nonsense firm that knows its business. They understand our industry and the people in it. That enables them to truly comprehend a job specification and be able to deliver the caliber of candidate we’re looking for.

John Peters brings his vision of where the institutional/commercial real estate industry is going versus where it has come from or where it is at this moment. His ability to understand his clients needs and convert that to identifying suitable candidates goes well beyond the usual and customary recruiting process. In consulting with his clients at the outset of any assignment John’s listening and deductive skills help him establish and grow his role as a trusted advisor.
