About Pete

Whether it’s your home, your business, your business property, or even if you are looking for the right lessee, Pete Coldwell is focussed on finding the right buyers for his clients for the very best results. Matching customers with the right property, business or lease, it is all about the right outcome.

Pete sells residential property as well as commercial property and businesses, he can take care of all your real estate needs, rather than having a number of agents help you. The skills that Pete has honed selling commercial real estate, have encouraged him to add residential sales to his business. When business clients repeatedly asked him to sell their houses, it was the obvious choice.

Energy, absolute attention to detail, constant open communication, right to the very end of the process, means that Pete gets the very best result for his vendors.

He has a broad background and a strong network of local business people, with an intimate understanding of the complexities of different sized businesses and the strength of Bayleys marketing, Pete is in a unique position to help broker the right business deals. He’s now looking to increase that business broking side to match the right businesses with buyers.

In his 11 years in Marlborough, Pete has been in senior positions in the wine industry, both as General Manager of Seresin Estate and then lately as the Managing Director of Highfield TerraVin. Throughout this time, he has built a considerable business network in the region.

Prior to coming to New Zealand, the rest of his career was spent in the management of hospitality businesses and in consulting, giving him exposure to a multitude of small and medium sized enterprises. With time in sales, marketing and operations roles he’s built up a broad business knowledge which has given him a deep understanding of the nuts and bolts of how businesses work, from the P&L through to the balance sheet.

Bayleys is New Zealand’s largest commercial and industrial real estate agency and is the only significant national real estate business in this sector of the market that is New Zealand owned and operated. If you’re considering selling your home, your business or leasing commercial property just looking for the perfect location for your business, contact Pete Coldwell to get the right result.

Outside of the work Pete enjoys spending time with the family, his wife and four kids, encouraging them in a variety of sporting and dance activities and most especially enjoying time spent on the snow at Rainbow or in the Sounds fishing.




I would highly recommend Pete Coldwell to anyone buying or selling, he achieved a great result and went out of his way providing information and updates throughout the whole process. I had complete confidence in Pete and was very happy with the outcome that was achieved under trying circumstances. I look forward to working with Pete again in the future.

Pete Coldwell

 was fantastic from start to finish with the sale of our cafe business. Pete has a down to earth and trustworthy personality, this combined with his in-depth knowledge of business - particularly in the hospitality sector, made him an indispensable part of the entire process and most definitely assisted to achieve an excellent final result.

One of the things that most impressed us was his attention to detail right to the end, especially at the settlement and handover stage (which can be quite tricky and stressful but went smoothly thanks to Pete). He actively kept the lines of communication open and clear between all parties and assisted where necessary - we believe Pete went above and beyond. We would highly recommend Pete to any business owner looking to sell, and we wouldn’t hesitate to work with Pete again in the future.

We have recently engaged Pete Coldwell as an agent from Bayleys Real Estate in the sale of our property in Springlands, Blenheim. We enjoyed working with Pete and always found him friendly and cheerful with a really positive attitude. He was great in discussions, realistic, really helpful and supportive to you as a client. Pete was resourceful, had some good ideas, but was also ready to listen to ideas you might put forward, that would inspire or encourage a sale. Pete was energetic and worked hard to find a suitable buyer. We appreciated constant communication, and he often popped in to see us and keep us posted. Our property sold quickly. We enjoyed working with Pete and would happily recommend him to anyone seeking to sell their property in the future.

We’d like to thank Grant McLeod and Pete Coldwell for their excellent job in selling our house recently. We found them to be very knowledgeable about the various selling and marketing options and super attentive throughout the whole process.  We came out with a great result - it was a pleasure dealing with both Pete and Grant and I really do believe the marketing mantra of Bayleys does work!!  Highly recommend!

It’s exciting to think that we can progress with new initiatives in our business – remaining on-site in a property that has served us so well over the years – but without the financial ties. Selling through Bayleys was efficient, professional, and well-worth the commission fee. The entire team was behind us and the process every step of the way. Kurt and Pete worked in partnership, with Tarin behind the scenes, each focussing on their strengths and together they helped us navigate any potential hurdles. Pete is a stickler for detail and helped restructure the leases, while Kurt was the hustler and made sure we were on track for the sale. Bayleys’ national auction manager Daniel Coulson flew down from Auckland to call the auction and the whole Bayleys Marlborough team showed up in force creating an atmosphere to rival Eden Park. There was adrenaline and excitement and to anyone who thinks that real estate agents are overpaid – I say this team earned every cent that we paid them.
